I think the late '70s is when a certain "Everything was so much more fab in the swingin' '60s" 'tude started to crop up, possibly as a reaction to punk's griminess. A nostalgia trip that drove Lennon himself to say in his last interview: "We were the hip ones of the sixties. But the world is not like the sixties. The whole world has changed. Produce your own dream. It's quite possible to do anything...the unknown is what it is. And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody scurrying around chasing dreams, illusions."

I think I might've popped down to see the last couple of minutes of Yes at that Glasto, by the way. Everyone else in the audience seemed to emanate pleased vibes, though I wasn't really in a position to judge.
