Went to see The Hu on Tuesday evening. They were great.
REO Speedwagon - The Hits
Career spanning collection including early hits from when they were a rock band and later songs from when they became an adult contemporary/ballad girl band. Roll with the changes, Time for me to fly, Keep on loving you, Back on the road again, Take it on the run, Ridin' the storm out.
Black Sabbath - Mob Rules
Another great cd from the Dio-era of sabbath. Solid guitar playing from Iommi here. The sign of the southern cross, Over and over, Turn up the night, The mob rules, Country girl.
Rock Of The 80's Vol. II - Various Artists
Think I got this at a bargain bin in Wal-mart or something. Good selection of 80's alternative music. She blinded me with science( T. Dolby), Tainted love(Soft cell), Always something there to remind me(Naked eyes), The look of love(ABC), The metro(Berlin), Hold me now(Thompson twins), Cars(Gary numan), Video killed the radio star(The buggles), Never say never(Romeo void).
Blackfoot - Greatest Hits
Led by a couple early-era members of lynyrd skynyrd, Blackfoot was another solid southern-rock band that made some good music. Highway song(great guitar solo at the end), Fly away, Wishing well, Fox chase, Train,train.
Did they play "won't get fooled again?"
I would love to see the Hu live!
Ive had this going round in my head for a week now!
Blue Oyster Cult - Cult Classics
Although they had several big hits it seems that BOC doesn't get remembered as often in conversations about great classic rock bands. This collection has several classic hits and some deep tracks. They made a couple more solid records after this one ,so several of my fave songs aren't included , but every track here is gold. Don't fear the reaper, E.T.I., Burning for you, Godzilla, Astronomy(an epic song), This ain't the summer of love. Later hits not included but I will mention, Shooting shark, Take me away, Dancing in the ruins. Not sure if this is true but I heard BOC is not in the rock and roll hall of fame. Disgraceful if true.
The Rocky Story - Various Artists
A collection of songs from the Rocky soundtracks. Great work-out CD and includes some legit hits. Eye of the tiger, Burning heart(survivor), Living in America( James Brown), No easy way out( Robert Tepper), and of course several instrumentals including the great Rocky theme(Gonna fly now).
They're on BBC iPlayer on the Glastonbury highlights if you can get it.
Rodrigo Y Gabriela - Rodrigo Y Gabriela
My introduction to these guys was hearing their Spanish/Flamenco guitar version of Stairway to heaven on a music choice station on tv. It was around 2008 and I was really getting into Flamenco Guitar music so I rather quickly found and purchased this Cd. Great playing and compositions. Got to see them live in 2016, great show. Tamacun, Diablo rojo, Ixtapa, Stairway to heaven, Orion, Satori.
The Rolling Stones - Steel Wheels
Considered a comeback record at the time, this Stones CD is good but not great by their standards. It had been a few years since their last record and both Mick and Keith had done solo projects so there was a lot of excitement about a new Stones record. A few hits, some solid tracks, and even some lead vocals by Keith. Mixed emotions, Terrifying, Rock and a hard place, Can't be seen, Sad sad sad, Almost hear you sigh.
Listening to the new BBC official song :
lawson Rollins - Infinita
One of the best Acoustic Guitar CD's in my collection. Rollins is a virtuoso guitarist and demonstrates a style remeniscent of Al Di Meola( ADM is a true master). A couple of songs include some vocal work by Flora Purim. A great Instrumental guitar cd to be sure. In motion, Cafe Jobim, Infinita, Streets of San Miguel, Through the night.
The Best Blues Album In The World.......Ever(Disc I) - Various Artists
Some classic songs by legendary Blues Artists. Illustrated man(Johnny Winter), Frosty(Albert Collins), Three o'clock blues(B.B. King), I shall not be moved(Pop Staples), Down here in the real big empty(Roy Rogers), Can't stay away(Charlie Musselwhite).
The Best Blues Album In The World......Ever - Various Artists
More great blue music. Little red rooster(Howlin' Wolf), I'd rather go blind(Etta James), Boom Boom(John Lee Hooker), Still got the blues(Gary Moore), Born under a bad sign(Albert King), Me and my guitar(Freddie King), Low down(J.J. Cale). This 2-disc set is a valuable asset to my collection.
Boogie Nights - Music From The Original Motion Picture
Thought the movie was so-so but liked the music. This is the equivalent of a decent 70's-80's mix tape. Nice variety of Disco,R/B, and Rock. By far not the best soundtrack in my collection but not bad. Best of my love(The Emotions), Spill the wine(Eric Bourdon/War), Magnet and steel(Walter Egan), Livin' thing(ELO), Got to give it up(Marvin Gaye).
Rolling Stones - Forty Licks(Disc I)
20 classic "Licks" from the original bad boys of rock. The old argument use to be Beatles or Stones? My answer has always been both. Gimmie shelter, Satisfaction, The last time, Wild horses, Honky tonk women, It's all over now, Jumpin' jack flash.
