Friday New Releases – September 20th

Another great Friday with another huge selection of releases.  However, the selections aren’t “huge’, if you know what I mean.  There a handful I am interested in hearing, but nothing I am running out and buying.  Streaming for me on these…unless one is so good it warrants a purchase.  I wonder if I have gotten through all the ones from last week (I am writing this two weeks out)  but I doubt it.  Anyway, my choices are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what you want to hear or if there is anything I missed.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

  • 51o1xhoeznl-_ac_us160_  Sting – 57th & 9th – (A&M):  I haven’t listened to much of his stuff lately, but figured with the limited releases this week I would give it a try.  No big expectations, so hopefully won’t be disappointed.

  • 61xdukofeil-_ac_us160_  Rik Emmett & RESolution 9 – RES9 – (Provogue):  The former Triumph singer is back.  I was so pumped when I heard he was putting out new material.  He even teams up with former bandmates…Cool!!  However, early comments don’t sound promising.  Doesn’t matter…he has earned enough cred for me to give it a spin.
