Paul McCartney - I Don't Know / Come On To Me
Paul McCartney – I Don’t Know / Come On To Me

I have just added 2 new tracks from the upcoming album from Paul McCartney (you know – that Beatle guy!) into high rotation on the playlist. McCartney‘s new album is called Egypt Station and is set for world-wide release on September 7th. It was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters). This will be McCartney‘s first album of all-new music since 2013’s New. Tune in now and listen for the tracks I Don’t Know and Come On To Me.

New Clapton, Allman Brothers Band and More!

Eric Clapton - Life In 12 Bars
Eric Clapton – Life In 12 Bars

I have just added 10 new tracks into high rotation from the following newly released classic rock albums:

Eric Clapton – Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars … This double disc album is the soundtrack for the recently released documentary on the iconic guitar player. It features songs from Clapton‘s career in John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos and his solo catalogue – but also some session work he did with the likes of Aretha Franklin, The Beatles and Delaney & Bonnie. The best part of the release is that it has 5 previously unreleased tracks that are actually essential to the Clapton catalogue. Listen for the tracks Little Wing (Live At the Fillmore East) by Derek & The Dominos, as well as the Clapton solo tracks Little Queenie (Live At Long Beach Arena) and the full length version of I Shot The Sheriff. Read the review here.

Buddy Guy – The Blues Is Alive and Well … The 7 time Grammy aware winner has released an excellent album at the young-at-heart age of 81! Listen for the tracks Old Fashioned, Ooh Daddy and Cognac (which features guest guitarists Jeff Beck and Keith Richards swapping guitar solos with the blues icon). Read the review here.

The Allman Brothers Band – Peach Picks: Cream Of the Crop 2003 … The four disc set captures selected live performances from July and August of 2003. It features the 2001 to 2014 lineup of original members Gregg Allman (keyboards, vocals) and drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, with percussionist Marc Quinones, guitarists/vocalist Warren Haynes, guitarist Derek Trucks and bassist Oteil Burbridge. Listen for a rocking cover of the Derek & The Dominos classic Layla and a 14 minutes workout of the bands classic Whipping Post – featuring Brantford Marsalis on saxophone. Read the review here.

The Beach Boys – With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra … Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road studios – this album pairs the band with a world famous orchestra, and the results are actually well worth a listen! Listen for the tracks Good Vibrations and Sloop John BRead the review here.

Roger Daltrey – As Long As I Have You

I have just added 4 new tracks into high rotation from the following newly released classic rock albums:

Roger Daltrey – As Long As I Have You … The lead vocalist of The Who returns with his first solo project in many years (although his bandmate Pete Townshend does play on 6 of the tracks). It features a return to his R&B roots – harking back to the very early days of The Who. Listen for the songs As Long As I Have You and How Far. Read the review here.

The Smithereens – Covers … This album features a collection of the bands’ favourite cover tunes. Listen for the songs The Seeker (originally done by The Who) and a cool version of Shakin’ All Over (originally done by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates). Read the review here.
