Focus – X (2012)

New album from the veteran Dutch Art-Rock/Prog band. With their unique Progressive Rock, Focus manifested themselves at the start of the ’70s as the most successful and the most appreciated of all the Dutch Rock exports. The band is still fronted by founder and musical genius Thijs van Leer. A new Focus era has arrived. There is a rejuvenated passion in the new compositions that adorn the album, which features a full scale Roger Dean painting on the cover. Thijs van Leer commented It’s a thrill to have finally completed Focus X; ”We are all ecstatic and looking forward to playing the new material on the forthcoming Focus X Tour. This album -and the following gigs- will surprise the loyal fans. They will hear once again all the classic Focus tunes and they will be surprised at the strength and depth of the new material.

Robbie Fulks – Georgia Hard (2005)

Few country songwriters are both smarter and funnier than Robbie Fulks, though his humor has saddled him with a reputation as a purveyor of smart-aleck novelty fare. Except for the hillbilly hokum of “I’m Gonna Take You Home (And Make You Like Me),” he plays it comparatively straight on Georgia Hard, confirming that he’s a consummate country craftsman in the process. Amid the generous selection of 15 songs, highlights range from the countrypolitan, string-laden “Leave It to a Loser,” on which Fulks channels the soulful sophistication of the late Charlie Rich, to the dance-floor buoyancy of “Each Night I Cry,” which sounds closer to Rodney Crowell. A pair of murder ballads, “Coldwater, Tennessee” and “If They Could Only See Me Now,” show his mastery of the taut, dark narrative, while fans of his sardonic streak will love “Countrier Than Thou.” The musicianship is first-rate throughout, with the instrumental “Right on Redd” showcasing the interplay of guitarist Redd Volkaert with steel guitar legend Lloyd Green. If Nashville decides to return to songs of cheatin’, drinkin’, and killin’, this is an album full of hits just waiting to happen.

The Who – Live at Hull 1970 (2012)

Two CD release, an edited version of the concert originally available in the Super Deluxe Live At Hull box set. Live At Hull is a warts-and-all document – that strange popping sound noticeable at times is the sound of Keith Moon’s frenzied drumstick attack making contact with the overhead mic. But after four decades of being neglected it’s a document to savor, capturing The Who at their performing pinnacle and is presented here in edited form.
