Big Pink," West Saugerties, New York. Revered for decades as the "holy grail" for music collectors and Dylan fans, the recordings have been notoriously bootlegged by collectors in various forms throughout the years, the first being arguably the first rock bootleg album, the Great White Wonder, released in July 1969. The Basement Tapes Complete is the first time the complete sessions, containing 138 tracks. of which 117 were not previously issued, have been officially released. Of these tracks 23 are alternate takes, making 115 distinct songs in the set of which some heard in two or three different takes . In July 1969, the first rock bootleg appeared in California, entitled Great White Wonder. The double album consisted of seven songs from the Woodstock basement sessions, plus some early recordings Dylan had made in Minneapolis in December 1961 and one track recorded from The Johnny Cash Show. One of those responsible for the bootleg, identified only as Patrick, talked to Rolling Stone: "Dylan is a heavy talent and he's got all those songs nobody's ever heard. That's at best half true. The performances weren't approached with any kind of gravity, and are best listened to with no reverence at all. For every moment of revelation and synthesis, there are five throwaways.
The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. fm, compilation album tracks appear under the name of Various Artists erroneously because the individual artist is not listed in the album's ID3 information.
Put simply, Powerage is arguably the best rock album of the 70s. But, sandwiched between two of the band’s other peaks, Let There Be Rock and Highway To Hell, AC/DC’s fourth international release, it didn’t immediately stake a claim as their best album. That Powerage is the only AC/DC album title not to feature in a chorus of one of their songs speaks about one of the record’s key virtues: subtlety. Structurally, Master Of Puppets aped the format of its predecessor, Ride The Lightning, but here Metallica’s ideas were more developed, their confidence in their own abilities more pronounced. Master Of Puppets is both uncompromising and uncompromised throughout, the work of men now utterly convinced of their own destiny. 3. AC/DC: Back In Black. There was a powerful significance in that title, and that none-more-black cover. On February 19, 1980, AC/DC’s singer Bon Scott was found dead in a parked car in East Dulwich, south London. The night before, he’d been out in London’s Camden, watching. It’s the newest album album in the top 10 and understandably so – has anybody has made a better rock’n’roll record since its release? 1. Pink Floyd: Dark Side Of The Moon. It’s difficult to overstate the influence of Pink Floyd as a defining force in rock culture.
With Graduation, Kanye West pushed hip-hop to its limits, ushering in an eclectic era that would embrace everything from rock to Chicago house. Gone were the soul samples and grand orchestration that had dominated his first two albums. Lead single ‘Stronger’ hinted at what would follow, its revolutionary hip-hop template combining a sample of Daft. Released on 11 September 2007, Graduation proved to be one of the year’s most memorable albums. Its release coincided with 50 Cent’s third album, Curtis; steeped in the traditions of gangsta rap, the latter stood in stark contrast to Kanye’s futuristic hybrid. A competition between the pair ensued, spurred on by 50 Cent’s assertion that he would easily outsell his rival. In the end, Kanye won by a landslide as Graduation sold nearly one million albums to Curtis’ 691,000
The album ingeniously integrates classic pop-rock beats with trap rhythms that surround Del Rey’s vocals with melodic sensuality. More than a nostalgic play, Lust for Life is a journal of explorations about love and life, a narrative of realism where hope peeps through the curtains of overwhelming lyrical emotion. Near to the Wild Heart of Life captures Japandroids upon the realization that their travels North East South West don't mean much if they don't have a home to come back to, and the set bleeds gratitude at the realization that they, in fact, do. When you have true love and a free life of free will, the road goes on forever anyway. Hip-hop outsider and Odd Future co-founder Tyler, the Creator has spent four albums expressing himself through the guise of various overblown personas, but on his fifth album Flower Boy, it appears that the real deal has finally arrived. With wide-ranging production work that sounds like the culmination of Tyler’s past forays into jazz, funk, and grunge, Flower Boy proves his abilities have officially caught up to his vision.
This time, we sort through the best and worst of Yeezy country. I Am a God, he announced on 2013’s Yeezus, and that record’s complete lack of irony makes it clear that he actually believes it. Elsewhere in his discography, West describes himself as a Monster, a Champion, and the Illest Motherfucker Alive, but his preoccupation with religious divinity is the key to his self-image . Almost none have fought it back so successfully. Whether his target is SNL or the writers of South Park, West always finds a way to come out looking like the winner.

When rock and roll was young and its outlaw image still an ening prospect, its songs evoked the same sense of freedom and devil-may-care risk-taking afforded by a motorcycle. Maybe that’s why so much of what still defines biker aesthetics come inextricably connected to the roaring sounds of classic rock. What better way to start a list of Top 10 Biker Songs than with a racing chopper’s engine roars, fast approaching and then flying past, on ‘Wheels of Steel’? That’s the way ‘Motorcycle Man’ welcomed listeners to New Wave of British Heavy Metal legends Saxon’s definitive album, and it never fails to send an adrenalin rush. 9. 'Live to Ride, Ride to Live'.
