  • Queensryche: Condition Human- this one made my #3 of 2015, and it's lately become my lost listened to album, one that keeps getting better and better. Honestly, I think Condition Human easily sits up there with The Warning, Rage for Order, Operation Mindcrime, and Empire as the best of their discography. Also, caught the band recently in Arizona and the current line-up is a beast!

  • Automatic Man: Automatic Man- ever wonder what guitarist Pat Thrall was doing before hooking up with the legendary Pat Travers? Look no further than this spectacular debut from San Francisco act Automatic Man, which not only featured Thrall but Santana drummer Michael Shrieve. Great mix of funk, prog, hard rock, and space rock, with killer grooves and lots of hooks, and, oh yeah, awesome guitar from Thrall.

  • Janis Joplin: I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!/Pearl/Cheap Thrills/Big Brother and the Holding Company- after reading the bio 'Pearl', of course I'd want to revisit the Joplin catalog, which has plenty of great material with the three different bands she'd been with in her short career.

  • Max Webster: Max Webster/High Class in Borrowed Shoes/Mutiny Up My Sleeve/A Million Vacations/Universal Juveniles- ahhh, the criminally underrated Max Webster. Just finished reading Martin Popoff's great book on this band, and immersing myself once again in their eclectic brand of hard rock, prog, and Zappa influenced zaniness. This band should have been huge.

  • Queensryche: The Warning/Rage for Order/Operation Mindcrime/Empire/Promised Land- hadn't listened to these in a while, but thanks to my obsession with their new album, I've gone back to some of the classic with Tate once again.

  • The Electric Flag: A Long Time Coming- debut album from this short lived blues/rock/soul powerhouse featuring the guitar talents of Mike Bloomfield as well as drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles.

  • Motorhead: Bad Magic- goodbye Lemmy, you went out on a hight note!

  • David Bowie: The Man Who Sold the World/Aladdin Sane/Diamond Dogs/Station to Station- well, since his passing just a few days ago, I've been spinning a lot of Bowie classics, but these most of all. Another tragic lost here in the early days of 2016.

  • Theo Travis' Double Talk: Transgression- do not miss this incredible set of new jazz-fusion/prog tunes from the veteran Travis and his new band!

  • Opeth: Deliverance & Damnation- what better way to revisit these 2 classics than on the new box set! Wonderfully remastered with some great new mixes on the bonus DVDs!
