Journey – Frontiers on Vinyl Record Album

I have already talked about the Journey album Escape, so here is Frontiers, which was the next album released by Journey after Escape in 1983. Frontiers was Journey’s second biggest selling album. I am not a big fan of American Idol. I am one of those people who watch the auditions just to see how […]

Rush – Moving Pictures Album on Vinyl

I have always been a moderate fan of Rush. I say moderate, because regular Rush fans (usually drummers) tend to be extremely passionate about them. Rush is one of those bands that dabbled in progressive music, but never fully became progressive, especially in their later years. This album, though, is considered to be an essential […]

Billy Squier – Don’t Say No Vinyl Record

Here is a staple of classic rock radio. Billy Squier’s ‘The Stroke’ has been played and played so much, it is almost one of those songs you start to tune out. However, this doesn’t change the fact that it is a good song, and a great album. The Stroke went to #3 on the Mainstream […]

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 […]

Ted Nugent – Cat Scratch Fever on Vinyl LP

Yes! You gotta love Uncle Ted. I love his music, and crazy enough, agree almost totally with his political views. But this blog isn’t about politics, it’s about music, and I don’t think anybody loves playing music as much as Ted Nugent. From playing with The Amboy Dukes, solo, Damn Yankees, and then solo again, […]

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 […]

Richard Wright – Wet Dream Vinyl LP

Since my power was out due to Hurricane Ike (even up in Ohio), I was unable to write about the passing of Richard Wright. I have the album ‘Wet Dream’ by him, and I agree with my old record dealer; Richard Wright’s album had more of that Pink Floyd Sound than a lot of the […]

ZZ Top – Eliminator Record Album

All right, time for some good hard rock. Eliminator by ZZ Top is now at Diamond status for sales. It’s not surprising as this album rocks. There are great songs such as ‘Gimme All Your Lovin” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Legs”. You can buy this album by ZZ Top at Musicstack. Eliminator is the 8th […]

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 […]

Billy Thorpe – Children of the Sun – A Vinyl Classic

Yes, I own a vinyl copy of Billy Thorpe’s Children of the Sun. I love this song. It is still a radio staple, although not to the level that it once was. Billy Thorpe had big success in his native Australia, but here in the US, we really only know him for this one album, […]
