All You Zombies – Don’t Miss Today’s Vinyl Vault!

The Hooters, having nothing to do with orange hot pants or sub par restaurant food, were an American pop rock act that peaked during the 1980's.  I should say "are" because the founding members still

Want ‘Action?’ – Sweet! Don’t Miss Today’s Vinyl Vault

1970's British pop rockers Sweet get a turn today on the Vault.  We're getting into their 'Give Us A Wink' set from 1976, the first album they produced on their own, and the first one since the career crowning 'Desolation Boulevard' a few years before.  Well, how do you top that one?  You don't.  Although there were high p

Steppenwolf Fans – Don’t Miss Today’s Vinyl Vault

The "Way Back Machine" heads to 1969 today when John Kay was firmly planted in anti-war mode.  Of course, who wasn't then, but Steppenwolf were particularly good at it.  The lengthy title track Monster not only deals wit

Forgotten Yes – Today’s Vinyl Vault

By 1977, the days of early 70's progressive rock were beginning to wane, as was the career of Yes.  They released their hit album 'Going For The One' that year, but its success paled in comparison to the earlier stuff, and possibly, one good reason why you never hear anything from it anymore.  It was big for a time though, and you may recall the single from it th

Rarely Heard John Lennon – Today’s Vinyl Vault

The last album John Lennon made during his lifetime was 'Double Fantasy' in 1980, the year we lost him.  For many fans, this album conjures up horrible memories during the Christmas season that year, but with positive little ballads like Woman and Watching The Wheels, making it all the easier.  There is one that still brings chills, appropriately called I'm Losing You, much more

Who’s on Today? Tommy – The Vinyl Vault

Peter Townshend's 1969 masterpiece 'Tommy' really isn't remembered much these days.  Most classic rock programmers prefer other faves like 'Who's Next' and 'Who Are You.'  Those may not sound as dated as Tommy does, you be the judge, as we feat

Cocker Power – Today’s Vinyl Vault

 

"Cocker Power" was a term circulating the music industry in the early 1970's when Joe Cocker was enjoying immense popularity stemming from his knock-out performance at Woodstock.  Sadly though, he enjoyed just as many belts of booze, which may have cut off the peak years a little early.  Even tho

Billy Squier Fans – Don’t Miss Today’s Vinyl Vault

The debut album from Billy Squier came in 1980 called "The Tale of the Tape" and wasn't nearly as big as it's follow up would be.  As a matter of fact, he drove his car to a handful of radio stations that year handing them out to programmers, ours was one.  I still remember him sitting in the reception area alo

David Gilmour’s Pink Floyd – Today’s Vinyl Vault

In 1987, Pink Floyd fans were on top of the world upon hearing their hero's were releasing new music.  Some of the fans excitement was short lived, however, when "Momentary Lapse of Reason" was released that year.  Is this Floyd?  Well, kind of.  There was no Roger

A High Octane Doobie – Today’s Vinyl Vault

One of the biggest albums in 1973 was 'The Captain and Me' by the Doobie Brothers, which now, reads like a greatest hits set.  It was huge, thanks to the big hits China Grove and Long Train Runnin', and the not so big hits Natural Thing and Dark Eyed Cajun Woman, plus their popular concert piece, Without You, which may have been the hardest thing the band ever did - uncharacteristically so.  It got FM play back in the day so you may

Rarely Heard Fleetwood Mac – Today’s Vinyl Vault

I recall the 1975 self titled Fleetwood Mac album being a breath of fresh air that year.  They weren't the superstars they'd become yet, and they played a serious brand of well done pop rock, which was a stark contrast from the goofy, have a nice day, chia pet 70's going on all around us.  Even after all this time, I don't mind hearing certain thin
