NI ROCKS Recommends "The Valley of Tears - The Ballads" by MAGNUM
I’ve posted recommendations for the last 3 studio albums from Magnum, but wouldn’t have counted myself as a fan of the band prior to those. For whatever reasons I never made much effort to get into the albums that the band released from the late 70’s to early 90’s. Over the past few years, I’ve dipped my toe into the expansive pool of earlier Magnum tracks and added a few to my library, so I was interested to hear of the release of “The Valley of Tears – The Ballads” via Steamhammer / SPV on 6th January 2017. There can be no doubt that Magnum have a talent for ballads and this album brings together 10 of those. I played “Back In Your Arms Again” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 9th December and “Your Dreams Won’t Die” on the Show on 30th December.

NI ROCKS - That was 2016 - Update and Thanks!
I decided last year that I wasn’t going to post a “review” of 2015 and for the same reasons I have no plans to do one for 2016. We’re all aware of the talented artists we have lost in the past 12 months and nothing I could write would add to what others have said. And, as I’ve generally very little time for other peoples Top 10 whatever of the year, I’m working on the presumption that no-one really cares how many gigs I went to or what my favourite gigs or albums were!
What I would like to do though is express my thanks to many people and look back at the past year for “NI Rocks”. In particular, thanks to anyone who takes the time to listen to a Show, read something on the Rock Radio NI website or interact in any way on social media. The latter is increasingly challenging for those running anything similar to NI Rocks; unless you are willing to buy “likes” or pay to increase access, so I really appreciate those who take the effort to like, comment on or share posts.
