Heavy Rockin’ Blasts From The Past: Paul Stanley, Covered Call and Thunder – 3 Albums You Must Know About!






Metal Odyssey’s Scott Coverdale Reports:

Here are three Pre 2012 Albums you should check out! Throughout 2012 I was fortunate to get my hands on lots of great music both new and old.  Listed below are 3 standout albums that eluded me during their original year of release. For all the Hard Rock/Metal fans out there, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some truly great music!!

Paul Stanley – One Live Kiss

This live album from Paul Stanley came out in 2008. I have to admit, that I’ve never been a big KISS fan. There are many of their songs that I do like, only I’ve always felt that they’re a bit over the top as a band. Anyway, a few months ago I was curious to hear how Destroyer (Resurrected) was going to sound. When I typed KISS onto my iTunes account, all the KISS albums displayed and this Paul Stanley album caught my eye. I sampled a few tunes and thought it wasn’t half bad. I did a little research and discovered that this Live album is only available on iTunes or DVD. I made the purchase! Man O’ Man, does this album Rock!!! It’s a great mix of Classic KISS and solo Paul Stanley.

Covered Call – Money Never Sleeps

Money Never Sleeps came out in 2009. Just like the Paul Stanley album, I stumbled upon this Covered Call album on iTunes and gave it a sample. I really liked what I heard and bought it! When I listen to Money Never Sleeps, many of the songs remind me a lot of the good ones Bon Jovi put out in the 80’s and 90’s. My favorite songs are, Til’ the EndNothing at All and What about Us.

Thunder - Robert Johnson's Tombstone - promo cover pic!

Thunder – Robert Johnson’s Tombstone

Robert Johnson’s Tombstone came out in 2006. I really dig this album, it’s (kind of) a Southern Hard Rock album recorded by a band that doesn’t get enough credit here in the States. If you like the Jammin that Southern Rock offers you won’t be disappointed with the song Don’t Wanna Talk about Love, which is probably my favorite song on Robert Johnson’s Tombstone.

In my humble opinion, if you’re looking to spend a few Christmas dollars on yourself this new year, any one of these albums surely won’t disappoint!

  1. Scott – I’m gonna have to check out ‘Covered call’…as for Thunder – I just LOVE ’em! I’ve followed them since they were Terraplane, and have pretty much everything they’ve committed to disc. I saw them live at Monsters of Rock in ’90, and although Luke’s les paul was straying out of tune they more than held their own against the likes of Whitesnake and Aerosmith. They represent what the Brits are SO good at – In yer face, good time, hard rock! I don’t think they’ve made a bad album.

      Thanks for the comment. I am beginning to dig deeper into the Thunder catalog. I currently have the mentioned cd and Backstreet Symphony which I also like. If you don’t mind making a suggestion for my next Thunder purchase? From what I read about them they seem to be a pretty popular band in the U.K.

  2. I can’t believe that you don’t like KISS!
    They’re the best!

    That band “Covered Call” isn’t Japanese, are they?
    But that album jacket artwork shows the Tokyo Stock Exchange … those are real Japanese companies written on the cover.

      Thanks for the comment. I have a hard time listening to an entire KISS album and wanting to hear it again over and over. But this Paul Stanley album is awesome! And enjoyed it time and time again.
      As for Covered Call they are a Swedish Band. That’s pretty cool you are able to read the companies names on the album cover. I had no idea they are actual companies names!

  3. Good calls, Stone – Happy New Year and ROCK ON – RK
