Punk Rock Karaoke After years on hold, a punk-rock superstar "sing-along" side project featuring members of Bad Religion, NOFX, Social Distortion, and the Adolescents has finally been released, bringing the old-school party to basements and family rooms across suburbia. Calling themselves simply Punk Rock Karaoke, the original New Year's Eve spectacular was conceived in 1996 by Bad Religion/Circle Jerks guitarist Greg Hetson and went on to play a variety of weddings, bar mitzvahs, and the Warped fest before putting the madness to tape in 2001.

Eban Schletters - Witching Hour With Halloween approaching, it's not too early to get your "creep" on with a pair of spooky CDs. Lurking over his pipe organ, Theremin, and other noisemakers, Eban Schletter summons the fog with Witching Hour on the Oglio Records imprint - easy work for a composer whose work includes SpongeBob SquarePants and Mr. Show with Bob & David. Plenty of friends show up to sip from his cauldron, including Grant Lee Phillips, Jill Sobule, and comedians Paul F. Thompkins and Dave Foley. One highlight features the voice of SpongeBob, Tom Kenny, welcoming victims to his "Haunted Carnival."

Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison One of the most important and heartfelt albums of 1968 gets a deluxe reissue next week. On Tuesday, Columbia Records releases the "Legacy Edition" of Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, expanded to two CDs and a documentary DVD. With expletives restored and the revelation of an entire second show that was "lost" (except for a few selections culled for the original 16-song release), the box set contains a total of 51 tracks and a massive essay by Cash biographer Michael Streissguth.
