|Old Favourites I Spun Again Recently|
At 21 years of age my music taste has changed over time. But every now and then I go back a bit and spin some of my old favourites from back through my various tastes. Here's my most recent ten.
Welcome To My Nightmare
Alice Cooper helped to get me into rock music and Welcome To My Nightmare was always one of my personal favourites from his catalogue. Forget his poppy/ glam phase of the 80's, his 70's stuff is amazing.
The first Pink Floyd album I ever owned. Possibly the greatest progressive rock band ever.
The only Prince album I like, I can't stand the little midget to be honest. But this has some funky tracks on it.
The Joshua Tree
The biggest band to come out of my native Ireland, and really the only album of their's I can still listen to all the way through.
Okay, this is a fairly recent acquisition of mine, but back when I was about 10 I loved listening to my dad's Bob Seger vinyls (not he, myself nor my mother can recall where they went, probably sold them though). When I saw this I had to snap it up. Classic.
Born To Run
A seriously underrated record overshadowed by Born In The USA.
The album that got me into prog. A true classic, such a pity about the direction the band went with Phil Collins at the helm.
Yes, I really really dig Machine Head. But there is no denying the might of its predecessor. I don't spin it nearly as often as I do Machine Head, but still an amazing album.
John Wesley Harding
Dylan was an excellent songwriter in his day. I remember the first time hearing this in 1995, having heard Jimi Hendrix's version of All Along The Watchtower, wanting to hear how tohe original compared. Personally I prefer Hendrix's cover, but John Wesley Harding is still one of Dylan's greatest achievements.
|10|| ||Bob Marley|
A spectacular reggae album that I still hold dear. Unable to locate his complete back-catlogue I chose to persue one of the few 'best-of' compilations I own, and in my opinion is one of the few 'best-ofs' that are worthy of the title
