On August 7, Audio Fidelity will reissue my favorite Ten Years After album, Rock And Roll Music To The World.  I’m in!

[Note]: I know I’ve been a little slack with postings lately, however, with getting the LA house ready for a quick (I hope!) sale, and a planned move back to IL, things have been maniacally hectic ’round here.  Once things settle, I’ll get back to normal.  Keep The Faith!

  1. I don’t remember you announcing this Matt….

    The first comes from Green Day, which releases an album of power pop, ¡Uno!, Sept 25. (The record is the first in a trilogy; the others arrive Nov. 13 and Jan. 15.)

  2. My days of rabid KISS fanddom passed about the time I turned 15 but I’d be interested in hearing some outtakes from the “Destroyer” sessions as well as the sessions from the “Rock And Roll Over” and “Love Gun”. IMHO that was their peak period with their three best albums all released over a about a 15 month period. Given that they had 3 albums so quickly I’m going to bet there was not a lot of unused songs but I bet there are some interesting demos.
