    Friends,
    recently I had some time on my hands and strolled through my old vinyl.
    I stumbled over one LP that I did not listen to for a very long time and rediscovered a treasure.

    There were really no "filler" songs on that album only "killer".

    I have to confess that my musical taste is quite broad and I really enjoy lots of styles . Whether it may be ratty or arty, retro or revolution. I really appreciate even things that I do not understand completely because of missing intellect. But I am always curious and I like to dig into something new and inspiring .
    So you will find me listening to anything from Al Jarrau to Zappa. (Or Bach to Die Antwoord.)
    But I really enjoyed to rediscover this album full of energizing and somehow innocently non-commercial - crude -skill music:

    Motörhead Ace of Spades

    Imho this one is a total classic. It made me rock out as soon as the needle hit the vinyl.

    No matter what the style of music it may be:
    Did you rediscover an album full of killer-songs lately?
    Tell us about it, so we can check it out, too.

    Here's one: Julie Driscoll & the Brian Auger Trinity, Open. I'm playing it tonight.

    I saw them around '69 as an opening act at the Fillmore East. Julie came out dressed head to toe in buckskin, with that stylish short hair, carrying a paper cup with some liquid in it. I had never seen a woman carrying a paper cup that looked that sexy in my life! Brian Auger's playing blew me away. It was Hammond B3, bass and drums and Julie's vocals. The band was amazingly good and got a very good reception. You didn't even miss the guitar. I remember them doing "Season Of The Witch." Julie was such a great singer; another killer band at the Fillmore East.

    Here's another killer no filler album; Them, Here Comes The Night. Will be playing that one tonight too. Bert Berns's production was so good on that record. It jumps out of the speakers. They mixed it really hot.

    @loudnlousy love that album man! I also think that "Motorizer" and "The World is Yours" were 'all killer' albums by Motorhead. Can I recommend some lesser known albums "Too Late to Pray" and "Moving out of Eden" by Australian band The Snowdroppers and "Spend The Night" by The Donnas. :)

    P.S. "Throwing Copper" by LIVE is great too.

    Motorhead is one of the best bands ever, but I wouldn't use the term "crude" when it comes to their skills. Anyway, another "All killer, no filler" album is Motorhead's "Another Perfect Day". Features Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy) on guitar. So you get the best of Motorhead, and Thin Lizzy in one slightly odd, yet satisfying mix.

    Here Comes The Night was one of the first rock albums I ever bought. I remember the day I bought it; December 26, 1965. I always had money after Christmas and rode my bike up to National Music in Montclair, NJ. I bought that album, the first one by The Lovin' Spoonful, and the one and only album by The Blue Things. I now have multiple copies of all three.

    I think (these days) Motorhead is also one of the most under-rated bands ever. Lemmy wrote some great lyrics, and the songs always seem to tell a story, or have an element of wit, humour, or f** it - lets Party. There's few songs of theirs that say nothing. I could go on, and on, and on about things I love about Motorhead but I'd make you deaf forever....

    The world is a little less colourful, knowing Lemmy's not in it.
    P.S. the only song I can't listen to by Motorhead is "Don't let Daddy Kiss me". It's too haunting for me...but sadly I know it's probably comforted thousands of victims knowing that the rest of us understand....

    I haven't actually re-discovered "Who's Next" because it never really left my play list but it is such a classic rock album and I never even realised the 'Gretsch connection' until recently via this forum!

    Somehow, I missed that in my list. Perhaps the top one of all for me.
