Procol Harum – Live on Vinyl Record

This is an interesting album. Up until this time (1972), many people thought of Procol Harum as a one hit wonder with their hit song “Whiter Shade of Pale”. When they decided to do this album, guitarist Robin Trower quit the band because he did not want to play with an orchestra again. What was […]

Jackson Browne – Running on Empty Vinyl Album

Running on Empty by Jackson Browne is a phenomenal album. It was nominated for a Grammy, but didn’t win. I don’t really care about that. Grammy’s and Oscar’s and all those awards are worth nothing to me. I’m not being snobbish, but just because something wins doesn’t mean it’s good; and if it doesn’t win, […]

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 […]

Pink Floyd – Atom Heart Mother on 200 Gram Virgin Vinyl

Atom Heart Mother is, well, I was going to say one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums, but I can’t say that. I love Pink Floyd, and to say that this is my favorite, I just can’t do that. All of their albums have something that makes them great. However, this is one of my […]

Journey – Escape Album on LP

Journey is one of those great 80’s rock bands that people either love or hate. Personally, I love Journey, otherwise I wouldn’t have their album. You can buy this album at Musicstack. I have also recently posted about Journey – Frontiers album. This was actually referred to as the worst number 1 album ever by […]

Van Halen Self Titled Debut on Vinyl LP

All right, time for some rock. Nobody rocks like Van Halen, even Van Halen (Hagar era) can’t touch them. Sorry to those Sammy Hagar fans out there. I like his stuff, but it just doesn’t do it for me like Van Halen with David Lee Roth. Released in 1978, this album has made it past […]

Cream – Disraeli Gears on 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl Record

When I was at the record shop the other day, I saw a great classic album that I immediately picked up. Cream – Disraeli Gears on 180 gram virgin vinyl. Sweet! It was brand new, unopened on 180 gram vinyl! I was surprised to see it their, as the owner didn’t have a lot of […]

U2 – The Joshua Tree 20th Anniversary Remastered, Reissued Vinyl Record

I have this album. Well, the original at least. It has been played a lot. A whole lot. So you can imagine that the sound quality has been degraded over the years. I’d love to have this new one by U2. I thought that I should talk about The Joshua Tree since it will be […]

Supertramp – Breakfast in America

Today’s record is “Breakfast in America” by Supertramp. I love this album. Of course, I guess I say I love every album I have, but that’s beside the point. “The Logical Song” is one of my all-time favorite songs. This is a great album, you can buy it and find out for yourself at MusicStack. […]
