  • 10cc: 10cc/How Dare You/Bloody Tourists/Sheet Music/The Original Soundtrack/Deceptive Bends- yeah, been on a bit of a 10cc kick these days. Up until recently, all I ever owned was a decent Hits collection, and I just decided I needed to investigate further. Glad I did, as there's some great material found on these classic albums. While at heart they were just a great pop band, there's also bits of prog, Queen styled rock opera, jazz, and more.

  • Peter Hammill: A Black Box- killer 1980 solo release from the VDGG leader. Some really creepy, haunting, and at times heavy stuff here, easily one of his greatest solo releases from the early period.

  • Black Crown Initiate: The Wreckage of Stars- I've cooled off on this one a bit after my initial first few spins, but it's still a very solid slice of modern progressive death metal.

  • Europe: Europe/Wings of Tomorrow/The Final Countdown/Out of This World/Prisoners in Paradise: Neat little 5 pack containing all of Europe's early releases. Some really great stuff here from a band who were much more than 'The Final Countdown'.

  • Praying Mantis: Time Tells No Lies- one of the original NWOBHM bands, these guys actually had more in common with acts like Styx, Giuffria, Magnum, and the like. Rich with soaring vocal harmonies, symphonic keyboards, and big guitar riffs.

  • Angel: Sinful/On Earth as it is in Heaven- two really solid albums from this underrated US hard rock act.

  • Robert Plant: The Principle of Moments/Manic Nirvana/Pictures at Eleven- any Led Zeppelin fan needs these in their collection. Three really good albums from the legendary singer.

  • Rush: ABC 1974 - killer rare early live release from a Cleveland radio broadcast. Get this one if you can find it!

  • Whitesnake: The Purple Album- really having a lot of fun with this one, as Coverdale & Co recreate classic MkIII & IV Deep Purple classics.

  • Venom: From the Very Depths- excellent new release from the extreme metal legends.

  • Gruesome: Savage Lands- love early Death? Then make sure you check this wonderful homage to Chuck S and the band.

  • Wishbone Ash: the whole damn catalog- been on a serious WA binge this last month or so. Such a a great band, so many styles, so many flavors, always some wonderful guitar work. Really enjoying the newer material too; Andy Powell has developed into a very strong vocalist to go along with his guitar skills.

  • Thin Lizzy: Live and Dangerous- just a classic live album...'nuff said!

  • Waysted: Vices- their debut is still their best. Underrated '80s metal gem.

  • Ten Years After: Recorded Live- new 2CD version of this live classic just got better. Alvin Lee & Co. just burn throughout this hot live set.

  • J. Geils Band: Love Stinks/Freeze Frame- two really fun, fun albums from this longstanding US rock act. Great summertime music!

  • Toto: XIV- latest release is another stellar collection of slick pop, hard rock, prog, and jazz fusion!
