A predominant theme of the 1970s Pop Charts was fragmentation.

A younger generation was seeking its own sound providers and

Top 40 was slipping as the predominant vehicle for consuming and

possessing sounds.  The ‘60s adherents were adrift in long jam

tracks of drum and guitar solos, blues, jazz fusion, folk/protest,

singer/songwriters, punk and blues.  Urban America was dancing the

darkness away with disco and its own extended plays. The Oneness

was coming undone.  The 45-rpm single and, yes, Top 40 radio was

dwindling in its cultural  impart.
