DAVE MATTHEWS BAND Busted Stuff (RCA) And here you thought you’d already burned the Lillywhite sessions. MP3 faves like “Bartender” have been rerecorded and upgraded, along with two newer tracks unknown to ex-Napster fans.
ROBERT PLANT Dreamland (Universal) The Zep frontman’s first solo album in nine years–and first of any sort since 1998’s Walking Into Clarksdale with Jimmy Page–finds him covering Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley, and Robert Johnson.
DAVID BAERWALD Here Comes the New Folk Underground (Lost Highway) A mere 10 years after his own last album, the erstwhile David + David mouthpiece moves in a slightly Americana-ish direction with his Lost Highway debut.
THE VINES Highly Evolved (Capitol) The latest band to pose that eternal question: Will the toast of England amount to anything more than commercial toast here? If critics have any say, Highly will evolve into an international hit.
