THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS
New York 1971 [no label, 1CD]

Stop The Vietnam War Benefit. Live at the Cathedral Of St John The Divine, New York City, NY; 1971. Good to very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to DavMar77 for sharing this show at Dime in 2005. DavMar noted: “Here’s another good Chambers Brothers show from 1971… It’s an FM but the mix is uneven throughout. Not bad though and quite rare.”

From the wikipedia:

The Chambers Brothers are a soul-music group, best known for its 1968 hit record, the 11-minute long song “Time Has Come Today”. The group was part of the wave of new music that integrated American blues and gospel traditions with modern psychedelic and rock elements. Based on their Southern roots, the brothers brought a raw authenticity to their recordings and live performances that was missing from many other acts of that era. Their music has been kept alive through heavy use in film soundtracks.

In 2003, the home of Lola and Lester Chambers was broken in to and their record collection, consisting of over 60 Chambers Brothers albums and over 100 singles, was stolen. Lola Chambers had spent 25 years collecting Chambers Brothers records at various venues to leave these for their sons. Lester Chambers developed a number of medical problems that went untreated because he lacked insurance. He later became homeless, sleeping in a rehearsal hall in Novato, California, until Yoko Ono paid to rent a home for him and his son Dylan.

In March 2012 Lester started an Internet campaign that went viral to publicize what he claims to be a lack of equitable royalty payments. His Facebook posting received over 2,500 “likes” and over 2,000 “shares” in the first 15 hours on his “Wall”; it was featured on the homepage of Reddit and there were hundreds of tweets about the story. [Click here for more.]

On December 10 2012, Lester Chambers and Alexis Ohanian (Reddit Co-founder) teamed up to launch a kickstarter project together with the intent to make a new album titled “Lester’s Time Has Come.” Lester also spoke with reddit users on December 13, 2012 as an AMA (Ask Me Anything) event and to mention the kickstarter project to those interested.

FRANK ZAPPA - NEW YORK 1981

FRANK ZAPPA
New York 1981 [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Ritz, New York City, NY; November 17, 1981. Very good FM broadcast.

Nothing like starting the new year with Frank Zappa… best wishes to everyone.

Thanks to the person who initially shared it at Dime; to simanb for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den and to everyone for keeping it alive.

This is what HytekFred added at The Traders’ Den:

I believe that within the past few years, Guitar Player magazine conducted a poll to make a list of memorable concerts, and this particular show at the Ritz was named “Best Concert Ever By Anyone.” Pretty high praise, eh?

Al DiMeola played on “Clowns on Velvet” and “Ride Like the Wind” (!) at the Ritz, NYC, with Frank’s band on 11/17/81. I believe Al requested that his solo on “Clowns” not be released because he was unhappy with it for some reason. In fact, they didn’t even play at the same time then since Frank can be heard on the tape complaining that they didn’t have enough hookups to plug in two guitars simultaneously. As far as I know, that’s the only time these two great Italians ever got together in concert.

WOODY SHAW
Chicago 1979 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Jazz Showcase, Chicago, Illionois; December 31, 1979. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

Woody Shaw, who passed away in 1989 of kidney failure at the age of 44, was considered the “last innovator” in the jazz trumpet lineage. Here he was, saying goodbye to 1979 and welcoming the ’80s.

Similarly, his music also allows us to leave 2012 behind and invigorates the spirit for 2013.

Thanks to Wilbur who recorded and shared the tracks at Dime.

ELP - DES MOINES 1977 (WITH ORCHESTRA)

December 30, 2012 – 5:18 am

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

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER
Des Moines 1977 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, Des Moines, Iowa; June 12, 1977. Good to very good audience recording.

Thanks to the person who taped the show; to Orangeboy for sharing it at The Traders’ Den in 2006 and to Slowburn04 for the artwork.

Orangeboy commented: “Notes from a great ELP fan: …it’s an amazingly important show in ELP history (and I would argue rock history) not just because it’s a rare recording of the orchestral tour, but because it’s the very day that the orchestra was dropped to avoid complete financial ruin. It’s a bittersweet day in ELP history.”

Edgecroft, at The Traders’ Den, added this bit of history:

After the massive Brain Salad Surgery tour of 1974, ELP took almost three years off from performing live. Keith recorded a piano concerto and Greg did a bunch of songs with an orchestra. At some point, they decided that instead of putting out three solo albums, they would put out a double album with a solo side each and a group side, which also featured an orchestra. Works Vol. 1.

They decided to go out on tour with a 57-piece orchestra and a six-person choir, each instrument individually miked. The whole thing was a massive undertaking. From the beginning, they knew that it could be financially disastrous. Because of union contracts with the classical musicians, they could only play three or four shows a week and couldn’t travel more than 100 miles a day. Everything had to go right to even break even. But they so believed in what they were doing that they went ahead anyway. They knew it was mad but they didn’t care.

Well, things didn’t end up going so well. They were relying on three massive outdoor shows to cover the costs of the rest of the dates of the first leg. The one in Chicago was a great success, but another was cancelled because of a Led Zeppelin riot and the other because of poor ticket sales. They were bleeding money. I guess they lost millions, in 1977 money.

The entire tour with the orchestra lasted only 12 dates. This is the final date. This is the day that the dream died. Before orangeboy shared this with us, there were only four recordings of this first part of the tour that have surfaced, and one of those is incomplete. From the sample I’ve heard, this is by far the best recording of any of them. I can’t wait to hear the whole thing.

They did keep paying the orchestra during the time they were out recouping their losses as a three piece and they did bring them back for three shows in July in New York and a final show in Montreal at the end of August, but this is really the end of the orchestra tour.

By the way, the classic ELP song From The Beginning (from 1972) was only ever performed in the 70’s at these 12 concerts.

TEN YEARS AFTER - WINTERLAND 1972

December 29, 2012 – 4:50 am

ALVIN LEE R.I.P. 1944-2013

British rock guitarist Alvin Lee, a member of the band Ten Years After, has died aged 68. His family announced on his official website, alvinlee.com, that he unexpectedly died on March 6, 2013 following complications during routine surgery. The BBC also reported that the Nottingham-born musician rose to fame after appearing at the Woodstock festival in 1969. The band, who had eight Top 40 albums in the UK, had their biggest hit in 1971 with I’d Love To Change the World. “We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician,” said the statement from his wife and daughters.

TEN YEARS AFTER
San Francisco 1972 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Winterland, San Francisco, CA; December 2, 1972. Good to very good audience recording.

Thanks to Doinker for sharing this in 2006.

This is what Doinker noted:

After being kept under wraps for so long, I am pleased as punch to present you with this peachy-keen (that’s “DAMN GOOD” in slang English) set from Alvin Lee and Co…

You will notice that they didn’t perform their stock repetoire that evening. Maybe they were dazzled by Messrs Cornick and Co [Wild Turkey had played earlier] and wanted to fight back or something like that. Either way, Alvin is in a startling good mood and most certainly does NOT play as if the janitor plugged him in for the evening. Quite the party animal isn’t he?

Oh, yes… There’s that taper’s assistant going at it again, fortunately not too often. “That’s All She Wrote, Mayn!!!”

You may be able to tune him out, or you may be able to laugh at him or you may be able to laugh with him, but you can’t edit him out. Just think… he was in the presence of Billy Graham AND got to witness this stuff in person. Oh, my God… if all of us could do the same via time machine.

MARK KNOPFLER AND EMMYLOU HARRIS
Verona 2006 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Arena di Verona, Verona, Italy; June 3, 2006. Excellent FM broadcast.

Thanks to scarecrowjo who recorded and shared this show at Dime in 2006.

Note posted at www.oneverybootleg.nl/030606sb.htm:

The first soundboard recording from the All The Roadrunning tour 2006, recorded at the beautiful arena of Verona. A large part of this show is also available on DVD: Verona 2006. The show was broadcast in two parts (21st and 28th August 2006) on German NDR radio. Initially, the Hamburg 2006 show would be broadcast, but due to technical problems, this recording failed and the radio station got permission to record and broadcast the Verona concert instead. So here it is; great quality, very good versions.

Thanks also to Nico for the artwork; and to Guy Fletcher for the Verona arena shot.

IRON BUTTERFLY
Redondo Beach 1995 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Strand, Redondo Beach, CA; April 25, 1995. Very good to excellent audience recording?

Lest we forget… Over the years, Iron Butterfly have gone through many lineup changes and 2012 is a particularly painful year for the band and fans of the group, which is bookended by deaths. Former guitarist Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt died on January 2, 2012, at the age of 63, due to cirrhosis of the liver; and bassist Lee Dorman, who had a history of heart trouble, died on December 21, 2012, at the age of 70.

This is one of those gigs at a time when original vocalist Doug Ingle was back with the group.

RENAISSANCE
Lancaster, PA 1978 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA; December 4, 1978. Excellent BBC PreFM (soundboard).

On November 20, 2012, Michael Dunford, one of the founding members of English prog rock group Renaissance, died from a cerebral hemorrhage. He was 68.

Thanks to glasnostrd19 for sharing this show on Dime in memory of the composer and guitarist.

This is what glasnostrd19 noted:

I’ve reseeded a few Renaissance shows lately to pay tribute to the recently passed Michael Dunford, and other than a 1978 BBC show from London, UK (which has been officially released on CD), this is probably the nicest one I have, between sound and music quality, that isn’t already on this tracker.

Since Christmas is the most celebrated holiday of the year around the world, I wanted to share the best recording I have (so far, that may change soon, let’s hope…) of the best female singer I’ve ever heard. This was recorded during the “Song For All Seasons” tour which was very enjoyable. Don’t recall who first seeded this nice gem, but it was last posted in 2010 and definitely deserves another whirl here on Dime so here it is.

BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA
Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza
Allen, TX 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Allen Event Center, Allen, TX; December 16, 2012. Very good to excellent audience recording.

Here’s to a rockin’ rockabilly Christmas.

The Los Angeles Times calls it “a wildly eclectic party… featuring a rocked-up compendium of classic cuts from several eras in decades past, plus a sprinkling of Christmas standards tricked out in appropriately swingin’ settings… delivered with a punky verve whose sheer joy is nigh irresistible.”

Thanks to Whotapes, who recorded the show and shared it at Dime.

Whotapes noted:

Excellent show by the Brian Setzer Orchestra. I always enjoy these Chrstmas shows he does. I am very happy with how this recording came out. The lady on my right was a bit of a Whohoo screamer but mostly between the songs so not too distracting. I cut some of the Intro music (Burning Love) and Outro (Little Saint Nick) to keep in Dimes policy but it does not cut any of his music, just a very small bit of talking.

THE LINCOLN PARK MARK COLLECTION: THE ROLLING STONES - NOV 25, 2012 (IEM-SOUNDBOARD/AUD MATRIX)

December 24, 2012 – 5:12 am

GUITAR MAN RUSSELL “SKIP” GILDERSLEEVE R.I.P.

Russell “Skip” Gildersleeve has passed away on September 17, 2013. He was 57. Among musicians, Skip was the guitar tech who had worked with Bob Seger, Rush and Steely Dan, among others. As a music fan, Skip had even reached out to other fans across the sea, generously offering music either for sharing or for personal listening (in instances where sharing was not possible). As a result, BigO readers benefiited whenever there was an Evil Dr Louie or Lincoln Park Mark offering to be shared - that’s Skip giving props to a place he loved.

We shall miss you Skip.

Live at the 02 Arena, London, UK; November 25, 2012. IEM (in ear monitor - soundboard)/AUD Matrix. Excellent audio.

An audience recording of this show was previously shared here.

This is an audio upgrade, a soundboard-audience matrix, just out from Godfather Records. And it sounds great.

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing the tracks.
