If you've glanced at your calendar at all this week, then you know that tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which means that this piece that you're reading was posted yesterday, because we're off today. Woo-hoo! Three-day weekend!!!
Fresh tracks from Heartless Bastards, Elle King, Kacey Musgraves, John Prine, Emmylou, Linda, & Dolly... just in time for the 4th of July. God bless 'Murica!
Roxette have had a busy year - a 30th anniversary album, 25th anniversary of "It Must Have Been Love" appearing in Pretty Woman, and they are currently embarking on a world tour. Check out the setlist from their May date at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam here - it's basically a hit parade of pop classics!
New this week in the Rhino Room at iTunes:
Harry Chapin, Classic Hits of Harry Chapin: This isn't the first Harry Chapin hits collection, and - let's put all our cards on the table, shall we? - it probably won't be the last. It is, however, a solid compilation, and one that's a bit more streamlined than The Gold Medal Collection while offering decidedly more material than our Hi-Five set. In other words, if you don't have any Chapin in your collection, this is a quick and easy way to fix that situation.
