Detroit 1982 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Clutch Cargo’s, Detroit, MI; July 23, 1982. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to Friend of JEMS for taping the show; Mike Ziegler for the transfer; and to weedwacker67 for sharing the tracks at Dime.


Acquired master tape from the JEMS archives. This one captures punk greats X touring in support of their major label debut Under The Big Black Sun. This board recording has been around for years but we believe that is the first time a copy has been circulated directly from the master cassette and the first time based upon information out on the net complete including the last encore I’m Coming Over. This transfer should sound as good if not better than all known circulating copies. (Oct. 2011)

Le Palace [Archivio ARC019, 1CD]
Live at Le Palace, Paris, France; December 4, 1984. Very good to excellent soundboard.

Lloyd Cole And The Commotions’ debut album in 1984, Rattlesnakes, might have been a US college favourite at that time but it certainly was one of the brightest albums of the year and the group was rightly lauded by the NME (NME has included it in its Top 100 Albums of All-Time list). [Though the group was formed in Glasgow, Scotland, Cole was English and he has since moved to the United States.]

To paraphrase a review we ran back in 1985: From the man who wasn’t ready to be heartbroken, Lloyd Cole’s album is a trip down Magazine avenue with its minor characters, broken hearts and desperate dreamers. Propelled by that deliciously melodic guitar, Cole’s character studies are still some of the most compulsive in rock ‘n’ roll.

Tracks such as Perfect Skin, Rattlesnake and especially Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken? have withstood the test of time and continue to be as catchy and biting today as they were then. Here’s hoping that some readers would check out the group’s albums after this “short” introduction.

Carrboro, NC 2014 [no label, 1CD]
Be Loud! Benefit. Live at the Cat’s Cradle, Carrboro, NC; August 9, 2014. Very good soundboard.

The Replacements (with Paul Westerberg) predate Mitch Easter’s Let’s Active by two years – The Mats formed in 1979 while Let’s Active started life in 1981 in North Carolina. A formidable singer-songwriter-guitarist, Mitch Easter is also known for producing R.E.M. And if you are not paying attention, both Easter and Westerberg do sound alike. But more importantly, where would jangle-pop be without The Mats and Mitch Easter?

On August 9, 2014, Let’s Active reunited on stage in Carrboro, NC for the first time in 24 years, performing an 11-song set at Be Loud! ’14, a benefit for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation in memory of 15-year-old Sophie Steiner, who died of cancer last year.

The performance featured bandleader and R.E.M. producer Mitch Easter joined by founding drummer Sara Romweber and Game Theory bassist Suzi Ziegler filling in for original member Faye Hunter, who took her own life last summer. The Love Language’s Missy Thangs assisted on keyboards, and one-time bandmember Lynn Blakey pitched in, too.

Cologne 1979 [Immortal, 1CD]
Live at Studio L, Cologne, Germany; February 16, 1979. Excellent soundboard.

Here is something you do not normally come across. After performing Sultans Of Swing, Mark Knopfler felt it wasn’t good enough so he decided to play it again! “Alright now, let’s do this Sultans and do it properly…”

Thanks to HugoCTD for sharing the tracks at Dime.

HugoCTD noted:

Soundboard recording from the famous Rockpalast concert. Taken from the original silver pressed bootleg “Sultans of swing – live in Germany”.

San Francisco 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Outside Lands Festival, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA; August 9, 2014. Very good audience recording.

At 63 (he turns 64 in October), one would think that Tom Petty would have taken the money and run. But that’s not the Tom Petty fans have long revered. As Billboard pointed out, Tom Petty is still “passionate and kinda pissed”. His latest album, Hypnotic Eye, talks about the unchecked greed of the 1 per cent; about growing old and he has even written a song about the Catholic Church’s sex scandals. While Playin’ Dumb didn’t fit into the new album, the song appeared as a bonus cut on the vinyl and blu-ray release of Hypnotic Eye.

And what makes Hypnotic Eye that much sweeter is that, after all these years, it is Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Thanks to the taper; and to blg for sharing the tracks at Dime.

“Just when I though I was out, they pulled me back in.” Michael Corleone’s plaintive line from the “Godfather” is Obama’s tune today. He’s only returning to Iraq for purely humanitarian reasons… never mind that the US armed and trained ISIS in Jordan to overthrow Syria’s regime. By Eric Margolis.

Armed humanitarianism 2.0. That’s our new western version of old-fashioned 19th century imperialism, now feminized by President Barack Obama’s lady advisors, painted pink and accompanied by the kind of soft piano music you hear in ads for women’s products.

Last week, the Obama administration latched onto the plight of Iraq’s Yazidis who were being persecuted by those awful ISIS folks – just in jolly good time to divert attention from the massacre in Gaza.

Inside Moonlight [Artisan, 1CD]
Sessions for Moonlight Sinatra; November 29-30, 1965. Excellent soundboard.

From dartmansworldofwonder.blogspot:

[Moonlight Sinatra] was released in 1966 and was worked around the theme that every song on the album had something to do with the moon. There was “Moonlight Becomes You”, “I Wished On The Moon”, “Moon Love”, “Reaching For The Moon” and so on and so forth. The title of the album is a play on Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”. The orchestra was led by the great Nelson Riddle. Here are those recording sessions from November 29 and 30 of 1965.

Scarlett Johannsson is the chilling alien who develops a conscience in Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin (2013), but achieves uninspired transcendence in Luc Besson’s Lucy (2014). Critic After Dark Noel Vera reviews.

Scarlett Johannsson in Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin (2013) starts out the way she ends in Lucy (2014), as a blank-faced nonhuman. Only in Under it’s the start of a Kubrickian take on the vampire film, Glazer’s best-effort attempt to adapt an unadaptable novel by Michel Faber (which I haven’t read, for the record).

The first half is really the better part; after an opening involving planetary alignments a la 2001 (sequence ending with a closeup of an eyeball that could as easily be Dullea’s), the film follows a young woman’s predatory practices as she lures men one by one into various apartments and houses, to end up in an eerie reflective pool (a dimensional door, I’m guessing, leading to the home planet of whatever intelligence is directing the lure).

New York 1973 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY; January 23, 1973. Good to fairly good audience recording. Vinyl rip, some pops and crackles.

Posted at

I had orchestra seats in row 24. Neil Young played a great set until someone came on stage and handed him a piece of paper. The note indicated the following: “At 12:30 Paris time today [Tuesday], January 23, 1973, the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam was initialed by Dr Henry Kissinger on behalf of the United States, and Special Adviser Le Duc Tho on behalf of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.”

All Neil said was, “the war is over”. Which erupted into cheers. This did not change his song set as he led the band into “Southern Man”. A memorable evening.

Harvest had been out almost a year… guitarist Danny had OD-ed in November 1972 and here is Neil Young, who was devastated by the death, out on the road again.

Thanks to giona for sharing the tracks at Dime.

giona noted:

I transferred this show from one of the rarest bootlegs of Neil Young. I purchased a large collection of bootlegs from an old collector and I taped the bootleg because the quality of vinyl was poor and easy to damage. A few years later, in the late ’90s, I purchased a Philips standalone 770 and I burned a CD directly from the bootleg. There are several crackles and pops but less than on a previously uploaded version.

BOB DYLAN – TOKYO 1978 (Mr Peach)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 17 August 2014 at

Live In Japan Vol 3 [Tarantura TCDBD-3-1/2, 2CD]
Live at the Budokan Dai-Hall, Tokyo, Japan; February 23, 1978. Very good audience recording by Terry Peach.

In the ’70s, while Mike Millard was wow-ing fans with his “field” recordings, Mr (Terry) Peach was doing the same in Japan. In fact, Mr Peach has also been referred to as the “Mike Millard of Japan”. Here is a 1978 Mr Peach show for your enjoyment and comparison, with the June 1978 Los Angeles show.

Thanks to cevau for sharing the tracks on the net.

gsparaco reviewed in 2012 at

Bob Dylan always sought to reinterpret and rearrange his songs. But the 1978 Street Legal era remains one of the most interesting and radical. Although Dylan began the year with his first trip to Japan for 11 shows, the most recent releases from this year document the European and American shows from later in the year. Even the releases in the past decade documenting the Japan tour focus upon the Osaka and Tokyo shows from later in the tour. Dylan played the first three shows at Budokan in Tokyo. Audience tapes have been in circulation, but none have found their way onto any release. Tarantura have rectified the situation by releasing uncirculated Mr Peach tapes for these shows.
