Led Zeppelin 4

Yes, I know that’s not what it’s really called. But it was easier than looking for all the individual runes. Some Historical Context Another album that I feel like I’ve known forever. Although, I know I haven’t known it as long as something like A Night at the Opera. This was something that definitely knew… Continue reading Led Zeppelin 4


This is unusual – a classic album that I’ve never heard of. I’ve never even heard of the artist. I’m looking forward to this. Some Historical Context I’ve got absolutely nothing to go here.

In fact, I can’t really remember when I first… Continue reading Highway 61 Revisited

Here are my thoughts. Some Historical Context I had this album soon after it came out in… Continue reading A Night at the Opera
