Friday New Releases – January 8, 2021

Welcome to 2021 and the first Friday New Releases of the New Year! Oh how I have missed this post…I know it has only been three weeks since the final one of 2020, but I like these posts. For the first one of the year, there aren’t a ton of releases and there are only a couple I want to listen to so not a great start, but it is right after Christmas and this is usually a slow week anyway. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or of there is a release I missed that you think the world should know (or at least the couple 100 people that might see this post). Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  • 91NHdl52uXL._SX522_  Sammy Hagar & the Circle – Lockdown 2020 – (Mailboat Records): During 2020’s Lockdown, Sammy Hagar & the Circle did a lot of covers and posted them, well now they are releasing them as a complete album and I am excited. Sammy Hager & The Circle was the one concert I had scheduled last year that got cancelled thanks to Covid. That bill also had Whitesnake and Night Ranger so I was really looking forward to it. Maybe they will come around some time soon.
  • 71iSduxl+OL._SX522_  Passenger – Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted – (Nettwerk Music Group): Passenger isn’t really a band name, it is the stage name for Michael David Rosenberg. I like his brand of folk and indie music. He has a pleasant voice and he’s a great songwriter. Give him a listen.

And the rest…

    1. have u tried Never said goodbye? Love that one. It’s not far removed from his vh period. Never said goodbye has give to live and when the hammer falls down. Looking at the songs on it they are all good. Maybe try it on spotify or utube?

    2. All this Sammy talk had me look up his album Marching To Mars.
      It has members of GNR, Montrose, Grateful Dead, Brother Cane. Also Huey Lewis and Bootsy Collins.
      I got imtrigued so I pulled a Lebrain and ordered the Japanese version with bonus tracks.

  1. I see what you did there with Sammy Hagar & The Circle: “Maybe they will come around some time soon.” Circle… a round. Nice. Don’t pretend like it was an accident either. I choose to believe it was intentional. Lol.
    I’m not much for covers either but I’d definitely be in for a concert that featured them along with Whitesnake and Night Ranger.

  2. been watching those Sammy live bits on facebook and enjoyed most of them, but then I like covers. Of these I’m interested in Magnum and that Gibbs album. Listening to the Alarm change at the moment…What do u think of them? Always felt that they were way more than u2 lite.

  3. I’m liking the sound of Alta Reign. I get a bit Ghost, Journey, Dokken, Savatage and TSO thrown in a blender.
    I may get that and possibly the Mott.

    Also released today are Hearts & Hand Grenades if you like female fronted hard rock and Frozen Soul if you like Death Metal.

      1. Nope! And here I am STILL waiting for that newest GBV album to come in. The mail’s been really slow, what with lockdown and such. There’s a gift for my wife, ordered well before Christmas, still out there somewhere too…
