Just a few notes to interest you…maybe (remember when I used to do these?):
Billy Idol has a new album announced for September although there is no information beyond that. It will be his first in a decade, and coincides with the release of his autobiography, Dancing With Myself, planned for October 7. In addition, there will be an extensive World Tour that starts on June 17 and is promised to bleed into 2015.
Heading over to YouTube, there is a pre-release song from Ted Nugent‘s upcoming Shut Up & Jam! album, which is expected on July 8. The song, “Never Stop Believing” is actually not bad. Certainly a blast from the past.
I’m particularly invested in this UK import title featuring a live set from Talking Heads. The album is called Live Chicago 1978, and features their late ’70s Park West performance ( I LOVE Park West). I was not at this show although I wish I had been. Still…nice pick-up! Here’s your link!
Snapper UK will release a live set featuring 13th Floor Elevators called Live Elevation Lost recorded at Houston Music Theatre on February 18, 1967. Music at its prime! Available on LP and CD.
Virgin Records will release the new Adelitas Way album, Stuck, on July 29.
Lost Time In A Bottle featuring live Jim Croce performances and demos will be available on July 22 via Cleopatra Records. A quick glance at the track list can easily convince you that this is a must own set.
