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


  2. The Monster reissue is the big one for me this week. I might check out the Black Stone Cherry album, but I’ll not make the mistake of listening to another Goldblum album.
