Hollywood 2016 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Palladium, Hollywood, CA; June 3, 2016. Fairly good audience recording.

In 2008, Rage Against the Machine crashed the Republic National Convention, performing a capella versions of “Bulls on Parade” and “Killing in the Name” on the lawn of Minnesota’s state capital. Tom Morello plans to do something similar with his new supergroup Prophets of Rage. Speaking to Bloomberg Politics (via Rolling Stone), Morello revealed that the band will descend on the Republic National Convention taking place in Cleveland this July. Along with Morello, Prophets of Rage consists of Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk along with Chuck D of Public Enemy and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

Minneapolis 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Riverview Supper Club, Minneapolis, MN; November 6, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Stunning keyboard virtuoso Hiromi Uehara took the jazz world by storm with her 2003 debut, Another Mind. Since then her blinding technique has just gotten better, her songwriting is more focused, and her projects have increased in scope and exposure. Anthony Jackson has been a distinctive voice on the electric bass ever since he entered the scene in New York City. He began learning the piano as a teen before switching to the guitar, and finally picking up the bass after being influenced by legendary Motown bassist James Jamerson. He has had more than 3000 recording sessions with more than 500 albums. Steve Smith’s drumming, while always decidedly modern, can best be described as a style that embodies the history of US music. His original love of rudimental parade drumming is evident in his intricate solos. His musical focus is committed to the exploration of improvised music incorporating styles as diverse as blues, jazz, R&B, funk, cajun and south Indian carnatic.

The secret expansion of US military bases and special operations in Africa  has initiated a new and lightweight style of warfare and welcomes the next phase of American military imperialism. By Justin Yun.

Unlike the highly publicized U.S. military “pivot to Asia,” the proliferation of drones, special ops, mercenary spies, classified bases, proxy fighters and cyber warfare constitute what the journalist Nick Turse calls a “new light-footprint Obama doctrine” that “seems to be making war an ever more attractive and seemingly easy option.”

On any day, elite US forces conduct covert missions in an estimated 70 to 90 countries. According to Turse, special forces have been sent to an unprecedented 147 countries – 75 per cent of the world’s nations last year alone. This is a 145 per cent increase from the rate of operations conducted under the Bush administration.

Musician Dave Swarbrick, best known for his work with influential folk group Fairport Convention, has died on June 3, 2016. He was 75. Known as “Swarb”, the musician performed mainly on the violin; and wrote and arranged songs for their albums – including on the influential electric folk album Liege & Lief – and performing with them up until they disbanded in 1979. The band posted a tribute on their website which said Swarbrick “had been seriously ill for some time”. He had struggled with health problems after being diagnosed with emphysema in the 1990s. Blur guitarist Graham Coxon was one of a number of musicians to pay tribute to Swarbrick, tweeting early footage of him playing mandolin with Martin Carthy with the message: “Very sad… Bye, Dave and thanks!” – BBC

Fairport Convention drummer Bruce Rowland died of cancer on June 29, 2015. He was 74. While the group had many members over the years, one of the most prominent was Sandy Denny, who passed away in 1978 at the age of 31.

with Paul Butterfield
San Francisco 1968 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco, CA; June 9, 1968. Very good soundboard. Flying M repaired version.

Thanks to original uploader grner1; quadrophenia; and to Flying M for the repairs and for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.


From Peter Green’s stage comments, this is from one week into Fleetwood Mac’s first US tour and he sounds like he’s having a really good time on the last night of a three-show run with Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. This is presumed to be the last night because Peter Green makes a comment about how they’ll be back in two weeks (not the following night). I think that they returned to the Carousel on the 22nd or 23rd of June.

+ + + + +

Flying M noted:

An excellent stereo soundboard recording from a low generation source that has been available for years so nothing new here. This recording has now been restored repairing 100s of little dropouts and loud electrical noises. Not intended to be a definitive version but was done because I listen with headphones and am so picky about these things. Also have the time to spend as this sort of work requires a lot of patience and quite a few hours to do right (no automatic filters used).

Fillmore East 1971/Central Park 1972 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Fillmore East, New York; February 12, 1971. Very good soundboard. Wollman Rink, Central Park, New York; June 25, 1972. Very good WCBS FM.

The Chambers Brothers are a soul-music group, best known for its 1968 hit record, the 11-minute long song “Time Has Come Today”. The group was part of the wave of new music that integrated American blues and gospel traditions with modern psychedelic and rock elements. Based on their Southern roots, the brothers brought a raw authenticity to their recordings and live performances that was missing from many other acts of that era. Their music has been kept alive through heavy use in film soundtracks. In 2003, the home of Lola and Lester Chambers was broken in to and their record collection, consisting of over 60 Chambers Brothers albums and over 100 singles, was stolen. Lola Chambers had spent 25 years collecting Chambers Brothers records at various venues to leave these for their sons. – wikipedia

In December 2012, Lester Chambers and Alexis Ohanian (Reddit Co-founder) teamed up to launch a kickstarter project together. The result was the Time Has Come release.

This is not the official ‘Live At The Fillmore East’… This is a tape of a show from a couple of years later… Mostly playing stuff from their album ‘New Generation’, which is much funkier than earlier ones.

Washington 2016 [no label, 1CD]
Sasquatch! Music Festival, Sasquatch Stage, The Gorge Amphitheater, George, WA; May 30, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HD webcast).

Sufjan Stevens is a singer-songwriter currently living in Brooklyn, NY. A preoccupation with epic concepts has motivated two state records (Michigan and Illinois), a collection of sacred and biblical songs (Seven Swans), an electronic album for the animals of the Chinese zodiac (Enjoy Your Rabbit), two Christmas box sets (Songs for Christmas, vol. 1-5 and Silver & Gold, vol. 6-10), and a programmatic tone poem for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (The BQE). In 2010 Sufjan released an expansive EP (All Delighted People) and the full length The Age of Adz, a collection of songs partly inspired by the outsider artist Royal Robertson. His most recent release is an album entitled Carrie & Lowell.

Lowell Right Through The Night [Plaz/Goody Remastered Edition, 2CD]
Live at Nagoya-shi Kokaido, Nagoya, Japan; July 1, 1978. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to the original uploader; Plaz; and to Professor Goody for sharing the show at Dime.

Plaz noted:

This is sourced from a compressed stereo soundboard recording of unknown origins available at Track 10, “All That You Dream”, was full of digi-glitches of the sort made by DAT tape errors and some other instances here and there which are heard as very loud clicks and pops, and in quantity sound like bacon sputtering in a frying pan. Track 10 was heavily damaged and still has a lot of background crackle for a little less than 2 minutes; (sorry…) Remastering this material was challenging due to the amount of broadband noise on the source and some terrible DAT errors concentrated in “All That You Dream”, which, in the source, was not an easy listen.

As the 2016 US presidential elections draw near, the received wisdom seems to be “hold your nose” and vote for Hillary Clinton: anyone but Trump. That way, you stop the monster and preserve a system gagging for another war. By John Pilger.

Returning to the United States in an election year, I am struck by the silence. I have covered four presidential campaigns, starting with 1968; I was with Robert Kennedy when he was shot and I saw his assassin, preparing to kill him. It was a baptism in the American way, along with the salivating violence of the Chicago police at the Democratic Party’s rigged convention. The great counter revolution had begun.

The first to be assassinated that year, Martin Luther King, had dared link the suffering of African-Americans and the people of Vietnam. When Janis Joplin sang, “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose”, she spoke perhaps unconsciously for millions of America’s victims in faraway places.
