Music today has been, you guessed it, The Machine That Cried (1973) by String Driven Thing. Starting as three-part harmony folkies in Scotland before growing into a folk-rock ensemble with a core of Chris and Pauline Adams, initially with John Mannion on guitar before another key member, Graham Smith, joined on electric violin and Mannion left. Confusingly, their first album (500€ for an original) and second album are both self-titled but on different labels, the latter on “The Famous Charisma Label”, a single, It’s A Game, was covered by the Bay City Rollers, one extreme to the other or perhaps simple Scottish brotherhood. The Machine That Cried is something of a forgotten classic. Great music if you like that kind of thing.
