JOHN MELLENCAMP
OTHER PEOPLE'S STUFF
$13.99(sale priced)
Although the titles something of a misnomer, it does accurately sum up the vintage sentiments that give this album its common bond. Still, its a viable concept, especially given Mellencamps reputable stance as a heartland hero and blue collar troubadour. That is, of course, the tack hes taken for the better part of his career, ever since he shed the posturing of his initial incarnation as Johnny Cougar, rock star and raconteur. Its an anthology of sorts enveloped within the protest motif. Thats a fair assessment, especially since some of the songs here are drawn from outside sources. The lively roadway narrative Dark as a Dungeon was culled from a National Geographic special. The rugged blues and bluster of Eyes on the Prize was Mellencamps contribution to a White House gathering during the Obama era celebrating the Civil Rights movement. Gambling Bar Room Blues and I Dont Know Why I Love You were culled from tributes to Jimmie Rodgers and Stevie Wonder, respectively.
VAN MORRISON
PROPHET SPEAKS
$10.99(sale priced)
Van Morrison has announced his new album, The Prophet Speaks. His 40th studio album. On his new effort, Morrison offers six new originals alongside his reinterpretations of classics. Sam Cookes Laughin and Clownin, John Lee Hookers Dimples, Solomon Burkes Gotta Get You Off My Mind and Willie Dixons I Love the Life I Live are among the eight songs he covers. It was important for me to get back to recording new music as well as doing some of the blues material that has inspired me from the beginning, Morrison said in a statement. Writing songs and making music is what I do, and working with great musicians makes it all the more enjoyable. The set continues the singers recent prolific run of albums blending covers with original material. In April, he released Youre Driving Me Crazy, on which he collaborated with Hammond organ/trumpet virtuoso Joey DeFrancesco. The pair team up again for The Prophet Speaks. It also features Morrisons band, which includes guitarist Dan Wilson, drummer Michael Ode and tenor saxophonist Troy Roberts. In 2017, he released the blues-focused Roll With the Punches and jazz-based Versatile.
NEIL YOUNG
SONGS FOR JUDY
$12.99(sale priced)
Neil Young announced his plan to release Songs for Judy, a live album drawn from his November 1976 U.S. tour. The 22-song LP includes solo acoustic performances of all-time classics like Heart of Gold, After the Gold Rush and The Needle and the Damage Done, along with a number of rarer selections, including one song, No One Seems to Know, that has not appeared on any previous official release. Young spent the majority of 1976 on the road with Crazy Horse or on the ill-fated Stills-Young Band tour, which he famously dropped out of midway through that summer. He also found time to make Hitchhiker, the lost solo acoustic studio album that he recorded in August 1976 three months before the shows documented on Songs for Judy but kept in the vault until last fall. At the November 1976 shows featured on Songs for Judy, Young performed a solo acoustic opening set before returning to the stage for a harder-rocking performance with Crazy Horse. These shows have been widely praised and discussed by Young fans for years, but this is their first official release.Young released Campaigner, the first single from the album, on Friday. Recorded at his November 22nd, 1976 show at Bostons Music Hall, its a pristine performance of the politically puzzling ballad (Even Richard Nixon has got soul), which would see its first release the following year on his three-LP greatest hits set Decade.
EARL SWEATSHIRT
SOME RAP SONGS
$12.99(sale priced)
If the title of Earl Sweatshirts long-awaited third studio album feels like hes underselling it, its because he is. Hes intentionally reducing the magnitude of an offering from one of the most lauded artists of the decade from a grand gesture to a gift with no wrapping. The rapper born Thebe Kgositsiles worst enemy isand has always beenour collective expectations and the entitlement that comes along with them. Its always been Earl versus the world. Fame found him at the age of 16, making him an internet sensation, then a meme, then an enigma, and finally, an icon. For an introverted kid who knew he could rap but was reluctant to accept the exposure and invasions of privacy that came with being a bona fide pop culture phenomenon, its been an uncomfortable evolution. Voracious fans threatened to consume not just his music but his personal life too. That same entitlement caused the FREE EARL campaign to mutate from eager appreciation to scary obsession and stoked fans demand for music during the three years since his last albumeven as he was mourning his fathers death earlier this year. Rather than bask in the attention, he recoiled from it, setting himself apart from peers who maintain relevance through carefully strategized ubiquity. As he receded from the spotlight, his mystique grewas did fans desire to hear him to do what he does best.
