Whether you ask bandmembers or longtime fans for the decisive moment when Motorpsycho became, for lack of a better word, themselves, almost all will point to Demon Box. It was the band's third and last album for Voices of Wonder Records. Their previous two, 1991's Lobotomizer and 1992's Soothe, showcased elements of the persona that gels here, but not the totality. Demon Box moves far beyond the hard psych, grungy guitar, and indie tendencies of those albums toward more formal song and compositional structures, as well as the far-flung experimentalist and improvisational frontiers that made them legends…
The Beatles’ Get Back sessions have been written about to death, so we'll keep it brief. The Beatles gathered on January 2, 1969 at Twickenham Studios with the intention of rehearsing brand new songs for a concert that would be televised live throughout the world. They also agreed to have the entire process filmed for an accompanying documentary.
Vocalist Doogie White, the former singer of Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen, is firmly convinced that "The Stranger Within is a fantastic sounding album with brilliant songs!" Above all Deep Purple fans and Rainbow fans of the Dio-era will be really delighted with this hard rock album consisting of 12 songs lasting 66 minutes – and this album contains everything which enthrals fans of classic hard rock bands: powerful vocals rich in variety as well as brilliant and sometimes spaced-out solos of the guitar and the organ. Classic hardrock at its best!

Known for their rise during the era of baggy and madchester U.K. band The Charlatans will return a new album in May, the follow up to 2015's Modern Nature. The album features guest appearnaces from Johnny Marr, Paul Weller, Stephen Morris and Kurt Wagner of Lambchop.
This is a very good live album from Alan Price which features a good mix of his old and new original material and a nice set of covers, such as Simon Smith and I Put a Spell on You. While the songs from O Lucky Man would be the best known, there are other gems here, such as Between Today and Yesterday (the LP which followed O Lucky Man) and the set as a whole is great listening. The musicians are top-notch and the production sounds really good; the drum sound is well captured, for example. Alan is in fine voice and sounds as if he's really enjoying the show(s). Highly recommended for fans of Alan Price, R&B or Randy Newman type songwriters.
