GO THE HARD WAY

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 21 October 2014 at

Lee Kung-lok’s 3D Naked Ambition (2014) is a look on the lighter side of the Japanese adult video industry but with Chapman To and his unlikely comments on the stuff of Hongkongers, the film has become much more relevant in spite of itself. Stephen Tan reviews.

While thousands of Hongkongers took to the streets to take part in the Occupy Central movement (click here), many at home ended up watching TVB series, Line Walker, trying to figure out the undercover agents in the policier. Perhaps the more pertinent and certainly the more resonant film is Lee Kung-lok’s 3D Naked Ambition (2014). In the face of actual police brutality, Naked Ambition star, Chapman To, posted on Facebook: “When Chapman To, the one who offends everyone, speaks up, (it can be) a small thing. But now, Chow Yun Fat, the one whom everyone wants to take a picture with, says you are doing something. Even Tony Leung, the one who doesn’t speak a lot, has spoken. You are in big trouble.”

Live at the Rockefellers, Houston, TX; August 21, 1988 (early show). Very good soundboard.

David Crosby was arrested and jailed on drug and weapons charges in Texas in May 1982. Crosby was sentenced to two terms, but the conviction was overturned; arrested several more times, he finally turned himself in to the authorities in December 1985. He would spend eight months in prison. Based on a promise he made to Crosby should he clean himself up, Neil Young  rejoined CSN in the studio upon Crosby’s release from prison for American Dream in 1988. – Wikipedia

TONY OXLEY/DEREK BAILEY QUARTET
Crawley 1993 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Outside-In, Hawth Centre, Crawley, UK; September 1993. Excellent FM broadcast.

While the music is not considered ear-shattering, it is also not for the faint-hearted.

Thanks to PsyKies for sharing the tracks at Dime.

PsyKies noted:

Recorded by me off air direct from the original broadcast in 1993 to a Panasonic Hi-Fi VHS video recorder in SP audio only mode. Sometime in the mid to late 1990s I misguidedly transferred all my radio recordings to VHS LP audio mode. This combined with the age of the tapes has resulted in some evident distortion throughout. Transferred to CD-R in the late 1990s and converted to FLAC in September 2009.

LITTLE FEAT – FIRST ALBUM REHEARSALS

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 18 October 2014 at

LITTLE FEAT
First LP Rehearsals [no label, 1CD]
Unknown venue and date. 1971(?) Good to fairly good soundboard. [First time in circulation.]

Thanks to Professor Goody for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Professor Goody noted:

I’ve received a beautiful gift and I want to share it with the world. Starting right here. It’s just a little thing. Nothin’ huge… Well, not “huge” in actual size. It’s a teeny, tiny little thing… I’ll say it here before someone else does… Wish there was more… This is unbelievable stuff, friends. I can’t wait for you to hear it… Then, since it goes by so quick, you won’t feel guilty about hitting the “replay”… None of this has appeared anywhere before, for any price, or in any official capacity. Figured someone might ask…

One thing I’d like to recommend is to listen to one channel of these songs at a time for yourselves, at some point. Since the separation is so drastic, you can really hear just the guitar or vocal with very little of the other channel’s interference. I’ve chosen to leave it that way in mastering this tape, in order to maintain the archive as closely to how I found it before I did what I thought were the necessities to give it its rightful presentation.  And it’s got a nice old school vibe…

JOE SATRIANI – LONDON 1993

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 18 October 2014 at

JOE SATRIANI
London 1993 [no label, 1CD]
Live at The Apollo, Hammersmith, London, UK; February 5, 1993. Excellent BBC Radio 1 FM broadcast. Complete broadcast, incomplete show.

As a rock guitarist, Joe Satriani needs no introduction. After all, his former students include Steve Vai, Kirk (Metallica) Hammett; Alex (Testament) Skolnick; Larry (Primus) LaLonde and Charlie Hunter.

In October 1993, Satriani released his fifth studio album, Time Machine. While this Hammersmith setlist (below) did not include any of the album’s new songs, the selection did serve as an enticing curtain raiser to the then new album.

DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING?

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 18 October 2014 at

The Occupy movement in Hongkong has energised young Hongkongers. They have responded to calls that they are “naive” with a response drawn from John Lennon’s Imagine. “You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one.” The media have since stopped counting the number of protestors on the streets.

Faraway in England, Hongkong students at Oxford University have banded together, revealed their faces, to sing a song from Les Miserables, “Do You Hear The People Sing?” in their native Cantonese.

BOB DYLAN – LOS ANGELES, JUNE 7, 1978 – ALTERNATE RECORDING B (Mike Millard Master Vol 4)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 17 October 2014 at

BOB DYLAN
Los Angeles 1978
The Lost and Found Mike the MICrophone Tapes Vol Four [Mike Millard first gen via JEMS, 2CD]
Live at the Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, CA; June 7, 1978. This is the same show as Vol 3 in the series. However, it is an alternate recording – Recording B master. Very good to excellent audience recording. Incomplete show.

Thanks to Mike Millard for the recording; JEMS for the efforts; and to mjk5510 for sharing this at Dime.

Original notes:

JEMS is pleased to release the fourth in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77.

Incredibly, our fourth installment is an alternative SECOND Millard recording from the final performance of Dylan’s seven-night residency at the Universal Amphitheater in June 1978. That’s right, the same performance as Volume 3 of our series, but a different recording made by Millard with a completely different rig. In addition to his familiar AKG 451E mics (CK-1 capsules) > Nakamichi 550 set up, Millard ran a pair of Nakamichi CM-50 microphones into a Uher CR-240 cassette recorder. We believe this is the first verified example of Millard recording on different gear and he uses the same set up for future shows in our series.

This recording also marks the first time in the run that Mike was able to capture the show from the very start, the instrumental version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” So we get the beginning of the show, but not the full encore, as the last song of the night, “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” is omitted. (Note: It can be found on Vol Three of the series.)

Here’s to the late, great Mike the MICrophone and to finding more lost tapes.

BK for JEMS

JACKSON BROWNE – NEW YORK 2014

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 17 October 2014 at

JACKSON BROWNE
New York 2014 [Mr Railing Recording, 2CD]
Live at the Beacon Theater, New York, NY; October 7, 2014. Good to fairly good audience recording. A bit distant.

On September 28, 2014, thousands of Hongkongers took to the streets as part of Occupy Central to protest for electoral reforms. In return, the police fired tear gas into the protestors. Until today, the protestors have continued to remain on the streets. Given that Jackson Browne is a well-known activist – he is no stranger to civil disobedience – it would have mattered if he had said a few words of encouragement to the Hong Kong protestors. After all, his latest album – released on the day of this show – is called Standing In The Breach. The Hongkong Occupy Central movement is using this phrase “You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one” on posters, placards and grafitti.

+ + + + +

Some might quibble over the sound – it’s clear though a bit “hollow” and “distant” – but Mr Railing deserves our thanks and full marks for the effort.

Mr Railing’s notes:

Show started promptly at 8 pm, so I missed some of the first song setting up. During Track 12, I got busted by security. He came charging with a flashlight blaring in my eyes, so I couldn’t see what was going on until he was in my face. I was told I was not allowed to audio tape and shut it down now! Then he came back and told me if he saw my recorder on or the mics, he would throw me out. Each time he opted to loudly speak directly into my ear, helping preserve the quality of the recording. Either I’m not a good listener or just stupid, as I never turned off the recorder. I handheld the mics in my lap for the next song. After that I placed the mics back on the more concealed lower rail for the rest of the show. Where possible I cleaned up some mic bumps on Track 12 and 14, but many still remain. Luckily, they occur only during talking. No music was lost or harmed during the bust.
