Motörhead’s Legacy

By |March 25th, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk, Rock, The 70s, The 80s, The 90s|0 Comments|

Not every band can claim they’ve left a vast legacy that spans genres and decades. And not every band can make that claim while still being very much alive and kicking. Motörhead, however, can make this claim. Motörhead will tell you themselves that they are a mere rock and roll band. But everyone else […]

We usually don’t do posts for 1 song from a cassette, but we were just listening to this one and … IT ROCKS!

Best Band of the 70s?

By |March 22nd, 2014|All, Best Ever, Pop, The 70s|1 Comment|

The decade, 1970 – 1979, was a time of musical maturity. The newborn of the 60’s came into their own! Super-Stars appeared. But what band or vocalist or genre was considered the best of this decade? And how does one go about determining who the ‘best’ is?? Cassette sales? ABSOLUTELY! A tape that goes […]

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon

By |March 6th, 2014|1973, All, Best Ever, Pop, Rock, The 70s|1 Comment|

This cassette, which if you haven’t heard it, you must not like music from the 1970’s, spent 741 weeks on Billboard’s charts from 1973 to 1988. If you have listened, but the cassette means nothing to you, then Pink Floyd (or maybe all of progressive rock) is not for you.

If, like me, you find […]

Queen: My Favorite Role Model

By |March 4th, 2014|All, Pop, The 70s|2 Comments|

Here’s some background on me: I was born in 1989, and I am the younger of two daughters to a music, car, computer, and movie nerd who knows far too much trivia about most things.  My father has taught me everything I know about all four of those things, especially music.  So let me […]

    David Bowie: The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)

David Bowie: The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)

By |February 8th, 2014|1972, All, Best Ever, Pop, The 70s|0 Comments|

Now this is one of those albums you can never get enough of. It is one of those cassettes you find among your old man’s music, and steal it immediately, and hide it so that no one can take it away from you. It is excellent, conceptual and one of Bowie’s best works. It […]

Frank Zappa: 200 Motels (1971)

By |January 26th, 2014|1971, All, Movies, The 70s, You had to have been there|1 Comment|

Frank Zappa’s “200 Motels” represents the pinnacle of the Flo and Eddie era of “The Mothers of Invention.” It is also one of the most technically innovative pieces of its time, because the songs were not recorded in a sound studio and dubbed onto the movie—the audio for “200 Motels” was recorded in a […]

Frank Zappa: Sheik Yerbouti (1979)

By |January 26th, 2014|1979, All, Alternative, Rock, The 70s, You had to have been there|0 Comments|

The 70’s went out with a bang in the form of the incredible Frank Zappa’s slam on the Disco music. Mr. Zappa and his crew made the music they wanted to, and could care less if they made the charts or not. Radical social commentary that pulled no punches!! Definitely not for the meek […]

Billy Joel in the 70s and 80s

By |January 17th, 2014|All, The 70s, The 80s|0 Comments|

I would like to talk about an accomplished musician, a rocker, story-teller, and a composer of modern-day classical music. He has topped the charts many times, and has packed the house on a world-wide basis. He was the first ‘western’ artist allowed to perform in the Soviet Union, and he brought the house down! […]

Michael Jackson: Off The Wall (1979)

By |January 13th, 2014|1979, All, Best Ever, Pop, R & B, The 70s|0 Comments|

I remember listening to the Jackson 5 in the 70’s. All the Jackson boys and little Michael were on the radio and popular television shows including the Sonny and Cher along with the Ed Sullivan show. Later came the Jackson 5 cartoon on every Saturday morning. Little Michael was belting out the tunes and […]

Black Sabbath – Paranoid (1970)

By |January 5th, 2014|1970, All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, The 70s|1 Comment|

Now here we have a classic. Black Sabbath’s second cassette was maybe one of their most popular ones. It sold in millions of copies in the US, and some hits published on it are still their greatest. It was also the only Black Sabbath cassette to appear high on the UK Album Charts.  So, […]
