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.

Looking åt that list reminds me how much I dislike powerballads. Why bother with Sister Christian when You Can Still Rock In America?

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".

Both very good albums and on Withford/St.Holmes it was great hearing two guitar players who took a backseat in their other bands really stepping up.

I think it depends on which original members are left in the band. If I use Queen as an example, it does feel more "right" with May/Taylor than should it be Taylor/Deacon. The most important member of Foreigner is still around. Would be strange with just Dennis Elliott as the only original member, wouldn't it. Music is very much a nostalgia thing for me. I want to hear the old songs be

First Marino/Mahogany Rush-album bought was "Strange Universe" from 1975 but the album from which these videos are, "What's Next" is my favourite one. Too bad he has, semmingly stopped releasing new music, "Eye Of The Storm" from 2000 being his last/latest.

Japan's "Gentlemen take polaroids" and "Quiet life" are timeless classics and so is "Anywhere" by New Musik.

Thanks for posting, highly enjoyable! Love it! Saw them open up for Ted Nugent in 1976, with Kenny Driscoll still in the band.

Great album and the last good Scorpions album. But anything from the Uli Jon Roth years beats it.

Not a big Toto-fan but "White Sister" is an awesome track. And so are "Endless" and "Isolation".

Saw them some years ago play in a tiny little club in Malmoe, Sweden. Me and about 25-30 others.... A shame, they deserve more. Great band.

That list has shrunk with each passing year. Not even my longtime heroes Kate Bush and Kansas can be trusted anymore.

Even though John Elefante and Mike Rynoski (Reno) are great singers the music of Kansas and Moxy respectively went for the worse when they came on board. Not necessarily their fault, but.... Same with Journey; a band that made far more interesting music pre-Perry.

"the blessing of his father"....there is a possibility he doesn't care what they do. As Mark Reale was the only constant factor, this band should be put to rest. But hey, go ahead and make an album of entirely new songs under the name Riot. In a live situation, though, just don't play anything from Rock City, Narita or Fire Down Under with a new line-up.

Black Country Communion is my favourite supergroup. Three, great GREAT studioalbums. One good, often forgotten, supergroup from the past is Emerson/Lake/Powell. Someone mentioned Transatlantic within "prog circles"...I say UK (Wetton/Holdsworth/Jobson/Bruford). Brilliant! Did someone mention Bad Company? If not it's alright....can't stand them.

Wouldn't call myself a Blackfootfan but I've always loved FLYIN HIGH. There were always some good tracks on most albums but not many enough. Blackfoot + Hensley was a strange liasion, almost like Queen + Paul Rodgers.
