Friday New Releases – November 1st

Here we are the 1st day of November and do we have a lot to be “Thankful” for this week with the new releases?  Depends on your taste.  There are some juicy ones this week for me, but nothing I am going to run and buy…however, streaming will do nicely here.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what you are digging this week and if I missed anything.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  • 518jRU2pYmL  Miranda Lambert – Wildcard – (Vanner Records/Sony):  I don’t like Country music that much, but I like Miranda.  She’s fiesty, she’s firey and she’s kinda hot!!  She is someone my whole family likes and we enjoy listening to her in the car as a whole.  And I am just glad my kids don’t have me on video sining “Little Red Wagon” from her earlier work…it is quite embarrassing as I add my own flair to that song that the kids find quite funny.  But that ain’t this album.  I haven’t heard anything yet, but have heard good things so I will check it out.

  • download-4.jpg  Hootie & the Blowfish – Imperfect Circle – (Capitol Records):  After 14 years, Hootie & the Blowfish are BACK!!  Darius Rucker is taking a break from his very successful Country career to reignite the Hootie light.  And kids from the 90’s rejoice!!  Their blend of Pop Rock was a huge hit in the 90’s.  Can it translate into something cool in the 21st Century?  We will have to see.

  • 713D6b8mZKL._SS500_.jpg  Black Stone Cherry – Black to Blues, Vol. 2 – (Mascot Label Group):  Black Stone Cherry had huge success with the Black to Blues, Vol 1 so why not let history repeat itself with another collection of Blues covers.  This 6 song E.P. has covers from Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Freddie King and others and should be a nice hold over until the next album comes out.

  • 71Fk1ZkbSzL._AC_UL115_  Jeff Lynne’s ELO – From Out of Nowhere – (Big Trilby Records / Columbia):  Jeff Lynne’s ELO just did a fantastic Summer tour with Dhani Harrison opening (and my brother-in-law working Dhani’s sound) and now they have a new album.  Which was totally unexpected and has me quite intrigues to see what Lynne still has up his sleeve.  This one is pure curiosity on my part.

  • 81l9Vde2oeL._SS500_.jpg  R.E.M. – Monster (25th Anniversary Edition) – (Craft Recordings/Concord):  25 years since this monster of an album (yes, pun intended).  One of the band’s best albums (they have a bunch of those by the way).  This set looks fantastic with 6 Discs of rare demos, re-mixes, an entire live show 1995 with a 25 song set list and a DVD with videos and stuff.  This is how you do a box set.  Christmas list…this has been added.

  • 813z9+ArOHL._SX522_.jpg  Jeff Goldblum & the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra – I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This – (Decca Records / Universal):  It is Jeff Goldblum…enuff said!!

And the rest…

  • 81IpexV7rDL._SX522_  The Damned – Black is the Night: The Definitive Anthology – (BMG Music)
  • 71VbcJpMJSL._AC_UL115_.jpg  Bob Dylan – Travelin’ Thru, 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series, Vol 15 – (Columbia Records)
  • 71qfIPf13AL._SS500_.jpg  Highly Suspect – MCID – (300 Entertainment)
  • 61lWMMhT7YL  Fire From the Gods – American Sun – (Eleven Seven Records)
  • download-6.jpg  New Politics – An Invitation to an Alternate Reality – (Big Noise Music Group)
  • A1bVeS-g7-L._SX522_.jpg  Cold War Kids – New Age Norms 1 – (AWAL Recordings)

  1. R.E.M Monster is a great rock record. I will need to get this at some point. I liked how they jacked the guitars up on this album.
    Pretty cool your brother working sound for a Harrison!! Is this the same fella who did the work on the STP album?
    Thanks for these Friday New Releases as I hit your site before I hit iTunes!

    1. It is a worthwhile stop before Itunes for sure!! (ha).
      Yes, same person that works with STP (finished their new album btw…shhh!)
      The REM Monster is a monster! I might stick that one on my list…but no rush to get. Too many others to get through first.

      1. I caved John I bought REM Monster on Itunes. Way Cheaper as I can’t afford te 100 bucks from Amazon for it.
        Really wanted that live show on it with the tunes from the Monster tour
