Ft Lauderdale 1977 [no label, 1CD]

Looney noted:

Here’s a short but sweet soundboard recording from the early days of AC/DC. While just over 41 mins, this recording does feature three extended jams including the infamous “Gonorrhea” version of “The Jack”.

“Charlie, Bring Me The Request Box” [Straight Arrow, 5CD]

Live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV; August 18-20, 1975. Fairly to very good audience stereo. (Disc 1 is a bit rough).

Given that the sound isn’t pristine (and in spite of all the efforts put into getting the best-sounding souce material), this set is really more for the hardcore fans and collectors.

Liberated five-CD set on the Straight Arrow label featuring audience recordings of every performance of Elvis’ aborted Summer Festival at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1975.

Thanks to Roy from BootlegCDR for sharing the discs at The Traders’ Den.

Roy noted:

These five recordings capture Elvis Presley in concert at a time of heartbreakingly-weak performances, poor health and episodes of increasingly strange behavior which were a result of Elvis’ favorite leisure activity: over-indulgence of prescription medication. Hindsight tells us Elvis should’ve been in drug rehabilitation. But his second favorite self-destructive habit (his lavish spending on vehicles, jewelry and aircraft) required a large, steady income. Bottom line: Elvis was spending himself broke and needed to work…

Behind the scenes, things were bad. En route to Las Vegas, Elvis suffered a breathing problem (panic attack?) that was documented in several biographies. Elvis made it through five shows over three days before cancelling the remainder and returning to Memphis.

Altamont Speedway 1969 [no label, 2CD]

Live at (Dick Carter’s) Altamont Speedway, Livermore, CA; December 6, 1969. Very good audience matrix.

Thanks to bigtyke66 for putting this together.

bigtyke66 noted in 2010:

One of the most storied recordings in Rolling Stones history. Apart from the obvious crowd problems (MJ: Well, there’ve been a few hang ups. But generally… you’ve been beautiful!), this was a pretty strong performance. The audience taping of the entire show must be – given the very difficult conditions – one of the most heroic recordings ever made.

Many versions of this recordings have circulated over the years, including the well-known bootleg The Killer Festival, Altamont 1969 (VGP-113). I think the best version of the audience tape currently available is the one gottogo99 posted at The Trader’s Den in December 2008…

The final recording does not sound as harsh as VGP 113; I prefer the balance and the overall sound. I think the blended tracks really add a new dimension to the recording. Others may prefer the unedited audience recording; but there you go–you don’t have to keep this one.

Thanks to the many people who helped out with trades, info, and who took the time to answer my emails. Thanks also to siege72 at Dime for invaluable help with speed/pitch corrections.

The counterculture was against the unconditional accumulation of wealth, the Vietnam War, social rights and a rainbow of issues. But by 1969, the fight was all but over. Today’s superstars are measured by Forbes annual ranking of the highest-earning musicians on the planet. By Ron Jacobs.

Every culture has its signature events. These events represent the best and the worst of that culture and its adherents. For example, many consider the first performances of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet Le Sacre du Printemps to be an insurrectionary moment in western culture that defined a new division between the old and the new as certainly as the European war which came hot on the heels of those performances. In what might be considered a more pedestrian field of endeavor – sports – the first season of African-American baseball players with the Brooklyn Dodgers ripped the racist myths of white professional baseball to shreds and, in doing so, marked in its own way a major surge forward in the struggle against the culture of racism in the United States.

Transmission Impossible [Eat To The Beat ETTB061, 3CD]

Disc 1: Live at The Spectrum, Montreal, Canada; August 17, 1984 (Early Show). Disc 2: Chicago Blues Festival, Chicago, IL; June 7,1985. Disc 3: The Fox Theatre, Atlanta, Georgia; December 31, 1986 (The complete New Year’s Eve show). Very good FM broadcasts.

Sleeve notes:

This three-CD collection features a triumvirate of live Stevie Ray shows, all taken from FM broadcasts, performed throughout the period when his star was shining brightest.

The first of these, on DISC ONE of this set, is the early show played at the Spectrum in Montreal, Canada, on August 17, 1984, a few months following the release of his second album, Couldn’t Stand The Weather, and thus featuring a number of cuts from that record, but mixing it up too with earlier songs and covers. It should be noted this is a completely different show to that now featured on the Deluxe Edition of Couldn’t Stand the Weather, which is the late set, albeit performed on the same day.

The second show, on DISC TWO, is Stevie s complete set played at the Chicago Blues Festival on June 7, 1985, when Soul To Soul was all but in the can awaiting release in September of that year. The set list this time however only features a couple of tracks from this forthcoming album, and the selection played is more varied, not unusual when performing in front of a festival crowd.

On DISC THREE, perhaps the most interesting of all, features Stevie’s complete New Year’s Eve show 1986, performed at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, shortly after he d completed rehab and was back in defiant mood and making the party go with a swing. Joined for a couple of cuts by fellow guitar legend Lonnie Mack, this gig is often acclaimed as one of Vaughan’s best ever.

Chicago 2002 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the House Of Blues, Chicago, IL; April 16, 2002. Broadcast on August 28, 2016. Very good FM broadcast. Complete broadcast, incomplete show.

Back in 2002 (when she was relatively starting out), here is one instance of how Norah Jones endeared herself to her fans and listeners.

Barry Brecheisen, (2002):

“I’m just sitting here waiting for you to come home and turn me on”, Norah Jones vocalized to the House of Blues crowd during a beautiful Tuesday night in Chicago. Opening with her own bluesy version of JD Loudermilk’s “Turn Me On,” she did just that.

It’s hard not to be smitten by the curvy 23 year old pianist with her flowing charcoal hair and almond shaped eyes that you could fall into for days. Bathed in red and blue light, Nora proved to the crowd that she is every bit deserving of the buzz that has surrounded her since the CD, Come Away With Me, was released earlier this year. Dressed all in black, Nora sat at a Steinway piano seducing the crowd one song at a time with her own mixture of jazz, country and pop tunes. Sounds like an odd combination, but she pulls it off beautifully with a little help by her three-piece band. It seems like she was destined to play music when you learn she is the offspring of none other than the legendary sitarist, Ravi Shankar.

Swingin’ Auditorium [Seymour Records, 1CD]

Live at the Swing Auditorium, San Bernardino, CA; February 19, 1971. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to genkigen for sharing the show at Dime.

genkigen noted:

This is the opening show for Fleetwood Mac. This is the complete recording at Swing Auditorium 1971. The source is digital remastered from first generation reel tape.

taperpat noted at Dime:

Last track (Wine) not from the Swing Auditorium but from Eagles Ballroom in Seattle. I added it as filler to an early transfer and it has followed around the San Bernadino set for years. Transfer not from master reel but probably MSR > R > R with maybe one less R. Bruce Harvie has postulated that Don Carey may be original taper.

Mike Bloomfield’s life is chronicled in Ed Ward’s revised and expanded Michael Bloomfield: The Rise and Fall of An American Guitar Hero (2016). Peter Stone Brown reviews the book that was first published in 1983.

Mike Bloomfield burst upon the music scene in a major way in 1965, first on Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited and a short time later on the debut of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Actually, I first heard him earlier in the year playing piano on John Hammond’s So Many Roads recorded the year before, where upon hearing Robbie Robertson, he offered to play piano and would later find out he was also on a few Delmark and Takoma blues albums playing behind various country blues singers such as Sleepy John Estes.

To say the Bloomfield’s guitar playing redefined the role of guitar in blues and eventually in rock is not an overstatement.

Guys And Dolls OST [no label, 1CD]

Reconstructed soundtrack. Very good audio.

Thanks to DOC for the efforts and for sharing the reconstructed soundtrack on the net.

DOC noted:

As far as I am aware there has never been a complete “official” release of the 1955 movie soundtrack of Guys And Dolls. This has been an incredible frustration to most musical lovers as both the movie and score are superb.

This share is my personal stereo CD copy – it is by nature a hybrid. It has the 14 tracks from the Golden Stars CSS 5416 CD and has the missing four tracks re-engineered and restored in the correct sequence. I have used the 14 commerical tracks as the reference point. Adjusting the levels and mix of the four additional tracks and doing a little repair to some of the source tracks was extremely time consuming, but I feel it worked as well as could have been expected – after all this was a labour of love.

This share is for all musical lovers in HQS and especially in tribute to our great HQS friends and fellow Guys And Dolls fan, amigos Jegar and ROB42.
