 The History of Rock Music - The Seventies
The foundations of funk music had been laid in the second half of the 1960s by James Brown, the MG's, Sly & The Family Stone, the Meters, Dyke & The Blazers, etc. The syncopated polyrhythm, the groovey bass line, the metallic guitar timbre, the falsetto wail were all introduced in the 1960s.
Disco-music became a producer's music, and a studio-oriented music, propelled by artificial instruments, the exact opposite of rock music, which emphasized the live experience and was played with electric instruments.
The golden era of disco music basically ended in 1979, the year of the anthems, notably the Village People's YMCA (1979), produced by Jacques Morali, and Sister (Debbie) Sledge's We Are Family (1979), written by Chic's Edwards and Rodgers, which both celebrated the disco community from the inside.

 Steel Pulse - August 1978 Black Music article
In strictly musical terms I suppose this album merits something between four and four and a half stars - but as an example of the still developing British reggae it is unarguably five-star essential listening.
For Pulse's ever hardening-up style is an important lyrical and instrumental milestone in the music, and a hugely idiosyncratic and enjoyable sub-stream within it.
I have only two real gripes about this album - there are barely any examples of the group's rivetting instrudub workouts and none whatsoever of their immaculate accapella vocal breaks, two major ingredients in their style and ones that have played a significant role in their onstage live breakthrough.

So venture back to the days when NOTHING in music was digitally reproduced - when musicians had only their God-given ability and their instruments to rely on - and revel in the glory of true musicianship.
As far as I'm concerned, Bruford is the only member of Yes who went on to create memorable and meaningful music (unless you go for the bombast of, for instance, Rick Wakeman's "Journey to the Center of the Earth"--a nice experiment and all, but oh so dated now).
The display of his skills is never overpowering: his talent is placed firmly in the service of the music.

In January, I ended up listening most to three albums: Philip Glass: Early Keyboard Music (new recordings of 60s compositions), Terry Riley's Shri Camel from the 70s, and Return to Forever(featuring Chick Corea)'s Where Have I Known You Before from the 70s.
To cope with the different but similar music, I placed them on a continuum from rigorous/hard/composed/serious to casual/light/improvised/fun.
