Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 My Nightmare (September 13, 2011)

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61oEKoKgmPL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

35 freaking years? Good Lord

Quote
Alice Cooper's widely anticipated new album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare, recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original multi-platinum "Welcome To My Nightmare" album in 1975, picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.

The original release is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and pioneering U.S. TV special, and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television, film and much more. More than 35 years later, Alice and Ezrin have resurrected the horror and humor for a new generation.

Rush Unveil "TIME MACHINE 2011: LIVE IN CLEVELAND"; 2-CD Set Recorded During Legendary Trio's Recent World Tour; Band Simultaneously Release Live Version of Landmark Album "MOVING PICTURES" on Vinyl;

Quote
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Legendary rock band Rush have announced details for the first offerings through their recently announced partnership with Roadrunner Records. On November 8, Anthem/Roadrunner will simultaneously release a two-disc live album entitled "TIME MACHINE 2011: LIVE IN CLEVELAND" as well as "MOVING PICTURES: LIVE 2011" on vinyl and digital formats.

Captured in April at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena during the renowned trio's extensive Time Machine World Tour, "TIME MACHINE 2011: LIVE IN CLEVELAND" marks the band's first live album recorded at a U.S. show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favorites, and a glimpse into Rush's forthcoming 20th studio album "CLOCKWORK ANGELS." As a centerpiece for the concerts, the band performed their landmark album "MOVING PICTURES" in its entirety -- a first in the band's long and illustrious career. Rave reviews of the tour included The Hollywood Reporter's declaration that "the current Time Machine jaunt is nothing less than a must see... for nearly three hours, with intermission, Rush proved why it remains among rock's elite live acts." Full track listing for "TIME MACHINE 2011: LIVE IN CLEVELAND" attached below.

"MOVING PICTURES: LIVE 2011" marks the first live recording of the band's most successful album to date. Originally released in 1981, this year marks the 30th anniversary of "MOVING PICTURES," which features some of Rush's most well-known songs like "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," and "YYZ."

In related news, Rush is also releasing "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" on BluRay and DVD formats on November 8 via Rounder Records in the U.S. and Eagle Rock Entertainment abroad. VH1 will be airing a 2-hour concert culled from the footage as part of their annual "Rushashana" program on September 29. This fall, Rush will be returning to the studio to resume work on their highly anticipated 20th studio album, "CLOCKWORK ANGELS" due out in 2012.

With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush -- Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart -- is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular. The RIAA has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Rush's vast catalog includes such classics as 1974's self-titled debut, 1976's "2112," 1981's "MOVING PICTURES," 1996's "TEST FOR ECHO," and 2002's "VAPOR TRAILS." Rush's most recent studio album, 2007's "SNAKES & ARROWS," debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, marking the band's highest chart debut since 1993, as well as their eleventh top 10 album in the U.S. In addition to their commercial success, Rush has also been recognized with a number of Juno Awards and multiple Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" at this year's gala event. Enjoying a recent pop culture renaissance, Rush made a rare television appearance -- their first in over 30 years -- on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" and a memorable cameo in the film "I Love You, Man." A career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature summed up the renowned rock trio's continuing artistic vitality by observing, "It's true that Rush doesn't mean today what it did in '76 or even '96. It may mean more."

Kansas - Complete Albums Collection (D2c) [Import] : November 1, 2011

If my calculations are right, it's about $4.80 an album
Quote
Kansas - The Classic Albums Collection 1974-1983

Albums included:
Kansas (1974)
Song For America (1975)
Masque (1975)
Leftoverture (1976)
Point of Know Return (1977)
Two for the Show (2 CDs) (1978)
Monolith (1979)
Audio-Visions (1980)
Vinyl Confessions (1982)
Drastic Measures (1983)

The definitive box set documenting the classic recordings of Kansas, the trail-blazing American progressive rock band, the collection contains remastered CD editions of the band's ten albums released on the Kirshner and CBS Records labels between 1974 and 1983, with live and rare bonus tracks from the period. The Two for the Show live collection has been expanded to include bonus performances not included on the album's original vinyl release.

With a sound as expansive as the band's home state, Kansas scored big in the 1970s by applying an all-American heartland sensibility to the influence of such British progressive-rock bands as Yes, Genesis and King Crimson. Merging complex, classically-influenced arrangements with a boogie rock punch, Kansas built a distinctive, commanding sound that propelled the band to platinum-selling arena-filling stardom. Such timeless tunes as "Dust in the Wind," "Carry on Wayward Son" and "Point of Know Return" became radio staples and classic rock anthems emblematic of an era.

By the time Kansas released its eponymous debut album in 1974, the band had already developed a powerful live act and built a solid regional following. Their subsequent releases
Song for America and Masque expanded the group's audience, but it was 1976's multi-platinum Leftoverture that propelled Kansas into the commercial big leagues. Point of Know Return continued the band's ascent, and the 1978 live album Two for the Show captured Kansas at the peak of its performing powers. Monolith and Audio-Visions showed Kansas continuing to refine its sound, while 1982's Vinyl Confessions produced one of the band's biggest singles, "Play the Game Tonight." 1983's Drastic Measures introduced Kansas to the MTV generation via the video/radio hit "Fight Fire with Fire."

Michael Jackson - Immortal (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44765357/ns/today-entertainment/)

A posthumous Michael Jackson album entitled "Immortal" is to be released in November featuring newly discovered outtakes and redesigned versions of some of his biggest hits, Epic Records said on Monday.

The album, released in conjunction with Jackson's official estate, will feature an alternative version of the Jackson 5 hit "ABC," medleys of Jackson's chart-topping singles, mashups, and a choir recorded for "They Don't Really Care About Us."

"Immortal" is the soundtrack for a new Cirque du Soleil extravaganza on Michael Jackson's music and life, "The Immortal World Tour," which had its world premiere on Sunday ahead of a 10-month tour around North America.

Michael Jackson - Immortal (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44765357/ns/today-entertainment/)


I'm all for releasing newly discovered music. But what I don't like are "reinterpretations" or mash-ups because that to me is just a way to pad out a disc and save other "discovered" music for additional CD's down the road, which means they get to charge you twice for what could have gone on the previous release.

This is really the only way the record companies can "make" money by offering stuff that you can' download. It's kind of going back to that mentality during the 70's of offering fans something they couldn't get anywhere else, which is something that KISS did with great fanfare back in the day. All I need is John Denver rub-on tattoo's included for me to buy his Mega-Set. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_biggrin.gif)

Hmmmmm. I gotta give Gene and Paul credit where credit is due. I think even they knew that a Volume 4 set featuring just stuff with Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer would not sell as well. So, what they have done is gone back to the vault from all incarnations of the band to give it a good variety of material to satisfy those long time KISS fans. Ahem. Still remains to be seen what the bonus disk will be at Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. Not sure about Target getting one yet. To be released late November, just in time for Xmas.

Amy Winehouse - Lioness: Hidden Treasures Dec 6

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51%2BPSX2-OAL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

Quote
2011 posthumous release, a collection of previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics, as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions. Following her tragic passing, some of the producers and musicians who worked closely with Amy Winehouse, among them Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, spent time listening over the many recordings that Amy had made, before, during, and after the release of Frank and Back To Black. It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice. It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting treatment to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy the friend.

Paul McCartney - Kisses on the Bottom

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51o67g5ZKQL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

Paul McCartney lost me many moons ago. Besides his Wings and very early solo releases, I don’t think he’s done anything relevant worth listening too. I at times check in to see what he’s been up too but they always fall flat… even stuff like his classic rockers Run Devil Run.

Quote
While many a musician is often asked about the tunes that have influenced their songwriting, it is not a question Paul McCartney ordinarily gets to answer - until now. Paul is about to offer a glimpse into "the songs which inspired the songs" with the upcoming release of a brand new album of those standards he grew up listening to in his childhood-plus two brand new McCartney compositions. With the help of Grammyr Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band-as well as guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, McCartney's new album is a deeply personal journey through classic American compositions that, in some cases, a young Paul first heard his father perform on piano at home. As authentic and daring a musical statement as he could make, this is the album Paul has been thinking about making for more than 20 years - and probably the last thing his fans are expecting. "In the end it was 'Look, if I don't do it now, I'll never do it'," he says. In short, Paul believes it is about time "the songs me and John based quite a few of our things on" received the recognition they deserve. Moreover, the record also features a couple of new original McCartney compositions in the spirit of those classics. "When I kind of got into songwriting, I realized how well structured these songs were and I think I took a lot of my lessons from them," Paul explains. "I always thought artists like Fred Astaire were very cool. Writers like Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, all of those guys - I just thought the songs were magical. And then, as I got to be a songwriter I thought it's beautiful, the way they made those songs." Determined to approach the record in a new and unique manner, Paul enlisted the help of LiPuma and Krall and her band-who delivered ultra-high quality musicianship and were completely in tune with Paul's restraint and feel for the music. In the studio, the recording of this album was also a new challenge for Paul who, for the first time ever, performed exclusively in the vocal booth without an instrument - no guitar, no bass, no piano - which led to a vocal performance like no other in his career. He adds, "It was very spontaneous, kind of organic, which then reminded me of the way we'd work with The Beatles. We'd bring a song in, kick it around, when we found a way to do it we'd say 'Okay, let's do a take now' and by the time everyone kind of had an idea of what they were doing, we'd learnt the song. So that's what we did, we did the take live in the studio." "It was important for me to keep away from the more obvious song choices so, many of the classic standards will be unfamiliar to some people. I hope they are in for a pleasant surprise." The album was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, New York and London throughout 2011. It also features guest musicians Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, respectively, on the original compositions "My Valentine" and "Only Our Hearts."

I really can appreciate Frey's solo stuff. It's just so well written and produced. Saying that, I'm not sure about him doing a standards set like Rod Stewart. I'm hopeful and it will blow me away.

Quote
As a celebration of the 30th anniversary of their debut album, DAWN PATROL, and hot on the heels of their 10th studio album, SOMEWHERE IN CALIFORNIA, Night Ranger will release a very special newly-recorded live greatest hits CD/DVD package: 24 STRINGS & A DRUMMER LIVE & ACOUSTIC via Frontiers Records.

The album and DVD were recorded live in an intimate, all-acoustic setting with a select number of fans at TRI Studios in San Rafael, CA in May, 2012 and features some of their greatest hits such as (You Can Still) Rock In America and Sister Christian with refreshing new acoustic arrangements. The result is a testament to Night Ranger s stellar live show and the strength of their songwriting abilities. Please see below for the full track listings and click here to access cover art.

Night Ranger s profile has been particularly high of late, with the band recently appearing on an episode of ABC s Bachelor Pad during the final challenge and Night Ranger frontman Jack Blades performing live during the Republican National Convention. Night Ranger s legendary hits "Sister Christian," "(You Can Still) Rock in America," and "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" are songs that have each significantly impacted popular culture and expanded their ever-growing fanbase since the band s inception thirty years ago. Over the years, the band s music has made notable contributions to and been featured in many different areas of media and popular culture. Night Ranger s songs can be heard in the Rock Band and Guitar Hero video games; Rock of Ages hit Broadway musical and film; the Oscar-nominated film Boogie Nights; FOX s hit TV Show American Dad; JBL s Hear The Truth campaign; and many more! To date, Night Ranger has sold 17 million units worldwide and boasts several platinum- and gold-certified albums.

Night Ranger is Jack Blades (bass guitar, vocals), Kelly Keagy (drums, vocals), Brad Gillis (lead & rhythm guitars), Joel Hoekstra (lead & rhythm guitars) and Eric Levy (keyboards).

Quote
Guitarist Brad Gillis tells Ultimate Classic Rock that the new live release came about very naturally for the group. Performing acoustically, he says, was “pretty familiar for us,” thanks to years of playing stripped down versions of many of their hits during radio interviews and occasionally, in the middle of their own headlining performances.

With the big hits already in their acoustic arsenal, Gillis says that they just had to look at the rest of their catalog to pull out some additional songs to have enough for a full show. With a couple of days of rehearsal, he says that they reworked some of the songs “to make things a little bit different, and it turned out great.”

Gillis recalls that back in the ’80s, ‘(You Can Still) Rock In America’ came about as a result of frontman Jack Blades, who heard people saying that “rock is dead.” With Night Ranger selling out 15,000 seat venues at the time, Blades figured that the terminal diagnosis was perhaps a bit premature. He got with Gillis and shared his idea of a possible song idea. For Gillis, it was a no-brainer and he and Blades quickly knocked out the framework for the song and took it to the rest of the band.

From there, it was smooth sailing (or should we say, “motorin’,” to borrow from the band’s other future smash ‘Sister Christian’) and in his words, the “next thing you know, we had a nice rock anthem that’s been one of the highlights of our set for the past 30 years!”

Neal Schon and Carlos Santana Discussing New Collaborative Project

Quote
It’s been more than 40 years since Neal Schon left Santana to form the band that would become Journey. However, a new interview with Schon reveals that he and Carlos Santana have had preliminary talks about a potential new project.

“I’ve reconnected with Carlos Santana now and we have been talking about doing something together again,” he told Noise11 (via Vintage Vinyl News). “We’ve talked a lot on the telephone and I hooked up with him before Christmas. You never know what’s going to happen. Life is full of surprises. It’s very exciting.”

Schon got his start in Santana as a 15-year old wunderkind in the Bay Area. He appeared on two of their albums, 1971′s ‘Santana III’ and ‘Caravanserai’ a year later, before he and keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie decided to branch out on their own in 1975. Two years later, Journey released their debut album.

Schon has been busy of late on non-Journey projects. In addition to the potential upcoming work with Carlos Santana, he released a solo instrumental album, ‘The Calling,’ in October. “It has sections that are rockin’ and very electric and then there’s sections that are really deep and bluesy,” he told us on the eve of its release. “But I love the fact that there’s a lot of melody as well, for being an instrumental record.”

Life, Love & Hope - Boston
December 3, 2013

(http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/ultimateclassicrock.com/files/2013/10/Boston-Life-Love-Hope.jpg)

Quote
The countdown to the next new batch of Boston recordings has begun in earnest, and although the Dec. 3 release date for the band’s first new LP in 11 years might still feel pretty far away, at least we now have a record cover to look at while we wait.

Titled ‘Life, Love & Hope,’ the new record marks Boston’s arrival on Frontiers Records after successful stints at Epic and MCA, as well as a brief stop at Artemis for 2002′s ‘Corporate America’ release. And according to Scholz, his latest music deliberately hearkens back to the band’s best-known hits.

“These are songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of Boston’s harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analogue tape on the same machines and equipment used for Boston’s hits for the past 35 years,” said Scholz in a press release. “I intentionally stayed close to the early Boston style on some of the songs, even using the same amps and instruments; on others I let my imagination run wild.”

‘Life, Love & Hope’ marks the first Boston release since the tragic passing of original singer Brad Delp, who took his own life in 2007. But thanks to Scholz’s legendarily deliberate pace, the track listing will still feature performances from Delp, as well as vocals from Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme, David Victor…and Scholz himself.

‘Corporate America,’ released eight years after 1994′s ‘Walk On,’ peaked at #42 on the Billboard albums chart.

Santana IV (April 15, 2016)

(http://pisces.bbystatic.com/image2/images/music/id/696859969492;canvasHeight=210;canvasWidth=210)

April 15, 2016 marks the release date of Santana IV, the wildly anticipated studio album that reunites the revered early 70s lineup of guitar icon Carlos Santana (guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums). The album signifies the first time in 45 years since 1971 s multi-platinum classic Santana III that the quintet has recorded together.

Santana IV features 16 all-new tracks written and produced by the band that burst with the same unparalleled energy and superlative musicianship that made Santana a pioneering force in world music and a household name across the globe. Joining the core Santana IV band in the studio are current Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with the legendary vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts.

The origins for the reunion go back several years, when Schon suggested that he and Carlos Santana record together. Santana liked the idea but went one better, proposing that they recruit Rolie, Shrieve and Carabello for what would be called Santana IV. After initial writing sessions and rehearsals took place in 2013, the group recorded throughout 2014 and 2015, amassing 16 spellbinding tracks that combined all their signature elements Afro-Latin rhythms, soaring vocals, electrifying blues-psychedelic guitar solos, and irrepressibly jubilant percussion work with widescreen hooks and melodies that will lodge themselves in the thicket of listeners senses and stay there.

Kansas, one of my long time favorites is releasing a new album.

First track, With This Heart of Prelude Implicit... sounding real good. Vocals in particular.
