New Sting and Rossington Releases

Rossington - Take It On Faith
Rossington – Take It On Faith

I have added new tracks into high rotation in the playlist from Sting and from Rossington.

The new Sting album is called 57th & 9th and is a welcome return to a more rockin’ sound. Listen for the tracks One Fine Day and I Can’t Stop Thinking About You.

I have also added 4 tracks into high rotation from an album called Take It On Faith by Rossington. Rossington is none other than Garry Rossington (of Lynyrd Skynyrd fame) – teamed up with his wife Dale Krantz-Rossington. In a word, this album is “superb” – featuring Rossington‘s fine guitar work and Krantz-Rossington‘s smoky vocals. It even features a guest appearance by Billy Gibbons (of ZZ Top). Listen for the tracks Good Side Of Good, Highway Of Love, Two Very Different Things and Too Many Rainy Days.

New Bon Jovi, Hunter, Hayward and Santana

Ian Hunter & The Rant Band - Fingers Crossed
Ian Hunter & The Rant Band – Fingers Crossed

I have just added 5 newly-released classic rock tracks into high rotation in the playlist.

Listen for the track This House Is Not For Sale from the same-titled album from Bon Jovi. This is the first Bon Jovi album that does not have any song-writing contributions from the recently-departed Richie Sambora. I will let you decide whether the band is missing Sambora or not, but the album has received mixed reviews.

I also added 2 new tracks into high rotation from Ian Hunter & The Rant Band. Ian Hunter was a long-time member of the seventies Glam Rock band – Mott the Hoople. His latest release is called Fingers Crossed and is getting universally rave reviews. Listen for the track Ghosts as well as a tribute track to David Bowie called Dandy. When Mott the Hoople was struggling to be heard, Bowie not only gave them the title song for the album All The Young Dudes, but produced the record as well … kicking the band into high gear.

Santana also have released a new DVD/Blue Ray called Live At the House of Blue Las Vegas. Listen for the track No One To Depend On from this release.

Lastly – listen for the track The Wind Of Heaven from Moody Blues alumni Justin Hayward‘s compilation album called All The Way. The album features some of Hayward‘s best known solo tracks, some live performances, solo interpretations of Moody Blues songs, as well as the newly recorded track The Wind Of Heaven.
