New York 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Society for Ethical Culture, New York, NY; Ocotober 9, 2015. Fairly good audience recording.

Original linuep performs Odessey And Oracle. The performance was memorable, as many who were there had posted on the net. This one’s for the fans and wished the sound was even better. It’s still fairly good though.

Thanks to Filutek who recorded and shared the show and artwork at Dime.

Filutek noted:

How do I even begin to describe how great this show was? So great that the moment I got home I bought tickets to Tuesday’s show in Connecticut. This show was performed on the release date of the new Zombies album “Still Got That Hunger.” Go out and buy it!!! (Yeah, right, like there’s a record store near you anymore. I guess you’ll have to order it online.)

In F Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton (2015), there is the usual protagonist (Eazy E here) against Mephisto (Ruthless Records co-founder Jerry Heller). The introduction and rise of the star/s is involving and the middle portion (cementing the reputation) is viscerally intellectual. But the biopic seems awfully silent on the group and hip-hop’s misogyny, says Critic After Dark Noel Vera.

F Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton starts out strong, with Eazy E (Jason Mitchell) attempting a transaction in a horrorshow crackhouse complete with shotgun-wielding gang moll and a police tank (captured by helicopter-mounted camera flying overhead in a tremendous WTF moment) literally crashing the party.

It later settles down to the familiar rhythms of the standard-issue musical artist biopic, introducing the rest of the group (Corey Hawkins as Dr Dre; O’Shea Jackson Jr (looking remarkably like his father) as Ice Cube; Neil Brown Jr and Aldis Hodge in supporting roles as DJ Yella and MC Ren respectively) and chronicling the moment when they cut their first significant single, “Boyz N’ Tha Hood.”

San Francisco 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Banjo Stage, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA; October 3, 2015. Very good audio – ripped from HD webcast.

While the set might have been billed as “Gillian Welch”, this is not a solo performance. It’s Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. And it is a very nice acoustic set featuring mostly Gillian Welch tracks.

On September 18, 2015, Welch and David Rawlings released Nashville Obsolete, their second album under the band title Dave Rawlings Machine.

Frankfurt 2014 [no label, 1CD]
The Road To Jajouka, 45 Deutsches Jazzfestival, Hr Sendesaal, Frankfurt, Germany; October 25, 2014. Excellent satellite radio.

The story of the Master Musicians of Jajouka is one of the most intriguing stories in music, and also quite possibly the longest-running one. This exotic music originating from a small village in the Rif mountains of Morocco is a tradition that has been literally been handed down from generation to generation for some 1,300 years. The music has entranced Westerners who have come across this remote berg in northern Morocco, from William S Burroughs to Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones to Ornette Coleman.

In 2013, Billy Martin – of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame – took his turn honoring on record the world’s oldest continuing musical troupe. Bachir Attar has led the Master Musicians since 1981 and Martin had befriended him and immersed himself with Attar’s music. The result was The Road To Jajouka, A Benefit Album.

Festival Meteo 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Festival Meteo, Mulhouse, France; August 28, 2015 (broadcast on September 26, 2015). Excellent HD broadcast.

Programme notes:

A meeting of two legends of improvised music and “free” jazz: British guitarist Fred Frith, for whom every concert is an event and whom we are honoured to have with us leading a practical workshop at Mulhouse this week, and Danish saxophonist Lotte Anker, co-founder of the Copenhagen Art Ensemble and composer working on the fringes of jazz, free improvisation and contemporary music, for whom, astonishingly, this will be the first visit to Mulhouse! A particularly current duo, given that their first album has just been released by the Swiss label Intakt Records.

In July 2015, the Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report alleged that Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak had diverted RM2.6 billion (US$700 million) in 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) funds into his own accounts. Later, a Najib crony alleged that the funds came from a Middle East donor. There has been no official account as to what has happened to the money. Anil Netto looks at a possible endgame for the Malaysian prime minister.

On 9 May 2015, I raised the question, “How long can Najib last?”

[On October 6, 2015], the Conference of Malaysian Rulers issued a rare statement saying they want the government to complete the investigation into 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) as soon as possible and take “the appropriate stern action” against those implicated. This is hugely significant. [Ed: The Conference of Malaysian rulers, comprising the nine rulers of the Malay states, and the governors or Yang di-Pertua Negeri of the other four states, generally meets three times a year.]

New York 1976 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Bottom Line, New York, NY; April 3, 1976. Very good FM broadcast. Some hiss/tape noise.

Thanks to kingrue for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

kingrue noted:

Eric Carmen is known for being a member of The Raspberries. Played their first show on October 16, 1970 doing weekly gigs at the Agora in Cleveland. A career highlight was the band’s sold-out concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall on September 26, 1973. Eric performed three consecutive nights at the Bottom Line. This WNEW broadcast is from the second night. The opening act was Ron Douglas.

Thanks to BR for his tapes and enjoy the show.

Century City 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Sound in Focus, live at Century Park, Century City, CA; August 8, 2015. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Grammy award-winning songwriter Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million records. He’s kept his sound fresh by embracing a wider range of sounds on recent recordings, including his latest and 14th studio album, “Second Hand Heart,” which was released in August, 2015.

Drew Millard,

At first blush, pairing country icon Dwight Yoakam on a bill with seminal punk rock outfit X might seem like an odd fit or a risky booking stunt; however, this KCRW-curated free concert hits the sweet spot between the hard-core club and the honky-tonk. Both Yoakam and X’s songwriting duo of John Doe and Exene Cervenka traffic in lyrics that border on poetry, and each outfit has reached across the aisle to the other’s chosen genre. X’s 1982 Under the Big Black Sun skewed cowpunk (not to mention Doe and Cervenka’s solo works, which have been more country than not), and a pre-fame Yoakam shared stages with bands including Los Lobos, Hüsker Dü and, well, X.

Chicago 1973 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the International Amphitheatre, Chicago, Illinois; March 7, 1973. Fairly to very good audience recording.

In June 2015, a first-generation tape of this show surfaced. It is likely that Sigma has used this version of the show for their Pink Floyd – Chicago 1973 (Sigma 132) release.


[This show] has circulated for some time and was the subject of a previous silver release, Illusions Of Childhood’s End (Highland HL 219/220) but curiously the bootleggers have not shown this recording much love as it gets overlooked by the better sounding recordings from New York City, Boston, and Toronto. Recently a 1st Generation source began circulating and there was reason to celebrate as the lower generation and improved tape transfer would make for a much more satisfying listening experience, in fact one could now put this recording alongside the other three as being one of the best from the early ’73 tour.

+ + + + +

Thanks to Roscoe59; and to neonknight for sharing the show at Yeeshkul.

neonknight noted:

A raw transfer of Roscoe59’s cassettes except for a +3.05% speed correction, which I applied after advice from goldenband. This recording is often overlooked but is in fact one of the best sounding 1973 shows and, of course, it includes a rather nice version of Childhood’s End. The taper stopped his machine between songs making it easy for me to divide the music up into the individual tracks.
