Loudon Wainwright III has a new album out this week that sounds interesting, Here Come the Choppers. I’m particularly interested in hearing “Hank and Fred,” a tribute to Misters Williams and Rogers.

I’ve never paid much attention to Herb Alpert, but the 40th anniversary re-release of Whipped Cream and Other Delights is already #44 at Amazon.

I note also the curious sounding multiple artist Jamaican dub album of Bob Dylan songs, Is It Rolling Bob? Dub Versions.

Here’s the complete list of this week’s major new releases, courtesy AMG:

    that elkland cd is excellent for those who like electro-pop done with a rock mindset.

    LAst week, CNN had an article on the 4oth Anniversary of “Whipped Cream and other Delights”, and the model on the cover has her own website aptly titled “whippedcreamlady.com”. My parents had this and several other HA & TB albums, but I have neverforgotten that cover. The music is actually pretty good, if you like that style.
