New York 1979 [Moonlight Records #197779, 1CD]
Live at Club 57, New York; August 18, 1979. Plus demos. Very good FM.

When you are out trickin’ or treatin’…

Thanks to exene for sharing this at Zomb in 2012.

exene noted:

The live gig sound quality is good but raw, just like you’d expect for a Cramps show. Found this one recently at a local store in Austin. I think it’s a UK bootleg, possibly sourced from a vinyl LP of the same name. After checking a few Cramps discographies, far as I could tell this is not officially released material. One bootleg “Exorcism Night” has an incomplete version of the Club 57 gig.

Home Recordings 1962 [no label, 1CD]
Jack’s home studio in London, UK; circa 1962 (exact dates unknown). Very good audio, a bit of hiss.

Thanks to Hopboy; and to amellowsoul (Tom Shyman) for sharing the tracks at Dime.

amellowsoul noted:

Here is probably the rarest Jack Bruce recording. All thanks goes to Hopboy for sharing this a few years ago! It’s pretty amazing this even still exists, as it even pre-dates the Graham Bond era. If you enjoy this, I also highly recommend the Bruce/Baker/Heckstall-Smith home recordings from the same era. These rehearsals have seldom been heard by anyone other than a small group of diehard Jack Bruce collectors. Taken from Hopboy’s Jack Bruce collection.

The Tube was later played by Jack, Ginger, and Dick at Jacks “50th birthday concert” at the E-Werk in Cologne Germany on November 2 or 3, 1993.

In the last 20 years, film funding has stood itself on its head. This was perhaps inevitable, as very few film studio systems remained active. Thus, it fell on the shoulders of individuals to raise their own funding in every which way they could. Philip Cheah discusses how Korean film schools have changed the funding system and refreshed the studio system.

In the histories of every national cinema, the conflict between private and public enterprise has ensued, causing a see-saw of ambitions swinging between commercial dictates and state enterprise. This can be seen in how early or how late the state’s presence is felt in the industry. For example, it was early in the case of Vietnam in 1953 and late for the Philippines in 1981. This determined the level of control over creative expression. There is always a consequence from whom you take your money from.

Tokyo 2014 [Xavel, 2CD]
Red Tour. Live at the Saitama Arena, Tokyo, Japan; June 1, 2014. Excellent audio (IEM/Audience Matrix).

Just as Taylor Swift ended her Red tour in June 2014, she rolled out her new album, 1989, on October 27, 2014. As British host Graham Norton tells Swift on his show: “Not a twang on it… this is pop, pop, pop. We’re worried for you. It seems like you had to go through such awful things to create your albums… this is an album with no heartbreak, there’s no kind of songs to lovers, it’s very upbeat pop.”

In the meanwhile, for those who want a souvenir of the Red tour, here it is. And while you’re at it, you can also indulge in a spot of fangirling… if you are so inclined.

Here’s a killer from the Philippines… a killer fridge, that is. As Critic After Dark Noel Vera says about Rico Maria Ilarde’s Pridyider (2012), “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing, oversplattering, overwrapping in slimy tentacles.” And that actress Andi Eigenmann can yank his icebox door open anytime.

Let’s settle one thing: this is not Ishmael Bernal’s Pridyider, the master filmmaker’s memorable contribution to Regal’s monstrously successful horror anthology franchise Shake, Rattle ‘n Roll (1984) – thirteen sequels and counting (they seem to propagate like the undead), its 15th incarnation to haunt movie screens this coming Christmas. Bernal’s film was a throwaway, a trifle concocted with veteran screenwriter/bank officer Amado Lacuesta to, y’know, entertain the kiddies, so they came up with the nuttiest premise possible: a killer fridge that swallows its prey whole.

Universe Divided [Progressive Rock Remaster Project PRRP039, 2CD]
Live at the Stadhalle, Offenbach, Germany; May 28, 1979. Very good soundboard.

The May 28, 1979 soundboard of Rush in Offenbach, Germany is one of the most famous and coveted early Rush recordings. There are a few versions of this show available but all suffer from rumors that the sources have been altered and that the recordings do not accurately reflect the show that night…

The most obvious problem with this source was the clear speed error that was present. Fans familiar with Rush would easily recognize that most of the songs run very slow in this recording. An extensive list of reference recordings were compiled and analyzed to produce a composite standard track length for each track of this recording. Comparing these references to the tracks of this recording, a clear pattern of speed error was identified and then corrected.

As a soundboard recording, the noise and hiss found here was a bit too intrusive and so was reduced, particularly during quiet sections of the music. Tonality required extensive adjustment. The original recording had sections of harsh midrange and generally lacked the amount of bass commonly heard in Rush recordings. There were also a few sections with excesses that were corrected as well. Both static and dynamic tonality adjustments were made. Dynamics also needed extensive alteration. In general, Rush music from the 1976-80 era is quite powerful and full of dynamic changes. These changes were accentuated as much as possible to maximize the dramatic character of the music.

As with all recordings, a few imperfections were found. Dropouts, skips and other minor problems were easily identified and corrected. Tracking points were reset and then each disc was balanced and normalized.

Thanks to daveboy6 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Kstyle at Dime added: “The story has always been that Skip Gildersleeve gave this to a friend who traded it out, so the various silvers are supposedly 2nd or maybe 3rd gen off the master cassette. If you’re a Rush fan you need this! it’s as good as they’ll ever get. Which is pretty damn good. Play loud and be baked. The bass pedals will shake your walls.”

Stockholm 2014 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Fasching Jazz Club, Stockholm, Sweden; July 14, 2014. Very good to excellent webcast.

With the tragic passing of Michael Brecker in 2007 at the all-too-young age of 57, it seemed that the flagship group the Brecker Brothers, co-led by the saxophonist with his trumpet-wielding older brother Randy, was also to be a thing of the past.

But some things never die; as it was, during the saxophonist’s lifetime, the horn-led band that defined the term “downtown funk” and an edgy, urban sound that could only have come from New York City seemed to have an unquenchable life clearly fated to continue, even as the brothers separated at various points to pursue other projects.

2012’s The Brecker Bros – The Complete Arista Albums Collection (Legacy,) was a precursor and taste-whetter for The Brecker Brothers Band Reunion (2013), an album that, once again under Randy’s name, revives the spirit of downtown funk with a double-disc helping. – John Kelman (

Cleveland 1989 [Goody-Bomb Pitch-Corrected Edited Remaster, 2CD]
Live at Peabody’s Down Under, Cleveland, OH; December 13, 1989. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to goody for sharing the tracks at Dime.

goody noted: “Unfortunately, this show is NOT complete. Songs are cut. That’s exactly how I received it on a single cassette, so I assume the master tape is also like that.”

blueterra at Dime added: “Peabody’s Down Under was a small club, maybe 400 seats. Located in the booming Flats district. It was standing room only on this night. Ginger Baker’s presence was a surprise – I don’t think he was announced as a guest. I recall that he only played a few numbers, and not the whole show. Jack’s album “A Question Of Time” was featured. He was intense. Being close to the stage I could see that Jack was agitated at some point and directed his famous Scottish temper at the guitarist. Later he toppled his keyboard. Always loved this show. It was my last time seeing Jack. His matchless voice will be sorely missed. Rest easy Jack Bruce. Your music will outlast all of us.”

JACK BRUCE R.I.P. 1943-2014

Jack Bruce, best known as one-third of Cream, died on October 25, 2014 of liver disease at his home in Suffolk. He was 71. In a statement issued by his family on Saturday, his family said: “It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”

Bruce played bass, sang and was the principal songwriter in Cream. The group sold 35 million albums in just over two years and were given the first ever platinum disc for Wheels of Fire Bruce wrote and sang most of the songs, including “I Feel Free” and “Sunshine Of Your Love”. But even leaving aside that group, in which he played with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker, his CV reads like a comprehensive guide to the British blues boom, with spells in Alexis Korner’s Blues Inc, the Graham Bond Organisation, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and Manfred Mann. Bruce’s life had been marked by health and financial troubles. In the late 1970s he struggled with drug addiction, and worked as a session musician to make money. In 2003 he was diagnosed with liver cancer, and that September he underwent a transplant. His body initially rejected the new liver, and Bruce almost died, but he recovered well enough to return to performance in 2004. – The Guardian and BBC
