Friday New Releases – February 17th

Happy Friday.  Welcome to the end of another long work week and hopefully something released today will fit your needs.  Not much out this week, but a couple to look forward to for me.  They are highlighted in Blue.

  • 170x170bb-78  Alison Krauss – Windy City – (Hokker, Inc):  Hard to believe that this is her first solo release in 18 years.  Sadly it is only a covers album and not original material.  I will take what I can get from this bluegrass/country superstar.

  • 170x170bb-28  Ryan Adams – Prisoner – (PaxAmericana Recordings):  Ryan hasn’t waited 18 years for his next solo release.  He has only waited about 3 years.  For him, this is his 16th studio album.  That seems crazy, but he does put out a lot of albums as he averages about 1 album a year.  I am sure it will be interesting as his usually are.

There are good songs, great songs, rock songs, dance songs, pop songs and some songs that are just too damn cool.  This list is what I felt were the really cool songs of the decade.  Cool could be the subject matter or the overall sound of the song and of course it is very subjective.  I wasn’t very cool back in the day so my definition of cool might not equal yours.  Come to think of it…I am not cool now.  Oh well, I hope you enjoy the playlist.
