Event Number 8 [Madison CWP 03, 1CD]
Live at the Houston Astrodome, Houston, Texas; March 3, 1974 (early show). Very good soundboard.


This show is unusual because Joe Guercio’s orchestra wasn’t there, it’s only Elvis, his rhythm band and his back-up singers… This soundboard recording has a warm feeling of a very small venue since you cannot hear the crowd too much (they were quite far from the stage). You’ll certainly understand what I mean while listening to “Help Me” which sounds almost like an undubbed studio version. You can also feel James Burton, Ronnie Tutt and the other members giving little extras for making it a fuller sound. Most of the performances are excellent but some of the highlights would be Trying To Get To You, Johnny B Goode, I Can’t Stop Loving You, Help Me and Let Me Be There… All in all a very good show from a very good tour.

Thanks to aliasrobert and jeroep for keeping the show alive on the net.

Joel Williamson’s Elvis biography, Elvis Presley: A Southern Life, places the singer’s life and career in the context of his upbringing as a working class white youth in the US South. Review by Ron Jacobs.

I never considered myself a big Elvis Presley fan. My primary connection to him was that I was born the same year he took the rock and roll world by a storm via his first couple of singles released by Sam Phillips’s Sun Records. I liked many of his rock tunes as a kid and even bought the singles “In the Ghetto” and “Suspicious Minds” when they came out in the late 1960s. Despite my lackluster appreciation of the man, I can recall exactly what I was doing when I heard he had died.

Historian, professor and author Joel Williamson begins his newly released biography of the King with a detailed description of Presley’s death. The book, titled Elvis Presley: A Southern Life, is richly detailed and covers the entirety of Elvis’s short and largely-lived life.

Nagoya 2014 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Shimin Kaika Chu Hall, Nagoya, Japan; December 4, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording.

In January 2014, Rolling Stone reported:

Art Garfunkel is returning to the stage this year, four years after suffering vocal cord paresis that forced the cancellation of Simon and Garfunkel’s summer tour. After playing a series of under-the-radar shows in late 2013, he’s booked a four-week American theater tour kicking off January 29 in Franklin, Tennessee.

“The voice is back,” Garfunkel said in a statement. “I’m in flight again. I believe I have grown through adversity.  A new creation has emerged that is truly exciting me – my stage show.” In November of 2010, Garfunkel told Rolling Stone that his recovery from vocal cord paresis was very gradual. “In my bones I feel healthy,” he said. “I know it’s coming back. I just have to be patient.

Thanks to Izumiblue, who recorded the show; and to rh953015 for sharing it at The Traders’ Den.

Interstellar (2014) is a hodgepodge of influences that Christopher Nolan stuffs into an all-inclusive science-fiction extravaganza that’s almost three hours long. He also hits his target with admirable precision, says Critic After Dark Noel Vera.

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (2014) starts out very Grapes of Wrath and ends up a little Book of Genesis. Along the way you see the influence of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (of course); design bits from Alien and Star Wars; story details from (though I don’t see Nolan ever confirming this) Marooned, Brian De Palma’s Mission to Mars and (guessing he’d rather die than admit it) Field of Dreams; imagery from The Right Stuff and (this Nolan does admit – it’s a much tonier source) Tarkovsky’s The Mirror.

Give him credit for doing two things right: the science is mostly accurate, thanks to executive producer/theoretical physicist Kip Thorne; and the effects are impressively rendered.

Stockholm 1967 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Grona Lund, Stockholm, Sweden; August 31, 1967. Fairly to very good audience recording (especially given its age).

Thanks to davmar77 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

davmar77 noted:

This is about the earliest circulating recording of Procol. It took place in Stockholm in late summer of 1967. I had this up a long time ago. I think although this transfer was done a couple of years back by request when i discovered I had not kept my original flac files. I don’t often re-transfer my recordings since I figure someone must have them but as this was pretty short I felt it was easy enough to do. Considering the age of the recording, the quality is actually quite good.

Westbury, NY 2014 [Mr Railing , 2CD]
Live at the NYCB Theater, Westbury, NY; April 26, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording. Slight echo.

Here’s one for old time’s sake…

Thanks to Mr Railing who recorded the show; and to seaweed1010 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Mr Railing noted:

I was a couple rows behind the orchestra pit and lit up clear as day. Frankie’s musical director and band leader for the last 25 years was just a few rows in front of us and angled directly at me. He had no choice but to check out my mics. He is so close you can hear him count off unmiked the beginning of some songs. The keyboard and drums were off to my right, both also angled at me. It was awkward so I stopped making eye contact. It wasn’t until the ride home that my wife admitted one of the Four Seasons (all 30-year-old guys at this point) had eyes for her and kept checking her out all night! So while Frankie and the band watched me, making me forgo eye contact, a Four Season was scoping out my wife! Sneaky, sneaky move! A new unexpected peril to taping!

Hollywood 2014 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Amoeba Music, Hollywood, CA; March 9, 2014. Very good audience recording.

“Rediscovered after 44 years in the wilderness”… Here’s someone a little off the beaten path… and really never expected to see the show surfacing.

Linda Perhacs is an American psychedelic folk singer, who released her first album Parallelograms in 1970 to scant notice or sales. The album was rediscovered by record enthusiasts and grew in popularity with the rise of the New Weird America movement and the Internet. In December 2013, Asthmatic Kitty Records announced the March 2014 release of Perhacs’ second record The Soul of All Natural Things. The album was recorded in 2012 and 2013, making it about 43 years between her debut and follow-up album.

Down By The Stupid Beat [Back To Zero BTZ 021, 1CD]
Live at Bogarts, Birmingham, UK; September 16, 1974 – fairly good audience recording; a bit trebly. University of London, UK; February 7, 1975 – very good soundboard.

Dr Feelgood are a British pub rock band formed in 1971. Hailing from Canvey Island, Essex, they are best known for early singles like “Back In The Night” and “Roxette”. The group’s original distinctively British R&B sound was centred on Wilko Johnson’s choppy guitar style. Along with Johnson, the original band line-up included singer Lee Brilleaux and the rhythm section of John B Sparks, known as “Sparko”, on bass guitar and John Martin, known as “The Big Figure”, on drums. Although their most commercially productive years were the early to mid-1970s, and in spite of Brilleaux’s death in 1994 of lymphoma, a version of the band (featuring none of the original members) continues to tour and record to this day. – wikipedia

Italy 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Teatro Creberg, Bergamo, Italy; December 1, 2014. Fairly good audience recording.

First show of the Patti Smith and family acoustic tour – and a run-up to Smith’s December 13 gig at the Vatican. In November, it was reported that Pope Francis had invited Smith to perform at the Vatican’s annual Christmas concert. The event, known as the Concerto di Natale, will take place Dec. 13 at Auditorium Conciliazione and will be televised live on Italian television. Sharing the stage will be Italy’s singing nun, Sister Cristina Scuccia, the winner of this year’s edition of the Italian TV version of The Voice. Smith had also performed at the Vatican last Christmas and had briefly shook hands with Pope Francis when she visited St Peter’s Square in April, 2013.

And, as the Huffington Post noted, Patti Smith’s O Holy Night is the only carol you need!

Thanks to romeo for recording the show; and to appleberry for sharing the tracks at Dime.
