A pretty random mix of tunes from 1988 to 2005 inspired by opening song “Life Floats By” by The Jayhawks and the closer “I’ve Changed” by The Josh Joplin Group. The rest just seemed to flow.
This is part of series called “First Five” which features tracks from an artist’s first five albums. I usually exclude the big hits and /or popular songs, but not always. Also I prefer not to include live albums or compilations, but sometimes I do.
Jethro Tull albums featured in this mix:
This Was (1968)
Stand Up (1969)
Thick As A Brick (1972)
My top ten favourite songs from David Bowie’s short-lived TIn Machine project.
“Tin Machine were an English-American hard rock band formed in 1988, famous for being fronted by English singer-songwriter David Bowie. The band consisted of Bowie on lead vocals and guitar, Reeves Gabrels on guitar, Tony Sales on bass, and Hunt Sales on drums. Guitarist Kevin Armstrong was an unofficial fifth member of the band, playing on both the first studio album and first tour.” – Wikipedia
Disclaimer: I have decided to limit myself to only ten tunes, so of course some of my other favourites have been omitted.
Tribute to the blues world of The Rolling Stones, including many of their roots and influences.
This is part of my “Old, New, Borrowed & Blues” series which features a bunch of old tunes, a few brand new songs, a handful of cover versions and all blues.
Based on a mixtape I created in 1990 to try and show the progression of rock & roll through hard rock to metal with a special emphasis on great riffs. I have mostly included songs that were released as singles rather than album tracks.
This is part of my “Old, New, Borrowed & Blues” series which features some old tunes and live versions, a few more recent songs, out-takes and remixes, a handful of cover versions and a blues-ey track.
