Happy Friday. Welcome to the end of another long work week and hopefully something released today will fit your needs. Not much out this week, but a couple to look forward to for me. They are highlighted in Blue.
- Alison Krauss – Windy City – (Hokker, Inc): Hard to believe that this is her first solo release in 18 years. Sadly it is only a covers album and not original material. I will take what I can get from this bluegrass/country superstar.
- Ryan Adams – Prisoner – (PaxAmericana Recordings): Ryan hasn’t waited 18 years for his next solo release. He has only waited about 3 years. For him, this is his 16th studio album. That seems crazy, but he does put out a lot of albums as he averages about 1 album a year. I am sure it will be interesting as his usually are.
- Amy MacDonald – Under Stars – (Melodramatic Records): Not overly familiar with her; however, I find the song “Dream On” to be quite nice so she might be worth a listen.
- Golden Earring – Complete Studio Recordings – (Red Bullet): Not one I will run out and grab, but a great release nonetheless.
- Son Volt – Notes of Blue – (Transmit Sound)
- Charlie Wilson – In It To Win It – (RCA Records)
- Fat Joe & Remy Ma – Plata O Plomo – (RNG / Empire)
- Andre Rieu – Waltzing Forever – (Hip-O)
