    that Ram Jam 'best of' (just both their seventies albums slapped together on one CD) is really good. great rock. I'd definitely recommend

    Missed a docu on ZZ Top on tv the other day. my buddy the rock afficionado said it was so good I ordered a 5 cd budget box with all their big albums like Rio Grande Mud, Eliminator and the ones with the Spanish names. Good that missing the docu finally had me invest in some more southern rock. It had been a while. The Texan boys should arrive here on Saturday

    been missing getting into new albums. it's been 3 months now. decided to fine tune my budget for the coming months (fingers crossed) so I can get 20 of albums (= no shipping costs w/ Amazon) a month and try to get the most bang for my buck

    so ...

    ordered today :

    * triple CD of T-Rex
    * double CD of The Who
    * CD of Slade

    all comps. These are all bands I'm not familiar with (not even The Who apart from maybe two hits)

    looking forward to discussing some of the songs with all two of you lel

    originally I was looking for a good AC/DC comp but there isn't one out there, except maybe the Ironman II OST which is a comp in disguise. but it's import and thus expensive

    I've heard the drummer for The Who, Keith moon is considered one of the all time greats.

    I DL too, but I like buying comps for the liner notes and also for the joy of building my collection. I'm still really into physical media like books & cds


    personally I tend to play cds more often than something I DLed too. don't really know why. it's not like my sound system is superior or anything


    as an example, the liner notes to this cheap Slade comp are exemplary. full page bio, two paragraph liner notes per song on how the track came about, chart positions too. it appeals to the music nerd in me. I'm especially into how the song writing duo came up with their song ideas


    btw that Slade comp is just amazing. I half figured it'd be a few good singles and a lot of cheesy material but I'm gladly proven wrong. 21 singles that all reached the UK top 30 (some US top 30 too). they had to leave off two more such singles because of the playing time of the cd.


    the guitar work and the singing are exemplary. some good heavy tracks, next to a few good ballads and a few more pop oriented tracks. but mostly good rocking singles.


    really an unexpected hit with me. playing this comp for the third time straight right now

    so I've heard as well. tbh I only know of him because of his reputation as 'Moon The Loon', the party animal. it'll be interesting to play The Who double cd later tonight. it's a lot of material, no less than 42 tracks



    because the Slade comp is such a hit with me, I figured I'd treat myself for my upcoming b'day and order two more albums today. I had kind of forgotten yesterday that with Prime you get shipping for free at any price so today I realised I didn't have to go for 20 minimum. so with all of that, I managed to track down the last copy in store (or so they say at Amazon lol) of the best of Taste, Rory Gallagher's band. I heard Gallagher was one of the great blues/blues rock guitarists ever so I figured I'd check some of his work out. he died very young


    the other compilation is by a band called Free, who like Slade are categorized as glam rock






    ^^second track reminds me of Hendrix







    when Free disbanded their singer Paul Rodgers (great voice!) formed a super group with some other musicians called Bad Company. I really loved their songs so I'm hoping Free will do the trick too

    Digging T. Rex. Good use of electric guitar and inventive lyrics. Catchy singles too. Nice band to discover at this ripe age of mine. Too bad singer Marc Bolan died so early (car crash).

    Buddy of mine brought up Rare Earth at a concert we attended on Saturday. Said DJs played their 'Get Ready' (20 minute jam version of the Temptations song) at the end of their set, in full, to announce the end of the party and 'to discourage people from dancing'. We're talking 1970 here (he's in his late sixties)

    Had never heard of the band, purchased a comp, listening now. They were on Motown as the first white rock act (on off shoot label Rare Earth Records). It's pretty soulful rock, as early on in their career, they recorded a lot of rock covers of soul songs. Sold over 30 million records and drew a crowd live

    Here's the single version of 'Get Ready'

    Didn't realize Ghostface's song was based on a Rare Earth track
