Posted by Billyjam, June 30, 2017 06:38pm | Post a Comment

Just in time for the Fourth of July / Independence Day holiday, Neil Young today unveiled the brand new track / music video for "Children of Destiny" (see below). The new collaborative track with Promise of the Real was introduced late this morning via a Facebook live video stream by Young alongside Micah Nelson. Along with fellow guitarist Lukas Nelson, Nelson is one of two Willie Nelson offsprings featured in the 62 member Promise of the Real that includes a 56 piece orchestra for this recording.

Longtime activist Neil Young, who wrote the song, supplies guitar and vocals for the protest piece whose chant-along chorus advises listeners to, "Stand up for what you believe. Resist the powers that be" as well as to, "Preserve the land and save the sea, for the children of destiny!"

New Soundtrack Releases For Summer

It's heating up outside, which means the multiplexes are cranking the air conditioning and cueing up the ol' reel-to-reel. That's right: summer movie season is upon us. This year, perhaps the only thing hotter than the flicks themselves are their soundtracks. And fortunately, a lot of our favorite films, new and old, are getting special new releases. How special, you ask? 

Well, a lot of these are out on high-quality 120-gram+ vinyl. Others are ready to slide right into your tape deck. Some are remastered. Some are back in print for the first time in decades. Others feature special bonus tracks or new art. And, of course, there are some pretty rad colored vinyl options, as well. Read on to find out what we're cranking now and what we're looking forward to spinning.
 

OUT NOW

Baby Driver

Various Artists - Baby Driver

This upbeat, excellently curated collection of tunes from Edgar Wright's new film, Baby Driver, is destined to be one of the year's best soundtracks. Out now on CD and 150-gram double vinyl with gatefold packaging.

Caroline Munro

By Kai Wada Roath

Do you remember the face that Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli made when he was surprised by the Lone Ranger for his birthday on the "Hi Yo, Fonzie Away" episode of Happy Days? For I had that same expression of unbelievable awe as a young lad when I first saw Caroline Munro appear in her harem costume in the Golden Voyage of Sindbad. (If you need a refresher on being struck in such awe, just watch Lynda Carter do six minutes of Wonder Woman spin transformations.)



Caroline, who is a Capricorn, is known by most for her superb acting abilities in fantasy-action, science Caroline Munro in Dracula A.D. 1972fiction, and the Hammer horror films of the 1970s (such as Dracula A.D. 1972 and Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter, a favorite of the famed ventriloquist comedian, Hiroshi Hasagawa).
