Judas Priest remasters/Metalogy/Rocka Rolla

I've avoided all the JP remasters because of Astley's involvement. Then I looked at the liners to Metalogy at a store today, and noticed that Anesini was also involved. So do the remasters suck? And are the (album) tracks on Metalogy exactly the same as on the remasters? Is any particular copy of Ro...

Starting with the song 'Free Four' off of 'Obscured by Clouds' Waters began addressing aging, death and loss in his songs -- often with a refreshing lack of sentimentality, though some might call it a callous lack of sympathy. What about 'Corporal Clegg'? I've always really liked Animals. In part, ...

The things really intrigue me are the stuff w/John McLaughlin, B.B. King and Roy Buchanan. Maybe it's all crap, but I'd like to hear it at least once.

Hendrix boot advice needed

Thanks to our fearless leader, I got a tip that a local store got a boatload of Hendrix boots, used, and cheap ($8 singles, $14 for doubles). I bought the pirate "4 in 2" with Midnight Lightning, Crash Landing, War Heroes, and Loose Ends. I'm looking for opinions on the other stuff they ha...
