New Music Monthly: March 2018 Releases

March looks like an incredible month for music, new and old alike, with fresh tunes from a reunited Fanny, David Byrne, Jack White, Americana legends 6 String Drag, metal mavens Judas Priest, the almighty Ministry, and the blues duo of Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. Throw in reissues of righteous jams by Hawkwind, Tom Waits, NRBQ, and Geoff and Maria Muldaur as well as archive releases from Jimi Hendrix, Todd Rundgren, and Rev. Gary Davis and you have a great month for music that will definitely put a strain on your budget!

If we wrote about it here on the site, there'll be a link to it in the album title; if you want an album, hit the 'Buy!' link to get it from's just that damn easy! Your purchase puts money in the Reverend's pocket that he'll use to buy more music to write about in a never-ending loop of rock 'n' roll ecstasy!
