Vintage Vinyl Vault

Even more suggestions for the next time you go vinyl shopping.
PAUL McCARTNEY AND WINGS...London Town (1978) McCartney and his band crammed over 50 minutes of music onto this album (a bit long for records which made the volume lower on this one) but it's 50 minutes of some very cool music. Includes the number 1 hit "With A Little Luck", "I've Had Enough" and "Deliver Your Children." It's kinda laid back and McCartney's bass playing is outstanding. 

STEVIE NICKS...Bella Donna (1981) By far her best solo album, we're giving this one a 4 out of 5 stars. Of course, Stevie's vocals are magnificent and her songwriting is brilliant. Fleetwood Mac would have benefitted if any of these had been on their record. Guest vocal apperances from Don Henley and Tom Petty just add to the quality of the package. Tom sings with Stevie on "Stop Draggin' My Hear Around", Don sings with her on "Leather And Lace". "Edge Of Seventeen" is also another standout. 

ROBERT PLANT/ALISON KRAUSS...Raising Sand (2007) If you find a new never been opened copy of this record snatch it up immediately. What an incredible album from these 2. Slow and bluesy, and ddifferent than anything Robert had ever been involved with. "Please Read The Letter" is the album's best track. Other gems are "Rich Woman" and "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)". T Bone Burnett produced this one, yet another attraction to it. 

THE ROLLING STONES...Hot Rocks 1964-1971 (1971) A double album containing 21 of some of the most recognizable Stones early hits. If you have very little or no Stones musio this is a decent album to start off with. It was the first of many compilation albums to be released throughout the years. In 1971 this was a fantastic collection, today it's a nice piece of history
