Released as a single in April 1965, Ticket To Ride hit #1 in the UK and USA and remained there for consecutive weeks. When you think of the song it’s probably not Ringo’s drumming that stands out the most, instead perhaps John’s vocals or George’s lead guitar work. But the following isolated track of the drums reveal Ringo’s steady drumming as the concrete foundation that all Beatles songs were built on. Check it out:
The first song from Beck’s new album Colors has been released, and it’s incredible. After his two last songs Wow and Dreams I was worried that he would continue that kind of style, but he hasn’t. There is a lot of pop but not as much as those two songs. Take a listen:
Well, here we go, the second song from the next Foo Fighters album has been released and it’s…lacking. They’ve long been one of my favourite bands but this song just doesn’t do it for me. Take a listen for yourself:
I first became aware of Margo Price when she performed on Later… with Jools Holland in 2016. I’m not really a huge fan of country music. It’s a genre I have tried to get into a couple of times but failed. However Margo Price’s combination of incredible music, songwriting and singer makes the genre a lot more appealing to me. And as a result, I absolutely love this EP.
Fame, released in 1975 and co-written by John Lennon, is one of my all-time favourite Bowie tracks so being able to hear the isolated vocals is incredible. Take a listen:
Chuck Berry passed away on the 18th March of this year and his final gift to the world was a new album, released on the 9th June. It had been 38 years since his previous album Rock It was released in 1979 with Berry focusing more on live work since then, so when news broke before his passing that he was working on a new album I was ecstatic.
