Rush meets MTV!
My favorite Trick studio album.
Rolling Stones Records
Tattoo You was released 35 years ago today. This was my first Stones record; it’s still my favorite.
The Dark Side of the Moon
Perhaps more than any other album, Dark Side has been re-issued, re-mastered, and re-packaged. Re-releases include Ultradisc, Gold CD, Anniversary edition, Boxed Set, and 180 Gram Vinyl version.
This is the original 1973 LP version and it’s perfect as it is.
The cover photo on the LP version of “Vs.” is more content sheep than the CD version’s angry sheep.
MASTERPIECE. That is all.
The Principle of Moments
Es Paranza / Atlantic Records
Released 33 years ago this week, this was Robert Plant‘s second solo album and scored a big hit with one of my favorite tunes, “Big Log.” Guitarist Robbie Blunt sounds ridiculously like Jimmy Page here!
We’re all alright.
1962-1966 and 1967-1970
(Also known as The Red Album and The Blue Album)
What was the biggest band of the 1970s? The Bee Gees? The Eagles? Led Zeppelin?
Nope…The Beatles ruled, even though they broke up in 1970.
If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, you probably didn’t first listen to the fab four on the original iconic albums or am radio like our friends from the 60s did. You probably had one or both of these gems.
Columbia Records / EMI
This 4-record LP box set contains live shows recorded in London and Rome on from the Division Bell era lineup. The CD version has a pulsing red LED light on the spine which lasted a couple of years. But this vinyl set has a large hardcover book of in-concert shots.
