More Sirius/XM Radio: the Flute

I posted here about musical instruments used back in the 60s that you just don't hear much anymore in today's music.  I focused on the organ, harpsichord, and the tambourine.

Today's forgotten instrument is the flute:

Heard it in a Love Song (Marshall Tucker Band )

Pied Piper (Crispian St. Peters)

And of course, Thick as a Brick (Jethro Tull, around 4:40 for the flute work).

The Marshall Tucker song often is in my head while I run easy trails. As a feminist, however, I am torn between the excellent music versus the misogynistic lyrics.  Nevertheless, enjoy!
