As Colvin & Earle, longtime friends and admirers Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle have united to record their self-titled debut, a true standout in careers already filled with pinnacles and masterpieces. Produced by the masterful Buddy Miller and recorded in his living room studio, Colvin & Earle contains six co-written originals plus inspired covers including the Rolling Stones ‘Ruby Tuesday,’ and Emmylou Harris ‘Raise the Dead.’ Few things can touch the magic of artists so in tune that they seem to be able to read each other’s minds.
For anyone who’s been listening to great music during the past half-century, Paul Simon is certainly no stranger. So one of the most remarkable things about his extraordinary masterpiece, Stranger to Stranger, Paul Simon’s 13th solo record, is that it conjures a vivid and vital new context to his well-established genius as a singer and songwriter. Full of thrilling textures that feel fresh and modern, while still offering subtle and artful allusions to our shared musical past, Stranger to Stranger presents the perfect opportunity to get to know Paul Simon in a new way.
The band’s first new album in 20 years. Good Times finds all three surviving band members (Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork) taking turns on lead vocals, playing a wide range of instruments, and sharing new compositions. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal on the Neil Diamond-penned “Love To Love.” To produce the album, the band found the perfect musical co-conspirator in Grammy and Emmy-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy).
The second album from this reunited outfit featuring Tom Petty and Mike Campbell alongside their pre-Heartbreakers bandmates. Mudcrutch 2 is the follow up to the band’s 2008 eponymous debut, which Rolling Stone called “a country-rock instant classic” in a rave four star review. This album was produced by band members Tom Petty and Mike Campbell with Ryan Ulyate. All members of Mudcrutch contribute songs on Mudcrutch 2. The album includes seven originals written by Tom Petty, with band members Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh and Benmont Tench composing one each.
