Remembering David Bowie – Changesonebowie

Sad news today, David Bowie died yesterday (January 10, 2016) after fighting cancer. He had a very, very long career not only as a singer, but also as an actor, producer and much more. One of my first exposures to Bowie was the movie Labyrinth, but his music became a staple on classic rock radio […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Leviticus – I Shall Conquer Vinyl Record

Here is one that not a lot of people will have. Leviticus is Christian metal from the eighties. There is another band out there called Leviticus, also metal, but they have a much different set of lyrics. I know, there are a lot of people out there who think that Christian music sucks, and well, […]

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 […]
