About time I jumped in to this thread, here's a good starter, some early AC/DC.

Right now I'm in the winter workshop rebuilding the master cylinder on the '75 RD and listening to vinyl.
In particular, the 1973 recording "On the Road To Freedom" by Ten Year's After's frontman Alvin Lee and Gospel Rock singer, Mylon Lefevre.
Lee had gotten a bit disillusioned with being on the road doing heavy rock and making big bucks, so he invited LeFevre on vacation to Jamaica where they put together the songs for this LP. Back England to actually do the recording, he built a state-of-the-art studio at his 16th century mansion in south Oxfordshire.
As has been recorded, "Among the many guest musicians, LeFevre met George Harrison at a pub in nearby Henley-on-Thames, after which Harrison became a regular visitor to Hook End Manor Studio and provided his sound engineer to help prepare the new recording facility. Other members of what became known as "the Thames Valley Gang" who also contributed to the album included Ron Wood, Tim Hinkley and Boz Burrell. Three members of the band Traffic – Stevie Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Reebop Kwaku Baah – were among the other participants, along with drummer Ian Wallace."
BTW, that is one of the very few live sessions done in support of the album,
Alvin Lee and Mylon LeFevre recorded live at The Rainbow Room, London in 1973.
Other musicians in this rare video include Boz Burrell, Steve Winwood, Ian Wallace, Tim Hinkley, Mike Patto (!!)) and Jim Capaldi.
You are the man Dude! I'd love to hang out with you in that ultimate man cave shop of yours some day!
OMG , A new avatar !
I can't deal with this !
Hahaha! That's my holiday avatar. My old avatar will be back after Christmas!
I'm looking forward to what you will be offering us for Kwanzaa..
Very nice Dude,
Have always been a fan of Alvin Lee especially "Ten Years After", Going Home at Woodstock.
There was a time, in the late 1960's, when every rock bar band had to have on their setlist the song, "CC Rider".
OH yeah! I used to love that song in the seventies!
I have that same turntable, Phillips 312.
However I don't have it hooked up right now.
I still have ~300 or so albums but I don't spin them much any more since I went digital.
And Alvin Lee was an incredible, amazing musician.
Well, as you know well, you have a really fine turntable there. And its cool that you saved so many LP's.
I'm still buying them.
Playing vinyl discs while I work is one of the ways I fight off the winter blues, cuz the ritual of carefully pulling out the disc, wiping it with the moistened Discwasher, and then letting the tone arm drift slowly down into the groove is simply......well its groovy..
and the little lites in the receiver when you turn it on are kinda like Christmas.
...and the shiny aluminum knobs and throw switches just complete the whole fun ritual. For me its the Pioneer SX-780, the one that Rosie raves about so much.
