To honor an artist who got uploaded into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, I decided to talk about The Moody Blues and their 1967 album, Days of Future Passed. Originally planned to be a stage show telling the story of an everyman’s day, it evolved into an album which is a pioneer in the progressive rock genre, the first full length recording to feature rock and roll and an orchestra, as well one of the first concept albums. This album has a lot of firsts and it’s such a delight to hear from beginning to end!

This video is where I like to say thank you and farewell to the artists no longer with us, who we lost in the year 2017.

Although, I couldn’t mention everyone I don’t want to leave them out of my overall message. To those we lost last year, you may be gone but you won’t be forgotten. May you live on in your music and movies and to all of you thank you and farewell.

The Beatles legendary album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has reached a very important anniversary this year in 2017. This album I’m talking about is 50 years old! This album has so much information out there that it took more than one video to talk about. This episode talks about the events leading up to the release of this album, the album cover, and a bit of its legacy over the past 50 years. If you want more Beatles information, check out Sgt. Pepper Part 2, which talks about the music itself.

I’m celebrating a second artist who got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year by honoring Electric Light Orchestra and their 1974 album Eldorado. This album takes you into a dream world, playing out different characters in each song. Such a great album to get immersed in.

Last time, I talked about the artists who got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For this video I picked an album by one of the artists who got inducted this year. I picked Yes and their 1971 album Fragile (or 1972 for the American release). A great album which almost has a concept of 5 of the songs are a solo contribution by each respective member of the group as well as 4 great group songs.

Awesome Albums continues the story of Tommy and the events that happens in life, told in this 1969 Rock Opera by the Who. As the old saying goes, it gets worse before it gets better. Tommy has had a lot of unfortunate events happen in his life but that is about to change!

This video is where I like to say thank you and farewell to the artists no longer with us, who we lost in the year 2016. Unlike last year, there were a few in the entertainment industry I wanted to talk about as well before jumping in to talk about the artists and musicians we lost.

2016, was a rough year when it came to losing people. Naturally it’s impossible to name everybody but at the very least I can highlight the big names and mention those who meant something to me. Although, I couldn’t mention everyone I don’t want to leave them out of my overall message. To those we lost last year, you may be gone but you won’t be forgotten. May you live on in your music and movies and to all of you thank you and farewell.

A Christmas gift to all of you, a video so massive that it had to be split into 2 episodes, The Who’s Rock Opera Tommy. The whole album tells the story about a deaf, dumb, and blind boy and his struggles through life.

A very short video about Atlanta Rhythm Section. It’s not necessarily about the album Champagne Jam itself but an event involving Atlanta Rhythm Section around the same time period in either 1978 or 1979, where they got to play at the White House! Just think about how awesome that would be!

Welcome to another episode of Awesome Albums Extras, where today we come back to Pink Floyd’s legendary album, The Dark Side of the Moon with extra information that had either been completely new information to me since making the original video, something that I felt I needed to clarify a little bit more, or simply didn’t fit in the original video.

Today’s episode of Awesome Albums features Robin Trower’s album Bridge of Sighs, released in 1974. Often considered a white Jimi Hendrix, Trower blends rock and blues flawlessly and is such an underrated and amazing guitar player.

In this episode of Awesome Albums, we take a look at Jefferson Airplane’s second album Surrealistic Pillow, released in 1967. This is one of those albums that really represents the counterculture in the 1960s. Outside of compilation albums, this is the album that has most of their big hits and is a really great album.
