June 19, 2017

Continuing a pattern that has been repeated fairly often lately, new music releases for July are led by a number of ‘Reissues’ and Box Sets, with a few notable releases of actual ‘New’ music… First, the new music releases: for the first time in almost 25 years, the original MR. BIG will release a new album titled, “Defying Gravity,” and the quartet has once again turned to Producer KEVIN ELSON, who worked with MR. BIG on their previous 3 albums.  Rock & Roll Veteran, ALICE COOPER has his new “Paranormal” LP all set to go, with all new, original, solo material, a few “carefully selected ‘live’ recordings,” and 3 new songs written and recorded with ALICE’s original band members! CHRIS ROBINSON (formerly of The Black Crowes) will release “Barefoot in the Head” with his band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and lastly, expect a new album from CARLOS SANTANA, who continues his collaboration with members of The Isley Brothers, with whom the guitarist worked with on last year’s “Santana IV” album. Some of the more notable reissues on the way include 5 of BOB DYLAN’s 1960’s output, including his ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed album, “Highway 61 Revisited.” The BEACH BOYS, who have already re-released their legendary “Pet Sounds” album in a gigantic box set, will now release the ‘crown jewel’ of their recording career on vinylTHE CARS will release expanded re-issues of their (2nd and 3rd) albums, “Candy-O,” and “Panorama,” and The Ramones have a 40th Anniversary Edition of their album, “Leaving Home” all ready for their fans… Rock On!
