New Music Tuesday: Lemmy, Yanni, & Big Shanty...

One of these releases is perfect for your Valentine's Day celebrations...

Blame it on the cold meds I'm hopped up on but I actually thought it would be funny to do a Letterman parody of the Uma/Oprah bit, substituting Lemmy/Yanni. Blame the cold meds and the recording industry for a second week of titles that are lacking in interest for me. Yes, there are new sets from Yanni and Motorhead. I'd go with Lemmy.

There's also a Miles Davis Bitches Brew Live set on the roster this week, which offers three previously unreleased tracks from one of his Newport preformances as well as the 37th installment of Now That's What I Call Music, which is actually not what I would call it at all. I'd go with Miles.

There's also a 2-CD set from Big Shanty called Collection, and it offers up songs from across this eclectic, renegade bluesman's career. The songs have been remastered and some of these have been out of print or hard to find even for those who have following him for a while. I use the term bluesman and it applies but traditionalists beware! These songs are not authentic Delta ruminations. Rock and funk are enthusiastically fused to his blues roots.

And there you have it, folks. Yanni. Lemmy. Shanty. I'm going to crawl back into my grave until next week, when I hope to either be fully dead or healed. I don't care which…
