New to my collection, thanks to my generous in laws:

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros- Up from Below (which my ten year old son detests; calls it hippie music!)

I really, really like this band.

CAN-Tago Mago 40th Anniversary Edition
Just finished a nice long MTB ride on Boxing Day with this as the soundtrack. It was perfect. Their rhythm oriented music goes well with pedalling, and is especially good for its lack of repetition. One of the finest experimental bands and kraut rock at its best.

Oh man, I just ❤ Tina Turner!

Not that you, D&C, need any schooling, another favorite female singer of mine is Ann Wilson from Heart. Nancy knew how to rock as well.

a daring intro, and yes I've drowned large amounts of alcohol listening to their music.

On vacation I bought a tape, which happened to be The Cars' debut album 'The cars' from 1978:

And no, it wasn't played on a walkman prototype at the time. Later I bought the Vinyl version as well.

Alas I haven't played the album for 25 years, but it kicked off lots of stuff at the time imo.

Many of the songs on this album I'm familiar with. Some of them I am not. (And thank you for exposing me to them.)

And now I will listen to some Judas Priest. (Not my favorite rock band by any means, btw.)

PS - Do you remember that yellow, supposedly "waterproof", Sony walkman from back in the 80s? Yeah well, I had one of those.

(Actually, it was a handy-me-down from my older, and much cooler, brother, but nobody needs to know that.)

The Cars "Best Of" had some great songs.

Bought my first Walkman sometime around '91. Spend most my cash on huge loudspeakers, amps etc. Most the stuff had to go to the dump later....

Hard rock works very well in live concerts, but rarely on studio albums imo.

Early Black Sabbath is still some of the best ever done imo.

That was a great Cars hit.
My favorite Judas Priest song is "You got another thing comin' ".

Right now: Matisyahu feat. Akon - One Day

Solid voice, but needs much better instrumentation to back him up imo.

Very innovative band with catchy songs no doubt.

So concerts, Stones often uses 'Start Me Up' to kick things off, but BTO's 'you ain't seen nothing yet' from '74 ain't half bad:

My very favorite "prog metal" concept album ever....

Queensrÿche - Operation: Mindcrime, full album

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTqv59JXMUk

I just love Geoff Tate's voice, btw. He knows when to lung it, and when to keep it soft. (Of course, this may have been back in the 80s and mid-90s, don't know what he's been up to since.)

Great album. Probably one of the best prog metal albums made.

Where is this music he is supposed to be working on ? Taking his time. I think he is also going through some more of Zep's unreleased stuff for future release.

Unlike a tiny group of other great musicians from the era, Page left everything on the table by the late 70's imo.

After that, it was reengineering, mastering, getting together again, optimization etc.

Led Zeppelin DVD from '03 last notable work imo.
