New Music Tuesday New CDs Robbie Robertson, The Kills, Johnny Rawls, Bronwynne Brent, Albert King, Rush, Ray Charles

The first New Music Tuesday of April is a little shallower than last week but there are some good titles I'd like to highlight for you, in particular some albums we've already reviewed.

There is a deluxe edition of Rush's Moving Pictures out this week that includes a DVD. This edition is out this. Be forewarned, Blu-ray users, a deluxe edition with a Blu-ray comes out next month (at least according to what I am seeing at Amazon). This package is being aimed at all you audiophiles out there.

Robbie Robertson's first new album in over a decade comes out this week. It's called How To Become Clairvoyant and features Eric Clapton and Robert Randolph, among others. Clapton plays a lot on this set and even provides a lead vocal. For those of you not placing the name, Robertson was a member of The Band and his work as a guitarist, producer, and songwriter is legendary.

Albert King
The Definitive Albert King

I love The 3 Kings Of The Blues. B.B. is the only one still with us (and I'll see he and Buddy Guy next month at Ryman Auditorium) and is the best known, but Albert and Freddie are every bit his equal when it comes to talent, legacy, and influence. This 2-CD collection gives a considerable overview of Albert's best work, including his vital sides for Memphis' Stax label. Need more information? Check out General Jabbo's review.

Bronwynne Brent
Deep Black Water

Bronwynne is the very talented younger sister of BlindedBySound favorite Eden Brent, the Blues Music Award-winning singer/songwriter/pianist. Bronwynne doesn't follow her sister into the deep water of the blues, swimming in different waters entirely. The musical genes in this family are powerful.

Ray Charles
Live In Concert

Ray Charles was so damn good at everything he did that it's easy to overlook things where he's concerned. One area that may get overlooked by little things like his brilliance as a singer, songwriter, and arranger was his ability onstage. General Jabbo tells us this set was essential when it was originally released and is now even more valuable because it has been expanded with an additional seven songs, bringing the entire performance to disc for the first time.

Johnny Rawls
Memphis Still Got Soul

We mentioned Albert King and his essential sides for Memphis' Stax Records. The influence of the records cut by King and others at that label can be heard throughout this excellent new set from Johnny Rawls.
