Fireball Ministry / Turn to Stone / Sucking the 70's: Back in the Saddle Again (II-7) / Nov 2006
These two selections are from two of the three multi-artist compilations of stoner rock that I picked up in 2008. The third being And Back To Earth Again. All three are among the best of all of the multi-artist comps that I own.
These two 2-disc collections feature stoner rock/southern metal covers of classic Seventies cuts. If you know stoner rock, you know the holy hesher days of the 70s are the ultimate era of inspiration to them, along with hot rods and hot chicks. (Just look at the cover art...you can judge these discs by the cover...)
Some of these bands are no longer around, and some of them are well-known, but all of them are good. Nearly every single track on these four discs is worth owning. They're not just simple rote regurgitation of the original songs, and a few of them have been "reinterpreted" as opposed to copied.
