My Vinyl Collection 88 Harp Music Of The Andes(uy)My Vinyl Collection 88: Harp Music Of The Andes(unknown year & Artist)A bunch of fun and energetic flamencoesque songsfrom the Andes, all played on an Indian Harp. Not tomuch to say about this one other than you will enjoyit if you are a fan of Spanish influenced music, worldmusic, or The Indian Harp(or just the harp in general),but still a fun album.
My Vinyl Collection 87 Something The Beatles(1969)My Vinyl Collection 87: Something, The Beatles(1969)An unusual occurrence in The Beatles singles in thatGeorge Harrison wrote the A Side and John Lennon(Credited to Lennon/McCartney) wrote the B side,which is "Come Together". "Something" is a slowmellow song and is A love song, where as "ComeTogether" is a trippy rock piece with verynonsensical lyrics. Both Songs are great and a lotof fun and should be a treat for any hardcore fanof The Beatles. Anyone else would be better offbuying the album "Abbey Road" where bothof these songs can be found much easier.
My Vinyl 86 Ian Anderson Thick As A Brick 2(2012)My Vinyl Collection 86: Ian Anderson, Thick As A Brick 2(2012)The squeal to the 1972 classic is an many ways very differentfrom the original, but it does share many similarities. Thelyrics for one focuses on Gerald Bostock this time and arenot supposed to have been written by him. The St. CleaveChronicle is now StCleave.Com. The music is also a bitmore varied here and changes tone more often. Theactual concept is also very much clear cut here as opposedto Thick As A Brick 1 where the concept seemed to bemore around the album than in the music itself. Thisis a great one for any prog rock fans.
My Vinyl 85 Jethro Tull Thick As A Brick(1972)My Vinyl Collection 85: Jethro Tull, Thick As A Brick(1972)The first attempt Jethro Tull made at an actual concept album,and their first "One Song" album. Thick as A Brick is a great epicpoem supposedly written by eight year old Gerald Bostock, withmusic composed by Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull. The wholealbum is actually a half a big joke and a parody of other conceptalbums and prog rock as well, though the other half is indeedserious music and lyrics, in the end it is just one big parody ofprog rock and concept albums just done in those genresperfectly. An epic and great album for the ages Thick As A Brickis great for anyone who does have a love for prog rock JethroTull and really 70's rock in general.
My Vinyl 84 Donovan's Greatest Hits Donovan(1969)My Vinyl Collection 84: Donovan's Greatest Hits, Donovan(1969)A more than a normal "Greatest Hits" release, this albumfeatures many rerecordings of songs from previousalbums, song's never put on albums before, full versionsof songs never before released and new stereo versionsof songs never before released. All the songs are ofcourse great and the rerecordings seem much betterthan the originals. Donovan is an awesomemusician and this is a really nice collection I canrecommend to anybody who likes 1960's folkrock.
My Vinyl 83 16 Greatest Hits Steppenwolf(1973)My Vinyl Collection 83: 16 Greatest Hits, Steppenwolf(1973)At nearly an hour this is one of the longest single disc vinylrecords I own. But it is a really nice collection of songsthough some of them aren't really "hits arguably. Stillall are allot of fun and it does include all their hits from upto that point in time such as "Magic Carpet Ride" and"Born To Be Wild". I can recommend this to fans of HardRock early Heavy metal, and obviously fans of the bandthemselves.
Vinyl 82 The Best Of The Animals The Animals(1966)My Vinyl Collection 82: The Best Of The Animals, The Animals(1966)A great collection of songs that sound like rock thatis beginning to push into the territory of a hard rocksound. It's almost as if you took The Monkees andmade them much edgier and with a much moreobvious blues origin. It has many favorites and radiohits of the group up until that point in the mid 1960'sso it is highly recommended for anyone who is a fanof 60s rock, and casual fans of The Animals.
Repeat The Very Best Of Jethro Tull Volume II(1977My Vinyl Collection 81: Repeat The Very Best Of Jethro Tull Volume II(1977)A sequel compilation album as strange as it may sound toM.U. The very best of Jethro Tull from the previous year. Itdoes this by following a similar style to that album and takespart of some of the longer songs that were on the previousbest of and putting other parts of the songs here. It also hasmany new songs that are also hits but perhaps a bit moreobscure than those on the previous compilation, another greatbuy for both big fans as well as those with a bit more of a casualleaning.
My Vinyl 80 M.U. The Best of Jethro Tull(1976)My Vinyl Collection 80: M.U. The Best of Jethro Tull, Jethro Tull(1976)The first of two similarly packaged "best of" Collections releasedby Jethro Tull in the Mid 70's. It has a good selection spanningeight years of tull and various lineup changes with differentmusicians. It has a great spectrum with whole songs and piecescut out from long songs. A really nice album great for the casualJethro Tull fan who really just wants the hits, but it also is great forbigger fans as it has the occasional obscure track as well such as"Rainbow Blues".
