When you hear about artists and musicians from the 70's passing away its reality hitting you in the face like a shovel

I liked them both and its sad

RIP

I didn't have their records when they were current but knew the hits by heart as they were all over the radio and TV. I woke up to the news of Helen Reddy on the clock radio and later heard about Mac Davis shortly after. They passed within a couple hours of each other apparently. I used to watch all the music shows on TV on Saturday evenings and Sundays after Disney at 6pm. I wish today's TV had that kind of entertainment still. This news makes me very sad.

Same here. (And because the girls on my school bus sang them incessantly.)

Ditto again. I remember watching both Reddy's and Davis's variety shows--and seeing Reddy on Flip Wilson and Carol Burnett. On the latter, especially, it was clear to me, even as a kid, that Reddy had a wry and occasionally wicked sense of humor.

If I'm remembering right, Reddy also included a few songs penned by Davis on her early albums. She was reputedly a champion of several young, up-and-coming songwriters of the day.
