T.Rex - Electric Warrior (1971) (30th Anniversary Remaster Edit 2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Japanese limited edition reissue of 1971 album with 8 bonus tracks, which are all 'work in progress', including 'Rip Off', 'Mambo Sun', 'Cosmic Dancer', 'Monolith', 'Get It On', 'Planet Queen', 'The Motivator' & 'Life's A Gas'. This limited version includes a CD slipcase with drawings on both sides and a poster (approx. 9 x 12 inches) of Marc Bolan in a comfortable position.

Electric Warrior, T. Rex's best album, distills elements of Marc Bolan's earlier acoustic period with a dynamic rock rhythm section--drummer Bill Legend and bassist Steve Currie--and lush arrangements by producer Tony Visconti. Featuring the classics "Bang a Gong (Get It On)," "Jeepster," and "Mambo Sun," Warrior ranges from the space blues of "Lean Woman Blues" to the punk jazz of "Rip Off," with a sound fleshed out by chamber strings and the falsetto harmonies of ex-Turtles and Mothers of Invention members Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. (Zappa sideman Ian McDonald plays sax as well.) Touches such as the arcing cellos of "Cosmic Dancer" and the sexy rhythms of "Planet Queen" perfectly bring to life Bolan's imaginative world of "diamond star halos" and "shadowless horses." A must for any serious collector of British rock classics. This remastered reissue is fleshed out with a half-dozen bonus tracks and a band interview...J. Rotondi

The album that essentially kick-started the U.K. glam rock craze, Electric Warrior completes T. Rex's transformation from hippie folk-rockers into flamboyant avatars of trashy rock & roll. There are a few vestiges of those early days remaining in the acoustic-driven ballads, but Electric Warrior spends most of its time in a swinging, hip-shaking groove powered by Marc Bolan's warm electric guitar. The music recalls not just the catchy simplicity of early rock & roll, but also the implicit sexuality -- except that here, Bolan gleefully hauls it to the surface, singing out loud what was once only communicated through the shimmying beat. He takes obvious delight in turning teenage bubblegum rock into campy sleaze, not to mention filling it with pseudo-psychedelic hippie poetry. In fact, Bolan sounds just as obsessed with the heavens as he does with sex, whether he's singing about spiritual mysticism or begging a flying saucer to take him away. It's all done with the same theatrical flair, but Tony Visconti's spacious, echoing production makes it surprisingly convincing. Still, the real reason Electric Warrior stands the test of time so well -- despite its intended disposability -- is that it revels so freely in its own absurdity and willful lack of substance. Not taking himself at all seriously, Bolan is free to pursue whatever silly wordplay, cosmic fantasies, or non sequitur imagery he feels like; his abandonment of any pretense to art becomes, ironically, a statement in itself. Bolan's lack of pomposity, back-to-basics songwriting, and elaborate theatrics went on to influence everything from hard rock to punk to new wave. But in the end, it's that sense of playfulness, combined with a raft of irresistible hooks, that keeps Electric Warrior such an infectious, invigorating listen today...S. Huey

Nazareth - Rampant (1974) (Rampant) (30th Anniversary Edition)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Nazareth's second album of 1974 finds the group tempering the four-on-the-floor hard rock attack they developed on Loud and Proud by working a surprising and effective Southern rock edge into the songs. The end result is an album that sounds like a crossbreeding of early AC/DC and Lynyrd Skynyrd at their hardest rocking. Some of the country-tinged highlights include "Glad When You're Gone," a funny kissoff to an unwanted lover that pairs hillbilly-styled singing with wah-wah-drenched guitar riffs, and "Jet Lag," a tongue-in-cheek look at life as a touring rock & roller that is driven by some.more… However, the finest song in this vein is the powerful opener "Silver Dollar Forger"; this hard rocking tale of an outlaw racing home with the cops on his tail has a suprisingly elaborate arrangement and plenty of driving guitar riffs. It feels like the theme song to the great 1970s car chase movie that never was. Rampant also spawned a hit single and radio favorite with "Shanghai'd in Shanghai," a pile-driving rocker that works an effective stomping beat into its shout-along chorus. The downside of this album is that it lacks the experimental edge of Razamanaz; there is little variation in the style or musical elements from song to song. That said, Rampant is a consistently energetic and engaging collection of Southern-tinged hard rock that will please Nazareth's fanbase and may even win over fans of groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet with its effective grasp of Southern boogie.

Grand Funk Railroad - Phoenix (1972) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Having scored four consecutive Top Ten albums in the previous two years, Grand Funk Railroad may not have seemed to casual observers like a band who needed to rise phoenix-like from the ashes, but the title of the band's seventh album referred to its re-emergence after a litigious split from manager/producer Terry Knight. Now, they were producing themselves, and they added organist Craig Frost, credited here as a sideman, though he went on to join the band formally. The biggest change, however, was a musical maturity. After releasing five studio albums in a little over two years, Grand Funk waitedmore… more than a year before releasing Phoenix, and in that time they managed to come up with more variety than they had displayed before. "Someone," for example, was a surprisingly gentle ballad, and "Rain Keeps Fallin'" was stronger melodically than most of songwriter Mark Farner's previous efforts. Unlike earlier albums, Phoenix didn't seem like one rudimentary rocker after another, which made it Grand Funk's most listenable album so far. And that's not to say it didn't rock, as the leadoff instrumental, "Flight of the Phoenix," and the Top 40 hit that closed the set, "Rock 'n Roll Soul," demonstrated. Unfortunately, Farner's lyrical abilities had not increased, while his self-importance had. "I Just Gotta Know," "So You Won't Have to Die," and "Freedom Is for Children" all contained political exhortations expressed in simple-minded terms, the worst being "So You Won't Have to Die," in which Farner, later to become a Christian artist, claimed Jesus had spoken to him on the subject of overpopulation. After such cringe-inducing foolishness, the band's return to rocking with "Rock 'n Roll Soul" could only be welcomed...Robert Hoffnung

Redbone - Message From A Drum (1971) (Witch Queen Of New Orleans 1991)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The third "Redbone" album contains their second hit: "The Witch Queen of New-Orleans". Another great song, maybe one of the best in the whole Rock History. But the album is much more then that. Wonderful guitar parts, swirling around, overwhelming, taking you far ("Emotions").
Listen, relisten and listen again…

Redbone was formed and led by Native American brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas, who, before they formed the group, were the writers of the song “Nicky Hoeky.” Redbone is best known for its two Top 40 hits: “The Witch Queen of New Orleans” reached No. 21 in 1972, and “Come And Get Your Love” reached No. 5 in 1974. Both of those hits had a swampy feel to them, as did much of the music on Redbone’s albums, especially Potlatch and Redbone, both from 1970. That swampy and slightly spooky feel holds true for much of Beaded Dreams Through Turquoise Eyes, especially the tracks “One More Time,” “Cookin' With D'Redbone” and the oddly titled “Moon When Four Eclipse.” There are a few tracks – “Suzi Girl,” “I’ll Never Stop Loving You” and the title track most notably – that seem to me like missteps, with swirling strings and unimaginative beats echoing the proto-disco hits that were becoming more and more prevalent in 1974.

UFO - No Heavy Petting (1976) (Remaster Edit 2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Following the breakout success of Phenomenon and Force It, UFO had finally ascended to the first division of British hard rock. And after hiring a second guitarist and keyboard player in Danny Peyronnel, Schenker and Mogg led the group back into the studio to record their fifth album, No Heavy Petting. A noticeably cautious effort, Petting stuck so close to the rules laid down by Force It that all the excitement of the band's performance wound up slipping through the cracks. Gutsy opener "Natural Thing" was competent enough to become a concert regular, but lukewarm material like "Can You Roll Her" and "Reasons Love" simply added nothing new. And bass player Pete Way didn't help things any with his only contribution, the plodding, amazingly dull "On With the Action." Even the album's best moment, the beautifully executed "I'm a Loser" (which unleashes Schenker for one of his most jaw-dropping solos ever), mimics Force It's "Out in the Street" before closing with a piano pattern straight out of progressive rockers Kansas' "No One Together." The overly dramatic "Belladonna" (complete with synthesizer-simulated harpsichord), on the other hand, is mostly a casualty of time; the kind of ballad that was effective enough in its time, but simply hasn't aged well. Thankfully, UFO would rebound in spades the following year, delivering their best all-around studio effort, Lights Out. [The 2008 edition included bonus tracks.]...E. Rivadavia

Pat Benatar - In the Heat of the Night (1979) (Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pat Benatar has earned her right as a true diva! With a voice like that it just gives you chills! This album itroduced "Heartbreaker" which is one of her big hits! Yes this is a fine piece of work and is a must for any Pat Benatar fan!!!

With her debut recording In the Heat of the Night, Pat Benatar wasted no time starting out of the gate with the furious leadoff track "Heartbreaker," which solidified her place in a class of women who were taking the rock world by storm in the late '70s. In the Heat of the Night was an album that obviously had its share of filler, but the one-two punch of "Heartbreaker" and the John Cougar Mellencamp tune "I Need a Lover" leading off the album made enough of a statement to put her on the pop charts. The deflated three tracks following are easily forgettable, especially the sci-fi '50s ballad "My Clone Sleeps Alone," but the remainder of the album packs enough grit and solid songwriting (especially the Blondie-esque "So Sincere") that it remains an impressive debut and foreshadows a glimpse of great things to come...R.

Cat Stevens - Collected (3CD Remaster Set 2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Collected Cat Stevens is a three-disc box set that by no means eclipses the four-disc package released in 2001, bit does give it a good run for its money. Largely chronological, but oddly relegating some of Stevens' earliest hits to the end of the final disc, the box opens and closes with two of his most emotive numbers, the hit "Lady D'Arbanville," and the questioning "Father and Son," first heard in their familiar studio form, and then as live recordings. In between times, a total of 54 tracks bounces through Stevens career, from "Matthew & Son" through to "*Midday (Avoid City After Dark)," credited to the singer's latter-day Yusuf Islam identity, and it's difficult to pick fault with any of the inclusions -- even those which, like "Moonshadow," "Morning Has Broken" and, indeed, "Father and Son," are so tweely saccharin that it seems incredible anybody ever took them seriously. They did, though, and Stevens remains one of the few early-'70s singer/songwriters whose ouvre continues to attract new listeners with every passing generation. This smartly projected box will only add to their numbers...D. Thompson

Paul McCartney's Wings - Band On The Run (1973)(2CD - 25th Anniversary Edit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The consensus of critics, as well as cold hard sales figures, says that Band on the Run was Paul McCartney's most successful solo album -- and so, shortly after the 25th anniversary of its release, Band on the Run got the deluxe boxed treatment. The original album itself was remastered yet again, the sound improved only slightly over previous versions, and the track order made to follow that of the U.S. release (the British version does not include "Helen Wheels"). The real attraction of this box, though, is the second disc, a radio-style program containing interviews with Paul, Linda Mac, Wings member Denny Laine, and other contributors, plus demos, rehearsals, assorted outtakes, and edited portions from the original album. The documentary makes it clear that not only was Band on the Run an artistic triumph over very trying conditions -- the defection of two-fifths of Wings and the whimsical decision to record in the primitive, sometimes dangerous conditions of Lagos, Nigeria -- it was a marketing triumph as well. Capitol promotion man Al Coury tells how he spotted the hitmaking potential of "Jet," the album's second single and the one that really launched it into chart orbit. A lot of attention, perhaps too much, is also paid to the making of the album's cover photo, elevating it to the level of the cover art of Sgt. Pepper's and Abbey Road. Interestingly, Laine gets one fact wrong on the interview disc -- they played "Picasso's Last Words," not "Mamunia," in Ginger Baker's Lagos studio -- which Mark Lewisohn's authoritative liner notes make clear. You also get a reproduction of the poster that came with the LP. All of this comes at a two-CDs-for-the-price-of-one deal -- which should be downright irresistible for those who haven't replaced their original LPs...R. S. Ginell

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - The Roaring Silence (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The reason that The Roaring Silence became Manfred Mann's Earth Band's best-selling album may have been because of both Bruce Springsteen-penned singles, but its instrumental makeup, by way of Mann's keyboard manipulation coupled with Chris Thompson's chiseled singing, had just as much of an affect. "Blinded By the Light" and "Spirit in the Night" gave the band hits at both ends of the Top 40 spectrum, with "Blinded" going to number one while the mysteriously-sounding "Spirit in the Night" edged in at number 40 six months later. Outside of the singles, The Roaring Silence is made up of clean-cut, well-established synthesizer and guitar work, with touches of techno psychedelia that are sometimes lengthy but never messy. Tracks such as "Questions," "This Side of Paradise," and even "Starbird" uncover the band's creativity and instrumental wit. Mann is careful not to stray too far with his keys, and his compliance with Thompson's vocals are noticeable in almost every track. Aside from the music, The Roaring Silence basks in veiled poetry, cryptic but at the same time intriguing, verging on the complexities of progressive rock but far from its pretentiousness. Eventually achieving gold status, The Roaring Silence both commercially and artistically became the group's finest effort...Bob Hope

Simple Minds - Live in the City of Light (1987)(2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Simple Minds - Live in the City of Light was recorded at Le Zenith in Paris in August '86 and originally released in the spring of '87. It is a definitive live album of its era and for Simple Minds as a band. The Album is a superb snapshot of the 'minds' at their stadium filling best in the 80's, and 17 years on, the production and recording quality still sounds on the whole pretty good. There are no really weak tracks here but the inclusion of Oh Jungleland and a dubious medley of Love Song (a great live track in it's own right)Sun CityDance to the music now sounds a little out of place alongsidemore… other traditional 'minds' live classics which have lasted in their live set to the present day such as Waterfront, Alive and Kicking, Don't you forget about me and the sublime New Gold Dream, but as this was originally recorded 18 years ago we can forgive these inclusions, as creative ideas and outlook for the band will have changed a great deal in that time.Despite this Album being originally released 17 years ago, Live in the City of Light still stands up as a good live recording with versions of Ghost dancing, Big Sleep, Someone Somewhere in Summertime and New Gold Dream being my standout tracks. For me the weakest area of this album is Jim Kerr's vocals which are at times putting it kindly variable, particularly when the going gets tough and he has to push his voice. The vocals ending up more of a gruff shout at times, and it is for this reason why the album doesn't get the full 5 stars from me. Also the keyboards and percussion can at times come across as over indulgent and occasionally too dominant in the mix, perhaps an indication of the era and production techniques used at the time the album was recorded, and also the bands approach to their music at the time.In many ways it is a shame this remains their only official live album release to date as having witnessed their live performance recently on the Floating World tour, I am happy to report that they sound even better now than they do on this album. Live in the City of Light mainly includes tracks that attained chart success up to and including the excellent Once upon a time album, so no tracks from Street Fighting years, the superb Real Life or Good News from the Next World all of which were released subsequent to this Album. Truthfully Live in the City of Light is really one for the die hard fans, but if you are one and haven't yet heard or purchased this album, do so and Enjoy...Rainer Zuphall

Birth Control - Hoodoo Man (1973) (Remaster Edit 2005)

Free Image Hosting

German band Birth Control seems to have had it's ups and downs, and this, their third album, is probably one of their ups. Some people surely will disagree though. This is hard prog with a jazzy touch, and their sense of humor shines through at times. A lot of the music reminds me a little of pre-heavy metal Deep Purple. This has their big song "Gamma Ray" which is considered a classic in Germany. Five bonus tracks, including the single version of said song in two parts. Not really what you would call Krautrock, but there's some good experimental jazzy prog here...Bob Hope

Jethro Tull - Songs From The Wood (1977) (2003 Remaster Edit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tull was a controversial band back in the 70's. Were they a rock band at all? Were they even a prog. rock band like Yes and Floyd? Or were they something totally unclassifiable? With an enigmatic leader, Ian Anderson, they have some of the biggest hits ever, Aqualung and Locomotive Breath, both with plenty of radio play, and followed up that success with two albums that had only one song each (Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, both which strangely became #1 albums- how is that possible?). Then in 1977, after a couple of other very successful albums, they popped out Songs From the Woodmore…. This album rocks in a real woodsy sort of way. The title track sounds great on the remastered version, especially the vocals. Hunting Girl is a real standout too. This album stands as a musical work that will never go out of style. It is timeless and a keeper in your collection...Robert Hoffnung

Nektar - Sunday Night At The London Roundhouse(1974) (2CD Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A short and deceiving example what Nektar is capable of. Recorded live before ENGLISH audience, only first song, “Desolation Valley” from 1972 “A Tab in the Ocean” album, carries a PROGRESSIVE mark. Although other songs, like “A Day in the Life of a Preacher” and “Ooop’s”, do carry a Nektar sound mark, are just more or less hard rock songs played in a different manner, and with style and instruments commonly not used in hard rock. “Mundetango” sounds like some group is practicing to keep rhythm steady or to play a new song, while too short “Summer Breeze” looks like the beginning of some longer suite, and ends faster then it started.Remember the Past!

Led Zeppelin - BBC Sessions (2CD-Remaster Edit1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Led Zeppelin 's BBC sessions were among the most popular bootleg items of the rock & roll era, appearing on a myriad of illegal records and CDs. They were all the more popular because of the lack of official Led Zeppelin live albums, especially since The Song Remains the Same failed to capture the essence of the band. For anyone who hadn't heard the recordings, the mystique of Zeppelin's BBC sessions was somewhat mystifying, but the official 1997 release of the double-disc BBC Sessions offered revelations for any fan who hadn't yet heard this music. While some collectors will be dismayed by the slight trimming on the "Whole Lotta Love Medley," almost all of the group's sessions are included here, and they prove why live Zeppelin was the stuff of legend. The 1969 sessions, recorded shortly after the release of the first album, are fiery and dynamic, outstripping the studio record for sheer power. Early versions of "You Shook Me," "Communication Breakdown," "What Is and What Should Never Be," and "Whole Lotta Love" hit harder than their recorded counterparts, while covers of Sleepy John Estes' "The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair," Robert Johnson's "Travelling Riverside Blues," and Eddie Cochran's "Something Else" are welcome additions to the Zeppelin catalog, confirming their folk, blues, and rockabilly roots as well as their sense of vision. Zeppelin's grand vision comes into sharper relief on the second disc, which is comprised of their 1971 sessions. They still have their primal energy, but they're more adventurous, branching out into folk, twisted psychedelia, and weird blues-funk. Certainly, BBC Sessions is the kind of album that will only appeal to fans, but anyone who's ever doubted Zeppelin's power or vision will be set straight with this record. ..S. T. Erlewine

Blondie - Greatest Hits (2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If you consulted a Blondie discography in the fall of 2002, you would see a slew of compilations listed, and you might wonder why a new Greatest Hits was needed. But a closer examination would reveal that there really is a niche into which such a collection would fall: that of a full-priced, single-disc, CD-era hits compilation covering the band's entire career. Although still in print, The Best of Blondie is a 12-track release from the LP era, first issued back in 1981 in between Blondie's fifth and sixth regular albums. 1988's Once More Into the Bleach combines Blondie and Debbie Harry solo tracks. 1993's Blonde & Beyond is a rarities set. 1994's The Platinum Collection fills two CDs and is thus pricey. 1995's The Remix Project contains remixes. There have also been short, discount-priced collections and overseas compilations, but the niche remains -- and Greatest Hits fills it. It contains among its 19 tracks all ten of the band's U.S. chart singles as well as their major U.K. hits that did not chart in America. "X Offender," Blondie's 1976 debut single, is included, and so is "Maria," their 1999 comeback hit. By sequencing the album out of chronological order, the compilers emphasize the band's eclecticism. You don't get to hear Blondie's evolution from their early bubblegum punk style into the efficient power pop of the Mike Chapman productions and on into ersatz disco, rap, and Caribbean music; everything is all mixed up. The tropical 1980-1981 hit "The Tide Is High," for example, is followed by the belligerent "X Offender" from four years earlier, and the tough-talking "Rip Her to Shreds" gives way to the early hip-hop of "Rapture." Chronological order would have been better, but the hits are all here...W. Ruhlmann

Scorpions - Fly To The Rainbow (1974) (2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On their second effort, Fly to the Rainbow, the Scorpions begin to establish their trademark hard-rock sound while exorcising the last of their remaining psychedelic hippie tendencies. In fact, the band bursts out of the gate in surprisingly straightforward fashion with the hard rocking "Speedy's Coming" before resorting to the aforementioned bad habits on otherwise promising tracks such as "Fly People Fly" and "They Need a Million"; the first never really gets off the ground, seeming almost like a prelude to the title track, and the second is let down by the weak vocals of guitarists Rudolf Schenkermore… and Uli Jon Roth, who have no business competing against vocalist Klaus Meine. Roth insists, however, on taking center stage for "Drifting Sun," which exposes his shameless Hendrix-isms, down to the opening riff lifted straight out of "Spanish Castle Magic." And while it closes the album in rather schizophrenic fashion, the epic nine-minute title track would become a concert standard — albeit without its senseless folky intro. Fly to the Rainbow is another growing experience for the Scorpions; and the band would truly hit the jackpot with the following year's In Trance...Bob Hope

Moody Blues - Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (1971) (Remaster Edit 1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The best-realized of their classic albums, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour was also the last of the group's albums for almost a decade to be done under reasonably happy and satisfying circumstances -- for the last time with this lineup, they went into the studio with a reasonably full song bag and a lot of ambition and brought both as far as time would allow, across close to four months (interrupted by a tour of the United States right in the middle). Virtually everywhere you listen on this record, the lush melodies and the sound of Michael Pinder's Mellotron (augmented here by the Moog synthesizer and a brace of other instruments) just sweep over the music, and where they don't, Justin Hayward's guitar pyrotechnics on pieces like "The Story in Your Eyes" elevate the hard rocking side of the music, in tandem with John Lodge's muscular bass work -- which still leaves plenty of room for a cello here, and a grand piano there, on top of Ray Thomas' flute, and Graeme Edge's ever more ambitious percussion. "Emily's Song." "Nice to Be Here," and "My Song" are among the best work the group ever did, and "The Story in Your Eyes" is the best rock number they ever cut, with a bracing beat and the kind of lyrical complexity one more expected out of George Harrison at the time. Sad to say, the group would never be this happy with an album again -- at least not for a lot of years -- or with their commitment to being a group, though they would leave one more highly worthwhile album before taking a hiatus for most of the rest of the 1970s...B.

Jethro Tull - Thick Is A Brick (1972) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jethro Tull's first LP-length epic is a masterpiece in the annals of progressive rock, and one of the few works of its kind that still holds up decades later. Mixing hard rock and English folk music with classical influences, set to stream-of-consciousness lyrics so dense with imagery that one might spend weeks pondering their meaning -- assuming one feels the need to do so -- the group created a dazzling tour de force, at once playful, profound, and challenging, without overwhelming the listener. The original LP was the best-sounding, best-engineered record Tull had ever released, easily capturing the shifting dynamics between the soft all-acoustic passages and the electric rock crescendos surrounding them...Bruce Eder

Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield Again (1967)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Due in part to personnel problems which saw Bruce Palmer and Neil Young in and out of the group, Buffalo Springfield's second album did not have as unified an approach as their debut. Yet it doesn't suffer for that in the least -- indeed, the group continued to make major strides in both their songwriting and arranging, and this record stands as their greatest triumph. Stephen Stills' "Bluebird" and "Rock & Roll Woman" were masterful folk-rockers that should have been big hits (although they did manage to become small ones); his lesser-known contributions "Hung Upside Down" and the jazz-flavored "Everydays" were also first-rate. Young contributed the Rolling Stones-derived "Mr. Soul," as well as the brilliant "Expecting to Fly" and "Broken Arrow," both of which employed lush psychedelic textures and brooding, surrealistic lyrics that stretched rock conventions to their breaking point. Richie Furay (who had not written any of the songs on the debut) takes tentative songwriting steps with three compositions, although only "A Child's Claim to Fame," with its memorable dobro hooks by James Burton, meets the standards of the material by Stills and Young; the cut also anticipates the country-rock direction of Furay's post-Springfield band, Poco. Although a slightly uneven record that did not feature the entire band on several cuts, the high points were so high and plentiful that its classic status cannot be denied...R. Unterberger

Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield (1966)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Originally saw the blessed light of day in 1967, some oldie fans may not realize that Buffalo Springfield actual had several full length albums out. Can't believe these guys had just one hit. Anyway, this twelve track self-titled CD reissue has several should have could have been hits as far as I'm concerned. Cuts like "Go & Say Goodbye", the Beatles like "Sit Down I Think I Love You", "Everybody's Wrong", "Burned", the jamming bluesy "Leave" & "Pay The Price" (with it's catchy riffs) along with their sole hit "For What It's Worth" all make this disc a keeper. It's obvious this band was a heavy influence on later artists such as the Eagles, Gram Parsons, BoDeans & the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Jethro Tull - A (1980) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By now everyone probably knows the old story of "A." It was supposed to be Mr. Anderson's first solo recording (Anderson: Alert!), but the recording company heard it and sested this should be the new Tull sound of the eighties instead, and well...The rest, as they sAy, is history. While It certainly tends to lean a greater distance away from previous Tull recordings, the fact that it is Mr. Anderson still writing, singing and playing, and that Martin Barre is still along for the ride playing guitar, it isn't surprising that "A" still works as a Jethro Tull album, for the most part anyway. Theremore… is one place in particular where it may have ventured too far off the Jethro map for many Tull fans of the day, but even then I confess that I still have a bit of a soft spot for Batteries Not Included.
"A" is a keyboard heavy album that Aims for A more progressive rock stance, taken Amid more topical subjects of the dAy. Crossfire starts off the album, sans flute, in a song frantic with electronic noises, keyboards and guitars. It's a great album opener that accurately reflects the turmoil of the song's description of a hostage crisis. Flyingdale Flyer takes another topic of the day event, an almost missile crisis spurned by a technical glitch in a missile tracking station, and plays the drama out in typical Tull lyrical fashion, but fashioned again with a heavier emphasis on the keyboards. Working John, Working Joe is one of the more Jethro Tull-like moments on the record: acoustic riffing, switching with electric. However the subject matter is grounded more firmly in the present tense than perhaps it would have otherwise been. Black Sunday is progressive rock done with Pink Floyd-ian grandiosity, and it is easily one of the album's highlights. If you've never heard this track you should buy the album for this song alone. Protect and Survive is fast paced Tull, rocking out like a radiation device's needle at Chernobyl, with lyrics that mock the absurd guidelines provided by the British government on how to survive a nuclear attack. Another favorite of mine on "A." Uniforms sounds appropriately dissonant, while 4WD traverses the back roads of rock's grittier outlands. Pine Marten's Jig is a fast paced instrumental showcasing the talents of all, especially the guest musician: Eddie Jobson and his glass violin. And Further On is more progressive drama, and one of the finest album endings to have graced a Tull record.

Hotlegs - Thinks, School Stinks (pre 10cc 1971) (1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Digitally remastered Japanese pressing packaged in a miniature LP sleeve of the 1970 album by this trio, which spawned the hit 'Neanderthal Man'. The three members re-emerged a year later, with the addition of Graham Gouldman, as 10cc..

This is the album by the group that did "Neanderthal Man", one of the biggest hits of 1970. The same personnel would become 10cc a couple years later, and whatever charm, whatever excitement fans found in Godley & Creme's later work is already present here. The album bombed, possibly because only one other track was anything similar to the big hit. If you like 10cc at all you should get this. Even if you don't actually it's definitely worth a listen.

Bad Company - Best Ballads (1996)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Bad Company was a British blues-rock supergroup formed in 1973 featuring members of Free (Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke), Mott the Hoople (Mick Ralphs) and King Crimson (Boz Burrell). Their eponymous debut album was released in 1974 and was an immediate hit, promoted by the singles "Can't Get Enough" and ""Movin' On". They repeated this success the following year with Straight Shooter which spawned the singles "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Feel Like Makin' Love". The albums they released during this incarnation of the band peaked with the platinum-selling Run with the Pack but began to decline towards the end of the 70s. After the comparatively poor performance of Rough Diamonds, and with bandmembers becoming increasingly disenchanted with stadium concerts and the size of their success, they disbanded. The band reformed in 1986, without Rodgers who remained with The Firm, leaving the other three members to find a new vocalist, Brian Howe. The resulting album, 1986's Fame and Fortune, had a keyboard-based sound but failed to perform as well as earlier Bad Company albums. Abandoning the keyboards they returned to rock for 1988's Dangerous Age, which fared rather better. 1990's Holy Water continued the run of success, achieving platinum sales. Howe's last studio album with the band was 1992's Here Comes Trouble before he left amidst enduring acrimony.
The band recruited Robert Hart to take over vocals, and the albums he recorded, Company of Strangers (1995) and Stories Told & Untold (1996), were not commercially successful, and Hart left the band. In 1998 Rodgers returned to the Bad Company fold, recording four new songs for the compilation album The Original Bad Company Anthology (1999), though no further studio albums appeared. The original members continue to tour.

Camel - The Collection (1992)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Genre: Symphonic Prog

Since Camel had lots of legal problems, Latimer divided his time between lawyer's offices and record companies as he sought an outlet for Camel's new material titled ''Dust And Dreams''. As Latimer scrutinized old contracts it came to light that Camel were owed royalties that had never been paid by Camel's management/production company, Gama Records.
Highly charged by this discovery, Latimer gathered support from Bardens, Ward and Ferguson to file a suit against Gama. This lawsuit, by comparison, would be brief and glorious. On 25th March 1985, they finally reaped the benefits of their past work together. Reunited in the same attorney's office that had accepted Ward's resignation from Camel just two years earlier, happier times now prevailed. The former bandmates settled their lawsuit with Gama and received their first of many royalty payment to come. Formalities completed, they celebrated at a local pub until closing time. Though they no longer had interest in playing together, all parted as friends (info available on Camel's official website). With all these legal problems, Camel had little time to release new material, so it was appropriate to produce a compilation effort (Money, it's a hit ...). In terms of music, the track selection is quite appealing. It gives a pretty good overview of their earliest work : three tracks out of "Moonmadness", two from "Mirage", and six from their "Snow Goose" here represented by the live version available in the meantime on the remastered live album "A Live Record". Then bits and bites from their later work. At the time of release, it was meant to satisfy the new fans of the band and probably introduce them to Camel's older repertoire (more interesting IMO).

The original release was a double album. The CD version skipped some tracks although there is still some space available...

Three stars for this good compilation album.

Leonard Cohen - Dear Heather (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Leonard Cohen's Dear Heather is full of poetry, weighty themes, and lighthearted humor. Unlike some of his more slickly produced later work, Dear Heather has a light and spacious touch. Cohen still contrasts his gruff vocals with sweet-voiced women -- sometimes massed in choruses, often just either of his longtime collaborators Anjani Thomas and Sharon Robinson -- and the songs are more likely to rely on keyboards than the acoustic guitars of his classic recordings from the '60s. First, the poetry: Cohen turns Lord Byron's poem "So We'll Go No More A-Roving" into a sexy slow jam and recites Frank Scott's "Villanelle for Our Time," gradually adding an improvisatory piano backing; then, by changing his inflections and adding Thomas's heavenly backing vocals, he turns it into a song. Cohen still takes his role as elder sage seriously: "On That Day" is his 9/11 opus, but it's a brief one at just over two minutes (most of these songs are brief), and "To a Teacher" and "The Faith" rely on biblical allusions and provocative rhetorical questions. But Cohen's sense of humor is more prominent than ever on Dear Heather. In "Because Of," he notes, "Because of a few songs wherein I spoke of their mysteries / women have been exceptionally kind to my old age," and delightful comic touches are imparted by his Jew's harp in "Nightingale" and his carefully enunciated diction in the title track. Dear Heather shows that this elder statesman still has some new tricks up his elegantly disheveled sleeves... S. Klinge

Simple Minds - Sons And Fascination (1981) (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thx wajorama for this share...

For their fourth album in three years, Simple Minds signed on with Virgin and enlisted Gong's Steve Hillage as producer. The sessions continued the group's impressive run of high-quality output, but there are instances where ambition gets the best of them. Though their work with Hillage hardly spawned anything on a plane with the two albums that preceded it and the one that followed it, it's still a substantial piece of the Simple Minds puzzle. Bridging the art disco of Empires and Dance with the pop masterpiece New Gold Dream, the album falters when the band seems to be reaching a bit too farmore… for their own good. The other stumbling block is Hillage's production: Where the basslines of Empires and Dance snapped and ted and where the drums hit with brisk smacks and thick thumps, the echo-gauze of the production work diminishes the impact of the band's greatest asset and makes everything sound bigger and busier than necessary. (The massive qualities of New Gold Dream sound much more natural and less forced in comparison.) The record isn't without moments of brilliance, like the exquisitely detailed "70 Cities As Love Brings the Fall" (a great balance between grand melodies and bizarre noise), the insistently snaking "In Trance As Mission," and "Sweat in Bullet," which has sparkling keyboard parts and crafty guitar interplay. Aside from these moments, the mind tends to wander and wonder if the band was trying to do too much. Upon its release, Sons and Fascination was issued for a limited time with a bonus LP, the scattered Sister Feelings Call, which includes a great pre-Sons and Fascination A-side ("The American"). When Virgin issued Sons and Fascination on CD in 1985, the majority of Sister Feelings Call was tacked to the end...Dhar Jellinc

Simple Minds - Glittering Prize (1992)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thx wajorama for this share...

This compilation album is fascinating in that it tracks the dramatic artistic decline (and parallel commercial rise) of one the most successful groups of the post-punk era. "Love Song", "Promised You A Miracle" and "Someone, Somewhere In Summertime" see Jim Kerr and co. teetering like a cat poised on a fence, their sound a skittering, graceful interplay of glittering keyboards and adrenaline guitars, with Kerr's lyrics epic yet ambivalent on top. Then around the mid-1980s, Simple Minds fell from the fence into lumbering stadium rock rifferama. "Alive And Kicking" and "Sanctify Yourself" were bigmore… scarf-waving anthems but lacked the tantalising panache of their earlier work. As Jim Kerr sank further into megastardom, the music suffered further as he indulged in piously cumbersome ballads like "Belfast Child" and "Mandela Day". But while critics sighed, the Minds' audience swelled regardless--their "New Gold Dream" had come true. ..Rainer Zuphall

Simple Minds - Sparkle in the Rain (1984) (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is one album that perhaps isn't as bad as some of the original fans remember. This was the sound of Simple Minds hitting out for the stadiums.Coming in the same year as U2's big break through (with 'War') it was decided to use their producer, Steve Lillywhite, for the new S.M. album. This will not go down as one of his better production jobs. The sound is blurred and the attack blunted. Forbes' bass is all but lost in the mix for much of the time. Likewise Kirsty MacCol's vocals on Speed Your Love to Me and Street Hassle are wasted. Speaking of the latter track, the Lou Reed song is givenmore… a pretty character less reading.But there is still Waterfront, an genuinely gripping stadium song, Up on the Catwalk, a capable opening number and the closing Shake of the Ghosts, which takes up where Theme From Great Cities left off.The track that sounds most like War era U2, The Kick Up Inside of Me, is the track with the best sound, having a bit of kick and passion.This isn't a bad album. It has a decent bunch of songs presented with a reasonable amount of variety. It is, however, let down by the producer, who has blunted the attack and blurred the sound so that individual instruments were frequently lost in the murk.It is well worth your pennies, but don't expect genius...Bob Hope

Simple Minds - Live in the City of Light (1987)(2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Simple Minds - Live in the City of Light was recorded at Le Zenith in Paris in August '86 and originally released in the spring of '87. It is a definitive live album of its era and for Simple Minds as a band. The Album is a superb snapshot of the 'minds' at their stadium filling best in the 80's, and 17 years on, the production and recording quality still sounds on the whole pretty good. There are no really weak tracks here but the inclusion of Oh Jungleland and a dubious medley of Love Song (a great live track in it's own right)Sun CityDance to the music now sounds a little out of place alongsidemore… other traditional 'minds' live classics which have lasted in their live set to the present day such as Waterfront, Alive and Kicking, Don't you forget about me and the sublime New Gold Dream, but as this was originally recorded 18 years ago we can forgive these inclusions, as creative ideas and outlook for the band will have changed a great deal in that time.Despite this Album being originally released 17 years ago, Live in the City of Light still stands up as a good live recording with versions of Ghost dancing, Big Sleep, Someone Somewhere in Summertime and New Gold Dream being my standout tracks. For me the weakest area of this album is Jim Kerr's vocals which are at times putting it kindly variable, particularly when the going gets tough and he has to push his voice. The vocals ending up more of a gruff shout at times, and it is for this reason why the album doesn't get the full 5 stars from me. Also the keyboards and percussion can at times come across as over indulgent and occasionally too dominant in the mix, perhaps an indication of the era and production techniques used at the time the album was recorded, and also the bands approach to their music at the time.In many ways it is a shame this remains their only official live album release to date as having witnessed their live performance recently on the Floating World tour, I am happy to report that they sound even better now than they do on this album. Live in the City of Light mainly includes tracks that attained chart success up to and including the excellent Once upon a time album, so no tracks from Street Fighting years, the superb Real Life or Good News from the Next World all of which were released subsequent to this Album. Truthfully Live in the City of Light is really one for the die hard fans, but if you are one and haven't yet heard or purchased this album, do so and Enjoy...Rainer Zuphall

The Style Council - Our Favourite Shop (1985) (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thx wajorama for this share...

Our Favourite Shop is the second Style Council album. The majority of the album's material was released (with different sequencing and packaged in an entirely different cover design) in the USA as Internationalists by Geffen Records.

Lyrical targets include racism, excessive consumerism, the effects of self-serving governments, the suicide of one of Weller's friends and what the band saw as an exasperating lack of opposition to the status quo. All of this pessimism is countered with an overarching sense of hope and delight that alternatives do actually exist -- if only they can be seen. The album contained the Top 10 singles "Shout To The Top", which peaked at #7 in the UK, and "Walls Come Tumbling Down!", which reached #6 in the UK.

The contained musical styles are also far-ranging. Soul, rap, jazz and rock stylings all occur on the album.

The Style Council - The Cost Of Loving (1987)(2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thx wajorama for this share...

This album,released in 1987, saw the group concentrating on the R&B styles that had been growing in America during the eighties. Its urban contemporary feel was a jolt to listeners who had grown accustomed to the Continental mix of soul, jazz, and European folk styles that the Council had displayed on their previous two albums. United States label Geffen Records heard the tracks and promptly dropped The Style Council from their roster. Polygram records would eventually issue the album Stateside without its much-maligned International Orange jacket design. Socially Conscious Soul Music pioneer Curtis Mayfield was asked to mix some of the material on the album, which displays hints of being influenced by House Music and the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis sound. The initial British pressings of the album were conceived and issued as two 12" EPs in a gatefold sleeve (designed by Simon Halfon with ideas from Weller). Tracks from the album were included in a 37 minute film, Jerusalem, about the band.

Santana - The Essential Santana 2CD (2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As great a guitarist as Carlos Santana is, his choices of songs and sidemen during the past twenty years have been questionable, at best. The evidence is in this double-disc anthology of his group's Columbia years. In the late Sixties and early Seventies, Santana cranked out one gem after another, from the scorching "Soul Sacrifice" to Tito Puente's sexy "Oye Como Va." But when the core of the Santana band began to fall apart, the guitarist turned to jazz fusion and pedestrian pop metal. Disc Two is plagued by corporate-rock drivel such as "Open Invitation" and "Nowhere to Run." For the real essential stuff, stick with Santana's first three albums -- classics all.

Man - Welsh Connection (1976)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This was to be Man's last studio album for two decades, and with its we ak sales (it failed to chart) and underpowered material it's easy to s ee why the band called it quits for the time being. There's some irony , then, in the closing track being "Born with a Future." It's a good f inal bow, though, as it's well harmonized and ultimately one of the be st cuts on the album. Perhaps this releases's most nagging overall pro blem is the mix-Phil Ryan's keyboards are high up, while Deke Leonard' s bracing guitar parts are less evident than usual. Although this isn' t always a liability-the lengthy title track lazily wends its way thro ugh some pleasant moog solos and electric piano flourishes-the grittin ess of the band's sound is largely squandered here...Robert Hoffnung

Traffic - Traffic (1968) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of the finest albums the original quartet produced. Their second, self titled album captures the musical diversity that Traffic was capable of creating. When the trio fo Winwood-Capaldi-Woods began recording their second album Dave Mason decided to join them in the studio. The resulting tracks were so strong that the members decided to allow Mason to rejoin. Mason provides some of the second album's highlights with his single Feelin' Alright a magical 3 minute portrait of the band's best qualities. That isn't to slight Winwood. He also (in collaboration with Capaldi and Wood)wrote some of his finest material for their second album. The band sounds more cohesive (if that's possible) than on either Mr. Fantasy (the first UK album) or Heaven Is In Your Mind (the reconfigured Mr. Fantasy and their first US album).
The inclusion of bonus tracks is always welcome but the UK version of this album was a bit odd. While it's understandable that Island would want to include as much single and b side material as possible the inclusion of the band's first single on their second album was a bit jarring to say the least. Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush doesn't fit in with the band's second album. Supervising producer Bill Levenson has reconfigured the UK release to more accurately reflect the band's sound at this time. The sound quality is outstanding. Levenson's reissue doesn't sound quite as overprocessed as the UK release. The liner notes are informative without overdoing it. Although it isn't mentioned if this is a 24 bit remaster on the cover art the sound quality rivals that of the Uk release but still retains the organic sound of the original vinyl and source tapes. Traffic isn't the band's best album (John Barleycorn Must Die still stands as the band's definitive statement) but it is the best album recorded by the original quartet. Hopefully Island will remaster and reissue the rest of their catalog (particularly the fine late period albums Low Spark of High Heeled Boys and When The Eagle Flies. Here's hoping that Welcome To The Canteen is also remixed to improve the sound quality of the original live tapes)shortly. This great UK band is finally getting their due in the digital age...Dhar Jellinc

Status Quo - Back To Back (1983)(Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If albums were judged on their hit single yield, "Back To Back" would be one of Quo's best. There were four in all and the first two, ahead of the album's release, gave no hint of what was to follow. Alan Lancaster's "Ol' Rag Blues" and the cover of an Elvis hit, "A Mess Of The Blues", were standard Quo without being remarkable. As a whole however "Back To Back" panders more to the plastic pop of the era and suffers from a lightweight production. It's most remembered for the dreaded twee country pop song, "Marguerita Time", a huge hit and three minutes that has nothingmore… in common with what made Quo popular. The final hit, "Going Down Town Tonight" is a fast, keyboard-dominated number that was almost as perplexing to long-time fans.There are some good moments, such as "Stay The Night", but it's difficult to redeem an album that's had the guts ripped from the sound. "Win Or Lose" was a particular disappointment. Though a Francis Rossi song, it had been recorded a few years earlier by the endearingly crude r&b band, Lew Lewis Reformer. Their rollicking version made me wonder why Quo hadn't already recorded it, but the version here is almost casually weak.The original album is, at just over half an hour, their shortest and the bonus material almost doubles the running time of this reissue. Most of these tracks are merely alternative versions however, including Lancaster's lead vocal of "Ol' Rag Blues". He apparently wanted to sing his own song but as the public weren't used to hearing him tackle singles, Francis Rossi's vocal was preferred. There are just three different songs: "I Wonder Why" is as bad as anything on the album; "Cadillac Ranch" is rousing, though not as passionate as Bruce Springsteen's original; and there are two versions of Quo's pointless 1984 hit cover of Dion's "The Wanderer".This would be Lancaster's last album. The change in direction seems to have contributed to his decision to drift away, though moving to Australia without persuading the others to follow may have been more significant. "Back To Back" therefore marks the end of one era and the beginning of another. Though most subsequent albums are better than this, Quo's more pop-oriented era hasn't gone down as well with long-term fans...Robert Hoffnung

Birth Control - Hoodoo Man (1973) (Remaster Edit 2005)

Image Hosted by ParkYourPic

German band Birth Control seems to have had it's ups and downs, and this, their third album, is probably one of their ups. Some people surely will disagree though. This is hard prog with a jazzy touch, and their sense of humor shines through at times. A lot of the music reminds me a little of pre-heavy metal Deep Purple. This has their big song "Gamma Ray" which is considered a classic in Germany. Five bonus tracks, including the single version of said song in two parts. Not really what you would call Krautrock, but there's some good experimental jazzy prog here...Bob Hope

Man - Back Into The Future (1973)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rock music is littered with bands that wrecked on the studio/live double album concept; Man is rare in that their attempt, despite the departure of Clive John, brought them their first real success. The band's tight performance and increasingly ambitious musical experimentation made Back Into the Future the first Man album to chart in the U.K.; when it hit #23, it was to be the band's high-water mark. Despite the band's live reputation, the studio album probably holds greater interest for listeners today. The title track is a lyrical evocation of the album's charming cover art -- a staged before-and-after shot of a railway station in its Edwardian prime, and then in modern decrepitude. The song's wistful glance at the past blurs with dabs of modern psychedelia, and it conveys the post-Sergeant Pepper fascination of British rockers with the costumed grandeur of Empire past. But it is "Ain't Their Fight," with its echoing vocals and windmilling guitar riffs, that stands out as one of the band's most satisfying tracks. Most of the rest of the album is comprised of lengthy instrumentals, but the opening "Never Say Nups to Nepalese" is worth noting for its gloriously crashing crescendo, cheerfully lifted from Pink Floyd's "Echoes." And while the live set uses a male choir to haunting effect in the slow psychedelic jam of "C'mon," it's more typified by the indulgent 21-minute boogie marathon of "Jam Jelly Up Tight." Much like the third record of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, it must have seemed a great idea when stoned, but it's interminable today. Nonetheless, the album stands up as a fine artifact of the band's heyday...Bob Hope

Stoneground - Stoneground (1971)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This great hippie band featured the voice, guitar, and songwriting skills of former Beau Brummel Sal Valentino. But he was only one voice. This band of Bay Area hipsters had four female singers, and no less that six different lead vocalists on the ten tracks on this album. The photo on the back cover shows about a dozen people on stage! Every song is great, whether it is gospel rock, funk, R & B, power ballad, whatever. My favorite track is a Sal Valentino tune, "Colonel Chicken Fry". No wait, it's the cover of Rev. Gary Davis' "Great Change Since I've been Born". Maybe "Looking For You"! Well like I said they're all great. If you like 70's West Coast hippie music, this is a forgotten gem...Robert Hoffnung

Jethro Tull - Songs From The Wood (1977) (2003 RemasteEdit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tull was a controversial band back in the 70's. Were they a rock band at all? Were they even a prog. rock band like Yes and Floyd? Or were they something totally unclassifiable? With an enigmatic leader, Ian Anderson, they have some of the biggest hits ever, Aqualung and Locomotive Breath, both with plenty of radio play, and followed up that success with two albums that had only one song each (Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, both which strangely became #1 albums- how is that possible?). Then in 1977, after a couple of other very successful albums, they popped out Songs From the Woodmore…. This album rocks in a real woodsy sort of way. The title track sounds great on the remastered version, especially the vocals. Hunting Girl is a real standout too. This album stands as a musical work that will never go out of style. It is timeless and a keeper in your collection...Robert Hoffnung

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - The Roaring Silence (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The reason that The Roaring Silence became Manfred Mann's Earth Band's best-selling album may have been because of both Bruce Springsteen-penned singles, but its instrumental makeup, by way of Mann's keyboard manipulation coupled with Chris Thompson's chiseled singing, had just as much of an affect. "Blinded By the Light" and "Spirit in the Night" gave the band hits at both ends of the Top 40 spectrum, with "Blinded" going to number one while the mysteriously-sounding "Spirit in the Night" edged in at number 40 six months later. Outside of the singles, The Roaring Silence is made up of clean-cut, well-established synthesizer and guitar work, with touches of techno psychedelia that are sometimes lengthy but never messy. Tracks such as "Questions," "This Side of Paradise," and even "Starbird" uncover the band's creativity and instrumental wit. Mann is careful not to stray too far with his keys, and his compliance with Thompson's vocals are noticeable in almost every track. Aside from the music, The Roaring Silence basks in veiled poetry, cryptic but at the same time intriguing, verging on the complexities of progressive rock but far from its pretentiousness. Eventually achieving gold status, The Roaring Silence both commercially and artistically became the group's finest effort...Bob Hope

Badfinger - No Dice (1970) (Remaster Edit 2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The album opens with the catchy rocker 'I Can't Take It' featuring a passionate Ham vocal and some soaring guitar. Then 'I Don't Mind' (Evans-Molland) has beautiful harmonies reminiscent of 'Because' from Abbey Road'. 'Love Me Do' is a gripping rocker with afore mentioned mad drumming. 'Midnight Caller' is up there with similar gems from McCartney's pen, 'No Matter What' was a great rocker and a smash single and deservedly so. And then if Side One (vinyl) had not contained enough class material, the Side finished with 'Without You' which later would be a smash hit for Nilsson....and err...Mariah Carey. The original version here of this Ham-Evans song is earthy (as Tom put it) but quite gripping all the same. And less syrupy.
Side 2 opens with a great country number 'Blodwyn' which the Beatles would probably have asked Ringo to sing. Here Pete sings this thoroughly infectious song with aplomb. 'Better Days' is a class rocker from Joey, with him and Pete showcasing their considerable guitar talents to great effect. 'It Had To Be' shows Mike Gibbins could write a decent ballad, although he asks Pete Ham to sing it for him. Probabaly wisely. 'Watford John' is the one slightly weak moment here. A rocker but going through the motions somewhat. But then this album closes with two superb numbers: 'Believe Me' (Evans) which sounds rather like 'Oh Darling' (from 'Abbey Road again). Superb vocal from Tom. And then 'We Are For The Dark' which is one of Pete Ham's all time greats, and should be much more widely recognised in my opinion. The bonus tracks are interesting and great to have... Robert Hoffnung

Moody Blues - In Search Of The Lost Chord (1968) (Remaster Edit 1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Released during a period of rock ‘n roll psychodelia, this is arguable the Moody Blues most productive and progressive album of the times. Nearly half the songs are still part of their concert listing. “Departure” is another trademark introduction that has been the motif of so many of their albums – a unique and mind-blowing beginning. Highlights include Lodge’s “Ride My See-Saw”, a concert closing song, while “Dr. Livingstone” and “Legend Of A Mind” are still classics that can be heard on the radio almost as much as “Nightsmore… In White Satin”. “House Of Four Doors (Part 1 and 2)” provide continuity to the collection and scores of special effects. An earmark of the period is produced with “The Word” followed by “Om”, the only songs that seem dated. Two of the Moody Blues best and most romantic songs are Hayward’s “The Actor”, a truly unique and inventive ballad and “Voices In The Sky”. They are both performed and sung beautifully in concert. Other than “Days Of Future Passed”, this is one of their most popular albums from that period. Plus, just take a look at that cover!

IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CHORD (1968) was the second album by The Moody Blues with Hayward and Lodge, and is still thought to be their best by many. I won't make that claim here; I am such a fan of this beguiling group that I find it exceedingly difficult to single out just one "best" from such a string of great albums. I will admit this has always been one of my favorites. It is a masterpiece that followed a masterpiece (DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED--one of the few rock albums to extensively and successfully employ an orchestra without being the least bit haughty). IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CHORD is filled with the group's euphoric music, which both explores the cosmos and comforts us with their emblematic, tuneful bliss. There is a remarkable, youthful enthusiasm in both the music and the lyrics, and the album is loaded with songs of unique, psychedelic charm. "Ride My See-Saw" has a mesmerizing groove, but it's intelligently energetic. "Voices In The Sky," "Visions Of Paradise" and "The Actor" are pure ecstasy, with such heavenly mixes of instrumental textures and heartfelt vocals. I don't find "Dr. Livingstone, I Presume" inferior in any way; in fact it's delightful (pay no attention to the detractors if you prefer inventiveness over trendiness). "Legend Of A Mind" is as haunting as you could ask for, and the instrumental break from 2:42 to 4:59 still takes me to OMville. "House Of Four Doors" is mysteriously enchanting, beautiful...captivating. This and "Part 2" frame "Legend Of A Mind" perfectly. And, how can any psychedelia-loving soul not delight in "The Best Way To Travel"? The meditative "OM" completes this musical treasure piece in splendid fashion. The 60s was more than protests and flower power (the media has its way of warping and commercializing everything, including history!). It was a very revolutionary time for music. The music on this glorious album was highly original back then--still is! Nothing sounded like this before the late 60s. I have a tendency to harp on this: the changes--truly creative changes--that took place in the short span of eight years from 1965 to 1973 were extraordinary. That was an amazing time period that produced some amazing works of art. This album is one of them, and I cannot recommend it enough to those who love the stuff...C. Murray

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Solar Fire (1973) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After riding the worldwide pop music charts for over a decade, Manfred Mann created an even larger chapter in rock music history with his Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Created at the height of album rock radio, Manfred Mann's Earth Band landed their first three albums on the charts as they increased their loyal following throughout concert halls in the United States. 1974 proved to be a pivotal year for the band as they released their biggest selling album at that time with Solar Fire. Originally released in the States with the international hit single "Joybringer" (based around Holst's Planets Suite), this album has stood the test of time and is regarded as one of the bands strongest efforts ever.
Aside from the thematic approach of rocking tracks like the title song "Solar Fire" and "Darkness, From The Beginning", this album really gained a whole new audience with the epic Bob Dylan remake of "Father Of Day, Father Of Night." This ten-minute anthem would go on to be one of Mann's most respected and most articulate works of this era. The fans dug it and have gone on to make this album one of their most enduring of the Manfred Mann's Earth Band diverse catalog...Bob Hope

Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Ash (1970) (1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This was the first wishbone ash album i bought and i was hooked from the start! This is simply fantastic british heavy rock with guitarists Andy Powell and Ted turner on top form. Bassist martin turner is outstanding(i am personally a bass finatic)and drummer steve upton shines throughout. Every track falls nothing short of outstanding from the bluesy "blind eye" to the epic heights of "pheonix".Whether you're new to this band or not, this is truly a classic album... Bob Hope

Bangles - The Essential

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For all intents and purposes, The Essential Bangles acts a replacement for 1990's Greatest Hits, as it features remastered sound and 90 percent of the same material. Like Greatest Hits, the disc contains 14 songs; the difference selection-wise is that "Live" (an All Over the Place album track) and "What I Meant to Say" (the B-side to "Eternal Flame") are included instead of "Where Were You When I Needed You" and "Everything I Wanted." This slight difference is of no substantial consequence. The disc strikes a good balance between the group's most popular moments and their brightest, with theirmore… range — from "Going Down to Liverpool" to "Hazy Shade of Winter" to "Walk Like an Egyptian" (the unfortunate novelty hit) — put on display. You are strongly encouraged to verbally throttle anyone who refers to "Manic Monday" as anything less than pure bliss.

Diana Krall - The Girl In The Other Room (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In The Girl in the Other Room, singer and pianist Diana Krall changes direction by interpreting modern standards by Tom Waits, Mose Allison and Joni Mitchell, as well as compositions by her and her new husband, Elvis Costello. Krall's jazz piano credentials come through loud and clear on her Count Basie-styled version of Bonnie Raitt's "Love Me Like a Man", but it's the collaborations with her spouse that reveal untapped emotional nuances in her velvet voice; many are reminiscent of Bill Evans's moody, impressionistic pieces. The title track, as well as "Narrow Daylight", "Abandoned Masquerademore…", and "I'm Coming Through" deals with love and loss. "Departure Bay", a picturesque ode to her hometown of Nanaimo, BC, proves that this is the start of something big, and that two heads--and hearts--are better than one.

Rory Gallagher - Rory Gallagher 1971 (Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This album entered the UK album charts at number 32, an excellent beginning for a solo career. It contains 10 tracks, all of which are Rory compositions and clearly show the continued blues rock direction that he began with Taste. A trademark of Rory's music is his inclusion into the fusion, jazz and folk instruments like alto sax and mandolin. "I'm Not Surprised" stands out on this album with it's mellow "unpled" feel and loosely based Blues structure.
Gallagher's first bands were showbands which played the popular hits of the day. In 1965 he turned The Impact into an R'n'B group which played gigs in Ireland and Spain. He formed Taste in 1966, but the line-up which became legendary was formed in 1967, featuring his guitar and vocals, the jazz-tinged drumming of John Wilson and intricate bass playing of Richard McCracken. Recordings of the earlier version of Taste are still available and it's interesting to compare Gallagher's rudimentary guitar playing to the virtuosity that became evident fairly soon after in the later Taste. This was the group who released two studio albums, Taste and On the Boards, and made two live recordings, Live at Montreux and Live at the Isle of Wight. The latter appeared a long time after the band broke up at that same Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. A legend of blues music, Gallagher played with many of the genre's biggest stars, including collaboration with Muddy Waters and Jerry Lee Lewis on their respective London Sessions in the mid 70s and Gallagher received invitations to jam with The Rolling Stones following the loss of their lead guitarist Mick Taylor, and Canned Heat after the departure of The Eagle.
After the demise of Taste, Gallagher toured under his own name, hiring bass player Gerry McAvoy to play on his first eponymous 'solo' album (a relationship that would last twenty years on the road) and Wilgar Campbell on drums.
The 1970s were Gallagher's most prolific period. He produced ten albums in that decade, including two live albums, Live in Europe and Irish Tour '74 which for many captured best his bands' raw and naturally dynamic qualities.[citation needed]. 1972 saw the debut of the album "Deuce" which is essential 3 piece R&B.
The classic line-up is widely considered to be with Rod De'Ath on drums and Lou Martin on keyboards between 1973 and 1978. Other release highlights from that period include Against the Grain and the jazz tinged Calling Card album, assisted in production by Roger Glover (bassist with Deep Purple) and the hard blues-rocking Photo Finish and Top Priority albums with Ted McKenna on drums.
Gallagher was always associated with his well-worn sunburst 1961 Stratocaster, which his brother Donal has officially retired. It was reputedly the first in Ireland, ordered by a showband member who changed his mind about the colour. Gallagher bought it for just shy of £100 at Crowley's Music Store on Cork's McCurtain Street. The guitar was extensively modified by Gallagher. The tuning pegs, for a start, are odd (5 Sperzels and one Gotoh) and all of these have been found to be replacements. Secondly, it is thought that the nut has been replaced and interchanged a number of times. Thirdly, the scratchplate was changed during Gallagher's time with Taste. Another change was the pickups of which none are original. The final modification was that of the wiring. Gallagher disconnected the bottom tone pot and rewired so he had just a master tone control along with the master volume control. He also installed a 5-way selector switch in place of the vintage 3-way one. The most notable effect that years of touring have had is the almost complete removal of the guitar's sunburst finish, partly through being left out in the rain in a ditch for days after being stolen. Other quirks include a 'hump' in the scratch plate which moves the neck pickup closer to the neck on the bass side and a replacement of all of the pickups, though this replacement was due to damage rather than a perception of a tonal inadequacy. Reproductions of the guitar have recently been sold by Fender, though with smaller frets and lower action than the original.
Gallagher used various makes and models of amplifiers during his career. In general, however, he preferred smaller 'combo' amplifiers to the larger, more powerful 'stacks' that are popular with rock and hard rock guitarists. To make up for the relative lack of power on stage, he would often link several different combo amps together.
When Gallagher was with Taste, he used a single Vox AC30 with a Dallas Rangemaster treble booster pled into the 'normal' input. Examples of this sound can be heard on the Taste albums, as well as the album Live in Europe. Brian May, of the band Queen, has admitted in interviews that as a young man, he was inspired to use a similar amplifier and treble booster setup after meeting Gallagher and asking him how he got his sound. Gallagher has also been known to have used Ibanez Tube Screamers and various Boss effects.
In the early to mid 1970s, Gallagher began to use Fender amplifiers, most notably a Bassman and a Twin, both of a 50s vintage. An example of this sound can be heard on the Irish Tour '74 album. He also had a Fender Concert amplifier.
In the mid to late 1970s, when Gallagher was moving towards a hard rock sound, he experimented with Ampeg VT40 and VT22 amps. He also began using Marshall combos. During this period and beyond, Gallagher used different combinations of amps on stage to achieve more power and to blend the tonal characteristics of different amps.
Gallagher's health and his ability to perform were increasingly compromised by excessive use of alcohol combined with drugs that had been prescribed to alleviate his anxiety of flying. From the late 1980s, he suffered increasingly poor health yet he continued touring. By the time of his final performance on 10 January 1995 in the Netherlands, he was visibly unwell. A liver transplant became necessary and was nearly successful, but just before being discharged from the hospital, a MRSA developed. He quickly worsened and died in London on 14 June 1995. Gallagher never married and had no children.
"Rory's death really upset me. I heard about it just before we went on stage, and it put a damper on the evening. I can't say I knew him that well, but I remember meeting him in our offices once, and we spent an hour talking. He was such a nice guy and a great player." [Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin]

UFO - Walk On Water (1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As I write this is on sale for less than a fiver - if someone can come up with a better way to spend this, I'll eat my socks!
UFO have managed to avoid living on past glories or trying to keep up with trends - what they have done in recent times (starting with this album) is to continue to play the absolute best of melodic rock without feeling out of touch with their roots or their ever advancing age (they've been around for more than 30 years) - like some of us of advancing years, they seem to be able to recognise that you can be contemporary without having to be trendy.
There are some referencesmore… to the past - the remakes of Lights Out and Doctor,Doctor are there I think to link new listeners to their past, but if you are a first time listener, ignore these and instead enjoy what is probably one of the best comeback albums of all time - when you put this album up against modern rock albums, you can see how hard it is for new acts to beat the past masters - any modern rock album has to reference UFO in one way or another, as these guys are on top of their game here, combining meaningful lyrics (listen to Pushed to the Limit if you want to know what being middle aged feels like) with guitar work of the highest level thanks to Mr Moody himself, Michael Schenker.
If you are under 30 and into modern rock oriented music, then risk a fiver and enjoy a dip into the past - if you are over 30 and remember bands like Thin Lizzy but haven't listened to UFO before, then sacrifice a pint and buy this instead - you won't regret it...Rudi Rondo

Doro & Warlock - Rare Diamonds (1996) (2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rare Diamonds is a nice overview of the legendary Doro Pesch's career with the band Warlock as well as her solo material. Doro really is the first lady of metal, and is probably best known for the Warlock anthems All We Are and I Rule the Ruins (which is mysteriously absent from this collection). She's had great success with her solo career as well, so an anthology like Rare Diamonds is a great way to experience Doro's aggressive yet beautiful music. Back in the day, this type of music would be called power metal. Now it would probably fall into the true metal category. Either way, every metal fan should have some Doro in their collection, and Rare Diamonds is the perfect album to start with...J. Gaines

Les Humphries Singers - The Best Of

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Les Humphries Singers was a 1970s musical group formed in Hamburg, Germany by the English born Les Humphries (born 10 August 1940 - died 26 December 2007), who had been inspired to do his own version of the Edwin Hawkins Singers. The group consisted of a large number of singers of diverse ethnic origin, some of whom such as John Lawton also performed with other groups. Another member was Jürgen Drews; who later started a long-running solo career, starting with his 1976 hit in Germany, "Ein Bett im Kornfeld", a cover version of "Let Your Love Flow" by the Bellamy Brothers.

Additional members included Liz Mitchell, later front woman with Boney M., and John Lawton, who also sang for the German progressive/hard rock band Lucifer's Friend and would go on to be the frontman for Uriah Heep. The Les Humphries Singers dissolved at the end of the 1970s, after Humphries had left due to tax liabilities to his English homeland.

Nektar - Recycled (1975) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is a brilliant remaster of Nektars 1975 album. Whether Nektar can be considered a progressive rock band is open to question and the band themselves don't particularly adhere to that tag as each album has it's own distinctive style and incorporated many diverse influences. On "Recycled" the tracks are short, but linked and the songwriting and playing is excellent throughout. The inclusion of synthesiser player Larry Fast was inspired and adds a distinctive, modern edge to the arrangements. The remastering by Paschal Byrne is excellent and sympathetic to the material. At last this album canmore… be heard as it should be. The extra tracks are the Geoff Emerick remix version of the whole album, which the band decided against at the time and give an interesting, but different slant on the songs. The whole project is overseen by Mark Powell who did such a wonderful job with the Caravan and Camel back catalogue recently and is also involved in the upcoming Gong remasters. The sleeve notes are, as always informative with lots of rare photos and really make this a must have for both Nektar fans and those who appreciate rock music from a golden age where bands were producing distinctive, challenging records.

Recycled turned out to be Roye Albrighton's final 70s album with Nektar--and what a good one it is, too. Apparently, a concept album about the biological and ecological consequences of mass consumerism, Recycled features some excellent synthesizer work by Larry Fast and additional touches such as an appearance by the English Chorale. The first half of the CD (especially "Automation Horrorscope" and "Cybernetic Consumption") is simply amazing, with both Fast and Albrighton taking center stage: swirling synthesizers and lots of crashing guitar create a virtual blitzkrieg of sound that only softens a bit with "Sao Paulo Sunrise," a beautiful, slinky piece that recalls the group's similar forays into funk on Remember the Future. And like that album, Recycled is imminently futuristic and psychedelic, sort of like a more melodic Hawkwind. Fans of Pink Floyd should also really dig this record. It's a record I rarely ever get tired of listening to...F. Kromee

Trapeze - Hot Wire (1974)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In 1974 the band released "The Final Swing" a best of compilation that had two previously unreleased tracks called "Good Love" and the hit song, "Dat’s it" that was a fan favorite at the live shows for many years prior to its release. Guitarist Rob Kendrick and bassist Pete Wright signed on for Trapeze's 1974 album "Hot Wire" that see the band go to a more hard rock sound just like the next release in 1976 that saw a second self-titled album also named Trapeze. The original trio of Galley, Hughes, and Holland reunited for a short time in late 1976, It was to be a full-fledged reunion with an album of new songs but Hughes again left the band before the album could be produce. Glenn Hughes solo album called Play me Out released in 1977 would have two new so-called Trapeze's songs "LA Cut-Off" and "Space High" that Galley, and Holland played with Hughes on the short 1976 Trapeze's reunion tour, that were written by Hughes for Trapeze new album that never came to be...Robert Hoffnung

Trapeze - Medusa (1970) (Remaster Edit 1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Not only is Medusa the finest offering from '70s outfit Trapeze, it is one of the decade's most underappreciated hard rock recordings. With a lineup that consisted of future Deep Purple, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath members, there seems to be proof that at least a few fellow musicians appreciated this 1971 offering. Fans of his later work might be surprised by Glenn Hughes' soulful vocal delivery, especially on the mid-tempo blues-rockers like "Black Cloud" and "Your Love Is Alright." Guitarist Mel Galley also deserves mention for his sparse approach to classic rock riffing that is catchy and affective. Even the ballads are focused, memorable, and unique. There are some melodic moments on the closing title track that sound almost as if a '90s alt-rock crooner composed them. Considering that Medusa predates many similar, and more successful, classic rock LPs from the likes of Bad Company, Nazareth, Foreigner, and others, it's a wonder that the record isn't mentioned more when influential albums of this era are discussed...Bob Hope

06. Makes You Wanna Cry 4:45
07. Medusa 5:42

Medusa is the breakout album for Glenn Hughes, who would go on to a long and successful career as one of the finest singers in rock. His vocal gymnastics are plentiful here on one of the best hard rock albums ever recorded. Every song is wonderfully crafted with excellent lyrics, interesting crunchy guitar with solos that never bore, and fine punchy rhythms by this power trio. Songs such as "Black Cloud", "Your Love Is Alright", "Touch My Life", and "Makes You Wanna Cry" are guaranteed to get your toes tapping, while "Seafull" is a strong downtempo song. The title track is a hard prog rocker, but the song that makes the album magnificent is "Jury", a monster progressive track with perhaps Hughes best vocal performance ever, and that is saying a lot. This album should be a part of any fan's collection of hard rock music...Pepe Panzer

Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak(1976) (1996)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jailbreak is arguably the only Lizzy album that's genuinely great all the way through (though some would argue for Bad Reputation or Live And Dangerous--but that's cheating), and it's surely their most exciting record; tough and touching, simultaneously barbarous and balletic. But then it'd be a great album just for "The Boys Are Back In Town", surely the finest and funniest song of its kind. It's Phil Lynott's infectious grin transmuted into sound, cheeky and totally irresistible--emerging unannounced from a jukebox, it can still make a whole room smile, and its brusque poignancy can't fail tomore… touch the middle of the heart. But the rest of Jailbreak lives up to it, especially the riotous title track ("Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak, somewhere in this town"--yeah well, the jail seems a likely place). If Lynott's poetic pretensions sometimes seep through, most of the album shows off his effortless command of power and economy; if heavy rock has a tendency to wrestle each song to the ground with brute force, Thin Lizzy were uniquely capable of the quick kill, the knockout punch, graceful as a boxer or bullfighter. Jailbreak is sexy testament to that...Pepe Panzer

Thin Lizzy - Johnny The Fox

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I bought JAILBREAK the other day and listening to it, I found it to be an entertaining enough mixture of hard driving rock (e.g. the title track, The Boys Are Back In Town, Warriors, The Cowboy Song), love ballads and funk rock. But it doesn't quite have the energy of its successor. JOHNNY THE FOX is perhaps the band's best studio album and the last one to fully feature the talents of Brian 'Robbo' Robertson who would later join Motorhead. The best tracks are Johnny, Rocky, Fool's Gold, Old Flame, Don't Believe A Word and Massacre, all sturdy heavy rock tunes which showcase the dynamic Gorham/more…Robertson partnership. Borderline and Sweet Marie are considerably softer, but the lads end on a high note with the pumping Boogie Woogie Dance. The previous reviewer knocked this one and it might be a bit muffled, but probably never has Phil Lynott brilliantly combined disco funk with all-out hard rock.

J. Geils Band - Ladies Invited (1973)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The J. Geils Band were coming off their biggest album yet (Bloodshot, which hit the Top Ten on the Billboard album charts) when Ladies Invited appeared in 1973. It didn't reach the same level of sale (peaking at number 51) and none of the songs became AOR staples. Despite this, the record is solidly entertaining Geils, full of jumping party tunes and heart-punching ballads all composed by the band itself. As usual the up-tempo songs are the best: "Did You No Wrong" is a dynamic rocker with some blistering J. Geils guitar work, "I Can't Go On" is a full-out funky jam, and "Lay Your Good Thing Down" is fine blue-eyed soul with slick hipster vocals from Peter Wolf. The ballads here show a level of emotion and commitment that you might not expect: "My Baby Don't Love Me" is a countrified, tear-in-my-beer weeper with aching harmony vocals from Seth Justman, "Chimes" is an atmospheric, paranoid tune with great dynamics and a vocal from Wolf that veers between intimate and over-the-top howling, and probably best of all is the laid-back, Stonesy "That's Why I'm Thinking of You." It is really a shock that none of these songs caught on with AOR programmers. The only one that got a few spins was "No Doubt About It," and it is the album's highlight, a low-down and nasty blues rocker featuring the one and only Magic Dick getting down on his lickin' stick. That and stuff like the driving "Take a Chance (On Romance)" and the corny but fun "Diddyboppin'" should have been blasting out of radios up and down the strip, in high-school parking lots, and on the beach — basically everywhere AOR sounds the best. Don't let anyone tell you that Ladies Invited is one of Geils' lesser works. It is just one of the band's overlooked works that deserve a second listen...Bob Hope

Edgar Broughton - Wasa Wasa 1969 (Deluxe Edition) (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For those that remember, many great bands in the 60's were purely live, and produced few or no records. Ah, the days before pop marketing and pop videos. Living in North London, we saw the band about a dozen times, in great venues of the time such as The Roundhouse, Cook's Ferry Inn and Wake Arms Hotel. Who didn't take all their clothes off to the chant of "Out Demons Out" then? No-one? .....So it was just me then? I have always thought that they would have been a great Punk Rock band during the Punk period. Edgar Broughton are heavy, gritty and loud; most of the time. The lyrics are quite good toomore…. I'm sure that a new generation would appreciate them in the right environment. Although the album is produced in the studio, it doesn't lack the presence of the live act. Close the curtains..."Out Demons Out!"

Rare Earth - Get Ready (1969)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In 1961 a group of high school buddies formed a band and called it "The Sunliners".After playing for about seven years the group decided to change the name of the band. Hence forth comes "Rare Earth".Motown Record Corporation approached Rare Earth in the latter part of 1968 to sign a recording contract. At first the group was reluctant to sign because of knowing of other white groups and artists before them that had not had any success because Motown was geared for promotion and distrubution in the black market only. It was when Motown decided they wanted to launch a new division of Motown to cater to white artists that Rare Earth started to seriously consider signing.Motown did not have a name for the new division and lable so jokeingly the band sested the name Rare Earth. Unbelieveably they agreed. That convinced the band that Motown was serious about making Rare Earth their first successful white band and they were going to sign more white acts to be on the "Rare Earth" Label. To clear up a long time false statement that Rare Earth was the only white act to ever be signed with Motown, Rare Earth was the one and only successful white band to be signed with Motown. Rare Earth was with Motown from 1968 to 1978.Motown wanted an album from Rare Earth immediately after signing.Rare Earth was playing bars for several years prior to signing with Motown. Motown music at that time was very strong on the radio so Rare Earth was playing a lot of Motown songs in clubs. Thus the bands roots developed from R&B music. Most people in the beginning thought Rare Earth to be black. Surprise, surprise. The band had been playing the song "Get Ready" in clubs for about a year or two prior to recording it. It started out a 3 minute song until one member took a solo and then everyone wanted a solo so over time the song became 21 minutes long. It became the closing song each night and people liked it so much they would stay just to hear it.The band decided that "Get Ready" would be Rare Earth's first recording, to be 21 minutes long and to be one whole side of the first album. Motown was leary about doing this but the band insisted because radio was starting to play album cuts which were longer than the normal 3 minute single. "Get Ready" first broke in Washington D.C. in the black market, spread across the country and eventually into the white market. It was a huge hit selling millions of records and remaining on the charts for almost 3 years.

Enya - Amarantine - Special Edition (2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Most of the time, I am against repackaging..but this was done so tastefully that I couldn't resist. The CD comes with the slipcover and on the inside, the CD looks like the regular Amarantine CD with the Christmas songs on a second disc (I believe one disc is red, the other blue) If you don't have the four new Christmas songs, this would be the best way to get them. It's the best way to get Amarantine if you don't have the entire album as well. Enya fans, even if you have the Amarantine album, this is still worth a purchase. As for the songs, look no further for Christmas music, this is it..her version of Adeste Fideles is one, if not the best and The Magic of the Night is an upbeat tune. Christmas Secrets is a heartfelt song, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas is definitely the best I've heard, she takes that song, makes it her own, and nails it. As for the Amarantine album, I believe she did a nice job with it, her experimentation with Loxian may not be for everyone, but if you really know her music, you'll know it's heartfelt no matter what language it's in...Mo Deora

Journey - The Essential Journey (2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

An excellant album that will replace your greatest hits collection and album tracks to cover all tastes and keep most Journey fans reasonably happy with the songs chosen for the cd. The only fault been that they left off 'Why can't this night go on forever' which would have finished the cd off.This essential Journey will prove Journey are probably the best (underated in Britain) rock bands ever.

Beck, Bogert and Appice - Live in Japan (1973)(2006 Remaster Edit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Excellent addition to any prog music collection.

This album was in par excellent with live albums by other classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin “The Song Remains The Same”, Deep Purple “Made In Japan”, Grand Funk “Live” and Humble Pie “Live at Fillmore”. They were all so rockin’! Of course, all of them were part of musical listening zone during that age and I did enjoy them very much. As far as BBA concerns, I especially like how Beck explores his range of technical capabilities in sliding his guitar. It’s marvelous. No wonder, when in February 14, 2006 I had a dinner with Mick Box (Uriah Heep) he replied my question of “Who is your favorite guitar players?” with “Jeff Beck!”.

Of course, it’s not only Jeff Beck who rocked the audience during the the show in Japan. Tim Bogert also performed his tight and dynamic bass lines excellently while Carmine Appice not only providing beats for the rest musicians but he also played dynamically to create great grooves of the songs performed. Of course, the most legendary track is Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”. But other tracks also excellent. “Jeff’s Boogie” and “Going Down” are also great favorite of all time. Having known how the band performed and how this record was so popular during 70s, I can only say that this is a gem of 70s that no one should miss...Bob Hope

Uriah Heep - High and Mighty (1976) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By 1976, Uriah Heep was on shaky ground. Although they had scored a big success with Return to Fantasy, the group was suffering from personality conflicts (vocalist David Byron left after this album) and division over their musical direction. This tension is visibly apparent on High and Mighty, an album that shows flashes of the group's old firepower, but is ultimately sunk by a combination of unfocused experimentation and uneven songwriting. It starts promisingly with a solid first side: "One Way or Another" is a surging, dramatic hard rocker that features Ken Hensley trading verses with bassistmore… John Wetton, and "Misty Eyes" is an engaging up-tempo tune that trades the group's hard rock thunder for a sound built on some tasty acoustic guitar riffs. It also contains one of the group's finest songs in "Midnight," a meditation on the price of success that neatly balances Mick Box's soaring guitar leads with an array of lush keyboard textures from Ken Hensley. This song is also notable for the dramatic, heart-wrenching vocal it is given by David Byron. However, High and Mighty fails to maintain this standard of quality on its second side. Several of the songs find the band flirting with pop elements in a way that doesn't compliment their hard rocking style: "Can't Stop Singing" starts curiously with "Monty Python"-style mock tribal chants before devolving into a silly keyboard pop tune, and the hard rock energy of "Woman of the World" is sunk by the ridiculously bouncy beat and English music hall-style piano it is saddled with. The second side also sports a surprisingly lame and derivative rocker in "Make a Little Love," a throwaway that sounds like an uninspired attempt to duplicate the sound of Bad Company. All in all, High and Mighty is far too uneven to win Uriah Heep any new fans, but it contains enough solid rockers to make it worth a listen for the group's devoted ones...Robert Hoffnung

Rare Earth - Ma (1973)(1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rare Earth's most satisfying LP, Norman Whitfield wrote and produced all five songs. "Ma," the title track, had been done by Temptations and Undisputed Truth but nobody rocked the sucker like Rare Earth; they jam for 17:17 on the funkiest mama song ever. "Hum Along and Dance," first appeared on the Temptations' Psychedelic Shack; Rare Earth gives the groover and update, a rolling organ sets it off. Lead, Gil Bridges brags about his musical ability on the loud, horn dominated stomper "Big John In My Name."A haunting arrangement of "Smiling Faces Sometimes" will make you shiver. And you don't getmore… much more sensual than the soft and lush "Come With Me," where a female simulates an orgasm that puts Donna Summers' exhibition on "Love to Love You Baby" to shame; it's the only new song on the LP, but who's quibbling, MA is da bomb!

Little River Band - Diamantina Cocktail (1977)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Diamantina Cocktail was the first Little River Band album to make signficant commercial headway in America, peaking at number 49 on the album charts and spawning the hit singles "Happy Anniversary" and "Help is on Its Way." With its laidback, sweet country-rock, the album has a simliar sound to the band's debut, but the melodies are a little sharper and catchier, making the album a better, more fully-rounded collection.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Nightingales and Bombers (1975)(Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The album that was Manfred Mann's commercial breakthrough was a departure from the previous albums made with the Earth Band. Though the personnel are the same and the musicianship is as mind blowing as ever, the songs are shorter and punchier, in some cases more poppy. This is not to say that the band had sacrificed a bit of ingenuity or complexity, but the long jams are gone in favor of briefer sound portraits. The perfect example is the cover of "Blinded by the Light" by a then obscure songwriter named Bruce Springsteen. A listen to the original version, a rambling stream-of-consciousness piece reminiscent of early Dylan, doesn't hint at the delightfully bizarre possibilities Mann and the Earth Band extracted from the tune. Taking a piece of folk-rock, giving it a cool, spooky delivery, and adding a full-band treatment created an uncategorizable masterpiece. It was a number one hit for Mann and a major career boost for its author, and Mann released Springsteen covers on several subsequent albums. A second single from the album, "Time Is Right," also charted, becoming one of the only pieces written in 10/4 time ever to do so. Nightingales and Bombers featured in almost every "Best of the Year" list for 1975. Justifiably so -- though attention at the time was naturally on the hits, the rest of the album features a mix of good originals and eccentric covers, inspired playing, and tight, focused arrangements. The album stands up to repeated listening decades after it was created, and though fans of the more expansive progressive phase may prefer earlier works, they will generally allow the excellence of this one. The name of the album was once regarded as a possible drug reference, but it is actually taken from a nature recording made during World War II. An ornithologist who was trying to record birdcalls captured not only the sound of birds, but also of incoming enemy aircraft. That recording is used in the track "As Above, So Below," and gives it an eerie character....Bob Hope

Jethro Tull - Too Old To Rock 'N' Roll: Too Young To Die! (1976) (2002 Remaster Edit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While this album was supposedly a concept album, it takes a lot of effort to follow the story. This album also departs from Tull's usual styling, which is an unusual comment given that I have emphasized in other reviews of Tull CDs that Tull has always followed their own musical path.
"Quizz Kid" starts out mellow and slow with strings and an easy electric guitar riff. However, indicative of the punk age of the time, bass and electric guitar riffs push themselves to the front, and this song sounds like a punk-influenced hard rock song. The lyrics are about going on a game show with the hopesmore… of winning big.
"Crazed Institution" does not try to mislead you. From the very beginning the beat of this song speaks rock. By this song you are under the impression that Ian Anderson was striving for a harder edge on this album as compared to Tull's earlier folk-flavored offerings. The lyrics in this song are about celebrity and fame and the insanity that such status causes a person's life.
"Salamander" provides the first real flavor of Jethro Tull as the group had been known up to this time. Clever acoustic guitar picking takes you halfway through the piece until a heavily echoed Ian Anderson brings on the vocals. The contrast between the acoustic and folk-flavored instruments and the echoed voice is interesting and makes me wish that Ian had explored this song in greater depth.
From a lyrical viewpoint, "Taxi Grab" is a relatively lightweight offering, and is not a fan favorite. From a musical viewpoint, this song is a rocker, bass and harmonica driven, a blues-flavored hard rock song. The music is pretty good, but the weak lyrics detract a bit.
"From a Dead Beat to an Old Greaser" begins in a traditional Tull style, dirge-like and acoustic. The lyrics tell a story of someone sinking further and further into the depths, perhaps becoming the character of Aqualung. The music remains acoustic until the end, keeping the dirge-like tune, though a saxophone-flavored bridge gives the song an interesting style.
"Bad-Eyed and Loveless" gives you the viewpoint of a woman as an old man thinks he would have seen her as a young man. The instruments backing this song are minimal, principally an acoustic guitar. This song continues the theme of someone who has degraded into the character of Aqualung; you have to wonder how much deeper into the depths this person can go.
"Big Dipper" shakes off the acoustics and allows the electric guitars to stretch their licks once more. There are interesting percussion effects in this song as well as an instrument that I believe was a Vako Orchestron, a synthesizer. The musical effects are unique. The lyrics are all about fun and sex, the theme deceptively lightweight, hiding perhaps a sinister undertone.
I enjoy "Too Old to Rock `N' Roll: Too Young to Die". This song is bombastic, and perhaps the only song on this CD that shows much progressive rock influence. The instruments are dramatic and strident, punctuating the notes in harmony rather than any extensive counterpoint. Lyrically this song is about aging rockers when they get too old for the perceived style of rock that has historically emphasized youth, and of course they have many years left to live. I wonder what Ian Anderson thinks of this song today.
"Pied Piper" has just a touch of folk-rock flavoring mixed into a rock beat. The Vako Orchestron makes another easily discerned appearance, providing an unusual musical voice. Because of the synthesizer sound, this song makes me think that perhaps Ian Anderson was influenced by Wendy Carlos, who created "Switched-On Bach" and several other all synthesizer albums. Lyrically, the character that sank to the depths of despair has been patched up and made anew, and now eyes young girls lasciviously.
"The Chequered Flag", is a song that provides some soaring music and vocals, and yet is a bitter-sweet ending. The lyrics are about the incompletion of life. The unfinished symphonies, the unread books, the tasks imagined and never satisfactorily accomplished. The music is mellow, synthesizer and strings providing the core sound.

followed by two bonus tracks...

While Jethro Tull has historically combined folk and rock, this album is more a product of its time. A synthesizer is clearly heard in several songs. Several songs are hard rock. The Jethro Tull of "Thick as a Brick", "Aqualung" and "Songs from the Wood" has temporarily taken on the mantle of contemporary rocker. If Tull had not created the other albums for comparison, a listener might readily enjoy this one. However, even Tull with their eclectic style moved too much to center for many fans, and perhaps lost a few fans as a result. However, this album is, while not comparable to the best of Tull, a good 70s rock album. While I am unable to provide a strong recommendation for this album, for Tull fans it is a must own. For casual listeners, I recommend the previously mentioned albums, along with others that have a strong folk-rock and progressive influence.

Camel - The Paris Collection (2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

New CD from prog band features 10 live tracks, including the bonus track 'Slow Yourself Down' (Rehersal Version) from Camel Productions.

Perfectly, the album opens with Ice, a track from the album: I can See Your House From Here, I never get tired of hearing it. This surely must be one of the finest instrument tracks ever been written. After this serene start the tempo is soon lifted up with the second track Chord Change again another instrumental. This piece has lost none of it's chemistry over the years. The general mood of the album is somewhat laid back and the following song reflects this with the beautiful acoustic version of Fingertips, taken from the Stationary Traveller album. Next we go back to Camel's debut album for the first of the two versions of Slow Yourself Down, track four follows with the more traditional arrangement of the piece, taken from the concert and features some excellent organ. I noticed the album is slightly more instrumental than previous albums but the lack of vocals is compensated perfectly by the chemistry between both old and new bandmembers. Sahara, the only track taken from Rajaz best demonstrates this and all the musicians sound wonderfully close together. The CD moves into a rockier mode for the first of three tracks from Dust and Dreams, starting with Mother Road slipping into the atmospheric Little Rivers and Little Rose and finishing up with Hopeless Anger. And finally the last track from the concert is a Camel favourite, Lady Fantasy. I have no problem in recommending this CD. There is enough variation within the structure and arrangements of Camel's material for the release of another live album...P. Kistmaker

Camel - Dust And Dreams (1991)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Camel packed up their bags and moved to California, with the dust of a seven-years span of quiet on their backs, and the dream of creative freedom through their own label, Camel Productions, ahead of them. Inspired by the John Steinbeck novel "The Grapes of Wrath" (and one can only hope that Camel's westward move went smoother), Dust and Dreams is exactly the sort of labor of love that makes a private label worth having. Elegiac, literate, largely instrumental in spots, this stuff would make most label executives' eyes glaze over. It's also the sort of finely wrought music that will delight Camelmore… fans who still fondly imagine their band in the Nude. Despite the long absence since Stationary Traveller, many familiar faces return to Camel's ranks: Susan Hoover, Ton Scherpenzeel, Colin Bass, David Paton, and Paul Burgess. Andy Latimer, of course, remains the pivotal figure, writing the songs, taking the vocal leads (his sleepy, deep delivery sesting a Watersed-down version of Pink Floyd), driving the music with his masterful guitar work. This last point is worth resting at a moment, since Latimer's guitar has grown audibly since we last heard him. While some of the guitar passages are classic Camel (e.g., "Cotton Camp"), Latimer is just as likely to invoke the image of David Gilmour ("End of the Line") and Steve Hackett ("Broken Banks," "Hopeless Anger"). Like Nude, Dust and Dreams initially divides its time between songs and instrumentals before ceding halfway through to purely instrumental music. The 18 tracks are interconnected, separated only by a four-second delay before "End of the Line," effectively marking a first and second act. The introductory "Dust Bowl" is a quiet overture reminiscent of Brian Eno, the closing "Whispers in the Rain" is actually an epilogue (the real curtain comes crashing down on "Hopeless Anger"). If it all sounds like a structured play, that's because Dust and Dreams is. The disc exists as a single work broken into two sections, inextricably bound together in the composer's mind (themes return, specific points of action take place). In retrospect, it's probably a wonder that Nude ever got off the ground, and few studios would have taken a flyer on the equally ambitious Dust and Dreams. Thank goodness Andy Latimer had the fortitude to see this through to completion; it is the mature work of an indomitable dreamer, if a little downbeat. It lacks the immediate melodies of Nude (which many would concede is the better album), but the victories here are harder won and thus to be prized by fans who were still scanning the horizon for the shadow of Camel's tall spirit...

The Pretty Things - The BBC Sessions (1964-1975)(2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Pretty Things were really two groups. 1. The studio band who used the facilities of Abbey Road to their ultimate and produced crafted recordings the equal of The Beatles. 2. The live band who shed many of the niceties in favour of dynamics and a heavier, rockier sound.This excellent value double CD (each one is 79 minutes long) highlights much of the bands BBC session work which extended from 1964 through to 1973. Many of the songs underwent changes during the course of numerous gigs and these changes were usually for the better. The inclusion of guitarist Peter Tolson on the Parachute materialmore… also served to kick the songs onto a different harder hitting plain and also served to illustrate his wonderful and much missed guitar virtuosity.Repertoire's packaging and Mike Stax's sleeve notesd is first rate. The only grouse being the missed opportunity to hear a number of songs that were never recorded and survive still in the BBC vaults.

This collection of work from the B.B.C. Sessions gives you an overall view of the 'Pretties' career from 1964 to 1976. All the early singles are here. (The Pretty Things had a surge of popularity stateside when David Bowie covered their first two singles 'Rosalyn' and 'Don't Bring Me Down' on his album Pin Ups. To many Americans this was the first time they ever heard of the 'Pretty Things'.)
It all goes a bit pear shaped in their psychedelic era, but then it did for a lot of people (remember the Stones? Or Their Satanic Majesties Request?), but on their return to hard edged rock 'n' roll, like on the Radio One 'In Concert' show to promote 'Freeway Madness', the band is so hot, it is incendiary. Nobody can throw caution to the wind with such abandon and still nail a song down like the 'Pretties' like 'Onion Soup' and especially 'Route 66'. The live sessions for the following two albums are a little more controlled, but equally as exciting. This album is not only a good overview of the Pretty Things' career, but also a good overview of British rock in this era. If you are not familiar with the Pretty Things, this album would be an excellent way to find out...Bob Hope

Paul McCartney - Wings Over America: Live 1976 (1997)

This album is perhaps one of the best live rock albums of all time, capturing McCartney at his best. Two discs contain stellar material from start to finish, including some gems from the Beatle era, and even Denny Lane singing on the Moody Blues' hit "Go Now." The highlight of the album, though, is probably "Maybe I'm Amazed," by all accounts a performance that eclipses the studio version...T. Anschultz

Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night (2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kings Of Leon are a rock band made up of three brothers and a cousin, from Columbia, Tennessee, U.S.A. Their influences range from Southern rock, indie, to blues styles. Their critically acclaimed first and second albums have given them a devoted following, especially in Europe. The group's name is derived from Nathan, Caleb, and Jared Followill's father and grandfather, both named Leon.
'Only By The Night' is the fourth album by Kings Of Leon. It was released on September 19th 2008 in the Republic of Ireland, Germany, Australia and Belgium and September 22/23rd 2008 in the UK and U.S.A. This fourth album from the Followill's finds them re-connecting with their Southern roots. In a similar vein to 2003's 'Youth And Young Manhood', Kings Of Leon reaffirm their country origins while still writing powerful rock numbers that sit comfortably next to some revealing down-tempo numbers. Although this is the Kings Of Leon's heaviest to date, fans won't find it to be a huge departure from the band's already impressive back catalogue. To date the album has peaked at No.1 in the charts in the UK, Australia and Ireland.

With 2007's Because of the Times, Kings of Leon ventured out of the garage and into the arena. Tracks like "Black Thumbnail" and "Camaro" were bold anthemic rock songs that built upon the barnyard stomp of Youth & Young Manhood, and Because of the Times topped the U.K. charts upon its debut, officially crowning the Kings as rock & roll royalty in the process. Only by the Night arrives one year later, marking the band's fastest turnaround between albums; it also furthers the epic sound that Times introduced, flaunting a set of ringing guitars and radio-ready melodies that push the band away from the Allman Brothers' camp. If anything, much of this album takes up residence in U2's cathedral, particularly during the one-two-three punch of "Sex on Fire," "Use Somebody," and "Manhattan." Caleb Followill doesn't adopt Bono's political agenda, but the same sort of uplift exists throughout the record, which -- during its best moments -- rivals Aha Shake Heartbreak as the band's best work to date.

Like many big-sounding albums, Only by the Night is a polarizing piece of work, one that targets new fans at the expense of those who wish Kings of Leon had never shaved their beards or discovered post-'70s rock. To rope in the skeptics, the strongest tracks are pushed toward the album's first half. "Crawl" flexes the band's rock & roll muscle, melding Led Zeppelin-styled crunch with the experimental guitar buzz of U2's Achtung Baby, while "Sex on Fire" makes up for its goofy title with a meteoric chorus tailored to Caleb's voice. (He sounds fantastic throughout the record, even if his vocals continue to be garbled by some untraceable accent, as if he's auditioning for the Jodie Foster role in a Broadway adaptation of Nell.) Rounding out the hit-filled segment are "Use Somebody" and "Manhattan," where Matthew Followill cloaks his guitar riffs in reverb and bassist Jared Followill takes the spotlight sporadically, popping up for quick melodic fills before ducking back into the mix. While past Kings of Leon albums concerned themselves with alcohol, women, and other hedonistic themes, those two songs are nothing but pop/rock grandeur, and Caleb howls their hopeful lyrics like Bono's American-born cousin. Only by the Night focuses on textures and experimentation during the album's latter half, but most songs still deliver some sort of Technicolor melody, from "Notion" (one of the only tracks featuring piano) to the unexpected chorus of "Be Somebody." Taken as a whole, Only by the Night targets the audience that approved Kings of Leon's sonic shift in 2007, leaving older fans free to damn these tracks for their consciously grand approach. Yes, the album is indebted to U2. Yes, it briefly veers close to the same territory occupied by Meat Loaf and Journey, if only in the passion of Caleb's voice. But Only by the Night is still a potent Kings of Leon record, and the guys have never defined their ambition so clearly before...Andrew Leahey

Cat Power - Jukebox ([Limited Edition 2CD)(2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Eight years is a long time in almost any artist's career, but in Cat Power's case, it's an even more sizeable gulf, as Chan Marshall's collections of other people's songs reflect. 2000's The Covers Record found her becoming an ever more nuanced performer, tempering the rawness and intensity of her earlier albums with a lighter approach. 2008's Jukebox reaffirms what a polished artist she's become, especially since her Memphis soul homage The Greatest. But where The Greatest sometimes bordered on slick, Jukebox's blend of country, soul, blues, and jazz feels lived-in and natural. Marshall recordedmore… this set with her touring act, the Dirty Delta Blues Band, which includes some of indie rock's finest players, including her longtime drummer, the Dirty Three's Jim White — who gives even the quietest moments vitality — as well as Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's Judah Bauer and Chavez's Matt Sweeney, so it's not surprising that the album often plays like an especially well-recorded concert. However, some of the session legends she worked with on The Greatest make guest appearances, including Teenie Hodges and Spooner Oldham. Oldham's song for Janis Joplin, "A Woman Left Lonely," appears here, and the original's sophisticated yet earthy sound is one of the album's biggest influences.

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust (1972) (30th Anniversary Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Thirty years on, Ziggy Stardust more than holds up, sounds incredibly refreshing, is truly timeless, comes as a revelation, etc., etc. Over the years, much has been made of what a visionary work this is, and it's still fun to marvel at how its themes encapsulate the entire history of rock--including rock-yet-to-come in the forms of punk, and even the deaths of Elvis and Kurt Cobain. Bowie merged rock archetypes from the '50s and '60s with theater to create a brand-new mythology. In that sense, he was sort of Bruce Springsteen in makeup. But beyond that, it's astonishing to hear how great the late, wonderful Mick Ronson's guitar and the Spiders from Mars still sound today. When they sing "Wonderful" behind Bowie on the "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide" finale, they could be referring to this album. This 30th anniversary edition includes a second disc of demos, singles (including the very Berlin cabaret-esque "Arnold Corns" releases), and a few essential outtakes--notably the decadent "Sweet Head"--that haven't been available in nearly a decade...Bill Holdship

Wow. 3-stars for Ziggy Stardust? Let me emphasize something right from the start: 3-stars is not indicative of my feelings towards the music contained on this set. Ziggy is a classic album, and deserves that status. In fact, in deserves far more than is offered in this poorly planned, shoddy two-disc "30th Anniversary Edition" offered from EMI. Ziggy Stardust has been reissued countless times on CD in the past 15 years. In fact, let's take an inventory. There was the original, from-second-generation-tapes-but-unprocessed RCA disc that's currently having something of a critical renaissance. There was the original Rykodisc issue which came with bonus tracks. There was the anniversary Ryko box, with the same disc but a great box/booklet (far nicer than the one in this 30th Anniversary volume, and packaged much better to boot). Then there was the gold, Au20 series disc issued by Rykodisc (remastered again), and then in 1999 the Virgin reissue of the disc, which deleted the bonus tracks. And then this. While not publicized quite as much, it seems as if David might be competing with Hendrix or Elvis for "most endlessly reissued album" in this particular case. So, uh, what do we have here, then? Well, we've got a two-disc set, held together by some *very* fragile packaging (the booklet seems almost designed to fall apart!). The main set is remastered again (although not very well...we'll get to that in a moment), and is supplemented by a second disc of bonus tracks. Unfortunately, the iteration of "Ziggy" here is, I dare to say, the worst version on CD. The sound is slightly muddier than the already-overcompressed Virgin CD, but that isn't the main problem. What *is* a problem is the fact that the stereo channels of the album are reversed and intros to two songs (the acoustic segue between Ziggy and Suffragette City and the count-in to Hang On To Yourself) are missing. Missing. Inexcusable, and it's unfathomable that of all issues of the album, it's the "milestone" 30th anniversary set that's botched. And the bonus tracks? Not only could they fit on the first disc--which, in current record company logic, would probably knock the price down a few notches--they've almost all been released before, mostly on the Ryko edition. There's nothing revelatory here, and although it's certainly nice to have these selections in print again, one must wonder why more effort wasn't expended in getting some nice, *really* never-been-heard-before vault tracks. The verdict? If you absolutely, positively have never heard Ziggy before...well, don't buy this, as it's the only version on disc to actually make mistakes representing the original work. Track down the Ryko editions if you want bonus tracks, or grab the single-disc version (which really isn't all that bad) or--gasp--the RCA if you're so inclined. This set is for collectors, plain and simple...David Goodwin

Scorpions - Fly To The Rainbow (1974) (2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On their second effort, Fly to the Rainbow, the Scorpions begin to establish their trademark hard-rock sound while exorcising the last of their remaining psychedelic hippie tendencies. In fact, the band bursts out of the gate in surprisingly straightforward fashion with the hard rocking "Speedy's Coming" before resorting to the aforementioned bad habits on otherwise promising tracks such as "Fly People Fly" and "They Need a Million"; the first never really gets off the ground, seeming almost like a prelude to the title track, and the second is let down by the weak vocals of guitarists Rudolf Schenkermore… and Uli Jon Roth, who have no business competing against vocalist Klaus Meine. Roth insists, however, on taking center stage for "Drifting Sun," which exposes his shameless Hendrix-isms, down to the opening riff lifted straight out of "Spanish Castle Magic." And while it closes the album in rather schizophrenic fashion, the epic nine-minute title track would become a concert standard — albeit without its senseless folky intro. Fly to the Rainbow is another growing experience for the Scorpions; and the band would truly hit the jackpot with the following year's In Trance...Bob Hope

The Who - Live at Royal Albert Hall (3CD Set 2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After completing the tour of North America in December, 1982, Townshend spent part of 1983 trying to write material for the next studio Who album. By the end of 1983, however, Townshend had declared himself unable to generate material which he felt was appropriate for The Who and he issued a public statement in December, 1983, wherein he announced his decision to leave The Who. With Townshend formally ending The Who as an entity producing new music. Over the years, The Who re-united many times for various concerts.
"Live at the Royal Albert Hall" captures a charity concert for a cancer organization the reunited group performed in November of 2000. This is an exceptional reunion concert, finding the band at their strongest since their early-'80s breakup. Supported by drummer Zak Starkey and longtime keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and John Entwistle sound reinvigorated, playing such standards as "I Can't Explain" and "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" with vigor and energy, as if they haven't played them countless times. The group also stretches out, as Townshend contributes a new bridge to "The Kids Are Alright" and the band jams through "Magic Bus," "5:15," and "Won't Get Fooled Again," showing both dexterity and muscle. While nobody would mistake this show with the careening power and unpredictability of the band at their peak in the '60s and '70s, this is an impressive mix of maturity, professionalism, and passion, finding the group regaining their sense of authority and integrity. At three discs, this is a bit long, but for those longtime fans, there's plenty to like here. After all, it's very rare for a reunion album to be this good, and it's even rarer to have one with cameos as good as those here -- Townshend's duet with Paul Weller on "So Sad About Us" and two songs fronted by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder ("I'm One," "Getting in Tune") are as good as those songs by Daltrey, and help make Live at the Royal Albert Hall a really pleasant surprise.

The bonus CD features four songs from The Who's last concert with John Entwistle before his death, from February 8, 2002.

UFO - BBC RadioOne - Live In Concert (1974-1980) (1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

First four tracks here come from a 1974 concert,where the superb twin guitar sound of Michael Schenker and Paul Chapman more than sizzles. The rest of the disc was pulled from a later gig. This is one band I've never gotten to see play live. Maybe there's still hope.Heard they still tour with three(is it?)original/classic line-up members. A fan can't ask for too much more than that. Cuts that make this CD a true keeper are "No Place To Run","Only You Can Rock Me","Lights Out",the ass-kicking "Rock Bottom","Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot". A good classic hard rock title to have...Rainer Zuphall

Cuby & The Blizzards - Trippin Thru A Midnight Blues (1968)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Although unknown to the English-speaking market, Cuby the Blizzards have been one of Holland's top blues bands since the mid-'60s. Some of their early singles had a beat/punk orientation, particularly "Stumble Fall" and "Your Body Not Your Soul," both of which would be reissued on various Dutch beat compilations a few decades later. They quickly settled into a straighter blues groove, however. Their claims to fame in the larger rock/pop world are that they briefly backed Van Morrison in the gap between his departure from Them and the beginning of his solo career, although details of the association remain murky; also, at one point lead guitarist Eelco Gelling was asked to join John Mayall's Bluebreakers, although he declined.

With a line-up featuring Muskee, Gelling, Van Eik, Brood and Beekman, Cuby & The Blizzards record the album Trippin’ thru’ a Midnight Blues, with the horn section of Eduard Ninck-Blok, Roel Hemmes and Jenne Meinema, their buddies from the northern music scene. The single ‘Window of my Eyes’ was in the Dutch Top 40 for ten weeks, and is considered to be the band’s most important song.

Cuby & The Blizzards - Groeten Uit Grollo (1967)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s 1964, Britain has got the Stones, the Beatles, the Animals and a truckload of other “blues”-bands. And Holland? The Dutch just got themselves Cuby & The Blizzards. Unlike so many little white blues bands in the mid-sixties, these guys actually know their stuff. In a few years time, they don’t just rock the proverbial boat a bit, they actually matter. When Van Morrisson calls it quits with Them, they back him up until he manages to get his solo-career going. Sometime during 1967, Eddie Boyd is touring Holland and Western Europe, and ends up with John Mayall staying at Harry “Cuby” Muskee’s farm in Grollo. This resulted in the 1967 album “Praise The Blues”.
Their other 1967 release was “Groeten Uit Grollo” (“Greetings From Grollo”). The latter record kicks off with a strong, full sound of early blues-rock, firmly planted in the Chicago blues and more importantly, the sound of John Lee Hooker. But this act was more then just overdriven guitars and a big amp-stack, and they aren’t afraid to show it. The band is tight, experienced for its youth, and the musicianship displayed here is only hinting to the greatness to come over the next four decades.Right from the moment the Blizzards were formed, they were a domestic hit, and this record shows very well why. These are white kids, grown up in relative security and wealth, yet they understand the blues the way John Mayall or Eric Clapton understand the blues. Subsequently, The Blizzards ended up being more or less to the Dutch blues scene what the Headhunters had been to the early post-war Chicago blues circuit. The music on this disc follows standard blues patterns, the chord changes are regular, the turn-arounds are basic and standard, but the entirety of its sound is something else.
Cuby can belt the blues, that’s obvious from the first cut. The piano has a strong foundation in the band. Herman Brood (who was to go on to be one of the mainstays in Dutch pop-music and sadly committed suicide in 2001) knew his blues piano, and already shows that he could sing too.Cuby’s ability to write good lyrics shines through very strong here. His lyrics have hints towards the blues lyrics of the future, of today.From the first day on, Cuby & the Blizzards have drawn strongly on their main influence, the King of Boogie, John Lee Hooker. They honor him here with their own renditions of a couple of his sixties-cuts: “King Of The World” and “No Shoes”. Strictly speaking “Baby Please Don’t Go” could be in that list too, but to my ear they are tipping their hat to Lightnin’ Hopkins and Big Joe Williams more there then to Hooker. “The Big Bell” is of course an Eddie Boyd song.Cuby always has had his own philosophy of how to play John Lee Hooker’s work. He believes in giving it your own spin: you shouldn’t try to sound like the master, ‘cause you can’t. I’m not sure if I agree with him, but one thing I do know: Cuby’s renditions are certainly worthy.

Nektar - Journey To The Centre Of The Eye (1971)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Nektar's debut album became one of their finest releases, saturated with abstract psychedelia and a wonderful science-fiction motif that is magnified through the rigorous but dazzling Mellotron of Allan Freeman and Roye Albrighton's nomadic guitar playing. Throughout Journey's 13 cuts, Nektar introduced their own sort of instrumental surrealism that radiated from both the vocals and from the intermingling of the haphazard drum and string work. With the synthesizer churning and boiling in front of Howden's percussive attack and Mick Brockett's "liquid lights," tracks like "Astronaut's Nightmare," "It's All in the Mind," and both "Dream Nebula" cuts teeter back and forth from mind-numbing, laid-back melodies to excitable, open-ended excursions of fantastical progressive rock. Just as Hawkwind was exploring the depths of outer space with their progressive tendencies on most of their albums, Journey to the Centre of the Eye musically probed the inner universe of the mind and body with its very own conceptual field trip. "Burn Out My Eyes" and "Warp Oversight" are let loose with buzz-saw vocals and hazy, undefined guitar chords which converge and fade into background rhythms, while the 54 seconds of "Look Inside Yourself" is a short, illusory voyage that ends too soon. Nektar's freewheeling sound is best felt on Journey and on their next three releases, as by the end of the decade, their progressive moods and ambient-like suites started to get harder and take on more of a mainstream feel. ..Robert Hoffnung

Very good prog with some influences from space rockers like Pink Floyd, but other influences from the prog of say, King Crimson, Yes and maybe ELP, though not as dominated by keyboard virtuosity like ELP. The prominent Mellotron gives this album a great Crimson feel, though there is no sax. "Countenance" has some fantastic guitar work and haunting electric keyboard. "Warp Oversight" shows some resemblance to "Interstellar Overdrive" with it's interesting keyboard effects and fractured guitar. "The Dream Nebula (Pt. 1)" and it's second part on side two have some pretty ferocious guitar work at times and some more prog-like keyboard sections with vocals mixed in. "It's All in the Mind" is another fantastic track with great lyrics and layers of keyboard, bass, and guitar sound...Bob Hope

Dire Straits - Making Movies (1980) (Remaster Edit 2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Without second guitarist David Knopfler, Dire Straits began to move away from its roots rock origins into a jazzier variation of country-rock and singer/songwriter folk-rock. Naturally, this means that Mark Knopfler's ambitions as a songwriter are growing, as the storytelling pretensions of Making Movies indicate. Fortunately, his skills are increasing, as the lovely "Romeo and Juliet," "Tunnel of Love," and "Skateaway" indicate. And Making Movies is helped by a new wave-tinged pop production, which actually helps Knopfler's jazzy inclinations take hold. The record runs out of steam toward the end, closing with the borderline offensive "Les Boys," but the remainder of Making Movies ranks among the band's finest work...S. T. Erlewine

Although it produced no hit singles, "Making Movies" is beyond question Dire Straits' masterpiece. Mark Knopfler's ripping guitar forms the backdrop for seven beautiful, haunting, fiercely personal cuts. Every song perfectly captures a deep human emotion, from the bitter heartache of "Romeo And Juliet" to the angry defiance of "Solid Rock" to the steamy lustfulness of "Expresso Love". There are no weak songs, though the bouncy and playful "Les Boys", which ends the album, seems a bit out of place compared to the six deadly earnest songs that precede it. Yes, the album owes a heavy debt of gratitude to Springsteen, with many cuts building on the Boss's signature guitar/organ/piano framework. But, Knopfler's vocal delivery and deft guitar work, plus the band's sparser and cleaner arrangements, never allow you to forget that you're listening to Dire Straits. Only "Tunnel Of Love", which sounds like a cross between "Thunder Road" and "Sandy" strays a little too far into Bruce's territory but for that the boys can be forgiven.
One tip: this album must be heard in its entirety to be fully appreciated. It will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion, something that no greatest hits album can ever duplicate...Manfred Mandel

Cactus - Fully Unleashed- The Live Gigs(1970-72)(2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With the exception of a few numbers on assorted multi-artist collections and the trio of tunes included on 'Ot 'N' Sweaty (1972), American blues-rockers Cactus were poorly represented as a performing act until this release. Fully Unleashed: The Live Gigs (2004) is the companion volume to the similarly thorough Barely Contained: The Studio Sessions (2004). Each double-disc package is filled with not only the combo's respective four long-players, but also plenty of remarkable and previously vaulted sides. That is an understatement when considering the two-plus hours of vintage concert material from three distinct incarnations of Cactus, centering on the first lineup's final show on December 19, 1971 at Ellis Auditorium in Memphis, TN. Jim McCarty's wailing lead electric guitar introduction to "Long Tall Sally" is a precursor to the hard-and-heavy onslaught that alternately pulverizes and soars on other classic covers, such as their (dare say) definitive workout of Mose Allison's "Parchment Farm" or the 17-plus-minute oldies medley containing "Heeby Jeebies" and "Money," plus the Memphis-apropos "Hound Dog" and "What'd I Say." The original roster is additionally featured on "No Need to Worry" and another incendiary reading of "Parchment Farm" from the 1970 Isle of Wight performance. Although both were initially available on the First Great Rock Festivals of the Seventies (1971) anthology, neither has been on CD before. A short-lived lineup with Ron Leejack (guitar) was captured on the title track to One Way...Or Another and "Bro. Bill" from June 27, 1971 at Gillian's in Buffalo, New York, and the remaining cuts are from the group's April 1972 appearance at the Mar y Sol Pop Festival in Puerto Rico with Werner Fritzsching (guitar) and former Atomic Rooster member Peter French (vocals). While "Swim," "Bad Mother Boogie" and "Out L'il Rock-N-Roll Thing" were incorporated into 'Ot 'N' Sweaty, "Bedroom Mazurka" can be found on the out-of-print Mar y Sol (1972) compilation...

Nektar - Remember the Future 1973 (Remaster Edit 2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It has always amazed me how bands so full of talent get overlooked, while some crappy bands can sell zillions of records...such is the case with Nektar's "Remember The Future". This prog rock album is among the best, right up there with Yes' "Close To The Edge" or various ELP releases. "Remember The Future" comes off quite originally. The movements fit together well, and although it tells a story in a prolonged song, there are plenty of grab-your-attention riffs and hooks. There is not the flashy keyboard playing of Rick Wakeman or Keith Emerson; the guitar work instead has a haunting beauty to it.
Finally! After waiting over 10 years the guitar included digital remaster of the legendary lp 'Remeber the Future'. Painfully lisening to the audio cd that seemed to "erase" all or most of Roy's guitar parts have resurfaced in this remastered edition. Bonus tracks included, this Nektar album was the first to break big in the states after gaining muscial credablity in europe. The music swishes and sways in and out of your conciseness until you can reach a blissfull state. Great drumming & bass and keyboards and a great band in their prime..the remastered "Night at London Round House " has this more… album live and much, much more material than the lp so also a must buy! . 1974 was the last great year of the "progressive era" and this was one of its best lp's! Now Bellaphon please release "Tab in the Ocean " "Journey " and all the rest...Bob Hope

Badfinger.- Day After Day (Live1990)(Remaster Edit 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The only officially available live Badfinger release (not counting shoddy '90s recordings by Joey Molland's tacky cash-in project), 1990's Day After Day: Live compiles circa-1974 live tapes, modified in a way guaranteed to enrage purists. Because the original tapes were poorly recorded and unsalvageable, Molland took the soundboard tapes into a studio and re-recorded his own guitar and vocal parts, and, even worse, added a sampled snare drum, mixed far, far too loudly, to all of Mike Gibbins' drum tracks. These alterations are added with little subtlety and less grace, and they stick out like the proverbial sore thumb. In a further bit of self-serving idiocy, Molland re-sequenced the original tape (long a favorite on the bootleg circuit) to move all of his own songs to more prominent placements in the track list, putting all of Pete Ham and Tom Evans' songs at the end, utterly disrupting the flow of the original concert. A tacky, poorly done botch, Day After Day: Live should be avoided by all but the most die-hard Joey Molland worshipers...Bob Hope

Man - Man 1970 (Remaster Edit 2007)

Image Hosted by ParkYourPic

The group Man evolved from the Bystanders, a mid-'60s Welsh combo whose blend of Beatlesque harmonies and blue-eyed soul yielded a number of well-received singles, most notably the progressive and poppy "Royal Blue Summer Sunshine Day." That side was indicative of the direction they would take after changing their name to Man. Perhaps due to the eponymous moniker, this album has long been mistaken as a debut effort. However, prior to this title, they had already released a pair of LPs, Revelation (1969) and the somewhat more centered and ambitious follow-up 2 Ozs. of Plastic with a Hole in the Middle (1969). By the time of this platter, Clive John (organ/piano/electric guitar/harpsichord/vocals), Deke Leonard (guitar/vocals), Martin Ace (acoustic guitar/bass guitar/vocals), Terry Williams (percussion/drums), Roger Leonard (acoustic guitar/piano/electric guitar/steel guitar/vocals), and Micky Jones (acoustic guitar/electric guitar/vocals) had settled into what most enthusiasts consider to be a seminal aggregate. In addition to their exceptional improvisational skills, Man would display a more aggressive sound. The opening track, "Romain," instantly gels into driving blues behind Leonard's woozy steel guitar interjections. "Country Girl" is reminiscent of the New Riders of the Purple Sage, complete with a distinct West Coast county-rock lilt. Both of the extended pieces, "Would the Christians Wait Five Minutes?...The Lions Are Having a Draw" and "Alchemist" are pastiches of well-developed instrumentals, although at times they come off as somewhat dated. There is plenty of inspired interaction, however, especially on the latter song as they unleash some definitive heavy metal licks that could easily be mistaken for seminal Black Sabbath. "Daughter of the Fireplace" is another highlight as a compact and attitude-heavy rocker.

Caravan - Live At Fairfield Halls (1974) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Documented during an era in which U.K. performances by Caravan were few and far between, Live at the Fairfield Halls 1974 is a brilliantly remastered and likewise complete presentation of a concert held just prior to their inaugural tour of North America.
Although Caravan had been subjected to several key personnel and managerial alterations in the preceding months, once they hit the stage they shed any behind-the-scenes acrimony and were transformed into a stunning synergy of progressive and symphonic rock. This warm-up show took place on September 1, 1974, at Fairfield Hall in Croydon and was initially documented as a possible promotional tool for their upcoming stateside appearances. The tapes remained on deposit, seemingly forgotten, at the Decca studios storage facility in West Hampstead, U.K., until the stunning 19-minute "For Richard" was resurrected for inclusion on the two-LP Canterbury Tales compilation in 1976. Then, in 1980, the French budget label Kingdom Records issued a double album under the title The Best of Caravan Live. All but the most keen-eyed and -eared enthusiasts passed the set up as a poorly assembled hits package. It was, however, this show sans "Chance of a Lifetime" -- which the band rarely ever performed. Then as mysteriously as it appeared it was deleted and remains out of print.
On this release, the sound has been sonically scrubbed and is now presented faithful to the original presentation. Enthusiasts who prefer the band's lineup and subsequent edgier tone, circa For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night, will be doubly thrilled with this release as they re-create most of the album. Additionally, they wrap themselves around the crushing "Memory Lain, Hugh"/"Headloss" opener. Perhaps foreshadowing how powerful this rendition will be, the evening's proceedings fade in to the hovering resonation of Geoffrey Richardson's electric viola as he fiddles underneath the band's introduction. Caravan's most recent release concurrent to this performance is the equally impressive Caravan & the New Symphonia. From that disc comes "Virgin on the Ridiculous" -- performed here by just the quintet. Although composed for the incorporation of an orchestra, this rendition is leaner and displays the band's almost conversational way of jamming and improvising. The transition into the "Be Alright Now" suite is seamless, and, under the thunder sticks of Richard Coughlan (drums), the band is propelled into one of the only live versions of the medley to have been professionally documented.

With a well-deserved nod to the "New Symphonia," Live at the Fairfield Halls 1974 is the quintessential live Caravan release. The sound is crisp and the stereo image is direct and very warm. This disc is highly recommended for newly found fans as well as the more seasoned consumer...Robert Hoffnung

Birth Control - Backdoor Possibilities (1976) (1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Backdoor Possibilities" is an excellent concept based on a story about a corporate businessman who is trapped by his own success and who ultimately reflects on his life before meeting death in a subway. The album could equal even Gentle Giant when it comes to complexity and weird time-changes, and it's pretty obvious that Gentle Giant were a great inspiration for this album. Zeus B. Held is heavy on the Moog and string-synth here, and he comes up with loads of cool, varied and unusual sounds. Three of the six tracks are divided into several parts, so you can be sure that you won't get any straightforward stuff. And all of the tracks are absolutely outstanding complex mid-70's progressive rock. Highlights on the album include the opener "One First of April" and the closing number "No Time to Dye". The latter also mixes a very Yes-like chorus in at the end. "Beedeepees" is probably the most Gentle Giant-sounding track they ever recorded, both in sound and structure. "Futile Prayer" is a melodramatic ballad where drummer Noske's vocal unfortunately is a bit more accented than on the other tracks, but the song is still great. The melodic and powerful "Behind Grey Walls" have a strong Genesis-influence while the instrumental "La Cigüena de Zaragoza" is jazzier with a cool sax-part at the end...Bob Hope

Atlantis - It's Getting Better (1973)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Atlantis' second album 'It's Getting Better' was even more influenced by the musical ideas of Rumpf and Kravetz. Explained Kravetz: "Inga determines the image of this band like Rod Stewart with The Faces. Her voice makes our image." The new material was showcased by Atlantis in France, at the Paris Olympia on October 1, 1973. After the concert they returned to England for another four week tour. During the trip Kravetz was replaced by ex-Family Tree member Rainer Schnelle. Kravetz went on to become a member of Randy Pie. Half a year onwards and the line-up changed again, reflecting the constant pressures that musicians endure on the road. Ex-Curly Curve guitarist Alex Conti and English keyboard player Adrian Askew made their debut on the 'Spicy funk album' (Music Express), titled 'Ooh Baby'. The newcomers wrote seven of the songs on the album which was described by Britain's Sounds magazine as 'Germany's best soul'. Three of the songs were composed by Inga Rumpf.

Copperhead - Copperhead (1973 )

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Copperhead was a band organized by guitarist John Cipollina after he left Quicksilver Messenger Service in 1970. Cipollina, who had been a member of Quicksilver since its formation and whose lead guitar playing was its signature sound, had grown increasingly dissatisfied after the return of band founder Dino Valenti from a prison term, when the group grew larger and he found he had less space to play. He had also grown increasingly interested in playing sessions, which the band discouraged. The early days of Copperhead were casual, with the group consisting of a loose aggregation of people playing gigs with Cipollina. Eventually it coalesced into a quartet consisting of Cipolliana on lead guitar; Gary Philippet on vocals, second guitar, and organ; Jim McPherson on vocals, bass, and piano; and David Weber on drums. The group was initially signed to the Just Sunshine label run by Michael Lang, one of the organizers of Woodstock. But in 1972 it was signed to a major-label record deal by Clive Davis at Columbia and recorded its debut album, Copperhead, released in the spring of 1973. Unfortunately, Davis was fired from Columbia shortly after the album's release, an action that doomed any developing band that had been signed under his aegis. The album went nowhere, and when Columbia refused to release their second album, Copperhead folded. Cipollina went on to play in many different bands before dying in 1989
The music was driving rock and roll with Cipollina dominating tracks such as "Making a Monster", "Spin Spin" and "Roller Derby Star", the latter written by Kent Houseman and Gary Philippet and originally recorded by The Ducks. "Roller Derby Star" was issued as a single (Columbia 45810) and deserved to have been a hit. The band had an envialble live reputation and were thought by many to be poised on the brink of a major commercial succes but Columbia, who were going through the Clive Davis bust crisis, failed to exploit their excellent beginning and didn’t run a single major ad for the sparkling debut album. All this notwithstanding the band went to work on and completed a second album (seven tracks in all) which Columbia refused to issue. With Davis removal from Columbia the band were dropped and the album remains in the Columbia vaults. Despite the lack of promotion "Copperhead" sold remarkably well for Columbia and was re-issued in 1980...Robert Hoffnung

When John Cipollina left Quicksilver Messenger Service in 1971, he formed Copperhead with Jim Murray and Casey Sonoban (two members of the first Quicksilver line-up), his brother Mario (who later found fame with Huey Lewis and The News) and various other musicians. Their frequent rehearsals and gigs didn't allow them to get a recording contract and in 1972 Cipollina assembled a new line-up with Gary Philippet (ex-Front Line), Jim McPherson (ex-Stained Glass), David Weber and Hutch Hutchinson. A record, Sealed For Your Protection, was ready to be released on Just Sunshine Record but was eventually shelved. Finally Copperhead was issued by CBS in 1973 and is a superb example of San Francisco Sound, with seven original tracks and a new version of Kibitzer, already recorded by McPherson with Stained Glass. A must for fans of Quicksilver and Cipollina's guitar.

Originally organized as the trio backing Johnny Kidd, this band continued working long after the latter's death in a mid-'60s automobile accident. Behind lead guitarist Mick Green, who has played with just about everybody over the years (including Paul McCartney's Choba B CCCP and Run Devil Run), they embraced their punk roots in the late '70s and early '80s and still do a great show, even without a "real" lead singer.

Cactus - One Way... or Another (1971) (Remaster Edit 2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One Way... Or Another (1971) was the second and final studio outing to feature the incipient incarnation of supergroup Cactus, comprised of Vanilla Fudge rhythm section Carmine Appice (drums) and Tim Bogert (bass), as well as former Amboy Dukes lead vocalist Rusty Day (vocals/mouth harp), and Jim McCarty (guitar) from Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels and the Buddy Miles Express. Even as their debut was ostensibly rawer, they retained the same amp'ed-up electric blues reminiscent of early Grand Funk Railroad and Foghat.
The more polished outcome heard on their sophomore effort is undoubtedly the direct result of assistance from recording engineer extraordinaire Eddie Kramer and their upgraded digs at the recently completed Electric Lady Studios, which they inhabited shortly after the passing of the facilities' owner, Jimi Hendrix. Immediately, the proceedings are thrust into high gear with a languorous and seething interpretation of Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally." While not the extended barnburner it became in concert, it gets things off to a rousing start.
The lightweight up-tempo "Rockout, Whatever You Feel Like" could easily be mistaken for Jo Jo Gunne, especially in Day's vocal asides, strongly recalling Jay Ferguson and company. "Rock 'N' Roll Children" is a heavier number with McCarty unleashing rounds of impressive and impellent fretwork churning atop the simmering backbeat. Cactus do what they do best, returning to their boogie rock roots on the suitably named "Big Mama Boogie — Parts 1 & 2." McCarty's pumping acoustic opening is perfectly augmented by some organic mouth harp courtesy of Day before launching into an explosive assault of pure, unadulterated proto- metal. The cover of Chuck Willis' "Feel So Bad" is given a sizable shakedown, yet doesn't quite seem to live up to its potential.
The opposite can be said of the understated "Song for Aries." Although clocking in at just under three minutes, the instrumental is a showcase for McCarty's immorally underrated lead guitar. The long-player concludes with two full-blown centerpieces, revealing Cactus' strength as a formidable powerhouse combo on the autobiographically-inspired rave-up "Hometown Bust." Fittingly, this lineup and album come to an end on a high note with the title track "One Way...Or Another." The number is quite possibly the finest original to have been worked up by the band. The cut blazes from tip-to-tail and if the primary riff seems familiar, that may be because it was lifted almost verbatim from Jeff Beck's Beck-Ola-era tune "Rice Pudding." However in Cactus' care, it stomps with a bit more crunch and no-nonsense attitude. ..Pepe Pannzer

Rufus Zuphall - Weiss der Teufel (1972) (Remaster Edit 1992)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rufus Zuphall is one of the significant German rock bands of the early seventies. This first CD, part of a series of three CDs, describes their musical development - beyond the first LP thro' to the farewell concert in 72. With this - the "complete work" of Rufus Zuphall is available for the first time on CD. Formed in Aachen in 1969 and initially with a keyboard player as fifth man, the band melted together blues elements, the ease of Anglo-Saxon folk, classical influences and driving guitar rock with progressive song structures into an autonomous instrumental dominated style and live programme. The titles "Hollis Brown" and "Granum Cerebri" from forthcoming third CD "Avalon And On" are from this period. In the beginning the band was not so Germany-orientated but more towards the neighbouring countries Belgium and particularly Holland and their breakthrough came accordingly in 1970 in front of a 30.000 crowd at the Jazz Festival in Bilzen (Belgium). Actually planned as a sideshow, they then played as the only amateur band next to such stars as Black Sabbath, Cat Stevens or May Blitz and were celebrated by the press as "surprise of the festival". Previously Rufus Zuphall had even appeared with Living Blues and Cuby and the Blizzards, in the same year this was followed by gigs with Curtis Jones, Group 1850 and Golden Earring. The front man on stage was the flutist Klaus Gülden. He had a decisive influence on the Rufus Zuphall sound. Bass player Helmut Lieblang wrote the lyrics. Günter Krause, a creative guitar talent, composed most of the titles and with Udo Dahmen Rufus Zuphall had a drummer, who later, after his music studies, then played with Kraan, Lake, Eberhardt Schöner and Achim Reichel and is even today much asked after. He is also studio drummer and worked as a lecturer at the Hamburg College of Music. Today he is headmaster of Mannheim College of Popular Music. Apart from Udo Dahmen, the only other one of the various Rufus Zuphall members who remained true to a musical career was Günter Krause. After Rufus Zuphall had come to a close, he too studied music, he then played jazz and jazz rock in various formations - he played into the 80s as a jazz guitarist in a sextet making records. Today he's working as a musician, composer and guitar teacher.

Debuting at the "Pop & Jazz Festival" in Bilzen in Autumn 1969, Rufus Zuphall (from the Northern German town of Aachen, next to the Dutch border) had a lot of influences at play in their music: Teutonic folk, Dutch psychedelia, a notable nod to Jethro Tull with much flute and dynamics, and a great deal of innovation of their own. Their self-produced debut WEISS DER TEUFEL is considered one of the underground classics of the Krautrock era, a mostly instrumental, live and vibrant excursion full of raw energy and riddled with surprises.

At the beginning of December 1970, Rufus Zuphall produced live in Holland their first LP "Weiß der Teufel" in only three days. It was released in 1971 as a private pressing on Good Will Records - a master- piece of progressive rock. The titlesong was a secret "scene hit" and the track "Spanferkel" taken from the LP became the signature tune for one of the best known German radio rock programmes. The LP, although the release was limited and despite bad marketing conditions, was a success. In spring 1971 Rufus Zuphall recorded their second LP "Phallobst" and third album "Avalon And On" was planned to release in late 1972. But it was never finished. The band disbanded in September 1972. In 1999 their was a reunion followed by a lot of gigs and the release of the CD "Colder Than Hell" in 2000. Between June and September 1972 their was a short series of 6 farewell concerts. The last was at the beginning of September in Eindhoven (Holland). The first was a concert for their fans in Aachen on June 17th 1972, in the eyes of the band one of the true musical highlights of Rufus Zuphall. Here is dynamism, creativity and enthusiasm to be heard, one can feel the stage experience and intimacy of a group that despite all other activities in 1971 alone managed to make over 50 appearances. "Farewell Live Aachen 72", as bonus tracks split on this and the following "Phallobst"-CD, shows the musical range of Rufus Zuphall, the full bounds of Rhythm'n Blues - inspired beginnings with songs like "Wade In The Water" or "See See Rider" thro' to rockers like "Prickel Pit" or progressive titles like "Avalon Suite", it shows classical influences, free song structures with jazz elements and includes with "Summertime" or "Spanferkel" fundamental group hits.

Missus Beastly - Missus Beastly (1974) (Remaster Edit 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After a two years rest, MB reconvened through a few gigs and chance meetings and the line-up was sensibly different with only drummer Oldemeier and flutist/saxman Benz (who had not recorded on their first Lp) left, but with Missing Link keyboardist Miekausch and bassist/guitarist Dömling and other wind instrumentalist Josch. Graced with a rather tasteless banana-gorilla artwork, this album would turn out rather differently to MB’s previous incarnation’s sole release but was recorded at the inevitable Dieter Dierks’ studio. Out of the silence come jungle beats soon joined by a jazzy flute and cool electric piano over a funky bass, and the tone is set: MB was definitely up-to-date and very jazzy, reminding McCoy Tyner’s piano works (as Coltrane’s great ex-sideman was also hanging around in Germany, recording his best albums), but coming to a very abrupt end. The follow-up is starting just as abruptly, bringing you back a bit where the opening track had left things at. Obviously the two saxmen/flauters were often taking up after Miekausch’s piano, Coltrane is never far away, but the album is resolutely rock- funk in spirit as evident with Geisha. The next track Vacuum Cleaner Dance and Paranoidl are definitely more fusion-like approaching Weather Report or RTF. A steady bass beat is slowly overtaken by a twirling piano first than a synth, on what is (IMHO) the album’s centrepiece Fly Away before heading towards Brand X-type of fusion before veering Trane-like. The closing Talle (after the village where they rehearsed) is an excellent calm mid-tempo track where Dömling’s guitar is finally heard, dubbed over his funky bass line.
The GOD reissue (avoid the Germanophone bootleg) comes with four bonus tracks, three of which were live in 74 and the fourth from 75, with Free Clinic announcing the colours but is thankfully not veering into atonal improvs but ending at bit shoddily. On the whole, those bonus track present a different facet of the band, but if clearly not linked to the original album, the contrast being evident), they do not shock the listener much and it would be unfair to say the hinder the album’s rating.
With the controversial artwork dispute leading the band onto another label, and Miekausch re-joining Embryo, MB would record a few more albums with an ever- changing line-up. In the meantime, this album is one brilliant example of the day’s JR/F and if not groundbreaking, this is typically the type of album that consolidated the broken ground. Excellent and much worth the spin.

Paul Weller - Wild Wood(1993) (Remaster Edit 2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This deluxe edition of what i personally consider to be Wellers finest moment is a welcome reissue and one which should have been done before the previous deluxe Stanley Road.
Weller and band were straight off the road and into the studio , many of these numbers were already being played live and were well known to most fans. The opening Sunflower is full of passion Wellers voice almost screaming for lost love through the simple acoustic pastoral style of the blindingly fantastic Country to the power house of Has My Fire Really gone Out this album is one classic after another. The sound is verymore… live and the acoustic material intimate , Weller even gives a nod to some freaky hip hop dub fillers inbetween the tracks it is one hell of an album, full of passion and fire , Weller never sounding better. His touch is light the mood jubulant and it comes through in this sunlight tinged masterpiece.
Weller honed this summer feel perfectly with the next album if albums were seasons this was spring , next came the summer till the stripped live sound became a bleak Heavy Soul the autumn and winter in one.
The extras on offer here are truly rare indeed im a keen collector and have non of the demos on show here have appeared on bootlegs etc . The first listen is like an alternative version of the album . Most of the core songs are there and many are more arranged and complex than the finished article , if anything show Wellers less is more attitude with the band being slowly stripped away. The B sides are nice to have in one package and the radio sessions are solo acoustic affairs and nice to hear again. It would have been nice to have some visual material he did auditioned a couple of songs on Jools Holland at the time and did blistering versions of Sunflower and Has My fire really gone. Also a big omission is the alternative jap release versions of Weaver and Pictures on the Wall from the Jap release , these were different takes to the uk release (even many hardcore collectors do not realise this so worth a buy if you can find it?) Apart from this it a superb purchase and well worth a double (or in my case quadruple) dip. Even if you don;t like Weller much this album will appeal...Pepe Panzer

Status Quo - Quo (1974) (Remaster Edit 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This album was originally released in the early 70's 2 or 3 albums into their heavier denim era. It often seems to get over looked in favour of the more popular Hello or Piledriver albums but in my opinion, this is the best of all of their early albums.It starts off with the unmistakable Backwater. Sung by bassist Alan Lancaster, this is a fantastic blues rock song with a great story line and driving rhythm. It has the trademark 12 bar riffage, but played with a real passion that was certainly missing during their 80's stuff. The mix into Just Take Me sees drummer John Coghlan at his absolutemore… best. Muso's quite rightly discuss the values of John Bonham, Cozy Powell and Ian Paice but guys, Coghlan is right up there with them. Just listen to the way he mixes power with feel on Just Take Me and the way he leads the time changes during Slow Train, not to mention the great drum solo...the most underated rock drummer from that era!!Break the rules is an absolute classic, again blues rock at its best with Rossi in story telling mode. After the brilliant Drifting Away, which again sees Lancaster at the mic, Don't Think It Matters, Fine Fine Fine and Lonely man are great album tracks leading into the afore mentioned Slow Train.It really bugs me when lazy writers churn out the "3 chords" stereotype thing, because Slow Train is a classic piece of 70's rock...great riffs, time changes, story telling, jigs, drum solo's, heavy rock, the works. You just have to turn the damn stereo up, batter your eardrums up some more and nod ya head, because this is rock music at its best!!The addition of Lonely night on this re-mastered version is a welcome treat, nice finisher.This is the classic Quo line up of Rossi, Parfitt, Lancaster and Coghlan at their peak. In this early era, Rossi and Parfitt used a much heavier guitar style, and put together some very original and complicated guitar pieces. There was a real magic when they concentrated on their playing, leaving Lancaster to the vocals, backed up by Coghlans thunderous drumming that was only really present on this album.So, do yourself a favour, buy this cd, turn it up and I promise you...if you have any rock n roll blood in you, it will blow you away. Fantastic...Rainer Zuphall

Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Face to Face (1977) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So you've already been hooked by the great mans insight into love, life, death and all things dark and light that can swirl your world. This album give you probably your best insight into the essence of Steve Harley and what he wanted (wants) to achieve. His creative drive takes the live perfromances of your favorite songs to new places. Haunting and raw you find things like "Seeking a love", disarming interaction with the crowd has you singing "Best years...", "Tumbling Down" makes you feel you're there, "Mad Mad Moonlight" will put you at the party & "Love compared with you" is still my favoritemore… expression of love in music and here it is powerful in its simplicity . This album is beautifully paced and reflects the depth and width of the music of Steve Harley.Of course you'll find "Make me smile", "Here comes the sun" et al, but this album is about turning thoughtful and provocative music into thoughtful and provocative entertainment.... and for me Steve Harley had (has) the talent to do it. This album the proof.

City - Am Fenster (Platin Edition) (1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

City is a German rock band, formed in East Berlin in 1972, best known for the song “Am Fenster” (At The Window) from its 1978 first album. The band was founded as the City Band Berlin by Fritz Puppel (guitar), Klaus Selmke (drums), Ingo Doering (bass guitar), Klaus Witte (keyboards), Frank Pfeiffer (vocals) and Andreas Pieper (flute). The lineup changed frequently in the band’s early years, but stabilized by 1976, with Puppel and Selmke joined by Bulgarian violinist and bassist Georgi Gogow and vocalist-keyboardist Toni Krahl. They changed their name to City Rock Band and eventually to simply City. City toured extensively in East Germany, and was given the opportunity to record an album in 1978. The eponymous City showcased the band’s guitar-driven rock; several songs are parables, such as “Der King vom Prenzlauer Berg” (The King Of Prenzlauer Berg), about a young man who gets into too many fights; and “Meister aller Klassen” (Masters Of All Classes”), about cocky otorcyclists whose desire for speed ends in tragedy. The band’s greatest commercial success, however, was the atypical folk rock-influenced “Am Fenster” (At the Window), which arose from a jam session in the studio when Gogow began to play on his violin. It eventually coalesced into a three-part, 17-minute piece (as well as a four-minute version for radio play). An immediate hit in East Germany, it also became successful in West Germany and was an enormous success in countries such as Greece. Following the song’s success, City sold half a million copies.

Culture Club - Greatest Moments -2CD (Limited Edition) (1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fronted by the flamboyant Boy George, Culture Club was one of the super groups of the 1980s, and Greatest Moments charts the group's defining compositions, as well as a selection of George's solo hits. When the group first arrived on the UK charts in 1982 with their number one debut "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?", Boy George's androgynous image threatened to undermine the group's musical potential. However, as Greatest Moments highlights, Culture Club have always been much more than eye shadow and hair extensions: their songs are a unique mixture of George's husky tones, reggae beats, and orchestralmore… melodies. Twelve years after their split, the group reformed in 1998 to tour and to record new material. Greatest Moments includes the first single to be released after their reunion, "Just Wanna Be Loved".

Cars - Just What I Needed, The Cars Anthology (2 CD) (1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Line up

Ric Ocasek – vocals, rhythm guitar
Benjamin Orr – vocals, bass guitar
Elliot Easton – lead guitar
Greg Hawkes – keyboards, percussion, sax
David Robinson – drums, percussion

Despite musical roots that branched from the Velvets to Steely Dan and the likes of then new wave icons Roxy Music, the Cars never strayed far from the crucial, hook-conscious, three-minute pop song sensibility which made them one of the most successful and long-lived radio staples of the '70s and '80s. The hit singles and select album cuts stretch from their improbably rich debut through moodier efforts like "Panorama" and the vibrant, yet satisfying "Shake It Up" and "Heartbeat City". The CD is well seasoned by a cache of previously unreleased demos, B-sides, and outtakes. The earliest of these ('77 demos of "Take Me Now" and "Cool Fool") demonstrate that the band's sound was intact before they met their first multiplatinum producer, while later rarities (playful covers of Iggy's "Fun Time" and the Nightcrawlers' "Little Black Egg") underscore their eclectic, seemingly incongruous tastes. Devoted fans will want the entire discography, and those with a casual interest in the group will be satisfied with "Complete Greatest Hits", but this box set covers the ground in between, and makes a case for the Cars as one of the best bands of their time.

Steve Miller Band - Young Hearts: Complete Greatest Hits (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Subtitled - Complete Greatest Hits. Finally, a Steve Miller best-of with 'Livin' in the USA', 'Abracadabra!', 'The Joker', 'Jungle Love' & much more. 25 remastered cuts covering his 35 years with Capitol all on two CD!

At his best, Steve Miller offered great rock & roll thrills -- sleek, insidiously catchy, relentlessly propulsive, effervescent pop gems, songs that were possessed with their own cheerful momentum that proved irresistible and surprisingly enduring. At his best, he made rock & roll that evoked its time but transcended it since its song and studiocraft were precisely executed, and never running longer than needed; like all perfect pop or rock singles, they sound too short since you'd want them to last forever. Unfortunately, Miller at his very best is ten, maybe 12 (and if you're kind, maybe 14) songs, much shorter than the generous Complete Greatest Hits, which clocks in at 22 tracks. Strangely enough, that title is a bit disingenuous, since this does not contain all of Miller's charting singles, which, strangely enough, clock in at 20 tracks, if all the Billboard charts are used as a guideline. Of those 20 singles, a whole bunch are missing: "Your Cash Ain't Nothin' but Trash," "Going to the Country," "Heart Like a Wheel," "Circle of Love," "Give It Up," "Shangri-La," "Bongo Bongo," "Nobody but You Baby," and "Cool Magic." That's nine songs, nearly half of his charting singles. Then again, charting singles don't really tell the story of Miller and his band, since they were more popular on album-oriented radio than they were on the charts, which is why songs like "Space Cowboy," "Wild Mountain Honey," and "Dance Dance Dance" are better known than "Bongo Bongo." Nevertheless, if the compilers of this compilation were going to take its title seriously, these songs would be present (even if Miller seems to have disowned 1981's Circle of Love, since it's out of print and none of its singles are here), along with the cuts that remain staples of AOR to this day. Instead, it's a bit of a hodgepodge, containing all but three tracks from the classic Greatest Hits 1974-1978, plus the three other songs every listener wants: "Abracadabra," "Livin' in the U.S.A.," and "Space Cowboy." If those three tracks were substituted for those missing from Greatest Hits 1974-1978, this wouldn't be just the great Miller album; it would be one of the great rock guilty pleasures, the kind of records everybody would own but all serious rock geeks would be ashamed to have, even if they play it far more than Trout Mask Replica. But this collection meanders, adding a bunch of latter-day songs that are largely unknown. Some of them are good -- 1993's "Wide River," if given a better production, could be mistaken for the Steve Miller Band at its peak -- but by and large, they slow this record down more than necessary. What makes this recommended -- and, make no mistake, it is -- is that it contains that core 12 to 14 songs that would make for one of the great rock albums. What keeps it from essential is the eight to ten songs that surround them, particularly since this starts off so strong, and then peters out, saving "Dance Dance Dance" for a last hurrah. Even so, this is the only place to go for all of Miller's hits (not counting the 1999 Australia collection, which has a similar feel but a slightly sharper track selection and a little leaner 20-track running time). But keep this in mind: if you want a party, you want Greatest Hits 1974-1978, since the feel and the groove is the same, and it clocks in at 14 tracks and 47 minutes -- perfect length for repeated plays. At the end of the exhaustive Complete Greatest Hits you're pretty much exhausted -- glad you have the key songs in your collection, wishing that the disc itself was as sleek and irresistible as the best tunes here...S.

Steve Miller Band - Live From Chicago (DVD Rip 2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With almost 40 years of history and hits behind them, Steve Miller Band has churned out some of the greatest and most memorable anthems of their generation. Songs like "Fly Like An Eagle", "Rockin' Me" and "Take The Money And Run" still sound fresh today and continue to turn young fans on to the magic of the band's sound. One look at the audience that attended the band's two sold-out nights at Chicago's famed Ravinia, and it becomes clear that this is a group that continues to develop an ardent fan base while drawing long-time fans eager to hear their favorites time and time again. Steve Miller Band is as vital today as ever. This disc is the ultimate addition to any Steve Miller Band fan's...Rudi Rondo

Grateful Dead - Blues For Allah (1975) (Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The last time the Dead ever had the courage to really experiment was this on album, the fruit of their year-long hiatus from touring. It has a particular jazz-rock feel characterised by the fertile mix of effects pedals from Garcia meeting some memorable electric piano from Keith Godchaux. The album is self-confident, tender, funny, and sparkles in a very un-Dead-like way. A lot of it is laughing music.Stand-out tracks are the lithe Franklin's tower, the melancholy Crazy Fingers - with Garcia's best ever recorded solo, a beautiful unstated Zen sequence to really contemplate - and the longmore…, atmospheric Blues for Allah. The album, of course, got lost pretty quickly. it was never a commercial smash and the Dead never cut quite such intelligent music again. But, for once, in some mysterious way, they seemed ahead of the pack, not a plodding note in sight (or sound). This is vital...Rudy Rondo

Vanilla Fudge - The Beat Goes On (1968) (Remaster Edit 1998)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sundazed Music remastered reissue of their 1st album with the original cover art intact, plus updated liner notes and 2 bonus tracks added, 'Come By Day, Come By Night' and a previously unreleased cover of the Lennon/ McCartney tune 'You Can't Do That'. This heavy psychedelic group featured drummer Carmine Appice and bassist Tim Bogert.

There aren't any real "songs" on this album; rather, it's a sound collage featuring just about anything and everything to make it interesting: the voices of world leaders past and present, the band reciting pre-written mantras and reflections, and excerpts of songs (done "Vanilla Fudge style") by The Beatles and Sonny Bono. The group was at odds with their producer George "Shadow" Morton during this album's recording sessions, as Morton made his own concept album without significant input from the band. In the liner notes to the Sundazed Records 1990's CD reissue of the album, the band denounces it as a failed experiment on their producer's part. Vanilla Fudge's third album Renaissance, which was released quickly after The Beat Goes On, would be Morton's last collaboration with the band. While not as successful as their debut album, The Beat Goes On was a moderate hit despite the band's reservations, peaking at #17 on the Billboard album charts in March 1968...Rainer Zuphall

Rory Gallagher - BBC Sessions (2CD Remaster 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The career of Irish blues guitar hero Gallagher was heavily documented by the BBC. This two-disc set is split between "in concert" and "studio" discs, featuring Rory's long-standing trio of Lou Martin (keyboards), Gerry McAvoy (bass) and Rod deAth (drums). It's the full cream, scooped up from a potential 10-hour tape-pile. The live disc displays the hurtling jernaut that was the Gallagher gig norm, blues purity retained at rock distortion levels, fingers blurred and screaming as they fly over the frets. Lou Martin excels throughout, flaying boogie piano on "Country Mile" and squeezing the organmore… hard on "Roberta". Gradually, the subversive rumbling of deAth's bass drum impacts on the frontal lobes, the first disc programmed for steady acceleration, his foot-pedal beating faster and faster, until the whole band attains the continuous crescendo that is "Used To Be". All the while, Gallagher keeps up the tonal variety, constantly arriving at unexpected solo structures, mixing aggression with imagination. The studio disc seems slightly less frenzied after this, but reveals other facets, a gentler timbre to the axe. "They Don't Make Them Like You" adopts a jazzy lounge trundle, while "Daughter Of The Everglades" is a strangely psychedelic pop song, complete with hookline chorus, cranky fairground clavinet and heavily reverb-ed guitar solo. Play very loud!...Robert Hoffnung

UFO - Walk On Water (1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As I write this is on sale for less than a fiver - if someone can come up with a better way to spend this, I'll eat my socks!
UFO have managed to avoid living on past glories or trying to keep up with trends - what they have done in recent times (starting with this album) is to continue to play the absolute best of melodic rock without feeling out of touch with their roots or their ever advancing age (they've been around for more than 30 years) - like some of us of advancing years, they seem to be able to recognise that you can be contemporary without having to be trendy.
There are some referencesmore… to the past - the remakes of Lights Out and Doctor,Doctor are there I think to link new listeners to their past, but if you are a first time listener, ignore these and instead enjoy what is probably one of the best comeback albums of all time - when you put this album up against modern rock albums, you can see how hard it is for new acts to beat the past masters - any modern rock album has to reference UFO in one way or another, as these guys are on top of their game here, combining meaningful lyrics (listen to Pushed to the Limit if you want to know what being middle aged feels like) with guitar work of the highest level thanks to Mr Moody himself, Michael Schenker.
If you are under 30 and into modern rock oriented music, then risk a fiver and enjoy a dip into the past - if you are over 30 and remember bands like Thin Lizzy but haven't listened to UFO before, then sacrifice a pint and buy this instead - you won't regret it...Rudi Rondo

Grateful Dead - Reckoning (1981) (2 Disc Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lovingly remastered and gloriously expanded to include an extra discs worth of music this re-release from Rhino is truly a wonderful treasure featuring The Dead playing "unpled" from their legendary 1980 gigs at the Warfield in Frisco and Radio City in NYC. If you love the Dead then you need this album as it showcases their folk roots superbly and reinterprets some classic Dead originals like Cassidy, China Doll and Bird Song with an intimacy that is heartwarming and with a great depth to the sound that lets you hear ever note. Featuring old blues chesnuts like Rosalie McFall, Deep Elem Bluesmore…, folk gems like Tom Dooley, Jack-A-Roe and a rare performance of Bob Weir's Sage and Spirit this is an album that will reward with repeating listenings so sit back around the campfire and let the Dead sing your Blues away. My only gripe is that it features alternate takes of ten songs already on the original release so it would have been nice to hear some of the other songs the Dead played from the tour, but nonetheless it's a must have for Dead Heads or any fan of acoustic/folk/roots/rock...

Pat Benatar - GO (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pat Benatar practically invented female empowerment in rock, so it's a good to see she is back with her 17th album. Produced by her guitarist husband Neil Giraldo, Go shows that Benatar hasn't lost any of her swagger or punch. She's still the mistress of the emotional watershed as she pinpoints the precise moment when a long-suffering protagonist implodes and decides she will no longer be a victim of love. The kinetic and lyrical power released during those exchanges is still staggering, and songs like "I Won't" and "Go" visit the same teeth-gnashing terrain as "Love is a Battlefield," and "Hit Me with Your Best Shot." The only times she stumbles out of her stilettos is when she shows a softer side on the regretful "Sorry," which finds her splendidly ragged voice drowned in a sea of limpid Spanish guitars, and the Motown-esque "Please Don't Leave Me." But for most of the disc, Benatar is a hard-glittering rock gem who still can rage with the best of them...Rydy Rathlos

King Crimson - USA: 30. Anniversary Edition 1975 (2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The original "USA" on Island records was never released on CD during the early 1980's and subsequently, as were all the other Crimson back catalogue albums, except "Earthbound" (thank God out now) & "A Young Persons Guide to King Crimson" (when, Robert, when???). This always seemed to me such a waste and a short-sighted approach, as the "USA" album displayed the definitive band (Cross, Fripp, Wetton, Bruford) at the height of their strength and depth. This album has moments of genius, raw power and exquisite, piercing beauty. The opening of "No Pussyfooting" into "Larks Tongues II" cannot failmore… to lift even the most lethargic listener into rocking along with the beat and tapping anything they can lay their hands on; Cross's violin and Wetton's voice on "Lament" have a haunting quality when offset by Fripps guitar in such a powerful way I wonder why electric and acoustic ever parted company; and, the inventive pulse of "Asbury Park" shows off Bruford's mastery perfectly. However, prepare to be humbled by Fripp's wonderful sustained riffs during the second, instrumental part of "Easy Money". It has to be the best track he ever recorded. It is beauty and pain beyond belief to listen to it. You have to hear it LOUD...and you have to be prepared to cry. Fripp's playing is exquisite. I can think of no better live Crimson album before or since...for my money the best live album ever made, even if the recording quality prevented the record company from putting it out sooner. This is the real, definitive band. Nothing else comes close!

Edgar Broughton Band - The Edgar Broughton Band (1971)(Remaster Edit 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The most conventional of the Edgar Broughton Band's first (and best) three albums, 1971's Edgar Broughton Band finds the group dispensing with the no-holds-barred mania and theatricality responsible for such classics as "Out Demons Out," "Up Yours," and "Apache Drop Out" and concentrating instead on more musical endeavors. It's an approach that arguably captures the band at their very best at the same time as revealing them at their ugliest. The two-part epic "For Dr. Spock" conjures images of Gong, as it drifts closer to space rock than the Edgar Broughton Band had hitherto ventured, while "Housemore… of Turnabout" certainly restates the group's free-freak credentials with its rumbling percussion and scything guitars, a second cousin to the roars that punctuated Wasa Wasa and Sing Brother Sing. The heart of Edgar Broughton Band, however, lies elsewhere. The lilting chant "Thinking About You," with its spectral reminders of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero," is certainly one of their most rancorous concoctions, while "Evening Over Rooftops" rides an acoustic guitar as pretty as its flowery lyric, but you know there's something rotten squirming just below the surface, even if you can never quite put your finger on it. The pure pop backing vocals, all "sha-la-la" and "doo-be-doo-be-doo," of course, only add to your unease. And, as that is merely the opening number, you can guess what you're in for over the rest of the album long before you actually get it...Kuno Freytag

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Mardi Gras (1972)(Remaster Edit 2000)

Creedence Clearwater Revival had been worn down to a trio by the time they released their final album."Mardi Gras" brings together three Fogerty songs, three songs by bassist Stu Cook, two by drummer Doug Clifford, one colleboration by Clifford and Cook, and a cover of Gene Pitney's "Hello Mary Lou". Doug Clifford and Stu Cook claim that John Fogerty needed time to creatively recharge, while Fogerty says he simply bowed to their relentless pressure for equal time, but either way the result remains the same: "Mardi Gras" is by far the group's weakest effort.The two Fogerty-penned singles are bothmore… fine songs, the hard rock of "Sweet Hitch-Hiker" and the great, soulful "Someday Never Conmes". And his folkish, acoustic "Lookin' For A Reason", which reads suspiciously like a comment upon the state of the band, is a great song as well. And that's about it. Cook and Clifford contribute one or two fairly good numbers each, and they perform the lead vocals themselves, but nothing matches even the weakest of John Fogerty's songs.If Doug Clifford and Stu Cook had performed these songs in a band of their own, rather than under the Creedence name, it would be easier to be charitable, but when held up against Creedence Clearwater Revival's other work, "Mardi Gras" stands as an unpretty end to a great band...Pepe panzer

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Creedence Clearwater (1968)(Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Popular but not hip, basic but not shallow, rooted but not retro, Creedence Clearwater Revival distinguished themselves in the late 1960s and early 1970s through these contradictions. This six-disc set is the definitive Creedence collection, offering superbly remastered versions of all of their studio and live albums and adding a disc's worth of pre-Creedence material. The ultimate blue-collar rock band, John Fogerty and CCR found success by wholly giving in to their fascination with the American South (despite hailing from Northern California) and exploring the turf that connected R&B and countrymore…--the same turf that their heroes at Sun studios tilled at rock's birth. As the songs on the first disc prove, they hadn't always taken this approach though perhaps they should have: The first four songs from 1961 (by Tommy Fogerty and the Blue Velvets), original compositions in the classic '50s rock & roll style they loved, hold up better than subsequent Golliwogs tracks that attempt to replicate the British Invasion sound in vogue at the time. Still, the Golliwogs tracks offer hints of John Fogerty's menacing growl and biting guitar that would fully blossom later on. When diving into CCR's entire body of work, many myths dissipate and a more well-rounded view comes into focus: the quintessential singles band that dominated AM radio was also quite an album band, releasing solid records from top to bottom even though half of the songs were saturating radio long before the LP would hit. Also, they weren't quite as far removed from their Bay Area brethren (who were reared on the same roots music) as is often stated, offering a number of long and loose jams that, while not overtly psychedelic, gave them and their fans a chance to stretch out. Without question, though, CCR were the kings of the three-minute rock single, and it's these now-ubiquitous gems--the consummate AM band now dominates FM radio--that will always define them...Rainer Zuphall

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic (1975)(30th Anniversary Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thx to thor's (hammer)

King Crimson reborn yet again — the newly configured band makes its debut with a violin (courtesy of David Cross) sharing center stage with Robert Fripp's guitars and his Mellotron, which is pushed into the background. The music is the most experimental of Fripp's career up to this time — though some of it actually dated (in embryonic form) back to the tail end of the Boz Burrell-Ian Wallace-Mel Collins lineup. And John Wetton was the group's strongest singer/bassist since Greg Lake's departure three years earlier. What's more, this lineup quickly established itself as a powerful performing unit working in a more purely experimental, less jazz-oriented vein than its immediate predecessor. "Outer Limits music" was how one reviewer referred to it, mixing Cross' demonic fiddling with shrieking electronics, Bill Bruford's astounding dexterity at the drum kit, Jamie Muir's melodic and usually understated percussion, Wetton's thundering (yet melodic) bass, and Fripp's guitar, which generated sounds ranging from traditional classical and soft pop-jazz licks to hair-curling electric flourishes. [The remastered edition, which appeared in the summer of 2000 in Europe and slightly later in America, features beautifully remastered sound — among other advantages, it moves the finger cymbals opening the first section of the title track into sharp focus, with minimal hiss or noise to obscure them, exposes the multiple percussion instruments used on the opening of "Easy Money," and gives far more clarity to "The Talking Drum." This version is superior to any prior CD release of Larks' Tongues in Aspic, and contains a booklet reprinting period press clippings, session information, and production background on the album.] ..Bob Hope

Grateful Dead - Live Dead (1969) (Remaster Edit 2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

LIVE DEAD was the first 16-track on-location recording.

Includes 2 untitled hidden tracks following "And We Bid You Goodnight."

Recorded live at The Fillmore West and the Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco, California in 1969. Originally released on November 10, 1969.

Among the finest of rock's live documents, LIVE DEAD is a snapshot of the Grateful Dead circa 1969, applying the free-jazz lessons of John Coltrane to their finely-tuned, manic, and flowing boogie. It was the first released piece of evidence that the live Dead were a wholly different, multi-headed animal than the one that recorded in the studio. LIVE DEAD was also the culmination of the group's evolution into what's now considered the vintage San Francisco sound--having perfected it, the Grateful Dead would soon leave it for fresher musical pastures.
While each of LIVE DEAD's selections calls to mind a specific trick from up the band's sleeve, the opening four songs (later dubbed "the holy quartet" by Deadheads) best indicates the Dead's burning trajectory. "Dark Star" lays out a wide-open musical terrain, allowing the band to leap anywhere from its minimalist-riff launching pad and its two verses of T.S. Eliot-inspired psychedelic prose. Here, it is a dark-hued and majestic sea of ambience and intensity. "St. Stephen" explodes like a shiny metallic cloud-burst, Bob Weir's fervent vocals carrying it like a holy torch. "The Eleven," a thunderous fury of a composition based on "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" and played in 11/4 time, continues the rumbling. By the time Pigpen ends the continuous sermon with a raucous sci-fi-R&B take on Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Turn On Your Lovelight," the Dead have seemingly sailed every corner of their musical universe and crash-landed with aplomb...Dhar Jellinc
-------------------------------------------
The Grateful Dead's fourth title was likewise their first extended concert recording. Spread over two LPs, Live/Dead (1969) finally was able to relay the intrinsic sonic magnificence of a Dead show in real time. Additionally, it unleashed several key entries into their repertoire, including the sidelong epic and Deadhead anthem"Dark Star" as well as wailing and otherwise electrified acidic covers of the Rev. Gary Davis blues standard "Death Don't Have No Mercy" and the R&B rave-up "(Turn on Your) Lovelight." Finally, the conundrum of how to bring a lengthy performance experience to the listener has been solved. The album's four sides provided the palette from which to replicate the natural ebb and flow of a typical Dead set circa early 1969. Tomes have been written about the profound impact of "Dark Star" on the Dead and their audience. It also became a cultural touchstone signifying that rock music was becoming increasingly experimental by casting aside the once-accepted demands of the short, self-contained pop song. This version was recorded on February 27, 1969, at the Fillmore West and is presented pretty much the way it went down at the show. The same is true of the seven remaining titles on Live/Dead. The rousing rendition of "St. Stephen" reinvents the Aoxomoxoa (1968) prototype with rip-roaring thunder and an extended ending which slams into an instrumental rhythmic excursion titled "The Eleven" after the jam's tricky time signature. The second LP began with a marathon cover of "(Turn on Your) Lovelight," which had significant success for both Bobby "Blue" Bland and Gene Chandler earlier in the decade. With Ron "Pigpen" McKernan at the throttle, the Dead barrel their way through the work, reproportioning and appointing it with fiery solos from Garcia and lead vocal raps courtesy of McKernan. "Death Don't Have No Mercy" is a languid noir interpretation of Rev. Gary Davis' distinct Piedmont blues. Garcia's fretwork smolders as his solos sear through the melody. Likewise notable is the criminally underrated keyboard work of Tom Constanten, whose airy counterpoint rises like a departing spirit from within the soul of the song. The final pairing of "Feedback" — which is what is sounds like it might be — with the "lowering down" funeral dirge "And We Bid You Goodnight" is true to the way that the band concluded a majority of their performances circa 1968-1969. They all join in on an a cappella derivative of Joseph Spence and the Pinder Family's traditional Bahamian distillation. Few recordings have ever represented the essence of an artist in performance as faithfully as Live/Dead. It has become an aural snapshot of this zenith in the Grateful Dead's 30-year evolution and as such is highly recommended for all manner of enthusiasts. The 2001 remastered edition that was included in the Golden Road (1965-1973) (2001) box set tacks on the 45 rpm studio version of "Dark Star" as well as a vintage radio advert for the album...Roco Granata
-------------------------------------------
And possibly the best album ever. Admittedly i am a deadhead through and through, but honestly, Darkstar is the most transportative piece of music i've ever heard. I've heard - and love - Miles, Coltrane, Allmans, Mahavishnu, Cream and a whole whost of others, but this album is the group mind as one like never before. Maybe they didn't have the chops the same way McGlaughlin did, but the telepathy between Jerry, Phil, Bobby, Billy, Mickey, Pig and TC is out of site. That's not to say these guys weren't virtuosos, but it's not about the fact that they can play in awkward time signatures, but thatmore… they do so with such natural beauty. The music sounds like it is being born right there at that moment in time (i'm far too young - and english - to have been there) and it's one moment sub-aqua - god bless phil for that - the next "rolling thunder" with Jerry's peals and lightning strikes slicing through the bulbous maelstrom. This is the most organic music ever made, yet paradoxically it sounds like the furthest reaches of space. Utterly remarkable. It has sincerely changed my life...Manfred Mandel

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Skynyrd's First (Remaster Edit 1998)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It doesn't matter what you think you know about Lynyrd Skynyrd.
It doesn't matter what you think you know about Southern Rock.
It doesn't matter what you think you know about music at all.
You have NEVER heard anything this amazing!
Sure, the sound quality is a little lacking, and the instrumentals aren't quite as perfect as they became later, but this album is still quite possibly the greatest album ever made. If possible, I'd give it 10 stars. It deserves it. When I heard this CD for the first time, it was on my car CD player. Free Bird started and I thought that it sounded pretty good. Then Ronnie started singing. I literally had to pull my car over to the side of the road to keep from losing control and wrecking. I was so stunned by the beauty of his voice. I opened my mouth to speak, but words wouldn't come out. I gasped out loud. Then, a few seconds later, I gasped again. It actually brought tears to my eyes. I'm not embellishing. This is Ronnie before all the late nights and the drinking and the drugs. Pure, unspoiled Ronnie Van Zant. Absolutely amazing.

The rest of the band is great too. It's a raw sort of sound that really reveals a lot of Skynyrd's character. The grittiness that they made famous is expanded here and it's incredible. But I must digress, Ronnie steals the show. He was always great, but here he's really great. Imagine the most beautiful star in the night sky. Now imagine that for one brief moment, all the clouds are lifted and it shines ten times as bright. You can't take your eyes off it. That star is Ronnie and the cloudless night is this album.

And so, I ask that everyone listening to this CD to be careful. If you're going to listen to this album, make sure there's nothing around they may require your attention for awhile. You won't be able to focus on anything but the music. Your house could catch on fire, and you wouldn't even realize it. This album cannot be summarized in words. You've just got to hear it...Dhar Jellinc

Genesis - Wind & Wuthering (1976) (Remaster Edit 2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2007 digitally remastered edition of this classic from the Genesis discography featuring both a new stereo and surround sound remixes by the band and longtime producer Nick Davis. "Wind & Wuthering" features the band's first
US chart single, "Your Own Special Way", and also marked the final studio appearances of guitarist Steve Hackett who departed for greener pastures after the album's promotional tour. This edition is a 2 disc set, with the first disc being a multi-channel hybrid SACD and the second a DVD Video (NTSC format-Region 0/dts encoded/Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound). The DVD also features an interview with the band members as well as promotional videos and other special historical content.

On this 1976 album, the group's second after Phil Collins took over lead vocal duties from Peter Gabriel, Genesis continues to make art-rock that's both accessible and emotional, if less overly quirky than with the Gabriel-fronted lineup. The extended epics "Eleventh Earl of Mar" and "One for the Vine" showcase the group's still-sharp progressive instincts, while "Wot Gorilla?" and "All in a Mouse's Night" demonstrate a gently eccentric sense of humor. Meanwhile, the lilting love song "Your Own Special Way" presages the string of romantic ballads that would soon make Genesis a world-class hitmore… machine. --Scott Schinder

Silberbart - 4 Times Sound Razing (1971) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The German scene in the early 70s had loads of unique bands to come up with. Silverbart is a great example. A incredible german 3 piece band that recorded this album in 1971 and this is a smash hit. Rated today as one of the most ultimate German heavyrock releases ever. Silverbart had a unique sound a wild brutal guitarwork, the production is amazing and the band comes out like a hurricane on this release. Philips in Germany released the album and the cover artwork is something spectacular too. Made by a artist called Witt and it shows a pic of Santa Claus formed as a candle, it's a great cover. It is only 4 tracks on the album 3 of them is 16, 10 and 12 minutes long and especially "Brain brain" and "Head tear of the drunken sun" is really hitting. I am speechless every time I play it it is so psychedelic, so progressive, so enourmously heavy so I am lost for words. One of my personal faves of the European heavy progressive 70s scene. It is as loud as Blue Cheer it is as heavy as Black Sabbath, very raw and very heavy. Buy it... A re-releases is available, you can always ask RecordHeaven if they have it...Robert Hoffnung

Traffic - On the Road - Live (1973) (1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It is hard to criticise this incredible live album negatively at all. For me one of the top progressive live albums to come out of the 70's. Remember Yessongs, Second's Out and also Ricochet by Tangerine Dream, On The Road sits proudly up there with these gems and it was a double LP release. The musicians worked brilliantly together with Reebop Kwaku Baah back in the percussive fold. Here we have "jamming" at it's absolute best. "Glad / Freedom Rider" the opener is 20 minutes of mesmerizing sound. Being live the tracks have been lengthened to accomodate for the apty titled On The Road, "Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" is another great track as is the live version of the much debated "(Sometimes I Feel So) Uninspired" but for me the highpoint is the seventeen minutes of "Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys". As I said all the instrument playing is of exceptional quality but Chris Wood's sax and flute needs a special mention too. Not an album to ignore especially if you are fond of those great 70's live albums...Rudi Rondo

I bought this album in 1973 after reading a rave review. It's still an album I play regularly. For fans of music today, 18 minute tracks must seem a little self indulgent. However, this and Birds of Fire got me into jazz. I love the musicianship and songwriting on display. I played Sometimes I Feel so Uninspired to my music teacher in 1973 and I think he was impressed - it still sounds remarkable. This is a great album...Dichter Nebel

An excellant album that will replace your greatest hits collection and album tracks to cover all tastes and keep most Journey fans reasonably happy with the songs chosen for the cd. The only fault been that they left off 'Why can't this night go on forever' which would have finished the cd off.This essential Journey will prove Journey are probably the best (underated in Britain) rock bands ever.

The Byrds - The Essential 2 CD (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Adding ringing electric guitars to Bob Dylan songs, the Byrds helped invent folk-rock, as well as becoming early proponents of psychedelia and popularising country-rock with the help of alt-country saint Gram Parsons. Led by Roger McGuinn and his distinctive Rickenbacker guitar sound, the mid-1960s line-up--also featuring David Crosby, Gene Clark, and Chris Hillman--achieved fame with their unique take on Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man". Personnel changes resulted in a core band of only McGuinn and Hillman, but the short-lived addition of Parsons allowed for the creation of the landmark SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO album. Ultimately, McGuinn assumed full control of the Byrds legacy, and their harmonies and jangly guitars have influenced countless younger bands.

Status Quo - Live - 2CD 1971 (2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

To see Status Quo at the height of their career was a privelage during the mid to late Seventies. This double CD does something that many Live albums fail to capture - it makes you feel as if you were at the concert even though you are aware that it is being played on a CD player... The set begins with a classic cover - Junior's Wailin' from the Ma Kelly's...album. Alan Lancaster's bass pumping the famous riff in the classic 'boogie woogie' style. The set continues with a number of the Quo's pre-Rockin' All Over The World greatest hits: Caroline, Roll Over Lay Down and In My Chair to namemore… but three. Francis Rossi's humerous introductions to songs are included making this a great CD for casual and obsessive Quo fans alike. Alan Lancaster once stated that he would only play songs that had a "man's bass." Lancaster would find no fault with this CD then as every track includes his trademark style. The Quo have not surpassed this album yet...perhaps they never will.

Y&T - Black Tiger (1982)(Remaster 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2005 digitally remastered edition of the second album by this San Francisco Hard Rock/Metal band under their Y&T moniker (they were previously known as Yesterday & Today). Originally released in 1982, Black Tiger was the album with which San Francisco rockers Y&T followed their astonishing Earthshaker opus and, though not quite in the same class as its predecessor, the album has much to recommend it. Tracks like 'Open Fire' and the barnstorming 'Forever' remain crowd pleasers to this day. Krescendo.

"Black tiger" from 1982 is (together with the following "Mean streak") Y&T's finest effort. After an instrumental tune/intro "From the moon" the action really begin, and "Open fire" is a typical up tempo song by Y&T, similar to "Mean streak". The material is rather diverse and there's lighter and melodic tunes like "Don't wanna lose" (a real gem!) as well as fast rockers in the shape of "Black tiger". The bass driven "Barroom boogie" gives the album character and the captivating fan favourite "Forever" gives an example of a classic Y&T formula used on previous as well as following songs. "Hell or high water" shows Y&T's ability to be slow but still groovy and heavy without ending up like Dio on "Strange highway". The closing "Winds of change" is a ballad and `tho I'm not crazy about Y&T's ballads in general it's quite good. Highly recommended!"

The Pretty Things - The BBC Sessions (1964-1975)(2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Pretty Things were really two groups. 1. The studio band who used the facilities of Abbey Road to their ultimate and produced crafted recordings the equal of The Beatles. 2. The live band who shed many of the niceties in favour of dynamics and a heavier, rockier sound.This excellent value double CD (each one is 79 minutes long) highlights much of the bands BBC session work which extended from 1964 through to 1973. Many of the songs underwent changes during the course of numerous gigs and these changes were usually for the better. The inclusion of guitarist Peter Tolson on the Parachute materialmore… also served to kick the songs onto a different harder hitting plain and also served to illustrate his wonderful and much missed guitar virtuosity.Repertoire's packaging and Mike Stax's sleeve notesd is first rate. The only grouse being the missed opportunity to hear a number of songs that were never recorded and survive still in the BBC vaults.

This collection of work from the B.B.C. Sessions gives you an overall view of the 'Pretties' career from 1964 to 1976. All the early singles are here. (The Pretty Things had a surge of popularity stateside when David Bowie covered their first two singles 'Rosalyn' and 'Don't Bring Me Down' on his album Pin Ups. To many Americans this was the first time they ever heard of the 'Pretty Things'.)
It all goes a bit pear shaped in their psychedelic era, but then it did for a lot of people (remember the Stones? Or Their Satanic Majesties Request?), but on their return to hard edged rock 'n' roll, like on the Radio One 'In Concert' show to promote 'Freeway Madness', the band is so hot, it is incendiary. Nobody can throw caution to the wind with such abandon and still nail a song down like the 'Pretties' like 'Onion Soup' and especially 'Route 66'. The live sessions for the following two albums are a little more controlled, but equally as exciting. This album is not only a good overview of the Pretty Things' career, but also a good overview of British rock in this era. If you are not familiar with the Pretty Things, this album would be an excellent way to find out...Bob Hope

Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus (1978) (2002 Remaster Edit)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Few rock concert documents can match this 1978 live album for sheer musicianship, or for its full-blooded representation of one of the best live bands ever. Little Feat's turbulent '70s pilgrimage had been studded with commercial detours when its second incarnation as a swampy, blues-rock sextet clicked musically, and these English and American dates, beautifully recorded by George Massenburg, capture the band in all its rowdy, precise glory. The late Lowell George's influence had been damped down in the studio, deferring to his bandmates' writing and singing, but Columbus is dominated by hismore… gruff, lyrical vocal presence and the mercurial tang of his indelible slide guitar. With the Tower of Power Horns aboard to inject razor-sharp horn work, this romp through the Feat songbook of southern-fried rock represents a satisfying summation of the band's best works, every bit as engaging as their studio models. This is simmering, smart music measured by an honour roll of great songs with no lapses...Bob Hope

Grand Funk Railroad - Phoenix (1972) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Having scored four consecutive Top Ten albums in the previous two years, Grand Funk Railroad may not have seemed to casual observers like a band who needed to rise phoenix-like from the ashes, but the title of the band's seventh album referred to its re-emergence after a litigious split from manager/producer Terry Knight. Now, they were producing themselves, and they added organist Craig Frost, credited here as a sideman, though he went on to join the band formally. The biggest change, however, was a musical maturity. After releasing five studio albums in a little over two years, Grand Funk waitedmore… more than a year before releasing Phoenix, and in that time they managed to come up with more variety than they had displayed before. "Someone," for example, was a surprisingly gentle ballad, and "Rain Keeps Fallin'" was stronger melodically than most of songwriter Mark Farner's previous efforts. Unlike earlier albums, Phoenix didn't seem like one rudimentary rocker after another, which made it Grand Funk's most listenable album so far. And that's not to say it didn't rock, as the leadoff instrumental, "Flight of the Phoenix," and the Top 40 hit that closed the set, "Rock 'n Roll Soul," demonstrated. Unfortunately, Farner's lyrical abilities had not increased, while his self-importance had. "I Just Gotta Know," "So You Won't Have to Die," and "Freedom Is for Children" all contained political exhortations expressed in simple-minded terms, the worst being "So You Won't Have to Die," in which Farner, later to become a Christian artist, claimed Jesus had spoken to him on the subject of overpopulation. After such cringe-inducing foolishness, the band's return to rocking with "Rock 'n Roll Soul" could only be welcomed...Robert Hoffnung

T.Rex - Zinc Alloy... (1974) (2CD Digipak Deluxe 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By late 1973, Marc Bolan's star was waning fast. No longer gunning out those effortless classics that established him as the most important figure of the decade so far, he embarked instead on a voyage of musical discovery, which cast him so far adrift from the commercial pop mainstream that when his critics said he'd blown it, he didn't even bother answering them back. Or that's the way it appeared at the time, and today, too, it must be acknowledged that 1974's Zinc Alloy & the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow is not classic Bolan, even if one overlooks the transparency of its title. After all, hadn't Bowie already done the Fictional Someone & the Somethings From Somewhere routine? Indeed he had, as his fans kept remarking at the time, and when the knives began slashing Zinc Alloy to shreds, that was one of the fiercest wounds. Time, however, has healed almost all of them. Indeed, hindsight proves that, far from losing his muse, Bolan's biggest sin was losing his once-impeccable sense of occasion. The world wasn't ready for this latest T. Rex, and the fact that it wasn't interested in the old T. Rex either is just another object lesson in the fabled fickleness of pop fans. How faulty was Bolan's timing, though? As it transpired, he was out by no more than a year, maybe less than six months. The era of disco was coming, and with it the transformation of a wealth of rocking talents. But while David Bowie was barely dreaming of young Americans' fame, and Bryan Ferry was still road testing the pharmaceutical properties of l'amour, Bolan was up to his neck in American radio, pulling out an album that exceeded his assumed capabilities no less than it shot right over the heads of the kids who once bought all his hits. "The Groover," the spring 1973 single which many regarded as the first sign of Bolan's fall from grace, marked the birth of this new fascination, a simple but solid slab of funk-inflected rock which did, indeed, groove. (The track is one of five bonus tracks appended to the album's Edsel reissue.) The yearning, heavily orchestrated hit "Teenage Dream" hit notwithstanding, the heart of Zinc Alloy, then, simply followed in "The Groover"'s footsteps, an abandoned romp through the R&B influences which Bolan had always acknowledged, but never truly explored -- the solid James Brown drive of "The Avengers (Superbad)," "Interstellar Soul," "Liquid Gang," and the implausibly slight, but impressively groove-ridden "You've Got to Jive to Stay Alive." Into the same bag, one can also throw the period B-sides "Satisfaction Pony" and "Sitting Here" -- both of which have also been added to the album. Deeply soul-soaked songs like these aren't simply a new direction. They are the very signposts which would soon be guiding so many other English rock talents down some very unfamiliar alleyways. Zinc Alloy was released in March, 1974. Bowie began rehearsing his Philly Dogs tour in July. Yet, even with such credentials to uphold it, this isn't quite Bolan's soul album. Those demons would be exorcised on a second record cut with singer Sister Pat Hall and elsewhere in his collaborations with girlfriend Gloria Jones. Besides, the production here was just a little too cautious to truly convince the wary listener. Neither can it be neatly categorized in the same fashion as, say, Bowie's Young Americans -- Bolan looked across the spectrum for his influences, but he never once went to Philadelphia. Rather, it straddles that same pop/rock, funky R&B landscape as early Funkadelic, Sly Stone and Co., neither fish nor fowl, dead fish nor foul, but something somewhere in between. Approach it with caution. But get in there regardless. [The 2002 deluxe two-CD edition adds five songs to the original disc ("The Groover," "Midnight," "Truck On (Tyke)," "Sitting Here," and "Satisfaction Pony") and adds a second disc that has a track-by-track re-creation of the first disc made up of alternate takes, as well as six more bonus tracks appended to those tracks.]...D.

Jefferson Airplane - The Essential (2CD Remaster Edit 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

RCA/Legacy's 32-track Jefferson Airplane retrospective focuses on the influential psychedelic rock collective's late-'60s/early-'70s heydays. From 1966 (Jefferson Airplane Takes Off) through 1972 (Thirty Seconds Over Winterland), the group released nine albums that effectively shadowed the era, blending social themes with drugs, paranoia, and youthful rebellion/revolution. Essential may be a bit much for the casual fan, as its two discs delve deep into the group's eclectic catalog, stacking lost gems like "Eskimo Blue Day" and "Third Week in the Chelsea" alongside radio staples like "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit," and "Volunteers," but those who are willing to take the plunge will be rewarded with the band's most thorough, informative, and thoughtfully paced anthology to date...R.

The Small Faces - Odgen's Nut Gone Flake 3 CD Deluxe Edition (2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There was no shortage of good psychedelic albums emerging from England in 1967-1968, but Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake is special even within their ranks. The Small Faces had already shown a surprising adaptability to psychedelia with the single “Itchycoo Park” and much of their other 1967 output, but Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake pretty much ripped the envelope. British bands had an unusual approach to psychedelia from the get-go, often preferring to assume different musical “personae” on their albums, either feigning actual “roles” in the context of a variety show (as on the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album), or simply as storytellers in the manner of the Pretty Things on S.F. Sorrow, or actor/performers as on the Who’s Tommy. The Small Faces tried a little bit of all of these approaches on Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake, but they never softened their sound. Side one’s material, in particular, would not have been out of place on any other Small Faces release— “Afterglow (Of Your Love)” and “Rene” both have a pounding beat from Kenny Jones, and Ian McLagan’s surging organ drives the former while his economical piano accompaniment embellishes the latter; and Steve Marriott’s crunching guitar highlights “Song of a Baker.” Marriott singing has him assuming two distinct “roles,” neither unfamiliar—the Cockney upstart on “Rene” and “Lazy Sunday,” and the diminutive soul shouter on “Afterglow (Of Your Love)” and “Song of a Baker.” Some of side two’s production is more elaborate, with overdubbed harps and light orchestration here and there, and an array of more ambitious songs, all linked by a narration by comic dialect expert Stanley Unwin, about a character called “Happiness Stan.” The core of the sound, however, is found in the pounding “Rollin’ Over,” which became a highlight of the group’s stage act during its final days—the song seems lean and mean with a mix in which Ronnie Lane’s bass is louder than the overdubbed horns. Even “Mad John,” which derives from folk influences, has a refreshingly muscular sound on its acoustic instruments. Overall, this was the ballsiest-sounding piece of full-length psychedelia to come out of England, and it rode the number one spot on the U.K. charts for six weeks in 1968, though not without some controversy surrounding advertisements by Immediate Records that parodied the Lord’s Prayer. Still, Ogden’s was the group’s crowning achievement—it had even been Marriott’s hope to do a stage presentation of Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake, though a television special might’ve been more in order. As with most Immediate Records releases, it has gone through multiple reissue cycles on vinyl and CD; the original LP came in a circular sleeve in keeping with the design of the cover, and was reissued in a more convention jacket during the 1970s and early ‘80s. Most of the CD versions until the 1990s were, in keeping with the poor state of the Immediate Records tape library, substandard in sound, but since 1994 or so there has been a succession of good-sounding digital remasterings.

Electric Light Orchestra - Live at the BBC (1973-76) (1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Live At The BBC" covers concerts performed by the band for transmission by the BBC and includes two quite different periods in ELO's development. From early in 1973, when they were still an arty, experimental rock/classic fusion ensemble, we have songs based around the first two ELO albums. Shortly after this period (in 1974), there are tracks from another concert. The later period of the Electric Light Orchestra is represented by a summer of 1976 concert when they were heading towards their most successful rock/pop period and the all-conquering "Out Of The Blue" album.
The audio on these tracks is, quite simply, superb. The BBC engineers captured every nuance, and the sound is crystal-clear. The concerts were performed in front of respectful audiences, and there are nice introductions from the shows' comperes. Although live shows, the sound is much more like in a studio, playing to invited fans, so the BBC must have had mic feeds ahead of the band's own mixing desk. But being live concerts brings us those variations in the set which are unobtainable from normal studio albums. It is these moments which produce the magic of "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" - two versions! The original studio album version of this track always sounded a little flat, but Jeff and the gang really bring it to life on "Live At The BBC".
I would have liked more 'showcase' performances from individual members of the band. Mik Kaminski's "Violin Solo / Orange Blossom Special" seems to be over before it's begun! And the sleeve-notes, while adequate, could have usefully catalogued the albums and respective dates to help plot the progression through the band's various phases. It's best to ignore the repeated quote of "Oh No Not Susan" as a typo.
Of all the live material from the original Electric Light Orchestra which is available on CD, this album has to be about the best. They are terrific performances backed by fantastic sound quality...Hans A. Plast

Grobschnitt - Solar Music Live (1978) (Remaster Edit 1998)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A progressive rock milestone. "Solar Music" evokes such a perfect harmony between strong lyrics and heavy repertoires of long drum solos. Strongly recommended for those prog rock fans who are intrepid and restless when it comes to discover new horizons within the 70's lost worlds of prog. A must have! It isn't only the live version of their previous works, it is a whole different experience beyond that. The power and passion of this miraculous exercise made music, is simply incomparable to anything regarding not only the prog scene of the 70's, but the nowadays prog, turning this 9 pieces set, into the greatest live recording of Progressive Rock. You won't believe the magnetism, the interaction and the charisma this German band's got prepared for your, it is useless to resist the charm, you will get sucked in the world of Grobschnitt. The remastered CD edition contains previously unreleased material...Dichter Nebel

Do you hear solar music? Do you hear solar music?" is the musical question being asked here and if this Grobschnitt live album doesn't space you right out, it's time to call up NASA and rent a space shuttle.
Of all the live albums in my personal collection I would have to rank Grobschnitt's "Solar Music - Live" as one of the all time classics. I have adored this album for years and was happy to hear that Eroc of the band had re-mastered the original recording adding an extra 13 mins void off of the earlier CD pressings. "Solar Music - Live" rests on its own as yet another one of Grobschnitt's greatest moments and is a fantastic voyage into the heart of the sun. The concert essentially runs as 1 long piece of music offering great guitar, bass and keyboard interplay. Although "Solar Music" does appear on the studio album "Ballermann" it is live where we get to hear the theatrics and the pure energy Grobschnitt were able to muster up. Keyboard work is highly atmospheric and paves a great path for the magical electrical guitar work present on this album...Rainer Zuphall

Taste - Live at the Isle of Wight (1970) (2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This album is blistering ! From the opening chords of Whats Going On, Rory Gallagher screams outrageous solos from his Strat, while Richard McCracken and John Wilson weave a psychedelic hard rock beat. Blues standards such as Sugar Mama and Feel So Good demonstrate Taste's ability to mix up a bluegrass standard with hard rock. The high point is an epic version of Catfish, which features a highly charged guitar/drum battle. Its Taste's best album, and a must for any late 60's blues/rock afficianado...Bob Hope

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd (1973) (Remaster Edit 2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I got turned on to Lynyrd Skynyrd when I heard 'Sweet Home Alabama' for the first time. I thought I would buy this album to see what they were like over the course of an album. They are awesome! There are no two ways about it, 'Pronounced' is brilliant.It has it all, great songs, great riffs and one of the most amazing rock songs ever written in 'Freebird'. The guitar solo is longer than most songs!!! I would highly recommend this album to anyone who loves the guitar as an instrument!! Truly amazing!

It's the birth of a great band that birthed an entire genre with this album.

Vanilla Fudge - Near The Beginning (1969) (1996)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I've always been very fond of "side one" of this Vanilla Fudge album. The full length treatment of Junior Walker's "Shotgun" is less about pulling the trigger than about bludgeoning a mortar shell with a sledge hammer. It's ace. Only the Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood original tops Fudge's cover of "Some Velvet Morning," in which the singer promises to tell us about "Phaedra" but never does. I will. Phaedra was a half-goddess cursed with a desire for younger men who hung herself out of guilt & shame after her son rejected her sexual advances. Obviously, something very odd was bing Lee Hazlewood. The Fudge do it up like soundtrack music for a Dario Argento movie, & it rates with their spooky version of "Season of the Witch." It's followed by "Where Is Happiness," a slow rumination on why not getting laid qualifies as spiritual suffering. You also get a slam-bang "Good Good Lovin'," "People," (an original song if not title) & a radio edit of "Shotgun" for listeners inclined to get migraines. But if you get migraines, please stop listening to this album. "Break Song" is a 25 minute long Recorded Live in Concert wrestling match in an elephant graveyard, a perfect example of the genre, but I'm sure most of the audience had passed out before Carmen's drum solo...

Frumpy - Live (1972) (1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Line-up

- Inga Rumpf / vocals, guitar
- Jean-Jacques Kravetz / keyboards
- Rainer Baumann / guitar
- Karl-Heinz Schott / bass
- Carsten Bohn / drums

Well I'm pretty sure everybody know who Frumpy was, they were probably German's best 'straight' rock band in the early seventies. Great stuff. Kinda proggy maybe just a little, but mostly soulful, R & B based rock.

This is an excellent mix of blues, soul, hard rock and prog, with some "classic" brief interludes. Frumpy was a band which ended much too soon, they were talented musicians and singer Inga Rumpf had a powerful (although a bith rough) voice. This live album was a posthumous release, and Repertoire Records added two live 1970 songs to the original seven pieces. Apart from "Backwater Blues" (one of the highlights of the album), which was written by Bessie Smith, all the songs were written by band member (specially Inga Rumpf and Jean-Jacques Kravetz). Please note that guitar player Rainer Baumann played on this album (his name must be added at the line-up above - and the band's drummer was Carsten Bohn - "Bandstand" was the band he formed after Frumpy's end). All tracks on CD 1 (first five songs at the songlisting) are definitely worth a listen, making this album a good addition to any prog-rock fan's collection, although it's not essential. By the way, don't be fooled by the fact they were Germans: if you like kraut- rock, this will not be your band. - Review by M. B. Zapelini (Marcello B. Zapelini)

The four musicians who formed FRUMPY were all members of Irishman O' Brian-Docker's folkband The City Preachers, which he founded in Hamburg in 1965. The City Preachers played an excellent blend of American and British folk music and had, sometimes, over a dozen people on stage. Discontent with singer Dagmar Krause, drummer Carsten Bohn left the City Preachers in November 1969 and took singer Inga Rumpf, French keyboarder Jean-Jacques Kravetz and guitarist Karl-Heinz Schott with him to form FRUMPY. In spring of 1970, FRUMPY started a successful tour of France. The same year, they went on a 50 concert tour with SPOOKY TOOTH, and played with YES, HUMBLE PIE and RENAISSANCE. In autumn of 1970, FRUMPY released the first album "All Will Be Changed" which contained only own material with the exception of a Richie Havens cover. The Following year guitarist Rainer Baumann joined FRUMPY and played on the bands second LP "Frumpy 2", which was rapped in a round plastic bag. In Germany, the album was well received and proved that rock music from Germany could live up to international standard. Their music combines jazz, soul and eastern elements with the keyboards as the most important instrument. FRUMPY topped the Musik Express poll as the most popular German rock group of the year and the newspaper FAZ assisted singer Inga Rumpf to be "the country's biggest individual talent", but a tour of England with MOTT THE HOOPLE failed to attract popularity in Britain. Musical differences with keyboarder Kravetz caused him to leave FRUMPY, in spring 1972, to record a solo Lp with Inga Rumpf singing one song. But he returned for the recording sessions of FRUMPY's third LP "By The Way". But FRUMPY disbanded after a farewell concert on June 26, 1972. Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott formed ATLANTIS. The year 1990 saw a FRUMPY reunio and a new LP "Now!".

Atlantis was the band that rose from the ashes of Frumpy, and of course featured the distinct vocals of Inga Rumpf. Besides Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott from Frumpy, other members came from Emergency and Curly Curve. More mainstream than krautrock, more soulful and funky than edgy, they were nonetheless a terrific outfit. This was released as a double LP and features tracks recorded live at Hamburg's Fabrik from 1973 to 1975.

Atomic Rooster - Made in England (1972) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The third incarnation of English prog rockers, Atomic Rooster make their debut on Made in England (1972). The group began as a trio featuring former Crazy World of Arthur Brown member Vincent Crane (organ), Nick Graham (bass), and Carl Palmer (drums). After a few significant shuffles within the lineup, only Crane continued with the name, recruiting Colosseum co-founder and Mick Jagger prot? Chris Farlowe (vocals), and Ric Parnell (percussion) and Steve Bolton (guitars) as the next generation. They have an edgy and somewhat brooding sound, recalling early Mott the Hoople discs such as the highlymore… underrated Mad Shadows (1970). Much of the material reveals the quartet's slightly funky groove, such as the pulsating "Stand by Me," or the gospel-inflection on the spoken "Introduction," which prefaces the Crane instrumental "Breathless." Somewhat misplaced is the orchestration — especially on "Time Take My Life" — which tends to congest the otherwise driving arrangement. Parnell penned a pair of the finest contributions on Made in England, the slinky "Little Bit of Inner Air," as well as the Southern rock tinged "All in Satan's Name." The latter comes off like a blend of the Allman Brothers and Deep Purple. Bolton supplies the power ballad "Never to Lose," as well as "Space Cowboy," which develops into an electric hoedown following a somewhat off-balance and synth-heavy keyboard intro. Bolton would be the next casualty of the combo, leading to the formation of the criminally underrated Headstone. A successful North American tour resulted in Made in England, which charted briefly in the U.S., and would be the final Atomic Rooster album to do so. The band would successfully continue under Crane's tutelage until the early '80s, when he joined up with a post-"Come on Eileen" Dexy's Midnight Runners...Hans A. Plast

Line-up:

- Chris Farlowe / vocals
- Vincent Crane / Hammond organ, piano, electric pianos, A.R.P. synthesizer
- Steve Bolton / electric guitars, 12-string guitar

Marshall Tucker Band – Stompin' Room Only (Unreleased Live Recording) (1974-76)(2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Twenty seven years after it was compiled, the apocryphal Stompin' Room Only is finally released. The album, which suffers only from being the seam album between Marshall Tucker's tenures at Capricorn and Warner Bros, was recorded during the European tour in support of Carolina Dreams. Here are 11 tracks by the original band -- with guests on a few -- with two cuts from a Milwaukee 1974 show tacked on for good measure. This is Marshall Tucker as they have never been heard on record. Like the Allmans, the Tuckers were all about seamlessly expanding from one musical form into another. Whereas studio versions of "Can't You See," "Take the Highway," "Ramblin'," and "24 Hours at a time," would weave elements of jazz, blues, honky tonk, gospel, and Appalachian folk music into the body of a song, on these extended jamming excursions they fully indulged their passions, winding in and out of genres without seams or sudden shifts. On an elongated cover of B.B. King's signature tune, "The Thrill Is Gone," with a number of guests including Dickey Betts and Charlie Daniels (making for a four-guitar front line!) as well as Jimmy Hall and Chuck Leavell, Chicago blues, jazz, and country are all enmeshed simultaneously, as the hidden nuances in the song come to the fore. On the gloriously long "24 Hours at a Time," Tom Caldwell's bass moves through the various jazz eras as Daniels fiddles his ass off to keep time with Toy Caldwell's knotty, razor-wire leads. And for those fans of the Marshal Tucker Band whose gauge is the song, "Can't You See," there isn't a better one on record or bootleg that's better than this one. With its shuffling, funky backbeat, and Toy Caldwell's impassioned vocal leading the charge to his burning solos, it literally send chills up the spine. This is one of the few cases where a found "lost" recording lives up its legend...Rainer Zuphall

King Crimson - Red (1974) (30th Anniversary ReMaster)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

King Crimson falls apart once more, seemingly for the last time, as David Cross walks away during the making of this album. It became Robert Fripp's last thoughts on this version of the band, a bit noiser overall but with some surprising sounds featured, mostly out of the group's past — Mel Collins' and Ian McDonald's saxes, Marc Charig's cornet, and Robin Miller's oboe, thus providing a glimpse of what the 1972-era King Crimson might've sounded like handling the later group's repertory (which nearly happened). Indeed, Charig's cornet gets just about the best showcase it ever had on a King Crimsonmore… album, and the truth is that few intact groups could have gotten an album as good as Red together. The fact that it was put together by a band in its death throes makes it all the more impressive an achievement. Indeed, Red does improve in some respects on certain aspects of the previous album — including "Starless," a cousin to the prior album's title track — and only the lower quality of the vocal compositions keeps this from being as strongly recommended as its two predecessors. Red was reissued on CD in the summer of 2000 in a remastered edition that features killer sound and an excellent booklet, containing a good account of the circumstances surrounding the recording of this album...Bob Hope

Ufo - Ufo1 (1970) (Remaster Edit 1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In the seventies, UFO became one of the superpowers of hard rock, releasing awesome album after awesome album in their heyday with former Scorpions guitar virtuoso, Michael Schenker. However, contrary to popular belief, the band’s musical career began quite a bit earlier than the better-known Schenker years. In their earlier days, the band featured a lesser-known guitarist, Mick Bolton. When UFO formed circa 1969, the group was called Hocus Pocus, but changed their name to reflect that of a famous club in London. In this early formative period, UFO released two studio albums, the first of which being the appropriately-titled UFO 1. Recorded on a shoestring budget, UFO has several challenging sonic moments. The uneven mixes and amateur performances that some listeners might find quaint or innocent could be distracting to others. In their pre-Michael Schenker days, the British band made a much more experimental noise that reflected psychedelic as well as R&B influences pitched with a dark resonance. This swirling mish-mosh barely sests the early British metal of the group's commercial pinnacle that was still years off when they released their eponymous debut. Blue Cheer, early Black Sabbath, and maybe a little bit of the Who (mostly derived via bassist Pete Way's meandering, over-saturated basslines) all come to mind on standouts like "Boogie," "C'mon Everybody," and "Follow You Home." While ignored completely in the States as well as their British home, U F O was a bit of an international hit. "C'mon Everybody" made it to the top of the charts in Japan, which led to a tour of the country and enough career momentum to keep the records coming while the sound of (and worldwide market for) heavy metal slowly took shape. While far from being the best offering from Pete Way, Phil Mogg, and company, U F O is a nice pre-metal study that reveals how the blues/psychedelic amalgam inspired would-be metal artists before pop was injected into the genre.

When UFO started out, back before they had Michael Schenker join the band, they were a far cry from the incarnation of the band that got popular, and that most people remember them for being. Rather than the straight-up hard rock that would bring the band fame, this early face of the band used a psychedelic, heavy blues rock sound. Many fans of the group have dubbed this a “space rock” sound, and I think this is a good name for the musical sound conveyed here. The record came out in 1970, just as musical trends were changing, and this record serves as a beautiful example of that transitional period for rock and roll. Many of these songs have that classic sixties psychedelic hard rock sound to them, many of them hint at the band’s future sound, and many are the happy medium.

Big Brother and the Holding Company (feat. Janis Joplin) - Cheap Thrills (1968) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Genre Psychedelic rock, acid rock, blues-rock, hard rock

Cheap Thrills, the major-label debut of Janis Joplin, was one of the most eagerly anticipated, and one of the most successful, albums of 1968. Joplin and her band Big Brother & the Holding Company had earned extensive press notice ever since they played the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, but for a year after that their only recorded work was a poorly produced, self-titled album that they'd done early in their history for Mainstream Records; and it took the band and the best legal minds at Columbia Records seven months to extricate them from their Mainstream contract, so that they could sign with Columbia. All the while, demand continued to build, and they still faced the problem of actually delivering something worthy of the press they'd been getting -- Columbia even tried to record them live on-stage on the tour they were in the midst of when the new contract was signed, but somehow the concert tapes from early March of 1968 didn't capture the full depth of their work. So they spent March, April, and May in the studio with producer John Simon and, miraculously, emerged with something that was as exciting as anything they'd done on-stage. When Cheap Thrills appeared in August 1968 -- sporting a Robert Crumb cover on its gatefold jacket that constituted the most elaborate album design ever lavished on a rock album from Columbia Records, as well as a pop-art classic rivaling the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's jacket -- it shot into the charts, reaching number one and going gold within a couple of months, and "Piece of My Heart" became a Top 40 hit and helped to propel the LP to over a million sales. Joplin, with her ear- (and vocal cord-) shredding voice, was the obvious standout. Nobody had ever heard singing as emotional, as desperate, as determined, or as loud as Joplin's, and Cheap Thrills was her greatest moment. Not that everything was done full out -- there were relatively quiet moments on the album that were as compelling as the high-wattage showcases; her rendition of George Gershwin's "Summertime" was the finest rock reinterpretation of a standard done by anybody up to that time (though, in an incident recalled in his autobiography Clive, when Columbia Records president Clive Davis played it to Richard Rodgers to give him an example of some of the sounds that younger audiences of the late '60s were listening to, the 66-year-old Rodgers stomped out of the Columbia corporate offices in fury, vowing never to write another song); and Joplin's own "Turtle Blues" showed that she and the band could turn down and do credible acoustic blues, in something like an authentic period Bessie Smith (or, more properly, Memphis Minnie) sound. Big Brother's backup, typical of the guitar-dominated sound of San Francisco psychedelia, made up in enthusiasm what it lacked in precision. But everybody knew who the real star was, and Joplin played her last gig with Big Brother while the album was still on top of the charts. Neither she nor the band would ever equal it. Heard today, Cheap Thrills is a musical time capsule and remains a showcase for one of rock's most distinctive singers.

The cover was drawn by underground cartoonist Robert Crumb after the bands original cover idea, a picture of the group naked in bed together, was dropped by the record company. The cover was originally ment to to be the records back picture but the band did not like Crumb's original front drawing. It is number 9 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest album covers.

Initially, the album was to be called Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills, but the title was not received well by Columbia Records.

Outtakes originally to have appeared on the album have since been released on Janis Joplin compliations such as Farewell Song (In which Big Brother's original instruments were replaced with studio musicians from 1981, angering Big Brother and the Holding Company) and The Janis compilation box set featuring all original studio songs and live recordings. The 1999 re-release of Cheap Thrills features the outtakes Flower in the Sun, Roadbloack, Magic of Love and Catch Me Daddy as bonus material.

Wallenstein - Blitzkrieg (1971)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Wallenstein were one of Germany's best known "space rock" bands, clearly indebted to Pink Floyd but also developing a personal style of their own. Jürgen Dollase founded the group "Blitzkrieg" as an international group with Bill Barone (from the USA), Jerry Berkers (from the Netherlands) and Harald Grosskopf (from Germany!). Dollase had previously studied art and classical music. In late Autumn 1971 Blitzkrieg had the repertoire ready for an album, but as a British group already was using the name "Blitzkrieg", the German group changed their name to Wallenstein and kept Blitzkrieg as the title of their first album. This featured four very long tracks in a symphonic progressive rock style (all written by Dollase) and almost completely instrumental. Dense, complex and powerful stuff!...Rainer Zuphall

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Anthology: Through The Years (1976-1993) (2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Digitally remastered by Joe Gaswirt...
...includes the previously unreleased "Surrender" and "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (with Stevie Nicks).

Neatly fitting in between 1993's GREATEST HITS and the 5-CD PLAYBACK box set that came out two years later, this 34-track collection is a chronological tour of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' MCA Records material. The consistent quality found throughout this two-CD set that's bookended by the sinister-sounding "Breakdown" and chiming "Surrender"(a song Petty wrote in the '70s but didn't get around to recording until August 2000) boggles the mind.

Tight playing and a palpable sense of passion from the four-piece Heartbreakers transform songs like "Even the Losers", "Rebels" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance" into rock & roll manna. Elsewhere, this Floridian singer-songwriter's sharp eye for pop culture ("Jammin' Me") and storytelling mastery ("Into the Great Wide Open," "Two Gunslingers") become pleasantly recurring characteristics. The inclusion of a scorching live version of the Byrds' "So You Wanna Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star" show Petty and company to be as potent on stage as in the studio. By the end of this musical tour it's hard to argue with the lofty statement Cameron Crowe makes in his liner notes calling Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "...the greatest and most consistent American band of the last twenty-five years..."

Janis Joplin . Pearl (2 CD Legacy Edition) (2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Janis Joplin's highest charting and arguably most artistically successful album gets the deluxe, expanded treatment on this 2005 reissue. Already re-released once with four extra live tunes, this edition moves those to the second disc, adds nine more (six previously unavailable) from the same summer 1970 tour that predated the original album's January 1971 posthumous release and pads the studio disc with six additional tracks. Those sides--three are inferior, if moderately interesting alternate takes, one is a band jam without Joplin contributing--don't bring much to the table other than tomore… prove that producer Paul A. Rothchild used the correct versions for the final album. But Pearl holds up tremendously well, with Janis focused on some terrific rocking material, yet widening her scope to include a soulful folksy reading of Kris Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee," the album's only major hit. The real meat of this version consists of the thirteen concert recordings, plucked from the Canadian leg of Joplin's only tour with Full Tilt Boogie. It finds her and the band ching through ragged but emotionally charged versions of her classics, along with a few tunes from the forthcoming Pearl. Sequenced to mirror her set list, it's a roaring example of Joplin in her prime, comfortable with her band and confident in her astounding abilities to tear into the soul of blues and R&B with vocals that come straight from the heart.

J. Geils Band - Houseparty: The J. Geils Band Anthology (2 CD Remaster 1993)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The 38 tracks on the two-CD set, "The J. Geils Band Anthology," were arranged out of chronological order so the first 10 songs on the second disc could all be live recordings. Those songs give you a good sense of what the second set at a J. Geils show sounded like back in the days when the band was the most exciting blues-rock band in the land. On stage, the sextet would expand the boundaries of the blues to include everything from Stax and Motown to jackhammer rhythms and screaming solos, and that roadhouse party attitude carried over into a series of hit studio recordings.

The J. Geils Band was one of the most popular touring rock & roll bands in America during the '70s. Where their contemporaries were influenced by the heavy boogie of British blues-rock and the ear-splitting sonic adventures of psychedelia, the J. Geils Band was a bar band pure and simple, churning out greasy covers of obscure R&B, doo wop, and soul tunes, cutting them with a healthy dose of Stonesy swagger. While their muscular sound and the hyper jive of frontman Peter Wolf packed arenas across America, it only rarely earned them hit singles. Seth Justman, the group's main songwriter, could turn out catchy R&B-based rockers like "Give It to Me" and "Must of Got Lost," but these hits never led to stardom, primarily because the group had trouble capturing the energy of its live sound in the studio. In the early '80s, the group tempered its driving rock with some pop, and the makeover paid off with the massive hit single "Centerfold," which stayed at number one for six weeks. By the time the band prepared to record a follow-up, tensions between Justman and Wolf had grown considerably, resulting in Wolf's departure, which quickly led to the band's demise. After working for years to reach to top of the charts, the J. Geils Band couldn't stay there once they finally achieved their goal.

Guitarist J. Geils, bassist Danny Klein, and harpist Magic Dick (born Richard Salwitz) began performing as an acoustic blues trio sometime in the mid-'60s. In 1967, drummer Stephen Jo Bladd and vocalist Peter Wolf joined the group, and the band went electric. Before joining the J. Geils Band, Bladd and Wolf played together in the Boston-based rock revivalist band the Hallucinations. Both musicians shared a love of arcane doo wop, blues, R&B, and rock & roll, and Wolf had become well-known by spinning such obscure singles as a jive-talking WBCN DJ called Woofuh Goofuh. Wolf and Bladd's specialized tastes became a central force in the newly revamped J. Geils Band, whose members positioned themselves as tough '50s greasers in opposition to the colorful psychedelic rockers who dominated the East Coast in the late '60s. Soon, the band had earned a sizable local following, including Seth Justman, an organist who was studying at Boston University. Justman joined the band in 1968, and the band continued to tour for the next few years, landing a record contract with Atlantic in 1970.

The J. Geils Band was a regional hit upon its early 1970 release, and it earned favorable reviews, especially from Rolling Stone. The group's second album, The Morning After, appeared later that year and, thanks to the Top 40 hit "Looking for a Love," the album expanded the band's following. However, the J. Geils Band continued to win new fans primarily through their concerts, so it was no surprise that their third album, 1972's Full House, was a live set. It was followed by Bloodshot, a record that climbed into the Top Ten on the strength of the Top 40 hit "Give It to Me." Following the relative failure of 1973's Ladies Invited, the band had another hit with 1974's Nightmares, which featured the number 12 single "Must of Got Lost." While their live shows remained popular throughout the mid-'70s, both Hot Line (1975) and the live Blow Your Face Out (1976) were significant commercial disappointments. The band revamped its sound and shortened its name to "Geils" for 1977's Monkey Island. While the album received good reviews, the record failed to bring the group increased sales.

In 1978, the J. Geils Band left Atlantic Records for EMI, releasing Sanctuary later that year. Sanctuary slowly gained a following, becoming their first gold album since Bloodshot. Love Stinks (1980) expanded the group's following even more, peaking at number 18 in the charts and setting the stage for 1981's Freeze Frame, the band's high watermark. Supported by the infectious single "Centerfold" -- which featured a memorable video that received heavy MTV airplay -- and boasting a sleek, radio-ready sound, Freeze Frame climbed to number one. "Centerfold" shot to the top of the charts late in 1981, spending six weeks at number one; its follow-up, "Freeze-Frame," was nearly as successful, reaching number four in the spring of 1982. The live album Showtime! became a gold album shortly after its late 1982 release.

While the band was experiencing the greatest commercial success of its career, relationships between the members, particularly writing partners Justman and Wolf, were volatile. When the group refused to record material Wolf had written with Don Covay and Michael Jonzun, he left the band in the middle of a 1983 recording session. Justman assumed lead vocals, and the group released You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Odd in late 1984, several months after Wolf's successful solo debut, Lights Out. The J. Geils Band's record was a failure, and the band broke up in 1985. Magic Dick and J. Geils reunited in 1993 to form a contemporary blues band that has released two CDs, Bluestime and Little Car Blues. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Bruce Springsteen - The Essential (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For an artist with a career as long and stacked with worthwhile albums as Bruce Springsteen's, greatest hits compilations like The Essential Bruce Springsteen are always a difficult proposition. To pick the best moments from three decades, include all the hits, string them together into a cohesive whole and then cram them onto two CDs that hopefully tell the story of a lifetime's work is a near impossible task. For once though, these 30 tracks do just that. From the early Van Morrison-styled fumblings of "Blinded by the Light" and "Spirit of the Night" through to the small-town dreams of escapemore… of "Born to Run" and disillusioned bar-room anthem of "Born in the USA", it chronologically charts the genesis, rise and crowning of the blue-collar hero from New Jersey. Meanwhile, the thick drawl of "Tunnel of Love" and "Streets of Philadelphia" and the quiet introspection of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" remind that as well as being the quintessential American rocker, Springsteen is a songwriter with a unique insight into the human condition. Those who harbour a longstanding devotion to Springsteen will probably feel that there are glaring omissions--other album tracks more essential than some of the ones included here. For everyone else though, The Essential Bruce Springsteen is a phenomenal place to start.

Wallenstein - Mother Universe (1972) (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The second release from German band Wallenstein is a great album of vintage prog/space-rock. Brilliant keyboard playing by Jurgen Dollase, fantastic drumming from Harald Grosskopf, and guitarist Bill Barone contributes some solid rock playing and fiery leads. Vocalist Jerry Berkers may be a acquired taste for some. Overall a very solid album and a classic of German prog.

Motörhead - The Essential 2CD (2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With a list of hits to die for and three decades on the road, Motörhead are nothing short of a phenomenon; without doubt one of the hardest-rocking acts Britain has ever produced. This stunning compilation presents Lemmy and Co.'s finest moments, but be advised that it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. After all, this is the band who said, “If we moved in next door to you, your lawn would die!”

Pretenders - Break Up The Concrete (Special Edition 2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Break Up the Concrete is the first Pretenders album since 1990s Packed! where Chrissie Hynde wrote almost every song on the album on her own, but unlike the generally listless Packed!, Break Up the Concrete is an effective rebirth for Hynde, a reconnection to her roots undoubtedly effected by her return to her native Ohio. This may be a stripped-down record carrying echoes of the Pretenders past, but this is hardly a conscious re-creation of the group's first two records, as it lacks any of the stylish guitar colorings of James Honeyman-Scott, and the group's early hard rock swagger has been swapped out for a frenetic rockabilly bop, as infectious on the barrel-headed boogie "Don't Cut Your Hair" and Bo Diddley romp of the title track as it is on the ingenious Dylan send-up "Boots of Chinese Plastic." Hynde's revived rockabilly roll finds a comfortable pairing in the easy county-rock vibe of her ballads, of which there are far more of than there are rockers here. This emphasis on rockabilly and country-rock gives Break Up the Concrete a bit of an Americana feel -- something enhanced by the gently murmuring accordion on "You Didn't Have To," which otherwise is a cousin to the sighing pop of "Kid" -- but this doesn't necessarily feel like a departure for Hynde: it just feels like a lively, deeply felt Pretenders album, one that has better songs and better performances than usual.

Alan Parsons Project - Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Remaster Edit 2007)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A real gift for the lovers of Alan Parsons Project, with versions and Bonus Tracks. This edition includes both versions of this classic album: original version of 1976 and remix of 1987. Truely their sound differ: This excellent reissue give both the original 1976 mix (not available on cd before) and the superior 1987 which has more ambient sounding drums as well as some extra guitar passages added by Ian Bairnson. Orson Welles also narrates in between the tracks. Original version sounds more fresh and more rocky, especially "The Tell-Tale Heart" with Arthur Brown's voice. There were no readings from Edgar Poe by Orson Welles (it was recorded after the album was finished). In 1987 were added new parties of keyboards (organ solo performed by Alan Parsons in 1987 in "The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether" much more impressive than on original record), guitars, narration by Orson Welles, sound was corrected. Bonus tracks are - previously unpublished song "Edgar", fragments of studio sessions, examples of all songs with vocals by Eric Woolfson, sound effects from "Arrival" (rain, thunder, organ etc.), interview by Alan and Eric from 1976 with interesting information about their work, Orson Welles reading without music, commercial for the radio with his voice. No B-sides or finished and unpublished material.
Both albums are remastered by Alan Parsons himself (but you have to prepare yourself for a little bit different sound on familiar for majority of us 1987 version). If you are true Alan Parsons lover - this edition is a must for you.

Rory Gallagher - Jinx (1982) (Remaster Edit 2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Despite the title of the album that described his life at the time, Rory Gallagher put a tremendous amount of vitality into these recordings. After all the years since his heyday I still find that it's Jinx I listen to the most. So I was eager to get hold of a copy of it on CD.The music does not disappoint but the remix is not subtle. Rhythm guitars have been lowered in the mix so much that the immediacy and dynamics of Gallagher's music is compromised. 'Signals' is a good illustration of this - a highlight of the original album, this version is lacklustre, and the title track has been robbedmore… of its power.This is not to say that it is all bad. The mixes work well on some tracks like 'Big Guns' and the vocals now stand out with brilliant clarity throughout. Perhaps this is a good thing for a modern audience and if it helps win some younger fans then fine.In the meantime, I'll keep hold of my vinyl album from the 80's, thanks...Manfred Mandel

Cuby & The Blizzards - Singles A's & B's (1965-77) (2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This group from Grollo in Drente can be called a patriarch of the Dutch blues groups. The two frontmen, Harry "Cuby" Muskee (v, h, ex-Oldfashioned Jazzband) and Eelco Gelling (g), had already played together in the Rocking Strings (1962) and the Sharks (1963). Together with bassist Willy Middel and drummer Dick Beekman they played rock & roll in those early years.

They changed their name into Cuby & Blizzards after adding guitarist Hans Kinds. Their first gig was set to take place at the Emmen zoological gardens, and soon the group became so popular, that they had to rush-produce their first recording, followed by a tour through Italy.

The group's fame eventually spread throughout Europe and reached the shores of Albion. Also worth noting is that Eelco was asked to come and play with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, and the group toured through the Netherlands with Van Morrison. They also recorded an LP together with the then-52-year old American bluesman Eddie Boyd, entitled, "Praise The Blues". Other memorable feats: the Edison that was presented to them by Wim Sonneveld for the LP "Desolation", a performance on the Grand Gala du Disque in 1968 and a visit by John Mayall to Cuby's little farm in Grollo.

Golden Earring - Moontan (1973) (Remaster Edit 2001)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This 1973 outing is the album that raised Golden Earring to an international level of popularity, primarily on the strength of the hit single and enduring radio favorite "Radar Love." However, there is much more to this album than just that hit. In many ways, Moontan is like a summation of everything the group had learned on their first three albums. It presents a similar combination of prog epics, heavy rockers, and songs that combine both elements, but everything is raised to a new level of inspiration and polish. It starts with a bang thanks to "Candy's Going Bad," a piece that starts off asmore… a thunderous, pounding rocker but transforms midway into a bluesy instrumental mood piece. Other highlights include the hit single "Radar Love," a relentless rock tune with a left-field instrumental break in which tribal drums duel with a big band-style horn section, and "Just Like Vince Taylor," a guitar-slinging slice of boogie rock that pays tribute to the fallen rock idol of the title. The album also includes what may be the group's finest prog effort in "Vanilla Queen": this classic builds from pulsating, ominous verses dominated by synthesizer into a hard-rocking chorus and also throws in a stark acoustic guitar midsection before climaxing in a frantic band jam augmented by blaring horns and an ever-spiraling string section. Despite the album's overall strength, not every song reaches these heights: "Are You Receiving Me?" recycles some hooks from the group's past classic "She Flies on Strange Wings," and the twangy country-pop of "Suzy Lunacy (Mental Rock)" is a little too poppy to gel with the rest of the album. However, even these tunes benefit from tight arrangements and a spirited, totally committed performance from the group. The result is an album that retains its power today. In the end, Moontan is a necessity for Golden Earring fans, and a worthwhile listen for anyone interested in 1970s rock at its most adventurous...Dhar Jelling

Lynyrd Skynyrd - First and Last - 1970-72 (1978)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Skynyrd's First And Last" was a posthumous album collecting the band's recording not included in other studio albums. Although it was recorded primarily between 1970 and 1972, this isn't just a relic for Lynyrd Skynyrd fans. A triumphant but ironic final chapter, it measures the extent of the tragedy of the group's demise. The density of the guitars/drums/vocals interplay, and the raw edge of intensity that dominates everything here, are simply Lynyrd Skynyrd at their peak. While the naiveté of some of the album's political songs ("Lend a Helpin' Hand," "Things Goin' On") would normally date them, they serve here as examples of the forthright exposition of American working-class attitudes. "Was I Right or Wrong", had it been released earlier, might have become their anthem. The story is classic. Against his parents' wishes, a young rocker sets out to seek his fortune. His dreams come true, but when he returns home to see his folks (the people he most wanted to convince of his abilities), he learns they're dead. There's an archetypal starkness to this tale–comparable only to Bruce Springsteen's "Adam Raised a Cain" - that makes it hard to believe the song is only a fantasy. But Van Zant didn't even have a record contract when he wrote it. This is great music, not only for those who loved this group, but for everyone who's ever endured a painful, inarticulate relationship with his or her parents. It's exactly the sort of thing Lynyrd Skynyrd deserves to be remembered for...Dichter Nebel

Grand Funk - The 1971 Tour (Unreleased Live 1971)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of the 1970s' most successful hard rock bands in spite of critical pans and somewhat reluctant radio airplay (at first), Grand Funk Railroad built a devoted fan base with constant touring, a loud, simple take on the blues-rock power trio sound, and strong working-class appeal. The band was formed by Flint, Michigan guitarist/songwriter Mark Farner and drummer Don Brewer, both former members of a local band called Terry Knight and the Pack. They recruited former ? and the Mysterians' bassist Mel Schacher in 1968, and Knight retired from performing to become their manager, naming the group after Michigan's well-known Grand Trunk Railroad. They performed for free at the 1969 Atlanta Pop Festival, and their energetic, if not technically proficient, show led Capitol Records to sign them at once. While radio shied away from Grand Funk Railroad, the group's strong work ethic and commitment to touring produced a series of big-selling albums over the next few years; five of their eight releases from 1969 to 1972 went platinum, and the others all went gold. Meanwhile, Knight promoted the band aggressively, going so far as to rent a Times Square billboard to advertise Closer to Home, which turned out to be the band's first multi-platinum album in spite of a backlash from the rock press. However, Grand Funk Railroad fired Knight in March of 1972, who promptly sued; the band spent most of the year in a court battle that ended when they bought Knight out.

Keyboardist Craig Frost joined the group for the Phoenix LP at the end of 1972. Following that album, the band's name was officially shortened to Grand Funk, and the group finally scored a big hit single (number one, in fact) with the title track of the Todd Rundgren-produced We're an American Band. The follow-up, Shinin' On, contained another number one hit in a remake of Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion." However, following Grand Funk's next album, All the Girls in the World Beware!!, interest in the group began to wane. Reverting back to Grand Funk Railroad, they remained together in 1976 solely to work with producer Frank Zappa on Good Singin', Good Playin'. Farner left for a solo career, and the remainder of the band released an album as Flint with guitarist Billy Elworthy.

Grand Funk Railroad re-formed in 1981 with Dennis Bellinger on bass and released two albums; only Grand Funk Lives even managed to scrape the bottom of the charts. The group disbanded again, with Brewer and Frost joining Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band and Farner embarking on a new career as a contemporary Christian artist; his "Isn't It Amazing" was a number two gospel hit in 1988. In 1997, Grand Funk Railroad reunited once again to record a benefit album titled Bosnia; two years later, Capitol issued a three-disc box set retrospective, Thirty Years of Funk: 1969-1999.

Jethro Tull - Live at Montreux (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While it's called The Montreux Jazz Festival, it's always made clear from the very beginning that it's always been more than just jazz.
The 21st-century incarnation of Tull which, along with Barre, includes keyboardist Andrew Giddings, bassist Jonathan Noyce and drummer Doane Perry, is as flexible as any that's come before. Whether it's the elegant folksiness of "Life is a Long Song", the strange amalgam of "Fat Man", with Anderson on bouzouki, the pumping blues of "Some Day the Sun Won't Shine For You", on which Anderson proves he's still got his harmonica chops from This Was, or the more progressive leanings of "Hunting Girl", from "Songs from the Wood" album, Anderson's choice of younger band mates has clearly been influenced by a need for perhaps the most stylistically diverse version of Tull to date.
There are some welcome surprises. Tull pulls out "With You There to Help Me", from the largely overlooked Benefit, and it's both reverential and contemporary, with Anderson's flute soaring. His voice may have suffered from the ravages of time, but his flute playing clearly hasn't.
While the band says the first half of the show as acoustic, the second electric, it's not quite that clearly delineated. There's nothing acoustic about "Hunting Girl", which sits firmly between two instrumentals—Barre's Django Reinhardt-esque "Empty Café" and the buoyant and slightly Spanish "Eurology" from Rupi's Dance, which features Giddings' accordion alongside Anderson's lithe flute.
But the second half of the show is decidedly heavier, and also features more extended tunes, with the three Aqualung tracks and the episodic "Budapest", from the "Crest of a Knave" album, all turning up the heat. Whatever deficiencies might be there in Anderson's voice are made up for by the energy of his presence, his untarnished instrumental skills and the clean strength of the group. Barre has always managed to play a kind of intelligent metal when he kicks in the heavy distortion, and he remains a distinguishing asset to the band.
The album is testament to a group that, while having to adapt to a number of changes over the years, is still capable of putting on a fine show. Its glory days of releasing classic albums may be over, but with a set list covering its entire existence and continuing to reveal occasional surprises, it's a group that still has plenty of life and validity to it...Pepe Panzer

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Angel Station (1979) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is one of the best produced album in history. Amazing sound and sonic production. manfred has slowed down a bit and this is the closest u get to perfect symphonic rock. Angels at my Gate has extrodinary bass and back tracks and the moog solo is sterling...Gruben Lampe

This is a classic! For all you intelligent rock fans, this album is a must-have! I first listened to it from a friend's vinyl copy 19 years ago and it has never failed to amaze me all these years! If there's an album that comes close if not equal the great works of The Alan Parsons Projects' "Tales of Mystery & Imagination" or Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon," this enigmatic and hypnotic album is it! If the melodies and tunes take you to the heavens and the far reaches of space, stay calm. Angel Station will bring you back to earth. Thank you, Manfred Mann's Earth Band!...Manfred Mandel

Little River Band - Get Lucky (1990)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is an enormous improvement over the extremely tepid 'Monsoon', but it's still a long way off their best work.

Key to this is the fact that Graham Goble recovered from his brief dry spell, although the sudden appearance of a lot of material from writers outside the band also helps. Truth be told though, the only truly outstanding cut here is Glenn Shorrock's 'I Dream Alone'. 'If I Get Lucky' and 'Every Time I Turn Around' (co-written by Peter Beckett of Player fame, who soon after became an offical LRB member) are the other real highlights. None of the rest is bad, just comparatively unmemorable. The album was definitely a step in the right direction, sadly Goble soon decamped and LRB's recording career was effectively over. While it wasn't the best effort to go out on, fans will still find this well worth owning...Manfred Mandel

Little River Band - First Under The Wire (1979) (Remaster Edit 1996)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This was the last time this popular Australian band released an album that matched the earlier Sleeper Catcher and Diamantina Cocktail. With a mix of harmony-drenched pop tunes and unthreatening rockers, they appealed to a wide audience. This album features some of their most poignant lyrics. You can empathize with Glenn Shorrock when he earnestly sings about the albatross and the whales being his brothers in "Cool Change," this release's standout track. If you haven't heard "Lonesome Loser," you just weren't listening to AM radio in 1979... Rudy Rondo

Livin Blues - Hell's Session (1969) (Remaster Edit 2000)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Livin' Blues was, along with Cuby & The Blizzards, one of the main forces of Continental European blues at the end of the Sixties. Until 1967, the duo Nicko Christiansen (voc, perc, g) and John La Grand (harm) had only played acustic instrumenta, but switched to electric and formed Livin' Blues. American city blues was the source for their authentic, hard blues-rock on the vinyl debut "Hell's Session" (1969). They adapted songs by Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters and Little Walter. Permanently changing personal hindered the band on their way up to stardom. Especially the position of a drummer was often vacant. Founder member Cesar Zuiderwijk was surplanted by Dick Beekman, later came Johnny Le Jeune and Arjean Kamminga and finally Englishman Kenny Lamp (ex-Jellybread and ex-Keylargo). Second bassist was Ruud van Buuren. Producer of the first LP was former Golden Earring member Jaap Eggermont. Later British blues expert Mike Vernon produced the band. For three LPs, Livin' Blues played solid, technically perfect blues-rock. Focal point was Nicko Christiansen's roaring voice and Ted Oberg's excellent guitar technique. The fourth album "Ram Jam Josey" (1974) went into a different direction. The band switched to popular and timeless heavy rock, but still showing blues outlines. Thanks to the Dutch hit single "Boogie Woogie Woman", in 1973, the band was on the road to commercial success. Until then they hat lived of their reputation as a good live band and their cult following. But, despite hopeful signs of a bright future, the band got into interna' quarrel again and disbanded. Ted Oberg rivived Livin' Blues only a few months later with Indonesian John Fredriksz (voc), Cor van der Beek (dr) and his old Livin' Blues friend Henk Smitskamp (b, key). The new Livin' Blues team returned to classical blues roots, but in 1975/76, musical preferences had changed, nobody wanted to hear blues anymore. Livin' Blues ended on the club circuit and as festival opener...Babs Gouda

Ten Years After - Cricklewood Green (1970) (Remaster Edit 2002)

Cricklewood Green,offers the finest example of an explosive late sixties British blues band making the transision to middle seventies ephemeral rock,just as frontman Alvin Lee was inspired by the likes of John Mayall,Eric Clapton etc. many artists for years to come,would take their cue from this timeless and pivitol collection.Containing blues,hard driving and space exploring guitar solos,through to melodic,soulsearching acoustic work.It even boasts a Sfi-Fi number(listen carefully,you will hear some of the most wonderfully played acoustic solos you are ever ilkely to come across!), the first onemore… of it's kind I do believe!To any kind of listener who loves being awestruckby the power and honesty of blues/rock take my words for it, this album does not dissapoint...Gruben Lampe

Trapeze - You Are The Music...We're Just The Band (1972) (2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Recently replaced my old worn vinyl and what a delight to hear Glenn Hughes' expressive vocal chords again - he's one of the great "unsung" rock/soul vocalists along with Terry Reid and perhaps Jack Bruce - alongside Paul Rodgers (Free). It's a voice that hooks you with its raw power and rough edge, but also with its other smoother qualities and range. There are the great rockers here with Keeping Time, Loser and the title track but imbued with amazing funky rhythms from the small tight unit of Hughes (bass), mel galley (stunning on guitar) and dave holland (drums). there are also three amazinglymore… gentle soulful ballads that showcase the unexpected subtlety of trapeze - coast to coast, what is a woman's role and the exquisite will our love end. inspired use of BJ Cole on pedal steel, frank ricotti (vibes) and jimmy hastings (sax) are the perfect complement. the only thing that still grates with me is the dodgy falsetto of Feeling So Much Better Now which spoils that track. that apart it is a superb and (again) much played favourite...Dhar Jellinc
---------------------------------------------
Though they were best known for a kind of muscular funk rock, the band Trapeze always had a jazzy element, and on their third album it is the softer tunes that stand out. This isn't to say that there aren't some good rockers here, since the title tune and "Keepin' Time" are energetic and enjoyable. However it is on "Coast to Coast" and "What Is a Woman's Role" that the band really shines. This is partly because both are really good songs, partly because both benefit from some inspired sax and vibes work from guests Jimmy Hastings and Frank Ricotti. Bassist Glenn Hughes takes the lead vocal on most tracks, and is very effective as long as he stays in his low range; on the rock tracks he uses his higher register, which tends to have a squealing or screechy tone. Those who only know Hughes from his subsequent work with Deep Purple may be surprised to hear his warm, soulful work on this disc, which was his last with Trapeze...Rudy Rondo

Barclay James Harvest - Face To Face (1987) (1992)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's not impossible for an old progressive rock band to make an honorable transition into '80s pop. Yes, Genesis, and the Moody Blues all pulled it off, though with varying degrees of artistic success. But when a once-intelligent band has three song titles on one side featuring the word "Love," you know they're just phoning it in. "Panic" might be the worst track ever recorded by BJH, although to be fair it works wonderfully as an unintentional parody of hair metal. The track, "Guitar Blues," retains some slight spark of creative musicianship. The album in my opinion is as good as Welcome to the Show. Instrumentely good by a band that sadly never got decent recognition. Brilliant!..Robert Hoffnung

While many think of Foreigner as a studio-slick rock group, longtime fans know the truth that this classic rock outfit was quite a live act in their prime. If you are a fan of Foreigner, or classic rock in general, This is a must have! Ive listened to this CD countless times, and it still rocks! Every song on here shows the passion and tallent of each line-up since 1977. There are a few songs thrown in that were not even Foreigner hits, and they make them their own. (Not Fade Away by Buddy Holly) And others. Its worth the money, listen to it loud.. Rainer Zuphall

From the start of this Album to the last bar excellent, no fillers -all is inspired. Eric Bell, Brian Downey and Mr Lynott Excel and is an example of The Early Thin Lizzy period, have seen some people write on here that they enjoy only early or late Lizzy but to me the songwrting and the sheer artistry is present in all that greets yoru grateful ears and years of abuse of those organs has not dampened my enthusiasm, Bad Reputation was one of the first albums I ever bought and my collection is just about complete, I wore my 'Bad Reputation' LP out thank goodness for CD's!!! this is certainly onemore… of my favorite Albums, The Hero is mystical, Little girl in bloom -interesting and clever and the outro guitar solo superb, Broken dream, WOW! through my life I have come back to Lynott many times and found renewed interest and undertstanding for his beliefs values and lyrics and I still find pleasure in the skill of the musicians involved, Fav album?? perhaps Nightlife? or maybe Bad Rep, Or Black Rose? or Jailbreak? or.......... got to go and play one now!..Manfred Mandel

Grateful Dead - From The Mars Hotel (1974) (Remaster Edit 2006)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Grateful Dead made their reputation on the road with their live shows, and they always strled to capture that magic in the studio. From the Mars Hotel, while not a classic, represents one of their better studio albums. Jerry Garcia sounds engaged throughout and takes the vocal reigns for most of the songs on the album — although he's not the most gifted vocalist, he proves himself able and versatile. He sings the rollicking opener, "U.S. Blues," with a tongue-in-cheek seriousness that gives the political song an edge, and he lends emotional sincerity to the atmospheric ballad "Chinamore… Doll." Garcia shines on guitar during the funk workout "Scarlet Begonias," but the ensemble work is best displayed on the album's centerpiece, "Unbroken Chain." During this song, all the musicians are allowed to shine: Phil Lesh, the bassist and songwriter, provides tender vocals over a piano-based arrangement while the bridge allows the guitars and drums to stretch out in classic Grateful Dead style. This album is highly recommended for fans, but casual listeners should start with American Beauty or Workingman's Dead...Dhar Jellinc

Grateful Dead - Anthem Of The Sun (1968) (Remaster Edit 2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As the second long-player by the Grateful Dead, Anthem of the Sun (1968) pushed the limits of both the music as well as the medium. General dissatisfaction with their self-titled debut necessitated the search for a methodology to seamlessly juxtapose the more inspired segments of their live performances with the necessary conventions of a single LP. Since issuing their first album, the Dead welcomed lyricist Robert Hunter into the fold — freeing the performing members to focus on the execution and taking the music to the next level. Another addition was second percussionist Mickey Hart,more… whose methodical timekeeping would become a staple in the Dead's ability to stop on the proverbial rhythmic dime. Likewise, Tom Constanten (keyboards) added an avant-garde twist to the proceedings with various sonic enhancements that were more akin to John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen than anything else coming from the burgeoning Bay Area music scene. Their extended family also began to incorporate folks like Dan Healy — whose non-musical contributions and innovations ranged from concert PA amplification to meeting the technical challenges that the band presented off the road as well. On this record Healy's involvement cannot be overstated, as the band were essentially given carte blanche and simultaneous on-the-job training with regards to the ins and outs of the still unfamiliar recording process. The idea to create an aural pastiche from numerous sources — often running simultaneously — was a radical concept that allowed consumers worldwide to experience a simulated Dead performance firsthand. One significant pattern which began developing saw the band continuing to refine the same material that they were concurrently playing live night after night prior to entering the studio. The extended "That's It for the Other One" suite is nothing short of a psychedelic roller coaster. The wild ride weaves what begins as a typical song into several divergent performances — taken from tapes of live shows — ultimately returning to the home base upon occasion, presumably as a built-in reality check. Lyrically, Bob Weir (guitar/vocals) includes references to their 1967 pot bust ("...the heat came 'round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day") as well as the band's spiritual figurehead Neal Cassidy ("...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel on a bus to never ever land"). Although this version smokes from tip to smouldering tail, the piece truly developed a persona all its own and became a rip-roaring monster in concert. The tracks "New Potato Caboose" and Weir's admittedly autobiographically titled "Born Cross-Eyed" are fascinatingly intricate side trips that had developed organically during the extended work's on-stage performance life. "Alligator" is a no-nonsense Ron "Pigpen" McKernan workout that motors the second extended sonic collage on Anthem of the Sun. His straight-ahead driving blues ethos careens headlong into the Dead's innate improvisational psychedelia. The results are uniformly brilliant as the band thrash and churn behind his rock-solid lead vocals. Musically, the Dead's instrumental excursions wind in and out of the primary theme, ultimately ending up in the equally frenetic "Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks)." Although the uninitiated might find the album unnervingly difficult to follow, it obliterated the pretension of the post-Sgt. Pepper's "concept album" while reinventing the musical parameters of the 12" LP medium. [The expanded and remastered edition included in the Golden Road (1965-1973) (2001) box set contains a live performance from August 23, 1968, at the Shrine in Los Angeles. This miniset features an incendiary medley of "Alligator" and "Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks)" concluding with over four minutes of electronic feedback.]..Manfred Mandel

Ian Hunter - Welcome To The Club (1994)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

At seven, in 1973, Ian Hunter & Mott the Hoople entered my consciousness as the first thing i remember seeing on TV (other than Andy Pandy and Parsley the Lion) and they kind of stuck there. Awareness became interest and then admiration as the extent of Ian Hunter's songwriting talent became apparent in my later teens. 'Old' friends who'd caught Mott in concert in the 70s invariably enthused wildly (and smugly - having found an aspect of relative age that they could feel good about!)over these shows. Jealous as hell, i had to survive on MTH Live on Broadway (1974) and Hunter's Welcome tomore… the Club (1980) and leave the visuals/atmospherics to my imagination.This record, unlike Mott's Live album, manages to capture some of the essence of the live experience: you get the feeling of the crowd being there and 'close in'. Happily, where some live albums sound like they've been recorded over a phone line from a far-off continent, the sound on Welcome to the Club is particularly up-front and meaty, yet generally well-mixed, too. You get the benefit of the puffing and panting, grunting and grinding and tonsil tearing in all their glory, just as if you were in the front few rows. Add to that the awesome 8 or 9 piece band Hunter had, including Mick Ronson, of course, and you have 2 of the 3 essential ingredients for one hell of a record.Having passed with flying colours as an example of how to get the live sound down, the material in Hunter's set of the period provides a grand overview of his adventures in rock. (The third ingredient for one hell of a record.) Spanning early Mott track and his latest contemporary - and possibly best - album You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic, most of the headlines are here: Dudes; Memphis; Once Bitten; Irene Wilde. Other material is less well known but reflects the content of Hunter's 4 solo albums from '75-'80 for the most part. 'Standing in My Light' and 'Bastard' are creepingly stealthy at first, before pouncing from the speakers and grabbing you. All the material is delivered in the go for it vocal style Ian Hunter typifies: not a singer's singer like Freddie Mercury but delivering his vocals as they were intended, high notes and all, unlike Freddie... .Four words describe this record: quality; verve; power and panache. Put it on, turn it up and lie on the floor, literally soaking in the vibe. A classic of its genre.Having made do with this and the MTHoople live album for a few years...Bob Hope

Deep Purple - Fireball (1971) (25th. Anniversary Edition-1996)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of Deep Purple's four indispensable albums (the others being In Rock, Machine Head, and Burn), 1971's Fireball saw the band broadening out from the no-holds-barred hard rock direction of the previous year's cacophonous In Rock. Metal machine noises introduced the sizzling title track — an unusually compact but explosively tight group effort on which Jon Lord's organ truly shined. The somewhat tiring repetitions of "No No No" actually threatened to drop the ball next, but the fantastic single "Strange Kind of Woman" nimbly caught and set it rolling again, just in time for the innuendomore…-encrusted hilarity of "Anyone's Daughter," featuring one of singer Ian Gillan's first (and still best) humorous storylines to go with one of guitarist Ritchie Blackmore's most uncharacteristic, bluesiest performances ever. "The Mule" opened the vinyl album's second side with what is perhaps Purple's finest instrumental, and on the hyper-extended "Fools," the bandmembers proved they could flirt with progressive rock without plunging off its cliff (although the song could probably have done without its drawn-out middle section). And closing the album was the exceptional "No One Came," where intertwining instrumental lines locked together beautifully, Gillan wove another entertaining yarn that was part autobiography and part Monty Python, and the often underrated skills of drummer Ian Paice helped the song sound so unreservedly fresh and intuitive that one could almost be convinced the band had winged it on the spot. Sure, the following year's Machine Head would provide Deep Purple with their commercial peak, but on Fireball, the formidable quintet was already firing on all cylinders.

John Miles - Rebel (1976) (Remaster Edit 2003)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is John Miles' debut album, originally released for Decca on vinyl. It opens with the all-time classic "Music", which all too often is the only piece people know of. However, the album is full of imaginative and powerful songs, as well as a range of different styles. Holding everything together is John's superb voice, which has been used by other artists over the years, notably as part of Tina Turner's band - it is just so versatile! John Miles is also one of our most under-rated guitarists - just listen to the blistering solo in Pull The Damn Thing Down, itself one of the high points ofmore… the album with its ironic lyric. If you don't have this album, buy a copy - you won't be disappointed! Then get some more of his material - he just gets better and better!

Status Quo - Ma Kelly’s Greasy Spoon 1970 (1989)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Woe betide the psychedelic groover who picked up the third album by Status Quo, dreaming of further picturesque matchstick messages! A mere three hits in a long three years had completely exhausted the bandmembers' patience with the whimsy of yore, and their ears had long since turned in other directions. It was the age, after all, of Canned Heat's relentless boogie and Black Sabbath's blistered blues, and when the Quo's first new single of 1970, the lazy throb of "Down the Dustpipe," proved that the record-buying public wasn't averse to a bit more down-home rocking, their future course was set. Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon allies one of the most evocative titles in rock album history to one of the most familiar sights in a rock band's iconography, the cheap roadside café — crusty ketchup, leafy tea, an overflowing ashtray, and Ma Kelly herself, cigarette clenched between unsmiling lips and a face that has seen it all and didn't like any of it. Neither do the album's contents disturb her glowering visage. From the opening trundle of "Spinning Wheel Blues" and onto the closing, lurching medley of "Is It Really Me"/"Gotta Go Home," the most underrated disc in Status Quo's entire early catalog eschewed the slightest nod in the direction of the band's past — even "Dustpipe" didn't make the cut. (It has since been incorporated among the four bonus tracks appending the album's 1998 remastering as have "In My Chair", "Gerdundula" and an alternate version of "Junior's Wailing") But six years on, when recording their live album, the Quo were still dipping back to "Junior's Wailing," the midpoint in the greasy spoon experience, and an expressively rocking archetype for all they would later accomplish. The dark shuffle of "Lazy Poker Blues," too, unleashed specters that the band would be referencing in future days, including the boogie piano that made 1974's "Break the Rules" seem such a blast from the past. Compared to the albums that would follow, Ma Kelly is revealed as little more than a tentative blueprint for the Quo's new direction. At the time, however, it was a spellbinding shock, perhaps the last one that the Quo ever delivered. You should remember that when you play it.
--------------------
The most obscure and definately the best of the many quo albums. It is rammed full of some of the best hard driven blues boogie ever recorded. From the opener, the footstomping 'Spinning Wheel Blues', through a belting version of the fleetwood Mac number 'Lazy Poker Blues' to the closing jam on 'Is It Really Me', this album proves that the rock and roll grand dads of today were once a great band.

Spirit - Spirit Of 76 2CD 1975 (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This 1975 release on Mercury has Randy California and Ed Cassidy's names imprinted boldly on the cover as Spirit, and the 26 songs -- starting with "America the Beautiful/The Times They Are a Changin'" and concluding with "The Star Spangled Banner" -- are more than just a sly tribute to the bicentennial. They are the most fluid and satisfying statement by the California/Cassidy version of the band, who would be together for another 20 years before California's untimely passing. As ethereal and icy as Feedback, the album Cassidy recorded with the Stahely brothers, there are all sorts of hidden meanings projected throughout this double-vinyl LP. Randy California gives more than a few nods to his work with Jimi Hendrix -- covers of "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Hey Joe" are two of Hendrix's more notable and triumphant revisions -- while "The Star Spangled Banner" has a smart vocal, separating it from California's more famous ex-bandmate's Woodstock instrumental rendition.

This double-record set was the first of four albums by Spirit for the Mercury label in the mid-'70s, all released between 1975-1977. This is the second album Ed Cassidy and Randy California put together after Cassidy recorded the Feedback disc in 1972 for Epic. The 1973 album came out in 1981 as Potatoland on Line Records in Germany and is not usually put in proper chronological order. What is musically interesting about this is that Randy California on Spirit of '76 sounds like the 1972 Stahely brothers version of Spirit. No, the jazz is not here, but his use of acoustic guitar and effects on his electric guitar makes for less bite and more soothing, spacy sounds. It is arguably the best full album the Randy California/Ed Cassidy Spirit recorded without the other original members. A terrific anthem, "One by One," was recorded in 1993-1994 and might be the duo's best song, but this album remains a major achievement for Randy California, a long and elaborate vision put over four sides of vinyl. The tragedy is that no hit single obtained airplay that could have given this project wider exposure. There are more covers than usual too, and unique arrangements -- the pair's understanding of "Happy," for example. It is interesting that producer Jimmy Miller played the drums and recorded the Rolling Stones' version of "Happy" with Keith Richards, with their Exile on Main St. demo track becoming a hit. Drummer Ed Cassidy takes Miller's role, with Randy California being Richards, and they do a nice, mutated version still faithful to the spirit of the original Keith Richards jam with his producer. The depth and intrigue built into the grooves and packaging of Spirit of '76 was a fine direction for this Spirit, and it is too bad Randy California felt so bitter about the industry to lose focus. As Jimi Hendrix kept the recorders rolling, California should have done the same thing over the years, capturing his live magic, seeking out that audience the Grateful Dead tuned into. Spirit of '76 is the best example of California veering off into different directions and coming up with satisfying sounds. Two albums later, Mark Andes would bring his brother, Matt Andes, from Jo Jo Gunne into the fold and re-form with Cassidy, California, and John Lockefor 1976's Farther Along. But that would be a short-lived fusion of multiple songwriting talents. On Spirit of '76, Randy California has all systems go to paint spacy pictures like "Urantia," or the very interesting take on Rufus Thomas' "Walking the Dog." The covers of three of the songs Hendrix covered would remain in the Spirit set for the rest of their days, and they are here in elegant studio versions. Spirit of '76 remains the key to understanding the group who toured as Spirit for the better part of the three decades that the group existed, the stepdad and the guitar prodigy on their own. It's an offbeat work of art that works just beautifully. ~ Joe Viglione, All Music Guide

Fleetwood Mac - Rumors (Deluxe Edition - 2 CD) (2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I have owned Rumours before, both in the LP format and the original CD format. Obviously this album has been a favourite of mine for a long time, with a slight more understanding of the tension involved in making it as the years have passed by.What struck me, however, by hearing this new re-mastered version was the immense sound quality. Listening to Dreams the bass becomes so vibrant and alive with Stevie Nick's voice backed up with incredible harmonies with the addition of crisp guitar sounds and thumping drumming. On the next track, Never Going Back Again the guitar is spread in the mix givingmore… the listener a feeling of actually being involved with the playing. Much of the same can be described by most of the other songs on the album, making me for my part re-discovering it again. Never before had I noticed how great the production was, not only in regards of the sound quality but also how it was mixed, both simple but yet innovative.I took my old CD to compare the two versions, the hypothesis being that maybe this great sound had simply eluded me some years ago. The difference was, however, similar to hearing a worn cassette tape and a regular CD. The separation of instruments was not to be heard, a lack of depth was evident and the mix was muffled as if one were listening to a worn LP.There is also added material. Silver Springs, a single not included on the original version, has been tacked between what before was side A and B. A fine song and its odd inclusion actually does keep the flow of the album intact (I believe having it at the end would spoil the fine ending of the original). There is also a bonus disk consisting of demos of the songs. It is interesting hearing these demos, one can hear how good the simple versions are but yet how delicately Fleetwood Mac improved them in the studio. Of particular note is Brushes which is only the guitar playing of what became Never Going Back Again. One must, however, make sure to press the stop button before some jam session at the end of the disc begin, those are only for the most devoted. Thus from the standpoint of sound quality, this re-mastered version of Rumours is in my view a great buy. The bonus CD is a welcome addition and the artwork accompanying this version does this great album justice.

In 1975, a pair of hard-living, hard-rocking British blues rockers went eye-to-eye with a pair of sensitive L.A. singer-songwriter types -- and the rockers blinked. The bluesmen were Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, whose band, Fleetwood Mac, had first recorded in 1967. The Californians were Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, a couple romantically and musically, who'd recorded an album as Buckingham Nicks. The two pairs, along with McVie's wife, Christine (a respected singer and songwriter in her own right who joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 and then married John), teamed up and produced an album far more California sunshine rock than British blues. Following the grand success of their debut, Fleetwood Mac, the McVies broke up, as did Buckingham and Nicks, and the resulting romantic pressure-cooker -- coupled with Buckingham's flowering production talents -- produced Rumours, a tour de force that became one of the biggest-selling records ever made. "Here you go again," breathed Stevie Nicks near the start of the record, "you say you want your freedom." The emotional weariness captured in that line suffuses the album, notwithstanding the upbeat melodies and pristine, daring production. You also get Christine McVie's hit "Don't Stop" -- later a campaign theme song for Bill Clinton -- and arguably Buckingham's greatest track, a drum-driven cry at the death of love called "Go Your Own Way." Bill Wyman

Dr. Feelgood - Looking Back (5 CD Remaster Edit 1995)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Dr. Feelgood is a British pub rock band, which was formed in mid 1971. The name of the band, Dr. Feelgood, is slang for heroin, or for doctors who are prepared to over prescribe drugs. In 1962 the name was adopted by the American blues pianist and singer Willie Perryman (also known as "Piano Red") who recorded his song "Dr Feel-Good" as "Dr Feelgood & The Interns". The song was covered by several British beat groups including The Pirates, who used it as the B-side to one of their singles and it is from there, allegedly, that it was picked up by the band.

Featuring 101 tracks on five CDs. This is a pretty good overview of the Feelgood’s career, covering 19 albums in 20 years with Lee Brilleaux in the lead. The first four discs contain all of the Feelgood’s hits from their entire career, while the bonus disc includes rare & unreleased tracks plus interviews with Lee Brilleaux, Wilko Johnson & The Big Figure.

Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac (1975) (Remaster Edit 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Given their monumental legacy, it's hard to imagine that the so-called "classic edition" of Fleetwood Mac essentially came together casually over chips and margaritas at an L.A. eatery; the then-obscure duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks (whose own mid-'70s debut album had initially gone almost straight to the cut-out bins) became the crucial axis of the legendary band without so much as a formal audition. As the eponymous title sests, the 1975 Mac realignment seems like a fresh start, though tracks like Christine McVie's smooth-jazz inflected "Warm Ways" hearken back to the Bob Welchmore…/Bare Trees/Heroes Are Hard to Find era. But it's Buckingham's compelling, updated take on '60s California folk-pop, informed by the mystique of Nicks's proto-New Age song-sorceress presumptions, that breathed new life into the veteran, chameleonic band on now-familiar songs like "Monday Morning" and "Rhiannon." His chemistry with McVie is no less powerful, yielding such Mac staples as their collaboration "World Turning" and suffusing her "Over My Head" with nervous, insistent guitar rhythms. This deluxe, remastered edition features the significantly different single mixes of "Say You Love Me," "Rhiannon," "Over My Head," and "Blue Letter" (the latter previously unissued), as well as the moody, also unreleased studio workout "Jam #2." Parke Puterbaugh's newly penned liner notes offer concise, thoughtful insights into the genesis of one of rock's greatest, if most unlikely, rebirths...Robert Hoffnung

T.Rex - Futuristic Dragon (1976) (2CD Deluxe Edit 2002)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The most blatantly, and brilliantly, portentous of Marc Bolan's albums since the transitional blurring of boundaries that was Beard of Stars, almost seven years before, Futuristic Dragon opens on a wave of unrelenting feedback, guitars, and bombast, setting an apocalyptic mood for the record which persists long after that brief (two minutes) overture is over. Indeed, even the quintessential bop of the succeeding "Jupiter Liar" is irrevocably flavored by what came before, dirty guitars churning beneath a classic Bolan melody, and the lyrics a spiteful masterpiece. But if the other tunes pursue Bolan's new-found fascination for pomp over pop with barely disguised glee, he wasn't above slipping the odd joke into the brew to remind us that he knew what he was doing. "Theme for a Dragon" is an all-but Wagnerian symphonic instrumental -- with the sound of screaming teenyboppers as its backdrop, with the punchline lurking further afield, among the handful of obvious hits which he also stirred in. The first of these, the big-budget ballad "Dreamy Lady," scored even before the rest of the album was complete. It was followed by the idiotically contagious "New York City," a piece of pure pop nonsense genius which effortlessly returned him to the British Top 20. And when he followed that up with the rhythm and punk swagger of "I Love to Boogie," few people would deny that Bolan was on the way back up...D. Thompson

The phenomenally popular and influential T.Rex spearheaded the glam-rock movement, a genre owing everything to its quintessential superstar, Marc Bolan. Rivaled only by Bowie, whose own glam period followed in their flamboyant footsteps, Bolan and T.Rex created an incredible vibe and sound whose legacy lives. Driven by primal grooves, effortless hooks, trippy vocals, and deliciously fat guitar riffs, their music was both infused with hippie spirituality and raw sexuality-a rich, ripe, sonic delight both primitive and evolved. While their music defined an era, their irresistible grooves are timeless, and Bolan's later, more experimental tracks, marrying pop genius with creative expansion and proto-punk power, underscore his groundbreaking artistry...D.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Nuthin' Fancy (1975) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Skynyrd did something very early on in their career that very few bands do. They released an AMAZING first album, and then followed it with a just as equally AMAZING second album (Pronounced, and Second Helping respectively.) With these two records the southern Skynyrd boys could have called it quits and still went down as legends, but fortunately MCA demanded more records.
Skynyrds third album NUTHIN FANCY, is not the absolute triumph that the first two albums were (perhaps the band recognized this when giving it the title?) but it ain't no waste of resource either.
It was 1975, and rock musicmore… was generally getting to be louder and louder all around. Hard rock bands were taking ques from the metal pioneers and cranking up the sound. This can easily be noticed on the opening track SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL and the albums first single ON THE HUNT. These songs lose a little of the heart felt personalities of the first records but are both completely pisser, and kept the band well seated at the front of the seventies Hard Rock board.
The rest of the album takes on a more down home southern style, than even the first two. Closer to an Allman Brothers feel than a Skynyrd feel, but again, this is not a bad thing. The bluesy ballad CHEATIN WOMAN is memorable, as is the moving, tonky, WHISKEY- ROCK-A-ROLLER. Other goods on this plate as well.
Some may say that this is nothing but an album of filler SKYNYRD stuff, but I can't agree with that. This is great stuff, just not as legendary as what preceeded it. Its classic rock music, from a classic rock band, its just that it prides itself in bein' NUTHIN FANCY.
I gave this one four and three fourth stars... but we can just say I gave it five...Pepe Panzer

Fleetwood Mac - Tusk(1979) (2CD Deluxe Edition 2004)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If your personal turmoil and professional musical strles suddenly yielded more success and money than you could ever imagine, what would you do? A lesser '70s rock band recorded Don't Look Back; Fleetwood Mac made Tusk. Whether it was a firm, middle-finger salute to the weighty commercial expectations foisted upon them in the wake of Rumours' burgeoning successes or a restless creative response to the then-shifting tides of pop music taste, this 1979 20-track double album remains the most consistently adventurous project any incarnation of the veteran band ever attempted. This remastered, doublemore…-disc deluxe edition's 21-track bonus disc of demos and outtakes seems to argue for the latter, new wave-fueled influences, bringing together a dizzying range of performances that underscore everything from Lindsey Buckingham's Brian Wilson jones (the warm, inventive harmonies of the band's dreamy outtake of the Beach Boys chestnut "Farmer's Daughter") to Christine McVie's knack for jazz-bluesy heat ("One More Time," which ultimately became "Over and Over") and pop hooks ("Think About Me") and Stevie Nicks's pop-goddess hoodoo (deliciously spare, fragile versions of "Sara," "Storms," and "Sisters of the Moon"). Most of the demos and outtakes here are imbued with a funky, loose-limbed spirit that offer new insight into their creation. But, as on the finished album, it's Buckingham's endlessly inventive creative spirit that dominates, from the chunky-rhythmed "Can't Walk out of Here" and "Out on the Road" (which became "The Ledge" and "That's Enough For Me," respectively) to three separate early recordings that chronicle the evolution of "I Know I'm Not Wrong." Rumours may be ubiquitous; Tusk remains unique...Robert Hoffnung

Fleetwood Mac-The Dance - Live (1997)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fleetwood Mac's 1997 reunion could have been the kind of event that works on video-- great concert, after all--but ends up not paying off in repeated listenings in album form. But The Dance, while concentrating on the group's 1970s and 1980s triumphs, finds the Mac energy running high and impassioned. New songs like "Temporary One" and "Bleed to Love Her" are fine additions to the canon, while "Everywhere" and "Say You Love Me" both breeze along the way you remember them and manage a reinvention in the live setting. The dark side of the vision is accounted for with Lindsey Buckingham's crazedmore… solo "Big Love", but best of all is "Silver Springs", wherein Stevie Nicks tears the roof off the sucker and sets fire to the rubble. --Rickey Wright

10cc - Collected (3CD Remaster Set 2008)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2008 three CD collection from the British Art-Rockers featuring tracks that span their entire career, including their first pre-10cc hit as a recording unit (Hotlegs) right up through post-10cc hits from Godley & Creme and Graham Gouldman. From the late '60s right up through the early '80s, 10cc created a fabulous body of work that continues to grow in stature with each passing year. With hits like 'The Dean And I', 'Rubber Bullets', 'I'm Not In Love', 'The Things We Do For Love' and others, they continue to have their music played all over the world even though they no longer exist as a band. Contains 51 tracks including songs from their 1991 reunion album, rare Graham Gouldman singles, B-sides, all the hits and more. Universal.

This mammoth three-disc collection from mercurial English rock outfit 10cc covers an awful lot of ground, from their 1970 inception through the group's numerous solo projects in the '80s. Fans looking for something with a little more bite than 1997's 15-track The Very Best of 10cc, or those looking to get a handle on the group of artists responsible for both "Neanderthal Man" and Godley & Creme's "Cry," would do well to add this eclectic overview to their collections...R.L.
