R.I.P. ED BRADLEY
and now... NEXT WEEK'S NEW RELEASES!
Two import releases worth your time and money: First, the new MAGIC NUMBERS album, THOSE THE BROKES, the highly anticipated followup to their critically acclaimed debut. Advance word on this says it could be the album of the year. And then there's 10cc's GREATEST HITS AND MORE -- what makes this new 2 CD anthology surpass any previous hits CD is its inclusion of pre-10cc hits by HOTLEGS, solo hits by GODLEY & CREME and WAX UK, the band that featured Graham Gouldman and Andrew Gold, as well as the Gouldman-penned hits "Bus Stop" and "No Milk Today," made famous by the Hollies and Herman's Hermits. Many tracks, new remastering... it's everything you could want in one package.
MARK KNOPFLER & EMMYLOU HARRIS - REAL LIVE ROADRUNNING. Just a few months after their collaboration, "ALL THE ROADRUNNING," we now get a document of the coinciding tour, in a package that features a live CD along with a DVD including seven additional tracks.
The entire LOREENA McKENNITT catalog gets rem... ZZZZZZZZZ...
DAMIEN RICE - 9. This is Damien's new reco... ZZZZZZZZZZZ....
NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE - LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST. Finally Mr. Young makes good on his promise to release material from the archives. First up is this classic show from 1970 which also comes in a special package that features two DVDs.
YUSUF (formerly CAT STEVENS) - AN OTHER CUP. Surprisingly good return to the pop world from one of of the '70s biggest hitmakers. We're just surprised that it took 28 years for someone to tell him that it's OK for Muslims to play music. But seriously, we've heard five songs off this new release, and it's as good as his fans have been hoping for.
JOHNNY CASH - AT SAN QUENTIN (2 CDs/DVD). Originally a single CD, this classic live performance now features the entire concert, including guest spots by Carl Perkins, the Statler Brothers, June Carter Cash, and Teddy Geiger. Also features a DVD containing a 1969 documentary of his appearance at the famed house of detention.
JOAN OSBORNE - PRETTY LITTLE STRANGER. One of our favorite vocalists and performers rolls the dice yet again and cuts an entire record in Nashville. Joan's got one of those voices that can sing the phone book and have it move you, but after hearing this record, we kind of wish she'd sing the phone book instead. One wonders who's making these confusing career decisions for a most talented artist.
KENNY G - I'M IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. Well, you're not gonna get it with those banana curls, asswipe.
THE GAME - DOCTOR'S ADVOCATE. This has been called the hip-hop album of the year by the gangstaz down at Tha New York Timez, so you know it's going to be, like, street or fly or something.
Also on the horizon for next week are these hysterically named hip-hop CDs:
ANTI MC - IT'S FREE BUT IT'S NOT CHEAP.
LIL BOOSIE - BAD ASS MIX TAPE.
RP COLA - ACT LIKE YOU KNOW.
SMIGG DIRTEE - RESUME.
FATT BIGG - KILLIN' MYSELF TO DIE.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be seeing new releases from:
THE BEATLES - LOVE. The soundtrack to the Cirque Du Soleil show is truly a labor of love from the legendary producer George Martin, along with Paul, Ringo, and even George. If you know what a mash-up is, consider 26 of the most astonishing mash-ups you'll ever hear, remixed for Surround Sound. And if you don't know, trust us, this is absolutely essential.
TOM WAITS - ORPHANS. Three CDs of unreleased and non-album tracks spanning the great man's entire career.
ELVIS COSTELLO & ALLEN TOUSSAINT - HOT AS A PISTOL, KEEN AS A BLADE (DVD). a 2 1/2 hour live document of the fabulous "River In Reverse" tour.
U2 - U218. A career-spanning singles collection featuring two new tracks, including "The Saints Are Coming," their collaboration with Green Day.
JAY-Z - KINGDOM COME. The biggest mega-super-duperstar in the history of the world returns with his comeback album.
THE DOORS - PERCEPTIONS. The Doors' catalog gets remastered yet again, but this time in a really big box that features both CDs and 5.1 DVD Audios. They also include lots of bits that the band recorded but decided to leave off the original records.
OASIS - STOP THE CLOCKS. A new greatest hits collection, originally titled (What's The Story) Morning Glory.
NOTORIOUS B.I.G. - READY TO DIE (CD/DVD). One of the records that turned us off hip-hop forever, but beloved by many, and now back in print with a bonus DVD.
ROBERT PLANT - 9 CD BOX SET. Every solo album, including the Honeydrippers EP, remastered with bonus tracks.
If that doesn't get your music floogie flappin' again, stick a fork in ya!
UNTIL NEXT WEEK, WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS:
If music be the food of love, what do dinner theater be?
Coolio & Julio Iglesias
