Free - Heartbreaker (1972) (Vinyl Rip)

Year: 1972 (LP 1972)
Label: Island Records (UK), ILPS-9217
Style: Hard Rock, Blues Rock
Country: UK
Time: 36:03
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 226 Mb

Heartbreaker is the sixth and final studio album by English rock group Free, that provided them with one of their most successful singles, "Wishing Well". It was recorded in late 1972 after bassist Andy Fraser had left the band and while guitarist Paul Kossoff was ailing from an addiction to Mandrax (Quaaludes), and features a different line up from previous albums. Tetsu Yamauchi was brought in to replace Fraser, while John "Rabbit" Bundrick became the band's keyboard player to compensate for the increasingly unreliable Kossoff (singer Paul Rodgers played keyboards on the previous album Free at Last). Both Yamauchi and Bundrick had played with Kossoff and drummer Simon Kirke on the album Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu & Rabbit during that period in late 1971 when the band had broken up for the first time. Also, several other musicians were used on the album. The album was co-produced by Andy Johns as well as Free themselves.
The album was, by Free's standards, a huge success. It became their third top-ten album in the UK (reaching #9), and reached No. 47 in America, which was also a considerable success for the band. Also, the single release "Wishing Well" became their third-most successful single, reaching No. 7. It is widely regarded as one of their definitive songs.

Chicago - Chicago 18 (1986) (Vinyl Rip)

Year: 1986 (LP 1988)
Label: Balkanton Records (Bulgaria), BTA 12112
Style: Pop
Country: USA
Time: 45:24
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 338 Mb

Chicago 18 is the fifteenth studio album by the American band Chicago.
With Cetera having quit the band in 1985 in favor of a solo career, Chicago eventually hired Jason Scheff to fill Cetera's position as vocalist and bassist. The most used voices in Chicago now belonged to its two newest recruits, Scheff and Bill Champlin, who had joined the band in 1981.
Chicago again hired producer David Foster to create a soft rock followup to Chicago 17.
The band recorded an updated high-tech remake of their hit classic "25 or 6 to 4" (#48). Then, "Will You Still Love Me?" (#3) and "If She Would Have Been Faithful..." (#17) became hits. Scheff is lead vocalist on all three releases. The album features a brief, a cappella horn riff, Pankow's "Free Flight." Chicago 18 ultimately went gold, peaking at #35.

Back Street Crawler - The Band Plays On (1975) (Vinyl Rip)

Year: 1975 (LP 1975)
Label: Atlantic Records (UK), K 50173
Style: Rock
Country: UK
Time: 44:22
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 261 Mb

The Band Plays On is the debut album from Back Street Crawler, fronted by ex-Free guitarist Paul Kossoff. Keyboard player Mike Montgomery composed six songs and co-wrote two others on the album, in addition to singing lead vocals on "All the Girls Are Crazy" and "Survivor". He dueted with Terry Wilson-Slesser on "New York, New York" (a Mike Montgomery original, and not the tune made famous by Liza Minnelli and Frank Sinatra). Montgomery subsequently left the band and was replaced by John "Rabbit" Bundrick.
The Mike Montgomery songs, "Jason Blue" and "The Band Plays On", had previously appeared on a self-titled 1973 album by Bloontz, in which Terry Wilson, Mike Montgomery and Tony Braunagel had played together prior to the formation of Back Street Crawler.

Led Zeppelin - Coda (1982) (Vinyl Rip)

Year: 1982 (LP 1982)
Label: Swan Song Records (Germany), A0051
Style: Hard Rock
Country: UK
Time: 32:58
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1
Size: 256 Mb

Coda is the ninth and final studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released in 1982. The album is a collection of unused tracks from various sessions during Led Zeppelin's twelve-year career. It was released two years after the group had officially disbanded following the death of drummer John Bonham. The word coda, meaning a passage that ends a musical piece following the main body, was therefore chosen as the title.
