The claim to fame for America's 1982 album, View From the Ground, is that it yielded the soft rock duo's last Top Ten hit, "You Can Do Magic." Vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Gerry Beckley and vocalist/guitarist Dewey Bunnell scored big with this infectious, hook-riddled single. It was written and produced by Argent guitarist and solo artist Russ Ballard, who is most famous for penning songs that others have hit with.

This is classic material. 4 CD's loaded with one song after another of magic guitar playing. The sound is terrific and Mary Ford adds great vocals to many of the cuts although there are also many instrumentals. The years covered here are from 1948 - 1957 and includes some portions of the Les Paul Radio Show with songs and dialogue between Les and Mary. In addition to being a guitar genius, Les Paul was also an inventor who developed a variety of techniques still used today (such as multi-tracking) and they are on display in this set of music. Wonderful music, great sound, terrific vocals. This is music made in a different era before rock took over the airwaves. There is nothing in your face about it and there is a 40's feel to the pop tunes but great music stands the test of time and this certainly qualifies. Highly recommended.
Grand Funk - Shinin' On (1974) Capitol Records/SWAE-11278 - Original US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz

Grand Funk - Shinin' On
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Mastered At Sterling Sound By Lee Hulko
Label: Capitol Records/SWAE-11278 | Release: 1974 | Genre: Classic-Rock

After racking up their biggest success to date with We're an American Band, Grand Funk Railroad decided to keep a good thing going by retaining Todd Rundgren as their producer and continuing to push their sound in a pop/rock direction. The end result has its moments but is not as strong as We're an American Band.

After recently becoming a fan of The Band, I found this album and decided to give it a listen. I had no idea what Watkins Glen was, and i hadn't heard many of the songs that were on this album. After taking the album home I read the cd booklet and found that Watkins Glen was a concert organized by Bill Graham which included The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, and the Grateful Dead.
Gandalf - Gandalf (1969) Capitol Records/ST 121 - US Deluxe 180g Pressing - LP/FLAC - ONLY RE-POST In 24bit/96kHz

Gandalf - Gandalf
Label: Capitol Records/ST 121 | Release: 1969/2012 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Essential: A masterpiece of psychedelic rock music.
GANDALF is possibly the rarest album on the Capitol label and sought after in any condition by record collectors. Originally released in 1969, reissued by Capitol on vinyl in the 90's, but they never issued it on CD (why not?). The British See For Miles label reissued it first on CD and now this Sundazed release. As with all Sundazed reissues the sound quality is excellent (considering source tapes), remastered by master reissue guru/producer Bob Irwin. This is a wonderful album, not overproduced, but with a dreamy, laid back vibe and a velvet landscape with a feminine essence that's hard to describe.

Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Are we going to a symphonic-rock gem? and to this day I move to Germany with the legendary "Triumvirat".

Triumvirat ‎- Old Loves Die Hard (1976) Capitol Records/ST-11551 - Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Triumvirat ‎- Old Loves Die Hard
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Label: Capitol Records/ST-11551 | Release: 1976 | Genre: Symphonic Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
WOW! This record is just a bit less good than Spartacus: mostly, it sounds very similar to Spartacus. The weak point on this album is Barry Palmer's lead vocals, although bearable. "I believe", sounding a bit pop, has good rhythmic piano, Fender Rodes, choir parts and some floating keyboards. The first part of the marvelous "Day in a life" has Fender Rhodes and background floating keyboards sounding like the Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver" track; the second part has a very progressive & melodic piano a la Rick Wakeman: absolutely GRAND; finally, the third part sounds like on the Spartacus album: rhythmic piano, VERY spacy moog, fast drums and bass. The epic "History of mystery part 1" starts with another excellent piano part, followed by heroic & catchy keyboards like on the Spartacus album: Hammond organ and moog; so, this tracks sounds like the best ELP of the early 70's!
Lennon-Plastic Ono Band ‎- Shaved Fish (1975) Capitol Records/SW-3421 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC  In 24bit/96kHz

Lennon-Plastic Ono Band ‎- Shaved Fish
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Mastered At Master Cutting Room
Label: Capitol Records/SW-3421 | Release: 1975 | This Issue: 1978 | Genre: Pop-Rock

At the time of its release, Shaved Fish didn't attract as much attention as any compilation of John Lennon's work would have either a few years before or a few years after. Lennon had just issued the somewhat disappointing genre album, Rock 'n' Roll, and was only a year from Walls and Bridges, not one of his strongest albums, and had also grown somewhat stale as a public figure.
Wings - Wings Greatest (1978) Capitol Records/SOO-11905 - Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Wings - Wings Greatest
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Mastered By Ken Perry At Capitol Mastering
Label: Capitol Records/SOO-11905 | Release: 1978 | Genre: Pop-Rock

Released in 1978 after London Town gave McCartney another huge hit, Wings Greatest rounds up McCartney's greatest hits from 1971 to 1978 – which means it skips "Maybe I'm Amazed" but touches on Ram.
