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 […]

Christmas with Johnny Mathis on Vinyl Album

Merry Christmas! Since it is now December and my wife has been playing Christmas music nonstop for almost two months now, I figured I should put up a Christmas album. My wife loves Johnny Mathis. He does have a very distinctive voice and way of singing. It’s very smooth. This was actually released in 1963 […]

The Tubes – The Completion Backward Principle on LP

I really like The Tubes. I do think that a lot of their later stuff was much more pop than their earlier work. I love the original self titled album. It’s very different and almost prog. The Completion Backward Principle is a pretty good example of 80’s New Wave, leaning towards pop, and it does […]

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 […]

Men at Work – Business as Usual on Vinyl

I love the 80’s. I really do. That’s when I grew up. I love most everything about them, especially the music. Although some of the pop music I could do without, I still think it was better than today. Men at Work is one of those iconic bands with their single “Down Under”. I’m not […]

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, […]

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 […]
