Welcome to a very busy Friday of releases. There are a bunch of releases I am interested in getting, but only one I am buying as that one is so expensive, I can’t afford anything else. As Summer keeps getting hotter, so does the new music. My choices are highlighted in Blue. What are you interested in getting? Let me know what you want and what I missed and most of all…enjoy all the music. Have a great weekend.
- Def Leppard – Box Set Volume Two – (Mercury): Finally!!! Volume Two is upon us. Volume One was so awesome, now Def Leppard bring us the next set with the albums Adrenalize, Retroactive, Slang and Euphoria all on vinyl (or CD is you want). I don’t have any of these on vinyl so this is an absolute MUST!!! You also get 4 Vinyl full of Bonus tracks, rarities and live songs that is right…FOUR!!!. What is extra cool about this is that a friend of mine was asked for songs from his collection to go on this set and there of 7 songs of his (live shows, I believe) that are on here and he is credited!! Way to go Mike Ladano!!!
- Collective Soul – Blood – (Fuzze Flex Records): I am excited about this one as well. Collective Soul bring us album #10!! I am glad they are still going strong and they keep getting better along with it. I haven’t heard anything off this one yet as I want to take it all in at once. These Georgia boys don’t usually disappoint so it should be great.
There are a few more I want to hear, I just hope I find time after getting through 10 Def Lep vinyls and Collective Soul…
- The Raconteurs – Help Us Strangers – (Third Man Records): Jack White’s side project is back! I loved the earlier releases and have been hoping for more.
- Drivin’ N Cryin’ – Live the Love Beautiful – (Drivin’ N Cryin’): More Georgia boys. Old home week for me. I didn’t even realize they were still putting out new music so a nice surprise.
- Hollywood Vampires – Rise – (earMusic): Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, and Alice Cooper…you may have heard these guys before. They are together for what I believe is their second release. I like Alice & Joe, so no brainer in at least a listen.
And the rest…
