'80s hard rock queen Lita Ford will release a new album, "Time Capsule", on April 15 via SPV/Steamhammer. The very special and unusual recording turns back the clock to a time when honest, down-to-earth rock music was still handmade and recorded without digital tricks and contraptions. New album consisting of previously unreleased archival recordings featuring appearances from a long list of guests that includes members of Kiss and Cheap Trick.
The sole album of this French speaking Canadian band was released in 1972 and housed in a trippy day-glo mushroom cover. This great and still underrated record was ﬁlled with varied, imaginative and cleverly-arranged songs based mostly on pleasant sax and ﬂute passages and was deﬁnitely inﬂuenced by late 60’s psychedelia and classic progressive bands like King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator and Jethro Tull. The central point of this very professionally produced album was Le Chateau Hante - progressive, mostly instrumental, 11 minutes track dominated by twisted sounds, haunting whispers and very long, fuzzed-out guitar solo. This CD edition has been carefully remastered from original, analogue source and sounds better than ever!
Time Capsule is an excellent, 18-track collection that offers a comprehensive overview of the B-52's' career, from their kitschy post-punk beginnings to their unexpected chart success in the early '90s. Along the way, all the big songs -- "Planet Claire," "Rock Lobster," "Private Idaho," "Quiche Lorraine," "Summer of Love" (in its original mix), "Channel Z," "Deadbeat Club," "Love Shack," "Roam," "Good Stuff" -- are here, making this an ideal choice for casual fans. For collectors, there are two new cuts ("Debbie," "Hallucinating Pluto") which are fine, but not particularly noteworthy outside of the fact they're only available on this disc. Then again, the very idea behind Time Capsule is to provide a concise introduction for the curious, and on that level, it works perfectly.
