If not out already, it soon will be, UK "wunderkind" Toby Lee has a "covers album available - Icons; Vol 1

Co-produced by Oli Brown and Wayne Proctor, who are currently backing Toby on tour supporting Joanne Shaw Taylor in the UK, the album features:-
Green Light Girl - Doyle Bramhall II
Bright Lights - Gary Clarke Jr
Blue On Black - Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Ballad of John Henry - Joe Bonasomthing
Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix
Still Rainin' - Jonny Lang
House Is A Rockin' - Stevie Ray Vaughn
Midnight Blues - Gary Moore
Hideaway - Freddie King
See The Light - Jeff Healey
Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee



I confess to not following this kid prior to Mike's post for his new "covers" album.  I did however get his Aquarius album and the quality of the songs are impressive.  I tacked on his Jonny Lang single, "Lie To Me" which has always been a favorite of mine.  With two greats like Oli Brown and Wayne Proctor involved with his current releases, Toby really delivers on Aquarius.  Darn good stuff and highly recommended.  Thanks Mike for the alert!

July 8th sees Journey release their first album in more than a decade and fifteenth in total, Freedom.: well makes a change from all the in-fighting.... Line-up is Neil Schon, Johnathon Cain, Narada Nichael Walden (drums) Randy Jackson on (bass) and third album with Ariel Pineda on vocals.

Also to look out for in July; Jeff Beck is releasing an album in collaboration with Johnny Depp. Before you get too excited though and expect another Beck-ola or Truth, lets just say that Mr Depp sounds more like an above average, Saturday night, open-mic night at the bar singer than he does Rod Stewart...

September 2nd - Jack J Hutchinson - What Doesn't Kill You EP

Blues-Rock guitarist Jack J Hutchinson unleashes his new studio recording, 'What Doesn’t Kill You', a 4 track EP mixed by legendary producer Kevin Shirley. The new EP marks the first studio recordings from Hutchinson since his critically acclaimed album 'The Hammer Falls' was released earlier this year. It includes new versions of three of the tracks from that album, plus the brand new song 'Days Of Thunder'.

Hutchinson comments: “To be given the opportunity to work with Kevin Shirley was a dream come true. He’s produced some of my favourite artists, including Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden and The Black Crowes, so I jumped at the chance. We recorded the new material in the midst of my recent UK Tour, so me and the band were cooking from being back on the road. Kevin gave the tracks a new sense of energy and power.”

Accompanying the CD version of the EP is a bonus DVD, featuring ‘Behind the Scenes’ footage of the EP recording, plus 6 music videos from 'The Hammer Falls'. “It was fun watching the studio footage back. It captures the nuts and bolts of the songwriting process, and how some of these songs came together. The DVD acts as a nice companion piece to the new EP and also my latest studio album 'The Hammer Falls'.”

Limited CD/DVD set personally signed by Jack, plus free guitar pick

If you missed the Kickstarter campaign for Troy Redfern, then worry not. The campaign was very successful for Troy and the new album, The Wings of Salvation comes out on Sept 23rd: nip over to Troy's website to pre-order from a selection of goodies bundles, and get an idea of where and when he'll be on tour; prolific schedules....

Very interesting group.  Hard to describe their sound other then they're darn talented.
I picked up this album tonight.  Kinda has a Nirvana vibe going on.  Can't tell they ain't from Louisiana.  Thanks Mike for the shout!  I'm liking the song "Bereft" the best so far,

Re: Albums to lookout for in 2022

Another slight, rule-bending mention...

If, like me, you missed the 40th Anniversary re-master release of Jethro Tull's Thick As A Brick. then you're in luck as there's a 50th Annoverdsary release due in October.... Hooray!!!

If you already have the 40th anniversary release, then before you go mad and splash out; this is jut the 40th Anniversary re-packaged., it hasn't had [another] Steven Wilson re-working...
