With Dorothy Parker and Bob Newhart 1959/1960 [no label, 1CD]

Live at WFMT Studios, Chicago, IL. Dorothy Parker – February 1959; Bob Newheart – April 1960. Re-broadcast on September 30, 2016. Fairly to very good FM broadcasts.

Studs Terkel was an American author, historian, actor, and broadcaster. He received the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1985 for “The Good War”, and is best remembered for his oral histories of common Americans, and for hosting a long-running radio show in Chicago. He passed away in 2008 at the age of 96.

In 1914, Dorothy Parker sold her first poem to Vanity Fair. At age 22, she took an editorial job at Vogue. She continued to write poems for newspapers and magazines, and in 1917 she joined Vanity Fair, taking over for P.G. Wodehouse as drama critic. That same year she married a stockbroker, Edwin P. Parker. But the marriage was tempestuous, and the couple divorced in 1928. In 1922, Parker published her first short story, “Such a Pretty Little Picture,” for Smart Set. When the New Yorker debuted in 1925, Parker was listed on the editorial board. Over the years, she contributed poetry, fiction and book reviews as the “Constant Reader.”

American stand-up comedian and actor Bob Newhart is noted for his deadpan and slightly stammering delivery. He came to prominence in the 1960s with his album of comedic monologues, The Button-Down Mind Of Bob Newhart. Newhart later went into acting, starring in two long-running and award-winning sitcoms, first as psychologist Dr Robert “Bob” Hartley in the ’70s in The Bob Newhart Show; and then as innkeeper Dick Loudon in the ’80s in Newhart.

As Alan Wieder shows in his book, Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, But Mostly Conversation, Terkel felt most folks had something he could learn from and that made his radio shows a thrill to listen to and his books engrossing reading. Book review by Ron Jacobs.

When I was in Junior High, I had a job delivering the Washington Post newspaper to about 60 houses in and near my neighborhood. I would often end my Saturday route by riding my bike to the local shopping center where I would eat breakfast at the drugstore counter with a couple other newsboys. This was where I had my first cup of coffee, although I preferred the vanilla cream soda.

Usually, after paying the dollar or so for the eggs, bacon and toast, I would make my way over to the newsstand in the drugstore and read as much of as many magazines as I could until the clerk would tell me to pay or leave. My standard reading material was sports magazines, teen music magazines, science fiction magazines and the police crime pulp magazines.

Roslyn 1978 [no label, 2CD]

Live at My Father’s Place, Village of Old Roslyn, NY; July 13, 1978. Fairly to very good Pre-FM.

John Prine celebrated his 70th birthday on October 10, 2016.

Thanks to EN; and to nobody for sharing the show at Dime.

EN noted:

JP is turning a milestone 70 on the 10th day of this 10th month, so in honor of that septoccasion I ran this through the machines a bit and tried to free the high end from the compressed, claustrophobic sound it previously featured. Because this appears to be a stage-mic situation, with the vocal mics fed through the board for that singing-up-front type radio concert vibe, the band comes through a little on the muddy side on the ensemble tunes.

I smashed it up between a taste of the Graphic EQ and Graphics Dynamics tools in Sound Forge 9, and smoothed out the volume track to track, as it was somewhat this side of all over the place. Additionally, I stripped in, and matched the best I could, the very beginning of Paradise, which was missing from this tape… I used the Bottom Line, NYC FM broadcast of two days before (July 11) of which I saw a boot CD the other day in Amoeba Berkeley. Now it seems a tad more like the typical, balanced pre-FM fare we all know and love so well. I titled and tagged the files like I always do, made new fingerprints, and I separated the radio intro by (WLIR legend of my youth) Larry Kleinman, so you can get right to the music if you want.

This is captured at the height of John’s mythical Bruised Orange tour, and I think I got it into a sonic territory less distinguishable from an official live record and more towards a quality worthy of the exquisite and intimate performance, taped as it was at one of the all-time legendary, long-gone clubs of the fast-passing Golden Age. At least it’s an improvement and likely sounds a Maywood acre or two better than the condition I found it in. Anyway, enjoy and a million more fish and whistles to songwriting deity of distinction John Prine, before he is at last seen off to Heaven.

My cassettes have held up over the years better than the master reels of these shows.
The master 1/4″ reels (recorded on Ampex 456 grand master tape) would need to be literally “baked” in order to squeeze out one final play as the oxide flakes off the tape!

Nashville 2016 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music, Nashville, TN; September 23, 2016. Very good to excellent audience recording.

In March 2016 Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, guitars in hand, boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station looking to reconnect with the culture of American railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers.


“Brit” Billy Bragg and “Yank” Joe Henry have recently collaborated on one of the most unique and interesting musical projects in recent memory. Modernizing the concept of “field recordings,” Bragg and Henry used several American railroad stations as their “fields.” Their exploits travelling and recording at the stops along Amtrak’s Texas Eagle railway route from Chicago to Los Angeles are well-documented (click here) for their new record, Shine A Light, which was released on this day (September 23, 2016). At this late Friday afternoon performance at Grimey’s record store, Bragg prefaced “The L&N Don’t Stop Here Anymore” with reference to its appropriateness to the current state of the Union Station.

Portland 2016 [no label, 1CD]

Live at OPB Studios, Portland, Oregon; October 5, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HD webcast).

In this concert, filmed at OPB in Portland, Oregon, the long-running rock band Drive-By Truckers performs its timely and politically charged new record, ‘American Band’, in its entirety. Over the course of a set that includes all 11 of the record’s songs, the group tackles social and political issues with firebrand zeal. Racism, immigration, gun violence, hate symbols and censorship all get their turn in the crosshairs of the band, fronted by Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. But the record isn’t driven by unfocused anger: It’s a poignant take on what it means to be an American in a time when uncertainty and fear are omnipresent. As Hood says, he hopes to “turn on that light in the basement and see what’s scampering so we can figure out what we’re dealing with.”

John Zorn Plays Ennio Morricone
New York 1986 [no label, 1CD]

World Premiere of “Once Upon A Time In The East Village”: The Music of Ennio Morricone, Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York City, NY: October 31, 1986. Fairly to very good audience recording. Slight hiss.

Treat this as a precursor or a companion disc to John Zorn in Verona, Italy 1988 (click here).

John Zorn’s tribute album, The Big Gundown (1985), had caught the attention of Morricone who gave it a ringing endorsement. “This is a record that has fresh, good and intelligent ideas,” said the Italian maestro.

+ + + + +

Thanks to the original uploader; and to Eugene_Debs for sharing the show on the net.

Original notes:

I walked in on the end of the first tune, so that is missing. The original tape was made from the back row of the theatre and was recorded very low due to the extreme dynamic range of this group. Sometime in the late ’80s I did a dub with some compression/noise reduction and EQ and applied some fades. That’s the tape this seed is made from. The master tape is MIA.

The sound overall is good, not great, but this is one AMAZING concert, Zorn’s live performances of this material were few and far between, and AFAIK this is the only show that used such a large ensemble. And with five of the most distinctive axe manglers on the planet in one group… let’s just say that if you could only download one Zorn torrent, this would be a prime candidate.

SuperJam: Tribute To Tennessee Featuring Kamasi Washington And Friends
Manchester, TN 2016 [no label, 2CD]

This Tent, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Manchester, TN; June 11, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to rumbleseat for sharing the show at Dime.

rumbleseat noted:

The SuperJam is a Bonnaroo institution, which brings together musicians from the four-day festival for a night of magic. This year, Kamasi Washington was asked to host the event and, for the theme, he picked “Heart, Soul & Spirit – A Tribute to Tennessee”. The featured songs all had ties to Tennessee, either by way of their composer or their most popular performer. These performances can be hit or miss, given that the performers have had only a brief run-through (or none!) just before the show. When it works, it’s incredible.

Ten questions with Malaysian filmmaker U-Wei Bin Haji Saari… and then some. By Philip Cheah.

It’s always with a sense of trepidation when I find out that the Malaysian filmmaker, U-Wei Bin Haji Saari, would be in the same city as I. Invariably that would mean that we would go on the hunt together. U-Wei is a big game hunter but his game is jazz. He’s such a formidable hunter that if I’m midway through one vinyl rack, he would have knocked off three racks by then.

U-Wei’s consumption of culture is so voracious that he would blow most film critics away by his viewing depth. Most of the time, they end up coming back to him to solicit historical memory. By contrast, his filmmaking output seems modest. Six features at last count.

Another Time, Another Place
Disc 6:
Rare Gems, Demos & Outtakes [Stormbird, 1CD]
Demos and outtakes. Fairly to very good soundboard.

Rolling Stones collectors would probably already have copies or versions of these discs. Recently, Stormbird released a compilation of the Brian Jones-era Rolling Stones tracks/shows, a time when the Stones still mattered. We will be sharing these discs over the coming weeks.

Promo and sleeve notes:

Unique six disc anthology is the rare opportunity to enjoy classic recordings by the Rolling Stones from the Brian Jones era. Included here are digitally remastered versions of live television shows, radio broadcasts, concert appearances and studio outtakes.

This is the legendary lineup of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman in the recording studio during the Rolling Stones R&B heyday.

This is a privileged glimpse into the world of the Rolling Stones as work in the studio as the band took its first steps towards superstardom. The Jagger/Richards writing partnership can be followed as it develops from naive early compositions to the creation of real classics like As Time Goes By. Later versions with added vocals, and additional instrumentation including strings, horns and backing vocals appeared on Metamorphosis.

Included here are the early versions which were recorded by The Stones in the studio during 1964.
