BEATLES
SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND (ANIV)
$13.99(sale priced)
If you were alive and reasonably conscious in the Spring of 1967 you might have heard a prematurely released, unauthorized version of a brand new Beatles album on the radio before it quickly disappeared for another 6 weeks. It was a tantalizing treat. At the same time, a new single sounding suspiciously like the Beatles hit the FM airwaves but the record was a red herring: New York Mining Disaster by the BeeGees, who were then new to America and something of a Beatles sound-alike. The album was real, however, and when it was finally released for good at the end of May it literally changed the world in ways that are inconceivable today.
GRATEFUL DEAD
LONG STRANGE TRIP SOUNDTRACK
$16.99(sale priced)
All versions of the Long Strange Trip soundtrack include previously unreleased material. The soundtrack mixes studio recordings with live performances. The 2-CD version features unreleased performances such as Dark Star from February 14, 1970 at The Fillmore East in New York City and the Brent Mydland-led Dear Mr. Fantasy > Hey Jude jam from July 2, 1989 at Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Amazon-exclusive version adds nine tracks including a nearly 20-minute Eyes Of The World from August 6, 1974 at Roosevelt Stadium in New Jersey, a Stella Blue from July 5, 1981 in Oklahoma City and Days Between from October 18, 1994 at Madison Square Garden. One portion of the film focuses on the Grateful Deads famed Europe 72 Tour. The tour came to a close 45 years ago today at the Lyceum Theatre in London which turned out to be Ron Pigpen McKernans final show. Without spoiling anything from the movie, the Morning Dew from London plays a prominent role. Listen to the London 72 Morning Dew and the rest of the Long Strange Trip soundtrack:
JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE
KIDS IN THE STREET
$11.99(sale priced)
First of all, let us congratulate Justin Townes Earle for being one of the first songwriters to celebrate the humble but reliable Toyota in song. Sure, the Cadillac may have a more noble musical legacy, but in 'Champagne Corolla,' on 2017's Kids in the Street, Earle is eager to explain why the car (and especially the woman driving it) is worth a second glance. Second, let's note that 'Champagne Corolla' is one of the very best rockers Earle has offered to date; the singer/songwriter is traditionally more comfortable with a subtle attack in the studio, but here he opens the album with a stompin' exercise in New Orleans-influenced R&B, and it connects solidly. As it turns out, rockers are in the minority on Kids in the Street, but 'Short Haired Woman' and '15-25' show he can cut the same sort of groove when he feels like it, and Paul Niehaus' guitar and Scott Seiver's drumming do wonders to make these songs move. On much of the rest of Kids in the Street, Earle is in more subdued form, with a lower volume and more careful tempi, but this material truly confirms that he just keeps growing and improving as a songwriter.
DANZIG
BLACK LADEN CROWN
$13.99(sale priced)
Still, his strength is his nuanced voice, his baritone and tenor as sultry as Jim Morrisons and his charisma informed by Johnny Cash and Elvis. On Black Laden Crown, his collaborators are mostly longtime henchmen, including Tommy Victor of the band Prong on lead and bass guitars and drummer Johnny Kelly from Type O Negative. But its that voice mournful, mysterious and powerful that kicks off the surprisingly laborious six-minute title track and makes it memorable...Ponderous musicality can be both mesmerizing and boring, and Black Laden Crown touches on both extremes, with The Witching Hour (apparently when the clock strikes 18, its nothing like youve ever seen) starting out nearly hypnotic, but at six-minutes long, winding up dull. And where Devil on Hwy 9 has a raging mid-tempo metal opening, the rockin road trip might have fared better if done by Rob Zombie, with the songs approach needing a dose of kicky high energy or kitsch.
