Friday New Releases – October 22, 2021

Happy Friday. And boy, do we have a ton of releases for you this week. We are bringing you 53 new albums for you to checkout. I know, you will never get to them all as there is no way, so find the ones you want the most and check them out. I have a couple I am going to listen to for sure and a several I will give a spin when I can. Those are all marked in Blue. Now let me know what you want to hear and what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • 81zNesv6oFL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Sixx A.M. – Hits – (Better Noise Records): Nikki Sixx and the boys are back with a greatest hits package and thankfully we will 6 new tracks and/or new mixes. I really have enjoyed there albums so this will add to the collection and I am sure it sounds better than Cure probably will…oooh…sorry that was harsh.
  • 81RdiE11GcS._SX522_  Duran Duran – Future Past – (Tape Modern / BMG): This is the band’s15th studio album and will feature collaborations with Giorgio Moroder, Mark Ronson, Lykke Li. These guys have been going strong for 40 years and I can say I am interested in to what they have to bring us now. Their releases have been hit or miss with me, but there are always a bunch of tracks I do like so ready to give it a try every time they release a new one.

Friday New Releases – August 20, 2021

Happy Friday! We’ve made it through another week and not a moment too soon. I am ready for this weekend. Thankfully, we also have a ton of new releases to listen to this week (like most weeks lately. There are only a couple I really want to hear and I have marked those in Blue. There are others I’m curious about, but we will see if I have the time. Check out all the releases and let me know what you want to hear this week and let me know what album releases I may have missed. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • 81bYHjvl9vL._SS500_  Anderson East – Maybe We Never Die – (Low Country Sound / Elektra): Anderson’s last album, ‘Encore’, was exceptional. I am hoping for more of the same. If you like country mixed with soul, R&B and Americana, then this will be right up your alley. Can’t wait to give it a spin.
  • A1V5INA0ecS._SX522_  Switchfoot – Interrobang – (Fantasy Records / Concord): Switchfoot is always labeled as a Christian act, but they are so much more. They are alternative, a little post-grunge and power pop and I like it all. I am also a big fan of Jon Foreman’s vocals. I will be seeing them in concert in a couple months as they open for Needtobreathe so this will be a good show.

Concerts, Concerts, Concerts – The 80’s

I have been going through this rock & roll trip down memory lane with this blog.  It started with the vinyl records I found in a box and than last week with the posters.  I actually found one more box from my younger days and this one had a ton of concert ticket stubs from over the years.  I also found a couple concert T’s and a couple programs as well.  I still can’t believe I kept all this stuff, but I am glad I did.

Going to a concert nowadays, they don’t give you a physical ticket anymore.  If they do, they charge you for it.  Nope, tickets are on your phone and get scanned in or you print it out on your printer.  Not the same as those dot matrix printers from the old days.

You also used to stand in line for tickets.  You had to arrive an hour or two before the tickets went on sale whether it was hot, cold, raining or snowing.  We did it each and every time we wanted to go see a show.  And we loved it!  Now you go online from the comfort of you home…not the same.

Whether you want to or not, I am going to take you on a journey of my musical concert experiences…at least most of them because I think I am missing quite a few ticket stubs.

The 80’s

Our journey begins back around 1983.  I was only 14 years old.  My parents finally agreed to let me go to a concert, but I had to go with my sister…REALLY!!!  Actually, it was okay.  My sister and I have been to many concerts together and even went to one 2 years ago some 3o+ years later.
