    #3 It is amazing some of the bands we hear singing in english that we naturally assume they are either from the UK or US, there are many musically talented bands from many countries that we may be unaware of, and its a pretty good reason to highlight such bands in a buzz.

    @Randy Keho There's just nothing like music on vinyl. Carefully taking a record out of its cover so as not to blemish it with fingerprints, delicately placing the needle on the edge and then the slightly scratchy but rich sound forthcoming - all part of the pleasure. I still have and play records bought in my school years . Interesting article - I'm with you on the preference - thank you Randy.

    #4 No sayin it! A record in hand is worth a lotta digitals in the bush;) As a kid I used to get the most mondo-super-awesome-spaced-out feeling listening to The Dark Side of the Moon wearing a Sony headset! The sound effects map from left to right channel and over and behind on Breathe...making me feel as if I was suspended in space. Bose speakers!? Those sure would leave one speechless dear Randy! :)

    #2 Digital is very convenient, but, for me, there's nothing like holding a full-size album cover in my hands and listening to the record while it spins on a turntable.
    When the family's gone, I turn the system up to 10 and rattle the windows.
    I do appreciate the technological advances in speakers, though. I love my Bose surround sound system. It's their top-of-line, with nine mini-speakers that can blast beyond what my ears can handle and they don't take up much room. It was a bit pricey, but well worth it.
    I bought a SACD compact disc player (Super Audio Compact Disc), which provides multi-channel listening. However, the CD must be SACD to get the full effect and their are very few available in the rock format. Most are classical. Fortunately, it plays regular CDs, too. It turned out to be fad. It never took off.
    Nonetheless, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" is available in SACD. It's awesome.

    #1 I discovered Rory Gallagher through a buddy of mine from high school who's been a studio musician in LA for years. His uncle, who stayed with them for a while in the states, was in a band that later became Mott the Hoople. My buddy's family was originally from England. He recently posted a pic of the band from back in the day on Facebook.
    Record Day is celebrated around the world, but the site only caters to the states.

    Wow randy I'd go nuts in a store like that! Honest Injun, i stopped buying music with the advent of the CDs...unless very rarely. My brother gifted me dozens of CDs from his own collection pained at my decision. Another brother got me an unending supply of video downloads of cool movies from his collection, understanding my love for both. But yes, i downloaded loads of my old favourites' digital versions at great cost (the telephone bills blew our minds too ;) ...or converted analog to digital painstakingly, manually. So happy that you can go back in time and plug in those holes with vinyls! Nothing to beat the sound of the turntable blaring through large wooden speaker ensembles, the bass and the riffs thudding away at your heart, amped up and ramped up! You reminded me of a sentimental favourite ''If you want my love ...'' Cheap Trick! ;) Keep spinning your stuff Randy-man!

    Record Store Day is a great initiative, I used to save all my pocket money and buy one or two LPs every Saturday double albums were like a book to me I also liked going to an Import shop called Juke Box they one or two albums of artists not released in Europe. My local Tower Records have a great selection of LPs, I kind of think it is a swan song anyway and it will probably not last, I found CD's very convenient though but I have struggled moving on to digital only..... You may want to check Rory Gallagher I think they re issued some his albums :-)

    Searching for Sugar Man is probably one of the best documentaries I have ever watched. Even when I know the end result (and I am of that ilk that does not like to engage in a spoiler alert - and that horse bolted here some time ago) it is the kind of documentary that I can watch multiple times. The chief reason is the music, if not also the man. It is a documentary that hits home what one group of people may feel and how another culture cannot connect those dots, as well as a story that speaks across a generational timescale. Indeed having read this buzz, I feel the inkling to watch that film again soon. It is that good.

    @Gert Scholtz This is the second piece on Rodriguez in the past week!!! I shared a dorm room at Rhodes university with a fellow whom went by the name of Sugar . It was he who was obsessed with finding him. The clue was in the title track from the Cold Fact album " met a girl from Delluth early six o' clock this morn a cold fact" This was the suburb he travelled to outside Detroit and there he was ! I have seen him play twice now, once at the Byron Bay Blues Festival in Oz and In Vancouver. hes a little frail and still only plays the twelve songs from Cold Fact. As for Sugar, he has a very successful record store in Cape Town called Mambo Records, a big tourist spot!! Rodriguez had a profound effect on my while at university in when the 'troubles in SA began.

    If we take into account that the Hall of Fame intends to honor those who, somehow, have influenced the development of the genre, them all of those names make sense to me (although I admit that I don't know a few of them). I've just taken a look at the list of inductees, and I see that Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley are already there. So, to put an influential rapper such as Tupac wouldn't be that much of a stretch imo

    #4 Quite right @Randy Keho we all have our own little Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fames, In my mind there are just too many artists in different genres of music to class as selections for this if you know what I'm getting at, in other words it's too general but then again it would probably get too confusing for it to be more specific.
    Has it got to the stage where it just isn't relevant anymore? there are many of us music lovers that will never really be satisfied with the nominations, to be honest I wouldn't have given it a second thought if you had not created this interesting post for me and others to stop by and read....it's certainly an interesting topic for the music lovers that's for sure!

    #2 I agree @Andrew Porter The nominees and eventual selections have been poor for quite some time.
    I'm still holding onto hope for R.E.O Speedwagon, but, like the Moody Blues, I've heard it's political.
    I thought long and hard about Joan Baez, but, in the end, I just couldn't justify her in the so-called Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
    ELO is interesting, but there's just too damn many others that I feel are more deserving.
    We all have our own little Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fames, anyway. We've personally selected the inductees and we can listen to them at home, in the car, or anywhere we damn well please. We cast our vote with hard earned cash.

    The Moody Blues are in town next Wednesday, but I can't make it. They've been in town twice over the past 20 years and I attended both shows.
    I was a bit dismayed the last time. They had trouble syncing some pre-recorded keyboard/synthesizer parts and had to re-start a song three times. It left a little egg on their faces. I strongly considered the Zombies, mainly because of Rod Argent, but I tried not to let sentimentality influence my decisions. If that were the case, I'd made The Cars a lock. Thanks for the comments.#1

    @Alan Geller, Lana Del Rey is a well known name which isn't the case with her real name, much like E. John at the time. She's also featured on a controvercial SNL a few yrs ago causing a clash of opinions for long ...

    #7 As a matter of fact, I am. However, I'm having a great deal of trouble trying to get Youtube videos to cooperate. I'm in desperate need of some assistance and my daughter just left to celebrate her 30th birthday with some friends and family. I'm to catch up later.
    Interestingly enough, I celebrated my 30th birthday at a Bob Dylan concert in Chicago. Remember when they used to say, "You can't trust anyone over 30?"
    I was hoping this blooming flower of a hive would attract you @Praveen Raj Gullepalli The more the merrier.

    #4 Well I suppose I'll take that as a compliment Randy thanks, now it's just a case of moving the hive along and keeping the music lovers interested in the buzzes that will be shared here, I'm also looking forward to contributions from other bees!

    If you could see me, I'd be giving you a standing ovation with my cigarette lighter ablaze. I couldn't think of a better first contribution to this hive. It's exactly what I'd hoped for.
    It's so hard these days to discover new or unfamiliar artists. Unless they're super hyped by their label and meet the criteria of commercial radio, they're quickly relegated to oblivion. I think this hive is going to cost me a lot of money, but my "record" collection will benefit tremendously.

    #1 @Gert Scholtz once again your comment and appreciation are most welcome, nice to see you enjoyed the read.
    #2 @Henri GalvĂŁo Interesting for you to say she's kind of controversial, I suppose that many a singer songwriter has said or done something throughout their careers that has dubbed them as been controversial...there's been a few such as Axl Rose, Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber to name but a few, but yes her voice I've listened to a few of her live performances they have all been very good except one in 2012 which was pretty dire for some unknown reason! having said that as with all live performances we should never expect to hear the songs to sound the same as a CD, which all adds to the pleasure.

    She's kind of a controversial figure, so I've heard a few things about her, but this is the first time I actually listen to her music. And I agree that she really has a fascinating voice

    @Andrew Porter Interesting how she only really started singing and composing in her early twenties. I agree with you Andrew - with her voice she may only just be starting and will become critically acclaimed. Thanks for writing this good post - I enjoy reading about the background and life history such talents.
