Another unscensored song from the 70's

This band may not have been from America, but they were a totally rocking Scottish band, and this song was cool, because it actually played on the radio, uncensored.
I use to listen to a Canadian FM radio station, chez (Shay) 106, I stand corrected, when I was a teenager, and that is where I heard this song play, without any bleeps, bells, or whistles.

The Immigrant song totally rocked

While most of the teen age girls were listening to the softer side of rock, I was rocking out to the Immigrant song, which was on the Led Zeppelin III album. I didn't hear this song play until I was somewhere around 14 years old, but the album was released in October 5th, 1970.
Yet again, another cool 45 record, found amongst the piles and piles of 45's that my older brother, was lucky enough to receive, from that ceramic guy.
Here is a live video, which is from 1972.

Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song (Official Music Video).

And now for a little bit of humor for your enjoyment. I was laughing so hard when I first watched it.

I dare you to leave me a comment about this video. An Elvis impersonator doing a Led Zeppelin song .... Classic.

Everythings going to be alright now

This song is one of those songs with cool vocals and cool music. I remember when I first heard it on a 45.
My older brother was lucky enough to make friends with a local ceramics shop owner, who decided to give him a bunch of 45's, and when I say a bunch, I mean stacks and stacks.
This record was played a lot by me. I don't know about you, but I think that my generation was one of the best, when it came to 70's rock music, when compared with 60's rock music.
I hope that I am not starting a generational rock music argument here, but I stand by my thoughts about it. Yes, I know there were some note worthy rock bands in the 60's, but when the 70's rolled in, with the exception of disco, the rock music was unique, bold, and just plain rockin'.

The yellow see thru 45

I was 11 years old, when my older brother got the 45 record of the Grand Funk (Railroad) song, "Were an American band", and it wasn't your every day average looking 45, It was yellow and see threw. The original single was released on gold transparent vinyl. Tragically it didn't survive.
Today I wonder how many people actually got to own one of those yellow 45's. I am sure that more people owned the album instead. I am not completely sure what the song on the B side was, but for some reason, I keep thinking that it was, "Walk like a man", not to be confused with Frankie Valli's "Walk like a man" song. Grand funk's song was way more rocking.
I know that you will enjoy this video as much as I did, when I first watched it.

Please leave a comment, and let me know if you owned one of those yellow 45's, or if perhaps, you knew someone who did.
