  2. Another great set from Paul. Thanks again Big O!

    By Ernie Clark on Oct 19, 2013

  3. Are you all deaf ? The man’s voice is gone - try shutting your eyes and really listen. It’s just like the Stones now - useless playing from Keef and Ron - they all sound like third rate Karaoke versions of their former selves.

    By Dale on Oct 19, 2013

  4. dale it seems as if everyone is trying to hold onto yesterday[no pun intended] is it because all of us aging fans haven`t found any musical alternatives lately that really turn our cranks or is it just a nostalgia because these were the bands /artists of our youth ?
    think of it..the posts that seem to draw the most feedback are the dylan, stones, mcartney, who etc…can`t we let go ?

    By sluggo on Oct 20, 2013

  5. sir paul’s voice isnt what it once was but hes certainly better than dylan or tom waits but who isnt? i think that the classic rockers still recording or performing have had their best days. their music is still good but they wont be producing anything as great as their best albums. i dont really need to fill my hard drive with endless live shows from the classic rockers when there really isnt much of a difference between shows in a given tour.

    the greatest rock music has already been done but theres still a lot of good stuff out there. it doesnt really break any new ground but its worthy. i have my tix for the drive by truckers + the old 97s.

    stacks o wax that ive been spinning lately include john paul keith “memphis 3am”, the sadies “internal sounds”, the wood brothers “the muse”, lucius “wildewomen”, barrence whitfield & the savages “dig thy savage soul”, dog party “lost control”, and emiliana torrini “tookah”. yo bigo- i wouldnt mind seeing some of their live shows here thankyouverymuch.

    By barth on Oct 20, 2013

  6. My 22 year old son saw Macca at Bonaroo this year and said it was “the best concert I have ever seen”. This was his 4th Bonaroo and 2nd Macca show (although he was 10 the last time. He is an EDM fan and an admitted hipster. That is the power of Macca’s songs, from the Beatles to Wings to New. Unlike some contemporaries (Stones, Who), he has continued to make interesting new music, as evidenced by New. His voice is going, but I don’t care cuz he still commands the stage like no one else.
    PS: I second barth’s request for some live Barrence Whitfield and the Savages. A monster club act that deserves a wider audience.

    By Johnny Kinkdom on Oct 20, 2013

  7. Apart from the obviously promotional new ‘New’ n ‘Save Us’ isn’t this an odd choice of songs? ‘Junior’s Farm’to ‘Obla…’ to ‘Get Back’ he just fascinates me with his recent choices of song from the Beatles’ back catalogue. e.G. Mr Kite . . .
    And yes, the voice is sounding shot but at 71 years old hardly a surprise. I for one am enjoying the music and the energy he brings to this round of promo stuff.

    Check the latest ‘busking’ session on the back of a truck in Lunnun in the Garden!
    Life in the Ole Dog yet!
    Sir Paul is a legend and ‘national treasure’
    Can ya diggit? I can!

    By swappers on Oct 20, 2013

  8. add the bottlerockets to the list of shows id like to see here. these guys shoulda been contenders.

    By barth on Oct 20, 2013

  9. I agree that Sir Paul’s voice is faltering like most of his contemporaries. By most I mean that some have aged well. Neil Young sounds better than ever IMHO.

    By eastsidecellardweller on Oct 20, 2013

  10. Barth,

    Agree about the Bottlerockets. I saw them as the opening act and backing band on the last two Marshall Crenshaw tours. There’s plenty of good new music out there, and well worth the effort to seek it out.

    By Brad on Oct 20, 2013

  11. good call on the drive by truckers…nice to see a common sense discussion for a change.

    By sluggo on Oct 20, 2013

  12. Can’t say this about Neil Young as his voice has always been the same. ;-)

    By datdemdar on Oct 20, 2013

  13. good point datdemdar. Brad i saw one of those shows it was outstanding. the bottlerockets are on the great label bloodshot records, along with the yahoos, the waco brothers, robbie fulks, and the detroit cobras. add their shows to my want list of boots to be found here someday.

    By barth on Oct 20, 2013

  14. There is still a lot of great OLD R&R out there that hasn’t been heard by the masses. A friend of mine turned me on to a song called “Cross Cut Saw” by a UK group by the name of “The Groundhogs”. Great tune although at times the singer sounds like the Cookie Monster. I looked them up on the net and seems they’ve been around in one incarnation or another since the early sixties! Guitarist and Singer’s name is Peter McPhee. I finally heard the rest of the album and it’s really good stuff…for want of a better name…psychedelic blues with a touch of corn cob. Is there any rare live stuff out there?

    By eastsidecellardweller on Oct 20, 2013

  15. consider that this set is at 10am so if his voice isnt perfect that is just one small part of the reason. im not a singer but i know if i was going to try to sing i certainly wouldnt want to try when i first woke up. another is that he is in his early 70s. i wonder how well any of us will sound at his age professional or not.

    so we’re still missing 2 songs here. darn! well thank u for supplying us with 4 more than i had. too bad the 4 times square songs werent professionally recorded / filmed.

    By darth on Oct 20, 2013

  16. eastsidecellardweller - there are 9 groundhogs shows on sugarmegs. 2 shows are from 71. 2 from 84. 2 from 1990. 1 from 98. and the last 2 from 2004 and 2010. theyre all from germany the uk and denmark.

    By darth on Oct 20, 2013

    You come through once again!

    If you have any live shows by GHOST / GHOST BC…. it would be much appreciated! I saw them live in concert twice this past week!

    By THE Russian Assassin on Oct 20, 2013

  18. datdemdar…I agree that Neil’s voice is an acquired taste…acquired it back in 1969 when I first heard Down By the River as a teenager. At times his voice has faltered…at least within the context of those who find his voice appealing! Darth, thanks for the info about the Groundhogs on SugarMegs…found it on the net and spent hours searching out shows. BigO has a show listed by Groundhogs but not sure if the same group.

    By eastsidecellardweller on Oct 20, 2013

  19. eastsidecellardweller i saw the groundhogs open for humble pie way back in early 70`s…
    actually a good pie show would be welcome here as well!

    By sluggo on Oct 20, 2013

  20. Barth, this link should take you to and to driveby truckers live concert from 2010. Sounds very good.

    By 5yrsnojob on Oct 20, 2013

  21. thanks 5yrs ill be cranking it up!

    By barth on Oct 21, 2013

  22. for those who want early live drive-by truckers, their smash hit live album “alabama ass whuppin” has been re-released in both cd and vinyl. it was originally released in 2000 and has been out of print for years. it features the adult version of “steve mcqueen” and an explanation of what an alabama ass whuppin’ is.

    By barth on Oct 21, 2013

  23. Sluggo, I read somewhere that Humble Pie the complete Fillmore series was in the works. I believe that Frampton was still in the band when Perfomance was originally released. I didn’t know that the Groundhogs had toured the US…thanks for the info! I saw that BigO had a Groundhogs recording from 1972…wasn’t sure if it was the UK group. Would be nice to hear it…how about it BigO?!!!!

    By eastsidecellardweller on Oct 21, 2013

  24. about the humble pie fillmore series -

    By darth on Oct 21, 2013

  25. eastside, I saw something earlier this week about the grand treatment being given to the Pie and Rockin` the fillmore…This has always been high on my best of live recordings list , Steve Marriot was sure something to see and hear live , man he had a big voice for such a small guy..
    Saw the Pie a number of times, only saw Groundhogs once.

    By sluggo on Oct 21, 2013

  26. Humble Pie’s performances at the Fillmore East in May 1971 will be available in a four CD box on October 29 on Amazon US for $37. It’s every song they played at four shows.

    By Dingus on Oct 21, 2013

  27. sluggo, when I used to attend concerts,Humble Pie never played close enough to where I live. Would have loved to hear Steve Marriot! As a teenybopper of 12, I loved Tin Soldier when it came out…I still love it as an almost 60 bopper. One of the best singles of all time in my estimation. Hey Big O…thanks for the link to the Groundhogs! Much appreciated!

    By eastsidecellardweller on Oct 22, 2013


    By darth on Oct 26, 2013

  29. yes the 8 song version is now complete.. thank u bigo.

    By darth on Oct 26, 2013

  30. alabama ass whuppin’ was never a hit but a good one just the same.

    By lowend darthlick on Oct 26, 2013

  31. true on both counts. please use your own name next time, thanks.

    By lowend darthlick on Oct 26, 2013

  32. i know it’s true.please stop parading around as me.thanks

    By lowend darthlick on Oct 26, 2013

  33. i wasnt sure that i mentioned this earlier so i checked and it seems i hadnt. while i did mention that paul did 3 songs that aired on the jimmy fallon show on oct 7th he also did 7 songs that didnt air. the 3 songs that aired totalled just under 9 mins. the ones that didnt air added up to just over 25mins. the ones that didnt air were - being for the benefit of mr. kite, birthday, ob-la-di, ob-la-da, we can work it out, everybody out there, jet and 8 days a week. the only new song of that batch is the 3rd to last one.
    i made an mp3 of those 7 songs and it is about 36meg. i also made an mp3 of the 3 songs that did air - lady madonna, save us and new. and that is about 12meg. so total length of the entire 10 song set is 34mins. and out of all 10 songs only 3 of them were from the new cd.

    By darth on Oct 26, 2013

  34. i know it’s true.please stop parading around as me.thanks

    ok i’ll parade around as this because this is’re welcome.

    By lowend buttlick on Oct 26, 2013

  35. Darth… you gotta get another hobby than posting TMI.

    By farthbag on Oct 27, 2013

  36. ya, I can’t remember all this useful information that darth gives us. So tired for writing it down, got notebooks stacked to the ceiling of darths links and how many megs each song is…sigh

    By darths mouse on Oct 27, 2013

  37. darth,i’d wish a brain tumour upon you, but where would it take root?.

    By darth's doctor on Oct 27, 2013

  38. Yes, it’s my medical opinion that a brain tumor is about as unlikely for darth as a testicular one.

    By Medical Expert on Oct 27, 2013

  39. stop harassing me u idiots! i dont lie and i admit when im wrong and your the problem not me!

    By lowend buttlick on Oct 27, 2013

  40. i mean stop harassing darth. not me. i’m not darth. i don’t post under other names.

    By lowend buttlick on Oct 27, 2013

  41. i mean darth doesnt post under other names.

    By lowend buttlick on Oct 27, 2013

  42. graham norton is a sort of talk show on the bbc america channel and on the 18th they showed a new show here with repeats periodically thru the week. this weeks show had paul mccartney on and he did some talking and at the end of the show he did one song - new. it was 2′28. i found it on youtube. i think 2 ppl had it if anyone is looking. i personally prefer tv/fm/sbd type recordings when i can get them. if there are collectors of such performances and if anyone doesnt have enough performances of this song this is yet one more -

    in the meantime.. i was watching/listening to the bridge school benefit concert and when i found performances that i wanted to record i was doing that as well. the 2nd to last song that arcade fire did included neil young. the my morning jacket set had neil join them during their 33min set which i recorded all of. i only recorded the last 2 songs of arcade fire’s set altho neil wasnt on the final song. they invited him to play harmonica but he didnt stay. i kept recording not knowing if he would. graham nash came out during elvis costello’s set. neil came out first about 45mins earlier than the show was announced to begin and did approx 50mins. he came out with jack johnsons set also. hearts set sounded good. fun. started off nice but im not a fan of any more than the first song they did. diana krall was nice. queens of the stone age are coming up next as i type this. and i imagine after that csny will close the nite. there will be a couple of repeats of this from what i understand including wed.

    By darth on Oct 27, 2013

  43. eastsidecellardweller: The singer/guitarist of the Groundhogs is called Tony (not Peter) McPhee. The man is a british blues/rock legend. In his younger years he played with John Lee Hooker and John Mayall. His best record with the Groundhogs is a guitar tour de force called SPLIT (1971).
    Cheers Tony

    By Tony Lauber on Oct 31, 2013

  44. graham norton.. who i have mentioned previously sometimes has musical guests. his show is on the bbc america channel and his new show this week is on saturday. this week he has elton john on. its at 10pm. in all likelihood elton will perform at least one song possibly two. since paul was on the show on 10-18th i thought this is a fine place to announce elton’s appearance. paul did the song ‘new’ at the very end of the show.
