There are literally thousands of Boynton Beach real estate owners who appreciate their classic rock and roll on vinyl. That is why albums now better experience better sales on record than they do on CD. Let’s look at some of the most loved pieces of work that homeowners now possess.
Julie Taylor is a middle-aged pharmacist who lives in a 3-bedroom home near I-95 with her beautiful family of five. For the last two decades, Julie and her husband have enjoyed staying in on the weekends and simply dancing to their favorite music, such as Mott the Hoople’s 1972 masterpiece, All the Young Dudes. They appreciate the work for its passion. With a version of David Bowie’s title song as the centerpiece, the 7-minute “Ready for Love,” and Ian Hunter’s passionate closer “Sea Diver,” the record created the genre known today as Glam Rock.
Julie’s husband, Ray, has his personal favorite, The Last Waltz by The Band. Recorded at San Francisco’s Winterland on Thanksgiving Day 1976, The Last Waltz is their bittersweet swan song. Accompanied by friends ranging from Bob Dylan and Muddy Waters to Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and Ringo Starr, the concert event on vinyl is historical. Director Martin Scorsese even created a timeless film of the same name documenting the event.
Ray’s business partner, Sean Stevens, recently purchased a home for sale in Boynton Beach. Sean also appreciates vinyl. His number one pick is Lou Reed’s Sally Can’t Dance. He explains that Sally Can’t Dance stands on its own plain in terms of content, as it wanders into new and interesting territory for 1974. The great riffs are extremely powerful and truly represent Lou’s trademark wit, not unlike his material with the Velvet Underground.
Of course, Sean’s son Jason prefers a more glam-rock sound. The record he plays throughout the house in The Best of the Scorpions. The cult classic from 1979 compiles eleven of the crew’s most powerful songs from their albums Fly to the Rainbow through Taken by Force. The heavy material is emphasized with impressive guitar squealing, on top of melodic ballads. Needless to say, Ray thinks it is garbage.
One record that both Ray and Sean enjoying playing is Guns N’ Roses Appetite for Destruction. Considered by both fans at critics to be one of the best debuts in music history, the 1987 cut is an aggressive and hard-hitting rock album that takes no prisoners. “Welcome To The Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” were the turning point for 80s’ rock anthems, conquering both the radio and MTV, while the less popular tunes are just as poignant. In fact, the two Stevens boys trekked down to Marlins Park in Miami earlier this month to experience Guns N’ Roses perform many of the modern classics live.
Then there is a Boynton Beach luxury homomer named Gary Johnson. Being in his sixties, Gary grew up with a love for Jeff Beck and the Yardbirds. Gary considers Beck to be one of the few gods of guitar, along with Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. Playing blues rock, heavy metal, and jazz fusion in several influential bands in the 1960s and 1970s, Beck gained global attention with the Yardbirds following Clapton’s departure. To this day, Beck maintains a sporadic solo career over the last three decades.
