Like last month, I’m splitting up the monthly pickups into two posts. These are all of my online purchases for November 2020. It is turning out to be a great year with a lot of excellent new releases and collections are up for grabs this holiday season!
These are the ones I had pre-ordered on amazon:
Ella Fitzgerald, The Lost Berlin Tapes
Ella was best on stage and The Lost Berlin Tapes I believe captured her better than any other recording I have heard. Even if you don’t like jazz I think you should check it out. Full Review
Pantera, Reinventing the Steel
Reinventing the Steel The 20th Anniversary Edition is a no-brainer must-have for any Pantera fan even if you already own and prefer the original CD. Full Review
Jimi Hendrix, Live In Maui
Jimi performing in front of an active volcano two months prior to his death. This collection includes the concert on two 2CDs and a Blu-ray of the show.
AC/DC, Power Up
What do you do when your favourite rock band ever releases new material for the first time in six years? You double dip with the CD and the vinyl release. Worth it. Full Review
I grabbed a couple of CDs off of amazon on Black Friday. $10 each.
The Strokes, The New Abnormal
I haven’t bought a new release from The Strokes… ever! I have been lucky finding their previous releases out in the wild for $2, but I gave this one a spin on Spotify and it is their best in years. A full review is incoming for this one.
John Fogerty, Fogerty’s Factory
The global pandemic of 2020 has had a few highlights, and John Fogerty’s YouTube channel has been one of them. Sequestered with his kids during the lockdown(s), he recreated a bunch of classic tunes with them. Full review is incoming.
And finally, I ordered from the band’s website a signed copy of:
Storm Force, Age of Fear
Thanks to all of the write ups from fellow bloggers, Mike DeLano, Deke, and The Mad Metal Man, I was finally gave Storm Force’s Age of Fear my full attention. It is truely a fantastic piece of ’80s hard rock that shouldn’t be missed! Full Review
So, that is all. Stay locked in right here for Part 2, coming up! It will feature some Weezer, Aerosmith, and Bob Dylan! All $2 grabs You don’t want to miss it!
