BOC Ready To Rock Times Square's Best Buy Theater On Sunday, October 28

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Blue Oyster Cult--unleashed in 1972, the eponymous debut album from America's heaviest psychedelic metal band presaged punk, thrash and hardcore--with the release of Blue Oyster Cult - The Columbia Albums Collection, a monumental career-spanning BOC library comprised of 16 CDs (the full official canon plus two discs of rarities) and the mythic Some OTHER Enchanted Evening DVD (a blistering concert video from 1978). The highly-collectible boxed set will be available Tuesday, October 30.

In addition, the Blue Oyster Cult - The Columbia Albums Collection box set comes with a special download code good for four live concert broadcasts as well as as a forty page booklet chock full of photos and liner notes from celebrated music writer and guitarist Lenny Kaye.

17. Radios Appear: The Best of the Broadcasts

Originally formed in Long Island as Soft White Underbelly in 1967, Blue Oyster Cult combined adventurous lyrical themes with an aggressive instrumental sound. With passion and intelligence on display in equal measure, Blue Oyster Cult became the thinking fan's rock band and a sign of life in a sea of dull, anemic soft-pop. Anthems like "Godzilla," "Harvester of Eyes" and "Don't Fear the Reaper" stretched the boundaries of rock topics while lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser became a hero to legions of budding axe-wielders. The band's mystique extended to their album artwork, resulting in some of the most distinctive and iconic LP covers of the rock era. Blue Oyster Cult - The Columbia Albums Collection gathers the essential pieces of the Blue Oyster Cult story into one mind-boggling totality.

Trailer for Deep Purple’s ‘Re-Machined’ Tribute Album



Eagle Rock Entertainment has recently announced the September 25th release of the Gary Moore CD, DVD and Blu-ray title 'Blues For Jimi.'
This release captures a unique concert featuring Moore playing Jimi Hendrix tracks, including such classics as “Purple Haze,” “Foxy Lady,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”
and many more. Filmed at the London Hippodrome on October 25, 2007, it was part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix “Live At Monterey” program.

At the end of the night, Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for three tracks.  The full line-up for this show was Gary Moore (guitar, vocals); Dave Bronze (bass);
Darrin Mooney (drums) with Billy Cox (bass on tracks 9-11, and also vocals on the first two of those) and Mitch Mitchell (drums on tracks 9-11).

Both Gary Moore and Mitch Mitchell have passed since this concert took place, which makes the recording of this incredible night so special. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time
and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix’s groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.


1)  Purple Haze  
2)  Manic Depression  
3)  Foxy Lady  
4)  The Wind Cries Mary  
5)  I Don’t Live Today  
6)  My Angel

Kiss, Motley Crue Donate $100,000 to Aurora Victim Relief Fund

Kiss and Motley Crue are set to donate $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund, in order to help those affected by the cinema shooting in Colorado last month.

Both Kiss and Motley Crue – who are currently on tour together in North America – pledged to donate the large sum of money during their show on Wednesday night (August 8) in Denver, near to where the
shooting happened.

In a written statement, Paul Stanley of KISS and Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue said that they hoped their gesture would encourage other people to give money to those affected by the disaster.


Alligator Records to Reissue Professor Longhair’s LP 'Crawfish Fiesta' On Vinyl

Alligator Records are set to reissue Professor Longhair’s legendary LP 'Crawfish Fiesta' on October 16. The classic album, recorded just months prior to Longhair’s passing in 1979 and released shortly after in 1980, will see a retun to the vinyl format where it has been out of print for more than two decades.

The remastered version will also be available in MP3 format from all major download services. The beloved album, which, upon release, won the first-ever W.C. Handy Blues Album of the year award, features some of the best recorded performances of Fess’ long and storied career. Alligator’s remastered edition will also feature a cover of Percy Mayfield’s R&B nugget “River’s Invitation,” a previously unreleased rehearsal cut.

In addition to claiming the definitive verision of the New Orleans anthem “Big Chief,” Crawfish Festia is also highly regarded for its impeccable musicianship


Dave Stewart New Album Release

Eurythmics star Dave Stewart will release his new album called 'The Ringmaster General,' on September 4th in the US and September 3 in Europe.

Dave Stewart holds a special place in his heart for Nashville. That's where the legendary British singer, songwriter and guitarist has now recorded two albums: 2011's critically praised The Blackbird Diaries and the forthcoming The Ringmaster General, which was produced by Stewart and Mike Bradford.

A potent and distinctive musical gumbo with rock, blues, country, rhythm & blues and psychedelia, The Ringmaster General was recorded and mixed by John McBride at the famed studio he owns with Martina McBride, Blackbird Studio. It features 13 new songs--including striking duets with Alison Krauss, Diane Birch and Joss Stone--as well as one sung with and co-written by Jessie Baylin. The blistering guitar skills of Orianthi are featured as well. As with The Blackbird Diaries, Stewart is backed by some of the finest musicians in Nashville including: guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, steel guitarist Dan Dugmore and Mike Rojas on piano.

Says Stewart: "Well to me Nashville has that electric music energy feeling that you get when you arrive in certain cities or towns like Kingston, Jamaica and Havana in Cuba, except Nashville also has the feeling of being in the heart of a huge country (which it is) and it feels kinda like coming home."

He elaborates: "But it's mainly about the people I work and play with there. I've been so fortunate as to have landed in the arms of the McBrides and becoming part of an extended family. John McBride and I share the same crazy passion for sound and all the guys in the band I record with (and the girls) are up for that wild adventure I like to bring in the studio. All the musicians know I'm going to do lots of different experiments in songwriting and performance and they also know that I don't know what it's gonna be yet so it makes for an interesting time, a white knuckle ride, and a wild party of sound."

Stewart's love for Nashville is captured in the documentary The Blackbird Diaries And The Ringmaster General. The film will premiere at a VIP event Wednesday, August 22 VIP at Nashville's Belcourt Theatre, with a limited number of general admission tickets to be made available to the public:

Each ticket includes a free limited edition vinyl copy of Stewart's album The Ringmaster General.The Blackbird Diaries And The Ringmaster General captures Stewart through the whirlwind recording process of two explosive albums. This tongue-in-cheek documentary follows Stewart's adventures in songwriting, letting the viewer witness his eccentric but compelling methods of creativity. The days were filled with mayhem and martinis, while a circus of characters cross Stewart's path; many muses appear to join in the fun including Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Colbie Caillat, The Secret Sisters, Joss Stone, Stevie Nicks, Jessie Baylin, Diane Birch and Orianthi.


Neal Schon Solo Album Release

Journey guitarist Neal Schon is scheduled to release his new solo album, 'The Calling,' on October 22nd in the UK and October 23rd in the US.

Produced by and featuring Schon on all guitars and bass, 'The Calling' reunites Schon with former Journey bandmate, Steve Smith, who lends his drum talents to all 12 tracks on the new album.

Schon set up shop at Berkeley's famed Fantasy Studios during a break from Journey's busy touring schedule and recorded the album, completely from scratch, in just four days. After overdubbing multiple guitar and bass parts, Schon recruited two keyboard masters to flesh out the music. Igor Len, an accomplished classical, jazz and film composer who had previously collaborated with Schon, is featured on acoustic piano throughout The Calling album.

Special guest Jan Hammer (Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miami Vice soundtrack) recorded Moog synthesizer solos on two tracks – Fifty Six and Tumbleweeds. Recently, Schon teamed up with Dan Barnett (Journey: Live In Manila) to produce the video for the first single and title track from The Calling.

The World Gets Lifted by MIGHTY HIGH: New Ripple Music Release Tearing Up the Music Sites, Inspires New Deluxe Mighty High Package


Cosmic Lava proclaims that the latest Mighty High slice of primal rock mayhem is "angry, funny and a powerful jolt of rebellious energy." Downtuned Mag boasts that Legalize Tres Bags is "is an addictive, vulgar, raw, aggressive, filthy son of a bitch. A thirty-minute bad-ass, pure garage-punk 'n' roll fun ride." And Ringmaster spits out "Legalize Tre Bags is a raucous feast of punk, weed, and middle finger attitude-- most of all it's a deeply satisfying slab of rousing rock n roll."

It ain’t politically correct and it ain’t safe. And it appears to be exactly what the world needs right now.

Hot on the heels of Ripple Music’s wildly successful "Blog Tour Release Party" which saw Legalize Tre Bags making it's debut over a series of song premieres on The Soda Shop, Heavy Planet, Cosmic Lava, Grip of Delusion Radio, and The Ripple Effect, the accolades for Brooklyn's Mighty High have been roaring in.Perhaps it's because people are fed up with corporate greed raping the world, fed up with politics as usual, or merely exhausted by the cookie-cutter, overly-produced crap that passes for popular music these days. Or perhaps the world just wants to have fun and rock the fuck out! Whatever the reason, Mighty High seems to have scratched a gigantic international itch for balls-out, irreverent rock music.

To celebrate, Ripple Music is making available in its online store, a special Mighty High package, to help fans get up to speed with the Mighty High story. The package includes every Mighty High release to date: Legalize Tres Bags black vinyl, the "Drops a Deuce" 7" vinyl, the Mighty High/Stone Axe split 7", the double 7" set, Heavy Ripples, featuring the Mighty High tune, "Hempaphobic" and Mighty High's first album In Drug City on CD. All of these are blessed with that wild, Crumb-inspired Braino artwork that Mighty High has become famous for. That's every Mighty High release on vinyl, and the incredibly rare
debut CD, all for one low price! Check out the Ripple store for the Mighty High Deluxe set.

HOODED MENACE - Effigies of Evil

Finland’s doom/death-lords Hooded Menace make their Relapse debut with ‘Effigies of Evil’, a brutally ripping album of slow-paced, down-tuned ultra-heaviness.  Combining the grooving riffs of High on Fire and early Cathedral with the fire of classic Autopsy and Dismember, ‘Effigies Of Evil’ is an instant metal classic.  ‘Effigies Of Evil’ is the peak combination of Hooded Menace’s fascination with classic 90s death metal, prototypical 70s doom and cult horror flicks-----a collection of obsessions that any heavy-music fan proudly wears for life.

 ‘Effigies of Evil’ is a triumphant album of filth, sludge, riffs and groove that transforms cult heroes Hooded Menace into legitimate heavy metal of the most intimidating and unforgiving metal albums of the year" - Decibel

"the album is a consistent slow-burn of massive riffs and cavernous growls" - Metal Review

"This record is highly recommended for those who are looking to get away from the cookie-cutter mold of today's oversaturated death metal scene" Revolver Magazine
