Compilation: "Sucking the 70's"

I'm all about 70's influenced heavy rock, so it was really only a matter of time before I got to this - a compilation from Small Stone records called "Sucking the 70's". This is one of my favorite compilations as you get a new generation of heavy rock bands like The Men of Porn and Five Horse Johnson covering songs by the bands who influenced them; legit rock n roll bands from the 70s like Hawkwind and The Stooges. What can I say other than you really can't go wrong with these songs and (most of) these interpretations of them. I love the idea of this compilation as it does a beautiful job of bridging the gap between 2 eras of heavy rock and therefore is a must for any fan of the genre for that reason alone (and also, of course, because it's a lot of fun to rock out to).

A second volume of Sucking the 70's was also released a year or two ago and I'll be posting that one in the next couple days since it's just as good and contains songs by artists like Dozer and VALIS. For now here's "Sucking the 70's" volume 1 for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.
