The Beatles- 1967-1970
Bad Company-10 From 6
Jeff Beck- Wired
Sorry for the no new posts in two days. Friday night I had to work a double and yesterday, I did listen to a few songs off the Bad Company record, but was too tired to finish it. So today I did 3.
First off, The Beatles album is an immediate throw away. I knew it was in real bad shape when I pulled it out of the Half Price grab bag box, but I thought it was worth holding onto. Oh well, my Beatles collection just keeps getting smaller and smaller.
The Bad Company record I bought at Waterloo on Friday night. I found it for $2.99 so it was too cheap to pass up. Plus I've had "Run With The Pack" and "Bad Company" in my head for a couple of days now. This is the record to own by them if you are just wanting the hits. 9 of the 10 tunes are killer. I could do without "Live for The Music". I'm not opposed to getting some Bad Company catalog, but this will do for now. I'm sure they have some great deep cuts.
Currently listening to the very awesome Jeff Beck record. This dude still just does not get enough recognition. Hell, he's way better than Clapton if you want my opinion. I bet if you asked 10 schmucks under the age of 30 who Jeff Beck is, 7 of them would have no idea. I wonder if there is some sort of bias because he wasn't a singer also. Or that his solo albums are instrumental. I had the pleasure of seeing live once and was totally blown away. Dude will always make my Top 5.
So if you like the jazz/rock/fusion/instrumental, then this is the album for you. I got one more of his to listen to after this, but I'll be pleasantly surprised if it's as good as Wired. Now I need to go get Blow By Blow.
