2001: a space odyssey – Music from the Motion Picture Sound Track

2001: A Space Odyssey is a soundtrack album of the film with the same name, released in 1968. The soundtrack is known for its use of many classical and orchestral pieces. 

If you’ve ever seen the movie you will relate to this soundtrack and appreciate it. I’m a rock fan however this album sent chills down my spine. The movie was a Stanley Kubrick production.

Traffic – On The Road

On The Road is a live album by the rock band Traffic, released in 1973 and recorded live in Germany.

My copy is only a one record album and I’m not sure why, it’s supposed to be a 2 record set.

Clean sound definitely has jazz and progressive rock influence. Haven’t heard this one in a long long time and it was surprisingly good.

Foo Fighters – Back and Fourth documentary

Dave Grohl and other members of the Foo Fighters discuss the band’s music. The initial release was March 15, 2011 and directed by James Moll.

Excellent documentary showing the struggles of putting band members together that are compatible with each other. Interesting to watch where all these musicians came from.

Must watch!
