Gramps was an aerobatics instructor at Kelly AFB way, way back in the day. He flew Jennys.
Digging through my measly collection. (thanks Kevin for making me feel so inadequate LOL)
Pulled this one out. Probably haven't played it since 1982 or '83 back when it came out. It's not bad. A Swiss AC/DC clone. The cover looks cool to this day.
This one's going back to the crate after side one finishes.
Killer - Thriller
When I say AC/DC clone, I mean Damn, more AC/DC than AC/DC.
Next in queue : Dream Theater - Train of Thought CD
Next in queue Stevie Nicks -- Bella Donna --
That's how I was reading your post PHO (phonetic spelling of FOH), it was just a mental picture of what was and what could still be today.
I take a mental cruise in my old Challenger every so often. It always involves music. It doesn't bring it back, but it does bring back some good memories.
Ah, Frank, The good old days! Reminds me of my '66 Mustang, all disc brakes, Blue Printed BOSS 302, 411 posi rear, B&M Shifter, 10.5sec q mile. I would burn throught tires once a month. And yes, initially an 8 track, that was then replaced with a cassette.
And that my brother was a cool mental 1/4 mile in your Mustang. Thanks for taking me along for the ride. My head was pinned back so far while you were banging gears that I couldn't tell if it was a fastback, coupe or convertible...?
EDIT: Blitz, my Challenger, about 3 months after I bought because I had spent my last dime to buy it in '81 had a Pioneer Supertuner cassette deck, a Kenwood graphic equalizer under the dash, Audiovox 5 1/4 coaxial's in the kick panels and Jensen 6x9's in the rear side panels. Just could squeeze them in and still have clearance for the window crank. That system crushed.
A Miles Davis session to close out the evening
Hardtop, better rigidity, not that they were ever canyon cars, but I manage anyway, 4 wheel power slides on Decker and Mulholland Canyons. I would scare my friend so bad, he would wear his motorcycle helmet when I took him out racing around. Fun times. I remember burning an entire tank of gas in 2 hours on a Friday night racing around. There was only one guy in town that could beat me in the q mile, my brother with a '68 Mustang 9 sec q mile. That thing was a real rocket ship. Cops would pull either of us over, not to issue a ticket, but to request us to pop the hood so they could look at the V8 goodness. For small blocks, those BOSS 302 's with 10:1 compression ratio and 411 rear posi really were rocket ships. I should really have been dead with the stuff I did.....
I was there!
That was the real deal back then! Wish we had a time machine
On my grave I swear, PHO. Just this morning I pulled that CD off the rack and had totally forgotten that I had it. It's my one Miles Davis piece. Was thinking about shooting a picture of it while playing it but wasn't in the mood for shootin'.
Jury is still out on Magnum, going to need to give it another listen.. Dream Theater is sounding good so far, bit harder driving this one - not as much floaty spacey stuff (I Like) as others of theirs, but still very good. I'm kinda scanning through all 3 new discs to get a taste. Will give them a more serious listen another time. Next up, Riverside
This one is guaranteed to please. Scottish metal from back in the day of the NWOBHM.
Holocaust - Live
I'll see if I can liven up your collection with a rip of Rock Wakeman's Criminal Record. Never done a vinyl rip before so I want to figure it out. I'm back at work now so it might take a couple of days.
Nice oboe concerto, btw. My DG collection has grown substantially but I don't think I have that one.
