Michael Jackson Vinyl Records

With the passing of Michael Jackson, an musical legend and era has ended. You didn’t have to really like Michael Jackson or his music, but you had to respect what he accomplished in his musical career. My brothers and I all remember where we were when we first saw the Thriller video. It was in […]

Led Zeppelin – 1 Vinyl Record

Led Zeppelin is one of those bands that I just don’t listen to very often. I haven’t played this record in probably over 2 or 3 years. Don’t get me wrong, I like Zeppelin, but they are a band that has a few songs that get massively overplayed by classic rock radio stations. Led Zeppelin’s […]

John Cougar Mellencamp – Scarecrow on Vinyl LP

I love John Cougar Mellencamp, or John Mellencamp, or John Cougar, whichever you choose. My wife loves him to. He writes great American rock music; music born in the heartland of the US. This album gets its name from the title track “Rain on the Scarecrow”, which is about farms that have been in families […]

Yes – Relayer Album on Vinyl

I pulled out some Yes yesterday. I really love prog (progressive) music, new and old. Yes is one of those bands that just broke barriers and paved the way for whole genres of music to come. As a musician, prog music gives me what I want, as it is technical, emotional, experimental, and a whole […]

Billy Joel – An Innocent Man on Record Album

This is one of my albums by Billy Joel. As a pianist, I think that I’m supposed to love the song Piano Man more than anything else, but I don’t. I’m sick of hearing it by every hack pianist in the world. An Innocent Man had some great songs, such as “Uptown Girl”, “The Longest […]

Coverdale Page on Vinyl Record

About 15 years ago, this album came out. I still remember hearing it on the radio, as it got a lot of airplay. However, it took a long time to actually hear who it was. David Coverdale of Whitesnake and Deep Purple, and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. Great combination. I think they really had […]

Emerson Lake & Palmer – Brain Salad Surgery Album on Vinyl

As a keyboard player, I love Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Keith Emerson is a phenomenal pianist and composer, and it shows on this album, Brain Salad Surgery. Also check out my post on ELP’s first album, Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Yes, the title is a little different, but don’t let it scare you. It is […]

The Biggest Record Show in the World. The Last Record Store.

Ok, so maybe I’m a little behind the curve here, but I just saw that there is a record convention in Austin, Texas that is the biggest in the world. The Austin Record Convention has been meeting since 1981, brings in over 300 dealers, and over 1 million records, tapes, CD’s, and even an 8-track […]
