Friday New Releases – May 1st

We are now in May, I’m still working from home and we are still on the social distancing kick…which is all a good thing until this thing gets better.  The really good news is there are a lot of releases this week…ok, not really.  A month or so ago, that would’ve been true.  There have been at least 10 that were on the list that are now moved until later in the year.  That is too bad.  As a result, I hope there is something here for you.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what you are looking forward to hearing or what I missed.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.  Stay Safe!!

  • 910zmOoSuSL._SX522_  Mike Tramp – Second Time Around – (Deko / Target Records):  Mike Tramp has been putting out the albums lately.  That voice sounds aged and wiser and ever since White Lion and Freak of Nature, I have followed his career so why would I not throw this on for good measure.

  • 71huLNVJSAL._SX522_  Jack Russell’s Great White – Once Bitten Acoustic Bytes – (Deadline Music / Cleopatra):  I don’t know if I am interested in this because I think it is going to be good or that I think it is going to be really bad.  Either way, I might try and sit through this.  His last album was pretty good, but it still isn’t the same as it used to be.  We will leave judgment until I hear it all.

Friday New Releases – March 17th

Happy Friday.  What are you in the mood to hear today?  You have a lot of variety and can listen to blues, rock, christian worship, classical pop, pop, alternative, metal and movie scores.  There are even a couple of 80’s bands back (Depeche Mode and Greg Kihn).  Whatever you like, let me know what floats your boat.  Mine are highlighted in Blue.

  • 170x170bb-22  Gary Clark Jr. – Live North America 2016 – (Warner Bros. Records):  This is probably the best one on the list.  Gary Clark Jr. live doesn’t get much better. If you haven’t heard him before, you are missing out.  He is a helluva a guitar player. He is blues, rock, soul, r&b and blends it all nicely together.  Listen to the video below and you will be like..DAMN!!! This man is awesome!!.

  • 170x170bb-3  Elevation Worship – There is a Cloud – (Elevation Church):  This church is just down the road from us and they do a great live show every year at the Spectrum Center that always sells out.  We have seen them several times at church (when we go) and they are amazing.  If you like Worship music, this is one of the better, more talented groups out there.

Elevation Worship – Here as in Heaven – Album Spotlight

I am going to change things up a bit with something not Pop or Rock.  I am a fan of Christian music, mostly of the rock nature. I have never been much for worship music.  Of course, I have some from artists like Kutless, Chris Tomlin and Jeremy Camp.  It was just never my go to choice.

I have the great pleasure of living in Charlotte and not far from Elevation Church’s main campus in Blakeney.  It was there I  discovered Elevation Worship.  Ok, I didn’t discover them, I was introduced to their music. The energy they bring to each church service is amazing and I found them to be extremely talented musicians and singers.

Last year, they sold out Time Warner Arena here in Charlotte and recorded the live album “Here as in Heaven”.  I am quite bummed that my family  and I were not able to attend, but thankfully there is an album to enjoy.  The album came out in February of this year and I have enjoyed every minute of that album.
