New CD Album Releases, 5-18-2010: Lena Horne, Bo Bice, MacGruber Soundtrack
Lena HorneWay the most interesting thing this week is Lena Horne Sings: The M-G-M Singles. These would date to 1947-48. It would appear that many of these recordings have never been released on CD, including at least a couple of rarities from foreign releases. The bits I’ve heard sound highly listenable, recorded around the height of her popularity. If you don’t have any Lena Horne records, this might be a good starter.

American Idol Bo Bice is back with a third album whose title speaks to the level of imagination showed in his music, 3. From the record company blurb, “Bo Bice recently finished his third album, entitled ’3,’ and finally had the opportunity to make the record he always wanted to make. Bo put his heart and soul into his new album, a mixture of Southern Rock, Country and Americana highlighting his unmistakable, earthy and powerful voice.” Actually, I for one find his voice imminently mistakable. Having just suffered through listening to previews of this album, I have just dubbed a new album genre in his honor, Generic Commercial Country.
