Inspired by folk, rock, country, and bluegrass, the London-based, platinum-selling Mumford & Sons feature singer/guitarist/drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo/Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist/keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist/bassist Ted Dwane. The foursome started playing together in 2007; though they were playing with other bands at the time, they bonded over their shared love of rootsy music.
20 CDs of live material from the final USA & Canadian 1974 tours, 1 CD of studio material featuring a new stereo mix of “Red”…
Something that always seems to draw the ire of rock fans is when a veteran artist decides to suddenly change his sound to fit with current trends in hopes of winning over a new set of fans. This certainly isn't the case with Chris de Burgh's 2004 release, The Road to Freedom. Continuing with the same stately and pristine sounds that resulted in a flirtation with the U.S. Top 40 during the mid-'80s ("The Lady in Red," etc.), Freedom could have easily been released in 1984 rather than 2004.
During the last quarter of the 20th century, and thanks largely to Eric Clapton's remarkable devotion to his memory, Robert Leroy Johnson posthumously became the most celebrated Delta blues musician of the pre-WWII era. Among numerous editions of his complete works and various anthologies that combine his recordings with those of his contemporaries and followers, J.S.P.'s The Road to Robert Johnson and Beyond combines many of his essential performances with those by dozens of other blues artists from Blind Lemon Jefferson and Henry Thomas to Muddy Waters and Elmore James.
Baba Shrimps are three musicians with a stunning and heart-warming interpretation of contemporary pop music. Shortly before the release of their debut album Neon (2014) the band was contracted by the label Sony Music. The album was a great surprise success and placed prominently in the Swiss charts. The band played over 200 concerts in clubs and festivals and opened for Kings of Leon and Kodaline. The trio with Adrian Kübler (Vocals / Guitar), Moritz Vontobel (drums / vocals) and Luca Burkhalter (Keys / Vocals) recently released their next album with producer David Kosten, who worked for his work with Everything Everything, Bat for Lashes And Marina and the Diamonds, was completed in London. The new longplayer will be released on 26 June 2017.
MANILLA ROAD - The epic metal legends lead by Mark Shelton are back again! On 30 June 2017, the new studio album "To Kill A King" will be released at Goldencore Records in 3 different configurations: - GCR 20111-2 (Standard Edition in Digipack) - GCR 20111-1 (double vinyl including an exclusive bonus track in tube bag with CD) - GCR 20111-2D (Deluxe box, with flag, storm lighter, plectrum and Digipack CD) Not counting the live albums, "To Kill A King" is now the eighteenth studio album by the inventors of Epic Metal from Wichita / Kansas. With the album they celebrate their anniversary year "40 Years Of Manilla Road". The iconic Metalheads left the underground scene only five, maximum six, years ago. Before, performances at festivals such as Sweden Rock, Hellfest and Bang Your Head were just as unusual as participating in the "700000 Tons Of Metal Cruise" in 2016. In spite of everything not Manilla Road have changed, but the scene and listening habits of metal heads and rockers. In their fortieth year, the band is finally at the right time and the right place to unite the underground with the conventional rock and metal scene.
The Road to Hell: Part 2 is the fifteenth studio album by Chris Rea, released in 1999, ten years after the first The Road to Hell. The Japanese edition includes two bonus tracks.
Don Felder, most famous for being the rocking guitar player, along with Joe Walsh, in the Eagles, is back with his first solo album in 30 years, the first since 1983. After a hard falling out with the Eagles and a divorce, Felder began crafting songs to describe where he was at in his life. The album mixes classic Felder/Eagles sounding tunes such as “Fall from the Grace of Love” and “Road to Forever” with more modern sounding contemporary songs like “Wash Away” and “I Believe in You.” Road To Forever is a worthy addition to anyone’s “Solo Eagles” collection.
