New Music Tuesday

There is no June Swoon when it comes to new music- it's another week loaded with good stuff you need to add to your collection.

First up, we've been talking about Pat Metheny's new CD What It's All About a lot over the past couple weeks and now you can find out what it's all about for yourself. Check out my review, which features a video of Metheny performing one of the songs from the album. I think you're going to like this one. I certainly did.

Paul McCartney is reissuing McCartney and McCartney II, both remastered at Abbey Road Studios by the folks who did the fantastic job on The Beatle remasters. Each title is coming out in a slew of packaging options with extra goodies folded in. I chose the 2-CD editions of both titles and they are on the way.

Matt Schofield's new album Anything But Time is also out today and is also on its way to my house right now. I lost track of him after Ear To The Ground, an album I mostly liked. I'm looking forward to checking this one out.

Guitar great Rory Gallagher's catalog is being remastered and reissued as well. Several of his early sets are being released today at BlindedBySound's Greg Barbrick has already given them a listen and has this to say about them.
