Raveis Kole Spread Their Wings With John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery”

Songwriters Laurie Raveis and Dennis Kole of duo Raveis Kole are proud to release “Angel From Montgomery” on 8/28 along with a video via their digital platforms. The Bellingham, WA (an hour north of Seattle) based duo have always loved the classic John Prine song, and all that it envelopes as well as being a part of their live shows.

As with their last single, “HELP ONE ANOTHER (WE ALL CAN),” Raveis Kole recorded it with the help of Jeff Silverman in Nashville with a solid group of musicians backing them like noted accordion player Jeff Taylor and well-known backing vocalists, Kim Fleming, Gayle Stuart Mayes and Kim Mont. During last year’s AmericanaFest conference they began the process of recording. They revisited the song this past spring and summer putting the final touches on it. 

While staying on course with the melody and the structure of the song Laurie and Dennis took a little bit of creative license to add some flair.

“Our goal in covering “Angel From Montgomery” was to honor and preserve the genius of the original, while also adding in a fresh perspective on how to approach the song,” say Dennis and Laurie. Their version carries a lot of Celtic influences with the fingerpicked acoustic guitar work in the first half of the song. The rhythmic transition after the 3rd verse brings in a new, funky, New Orleans type of pulse that is reinforced by the background vocals. This is then further reinforced by the counterpoint of the mandolin and banjo as the song draws to its high energy conclusion, before segueing back to the original outro.  

“Angel From Montgomery” was written by John Prine and released on New Year’s Day 1971. Despite being a young man, he wrote it from the perspective of an older woman who wants to escape her unhappy life from her marriage, home and town. The tone of the song is that of “a song about a middle-aged woman who feels older than she is…” Prine once said.  Many have touted that his perspective was near perfect, and when Bonnie Raitt recorded it in 1974, it changed the course of the elder statesman’s career. Prine went to have a long illustrious career filled with awards and accolades from fans and his peers as one of the best until his death in April 2020.

Laurie and Dennis met eight years at Bigfork Guitar Festival in Montana, and they instantly clicked as songwriters and partners that created a harmonious setting for their shows. They have built a solid fanbase that loves to gather around to hear Laurie’s honey-soaked voice matched with the rich jewel tone voice of Dennis’ guitars. Raveis Kole has performed all over the US, Canada, and the UK and has opened for Cory Henry, the Edgar Winter Band, and the Wailers and many more. They have released two albums and a couple of singles. In 2018, their album, Electric Blue Dandelion – Nashville Sessions, debuted on Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #11, spinning on 170+ radio stations across 13 countries and five continents, and the duo is a 3x Hollywood Music in Media Award Nominee. 



Watch Queen + Adam Lambert Perform ‘The Show Must Go On’ From Upcoming Concert Film

On October 2nd, Queen + Adam Lambert are releasing Live Around the World, a concert album and DVD/Blu-ray taped at various stops on their tours throughout the past six years. Check out a preview of “The Show Must Go On” from a gig at London’s 02 Arena on July 4th, 2018.

The song originally appeared on Queen’s 1991 LP Innuendo, which was released just months before Freddie Mercury died. “Even though we were all aware of Freddie’s impending tragedy, we had some inspired and joyful times in the studio, making the Innuendo album,” Queen guitarist Brian May says in a statement. ” We didn’t speak much about Freddie’s illness — he just wanted to get on with ‘business as usual’ as far as possible.”

“But already there was only a day or two per week when Freddie was well enough to come in and work with us,” he continues. “We grabbed those precious moments and made the most of them. I’d been working on ‘The Show Must Go On’ as an idea, but I was uncertain whether the title was too obvious. Freddie heard it and loved it and dismissed any thoughts that there was a problem with the chorus or the title. He wanted to work on it.”

The group never had a chance to perform the song live with Mercury, but in 1992 they played it with Elton John and Tony Iommi at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at London’s Wembley Stadium. They played it again with Elton John at a 1997 Paris event at the Théâtre national de Chaillot, which wound up being the last time that bassist John Deacon performed with the band before retiring from public life.

It was in the setlist nearly every time that Queen + Paul Rodgers played between 2005 and 2008 and it’s been in the mix at Queen + Adam Lambert shows since they started gigging together in 2012.

The band was supposed to spend the summer on the road in Europe, but they had to delay those plans until 2021 because of the pandemic. During the downtime, May severely injured his gluteus maximus “in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening,” and in May, he was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack.

“He’s very much on the mend,” drummer Roger Taylor told Rolling Stone in July. “We’re in daily contact. It was quite a scare. He had a real scare. It’s been strange. We were struck doubly. Our manager had a pretty major heart attack, too. It’s been a very weird year for us in all kinds of ways.”



Suzanne Vega Covers Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side”

From An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, her next album, coming on September 11.

Lou Reed & Suzanne Vega

“I thought, ‘I’m from New York City, I can sing this song,” said Suzanne Vega, and then sang her cover of “Walk On The Wild Side,” the classic song written by her friend, the late Lou Reed. Now it is one of two singles from her upcoming album An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, which is being released on September 11. Recorded live at the Café Carlyle in New York City, it’s a celebration in song about her personal and musical relationship with the city.

“It is always a pleasure to play at the Café Carlyle in New York City,” said Suzanne, “where this album was recorded. It is a small exclusive club that has hosted legends from Eartha Kitt to Judy Collins, and is also known to be the place where Jackie Kennedy met Audrey Hepburn. I love it for its bohemian old-world glamour.”

“I decided it would be fun to perform a New York-themed show there with songs inspired by New York City or for which New York provided the backdrop, including `Walk on the Wild Side’ by my late, great friend, Lou Reed—a song I rarely heard him sing himself.”

On An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, she is backed by longtime guitarist and musical director Gerry Leonard, who also produced the album, and also bassist Jeff Allen and keyboardist Jamie Edwards. Recorded in early 2019, it includes “Marlene on the Wall,” “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner. There’s also “New York Is My Destination” from Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers, her one-woman play about the Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers.

Watch: Tom Petty’s ‘Wildflowers’ Comprehensive Collection Due in October

Wildflowers, Tom Petty’s 1994 solo album rightfully hailed as his solo masterpiece, is getting its long-awaited reissue. Wildflowers & All The Rest is set to be released on October 16 via Warner Records. Half the songs on Wildflowers were left on the cutting room floor, with Tom writing more songs than he could release at the time.  “I broke through to something else. My personal life came crashing down, and it derailed me for a while. But I was at the top of my game during that record,” he told Rolling Stone in 2014. 

Petty’s family, bandmates, and collaborators are fulfilling the vision he had for a comprehensive project. Daughters Adria and Annakim Petty, wife Dana, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, and engineer/co-producer Ryan Ulyate have curated a compilation of previously unheard tracks, solo demos, and live performances they call “many, many hours of pure sonic joy.”

Quiet Riot’s Frankie Banali Dead at 68

Frankie Banali, who played drums on Quiet Riot’s best-selling albums and kept the band going for nearly four decades, died Thursday at the age of 68. He had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer last April. The band’s agent, Mark Hyman, confirmed the news to Rolling Stone.

Banali joined Quiet Riot in 1982, one year before the band released its blockbuster breakthrough album, Metal Health. The singles “Cum On Feel the Noize” and “Metal Health (Bang Your Head)” featured Banali’s hard-hitting drumming, and the group’s mixture of tough heavy-metal riffs and glam-rock sensibilities played well at radio and on the newly launched MTV.

Metal Health became the first heavy-metal record to top the Billboard 200, knocking the Police’s Synchronicity off the charts; it sold more than 6 million copies. Their 1984 follow-up, Condition Critical, was also a big hit, making it to Number 15 on the Billboard 200 and selling more than 1 million copies on the strength of “Mama Weer All Crazee Now.”

“He fought hard until the end,” Dee Snider commented on Twitter. “His playing and rock & roll spirit will live forever.”

“So saddened to hear of the passing of my drumming brother, Frankie Banali,” former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy tweeted. “He fought an incredibly brave battle against cancer and his strength and dignity was truly inspiring.”

The group continued in fits and starts with various lineup changes until the present day, with Banali ending as the only original member to continue in nearly all of the band’s incarnations. Metal Health guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudi Sarzo left the group in 2003, and singer Kevin DuBrow died in 2007. Nevertheless, Banali carried on, and Quiet Riot — with bassist Chuck Wright, who played on two Metal Health tracks — continued recording and touring. The group’s most recent studio album, Hollywood Cowboys, came out last November.

“My hero, mentor, Quiet Riot brother Frankie Banali is now resting in peace and pain free,” Sarzo tweeted. “I will post a follow up in days to come as try to process this unmeasurable loss.”

In addition to Quiet Riot, Banali, who was born on November 14th, 1951 in Queens, New York, played briefly with the members of Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band in rehearsals. He also recorded several albums with W.A.S.P. and cut LPs with former Deep Purple singer and bassist Glenn Hughes and Billy Thorpe, among others. Alongside Vinny Appice, he played drums on the “We Are the World”–style charity single “Stars,” which Ronnie James Dio organized and called Hear ‘n Aid.

“I met Frankie in 1981, when Pat Thrall and myself were preparing to make the Hughes/ Thrall album,” Hughes wrote on Instagram. “We needed a drummer. Trust me, we got way more than a drummer. He was always first to arrive at the rehearsal studio in Burbank, and first to arrive at United Western Studios, Hollywood, where we were making the record. Our relationship thrived throughout the years. There was no one more honorable, loyal, courageous, and committed to both music and friendships, than Frankie. He was always there for me, through it all, and never wavered.”



The Doors’ Robby Krieger Releases First New Solo Album in 10 Years

The legendary guitarist and songwriter of The Doors and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Robby Krieger will be releasing his first solo album in 10 years on April 24, 2020. The Ritual Begins At Sundown will be released via his new home at The Players Club, a division of the Mascot Label Group.

The Doors weren’t just one of the most iconic bands of their generation, but one of the most influential bands in rock history and Robby Krieger was responsible for writing some of their biggest hits in ‘Light My Fire,’ ‘Love Me Two Times,’ ‘Touch Me’ and ‘Love Her Madly.’

The Ritual Begins At Sundown is a 10 song instrumental record with 9 originals and one cover, the Frank Zappa song ‘Chunga’s Revenge,’ The album features Krieger’s long time writing partner, co-producer and former Zappa bassist Arthur Barrow, and Zappa alumni Tommy Mars (keyboards) and Chad Wackerman (drums). Highly recommended for Zappateers and fans of adventurous guitar histrionics.



Annie – “Dark Hearts”

Norwegian pop singer Annie is returning soon with Dark Hearts, her first full-length album in 11 years. We’ve already heard singles “American Cars” and “The Bomb,” and now she’s sharing the record’s title track.

“It’s an inquiry into family relations … and the ongoing question heredity and environment,” Annie says in a statement. “If you always end up in trouble … is it related to your family and the past, or is it simply because you always make fucked up choices … no matter what, it’s got the bass.”

“We can’t escape who we are,” Annie sings over the pulsing track. Listen to it below.

The self-released Dark Hearts is out 10/16.



Listen: Elvis Costello Releases “We Are All Cowards Now”

Today sees the release of Elvis Costello‘s “We Are All Cowards Now,” from a forthcoming album called Hey Clockface. The album is scheduled for an October 30th release date via Concord Records.

Before the pandemic, Costello recorded several songs in Helsinki, alone in the studio and at the helm of every instrument. “We Are All Cowards” is the third advance bulletin from “The Helsinki Sound.” The other two songs from the solo session are “No Flag” and “Hetty O’Hara Confidential.”

‘Hey Clockface’ was recorded in Helsinki, Paris and New York and mixed by Sebastian Krys in Los Angeles. Of the Paris sessions, Costello states: “I sang live on the studio floor, directing from the vocal booth. We cut nine songs in two days. We spoke very little. Almost everything the musicians played was a spontaneous response to the song I was singing. I’d had a dream of recording in Paris like this, one day.”

Attractions/Imposters keyboardist Steve Nieve, as well as Bill Frisell and Nels Cline make guest appearances on the album.

The motion picture of “We Are All Cowards Now” by Eamon Singer & Arlo McFurlow features images of flowers & pistols; smoke & mirrors; tombstones & monuments; courage & cowardice; peace, love and misunderstanding.
