  • Epitaph: Epitaph-always really liked this debut from German band Epitaph. Good mix of prog, hard rock, and a strange, almost Southern rock style. One of the '70s underground classics!

  • Jethro Tull: Nightcap-this 2CD set of rarities was a favorite of mine when it first came out in the '90s, and played it to death for a few years. Just pulled it out the other day after not hearing it in quite some time, and man, is that disc 1 killer! All those old Chateau D'Isaster Tapes recordings (the initial sessions for what would eventually become A Passion Play) are so awesome, arguably as good as what eventually became the finished album. Very different, but heavy, and epic!

  • Psycho Praxis: Echoes From the Deep-new Italian prog/hard rock discovery of mine, on the Black Widow label. Love Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Banco, PFM, etc? Then check these guys out!

  • Uriah Heep: Live-been grooving to this classic live set from 1973 lately. One of my favorites from my teens and still love it!

  • Gentle Giant: Three Friends-a lot of praise among fans always goes towards Octopus and In a Glass House as perhaps this bands best albums, but this one is the underrated gem in the catalog in my view.

  • King Crimson: Starless and Bible Black/Larks Tongues in Aspic- my favorite line-up and period of KC. Doesn't get much better than this!

  • Dream Theater: Dream Theater/Awake/Scenes From a Memory-seeing the band live last week has prompted me yet again to pull out their latest, as well as the 2 albums they are celebrating on this tour.

  • Rainbow: Rising- one of my favorite albums of all time! Never gets old-Dio, Powell, and Blackmore at their best!

  • Deep Purple: Burn- another all time favorite that just gets better with age.

  • Saint Vitus: the whole catalog- been binge listening to some classic doom lately, and what better band to do that to than the mighty Saint Vitus.

  • Pentagram: the whole catalog- see above. Another classic doom band that just has so many great albums.

  • Yes: Close to the Edge- gearing up to see the band this summer at Radio City Music Hall, where they will be playing all of this album, Fragile, other old favorites, and tunes from the soon to be released new CD.

  • Slayer: Show No Mercy/Haunting the Chapel/Hell Awaits- early Slayer in my opinion is the best Slayer. These, along with Reign in Blood, are the pinnacle of this bands career.

  • California Breed: California Breed- Glenn Hughes & Jason Bonham's new band is way cool, and a great followup to the awesome Black Country Communion. New CD out soon!

  • Kamchatka: I/II- first two albums from this Swedish hard rock trio are excellent, and a must hear for fans of '70s power trio bluesy heavy rock with blistering guitar work.

  • Christian Mistress: Possession-latest from this US heavy metal band is very strong. My first introduction to these guys.

  • Mount Salem: Endless- psychedelic doom with female vocals=a great combination!

  • Man: Live at the Rainbow 1972- just getting into this band for the first time. Sorry it took so long, as this Welsh act has been churning out quality hard rock for decades now.
