Friday New Releases – February 23rd

Welcome to the last Friday of February for new releases.  There isn’t a whole lot of new ones that are peaking my interest.  There are a few I will listen to and as usual, they are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know if there is something that tickles your fancy or if there was anything that I don’t have on my list.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

  • 510qrK6DCuL._AC_US436_QL65_  Alice Cooper – The Sound of A E.P. – (Edel Germany):  Alice Cooper’s latest album ‘Paranormal’ is absolutely stellar.  This is really just a single release of “The Sound of A” from that album, but what makes it special is the 4 B-Sides you get as well including Live versions of “The Black Widow”, “Public Animal #9”, “Is It My Body” and “Cold Ethyl”.  That makes it worth it!!

  • 715ygsnBa6L._SX522_.jpg  CoreLeoni – The Greatest Hits Part 1 – (Frontiers Records):  Leo Leoni, guitarist from the band Gotthard, releases this on the 25th Anniversary of Gotthard to celebrate rock and bring back some songs that Gotthard has left behind.  With singer Ronnie Romero taking on the vocals this could be a very interesting project.  Worth at least a listen.

  • 61PNnSaceoL  Michael Schenker Fest – A Decade of the Mad Axeman Michael Schenker – (INAUKUSTIC): – A greatest hits compilation from the last ten years and actually features a crap load of great talent… Don Airey, Gary Barden, Francis Buchholz, Wayne Findlay, Chris Glen, Steve Mann, Robin McAuley,Ted McKenna, Neil Murray, Simon Phillips, Herman Rarebell, Elliott ‘Dean’ Rubinson, Chris Slade, Brian Tichy, Michael Voss, Pete Way, Doogie White and Special Guests: Michael Amott, Graham Bonnet, Rudolf Schenker, Jeff Scott Soto, Leslie Wes

  1. ‘The Sound of A’ sounds like a fantastic collaboration between Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd. Listen to ‘Have a Cigar’ by Pink Floyd, it is very reminiscent of ‘The Sound of A’ If the rest of the album is anything like this I might just have to give it a go.

          1. Ah STP the two songs I hear on out local crap radio are quite good….I will check that one out for sure!
            Kip Winger Box Set??!
            Man…please tell me he has a dance mix of Madaline!
            Is it Winger stuff or his solo?
            Winger I just watched some stuff from this month on you tube …they sound real good Kip has aged well..sounds good


  2. Nothing I’m particularly excited about, but I’ll check out the Cooper EP, Schenker, and spend some time mulling over whether to drop money on The Doors release.
