Joakim Tinderholt – Hold On (Vinyl)

Joakim Tinderholts second album ”Hold On” is available on CD, LP and download (iTunes etc). Released on Big H Records (Norway) and Rhythm Bomb Records (International) in Summer/Fall 2017.
Almost three years after the release of their debut album Joakim Tinderholt & his band are finally ready with the follow-up. Since signing with German record label Rhythm Bomb Records, in 2015, the band has made it to big festival stages across Europe. Most notably Screamin´ Festival (Spain), Rhythm Riot (UK) and Moulin Blues Festival (Netherlands).
The new record is based on the same recipe as the first; a good mix of new original tunes and favorites from the live set. This time Joakim has penned two songs by himself and co-written another two with guitarist Hoeye and bassplayer Troiani. The covers are gems from the catalogues of Ike Turner, Freddie King and country singer Johnny Rivers, among others.

Del Shannon – Greatest Hits & Finest Performances

Del Shannon is known as the Runaway hitmaker of 1961, with a string of hits to follow in the early ’60s. One story that may not be as well known is that he was the first American artist to record and release a Lennon/McCartney composition in From Me To You in the summer of 1963. Shannon’s version charted higher than The Beatles’ original on the U.S. charts that summer, a song that Shannon had produced himself! Del’s first attempt producing a session tasted sweet and he wanted to explore that opportunity more in depth. Del Shannon cut ties briefly with his managers in the latter half of ’63 and wrote, recorded, produced, and released his own records for a stint on his own label, albeit short-lived, BER-LEE RECORDS.
