New CD Album Releases, 5-10-2011: Peter Case, The Cars, Randy Newman

Peter CaseIt’s always good to have a new Peter Case album. This week Brother Peter has The Case Files on Alive Records. Haven’t heard enough to make any big judgment, though “Let’s Turn This Think Around” and “Kokomo Prayer Vigil” are sounding good. Note that Amazon is giving away the last song, “Round Trip Stranger Blues.”

The Cars are back with Ric Ocasek. Move Like This sounds exactly like the Cars, except without all those pesky hooks like the old days.

The Randy Newman Songbook, Vol 2 features Randy Newman doing basic stripped down piano and voice arrangements of his old songs, mostly not his better known songs even among his fan base. The original records were mostly pretty good, certainly not over produced. But then it’s good to just hear slightly different arrangements and performances of “My Life Is Good” and “Kingfish” among others, and it could draw you in to some lesser known classics.
