How Will the Wolf Survive? by Los Lobos

Album Review:

As the major label debut for Los Lobos, How Will the Wolf Survive? helped the group garner recognition in part due to their willingness to mix music styles such as rock and roll, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and more. Rolling Stone placed this release at #30 on the list of 100 greatest albums of the 1980s and in addition to the title track, features great songs such as Don’t Worry Baby, A Matter of Time, I Got Loaded, Evangeline, Lil’ King of Everything, and more. One of the classic $3.99 albums available right now on Amazon.

Last Train To Kitty Hawk by Balsam Range

Album Review:

You will find Bluegrass Country at its best on the Last Train To Kitty Hawk from Balsam Range, the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Association award winners for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year. This five member group consists of Buddy Melton, Darren Nicholson, Tim Surrett, Caleb Smith, and Dr. Marc Pruett and just one listen and you’ll know that this is one talent group of musicians with a passion for what they are doing. Prime members can listen to three of the songs as part of their membership but the whole album is one of the best examples of Newgrass available.

<Tween Central: Just the Hits by Various artists>

Album Review:

Another Freebie Sunday and this time we have something for the younger crowd or tweens of the family. Tween Central: Just the Hits from Bema Media features 10 modern Christian cover songs performed by iShine artists and others. They even threw in a cover of Collective Soul’s hit from the 90’s Shine. Nice free set of music that both parents and lids can enjoy.

Quah by Jorma Kaukonen

Album Review:

I think that it is time for a relaxing folksy Saturday and what better way to enjoy the time then with the debut album Quah by Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane fame. Originally release in 1974, this most recent version from BMG features three previously unreleased songs. This Folk Rock classic is perfect for any fans of guitar music and one of the standout albums from this month’s $5 group.

Medicine by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors

Album Review:

It’s always nice to see newly released albums on the $5 album list and even nicer when the featured album is as good as Medicine by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. A great follow up to the popular Chasing Someday (Deluxe Edition) (Available for $9.49), their latest effort has yielded wonderful songs like Here We Go, Sisters Brothers, Avalanche, I’ve Got You, Shine Like Lightning, American Beauty, and more for one of the best folk albums released in 2015 and may soon be recognized as the band’s best..

Anastasia [Music From The Motion Picture] by AnastasiA

Album Review:

Music can add so much to the powerful story telling of a movie. Take the 1997 animated film Anastasia, trying to tell the story without songs like Journey To The Past, In The Dark Of The Night, and Once Upon A December just would not do it justice. If you are looking to rekindle your enjoyment of this film, now is the time as Anastasia [Music From The Motion Picture] is one of the 400+ $5.00 albums this month.

Bring On The Night (Live) by Sting

Album Review:

We light to highlight some of the great $5.00 albums that are available each month and today we will take a look at Bring On The Night (Live) by Sting which was originally recorded in 1986 on what would become a double cd showcasing his early solo work and most amazingly as a tribute to the album as a whole, it hit reached number 16 on the UK Album Charts despite not featuring any hit singles. If you like a live treat from the past, have a listen and consider adding this to your collection.

Canciones ’84-’96 by Héroes Del Silencio

Album Review:

We don’t discriminate here at mp3 planet. We try to offer all sorts of deals across many genres. Today, we are pulling a collection from the eighties and nineties in Spain. Héroes Del Silencio combine a little Pop, Celtic and Metal for a sound all their own and the compilation Canciones ’84-’96 features 29 of their best. Have a quick listen and see if they deserve a spot in your library.
