New releases for Oct. 30, 2012: Toby Keith drops "Hope on the Rocks," Kelli O'Hara and Matthew Broderick featured in "Nice Work if You Can Get It" cast recording
You can practically set your calendar by Oklahoma country music superstar Toby Keith, who releases a new album every fall like clockwork. His 2012 effort, “Hope of the Rocks,” is out today on Show Dog-Universal Music.
“Hope on the Rocks” now will be released a year and a few weeks after the No. 1 all-genre debut of his acclaimed “Clancy’s Tavern.” “Hope on the Rocks” will find Keith once again writing, performing and producing. The Norman was working on a music video for the title track Monday.
Last week, I got the chance to talk to the Clinton native about “Hope on the Rocks.” Look for portions of my interview on Thursday and Friday.
Also out today, two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick (“The Producers”) and three-time Tony nominee and Oklahoma native Kelli O’Hara (“South Pacific”) headline the original cast recording of the musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” a madcap tale of bootleggers, chorus girls, playboys and politicians set loose in a glorious Long Island mansion in the rip-roaring 1920s.
The cast also features 2012 Tony winners Judy Kaye (Best Featured Actress in a Musical) and Michael McGrath (Best Featured Actor in a Musical). This new musical, which recently marked its 200th show, features a treasure trove of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved, instantly recognizable tunes set in a fresh and funny song-and-dance spectacular with a book by Tony winner Joe DiPietro (“Memphis”), directed and choreographed by three-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall (“Anything Goes”). Overflowing with great songs, including “But Not For Me,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” the sparkling musical comedy combines laughter, romance and high-stepping Broadway magic.
Here is a list of this week’s new CDs, DVDs and books, from Amazon.com and VideoETA.com:
Toby Keith, “Hope on the Rocks.”
Original Cast, “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”
Neil Young and Crazy Horse, “Psychedelic Pill.”
Rod Stewart, “Merry Christmas, Baby.”
