This awesome ad showcases just how terrible mainstream music has always been, even back in the groovy early seventies, just two years after Woodstock. Baby Boomers all like to pretend everybody was separating their weed on copies of Rolling Stone and listening to “real music” like Led Zeppelin and the Stones, but that’s far from reality. What were people actually listening to? Herb Alpert, Petula Clark, and the Association. At least they only had to pay $1.57. Nice to know that almost 40 years later you can still pick up near-mint copies of any of those records for the exact same price at your local Goodwill store.
