Another Friday and thankfully another weekend! To make that weekend even more enjoyable, we have brought you another batch of releases. With over 40 to choose from, there is bound to be something to your liking. If not, sorry…I did my best!! I only have one I am interested in and if you follow this site, it will be obvious which one that is…plus it is marked in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or what may have been left off the list so everyone knows to expect it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
Kiss – Off the Sounboard: Donington 1996 – (Universal Music / Simstan Music): We are now on the third edition of the Off the Soundboard Series and that is two for this year. Rumor has it one more will be coming. This one is Reunion Era Kiss so I am excited about this one as the original 4 are back!!
We are now in June and things are heating up, but for me not so much on the New Releases. There is only one I’m excited about and one I am curious. They are both marked in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in listening to this week or what we may have missed. As there are over 40 albums on here, but we do miss some from now and again. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Crobot – Feel This – (Mascot Label Group): Crobot is now on the fourth full length album and this Pennsylvania hard rock/funk rock band knows how to bring it. If you like it heavy and a little funky, five these guys a chance. I’m glad I did.
The Fixx – Every Five Seconds – (JARC Ltd): It has been 10 years since their last studio album. I guess one thing lead to another and they didn’t have time. But thankfully Cy Curnin and team are back. I don’t know what to expect, but I am eager to give it a try.
We have another big week of releases for you on our Friday New Release post. And let me tell you, there is a plethora of styles, genres and sounds which means there will be something for you. You have my word or I’ll give you your money back…now of course you didn’t pay any money to be here so there is nothing to pay you back, but you get what I mean. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Kissin’ Dynamite – Not the End of the Road – (Napalm Records): This German band is now on their seventh album and I would say these guys are on to something as they keep getting better. Their 80’s stadium rock sound full of hooks and that anthem sound yet till sound modern. I can’t wait to hear what they have to offer this time around.
John Mellencamp – Strictly A One-Eyed Jack – (Republic Records): Can you believe this is his 25th album? Insane right. I hadn’t listened to him in awhile so now I think it is time to check him out again and see if there is still life left in this pirate.
This is another big week as I have over 25 new releases for today. Unfortunately for me, there is only a couple I’m really interested in and they are marked in Blue. There has to be something you can find in this list that you want to spin. Let me know what tickles your funny bone. Also, let me know what new releases I missed because believe it or not, it has been known to happen. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
Alice Cooper – Detroit Stories – (Edel Germany / Earmusic): Alice is still going strong at around 73 years of age. This time around the album actually features all surviving members of the Original Alice Cooper Band. How cool is that!! I am sure this is going to be another guitar heavy masterpiece that only Alice can give us.
The Black Crowes – Shake Your Money Maker (30th Anniversary Deluxe) – (Universal Music / American Music) – DIGITAL ONLY – The Deluxe Edition is not until March 19th on CD & Vinyl…This is the only other I am eager to hear. This is loaded full of unreleased material. The only bad news is that the CD & Vinyl Deluxed Editions aren’t coming for another month. I think I can make it!! It will be difficult, but I will survive.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend. I should be sitting on a tropical beach in Jamaica about now soaking up the sun and the alcohol with my lovely bride of 15 years. We are two weeks past our anniversary, but we finally got away just the two of us.
The bad news is I am missing so many great releases this weekend, but I don’t really care. I will listen when I get back. One release that is actually quite fitting is the Train release. That is “our band” as I have mentioned many times on this blog. That will the one I definitely check out this week. I have highlighted in Blue all the ones I am interested in and will find some time to give a listen.
Train – A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat – (Sunken Forest/Columbia): So happy for another Train album. I have heard a couple songs so far and they have been okay. They seem to be rehashing the same formula with every album and song now and loosing some of the magic (reminds of what Bon Jovi is going through). I am hoping the rest of the album is better otherwise, they might loose their place as my wife and I’s favorite band.
