.................need a little help picking out cds for my trip.

 

I have a 20 hour drive there and of course another 20 hour drive coming back.

I have room in my big cd case for roughly 60 cds and I'll stash some cdrs as well.

 

So I'm looking for some opinions and ideas before I start this packing process.

Packing my music for a trip is harder than packing my clothes. :lol:

For starters you need...

Journey - Infinity / Evolution / Departure / Escape / Frontiers

Styx - The Grand Illusion / Pieces Of Eight / Paradise Theatre

 

Followed by some classic 1970`s Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath / Sabotage

 

Add a little Schenker orientated UFO - Phenomenon / Force It / No Heavy Petting

 

Enjoy your trip Wes :bananamac:

You need some shit that will get you there fast....

 

SLAYER

NUCLEAR ASSAULT

TESTAMENT

EXODUS

 

They might also get a speeding ticket. :lol:

 

Seriously though I'll probably pack the last Testament release to play late at night when my wife is asleep. :banger:

Farcry-High Gear

Sister Sin-Switchblade Serenades

Heaven & Hell-The Dio Years, The Devil You Know

 

I'm sure that Farcry and Heaven&Hell will go with me along with the Sab's H&H and I might even throw in that Sister Sin. That's a real good sleazy metal disc IMO and I love Liv's vocals. :headbanger:

I would take:

Vain - No Respect (you really don't have to press the fast forward button once for this one)

Shotgun Messiah - Second Coming (again, not a bad song on the disc...and a little attitude for cruisin')

Skid Row - Slave To The Grind (again solid front to back)

Alias - S/T (a little lighter but good if the wife can't stand the louder stuff)

Whitesnake - Good To Be Bad (only a year old and a good mix of songs)

Babylon A.D. - S/T

Dokken - greatest hits (ya gotta do some rockin' with Dokken)

Giant - Last Of The Runaways or Time To Burn (good cruisin' music)

 

Did you mention where you are heading to? Maybe you didn't want to. Anyway, have fun.

Then you can play some TREAT - DREAMHUNTER and MASQUERADE - S/T when driving through the city.

I could do the Dreamhunter and I think I have the Masquerade somewhere on cdr.

I usually don't go on to many trips without that Vain. :headbanger:

Great choices with the Shotgun Messiah, Skid Row, Babylon AD and 'Snake to.

I'm sure I'll take some Dokken but not sure which one as I've taken the last release 'Lightning Strikes Again' on the last couple of long trips and am kind of bored with the same old greatest hits so might have to go with 'Under Lock and Key' or 'Back for the Attack'.

I have both of those Giant discs but not really feeling them for this trip but they are good.

Along with some of those other suggestions, Id be taking along some:

 

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Jorn Lande

Nocturnal Rites

Deep Purple

Dream Evil

Kansas

Masterplan

Royal Hunt

Scorpions

Tesla

Van Halen

AND some great Instrumental Guitar Rock!! :banger:

 

Some nice choices there and I'm sure I'll take some Skynyrd since my wife loves them.

I'm sure I'll take at least one Jorn related project as well and with most definately take some Tesla and maybe even some Purple(Coverdale years), Scorpions and Van Halen.

Def Leppard is always good traveling music.

 

You can't wrong with Leppard and I usually take that last two disc best of disc but for this trip if I take a disc of theirs it will probably be 'High N Dry' or 'Pyromania'. :headbanger:

Paul Stanley - Live to Win

 

Unfortunately its only just over 30mins long :(

 

Of course you need some Harem Scarem as well (Selt Titled, Mood Swings, Believe, Higher, Human Nature)

 

I like the Paul disc but will probably just take some Kiss instead along with the new Ace Frehley disc. :headbanger:

I like Harem Scarem but would you believe I don't have one of their discs although I have a couple on cdr. :anon:

    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor.
