MEANWHILE, BACK IN 1975
Sometimes just have to remind myself about what the hell has happened during all these years of so called metal music… So many great albums produced, so many amazing bands. After some coffee, cigarettes and digging my playlists here are the finest albums (if You ask me) from that particular year, the year I was born (who cares) … If You haven´t heard about them or just haven´t listened to them for a long time… The time is now, enjoy.
Have to admit some of these I don´t have on vinyl myself, but fortunately these are available online… Ps. Don’t forget these bands (all formed that year) and their legacy… Iron Maiden, Molly Hatchet, Motörhead, Rainbow, The Runaways just to mention a few…
