Nazareth – Razamanaz


Razamanaz is the third studio album by the Scottish band Nazareth, released in 1973. It was the band’s first LP record to break the charts and was produced by Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.

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.

Look at Yourself is the third album by British rock band Uriah Heep released in 1971.

My wife and I have the same album, naturally hers is in better shape than mine. This album has a loud rock sound along with some quieter moments. Uriah Heep is classified as progressive rock and heavy metal.

Led Zeppelin – IV


The untitled fourth studio album by the rock band Led Zeppelin, commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, was released in November 1971 by Atlantic Records and was produced by guitarist Jimmy Page.

My copy of this album still has the plastic on it and the gatefold has never been opened. When I first got this album I heard “Black Dog” and I was WOW this is definitely Zeppelin. I’m sure everyone knows the song “Stairway to Heaven” as it is classic now.

When I first listened to the entire album some of the quieter songs weren’t heavy enough for me at the time. However I love all the songs on this album.

You gotta have it in your collection …. even digital!

Santana – Abraxas

Abraxas is the second studio album by the rock band Santana released in September 1970.

The biggest hits off this album are “Black Magic Woman” and “Oye Como Va”. I’ve had this album for decades and if I remember it was a trade for another album. I’m guessing I came out on top as this album is preserved in the National Recording Registry due to its “cultural, historic, or artistic significance.”
