Here are the new albums coming out this Tuesday that I think are relevant:
George Harrison’s first-ever career-spanning solo hits collection, Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison. Special packaging includes a 28-page booklet featuring previously unseen and rare photos, and newly-written liner notes by Warren Zanes. The collection’s 19 tracks have been digitally remastered by Giles Martin at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios. “Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison is a gathering of material that takes us far into the territory that was ultimately a place unique to George Harrison,” writes Warren Zanes in his liner notes essay for the new collection.
George Harrison – If Not For You (Bob Dylan Cover)
The Wallflowers releasing a greatest hits album is like me writing my memoirs 10 years ago. They were a solid band & I saw them live twice, enjoying both shows, but I just don’t see the point of a greatest hits album. They made 3 albums, right? Maybe 4 I’m too lazy to look it up & the first 2 were great, but Jakob Dylan is far better on his own.
6th Avenue Heartache (Live) – The Wallflowers
I could write the exact same thing I just wrote about the Wallflowers, but instead ladies & gentlemen…George Jones:
Incubus – Echo
Before you say anything about Linkin Park, keep in mind I said relevant.
