Brief News for Friday March 2nd, 2012

Hi folks,
TGIF I hear it ringing all around the office!!

Sad time for my old football team, even Brian Howe's efforts to try and save Portsmouth Football Club by pulling together some kind of consortium, look to have been in vain. At this point, if no one comes in to buy the club within the next five weeks, they will no longer exist. The club was founded in 1898 ... That is seriously sad.
Looking forward to seeing Michael Schenker playing along Robin McAuley once more tomorrow night.
I've been seeing the setlists from this current tour and it's killer!
Can't wait!
Well, otherwise folks, have a great weekend.
Cheers, Al

Eagle Rock Entertainment forthcoming releases for 2012

~APRIL 3, 2012~

New York, NY--Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to continue its Jeff Healey Band archival series with the April 3 DVD-CD release of Live In Belgium.
Touring in 1993 in support of their Feel This album, The Jeff Healey Band hit The Peer Blues Festival in Belgium running! The double-disc package-which includes the show both visually and aurally-contains 12 tight, taut gems in Dolby Digital Stereo and Dolby 5.1. The songs are highlighted by Healey's soulful vocals and his wild'n'wooly over-the-top electric guitar solos, played in his inimitable style on his lap like a dobro. His visceral, energetic performance sets the crowd buzzing right from note #1.
The 82 minutes fly by as Healey really gets into his signature cover of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" as well as "Roadhouse Blues" by The Doors and some of his own classic tracks including "Angel Eyes" and "Full Circle." Making this particular performance special is the fact that the trio is augmented by two backing vocalists and a keyboard player. This takes the presentation up to a whole new level as the band is, in effect, doubled. Besides the Feel This material, Healey performs tracks off his very popular See The Light and Hell To Pay albums.
Jeff Healey (1966-2008) was a Canadian singer/songwriter/guitarist of mammoth talent who fused a love of blues and rockin' anthems into a jam-happy stew of crowd-crazy proportions. He could sing like an angel, sting like a bee on his axe and perform like he was born to do so.
CD and DVD Track Listing:

1.Baby's Lookin' Hot
2.The House That Love Built
3.Evil And Here To Stay
4.Confidence Man
5.It Could All Get Blown Away
6.Lost In Your Eyes
7.Heart Of An Angel
8.Full Circle
9.That's What They Say
10.Angel Eyes
11. Roadhouse Blues
12.See The Light
13.While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Eagle Rock released a DVD version of this concert in 2007.

Twisted Sister/ Club Daze 2 and Live At Hammersmith/CDs
Released May 29 2012

Club Daze 2 continues the look back at the point in time when Twisted Sister was still just a local phenomenon on Long Island, New York. It picks up where last year’s Club Daze left off: back in the hot sweaty environs of loud, gin-soaked barrooms where the good times were earned via ear-bending power chords. You’ll hear Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie “Fingers” Ojeda, Mark “The Animal” Mendoza and A.J. Pero in all their youthful abandon and raw surging aggression.
Live At Hammersmith is vintage 1984 Twisted Sister recorded live at London’s famous Hammersmith Odeon.
