Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: Led Zeppelin’s ‘Song Remains The Same’ Box Set

ZepSRTSphoto 3

I love this box set! 180 gram vinyl that sounds amazing with extra tracks like the outstanding live version of ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. This is a scratch and dent copy I got on ebay for about $30. I could care less about the edge wear on the box because the vinyl sounds so fantastic! New copies can be found for as little as $50 on discogs, ebay, and amazon. One of my favorites from my collection.

This is my original well-played copy of ‘Double Vision’ along with an autographed copy of ‘Can’t Slow Down’ which my daughter bought at a Foreigner concert a few years ago. I’ve passed on my love of vinyl to her, and she even likes a classic rock band or three. WOUR’s Rock The Amp is July 11 at the Lakeview Amp with Foreigner, Cheap Trick, & Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com & livenation.com.

With 10 laps to go at Homestead-Miami, Carl Edwards wrecked after contact with Joey Logano, ending both of their hopes for a championship. Meanwhile after racing from the back of the pack all day Jimmie Johnson laid in wait ultimately leading the most important lap of the race…the last one. Jimmie now joins Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt as a 7 time champion. Dennis Neal compares and contrasts those championships, plus he’ll be headed to Las Vegas to shoot more pics at Championship Week like these…

Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: The Ramones ‘Eaten Alive’ Live In Utica

This is a record I picked up at Other Music, a very cool record store in Greenwich Village which unfortunately just closed earlier this year. A couple years ago as I thumbed through the racks of vinyl, I was amazed to find this Ramones concert recorded in Utica at 4 Acres! The sound quality is pretty good for being an unofficial release, and I have since seen this with a different cover…Maybe you were there???
