Re: General Music Thread

I just read that Black Country Communion will be putting out their 3rd album soon.

This is about the greatest super group of all time and I'll happily buy another album of theirs.

Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian & Joe Bonamossa. Bonamossa does a great Robin Trower thing at times (though not so much on these two tracks)

Re: General Music Thread

Bump?

I've been recording quite a lot over the last few weeks. As soon as I get my MIDI cable, I'll try a bit of writing.
Oh, PKTrekGirl? I kinda love "Money For Nothing" now and a lot of the others are growing on me. Thanks.

Re: General Music Thread

Tribute albums abound, but this tribute version of Deep Purple's Machine Head, looks like it has a great line-up.

Black Label Society doing Pictures Of Home.



Iron Maiden does up Space Truckin'

Re: General Music Thread

Picked up Little Big Town's new album, "Tornado" this last week and have to say while I don't think it's as good as Road to Here or A Place to Land, it's still very enjoyable. The production could be a little loud, but the harmonies are still there. Also, because of that, I've been on a Little Big Town binge lately. They really have released some good stuff over the years. They really are one of the underrated groups in the format.

Such a wonderful voice, even when having a bad cold.

Re: General Music Thread

I was channel surfing the other night and landed on Starz where an episode of "Strike Back", a show I've never watched, was ending. In fact, the closing credits were running. Over the credits a song was playing that caused my ears to stand at attention immediately -- that hardly ever happens to me these days. The chorus had the line, "This ain't no place for no hero..." The song had me rocking in my seat.

Immediately ferreted out the title of the song and the band's name on youtube. I had no idea the band was, "The Heavy", whose name I had at least heard of. I had heard "How ya Like Me Now". I've since downloaded their older album, "Great Vengence and Furious Fire" and selcted tracks from the newer one, "The House That Dirt Built" (including the aforementioned "Short Change Hero"). Great band -- unique and very acccompished songwriters, arrangers. and performers.

I have read their sound described as 'James Brown meets Jack White' -- quite appropo. They are a young band that can do "old" with style. This band just appeared at a club around the corner from where I live about 1-2 weeks ago. I wish I'de known then what I know now.

This is by a friend of a friend of mine. My friend asked me to share it, so take a listen if you want. It's actually really good.

Re: General Music Thread

Jeff Lynne sounds exactly like he did 40 years ago. My biggest wish is a real ELO reunion. The full band, like in the 70's, with whoever is still alive.

I hate to say it, but I always assumed ELO was just Jeff Lynne and whomever he grabbed for that album, kind of like Karl Wallinger and World Party.

Re: General Music Thread

The original line-up was fairly steady. Obviously Jeff was "in charge" as far as writing, arranging & recording went.

I think the vocal harmonies were what suffered when the group was pared down in the 80's, though the music was still good.

Also the lack of stringed instruments in the 80's in favor of the synth. Again, not bad, just different and lesser somehow.
