London 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Dominion Theatre, London, UK; November 24, 2014. Very good FM radio (broadcast on November 29, 2014).

Thanks to MrUnhalf for sharing the show at Dime.

MrUnhalf noted:

Although pre-recorded the BBC still took an interval. During this time they broadcast an item about prog rock, centering largely on Procol Harum’s place in prog. The latter half included an interview with Rick Wakeman. Although there were no full tracks played in the piece there were numerous excerpts from studio albums. It therefore cannot be included here.

Thanks also to tempusfugit (Alex) for the artwork.

Los Angeles 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Chinese New Year Festival. Live at the Chinatown Central Plaza, Los Angeles, CA; February 21, 2015. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Today being the 7th day of the Year of the Sheep and it’s being “Everybody’s Birthday”, here’s a treat from Lili Haydn. (This show took place on the 3rd day of the Lunar New Year.) Lili Haydn was an honorary member of George Clinton’s band. He nicknamed her the “Jimi Hendrix of the violin.”

But Haydn got extremely sick from chemical poisoning in 2009; suffered brain damage and was also forced to get rid of almost all of her belongings. Despite the neurological damage that left her unable to write lyrics, Haydn retained her sense of melody. She credits music for restoring her health.

Programme notes:

Lili Haydn to headline Chinese New Year Festival’s Live Music Stage on Feb. 21; free day of music features Sun Drug, Decorator, Dutch Party, Jessica Fichot, Mount Saint, Hunny and Green Gerry. Lili Haydn, the singer/composer/rock violinist who made a strong comeback from health woes with last year’s album, Lililand, will headline the LA Weekly Live Music Stage at the Chinese New Year Festival on Saturday, Feb 21, in Chinatown.

Haydn will be joined by host of emerging LA artists on a day that will feature the 116th Annual Golden Dragon Parade, an afternoon affair that wends its way through Chinatown on Hill and Broadway streets. The celebration of the Year of the Ram also boasts cultural performances, artisans, a craft beer garden (opposite the music stage), culinary demonstrations, gourmet food trucks, vendors, vintage photo booths and family activities. It’s free and all-ages.

Thanks to taper markp; and to persic for sharing the show at Dime.

persic added: ” Lili had sound issues all night, I doubt there was one vocal or violin run of hers that she ever heard in the monitors.”

Thanks also to markp’s wife for the picture.

San Francisco 1975 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Boarding House, San Francisco, CA; July 7, 1975. Very good Pre-FM.

A must for all Bob Marley fans… and, if you don’t have a version of this show, this one’s it (especially the lossless flacs)!

Thanks to musigny23 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

musigny23 noted:

This has been here several times from versions in general circulation that were some distance from the source. For that reason there was no particular urgency for me to do an upload. But the other day a friend requested a new copy and that focused my attention on this for the first time in years. I realized I could share it in its original 48k, at the correct pitch, and with 15 seconds added at the beginning from a good FM source. Of course, by now thousands have DLed the prior versions and may or may not ever see this and they may also prefer it on CD, requiring resampling (probably worth also circulating). If that matters to you, stay tuned.

A Shinawatra apologist showed his hand early in February in the pages of US magazine Foreign Affairs. By Tony Cartalucci.

Corporate-funded think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, in their magazine Foreign Affairs, recently published an article titled, “Silencing the Shinawatras.” In it, author Matthew Wheeler encapsulates current US policy toward Thailand regarding the recent ousting by military coup of its proxy regime headed by Thaksin Shinawatra and his sister, Yingluck Shinawatra.

Wheeler claims:

At a time when the nation needs compromise, stability, and engagement across the political spectrum, Yingluck’s impeachment appears to many as a settling of scores, and its partisan implications make the prospect of progress look ever further off.

Wheeler argues throughout his piece that Thailand must compromise with the ousted Shinawatra regime or face further instability. He briefly touches on the unprecedented violence that resulted after the removal from power of Thaksin Shinawatra in 2006. He fails to mention the specifics of that violence, or the immense mass murder that took place while Shinawata was in power.

West Hollywood 1976 [ JF Archive Series No. 1, 1CD]
Live at The Troubadour, West Hollywood, CA (9pm Show); June 19, 1976. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to JF who recorded the show; JEMS for the transfer; and to mjk5510 for sharing the show at Dime.

Uploader’s notes:

JEMS loves to present vintage taper series and we’re pleased to inaugurate another one, this time from the archive of our new friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and later resumed taping in Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock…

We kick things off with a fine representation of JF’s work at the Troub, capturing a highly entertaining and previously uncirculated set by Tom Waits. It is an appealing, you-are-there sort of recording that seems to balance the music and the ambiance just right.

The intrigues, the jealousies, the power-plays, the affairs – a life in the theater, by way of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman (2014). If only they had dropped the digital effects, says Critic After Dark Noel Vera. Birdman won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography at the 2015 Oscars.

In an interview I did of the late Filipino filmmaker Mario O’Hara I asked what foreign films he’s seen, and he mentioned Citizen Kane.

“What did you think?”

“It’s so radio!”

He was right, of course. Welles introduced the radio sound to cinema: the aural effects that evoke atmosphere and spatial depth (hushed voices, reverberations), the musical and verbal transitions running into the next scene, accelerating narrative pace.

Had a similar reaction watching Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance): after 10 minutes I wanted to stand up and yell “it’s so theater!”

Cambridge 1974 [no label, 3CD]
Live at The Performance Center, Cambridge, MA; March 31, 1974. Fairly to very good mono audience recording.

Thanks to original uploader shopkin 527 (Steve Hopkins) ; and to Manimal for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Manimal noted:

While this is a mighty fine set on its own (two sets, actually!), I guess that at this point in rock history reconsideration it’s better known as “that time Badfinger ‘closed’ for Big Star’s still-officially-unreleased mighty bitchen March ’74 show in Cambridge”. Which is fine… The thing is this double Badfinger show deserves to be on the tracker again.

Posted at

This is the last (along with the late show) live recordings of classic Badfinger known to exist. They would play one more gig the following Friday in Chicago but Pete Ham would never perform again in America, a country that embraced Badfinger more so than their native lands (Wales and Liverpool, England).

It’s also reported that a March 1974 concert at the Cleveland Agora was recorded on 16-track tape for a possible live album release, even though the performance was deemed unsatisfactory at the time.

New Jersey 1981 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Emerald City Cherry Hill, NJ; August 31, 1981. Very good FM broadcast.

When it comes to girl groups in the late ’70s to early ’80s, there are The Go-Go’s on one side and, on the other, there are The Bangles. Both are ideal, if you like frothy sweet pop. The Go-Go’s also made history as the first and, to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts.

Live at the Café Bohemia, Greenwich Village, New York; 1956-57. Additional tracks from Washington 1953 and New York 1958. Very good radio broadcasts. Public Domain.

Jazz On Sunday is a new, though occasional, series looking at European jazz releases in the public domain (more than 50 years). To kick off, here are some Miles Davis recordings from 1953-58.

As a bonus, an amazing and also never before released tour de force by Miles on A Night in Tunisia taped in Washington in 1953, as well as an all-star 1958 jam session on What Is This Thing Called Love?

In 10 years, the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, in the Philippines, provided a broad base for new directing talents to be funded, produced and promoted. Many new names, from Gutierrez “Teng” Mangansakan, Francis Pasion, Hannah Espia to Arnel Mardoquio, made their mark here and went on to significant careers. Philip Cheah witnessed the festival’s beginning in 2005 and stuck around for their 10th anniversary retrospective in August 2014.

I keep having this recurring dream. I’m walking down the musty carpeted corridors of the antique Cultural Centre of the Philippines (CCP) building when a door is opened for me, and I enter the lounge area behind the circle boxes, where an afternoon buffet is all laid out. Distinguished directors, actresses, film critics and lucky hanger-ons are digging into the tea spread languidly without a care for the grumbling masses outside.

Later, after the film is over, I enter the stream of crowded bodies cascading out from the exit doors. The crush of bodies doesn’t allow me to change course before I’m abruptly deposited outside the CCP…
