    Jimi Hendrix, Blues At Midnight, 2005, Radioactve EU, RR2LP105, 2LP, Limited Ed.

    Sad, sad, sad: it's better for us, not to know how many lousy live jammings JH did. So don't buy this one: "JH, Blues At Midnight", Radioactive Records, 2005. Recorded live at the Café au Go Go, Greenwich Village, NYC, March 1968 and at Generation Club, NYC, April 1968.
    Typical for that sort of crap is the notice shown in the credits for the vocals: track 1,6 "unknown vocalist".
    Does anybody want to listen to "Little wing" C3 lacking the voice of JH?

    This is robbing of dead people...

    Lou Reed, Metal Machine Music, 1975

    Waste of vinyl. 64 minutes of feedback, clattering and unnerving noise.

    Jethro Tull, Under Wraps, 1984, Chrysalis Germany, 206 518

    In 1983 the master of the flute had discovered the synthesizers and drum machines. Nobody told him to avoid them because he produced "Walk into light" and this one at home. Possibly Martin Barre whispered it to him? Therefore Martin Barre lost his job during the next years more and more. "Saboteur"A5. And that fact was the end of a wonderful band. Waste. Waste of vinyl...

    ELP, In Concert, 1979, Ariola Germany, 200852-320

    "Pictures at an exhibiton", live at Olympic Stadium, Montreal. This is definitively the worst version of Modest Mussorgsky's masterpiece. This record was destroyed by too much boring synthesizer. 16'07" of incredible botch. It has no more soul at all. Modest Mussorgsky might have rolled over in his grave, modestly...

    Of The Beatles, George was always the guy that I appreciated most.

    Even post-Beatles , he showed great talent, BUT he also did an album
    called "Wonderwall Music"

    I think it's long before the 1 minute mark when I've had enough.

    Thin Lizzy, Thunder And Lightning, 1983, Vertigo Germany, 810 490-1

    Sad Sad Sad. Lack of melodies.These robotic guitars were played/recorded uninspired, cold and mechanically appropriate to the dark and dumb sleeve cover art. No Jim Fitzpatrick art work anymore. The production by Chris Tsangarides is in typical 80ies' metal style. The best track is A3, which has a haunting mood: "The sun goes down". For the rest: lifeless generic metal ambience. A world of drugs that would let Phil Lynott (1949-1986) last for not more than three years. Sad Sad Sad...

    Joni Mitchell, Mingus, 1979, Asylum Germany, AS 53 091

    No earaches, but this one is not a highlight of creativity. Lack of melodies, lack of song structure. Languid incoherent jams. Not really a bad one, but a little bit disappointing for a tribute album though she had these great musicians in the studio: Weather Report minus Zawinul plus Hancock.

    Joni Mitchell

    I saw her live in '68 at Big Sur , fine show , loved her first album, but......

    she turned out something (music ?) that had a bunch of noises from wild animals, at that point i said no, no more Joni Mitchell for me.

    The New Ventures, Rocky Road, 1976, UA USA, UA-LA586G

    The worst album the Ventures ever did. Disco! Very very bad: an extended disco adaptation of Glenn Miller's "Moonlight Serenade". Shame on the Ventures. Unsavory...

    Elton John, Victim Of Love, 1979, Rocket Germany, 9103 503

    Disco! No go! No song was composed by Elton John. Worst bluff package ever? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIjdraKhUuk
