Oxford 1988 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Oxford Polythechnic, Oxford, UK; October 21, 1988. Very good FM broadcast.

Here is something short, sweet and sultry. Wendy James of Transvision Vamp certainly predates all the new female singers who use sexy images to sell their music. Here they are, promoting their then debut album, Pop Art.

1986 saw the formation of British pop-punk band, Transvision Vamp. Wendy James, then 20, was the lead singer and focal point of the group, and attracted media attention with her sexually charged and rebellious image. The Vamps disbanded in 1991 and, two years later, James released her debut solo album, Now Ain’t the Time for Your Tears. The album saw James maintain the pop/rock sound she had become famous for; with the tracks written in its entirety by Elvis Costello, and several tracks co-written by his then wife Cait O’Riordan. – wikipedia

Thanks to the brand new Torrents-Time browser plug-in, The Pirate Bay has just transformed itself into the world’s largest streaming video portal. The popular torrent site now embeds ‘Stream It!” links next to all video torrents enabling them to be played in a window without users ever having to leave the site. By Andy of TorrentFreak.

In the beginning of February 2016, a new piece of software debuted alongside promises to revolutionize how people use torrents. Covered in an earlier article, Torrents-Time is a browser plug-in for Windows and Mac that allows people to view torrents embedded in a webpage and without need for an external torrent client.

The Torrents-Time team promised that their technology could transform any website into a simple to use streaming portal. Indeed, the first public application was, a browser-based edition of Popcorn Time that for the first time used peer-to-peer transfers rather than resource hungry HTTP.

Demos 1990/Norfolk 1992 [no label, 1CD]
Sons Of Kyuss demos; Palm Springs Area 1990; very good soundboard. Live at The Boathouse, Norfolk, VA; December 18, 1992. Fair audience recording (for fans only).

Kyuss was an American stoner rock band, formed in Palm Desert, California, in 1987 by Josh Homme (guitar), John Garcia (vocals), Brant Bjork (drums) and Chris Cockrell (bass). After releasing an EP under the name Sons of Kyuss in 1990, the band shortened its name to Kyuss and recruited Nick Oliveri. Over the next five years the band released four full-length albums, and one last split EP in 1997 as Kyuss and the newly formed Queens of the Stone Age. This tied up the loose ends of Kyuss and introduced the new band Queens of the Stone Age, which was at one time composed entirely of ex-Kyuss members. – wikipedia

Thanks to bluejane99 for sharing the Sons Of Kyuss demos at Dime.

bluejane99 noted:

Great set from Kyuss in their very early days. Normalized and cleaned up. A few gaps fixed, removed numerous clicks (isolated each one, no usage of de-clicker over entire tracks), levels balanced. Volume drops smoothed out in tracks 3, 4 and 6. There is still tape hiss present, as no noise reduction or compression was used in this remaster. Big thanks to the original uploader for this rare gem. The demo tape was first first circulated from someone close to the band.

DAN HICKS R.I.P. 1941-2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 7 February 2016 at

Dan Hicks, who helped keep the traditions of rock’s roots in country, bluegrass and swing alive with his band the Hot Licks, has died on February 6, 2016. He was 74 and had been battling throat and liver cancer for two years. With a style called “folk jazz,” the Hot Licks, which Hick formed in 1967, recorded their first album, 1969’s Original Recordings, for Epic, but when that proved unsuccessful, they moved to the acclaimed boutique label Blue Thumb Records. The three discs they recorded between 1971 and 1973 – Where’s the Money?, Striking It Rich and Last Train to Hicksville… the home of happy feet – saw them build their audience thanks to their combination of pre-rock sounds, musical virtuosity and, as evidenced by their album titles, off-beat sense of humor. But before they could further build upon Last Train‘s No. 67 chart placement, Hicks broke up the Hot Licks. Hicks is perhaps best known for the songs “I Scare Myself”, “Canned Music” and “How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?” –

Bremen 1979/Montreux 1972 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Aladin, Bremen, Germany; February 1, 1979. Very good radio broadcast. Live at the Jazz Festival, Casino (Pavillon), Montreux, Switzerland; June 23, 1972. Very good FM broadcast.

Feels So Good was such a huge hit for Chuck Mangione that one tends to think of the American flugelhorn player in the same vein as Kenny G. However, before he hit the big time, he played the trumpet in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, a chair previously held by greats such as Clifford Brown, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Dorham, Bill Hardman and Lee Morgan. Still, Mangione’s brand of jazz tends to be a little on the sweet side (diabetics be warned).

rillenheini noted:

Thanks to Lewojazz for the Bremen master file. The Montreux recording generally isn’t balanced very well and it seems that the engineer loved Steve Gadd’s bass drum the most. I have edited out most of the radio speaker’s unnecessary comments but otherwise made no alterations. Thanks to satchmo67 for additional information on this very rare recording.

$ingapore’s nation-builder press are at it again. What with their less than insightful report of why Bangladeshi workers were repatriated (for a start no public trial), here comes support for America’s cold war against China via an opinion piece Dec 17, 2015 on Southeast Asia’s relations with China. We offer an alternative viewpoint from Tony Cartalucci.

The $traits Times published an opinion piece by the London-based Rob Edens. Wishfully titled, “South-east Asia fast becoming unfriendly territory for China,” it attempts to portray Southeast Asia as increasingly pivoting West toward Washington, coincidentally just as Washington was “pivoting” East toward Asia.

Lost on Edens appears to be the fact that physical infrastructure built beyond China’s borders becomes a long-term asset for those who cooperate in its construction, while Western “free trade” is in all reality, submission to foreign economic hegemony. Many aspects of “free trade” agreements are in fact, stripped verbatim from treaties that defined Colonial Europe and its subjugation of Southeast Asia.

DAVID BOWIE – THE LEON SUITES 1994 (R.I.P. 1947-2016)

The Leon Suites 1994 [BOWSTAT018, 1CD]
Demos. Very good soundboard.

Here’s one more for the road…

Paperdragon, Bowie Station:

I talked to one of the musicians who is on this and got a more complete story. First, these aren’t outtakes at all and, second, they weren’t initially intended to be a Bowie album. The idea was to form a sort of supergroup behind Bowie and Eno, and record an album as a one-off project for that group. This is essentially that album. So what we have here is a fully-realized concept album for a group that never came into existence.

It was then presented to the record company, who as we all know rejected it as “uncommercial.” After that, Bowie used parts of it as the basis for an entirely new project, which became 1.Outside. So, had this been released, Outside would have never happened. So, rather than this being outtakes from Outside, it’s actually more true that Outside was based on outtakes from The Leon Suites, an album in its own right.

Thanks to jallaweb (Jan Erik) for sharing the show at Dime.

Thanks also to Learm for the artwork

jallaweb noted:

These demos were recorded and rejected by the record company in 1994. The Leon Suites eventually turned into the 1.Outside album released in 1995. Parts of the three suites have been available on earlier bootleg releases but all of them have been sourced from low bitrate MP3s. This is the first release of the complete Leon Suit in a lossless version. The source of this recording is a CDR provided by Adam Bedstroke (patdrome). A lot of thanks goes out to him for letting these demos be shared amongst fans.

MAURICE WHITE R.I.P. 1941-2016

Rotterdam 1988 [no label, 2CD]
Live at The Ahoy, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; November 2, 1988. Very good soundboard/FM (?)

Maurice White, the co-founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, has died in his sleep in Los Angeles on February 3, 2016 at the age of 74. White served as the band’s main songwriter and record producer, and was co-lead singer (along with Philip Bailey). White won seven Grammys, and was nominated for 21 Grammys in total. The group’s hits included September, Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star and After The Love Has Gone. White was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in the late 1980s (some put it at 1992), which led him to eventually stop touring with Earth, Wind & Fire in 1994. However, White retained executive control of the band, and remained active in the music business.
