New Releases This Week: 30 Seconds to Mars, Neil Young, Kraftwerk vinyl

For those of you following along at home - the closer that we get to Christmas Day, you'll notice that the new releases will continue to dwindle.  But on a positive note, we mentioned one particular artist in the past two updates, and now he's got himself a Cleveland show booked.  So since we're a little bit bored,  we're going to try to see if we can make lighting strike again this week by mentioning an artist again, that we'd like to see here in Cleveland.

*drum roll*

Bob Seger.

Bob Seger on Rolling Stone

There you go.  Now you and I can sit back and wait to see if Mr. Seger hears our call, and announces a Cleveland date.  I'd hate to have to send Mel after him, but I will do whatever I have to do, to make things happen!

Here's an abbreviated look at several of the notable new releases that are hitting stores this week - go on out and buy us a copy of each, and send it to the P.O. Box address listed on the right hand side of this website.

On a serious note, there's all sorts of cool-ass digital reissues, including a ton from the Del-Lords and Dramarama!

30 Seconds To Mars - This is War

3 Doors Down - Where My Christmas Lives - Hold me closer, Tony Danza.

AC/DC - No Bull:  Director's Cut (DVD)

The Alarm - Greatest Hits Live - MP3 reissue of the mid-90's live disc that came out originally on Beyond Music

The Babys - Alive in America - I'm curious to know what this is.....perhaps a reissue of their live performance from Denver in 1980?  P.S. - stoked about the news regarding a possible reunion tour in 2010!

Bauhaus - This is For When (deluxe edition, vinyl)

The Beatles - complete catalog on USB stick

Jimmy Buffett - Buffet Hotel - Wastin' away here in Margaritaville.....hey, somebody hand me that harmonica.  Oh come on, don't give me that dirty look - you love it when I play the harmonica, especially when I start wailin' on the Neil Young songs.  Quick story:  This one time, I went to see Jimmy Buffett at Blossom Music Center.

The Clipse - Til The Casket Drops - Rick Rubin realized that many parents would be searching for that perfect gift to put under the tree for their children this holiday season.  And let's face it, nothing says happy holidays quite like an album titled Til The Casket Drops.  Feliz Navidad!

Lloyd Cole and the Commotions - Rattlesnakes (deluxe edition) - Now it's finally coming out!

Creed - Live (DVD)

Erasure - The Innocents (deluxe edition)

George Michael - Live in London (DVD and Blu-ray) - insert your favorite "filmed in a bathroom" joke here.  P.S. - read the first review, which says that the audio sucks.

King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King (40th anniversary edition)

Kraftwerk - vinyl reissues

Marillion - Less Is More - The Marillion boys go acoustic with their latest effort - there's no word on whether the fans paid for the acoustic guitars.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Pin Points and Gin Joints - Their first album from 2002, and despite the title, Snoop Dogg's not on this one.

Parliament - Tear The Roof Off: 1974-1980

Pulp - His 'N Hers, Different Class, This is Hardcore (deluxe editions)

Puddle of Mudd - Volume 4:  Songs in the Key of Love and Hate - Another cheery album title for the holidays....gee, I really wish I could play tracks from this one on the radio.  NOT!  This is the pre-quel to their forthcoming fifth album entitled Please Quit.

Rush - R30 (Blu-ray)

Joe Walsh - The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get - 24KT Gold Audio Fidelity reissue.

Neil Young - Dreamin' Man Live '92 - Live version of the Harvest Moon album.

    Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please, Mr. Seger!

    I knew that you'd be on my side on this one. As I recall, you've never seen
    Bob, which is a real shame. A crime, actually.

    Seeger…I had a friend growing up and his parents ALWAYS had the Live Silver Bullet band album cranking when ever I went over. Have fun at that one.

    Just listened to the new/old Neil. Good stuff…no real surprises (meaning familiar stuff and damn good).

    The stuff that the ATV readers need to hear? The BB King/Ike & Tina disk from the Stones 40th anny Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out deluxe box set. THIS may be the release of the year! Hot Damn!

  • Matt

    Seger's Live Bullet and Nine Tonight are two of my favorite live albums, for sure. I got to see Seger in December of 2006 IN Detroit, which was really awesome….another one of those “dream ticket” shows.

    You know what, I forgot about that BB King/Ike & Tina disc that is in the Stones box set. I need to hear that!

    I just had to skull a beer after the BB stuff…its fuel for the tank.

    On the Tina/Ike stuff now. “Tina is singing Son of a Preacher Man”. I almost feel guilty listening to her and lusting after her sex-pot performance knowing that Ike was such a behind the scenes son of a bitch.

    Crazy thang about Ike is that he had his hands in so much early/legendary music…he could have been known as one of the “orginators”, but instead we remember him as a wife-beating (Tina, no less), drug-addled, funk-pimp…who died of a cocaine induced heart attack.

    Rock and roll never forgives…indeed. (Thanks for the lyric Bob S.)

    Tina is tearing up.
