We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll is a compilation album by Black Sabbath, originally released on 1 December 1975 in the UK and then on 3 February 1976 in the U.S…
Though most of Black Sabbath's classic material from this album ("War Pigs," "Iron Man," "Fairies Wear Boots," and the title track) can also be found on the collection We Sold Our Soul for Rock & Roll, Paranoid is essential for the completist. One of the best albums from one of the bands to define heavy metal, this album is chock-full of the best stuff from Sabbath's Osbourne years. (Where else will you be able to hear "Rat Salad?") The music isn't exactly complex, but it doesn't need to be; its importance lies in its evocative power, with which any teenager will be able to identify.–Genevieve Williams
"Close Enough For Rock 'N' Roll" was the seventh studio album by the Scottish rock band Nazareth, released in 1976. The album title refers to a saying among guitar players: it doesn't matter if your guitar is fully in tune, as long as its "close enough for rock n' roll".
An excellent collection of music by this awesome hard rockin' band from Greece that features 20 tracks (75 mins) of outstanding, world-class, blues-based, retro, guitar-fueled Classic Rock mojo that stands tall and defines hard rock excellence. Strong memorable songs complete with bad-ass riffage, way-kool dual lead guitars, rock solid grooves all rule in the world of this first-rate band of kick-ass hard rockers. True to their band-name, Super Vintage (formely known as Hush N' Rush) are definitely on a mission to Keep the Rock alive with their superb brand of dynamic "Rock N' Roll For Your Soul". An essential plus highly recommended dose of killer hard rock mojo.
2009 digitally re-mastered two-for from this Atlanta-based '70s outfit containing a pair of their albums on one CD (1976's Moonlight Feels Right and '77's Rock 'N' Roll Rocket) alongside a few rare bonus tracks added for good measure. This disc the first ever UK/European CD release of either of these classic albums. The first of the two albums contains their big hit and ever constant radio staple 'Moonlight Feels Right' - which has sold over 3 million copies - moreover, it has the finest marimba solo ever committed to seven inch vinyl! The great Starbuck name has been sullied in the past by a severe plague of naughty bootlegs and unoriginal recordings, but rest assured, our stuff is 100% the real deal.
In the 1950s, during the explosive birth of rock & roll as we know it, Chuck Berry was the man – lean and mean, with self-penned hits like "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Johnny B. Goode" motorvating his fast-lane machine. In 1986, in honor of Berry's sixtieth birthday, a concert was assembled at St. Louis' Fox Theatre – the very place where Berry had been turned away as a boy during segregation, and blocks from the courthouse where, as Berry says, "my forefathers were sold." In front of a ready-to-riot crowd, the concert brilliantly captures Berry's unflagging power as a guitar virtuoso (as well as his audacity in literally duckwalking circles around guest Linda Ronstadt). But what makes this a great film is what happens (on the road, in rehearsals and during interviews) leading up to the concert: Keith Richards, musical director of the celebration, nearly driven to tears by Berry's ball-breaking insistence that Richards bend a note just right; Jerry Lee Lewis' admission that his own mother told him Berry was the true king of rock & roll; a still-gobsmacked Eric Clapton confessing, "I didn't know about black men until Chuck Berry." Fascinating too is watching Berry handle his own business – traveling without backing band or entourage, demanding to be paid what he's worth – thus proving he also pioneered rock & roll's potent DIY ethic. An entertaining document of an original rock & roll immortal, Hail! Hail! is a perfect tribute to a homegrown American genius.
