Dallas 1993 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Dallas City Limits, Dallas, Texas; December 17, 1993. Very good audience recording.

It was the early 90s. Judas Priest had survived a trial concerning a connection of the suicides of two young men to their music, and they released the classic Painkiller album in 1990. Whilst things were starting to look up for the band, Rob Halford’s musical tastes and desires were beginning to change; he was turned onto the newer metal bands – notably, Pantera. Rob Halford consulted Priest about changing up their musical style to fit the then-modern metal scene. They were unwilling to shift to a new sound so quickly, so Halford formed a new band called Fight to suit his musical needs. Tensions rose between him and his Priest bandmates and he left the band in 1992, allowing him to fully focus on Fight. It’s worth noting that Judas Priest drummer Scott Travis was also a band member, though Travis’ decision to join Halford in this band apparently had little effect on his relationship with the remaining Priest members, and so he stayed in the band through the ‘Ripper’ Owens era.

The music on [the group’s 1993 debut album, War Of Words] does indeed sound mostly like a cross between Judas Priest’s classic heavy metal sound and Pantera’s groove metal sound, with guitars that have more of a crunch. The songs are kept fairly “to the point” so to speak, meaning there are no 6/7 minute Priest-style epics found here. However, much of Travis’ hard-hitting speed metal drumming style heard on Painkiller transfers over to this album, perhaps a redeeming factor for Priest fans if Halford alone wasn’t enough to reel them into the new musical territory of Fight. Halford’s singing style is pretty much the same as it was in Judas Priest; he uses none of the growling styles of vocalists like Phil Anselmo and Max Cavalera (who was venturing further into groove metal territory with Sepultura during this time), choosing instead to continue showing off his high-pitched screams and shrieks, though he does also often sing in a lower register. Often he will have gang-style backing vocals accompanying him, such as in “Nailed to the Gun” and “Vicious”, which helps re-create the in-your-face attitude of the bands Halford was influenced by. – Click here for more

Fight had released War Of Words in September 1993 and the entire album is featured at this show.

Bremen 2016 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Moments, Bremen, Germany; May 9, 2016. Excellent FM broadcast.


You know that old conversation starter “If you were having a dinner party and could invite anyone, who would you invite?” Well, good old Texas Jewboy, musician and author, Kinky Friedman, would be on my list… Vocally he’s no Sinatra and on the acoustic guitar he’s no Django. But, what Friedman lacks in musical skills he makes up with his offbeat personality and charm… Friedman does have a knack for picking great songs to cover like that one from Tom Waits (“Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis”) as well as “My Shit’s Fucked Up” from another twisted songwriter, the late Warren Zevon.

Home advantage provided no guarantee to the French soccer team. And Portugal’s star player Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the field after playing less than half an hour also did not weaken the visitors. What the visitors had was a fighting spirit and a little bit of luck. By Cesar Chelala.

It has been said that soccer matches are as unpredictable as blind dates. And that was never truer that in the last game for the 2016 European Championship between France and Portugal (on July 10). By almost all criteria – quality as a team, recent victory over Germany, game being played in France and seasoned players – France should have been victorious. By Fate, as coquettish as an adolescent in love, proved otherwise and Portugal became the winner.

There was a nice side to a probable French victory, since almost half of whose players are of African origin. As John Carlin, writing for the Spanish newspaper El País, has stated: Some French players are Muslim, with names like Mandanda, Rami, Umtiti, Matuidi, N’Golo, Sissoko and Pogba. Even Griezmann, France’s The Little Prince, comes from an immigrant family.

Dallas 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Winspear Opera House, Dallas, Texas; May 8, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording. (May 9, 2016):

Paul Simon knows there’s no real trick to getting old. It just sort of happens. You keep doing what you do, and maybe you do it with grace. At Winspear Opera House on Sunday night, Simon didn’t do anything too fancy. He was just himself – and he was as charming as ever. You’d never know the guy is 74 years old.

But Simon understands that sometimes the less you say the better, and where he may have excelled most on Sunday was as a musical arranger. His backing band was stellar, switching between instruments (one of the drummers even played slide guitar from behind his kit) and genres, hopping with ease from African rhythms to Spanish melodies…

No tricks, nothing fancy, but still beautiful after all these years.

South Africa 2006 [no label, 2CD]
Birthday Concert for Mahatma Gandhi. Live at the Durban City Hall, Durban, South Africa; October 2, 2006. Very good soundboard.

With all the violence that is around, perhaps it is time to recall what Mahatma Gandhi once said: “We have resolved to utilize all our resources in the pursuit of an exclusively nonviolent struggle. Let no one commit a wrong in anger. This is my hope and prayer. I wish these words of mine reached every nook and corner of the land.”

BBC: Mahatma Gandhi has come to be known as the Father of India and a beacon of light in the last decades of British colonial rule, promoting non-violence, justice and harmony between people of all faiths. Gandhi hoped to win people over by changing their hearts and minds, and advocated non-violence in all things. After passing his bar in Britain, he returned to India to practise law. He found he was unable to speak at his first court case, however, and when presented with the opportunity to go to South Africa, left India again. When he arrived there, however, he became disgusted with the treatment Indians faced by the white settlers.

Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869. He died on January 30, 1948.

Seventy-one years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, proponents of nuclear weapons still insist they will prevent further wars. But it just takes one idiot. By David Krieger.

The International Court of Justice (“Court,” or “ICJ”), the world’s highest court, issued its Advisory Opinion on the legality of the threat or use of nuclear weapons on July 8, 1996. Thus, this week marks the 20th anniversary of that momentous opinion.

The Court found in a split vote (7 to 7), with the casting vote of the Court’s president Mohammed Bedjaoui deciding the matter, that the threat or use of nuclear weapons would generally be illegal under international law. The Court could not determine whether it would be legal or illegal to threaten or use nuclear weapons “in an extreme circumstance of self-defense, in which the very survival of a State would be at stake.”

with Nicholas Carter, conducting
Dallas 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Eugene McDermott Concert Hall, Morton H Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas, TX; April 28/May 1, 2016 (broadcast on June 20, 2016). Very good FM.

J Robin Coffelt,

Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is polarizing. On the one hand, it’s hugely crowd-pleasing, and is a boon for ticket sales. On the other, it’s frequently (okay, very frequently) programmed, so lots of musicians and critics are justifiably tired of playing and reviewing it. I am not one of those critics.

Yes, it’s quite true that Carmina lacks harmonic complexity. It’s true that it’s bombastic and rather silly. But 400 or so musicians and singers onstage, launching into “O Fortuna”? The sonic bath that is Carmina Burana has yet to get cold for me. Maybe someday that will happen, but now, the joy in listening to this has for me only been outstripped by the joy of playing it. It’s the orchestral equivalent of early Beach Boys or Beatles. Yeah, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and “Little Deuce Coupe” aren’t Pet Sounds or Sergeant Pepper, nor is Carmina Burana Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis or the Mahler 8 – but it’s still good, speaker-rattling fun. When it’s performed as well as it was Friday evening by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra at the Meyerson, that joy is multiplied.
