My Sunday Song – “Until I Wake Up” by Dishwalla & JR Richards

My Sunday Song #49 is “Until I Wake Up” by Dishwalla.  Well, it was Dishwalla originally where I discovered the song and really liked it.  Years later, when JR Richards, the lead singer of Dishwalla, left the band he re-recorded the song and I discovered it again.  This time it stuck with me and I can’t stop listening to it.

The album was originally off the Dishwalla album from 1998 called ‘And You Think You Know What Life Is About”.  Most recently, JR Richards released it on his 2016 album ‘Stripped” which is of course acoustic songs of his work with Dishwalla.  It also includes their big hit “Counting Blue Cars”.  Well worth a listen.

Friday New Releases – May 5th

The first Friday in May is upon us and there is not a ton of stuff out this week.  There are a few artists I am interested in and a bunch I am not.  Hopefully you can find something you will like.  The ones I will listen to first are highlighted in Blue (as usual).

  • 170x170bb-15  Chris Stapleton – From A Room: Volume 1 – (Mercury Records):  In only his 2nd release, Chris Stapleton seems like he has been around awhile…which he has but not as a solo artist.  After the huge success of his debut album I am really interested in hearing what he now brings us.  I actually hope it is more of the same as his first album was spectacular.  If the first single is any indication of what is to come, then we are in for a treat.

  • 170x170bb-8  Blondie – Pollinator – (Noble ID, LLC):  Debby Harry and group are back again with another new release.  This is their 11th studio album and honestly i am surprised (and glad) that they are still putting out albums.  There are still 3 original members including Debby so I guess that still makes a complete enough band to make them still worth hearing and not a Debby Harry solo album.
