Here in the States, yesterday was Thanksgiving and this year we really do have a lot to be thankful for despite how bad 2020 has been. And since it is New Release Friday, we have even more to be thankful for and this is also Record Store Black Friday so dang, even more. I am not listing the Record Store Day stuff as it is too numerous plus not everyone has a local, independent store to buy from. If you want the list, click…RECORD STORE DAY LIST. Now, this Friday on our normal releases, they are plentiful as well. Take a look at the list and let me know what you want to hear. There isn’t anything I am running out to buy right now, but a few I will stream in the meantime to see what they brought. Thanks for stopping by and have a great and wonderful Weekend!! Oh yeah, my choices are in Blue…as usual.
- Miley Cyrus – Plastic Hearts – (RCA / Sony): Miley has been putting out some rocking covers lately and she has a voice that suits that genre pretty well. For that reason alone, I am looking forward to hearing this to see if she is bringing the rock…plus I am sure my kids will be listening to it so I am hearing it regardless.
- Smashing Pumpkins – CYR – (Sumerian Records): Here is the thing. I am not a huge Pumpkins fan, but I am still interested in hearing what they have for us for some strange reason.
- Kenny Wayne Shepherd – Straight to You: Live – (Provogue): Now, this one I am legit interested in hearing. I do like me some Kenny. I love his playing and I love some good blues at the same time. I also like the fact this is Live so let’s see if he brings the goods for this one. I am sure he does.
- Billie Joe Armstrong – No Fun Monday – (Warner Bros): Mr. Armstrong was doing the No Fun Monday’s during the Covid Pandemic and this is a collection of all those covers. I am not huge on covers all the time, but I like the ones he has on here. Some different choices than you would expect to hear from him.
