Led Zeppelin – Houses of the Holy

Houses of the Holy is the fifth studio album by the rock band Led Zeppelin, released in March 1973 by Atlantic Records. As soon as I purchased this album I loved it, this is my 5th Led Zeppelin album. This group is one of the iconic bands of all time.

I love each song on this album! If you haven’t listened to Led Zeppelin before…get at it.

Max Webster – Live Magnetic Air

Live Magnetic Air is a live album by Canadian rock band Max Webster. The album (pardon the shrink wrap) was released in 1979 and was certified gold. The big hit on this album is Paradise Skies.

I’ve always liked Max Webster and Kim Mitchell, Great Canadian Band. The sound on this album is rock/Yes like. Kim Mitchell went on to be a bigger act than Max Webster.

Track Listing:

1 America’s Veins” (Kim Mitchell, Pye Dubois)

2 “Paradise Skies” (Mitchell, Dubois)

3 “In Context Of The Moon” (Mitchell, Dubois)

Cheech & Chong’s – Wedding Album

Cheech & Chong’s Wedding Album is a 1974 comedy album by Cheech & Chong. These two guys (Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong) are hilarious, the first day I brought home this album it made me laugh.

These guys have a few movies out also, the one I remember the most is “Up in Smoke”. It’s just a funny stupid show that got away with a lot in the day.

Bob & Doug McKenzie – Great White North

The Great White North is a Canadian comedy album by the fictional television characters Bob and Doug McKenzie (portrayed by actors Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas), released in 1981 by Anthem Records.

I had a request yesterday from coffee row to blog this comedy album. When I first bought this record I couldn’t quit laughing. It’s pretty stupid when you think of it, the big hit off it is “Twelve Days of Christmas”. I had the opportunity to let my son in law listen to it lately and he thought it was funny.

This is just a funny, dumb and brainless album that you should listen to. This album is based on the SCTV skit that was on a Canadian Network.

Track Listing:

1 This is our album, eh?” – 3:40

2 “The Beerhunter” – 2:23 This sketch is a beer-drinking game based on The Deerhunter: Russian Roulette with beer cans.

3 “School Announcements” – 1:52 This sketch features Doug (Thomas) as a school vice-principal who encourages his charges to “have a beer and talk” at his office.

4 “The Miracle of Music” – 0:41

5 “Peter’s Donuts” – 3:02

6 “Gimme A Smoke” – 1:59

10 “Doug’s Mouth” – 3:33

11 “Elron McKenzie” – 2:28

12 “Black Holes” – 2:06 There is a backwards message on this track.

13 “You Are Our Guest” – 2:14 The duo’s exaggerated accents pronounce “are” and “our” as homophones for comedic effect. Listeners play the “guest” by reading the enclosed script.

14 “Ernie’s Mom” – 1:54

15 “The Twelve Days of Christmas” – 4:42

16 “Ralph The Dog” – 3:11
