High Octane Warning – Early Rush on The Vault

Before Rush found the successful formula of their watered down sci-fi rock in the 1980's, there was a little 1970's band from Canada that just liked it raw and loud.  Very loud, as today's vinyl vault track will prove.  Let's get back to Fly By Night for the lead off track, Anthem.  With or without earplugs, around 5:20pm.  Out of town?  Listen live

Outer Planetary Wanderings – Today’s Vinyl Vault

The Planet P Project?  I'm guessing a question mark would come to many heads these days but there was a time when this one man band was on the radio and came up rather high on our top 5 requested songs of the day list.  Tony Carey, best known as Ritchie Blackmore's keyboard player during the formative years of Rainbow, leaving after only 2 years to go solo.  His fictional side project that we're getting into today

Art Rock From Ambrosia – Today’s Vinyl Vault

The word Ambrosia depicts a Greek mythical concoction that was thought to bring immortality.  These days it's a dessert drink, no matter if you're real or not.  It's also a band that Alan Parsons helped out in their mid 1970's beginnings.  The same band that later on made milky pop ballads like How M

Early Beatles – Today’s Vinyl Vault

One from the fab four today that dates back to 1964 and went unreleased for years, finally showing up on the Anthology 1 CD set in 1995.  Leave My Kitten Alone is a great example of the shapes of things to come.  Not the mop top pop that you might think of from those early years, this is heavier, for 1964

Woodstock – Dig It Dig It! Arlo Guthrie on Today’s Vinyl Vault

"Like I was rappin' to the fuzz man..."  Some unforgettable lines from a stoned Arlo Guthrie during his appearance at the 1969 Woodstock festival, which we'll get into today.  Sort of.  A popular number from any Arlo gig is Coming Into Los

Jimi Hendrix Fans – Don’t Miss Today’s Vinyl Vault

There was more than just "love" in the summer of 1967.  It was also the year that the world was introduced to Jimi Hendrix, via his debut, Are You Experienced?  His spaced out brand of psychedelia fit in perfect at the corner of Haight and Ashbury, as it did

Slip Into Your Red Leathers – Loverboy on Today’s Vault

Red leathers?  Yep.  They wore red leather pants.  And jackets.  Wow.  For me, the 1980's could not END soon enough.  I admit though, it sure is fun to look back on some of these bands.  Let's r

Aurora Rock – Spaced Out on Today’s Vinyl Vault

Australian space man Billy Thorpe came over here in the late 1970's and had a pretty big hit album with Children of the Sun.  Big enough in fact, it's all he's remembered for here, although he made many many other records and branched off into production among other things.  A very talented guy that was sadly silenced by a heart

Jeff Beck Jams – Today’s Vinyl Vault

Jeff Beck enjoyed a resurgence in popularity during the mid 1970's with his jazzed up rock jams that were surprising hits.  Much different from his pop/rock stuff with Rod Stewart and others just a few years before, these albums were nowhere near "commercially accessible", or whatever radio was looki
