Thanks for logging in for this weeks episode. Its chuck full of music, and a little ranting as well. Recorded this one in Vegas again, I think that is 4 episodes now recorded while I was in Vegas this year. That is probably two too many!
Hour 1 – Brand New Sin starts off the show with their single “The Lord Came Down”. These guys mean a lot to me, and so does this album. I began working with the guys after they recorded their independent release DISTILLED, which may be their best record in my opinion. After some touring, we began to work on putting together the material for what would become United State, which I believe is their best sounding release to date, with some incredible songs on it. I was given the credit as executive producer, but I was just one of a great team that helped the band shape these songs. In this hour we have tracks from StoneRider, Pride & Glory, ZZ Top, Free, and Graveyard to name just a few.
Hour 2 – Mountain starts off the hour with their studio version of “Southbound Train” off the original Leslie West MOUNTAIN album. I have Steve Tyler in his pre-Aerosmith band Chain Reaction doing “When I Needed You”, and we debut the title track from the movie “Nothing Left To Fear” which is an incredibly haunting track from Slash and Myles Kennedy. The hour features more music from Cactus, Savatage, Winery Dogs, Voodoo Six, and Walking Papers.
Hour 3 – Well I have a bit of rant that I included in this hour, I hope that I don’t get too much grief for it, but it was well deserved, and just beyond idiotic the silliness that I was listening to. So I get to unload it here, and I feel much better. I have some tracks from Twenty Two Hundred, Ugly Kid Joe, Living Colour, Tesla, Gov’t Mule, and Jake E. Lee, and a lot more!
