The Beach Boys - That's Why God Made The Radio - Brian Wilson - The Beach Boys - 50th Anniversary

What a fantastic week for new releases! What a terrible week for me to be flat broke! It's tragic. There are so many cool discs coming out and all I can do is add them to my Wishlist.

The Beach Boys have reunited for their first album with Brian Wilson, That's Why God Made The Radio. This year marks their 50th Anniversary and all the surviving members of the band have together. Brian is the only Wilson brother remaining and he is joined by Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks.

There's another reunion this week, Neil Young has made his first album with Crazy Horse in nine years: Americana.

Paul Simon - Graceland 25th Anniversary EditionPaul Simon's landmark, Grammy-winning Graceland turns 25 this year and has been remastered for re-issue this week in numerous packages. The CD is accompanied by a documentary film about the album, its controversial origins, and the tour that followed called Under African Skies. I so need one of these.

Lil Ed & The Blues ImperialsLil Ed & The Blues Imperials have their first album in four years in stores this wek, Jump Start. Lil Ed is the nephew of one of my favorites, J.B. Hutto, and he and his band are one of the premier blues bands on the planet. You are going to want to hear this one!

Brandi Carlile releases Bear Creek this week, the eagerly awaited album from the singer/songwriter. Our pal Stephanie has reviewed it and she's already working up a review of Rhett Miller's new album The Dreamer, which she's been previewing for us.

Singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin and former Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh each have solo albums out this week, both after having been away for awhile. Walsh's new set is called Analog Man while Colvin's latest for Nonesuch is called All Fall Down. Colvin is a favorite and I'm going to get around to scoring a copy of her album. I wish it was today.

Kids, there are even more treasures coming out this week and there are more in store for June. Take a peak and tell us what excites you this week!
