20 years ago, Live released Secret Samadhi, a freewheeling, hard-edged musical statement following the group's initial mainstream worldwide success of their previous release. This album draws influence from a diverse array rock masters, ranging from Led Zeppelin to U2 to R.E.M.

45 years ago today, the Allman Brothers Band released a unique hybrid album that literally bridges two eras with the 1972 double album Eat a Peach. This album included tracks recorded prior to and in the wake of the tragedy which took the life of lead guitarist Duanne Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle accident in October 1971. The album is a tribute to him and his fantastic guitar work.

After nearly a dozen albums and constant lineup changes, Fleetwood Mac finally got their formula right in the mid seventies. 1977′s Rumours would become not just the band’s best selling album, but one of the highest selling albums ever up to that point in time.

Largely forgotten by critics and mainstream rock fans, Animals is a true original among a Pink Floyd library which is loaded with originals. This album also signifies a definitive turning point from the band-oriented works to those dominated by Roger Waters.

50 years ago The Rolling Stones released Between the Buttons, which features a nice mixture of hard rock and pyschedelia. This is also notable as the final album to have strong musical arrangement input by founding member Brian Jones as the band morphed from their earliest phase into the more Jagger-Richards dominated era.

The eponymous debut album by Blue Öyster Cult kicked off the year 1972 as well as the recording career of this Long Island, New York based rock group. Often referred to as “the thinking man’s heavy metal group” or “heavy metal for those who hate heavy metal”.
