We already to the close of the first month of 2023 and it has been somewhat lackluster at times with new releases, but this week we have over 40 new releases for you so there should be something for you. I don’t really have any I am running out and buying, but maybe I’ll stream the Steve Vai one, but outside of that probably not. The Dokken release would be great if it had some new or unreleased songs on it, otherwise I have those albums already. Let me know what you want to hear this week or if we missed any releases. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.
Steve Vai – Vai / Gash – (Favored Nations / Mascot Label Group)
Elle King – Come Get Your Wife – (RCA Records / Sony Music)
It is time for the Top 20 Songs of 2018. My previous post, if you missed it, was the Top 20 Rock Songs of 2018. Go check it out by clicking on the link. These 20 songs are all genres other than rock. Some were popular and chart toppers and others were not. They are my favorites, that touched me in some way so don’t expect any indie bands or anything trendy. If you want that go to one of the cool sites out there, this ain’t it.
#20 – “Space Cowboy” – Kacey Musgrave off the album ‘Golden Hour’: I am not huge into today’s country music, but Kacey is different. She is doing things her way, pushing boundaries and sounds. I love her voice and her songs are always interesting and worth diving into lyrically. This one is no different. It is more pop than country, but still good.
#19 – “Say Hello” – Rhett Walker Band off the ‘Rhett Walker Band E.P.’: Rhett’s a Christian rock band and this song comes off with the power of Church Revival and gets you up out of you chair, hands in the air and give it your all. If you want to get moving, this will do it.
Welcome to a HUGE Friday!!! There releases are massive and numerous. What more could you ask for. This is the first time in a very long time where I have 3 releases that are on order for the same day. I am going to love the mail man this week. The albums I am interested in are highlighted in Blue and the first 3 are the ones on order. Let me know what you looking forward to hearing and which ones I might have missed. Enjoy and have a great musical weekend! I know I will!!!
Greta Van Fleet – Anthem of the Peaceful Man – (Republic Records): These young lads are constantly getting compared to Led Zeppelin and you know what? Who cares. Zeppelin isn’t putting out any new music so I am going to enjoy this. At least the young generation is still making Rock & Roll. This is their first Full Length studio album and I get wait to unwrap the vinyl.
Whitesnake – Unzipped – (Rhino Records): 5 CDs and 1 DVD of Whitesnake Unplugged. 20 years worth of music including Starkers in Tokyo and Starkers in Warsaw, Paris, Germany and so much music. I can’t wait for this one either. It is going to be non-stop music.
Most of the rock albums I have are sung by men. However, there are a lot of great rock songs and albums with female lead singers. I was sitting here listening to Janis Joplin and started thinking about who were some of my favorite female lead singers that could rock it out. Below is my list of my favorite Women that Rock.
