Old’n’Tasty Records @ RockmusicRaider – Vol. II

RockmusicRaider - Old'n'Tasty RecordsYou need to give it to them old folks. The ’70’s and ’80s were very productive as far as music is concerned. Barely emerged from early-age rock’n’roll, blues and – not to forget – jazz, rock and later metal were on their quest to claim their place in the musical landscape. This was a time of experimentation, constructing tunes for the future. Not making music for the masses, through old designs like so much patchwork. Which is – come to think of it – what we see a lot of today.

Indeed, older records are – still today – all the rage with many a fan. And – surprisingly – with younger folks, too. I have seen university students debate UFO records for instance – Obsession to be precise – in forum threads. I kid you not, ’tis no alternate fact. It is thus no surprise that some of these albums made it onto the RockmusicRaider most popular records list. And some of them continue to perform well to this day. 

The first installment of the Old’n’Tasty Records already contained a juicy collection of classics. But there is more, much more on the blog and in the music collections of the RockmusicRaider crew. So, let’s delve into this new selection from this treasure trove of ultimate findings.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

Dio – Dream Evil (1987) – Review


Heavy Metal is one of my favorite styles and passions in music. And one band having had a hand in shaping this passion is 'Dio' with the superb 1987 record 'Dream Evil'. This album played when the world still seemed in order, not torn asunder by some assholes trying to rearrange our lives - or perhaps they did already, only we did not realize it; there was no internet and no cell phones to speak of back then.
