In its day this music was never identified as a genre, but in the 21st Century, in a nod to its finely crafted nature, it's come to be known as `yacht rock'. Katie looks at the singer-songwriters of Laurel Canyon as well as soft rock pioneers such as the band America.

Contributors include Jay Graydon, John Oates, Mark Ronson and JD Ryznar.
