Music

  • After hour clubs
    • "Continental Baths was getting popular around the time I started at Better Days (may/july 1972). Larry Levan was just getting started at that time."--Tee Scott
  • Blaxploitation
    • 1972 saw the artistic peak of the blaxploitation soundtrack. Several of America's biggest black artists were working on soundtracks simultaneously.
  • Glam rock
    • Glam rock, androgyny, David Bowie, New York Dolls
  • Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968
    • Rock critic (and future Patti Smith guitarist) Lenny Kaye first defined and named the movement in 1972 as compiler of Nuggets. This legendary double album was perhaps the first collection of older recordings to treat the music as worthy of lasting attention and not just as a quickly fading "oldie but goodie" memory.
  • Dub
    • In 1972, encouraged by Bunny Lee, King Tubby, an electronics engineer and sound system owner, began to mix records in four-track, and by late 1973 his name graced many b-side ' versions' (the name is a corruption of instrumental version, or 'Version 2') of other people's records, notably those of Bunny Lee and Lee Perry. --Colin Larkin, 1998
