Greta Van Fleet – From the Fires – Album Review

What were you doing when you were around 18-21 years old?  I am sure you weren’t taking the world by storm like the boys in Greta Van Fleet.  I can’t remember the last time a band was getting so much buzz from critics and from music fans alike.  Especially a Rock & Roll Band!!

They are being hailed as the second coming of Rock and are completely ripping off Led Zeppelin in the process…but in a very good way.  Their Zeppelin stylings are showcased  by the stunning “Highway Tunes” and equally amazing “Safari Song” and “Flower Power”.  The band has an old soul which shines on the Sam Cooke cover “A Change is Gonna Come” and the Fairport Convention cover “Meet on the Ledge”.

Friday New Releases – November 10th

Welcome to another Friday New Releases and this week is a biggie.  Why?  Because Taylor is finally releasing her long awaited new album.  I put it at the top because it will be the most played album in our house (I have two girls that love her).  But don’t fret!  There is plenty of other releases for everyone.  I have a ton of rock records that I can’t wait to spin and they are highlighted in Blue.  I hope there is something for you.  Enjoy!

  • 61qd3pEQ1nL._AC_US218_  Sweet & Lynch – Unified – (Frontiers Records):  Now here is where I will begin.  Michael Sweet & George Lynch were brought together by Frontiers Records as one of their special projects and usually they end up as a one time deal, thankfully, this one is not. We are now given a second release and they are touring.  Maybe this will last a little while.  I always need more rock & roll.
