LOUD HAILER, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck's first studio album in six years, combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, "I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view."
Razamanaz is the third studio album by the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, released in 1973. It was the band's first LP record to break the charts and was produced by Deep Purple's Roger Glover who the band was on tour with at the time. Loud 'n' Proud is the fourth studio album by Nazareth, and their second to be released in 1973.
Freehand is almost a forgotten american prog band that release a single album in fall of 1989. Recorded during 1988, summer, this album has some traces of King Crimson (Discipline era) and here and there some jazz hints aswell. Anyway the musicianship is strong delivering some very fine moments like: Mastodon (one of the pieces with voice), are some instrumental here as well, title track - Thinking Out Loud is another example of good prog music of the late '80's.
