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.

SECRET KEEPER (MARY HALVORSON) - BBC 2013

SECRET KEEPER
(Mary Halvorson and Stephan Crump)
BBC 2013 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Strongroom Studios, London, UK; November 25, 2013; broadcast May 5, 2014. Excellent audio.

For those who know Stephan Crump from his work with Rosetta Trio, this performance highlights a different and more exploratory side of the bassist’s playing. Whilst his trademark warmth and bounce remains, here textures and melodies unfurl organically through a series of improvised narratives and spontaneous compositions. Halvorson’s sound on guitar is truly unique - a beguiling approach to extended techniques is so fluid and well integrated, that rumbling detuned notes and the plink of bell-like effects seem a completely natural part of the landscape. Secret Keeper’s enchanting and sensitive approach is an antidote to the brash blowing sessions and high-paced chaos sometimes associated with freely improvised music. - bbc.co.uk

Thanks to tom_phillips (TomP) who recorded and shared the tracks at Dime.

TomP noted:

A great Jazz On 3 session, short as usual but with phase inverted, dulling the sound so I corrected this and you now have it in the usual excellent BBC sound quality.

MORRISSEY - THE BEETHOVEN WAS DEAF OUTTAKES

July 21, 2014 – 5:00 am

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

MORRISSEY
The Beethoven Was Deaf Outtakes [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Astoria Theatre, London, UK; December 20, 1992. Excellent stereo soundboard. Live at Le Zénith, Paris, France; December 22, 1992. Fairly to very good stereo audience recording.

Reworked by Vince Dome - Thanks.
Thanks also to sousourn1823 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Background:

In May 1993 Morrissey released his first live album called “Beethoven Was Deaf”. It was recorded over two nights in December 1992. The sleeve notes of the album incorrectly credits the complete set as having been recorded in Paris, when in fact seven of the 16 songs were recorded in London two days before the show at Le Zénith. The tracks “Jack The Ripper”, “Sister I’m A Poet” and “You’re The One For Me, Fatty” from “Beethoven Was Deaf” will be included in the “World Of Morrissey” compilation released in February 1995.

You will find here the 12 missing tracks from London and the 10 missing tracks from Paris.

A few songs played during the two gigs were not included on “Beethoven Was Deaf”: “Tomorrow”, “Alsatian Cousin” and “The Last Of The Famous International Playboys”.

In London, “November Spawned A Monster” was stopped after two minutes because Morrissey was trying to remove a ring from an audience member to wear it on stage.

The silver CD bootleg “I’m A Poet” used a DAT audience recording, but due to a bad transfer some diginoises can be heard during the show. One friend of the taper is unfortunately “un gros beauf” (a redneck), and can’t stop making stupid comments between the songs. A member of the audience will shout for “The Loop” until… “The Loop” is finally played, but another one will have less success with “Everyday Is Like Sunday”.

Due to the average mixing and editing of “Beethoven Was Deaf”, it is not possible to “add” the official tracks into the outtakes, or vice versa. All the speeches made by Morrissey in London and Paris (edited in the official album) were kept on the outtakes tracks in their actual place.

SAN FRANCISCO JAZZ COLLECTIVE
Plays The Music Of Stevie Wonder [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Allen Room, New York, NY; March 10, 2012 (rebroadcast June 27, 2014). Excellent FM.

The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star award-winning jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers/composers at work in jazz today. Launched in 2004 by SFJAZZ, the Collective has become one of the most exciting and acclaimed groups on the jazz scene. The SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco is the Collective’s home base.

The SFJAZZ Collective is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a Spring 2014 Tour and an appearance at the 60th Anniversary Newport Jazz Festival in August by highlighting their greatest arrangements and original compositions. This “best of” performance includes material from many of the Collective’s past and present members along with the tribute composers including Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Horace Silver, Stevie Wonder, and Chick Corea.

To cultivate its distinctive sound, the SFJAZZ Collective convenes in San Francisco each spring for a multi-week residency. Throughout this extended rehearsal period-a rarity in today’s jazz-the octet workshops the season’s new repertoire and interacts with the Bay Area community through SFJAZZ’s education programs for youth and adults. The Collective then takes to the performance stage, including home season concerts under the auspices of the SFJAZZ Spring Season and a national and international tour, with stops in some of the world’s most prominent concert halls.

The Collective recently released the 2-CD set, The Music of Chick Corea & Original Compositions, recorded in March 2013 at the brand new SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco, CA. The Collective’s first and only studio album, Wonder: The Songs of Stevie Wonder, won Outstanding Jazz Album at the 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena, CA on Friday, February 21, 2014.

TOM WAITS
Amsterdam 2004 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Kninklijk Theater Carre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; November 21, 2004. Excellent FM stereo.

Karla Healion, hotpress.com, 2004:

Someone once said that listening to a Tom Waits CD is more like watching a play than hearing an album. So seeing a Tom Waits show is perhaps akin to some abstruse sensory overload that, no matter how high the expectation, will bite you like a shark…

Sometimes the set is challenging; he’s taken to beat-boxing percussive hits vocally when playing live, but, much like life, these moments bring you to a new realm of appreciation and leave you wishing they’d never end. Other songs, like ‘I’m Still Here’, ‘Alice’ or ‘November’ are pensive ballads of the type only Waits can perform; gentle, softly replete with meaning and substance.

He didn’t talk very much, which would have been a shame if the tunes themselves didn’t speak more eloquently than any stage banter. His band was tight and lent him the perfect platform, in abstract sporadic percussion and great guitar solos, to keep his unique bark and whiskey-drenched drawl going for two hours and three encores. Stunning.

Thanks to vortex242 who shared this at Dime in 2005; and to procella for keeping the show alive.

JOHNNY WINTER - BOSTON 1991 (R.I.P. 1944-2014)

July 18, 2014 – 5:30 am

JOHNNY WINTER R.I.P. 1944-2014

Blues musician and producer Johnny Winter has died on July 16, 2014 in Zurich, Switzerland at the age of 70, just days after playing at the Lovely Days Festival in Austria. There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Winter, who played with Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters, was a friend of John Lennon, who wrote Rock and Roll People in his honour. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote a song for him in 1973 called Silver Train. Winter, like his brother and musician Edgar (of Edgar Winter Group fame) was an albino and known for his long, blond hair and a cowboy hat. During the late ’60s, he performed frequently with Janis Joplin and the pair became lovers. Winter suffered from terrible addiction problems with heroin in the early ’70s and although he had spells of recovery, much of the ’90s was blighted by a reliance on antidepressants, vodka and methadone. Even at 70, Winter was still performing around 200 concerts a year and admitted once that “guitar is the only thing I was ever really great at”. Winter was due to release a new album entitled Step Back on September 2. - telegraph.co.uk

NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE
Liverpool 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, UK; July 13, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Sean Diamond at louderthanwar.com:

It’s been said before that Neil Young is one of those artists who doesn’t give a fuck what people think of him, and there’s clearly some truth in this. Dressed down in a black ‘Earth’ T-shirt and flat peaked black cap, he makes little or no concessions to conventional showmanship, preferring to launch straight into a 12-minute ‘Love And Only Love’ followed by a similarly long ‘Goin’ Home’, epic guitar workouts clearly intended for the many diehards out in their hordes tonight.

This is the kind of attitude non-believers are quick to dismiss as self indulgence, when in fact it’s anything but. Burning underneath the supposed crankiness is an often overlooked eccentricity and sense of humour, he’s playfully toying with the audience in order to see exactly how much we are prepared to let him get away with. Thankfully, it’s clearly a committed set of fans tonight (I heard of his apparent annoyance at large sections of the Hyde Park crowd shouting out for the hits); we are, he assures us in his own words, “a good audience. A little ugly, but a good audience.” Good to know, Neil!…

A 14-minute ‘Like A Hurricane’ provides us with a suitably fitting encore, complete with a cardboard figure adorned organ suspended by strings and climaxing with Neil shredding the strings of his guitar (“a good way to let everyone know you’re not coming back on” in the words of my uncle!).

A great set on the whole; wonderful atmosphere provided by people who clearly cared about the music, a rare chance to see a living legend perform on home soil, and, more importantly, a fantastic show which never once loses your attention. An anti-performer you cannot take your eyes off for a second, surely that’s a skill in itself? It helps, of course, if you have the songs to back up the stance, and Neil has them in droves.

BECK, BOGERT & APPICE - TOKYO 1973

July 16, 2014 – 3:35 am

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

BECK, BOGERT & APPICE
Tokyo Budokan Tapes [Reel Master Rema-001/002, 2CD]

Live at the Budokan Hall, Tokyo Japan; May 14, 1973. Fairly good audience recording. A bit distant.

When Beck, Bogert & Appice played Japan in 1973, they released the Live In Japan album, which featured the May 18 and 19, 1973 shows at the Koseinenkin Hall in Osaka. The album was initially considered rare due to the fact of being only released in limited numbers in Japan. A 40th anniversary edition of the album was released in 2013. Live In Japan was the last released album by Beck, Bogert & Appice and their only live album. Within months of the album’s release the band would dissolve after Jeff Beck suddenly decided to leave the band.
