VA: Rock Sessions Volume 12

heres the next volume of my personal compilation series. this time we have quite a lot of hard rocking stuff, with deep purple, birth control and blue cheer for instance. now these are the three songs i think are the most special ones on the tracklist:
track number 6 is a song by jerusalem, whos sole album was produced by deep purple singer ian gillan. although i am not that much into hard rock, that album is quite a treat – go and check it out if you like this track (its self-titled and from ’72).
right after this song theres a (i believe) not so well-kown number by status quo, called gerdundula (seemingly a girls name). i picked a live version here, because i first heard it live and then i found the album version (on dog of two head) rather boring. i hope you like it – this is one of the songs i play on parties when all people are already drunk and just want to dance like mad :-)
track number 11 is the big break-through song of ten years after, think about the times from 1971s “a space in time”. a lovely blues rock ballad that still has a lot of relevance today, because there are always things you really want to change but feel powerless to do so, no matter what decade or century it is.

    Seems the latest rock sessions file post is gone already. Any chance you can upload it again? I’ll check back in a couple days or so. Thanks!

  2. hi ray,
    yep i just checked and it seems that ALL the links are gone again. its like the fifth or sixth time this happened. i suppose though this was now because the links expired after 30 days of inactivity, what a shame.
    the bad thing is i dont know at all when i will be able to re-up them, because i dont even have time to post any new stuff here as you can see. i am in the middle of my finals now and after that i have to write my diploma thesis which will fully occupy me for a couple of months.
    i will try though to do it as soon as possible. but, do you have any suggestion were i can put the stuff without creating an account and without losing it after 30 days?

    anyway, thanks for still checking out my site :-)

    Sorry to hear that all your stuff is gone again. I wish I had some ideas for where to put it for free without it expiring, but I don’t know much about that stuff.
    Good luck with your finals and thesis! I’ll check back here from time to time.

  4. thanks :-)
    maybe i will have some time in july and august, but you will see.
