1977

With a major decade for tech development just ahead, 1977 was a significant year for technology. Laying the foundation for major tech advancements for the everyday person, there were two big events worth noting for this year.

1977

The first event took place in Chicago, Illinois, with the demonstration of the world’s first, all-in-one, home computer – the Commodore PET. Along with this was the second event, the incorporation of Apple Computer. The combination of tech development for the everyday consumer and the incorporation of Apple would eventually lead to major tech breakthroughs in the coming decades.

In music, there were several notable developments. Fleetwood Mac, for instance, released their highly acclaimed album, Rumours. In another notable album release, The Clash released their debut, self-titled album, The Clash. In yet another album release this year, the Sex Pistols released their famous, or what some would call infamous, album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. Queen also released their News of the World album, which included some of their most famous songs, including “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.”

In another major music development, Elvis Presley gave his last concert at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Indiana in June of 1977. He would pass away soon after this concert on August 16 at his home in Graceland.

There were some major developments in literature and film as well. In literature, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion was published. This final collection of legends from Middle-earth was published posthumously, with Tolkien’s son, Christopher, playing a big part in having these works published.

In film, Star Wars opened in movie theatres, launching an iconic franchise that has captured the collective imagination of our culture for generations. In other film developments, Saturday Night Fever was released this year, helping launch the acting career of John Travolta and Disney released the animated classic, The Rescuers. The 49th Academy Awards were held this year, with Best Picture going to Rocky, starring Sylvester Stallone.
