Munich 2019 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the
Zenith, Munich, Germany; November 21, 2019. Fair audience recording (slightly boomy). Slightly intrusive crowd chatter.

Yola is a Grammy nominated English musician, singer and songwriter from Bristol, UK. She has also gone by the name Yola Carter. She became the lead singer of the band Phantom Limb, who released their first album in 2010. She has sung backing vocals for numerous artists including Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers and Iggy Azalea. She released her first solo EP, Orphan Offering, in 2016.

Yola made a splash at the Newport Folk Festival 2019 with Rolling Stone proclaiming, “Yola became the single most sought-after voice at this year’s festival. She played a triumphant side-stage show, served as an unofficial member of The Highwomen, and added her own vocals to performances by everyone from Dolly Parton to Dawes, who let the fast-rising singer take over for the entirety of their 2009 song “When You Call My Name.” In February 2019, she released her debut album Walk Through Fire, which generated three Grammy Award nominations. The album was nominated for Best Americana Album and the track “Faraway Look” was nominated for Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance. Additionally, Yola was nominated for Best New Artist. - wikipedia

Ever since receiving recognition from Elton John late 2017, this small-town Michigan band Greta Van Fleet had been the most talked about thing in the world of rock ‘n’ roll. In fact, one might say they are the biggest thing to happen to rock in a long time.

Signed to Lava Records in 2017, these Frankenmuth, Michigan rockers released their debut full-length studio album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, in October 2018; and topped the Billboard Rock Album charts in the first week after its release. The album also debuted atop the Billboard Hard Rock charts and reached the number one spot on the Billboard Top Album Sales charts in the first week after its release. The band’s EP From the Fires won the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.

Thanks to JohnPorno for sharing the show at Dime.

JohnPorno noted:

The show was sold-out, as all of the dates to this tour. Haven’t been to such a big venue for a longer time so I positioned myself centered in front the soundbaord for the main show, since I was late getting access to the front rows.
The sound isn’t the best, but still it’s a whole recording of that night. The crowd was very loud and rude (especially during the Yola set). The torrent contains both support act (Yola) and main act (Greta van Fleet).

    By U L E on Jan 13, 2020

  3. No rumors about the opening act . Not famous enough

    By U L E on Jan 13, 2020

  4. Fact is, you start early with the BS. No rumor.

    You wake up and this is like the very first thing on your mind?!?! Must be a joyful life.

    Have an awesome day :)

    By just wow on Jan 13, 2020

  5. Rumor has it complainers and angry folks gots Lil Uns

    By U L E on Jan 14, 2020

  6. I only complain about assholes. Normal folks don’t bother me.
    I ain’t angry. Just pointing out that your idiocy starts early and never stops.
    I ain’t little. 8 inches hard. Probably about average but thanks for asking.
    And when my wife’s choking on it we both enjoy.

    Sorry u got nobody to choke on yours.

    I hope you have as awesome a day as is possible for an asshole.

    By just wow on Jan 15, 2020

  7. Dude 8 inches is below average to me . But I only date black men .You dudes on this site have penis envy .

    By Rhonda on Jan 15, 2020

  8. Eight inches is about the length of the head of Uncle Milte’s Coc

  9. Sinatra’s too

    By Scaromouch on Jan 15, 2020

  10. The good news is that the percentage of jackwads in the real world seems to be nowhere nearly as high as the percentage of jackwads in this forum.

    By Mark on Jan 15, 2020

  11. Another so called obvious observation from Hebrew Mark , who considers himself intellectually superior to everyone else here .

    By HHH on Jan 15, 2020

  12. Actually Mark , was there are more jackwads in the world today than the opposite sad to say and you are one of them .

    By HHH on Jan 15, 2020

  13. That’s so cute HHH. Project much?

    By just wow on Jan 17, 2020

  14. HHH- The ratio is in favor of non-jackwads in my sphere. I guess you only have your friends to gauge the jackwad ration.

    By Mark on Jan 17, 2020

  15. an odd pairing. Yola’s album was one of my favorites of last year a fine slab of country influenced soul music. Greta’s first LP was a disappointment after their strong EP debut. thanks bigO.

    By barth on Jan 17, 2020

  16. No offense to the great Aretha, but “Spanish Harlem” should always be identified as a Ben E. King cover.
