    Black Oak Arkansas (Official Thread)

    I occasionally hear what young people listen to in the UK today which is either Hip Hop or 'rehashed rock' from current rock bands or female singers like Britney Spears or Adele and female singers like those two and I think to myself there is tons of great 1970s rock albums from the 'golden age'...

    Black Oak Arkansas (Official Thread)

    I presume that the couple of remaining record shops in London in 2023 possibly either think that there is no demand or maybe have just overlooked ordering any of there cds?. Even mention of MOUNTAIN on another topic thread is pitiful because there is currently only 'one' Best of Mountain cd on...

    The Clash (Official Thread)

    Apparently Mick Jones of The Clash is seen fairly often browsing around the FOPP record shop in London's west end and was also seen in the currently closed HMV shop before it was closed in 2019 on London's Oxford Street as well by the shop staff who told me that several years ago and no doubt he...

    Forgotten Bands of the Sixties

    Currently re-listening to all my TEN YEARS AFTER cd/albums that appeared on the Decca/Deram label between 1967 & 1969 and after a label switch the chrysalis record label between 1969 & 1975. This four piece British blues/rock band actually turned out some really good albums from about 1969...

    The BEATLES (Official Thread)

    Yeah a bit weird for a day or two a couple of weeks ago that both the iconic British bands from the 1960s were being talked about in the same breath so all we needed to complete the picture was a unreleased Jimi Hendrix song going to the top of the British charts as well and would have been the...

    AC/DC - For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) (1981)

    I actually prefer the 80s AC/DC albums with Brian although the mid/late 1970s albums with Bon like Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Let There Be Rock, Powerage, Highway To Hell & AC/DC live album If You Want Blood You've Got It are classic albums

    Jimi Hendrix Experience (Official Thread)

    As good as Electric Ladyland was and still is VERY GOOD I actually like Axis: Bold As Love the previous album better although most of Axis wasn't played live except for Spanish Castle Magic which Jimi included in his set to the very end in 1970 and Little Wing was played live a few times around...

    Black Sabbath (Official Thread)

    It was a bit weird at the time when Gillan joined Sabbath although the Born Again album is an ok album to listen to. When they played Reading back in 1983 and did Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water (as an encore I think?) that left many headbngers looking on non-plussed and confused??? :confused...
