Friday New Releases – October 9, 2020

October started out with a bang last week and no signs of slowing down this week either. This seems to be the week of some massive Deluxe Box Sets with Linking Park, Tears for Fears and John Lennon each issuing one. There is a also a wide variety of artists from metal, to rock, to pop, to classical crossover, to country, to gospel and on and on. I hope there is something for you. My choices are highlighted in Blue as usual. Let me know what you want to hear and what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

  • images-2  Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory 20th Anniversary Edition – (Warner Records): 20 years, that seems crazy. One of my favorite Linkin Park albums so I am anxious to hear all the rarities and anything else they have never released. This looks massive and awesome.
  • 71MEqNhRJhL._SS500_  Smith & Myers – Volume 1 – (Atlantic Recordings): Brent Smith from Shinedown and musician Zach Myers have their first full length acoustic album. It has 5 new songs and 5 covers. As their previous work has been exceptional, I expect no difference here.
  • A1AvC+Hb3iL._SX522_  Tears for Fears – The Seeds of Love Box Set – (Mercury Records): Tears for Fears are back, sort of. They are releasing a 5 disc box set of one of their biggest albums which is full of rarities, demos and live versions. Can’t wait to see what was left off the table.
  • 713pGy8F+wL._SS500_  David Garrett – Alive: My Soundtrack – (Polydor / Universal): I like the violin, I like classical, I like pop and rock and David combines it all into great music. His innovative covers bring a new life to old songs ( and some newer songs as well). It is a nice change of pace (except maybe for this song)
  • 71GVrJkE1jL._SS500_  Patty Smyth – It’s About Time – (Miss Grace Recordings / BMG): I have to say, I really like this song so I am going to check the former lead singer of Scandal’s new one out. Is she still The Warrior??? She just might be.

And all the rest….
