Friday New Releases – June 30th

It is the last Friday of June and I have vacation time coming my way.  Not much coming out this week and thankfully that is the case as I won’t have time much over the next week to listen to anything.  The ones I am curious about are highlighted in Blue.  Hopefully you find something you like…if so, let me know.

  • 170x170bb-48  Stone Sour – Hydrograd – (Roadrunner Records):  Corey Taylor (from Slipnot) and crew are back with their sixth studio album.  Talk is this will be more of a straight up rock and roll record which I am not sure what that will mean, but we will see what their definition of a Rock & Roll record is.  Looking forward to giving it a spin.

  • 51u9Y6CGJ8L._AC_US218_  Don Barnes – Ride the Storm – (MelodicRock Records):  Don Barnes from .38 Special finally gets to release his solo album from 1989.  Thanks to MelodicRock Records (& Melodicrock.com).  I am eager to hear what we missed from so long ago.  Apparently the album was never released due to the label (A&M Records) being sold.  I don’t know if it got lost in the shuffle or it wasn’t good enough that the new company didn’t want to release it.  We will soon find out.

  • 51GgqHi3HHL._AC_US218_  Bryan Adams – Wembley Live 1996 (2CD Set) – (Eagle Rock Entertainment):  I love Bryan Adams so I am willing to listen to a live album by him as I will listen to most anything by him.  It will be interesting to listen back to 1996 and revisit those songs.

  • 170x170bb-56  TLC – TLC – (Musiq):  TLC was absolutely fantastic back in the day.  This is their first album without Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez and I am not sure what to expect.  I am sure it will be great, but there will be something missing without Lisa.  Here’s to hoping for a great record.

  • 61zC2h6gHDL._AC_US218_  The Beach Boys – 1967 Sunshine Tomorrow – (Capitol Records):  Apparently there are still unreleased versions of Beach Boys songs and now we have a 2 CD set of those releases.
  • 170x170bb  ZZ Ward – The Storm – (Hollywood Records)
  • 170x170bb-53  LANY – LANY – (Side Street Entertainment)
  • 170x170bb-63  Calvin Harris – Funk Wav Bounces, Vol. 1 – (Sony Music)

  1. The BA one is an odd choice for release – I suppose it’s the 21st anniversary and was at his peak. It’s not too bad as far as setlists go but I don’t think the sound quality is as sharp as it can be

  2. Not much for me here, I’m afraid… never really listened to Stone Sour, but I have a friend that likes them. My money will be spent on the new Danny & The Champions of the World release that landed today. Hopefully pick it up this weekend!

      1. They’re an Americana outfit. Last two albums were heavily influenced by some blue eyed soul. The reviews for this suggest some different vibes (one suggested Skynyrd type moments of brilliance).
