Fools Gold is a killer track, weren't we spoilt in the 70s as youths.. having this stuff at our ears and fingertips?
I have been re-listening to Johnny The Fox over the last 2-3 days as I tended to skip over it to a certain extent down the years for no real reason other than it followed Jailbreak and the Live And Dangerous album was around that time anyway the album has some great tracks on it including Fools Gold which although I have heard before I kind of 'glossed over it' in the past but it is worth a closer listen to be honest as it's one of the excellent tracks on already good album.

Sometimes things from box sets end up on Youtube. I've never bought a box set before, so I hope almost everything ends up on Youtube.

I gotta differ.

Yes, we were spoiled in our youths as far as music, but it was hardly at our fingertips.

You either heard it on the radio, when the radio decided to play it, or you earned the money and went out and bought it.

And then you saved your every spare penny and spent it on the ultimate prize... concert tickets. And if you missed out on that, you had to wait. And wait. And wait.

Nowadays everything is at your fingertips. There's no anticipation, no suspense. You can hear whatever you want, whenever you want.

Killing the mystique even more is the fact that you can SEE anybody you want, anytime you want.

Rock stars used to be mysterious, larger than life, dare I say it...God like.

That's because you only ever saw pictures in Creem or Hit Parader and the like, and on album covers.

Once in a while you'd get to see your favorites doing a couple songs on The Midnight Special or Don Kirshner's Rock Concert.

Now you can see a video for darn near every song on an album that was just released last Tuesday. (I don't know when albums started getting dropped )

Totally agree with your post above Vehicle basically music has become devalued maybe in the last 25-30 years since the days of Napster and down loading music that started in the late 1990s and maybe even earlier with the advent of cds in the early 1980s although cds didn't really take off until a decade later in the 1990s.
