Many historians consider this to be the first true rock-n-roll record ever made though this is the subject of heated debate.
Despite their incredible influence, the discography of the band is quite short—they only recorded four full-length studio albums.

Both mono and stereo versions are rare and valuable, but the stereo version fetches the highest price. The original UK version of the album featured a graphic of a white speaker with soundwaves emanating from it, set on a bright orange background.
The cover design was scrapped, replaced by the photograph of a loudspeaker in the middle of a desert that new wave fans are familiar with, but not before a few were printed with the old design. It goes without saying that these copies are extremely rare.
There were only 16 copies of the second pressing of this compilation album. As you might expect, this led to a tense legal battle that lasted several months. By the time Elvis Presley made Speedwayhe was nearing the end of his acting career. The film was not well received by critics or at the box office. Rumor has it that only copies were printed. The agent assigned his case is played by none other than the beautiful starlet Nancy Sinatra, and the pair quickly fall for each other.

The record was later given a proper release innearly half a century after it was recorded. They can go for up to 5 grand.

The album-opening track "Wango Tango" became an instant Nugent standard, including a humorous middle breakdown section in which he shows off with a carnival barker-esque rap. Standout tracks are, in increasing order:. Hard As Nails - Ted Nugent has never being known for brilliant lyrics and this song doesn't change this trend for his simple minded discussions about sex.
Ted apparently has quite a reputation backstage with the ladies although oddly enough he was a Tee-totaller. This mid-tempo song has a great driving and chunky guitar riff which really makes you want to pound your fist. The guitar solo on this song leaves a little to be desired but is still good and I wish there wasn't a fade out at the end. A hard rock song like this should have an abrupt ending. Scream Dream - On this song, Ted's vocals are being pumped though some sort of Phase Shifter and sounds really creepy at times.
Ted's lyrics appear to be about the violent perils of the big cities like Chicago, New York and Detroit and how they give him bad dreams at night, making him want to Scream. Once again, there is another classic driving Nugent guitar riff on the verses and Chorus.
This track is a faster tempo than the previous 2 tracks however there is a nice little key change bridge in the middle, just before an absolutely blistering guitar solo, which starts off Chuck Berry Style. At the end of the song, he is actually screaming 'Scream Dream' over LP) over again, instead of singing it, and it sounds as if he's gonna blow his vocal cords out. This doesn't stop until you hear a sinister half tone laugh at the end.
Nice one Ted. This song is an upbeat rocker with a really good guitar solo, but for some reason was ranked 7 on Guitar World's List of the worst guitar solos!
Very strange indeed. This is all classic Ted. He definitely gives David Lee Roth a run for his money with regards to his gift of the gab.

Scream Dream Link Mb. Wednesday, September 15, Yes - Yesterdays K —, —present. This was a big selling compilation at the time and although all cuts on it have shown up numbers of subsequent LP and CD collections, I still see it as a necessary compliment to my YES collection. That is the only cut including Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman, the rest is by the band's first setting with Peter Banks on guitar and Tony Kaye on keyboards. Listening to those songs from the pre-Howe and pre-synth days it's obvious the band's special idiom that later would lead to world wide success was there already from the start.
Tony Kaye has a less prominent role than later Wakeman, but not less important. In all very good listening with top audio. If you're one of those who got deep into the group first with "Yes Album" or later this may be an ear opener and reason to look beyond. Now, one of YES's biggest draw cards have been their psychedelic album covers, produced by the multi-talented artist Roger Dean. Yesterdays cover caused some controversy for some people with the back cover of 'Yesterdays' featuring two young naked characters, a boy urinating and a girl displaying her genitalia.
But over time the imagery has been accepted for its real worth, artistic creation - and not something smutty. Roger Dean was born in Ashford Kent, England in He is internationally renowned for his unique style of album cover paintings, logos, typefaces, and organic architectural designs.
When Dean left the Royal College of Art in his first commission was to design furniture for Ronnie Scott's Jazz club in London, this eventually lead him to produce a cover painting. The painting that Dean created for Osibisa's cover, depicted a brilliantly coloured, winged flying elephant and an equally elaborate LP) colourful logo for Osibisa see below. This image and logo were a dramatic contrast to the generally more conservative portraits usually seen on the cover of albums of that time.
Dean's brightly coloured record covers for Osibisa were often used to decorate the windows of record shops, bringing, 'Happy Music' music to the grey city streets of seventies London. Following on from his successful collaboration with Osibisa, Dean was commissioned to produce a painting for an album cover for a band called YES. The YES logo became the visual signature of the group and was recognisable, not only from YES's record covers, but it was also imitated in style, in graffiti across the world.
Only copies were ever printed of the elusive red vinyl. The swedish band from Stockholm are one of the most commercially successful musical groups of all time. Sadly, both marriages could not withstand the pressures of stardom and success. Superfans of The Beatles will surely recognize the name "Quarrymen" as the first name the Fab Four took before skyrocketing Think Again - The Hours - See The Light (Vinyl stardom — although this was before Ringo had joined the band.
This single, which was reprinted by Paul McCartney himself is worth a heck of a lot of money. Supposedly, McCartney only had 50 copies printed for his friends and family.
Fans of classic horror movies have definitely heard this band. They broke out after changing their name and recording the soundtrack to Proffondo Rosso Deep Redthe debut film by legendary Italian director Dario Argento.
They went on to do several more successful collaborations with Argento and some of the most iconic soundtracks in horror cinema. The label reportedly got nervous upon noticing the back album cover depicted the bottom half of a dog — genitals and all, so they had the offending parts airbrushed before release. A few enterprising employees made off with some originals. You can tell if you have the rare UK export by checking for the yellow and black Parlophone Records label.
