As you’re navigating through the glitter, glam, and superheroes this back-to-school season, you’re bound to get a little nostalgic of your own childhood. We want to help you embrace the memories with three fantastic new albums that harken back to a different age… Read on for an opportunity to win a gift bag of all three CDs!
Sting - Symphonicities
Sting has finally produced an orchestrated album, performing the greatest hits from both The Police and the solo eras. His long-awaited collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is breathtakingly cinematic— yet buoyant —with the same classic energy that has resounded from him since the Police first stole the stage in 1978.
Sheryl Crow - 100 Miles From Memphis
Sheryl Crow has tapped into her soulful roots and produced an album of all new music that sounds like it’s straight from the 70’s. It’s stacked with surprises— including Justin Timberlake’s vocal colors on “Sign Your Name” and Keith Richards’ signature riffing on “Eye to Eye.” 100 Miles
is a truly entertaining, summer-glinted treat.
Marc Cohn - Listening Booth: 1970
voice covers the most lasting songs from a “pivotal year in music:” 1970. Simon and Garfunkel’s
“Only Living Boy in New York”; Paul McCartney’s
“Maybe I’m Amazed”; John Lennon’s
“Look At Me”; all collide in an album that’s ripe with treasured moments.
Treat yourself with your own little end-of-summer goodie— all three of these CDs are available in our stores now.
