Word has it Sam Mendes’s Spectre (2015) doesn’t live up to the promise of the previous, better-regarded installment; that in fact this is the worst Bond movie in 30 years. Word-of-mouth like that will make you walk into a theater with head held low, in case the sheer awfulness onscreen catches you full in the face. Well, paddle my butt cheeks with a brass carpet cleaner – tain’t bad at all, says Critic After Dark Noel Vera.

Is the picture long involved and slow at times? Is it complex, requiring a fanboy’s fanatically detailed knowledge of the Bond mythos? Is it overindulgently dark, to the point of killing not just innocent and not-so-innocent bystanders but the audience’s willingness to sit still?

Yes, yes, and yes – but that’s exactly what’s so endearing about it.

Allen Toussaint Tribute 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Orpheum Theater, New Orleans, LA; November 20, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Keith Spera,

The songs of Allen Toussaint washed over their creator one final time on Friday (November 20). As Toussaint, the beloved New Orleans songwriter, producer and pianist, lay inside an opulent casket at the foot of the Orpheum Theater stage, a procession of invited guests, including Elvis Costello, Jimmy Buffett, Dr John and Boz Scaggs, sang or spoke in tribute to him. The two-hour memorial played out to a capacity crowd of 1,600 – some family, some friends, and many fans of Toussaint’s music. The 77-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee died of heart attack on November 10 following a November 9 performance in Madrid, Spain. Saturday’s burial will be private, and Friday’s program, like its honoree, was elegant, restrained and finely tuned.

Pretty nice tribute to Allen Toussaint yesterday featuring a bunch of guests… A few annoying dropouts and way too many interruptions by the DJs, but still worth a listen or two.
FYI Track 6 was from a CD, so I had to trim it to only a few seconds…
About 1:42 of DJ talking removed between Tracks 23 and 24.
There are a handful of dropouts (Tracks 14, 18, 26) of about 10 seconds that were inherent in the broadcast.

Ann Arbor 1980 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Michigan Theater, Ann Arbor, MI; January 22, 1980. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to JEMS; original uploader weedwacker67; and to arpo67 for keeping the show alive at Dime.

arpo67 noted:

XTC is probably the best kept secret when it comes to pop rock being a band that should have had greater commercial successes than they had. This is one of those bands a lot of people have heard of but not actually heard outside the fans and music critics. This show captures XTC touring in support of the Drums And Wire album as an opening act for The Police.

In this one-off BBC Music exclusive [broadcast to coincide with the release of Adele’s third album, 25, on November 20], Adele performs some of her world-famous classic tracks, as well as eagerly awaited new material, accompanied by her band in front of a live studio audience. Host Graham Norton [in itself already is a hoot] also talks to Adele about her career and extraordinary life to date. There’s also some fun to be had as Adele gets up close and personal with some of her biggest fans. The show includes Adele’s first television performance of “Skyfall” since the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013, where she won Best Original Song for the theme music to the 23rd James Bond film.

Koeln/Warsaw 1976 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Klaus-von-Bismarck-Saal des Koelner Funkhauses, Koeln, Germany; September 16, 1976. Track 2: Club Stodola, Warsaw Jazz Jamboree Festival, Poland; September 15, 1976. Very good digital broadcast.

Stan Kenton (1911-1979) was a salient figure on the American musical scene and made an indelible mark on the arranged type of big band jazz. Kenton’s music evolved with the times throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and although he was no longer considered a contemporary innovator, he promoted jazz and jazz improvisation through his service as an educator. The “Kenton Style” continues to permeate big bands at the high school and collegiate level, and the framework he designed for the “jazz clinic” is still widely in use today. – wikipedia

The blame game over the November 2015 Paris Attacks has begun. But is there any mystery why “US officials” and the military-intelligence regime are desperate to shift blame away from themselves for ISIS and terror attacks? Imagine simultaneously devoting all your efforts to depicting ISIS as the Greatest and Most Evil Threat Ever, while knowing the vital role you played in its genesis and growth. By Glenn Greenwald.

Whistleblowers are always accused of helping America’s enemies (top Nixon aides accused Daniel Ellsberg of being a Soviet spy and causing the deaths of Americans with his leak); it’s just the tactical playbook that’s automatically used. So it’s of course unsurprising that ever since Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing enabled newspapers around the world to report on secretly implemented programs of mass surveillance, he has been accused by “officials” and their various media allies of Helping The Terrorists™.

Still, I was a bit surprised just by how quickly and blatantly – how shamelessly – some of them jumped to exploit the emotions prompted by the carnage in France to blame Snowden: doing so literally as the bodies still lay on the streets of Paris.

Holland 2015 [no label, 2CD]
E-Live Festival, De Enck, Oirschot, Holland; October 24, 2015. Very good audience recording.

Formed in the ’70s, Ash Ra Tempel was initially made up of Manuel Gottsching (guitar), Harmut Enke (bass) and Klaus Schulze (ex-Tangerine Dream) (drums), after purchasing Pink Floyd’s sound equipment in London. The idea was to combine blues-influenced improvisations and new sounds with traditional instruments: guitar, bass and drums. Over the years, Gottsching has remained the mainstay of the cosmic or ambient space rock group.

Celebrating 40 Years Of Ronnie Wood [GR14, 2CD]
Unknown dates and venues. Very good to excellent audio – soundboard? radio broadcasts?

Thanks to ghostryder14 for compiling and sharing the tracks on the net. While this is a labour of love, unfortunately, the source for the tracks is not indicated – a pity, as most fans would like to know.

ghostryder14 noted:

I couldn’t let 2015 pass without celebrating the 40th anniversary of when Ronnie joined the Stones. It bugs me how he gets a raw deal with some Stones fans who compare him to Mick Taylor. I like them both for different reasons. With this collection I’ve mostly stayed away from the traditional songs and focused on the material from the ’70s and ’80s. Editing, Mixing, and Artwork Done by Me. I hope you like it.

Tom Tom Club was founded in 1981 by husband-and-wife team Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz, both also known for being members of Talking Heads. Originally established as a side project from Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club comprised a loose aggregation of musicians, sound engineers, and artists of the Compass Point All Stars family, including Tina Weymouth’s sisters and guitarist Adrian Belew. – wikipedia
