Yes indeed, those Plankton albums are among the best. They are admirers of Wishbone Ash and You can definitely hear that in their music. They're even paying tribute to those guys by covering FUBB. Glad someone mentioned There And Back by Jeff Beck, one Big favourite of mine. In 1975 A Swedish band called Lotus released än absolutely amazingly selftitled album. Short, almost jazzy but highly

Each to their own and all that but how anyone can NOT have the debut as their no.1 is beyond me.

Swedish band Bridge To Mars, definitely. Former guitarist and drummer of Glenn Hughes' band have formed this trio, delivering modernsounding old style hardrock. Very guitarorientated but no soloing for the sake of soloing .

Not exactly my favourite album of his but it has been quite a while since last time I listened so it's probably time to give it another go. Actually, I've always prefered the Bob James-fronted albums and the Gamma years. Not forgetting another "lost" album - Open Fire.

Fly by night is really cool! Myself I have framed the debutalbums by Angel, Starz and 70's UK band Dirty Tricks. All great covers and awesome music.

Anyone familiar with 70's band Diamond REO? They recorded three albums between 75-79 and the first and the last of those are, IMO, rubbish. But the one in the middle, Dirty Diamond, is pure Class. A prime example of how great hårdrock from that era can be. Mean, hard, heavy and with a guitarsound so Perfect it blows You away.

My first real footballhero, along with Kaiser Franz. This really hurts and is another reminder (as if we ever needed one) that time just marches on in an accelerating manner. Will never forget his tricks and turns on the pitch, a joy to watch.

Always liked Gary Moore when he was part of a group, Colosseum II, Thin Lizzy and especially G-Force - an album I feel is a bit overlooked. The guitarsound on that one is simply awesome.

Bridge To Mars is a 70's-influenced trio, a bit like early Rush, Stray and also 80's/90's vintage rockers Badlands and their debut album is out now. Really good stuff if you are into this kind of thing! Guitarplayer is JJ Marsh of the Glenn Hughes Band. Listen here for samples of the album http://bridgetomarsband.com/music

Despite the horrific sounds he's made while trying to sing the last years I consider Ozzy to be THE singer. Or "singer", rather. Despite his limitations he fits in in a weird way. Charismatic in his ön special way and, never forget, was around when those groundbreaking albums were recorded. I am sure HE was a huge inspiration to the actual songwriters in the band. And by that bearing a

Totalt agree! Fantastic album and one of the standouts from the best year in rock history. Good idea to keep Alex away, wouldn't have turned out this great had he interfered. Fave track; Outer Boogie. Or maybe Smouldering.

Produced by Hunter, yes and I have to say it isn't very often Posthumous albums are of this high quality! First Broken Home is also very good, especially the track "Death of Gog.

Drummer/singerfor pioneering hard rock band Sir Lord Baltimore has passed away. Garner was also fronting The Lizards in their early days. SLB's "Kingdom Come" from 1970 is a true classic when it comes to stonerlike, fast hårdrock. Great, highly original voice with true character.

"Live album" is the best live album lever. I think this one got it all; the intro, the crowd communication, the improvisation in the songs, the cover. My fave song of theirs have to be "I come tumblin".

A few of my friends back then, whose taste in music I trusted, said it was no good and in 1980 there was so many other good albums coming out so I didn't bother with it until years later. Turned out to be one great, wacky, unpredictable, humorous at times, oddball of an album. Fave track is "Nothing to say".
