Shock Rock

Remember Tesla, the band and not the man?  It’s been 20 years since they released the Five Man Acoustical Jam.  To celebrate the anniversary they have released a new CD titled Twisted Wires.  It is new recordings of some of their classic hits done acoustically.  Even though this seems like a remake they have changed some of the lyrics to give it an updated feel.   Four of the songs like "Into the Now,"  "Hang Tough", and "Edison’s Medicine" were recorded in 2005 but the rest were done last year. They have even included "Song and Emotion" that they wrote in tribute to the late Def Leppard guitarist Steve Clark.   Along with the classics they added a new song called "2nd Street" which I found myself humming later.   It features all but one of the original members of the band but the sound is the same.   Check it out!
