Mixtapes


Recommended Posts

  • My Little Pony

I thought it might be fun to share your mixtapes with one another. Be it a general collection of melodic hard rock tracks, or a sampling of songs that pertain to a specific mood/atmosphere/concept. I can't be the only one here that obsesses over the sequence of the tracks on every disc I burn.

 

We used to have an old work truck with an MP3 player in it, so I'd throw a bunch of albums on a disc and then throw said disc in the truck. I named those discs "Truck Mix #1-25." That truck died and the one we use now doesn't have an MP3 player, so I've taken the opportunity to select each track individually. It's been a while since I've made proper mixtapes. This new series is aptly called "Truck Revival."

 

On the first disc, I simply took a bunch of my dad's favourite tracks:

Truck Revival No. 1:

Steve Lukather - Stab in the Back

Avantasia - The Scarecrow

Terry Brock - Broken

Scorpions - Lorelei

Tesla - Shine Away

Slamer - Audio Illusion

Dream Theater - The Best of Times

Shinedown - What a Shame

Rob Rock - Move On

Treat - Skies of Mongolia

Danger Danger - Never Give Up

The Poodles - Give Me a Sign

Steelheart - G2BA...

Yeah, I was far too lazy to search that far back. Alright, then, I will migrate my future posts there.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
