New Album Releases, 10-9-2007: Kid Rock, Debbie Harry, LeAnn Rimes
The biggest name album this week comes from Kid Rock. The cocky one now bills himself as the Rock N Roll Jesus. Generally, he ain't all that as any kind of musician. Still though, he did have a name making classic hit back with "Bawitdaba," all the more memorable when used as the soundtrack for the climactic scene of the infamous pilot of The Shield.

Deborah Harry Blondie photoDebbie Harry has the first album under her own name in some 14 years, Necessary Evil. Every note I've seen about this album has been very positive. Ms Blondie is now 62 years old, but thankfully she's not making pointless albums of covers of oldies or such. Sounds like she's still trying to push herself creatively, God bless her.

LeAnn Rimes has never much impressed me musically, but she's about the hottest chick in country music. The bits of her new album Family that I've heard sound like typical modern country pop music radio product. Still, you got to give the girl credit for her work ethic. At the age now of 25, by my counting this is her 15th album.

Hey Grandma, you're so young. Moby Grape, the eponymous debut from this San Francisco band, should have been a big deal, but the band never took off commercially. For my money though, I'd take them over their contemporaries in the Grateful Dead on the basis of superior songwriting, for starters. Their songs still sound fresh and tight, particularly the opening salvo "Hey Grandma."

Sundazed Music Inc has a new re-issue with bonus tracks, and a couple of other Grape albums as well. I'm glad to see what appear to be good re-issues of this classic and under appreciated group. On the other hand, I'm less than impressed with the $18 selling price for a CD that costs less than a buck to make, for an album that should by rights already be in the public domain.
