Groundbreaking indeed!

Advantages: Checking out an early gem!
Disadvantages: None

When the back catalogue of Jeff Beck is discussed the comment quite often centres around the albums 'Blow By Blow' and 'Wired'. My own favourites are from a much earlier period than these classic mid seventies releases. His debut album 'Truth' w ...

What does it all mean?

Advantages: Trippy experimental 60s album
Disadvantages: Bad drumming!

Pretties for You was Alice Cooper's first release in 1969 and anyone listening to it without being familiar with it would struggle to recognise it as Alice Cooper. The work is psychedelic rock n roll and sounds like The Doors with more emphasis put on gui ...

Hammer Of The Gods

Advantages: Heavy Rock overtones with strong blues and folk influence
Disadvantages: Not long enough
