Bruce Springsteen releases his twenty-fourth album ‘Working On A Dream’ on January 27 2009, which was recorded with the E Street Band.
The songwriter recorded and mixed the songs at Southern Tracks in Atlanta (as well as additional studio time in LA, NY and NJ) and the LP includes 12 songs, plus two bonus tracks – full tracklisting is further down the page.
Speaking of the album, Bruce Springsteen says: ‘Towards the end of recording [last album] ‘Magic,’ excited by the return to pop production sounds, I continued writing. When my friend producer Brendan O’Brien heard the new songs, he said, ‘Let’s keep going.’”
“Over the course of the next year, that’s just what we did, recording with the E Street Band during the breaks on last year’s tour. All the songs were written quickly, we usually used one of our first few takes, and we all had a blast making this one from beginning to end.”

After more than 20 years, the first volume of Young’s career-spanning box set is finally coming out. The 10-disc set (available in Blu-ray for $432 or DVD for $345, and eventually in CD and download formats) is built around an interactive timeline that allows users to access hundreds of hours of audio and video, ranging from Young’s high school band through 1972′s Harvest. “There’s photos, there’s original lyrics, there’s all the materials that make up a career,” says Larry Johnson, the set’s producer. So when is Vol. 2 due? “Now that we’ve done the format,” says Young, “it’ll be quicker.”

In the meantime here is a version of “Powderfinger” from the postponed 1977 album Chrome Dreams which may appear and a current favourite of mime “A Man Needs A Maid”

Aye but how many people will be able to afford it and how many people will be satisfied with the chosen format……not me for one on either score
The BBC has had a change of heart about axeing the Christmas Top Of The Pops by announcing a double bill over the festive period.
As well as the traditional hour-long Christmas Day edition, BBC1 will also show – for the first time – a New Year’s Eve edition of the programme. The programme will give an overview of the year. Just last month the BBC said the programme would not be screened this year and would instead be replaced by episodes of the archive series TOTP2.
Jay Hunt, controller of BBC1, said: “With shows on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, Top Of The Pops has never been bigger.
“The shows will form the centrepiece of a massive musical offering during the festive season that we hope viewers are really going to enjoy.”
It’s not all good news though – Fearne Cotton will be hosting the shows. Top Of The Pops was pulled from the schedules in 2006 but the Christmas edition was allowed to live on, on their own merits, until the recent announcement that they were to be taken off air.
Now this takes me back to short trousers and the school disco (before they were made palatible via a dose of vodka in the toilets!)
Great edition with superb cover mounted CD

FREE CD: HEAVY MOD! 15 blitzing tracks from The Move, The Yardbirds, Deep Purple, The Creation, The Pretty Things, Small Faces, Aphrodite’s Child and more! This month MOJO celebrates the artists who took the ‘60s mod batton and carried it into a fierce, overdriven future.
OASIS: “Bring it on, you little dicks! On the road and behind the scenes with the biggest band in the land, MOJO’s Pat Gilbert enters the inner sanctum of Oasis’s sold-out UK tour to discover the secret story at the heart of Dig Out Your Soul. “We’ve been to the dark side,” reveals a typically candid Noel Gallagher.
RYAN ADAMS: Trading a life propelled by drugs and booze for a reclusive existence writing poetry with a girl from Cambridge, the countrified purveyor of modern Americana tells MOJO’s Sylvie Simmons exactly how it all happened.
DEEP PURPLE: The big-haired men of mod venture back to their chaotic early years and the birth of their now-classic anthem Hush – Joe South’s country-r&b hit would never sound the same again. Even heavier territory awaited them.
ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN: They recorded one of the defining albums of the ‘80s then imploded under the strain. Now, back together, on form and playing live, MOJO joins Merseyside’s favourite post-punks as they revisit the fantastic voyage of Ocean Rain.
THE BEST OF 2008: Fleet Foxes, Duffy, Paul Weller, Foo Fighters, Dennis Wilson, Neil Diamond, Sigur Ros and Bill Drummond all feature in our rundown of the last 12 months in music. PLUS! MOJO’s top 50 albums of 2008! And everyone from Billy Connolly to The Edge choose the best thing they’ve heard all year.
The Elvis ’68 Live Album is one of my favourites particularily the original expanded version from a few years ago which included the full stripped down sit down segment of the show which highlights Elvis and his band at their rockabily best.
