CHRIS HILLMAN, BERNIE LEADON AND AL PERKINS
Houston 1984 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Rockefeller’s, Houston, Texas; January 12, 1984. Excellent mono soundboard.

Chris Hillman - “Arguably the pioneer of the genre known as ‘Country Rock,’ Chris Hillman has carved a permanent niche in the history of contemporary American music through his work with such notable bands as The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers and the Desert Rose Band.”

Bernie Leadon - “Played in Southern California bluegrass and country rock groups in the 1960’s such as The Flying Burrito Brothers and Dillard & Clark. He backed Linda Ronstadt alongside Glenn Frey, Don Henley and Randy Meisner at one point, and they went off to form the Eagles in 1971.”

Al Perkins - “Known primarily for his steel guitar work, the Gibson guitar company called Perkins “the world’s most influential Dobro player”, and even began producing an ‘Al Perkins Signature’ Dobro in 2001 - designed and autographed by Perkins.”

Thanks to goody for sharing these tracks at Dime. goody also noted: “Here’s something we don’t see much of around here. The sound quality is superb - it’s just like they’re in your living room! It’s a generous set, played to a small crowd, and everybody’s having a real great time. You’ll hear why…”

Lineage:
Master tape recorded on a Sony TC-D5M on Maxell XLII90 Tape w/Dolby B.
Played back on a Nak Dragon with Dolby B through an Avid MBox Mini III into a PC running WaveLab 6.11 software.
The resulting WAVs were tracked and faded in Audition.
The resulting WAVs were then converted to FLAC [Level 8] and a .ffp was generated using Trader’s Little Helper.
The FLACs were tagged using foobar 2000 v1.2.6.

STILL RUNNING ON EMPTY

July 13, 2013 – 4:47 am

These days Jackson Browne has been lending his name and songs to numerous causes and charities.

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

JACKSON BROWNE
Newport Folk Festival 2012 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Newport, RI, USA; July 29, 2012. Broadcast on WFUV-FM, Bronx, NY. Ex FM stereo. Early dropout on Track 3, also on the webstream. Shit word censored by radio station on Track 10.

Like the Eagles, Jackson Browne hasn’t changed. His music is firmly acoustic, singer-songwriter fare. These days, Browne no longer makes albums with the charts in mind. He is comfortable to play his fave tunes and nurture new talent along the way. Browne is noted as an activist. He sued John McCain in 2008 for using his song Running On Empty without permission. Browne gets invited to many charity shows and is supportive of environmental causes.

It’s still those songs from the ’70s that continue to attract like an old friend. A Child In These Hills, The Late Show, Take It Easy and Our Lady Of The Well all done with Sara Watkins. He’s touring America right now. For those fans who happen to be far away, here’s a show from last year’s Newport Folk Festival with thanks to tamlyn for sharing on DIME.
- The Little Chicken

Thanks also to Haegar for the front cover.

MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA
Seattle 1973 [JEMS Master Recording, 2CD]

Live at the Paramount Theater, Seattle, WA; November 17, 1973. Good to very good audience recording.

Thanks to JEMS for taping and transferring the show; and to uninvited94 for sharing it at The Traders’ Den.

Uploader’s notes:

This is one of the last shows the original lineup played before breaking up [in 1973]. This should be a previously uncirculated show prior to July 2009.

Due to the pressures of sudden fame, exhaustion and a lack of communication, the original band began to fray at the edges as 1973 rolled on. The stress was further exacerbated by a disastrous recording session (from a personal relationship standpoint) at London’s Trident Studios that found some of the players not speaking to others. The project was never fully completed. The last straw came as John McLaughlin read an interview in Crawdaddy! magazine in which Jan Hammer and Jerry Goodman expressed their frustrations with John’s leadership style. An effort to fix things back in New York fell short. - wikipedia

Music fan glasnostrd19 added: “The last few months of this original band’s existence were the intensest. It was like a volcanic eruption seeing this band live.”

NEIL YOUNG - BOULDER 1971

NEIL YOUNG
Colorado 1971 [Screamer-04013, 1CD]

Live at the Macky Auditorium, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO; January 27, 1971. Good to fairly good audience recording.

At druglessdouglas.com, DJ Drugless Douglas wrote: “Neil played solo - acoustic guitar and piano. This was over a year before Harvest was released, but Neil played several songs from that upcoming album. There was no warm-up act.

“During the show, we couldn’t figure out why there were so many dishes being broken out in the lobby. At the end of the show, we were asked to leave through the side doors. We found out then that those “breaking dishes” were actually breaking windows - there was a riot by those who didn’t have tickets. So much for peace, love and tie-dye.”

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2007.

This show has been reseeded at Dime and uploader Babbo1 added these notes:

Here’s the second night in Boulder from the 1971 tour. The sound is pretty good, comparable to the recording from the 26th (both are bootleg-sourced), but the real distinction is the near-riot that broke out as several hundred University of Colorado students tried to crash the sold-out show, breaking the glass in the foyer doors at Macky Auditorium and fighting off police armed with firehoses. You can hear some of the commotion in the background.

Gsparaco, at collectorsmusicreviews.com, wrote: “Young is at his most magnetic in encouraging the audience to sing along to Sugar Mountain. ‘Here comes the chorus… You sing the words with me. Even if you don’t know the words, burp or something. This verse isn’t as good as the first verse. You sing loud to compensate’….  a very nice document from his late 1970 early 1971 Journey Through The Past solo tour.”

DOMINOS ON A ROLL

DEREK AND THE DOMINOS
Port Chester 1970: UPGRADE [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, New York. Late Show, December 5, 1970. Pitch corrected by DIMER Goody. Remastered without EQ from 1st generation original taper safety reel. Very good audience stereo. Headphones or play loud for stereo.

For an old Sony(?) cassette recording, this sounds mighty fine, of course after tweaking by a pair of fans at DIME. The opening song might lead you to think it’s a mess but be patient. There’s a clearer soundstage as the show progresses and you can make out all the instruments fairly well. But as the dynamic duo also say “it ain’t hi-fi”. So curb your expectations, the fine performance will make up for the sonics. Now onwards with what it will sound like.

“Fine stereo ‘audience’ - Clearest & most glitch-free version ever! - but it ain’t hi-fi.

“Warts: Occasional mike motion. Some dull spots missed but reduced or fixed most. Some glitches unrepairable. Some volume/high end fluctuation throughout.

“NEEDS BASS - Turn it up!

“Toe Fat was the opening act.”

“COMPARISON CLAUSE: This is a known first generation, remastered without EQ, & UPGRADES previously DIMED versions: “The Beat Goes On”, “Feast Away”, QuinnEZkaMo ‘06. “Feast Away” had bass EQ’d in, which is nice, but this source is definitely better quality with more high end (keyboards for example!) & many problems were repaired.

“Thanks to DIMER Goody, the pitch master, for his prompt & careful assistance with correction in that direction. The show is perhaps best summed up by the voice near the taper’s microphone as “Crossroads” begins, “HEAVY!”.”

“I’ve been quite pleased at the reception to my forays into the Dominos camp, so here’s a freaking fantastic performance to further the listening pleasure of those, like myself, who find this material is like green grass to a cow’s cud. Clapton delivers in absolutely stunning style. Whitlock is on fire during this show - his keyboards & vocals are extra-terrestial, soulful & sublime - definitely was tapped into the source on this evening. Man, the jamming in the last few minutes of ‘Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad’ is so reminiscent of the Allmans. Ferocious vocals & jamming in ‘Tell The Truth’. A first class performance from one of the greatest rock tours the planet has yet to experience. Hopefully this raises the sound quality bar enough so it can be regurgitated & chewed repeatedly.

“I am seriously pleased with the results after days of work. Don’t forget to turn up the bass because I ain’t doin’ your equalisin’ for ya. It’s really great one. Enjoy! share, give, spread peace.

Yers truly, Kneesfudd, June 29, 2013.

Many thanks to the original taper & trader, the Florida Kid. All artwork courtesy of ethiessen1, who also noted: “This can be overburned to a single disc if you omit the audience cheering.”

THE ROLLING STONES
Hyde Park 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Hyde Park, London, UK; July 6, 2013. Good to very good audience recording.

And here’s one more for the road…

Thanks to wb for recording the show and to bounty for sharing the tracks at HungerCity.

This is what Vanessa Thorpe wrote in The Guardian:

The set began, naturally enough, with Start Me Up and then, 44 years after they first invited 200,000 fans to listen to them for free in Hyde Park, the Rolling Stones were off. And it sounded like – as if they really had never stopped. Next song up and Sir Mick’s voice was calling out the hallowed lyric “It’s only Rock n’ Roll (but I like it)”. And they did: even the most sunburned and dehydrated in the crowd of 65,000 found the strength to cheer and scream. “Anyone here who was here in 1969?” asked Jagger. “Welcome back – it is nice to see you again.”

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
Berlin 1998 [no label, 1CD]

Live at De Loft, Berlin, Germany; November 29, 1998. Excellent soundboard.

With reference to Led Zep, here are Queens Of The Stone Age… punctuation be damned…

To give his show, No Reservations, an element of unpredictability, but probably more for his love of punk and rock, food writer and critic Anthony Bourdain has featured musicians such as David Johansen, Ted Nugent and Alice Cooper. Fans of Queens Of The Stone Age must have wondered “why?” when the group showed up in the Holiday Special in December 2007. What were the rockers doing with Anthony Bourdain, of all people? And singing Christmas tunes? In fact they came across as fairly ordinary, goofy even, guys who make atmospheric music. Wouldn’t be surprised if some of the show’s viewers went out and got the group’s albums.

Musically, the group’s music has mutated or evolved over the years. Here is a show from the “early” years (QOTSA formed in 1996) whenthey were generally regarded as a hard rock band (founder Josh Homme was formerly from Kyuss).

KEVIN COYNE WITH ZOOT MONEY - ROCKPALAST 1979

July 6, 2013 – 5:00 am

KEVIN COYNE WITH ZOOT MONEY
Rockpalast 1979 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the WDR TV Studio L, Cologne, Germany; January 4, 1979. Ex FM stereo.

Kevin Coyne was arguably reaching his musical peak in the late 1970s… he was certainly approaching his cultural apex, as punk rock (and the vocal patronage of Johnny Rotten) gave final focus to what had hitherto been a voice in the wilderness, and a new deal with Virgin Records breathed fresh life into his songwriting. That year’s Millionaires & Teddy Bears album remains one of his finest, and the accompanying tour - Coyne alone on stage to begin with, with Zoot Money arriving about midway through - saw him deliver some of his most powerful live performances in years. Certainly this recording of a “typical” show (as if anything Coyne ever did could be so described) ranks alongside any of his conventional releases, and knocks the then still-recent In Living Black and White live album out of contention altogether.

Flitting across his entire career-to-date, Coyne is spectacular. So what if his frequently self-deprecating between-songs chatter is all but lost on the German audience? The tone of his voice tells them what they need to know, while a set that opens with “Araby” and progresses on through “Right On Her Side” and “Amsterdam” is defiantly not setting out to merely entertain.

“Having A Party,” however, is where the first blade slips in, as a curse upon the music industry in general is given scalpel-sharp acidity by the recent misadventures of Sid Vicious - freshly out on bail, Vicious was still living when this show was recorded. But Coyne’s mid-song cry of “poor Sid” nevertheless reminds us of the real-life tragedy that lay beneath the Machiavellian drama that was playing out on the streets of Manhattan, and sets the scene for the remainder of the set, a seething, burning program that doesn’t allow the audience to sit comfortably for a moment. When Coyne introduces “Brother Of Mine” with a dedication to Johnny Rotten, you can feel the audience’s awkwardness.

The arrival of Zoot Money (at the start of Disc Two) does introduce some levity to the proceedings, and also allows Coyne to stretch out a little - they execute a punchy “Dynamite Daze,” a frothy “Pretty Park,” a spectral “Don’t Blame Mandy,” and a positively futurist “Eastbourne Ladies,” rendered all the more electric by the moody soundscapes with which Money prefaces it, and the staccato space-rock organ that drives it. But you simply cannot play favorites with this performance. Two CDs and not a wasted moment between them, the only thing that could be better than listening to it would be to catch the original television broadcast that spawned it. It’s out there some place, after all. - Dave Thompson

Note: Music writer Dave Thompson has a new book out. On June 1st 1974, the Rainbow Theatre in London hosted the first ever performance by what was (at least by those folk who’d heard of the artists) described as the greatest supergroup of the era. Thompson’s book, June 1st 1974: Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Nico, Eno, Mike Oldfield and Robert Wyatt: The Greatest Supergroup of the Seventies, is about the historic gig on the day and its ramifications.
