Berlin 1972 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, Germany; January 18, 1972. Fairly to very good audience recording.

With Jethro Tull‘s 1972 opus ‘Thick as a Brick,’ band mastermind Ian Anderson aimed to subvert the bloated prog-rock excess of his peers while also paying tribute to their epic sweep. And he succeeded. With its absurd lyrical concept, inter-connected musical themes and instrumental bombast, ‘Brick’ celebrated the genre’s complexity while also lampooning its straight-faced one-upsmanship.

Released during the height of the prog boom, the album brought Tull an even broader fanbase, topping the American charts. But at what cost? Half-parody or not, ‘Brick’ was the band’s crowning achievement – and it left Anderson in a tough spot: figuring out how to top it.

Glastonbury 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury Festival, Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, UK; June 28, 2015. Very good audio, extracted from satellite TV broadcast.

“What a night you’ve got,” says Paul Weller gruffly, not, one suspects, a man who’s ever been much given to spending his weekends trudging through mud with glitter on his face carrying a flag that says PAUL AND SPUD’S BARMY ARMY. “Not just us, but The Who as well.”

The audience roar: there are people here in FUCK KANYE T-shirts and a lot of blokes with Liam Gallagher hair. But these days, at least, Weller is nowhere near as musically conservative as some of his fans. The hits understandably get the biggest response – Changingman, You Do Something To Me, That’s Entertainment, a slightly trudgy version of Start!, a sparkier take on Town Called Malice that concludes the set – but the most intriguing stuff he plays is off his most recent album, Saturns Pattern: if it’s less fragmented and strange than its predecessor, Sonik Kicks, there’s still something exploratory and off-kilter about the piano-powered title track, and the dense, ominous psychedelia of opener White Sky.

Glastonbury 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at The Park Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 28, 2015. Very good audio, extracted from webcast.

If you are a Roches fan, you’ll enjoy this.

The Staves are an English acoustic folk rock trio of sisters from Watford, Hertfordshire, England. Made up of Emily, Jessica and Camilla, they began performing as The Staveley-Taylors at open-mic nights. The band’s debut album, Dead & Born & Grown, was released in November 2012. The second full length album, “If I Was”, was released March 23, 2015.


Appearing on one of the festival’s most scenic and serene stages in the afternoon, the trio brought a set filled with hits and harmonies. Playing heavily off their latest album If I Was, which was produced by Justin Vernon, the three sisters were joined on stage for a blissful rendition of ‘Make It Holy’, which features the Bon Iver man on vocals.

France 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Jazz à Vienne, Théâtre Antique, Vienne, France; June 29, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Tunisian Dhafer Youssef is a composer, singer and oud player. He developed an interest in jazz at an early age and clandestinely listened to it during his education at a Qur’anic school. He later left Tunisia to start a jazz career and has lived in Europe since 1990, usually in Paris or Vienna. – wikipedia

In 2013, he released Birds Requiem, of which several of the tracks were performed at this Vienne show. Reviewing the album, Glenn Astarita wrote at

Tunisian oud maestro Dhafer Youssef imparts a holistic world music vista, encompassing jazz, rock and spiritual inclinations while retaining the core Arabic modalities on the aurally picturesque Birds Requiem. And his chant-like, resonating vocals entwine mystical attributes with near-flawless control amid passages that induce an impression of sacred exchanges with a higher entity.

On March 18, 2015, three terrorists attacked the Bardo National Museum in the Tunisian capital city of Tunis, and took hostages. Twenty-one people, mostly European tourists, were killed at the scene, while an additional victim died 10 days later. Around 50 others were injured. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack.

On June 26, 2015, 38 people, 30 of whom were British, were killed when an armed gunman attacked a hotel at Port El Kantaoui, about 10 kilometres north of the city of Sousse, Tunisia. It was the deadliest non-state attack in the history of modern Tunisia, with more fatalities than the 22 killed in the Bardo National Museum attack in March 2015.

This is music for the current Muslim fasting month – perhaps through sacrifice and restrain, one can reflect and know more about oneself (click here).

When BB King was asked why he played in prisons so often, he said he had envisioned himself behind bars. “I’ve never been in trouble myself but I think about it, it could have just as easily been BB King inside, instead of BB King going out there to play.” Just about anybody today has that “chance” of being locked up. Even a 16-year-old boy from $ingapore named Amos Yee, another prisoner of conscience. Jeffrey St Clair of CounterPunch recalls the compassion of BB King, who passed away on May 14, 2015 at the age of 89.

In the summer of 1998, Alexander Cockburn and I spent a few days in North Richmond, California, a battered industrial city just outside of Berkeley. We had just published our book Whiteout on the CIA and drug trafficking and had been invited to speak at a black church about the horrific toll of the drug war on urban America.

North Richmond was the Antietam of this senseless slaughter, its neighborhoods ravaged by gang shootings and police killings, most of them fueled by the crack trade abetted by US intelligence agencies to help fund their covert wars in Central America.

Bonnaroo 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Manchester, TN; June 14, 2015. Very good audio, extracted from webcast.

And now, for a funky good time!

D’Angelo at Bonnaroo 2015, from

If anyone has a right to diss contemporary hip-hop with “no comment”, it’s the hardest-working recluse in show business, R&B Jesus himself, whose only competition in Manchester this weekend used to front a band called Led Zeppelin. But even starting too late to finish with his planned “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” encore, Michael Eugene Archer, known to you and your present and former bedmates as D’Angelo, ground the place up for a movie-length, two-hour set, in no actual contest. Now 41 and so sorely missed that December’s Black Messiah won Pazz and Jop with a mere single week to process it, D’Angelo is as hungry as his fans and showed it without exception on Saturday as he took the stage to the metal-fried soloing and whip-crack snares of “Ain’t That Easy,” making several perfect uses of the James Brown/Prince elongated pause with false ending and even shuffling a few wardrobe changes throughout the 1 am show. D’s unburied falsetto swam through a thicket of horns much more effectively than on the more layered album, for highlights like the mournful “The Charade,” which he dedicated to Michael Brown and other victims of a failed, racially unjust chain of command.

Glastonbury 2015/BBC Sessions 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Glastonbury Festival, John Peel Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 26, 2015. Very good audio extracted from satellite broadcast – some transmission glitches. BBC Radio 2 Sessions; May 21, 2015 (?). Very good satellite broadcast.

American gospel and soul singer Leon Bridges has received rave reviews for his debut album Coming Home, which was released in June 2015. It’s easy to hear why; Bridges’s soul-drenched tone backed by a swaying beat and breezy guitar takes you back to an era of music that valued heart and craftsmanship over the eagerness to just be famous. That said, Leon’s star is only getting brighter, and with a lovely Friday afternoon slot on the John Peel Stage, he could prove to be a true Glastonbury highlight. –

Bridges’s style is soul and gospel resembling 1960s rhythm and blues. The Wall Street Journal described him as a “throwback to ’60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke.” Bridges performs in vintage clothing; Fort Worth Weekly described him as someone whose “music sounds like he looks.” – wikipedia

Glastonbury 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Glastonbury Festival, Pyramid Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, UK; June 28, 2015. Very good audio extracted from satellite broadcast.

The Who (at Glastonbury 2015), claims Pete Townshend, have an easy job: “We ‘ave to send you ‘ome ‘appy.”

Review in

If Saturday night was all about American hiphop’s top brass, Sunday at Glastonbury delivered a distinct British flavour courtesy of The Who. Roger Daltrey was quick to make light of Kanye’s antics the previous night, reminding everyone that Elvis Presley was still the king of rock – despite what Mr West may have said.

Closing Glastonbury 2015, Pete Townshend took to the stage alongside Roger Daltrey in full arm-swinging glory, brandishing his guitar with intent. He more than delivered with a two-hour set of vintage rock at its best that pleased a crowd made up of almost as many teen faces as those belonging to the over-40s…

Patti Smith defies Beijing, invites Dalai Lama to sing ‘Happy Birthday’. The most touching scene is not the cutting of the cake but of the Dalai Lama blessing the khata (scarf) and then drapping it on Patti, and then Patti responding with a kiss on the Dalai Lama’s forehead.

London 1974/New York 1976 [no label, 1CD]
Hookfoot – Live at the Paris Theatre, London, UK; January 12, 1974. Renaissance – Westchester County Center, New York; December 15, 1976. Very good FM broadcasts.

Both Hookfoot and Renaissance are not commonly shared on the net, and so for the collectors – here’s a trip down memory lane. Hookfoot was a British rock band, active from 1970 to 1974. Formed by Caleb Quaye (guitars, piano and vocals) and three fellow DJM session musicians, Ian Duck (vocals, guitars and harmonica), Roger Pope (drums) and David Glover (bass), the band were also backing musicians for Elton John, appearing together on most of his early recordings for DJM. Fred Gandy of Bluesology later replaced David Glover.

Renaissance are an English progressive rock band, best known for their 1978 UK top 10 hit Northern Lights and progressive rock classics like Carpet Of The Sun, Mother Russia, and Ashes Are Burning. They developed a unique sound, combining a female lead vocal with a fusion of classical, folk, rock, and jazz influences. A characteristic element of the Renaissance sound is Annie Haslam’s five-octave voice. – wikipedia
