Fire up the Camaro and let’s go for a spin! Today we’re going to take a look at some vintage hard rock/heavy metal 8-tracks…
Various Artists | Heavy Metal – Not the movie soundtrack of the same name, this Warner Bros collection features, among many other hard rock acts… Buffalo Springfield??
New York Dolls | New York Dolls – The New York Dolls’ debut was a signpost of punk music to follow, making this is a very collectible 8-track.
Iggy And The Stooges | Metallic K.O. – This compilation of two separate Stooges’ bootlegs captures a good portion of the original group’s final show. During that performance, Iggy taunted a room full of bikers until they beat him unconscious. Good times!
Black Sabbath | Master Of Reality – Sabbath sounds sludgy, 8-tracks sound sludgy – this is obviously a marriage made in heaven.
Thin Lizzy | Live And Dangerous – One of the most overlooked and underappreciated bands of the 70’s, Thin Lizzy featured the talents of frontman/bassist Phil Lynott, as well as a whole bunch of guitarists. This is generally considered to be one of the best live albums of all-time.
Led Zeppelin | Houses Of The Holy – Jimmy Page + Robert Plant + 8-track technology = Rock & Roll
Van Halen | Van Halen – David Lee Roth + Eddie Van Halen + 8-track technology = Party On Wheels
AC/DC | Highway To Hell – One of my favorite albums. Bon Scott’s last release with the group is also his finest hour as a vocalist.
Ozzy Osbourne | Blizzard Of Ozz – “Dogs smoke in France” – Ozzy
KISS | Dressed To Kill – When I was a kid, my best friend Bobby Evans had this album and I used to think it was one of the coolest album covers ever. Still do…
