Free was a one of the British bands that pioneered Hard Rock, in no small part thanks to one of our favourite vocalists - Paul Rogers. With their third album featuring the timeless rock anthem All Right Now the band cemented their position as Rock royalty!
This may be one of the greatest blues albums we've heard in a long time! What the cover doesn't tell you is that the great Chicago Blues pianist Otis Spann is backed by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, who were touring the US at the time! Whilst Spann is simply sensational, it is often claimed that Peter Green produced some of his best playing on this album.
Following the success of their Jailbreak album, Thin Lizzy wasted no time in recording their awesome follow-up. The album is incredibly diverse - featuring heavy Lizzy guitar riffs we love, an incredibly funky title track and beautiful ballads! Written and recorded while bassist/vocalist Phil Lynott was recovering from hepatitis, it is also the last studio album to feature Brian Robertson as a full member of the band.
Recorded just 3 weeks following a one-year long incarceration in Italy, and backed by an incredible group of up-and-coming European stars, Chet may never have sounded better! Featuring energetic compositions by Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins as well as gorgeous ballads, the album is a must-have for all Baker fans!
There is nothing more contagious and uplifting than the funky energy of playing an EWF album! Released 45 years ago, Spirit is the band's seventh studio album and features the funk classic Getaway as well as the poetic ballad Imagination.
Dedicated to his father who was a sleeping-car attendant on the Canadian Pacific Railways, Night Train is Oscar Peterson's most famous record bringing us the kind of masterful and tight playing for which we love him! The album is simply effortless cool which will capture you from the moment it starts!
To us, there is no voice that defined 70s rock as much John Fogerty's did. The band's fifth studio album, and in just two years, cemented their commercial success as well as a place in rock and roll history!
The brainchild of Al Kooper, this one of a kind blues collaboration featured the incredible Stephen Stills and Mike Bloomfield. The success of this record opened the door for the "supergroup" concept of the late 1960s and 1970s for the likes of Blind Faith, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and others.
This is the Allman Brothers Band's comeback album, and their best blues-based outing since Idlewild South that restored a lot of their reputation.
Freddie Hubbard alone is a delight to listen to, but on his debut album he was joined by the incomparable McCoy Tyner, Tina Brooks and Sam Jones, making this an absolute must-have for any jazz collection!
Wilson Pickett has to feature in every true soul lover's collection! With his 4th studio album he brought his heavy, in-your-face Memphis style to a number of incredible covers, most notably to his version of the timeless classic Mustang Sally.
There's very few bassist who could channel energy into their instrument the way that Jaco could! His debut solo album featured the elite of the jazz world including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and David Sanborn. The record was recorded just a few months ahead of Black Market - Jaco's first album with Weather Report.
