Denmark 1997 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Roskilde Festival, Roskilde, Denmark; June 29, 1997. Very good radio broadcast.

For those not grooving to Aphex Twin or for anyone curious enough to find out…

Richard James is one of the most eccentric personalities on the electronic scene. His minimal need to sleep is legendary and he maintains that he makes music even when he is asleep. The instruments are more or less home-made which adds to the highly personal nature of his sound: an almost hysterical, sometimes entertaining, sound landscape which has inspired many techno and ambient names. Brian Eno and Philip Glass are some of his idols as well as the techno names Juan Atkins and Derrick May. He is extraordinarily productive and releases records under several names, for example, AFX, Polygon Window and Aphex Twin.

Thanks to the person who shared this at Dime.

Uploader’s notes:

A great live set from Aphex Twin. Originally circulated years ago on the IDM mailing list on CD, finally getting round to doing something with it. This version has 11 tracks as opposed to the shorter version which you can sometimes find around on slsk and the like.

Recorded from Radio (Swedish National Radio P3) to Harddrive to CDR to Wav to Flac

The cries and groans of a girl raped by her stepfather are contrasted with the cries of the young prostitutes in Thailand but it is Charlene Choi who gets the limelight in Herman Yau’s not-that-bleak Sara (2015). Stephen Tan reviews.

For Hong Kong actress Charlene Choi, and one half of Canto-pop group Twins, the movie Sara (2015) was a gamble that paid off. For an established pop star and actress, acting in a Category III movie is not only a serious undertaking, it can easily break careers.

And yes, Choi does appear topless – at least a tinny bit of profile and from the back – and that’s about all the skin you are going to get. Her character gets raped early in the movie; she does get down to give Simon Yam a blowjob (judiciously shot with the actress offscreen) and there are a couple of sex scenes which are all thrust-and-grunt but nothing really explicit. If you have seen any of the Japanese or Korean or even Chapman To’s own soft-porn flicks, Sara may even come as a disappointment.

White Dove [Dandelion 083/84, 2CD]
Live at the Irving Plaza, New York City, NY; December 8, 1997. Excellent soundboard.

This was a benefit show for the Hale House, a home for the treatment of drug-addicted and AIDS babies. If you want to collect the best shows from each year, there are Dylan fans out there who have every show Dylan ever played since the ’70s and this is one of the recommended shows from 1997. Excellent sound.

This incredible CD will blow you away. Flat out. The perfect quality soundboard recording is a re-release of the 1998 Scorpio title “Tonight I’ll Be Playing Here For You”. Never one to be out done, Dandelion gives it a little extra umph to the low mids to create an even more powerful sound than the original. (Of course, this could be done on any quality home stereo system with good graphic equalization). To top it all off, Dandelion throws in an incredible quality soundboard filler of the Prince’s Trust Concert from the 1996 broadcast from Hyde Park, London. An essential set!

Thanks to raincoat1 for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Germany 1986 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Club Ritz, Aachen, Germany; May 11, 1986. Very good audience recording.

It was 29 years ago today…

Rooted in the 1980s hardcore punk scene, Butthole Surfers quickly became known for their chaotic and disturbing live shows, black comedy, and a sound that incorporated elements of psychedelia, noise, punk rock and, later, electronica, as well as their use of sound manipulation and tape editing… Although they were respected by their peers and attracted a devoted fanbase, Butthole Surfers had little commercial success until 1996’s Electriclarryland. – wikipedia

Thanks to Dimenew who recorded the show; and toCreatured for sharing it at Dime.

Didn’t know what to expect, just being told, that these guys are worth seeing. Club Ritz is a small club downtown Aachen, at Wirichsbongardstrasse, close to the famous Elisenbrunnen, where crowned celebrities of former centuries got their healing by the famous Aachen sulphur springs. Can’t tell if Gibby and team had a taste as well, whatever they took, they blew us away. I remember having stood on a bench on the left side of the stage (seeing from the stage on their right) fairly much in the front. And after roughly 20 mins I was wondering if I had taken some acid, as this show was soooo f*** insane.

Boston 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Sculler’s, Allston, Boston, MA; April 17, 2015. Very WGBH-HD-FM Boston broadcast.

The New York Times called jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson a “singer with a feline touch and impeccable intonation.”

In May of 2015, as part of a new agreement with Motema Records, Karrin heads back into the recording studio for a very intimate look at the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. For Karrin, who actually played Nelly Forbush in a production of South Pacific as a teenager, this album is a return. “I’ve been all around the world musically, from bop and bossa and chanson to blues and singer-songwriters. And now, I feel like coming home. I find myself powerfully drawn to the world of Rodgers and Hammerstein.”

“Why? Well, the tunes for starters, gorgeous melodies, near perfect lyrics, music that begs to be sung. Music filled with innocence, optimism, a confident can-do response to any problem, an appealing wiseguy humor, a sense that we all belong together on this wonderful planet. So, Rodgers & Hammerstein in very spare, honest settings – just a singer, telling the story…” – The Houston Press

General Atomics might even use John Williams’ Imperial March to soundtrack its drone ad but what is terrifying is not the explosion but the stretches of silence that will resound long after it. By David Yearsley.

Obama’s admission on April 23, 2015 that a US drone attack had killed two innocent hostages, one of them an American, in a suspected al-Qaeda compound on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border could hardly be taken as real contrition, the President’s graying hair, somber demeanor, and condoling tone notwithstanding. The appearance of remorse for this attack stood in contrast to the lack of it in response to the documented murder of so many children in the drone war.

In an attempt to dampen the public relations fallout from the collateral killing of the two aid workers, Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto, the administration promised a review of the guidelines for lethal drone strikes.

Los Angeles 1974 [A Flying M Production, 1CD]
Live from the Record Plant, Los Angeles, CA; (September-October) 1974. Re-Broadcast in February 1975. Very good KMET-FM.

Sparks is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks’ music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell’s wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron’s sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael’s falsetto voice and Ron Mael’s keyboard style. – wikipedia

Paris 1991 [BARN166, 2CD]
Live at the Parc De L’Ile St Germain, Paris, France; July 3, 1991. Fairly to very good audience recording. A bit distant. Previously uncirculated.

Thanks to BARN/Scott Bernstein for sharing the show at Dime.

BARN noted:

Not only is this my favorite Van Morrison concert – I would still rate this as one of the best (of THOUSANDS) concerts I’ve ever attended, by any musician or band! Why? Well, let’s set the scene: How about being given the opportunity to see one of your favorite musicians outdoors in a general admission space in a park on a SPECTACULARLY beautiful summer day in the middle of Paris! I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to spend six weeks studying abroad in Paris in the summer of 1991 and, of course, got to take advantage of the music scene there (also squeezing in a Sting concert and the JVC Jazz Festival where in one day I got to see Pat Metheny Group, John Scofield, and Herbie Hancock all in separate performances).

Amsterdam First Evening [Crystal Cat CC 922-923, 2CD]
Live at the Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; April 10, 2009. Very good audience recording.


Amsterdam First Evening is a unique tape source, different from the one used by Rattle Snake. Crystal Cat is very sharp, loud, and has an in-your-face quality which the label likes. What it lacks in atmosphere (so well captured on Rattle Snake) it makes up for in sheer volume.

There is a strong emphasis in the Good Friday show of songs that speak about human frailty, especially in the first half of the show beginning with “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat.” It is good to hear him play “When I Paint  My Masterpiece,” his Europe travelogue which had made more frequent appearances on this tour. The only song of the night where he played guitar instead of keyboard is “Watching The River Flow.”

Thanks to original uploader absinthe; JTT for the fix; and to Mallory for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Mallory noted: ” Disc Two, Track 3 “Nettie Moore” had a section repeated (From 02:15:140 to 04:09:289). This has been corrected.”

The 1970 Quinvy Demos And More [no label, 1CD]
Demos and outtakes. Very good audio.

Thanks to ghostryder14 who compiled this and sharing it on the net.

ghostryder14 noted:

In October 1970, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded a demo at Quinvy Studios. Producer Quin Ivy did not care for their sound and passed on signing them. The tapes were passed on to Jimmy Johnson of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio who liked what he heard that he took the band under his wing and recorded over an album’s worth of material for a producer’s fee if the album was released. The band never forgot what he did for them and in 1975 and 1976 the current lineups went back and polished up the material with additional overdubs to release an album from the songs they did not re-record over the years.

It was set to be released shortly after the release of their next album Street Survivors. Then the tragic plane crash happened and was named simply Skynyrd’s First And… Last. This collection contains those 1970 demos Jimmy Johnson heard, a 1969 demo, three unreleased and not overdubbed mixes from the 1971 (everything was basically overdubbed in some way on the official versions) plus a few other treats thrown in.
