The Hard Rock Collection is a 2CD compilation of hard rock and heavy metal music. No label listed and I do not believe it is actually affiliated with the Hard Rock Cafe, despite the logo on the front and some of the artists chosen for this. This was originally released with a completely different cover by the Pulse label in the UK and possibly due to how cheesy the cover was, they decided to do a second cover with a slight mock up of the Hard Rock Cafe logo. Nonetheless, original songs by the original artists.

Ireland's Mama's Boys were a band of brothers – literally, the three McManus boys, John, Pat, and Tommy – and in 1986 they were dealt a cruel hand by fate midway through a European tour, when Tommy suffered a relapse of leukemia, which he had been treated for successfully as a child. Luckily, the drummer recovered in due time, but then it was brother John's turn to experience health issues with his vocal chords, forcing the hire of singer Keith Murrell before Mama's Boys could start working on their next album.

Hard Stuff was an English hard rock group. Often regarded as one of Deep Purple's proteges, this heavy, but melodic early 70s power trio had a credible reputation of a hard-nosed, no-compromise, heavy-rocking act in the Purple vein, throughout their short-lived career. Paul Hammond had previously played with Atomic Rooster, as did John Du Cann; John Gustafson came from Quatermass. Their both full-length albums were initially released on Purple Records, the Deep Purple-related record label.

The second album from Gotthard is titled "Dial Hard" and the band continue in the same direction as the first album but this time it's a bit more polished - still heavy metal though! While Gotthard did a cover of "Hush" the last time, they have now chosen Beatles' "Come together" and they managed to do a great version.

AvaxHome Tribute to MOTÖRHEAD

I got rock 'n' roll, to save me from the gold
And if that's all there is, it ain't so bad

Motörhead, is a long-lived and iconic British heavy metal band formed in 1975 by former roadie for Jimi Hendrix, bassist, singer and songwriter Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister. They are widely recognized as progenitors of thrash & speed metal, a fusion of heavy metal and what was soon to become hardcore punk. Consequently they influenced countless rock, punk rock, and heavy metal bands that followed. Usually a power trio, Motörhead had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40 chart. The albums Overkill, its follow on, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and particularly No Sleep ‘til Hammersmith, cemented Motörhead’s reputation as one of Britain’s foremost heavy metal groups. While Motörhead are typically classified as heavy metal, speed metal or thrash metal (and often regarded as a foundational influence on the latter two styles); Lemmy dislikes such labels, preferring to describe the band’s music simply as “Rock and Roll”…

Forgotten, obscure, but most amazing and unusual act from the 70s - the band was formed in 1970 in Lansing, Michigan, by former gospel tenor Leon Morton and his gospel-mate Walter Ballard. Within it's short (18 months or so) career the band successfully tried to become the loudest and the hardest acid rock band - but without acid. Today they would've been called Christian rock. Back then, it was an act of short-lived Jesus Rock Movement - the musicians tried to preach ("Let Jesus bring you back", "Life everlasting"…) through acid-rock sound. Even the name of the band had Biblical reference. However, fronted by vocalists Sharon Keel and Ken Fitch, and supported by drummer Eddie Johnson (with Juliard background) the group achieved impressive results. In 1971 Monument Studios in Nashville (not the best place to play acid-rock) recorder this classic album.

Although vintage British psychedelia is viewed by many these days as an Alice In Wonderland-style enchanted garden full of beatific flower children innocently gathering flowers or chasing butterflies, there was always a more visceral element to the scene. Pointedly free of such fripperies as scarlet tunic-wearing gnomes, phenomenal cats and talismanic bicycles, the power trio format that was popularised by the likes of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience spawned a host of imitators. As the Sixties drew to a close and pop evolved slowly but inexorably into rock, psychedelia gave way to a sound that was harder, leaner, heavier, louder.
