QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE – SAN FRANCISCO 1970

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 30 August 2016 at

QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE
San Francisco 1970 [no label, 1CD]
Family Dog at the Beach, San Francisco, CA; August 1, 1970, new source from reel to reel. Very good audience recording. Slight hiss.

Thanks to original uploader 38f; and to amellowsoul for keeping the show alive at Dime.

38f note in 2006:

OK, two words about this fantastic show. This is one of the best QMS audience recordings in circulation, it sounds often like a soundboard… I finally located my 1st generation reel to reel of this show, and it sounds slightly better than the copies in circulation, and finally it has not all the drops and glitches in Who Do You Love, often noticed on other tapes of this show… The version of Who do you love is one of the best ever heard, 35 minutes long!

Tom S noted:

I wish I could share more QMS. A big favorite band, from ’66 – ’70. Gary Duncan issued a bunch of shows, making them now official releases. In truth, all he did was download my, 38f and Davmar torrents, slap them on cheap CDs, with no liner notes or information. He also mixed them to turn down John Cipollina’s guitar, while turning his up. Didn’t pay anyone else, or their estates, any money he makes off of them. While he has a total right to do so, I just wished it was done right, instead of the very shady way, and very bitter emails to me about way [sic] he went about it. I have, and always will have, the shows before his releases, due to his mixings. However, those can’t be shared on Dime anymore.

All credit and thanks goes to 38f for sharing this. His version of this show easily sounded the best of all other versions that went around.

WILCO – MINNEAPOLIS, MN 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Monday 29 August 2016 at

WILCO
Hall’s Island, MN 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Hall’s Island, Minneapolis, MN; August 20, 2016. Very good FM broadcast.

Wilco is a Chicago sextet formed by singer-songwriter and guitarist Jeff Tweedy in the mid-1990s. The band’s current lineup solidified in 2004 when guitarist Nels Cline and guitarist/keyboardist Patrick Sansone joined Tweedy, founding bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glenn Kotche and keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen. Wilco’s brand of classic roots rock incorporates folk, pop and genre-spanning experimentalism. Wilco’s most recent album, Star Wars, was released July 16, 2015.

citypages.com:

It started with Star Wars and ended with an intimate show under the stars.

Wilco dazzled thousands of fans at Hall’s Island on Saturday night in northeast Minneapolis, showcasing their stylistic diversity and robust catalog that spans two decades. Some of the set was predictable, while other songs and arrangements can’t be found on the internet. Those in attendance got their money’s worth and then some…

The summer air was cool as Wilco tore into songs from their latest, including “The Joke Explained,” “Random Name Generator,” and “More.” From there, they launched into a greatest-hits onslaught with “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart.” Frontman Jeff Tweedy sang about the Bible black pre-dawn just before the sun set – a daily event Tweedy claims he writes Yelp reviews for. He considered ours solid, if not unspectacular, though mentioned that playing the Twin Cities always feels like a hometown gig.

BBC PROMS 49
A Tribute To Quincy Jones [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; August 22, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

BBC Prom from the Royal Albert Hall which celebrates the career of composer, arranger, producer, conductor and all-round musical genius Quincy Jones.

Jules Buckley and his Metropole Orkest lead the festivities on stage, celebrating Quincy’s compositions, arrangements and productions from a career that has lasted over half a century.

Bringing the proceedings up to date is a line-up of inventive and prodigious multi-instrumentalists including R&B vocalist Laura Mvula; Quincy’s protégés Jacob Collier, Cuban pianist, composer and Grammy nominee Alfredo Rodríguez, and Cameroonian bassist, composer and vocalist Richard Bona – all showcasing brand new compositions and musical tributes to one of the most influential jazz artists of the 20th century.

JAZZ ON SUNDAY: DEREK BAILEY, JOHN ZORN – TOKYO 1987

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 28 August 2016 at

DEREK BAILEY, JOHN ZORN, SABU TOYOZUMI
Tokyo 1987 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Café Romantische, Tokyo, Japan; November 21, 1987. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to firusan for sharing the show at Dime.

firusan noted:

Given that John Zorn lived in Tokyo for a number of years, it’s surprising that there aren’t many recordings from that period, as I assume he must have been playing frequently. This is the only one that I have ever found that I got in a great trade a while back (Thanks Mike!). It’s a nice sounding trio set with Zorn, Derek Bailey and Japanese drummer Sabu Toyozumi. I always find Sabu really shines in these kind of small group improv settings and Derek and John sound… like Derek and John. The recording is pretty good, though a bit harsh on the high end.

THE SAGA OF THE CORPSE OF FERDINAND MARCOS

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 28 August 2016 at

The final word on Ferdinand Marcos’ corpse has yet to be said. A continuing story… For now, here’s something for your amusement. By Christopher Brauchli.

We interrupt [US] election news just long enough to bring you breaking news of Ferdinand Marcos, deceased. As corpses’ sojourns go, his has been one of the most enduring, due in large part to the devoted attention of his wife, Imelda. To long-time readers of this column, apologies are in order since some of what is described today was reported 10 years ago in this very space.

Ferdinand moved to Hawaii in 1986, having been overthrown as president of the Philippines in a People Power Revolution. His move was assisted by President Ronald Reagan who arranged for the United States Air Force to provide two US Air Force C-141s to carry the Marcos family, its retainers and belongings to Hawaii. Sadly, Mr Marcos’s sojourn there was cut short by his death on September 28, 1989. His death marked the end of one adventure but the beginning of another, an adventure that will end on September 18, 2016, when he will come to rest in the Heroes Cemetery in Manila.

THE BABYS – CLEVELAND 1980

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 27 August 2016 at

THE BABYS
Cleveland 1980 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Agora Ballroom, Cleveland, OH; January 28, 1980. Very good soundboard/FM.

The Babys is a British rock group best known for their songs “Isn’t It Time” and “Every Time I Think of You”. The group signed a contract that was the highest ever for a new music act at the time. Two studio albums, The Babys and Broken Heart, went without incident and were well received. However, when recording Head First in August 1978, Michael Corby was replaced by Jonathan Cain as keyboardist and Ricky Phillips took over as bassist. From 1979 until the breakup in 1981, The Babys’ lineup consisted of vocalist John Waite, drummer Tony Brock, bassist Phillips, guitarist Wally Stocker, and keyboardist Cain.

In a 1979 Hit Parader magazine interview, Waite stated,

“The name was meant to be a joke. We took the name simply because the record companies wouldn’t listen to any bands they thought were rock & roll. I mean, they wanted sure-fire teen bands, pre-teen bands. We couldn’t get anybody down to hear us to get a record deal, so we called ourselves The Babys. We thought we’d keep the name just for two weeks. Then, the word got around in London that there was a band playing rock & roll called The Babys and it seemed so off the wall, so completely crazy, that it was worth taking a shot with. It really appealed to everyone’s sense of humor.”

John Waite went on to produce a major solo hit, “Missing You”, in 1984. Stocker and Brock worked with Rod Stewart and other mainstream artists including Elton John and Air Supply. Cain left to join Journey. Waite, Cain and Phillips joined Bad English in the late 1980s.

During a performance in Cincinnati on 9 December 1980 (the day after John Lennon had been murdered), John Waite was pulled from the stage by an overzealous fan during an encore and seriously injured his knee. Following a subsequent final performance by the group in Akron, Ohio, the remainder of the tour was cancelled, and the group disbanded following the tour. Although different members of the group have given various reasons for the band’s demise, the general issue seems to have been disillusionment that the group never really achieved the success they felt they deserved given the quality of their albums and live shows. Waite later mused, “We were better than people thought we were.” – wikipedia

PUBLIC IMAGE LTD – PARIS 1978

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 26 August 2016 at

PUBLIC IMAGE LTD
Paris 1978 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Le Stadium, Paris, France; December 22, 1978 (second ever gig). Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to slimtimslide for sharing the show at Dime.

slimtimslide noted:

Audience recording of Public Image’s second ever gig – the first one, in Belgium, had been a disaster, attended by French activists intent on creating mayhem, some of whom also attended this gig to try and prevent the band from playing Belsen Was A Gas; they failed.

The band sound suprisingly good, given that both gigs were essentially low-key public rehearsals for their UK debut over Xmas at the Rainbow Theatre, London.

This recording is taken directly from the bootleg cassette that circulated in Paris immediately after the gig. As such it is longer, and better quality, than the bootleg album ‘Recorded In Paris When No One Was Looking’ which omits the encore and places ‘Religion’ in the wrong place.

DAKHABRAKHA – GLASTONBURY 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 26 August 2016 at

DAKHABRAKHA
Glastonbury 2016 [no label, 1CD]
Glastonbury Festival, West Holts Stage, Pilton, UK; June 24, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

The Ukrainian ‘ethnic chaos’ band deliver a playful mix of folk-punk. In 2014, DakhaBrakha were proclaimed by Rolling Stone magazine as “Best Breakout” of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival held in Manchester, TN.

Jon Pareles, New York Times 2014:

Nina Garenetska makes an unlikely rapper… in the Ukrainian band DakhaBrakha, she was wearing a white lace wedding dress, a tall black lamb-fur hat and half a dozen beaded necklaces. Ms. Garenetska was also holding her cello, painted with bright geometric designs.

And while Marko Halanevych played mournful accordion chords, Olena Tsibulska tapped a slow beat on a tom-tom and Iryna Kovalenko switched between twanging a jaw-harp and playing piano, Ms. Garenetska was bowing long tones on her cello and rapping verse after verse. But the lyrics weren’t urban: they were from a traditional Carpathian mountain song about a prospective bride’s less-than-stellar suitors.

That mesh of ancient and contemporary is DakhaBrakha’s mission. DakhaBrakha – which means give-take in old Ukrainian – has researched rural folk songs across Ukraine, then reshaped them: first as the house band for a theater company in Kiev, and now on the international circuit.

The songs are often from ritual occasions, like weddings and funerals. DakhaBrakha revels in the potent, sometimes pungent chordal singing and counterpoint that overlaps Eastern Europe and the Balkans; the three women’s voices, solo or merged, are at the core of the music. But the old songs are recast and kicked into gear by nontraditional rhythms and strategies.
