Item ID: 446854

With pop music's volume knob adjusted for deflation in the early '70s, softness begat smoothness. Crewmen arrived from the worlds of jazz, folk, rock and soul, all peddling a product that was sincere, leisurely and lofty. A sound that was buoyant, crisp, defined. Sometimes classified as west-coast and, later, yacht rock, the focus is on blue-eyed harmonies in the vein of f.i. Hall & Oates, the cocaine-dusted Fender Rhodes of Michael McDonald, or the combover strums of James Taylor. Here are 20 cuts representing the glassy apex of rock's softer side.
