It's a celebration day indeed! Led Zeppelin has been nominated to 2 Grammy awards - CELEBRATION DAY for Best Rock Album and "Kashmir" for BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE.
ABOUT CELEBRATION DAY
Yes, it's that time of year. Love it or hate it, there is no escaping holiday music. So let's do it right. Last year's 'The Egg Nog Has Been Spiked' mix series seems to have disappeared from the Rhinofy archives, so we are re-upping (and appending!) it here with an extra seven tracks. Look for part two next week, again with additional tracks. From the great William Bell to Roger Miller. Let. It. Snow.
On this day in 1978, Chic's "Le Freak" started its seven week run at #1 on the US singles chart. Here is the band, performing "Le Freak" in 1978.
Make your family laugh this holiday season! In celebration of Bill Cosby's first comedy special in 30 years, FAR FROM FINISHED, the legendary comedian's entire catalog is on sale for a limited time.
Celebrate Bill's legacy with his most iconic performances & stand-ups on Amazon now through Dec. 9th. Get Cosby's latest stand-up performance, FAR FROM FINISHED, on DVD.
They're so much more than "I'm Not In Love."
1. "Rubber Bullets"
Start here, I did.
The debut album was big in the U.K., it was all over the U.S. rock press, but you could neither buy nor hear it until...the album finally appeared. "Rubber Bullets" was the hit, and what a breath of fresh air it was back in '73, when art rock and singer-songwriters were in vogue and Brian Wilson was in his sandbox and we were still yearning for that sound.
The track didn't hit in the U.S., but it was a smash in the world of anybody who heard it.
On this day in 1970, Judy Collins' "Amazing Grace" entered the UK singles chart once again for the 8th time. It spent a total of 67 weeks on the chart. Here is the Christian hymm which was written by an English poet and clergyman John Newton and published in 1779.
