Sleep ‎– Live At Third Man Records
Third Man Vault Package# 39 (4LP Box)

Busy morning.  2+ hours, seven sides, recorded direct to acetate and given the deluxe treatment by TMR.  This box set was available only to TMR Vault members so you won’t find it in our shop, or any stores.  I’m hoping the label eventually makes this available for wider release, like they eventually did with “The Sciences” last year. Also, that poster!

Here’s a Japanese Billy Squier EP with two live tracks on Side A and a round-up of three hits on Side B. I used the Google Translate app to read some of the liner notes and they seem to be pure stream-of-consciousness, with the writer noting that the EP is being released to coincide with Squier’s Japanese concerts that May but that the EP won’t be out until June, and that he’s writing the notes in mid-April, so he’s never seen Squier play but surely they’ll be good concerts because the live tracks sound ok. It’s a riot. At least the music’s good.

Manowar ‎– Sign Of The Hammer (1984)
Yngwie J. Malmsteen ‎– Trilogy (1986)

Looks to be a metal day.  I’m pretty sure one of these bands would call the other “False Metal”.  I’m also relatively certain neither of them are in on their own joke.

Black Sabbath ‎– Black Sabbath Vol 4 (1972)

Coffee, Smoke, Sabbath

Anyone else start hearing “Changes” playing in your head, every time life takes you out of your comfort zone?  That one song has become my personal 40 year soundtrack to that one insecure state of being, which occurs several times throughout one’s life.
I’m going through changes.  Universally relatable, and perfectly capture in song by Ozzy.

Melt-Banana ‎– Charlie (1998)
Morbid Angel ‎– Domination (1995)

Time to metal.
My first high school sweetheart was pretty hippy dippy. One time she hired the services of a clairvoyant, a “real” one.. He told me I would grow out of this heavy metal.  He’s probably dead now, and wrong.
Dead wrong.

  • Dimension Hatröss (1988)

  • Nothingface (1989)

Time to Voivod.  I’m not sure why Away doesn’t get mentioned in all those “best metal drummer” convos; he hits the skins as hard as anyone and has more prog chops that the vast majority.
