BILL EVANS AND LEE KONITZ
Together Again [Moon 024, 1CD]

Live at the Jazz Festival, Copenhagen, Denmark; October 31, 1965. Live at the Philarmonie, Berlin, Germany; October 29, 1965. Good to very good FM broadcasts.

Thanks to goody and pablo for sharing this at Lossless Legs; and to petercherman for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Original notes:

It should be noted that Bill isn’t on Track 01 or Track 02 and Lee isn’t on Track 03 or Track 04. (That’s not to diminish the excellent playing on each of those tracks, of course.) The only thing they seem to be “Together Again” on is the “bonus track” medley from Berlin, from two nights prior… I guess the Moon bootlegger needed a reason for the title, and some filler for those first tracks of less than half an hour’s duration. Gotta sell a product somehow… I do recognize the irony in our appreciation for the ‘by any means necessary’ way of getting the music out to the people…

Thanks to whomever, for liberating this thing! This is by no means a diss of your generous share, of course… I’m enjoying it immensely!

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - BERKELEY 1973

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
On The Road Night [Crystal Cat CC850, 1CD]

Live at the Community Center, Berkeley, CA; March 2, 1973. Very good/excellent Pre-FM. Recordings at Alpha Recording Studios, Richmond, VA; May 31, 1973. Very good/excellent soundboard.

The tracks from the Berkeley 1973 show can also be found on the Cannon Blast Lightnin’ Flash [Cat’s Meow] boot and the general feeling is that the On The Road Night tracks are an audio upgrade.

As for the Alpha Recording tracks, DrBanan commented at Dime: “According to info on Jungleland, the pre-air production Reel-To-Reel tape got wider circulation with The Uber Series tape trader project, from where Crystal Cat most likely ‘lifted’ the master for [t]his CD.

concertvault.com noted:

Recorded just weeks after the release of his first album, Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ, this historic opening set from Bruce Springsteen comes from a time when Bruce and the entire band could still (just barely) fit in one car… What makes this show particularly interesting and historical is that a few weeks earlier, Springsteen had actually been part of the very first King Biscuit Flower Hour, which was broadcast [on]… February 18, 1973. On that broadcast, Bruce only performed two songs and had to share the bill with Blood, Sweat & Tears and jazz-fusion pioneers, the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The unique and eclectic co-bill gained Springsteen enough exposure and positive response to warrant his own set on the soon-to-become popular radio series.

This show, recorded a month later, is the entire set that Springsteen performed as an opening act for Blood, Sweat & Tears in Berkeley, California. Apart from the debut King Biscuit recording, it is possibly the very first professional live recording of The Boss to surface. His Dylan-esque demeanor is very apparent, especially on the acoustic oriented material. Highlights include a very early version of “Blinded By The Light,” a very fast-tempo take on “Does This Bus Stop At 82nd St?,” and a passionate read of “Lost In Fhe Flood,” whose line, “Did ya hear that? His body hit the street with such a beautiful thud,” remains one of the most visual lyrics in rock history.

Thanks to DrBanan for sharing the tracks at Dime.

GEORGE HARRISON - TANNED EQUINE INTERVIEW 1974

GEORGE HARRISON
The Tanned Equine Interview [no label, 1CD]

August 31, 1974. Good to very vinyl rip.

It was 40 years ago today…

Thanks to original seeder doinker; and to edeledeledel for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Posted at bootlegzone:

This is a bootleg of the Dark Horse Radio Promo interview conducted by British DJ Nicky Horn in August 1974, the original of which seems to have been an LP distributed to US radio stations. The interview has previously surfaced on the “Dark Horse Radio Special” bootleg, but this one is in much better quality.

The interview dates from a brief flurry of promo activity in August/September 1974, when George launched Dark Horse Records, releasing singles by Splinter and Ravi Shankar in early September. George was still contracted to EMI via Apple at the time, so he couldn’t put his own music out on the label till the contract ran out at the end of 1975, so for a taste of the label, four tracks from Splinter and Ravi Shankar are presented - these have been expurgated here, of course.

There’s no talk of the impending North American tour, but there are some interesting mentions of his current relationship with the other Beatles, the movie “Little Malcolm and his Struggle against the Eunuchs” (which had just won an award), some of his financial arrangements, and religion (which the interviewer cuts off, unfortunately), as well as discussing the label [and] the group Splinter.

Leading up to the tour, this was one of the busiest periods of George’s life (record label, new acts, recording an album, helping others record theirs, then organising and rehearsing for the tour) and, ominously, he’s coughing sporadically throughout the interview…

BUDGIE
Leicester 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at De Montfort Hall, Leicester, UK; September 21, 1975. Good to fairly good soundboard (first generation).

Here’s a trip down Memory Lane… or was that Granville Road… for those who were there?

Budgie is a Welsh hard rock/heavy metal band from Cardiff. Formed in 1967, they were noted as “among the heaviest metal of its day”. Although Budgie remained quite obscure during their early career, many future stars of hard rock/metal have cited them as an important influence. Their key albums include In For The Kill (1974) and Bandolier (1975).

LINDA RONSTADT
Providence 1978 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Providence Civic Center, Providence, Rhode Island; August 8, 1978. 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.

NANA VASCONCELOS AND EVELYN GLENNIE
Bath Festival 1995 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Forum Theatre, Bath, UK; late May 1995. Very good to excellent BBC Radio 3 FM.

Here is something a little offbeat.

Brazilian percussionist Nana Vasconcelos teams up with Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie (who is profoundly deaf).

Vasconcelos is better known among jazz fans, notable for his works with Pat Metheny, Don Cherry, Egberto Gismonti, and Gato Barbieri. Awarded Dame Commander of the British Empire in 2007, Evelyn Glennie is the first person in musical history to successfully create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist. In July 2012, In collaboration with Underworld, Glennie led 1,000 drummers for the world premiere of And I will Kiss and also premiered Caliban’s Dream’ on a newly-developed instrument called the ‘Glennie Aluphone’ accompanying the lighting of the flame in the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics.

Thanks to PsyKies for sharing the tracks at Dime.

PsyKies noted: “Recorded by me off air direct from the original broadcast in 1995 to a Panasonic Hi-Fi VHS video recorder in SP audio only mode. Sometime in the mid to late 1990s I misguidedly transferred all my radio recordings to VHS LP audio mode. This, combined with the age of the tapes, has resulted in some evident distortion throughout.”

PAUL BUTTERFIELD - AMSTERDAM 1969/NEW YORK 1970

August 28, 2014 – 5:14 am

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

PAUL BUTTERFIELD
Amsterdam 1969/New York 1970 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; January 18, 1969 (incomplete show). Very good FM broadcast. Live at A&R Studios, New York, NY; December 14, 1970. Very good WPLJ FM stereo.

A white kid growing up in Chicago in the early ’60s, Paul Butterfield audaciously stepped outside of the comfort of his middle class roots and walked right into a world heretofore only known by poor black musicians. These blues musicians were tough men and women, playing in the smokey basement bars along the streets of south side Chicago. They deserved to play the Blues because they lived the Blues. Muddy Waters. Howling Wolf. Little Walter Horton. No white kid in his right mind would walk into that world. But along came Butterfield. He blew life into a fading musical genre by introducing it to white audiences craving the real thing.

Paul Butterfield was the first of his kind. His music electrified and forever changed the landscape of The Blues and Rock & Roll. With his soulful voice and powerful sounds made with his Hohner harmonica (harp), Butterfield erupted upon the scene like a shooting star. Scratch that: he blasted onto the scene like a soulful alley cat that bellowed to the moon. Everyone stopped to listen.  Then, all too soon, Paul Butterfield was gone at 44. [He passed away in 1987.]

In 1965, Paul Butterfield released his debut album, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. This was followed by East-West; after which was the successful John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers With Paul Butterfield. In 1968, Butterfield released the more soulful In My Own Dream, a trend he continued in the horn-driven Keep On Moving (1969).

Thanks to Rob Berger for sharing the these shows at Lossless Legs; and to ousterj for keeping the New York show alive on the net.

BOB DYLAN - LOS ANGELES, JUNE 3, 1978 (Mike Millard Master Vol 2)

BOB DYLAN
Los Angeles 1978
The Lost and Found Mike the MICrophone Tapes Vol Two [Mike Millard first gen via JEMS, 2CD]

Live at the Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, CA; June 3, 1978. Very good to excellent audience recording.

Thanks to Mike Millard for the recording; JEMS for the efforts; and to mjk5510 for sharing this at Dime.

Click here for Vol One.

Original notes:

JEMS is pleased to release the second of a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77.

Our second installment is from night three of Dylan’s residency at the Universal Amphitheatre in June 1978. This recording is more complete than the first night, but was again joined in progress. Millard’s notes state, “Missed first five minut[e]s of concert,” so his recording omits the show-opening “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “Love Her With a Feeling,” before he gets his Nakamichi 550 up and running during “Baby Stop Crying.”

Like night one, what Millard did record is, to my ears, mighty fine. Lossless Bob has two entries for this show, both of which appear to be the same recording based on the LB notations that they cut in the same song (”Forever Young”). Millard’s recording has no cuts in “Forever Young,” and while we haven’t done an A-B comparison, that detail suggests it is indeed a new and previously uncirculated source as night one was.

Olof’s essential and detail-rich Still On The Road website notes: “There are (sic) some confusion regarding these shows, the set lists are identical, but some sources claim that Joni Mitchell was present on this show [June 3] rather than the nigh[t] before.” I can confirm that the BobTalk transcription on Olof’s site for June 3 matches Millard’s tape, so it is safe to say Mitchell’s appearance, cited in the June 2 BobTalk, is properly attributed to the correct show.

A few additional notes:

In 1978, the Universal Amphitheatre was an open-air venue.

I’ve been told on good authority that Millard used a wheelchair to get his gear into shows, but didn’t record from a wheelchair or the wheelchair section of the venue.

If you’d like to learn more about Mike the MICrophone, the links below offer a glimpse of his story.

Thanks again to WG for finding the tapes and to SG for providing JEMS with another fascinating chapter of taping history. Also, JEMS is greatly appreciative of the work of mjk5510 for his continued assistance in getting these recordings into your hands. He is a vital part of the process at this point.

Here’s to Mike the MICrophone and to finding more lost tapes.

CHARLIE HADEN’S LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA - HAMBURG 1991

August 26, 2014 – 5:04 am

CHARLIE HADEN R.I.P. 1937-2014

Charlie Haden, a legendary jazz bassist and original member of the Ornette Coleman Quartet, died on Friday (July 11, 2014) after a prolonged battle with an undisclosed illness, according to his label, ECM. He was 76. Born in Shenandoah, Iowa in 1937 and raised on a farm, Haden helped to revolutionize double bass playing in jazz music as a member of saxophonist Coleman’s free jazz quartet in the late 1950s. A bout with polio at 15 damaged nerves in Haden’s vocal cords and ended his singing career, but he continued to play the bass. Haden also collaborated with artists like John Coltrane, Don Cherry, Alice Coltrane, Billy Higgins, Chet Baker and Pat Metheny, among many others. In 1967, Haden joined pianist Keith Jarrett’s ensemble, becoming a key member of the troupe before forming the band Old and New Dreams with Cherry. Haden also founded the Liberation Music Orchestra in 1969 with composer Carla Bley, which blended experimental jazz with political activism.

CHARLIE HADEN’S LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA
Hamburg 1991 [no label, 2CD]

Live in Studio 10, Funkhaus des NDR, Hamburg, Germany; June 26, 1991. Excellent FM broadcast.

Dream Keeper (1990) is the third Liberation Orchestra recording from Charlie Haden. Taking the racial and political strife in South Africa and El Salvador as their spiritual focus, Haden and Carla Bley deftly blend South American and African music, jazz, and gospel over the album’s five selections. - AllMusic.com

Thanks to hamhen who recorded the show; to jazzrita for sharing it in 2006; and TomP (tom_phillips) for enhancing the sound and sharingthis at Dime.

TomP noted: “I found that some small changes enhanced the sound quality further.”

Thanks also to fastone for the artwork.

FRANK ZAPPA - SAN DIEGO 1970

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

FRANK ZAPPA
San Diego 1970 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Sports Arena, San Diego, CA; February 8, 1970. Good to fairly good audience recording, a bit of hiss.

This one has been around for a while. It kind of “dropped out of sight” on the net and here is the Hot Rats band, especially for the collectors. The sound is far from pristine (imagine AM radio plus hiss) but it’s serviceable and, more importantly, listenable.

While this is listed and generally accepted as February 8, 1970, it has also been shared as February 28, 1970. The Frank Zappa Gig List: 1970 lists the February 28 date as “spurious”. To muddy the dates further, Neil Slaven’s Zappa: Electric Don Quixote (1996) only mentions a February 28 gig at San Diego’s Sports Arena, very likely with Aynsley Dunbar on drums.

According to zappa.com, “every song in these… shows is essentially an excuse for extended solos… These… shows contain Frank’s best solos of the early ’70’s”.

Thanks to oecourt for sharing this on the net.

Thanks also to LiborioFriki for the artwork.
