Classic Rock Anthems (Vinyl)
Thanks to Demon Records for sending over this release for me to review. This compilation is exclusive to vinyl, and features two records full of classic tracks… twenty songs in total.
It’s been produced on 180g vinyl – I first played the record whilst hosting my Christmas show on BCB Radio in Bradford, and hearing ‘Starship’ and ‘We Built This City through the PA system in Studio 3 sounded absolutely brilliant!
- Boston – More Than a Feeling
- Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
- Toto – Rosanna
- Kansas – Carry on Wayward Son
- Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
- Meat Loaf – Bat Out of Hell
- Mister – Broken Wings
- Rick Springfield – Jessie’s Girl
- Cheap Trick – I Want You to Want Me (Live in Tokyo – Japan)
- REO Speedwagon – Keep on Loving You
As you can see, Disc 1 has five tracks on each side and there are some classics – typical of many rock compilations perhaps, but great to hear them together on vinyl.
- Europe – The Final Countdown
- Ram Jam – Black Betty
- Boz Scaggs – Lido Shuffle
- Belinda Carlisle – Leave A Light On
- Bonnie Tyler – Total Eclipse of the Heart
- Starship – We Built This City
- Alice Cooper – Poison
- Heart – Barracuda
- Patti Smith Group – Because the Night
- Blue Öyster Cult – (Don’t Fear) The Reaper
Unlike some compilation where the second disc loses some quality, this isn’t the case here – Patti Smith and Alice Cooper keep this compilation lively right to the very end. Available from all good retailers, this is a must for any newcomers to vinyl, great for parties, etc.
