Underrated Albums

Had this Convo last night and I have to go with Led Zeppelin's "Presence" - This album was so shadowed yet contained some of their best work - I will leave off the obvious in "Nobody"s Fault But Mine" as that tune got radio play years after the Album was released - Yet, so many other good tunes never saw the light of day unless you bought the Album - I use to trip balls to this entire album - I miss mindless wasted youth days......

A few favs

A True Battle March



A slight delve into the Mild Blusey side



And even deeper Blues with shades of Zep 1 (love how the fist 22 seconds don't really match the tune)

I think Physical Graffiti is a much better album than Presence, but that's just me.

Here are my top 5 (at the moment)

1. The Band - Self Titled
2. ZZ Top - Fandango
3. Johnny Winter - Saints and Sinners
4. King's X - Dogman
5. Humble Pie - Smokin'

Physical Graffiti had "Kashmir" on it and was one of their bigger radio hit songs - That album got press in it's day - Presence sat dark for years and was not until they began playing "Nobody's Fault" that it was discovered - PG has some of my Fav Zep songs ever and it truly shows the breadth of talent those 4 had

Yeah and I HATE Kashmir

I was never a real big fan of Presence...though Nobody's Fault But Mine has some crazy difficult breaks and stops in it.

And five, now this is the most important, Rat. When it comes down to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV.
And yet the next scene we see him in the car and Kashmir is playing, that's not on Zeppelin IV!! That's why he didn't get laid.

They experimented with Presence and is the main reason it never did anything - All their other stuff had radio play off it - I have to say song for song, I'll put Zep 2 up against anything - How can you not just go fucking nuts when this is the last track on the album? (Zep 1 and Zep 2 show their love for the Blues)

When the guitar kicks in, I wanna go fuking nuts and smash shit

Zep 1 is my favorite. How Many More Times....good god.

You lads make me proud to be a CLSB member

Cook - 3 had some GREAT work to it but I found myself drawn to the Acoustics they displayed on that album in "Tangerine" and prob one of my top 5 fav Zep tunes "Thats The Way" - Also on 3, 'Out On The Tiles" was a god damn jam too

Now, for their Freshman release in Zep 1 - Dude, soooooooo Blues Inspired it was sick and I men sick in a good way - Great "story telling" songs - How many more times made my 2nd nut drop, True Story - I have to say though, I still remember the first time I heard "Your Time is Gonna Come" after being blown away by Side 1 of the Album, you flip it and hear that? - With the Church Organ? - WOW

Zep 3 Fav - Song (well, this version) still gives me goose bumps


And for one, wow - Side 2, song 1

Discovering Zepplin as a kid is like discovering a new element on the periodic chart, it changes everything you think you know about music. I thank my brother for having them on cassette.

Indeed - I heard them for the 1st time when I was 9 from one of my Brothers friends - It's kind of funny, watch "Dazed & Confused" and that was my older Bro & Sis to a fucking T - They use to sit me down and explain Rock & Roll to me - I later learned that they were baked like beans when they did it and laughed at how nuts I went to music - Fuckers - My oldest Bro still has a turn table and PLENTY of Vinyl - When he and I get together now, it is Scotch, Red Wine and the likes of on Vinyl:

ZZ Top
Deep Purple
The Who
Boston
BTO
Skynyrd
OLD Aerosmith

I was lucky to have an old man with a custom made album case and gigantic Klipsch speakers in the living room. 2000 albums in that album case, seriously. My Dad was a rock drummer...and a damn good one. He's led me to so much great music, so much of it overlooked in large part by the music world today.

The album that got me in to music? Deep Purple - House of Blue Light. I put my dad's headphones on and hit play, randomly, and that tape was in the walkman.

That's not their best work, but it led me to Machine Head, Burn, Who do We Think We Are, Stormbringer, In Rock, Come Taste the Band, Perfect Strangers...sonofabitch is Deep Purple good.

...and Bug, you know how you said "old" Aerosmith, same goes for ZZ Top. First Album, Rio Grande Mud, Fandango, Tres Hombres, Deguello, TeJas...holy shit.

to it all

You guys ever dig on Savoy Brown? They were Foghat before they were Foghat.

Never got into them - Foghat came later in my teens for me - Headphones for me were all about "Dark Side of The Moon" - I had a big old pair of Koss "Ear Goggles" that I saved up Paper Route $$ to buy - I remember being soooooooo freaked out by hearing shit like that in my head that I just wanted to get my hands on anything I could to experience more - Deep Purple was great "blow it out your fucking speakers" rock & roll

Then, came the Band that I first got "fucked up" to at a live show - The worlds greatest party band and some damn talented musicians, "The Mighty J Geils Band" - This introduced me to cats getting fucked up while on stage and jammin their fucking hearts out - The crowd was dancing and smoking and not a bad vibe in the house - One of my Top 5 Fav Bands of all time (cared not for their new crap)



and how can ya not love?

Hmmm - Kind dig it - Can hear the Foghat Roots for sure

Not to get all Hollywood, but this guy's music played in my house as a kid everyday for years - Either of my Sisters or Brother (or their friends, our house was the cool house to hang at, cuz of the pool I think) had this music playing all the time - I got in trouble in school for reciting this song in front of my class when we had to "tell a story of our own" - I did not even think that any kid my age would know this man but my teacher did - Busted

Another goose bump song

A. Dog Day is one of the Greatest Movies Ever Made
B. Madman was/is one of his best works

I saw him on "Inside the Actors Studio" and it was a 3 hr episode - He spoke of how he and Bernie worked together - Bernie would come over with the Lyrics, hand them to "Reginald" and he would go into the other room that housed nothing but a Piano and knock out a song while Bernie had tea with Reggie's folks - Did this for YEARS and many great songs came of it

Madman to me is Levon - What a great "story" - That is what music these days lacks - Soul and Story
