I recently discovered the digitally remastered CD version of all 3 Aphrodite's Child albums on Fruit Gum records for just a dollar at Goodwill. Thought these albums would be perfect for the blog so here they are for all to enjoy. Click here to listen.

This double album is recognized as one of the most important early progressive rock works and is a defining example of a concept album. Lots of info on Wikipedia so click here to read more about this album. Click here to listen.

Mike Oldfield - Amarok

Year: 1990
Country: UK
I recently took the one dollar gamble on this album mainly because of the list of instruments used to make this recording. I knew the name sounded familiar but Tubular Bells didn't pop into my head until I started listening. I've seen it listed as New Age but I'd call it Experimental. Click here to listen.
