Bulgaria 2013 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Piano Extravaganza Festival, Sofia, Bulgaria; September 29, 2013. Excellent stereo audio, extracted from HDTV broadcast.

Not so much a symphonic Pink Floyd but Pink Floyd on the piano.


Turkish pianist AyseDeniz Gokcin has become an unlikely sensation after her recording of legendary prog rock band Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ was picked up by various online media across Europe, turning her rendition into a surprise hit. She told Intropia: “I was inspired by Liszt’s legacy, his showmanship as a touring pianist – he was one of the first to play to audiences as big as 3,000 people at a time. And I love Pink Floyd’s music.”

In October 2013, Gokcin had posted this Sofia concert on YouTube. Recorded at the Piano Extravaganza Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria, it’s a 63-minute epic that tours the prog band’s history from tracks from 1975’s Wish You Were Here album to ‘On The Turning Away’, taken from their 1987 album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason. Gokcin uses ‘On The Turning Away’ as a basis for what she has termed a ‘Chopin Mashup’, which takes elements of the great Polish piano composer and fuses them with the Pink Floyd original. The concert comes ahead of a whole album of Pink Floyd reinterpretations, which was released in November 2013.

Thanks to stfine for sharing the HDTV broadcast on the net. One also wonders if this rip came from the YouTube clip as the highs tend to “bleed” slightly.

Stockholm 1971/Duesseldorf 1970 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Koncerthuset, Stockholm, Sweden; November 24, 1971. Very good Pre-FM. Live at Eisstadion “Joint Meeting”, Duesseldorf, Germany; May 16, 1970. Good to fairly good audience recording.

Starting from 1962 and after going various lineup changes over the years, the British Status Quo must be one of the longest-surviving bands around. Call it power pop or their brand of boogie-woogie, here are two shows from the early ’70s.

Thanks to cacahuete for sharing the Stockholm 1971 show and the artwork (modified here) at Dime.

cacahuete noted:

This recording is one of the best early live Status Quo recordings, both quality and performance. The show was specially recorded for broadcast on Swedish Radio, a recording from the radio, usually in MP3, with DJ introduction at the beginning is quite common. This is not from the radio but taken from the Pre-FM Soundboard, radio station master reels. An official CD release of this was going to be released back in the 1990s but was cancelled by the band, they were not happy with the performance. I got as far as ordering a copy of this CD from a mail order company, only for a letter to drop through my door just after the release date stating “The Release Of This CD Has been Cancelled – It Is Highly Unlikely It will Be Released Any Time In The future.” Disappointment or what. Years later I found the MP3 then recently I found this, the real thing. I’ve made some artwork to go with this torrent as the only artwork I could find for this date was crap. This is vintage Quo at its best, even if the band themselves did not like it.

Thanks to kneesfudd for sharing the 1970 Duesseldorf show at Dime.

kneesfudd noted:

Slightly distant but fairly clear and steady with very little AUD noise. Warts: Sounds almost like #1 flips into stereo a few times, not sure why. Twas a bit o’ mike feedback on stage off and on ‘tween songs. Surely missed some dropouts and dullspots but fixed most of ‘em and fixed volume cuts and fluctuations, so it’s pretty damn steady. The band has a bit of mike feedback on stage off and on inbetween songs.

Minneapolis 1973 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Metro Sports Arena, Minneapolis, MN; May 30, 1973. Very good soundboard.

Here’s a curtain raiser for Halloween.

Thanks to mjk5510 for sharing the tracks in 2006.

mjk5510 noted:

Here we have a vintage Alice show from when they were the kings of the rock world. A number of shows from the ’73 tour appear to have been soundboard recorded with Dallas and Houston being the most commonly known appearing in edited form on the Billion Dollar Babies Deluxe Edition.

Recorded one month later, the Minneapolis show seems a bit looser than those two but contains the same high level of energy and fun throughout.

Chicago 1987 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Pavillion UIC, Chicago, IL; March 24, 1987. Very good to excellent FM broadcast. Paris Theatre; London, UK; 1979. Seattle Center Arena, Seattle, WA; February 22, 1984 – very good audience recording.

In the light of Chrissie Hynde’s debut solo album, Stockholm, which was released in June 2014, here are some Pretenders between 1979 and 1987, especially for those who enjoy the group’s Learning To Crawl album.

Thanks to devilwilly for sharing the Chicago/London tracks at Dime.

devilwilly noted:

This one is the TRUE complete concert which was broadcast in this form as far as I know only once on NDR 2 (Germany) in two parts in 1988. The whole concert is about 100 minutes and absolutely fantastic. The filler is the approximately a 30-minute BBC concert at the Paris Theatre, London from 1979, taken from the ORIGINAL (not the bootleg!) BBC Transcription LP.

Throughout history, those who have copied the most have also always been the most prosperous, and for that reason. Bans on copying, like the copyright and patent monopolies, are just plain industrial protectionism. By Rick Falkvinge.

It often helps to understand present time by looking at history, and seeing how history keeps repeating itself over and over. In the late 1700s, the United Kingdom was the empire that established laws on the globe. The United States was still largely a colony – even if not formally so, it was referred to as such in the civilized world, meaning France and the United Kingdom. The UK had a strictly protectionist view of trade: all raw materials must come to England, and all luxury goods must be made from those materials while in the UK, to be exported to the rest of the world. Long story short, the UK was where the value was to be created.

Laws were written to lock in this effect. Bringing the ability to refine materials somewhere else, the mere knowledge, was illegal. “Illegal copying”, more precisely.

SWR3 New Pop Festival 2014 [no label, 1CD]
Live in Baden Baden, Germany; September 11, 2014. Excellent audio, extracted from EinsPlus HD broadcast.

London Grammar are a relatively new British electronic pop trio formed by Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dominic ‘Dot’ Major; and they have been getting quite a buzz. They released their debut album, If You Wait, in September 2013.

London Grammar’s music has been described as “a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds” with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals, plaintive lyrics and in the case of the track “Hey Now”, very heavy sub-bass. – wikipedia

Think trip-hop, or what trip-hop did next: chillout – given a bit of 2013 spit and polish. – The Guardian

Lee Kung-lok’s 3D Naked Ambition (2014) is a look on the lighter side of the Japanese adult video industry but with Chapman To and his unlikely comments on the stuff of Hongkongers, the film has become much more relevant in spite of itself. Stephen Tan reviews.

While thousands of Hongkongers took to the streets to take part in the Occupy Central movement (click here), many at home ended up watching TVB series, Line Walker, trying to figure out the undercover agents in the policier. Perhaps the more pertinent and certainly the more resonant film is Lee Kung-lok’s 3D Naked Ambition (2014). In the face of actual police brutality, Naked Ambition star, Chapman To, posted on Facebook: “When Chapman To, the one who offends everyone, speaks up, (it can be) a small thing. But now, Chow Yun Fat, the one whom everyone wants to take a picture with, says you are doing something. Even Tony Leung, the one who doesn’t speak a lot, has spoken. You are in big trouble.”

Featuring David Crosby
Back To The Nest [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Rockefellers, Houston, TX; August 21, 1988 (early show). Very good soundboard.

David Crosby was arrested and jailed on drug and weapons charges in Texas in May 1982. Crosby was sentenced to two terms, but the conviction was overturned; arrested several more times, he finally turned himself in to the authorities in December 1985. He would spend eight months in prison. Based on a promise he made to Crosby should he clean himself up, Neil Young  rejoined CSN in the studio upon Crosby’s release from prison for American Dream in 1988. – Wikipedia

Crawley 1993 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Outside-In, Hawth Centre, Crawley, UK; September 1993. Excellent FM broadcast.

While the music is not considered ear-shattering, it is also not for the faint-hearted.

Thanks to PsyKies for sharing the tracks at Dime.

PsyKies noted:

Recorded by me off air direct from the original broadcast in 1993 to a Panasonic Hi-Fi VHS video recorder in SP audio only mode. Sometime in the mid to late 1990s I misguidedly transferred all my radio recordings to VHS LP audio mode. This combined with the age of the tapes has resulted in some evident distortion throughout. Transferred to CD-R in the late 1990s and converted to FLAC in September 2009.
