What Are You Listening To?
Deep Purple - Made in Europe. Almost their swansong as a band but a brilliant album nevertheless. A blistering version of 'Burn'. Mr. Paice is in fine form on this album. As is Mr. Lord.

Kansas - Two for the Show - probably one of the best live rock albums ever produced. A band at their peak. My favourite from the album - the best version of this track - https://youtu.be/4r3uIA6CGiA

And one more - https://youtu.be/neuVZHVINHw

SLADE "sladest"  vinyl, 1973:

compilation..
released to fill in the gap after their drummer had a serous car accident
and the band had to postpone the recording of their current studio set...
album introduced the band to the US market with US Rolling Stone calling it
"the wildest all-stops out rock and roll youre likely to hear this year"...
unfortunately the buying public were stupid and didn't buy it, it peaked at #120 Stateside...
charted where it deserved in the UK (#1) and #2 in Australia...
one of the greatest compilation albums ever released IMO...

I LOVE THIS ALBUM

1....cum on feel the noise ***

This afternoon it's just me, a bottle of Chateaux du Plonk and Alan Parsons's 'The Turn of a Friendly Card'. Bliss.

Next up - another favourite live album. Only 4 tracks on this one but a superb production. Roxy Music's 'The High Road' - the band are really pumping on this album.

IMO, Lennon's best post-Beatle composition bar none!

Camel - The Snow Goose (or strictly speaking -music inspired by, etc)

I absolutely love this album - love Paul Gallico's book too. A go to listen that is restorative soul food for me. Difficult to listen to snippets - you have to hear the whole thing for it to make proper sense ... the pieces blend into one another and of course, the story unfolds in the music.  

One where Andy Latimer plays the flute - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7esW6StGSI -

And what might be called the title track, I suppose ...

A masterpiece - pure and simple. Amazing what Mr. Latimer can do with a handful of notes. And the tone of that guitar is unique!

AC/DC  "ballbreaker"  cd,  1998:

the band's thirteenth, seventh with Brian Johnson on vocals...
comes close to being their least likeable album for me...
produced by Rick Rubin...
production is overdone on here, the band sound too 'safe' and 'sterile'
but the songs don't help with that neither...
theyre very clinical and predictable in their delivery (even for these guys LOL)…
theres four tracks on this one I don't like, that's probably more in one hit than on 
all of their albums since Back In Black combined!...
album still went platinum in the USofA and triple platinum here in their homeland...

I LIKE THIS ALBUM

worst track: love bomb
best track: hard as a rock






tracks:

1....hard as a rock **
2....cover you in oil **
3....the furor *
4....boogie man **
5....the honey roll **
6....burnin' alive *
7....hail Ceasar **
8....love bomb *
9....caught with your pants down **
10..whiskey on the rocks **
11..ballbreaker *
