Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy (2005)

Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy is the eleventh studio album by German power metal band Helloween, released in 2005.[2] It is the first album with new and current drummer Dani Löble and a continuation to their 1987 and 1988 albums Keeper of the Seven Keys, Parts I and II. The album is a double CD with nearly 80 minutes playing time and comes in a digipack with 6 flaps. It was produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, Halford, Rage) and features Blackmore's Night singer Candice Night on the track "Light The Universe".

When asked about what inspired them to make a third Keeper album, bassist Markus Grosskopf said:[3]
“ Actually there was somebody from the Japanese record company who told Weiki [Michael Weikath, guitarist] how happy he is with the new line up. He said something like 'That line up is really strong, with that line up you can make A KEEPER album' just to say how strong that line up is, that's the explanation. And the record company started thinking 'Why don't you do so?'. [...] then we thought 'Well, why don't we try it with that line up?' But then we decided to do it very different and not to copy, the actual thing was not to copy that old stuff, the good old stuff, but doing something new. [...] And it deserves the name, even if some people think it doesn't. ”

The intro of the song "Occasion Avenue" uses samples from "Halloween", "Eagle Fly Free" and "Keeper of the Seven Keys" with Michael Kiske on vocals. One of the samples is a clip from a previously unreleased live version of "Keys" with Kiske singing the first part of the chorus and the crowd joining in.

The Cramps - Psychedelic Jungle Gravest hits (1989)

The Cramps were an American punk rock band formed in 1976 and active until 2009. The band split after the death of lead singer Lux Interior.[1] Their line-up rotated much over their existence, with the husband-and-wife duo of Interior and lead guitarist and occasional bass guitarist Poison Ivy comprising the only permanent members. The addition of guitarist Bryan Gregory and drummer Pam Balam resulted in the first complete lineup in April 1976.

They were part of the early CBGB punk rock movement that had emerged in New York. The Cramps were one of the first punk bands, and also widely recognized as one of the prime innovators of psychobilly.

The Ross the Boss - New Metal Leader (2008)

New Metal Leader is the debut album recorded by guitarist Ross "the Boss" Friedman and his German band under the moniker, "The Ross the Boss Band". It was released on August 12, 2008 on Candlelight records in the US and A.F.M. Records in Europe.

While the band is called, Ross the Boss", "It is a real band with each member having his share of the whole" When asked about the meaning of the title "new Metal Leader", Friedman said, "There are several reasons why I chose the title. People do consider me a leader in metal. It is a metal record. And I may not be new, but my band certainly is. The last thing I did [in the same musical vein as "New Metal Leader) was (Manowar album) Kings of Metal. The title of this new record had to be in the same realm; it had to have the same sick sense of humor

Writing On The Wall - The Power Of The Picts (U.k. 1969)

An Edinburgh band, who were originally known as The Jury. They moved down to London, changed their name to Writing On The Wall and were a popular attraction at London's Middle Earth Club. Their album didn't capture them at their best. The sound was flat and it was poorly produced. Bogeyman catches the ear. With its maze of interlocking riffs and driving rhythm it was the natural choice for the Middle Earth sampler Earthed. Child On A Crossing was not included on the album but was added as an additional track when the album was reissued in Germany on Repertoire in 1992. Two of the better tracks on the album were Aries and Hill Of Dreams, but also of note was the 'B' side to the single Lucifer Corpus, which had an excellent guitar solo and real menace.

Willy Finlayson left in 1969 being replaced by Robert Smith, who'd been in The Embers and Three's A Crowd. Soon after Smith and Patterson left but the band soldiered on until late 1973, releasing one further 45 for Pye.

Both sides of the Middle Earth 45 can also be heard on Filling The Gap (4-LP) and Visions Of The Past, Vol. 2 (LP & CD). Buffalo has resurfaced on Rubble, Vol. 10 - Professor Jordan's Magic Sound Show (LP) and Filling The Gap. It sounds pretty good to these ears. The band also signed to Tetragammaton in the US and they put out a live album, Live At Middle Earth, which is apparently better and much different to the UK release. It's also hopelessly rare. Wooden O recorded a version of Aries (Middle Earth MDE 201) 1969. Finally a version of The Small Faces Sha La La La Lee recorded at a John Peel session has resurfaced on Mynd The Gap (LP), and Ladybird can be found on Progressive Music (LP).

Patterson left the band to join Beggar's Opera, but sadly died in the early nineties. Robert Smith joined Blue. Certainly Writing On The Wall were the best progressive rock outfit to come out of Edinburgh.

Of their retrospective albums, Cracks In The Illusion Of Life contains both sides of a 1967 45, Words And Music / Peter Gunn, issued originally as The Jury. Also featured are two promising pop-psych tracks from 1968; Felicity Jane and Flight Of The Mind plus the more mainstream Katie's Been Gone. From 1972 there's the keyboard-orientated Fishers Of Men, but sadly most of side two is taken up with rather unimaginative hard-edged rock. Of this both sides of their 1973 45 for Pye, Man Of Renown, are the pick of the bunch.

TREVOR - Wolf -1981

Wolf is the third studio album by musician Trevor Rabin, released in 1981 through Chrysalis Records.

Trevor Charles Rabin (/ˈreɪbɪn/, born 13 January 1954) is a South African American musician, singer-songwriter, producer, and film composer. Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Rabin was born into a family of musicians. After taking up the piano and guitar, Rabin became a session musician with a variety of artists prior to forming the rock band Rabbitt who enjoyed considerable success in South Africa. In 1978, Rabin moved to London to further his career, working as a solo artist and a producer for various artists including Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

From 1983 to 1995, Rabin was the guitarist in the rock band Yes after he and members of a band he co-formed, Cinema, became the band's new line-up. He played on their albums 90125 (1983), Big Generator (1987), Union (1991), and Talk (1994). Developed mostly from demos by Rabin, 90125 remains the band's biggest selling album, helped by its lead single "Owner of a Lonely Heart" which topped Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks charts.

In 1995, Rabin left to become a film composer and has since scored over 40 feature films, most notably his frequent collaborations with producer Jerry Bruckheimer,[1] and won numerous awards including 11 BMI Awards. He continues to release albums, the most recent of which is Jacaranda (2012). In 2016, Rabin took a break from film scoring to co-form Yes Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman and returned to live performance. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Yes in April 2017.

Ten Years After - 1972 - Rock & Roll Music To The World

Rock & Roll Music to the World είναι ο τίτλος του έβδομου στούντιο άλμπουμ του αγγλικού ροκ συγκροτήματος Ten Years After, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε σε μορφή δίσκου βινυλίου τον Οκτώβριο του 1972 μέσω της δισκογραφικής εταιρείας "Chrysalis" στην Ευρώπη και της "Columbia" στην Αμερική.
Το άλμπουμ γνώρισε μέτρια εμπορική επιτυχία σε σχέση με τους προκατόχους του, ανεβαίνοντας στο Top-20 στη Νορβηγία και τον Καναδά και το Top-30 στην πατρίδα του συγκροτήματος και την Γερμανία. Παρ' όλα αυτά, σημείωσε τις χαμηλότερες πωλήσεις για τους Ten Years After από το "Stonedhenge" του 1969.
