Happy Friday!! Another week gone by and only 6 more Fridays until Christmas!! Can you believe it? There are a bunch here for you to decide if you want to add some things to your Christmas List. You have a wide variety so hopefully there is something for everyone. I only have a couple I am really interested and they are in Bold. Let me know what you want to hear or maybe what we may have missed so everyone knows about it that stops by and checks out the list. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and exciting weekend.
Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak) – An Evening with Silk Sonic – (Aftermath Entertainment / Atlantic): First up for me is Silk Sonic. You get the both Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak in one band and let me tell you it doesn’t get any smoother than that!! I really loved the first single “Leave the Door Open” and it has made me so excited for this release!! This will get my weekend going.
Taylor Swift – Red (Taylor’s Version) – (Republic Records): Say what you will about her, but she did shake up radio and music in general. Hell, she is one of the only people out there that actually sells massive amounts of physical product. My kids and I decided we would collect these “Taylor Versions” of her re-recordings as there is an abundance of music from the Vault to come with each release. This is her 2nd re-recording and actually a favorite album of the family so we will be grabbing this one.
Only two more weeks of new releases worth mentioning before Christmas, including this one. This is one of those rare weeks where there is nothing I am really interested in and that is probably a good thing because I need to catch up on everything I have picked up over the last couple months. Wait a minute…there is now one that only announced yesterday so might be one I am interested in. Take a look through the list and see if there is anything for you. Let me know what you want to hear and what I may have missed. Hopefully something will get those ears burning! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
Taylor Swift – Evermore – (Taylor Swift): SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!! Taylor announced only yesterday that she was dropping a new album today!!! That is two albums in 4 months!! Someone has been busy!!! I might check this out as the last Folklore was quite interesting and a nice departure from her normal music.
Foster the People – In the Darkest of Nights, Let the Birds Sing E.P. – (Foster the People)
Happy Friday. I am in a very busy season at work and I need some new music to listen to so I can make it through this time. Sadly, not a whole lot I am interested in this week. I hope there is something for you. Mine are highlighted in Blue…
Mr. Big – Defying Gravity – (Frontiers Records Srl): Can’t wait to play this one. Mr. Big has been back in a “big” way since 2010. Now they do take 3-4 years between records, but it is better than the 9 years prior to that. Either way, it is just great to get new music from this very talented band of musicians. When ever you can have Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheenan, Pat Torpey and Eric Martin together, you have to be excited. The opening bass line of this song is unbelievable and has definitely got me excited about this one.
Europe – The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show: Live at the Roundhouse – (Hell & Back Recordings): Say it isn’t so…30 years…REALLY!! Damn! I am getting old. If you don’t know, Europe has been doing their thing for all this time and I am happy to see a live album to celebrate The Final Countdown. This will definitely get a few spins. I didn’t see a video for this so might as well show “The Final Countdown”.
