This Week’s New Music Releases (Sort Of)
There are 3 new music releases this week that I’m excited about. A newly released live album from a legendary group, live audio from a festival celebrating a legend, and legends paying tribute to a future legend. Intriguing right? Look out for these 3 newly released gems:
Fleetwood Mac, “Boston” – It’s a three-disc live album, which was recorded over three nights in Boston back in 1970. The lineup was Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.
Eric Clapton, “Crossroads Guitar Festival” – A two-disc set that includes performances by John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., Buddy Guy, the Robert Cray Band, Los Lobos, Vince Gill, Jeff Beck, Jimmie Vaughan, and of course Eric Clapton.
Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute To Jack White – It inlcudes Wanda Jackson and Shooter Jennings’ version of “In the Cold, Cold Night”, and more covers by Big Jay McNeely, Sonny Burgess, Gary U.S. Bonds, and Bobby Vee, among others.
