Oslo 1964 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Njardhallen, Oslo, Norway; April 15, 1964. Very good radio broadcast.

Here’s a short one… and a historical one at that.

Thanks to DuffHimself for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

DuffHimself noted:

Jim Reeves visited Oslo on the Nashville Stars Tour in 1964, which also featured Bobby Bare, Chet Atkins and the Anita Kerr Singers. Much of this tour was recorded, including the now-famous Stockholm concert that lasted over two hours, and a four-CD box-set was released in 2007, featuring three complete shows from Sweden and Germany. The Oslo, Norway show was, however, left out, despite NRK having a complete recording that was broadcast on radio both in 1964 and several times later…

This recording that I present here is the original 1964 NRK radio broadcast, as it was repeated by NRK P1 Radio in 2004 for the 40th anniversary, and I was smart enough to record it unto a cassette tape on my father’s old stereo. It features a brief introduction of the band, the Blue Boys, before Jim hits the stage. He plays some of his biggest Norwegian hits, and is at the end awarded a silver disc for “Adios Amigo”. It then cuts/fades abruptly.

With Henry Kaiser and Michael Mahring
Felton 2014 [A Flying M Production, 3CD]
Live at Don Quixote’s, Felton, CA; November 8, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording.

The Mermen are an American rock band from San Francisco, California that formed in 1989. The group’s sound was originally rooted in surf and psychedelic rock music of the 1960s although they have made “sincere attempts to get away from the surf music label”. – wikipedia

Thanks to flyingM for sharing the tracks at Lossless Legs.

flyingM noted:

First time playing together and no rehearsals. Even though The mermen played a San Francisco style of psychedelic surf music they had never performed any Dead material before. If you like the spacy stuff you will enjoy this Dark Star.

Majority of the first set recorded by Mike Martin with two Sennheiser e-614 microphones on stands near the edges of the stage. Recorded with a core sound 24-96 > IPAC computer (well should say almost recorded)

The first 25 minutes and for almost all of the second set: Neumann KM55 microphones > (possibly) Sony PCM-M10, Recorded in the back of the room and both microphones were on a single stand.

Source used for the final song “Interstellar Overdrive”: found in the “music” section at Recorded by Chris Berry from FOB; 2 Church Audio CA-11 microphones > Sony PCM-M10 at 28/48k; Audacity (fades and cuts) > flac 24 [level 8]

If state-funding paved the way for innovative, experimental films in Austria, in Asia, that belief in free-form creativity has a long way to go. By Philip Cheah.

In Asia, we can only dream about what Austria is doing. State film funding for experimental and innovative films to challenge the boundaries of cinema is unthinkable for many countries in South-east Asia. In $ingapore, for example, the mantra is that the arts must exist in the market. Funding for films is therefore predicated on what sells instead of its inherent merits. Both Austria and $ingapore are often compared for their size and high standards of living. For example, in the Human Development Index 2013, Austria and $ingapore ranked 18th and 19th respectively.

But the Austrian films’ percentage of the local box-office is one of the lowest in Europe. Only about 3 per cent of cinema admissions are taken by domestic productions. The annual Top 10 films at the Austrian box-office are dominated by American product each year. That compares easily with $ingapore, except that we probably have less than 3 per cent of local film admissions.

Hawaiian Under Pressure [Cygnus 016/017, 2CD]
Live at the Neil Blaisdell Center, Honolulu, Hawaii; November 25, 1984. Very good soundboard.

Generally acknowledged as one of Rush’s darkest albums, Grace Under Pressure was thematically influenced by the growing tensions in the Cold War at the time. – wikipedia

In Koji Wakamatsu’s A Pool Without Water (1982), a man bored with his life and work decides to use chloform to knock out his women before raping them. Is that insane or what? Stephen Tan reviews.

Would a drugged or unconscious woman know or not know if she had been raped when she wakes up? That’s the central conceit in Koji Wakamatsu’s A Pool Without Water (1982).

As male sex fantasies go, before the wide use of Rohypnol as a date-rape drug, the idea of using choloform on the intended victim must have been deliciously insane though, as the Man shows, using choloform can be a bit cumbersome! He tried to remove his face mask to get really close to the women but the choloform was just too overpowering!

San Francisco 1967 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Winterland, San Francisco, CA; December 9, 1967. Early set. Fair to good audience recording.

Given the sound, this is for the collector – some might even say it’s almost like scrapping the barrel. Byrds fans, on the other hand, will be eternally grateful. And don’t forget to check out the blistering Milestones.

Thanks to kneesfudd for the remastering efforts and for sharing the tracks at Dime.

kneesfudd’s notes:

Non hi-fi but magical & illuminating none-the-less.

WARTS: A little choppy and has tiny speed glitches a couple of times, but overall acclimate to the altitude and you will fly. Surely missed some dropouts and tape garble (or couldn’t repair them). Track 04 has a late, rough start with some tape chew and speed issues for a few seconds but it’s MUCH smoother than it was. Track 08 has cut in it near the end.

unknown mono recording equipment > master audience mono reel-to-reel tape > unknown generations of tape > unknown generation Maxell XLII-90 cassette, Dolby B off.

Remastering 2014-12: flacs > Audacity (glitches, dropouts, clap reduction, volume adjustments, Trax 1 and 2 averaged -0.65 pitch correction, then at tapeflip or tape change from #3 until the end averaged -1.35 – both single pass per segment after frequency analysis and with pitchpipe verification, no equalisation). More offset adjustments – checked & fixed every 30 seconds. Many more glitches patched and fixed MANY volume variations including several hundred to match up the channels better (it’s from a mono tape & you could hear ‘em!). Also fixed a lot of the tape chew/jitter issues in the first 2 minutes. Most claps were reduced a LOT, one by one.

Roxy 1986/Italy 1987 [no label, 1CD]
Live at The Roxy, Los Angeles, CA; 1986. Very good FM broadcast. Live at the Rockin’ Umbria Festival, Umbertide, Italy; August 29, 1987. Fairly to very good soundboard (vinyl rip).

There was a time in the early to mid-’80s in the UK when The Jesus And Mary Chain could do no wrong. With their wall-of-feedback and melodic tunes, fans were lapping up both Psychocandy (1985) and Darklands (1987) and their hit single, Some Candy Talking, and you have the NME proclaiming this Scottish group “the best band in the world”. The hyperbole notwithstanding, they were and are still a pretty hot band.

Thanks to exene, Mr Cassette and bluejane99 for sharing the Roxy show at Dime. Thanks also to tantxu for sharing the Italian show.

BBC 2014 [no label, 1CD]
The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe (with Richard, Teddy and Kami Thompson; and Zak Hobbs and James Walbourne), BBC; December 17, 2014. Very good FM.

In a project that started with an email, Teddy Thompson (son of Richard and Linda), who has his own top 10 album under his belt, has gathered up his clan to record an album together. Joining these three are Kami (daughter of Richard and Linda), her husband James Walbourne, Jack Thompson (Teddy’s brother) and Zak Hobbs, Richard’s grandson. Teddy Thompson says: “Growing up you are formed by your parents, and then when you get to be 18 or 19 and you get out of the house, you want to distance yourself from your parents. That’s natural. That was the case for me musically. I wanted to get away from them. Then you realise you can’t because that’s who you are. So you come round again.” Everybody wrote and recorded their songs where they live and once the songs were done, the family met up for four days of studio time in London and New York City, where the tracks were recorded with Teddy producing. The album, Family, was released on November 17, 2014. –
