  • 05/01/16--14:35: Rory Gallagher Part 1
  • Another multi-post epic, this time from Rory Gallagher, who I always liked a great deal. If you don't know,
    he was an Irish blues/rock shouter/guitarist, many think of him as somewhat generic, myself I don't see it....he was what he was. Saw him live once, and he was a dynamic stage performer, and his studio albums always had at least a few slammers on them (check "Laundromat", may favorite, which appeared on the "What Is Heavy Metal" project a little while back).

    Well, first of all, we will start with his numerous studio efforts....he started out in the band Taste in the mid-60's, I've got a comp of some of their stuff, I'll get to that at the end of this, because it is as a "solo" performer (he kept a lot of his backup band around for quite a while) that he made his name.

    The 1971 self-titled debut is a good one, power trio format, and leads off with the crackling "Laundromat". There are also any number of other pretty good blues pounders here, "Hands Up" and "I Can't Believe It's You" for example. The CD release (the one i have) features covers of Muddy Waters and otis Rush, both worth a listen.

    The same year saw the release of "Deuce", nearly as good if not better....highlighted by the great "Used to Be", there is a lot of good stuff going on here as he attmpted to diversify his sound a bit. "In Your Town" and "Crest of a Wave" standout, but this a very solid effort as well.

    "Blueprint" (1973) came next, adding keyboards to the sound. Longer tracks, such as "Walk on Hot Coals" and "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son", again show growth and diversity. It's a good one as well...."Tattoo" was released the same year and damned if it isn't a hell of a disc as well, with the fantastic "Cradle Rock" as well as "Tattoo'd Lady" and "Who's That Coming".

    We'll wrap up the first batch of his studio efforts with 1975's "Against the Grain", which, in my opinion made him 5-5 in albums that rank at least, say, 3.5 stars.....it's another good effort. "Let Me In" and "Cross Me Off Your List" are nearly as good as anything on the earlier albums , and there is a fine updating of Leadbelly's "Out On the Western Plain".

    He released a ton of stuff in his lifetime, never reaching the status of a "big star", but always having a
    dedicated following. If the studio albums don't get it done for you, check back when we get to the live stuff, as I said he was a hell of an energetic live performer.

    Who knows when Part 2 will come around, maybe tomorrow, maybe a week from now, just can't tell you. Depends on my mood.

    A slamming hard rocking slab from a UK band with which I was unfamiliar.....this is a best-of comp entitled "Riff After Motherfucking Riff" and the title, as Jonder says, says it all.....this kicks serious ass, I wish I was tuned into this band years ago. Every track here is brutally rocking, please don't miss it.

  • 05/02/16--10:58: Crow
  • The 1969 debut from Minneapolis blues-rockers Crow. Crow were singer Dick Wagner, guitarist Dick Wiegland, keyboardist kink Middlemist (!), bassiat Larry Wiegland, and drummer Denny Craswell.  They had a fairly succcesful single, "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)", which would later be covered by Black Sabbath.

    They had a couple of followup albums, which I don't have and haven't heard, and also reformed in the early 80's, which I certainly don't wish to hear. However, the debut IS something of a blues/psych classic of the era, one that fans of that genre should hear.

    Warning: my CD was created from FLAC files, thus that is how I am uploading them....how I get them is how YOU get them.

    CROW MUSIC-01 Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)/02 White Eyes/03 Thoughts/04 Da Da Song/05 Busy Day/06 Time to Make A Turn/07 Rollin'/08 Listen to the Bop (Dedicated to Chuck Berry)/09 Gonna Leave a Mark/10 Sleepy Woman

    Good one, as you know my fondness for the hard psych of the 1968-7 era.

    The final installment of the Elvis-extravaganza, focusing again on another stack o' concert boots, all of them
    worth a listen......I think this series has been a pretty fair one, thanks to John N for providing the deluxe editions of the albums I didn't have.

    We resume a few days after where we left off yesterday, again from the Dominion Theater, 12/23/78, with Martin Belmont...."Armed Forces" material comprises a good bit of the set, the notable inclusion this time is "I Stand Accused", which I think is the only version that I have.

    Next is the (1978, unsure of the date) "Live at the El Mocambo"....a good performance, nothing out of the ordinary to note, but, as always, worthwhile and worth hearing. (A pretty common find, really)

    Leading off 1979 is a King Biscuit Flower Hour broadcast, from Glasgow Scotland. "Don't Look Back" and "Little Sister" are not frequently performed, and the set ends with a good version of "Girls Talk"...also from 1979 is "Live at Hollywood High", a well known effort that also contains nothing unusual....an EP of a few of these tracks was given away with (at least with MY) vinyl copy of "Armed Forces", nice to have the whole show.

    From 6/4/79 is the Pinkpop Festival from Geleen Holland....I think "So Young" is a fairly rare addition, as are "We Can Talk" and "High Fidelity".....I guess a bit of "Get Happy" material had begun to enter the setlist, which is where I get off board.

    And lastly, this is interesting, someone took the time to create a "live version" of "Armed Forces", taking live
    recordings from various locales/dates (1978-83) and sequencing them in the same order as those on the original album. Quite an effort, I've had this forever and don't remember where I got it from, so I'm unable to credit the creator.

    Anyway, hope this is enough Costello for ya.....if ya have anything else ya wish me to post, please by all means send it to me.

  • 05/03/16--14:08: Rory Gallagher Part 2
  • In 1976, Gallagher released "Calling Card", attempting to gain a diversity of sound.....personally I think it's
    pretty fair, the songs regain Rory's hard rock edge, which is what matters.....after this one, though, Gallagher would return to the tried-and-true power trio format. '"Do You Read Me" and the title track stand out on this one.

    On "Photo Finish", as stated above, the return is To power trio type sounds, such as the slammin'"Shin Kicker" and "Last of the Independents"....this album took 2 years to record, due to some unfortunate circumstances, look the up, a fairly interesting story, just not interesting enough for me to rehash here.

    1979's "Top Priority  is a great hard rocking effort, as well, again in the power trio format and again foregoing the ballad attempts and the like........as always there are at least a couple of raise the roof rockers, such as "Philby" and "Off the Handle".

    He changed labels, again, for "Jinx", it's not a real standout, if you're a fan, of course, you'll wish to hear this, certainly "Jinxed" and "Bourbon" fulfill the tradition....

    Well, next comes "Defender".....by now, the studio efforts REALLY
    DO start to blur together somewhat, if you like his stuff, it really doesn't make a sharp right to suckville, but there is a sameness among the discs...."Defender" re-introduces some keyboards back to the sound, and most of side one is worth a listen.

    Gallagher knew his formula and ran with it.....as I said when we get to his live efforts, his high energy performances will really shine through, but here is another batch of studio releases for your perusal.

  • 05/05/16--12:55: The Doors (Part 6 of MANY)
  • Continuing on to give you the best Doors overview (maybe) ever created, as we left you last we were in the
    midst of a slew of a bunch of live albums......got a few more for you today, see what you think of them.First up is a 1969 broadcast for PBS television, really sounds great, this is one I'd recommend. "Wishful Sinful" is not perform that often.,,,a pretty decent interview follows the set.

    Next up is an album called "Missing Links" 2/25/69 Live at Sunset Hollywood CA....good sound, and what is interesting here is there are really no Doors songs, they experiment with other stuff....a curiosity and a good one.

    Next disc is from same date, same venue, and again, is devoid of traditional "Doors" songs......I have to say, these are two of my favorites thus far in this set......they are unique and rarely heard.....I recommend these, at least over another muddled version of "Light My Fire" (and we WILL have more of those!)

    Gonna close out the 1969 shows (for now, there are more to come) with a show (9/13/69) at Toronto...this is a short set with good-to-fair sound, nothing terribly unusual in the set list. If you are trying to build a "complete Doors" file, you'll want it, if not, well.......

  • 05/05/16--13:31: Mars Red Sky
  • Thanks to John N, I have recieved another batch of some excellent desert/stoner/psych from France, this
    time in the person of Mars Red Sky....I was somewhat familiar with them, but ever so much now with this batch of stuff!

    First up is a bunch of various singles/EP tracks, all worth a listen......they appear at the end of the links, one of particular notice is a split single with Year of No Light...

    Their Self-titled debut was issued in 2011, it's a find blend of fuzz, riffing and vocals which might remmind one of Tame Impala,

    The 2014 issue, "Stranded in Arcadia" is a fine piece of way-out desert-surf music, they turn up the fuzz quite a bit, check the mind melting opener, "The Light Beyond"......this is one of those "future classics" of stoner rock that I refer to at times, you'll want to hear this one.

    Finally, their new release," Apex III: Praise From the Burning Sky" has a more melodic, progressive sound, as the band continues to develop and grow. This one is a winner too, in particular the title track

    MARS RED SKY-01 Strong Reflection/02 Curse/03 Falls/04 Way to Rome/05 Saddle Point/06 Marble Sky/07 Up the Stairs

  • 05/06/16--07:16: The Star Spangles
  • Not that I ever knew a whole lot about these boys, but I will tell you that the "Bazooka!" album is a real fin-
    scaler, some good glam/punk hard rock no roll. Comprised of vocalist Ian Wilson, guitarist Tommy Volume, bassist Nick Price, and drummer Joey Valentine, these guys cranked out the absolute  JAMS in the early 00's, This gem ("Bazooka!") came around in 2003, I guess there was a follow up I didn't hear, but this here thing rocks hard. Not a lot to say about it, underappreciated, for certain, and a great melding of punk/glam....check this it is WAY worth your time.

  • Thinking I've never posted this one either, and a shame that would be, more good early 1970's hard psych rock, this time outta Los Angeles.....this was kind of a rarity at one time, originally pressed as a one-sided acetate record thus the short length......like I've said many times, the hard psych of that era was criminally underappreciated at the time, this brief album proves as much. There are but six tracks here, plenty of fuzz guitar and druggy lyrics.....standouts to me are "Stay high, Fly Away Is Still OK" and "Double Darea", but all 6 have their charms.....you can breeze through this in no time, but please don't deprive yourself of this one.

  • 05/06/16--08:32: Rory Gallagher Part 3
  • "Defender" closed up part 2 of this series, Gallagher would release one more studio album "Fresh Evidence"
    before his death due to liver problems. Of all his studio work, I probably enjoy this one the least, there is a lot going on here, and it really doesn't come together, at least for me.....but taken as a whole, his studio output was very, very good, and now we will take a look at some of his live efforts and some comps, etc....

    After his passing, the first release would be the 2 disc "BBC Sessions", composed of live recordings culled together from various points in his career....great to hear some of the studio stuff given longer, more relaxed versions, such as "Calling Card" and "Daughter of the Everglades". This set is a winner.

    "Live in Europe" is a release from early in his career, and it rocks from the word go.....lots of arrangements of traditional blues numbers, and of course, the great "Laundromat". This was quite a release in 1972 or whenever, still sounds quite good today.

    One more for today, there will be another part to this series still to come....originally released as a double LP set was "Irish Tour '74", and was years later released as a six disc box set. All I have is the regular old CD issue, I'm afraid, that will have to suit ya.....storming versions of "Cradle Rock" and (especially) "Walk on Hot Coals".......

    He was a dynamic live performer, as I said before, and these sets bear that out. Check in a few days for the rest of his stuff that I have.

    (Scott) BTW, don't forget that posting will become less frequent next week as I return to work....don't
    worry, I'll get to everything, you just may have to wait a day or two.....and I still plan on at least 4 posts a week, PLUS submissions....

    So, Jon S, Whom has already provided us with many great Elvis Costello and PJ Harvey boots this week, now turns his attention to one of MY faves Radiohead.....his writeup is as good as anything I could do, so, I turn this one over to my new friend Jon S, with the encouragement to KEEP IT UP, I LOVE guest submissions more than ANYTHING!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With the release of another song and video today, and with a new album coming on Sunday, it seems like a good time for a couple of essential and rare Radiohead boots.

    The first is from October 6, 2003 in Atlanta. This is the only Radiohead show I ever got to see. Its always great to find a recording of a concert you attended. Thom Yorke's birthday was the next day so there is some nice interaction with the crowd. The band was fully engaged; this is one of the best shows I've ever seen. A radio broadcast so the recording is nearly perfect.

    01 The Gloaming/02 There There/03 2+2=5/04 Where I End And You Begin/05 Exit Music/06 Morning Bell/07 Myxomatosis/08 Paranoid Android/09 In Limbo/10 Sail To The Moon/11 Creep/12 Scatterbrain/13 Go To Sleep/14 I Might Be Wrong/15 Idioteque/16 You And Whose Army/17 Sit Down, Stand Up/18 No Surprises/19 The National Anthem/20 A Wolf At The Door/21 Fake Plastic Trees/22 Airbag/23 Everything In Its Right Place



    If I could have only one bootleg out of all that I have (and, its a lot) this is the one. Radiohead playing in Berlin on September 11, 2001. It is the only artifact that I know of that truly captures some of the real fear, anger, and horror as it was experienced on that day. They play for around an hour before saying anything. Before starting Paranoid Android, Thom finally said: "So, who here doesn't know about it? You don't know about the airplanes in America?" The facts were incomplete and unknown as events had happened only a couple of hours before the show. And, no one knew what would happen in the hours, days and weeks to come. If you look at the setlist, you can see that the songs were especially haunting and resonant. An excellent recording I usually listen to every year on 9/11. I never see this available on the internet.

    01 The National Anthem/02 Hunting Bears/03 Morning Bell/04 My Iron Lung/05 Karma Police/06 Permanent Daylight/07 Climbing Up The Walls/08 No Surprises/09 Dollars And Cents/10 Airbag/11 Packt Like Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box/12 Fake Plastic Trees/13 I Might Be Wrong/14 Pyramid Song/15 Paranoid Android/16 Idioteque/17 Everything In Its Right Place/18 Like Spinning Plates/19 Lucky/20 You And Whose Army/21 How To Disappear Completely/22 Talk Show Host/23 Street Spirit (Fade Out)

    in two parts:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WOW, September 11, 2001......remember well I was supposed to see Tool that night, of course it was cancelled....I think I may have the Atlanta show (uncertain), but the Berlin one is new to me, and also significant due to, of course, the date. Thanks Jon S and PLEEEEASE keep up the stellar work!

    Some weeks back I posted Black Mountain's "IV" album, which is spectacular......as you know it is not NORMALLY my policy to post new releases, but I LOVE Black Mountain so much, and their new disc is so fab (top-10 end of year list for certain), that I wanted as many ears to hear it as possible......well, John N (who sent me the original), now sends me a cool demos disc from the same album......haven't listened yet, but you can bet I will, Black Mountain is one of my very favorite of current bands. Check this out, I'm certain it's a rarity if nothing else!

    01 Mothers of the Sun (demo)/02 Florian Saucer Attack (demo)/03 Line Them All Up (demo)/04 Cemetery Breeding (demo)/05 Crucify Me (demo)

    This is a top notch submission, I hope you agree......I LOVE my guest contributors, and stuff like this is what makes it ALL worth while! Thanks once again John N!

  • 05/06/16--14:41: The Doors Part 7 (Of MANY)
  • Heck yeah, it's THAT time again, time to drag out some more of this gigantic Doors torrent.....you'll love it
    or hate it, but here's your chance to GET it....

    A few selections from 1970 today, lets dive right in....first and probably least is a double set from Honolulu 4/18/70.....sound quality is fair-to-poor, there are a few curiosities in the set ("People Get Ready", "Away In India", "Crossroads", "Baby Please Don't Go"...I wouldn't PAY too much for this one, but maybe if I could DL it......well, who knows?

    Much better sound quality appears on the 8/29/70 Isle of Wight Festival......a short set with no real surprises, still a fine performance, with a great ending version of "The End"

    Next up we have 12/8/70 Jim Morrison's birthday....he reads a bunch of poetry over some backing music, if you want it, here is the place to get it.

    Finally, we have the commercially released "Absolutely Live", which was only a fair recording at the time of release.....it does contain a good "Who Do You Love", and the infamous "Celebration of the Lizard"....not bad, not great, essential if you "want it all"..

    I'm gonna wrap it here, a little bit of old Jimbo can go a long long way......anyway, look out for Part 8, sometime soon.

    Some bands don't like their stuff shared, I'm aware of this.....this is one of them. Here are hints: The other day, I posted a bootleg show of theirs that occured on 9/11/01 (VERY recently, if I was thinking I'd have hidden this in that post)....anyway, this band has a new single, and that in and of itself is kind of a big deal.


    Here it is with no mention of the band, maybe soon you may hear it on the radio. Heads up.

  • 05/08/16--14:08: Kenny and the Kasuals
  • Here are a couple of mid 60's gems from Kenny & the Kasuals, best known, of course, for their stunning "Journey to Tyme"....the two albums presented here, "Teen Dreams" and "Nothing Better to Do", while little information exists on them (other than the obvious: they were part of the burgeoning Texas garage/psych scene in the mid 60's), do present a few good ones......definitely worth a listen, if just for "Journey to Tyme", but you'll find other goodies here if you search for em. A couple tracks appear on both discs, sorry, nothing I can do about that one, but these are solid lesser know 60's garage rock, highly recommended.

    (Note: both albums are combined on one disc/file)

    TEEN DREAM-01 See Saw Ride/02 Strings of Time/03 Things Get Better/04 As I Know/05 Everything Seems Fine/06 Some Time Now/07 Revelations/08 Raindrops to Teardrops/09 I'm Gonna Make It/10 And There You Were/11 Come on Kid/12 Can't Keep From Crying/13 Who Stole My House/14 Journey to Tyme/NOTHING BETTER TO DO-15 Nothing Better to Do/16 Floating/17 Don't Let Your Baby Go/18 The Best Thing Around/19 It's Alright/20 You make Me Feel So Good/21 Strings of Time/22 Raindrops to teardrops/23 Journey to Tyme/24 I'm Gonna make It/25 See Saw Ride/26 As I Know/27 Chimes on 42nd Street/28 When Was then

  • 05/08/16--14:19: Lonely Camel
  • From Oslo Norway comes a solid slab of good stoner rock.....these guys have released 4 albums, this is the only one I've ever been able to locate  (it's thier first) from 2008.....I'd appreciate any help that anyone can give me to hear the rest of them.

    Lonely Camel were singer/guitarist Tomas Brenna, drummer Espen Nesset, guitarist Lukas Paulson, and bassist Stian Helle....what I like about this album is it harkens back to that sound of the bluesy-psych rock of the 1968-72 period that I talk about so much, but it really does.."Don't Piss on the Lizard" and "Spacerider" stand out, but you'll want to hear this whole thing.....a good album, sure would like to hear the rest of em.

    01 In My Lane/02 I'm Your God/03 Dark Lord/04 Don't Piss On the Lizzard/05 Madras/06 Damn You're Hot/07 Spacerider/08 Black Suits and Guns/09 Shake It With the Devil/10 Blindfolded
