GEORGE HARRISON – LOS ANGELES 1974

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 8 October 2014 at

GEORGE HARRISON
Los Angeles Express Soundboard Master [Misterclaudel MCCD-103/104, 2CD]
Live at the Los Angeles Forum, Los Angeles, CA; November 12, 1974 (matinee). Very good soundboard. Seattle Coliseum, Seattle, WA; November 4, 1974. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to gustav766 for sharing these tracks at Dime.

gsparaco at collectorsmusicreviews.com wrote in 2009:

One of the nicest surprises to surface on Wolfgang’s Vault is this incomplete very good quality soundboard recording of George Harrison’s matinee show at the Forum on November 12, 1974. He played three shows over two days and no tape has surfaced for any of them. Not only is this the first tape to surface from the Los Angeles shows but is also the only professional soundboard recording from Harrison’s only US tour. The sound is a bit inconsistent from sounding muffled at the beginning of “Sue Me Sue You Blues” to clear and nicely balanced. It fades in at the beginning of “Hari’s On Tour (Express),” has a cut after “Cheparte,” and “Dispute And Violence,” and cuts out at 1:10 in “Tom Cat.”

WHAT’S DRIVING THE HONG KONG PROTESTS

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 8 October 2014 at

The Occupy Central protest in Hong Kong have got some quarters bothered by the role of US-sponsored, non-governmental organisations controlling the movement. David Lindorff, a Chinese-fluent journalist, assures that Hongkongers have had a long tradition of oppositional politics and are a mature polity aware of its rights and responsibilities.

A number of progressive and left-leaning writers in the US have jumped on a report by Wikileaks that the neo-con dominated National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and various other US-government linked organizations with a history of subversion and sowing discord abroad are operating in Hong Kong and, on that basis, are making the leap of “logic” that the democracy protests in Hong Kong must therefore be a creation of US policy-makers.

As a progressive, Chinese-fluent journalist who has spent years working in China and especially Hong Kong, and who has spent decades exposing the secret workings of US agencies and their network of fake NGOs in support of US empire, as well as their anti-democratic activities here in the US, I can understand why people might be suspicious, but I want to explain that Hong Kong is not Ukraine or even Venezuela or Brazil.

DIRE STRAITS – BASEL 1992

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at

DIRE STRAITS
European Tour 1992 [The Swingin' Pig TSP-CD-117-2, 2CD]
Live at St Jacob Stadium, Basel, Switserland; June 28, 1992. Excellent FM(?) broadcast.

Thanks to Freddiefifou for sharing this at Dime.

There is another version of this show that’s circulating as Ticket To Heaven. While both are very good soundboards, The Swingin’ Pig version has a slight edge.

kingmike at Dime commented: “Definitely more crisp than Ticket To Heaven, but both boots can’t really be cranked REALLY loud due to oversaturation (mastered too low or something).”

On Every Bootleg Site: “Taken from the original silver pressed bootleg “European tour 1992″. This is the best sounding Basel recording there is. Perfect sound and a great performance. This concert was both recorded for a television and radio broadcast. Complete concert.”

MIDLIFE CRISIS

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at

With sexy Uhm Jung-hwa headlining Kwon Chil-in’s Venus Talk (2014), a film about three women and their midlife crises, what it all boils down to is a bit of sex and some star gazing. Stephen Tan reviews.

Those who find their Kdramas on TV too coy and want something a bit more sexiting can seek out Kwon Chil-in’s Venus Talk (2014). Instead of young loves, the movie looks at three friends, already in their 40s, and their love lives, where everything on the surface is never what it seems.

Mi-yeon (Moon So-ri) appears happily married to Jae-ho but her need for sex is literally driving her husband crazy. On her part, Mi-yeon will happily dress up as a maid to “seduce” her husband only for Jae-ho to resort to viagra and other drugs in order to perform. And since their child is already studying overseas, Mi-yeon insists on having sex three times a week but for Jae-ho, some cuddling and conversation would have been preferable. But mostly, he tries to wriggle his way out of having sex with his wife.

FOREIGNER – ATLANTIC CITY 2014

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Monday 6 October 2014 at

FOREIGNER
Atlantic City 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at The Music Box, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Atlantic City, NJ; October 4, 2014. Very good audience recording.

When Foreigner played the Manchester Apollo in April 2014, David Randall reviewed:

Foreigner… ticked all the boxes and then some. After that initial alarm, with the absence of Mick Jones, they delivered what can only be described as a monumental performance. The band had already played ‘Waiting For A Girl Like You’ before the professorial presence of their leader, but when he did arrive – without a sedan chair, don’t be nasty – it all moved up a notch… [In Atlantic City, Jones joined the band from Track Six.]

GREGORY PORTER – HAMBURG 2012

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 5 October 2014 at

GREGORY PORTER
Hamburg 2012 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Kampnagel, Hamburg, Germany; October 26, 2012. Excellent FM broadcast.

The ’70s soul is still quite apparent in his voice, with shades of Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers, but he’s also the vocal heir to Nat King Cole… a major talent, not just as a singer but also as a composer, with a unique, elliptical style, both for melodies and lyrics… – Allmusic.com

Gregory Porter is a Grammy Award-winning American jazz vocalist, songwriter, and actor. Porter won the 2014 Grammy for best jazz vocal album, Liquid Spirit. Porter always wears a modified flat cap for public appearances. The reason for this is not entirely clear, but he has mentioned its role as a security blanket and refers to it as his “jazz hat.” In an interview with Jazzweekley.com conducted by George W. Harris on November 3, 2012, when asked “what’s with the ubiquitous hat?” Porter replied, “I’ve had some surgery on my skin, so this has been my look for a little while and will continue to be for awhile longer. People recognize me by it now. It is what it is.” – wikipedia

ANATOMY OF A FAKE TERROR THREAT TO JUSTIFY BOMBING SYRIA

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 5 October 2014 at

In the age of fast food and instant this-and-that, even terror threats can be rushed-released. All you need is a compliant mass media. By Glenn Greenwald and Murtaza Hussain.

As the Obama Administration prepared to bomb Syria without congressional or UN authorization, it faced two problems. The first was the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, a group that clearly posed no imminent threat to the “homeland.” A second was the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing campaign with no viable claim of self-defense or UN approval.

The solution to both problems was found in the wholesale concoction of a brand new terror threat that was branded “The Khorasan Group.” After spending weeks depicting ISIS as an unprecedented threat – too radical even for al-Qaeda! – administration officials suddenly began spoon-feeding their favorite media organizations and national security journalists tales of a secret group that was even scarier and more threatening than ISIS.

CSNY – DENVER 1970

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 4 October 2014 at

CSNY
Denver 1970 [JEMS Archive, 2CD]
Live at the Denver Coliseum, Denver, Colorado; May 12, 1970. Good to fairly/very good audience recording.

Here’s one for Job Hunter.

For some, the missing link between the CSNY 1969 tour and the 4 Way Street live album.

Thanks to JEMS, BK; and to mjk5510 for sharing the show at Dime.

Uploader’s notes:

The extant recording of this night is typical quality for an early 1970’s audie, ranging from a bit rough to pretty decent. There is a marked quality improvement in the acoustic set beginning with Crosby’s “Everybody’s Been Burned,” as if the taper raised the deck or mic creating a somewhat richer sound. That or Crosby was mic’d much better than Stills and Young…

That being said, it does seem like this is the closest to a verified source/lineage as we’re going to have for the show. Also lending credence to the provenance of these cassettes is the fact that the Denver ’69 tape is an upgrade to what’s in circulation and the Greek Theater ’69 recording, while not complete, does not have the cuts between songs found on the circulating copy, so all three of these appear to be upstream compared to what’s around.

Case in point, on this new transfer of May 12, 1970, “Wooden Ships” follows “Chicago,” but on the circulating version it appears prior to “Chicago.” There is no break on this source between the two songs so we believe it reflects the accurate set list for the show.

As is often the case with tapes this old, playback wasn’t easy. The tapes required re-shelling and multiple playback passes to get the full recording transferred without squeaks and distortion. The result is quite listenable and hopefully offers a modest upgrade to the best circulating version, yielding more of the original recording and less mastering artifacts.
