dirtydozenThis weekend’s playlist was pretty much of a mixed bag with some new songs from The Ruen Brothers along with some old School and new school Michael Schenker. Here are twelve of the songs that were on our radar.

Ruen Brothers – Motor City

Taking a listen to Point Dume the new E.P. from the Ruen Brothers. Motor City is the best of the lot, but all four of the songs are pretty special.

Chris Whitley – Big Sky Country

Chris Whitley is one of those just under the radar guys that really should be better known. An extremely underrated guitar play, Whitley mixes Blues, Folk, Rock and killer guitar work in the JJ Cale mold. Keith passed away in 2005 from lung Cancer.

U.F.O – Too Hot to Handle

With Michael Schenker on Saturday’s That Metal Show it seemed only reasonable to crank up the album that is severely underrated when it comes to discussing best live Rock albums of the 70’s.  So we cranked up Strangers in the night.

Michael Schenkers Temple of Rock – Vigilante Man

And then again there is Michael’s throw back band Temple of Rock. Good old school 70’s Rock.

Rival Sons – As Long as I Can See the Light

Rival Sons with an acoustic cover of the underappreciated Creedence tune.

Ozzy Osbourne – Mr. Crowley

Randy Rhodes at his absolute best.

Shooter Jennings – The Gunslinger

Zella Day – 1965

Florence and the Machine light, Zella Day is a Rock Chick on the rise.

The Dunwells – Lucky Ones

The much anticipated Dunwells record is finally out, and we are listening to it.  Over and Over.

The Sheepdogs – Feeling Good

Going old school 70’s with the new school Sheepdogs.

Frankie Ballard – It Don’t Take Much

We are trying pretty hard not to like this fresh faced Country singer, but so far we are failing.

Whitey Morgan – Waiting Around to Die

The new album doesn’t come out until May 19th, but we have this one in the mean time. So we will just play it over and over again.
