I should give credit where it is due. My sons listened to a lot of my music because I played it a lot, but they were the ones to turned me on to Stevie Ray. I didn't know who he was until years after his death... even though I had occasionally heard a song or two on the radio, it never clicked.
Also don't discount modern... maybe not to your taste, but there are a couple of modern groups I like, and I think work well with my 70's musical tastes. They would be good if you like classical music with a rock infusion.
One modern group on my IPOD is a British group... Bond. The members aren't bad on the eyes either.
Some of their music is good for keeping tempo up, and others are good for warm-up or cool down.
Another modern group I haven't tried yet for workouts, is Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Their Christmas albums would be nice for seasonal flavor, and their non-Christmas "Beethoven's Last Night" would be interesting to explore for pieces with a good tempo for workouts as well. Their next non-Christmas album "Night Castle" is in the works... and I will buy it as soon as I know it is out.
