Greatest Hits by Heart

Album Review:

It would be difficult to think of great women in Rock without thinking about the Wilson sisters of Heart. These hall of fame rockers have some great hits from the 70s including Barracuda, Crazy On You, Straight On, Magic Man, Heartless, Dog & Butterfly, and more. While you won’t find their hits from the late eighties or more recent, this Greatest Hits collection has some great ones and is currently one of the many $5 albums available on Amazon.

Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

Album Review:

Unabashed rocker Joan Jett has put together quite a reputation and music career. Her fourth studio album with the Blackhearts, Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth was re-released in the late 90s with additional tracks for a nice hard hitting, rock classic including the fun song Cherry Bomb. A nice addition to the $3.99 album set available on Amazon.

Album Review:

We are most of the way through Spring and don’t believe we have featured any spring themed albums. That all changes today with Spring Essentials 2016. Even though the only thing Spring about this album is the title, you’ll get over two hours of Dance & Electronic from Tenor Recordings for just $2.99.

2 Free Latin Albums from Google Play

Alejandro Sanz: Grandes éxitos 1997-2004Café Tacvba: Re

2 Free Latin Albums from Google Play

What’s better than a FREE album for the weekend? How about two free albums for the weekend. Google Play currently has Grandes éxitos 1997-2004 by Alejandro Sanz (winner of fifteen Latin Grammy Awards) and sophomore album Re by Café Tacvba that has been called “the equivalent of the Beatles ‘White Album’ for the rock en español movement” by the New York Times. Don’t worry if you don’t understand Spanish as this may make the albums more enjoyable allowing you to concentrate on other tasks instead of focusing on lyrics. After all, FREE music is FREE music and I’m all for Google keeping the offers coming as these two albums would cost a combined $16 on other sites. Make the most out of your Freebie Friday.

The Who Hits 50 by The Who

Album Review:

Not to be confused with as of yet available The Who 50 Hits, The Who Hits 50 is a full disc containing 21 of Pete Townshend and company’s best like My Generation, I Can See For Miles, Magic Bus, Pinball Wizard, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Baba O’Riley, Who Are You, and more to celebrate the band turning 50 years old. However, one of our favorite who songs did not make the Standard cut. If you want Behind Blues Eyes and 17 additional tracks, you would need to pick up The Who Hits 50 (Deluxe Edition) (Available for $17.49) for more than three times the cost. With that in mind, the standard compilation from a band with so many popular tracks for $5.00 is good enough to hear Peter say: “I call that a bargain, the best I ever had”.

Cobra Entertainment LLC has been busy including more compilations to their product mix. One of their latest additions is The Beethoven Piano Collection containing about four and a half hours of music on 30 tracks from one of the giants of classical music and available for just $0.99 right now.
