I wont bother then, I only want hard rockin' stuff :P

Got a few Badlands tracks, this is great stuff!


If you like the Badlands stuff you'll probably like this: Jake E Lee - Retraced

It's a fantastic album of covers some of the classic rock tracks that influenced him as he was learning guitar.  Includes tracks originally by Procol Harem, Cactus, Free, Montrose, Robin Trower, etc.  It rocks.  :)

:D Hi Tom my turn !!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Pagans Mind - Enigmatic Calling Buy, Buy, Buy,  its there best imho. The others are great but EC will get you into them its very accesible.

Van Halen - Get the 1st one. There debut album. Its a great place to start.

Ozzy - Blizzard Of Ozz. Again the album that launched Ozzy into the stratosphere.

UFO - Strangers In The Night. Its got all of Michael Schenkers greatest riffs & songs on it. Its a classic live album. You`ll Love It !

You might want to try Iron Maiden. There back catalouge is going cheap on Amazon at the moment. I would advise 7th Son Of A 7th Son its under a fiver & its aguably Maidens best moment.

Thats enough for you to be getting on with !!!  :P

Cheers for the replies :)

Philly, which Badlands album would you say is the must-have? The song "High Wire" is the best I've heard by em so far.

I got given a Badlands tape years ago by my mother-in-law's ex boyfriend, he told me repeatedly that it was the best thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, he was such a class-a w***er that I never actually bothered to listen to it and may have actually thrown it away some time back.


DOH!!!

If you were only getting one, the first album.  At the time, I found Voodoo Highway a bit too bluesy in comparison, but I absolutely love it now.  And Dusk wasn't even released in Ray Gillen's lifetime so I was expecting a load of half-finished leftovers, but it actually sounds like a great completed album.

So basically, they're all 100% essential  :wink: .  But if you must pick one, go for Badlands.


There was a lot of tension in that band.  I went to see them in 91 (maybe early 92?) and they announced before the tour that Gillen had left (or been sacked) and replaced with a female blues/gospel singer.  But then they appeared on stage with Ray!  It was obvious the band were really angry with him - Jake never looked at him once, and at one point Greg Chaisson stood on Ray's mike lead so he had to sing the whole song bent over!  Weird, but it was a fantastic gig!
BKPs I've Got:  RR, BKP-91, ITs, VHII, CS set, Emeralds
BKPs I Had:  RY+Abraxas, Crawlers, BD+SM

Butting in here, but I'd say Voodoo Highway and then the self title debut.  Reason being that the production is less 80s glam orientated and the guitars are rawer souding... which I like.

Dusk is a release of some demos that were recorded and were meant to be on the 3rd album which never got released originally due to them being dropped and then Ray Gillen dying.  It's good, but due to the demo nature not quite up to the other two.

My ideas on this: some over looked gems and great rock albums

-UFO : Strangers in the Night  and Walk on water

-Lynch Mob - Wicked sensation and I'd check out Under lock and Key/ Back for the attack by Dokken too

-Van Halen : Early Roth stuff . Ist, 2nd , FAir Warning and 1984 are the better ones

-Ozzy : Blizzard of Ozz, Diary of a madman, Tribute, No rest for the Wicked, Ultimate Sin

Badlands
- 1st album; Badlands (great songs like High Wire and Seasons, Devil's stomp)

Great White : Once Bitten & Twice Shy (fab stuff and way overlooked)

Scorpions :+1 to what Philly said

Aerosmith : Toys in the attic & Rocks

Def Leppard
: High and Dry - their best guitar album!!
(Sounds similar to & as good as Back in Black by AC/DC)

Kiss : Alive (Alive 1- not Alive2 or Alive3) & Revenge

Slade : A greatest hits or Slade Alive ( more great songs than you'd ever know)

Europe
- Start from the Dark  (a total shocker if you think they are just "Final Countdown")
www.felineguitars.com - repairs & custom built
Great fretwork!

Gotta have Blizzard and Diary; they're classics, even though to my mind there are ... some dodgy songs on 'em :) and I was never a huge fan of Randy Rhoads.  Possibly one "had to be there", which I wasn't, particularly. :)  But I've got these records, despite not being a huge fan of Ozzy's solo career. Definitely some keepers on them!

Oh, I have a strange soft spot for the oft maligned Live at Budokan recordings, which basically amount to a greatest hits package with Zakk, Trujillo, John Sinclair, and Mike Bordin as the backing band (and a pretty fair job they do, IMO).
