NEW RELEASES:

CD’s:

I will be honest with you. This is a very disappointing week for CD releases. The only one worthwhile is below…

 ZZ TOP - Live From Texas - A CD accompaniment to the Eagle Rock live DVD release of ZZ Top’s November 1, 2007 set at the Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie, TX, Live from Texas is one for the fans. The set list is hits-heavy, containing every one of the MTV hits from Eliminator and all the classic rock radio staples, all taken just a little bit slower. 

HINDER releases another record but it is getting panned by everyone.
