Favorite Bands When I Was Young
5 of my favorite bands and their albums from when I was young. Hmm... This is gonna be tough since I smashed all my records a few years after I was born again. (In reality, I never had very many albums because I was financially-challenged growing up)
The new fellowship I joined was a bit extreme, and in retrospect, I think we were almost a cult! We were part of that discipleship movement in the early 70's that placed submission to leadership as a priority in your spiritual walk. We used to hear "you are out of submission" so often that we made a joke of it. Well if we are "out of submission", we better go buy some, but I digress.... One night we had an "Old Life Night" and we were supposed to bring all the stuff from our old life we hadn't yet parted with. The vinyl LP's didn't really smash, they kinda just bent when you tried to break them in half. This is what I remember throwing in the pile and bending up.
Jethro Tull: Aqualung (the imagery, the whistling into the flute as Ian played)
Black Sabbath: Master of Reality (absolute crap, but I loved the fuzzed out guitar riffs)
Creedence Clearwater Revival: Cosmos Factory (Now how could Creedence be satanic I ask you?)
Bob Dylan- Blood on the Tracks (one of his best albums in my opinion and I sincerely regret getting rid of this gem.)
Fav Albums I didn't smash because they were my older brother's
Iron Butterfly-Ina Gadda Da Vita
Led Zeppelin's first album.
It wasn't until I went to college in 1976, and met other real Christians who could appreciate contemporary music without guilt or reproach, that I loosened up a bit. I got into acoustic music and the rest is history.
