Nashville 2016 [no label, 1CD]

Americana Fest. Live at the Mercy Lounge, Nashville, Tennessee; September 21, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

Just the idea of Dwight Yoakam making a bluegrass album is like some sort of gift from the country music Gods. Before a lick of music was heard, the news of “Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…” was its own viral event… If you come to this record expecting some groundbreaking bluegrass project, especially if you weren’t in the loop that this is a covers record, you’re probably going to be disappointed. But if you look at it as Dwight trying to keep things spicy and interesting, and releasing a side project of cool bluegrass versions of some of his previously-released material, you’ll have a good time, enjoy the listen, see a different side of Dwight, and satiate your desire to hear what he’d be like in the bluegrass realm. –

indykid noted:

On ‘Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…’, Dwight Yoakam has re-imagined some of his most well-known songs – 11 in total – as bluegrass tunes. The album, out on September 23, also includes a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain” as the closing track. He and his new band, The Aqua Velva Boys, visited Nashville’s Mercy Lounge for a special Americana Fest performance of the new album in full.

Berlin 1969 [TomP remaster, 1CD]

Berliner Jazztage. Live at the Berliner Philharmonie, Berlin, Germany; November 6, 1969. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to the original uploader; and to tom_phillips (TomP) for sharing the show at Dime.

TomP noted:

I originally thought this was a higher quality version of the set on Nov 11 labelled from Stuttgart, but while they start identically, the bulk of the set is completely different and the best quality I’ve ever heard from such an age.  It is nearly, but not quite mono and benefitted from a few simple changes, so I hope folks like it.

Dakar 1966 [no label, 1CD]

Festival Mondial des Arts Nègres. Live at the Théâtre National Daniel Sorano, Dakar, Senegal; April 9, 1966. Very good FM broadcast.

David Murphy, Remembering the First World Festival of Negro Arts, Dakar 1966:

The First World Festival of Negro Arts, which ran from 1-24 April 1966, was organised against the backdrop of African decolonisation and the push for civil rights in the US. More than 2,500 artists, musicians, performers and writers gathered in Dakar, and the festival spanned literature, theatre, music, dance, film, as well as the visual/plastic arts. It was hailed by many commentators as the inaugural cultural gathering of the black world… US participants were thus amongst the most eagerly anticipated guests in Dakar: Duke Ellington, the legendary jazz man; Langston Hughes, the elder statesman of African-American literature; and an ageing Josephine Baker, the ‘black Venus’ from Missouri, who had wowed Paris in the 1920s.

The USA has again approved granting Israel, and this time with a record $38 BILLION in military aid over the next 10 years. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ‘delighted’ for the handout. What can a small sailboat with 13 women, including a Malaysian gynecologist, possibly do to a juggernaut? By LisaGay Hamilton.

Sunday night, September 18, 2016. As my “industry” colleagues attend Emmy parties and dress for the red carpet, I stand on the chilly docks of Ajaccio, Corsica, in the wee hours of the morning awaiting the arrival of a small sailboat called the Zaytouna-Oliva. The boat arrives just after 2 am, and the passengers and crew, all women, disembark.

The trip from Barcelona was rough. Everyone had gotten sick and it showed on their faces. One woman had become so ill she had to be taken by ambulance to the local hospital. The boat is battered and reeks of vomit, but it does not smell of despair. The women walk quietly and defiantly off the gangplank and toward the pier, where they receive a hero’s welcome. In 24 hours, I will join the women on the third leg of the trip to Messina, Sicily, and from there the Zaytouna-Oliva will proceed to its final destination: Gaza.

Another Time, Another Place
Disc 4: Hawaii [Stormbird, 1CD]

Live at the International Center Arena, Honolulu, Hawaii; July 28, 1966. Very good soundboard (taped by the radio station; recorded in-line).

Rolling Stones collectors would probably already have copies or versions of these discs. Recently, Stormbird released a compilation of the Brian Jones-era Rolling Stones tracks/shows, a time when the Stones still mattered. We will be sharing these discs over the coming weeks.

Promo and sleeve notes:

Unique six disc anthology is the rare opportunity to enjoy classic recordings by the Rolling Stones from the Brian Jones era. Included here are digitally remastered versions of live television shows, radio broadcasts, concert appearances and studio outtakes.

The Rolling Stones appeared in concert in Honolulu, Hawaii on July 28, 1966. The concert was broadcast live by radio station K-POI.

BBC In Concert 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the BBC (Regent Street), London, UK: 1975. Very good audio from Pre-FM Transcription Disc.

The Baker Gurvitz Army came into existence when former Gun and Three man Army members Paul and Adrian Gurvitz joined forces with legendary drummer Ginger Baker in 1974. The Baker Gurvitz Army was the first real musical project for Ginger Baker since the short-lived band Salt in 1972 and Ginger Baker’s Airforce some two years prior to that.

Thanks to GRC for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

GRC noted:

A fresh 2016 rip from the transcription disc. There’s been a bootleg silver in the past, but unfortunately that version immortalised/preserved a vinyl ‘skip’ on one of the tracks, and many taped copies from this silver repeated the error. We now have a skip-free version.

Unfortunately, the transcription disc excludes Baker’s drum solo feature number, Memory Lane, and I’ve included a standard-res version of this from my original off-air broadcast tape. People was played as an encore, and was faded out in the original broadcast. The full version was included on the transcription disc, and included here.

London 1968 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Paris Theatre, London, UK; Spring 1968. Very good soundboard; slight hiss/noise.

Thanks to prof_stoned for the mastering; and for sharing the show at Dime.

prof_stoned noted:

A very important bootleg, IMO, that begs for an official release. Reportedly, it was sourced from a cassette copy that a fan got directly from an BBC employee after writing a letter to inquire after the status of this recording. The BBC employee also mentioned that this came from his private copy and that video sources no longer existed in the archives…

Despite the obvious deterioration of the source material, the sound quality here has still turned out quite good. I have carefully restored and remastered this at my mastering studio. The original source sounded a bit dull. By bringing up the high-end a bit, the NR problem and hiss also became more apparent, but I think I found an acceptable balance (to my taste, anyway). I also corrected the speed of the two original parts (one ran a bit too fast, the other a bit too slow).

Amherst 1978 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA; October 23, 1978. Fairly to very good soundboard.

While true-blue Jersey Boys will have their own say about the group, for the rest of us, it all adds up to a bit of boogie, a bit of rock ‘n’ roll and a whole lot of soul.

It’s Going To Be A Bit Loud [Godfather Records GR 547, 1CD]

Live at the Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden; January 9, 1969 (second show). Very good soundboard.

Stuart, (2010):

This release from the Godfather features a rare show from Jimi Hendrix & the Experience. Released originally on Disc 2 of Swingin’ Pig’s “On The Killing Floor” its broadcast on Swedish radio ensures its status as one of the few Hendrix bootlegs worth its salt – the ambience is close to most of the BBC sessions that have been officially released and are in near pin drop quality although while the Beeb never usually had an audience then the audience are loud and clear here though they never distract from the entertainment.
