I love the harmonica in Rock/Blues-Rock but don't know of that much except the odd track here and there but does anyone know of some great albums that contain a fair bit of Harmonica ?????? :drink:

Check out Bruce Springsteen. Darkness On The Edge Of Town and especially The River is a great example!

Off the top of my head I am drawing a blank for specific tracks but I know there are a few Kix songs that have a good dose of harmonica.

I'm sorry Dave, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Seriously. I just couldn't resist. If I DO think of some other bands with bitchin' harmonica (besides the aforementioned Kix), I will definitely mention them next time... just too damned tired to think right now :)

Plenty of harmonica on a plethora (what a great word!) of Aerosmith tracks. Big 10" Record is one of my faves featuring said instrument.

PIG IRON - THE LAW AND THE ROAD ARE ONE is a must for anyone who likes a bit of harmonica blended in with hard rock :bananamac:

Always loved the harmonica in Black Sabbath's " The Wizard."

 

Classic, love this one :tumbsup:

What about everyone's favourite band, Poison?? Bret Michaels was a demon on the harmonica. Hard to think of the songs off the top of my head, but I know 'Good love' was definitely one. I know he rips out the harmonica on the '7 Days Live' video and goes for it. Pretty sure there's at least one track with harmonica on it on all Poison discs aside from the debut. I think...

 

They your favourite band now, Dave?

Extreme's Little Girls off their debut was a killer, and there may be more on that album. I can't recall.

Correct you are Geoff.... I love it when Bret plays the harmonica. That means he isn't singing.

 

I mean... Bret plays circles around Steve Whiteman... :whistle:

Bret Michaels snoring is a better singing voice than Steve Whiteman. Again, as much as I love Kix, he's one of the weaker vocalists I've heard. ;)

Coming from you... I'm sure Steve would take that as a compliment. :tumbsup:

What a funny ol' world. I actually typed a response completely separate to this - about 'House of pain', only to look back over the thread to see Jim's already mentioned it.

 

I didn't reply to this because probably the most infuriating "discussion" I've ever had on this board was (no, amazingly so, is was not with Jez!!!) that one with Mark (amazingly so, it was not a religious discussion!!) about the Miss Crazy vocalist.

 

I'm not going to waste more time with jokers who can't admit when something they listen to may not be perfect. ;) Mate, you love Steve Whiteman, I like him and Kix a lot... but he is a shit vocalist. Yes, we can all still like him, we can all still like his voice - it doesn't change that... but he has a bad voice. :D

You should track down a cd that ive submitted a few times to HH, but it never seems to get taken seriously, its a Bryan Portera group,(SingSing, London Drive) it's called Motherlode - Fingerpaint, it was released in 96, and features some awesome Harmonica riffs, they fit in perfectly to the heavy style of the band that went on to become Load, Point, Pull! if any of you are familiar with them. should check it out.

    • Massachusetts health officials on Tuesday reported more than 6,500 new breakthrough cases over the past week, and 34 more deaths. In the last week, 6,610 new breakthrough cases -- infections in people who have been vaccinated -- were reported, with 158 more vaccinated people hospitalized, Massachusetts Department of Public Health officials said Tuesday. It's a 9% increase in the rate of new breakthrough cases in Massachusetts -- last week saw 6,917 new COVID infections in vaccinated people. The new report brings the total number of breakthrough cases to 77,647, and the death toll among people with breakthrough infections to 586.
    • 'Final Advent' out April 2nd. Tracklisting: 1. Power Of Will 2. Advent 3. Natural Born Killer 4. Yours 5. All The Devils Are Here 6. The White 7. Instinct 8. Heart Of Darkness 9. Achilles Heel 10. Power Of Now
    • Me  I love his voice but the projects don't always interest me...the three you have mentioned that we both purchased all did hold an interest for me...and they are all quite good if im honest (although I already had Badd Boyz from the original cd release)
    • Was released on 12th November...I preordered from the band and haven't received mine yet,although they have said that all orders are running about 10-14 days behind for some reason or another...but mine hasn't even been dispatched as best I know(3 weeks later   ) tad disappointing but it'll be here hopefully soon.
    • Vol. 4 - Black Sabbath
    • The actual act notwithstanding, I posted the clip to show where all this Corona shit has led us. Instituting new Govern"mental" powers. I think that's ultimately what the Worldwide end game is.
    • Baby I'll Be Gone - Thunder
    • If somebody told me at the beginning of the year that I'd buy 3 releases (or re-releases) that featured Paul Shortino I'd say that they were crazy. Did anyone buy Rough Cutt III, Blue Dahlia  and Badd Boyz like I did ?
