NEIL YOUNG – HOLLYWOOD 2014

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 2 April 2014 at

NEIL YOUNG
Hollywood 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Solo live at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, CA; March 30, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to Falconidave (David Sell) for recording and sharing the show at Dime.

Falconidave noted:

I still can’t ever imagine life without Neil Young!! What an amazing experience back to back! Neil was very talkative and funny throughout the show, even in the face of “Mr & Mrs Cinnamon Girl” which pissed him off enough to yell a hearty “Fuck You!!” in their direction. The audience was enthusiastic and loud, I did much work knocking the applause down to a very tolerable level, and wiped out ill-timed claps by “late recognizers”.

The crowd around me was very respectful, and the Taping Gods were smiling indeed! The only editing done was decreasing the crowd noise between and during a couple songs, otherwise it’s raw and pure and rivals any Schoeps recording I have ever heard!

Also, thanks to Brian van der Brug (front cover picture, posted at latimes.com and Timothy Norris (back cover picture, posted at laweekly.com).

THE HARDER YOU WORK, THE RICHER THEY GET

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 2 April 2014 at

The rules are stacked against the worker and the little guys. Miminum wages remain too low while rents are too high and taxes for the 1% are too low. It’s a structural problem. Time to rebuild. By Pete Dolack.

It is not your imagination – you are working harder and earning less. Despite significant productivity gains during the past four decades, wages have remained flat.

This is a global phenomenon, not one specific to any country. It is not a matter of the viciousness of this or that capitalist, nor the policy of this or that government. Rather, widening inequality flows naturally from the ideological construct that now dominates economic thinking.

SHAWN COLVIN AND STEVE EARLE – GLENSIDE 2014

SHAWN COLVIN AND STEVE EARLE
Glenside 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Keswick Theater, Glenside, PA; March 29, 2014. Good to very good audience recording.

At mcall.com, John J Moser reviewed the duo’s March 19 gig at Bethlehem, PA:

The best thing was that it seemed the two singers made each other better throughout the 18-song, hour-and-45-minute show. It was evident from the opening song, a cover of The Everly Brothers’ Wake Up Little Susie, which they attacked with enthusiasm, despite the relaxed atmosphere – the two alone on the stage with acoustic guitars, Earle in a flannel shirt and jeans, Colvin in a flowing, flowered dress. For most of the night, they alternated songs, occasionally joining with the other, but more often simply watching with the audience…

Thanks to edtyre for taping the show and sharing the tracks at Dime.

AN APP BUILT FOR TWO

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 1 April 2014 at

A dismembered voice – and an operating system at that – as a male fantasy figure – albeit alluringly voiced by Scarlett Johansson? Critic After Dark Noel Vera looks at why more men than women seem to respond positively to Spike Jonze’s Her (2013).

The way Samantha is cast and the way Johansson plays her, you can’t help but think she’s playing a male fantasy figure, down to her desperate (and heartrendingly pathetic, not to mention disturbingly comic) attempts to please Theodore, especially sexually.

The premise of Spike Jonze’s Her (2013) – a lonely man named Theodore Twombly (who sounds bizarrely like a story by Henry Kuttner and CL Moore) falls in love with his operating system – seems to arouse interest in certain members of the audience, mild-to-intense distaste in others. But more on that later.

FOREIGNER – BRUSSELS 1985

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Monday 31 March 2014 at

FOREIGNER
Brussels 1985 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Forest National, Brussels, Belgium; June 9, 1985. Fair to good audience recording – a bit distant, and a bit of echo.

The early ’80s were particularly successful years for Foreigner, with 4 (1981) featuring singles such as Urgent, Waiting for a Girl Like You, Juke Box Hero and Break It Up; and Agent Provocateur (1984) with hits such as I Want To Know What Love Is and This Was Yesterday.

For those who miss those heady days. A rousing show… if only there is a soundboard or a radio broadcast…

JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO – SOUND OF A WOMAN (UNRELEASED)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 30 March 2014 at

JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO
Sound Of A Woman [no label, 1CD]

Unreleased album, recorded 1996-1997. Excellent soundboard.

Johnette Napolitano was the lead vocalist/songwriter and bassist of Concrete Blonde.

Thanks to govegan for sharing the tracks at Dime.

govegan noted:

As far as I can remember, the collapse of Island happened shortly before the album was due to be released. She toured to promote it and cassette promo copies were mailed to radio stations, which is where this copy came from.

I had one of the copies of this that had been floating around for years, but finally got my hands on one of the original promo cassettes, which appeared to have never been played. I managed to get a great rip of it and, after a little bit of cleanup, it sounds amazing. I’ve downloaded a few different versions of this over the years and this is by far the best that I’ve heard. Even if you’ve downloaded this album before, you should definitely give it another listen.

ERIC CLAPTON – LUCCA 2006

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 29 March 2014 at

ERIC CLAPTON
Lucca Night [Mid Valley 381-382, 2CD]

Live at the Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy; July 7, 2006. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

For those looking for another 2006 show… The performance is very good, perhaps due to having Derek Trucks and Robert Cray in the lineup.

Thanks to original uploader Japrainbow who shared it at Zombtorrent; and to ademotte for sharing it at Dime.

ademotte’s notes:

The bulk of this torrent is sourced from an FM broadcast of an incomplete show from Lucca, Italy; the broadcast faded in during the first song as this one does. The recording itself lacks the fidelity of a typical European FM broadcast – I think because the recording was oversaturated. It’s still a good recording and better than the majority of audience recordings from this tour… This also seems to sound better than the raw FM that appeared on DIME shortly after the broadcast. The bonus tracks are audience recordings, but actually sound pretty good – a few tracks from two different European shows on the same tour, and a Robert Cray opening set from yet another date (I guessed on the song titles for the latter).

JOURNEY – UPPER DARBY 1978

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 28 March 2014 at

JOURNEY
Next Karma [Gypsy Eye 077, 1CD]

Live at the Tower Theatre, Upper Darby, PA; March 24, 1978 (incomplete show?). Very good SB/FM.

Thanks to Bootradr for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Bootradr’s notes:

This is one of my first silver CD Journey shows I got many years ago and it’s from when Steve Perry was still very new in the band. He even gets introduced (a few songs in and when he finally starts singing) as the new member of the band.

One thing I really love about the 1978-1981 Journey live shows is how the band would play songs from before they had Steve Perry, songs that Gregg Rolie normally sang alone on, and they’d implement some harmony with Perry and Rolie singing. It really brought those songs to a new life in my opinion. The band really did this most often between 1978 and 1979 too. Songs that were officially released on earlier Journey albums (not live of course) and never got recorded (in a studio) with Steve Perry also singing on them makes them very unique.

I may be wrong and I’ll have to double check my information, but this may be Steve Perry’s first live recording/show with Journey too. I just looked at my list and this is definitely the first show I have with Perry on vocals.

MICKEY HART AND THE HARTBEATS – LIVING ON THE EDGE

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 26 March 2014 at

MICKEY HART AND THE HARTBEATS
Living On The Edge [Primal Jammin' Grateful Dead!, 3CD]

Live at The Matrix, San Francisco, CA; October 8/30, 1968. Very good soundboard. Restored LP. A DoinkerTape.

Thanks to Doinker for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Doinker’s notes:

It has been said that fan-base hater and all-around loser Todd Rundgren (getting used to oblivion over there, Toddy boy?) went to the Guinness Book Of Records in order to secure the spot for the longest-playing vinyl album. Well, I’m happy to say he’s been surpassed… by a bootleg. Sweet justice, it’s DA DEAD! Three of the four sides here top 41 minutes. Each that is, giving new meaning to the words “Long Playing Record”. You will need to make extra space for this one. In fact, you might want to use a separate CD for each side…

First of all I want to thank Lossless Legs member Andy1099 for shipping me these LPs all the way across the pond. I’ve been wanting to hear them for the longest time; you will also really like this music even if you don’t normally care for the Dead.

THE ORIGINS OF THE ISRAEL LOBBY IN THE U.S.

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 26 March 2014 at

Though Jews only held approximately 6-7 per cent of the land in 1947, they rammed a plan through the UN General Assembly that would have given them 55 per cent of Palestine. Alison Weir on the growth and might of the American Jewish lobby.

The immediate precursor to today’s pro-Israel lobby began in 1939 under the leadership of Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver, originally from Lithuania. He created the American Zionist Emergency Council (AZEC), which by 1943 had acquired a budget of half a million dollars at a time when a nickel bought a loaf of bread.

In addition to this money, Zionists [adherents of “political Zionism,” a movement to create a Jewish state in Palestine] had become influential in creating a fundraising umbrella organization, the United Jewish Appeal, in 1939, giving them access to the organization’s gargantuan financial resources: $14 million in 1941, $150 million by 1948. This was four times more than Americans contributed to the Red Cross and was the equivalent of approximately $1.5 billion today.
