From Johnny A. to Zeppelin, this week's new releases has something for everyone!
Johnny A., "Driven" (Agiaophone): The third blues-rock solo album by the Boston guitarist and former musical director for Peter Wolf's band.
Captain Beefheart, "Harpo's Detroit Dec. 11, 1980" (Gonzo Multimedia): A latter-day exposition from the cheerfully iconoclastic Captain and his crew.
Led Zeppelin, "Led Zeppelin," "Led Zeppelin II," "Led Zeppelin III" (Atlantic/Rhino): No mere re-releases, these deluxe sets are the first of a full-catalog rollout that dredges the group's vaults for killer -- and often unreleased -- audio and video bonuses. Nothing less than a whole lotta Led.
Marcus Roll Hook Band, "Tales of Old Grand-Daddy" (Parlophone): Angus and Malcom Young, pre-AC/DC, are showcased on this set of songs they recorded with their older brother George and friend Harry Vanda (AC/DC's original producers) in 1973.
Mike Mattison, "You Can't Fight Love" (Landslide): The first solo outing by the vocalist known for his work with the Derek Trucks Band and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Rich Robinson, "The Ceaseless Sight" (CircleSound/The End): The Black Crowes guitarist and co-founder recorded his third solo album in Woodstock. N.Y.
Voyager, "V" (Nightmare): The Australian prog-metal troupe funded its fifth album via a Kickstarter campaign.
"Super Duper Alice Cooper"DVD and Blu-ray (Eagle Rock): This documentary about the ground-breaking shock-rocker merits repeat viewing -- especially deluxe version that includes bonus concert footage, including a vintage 1972 show in Montreal.
