Friday New Releases – March 13th

Oh Crap!! It is Friday the 13th.  Lock your doors and don’t go outside as there are a lot of crazies this day.  And we are crazy with new releases. Actually, there are a bunch, but not much of interest to me as has been the case a lot this year.  I hope the year picks up.  I don’t have any that I am dying to hear…nothing highlighted in Blue this week.  I might try a couple, but if I get to them.  I hope there is something for you.  Let me know what there is you want to hear or what I missed as I always do since I generally only list bands/artist that I have actually heard about.  Have a great weekend.

He started producing albums in the 70’s where he produced Graham Parker’s album ‘Heat Treatment’ and worked with the City Boys.  He also worked with the Boomtown Rats which gave him his first real breakout album was their 1978 album ‘A Tonic for the Troops”.

But the big break came with the success of his work with AC/DC.  He produced the 1979 album ‘Highway to Hell’ and then the 1980 classic ‘Back in Black’ which is the second largest selling album of all time at over 50 million albums.  ‘Back in Black’ was one of the albums I picked up just recently (read about it here).  He went to do another album for AC/DC in 1981, ‘For Those About To Rock We Salute You’.
