Hope to be proven wrong but these snippets are not very inspiring, it sounds like a Javelins record with better players. Could turn out to be their worst studio outing but we'll see.

Re: audiosample 30 secs of Turning to Crime


Come on guys, relax a bit!
This album is about five old musos having fun by going back to what they listened to when they were young.
Due to Corona, they were probably bored to death, their wives close to a nervous breakdowns with the old geezers staying miserably at home. So why not keep them busy by giving them some old toys to play with?
So far, I enjoyed 7 and 7 is as well as Rockin' Pneumonia; there (at least that's my impression) the five guys really managed to put some energy into this old R'n'R stuff, adding a few grains of salt (love that "Smoke" part from Don in the latter).
Of course, there will be some bloppers. You can always ask what's the point in covering early Fleetwood Mac, as it doesn't really make sense to try and improve a Peter Green solo. However, watching the video, the DP version also makes sense again. It won't be part of Rock history for sure but it still is some fun emoticon .
And that's what this album is about - some fun in grim times (hey, when I look out of my window and see this bloody grey November sky I need something to cheer me up anyway!). It's not about something exciting new (hey, they are playing sixty year old stuff!) but just the occasional smile. And with what I heard so far, I'm pretty confident that there will be these occasions.

I can perfectly understand their motivations for doing it and I agree with all that you're saying but those are not the same motivations I'll have for buying it and listening to it. The customer's point of view is not less important than the artist's. If I want to have fun, I'll probably prefer putting on Made in Japan, or Perfect Strangers, etc.

I'm going to do what I always do.

Buy the album (at my time of life the purchase cost is virtually irrelevant), listen to it a number of time and then decide whether I like it or not.

As I know virtually none of the tracks it won't be like a covers album for me as I don't know the originals.

Apart from White Room and Oh Well, I haven't heard or at least did not recognize the other song titles....which is okay by me. Really looking forward to the 26th.

Rather fitting, to release, "Turning To Crime" on Black Friday.
