Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 2, 2013 Fact reviewing TEEN BEACH MOVIE Walt Disney Records Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell star in Disney Chan- nel Original Movie "Teen Beach" and the beach musi- cal film set in the 1960s has a track that shines through- out. Cast members perform- ing the soundtrack include Maia Mitchell, Spencer Lee, Keely Hawkes, Grace Phipps, Jason Evigan and Garrett Clayton. The party begins with Mitchell serving up "Oxygen," followed by "Surf Crazy," the knockout cut "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'," with Phipps soloing on "Fall- ing For Ya," and a group effort on "Meant To Be." A touch of Beach Boys harmony flows from "Like Me," the banjo pickin' of "Can't Stop Sing- ing," the summertime sound of "Surfs Up," chilling with "Coolest Cats In Town" and an explosive "Surf Crazy Finale" with the entire cast. Three bonus tracks, all instrumentals, for "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'," "Falling For Ya" and "Surfs Up." Feel the sand under your feet? EARTH WIND & FIRE - NOW, THEN & FOREVER Legacy Recordings Hailed as one of the world's top touring bands and with more than 90 million al- bums sold, Earth, Wind & Fire deliver their first new studio album in eight years. "Now, Then & Forever" con- tains ten tracks, with the dance delight "My Promise" the first single. Opening with the funk of "Sign On," trailed by the romantic "Love Is Law," the shine of "Guiding Lights" and the statement "Got To Be Love." EWF sashays through the pretty "Belo Horizonte," the high energy of "Dance Floor," the eerie sound of "Splashes," throw your hands in the air and lean side to side with "Night of My Life" and end with the creative 'rhe Rush." Excellent comeback CO! VINCE GILL & PAUL FRANKLIN - BAKERSFIELD MCA Nashville Winner of 20 Grammy Awards, Vince Gill and famed steel guitarist Paul Franklin join forces to pay tribute to the "Bakersfield" sound -- singing the songs from two Bakersfield's sons: Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. It starts with the duo's version of the Harlan Howard/ Owens' feisty "Foolin' Around," Haggard's "Branded Man," the Owens classic 'l'o- gether Again," a bit of kick in Haggard's "The Bottle Let Me Down," the wake-up Arty Lange/Owens plea "He Don't Deserve You Anymore" and Haggard's pretty "I Can't Be Myself." The West Coast trib- utes continue via "Nobody's Fool But Yours" (Owens), followed by the sadness of "Holding Things Together" (Bob Trotten/Haggard), wind- ing down with Tommy Collins' pleading "But I Do" and the finale is Haggard's uppity cut "The Fightin' Side Of Me." The songs are classics, by bob morello the rest but Gill and Franklin end up making them shine -- again! JIMMY EAT WORLD - DAMAGE RCA Records Jimmy Eat World is an alternative rock band com- prised of Jim Adkins (lead vocals/guitar), Tom Linton (vocals/guitar), Rick Burch (bass) and drummer Zaeh Lind. 'Damage' is their eighth studio album and includes previously released singles, the title cut "Damage" and the confident "I Will Steal You Back." The group is cur- rently on tour in support of 'Damage' and will be stop- ping at Boston's House of Blues, Monday August 5 th. Fallout from 'Damage' be- gins with "Appreciation," seeking support on "Lean," the tale of "Book Of Love," and reaching out with "Please Say No." Jimmy Eat World composed all the tunes on this album and contrib- uted to its production, along with Alain Johannes. The non-stop beats continue with the questioning, "How'd You Have Me?," the dismissive "No, Never," the solemn song of lost love on "Byebyelove" and the final track is the re- alization of "You Were Good." Don't miss Jimmy Eat World at the House of Blues on Monday; it's a show you won't want to miss! EMBLEM3 - NOTHING TO LOSE Columbia Records Emblem3 got their start competing on the second season of The X Factor and have propelled that opportu- nity to the release of their debut album 'Nothing To Lose.' Brothers Wesley and Keaton Stromberg, along with their lifelong friend Drew Chadwick comprise Em- blem3. Their eleven-track collection features their hit single "Chloe (You're The One I Want)," and a host of potential winners. Pick your favorites from cuts as the high energy cut "Just For One Day," the tasty party cut "Spaghetti," offering up the love to put the "XO" in romance, being neighborly with the "Girl Next Door" and an offer she can't refuse in "Nothing To Lose." E3 wastes few words in singing the praises of the West Coast via "I Love LA," continuing by heading full speed ahead to "Sunset Blvd.," and their hasty decision to leave the East Coast in song on "3000 Miles," only to find out the grass is not really greener on the other side (coast). The talented trio takes on the royalty theme with "Teenage Kings" and put the finish- ing touches on an exciting debut album, with a nod to peace in the world, via the touching lyrics of "One Day." The boys will continue on a run of headline tour dates this month with local appearances at the Hampton Beach {NH) Casino August 2 nd and South Shore Music Circus (Cohasset, MA) on August 4 . The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani "WICKED" IS FLYING BACK INTO BOSTON "Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz" is returning to Boston from August 7 th through Septem- ber 154 at the Boston Opera House in Downtown Boston.

LITTLE RHODY UPHOLDS CHURCH-STATE SEPARATION Every day I thank God I do not live in Rhode Island and as bad as Governor Deval Patrick is, R.I. Governor Lincoln Chafee makes him look good. Down in Provi- dence at the State Capitol, pro-life legislators passed a bill allowing drivers to pur- chase "Choose Life" license plates. Half of the $40 surcharge would go to the state and the other half to CareNet.Rhode Island. On July 16 th, the governor vetoed the bill citing the separation of church and state. You can get "Choose Life" plates all across the country, even here in the Peoples Republic of Mas- sachusetts but apparently the wall of separation is even higher than the border fence Republicans want with Mexico. However, while the founder of the Rhode Island colony was a firm believer in toler- ance and religious freedom, how does a "Choose Life" license plate adversely affect Rhode Island's historical call for religious freedom? Sounds like more politically correct stuff and an in- correct reading of Roger Williams himself. A PLACE FOR CONSERVATIVE MEDIA I am a big fan of the Fox News Network and of both Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. I try reading both the Wall Street Journal and Investors Business Daily as much as I can. I think the editorial pages of the IBD are even better than the Jour- nal. The conservative per- spective is sorely lacking in the mainstream liberal me- dia. I also love conservative talk radio and miss hearing Hannity's radio show in Bos- ton since WTKK 96.9 went off the air. While I was down in Texas on vacation, I found the Hannity show on two dif- ferent radio stations. He runs on WAOI 1200 AM New Radio San Antonio and also on New Talk Radio 96.3 FM in Austin. Every day at the pool sun tanning, I had Sean on my radio by my side. He was a breath of fresh air to hear once again. Here in Boston we have WRKO 680 and I catch Jeff Kuhner in the mornings and Mark Levin week-nights. Mark just wrote a new book, "The Liberty Amendments" about how to save our con- stitutional republic. His last book, "Meritopia" was also a great read. His latest is his fifth book. Quite the conser- vative author ... Meanwhile the Kuhner Report mornings are quite entertaining as well as informative. The guy L-R: St. Joseph Society members Rosemary O'Brien and Andrea Zangla, both of South Boston. has a good sense of humor and just the right dash of information surrounding it. Recently, the liberal media painted conservative talk radio as snake oil for old white people over the Zimmerman Trial and the Kuhnerman let them have it with both barrels. As he stated, it was the liberal media and its cronies like Al Sharpton who constantly were using the race card to make their points. By the way, if you can pick up WCRN 830 on the AM dial out of Worcester, you can tune into Michael Graham every weekday at high noon. He is as good as ever. I certainly hope Sean Hannity comes back on some local radio station soon. Miss his colorful opines. KUDOS TO THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF BOSTON The Islamic Society of Bos- ton recently condemned Rolling Stone Magazine for featuring accused Dzhokhar Tsarmaev on its cover. The Society's statement read, 'Glamorizing violence and criminals goes against basic Islamic teachings and the moral conscience of the American people." ALICE COOPER COMING TO LYNN Coming soon to the Lynn Auditorium on October 17 th will be none other than Alice Cooper. A few weeks ago I got to watch the fairly new "Dark Shadows" movie starring Johnny Deep as Barnabas Collins. (Did I spell that right?) where Cooper showed up in Collinsville to do a gig at the mansion. Back when I was in college, "Dark Shadows" was a day- time soap with a large col- lege-age following. This movie was a whole new take on the old soap opera. I had fun watching it. IMPROPER BOSTONIAN NAMES ECCO AND RINO'S "BOSTON'S BEST" FOR 2013 Ecco was chosen as best bar in East Boston and Rino's as the best eatery in the neighborhood. I always enjoy stopping by Ecco for a great Irish coffee where they whip up fresh whip cream for their valued customers which means everyone who goes there. Next time you are there, tell Dave Modica I sent you. East Boston once was known for just Jeveli's and Santarpio's but now it is a culinary heaven with numerous Italian, Hispanic and Brazilian restaurants to choose from depending on your taste du jour. TISEI THINKING OF ANOTHER RUN IN 2014 Republican Richard Tisei who narrowly lost to incum- bent U.S. Rep. John Tierney for U.S. Congress in the 6 th District by a single percent- age point is seriously con- sidering a do-over in 2014. The former state senator was the 2010 GOP nominee for lieutenant governor. Tisei who is openly gay married his longtime partner Ber- nard Starr early this July. In 2012, the Democrats painted Tisei as a member of radical right Republican forces which is too silly to even comment on.
