This is a working attempt to bring together as many true and die-hard fans of this seemingly endless music as possible. There are not very many of us as a whole, but those of us that know of this music can appreciate how deep and vast the music goes beyond the HOT 100. The radio material is only the tip 'o the iceberg. SO much material out there, "underground" or unknown to the general public from this BEST DECADE IN ROCK, was and is just as good, and many times better than much of the radio and TOP 40 music that we grew up with or hear when ,if ever, we turn on that FM station. I have compiled an e-mail list so all of us can communicate, learn from, and trade this music with each other. The PSPOT'S E-MAIL LIST PAGE is complete. Also, I've created and will create more BEST OF LISTS and OTHER MUSIC LISTS, as well as MUSIC TRIVIA QUESTIONS to test our Garage, Psych, & Pop-Sike knowledge. Don't forget to check out the PSPOT'S POWER LINK PAGE. Anyway, let me know what you think, and keep the music alive!
