Notes
1: I believe that the Groningen show started on 1st May but went on until after midninght, so finished on 2nd May. The songs here are from the encore, so are technically from 2nd May. Rachel appeared on stage with Lou.
2: the 1977-11-01 tracks are mistitled/misdated on the CD artwork - the above details are correct.
3: the 1975-07 tracks are misdated on the CD artwork. The venue might be Perth, but Lou was playing in Japan on 7th July 1975.

ERIC CLAPTON

SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN

September 10, 2012 – 4:28 am

You’ll need a ship, captain.

JOHN COLTRANE QUARTET
The Sun Ship Sessions 1965 [no label, 1CD]

Sessions at RCA-Victor Studios, New York City, August 26, 1965. Broadcast on WKCR, Sept 23, 2001. Ex FM stereo.

“In 2001, WKCR made a broadcast containing the unreleased takes of the Sunship Album. These takes have never been released officially.” - Maurizio.

Sun Ship was an album that followed in the same vein as the late 1964 album, A Love Supreme. That was Coltrane’s famous album dedicated to the Supreme Being, God. After A Love Supreme, Coltrane continued with his spiritual journey which gave power to his music. The albums that followed, Ascension, Meditations, Kulu Se Mama and the post-humously released Om and Infinity, all recorded in 1965, displayed a man describing his faith and beliefs through music and chants. Sun Ship was recorded in August of that year.

Coltrane chose free jazz as the vehicle for his searching. Although neither Albert Ayler nor Archie Shepp or Pharoah Sanders, the free jazz advocates, sit in on these sessions, Tyner, Garrison and Jones felt the music just as deeply.

Sun Ship is an underrated album in the Coltrane canon but as the reviewers at the Penguin Guide To Jazz suggest, “it’s high time this fine record was better known”.

Thanks to Maurizio and u014945 who uploaded the show on Dime, April, 2012.

BONNIE RAITT - MANCHESTER 2003

BONNIE RAITT
Manchester 2003 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Manchester Apollo, Manchester, UK; June 19, 2003. Very good audience recording.

This is what Dave Simpson wrote in The Guardian then:

Raitt is in Britain promoting the new album The Best Of Bonnie Raitt, but she ignores its track listing and plucks out songs at random. (”That way we mean it.”) The set takes in raunchy blues, funk and subtle African flavours; it stretches from Woman Be Wise, on her 1971 debut, to a clutch from her recent album, Silver Lining, including the lovely title track, written by David Gray. Implausibly, Raitt may be in her prime. The way she shrieks, “I’m a woman, not a girl,” would turn most men to jelly, and her new songs receive the benefit of her kiss-off attitude and perfectly lived-in voice…

Raitt, whose website boasts a whole section devoted to “activism”, performs Mose Allison’s Vietnam song, Everybody’s Cryin’ Mercy, “because it seems the right time to sing it again”, and she dismisses US foreign policy as if she were swatting a fly. After the political comes the emotional, including a tear-stained I Can’t Make You Love Me that displays the endearing human being behind the strong facade. After two standing ovations, she promises to return “if I’m still mobile!” - which can hardly be in doubt.

This was shared in 2003; and a word of thanks to Tom Dog.

CHRIS ISAAK - GERMANY 1991

September 6, 2012 – 4:29 am

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

CHRIS ISAAK
Heart Full Of Soul [Great Live Records GLR9101/02, 2CD]

Live at “Tor 3″, Dusseldorf, Germany; March 1991. (This show has also been listed by some as from Stockholm, Sweden.) Very good to excellent audience recording.

There is a bit of confusion over the location of this show because there is no information on the release other than “Recorded live in concert 1991″. A search on the net indicates that this bootleg is a rarity, probably because it is not widely circulated and probably because there aren’t many copies of the original boot going around.

For a while, Isaak was seen as the next Roy Orbison but from Wicked Game to movies such as Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and That Thing You Do!, and his own TV show, the singer-songwriter has managed and continues to chart his own path.

THE DEGAS SUITE

September 5, 2012 – 11:39 am

Music by Duke Ellington for an uncompleted film.

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

JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA
Duke Ellington’s Degas Suite [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Rose Theater, NY, NY, and broadcast February 17, 2011. The performance was first broadcast May 7, 2009. Ex FM stereo.

“In the ’80s, the late Mercer Ellington donated his dad’s stockpile tapes to Danish Public Radio. A report from the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors (IAJRC) claims this consisted of ‘120 studio sessions, 35 location recordings and 50 interviews.’ In other words - this archive isn’t anywhere near exhausted. A huge number of stockpile tracks appeared in one hit in the late ’80s as a 10-CD (or cassette) Private Collection. They are available individually or in various boxes.” - matthewasprey.wordpress.com

Inside this collection was The Degas Suite, a fully formed composition made for an unfinished documentary on the painter Edgar Degas’ paintings of racetrack scenes. The Suite was recorded in New York in 1968 and 1970 for photographer Sam Shaw’s documentary. It was mostly recorded at National Recording Studio in New York on November 6, 1968 and remained unreleased until 1987.

The first boxset of The Private Collection was released in Denmark by LMR in 1987. The most common of the sets were from Saja (US), Kaz Jazz Masters (UK) and Unidisc (Canada). WEA released the set in Germany and Japan. The Saja version is well regarded by collectors also because it is the only one that has all the movements in the Degas Suite individually tracked.

In 2009, Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra played the entire suite with Ted Nash conducting. Our copy of this radio show comes from a recent 2011 rebroadcast. Unfortunately, parts of the music are spoken over by announcer Eric Reed.

What was originally conceived as four horns and Ellington on piano grew to become a big band. The Degas Suite is a sophisticated blend of piano, horns and reeds in a late period big band. Ellington left a lot of open spaces for his piano to lead. He was equally generous to share space with his sidemen. This is elegant music to illustrate his topic - Degas’ paintings.

Much time has passed since Ellington first recorded The Degas Suite in 1968. Already the CDs are either hard-to-find or out-of-print. The music however is timeless and also rare. Thanks to mdshrk1 for sharing his FM recording.

Ellington’s Degas Suite was included in a 10-CD box set, The Private Collection, released in the ’80s. Unfortunately, that release had many editions and depending on which set you have, the Degas Suite could either be on Vol 5 or Vol 7. Most of these sets are currently hard-to-find or out-of-print. But The Degas Suite does exist as a for-sale digital download albeit in MP3 quality. Buy it here.

JEFF BECK
Return Of The Axe Murderer [no label, 1CD]

Mix of radio broadcasts (BBC 1967-71) and live tracks. Very good audio.
One Of The Best [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Paris Theatre, London; June 29, 1972. Very good radio/Pre-FM? broadcast.

Those late ’60s and early ’70s Jeff Beck BBC tracks have been so widely circulated that most fans would have gotten them in one form or another. And some of these tracks are duplicated across different bootleg releases.

Return Of The Axe Murderer: The first seven tracks are also found on the BBC Compilation (link) which we have recently shared. Richie Unterberger at allmusic.com noted: “This is a good single-disc 68-minute assortment of BBC sessions, outtakes, and live and interview material… It’s true this disc is mostly for serious Beck fanatics due to its minor imperfections and bits’n'pieces assembly, but these are fine performances overall, with some excellent and occasionally mind-spinning guitar work (especially on Let Me Love You and (I Know) I’m Losing You).”

One Of The Best: This is a recording of the June 29, 1972 gig at the Paris Theatre, London, which was previously shared by Philip Cohen - thanks Phil! (link). Whoever compiled this included two bonus tracks: Goodbye Porkpie Hat and Crossroads (with Clapton on vocals?). They have also resequenced some of the tracks.

This is the tracklist according to the BBC Transcription Reels:
1 Ice Cream Cakes
2 Morning Dew
3 Goin’ Down
4 Definitely Maybe
5 News Ways/Train Train
6 Ain’t No Sunshine
7 Got The Feeling
8 Let Me Love You

Some notes on the BBC Transcription Reel (posted at musictravellers.blogspot):

After Rod Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group in 1971, Beck had intended to form a power trio with Vanilla Fudge members Carmine Appice (drums) and Tim Bogert (bass), but those plans were derailed when he suffered a serious car crash in 1970. By the time he recuperated in 71, Bogart and Appice were playing in Cactus, so the guitarist had formed a new version of the Jeff Beck Group.

Featuring keyboardist Max Middleton, drummer Cozy Powell, bassist Clive Chaman, and vocalist Bobby Tench, the new band recorded Rough And Ready (1971) and Jeff Beck Group (1972). Neither album attracted much attention. A far superior artifact of this lineup is the group’s European Tour in 1972. Taken from a Radio 1 “In Concert” these reels boast the band in devastating form. Of all the Jeff Beck bands, this lineup was always the most musically satisfying. They possessed a depth and quality that remains unparalled by Beck’s subsequent project bands. From the weeping duo guitars of Beck and Tench on the ballad Definitely Maybe to the absolutely definitive soul classic rendition of “Ain’t No Sunshine”, the band preen and strut like possessed demons. Beck’s walking on water!

Cactus dissolved in late 1972, and Beck, Bogert and Appice formed a power trio the following year. The group’s lone studio album was widely panned due to its plodding arrangements and weak vocals, and the group disbanded the following year.

THE PHILIP COHEN COLLECTION: ERIC CLAPTON - JAPAN 1997 (DISC 5 and 6)

September 4, 2012 – 4:31 am

ERIC CLAPTON
In The West Of Japan [Wow Wow Wow, Disc 5/6 of 11]

Live at the Osaka Jo Hall, Osaka, Japan; October 22, 1997. Very good to excellent audience recording.

Following Clapton’s 1997 tour of Japan, Wow Wow Wow had released an 11-CD box set showcasing the following sets:
October 20, 1997 - Marine Messe, Fukuoka
October 21, 1997 - Castle Hall, Osaka
October 22, 1997 - Osaka Jo Hall, Osaka
October 24, 1997 - Green Arena, Hiroshim
October 25, 1997 - Rainbow Hall, Nagoya

Included in the set is a three-track bonus CD featuring: Change The World (from soundboard tape, October 13, 1997); Modern Girl (outtake from the Pilgrim album) and Pilgrim (a cappella version).

One could say Clapton was cruising - the setlist remained the same! A consummate entertainer, the guitarist did not disappoint his Japanese fans. Overall, a nice collection for those who want the Japan 1997 shows.

Thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.
