I have just added 12 more tracks into high rotation from the following newly released classic rock albums:
Steve Perry – Traces … The ex-Journey vocalist returns with his first album of new material since 1994’s For The Love of Strange Medicine. The unmistakable voice is still in fine form. Listen for the tracks – Easy To Love and Sun Shines Gray. Read the review here.
Tom Petty – An American Treasure … This box set captures deeper cuts, alternate takes and unreleased songs Petty left off his previous boxed set (Playback). Listen for a live version of a duet with Stevie Nicks (of Fleetwood Mac) called Insider, an early longer, live version of the classic song Breakdown, an alternate version of the song Rebels (with horns!) and a previously unreleased rocker called Lonesome Dave. Read the review here.
Phil Collins – Plays Well With Others … This 4 CD box set showcases the incredible variety of musical artists that the ex-Genesis drummer/vocalist has collaborated with. Listen for Collins playing on the tracks Sweet Little Mystery by John Martyn, Savannah Woman by Tommy Bolin, Walking On Air by Stephen Bishop and drumming and singing on a cover of the Beatles‘ Abbey Road suite Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End – which he recorded with the legendary Beatles’ producer George Martin.

Rod Stewart – Blood Red Roses … After a decade of crooning the American Songbook, the ex-Faces vocalist returns with an album of more contemporary music. Listen for the track Vegas Shuffle. Read the review here.
John Lennon – Imagine (The Ultimate Collection) … A lavish celebration of Lennon‘s 1971 masterpiece, this box set is an in-depth examination of everything that went on around the recording of this pivotal album. Listen for the song God Save Oz. Read the review here.
