DAVID AND THE DORKS
(Crosby, Garcia, Lesh, & Hart)
The Matrix 1970 [Keyhole KHCD9021, 1CD]

Live at The Matrix, San Francisco, CA; December 15 (?), 1970. Very good soundboard.

Stuart Jefferson, AMG:

Recorded before the release of Crosby’s album, “If I Could Only Remember My Name”, this set comes from a short stint at the Matrix in SF in 1970. The tapes may be dated inaccurately because the Matrix folks (who taped many sets) didn’t keep real accurate records on the tape boxes.

But that doesn’t really matter - it’s the music that’s important - and, in that respect, this is a pretty nice set of tunes well played for the most part. Crosby is in good voice, especially on songs like “Cowboy Movie”, “Triad”, and Laughing”. The band too helps give these tunes a good period feel of those times. Garcia takes over on Dead staples “Bertha” and “Deep Elem Blues”, and the foursome are pretty tight all through these tunes. I have to say that both Crosby and Garcia’s guitars are a treat to hear together on this set. And with The Dead rhythm section, there’s a real organic feel to the music - again redolent of the era.

Here are a few highlights - “Drop Down Mama” - some hot guitar work with a typically good Crosby vocal. “Cowboy Movie” - slowly unwinds with more good electric guitar punctuating Crosby’s vocal, a nice version of this tune. “Triad” - a beauty, Crosby’s smooth vocals pour down like honey, if the recording quality were better this would be a stunner. “The Wall Song” - very subtle performance with the band laying back effectively, listen to the bass work here.

“Bertha” - a nice, chugging version with Garcia on vocals, in the context of The Dead a curiosity worth hearing. “Deep Elem Blues” - good Crosby/Garcia guitars, Garcia again on vocals, similar in feel to “Bertha”, listen to the mid-tempo guitar solo. “Motherless Children” - very open beginning with Crosby’s wordless vocal and builds from there, Garcia holds his guitar in check until he unleashes a gripping solo, and ending the way it began. “Laughing” - a good preview of Crosby’s solo album, a sensitive arrangement, there’s a slight feeling of menace in this song.

BOB DYLAN AND FRIENDS
Newport 1965 [Flying M Production, 1CD]

Live at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, Rhode Island; July 25, 1965. Public domain.

Wikipedia:

On Saturday, July 24, 1965, Bob Dylan performed three acoustic numbers, “All I Really Want to Do”, “If You Gotta Go, Go Now”, and “Love Minus Zero/No Limit” at a Newport workshop. According to Jonathan Taplin, a roadie at Newport (and later a road manager for the acts of Dylan’s manager Albert Grossman), Dylan made a spontaneous decision on the Saturday that he would challenge the Festival by performing with a fully amplified band. Taplin said that Dylan had been irritated by what he considered condescending remarks which festival organizer Alan Lomax had made about the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, when Lomax introduced them for an earlier set at a festival workshop.

Dylan’s attitude, according to Taplin, was, “Well, fuck them if they think they can keep electricity out of here, I’ll do it. On a whim he said he wanted to play electric.” Dylan then assembled a band and rehearsed that night at a mansion being used by festival organizer George Wein. On the night of Sunday, July 25, Dylan’s appearance was sandwiched between Cousin Emmy and the Sea Island singers, two decidedly traditional acts. The band that went on stage to back Dylan included two musicians who had played on his recently released single, “Like a Rolling Stone”: Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar and Al Kooper on organ.
Two of Bloomfield’s bandmates from the Paul Butterfield Blues Band also appeared at Newport: bassist Jerome Arnold and drummer Sam Lay, along with Barry Goldberg on piano.

KING SUNNY ADE & HIS AFRICAN BEATS
Austin 1989 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Liberty Lunch, Austin, Texas; October 1, 1989. Fairly to very good soundboard.

“King” Sunny Ade is a Nigerian musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and a pioneer of modern world music. He has been classed as one of the most influential musicians of all time.

His music is in the age-old tradition of singing poetic lyrics (”ewi” in Yoruba) and praise of dignitaries as well components of Juju (traditional African belief) called the Ogede (casting a spell). Hence, Ade’s music constitutes a record of the oral tradition of his people for posterity. - wikipedia

Thanks to the taper; Stagger Lee for the transfer; original uploader; and to zootype for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Notes:
Original Tracks 04 and 05 were two pieces in one long track with a long tape flip gap in the second track/piece - those are now retracked as two pieces and the gap is removed - an audible glitch remains. No remixing/EQ applied.

LEE HAZLEWOOD - GERMANY 2002

LEE HAZLEWOOD
Germany 2002 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Centralstation, Darmstadt, Germany; September 18, 2002. Very good audience recording.

Think Nancy Sinatra in the ’60s and Duane Eddy further back in the ’50s. Singer, songwriter, producer Lee Hazlewood, who was usually associated with these two artistes, passed away in 2007 at the age of 78. In May 2015, Wyndham Wallace published Lee, Myself and I: Inside the Very Special World of Lee Hazlewood (Jawbone). In 1999, after 25 years in the wilderness, Lee Hazlewood began his comeback by headlining the Meltdown festival in the UK. In this extract from his new book, Wyndham Wallace reveals how he coaxed the cult singer-songwriter back to the stage:

Spring 1999: Lee Hazlewood, I’d decided, should perform live. It was a naively ridiculous idea, and its greater significance to both Lee and his fans was initially lost upon me: I’d failed to realise that, up to this point, he’d never played solo in the UK…

I told him that only a single show would be necessary – a performance at the Royal Festival Hall, in June 1999, which he would headline – and emphasised that he was free to use his fee to choose any musicians he wanted. Slowly, to my cautious delight, he began softening to the idea…


Lee Hazlewood, at Meltdown 1999, wearing his ‘Movie Facts’ sweatshirt.
Picture by Simon Leigh, posted at theguardian.com.

The evening of Monday 28 June 1999 and prominent indie-rockers such as Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, the Charlatans’ Tim Burgess, and Placebo’s Brian Molko are standing at the Royal Festival Hall bar in their finest threads. Backstage, even they are overshadowed by the presence of actor Harry Dean Stanton, who with his occasional country band represents one of the night’s two opening acts. The star of my favourite film, Paris, Texas, is pounding the corridor in a white linen suit similar to the one he wore in some of its best scenes. I keep my distance: dealing with one hero at a time is enough.

A bell rings out in the foyer to signal the imminent start of Lee Hazlewood’s first ever British solo concert. Less than three months after we first met, it’s show time. “Here we go, Bubba,” Lee says from a gloomy corner out of sight of the front row, just loud enough for me to register. If he says anything else, it’s buried beneath a vigorous opening drum roll and fanfare. Lee drops his cigarette and grinds it carelessly into the floor. There’s no time to wish him luck before he’s gone, striding up the steps to face his fans, embers still smouldering at my feet. He’s not even reached the stage by the time we’ve heard our first bum note, but, as the crowd spots Lee, and the riotous introduction slips into the more sedate opening of Rider on a White Horse – hardly one of the most prominent songs in his catalogue, but still a firm favourite of the devout – the mistake is submerged beneath their roar…

In front of more than 2,000 fans, celebrities, and the “horse’s asses” reviewing his concert, the genius we have all come to eulogise has reappeared in ill-fitting jeans and a novelty sweatshirt almost certainly purchased in a souvenir gift shop. “Movie Facts” is emblazoned over his heart. A list of film trivia decorates its back. Twenty-five years after he all but vanished from sight, the spotlight has finally found Lee Hazlewood. There he is, one hand tucked stiffly in his pocket, sauntering on stage like a man returning from the toilet.

DR LONNIE SMITH TRIO
Columbus 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Jazz & Rib Festival, North Bank Stage, Columbus, Ohio; July 19, 2015. Fairly to very good audience recording. (Hopefully the surrounding audience noice doesn’t get too distracting.)

Anyone who turns the songs of Beck (and that is Beck Hansen, not Jeff Beck) into a jazz album certainly deserve your attention. That’s what Hammond B3 organist Dr Lonnie Smith did on his 2003 album, Boogaloo To Beck: A Tribute. For more, the Jazz Journalist Association named Smith “Organ Keyboardist of the Year” in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009. [His beard and turban do not reflect a conversion to Sikhism; they are strictly for stylistic reasons.]

Thanks to jefft3881 for sharing the show at Dime.

jefft3881 noted:

Nice show here with the legend with a few Columbus jazz notables in the crowd. Thundershowers came about three hours before showtime and cooled the temperature and likely thinned the crowd out. Despite brief dog barks at the beginning and a couple of trains rolling by, sound is excellent. Crowd noise is mild, except for a little chatter (in the earlier part of the show) by late arrivals, most audible during quieter segments.

TOM PETTY - GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA 1993

TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Southern Accents In The Sunshine State [Gossip #GOS018, 2CD]

Live at the Stephen C O’Connell Center, University Of Florida, Gainesville, Florida; November 4, 1993. Very good FM broadcast.

Release notes:

Two-CD FM broadcast captures Tom Petty’s complete 1993 homecoming concert, his first show in Gainesville, Florida for 20 years. Following the breakup of Heartbreakers Mudcrutch in 1975, Tom Petty and former band-mates Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell, joined up with some other Gainesville musicians, bassist Ron Blair and drummer Stan Lynch, to become Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, in 1976. But, even then, success was not immediate, and they had many struggles ahead.

When their first album was released in November 1976, it initially received little attention, selling only a few thousand copies over the initial months. They released two singles, ‘Breakdown’ and ‘American Girl’, and both failed to chart in the US. Apparently, potential punters were confused; they looked like a new wave band (the album cover photo especially), but the music was pure rock n’ roll with a definite ’60s throwback style.

Fortunately, however, the UK seemed to ‘get it’, and they became popular there, with the album climbing to #24 on the British charts. Slowly, after news of their success in Britain, the album began picking up interest in the US, finally entering the Billboard charts almost a full year after its initial release. ‘Breakdown’ was re-released too, and this time made it into the top 40.

Back in Gainesville, the community was very supportive and proud of Petty’s success. However, by the late ’80s, there was also some growing resentment, that Tom had forsaken his hometown, that now that he had made it big, he rarely came back to his local fans and his roots there. Thus, the show presented here, from 1993, represented his homecoming to Gainesville, his first major concert there since packing up his van and leaving with Mudcrutch, almost 20 years before.

This show was just prior to the release of his greatest hits album and while he was in the process of moving to a new label. The greatest hits album also included two new recently recorded songs ; ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’ and a cover of Thunderclap Newman’s ‘Something in the Air’, both of which are included in this show. And the show was broadcast on the radio nationwide, in superb FM quality. So, here is Tom Petty’s triumphant, yet somewhat overdue, return to Gainesville. Although some of the circulating FM versions of the show are shortened substantially, this is the full show in all its glory.

SONIC YOUTH
Vilnius 1989 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Vilnius Palace, Vilnius, Lithuania; April 5, 1989. Very good audience recording (ripped from DVD - filmed by a single camera on a tripod).

Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation (1988) was the group’s fifth studio album - their first official double album, and their last before signing to a major label. (Even though the album was released in October 1988, Thurston Moore still referred to Silver Rocket as The Rocket.) Daydream Nation is widely considered to be the band’s greatest work, and an influence on the alternative and indie rock genres. It was chosen by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Recording Registry in 2005. Before Daydream Nation, fans had to contend “only” with tracks such as Death Valley 69; Catholic Block, Star Power; Hot Wire My Heart, Halloween and Expressway to Yr Skull. For sheer catchability and sonic onslaught, Daydream’s opening two tracks - Teen Age Riot and Silver Rocket are hard to beat.

The video of this show is probably a must only for Sonic Youth fans and the audio remains a good companion piece. (It must be said that though praised for “being a good capture for its age”, it is really for the fans. Let’s say - blame it all on HD TV! The audio, which is pretty good, is another matter all together.)

Thanks to Audrius Daukša who recorded the show; and to thewaymouth (and many others) for sharing the show on the net.

Original notes:

Not to be outdone by the boys, the mighty Kim makes with the drumstick to her bass during The Wonder. All the while she is kickin her candy Andy Warhol/Marylin Monroe hose; you know those from the Kool Thing video. Thurston even dedicates Silver Rocket to the American pop-art icon. Only with a plastic exploding inevitable performance for the ages. Looks like we’re not in Vilnius anymore. The band is smoking on some heavy, iron curtain rolling papers now. Out in Eric’s Trip, Lee yells “Dig it! Dig it! Dig it, Dig It!” And so Lithuanian youths shake and hop while the band sings all night about fucking the future. Kim then sends out to all of Lithuania, ‘The Sprawl.’ Anybody who wasn’t already, is all in. Even a momentary, onstage power-outage at the start of ‘Cross The Breeze only leads to a rededication to the festive manifesto of the Teenage Riots of 1989. “It’s time to get it/Before you let it/Get to you.” And getting after it thereafter is just like before, like all get-out.

Minimal music is a music style that originated in downtown New York in the ’60s. The sounds are of a constant work in process that encourages the listener to focus on the internal processes of the music, which generally has a steady pulse with gradual transformations, without a conventional build-up or goal. Terry Riley has long been seen as a pioneer of the minimalist school of music.

A Rainbow In Curved Air, an enormously influential composition from the quintessential Summer Of Love, is performed by Lunatree. [It’s faintly reassuring to hear Riley’s summer-of-love utopianism… just as his sleevenotes to 1969’s Rainbow In Curved Air fantasise of a day when “the Pentagon was turned on its side and painted purple, yellow & green”, here his words (“look to the skies and dream; why commute to work underground?”) reject urbanisation and long for a pre-industrial bucolic idyll. Ironically, Riley’s music is as joyously futuristic as ever. - theguardian.com]

As part of Terry Riley’s appearance at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw for the World Minimal Music Festival, he premiered Children Of Gaz, a piece specially composed for the festival, performed by Gregory Charette (Conductor), Gwyneth Wentink (Harp), Janne Rättyä (Accordion), William Knight (Tenor) and Nieuw Amsterdams Jeugdkoor (Choir).

Riley’s seminal composition, In C, is performed by Stargaze.

BURT BACHARACH - GLASTONBURY 2015

BURT BACHARACH
Glastonbury 2015 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Pyramid Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 27, 2015. Very good audio, ripped from HD webcast.

Normally, one does not expect any tension in a Burt Bacharach show. But the tension on stage is probably unintentional though palpable - every one is concerned that something might just happen to the 87-year-old master tunesmith.

As The Guardian pointed out, there was little to dislike about Bacharach’s performance (it was a career-spanning set, which was what fans expected): the sun was blazing, the picnic carpets were covered in lazy-limbed families who’d plonked themselves down for the rest of the day, bathing in the romantic, rose-tinted glow of the easy-listening king.

Watched by the likes of Paloma Faith, Adele, Will Young and Daisy Lowe, the master songwriter lost some of the audience in the smulchy, lounge section at the end, but if there was one thing Saturday afternoon at this festival needed, it was some sweet familiarity before Kanye polarised the Pyramid stage.

LAURYN HILL
Lucca 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Lucca Summer Festival, Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy; July 20, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Lauryn Hill made her name as a member of the Fugees and had a hit with her 1998 album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Since then her career had been patchy - dropping out or self-imposed exile and sporadic touring and recording. In 2012, she pled guilty to tax evasion for failure to pay federal income taxes and, in 2013, served a three-month prison sentence. In May 2015, Hill canceled her scheduled concert outside Tel Aviv in Israel following a social media campaign from activists promoting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign.

Hill contributed her voice to the soundtrack for the 2015 documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone? She was originally supposed to record only two songs for the record, but ended up recording six. On July 30, 2015, she is scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Listening to Hill at the Lucca Summer Festival, sounds like Hill is “back” in fine form. Check out Final Hour and she can rap with the best of them.
