- “You can hook me on y'r tail, penetrate my soul Made me feel the sting of Rock & Roll” - Herman Brood & his Wild Romance - Shpritsz (1978) - Another 40th anniversary (although I am actually a few days late...): the 2nd album by "the greatest and only Dutch rock 'n' roll star". It’s one of the #ninealbumsthatchangedmylife and the only one in my collection of which I have three different vinyl editions. When the original album (in the front) was released, I was 17 and its booze and amphetamine fueled blend of rock & soul, together with the sensational stories I read about Herman, triggered romantic visions of life lived to the fullest. Of course, when I grew more mature, I realized that a life lived without boundaries can in itself also be a trap (resulting in Herman’s jump from a hotel roof in 2001). Still, it is hard to forget the excitement that came with the new insight that many boundaries are self-imposed. In 1979, a slightly reworked version of the album, now self-titled, was released in the US in a failed attempt to break the band over there. Initially it was issued with a female variant on the original cover, which made it look more like a disco album. Later issues had this picture by Anton Corbijn on the front cover, which happens to be one of my favorite shots of Herman. For that reason, I spent years trying to track down a copy. Of course, once I became aware of Discogs, my quest was essentially over. #her#hermanbroodiswildromance #hermanbrood #shpritsz #40thanniversary #1978 #rocknrolljunkie #antoncorbijn #discogs #nowspinning #vinyl #vinylrecords #vinylporn #vinylcollection #vinylcollectionpost #vinylcollection_feature #huntvinyl #yoquierodiscosvinilo #vinylsecretsociety #instavinyl #vinylgram #vinyligclub #cratedigging #itswaxtime #inmycollection

I just decided to join in on this but, this are nine albums that changed my life. Join in on this too. Most of them are Michael Jackson because he has such inspirational songs with meanings behind them. #nin#ninealbumschangedmylife #ninealbums #dangerousera #historyera #invincibleera #theultimatecollection #triumph
