Lee Aaron releases 'Live in Sweden' from the 2011 Sweden Rock Festival

Lee Aaron's latest release, 'Live in Sweden' at the annual Sweden Rock Festival from 2011, is now available to fans everywhere, exclusively through Lee's site. 

Not too much information on this one really, but it is an official release and can be ordered from here:

Seems a little pricey, although it's being sold as an autographed copy...
I think they should make available, non-autographed, to keep the price down for those that would love the material, but can only afford the basic DVD.

It contains the following tracklisting, from Lee's performance at the Sweden Rock Festival event:

'Concrete And Ice'
'Hands On'
'Baby Go Round'
'Handcuffed To A Fence In Mississippi'
'Sweet Talk'
'Some Girls Do'
'Odds Of Love'
'Barely Holdin’ On'
'Whatcha Do To My Body'
'Metal Queen'
'Do I Move You'
'Bad Boyfriend'

Bonus features include press conference, backstage interview, Lee Aaron’s special message to Sweden Rock fans and tons of pictures!
All DVDs are “Region 0″.
Not available in stores. Available exclusively from!

I've always thought she had a great voice, even though she went through a spell away from rock, doing what Pat Benatar did with the blues / jazz thing for a while.
Good to see her back on the rock vibe.

Richard Marx new CD/DVD release of PBS TV recording

Richard Marx’s live performance CD/DVD 'A Night Out With Friends' is now available at Amazon here:

Special guests from the show include Hugh Jackman, JC Chasez, Sara Niemietz and Matt Scannell.

The live recording of the PBS series Front Row Center is a CD/DVD combo – CD features 12 tracks (10 live + 2 brand new studio tracks) and the DVD features all 21 tracks of the complete concert (including footage not featured on PBS).

He is also offering a free MP3 download of 'Take This Heart,' if you follow this link to Richard's Facebook page:

Does seem a little strange if you ask me, that this should be released now though, so soon after the recent 2 CD + DVD set through Walmart in the States and Frontiers in Europe? 
I guess the CD does have two brand new songs that are not available anywhere else ...

~July 10, 2012~
New York, NY (June 20, 2012) — Leave it to Eagle Rock Entertainment, the world’s leader in visual music, to come up with a rare gem of rock’n’roll and blues history. July 10 is the street date for the DVD and special two-disc DVD/CD package of Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones 'Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981.'

Additionally, this delectable slice of American History will also be released as a DVD/2LP vinyl set on September 11.

On November 22, 1981, the Rolling Stones were criss-crossing America on one of their mammoth tours when they had a night off in Chicago, Illinois. What to do? The decision was a no-brainer. Muddy Waters (1915-1983) was in town that night performing at his own juke-joint, The Checkerboard Lounge. It didn’t take long before The Master called up to the stage his students, vocalist Mick Jagger, guitarists Ron Wood and Keith Richards and piano player Ian Stewart. The four Stones wound up jamming with Muddy and his band to the absolute delight of the lucky patrons there that night and, man, they raised the roof.

It was all caught on camera and recorded for posterity.
Now, with the advantage of DTS Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Stereo, mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this 90-minute wang-dang-doodle has been lovingly preserved for the ages. Add Buddy Guy, Junior Wells (1934-1998), and other musicians into the equation and the sum of these parts is not only greater than the whole but worth salivating over. Heretofore only available as a bootleg, this is the complete package that will have musicologists buzzing.


1) Sweet Little Angel
2) Flip Flop And Fly
3) Muddy Waters Introduction
4) You Don’t Have To Go
5) Country Boy
6) Baby Please Don’t Go
7) Hoochie Coochie Man
8) Long Distance Call
9) Mannish Boy
10) Got My Mojo Working
11) Next Time You See Me
12) One Eyed Woman
13) Baby Please Don’t Go (Instrumental)
14) Blow Wind Blow
15) Champagne & Reefer
