Double dipping, but I have to. I think that this is the best of all of the rock bands to break from Seattle in the 1990s. I only rate Facelift higher in their discography; this is tied at second with every other studio release of theirs up to, and including, 1995. From September 29th, 2009...

R-1963077-1485615029-3155.jpeg.jpg

And those laser record players won't work with this clear 2xLP release...

R-1963077-1399079608-4142.jpeg.jpg

 

Warren Haynes is always awesome, but add some Billy Gibbons on A1, and record it at Willie Nelson's place? (And amazingly, that isn't even the best track, in my opinion.) Have mercy! From October 27th, 2009...

R-2247870-1369168736-3289.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-2247870-1369168809-9455.jpeg.jpg

 

Stoner rock. Fuzzy awesomeness. This was originally four demo tracks from 2005, but they broke up. Then someone started pushing several remastered versions of those tracks. This CD from 2009 is the best, in my opinion (and I usually hate remasters.)...

R-2017995-1258827814.jpeg.jpg

 

I know, I know. But I happen to like REK (as well as Lyle Lovett). There are some REK sung tracks on here, but the best parts are the covers by "Red Dirt" artists. Jason Boland and Cody Canada did 'Shades of Grey' better than REK ever did. (And this CD is far less likely to get me banned than the cover art from my favorite 2009 death metal album.)...

R-9930309-1488733548-6697.jpeg.jpg

 

This is a make up for not doing a 1998 release on #98. German power/symphonic metal giants, in an acoustic release.

R-2775943-1300523924.jpeg.jpg

 

I have no new labels for 1909. Here is a random release from February 1909...

Only one #9 in professional Frog history and it is the frequent contributor to the countdown, part of Frog nobility himself, Lambert Daniel "Little Dutch" Meyer, in his next to last appearance.  Thus far I have only found one picture of Meyer that even offers a glimpse of an obscured number, so I'll go a little different route today as I found a picture of Meyer's name in a vintage scorecard from game 1 of a July 19, 1941 doubleheader between the Tigers and Yankees where he either pinch hit or subbed in defensively (the lazy scorekeeper only wrote down what happened if the batter got on base, so you can't tell) for Hall of Famer Charlie Gehringer.

I call this a very good hard rock album. I have a hard time calling it a Guns N' Roses album, though. Released on November 23rd, 2008...

R-1593870-1543173120-3113.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-1593870-1543173133-3085.jpeg.jpg

 

Swedish power metal giants. Concept album based on Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and how it applied to World War I and II. Each track covers one chapter of the treatise with a historical example. From May 30th, 2008...

R-1825087-1245872101.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-1825087-1415907913-6008.jpeg.jpg

 

Their best album of this century, in my view. From June 17th, 2008...

R-1406572-1400699831-2233.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-1406572-1400699835-9576.jpeg.jpg

 

Dallas based band. Psychobilly? Country Rock? Cowpunk? Gothabilly? Whatever genre you try to stuff them into is irrelevant. They just work. Released in 2008 on CD...

R-9226396-1476995819-9006.png.jpg

And later (2016) reissued on vinyl...

R-9226396-1490976465-5578.jpeg.jpg

 

Solid blues, released on CD...

R-4741883-1457587362-8324.jpeg.jpg

 

Fantastic rock and roll/rockabilly and psychobilly CD. This is one release I would love to have issued on vinyl. From Belgium...

In 1908, the U.S. Everlasting Records label was formed. They released over 1000 titles on celluloid (hence the indestructible claim) cylinders between 1908 and 1912. Their cylinders were offered in 2 minute and 4 minute versions. They specialized in pop music and classical works. They also distributed to Montgomery Wards under the Lakeside label. From 1908,  'I've Got Your Number' by Ada Jones, catalog #385...

Double dipping. I think this is the better of the two solo albums. And the other was still great. There's a little more electric guitar here than on Say Goodnight to the World, but none of it is close to being hard. CD release from 2007...

R-1142758-1513971160-1348.jpeg.jpg

And a later (2009) reissue on vinyl...

R-2398823-1514120761-8934.jpeg.jpg

 

I hated Mötley Crüe in the 1980s, and I still do today, but I liked this album. Released originally on August 21st, 2007...

R-8517940-1491937958-2042.jpeg.jpg

And later (2017) reissue on vinyl...

R-11261733-1513829479-8488.jpeg.jpg

 

Under appreciated album in their discography, in my opinion. May not have the big hits of Bloody Kisses, October Rust, or World Coming Down, but solid Type O from start to finish. March 23rd, 2007...

R-940197-1507592479-4092.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-940197-1271793005.jpeg.jpg

 

I am going to flip the script here. This was originally released only on vinyl (with a book) in 1976...

R-2899397-1339286855-2282.jpeg.jpg

But it went digital in 2007...

R-1177256-1257698502.jpeg.jpg

 

In 1907, Aretino Records was established. They sold pressings of leased masters, on a premium priced record with an abnormally large (3 inch diameter) spindle hole. They also sold cheap players and expensive spindle adapters to play these records. They lasted until 1914. An Aretino Record...

You know it is a week to go in the countdown when the football players start to get scarce and Jim Busby starts to appear almost every day.  Guy wore a lot of numbers for a lot of teams over 13 seasons.

Yeah, more double dipping. Contains what I would consider the best country prison song since 'Folsom Prison Blues'. Released on CD on February 28th, 2006...

R-1385897-1215148940.jpeg.jpg

And a later (2009) vinyl release...

R-2332759-1507449312-3480.jpeg.jpg

 

The best Black Keys record was a cover album, in my opinion. But I am also a bigger Junior Kimbrough fan, so I am probably biased here. From May 2nd, 2006...

R-1299029-1476270401-7855.jpeg.jpg

And...

R-1299029-1476270400-7892.jpeg.jpg

 

Southern/stoner rock. Very solid original songs. Decent enough - but not spectacular - Jimi Hendrix, CCR, and Acid Bath covers included. From Albany, New York...

image.jpg?c=ganhk_IgMf1XrnrzGA24OA4Q1ghY

 

Dallas punk. This is a 2006 CD reissue of a somewhat rare (only 1000 - 200 clear/black and 800 standard black pressings) 1992 posthumous album. The Reverend Horton Heat covered 'Nurture My Pig' and paid tribute to them in the song 'Loco Gringos Like a Party'.

This works for all of the chapters. New Age/vocal/electronic/chanting covers of rock and metal songs. Green Day's 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' is the highlight of this particular release for me. From March 31st, 2006...

In 1906, Sears formed the Oxford record label. They had no involvement in the recording process. This label would replace their earlier, retired Harvard label. The cylinders were produced by Columbia and Albany Indestructible Cylinder. The 78s were produced by Columbia, Zon-O-Phone and Leeds & Catlin. The records were single sided discs. The series would last until 1916 when Sears brought out their Silvertone label. A 10" from 1906...
