Our Review

Released in the U.K. in 1977, the Clash’s debut wa
s a 14-song knockout — the most impassioned, sophisticated LP of punk’s first wave. However when the album was finally released in the U.S. two years later in 1979, it was given a makeover. Epic Records excised the British release’s four weakest cuts (“Deny,” “Protex Blue,” “Cheat,” “48 Hours”) and replaced them with five non-album singles and b-sides, drawn mostly from 1978 and 1979. The reconfigured U.S. version emphasized songwriting chops over the pure insurgent anger of the original LP. Still, the inclusion of masterworks like “(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais” and “Complete Control” gives the re-release a depth that wasn’t fully apparent on the original, while songs like “I Fought the Law” and “Jail Guitar Doors” pointed toward the heroics of London Calling. Strictly speaking, the U.S. version of The Clash is a compilation, not a debut album. But while the U.K. release concisely captures a moment in time for the brilliant young lads from London, the U.S. version offers a richer picture of an ascending band’s talents.

Customer Reviews

The Clash (5 stars)
I was so happy when my dad introduced me to this band. They have the loud angry voice of punk's prime, and there songs still can be related to today (ex. "Hate and War/the only thing we are today…). Frankly, to find this kind of music, the only place you can find it is in the past. Just think, we basically only have PopPunk bands sounding anything remotly like this. I just hope that this type off music will one day rise from the dead,

What??? (5 stars)
First of all this album is not pop! This album is Punk and Punk alone. The Clash are the greatest band that ever existed and iTunes stupidly classifies the as pop. Listen to the album and you'll agree with me totally! The clash were a part of the punk rock revolution in the 70s and iTunes can't even show any respect. JEEZ!

Great Album, Buy It Off Amazon (5 stars)
Classic Punk album, but not the Clash's best. Off Amazon.com it's like 8 bucks so get the hard copy. Even with shipping it will be cheaper.

Biography

Formed: 1976 in London, England
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '70s, '80s

The Sex Pistols may have been the first British punk rock band, but the Clash were the definitive British punk rockers. Where the Pistols were nihilistic, the Clash were fiery and idealistic, charged with righteousness and a leftist political ideology. From the outset, the band was more musically adventurous, expanding its hard rock & roll with reggae, dub, and rockabilly among other roots musics. Furthermore, they were blessed with two exceptional songwriters in Joe Strummer and Mick Jones,…

Biography

Formed: August, 1974 in New York, NY
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Blondie was the most commercially successful band to emerge from the much-vaunted punk/new wave movement of the late '70s. The group was formed in New York City in August 1974 by singer Deborah Harry (b. July 1, 1945, Miami, Florida), formerly of Wind in the Willows, and guitarist Chris Stein (b. January 5, 1950, Brooklyn, New York) out of the remnants of Harry's previous group, the Stilettos. The lineup fluctuated over the next year. Drummer Clement Burke (b. November 24, 1955, New York) joined…

Our Review

It was the Commodores’ special mission in the 1970s to combine killer funk grooves with classic R&B/pop songwriting and serve the finished product up to a huge and hungry public. Anyone who thinks the group was merely a showcase for Nicole Richie’s dad should check out Commodores Live! This 1977 release testifies how crisp, tight and sizzling the six-member band could be. While singer/saxophonist Lionel Richie became their star attraction, the Commodores were truly a precision-fused unit whose smoothly-moving parts were sublimated to the good of the whole. “Won’t You Come Dance With Me,” “Slippery When Wet” and the extended take of “Brick House” included here demonstrate their ability to jam with abandon without losing focus. Of course, the ballad side of the band isn’t neglected — Richie’s seductive vocals on “Just To Be Close to You” and “Easy” are bedroom invitations par excellence. The frisky, brass-powered “Too Hot Ta Trot” (a studio track heard in the film Thank God It’s Friday) complements the concert recordings. This is high-order funkmanship rivaling Sly Stone at his best. Commodores Live! shows how the group could be easy like Sunday morning — and steamy like Saturday night.

Can't believe they did this (5 stars)
Great Album ..always loved the commodores. But they're forcing you to buy the entire CD to get either "zoom" or "brickhouse" cuts.
Was'nt getting around this crap one of the reason why itunes was built? Didn't we suffer through this con for decades and accepted it because of the lack of technology then?
Oh ..I got a choice …I guess I'll exercise it and leave this purchase alone and hope maybe someday they'll come to t

reunion (5 stars)
The first "live" conert I ever experienced was The Commodores. This album exeplifies all the sweet love that all of us felt, "back when". When everyone was welcome to enjoy an incredible experience of music, love and dance. Buy this album and be moved! Absolutely amazing for anyone who has soul!

Fabulous!!! (5 stars)
If you buy just one Commodores album, this is the one. Led by Brick House, Zoom, and Easy, each song on this album is fabulous! The interaction with the audiance just improves on a great song set. Don't let this one go!

another review? (5 stars)
Really? no one has written a review yet? This is a member of Bowies Berlin Trilogy, and therefore among his best work. The entire album is incredible. Throughout the album Bowies energy is great. But there is always the cold lifeless feeling behind every track, reminding you that this album was influenced by Berlin in the 70's. A true masterpiece for any fan of great music.

What a Masterpiece! (5 stars)
I can't believe no one has commented on this album! It's a fantastic piece of art. Bowie really knows how to make amazing music. The album starts off with some great songs, but then comes V-2 Schneider: its an instrumental piece thats very atmospheric and ambient, and then comes Moss Garden and the song is a total xen like experience. It's one of those songs that will bring total inner-peace. This time Bowie pierces the human Psyche and fill

Bowie at his best (5 stars)
Following the release of "Low" in 1976, nobody knew what to expect from Bowie. Having successfully delved into glam, concept rock and soul/funk, "Heroes" is the second of the Berlin Trilogy that features both "Low" and 1979's "Lodger." The album is a cold, dark masterpiece, mixing the instrumental know-how of Brian Eno with Bowie's neurotic wail and stylish songwrtiting. This is the pinnacle of Bowie's

The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music-hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock album,…

Customer Reviews

Historic (5 stars)
As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the live recordings are not very good quality, but they are quite historic. This is the last known live recording of the band, recorded in Fresno, CA., less than two months before the plane crash.

Also, notice that the cover is the "flame" cover from the original LP. This cover was pulled after the plane crash. Steve Gaines, who died in the plane crash, is covered in flames in the picture.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Rocked… (3 stars)
But this is not worth your money. Get the original album instead.

Back when this was first released, but right after the plane crash, the album was pulled in favor of a sanitized cover without the flames. That created an urban legend about who had flames on their bodies in the cover art. Corporate hype to capitalize on tragedy.

Lynyrd Skynyrd – All Time Greats (5 stars)
Lynyrd is one of the greatest bands of all time, you should check out "That Smell" – i think its the best song on the cd

Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Lynyrd Skynyrd was the definitive Southern rock band, fusing the overdriven power of blues-rock with a rebellious Southern image and a hard rock swagger. Skynyrd never relied on the jazzy improvisations of the Allman Brothers. Instead, they were a hard-living, hard-driving rock & roll band — they may have jammed endlessly on-stage, but their music remained firmly entrenched in blues, rock, and country. For many, Lynyrd Skynyrd's redneck image tended to obscure the songwriting skills of…

Great Flashback (5 stars)
I first bought this album back in 1978. As a teenager I was blown away by the blend of guitar work and percussion. I was lucky enough to see Carlos and Co. live in 1978 and 1979 recreating much of what is on this album. No disrespect to his later and current work but this album captures Santana's high point in his career. The live tracks on this album are some of my all time favorites of any band.

Moonflower (5 stars)
Moonflower is one of the best santana albums ever. I think that 1976 brought back the music that made him famous and this 1977 release has new songs plus live songs. She's not there was a big hit and Carlos sounds awesome in the live version of Europa so this is an awesome buy for a fan of santana.

Great. (5 stars)
Moonflower is a strong and great album by Santana, you'll never get bored with it. I have this on viynl and i recently listened to Santana's old stuff and i discovered this album on viynl in my dads collection and thank god i did. I highly reccomend this.. and how can this only be the 4th review for this it should be more well known than this…

Biography

Formed: 1966 in San Francisco, CA
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly due to its combination of Latin percussion (congas, timbales, etc.) with bandleader Carlos Santana's distinctive, high-pitched lead guitar playing. The group was the last major act to emerge from the psychedelic San Francisco music scene of the 1960s and it enjoyed massive success at the end of the decade and into the early '70s. The musical direction then changed to a more contemplative and jazzy style as the band's early personnel…
