What Are You Listening To?

AC/DC  "for those about to rock(we salute you)" cd. 1981:

eighth studio set...
second with Brian Johnson on vocals...
not in the same league as Back In Black, and other than Rock Or Bust
probably my least favourite album with Brian on vocals but it still makes the pass grade

best one on the album but I only like it, not love it:

SMALL FACES "ogdens' nut gone flake"  cd, 1968:

1968. fifty years old wow!...
their fourth and my favourite...
infact, its my favourite album of all time...
side one covers early hard rock, soul, cockney knees-up, psychedelia,
an instrumental re-recording of one of their early singles and straight up rock...
the second side/half is a concept, its the story of a boy named Happiness Stan, the songs on
this half are entwined with the gobbledegook spoken word pieces by UK funny man Stanley Unwin...
the original vinyl of this album was actually circular like the image above...
as I said, my favourite album of all time...

does anyone else have this album? and, do you love it?

I could go with the hits/better known tracks off this one like "afterglow (of your love)", "lazy sunday"
but I'm not, I'm going for this one instead:





and the final track on the album:

David Gilmour - London 1984 - a live album of his solo material up that point as well as a couple of Floyd tracks. Well below par. Yes the guitar riffs are there but it just does not come across well at all. Pass.

DAVID BOWIE   "aladin sane" cd,  1973...

Bowie's sixth....
rock, glam and uniquely Bowie...
biggie off it was "the jean genie"...
love most of the album, even like his cover of The Stones' "lets spend the night together"...
album has stood the test of time, sounds fresh and new after all these years, unlike it predecessor 
"Ziggy stardust" which is stuck in its 1972 time warp IMO (much like Sgt Peppers which is stuck in 1967)...
one of his best for sure...

album is almost its own 'best of' package IMO with tracks like "jean genie", "aladin sane", "the prettiest star",
"drive-in Saturday" but I'm going for this one on this occasion:

JET  "get born"  cd, 2003:

Aussie rockers...
debut album...
showed so much promise with this one, good eclectic mix of blues/hard rock, ballads, rock etc...
unfortunately, their next (and only) albums got progressively worse...
this is an absolute rock classic IMO, one of the best rock albums of the last thirty years IMO.

Great song. It was a soundtrack on a video game I used to play often.

Time to audit the record cabinet – starting at left and listening to whatever it is that is there. First up Supertramp – Famous Last Words

Well, it’s not Crime of the Century, or Crisis? What Crisis? – it’s the last album with Roger Hodgson and is weighted in his favour, I think. Death knell for the classic lineup of the band it might have been, but there are still some good sounds on this – I was really taken with the Davies penned "Waiting So Long" on this listen. Unfortunately, very scant Supertramp clips on YT.
 
That was followed by Freddie Mercury – Mr. Bad Guy

Well now – Freddie in all his flamboyant fabulousness with a little bit of filler and a handful of songs that put said filler in the shade. Best of all – at the bottom right corner of the lyrics liner and after the credits is a superb little Freddie gem – lol!! I can just visualise him saying this out loud …

"This album is dedicated to my cat Jerry - also Tom, Oscar and Tiffany, and all the cat lovers across the universe - screw everybody else."
 
The beautiful "There Must Be More to Life Than This" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgKSv0gK_NA

... and the title track ... 





Thank you Mr Mercury … (next up Deodata – Prelude … this could be quite a trip) ...
