Welcome to a HUGE Friday!!! There releases are massive and numerous. What more could you ask for. This is the first time in a very long time where I have 3 releases that are on order for the same day. I am going to love the mail man this week. The albums I am interested in are highlighted in Blue and the first 3 are the ones on order. Let me know what you looking forward to hearing and which ones I might have missed. Enjoy and have a great musical weekend! I know I will!!!
- Greta Van Fleet – Anthem of the Peaceful Man – (Republic Records): These young lads are constantly getting compared to Led Zeppelin and you know what? Who cares. Zeppelin isn’t putting out any new music so I am going to enjoy this. At least the young generation is still making Rock & Roll. This is their first Full Length studio album and I get wait to unwrap the vinyl.
- Whitesnake – Unzipped – (Rhino Records): 5 CDs and 1 DVD of Whitesnake Unplugged. 20 years worth of music including Starkers in Tokyo and Starkers in Warsaw, Paris, Germany and so much music. I can’t wait for this one either. It is going to be non-stop music.
- Ace Frehley – Spaceman – (Metal/Entertainment One): Ace is back with a new studio album and this one is all original (mostly original – one cover). And he has help from the one and only Gene Simmons who helped write two songs and played bass on those same two songs. Since Kiss doesn’t have any new music, this is the next best thing…maybe better!!
- Aldo Nova – Aldo Nova 2.0 – (Aldo Nova): Aldo Nova is back with his first new music in over 20 years. Ok, sorta of new music. It is a re-imagination of songs off his debut album. So, not totally new. I am a huge Aldo fan and met him once, but this is a little bizarre and not sure what the need was for this, but I will give it a listen before I buy it. I wasn’t blown away by the “Fantasy” remake. This one has me curious though.
- Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (Soundtrack) – (Hollywood Records): The soundtrack to the new Freddie Mercury biopic. A great collection of Queen songs and this movie looks great. I will have to see if this has anything I don’t already have, but I will definitely see the movie. The trailer is below.
