Friday New Releases – July 17, 2020

Happy Friday!  It is about time it got here, I need this weekend!  We have a handful of releases this week and some I am actually interested in hearing and I will highlight those in Blue as usual.  We have a variety of styles this week to choose from so hopefully there will be something for you. Let me know what you want to hear and what release I might have missed as it does happen.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  • 71-GfFCjBzL._SS500_  Bush – The Kingdom – (Zuma Rock / BMG):  Gavin Rossdale and the boys are back.  Bush is hit or miss for me, but they’ve hit enough that I try out their releases and I will this one.  Here’s hoping for some solid rock this time around.

  • 71IgljhNZAL._SX522_  Pretenders – Hate for Sale – (Chrissie Hynde / BMG):  Chrissie Hynde and boys are back (that phrase sounds familiar…oh yeah…see Bush above).  I have always loved her voice and the punk/new wave style. She is a legend and that is why she will get a spin.

Friday New Releases – June 1st

Welcome to the First Friday of June and better yet, the first day of June.  We are now getting into the Summer months and it is going to be Hot with new releases and temperatures.  There only a couple I am interested in the one will require a lot of dough.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  What interests you?  Leave me a comment.

  • 614aKIFCXNL._AC_US436_QL65_.jpg  Def Leppard – The Collection: Volume One – (Mercury):  Okay, Def Leppard is re-releasing Four Collections of all their albums plus some bonus material.  I will just quote from Amazon exactly…

This initial volume of the band’s complete recorded output comes in a limited-edition 180-gram heavyweight vinyl box set, featuring Def Leppard’s first four studio albums — along with some choice bonus live and studio material — all spread across 8LPs. The Volume One collection contains all of Def Leppard’s iconic 1980s recordings – On Through The Night, High ‘N’ Dry, Pyromania and Hysteria – with reproductions of the original packaging. Furthermore, this collection includes a replica 7-inch single of the band’s original independent EP, the self-titled The Def Leppard E.P. The Volume One collection also houses bonus material including Live At The LA Forum 1983, originally released as a bonus disc in the deluxe CD version of Pyromania, making this the first-ever vinyl offering of the complete show. This 2LP version comes with a new sleeve and inner bags. The box set also includes Rarities Volume 1 which has been specially compiled by Joe Elliott, containing rare B-sides and recordings from Def Leppard’s early years, all in a newly commissioned sleeve. Each album in the Volume One box set was mastered by longtime band producer/soundmaster Ronan McHugh and frontman/vocalist Joe Elliott at Joe’s Garage in Dublin, Ireland, and cut by Greg Moore. Housed in rigid boxes, the Volume One collection also contains a hardback book with rare photos by longstanding band confidant Ross Halfin and liner notes by Classic Rock’s Paul Elliott. Def Leppard bandmembers Joe Elliott, bassist Rick Savage, drummer Rick Allen, and guitarist Phil Collen have all also contributed their personal introductions to the collection.
