Friday New Releases – November 20, 2020

Another week of a ton of new releases as everyone tries to get their albums out in time for the Christmas rush. And there are quite a few that interest me and one that interests a ton of my fellow blogging friends which is why it is #1 on the list. For those of us in the U.S., this coming week is Thanksgiving and with a year like we’ve had, we do have a lot to be thankful for and now more than ever we should make sure we let everyone know how special they are in our life and what they mean to us. But before we do that, why don’t you check out the releases this week and let me know which ones you want to hear or what I may have missed as everyone needs to know. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! Oh yeah, my choices are in Blue!!

  • 81EapgdgF4L._SX522_  Iron Maiden – Nights of the Dead, Legacy of the Beast: Live in Mexico City – (Sanctuary Records): I am not a huge Iron Maiden fan, but that doesn’t stop me from listing this as the #1 release of the week. My first thought is that this is yet another live album as Maiden has millions of them it seems. But a friend told me that this one is cool as the track list is so different the last album and there are songs they haven’t done in awhile. I would agree that would make this one worth getting. What are those songs? I don’t remember, but if you are real fan, you will know when you see the track listing. I hope you all enjoy. And yes, I will give it a spin.
  • A1+JpbHIlSL._SS500_  The Wild Feathers – Medium Rarities – (The Wild Feathers): This is my top choice. An album of rare tracks from The Wild Feathers and since I have everything they have done and for the fact that I love rare tracks, demos any thing new by a band, this has been ordered and on its way. Oh yeah, and it will be signed by the band!!! Cool stuff. And if you want to know, they are a little country, a little folk, a little southern rock and a whole lot of awesome.
  • 81lDj62+hzL._AC_UL320_SR320,320_  The Dirty Knobs – Wreckless Abandon – (Mike Campbell / BMG Rights Mgmt): Mike Campbell’s new band. Yes, the Tom Petty Mike Campbell and that is all you need to know. He has been playing around with Fleetwood Mac and now it is his turn. This album was supposed to come out in March or April, but some little bug named Covid got in the way, but it is here now. Can’t wait to hear what he has to offer.
  • 518m+5-hcLL  The Piano Guys – 10 – (TPG Productions / Sony Music): I love some good classical crossover and these guys do it so well. They take some modern music and put a classical spin on it and you can’t beat it. Try them if you haven’t already.

And a few more that are interesting…

  • 81nXaDedo0L._SX522_  UFO – Strangers in the Night Deluxe – (Chrysalis Records) – The original album was taken from about 6 different shows and now you get all shows in full. The digital release came a few weeks back, now you can have a physical copy.

  • 81ud7Nu3ZLL._SX522_  John Fogerty – Fogerty’s Factory – (BMG Rights Mgmt): This one is cool. John Fogerty is doing the CCR songs with his own children. Worth checking this out! The digital copies were already out, now you can own a physical copy.

  1. I love all Maiden live albums John and this one is going to be awesome. If you want to dig into the world of Maiden this is a great starting point for a cross section of there material!

  2. Maiden, Hendrix and Nick Cave for me (adding to list). But the big excitement for me is another Killer Be Killed! I thought for sure that supergroup was a one-off and yet there’s a new album? HOT DAMN! I read it here first! Thanks!

    1. I like the Knobs album. It is scary how much like Petty he sounds when he sings. The whole style of the band has hints of Petty sprinkled everywhere. But it makes sense since he was a huge part of that band for all those years and the two were great together. He was a big part of that sound.

      1. It goes to show you how much of a partnership they really had. Mike was involved on everything Petty did…even the solo stuff. I love Wreckless Abandon song.
