Forthcoming Releases: Music for all

Not a day goes by without me receiving tons of media releases about new music.
I don't post many of those releases, but occasionally I get stuff that is worth sharing. Here is news about two notable commercial collections set for release on March 2, 2010 that look especially promising.

Flogging Molly is set to release Live at the Greek Theatre, which comes as both a DVD and double CD of the band's performance on Sept. 12, 2009 at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Directed by Kevin Custer, Live at the Greek Theatre is a "must have for all Flogging Molly fans and a uniquely-special introduction for those music fans that have yet to experience Flogging Molly's uniquely powerful show," according to the SideOneDummy Records press release dated Jan. 26, 2010. Playing songs from all of Flogging Molly's albums across a 90-minute set, the event was shot with eight high-definition cameras and the audio was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Ryan Hewitt. Live at the Greek Theatre will be available on March 2, 2010.

Three of my bona fide musical heroes are set to appear on the Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey soundtrack. Set for release in connection with the Universal Studio Home Entertainment DVD (which also comes out March 2), the soundtrack features great songs from Brian Wilson (a cover of The Riveiras' hit "California Sun"), as well as several new songs from Virginia's Carbon Leaf ("The Friendship," "On A Roll" and more) and a special title track recorded by 429 Records' artist Jackie Greene ("Follow That Monkey").
Here is the track listing for the Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey soundtrack:
1) "Life Less Ordinary" Carbon Leaf
2) "The Friendship" Carbon Leaf
3) "California Sun" Brian Wilson
4) "On a Roll" Carbon Leaf
5) "Heart of the Day" Carbon Leaf
6) "Let Your Troubles Roll By" Carbon Leaf
