PROCOL HARUM
San Francisco 1977 [no label, 3CD]

Live at the Old Waldorf, San Francisco, CA; April 8, 1977 (early and late shows). Very good audience recordings.

Thanks to kneesfudd for sharing these tracks at Dime.

kneesfudd added: “It really doesn’t speak well of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that these guys haven’t been inducted yet. They’ve been in mine for 44 years and it’d be longer but they didn’t hit my radar until about 1970 other than the big hit. Pretty damn impressive repertoire of material.”

Early Show notes (by kneesfudd):
- Very fine audience in small club (with some overload in this show only).
- Warts: Some distortion in loud passages where taper must have had levels too hot (this show only). #8 cuts and #9 starts late at tapeflip. Could use a bit of treble push in my opinion. Surely missed some dropouts but tapes were in good shape.

Late Show notes:
Could use a bit of treble push in my opinion. Surely missed some dropouts but tapes were in good shape. Tapeflip between 7 and 8 (no music missing).

CAROLE KING
The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song 2013 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the White House; May 22, 2013. Very good audio, ripped from PBS TV broadcast/webcast.

Pop music as we know it would be far different without the many lasting contributions of Carole King, who is more than a half century into her singular career as a songwriter, performer, and author. Indeed, this universally renowned and beloved figure has rarely been more active than during the last five years…

In addition to her continuously evolving musical career, King, who has lived on an Idaho ranch since the early ’80s, is actively involved with environmental organizations in support of forest wilderness preservation. To date, more than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over 1,000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles. Now 70 and still full of life, Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female songwriter in pop music history. - US Library of Congress

“Carole King’s body of work reflects the spirit of the Gershwin Prize with its originality, longevity and diversity of appeal,” commented Dr James H. Billington, the Librarian of Congress.

PET SHOP BOYS - BBC PROMS 2014

PET SHOP BOYS
With Chrissie Hynde
BBC Proms 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; July 23, 2014. Excellent webcast.

Better known as the electro-pop duo the Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe make their Proms debut here as composers. The world premiere of their large-scale work, A Man From The Future, inspired by code-breaker Alan Turing, sits alongside new orchestral arrangements of favourite Pet Shop Boys songs with legendary vocalist Chrissie Hynde.

The piece is inspired by the life and work of Alan Turing, who helped break the German Enigma code during the Second World War and formulated the concept of the digital computer, but was prosecuted in 1952 for his homosexuality, receiving a posthumous pardon last year. It comes as a timely homage, 60 years after Turing’s death.

The concert also includes new orchestral arrangements by renowned film composer Angelo Badalamenti of five Pet Shop Boys songs chosen by Tennant and Lowe, in which they are joined by Chrissie Hynde, as well as the exuberant overture to their 1991 tour, Performance, heard live in concert for the first time. - BBC

Thanks to paul_b35_uk who recorded and shared the tracks at Dime.

paul_b35_uk noted:

There is some minimal “static” type interference noticed for a few seconds at 4:40 into Overture to ‘Performance’ and a loud thud at 12 seconds into the quiet intro to Pet Shop Boys Songs/Four Songs In A Minor.

These are both present on the captured AAC stream so would appear to be integral to the broadcast. The thud sounds like something falling over in the venue itself.

This was a live broadcast and I also have not attempted any mastering or editing of such artefacts, no fade ins or outs between tracks are used and all accompanying spoken narration is included.

LINDA RONSTADT
Boston 1983 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Boston Common, Boston, MA; July 22, 1983. Last show of the “Get Closer” tour. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt, 67, told AARP (blog.aarp.org) August 23, 2013 that she “can’t sing a note” because she suffers from Parkinson’s disease. Diagnosed eight months ago, Ronstadt began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago.

Thanks to the original taper; and to Steve Hopkins (shopkin527) for transferring, encoding and sharing the tracks at Dime.

DIRE STRAITS
The Long Strait Walk To Wembley [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Wembley Arena, London, UK; July 10, 1985. Excellent soundboard. Almost complete version.
Thanks to enlight for the fine effort and for sharing this at Dime.

enlight noted:

A thing I wanted to do for a long time was to create a most complete version of the famous Wembley gig Dire Straits did on July 10. All recordings (original silvers) so far contain eight songs from this particular night with “Romeo and Juliet”, “Expresso Love” and “Solid Rock” added from the original released Alchemy CD (Hammersmith Odeon, London, UK; July 23, 1983). This version contains all the songs recorded from that night and comparing to all the previous recordings (original silvers) with the songs in the proper order as they were played that night.

A - Tracks: 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08 ripped from the original silver “Walk On Stage”
B - Tracks: 01, 09, 11 ripped from the DVD “Wembley Does The Walk” and remastered
C - Track: 13 Taken from The Superstar Concert series.

The tracks named under A and C have a perfect sound quality from origin.
The B tracks had a “less” sound quality, these tracks I remastered to bring them closer to the FM sound quality as the other tracks (A, C).
These tracks are de-hissed, de-crackled and EQ Changes are made with a parametric equalizer set in shelving mode.
After that all tracks are volume normalized in a batch process.

I named this version The Long Strait Walk To Wembley ( I guess you can figure out how I came to that title) to avoid mix ups with all the other existing recordings (original silvers) from this date.

DEEP PURPLE
MSG 1974 [Machine Head, 2CD]

Live at Madison Square Garden, New York; March 13, 1974. Good to fairly good audience recording.

By 1974, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover had left the band. In their places were bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (at that time remembered for Trapeze) and vocalist David Coverdale. This new lineup released Burn in February 1974 and their spring tour included shows at Madison Square Garden, New York on 13 March. On this show, Coverdale is an able replacement while Blackmore definitely rocks.

SERGIO MENDES
Cologne 2014 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Summerstage, Tanzbrunnen, Cologne, Germany; July 12, 2014 (broadcast on July 24, 2014). Excellent FM broadcast.

It would have been quite the perfect World Cup celebration. The samba in Brazil while Sergio Mendes had his own party in Germany. But the fates… well, they could be unkind. Or whatever. Germany historically bundled Brazil out of the World Cup in the semifinal and, on July 12 (the day of this show), Brazil went down 0-3 to The Netherlands in the play-off for third place. Not quite what the Brazilians (or the world) expected. Still, you have to hand it to the Brazilians - they sure khow to have a good time. Party on Sergio Mendes!

PAUL BLEY, GARY PEACOCK, PAUL MOTIAN
Essen 1999 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Satiricon Theater, Essen, Germany; March 15, 1999. Very good FM broadcast.

In 1999, jazz pianist Paul Bley released Not Two, Not One with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Paul Motian. Steve Loewy reviewed the album at allmusic.com: “Bley is especially effective exploring the lower sonorities, while Peacock’s full-sounding bass throbs with joy. Motian is characteristically exquisite, his soft, layered, sensitive strokes prodding his colleagues. None of the pieces drift, as these three masters contribute a mature perspective that comes from varied experience. Remarkable interplay, chamber-free harmonies, and loose improvisations add up to some special sounds.”

Thanks to Nocturnal_n productions for sharing this on the net in 2005.

SANTANA - SAN DIEGO 1973

Click on the panels for a better view or to download artwork.

SANTANA
San Diego 1973 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Sports Arena, San Diego, CA; January 30, 1973. Very good soundboard.

Sometimes a song can just take you away, by just sheer familiarity. That’s what Samba Pa Ti (especially in this medley form with snippets from Breezin’, Never Can Say Goodbye and Brazil) will do to you. It may be comfort food for some but it does get you through the day.

Thanks to HermanLR for sharing the show at Dime.

HermanLR noted:

First of all jdbrewer26 made me realize that some SBD shows from early 1973 had never been shared here before. Thanks for reminding me of it! And taking into regard that Santana has had worse spells, these have to be heard… San Diego features a Lotus setlist. Smashing show of a superb band, of course. The SBD quality is good, though I felt the need to run Audition to improve it a bit on the high end.

mrnym1 added: “Free Angela includes a Promise of a Fisherman theme on keyboards. I’ve never heard of live performance of this song with the guitar part, and even the theme itself seems relatively rare. A nice surprise. One of my all time favorite Santana pieces, from the Borboletta album.”

Picture by Heinrich Klaffs - Thanks!

LILY ALLEN
New York 2014 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Highline Ballroom, New York City, NY; May 15, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to mrsaureus who recorded and shared the show at Dime.

mrsaureus noted:

This is an audience recording that aims to document the experience of being in the crowd at the show, and features occasionally loud but appropriate crowd noise.

I like seeing pretty singer girls in small venues and, lately, it has been a feast for that: first Ellie Goulding at the Theater at MSG, then Lady Gaga at Roseland and, now, Lily Allen in the smallest of them all. Highline Ballroom is barely bigger than Mercury Lounge and noboby on the floor is further than about 40 feet from the stage. This is the first time Lily Allen has played in NYC since 2009, and there was a very diverse and enthusiastic crowd. Probably 50:50 girls and guys, and the guys seemed mostly to be heterosexual (in contrast to the Gaga show). I wasn’t the oldest dude there by a long shot and I am in my early 50s (OK, mid 50s. Early mid-50s).

Listening to the Lily Allen catalogue is like visiting Epcot or Las Vegas: the songs are set randomly all over the world of musical genres (Afropop? Check! Cajun stomp? Check! and so on) and all burnished to a high shine. This music is light as helium, a sonic souffle covered in musical meringue that melts in ear. It’s all carbs and calories: it’s probably not very good for you and, eventually, it would probably make you sick, but IT IS DELICIOUS! People go to Epcot and buy churros for a reason. Enjoy.
