I don't remember an Iggy record being this hyped.  The personnel involved really take it to another level.  I imagine Josh Homme will do for him what Rick Rubin did for Johnny Cash.

It really is very good.

Already gone is a great song though.

New Iggy

Some other points:

Sound and songs similar to those on Arctic Monkeys third record 'Humbug' - which Homme also produced.

You can see how much of an influence Iggy was to Bowie - both in general sound terms and in delivery.

The climax to 'Paraguay' is the most thrilling thing I've heard in a while...

I think The Downward Spiral is one of the top 3 or 4 records of the 90's.  It's just stunning, particularly on headphones.  It's very full on and very dense though and you may need to persevere.  I remember when I first heard it though and from the off I was utterly blown away, it just sounded like nothing is ever heard before.  Crucially though, despite the crushing heaviness it's very very melodic.  A work of high art to me.

Follow up The Fragile is superb too, just genius.

But I'd probably suggest 'With Teeth' from 2005 - it's actually pretty poppy.  Great record.  I'm one of those that thinks Trent Reznor is a sonic genius.  I've got 'The Downward Spiral' in 5.1 and would love to hear what it sounds like...don't have 5.1 and can't see me bothering getting it anytime soon...

Alternatively, you could start off with The Fragile. That was my starting point, on the basis that SW listed it as one of his top ten favourite albums. It's a double, but not too heavy going, and if you like SW's approach to sonics, then you'll find lots to like in The Fragile.

I'd avoid 'Year Zero' until you're familiar with the sound and style.

You might want to try before you buy - have a look at this page http://www.nin.wiki/The_Definitive_NIN

If you have a Soundcloud or Spotify account, it might be worth sampling from one or all of these 4 definitive lists compiled by Reznor himself.

I spent last week creating them as mp3 playlists and they work pretty well as samplers of the different aspects of NIN music.

I agree completely. It is the best they've done so far. Space to Bakersfield feels like an Eddie Hazel tribute with it's stretched out guitar solo and spaced out sound.  And I bought it on white vinyl…. just because I could.

A bit late but as others have said, The Downward Spiral and The Fragile are the place to start.
Like SW The Fragile ranks in my top 10 albums.

Bought those and "With Teeth" for less than £15 on Amazon, loaded up and ready to spin tomorrow at work...

Blackfoot - highway song live

fecking hell, this is amazing.  Partly recorded in Newcastle too.  First proper full listen ever and I'm bowled over.

Back catalogue, here we jolly well come...
Playing Highway Song now. Chock full of Blackfoot classics although being a professional nitpicker ( ::)), it's a shame they played everything at breakneck speed. Perhaps Hargett wasn't the only Charlie to feature that night!

Joe Bonamassa - Blues of Desperation

I know Joe has his knockers, and I wasn't overly impressed with his last album, but I love this release. Has been pretty much on my CD player all week.  8)

Been on a bit of a "nostalgia fest" recently...and have dug out a number of classics from the early 80s....some have worn well and some really badly...

Loving some early Maiden, especially the debut & Killers
Back in Black has had a spin
Blizzard of Ozz lasted 4 tracks
Even dragged Bryan Adams' Reckless of the shelves
Ace of Spades was excellent

Opeth - Lamentations

It's high time you pulled out your copy of Giant - Last Of The Runaways, Mr Sims lad.

Enough of all this doom and gloom.

It's summer and the best summer album EVAH is Repeat Offender by Richard Marx.

That's what everyone should be listening to - the most perfect amalgamation of rock and pop in recorded history. 8)

Saturday is vinyl day, Lamentations was my latest vinyl. Doom and Gloom is my ground state :)

No. The best summer album EVAH is Fish Rising by Steve Hillage. Songs about Sun, Snakes and Fish, what could be better?

My discovery of the year so far: Hammers of Misfortune. I am ploughing my way through their catalogue and cannot believe I have missed this band. They have been at it for 15+ years!
Wikipedia says: Hammers of Misfortune is a progressive heavy metal band from San Francisco, California. The band's style has varied from album to album, at times incorporating different elements of folk metal, doom metal, NWOBHM, black metal, 1970s rock, and thrash metal. It is the brainchild of guitarist John Cobbett, who serves as the band's producer and primary songwriter.
But it is even more than that! I purchased the backcatalogue on their Bandcamp page and am so pleased!

https://hammersofmisfortune.bandcamp.com

I can imagine Mr. Sims liking this lot a lot. If you don't know (of) them already.

Earlier :

Tilt - Hinterland.

A couple of recommendations on FB prompted this one....not bad on first listen. Plenty of good playing and the singer is good. Was nearly put oiff by the Dream Theater comparisons, but needn't have worried.

The Pineapple Thief - Your Wilderness

Still enjoying this.

Now

Gov't Mle - The Tel-Star Sessions

Early sessions from before the debut album. I heard it once as a boot, but this is nicely cleaned up and different enough from the final versions to be worthy of repeated plays.

Must confess, myself and one of my friends are both RM fans - seen him on both of his Scottish appearances, even though his last show he thought was only his first!

All thanks to late transmissions of America's Top 10 'with Casey Kasem', where RM was an ever-present with all those glorious early singles.  8)

Kurt is a musical genius. Not being a musician myself, this could well be a little misplaced and unwarranted musical snobbery on my part, but my subjective impression is that, apart from the singles, most of their potential audience were/are a bit too conventional in their tastes or simply too musically illiterate/lazy to appreciate them. Same story with Rush until they became more commercial and fashionable of course.....not that I'm still bitter!! ???

On the subject of 80s Rush sounding like other bands - last night at the gym I had the iPod on shuffle and couldn't understand how Coldplay could crop up (as I have none of their stuff), then I realised I was in fact listening to the intro to Anagram from Presto.

Elephant Tree - Elephant Tree
Listen to it almost daily, and have done for some months. Easily and by some stretch the album of the year. Most of you lot would like it. All vocals are sung  ;) . Its chock full of hooks, melodies, psychedelia, and riffs the size of small continents.

Ritual King - Elixir

These heavy blues rockers have been making a name for themselves around Manchester, building up a bit of a following. They are very much in the same vein as Kadavar, Graveyard, Truckfighters, Uncle Acid - a power trio whose record collections span the era 1967 to 1975. Whilst hardly unique they are scorching live, and this debut is great fun.

Debut album from Scouse sludge titans. Almost none of you will like this, take my word for it. ;D

THE EIGHTIES ARE ALIVE!!
Sumerlands - s/t (that's right with just the one M). This feels like a warm bath with a guitar sound that sounds like 40 players are at it. The first track (Seventh Seal) sounds like (more than a) take on Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love. The rest of the album is pure '80's delight. Think Ozzy w/Randy, Hall of the Mountain King Savatage era. Bit of Priest here and there. Love it. Can't help myself.….
Check them out on their bandcamp page. It's where I bought the album download.

Richard Marx - Rush Street

Apart from the sublime and evergreen smash hits Take This Heart and Hazard, sadly this follow-up to Repeat Offender sorely lacks that album's solid platinum hooks and songcraft, despite its slicker production; 11 out of its 13 tracks are mostly the sort of atrocious elevator soft pop-rock muzak that Marx must have farted in his sleep.  Listen to tracks 4 and 5 and avoid the rest.  :-\

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard - Y Proffwyd Dwyll

Sophomore album by Welsh doom giants.
Big, dirty, lumbering, downtuned riffs with Jessica Ball's sweet, ethereal vocals over the top. Dirty and angelic at the same time. I believe I have a crush. This band give me the horn.

Fantastic.

Up there with Nick Cave and Bowie as record of the year - and I would have laughed if you'd told me that 12 months ago.

Extraordinary.

Opeth - Sorceress

Was hoping for my big box with Vinyl, CD and 5.1 versions, but no. Production problems...
Still, they sent me a link for an MP3 download as recompense.

It's not that bad. As we all know from Rush, bands cannot keep up a high level of songwriting through their careers. At this stage in their life, Rush were at the Roll the Bones stage. Puts things into perspective somewhat...

By 'eck though The Wilde Flowers rips off the Specials Gangsters...

Annoyingly, there's good stuff there, it's just swamped with ridiculous effects...maybe it'll sound better with further listens....

What a difference a few days and a few listens makes.  Not for everyone, some bizarre production methods (recording segments on an old Neil Young cassette tape which he'd pulled out and scrunched up - resulting in drop outs and muffle), but yeah, it's as lovely as the other 2 BI records.  There's no one that's sounds like them, that's for sure.

New Helmet out today. On first listen it's poor. Retreads the ground of recent albums Seeing Eye Dog and Monochrome (bit better than the former, nowhere near as good as the latter), but is a shadow of their 90s heyday.

(http://cf-images.emusic.com/music/images/album/161/535/16153597/300x300.jpg)

Prompted to revisit Warrior Soul after a Facebook convo about them today. fecker was a strong release - proof that ageing sleaze rockers can still pull out the stops when they want to.

Bought the 3CD singles box that's just been released.  2 CDs too many, I reckon.  Some killer songs on there but tonnes of guff too.


Still disturbed by how bad he looked on Jonathan Ross.  A long way from the cheeky little chappie that everyone loved in the 80's.  I do hope he regains some of whatever it is that made him so popular back then.

Just heard 3 new Metallica songs. They are quite OK. Title track is thrashy, the other 2 are a bit longer (6+ mins) and are typically Metallica. Only bassdrum and guitar, and what sticks out mostly to me are they monotonous vocals. I know Hetfield has his limitations but still... I don't expect the album to blow me out of my seat (that was 30 years ago) but I'd like to believe they can still do some decent work.

Some mates have been fans for years. Another buddy gave me a copy of 'Home' and commented on Aynsley's guitar tone. It is indeed a lovely sound, reminiscent of early Billy Gibbons. I was invited to see him live many times in small venues in Oxford but was never interested - seems it was my loss. I'll check the tour dates right now, cheers for that  ;)

Only on first listen so too early to say - that said, I could do with a bit of Sting-by-numbers given we've had a decade of shit lute music and shipyard musicals and he hasn't done a decent record since 1996...

Superjoint - Caught Up In The Gears Of Application

First album in 13 years from "supergroup" featuring Phil Anselmo (Pantera) and Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod), released today. They've dropped "Ritual" from their name and turned the amps up even further. On first listen, its fecking awesome: the groove of Pantera plus the punk sludge of Eyehategod. Very much my bag.  8)

Yep, its Sting-by-numbers.
Immaculately engineered and mixed.
A sprinkling of sublime moments from Colaiuta and Miller.
Sadly the songs are blandola. More Sacred Love than Ten Summoners Tales, unfortunately.
Pains me that I've never seen him live as a solo artist. Don't see that changing - expect arena dates with extortionate ticket prices forthwith.

Another one which will likely to be in my top 10 albums of the year. Vodun are that rarest of things: a unique band. Described by others as "heavy afro psych" and "like Aretha fronting Royal Blood after imbibing ayahuasca". Incendiary live. I am heavily biased as am friends with two of them, but feck it - go check 'em out. Supporting Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats on selected dates next month.

Really, might have to get that but Amazon price now £35!
Half speed master? The master disk is cut by the cutting lathe at half normal speed supposedly giving higher fidelity.

Listened again and closely followed it with ADATR. I still see that as a far superior rock album in all respects. For instance, Tie Your Mother Down is better than anything on ANATO by a country mile IMO. I know the diversity of styles is one of the appealing things to a lot of Queen fans but the vaudeville Seaside Rendevous, Formbyesque Good Company and the oddity that is '39 (The Spinners?) is the reason I was never a fan. Having said that, it was worth a tenner for You're My Best Friend, I'm In Love With My Car and the gonzoid Rhapsody. Still not convinced The Prophet's Song is not ruined by the solo vocal nonsense in the middle.
Oh, and God Save The Queen is awful too! Perhaps I should try the (very early) stuff instead(always loved  Seven Seas Of Rye).

Catching up on some releases I missed this year:
Vektor - Terminal Redux. Sci Fi Thrash with more ideas in one song then most bands have in an entire career!
Oranssi Pazuzu - Värähtelijä. Jeez this is scary stuff! But very, very cool. Being described as spacerock / psychedelic & avant garde black metal. Wow.

Both bands can be streamed on Bandcamp as well.

I didn't know that. I assumed that part was played by Vinnie Vincent (clearly not Ace). Creatures seems to lack any contribution from the Spaceman but on Dynasty it's more difficult to assess whether he is featured on any more than three tracks. It wouldn't surprise me if Peter Criss is only on a couple of tracks also. The wheels were definitely coming off around that time.

"Borrowed" a copy of the Mojo CD on the front of the Feb 17 issue lying around in our Marketing Dept at work - the last track by an instrumental band called Earthless caught by ear - track in question "Violence of the red sea" - need to do some more listening of this band, always a bit wary of instrumental only groups though......
Good also to hear a new track by The Obsessed and hear they re-formed and are working on a new album.
Only other track of note to these ears on the CD was Thundering Voices by Rival Sons.
CD will be returned this morning after I have finished thumbing through the magazine....

1968 - Fortuna Havana EP
Got a review copy (its out on 10th Feb). Corking little EP. Vocalist sounds like a cross between Chris Cornell and Paul Rodgers. Guitarist is a huge fan of both Tony Iommi and Robin Trower, and he manages to sound a bit like both. Also bits of Deftones and A Perfect Circle in there. Big riffs, huge choruses. Sounds like a band from the 1970s recording in a megabucks 2016 studio.

Mac Demarco - Another One
Not my usual bag in any way, shape or form but the girl I'm shagging this week is a huge fan so its seeped in a bit. Wikipedia describes him as "blue wave, slacker rock" whilst Demarco refers to his sound as "jizz jazz". I hear Beck, Jonathan Richman and Steely Dan.

Sundara Karma - Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect
The Hunna - 100

Now my son has turned 18 he doesn't come to stay at my gaff much, but we've been going to gigs together. He's been to see some of my heavy shit, and in return I'm joining him at some of his favourite bands' shows.
Saw The Hunna with him last week and was the youngest person in the audience by 25 years. They sounded like The Killers, totally unoriginal, but they were still great fun and now I'm listening to the album a lot.
We're seeing Sundara Karma next month. Again, totally unoriginal indie that sounds a bit like Arcade Fire and early U2 but the songs are infectious in a guilty pleasure kinda way. Nothing new here but it's good fun.

Brainshit / Endless Swarm - Split EP
Brutal grindcore power violence. My music taste is getting heavier and heavier. If you'd told me 10 years ago I'd love this stuff I would have laughed at you. But love it I do.

John Garcia - the Coyote who spoke in tongues
I thought this was going to be a bit dull perhaps, Garcia doing acoustic songs. After all, Garcia I want to hear when he conquers a wall of guitars and comes out winning. but this is really entertaining with some new interpretations of old Kyuss favourites such as Green Machine, El Rodeo and (my personal favourite) Gardenia.

Sometimes, when you leave an album for a long time and come back to it, something may jump out at you and grab your attention.  Well that happened here with Before & After.  I particularly like the long intro.

Studio albums only?


Original or remixed Vapor Trails...or both...in sequence?

Well there are no hard and fast rules to this, but . . . .



Feedback?  No.  Not even sure if I still have it.
Studio only? Well that was the plan originally, but now you mention it I may indulge myslef in ATWAS, ESL, GUP live (from Replay x3 set), and of course, ASOH. Nothing later than ASOH though.
Remixed Vapor Trails - at least it is sonically improved, even if the songs aren't.
Snakes and Arrows? It is going to be a struggle not to skip some of the tracks I must admit.  But that applies to everything post-RTB for me.  At least there is Clockwork Angels to look forward to at the end  8)


Ah - I've just finished 2112 (deluxe edition from the BluRay release of a few years ago), so I need to do ATWAS next.  Woohoo!

Black Sabbath - S/T

Always aware of individual tracks but never their records as a whole (with Ozzy).  Since seeing them a few weeks ago, I'm having constant lightbulb moments.  Where I thought previously they were dull and plodding, I'm now finding those early records to be just astonishing.  Something of a habit over the last few years has been discovery of new 'old' stuff that I'd always disregarded, but which I now love - The Who, Motorhead, Blackfoot, Alice Cooper, etc, etc.

Elbow - Little Fictions
A slow burner but very rewarding with repeated listens.  Losing the drummer might have been a blessing.  Theres real groove to be had here. 

Julie Byrne - Not Even Happiness
Female Nick Drake.  Lovely.

Cool - cheers for the heads up. Must get to see them live at some point - always worried with a band whose sound is on the edge of distortion that the sound guy doesn't screw it up in venue. When executed live properly that sound can be immense - get it wrong and it can sound awful.

I recently found out that they are calling it quits at the end of 2017 (apart from a one off final show on Cruise to the Edge in 2018) They have already commenced their Farewell Tour but have no scheduled dates in the UK as yet. I really hope they do manage to get over here one last time.


They are brilliant live and have one of THE most under-rated guitarists in Prog Rock in the shape of Jim Crichton.

Mastodon's Emperor of Sand. Another Mastodon, sounding like the last two, but it does not get boring anywhere. The tunes are great, the riffs grind teeth, the drums roll and spasm their way through the songs and the growls and vocals spit out another conceptual tail. I like they way these guys complete the albums with (literally) all bells and whistles. Brendan O Brien handled this one (as he did Crack the Skye) and that does make a difference. It is a but more diverse than the previous 2.

Q magazine - like many others - are only interested in selling mags. Radiohead make good "cover" material for their demographic in the same way that Zep make good cover material for Classic Rock

I'd say OK Computer is their best record, but The bends is deffo the one I'd recommend to someone as a 'first taste'.  That trio of records from The Bends-Ok Computer-Kid A is just awesome.  Nothing they've done since scales those heights.

NP - Suzanne Vega Lover, Beloved.
Excellent, as usual.

I'd agree Kurtzy about said trio, however I believe 'In Rainbows' is of equal quality, a sublime album.

Been playing quite a bit of Queen lately. I've obviously got several of their albums (5-7?!), but I've never been a huge fan. For some reason they never really clicked with me, but loving them just now.

Other than that, I have been exploring some new folk/Americana bands on Spotify. Liking Blind Pilot and Langhorne Slim a lot.  :-)

(http://www.grande-rock.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/large/imagesnews/cursus-st-cover2017.jpg)

San Antonio duo Cursus come flying out of the blocks on this, their debut album. CJ Duron and drummer Sarah Roorkfirst have fashioned something bleak and funereal over six brooding and dark songs. Neurosis, YOB and Ufomammut are clear influences: some drone, fat slabs of riff and much melancholy. But what sets this release apart is second song ‘Waters of Wrath’, a huge rumbling beast of a doom tune with a hook so large you could catch a shark with it. Their cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun’ is unnecessary and laborious, but that aside Cursus’s amplified dirges and raging distortion bear repeat listens. A band to watch.

How I reviewed them in Terrorizer:

Back in 2014 Italian quintet Shores of Null released their debut ‘Quiescence’ to critical acclaim in these pages. Three years on and the self-styled blackened gothic metal titans reappear with a fresh lick of paint and a significant upgrade under the hood. Everything is a bit more widescreen, from Gabriele Giaccari and Raffaele Colace’s riffing to the sheer power in Davide Straccione vocals. There are still sturm and drang moments but overall the band have gone for a more polished and honed sound which takes them a little closer to the mainstream. There are several earworms among these eleven songs, including the outstanding instrumental ‘Tributary Waters’. It’s very European, and all the better for it.

Beatles - newly mixed Sgt. Peppers. Never been really interested in the whole Mono / stereo debate on this, but the booklet accompanied gives food for thought:
The original Mono was the one all Beatles were present for the in studio, the stereo (as we know it) was just an afterthought, done quickly. This newly mixed stereo version does sound fantastic compared to the old one. Probably sacrilege but since I do not attend the Beatles church I don't really care about that.
it's a bit like listening to the Love compilation album from a couple of years ago. Sounds contemporary, up to 2017 standards sonically. And I like that.

Been playing a lot of Heatwave stuff lately...very much of its time, and some of it is of variable quality, but Rod Templeton was a brilliant song writer and arranger when on form and Jonnie Wilder Jnr. had the voice of an Angel...the band were no mugs either and were equally adept at playing ballads, Pop, Disco, Funk and even elements of Jazz Fusion ( check out the drums and Bass riff on the intro to 'Boogie Nights' ). Producer Barry Blue did a great job on their albums; turn up the volumne and listen to "Always and Forever" through a headphone amp and a good set of cans and try not to be swept away....now that, is a Choon!

Gov't Mule - Revolution Come...Revolution Go. It is certainly a diverse record. It sounds like most GM albums of lately sound: same studio et al. But to me that's not a bad thing. I like GM better than Warren solo, so I am happy enough.

It's that time of year again, folks!  Yep, it's the Annual Summer Spin Of A Richard Marx Album!!

This year, we've dug out one of his absolute corkers from the early 90s, viz:

RICHARD MARX - PAID VACATION

Where the squillion-selling 80s pop-rock masterpiece and last year's choice Repeat Offender is all lean muscle, surfboards and shades, Paid Vacation is its mature, cocktail-sipping uncle, with distortion pedals and stadium-filling riffs eschewed in favour of cooler, cleaner MOR tones, while retaining Marx's trademark diamond-encrusted hooks and melodies that tick every radio-friendly box in the Marx Manual of Master Songcraft.

At 13 tracks long, there are inevitably moments that skirt the ionosphere of planet cheese, but there are by no means any duffers on this record as Marx's genius ear for a great tune and modulatory shifts are always to the fore.  Couple those with one of the most distinctively melodic smooth-rock voices in popular music and this is a true ear candy soundtrack to the summer.

Along with gloriously slick and classy mid-tempo drivetime singalongs like One More Try, and absolute bangers with California-sized choruses like Nothing To Hide, this album includes mega-hit ballad Now And Forever (astonishingly dismissed by Indie Chick as "atrocious") and Marx's superb cover of Billy Joel's fantastically rousing showstopper Miami 2017.

So the next time the sun is out and cracking t'flags and you're driving down the Pacific Coast Highway for an afternoon cooler at the beach-side hotel bar, slide this CD into your Blaupunkt and enjoy!  8)

Feist - Pleasure
My record of the year.

Metallica - Hardwired

Counting Crows - August & Everything After
Not listened to in years - its still great.

Arcade Fire - Everything Now
Some great tracks, but some filler, too.

LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver

Roger Waters - Is This The Life We Really Want
Initially thought it was pants, but love it now - superb.

To be honest I was thinking the other way round. There was a great atmosphere at the NEC and I loved the show but in the cold light of day listening to a recording, you can hear that the band arnt that great and Ritchie doesn't play much.

Not sure if there's a new thread  :-\  but;.....

Deep Purple - Graz

Very, very late for an't kind of a review as the abum was first released in 2014. Ive been a Purple/Rainbow collector off and on for decades and have this as a digital file and on vinyl (though its never been played and tbh probably never will be) For the casual Purple fan this is not worth shelling out your hard earned wonga for.


The Audio production is actually very good but the performances veer from the poor to mediocre at best....and in Glen Hughes case; the absolutely abominable!! He completely eviscerated Smoke on the Water/Georgia (on my mind) and the hideous, botched, backyard abortion that is Space Trucking....as he seems to have done on every live performance that I've ever heard of the mark 3 line up. Whether it was down to substance abuse I don't know but Hughes sings at such a ridiculous range and so badly out of key in the "harmonies" that he only succeeds in pulling a surely shellshocked, bewildered and possibly high/stoned Coverdale down with him...its when Hughes sings solo that the true sonic Horror is unleashed though...imagine having to play and put up with that for an entire tour?!...and for those who haven't already heard this album, I strongly suggest that you do leave it to your imagination!!  It really is no wonder that Blackmore was so desperate  to quit...and thank feck he did..or we might never have had the first 3 Rainbow albums and the incredible live recordings of the 76-78 tours.

Avoid...!!.....unless you are a completist/masochist.....and even then do not play at loud volumes....and nowhere near a dog!


Imho the best Mark 3 live albums are Live in London, the 75 Paris show and California Jamming.....alas you still can't escape Hughes heinous vocal excesses.

^^^^^^^^^^

Back in the day, probably about the time of Hughes/Thrall, I remember a letter in Sounds complaining that it rekindled their aversion to Glenn "AAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHH, NOOOOO!!!!!!!" Hughes and his excessive vocal warblngs.

Anyhoo, I'm listening to the Von Hertzen Brother's War is Over being as I'll be hearing most of it live tonight.

That first Hughes/Thrall album is mint! Never seen him live except for a one off Trapeze gig...as part of a tribute concert for some music labelbod who had died ... Fish headlined....it was around the time that the Internal Exile album was released ... I think.

It really is very poor.....I don't  know if there are any more good quality live recordings from the 74 Tour but would be interested to hear anything that came to light.

I've also been meaning to get a decent mark 4 live recording. Poor Tommy Bolin, he was a great guitarist and deserved a much better live DP legacy than The Last Concert in Japan....which should never have been released!

I've also been meaning to get a decent mark 4 live recording. Poor Tommy Bolin, he was a great guitarist and deserved a much better live DP legacy than The Last Concert in Japan....which should never have been released!
The problem for me with mark 4 live recordings is the way Hughes & Coverdale carry on, one with the yelping and the other with his oooh sexy baby crap. Which is a shame because I've always liked Come Taste The Band. I also have a few of the Tommy Bolin solo recordings and what a great guitarist he was. There's also a 30min. film of one of the Japanese shows which is just as painful to watch as it is to listen to :(

corrected for you.
Seen some great bands there


The only thing that saves it from a zero rating is the World's End pub upstairs....which I like...could do with putting on a few real Ales but I really like the open space and vibe.

Yeah agreed.... I have seen the video too, years ago...and as you rightfully say, it is painful to watch.


When I listen to Come Taste the Band all these years later, with Blackmore gone CTTB seems like much more of a collaborative....and probably a more democratic effort....given Blackmores well documented ego and control issues it must have been something of a relief to Lord in particular not to have to keep putting out fires...however; and it may seem an obvious thing to say, but even with the different flavours that Hughes and Bolin added, with hindsight it seems much more of a bridge between Purple and early Whitesnake than I had realised...perhaps Coverdale had more creative clout than I assumed😕🤔...as I said, that might seem like an obvious thing to say but at the time the album was released I was only 14 and blissfully unaware of internal band politics and musicians acting like divas.

Between the advent of the cd player, work demands, bringing up 3 kids and being married to a control freak with very little tolerance for anything more challenging than Fleetwood Mac it meant that (any) vinyl rarely, if ever, made it onto the turntable after 1985 and in the digital age I really only ever listen to This Time Around and Owed to G....still, once I get settled in my own place that will be one of the many changes that I look forward to making.

Wo Fat - Freak Valley & Beyond: Live JuJu

My album of 2017, by some stretch. Stoner boogie. I wish all live albums sounded this electric. Anyone with a passing interest in Kyuss and ZZ Top needs to get on this, as it's basically a combination of both of them.

U2 - Songs Of Experience

Similar to what Hass said above, a fine and solid and honest U2 album, and stronger overall than its predecessor and counterpart, but nothing here approaches the Joshua Trees and the Achtung Babys.

Apparently about nine producers involved, which I'm not convinced has helped.  For example, American Soul with its arena-sized riff and chanted chorus is one of several tracks that will surely sound much bigger and better and rawer live; the production is a tad too clean and polished, and a great Larry Mullen Jr drum break is bizarrely dialled way down in the mix, one of a few moments where an ideal opportunity for the record to let off some stadium fireworks is squandered.

That said, there's a lot to like, and it's another testament to the fact that up against the Coldplays and the Elbows of this world, U2 remain far bigger, far better and definitely far richer. :)

Today's Metal vinyl:

Opeth - Morningrise (Completes my Opeth vinyl collection)
Judas Priest - Killing Machine (Well bent, well bent for Trevor)
Mausoleum Gate - Into a Dark Divinity (Think 70s keyboard driven Hard Rock, think NWOBHM, think Prog, think MELLOTRON, think Finland's answer to Magnum ca. Kindom of Madness...)

Noel Gallagher- Who Built The Moon

Sent the first 2 vinyls back to amazon..shoddy condition...this one is much better.  Takes some time, but it’s very good.

Going through the super deluxe box set of Metallica’s ‘Ride the Lightning’

Like the MOP’s box, this is so well put together..the extras are fantastic and the records sound absolutely amazing..

Haken-Affinity. Shameless Dream Theater tribute
Ayreon-The SOurce. Interesting
Pain of Salvation-In the passing light of day. I might have to retract my statement about this lot, they are actually quite good
