17 Oct 2008, 19:50 by sablespecterDeep Purple / Smoke on the Water / Machine Head (5) / Mar 1972
sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1972 (RDF: 71%)
As with the previous selection, I suppose this isn't a surprise choice. (Many of the AotY awards probably won't be.) And many of the selections will be so classic that I won't have much to say that hasn't been said elsewhere. This one in particular has such a great story: recorded in about two weeks with the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio while holed up at the Montreux Grand Hotel in December 1971, after the place they were supposed to record at - the Casino - burned to the ground. But of course, from that they got the inspiration for today's fabulous selection and provided the world of metal with one of its most definitive riffs of all time!
Definitely check out the Classic Albums: Machine Head DVD when you get a chance, and you can read details in this book.
In terms of my own experience, I came 'round to this album first of all DP albums, sometime in junior high. …
16 Oct 2008, 10:13 by AlexboyCOThe German and European music scene started to find their own way to rock
at the end of the 1960s. Many new names appeared and some of them
did find what they were looking for.
Here are some of the bands, which should be remembered as pioneers,
the creators of something that was called
though each of the sounds was different!

Scorpions / Pictured Life / Virgin Killer (1) / Oct 1976
At last! With a CD copy of this album as a complement to one which I have only on cherished vinyl, I have now added one more piece to one of the most bothersome incomplete series in my digital collection*: my favorite era of Scorpions, featuring Uli Jon Roth, spanning from Fly To The Rainbow through Tokyo Tapes.
This is their gritty hard rock of the 70s featuring that awesome bluesy/classical guitar work of Roth. After he left in 1978 - and ever since - it's been Rudolf Schenker's more mainstream-oriented style of guitar rock that's dominated the Scorpions sound.
Nothing against Matthias Jabs who replaced Roth, and it's true that the era after Roth from Lovedrive through Crazy World was the most commercially-successful and contributes lots of personal favorite Scorpions tracks to my library (though my own…

Fly To The Rainbow
Scorpions play some interesting proto-metal there, very reminiscent of the early Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. It's only with the Virgin Killer that they became progressively more and more commercial.
After the departure of Uli Jon Roth they basically became sell-outs, IMO, although that's precisely what made them popular. Sad, ain't it?
3 Mar 2008, 06:15 by sablespecterSparked by a question from kaleidoscopick, I thought it might be good for fellow vinyl fans to have a look into their collections and ante up!
