Top-priorities!

After last week's mindblowin' release we have some more top-priorities thrown at ya!

LIVE - THROWING COPPER
When Live's Throwing Copper was released in 1994, it lingered in the bottom of the album charts for a few months before the alternative music lovers finally caught on. And then they played a massive game of catch-up: Throwing Copper yielded worldwide radio hits like "I Alone", "All Over You" and "Selling The Drama" which eventually partially defined the sound of the nineties.

OPETH - DAMNATION
On Damnation, Opeth abandoned the concept of short musical interludes separating the band's explosions of black metal fury and progressive rock. We dare the listener to find one distorted power guitar chord, a pounding bass drum or growled vocal on this album. The album is filled with mellow melancholy, reflective and alluringly mournful tracks. After the first release, Opeth fans needed time for this novelty to sink in but when it did it became a new successful chapter to the band's repertoire.

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE - VOLUNTEERS
The Jefferson Airplane's sixth album Volunteers was released in 1969, a mere two year since their monumental psychedelic hippie rock album Surrealistic Pillow [MOVLP034]. A politically charged album, Volunteers mainly dealt with the injustice of the Vietnam war. Musical collaborators include Stephen Stills and David Crosby. Volunteers is a crucial Jefferson record that ranks among the top albums of this seminal San Francisco psychedelic rock group.

THE BYRDS - DR. BYRDS & MR. HYDE
After the departure of three band members that played on Sweetheart Of The Rodeo [MOVLP064], Roger McGuinn had to assemble a new line-up for The Byrds. Especially their new guitarist Clarence White really shines on Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde (1969) and would continue to do so in subsequent Byrds albums. Being the first album with the new line-up, Dr. Byrds & Mr. Hyde is a worthy addition to the Music On Vinyl catalogue of Byrds titles!

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN - SOUL TO SOUL
On Soul To Soul (1985), Stevie included two new band members on keyboard. The band know their way around a number of cover versions of songs penned by Hank Ballard, Doyle Bramhall and Willie Dixon, bringing a variety of influences into SRV's brand of modern blues. His own compositions such as "Say What", "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love" and "Life Without You" reveal an artist that is ever passionate in delivering real blues.

RORY GALLAGHER - AGAINST THE GRAIN
Released in 1975, Against The Grain is an adrenaline filled Blues Rock record, totally Rory Gallagher worthy. High octane stompers like "Souped Up Ford" and the Sam & Dave cover "I Take What I Want" take turns with slidier tracks like Leadbelly's "Out On The Western Plain", "Lost At Sea" and "All Around Man". This record is the ultimate melting pot of Delta Blues, Country and Blues Rock, with an unmistakable Gallagher brand.

RORY GALLAGHER - CALLING CARD
One year after releasing Against The Grain, Gallagher hit back with Calling Card, a balanced record with his quality brand of driving Blues Rock, mixed with some Folk and Country influences. Produced by Deep Purple's Roger Glover, Calling Card showcases a very strong and diverse set of songs which wound up to become concert staples for Gallagher. Incendiary riffs, groovy organ hooks and intense vocals make Calling Card one of Gallagher's best efforts.

RORY GALLAGHER - PHOTO FINISH
This rock-solid album from 1978 proves that Gallagher's still on the case as he has been doing the decade before. Stripping down to just three musicians, Photo Finish is in-your-face and full of well distributed energy and focus. Highlights include groover "The Mississippi Sheiks", hard rocker "Early Warning" and "Cruise On Out", a high octane stomper that gets even the most unwilling listener barefootin'.

RORY GALLAGHER - TOP PRIORITY
On Top Priority, Gallagher gives priority to harder edged songs that he's famous for delivering in bundles and of great quality. Again backed by just a drummer and bassist, the songs on Top Priority are incredibly energetic, turning down the tempo just a couple of times on "Key Chain" and "Bad Penny". The other songs on Top Priority are driving burners, having the Irishman sliding up and down the frets with great vigour and conviction.

RORY GALLAGHER - JINX
Jinx (1982) finds Rory Gallagher as energetic and raw as ever, churning out Blues Rockers like "Big Guns" and "Bourbon" alongside whiskey soaked groovers like "Double Vision" and "Jinxed". One cover adorns the album: Louisiana Red's "Ride On Red, Ride On", a fast paced Blues burner that showcases a Rory Gallagher that's on fire. A worthy addition to the extensive Rory Gallagher catalog of Music On Vinyl!
