No Better Than This
No Better Than This is the 21st album by American singer-songwriter and musician John Mellencamp. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the album was released on August 17, 2010. It was recorded at several historic locations throughout the United States. The title track was the album's first single and was sent to multiple radio formats on June 28, 2010.
Mellencamp said that the album is "as American folk as I've ever been". He also told Rolling Stone in July 2009 that he is not concerned whether or not there's a large audience for such a raw, simple record. "I am done being a rock star", Mellencamp said. "I have no interest in that, in having the biggest concerts. I have only one interest: to have fun while we're doing this and maybe have something that somebody might discover."
Rolling Stone placed No Better Than This at No. 12 on its list of the best albums of 2010.
Embracing Light EP
The Wind is the twelfth and final studio album by American singer-songwriter Warren Zevon. The album was released on August 26, 2003, by Artemis Records. Zevon began recording the album shortly after he was diagnosed with inoperable pleural mesothelioma, and it was released just two weeks before his death on September 7, 2003. The album was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. "Disorder in the House", performed by Zevon and Bruce Springsteen, won Best Rock Vocal Performance. Songs from the album were nominated for an additional three Grammys.
Back on Top
Back on Top is the twenty-seventh studio album by Northern Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was released in 1999 by Point Blank.
This album marks a slight return to the forms of music he is most known for: blues and R&B. Upon the album's release, Rolling Stone reviewed it as "one Monet and nine Norman Rockwells", the "Monet" being "When the Leaves Come Falling Down" which it called a masterpiece.
The 29 January 2008 reissued and remastered version of the album contains two bonus tracks: an alternative take of "Philosopher's Stone" and a new arrangement of Fats Domino's song, "Valley of Tears".
Bob Dylan's latest album Tempest achieves something rather unique: it's simultaneously an easy and challenging listen. The album is constructed from the same listenable mix of rock, country-folk, blues and Tin Pan Alley pop that defines his output since the renaissance-commencing Time Out of Mind. This time around, however, Dylan sculpts this mix into a somber, open-ended backdrop for some of the most epic, as well as darkest, storytelling he's tackled in decades. Five cuts extend over seven minutes, with the all-verse-no-chorus title track (a sinking-ship tale stained in gore and misery) falling just shy of 14. Closing out Tempest is "Roll on John," a tribute to fellow '60s icon John Lennon. That said, the tune's imagery and metaphor is ambiguous enough to conclude that Dylan is meditating upon his own mortality as well.
Highway Companion is the third and final solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Tom Petty. It was released on July 25, 2006, and charted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album was produced by former Traveling Wilburys bandmate Jeff Lynne, who also produced Petty’s highly acclaimed first solo album, Full Moon Fever, as well as the Heartbreakers' next album Into the Great Wide Open. Petty released the album through Rick Rubin's American Recordings label and Warner Bros. Records, where Petty has had a record contract since his second solo album, Wildflowers. The tracks "Saving Grace" and "Big Weekend" were released July 4, 2006 on the iTunes Music Store. It ended up being Petty's only album for American Recordings, as that label moved to Columbia Records distribution in 2007; Warner Bros. retained the rights to Petty, eventually reassigning him to subsidiary label Reprise Records.
A streaming version of the album was available on numerous websites before its release. The iTunes release of the album contained extras: a live version of "Saving Grace", the video for "Saving Grace" and an interactive media booklet.
Collapse Into Now
Collapse into Now is the 15th and final studio album by the American alternative rock band R.E.M., released on March 7, 2011, on Warner Bros. Produced by Jacknife Lee, who previously worked with the band on Accelerate, the album was preceded by the singles, "It Happened Today," "Mine Smell Like Honey", "Überlin" and "Oh My Heart".
Regarding the album's title, lead singer Michael Stipe noted, "It's the final thing I sing, the last song on the record before the record goes into a coda and reprises the first song. In my head, it's like I'm addressing a nine-year-old and I'm saying, 'I come from a faraway place called the 20th century. And these are the values and these are the mistakes we've made and these are the triumphs. These are the things that we held in the highest esteem. These are the things to learn from."
As of September 2011, the album had sold 142,000 copies in the United States. At the time of the band's breakup, bassist Mike Mills noted that the album's lyrical content contained "indications" that the band were planning to split.

The Rolling Stones
Stripped is an album by The Rolling Stones released in November 1995 after the Voodoo Lounge Tour. It contains six live tracks and eight studio recordings. The live tracks were taken from four 1995 performances, at three small venues, and include a cover of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", which was the first single from the album. The remaining eight tracks were acoustic studio re-recordings of songs from the Stones' previous catalogue, the exception being a cover of Willie Dixon's "Little Baby". The studio performances were recorded "live," i.e., without overdubs.
Unplugged... And Seated
Unplugged...and Seated is a live album released by British musician Rod Stewart on 24 May 1993. It is Stewart's second live album and his first appearance on MTV Unplugged. The album was released by Warner Bros. Records. The unplugged versions of "Have I Told You Lately" by Van Morrison, "Reason to Believe", "Having a Party", and "People Get Ready" were released as singles, with "Have I Told You Lately" and "Having a Party" reaching success as singles. A special collector's edition was released in March 2009 on Rhino Records. This two-disc package included the DVD of the MTV performance with 13 songs while the CD contained 17 tracks including two songs not on the original 1993 release.
12 Gardens Live
12 Gardens Live is the fourth live album by American singer/songwriter Billy Joel during a former record run of twelve sold-out concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City in early 2006. It was released on June 13, 2006.
Although some of the singer's best known hits are on the album, many of them are transposed into a different key to preserve Joel's deepening voice for the duration of the tour. This is also the first time Joel's signature song "Piano Man" has appeared on a live album.
Out of the Box
Rattle And Hum
Rattle and Hum is a hybrid live/studio album by Irish rock band U2, and a companion rockumentary film directed by Phil Joanou. The album was produced by Jimmy Iovine and was released on 10 October 1988, while the film was distributed by Paramount Pictures and was released on 27 October 1988. Following the breakthrough success of the band's previous studio album, The Joshua Tree, the Rattle and Hum project captures their continued experiences with American roots music on the Joshua Tree Tour, further incorporating elements of blues rock, folk rock, and gospel music into their sound. A collection of new studio tracks, live performances, and cover songs, the project includes recordings at Sun Studios in Memphis and collaborations with Bob Dylan, B.B. King, and Harlem's New Voices of Freedom gospel choir.
Although Rattle and Hum was intended to represent the band paying tribute to rock legends, some critics accused U2 of trying to place themselves amongst the ranks of these artists. Critical reception to both the album and the film was mixed; one Rolling Stone editor spoke of the album's "excitement", another described it as "misguided and bombastic".

Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets is a compilation album by American rock singer–songwriter Bob Seger. The double-disc album was released on November 21, 2011 and contains 26 remastered tracks from throughout Seger's career, which spans more than four decades.

The Band is the second studio album by the Band, released on September 22, 1969. It is also known as The Brown Album. According to Rob Bowman's liner notes for the 2000 reissue, The Band has been viewed as a concept album, with the songs focusing on people, places and traditions associated with an older version of Americana. Thus, the songs on this album draw on historic themes for "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "King Harvest" and "Jawbone".

Live At The Point
Live at the Point is a live album by Irish folk singer Christy Moore, released in 1994. The album was recorded at the Point Theatre in Dublin over a course of a number of concerts in 1994.
Reminiscing on the concerts, Moore himself comments on his website: "I played to 50,000 over 12 nights. Me and my guitar. Weird. I’d be totally fucked after it. The cigar smoke was getting to me a bit. Some of the backroom boys were startin’ to lose the plot and believe their own publicity. I was believin’ in False Gods and that is bothersome and dangerous..."
Searching For Sugar Man (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Sixto Rodriguez has one of the more unlikely comeback stories in rock 'n' roll history. In the early '70s, he released a pair of albums, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality, which won him critical acclaim (press heralded him as a "Latin Bob Dylan") but which were commercial flops, sending him back into workaday obscurity in his native Detroit. Unbeknownst to him, however, his albums sold hundreds of thousands of copies in South Africa over the next decade, making him an absentee star there as big as the Beatles or Elvis. In America, he remained an unknown until Seattle archival label Light in the Attic re-issued Rodriguez's two LPs in 2008 and 2009. The new documentary Searching for Sugar Man follows two South African fans who go looking for their folk hero, and the soundtrack features sparse, psychedelic folk selections from his two albums.

Stockholm is the debut solo album by American singer Chrissie Hynde, lead singer of The Pretenders. It was released on June 10, 2014. It features several guests such as Canadian musician Neil Young and former tennis player John McEnroe.
Live is a double live album released by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac in 1980. It was the first live album from the then-current line-up of the band, and the next would be The Dance from 1997. The album was certified gold by the RIAA in November 1981.
Live consists of recordings taken primarily from the 1979-1980 Tusk Tour, together with a few from the earlier Rumours Tour of 1977. Two songs were recorded at a Paris soundcheck and three at a performance at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium "for an audience of friends and road crew."
Of particular note are three new songs - Christine McVie's "One More Night", Stevie Nicks' "Fireflies", and a well-harmonized backstage rendition of The Beach Boys' "The Farmer's Daughter". The latter two were released as singles; "Fireflies" reached the top 60 in the US, while "The Farmer's Daughter" reached the top 10 in Austria. "Fireflies" was Nicks' rumination on the tumultuous recording of the "Tusk" album and her observance that the band stayed intact nevertheless. Her lyrics referred to band members as the "five fireflies." "Don't Let Me Down Again" is a song from the Buckingham Nicks album.

Nudie Books and Frenchies
Backspacer is the ninth studio album by the American rock band Pearl Jam, released on September 20, 2009. The band members started writing instrumental and demo tracks in 2007, and got together in 2008 to work on an album. It was recorded from February through April 2009 with producer Brendan O'Brien, who'd worked on every Pearl Jam album except their 1991 debut Ten and 2006's self-titled record—although this was his first production credit since 1998's Yield. Material was recorded in Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California and O'Brien's own Southern Tracks Recording in Atlanta, Georgia. The album—the shortest of the band's career—features lyrics with a more optimistic look than the politically infused predecessors Riot Act and Pearl Jam, something frontman Eddie Vedder attributed to the election of Barack Obama.
The band released the album through its own label Monkeywrench Records with worldwide distribution by Universal Music Group via a licensing agreement with Island Records.

This Is Our House
The Next Day
Starting in 2002, David Bowie released two excellent albums in quick succession with old friend Tony Visconti (the brooding Heathen and the more rocking Reality) that showcased a refreshed and reinvigorated artist. Neither of these were the reputation-changers they deserved to be but funny how emergency heart surgery and a decade spent out of the public eye reverses the blasé attitudes of both public and press.
Taken as a complete experience, The Next Day comes off as a rebellion against everything in current pop. The album was recorded very quickly, without fuss (which, truth to tell, is the usual Bowie way of working) and the songs don't outstay their welcome. Instead of riding on endless grooves provided by industry insiders, Bowie once again works with Visconti and gathers old friends on songs that have a jagged, live-in-the-studio feel. Records may just be promos for monster, money-making tours now but Bowie isn't doing concerts. The internet gives us non-stop celebrity culture, but Bowie isn't talking—so there aren't any interviews with the warm, witty Cockney to contrast against the regal, iconic alien.
Spiky and agitated without coming off as bitter, the album hurtles out of the gate with the title track, slows down on the caustic "Dirty Boys" and jumbles celebrity and mortality on "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)." The majority of the songs here are lean rockers, with Station to Station's Earl Slick juggling the lead guitar slot with David Torn. Sometimes the songs brush past previous works (is that the drum intro to "Five Years" ending "You Feel So Lonely You Could Die"?) but this is an album about the rush to a future we know isn't going to end well for any of us. The elegiac love song "Where Are We Now?" treats memories like the walking dead and holds on to loved ones in the here and now. David Bowie doesn't pretend to have any answers with The Next Day but he still pushes ahead because that is what artists do -- they create. Instead of leaving you feeling empty, listening to this dark album is a strangely satisfying, enlivening experience. – Nick Dedina, Google Play
