One would be hard-pressed to find a band more perfectly symbolic of the good-times politics-be-damned esprit de cannabis that symbolized a good chunk of 70's rock. While the Beach Boys were busy becoming an anachronism, the Doobs effectively took their mantle, fusing an array of musical Americana - be it blues, country, folk, or gospel - into a remarkably popular string of albums and radio hits by simply asking not much more of us than to "Listen to the Music." And if they didn't get much more controversial than to declare "Jesus Is Just Alright," well, that was kind of the point. This Rhino anthology is typically exhaustive. All the familiar radio hits are here, as well as a good sampling of deep catalog from the band's various line-ups, not to mention a few standout Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons solo outings. Hardcore Doobie Bros. fans should be especially pleased by the fourth disc, which contains a wealth of outtakes and demos from the band's early '70s and '80s prime.

The Madcap Laughs is the debut solo album by the English singer-songwriter Syd Barrett. It was recorded after Barrett had left Pink Floyd in April 1968. The album had a chequered recording history, with work beginning in mid-1968, but the bulk of the sessions taking place between April and July 1969, for which five different producers were credited − including Barrett, Peter Jenner (1968 sessions), Malcolm Jones (early-to-mid-1969 sessions), and fellow Pink Floyd members David Gilmour and Roger Waters (mid-1969 sessions). Among the guest musicians are Willie Wilson from (Gilmour's old band) Jokers Wild and Robert Wyatt of the band Soft Machine.

Buckingham Nicks is probably the sole studio album by the American rock duo Buckingham Nicks. Produced by Keith Olsen, the album was released in September 1973 by Polydor Records. Buckingham Nicks is notable as an early commercial collaboration between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, both of whom later joined Fleetwood Mac.

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Karisma Records (KAR066)

All Rights Removed finds Airbag standing proud as a successor to the prog rock sound first played by the mighty Floyd so many years ago! Album number two carries on in an extremely similar vein, with latter day Floyd being a reference point across the six songs on All Rights Removed, although this time the melancholic moments of early Porcupine Tree, the straight laced Rock/Prog of The Pineapple Thief and even the odd hint of Talk Talk offer a little more deviation. Assured yet sprawling, the six songs on this album are not afraid to make a confident stab into epic territory, although there's always a thinly veiled commercial edge lurking beneath the Gilmouresque guitar slides and the moody keyboardian Rick Wrightisms.

An album that could easily have been called "Son of Yes." With rippling keyboard passages and crackling lead guitar, the sound is less intense and demanding than Yes, but also less interesting.

These are Landreth's earliest known recordings, half of them made in a single afternoon 1973 when he was just 22 years old, the other half recorded in 1977. They display Landreth in the wine of his youth, looking outward for inspiration, sounding more generally Southern than uniquely Louisianan. If you are seeking an album of Louisiana music, I suggest you look elsewhere. But if it is the long-lost first album of an acknowledged slide guitar king you seek, perhaps the finest of his generation, look no further. It is in your hands.

Despite being best known as the guitar slinger for Bay Area pop metallists Y&T, Dave Meniketti has always had a fondness for the blues, as heard throughout his first-ever solo album, 2000s On the Blue Side. Although it's not new for a metal guitarist to rediscover their blues roots (Gary Moore successfully reinvented himself as a bluesmen in the early '90s), Meniketti gets to show off his blues chops throughout. Included is an album-opening cover of James Brown's "Man's World," while Meniketti does a pretty darn impressive Billy Gibbons impersonation on "Angel on my Shoulder." He pays tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan on "Just Coastin'," and pours out his heart and soul on "Until Next Time." Those who have Meniketti pegged as merely a heavy metal guitarist will certainly change their tune after hearing On the Blue Side.

Grobschnitt is a phenomenon. Founded in 1970, the German Progressive band 2010 celebrated its 40th anniversary. Now, they are back with the live recording of the concept album "Rockpommel's Land" (1977) and enthusiastic as ever. If there is a Rockalbum that their listeners really put into the realm of fairy tales, it is "Rockpommel's Land" by the German rock legend Grobschnitt.

Borealis were a Canadian quartet (Paul Bradbury, Wayne Sturge, Mark Bradbury and David Hillier) who had the dubious honour of recording the first rock album in the Atlantic province of their home country. The year was 1972 and at that time the region was somewhat uninterested in anything other than the standard fair of country or folk music. Nevertheless, the group did score a hit of sorts, the single, and first cut on the album, In The End made it into the top ten in St Johns, Newfoundland for two months, possibly because, as the liner notes state "it was the least jarring to the region's many country fans". The song is fairly untypical of the rest of the ten-track album being a mid-tempo number with upfront vocals, gentle guitar and a wash of keyboards in the background. Rather lovely by all accounts…

Michael Head, former frontman of the Pale Fountains and current co-leader along with his brother John – who is also a Strand – of Brit pop outfit Shack, turns in a stellar chamber pop performance with Magical World of the Strands. Head, who is no stranger to either classy, baroque pop or neo-psychedelia, has composed an album of gorgeously illustrated songs that are lushly orchestrated by a standard rock quartet augmented by a flutist (Leslie Roberts) and a string quartet. The result is an album that, while little known, is a classic, a masterpiece of modern chamber pop.

Blueprint is the fourth album by Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher, released as a vinyl record in 1973. With his first band Taste and with his solo band up to this point Gallagher was one of the first guitarists to lead a power trio lineup. With Blueprint Gallagher included a keyboardist for the first time. For Blueprint Gallagher replaced drummer Wilgar Campbell with Rod de'Ath and decided to add Lou Martin, the keyboardist from de'Ath's previous band Killing Floor. This four-piece lineup was to be one of Gallagher's most successful resulting in many of his most popular songs and documented in live film and TV appearances on shows such as Rockpalast and the Old Grey Whistle Test.

Bon d'accord les titres sont connus, mais quelques fois il y a une légère modification de l'orchestration par rapport à la parution originale. D'aucuns le critique mais faire cela à l'age de 70 ans et bien chapeau. L'idée d'avoir pris les sons dans plusieurs concerts différents est un plus. Le concepteur de cette maquette a eu une bonne idée. Le troisième CD oui bon bof….

While they started out in the late '60s as a psychedelic band, delved into progressive rock, and even recorded an album in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Deep Purple achieved their greatest success as a strong, straightforward, hard rock band, anchored by the powerful guitar work of Ritchie Blackmore and the show-stopping vocals of Ian Gillan (and later David Coverdale)…

France's first and only full-fledged rock star, Johnny Hallyday was still a distinctly French phenomenon, never achieving worldwide recognition (partially because a good chunk of his repertoire consisted of French-language covers of early American rock hits). Other French artists may have been influenced by rock & roll, but none was as beholden to the original sources, or as enduringly successful, as Hallyday.
