Triple Vinyl Tuesday #4 – Wings, Halestorm, Jonny Couch

July 18, 2017

  Here we go, for another Triple Vinyl Tuesday.  Let’s get down to spinning!   Our Old or Vintage Vinyl is: Wings – Wings at the Speed of Sound Label: Capitol Records       Release Date:  March 25, 1976 This album was the fifth studio album by Wings and by far, my favorite. The album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, during the Wings Over the World Tour. It featured all the bend members instead of just Paul McCartney on vocals. This song has one of my favorite songs from the ’70s, “Silly Love Songs” and I must have played this album every day when I was young. I still get taken back to certain childhood memories when the songs come on. They are great reminders of simpler times and fun in the sun. Features: Paul McCartney vocals, infectious sing along songs. Lot of varied musical instruments creating layers and textures in the music;  trumpet, saxophone, harmonica, trombone, flute and more! Favorite Tracks: Let ’em In and Silly Love Songs     Our New or Current Vinyl is: [Read More]

Here we go, for another Triple Vinyl Tuesday.  Let’s get down to spinning!   Our Old or Vintage Vinyl is: Humble Pie – Smokin Label: A&M Records       Release Date:  1972 This album was the first one after the Peter Frampton’s departure.
