New Music Tuesday

We have a HUGE week of new releases this week and I want to talk about a lot of them so settle in and let's revel in the joy of a loaded New Music Tuesday!

First up, a guilty pleasure moment. I probably won't buy it but I'd be lying if I didn't admit I considered it. The first concert I attended alone – well, with a friend but not my parents – was Whitesnake on the Slip Of The Tongue tour in '89 or '90 at the Seattle Center Coliseum. The band is releasing a live CD/DVD package from that tour of their performance at Donington and I can't help but want just a little to revisit and remember that moment. I won't do it, but…

Elsewhere, we've got new music from Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. Both have been successful artists in their own right but now this husband and wife have decided to consolidate those skills, forming Tedeschi Trucks Band. Very good friend of the site Donald Gibson sat down with them to chat about this new record- highly recommended reading.

The Soul Of John Black has a new album this week and I've already reviewed it for the site. It's called Good Thang and I have a feeling fans of Black Joe Lewis and Sharon Jones & Dap Kings might like this as well. You should check it out.

Watermelon Slim has teamed up with Super Chikan and the two have a record called Okiesippi Blues (Oklahoma and Mississippi, their respective home states). Slim has been one of the most honored bluesmen of the decade and Super Chikan has seen his following grow of late as well.

Sony/Legacy is re-issuing a slew of Paul Simon's discography this week and I believe they're going to re-release them all over the next year. The earliest albums are coming out this week, each appended by a bonus track or two.

Tommy Castro becomes the second (that I know of) to release a live album from the Legendary Rhythm And Blues Cruise. Castro is a huge part of these packages each year. He appeared on Joe Louis Walker's Blues Conspiracy and Walker returns the favor, appearing on Presents the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue - Live!, as does Rick Estrin and a slew of others.

I remember when our British friends tried turning the Arctic Monkeys into The Beatles, making them one of the world's fastest, hottest, biggest selling bands ever. They're releasing a new record this week called Suck It And See, and I'm betting it doesn't set sales records but might still be worth a listen or two.
