Next batch of Rock Candy releases listed, due March 23rd. Two absolute classics & a third pretty good by a classic band. Two pomp classics only ever released in Japan, I think & consequently prohibitively expensive. Two by a band I don't know but I gather from comments are sought after. https://www.rockcandyrecords.co.uk/upcoming

About 4 years ago I was car sharing my daily commute with a work colleague. One day the topic of music formats came up & he couldn't believe that people were still buying CDs let alone any other physical format. I tried to tell him that there had be resurgence of interest in vinyl but he wasn't having any of it. He was of the opinion that everyone was downloading music now. You won't be su

As you know Carl my musical tastes while fundamentally in the Rock world, outside that they are all over the place ;-) So any kind of curated playlist sounds like an awful idea to me. I have had many conversations over the years with my close friends who are hardcore music nerds about our large & varied collections and how if no more new music was released (perish the thought) we'd stil

The end of physical/digital media? What a load of horseshit! New formats come & go as do the naysayers that poo poo older established formats. Yes this will probably happen at some point in the future, but NOT near future as we do NOT have the infrastructure to fully support the type of streaming that those who wish to re sell us our music collections or access to them, for a monthl

Just skimmed through (Blasphemy!) the album with my Mrs. Side 1 is pretty much perfect apart from the aforementioned 'Social disease'. I do think there is much to love about side 2 & i'd say all the tracks are of a similar quality, i.e. pretty damn decent but not their best. IMHO Re 'I'd Die For You', sounds too much like 'Runaway' to me, one of my all-time BJ songs & I didn't feel

Social Disease...By a country mile There are a few other songs that are average or very much 'Of their time' but still sound fine in the context of the album & when it was released. All of these are on side two or for the CD only folks, Raise Your Hands to Wild In The streets. I still like all of these but are not among the very best of Bon Jovi's songs IMHO

What festival would that be? It would seem as though the band are on their way back from Germany. According to their FB page - Friday, August 24, we have the honor of being co-headliner of the fantastic TRVEHEIM FESTIVAL in Munich Germany!!!!! We are thrilled to be returning to Germany to rock with YOU!!! ...

Q5 are playing the Camden Underworld Saturday 25th August 2018... I know many here poo poo'd 2016's New World Order album, i felt it was definitely below the standard of the first two but I still enjoy giving it a spin every so often. First time ever for the band in the UK so hopefully should be a blinder. I've only been waiting to see them live since 1984. According to their Facebook

It'll be interesting what titles they re-print, but yes no doubt they'll be pricey as they always have been. I usually try to restrict my Japanese vinyl to all-time faves & especially ones that are well produced. One title i'd love to get would be a particular pressing of Roger Waters - Pros & Cons Of Hitch Hiking on the CBS / Sony Master Sound DM Digital Mastering label. These so

There isn't a bargepole long enough for this piece of crap. Who in their right mind would allow this to touch any of their vinyl collection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPIJVdQkb1Q "It's truly one of the worst products I've ever had the misfortune to use.

Talk about preaching to the converted. Of course there is love for his AOR albums here. I'm sure there are a few naysayers but most of us love those albums. Michael Bolton - S/T & Everybody's Crazy are gold standard masterpieces. You only need to look at the musicians & songwriters credited. As mentioned the next two albums do have a few corkers & some duffers. After that...I
