Hey, progman! I mentioned Triumph's "Magic Power" along with April Wine earlier...

But, I will say that no pop and rock record collector worth his salt should go without having a copy of this on vinyl...And I will say that the album and the single versions differ somewhat, so it's good to have both! 8)



Just a fantastic song! :mrgreen:

Loverboy! Another great group to add to the mix...Forgot about them, but this is good...

Loverboy - The Kid Is Hot Tonite



The very first song off their debut, and what a debut! :D So many bands from our Northern neighbors, too...The ones I listed are just examples of great songs I'd discovered in recent years...

Cool! 8) I love that 80's AOR rock sound...If you dig the sound, here's one I discovered not too long ago...Stan Bush! This is from 2010, by the way...

I have discovered a couple of new singers recently...This guy, who sounds an awful lot like Michael Buble...

Yannick Bovy...

If you like Frank Sinatra or Nat "King" Cole, check him out...

He even does Bruno Mars proud...



and then, there's this girl named Somi...Some interesting jazz music from her...

My favorite re-discovery. Heard it back in the 80's but never got their name. Better late they say.

The Pioneers. Long shot Kick De Bucket..

The most interesting new discoveries for me recently have been two composers in the realm of contemporary classical music: Joep Franssens and Dobrinka Tabakova. Joep Franssens is the Dutch composer of "Harmony of the Spheres", a beautiful composition for mixed choir and string ensemble with which I fell in love upon first hearing. Dobrinka Tabakova was born in Bulgaria and works in England. Her Concerto for Violoncello and Strings contains music that is alternately rhythmically vigorous, longingly poignant, and beautifully serene.

My new favorite discoveries aren't actually "new" at all...They're not by a "new" artist, either! In fact, I have been listening to the earliest and latest records of a legend who recently passed away...I'm talking about the one and only...Glenn Frey! First off, until recently, I did not know he was born in Detroit...Another one here in Michigan that we can claim as our own! :D In fact, he started a Byrds-like garage band here in 1966, known as The Four Of Us...The very next year, he formed The Mushrooms, and put out these two songs...Glenn is on lead vocals, and both of them were written by the talented Bob Seger!




Then, in my searching today, I discovered he had recorded a great standards album back in 2012 called "After Hours"...Being a skeptical Eagles fan, I wondered how he would fare doing the Great American Songbook...He's actually not as bad as you might think, and he's channeling Brian Wilson a little on some of the numbers...Here, listen for yourself...





WOW! A very classy affair! :shock:

Even better is the fact that it came out on 180g vinyl on the Music Direct label!

I'm going to have to look for this now!! =D>
