New Boz Scaggs, Elvin Biship and Bob Dylan

Boz Scaggs-Out of The Blues
Boz Scaggs-Out of The Blues

I have just added 6 new tracks into high rotation from the following newly released classic rock albums:

Boz Scaggs – Out Of the Blues … For over 10 years now Boz Scaggs has been releasing albums that are grittier and more blues-based than his most popular albums from the mid-1970s to mid-1980s. This new album maintains that trend, taking the music back into the blues (contrary to what the album title says!) Listen for the tracks Little Miss Night and Day, I’ve Just Got to Forget You and Rock and Stick. Read the review here.

Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio – Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here … Their previous debut album garnered a Grammy nomination and the band continues in a fun-filled bluesy direction. Listen for the hilarious take on those in power on the song Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here and the instrumental track Bob’s Boogie. Read the review here.

Bob Dylan – Live 1962 – 1966: Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections … This two-disc compilation of early concert recordings brings together material previously only available on the limited edition 50th Anniversary/Copyright Extension albums. Listen for the track Baby Let Me Follow You Down, which was recorded in May 1966 at the Capitol Theatre in Cardiff, UK. Read the review here.

Amazon Echo/Alexa Can Stream Choice Classic Rock

Amazon EchoAre you an Amazon Echo/Alexa user? Do you use Echo and the Alexa voice recognition to stream music in your house? Then you can stream Choice Classic Rock over your Echo device. Since Choice Classic Rock is on TuneIn radio and you can access TuneIn radio from your Echo/Alexa device – you can start streaming us with a voice command.

However, you have to use the correct syntax to start the stream – or Alexa will think you are looking for a Classic Rock genre that doesn’t exist. Here is the WRONG way to do it (which unfortunately, is how the Echo/Alexa instructions tell you to do it): “Alexa, stream Choice Classic Rock on TuneIn.This will not work

Instead, use the following voice command: “Alexa, stream the station Choice Classic Rock on TuneIn.Alexa needs to hear the word “station” before “Choice Classic Rock” to know this is the station you want. State the command using this syntax and it will start the stream and you will be happily listening to the best classic rock in the world!

Choice Classic Rock – classic rock like you’ve never heard it before!
