Artist: Canned Heat Release: Illinois Blues 1973 (Live) Year: New release for 2015 Labels: Purple Pyramid Records Style of Music: Blues Rock/Boogie Rock Origins: Los Angeles, California, U.S.
I am not sure of the full context of these live tracks, I find very little information on this release right now, I do not know if these live songs belong to a much larger show or tour of that year. Anyway a rather lively set of live Blues Rock tracks recorded live somewhere in Illinois in 1973.
Artist: Def Leppard Release: Def Leppard Year: New Nov. 2015 Labels: Bludgeon Riffola/earMusic Records /Mailboat records Style of Music: Hard Rock/Pop Metal Origins: South Yorkshire, England
Well I must say I am rather liking this new release, nice to hear the band doing hard rock like they used to do. The release even has a Zeppelin like acoustic folky number called Battle Of My Own that is nicely done, without trying to over top Zeppelin's acoustic folk style from the 60's-70's. The band also does a Beatles style song called Blind Faith to finish this outstanding release out. The release for U.S. listeners dropped Saturday the 7th, so if you was a Def Leppard fan from long ago give this one a listen or two. My first listen through, the music has already grabbed me. Now all users need is for the band's older content to be made available for Spotify listeners worldwide. 🙂

A couple of releases that got added to the George Lynch's artist page Friday, November 13th, 2015
Furious George is just a cover album of classic rock songs which is rather good as only Lynch can do with his guitar skills. Let the Truth Be Known is a one-off release by the band name called Souls Of We with London Legrand - Vocals, George Lynch- Guitars, Johny Chow - Bass, Ya'el - Drums, with many guest musicians from Andrew Freeman of Lynch Mob, Jeff Pilson of Dokken and Dio, Frédéric Leclercq of DragonForce, Patrick Johansson of Yngwie Malmsteen, Bobby Jarzombek of Riot and Halford, session drummer Mike Hansen, and Morgan Rose of Sevendust. The whole release is a kind of post grunge Hard Rock / Blues Rock / alt-metal release, this one fits right in with Alice In Chains, Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana from the grunge rock heydays.

I am currently listening to my Rolling Stones playlist for this whole week. It is an artist discography collection playlist of content available to U.S. listeners, and so it is well loaded heavily with their studio album releases, live album releases, and various best of singles collection releases. Anyway here it is for those who like an indepth artist discography collection that can be set to play for a few weeks without changing to another playlist for awhile. This playlist has 1100 tracks total and a running time just over 70 hrs. I would do an in depth break down but with so much content here it would well take me awhile and I have other things to do to. So users are free to follow, or copy and paste what content they might wish to add to their own playlist, the playlist transitions easily from the early 60's blues/beat days, through the late 60's and the 70's onward to the modern era. 🙂
Artist: Third Eye Blind Release: Dopamine Year: 2015 November 27th Labels: Mega Collider Records Style of Music: Alternative rock, pop rock, power pop Origins: San Francisco, California
Rather strong release by the alternative rock outfit. This incarnation of the band might not have any of the other original band members from the stronger alternative rock hey days, but this release has a good strong music direction, the songs catch onto the listener after a few listens and they become something very nice to hear again. I think it is a B+ in recorded offered material, ahh music critics sometimes drive me bananas. 🙂
Artist: Queen Release: A Night At The Odeon Year: Released November 20th, 2015 - Recorded Live December 24th, 1975 during the final closing show of A Night At The Opera Tour at the famous Hammersmith Odeon Labels: Virgin EMI, Hollywood Style of Music: Hard Rock Origins: London, England
I am looking forward of the Video show of this famous live show to show up on the Cable Music channel I have access to that showcases live shows, and BlueRay Live shows released to the public. Enjoy, and rock out to classic Queen Live in all their glory.
Artist: The Doors Release: American Nights Year: Released 1991 - Recorded at shows during the years 1968-1970. Label: Elektra Style of Music: Psychedelic Rock Origins: California, USA
American Nights is a compilation of live tracks recorded at shows in the late 60's and early 70's. This album was produced by The Doors producer Paul A Rothschild.
Whilst I'm not really into that whole west coast psychedelia thing, having read an autobiography about Jim Morrison (No One Gets Out Of Here Alive), I gave them a listen - the only songs I knew where People Are Strange and Light My Fire (not the ridiculous Will Young version though!) Anyway, enjoy 🙂
