Friday New Releases – October 20th

October is flying by and there are a bunch of new ones available this week…even Christmas albums if you are so inclined.  There are some brand new bands, some old favorites and some fabulous reissues/deluxe editions.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know which ones you are interested in with a comment below.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

  • 61tzU2GB7VL._AC_US160_  Sons of Apollo – Pyschotic Symphony – (Inside Out Music):  Another supergroup and another one featuring Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy.  If you liked in The Winery Dogs, this is not the Winery Dogs.  This is a much heavier band with Jeff Scott Soto on lead vocals rather than Richie Kotzen.  Also on the record is Bumblefoot on guitar and Derek Sherinian that make this a massive group with a massive sound.  Can’t wait to dive into this one.

  • 51TQWYRXviL._AC_US218_  Europe – Walk the Earth – (Silver Lining Music):  Europe is still putting out quality albums after 35+ years in the business.  The took most of the 90’s off, but came roar back in the 2000’s and have been non-stop ever since.  I have held off from listening to anything on this one yet as I want to take it in all at once.

  • 61-DQ82ksAL._AC_US218_  Adelita’s Way – Notorius – (Vegas Syn): The Vegas hard rock band brings us a new release 20 months after their last release ‘Getaway’  in 2016.  I am glad to see they don’t waste anytime between releases with 5 albums in under 8 years.  I wish more bands would do that.

  • 510ndnM9xfL._AC_US160_  George Michael – Listen Without Prejudice / MTV Unplugged (Deluxe Edition) – (MTV Networks):  George Michael passed away Last Christmas (just noticed the irony now with that statement) and he has surely been missed.  I am glad to see a reissue of Listen Without Prejudice in conjunction with the released of his MTV Unplugged performance as well.  This should be good.

  • 61D5ogtoF8L._AC_US218_  Tom Keifer – The Way Life Goes (Deluxe) – (Cleopatra Records):  Tom Keifer is giving us a Deluxe edition of his 2013 solo album and I am always glad to get more songs from the Cinderella lead singer.

  • 51h8C3CqUPL._AC_US160_  Niall Horan – Flicker – (Neon Haze Music)
  • 511tP1hmPjL._AC_US218_  Darius Rucker – When Was The Last Time – (Capitol Nashville)
  • 61DHkPV+5xL._AC_US218_  Cheap Trick – Christmas Christmas – (Big Machine)
  • 41bQIFyEK-L._AC_US218_  Casting Crown’s – It’s Finally Christmas – (Provident)
  • 51PyZ+fq+eL._AC_US218_  Lindsey Sterling – Warmer in the Winter – (Concord Records)
  • 51g2Lb4eB+L._AC_US218_  98º – Let It Snow – (UMe)

  • 51AFYq5GyEL._AC_US218_  Boyz II Men – Under the Streetlight – (Tango Records)

  1. I’ll admit curiosity about the George Michael set. My sister was into him (and Wham!) way more than I was, but I heard it more than enough to recognize the power in that record. I still a couple of the tunes on the in-store radio at work…
