FINALLY!! A Massive Week of new releases. I mean this is the biggest week since this whole Corona outbreak started and thank goodness. We need this!! There a lot on my list this week…a whole lot. They are highlighted in Blue as usual. What interests you, what did I miss, what what what??? Please let me know. I hope you have a great weekend and you know what I’ll be doing!!! Thanks for stopping by.
- Def Leppard – Hits Vegas (Live) – (Bludgeon Riffola Ltd): Def Leppard has two out this week…that is right…TWO!! You can also get it as one BluRay or DVD set that has both albums on CD and in Video format which I have the BluRay version coming to me. This is the disc I am more excited about, the Vegas Residency Show as they tend to play a lot of DEEP DEEP CUTS and that is what the collector in me wants.
- Def Leppard – Hysteria at the O2 (Live) – Bludgeon Riffola Ltd): Release #2 is for the London gig where they played the Hysteria album in its entirety which I already have from the Viva! Hysteria Vegas show years back, but the completist in me has to have this one too.
- Lady Gaga – Chromatica – (Interscope Records): Lady Gaga finally releases her long awaited follow-up to Joanne which was sensational. Covid-19 delayed this a bit, but now its time to see the light of day as the world starts to creep back to life as most stay at home orders are starting to be released. I have liked what I have heard so far, but her albums tend to be so varied I can’t wait to see what she has in store.
- Rush – Permanent Waves (40th Anniversary) – (Mercury Records): The 40th Anniversary Edition of the Permanent Waves. What more needs to be said..Rush!! check…Permanent Waves album! check…Perfect! Check!! Now “check” out the unboxing video below to see all that you get.
- Vandenberg – 2020 – (Mascot Label Group): Adrian Vandenberg has brought his old band back to life and you know what, I am excited to see what he has in store. I am hoping for more guitar solos than what we get from Moonkings, and from what I have heard, we should be getting just that.
- Alestorm – Curse of the Crystal Coconut – (Napalm Records): Okay, don’t judge me. I just want to hear this one at least once as who doesn’t like a metal band that thinks that they are pirates!! I mean…come on!!!
And everything else…enjoy!!!
