Friday sees several important new releases on the rock front. Bob Dylan returns with Fallen Angels, an album of standards that follows in the footsteps of last year’s Shadows in the Night. This time around, Dylan lends his distinct vocals to a dozen songs, among them “It Had to Be You,” “All the Way” and “Young at Heart.”
Dylan’s former Traveling Wilbury companion Tom Petty also has a new set out today but it’s a collaboration with his first band, Mudcrutch. The cleverly titled Mudcrutch 2 is indeed the band’s sophomore set and includes the lead single “Trailer,” along with 10 other tracks.
Eric Clapton also returns with I Still Do. This new effort combines covers with originals and finds Clapton reuniting with Glyn Johns, who produced his smash album Slowhand back in 1977.
Finally, the David Bowie compilation ChangesOneBowie gets a vinyl reissue exactly 40 years to the day since its first release! ChangesOneBowie includes 11 Bowie essentials like “Ziggy Stardust,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fame” and, of course, “Changes.”
