Format: Audio CD
A remarkable collection of new material from some very famous names makes a fantastic accompaniment to the very remarkable documentary that Dave Grohl has directed about the studio in the San Fernando Valley that produced some of the most original and influential music over the last 40 years.

Stand out track has to be the collaboration with Stevie Nicks: 'You Can't Fix This' - this is a thrilling, dark, tormented tribute to the death of Nicks' godson to a heroin overdose and just grows and grows in its ominous intensity for 6 wonderful minutes. This recalls Nicks at her 'Gold Dust Woman' best, and the brilliant collaboration with Grohl and co just screams out for 'more!'. It sounds even more impressively intense live too - check out You tube for some top notch recent clips.

Another destined to be classic cut is 'Mantra', whilst the McCartney effort is amongst his best for a while, and even Rick Springfield shows there's some life in the old dog yet.

Highly recommended, and destined to be a classic!

Most of the artists on this album are from before my time but every song is amazing. Pure quality hard rock music. It is also very diverse and has a variety of performers all of which are well respected in the music industry. A good all round record.

True there are a couple of weak tracks on here but given the way in which this album written and produced you can forgive them that. However, there are a some truly great tracks from artists in a style that you wouldn't necessarily expect from them.

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I bought this after seeing the film.

The vinyl quality is good and noticeably denser than most standard production LP's, with no pops and cracks that made CD's such an attraction when they appeared beside vinyl in the early 80's. One LP had a slight vertical wobble but this did not affect the playing quality.The only iffy bit was the shrink wrap that possibly contributed to the wobbly vinyl. The Lp;s come in plastic lined paper sleeves with additional card inner liners. The outer cover is made from good quality card, but the combination of paper sleeves, thicker vinyl and thick card outer makes for a snug fit for the contents.

The sound quality is good but one or two of the mixes are not as clear as I felt they should be ("Heaven And All" seems to have little clarity between instruments compared to tracks of a similar pace and BMRC are usually pretty good at this on their own work). The Stevie Nicks track "You Can't Fix This" is positively smokin'! There are no bad tracks on the LP and given the variety of musicians playing, it comes out as better than could be expected. Enjoy at high volume!

I loved Grohl's film, and you can't see the film without wanting this album. Equally if you enjoy this album it's a damn good idea to see the film of the journey to its creation. Unexpected collaborations with quality results.

If you enjoyed the documentary you really ought to buy this which comprises finished versions of the raw material being put together in the film. "Your Wife Is Calling" (Lee Ving with studio band) is a masterclass on how to construct a song in the studio. Other standout tracks for me include the haunting "We Can't Fix This" - Stevie Nicks - and the rocking "Cut Me Some Slack" featuring Paul McCartney doing what he does best and what he should have kept on doing. Every song is worthy of at least 4 out of 5, and many are truly 5 out of 5. Dave Grohl has done a magnificent job here... and it shows!

This is a soundtrack to a wonderful documentary film about a famous recording studio. The musicians who shared the director's (Dave Grohl of Nirvana/Foo Fighters) affection for the sound production of that studio get together and make music with the original sound board recording equipment. Includes performances by some true greats. One for music buffs who appreciate the artistry that has been lost with modern digital recording
