Building a Better Way: Music from the 1974 Chevrolet Announcement Film • "An interesting look at some of the musical trends from the early 70s. A little Isaac Hayes, a little John Denver, some Allman Brothers and a few sounds from that new-fangled instrument, the synthesizer."

Enormous cars with poor mileage released just as the price of gasoline skyrockets.

Oh, wait, it's from 1974.

Wow! If I'm not hearing Booker T. and the MGs and SuperFly-era Curtis Mayfield in there, they're the best imitations I've ever heard. I'd love to know more about this.

Yeah. Cool music. And I'd love to know who the musicians actually are. And also, where this stuff was found. Does someone have an LP with this stuff on it?
