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!

Uriah Heep – Look at Yourself

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.

I’ve always like this album and thought it was time for another spin.

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.”
