                Some of the stuff from those years is timeless! I love flipping to the 70s on Syrius Radio.

                      Those big black vinyl disks called 33-1/3 rpm LPs way back then that were pretty much all we had to listen to music with, and the 8 track tapes that never really worked right, and the portable casette recorder LOL.
                      Boy were those primative compared to DVDs.

                      I know Linda Ronstadt from her operatic roles, she didn't do a lot of opera but she was talented and her voice had quite a dynamic range.
                      She is probably best known in operatic singing for her role as "Mabel" in Gilbert and Sullivan "Pirates of Penzance" this small theater production was done in Central Park (NYC) back in the early 80s I believe:

                        From the same production she leads into the Major Generals' part, this fellow was simply amazing, this is extremely difficult, rapidly sung tongue twister of an aria and he handles it like a boss, near the end of it at 4:15 after all the applause he sings it even faster still!



                        Here are the lyrics to what the Major General sings:

                        I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
                        I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
                        I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
                        From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical.
                        I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
                        I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
                        About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news, (bothered for a rhyme)
                        With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

                        I'm very good at integral and differential calculus;
                        I know the scientific names of beings animalculous:
                        In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
                        I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

                        I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's;
                        I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,
                        I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,
                        In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous;
                        I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,
                        I know the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes!
                        Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's dinafore
                        And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.

                        Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform,
                        And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform.
                        In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
                        I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

                        In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",
                        When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a javelin,d
                        When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,
                        And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat",
                        When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery,
                        When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery –
                        In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy – (bothered for a rhyme)
                        You'll say a better Major-General has never sat a gee.e

                        For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,
                        Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;
                        But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
                        I am the very model of a modern Major-General
