SHOW-BIZ BLUES IN A TWO-PRONGED CROWN

There are detailes appeared on the FLEETWOOD MAC rarities album “Show-Biz Blues” to be out in April on Receiver Records as a sequel to "The Vaudeville Years".

Here’s a songlist:

“Soul Dressing”, “If You Want To Be Happy” and “Outrage” are actually not MAC songs but PETER B’s LONNERS (Pete Bardens, Peter Green, Dave Ambrose and Mick Fleetwood). The first CD has a slow blues song in which Jeremy Kirwan plays piano and sings lead vocals while Peter Green plays lead guitar. “Long Grey Mare” has a lead guitar rather than a harp. The second CD has two previously unreleased songs from the Boston Tea Party Club – “Black Magic Woman” and “Jumping At Shadows” while the remainder is from a BBC radio broadcast.

SUN RISES

Legendary Sun Records, famous for discovering Elvis Presley, approaches the label’s 50th anniversary. To celebrate the date some well-known rockers join forces.

Paul McCartney together with Elvis’ original band mates, guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, recorded a version of Presley’s first hit “That’s All Right (Mama)” for a Sun tribute album to be out this summer. Also the album features Bob Dylan (Red Cadillac And A Black Moustache”), THE WHO (“It’ll Be Me”), Jimmy Page with Robert Plant (“My Bucket’s Got A Hole In It”) and Jeff Beck and Chrissie Hynde (“Mystery Train”). Beside them we’re to hear Mark Knopfler, Kid Rock, Van Morrison, Sheryl Crow, THE ROOTS, Elton John, AEROSMITH, BON JOVI and Rod Stewart.

There will be a documentary as well, that includes footage from the album’s recording sessions and offer a look at the history of the label that launched the careers of Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and many others.

PURPLIER AND PURPLIER

Joe Lynn Turner is currently working on his new album to be released in May. Meanwhile, another PURPLE man, Glenn Hughes has finished recording the new rock album which is being mixed now.

Once Glenn will return from his forthcoming US tour, he and Joe Lynn are to start their joint effort as it was promised some months ago.

MURDER ON THE LOOSE AGAIN

The BLUE MURDER re-union is likely to happen. There are intensive talks between original players guitarist John Sykes, bassman Tony Franklin and drummer god Carmine Appice. Still no dates and venues but the possibility seems to be firm enough.
