Guide To September Classic Rock Releases!

A number of noteworthy 'Live' performances on the schedule!

August 28, 2017

Another month, and another slew of Classic Rock album/video releases you'll want to take notice of! Leading the list of new albums in September is 'Southern Blood' the eagerly awaited final album from GREGG ALLMAN which was recorded in the last few months of the legendary singer's life. Another noteworthy posthumous release will be the album, '10X10,' which was the final record from guitarist, RONNIE MONTROSE. Some other heritage singers with new albums include the first recording in 9 years from smooth & smoky-voiced MICHAEL McDONALD ('Wide Open')  as well as the inimitable VAN MORRISON, whose 'Roll With The Punches' album (his 37th overall!) follows his previous album by only a year. RINGO STARR is back with 'Give More Love,' which features a 'reunion' with his BEATLES pal, PAUL McCARTNEY, and musical contributions/collaborations from (brother-in-law) JOE WALSH, EDGAR WINTER, and guitarist STEVE LUKATHER. Fans of MOTORHEAD will no doubt be looking forward to 'Under Cover' which features the ultra-Heavy Metal masters performing other people's songs, and including a never-before-heard version of DAVID BOWIE's 'Heroes.' (that song was recorded in 2015, shortly before LEMMY's death) A couple of cool reissues are scheduled too: ACE FREHLEY (Deluxe, expanded version of 2009's 'Anomaly' album), The ROLLING STONES 50th Anniversary edition of 'Their Satanic Majesties Request,'  the 25th Anniversary set for 'Core,' the debut from STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, and ALICE COOPER's 1976 concert movie, 'Welcome To My Nightmare.' There will be a number of new 'Greatest Hits' packages on the way from STEVE MILLER (Ultimate Hits), DEEP PURPLE (A Fire In The Sky), STEVE WINWOOD (Greatest Hits 'Live'), and ROBIN TROWER (Day Of The Eagle). Lastly, a number of fantastic 'live' releases will be available from THE ROLLING STONES (Live at The Fonda Theatre-2015) and DAVID GILMOUR's 'Live At Pompeii' performances!  Get busy and Rock On!
