The All-Request Classic Rock Cafe

Daily Specials-Friday

 

*Metallica is offering fans an massive collection of live concert recordings via its LiveMetallica.com website. The band is selling CDs and LPs of every gig it played in 2014, mostly comprising its “Metallica by Request” tours of South America and Europe where fans voted on the set lists. The group will be unrolling the releases in three-album batches each Monday through the end of the year in the order they played the shows, beginning with Bogotá, Colombia. Metallica also will produce a box set of all 27 shows, which will ship in December, just in time for the holiday season.

 

*On October 28th, Paul McCartney’s latest album, “NEW,” will be re-released as a special two-CD/DVD Collector’s Edition in a hard bound book featuring bonus content such as behind the scenes footage, music videos, live recordings, an album documentary feature, and previously unreleased tracks. The two previously unreleased songs “Hell To Pay” and “Demons Dance” were taken from the “NEW” album recording sessions, and the track “Struggle” was previously released only as a Japanese bonus song. Fans also will get to hear live versions of “Save Us,” “New,” “Queenie Eye” and “Everybody Out There” that were recorded at the Tokyo Dome in November of last year.

 

*Sammy Hagar has called off his annual birthday party at his club in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hagar says Hurricane Odile has caused too much damage to the area’s airport and town. His Cabo Wabo Cantina suffered only a little water damage. Hagar says it’s with “an incredibly heavy heart” that he’s decided to call off his Birthday Bash. He’s still trying to find another place big enough to have the party, but he’ll give refunds to fans who want them. Hagar was to play four nights for his Birthday Bash October 7-13.

 

*Billy Idol has been announced as the keynote speaker for the 2014 CBGB Music & Film Festival in New York. The festival will include concerts, film screenings, industry talks, comedy shows, art exhibitions and special performances, October 8-12. Idol will answer questions and perform a short acoustic concert at the CBGB festival headquarters Center 548 in downtown Manhattan October 9th.

*Loverboy will return later this summer with the band’s first album of previously unreleased material in seven years.

The new LP, titled ‘Unfinished Business,’ has been a long time coming in more ways than one: The track listing brings together songs written throughout the band’s career — including one song, ‘Come Undone,’ first penned by guitarist Paul Dean some four decades ago. Befitting the disparate origins of the material, the album was recorded at various locations.

Dean contrasted the group’s current studio method with the painstaking way they cut 1985′s ‘Lovin’ Every Minute of It

Jethro Tull’s ‘A Passion Play’ Getting Deluxe Reissue Treatment

Jethro Tull, 'A Passion Play'
Chrysalis

Jethro Tull‘s 1973 album ‘A Passion Play’ is returning to stores this summer, with a fresh remastering job and loads of bonus material in tow.

Originally released in July 1973, ‘Passion’ served as the proper follow-up to 1972′s smash hit ‘Thick as a Brick,’ and found the band working overtime to come up with new material before a scheduled tour. The pressure was on after initial attempts to record a double LP at the Chateau d’Herouville in France ended in ruin.

Halford will need to cope with that British reserve a little more often in the near future; he can expect to hear a few more screams next month, when Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls‘ arrives in stores.

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Explains ‘Metal God’ Trademark

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford made the news a few years back when word got out that he’d applied for a trademark covering his ‘Metal God’ nickname. During a recent appearance on the long-running BBC talk show ‘Later with Jools Holland,’ he opened up about the reasons why.

“I would never put myself on that pedestal,” explained Halford when Holland broached the subject. “That’s the title the fans started to give me after the famous ‘British Steel’ album, where we had ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight.’” Nevertheless, he added, “It’s something I really cherish, and I don’t want anybody else to be the Metal God but me.”
