Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy [SD 19130]. This is Led Zeppelin’s fifth studio album, and it’s my absolute favorite. I only got into Zeppelin recently, and that was only because I got nearly their entire discography on vinyl thanks to slightapplauseforthescramblesuit, who’s record collection I am curating, I suppose. So the first time I actually got to really listen to Led Zeppelin (not on the radio) was on vinyl, which I think is the proper medium to experience music for the first time. Same story with Pink Floyd too, which I’m very grateful for.
Anyway, this is the 3rd original pressing of this album pressed in 1977, so it was sometime after the album was actually released. Regardless of it’s age, it plays remarkably well and there is no other way I would have rather first experienced this album. When I actually buy this album for myself, it’ll probably be one of the Japanese presses.
The Doors “Strange Days” LP. A lot of people I grew up with/old drinking buddies would hate on The Doors. Personally, I think they were one of the more original and unique LA psych/acid groups… and I like Jim’s many voices. Point is, is that I think they are a terribly listenable band. I always enjoy any album of their’s that I put on, as infrequently as that is any more. I was pleasantly surprised to find this was an original press in near mint condition. I really appreciate that my dad took good care of his records as the majority of my classic rock comes from his beautiful collection. #LP #Vinyl #Records #TheDoors #StrangeDays #JimMorrison #AcidRock #Psych
