achieve: At the time meaning that I did a lot of listening and research into that period, but I was a child of the late 70s and early 80s, and on from there, chronologically. But always on the look-out for real music, luckily many good songs were hitting the charts back then. Yes - the ...

achieve: <make up your mind> Why? - I see two viable options/alternatives, and prolly you're right I should not pick one over the other. Troll on gracefully.
