Happy Friday. I am in a very busy season at work and I need some new music to listen to so I can make it through this time. Sadly, not a whole lot I am interested in this week. I hope there is something for you. Mine are highlighted in Blue…
- Mr. Big – Defying Gravity – (Frontiers Records Srl): Can’t wait to play this one. Mr. Big has been back in a “big” way since 2010. Now they do take 3-4 years between records, but it is better than the 9 years prior to that. Either way, it is just great to get new music from this very talented band of musicians. When ever you can have Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheenan, Pat Torpey and Eric Martin together, you have to be excited. The opening bass line of this song is unbelievable and has definitely got me excited about this one.
- Europe – The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show: Live at the Roundhouse – (Hell & Back Recordings): Say it isn’t so…30 years…REALLY!! Damn! I am getting old. If you don’t know, Europe has been doing their thing for all this time and I am happy to see a live album to celebrate The Final Countdown. This will definitely get a few spins. I didn’t see a video for this so might as well show “The Final Countdown”.
