As with lots of remastered repacked stuff coming from Pink Floyd you can get the couple of CD’s of The Early Years 1965-1972 on its own, or with all the tons of goodies in the big package.
Californian alternative metal group Saint Blasphemer rocks hard on this new one of theirs.
Exotic Russian blonde Alana Luv simply melts fans’ hearts. The native New Yorker got her start working as a “Bunny Babe” at Dennis Hof’s infamous Bunny Ranch, (yes, the one that was featured on its own H.B.O. series) and then she moved on to adult movies where she has truly made her mark of late.
This remastered version of this live album released initially in 1978 sounds wonderful. The pounding “Red” opens, then Carmassi and Church begin the chunky “Rock ‘N’ Roll Weekend” and arena rocker sing-along, “Turn Up The Music” presents the band straight ahead and wailing. Hagar live staple and later monster hit for Rick Springfield, “I’ve Done Everything For You,” is here, the poppiest Hagar gets while the heaviest moment (and best tune for me personally) is the over-the-top blues rock fire of “Young Girls Blues.” Singing and playing lead here, this is Hagar’s moment for sure.
L.A.’s Color You have just released The Grand Trine. Opening with the title track, which is just a snippet of movie dialogue and wind sound effects into the jangly “In Tune.” The harmonies here work very well and the guys know how to lay back in service to a tune.I like how Han’s simple but effective bass
“Don’t Throw (my love away” with its quick lines of mandolin, banjo (and just as quick vocal) bass and backing harmonica opens Wicklow Atwater’s new album, The Fallen Flame String Band LP.
Back in 2014, writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely published her “A Rape On Campus” article. In that article, a University of Virginia woman, named “Jackie” to protect her privacy, claimed she was raped by multiple members of the on-campus frat Phi Kappa Psi. Rapes on college campuses, the UVA among them, have been reported and proven to have happened for years, a sad state of student life no one is disputing the validity of. But soon it came clear that Jackie’s claims were suspect; Rolling Stone was investigated by other journals questioning the facts of Erdely’s reporting and local police found many inconsistencies in Jackie’s account.
