Welcome to October and there is abundance to keep you busy this month. Maybe not as much as weeks past but still a broad range of releases that there is bound to be something up your alley. I have quite a few I want to hear including some Super Deluxe Editions of older albums as there are a ton of those almost every week now. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear and even what I may have missed that way everyone will know. Thanks so much for the continued support, stopping by and commenting. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
KK’s Priest – Sermons of the Sinner – (EX1 Records): K.K. Downing, formerly of Judas Priest brings his own brand of rock with KK’s Priest and I love that he is playing off his former band because why shouldn’t he capitalize on that success. And what is even better is that is Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens on vocals. I have purposely not listened to anything yet as I want to check this out all in one sitting.
Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett – Love For Sale – (Columbia / Sony / Interscope): Lady Gaga…Yes Please…Tony Bennet…Absolutely Yes Please!! In what might very well be Tony’s last recordings how could you not want to hear this. The man is a legend and throw in Gaga and the two together are pure gold!!
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!!
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.
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.
My Sunday Song #20 is “I Am” by JoJo. These last 10 songs were inspirational Non-Christian songs after the first 10 were Christian based. This is the final song in that series. Next Sunday will be a special Christmas song and than after that, who knows what I will do for the next 10 songs.
Now on to “I Am”. I took my family to the 95.1FM Kissmas Concert and the opening act was JoJo. She talked about how she used to talk about herself very negatively and she needed to stop. Instead of saying something negative, you should start saying positive things about yourself no matter how small it is. Such as “I am smart”, “I am beautiful”. I think it is a great idea and I hope my girls listen to that advice.
BTW…she sounded amazing at the concert. I wasn’t familiar with her music, but was impressed. She was one of the very few acts that were worth seeing. I will save that discussion for another post.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we have as a family. Enjoy!
