Well, here we go, the second song from the next Foo Fighters album has been released and it’s…lacking. They’ve long been one of my favourite bands but this song just doesn’t do it for me. Take a listen for yourself:
I first became aware of Margo Price when she performed on Later… with Jools Holland in 2016. I’m not really a huge fan of country music. It’s a genre I have tried to get into a couple of times but failed. However Margo Price’s combination of incredible music, songwriting and singer makes the genre a lot more appealing to me. And as a result, I absolutely love this EP.
Fame, released in 1975 and co-written by John Lennon, is one of my all-time favourite Bowie tracks so being able to hear the isolated vocals is incredible. Take a listen:
Nearly two months after his passing, the first song from Gregg Allman’s final studio album has been released. It’s an album that Gregg had been working on for a while before his death and My Only True Friend is exceptional. Take a listen:
Released six months after the death of founding member Brian Jones, Let It Bleed saw The Rolling Stones evolve musically and set the foundation for their next four albums with replacement guitarist Mick Taylor. He only features on two of the songs on Let It Bleed but their sound over the next six years would change drastically compared to what came before and it all started with this legendary album.
In 18th installments of my CLASSIC ALBUM SERIES I’m yet to cover a Led Zeppelin album, but that changes now with the incredible Led Zeppelin IV. Released in 1971, their fourth album is my favourite of theirs and features eight incredible songs. Every album after this in my opinion struggled to match the greatness of the songs on this album, aside from perhaps Physical Graffiti. But there’s no doubt when I say this one album contained their best work, their most consistent songs and their most focused and driven playing.
