In need of music suggestions
« on: October 03, 2018, 05:36:16 PM »
I listen to music a lot while at work (Spotify), but am getting bored with the albums I've downloaded.  So I'm looking for suggestions for new albums.  What are some of your favorites?  I'm partial to rock from the 60s to the 80s, but will take any suggestions.

Thanks!

Traveling Wilburys if you don't have them...did at least 2 albums..

There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

Great nations rise and fall.

I never heard of Whiskey Myers, but with a name like Whiskey I'm interested.

I love '70s & ''80s rock, '80s new wave, hard rock, heavy metal, some pop -- as long as it's not the no-talent music of today, alternative, electronic, jazz. Just about anything except country, rap, noise music, and anything they play in clubs. I buy a lot of CDs and tend to go for things that I don't hear on the radio. As soon as I heard Deborah Henson-Conant playing jazz on a harp I fell in love with her music. Albums 2-4 were really good IMO. Jean Luc-Ponty is a master of the electric violin and has dozens of jazz solo albums. He used to play with Frank Zappa and a lot of other people. I'm a big fan of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and all the usual rock groups from that era. I'll take a look at some of the CDs I have here. Besides the bands others have mentioned you may want to try:

Asia
Atlanta Rhythm Section
Jeff Beck
Blind Faith -- the only album they ever made
The Byrds
Candlebox
Cracker
Robert Cray Band (blues) -- Strong Persuader
Cry Of Love
Days of The New, the first (orange) album, not the green or red
Deep Purple
Thomas Dolby
Peter Gabriel
Heavy Metal movie soundtrack -- the only cassette tape I ever wore out
INXS
Chris Isaak -- Heart Shaped World
Joe Jackson
Jackyl -- their first album
James Gang
Jethro Tull
Living Color -- Vivid
Madness
Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Meat Puppets -- Too High To Die. Never expect their lyrics to make any sense.
The Steve Miller Band
Molly Hatchet
The Moody Blues
Ted Nugent
Gary Numan -- The Pleasure Principle, and Telekon, if you can stand his voice. I like the viola parts.
Mike Oldfield -- Tubular Bells, 1973 album
The Alan Parsons Project
Power Station
The Pretenders
Queensryche -- Empire
Rainbow
Santana
Seal -- first 2 albums
Seven Mary Three
Silverchair -- Frogstomp, from when they were only 15 years old
Soft Cell
Soul Asylum
Soundgarden
Spinal Tap
Sponge -- Rotting Pinata
Steely Dan
Al Stewart
toad the wet sprocket -- fear
Traffic
Robin Trower
UFO
the verve pipe -- villains
Rick Wakeman
Whitesnake
Steve Winwood
Yardbirds
Yes
Neil Young

That should keep you busy for a while. I have over 500 CDs plus some tapes and vinyl if you'd like more suggestions.

And I have to mention the boys from Frankenmuth, one of the hottest bands around, Greta Van Fleet. The lead singer sounds a lot like Robert Plant.

I forgot Brother Cane. I like their album Seeds the best.

I'm more of a Western music fan - NOT C&W and sure as heck not "Country", at least the modern stuff. People like Ian Tyson, Brenn Hill, Joni Harms, real cowboy singers (they are all working ranchers/farmers).

About the only thing I can suggest is Talking Heads, still like their Stop Making Sense album.

Nice... My tastes vary too..

Halestorm
Aaron Lewis
5 Finger Death Punch
Seldom Scene
Allison Krauss and Union Station
Chris Stapleton
Pentatonix.... old stuff while Avi was still with them. Not impressed with their choice of fill-ins.
Walk off the Earth
Johnny Cash
Styx
Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver
Dailey and Vincent

I've got a much longer list but you get the idea. Variety helps cure the boredom. My parents raised me on bluegrass and classic country, I found rebel country and hard rock along the way. I also like just about anything that produces GOOD harmony. There is not a lot of rap that I will listen to, but some of Kid Rock or Limp Bizkit works too.

Lately I spend a lot of time on my pandora feed for Aaron Lewis radio or I will listen to another station called Iron Horse radio.... think classic and current rock in bluegrass/country format.

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

Most of that already mentioned!

Country today is just pop music wearing a straw hat...

Old country is fine!
