Pilgrimage is the second studio album by the rock band Wishbone Ash. The album focuses more on folk and acoustic music as opposed to the blues rock sound that dominated the first album. The album also contains an instrumental jazz workout ("Vas Dis") and a four-part harmony vocal track in the spirit of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young ("Valediction").
The album sold well, reaching no.14 in the UK charts, but the band would reach their creative and commercial peak with their next studio album release.

Golden Earring - Moontan (1973) (Vinyl, Lossless)

Year: 1973 (LP 1973)
Label: Track Records (UK), 2406 112 SUPER
Style: Rock
Country: Netherlands
Time: 39:54

Moontan is an album by Dutch rock band Golden Earring, released in 1973. It contains their most notable radio hit, "Radar Love" and was voted best Dutch pop album ever by readers of music magazine Oor in 2008. In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album came #32 in its list of "40 Cosmic Rock Albums".

According to Ozzy Osbourne of Black Sabbath, while recording their fifth album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Tony Iommi suffered from writer's block and was not able to produce any riffs that used to be the main body of the band's songs. After listening to the Moontan album, something happened and Iommi wrote a riff that ended up being the main riff of title song "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath".

Skid Row (Gary Moore) - 34 Hours (1971) (Vinyl, Lossless)

Year: 1971 (LP 1971)
Label: CBS Records (UK), S 64411
Style: Rock, Hard Rock
Country: Ireland (Dublin)
Time: 35:43

Skid Row was a Dublin based blues rock band of the late 1960s and early 1970s, fronted by Brendan "Brush" Shiels. It was guitarist Gary Moore's first professional band.
The band was formed in August 1967, comprising Brendan 'Brush' Shiels on bass guitar (born in 1946, Dublin, Ireland - formerly of The Uptown Band), Noel 'Nollaig' Bridgeman on drums (born in 1947, Dublin - currently with Van Morrison), Bernard / Ben Cheevers on guitar (born in 1947, Dublin - formerly of The Intruders and Sugarshack), and Phil Lynott on vocals.
Brush Shiels and Ben Cheevers had played together in a number of groups in Dublin before forming Skid Row. The band's first gig was in September, 1967 in a basement club in Lower Abbey street in Dublin 1. Ben Cheevers left the band in September 1968 to continue working full-time in the electrical industry. Before his departure, the search for a suitably proficient guitarist resulted in Gary Moore joining the band as a fifth member. Gary Morre and Ben Cheevers both played in the band for a short 'hand-over' period. Robbie Brennan temporarily replaced original drummer Bridgeman until June 1969 and Cheevers was replaced by the 16-year-old Gary Moore in Mid 1968, and the band recorded a single, "New Places, Old Faces" / "Misdemeanour Dream Felicity", for the Irish 'Song Records' label (the only released recording of Lynott with Skid Row).
