It's a remarkable fact that The Rollings Stones have released as many compilation albums as they have albums of original material. But for a lot of music fans, those greatest hits albums are where they gpt started. And out of all the "best of" releases the Stones put out, one has been an enduring favorite:  Hot Rocks.

Join us as we pay tribute to "The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World" with a concert featuring the songs from one of their most popular collections.  With Phil Angotti, Rachel Drew, Richard Pettengill, Jim Ryan, Benji Shefler, John Bowes, Jack Cassidy, and William Lindsey Cochran.

Great Moments in Vinyl plays tribute to Led Zeppelin

July 13, 2018 • Joliet Area Historical Museum • Joliet, IL

When Led Zeppelin went to work on a new album at the beginning of 1974, they expected it would be another single record like their previous release, Houses of the Holy.  But the recording sessions turned out to be especially productive, and the band came up with over 50 minutes of music.  In fact, they felt so strongly about the tracks they’d laid down (“real belters” Robert Plant called them later), they couldn’t imagine which ones to leave out in order to create a typical 20-minutes-a-side LP.  

Their solution?  Make their next release a two-record set.  And with that in mind, they began culling through the songs that didn’t make the cut on their previous four releases.  The end result was the impressive double album Physical Graffiti:  eight new songs, freshly recorded, plus another seven tracks that had been rescued from the Zeppelin archives.

With Judith Weirauch, Scott Tipping, Philip Roach, Alton Smith, Jonathan Reed, and William Lindsey Cochran.
