RYAN ADAMS isn't the only one coming out with a full-album cover of TAYLOR SWIFT's 1989

The buzz today has been that RYAN ADAMS has not only completed his full-album cover of TAYLOR SWIFT's 1989 - but that Digital pre-orders for it are now live (Amazon | iTunes), and that the release will be available on Monday, September 21st. If you want a hard copy, Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the CD, which Blue Note will release on November 20th... but RYAN ADAMS isn't the only one with a full-album cover of 1989 in the pipeline. On October 9th, the crew at Roma Music Group will release their LULLABY VERSION OF 1989 as part of their massive Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of lullabies. Normally, I'd show you the cover art and tracklisting for the album, but since it's 1989, I'm just gonna defer to Taylor on this one...

Raise a Little Wiseguy (or girl) with LULLABY VERSIONS OF MOB HITS...

If you're prepping to raise a little "wiseguy" (or "wisegirl" or "wiseperson" if we're being P.C.), the crew over at Roma Music Group has the perfect soundtrack for the baby's nursery with the release of LULLABY VERSIONS OF MOB SOUNDTRACK HITS. One of the latest entries into their massive Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of lullabies, MOB HITS is an eight-song EP that leans on THE GODFATHER and GOODFELLAS, with a dash of MOONSTRUCK and THE SOPRANOS thrown in. Fun fact: Addie has, in the past, told people that "Daddy is a Rock and Roll Gangster" - something I explained in this post from 2013. Check out the tracklisting for the LULLABY VERSIONS OF MOB SOUNDTRACK HITS below, along with a stream from THE GODFATHER...

SENSES FAIL Gets a New Lullaby Collection from Sparrow Sleeps...

If you read THE ROCK FATHER regularly (and I sure hope that you do), then you already know that there's a ton of great family music out there that escapes the mainstream radar. For the youngest rockers, that music often skews toward lullabies based upon the works of popular artists - an increasingly busy field dominated by a few companies of note, such as my friends at Roma Music Group and their massive library of Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star titles. While the "bigger" artists get lullabied regularly (sometimes by multiple labels), the folks at Sparrow Sleeps are focusing on a more niche market, with the subjects of their work often involved in the release of these nursery-friendly counterparts. Casey Cole and Peter Lockhart describe themselves as "two midwestern guys with pop-punk fueled hearts," and that shows through their releases, which lullaby fan favorite tracks from artists such as MXPX, THRICE, HOT ROD CIRCUIT and CARTEL. Today comes their latest release, THE CRIER - lullaby renditions of your favorite SENSES FAIL songs.
