ISAAC HAYES
Stuttgart 1997 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Jazz Open, Stuttgart, Germany; July 27, 1997. Very good soundboard.

Soundboard Isaac Hayes don’t easily come by. Given Hayes’ brand of slowburning love ballads, you either dig the man and his music or you don’t. His Bacharach covers are legendary and his Theme From Shaft remains a classic.

Thanks to Jerryc for sharing the show at Dime.

EDGAR FROESE R.I.P. 1944-2015

German artist and electronic music pioneer Edgar Froese, best known for founding the electronic music group Tangerine Dream, died on January 20 in Vienna of a plumonary embolism. He was 70. Among his works, in 1975, Froese released Epsilon In Malaysian Pale, a Mellotron-based piece inspired by a visit to a Malaysian jungle. Just before his death, Froese completed work on his 500-page autobiography, Tangerine Dream - Force Majeure - 1967 - 2014. Tangerine Dream’s website posted: “The sadness in our hearts is immense. Edgar once said: ‘There is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address.’ Edgar, this is a little comfort to us.”

TANGERINE DREAM
Warsaw 1997 [Tangerine Tree, Volume 20, 1CD]

Live at the Sala Kongresowa Warsaw, Poland; June 13, 1997. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to everyone involved; and to tadreamer62 for sharing the show at Dime.

Tangerine Dream’s gig in June 1997 was the last concert of their European tour in spring 1997. The first set of that show (the so-called ‘Vintage Set’, consisting of older compositions for the most part) was broadcast by the Polish FM radio. A remastered version of excellent quality of this broadcast can be heard on Tangerine Tree Volume 20: Warsaw 1997. The track list is slightly different to the set that was recorded during the London concert in November 1997 and released officially as Valentine Wheels. Thus, the Warsaw record is a nice counterpart to the album, Tournado, which features the second set (the ‘Modern Set’) of the tour, as recorded in Zabrze in April 1997. - voices-in-the-net.de

JOHN DAVID SOUTHER
West Hollywood 1976 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Troubadour Nightclub, West Hollywood, CA; April 8, 1976. Fairly to very good KWST-FM broadcast.

Singer-songwriter JD Souther is probably best known for his well-honed writing abilities, especially in the field of country rock. He co-wrote some of the biggest hits for the Eagles, including Best Of My Love, Victim Of Love, Heartache Tonight, and New Kid in Town. He wrote Run Like A Thief, which appeared on Home Plate by Bonnie Raitt in 1975. Souther dated Linda Ronstadt briefly, co-produced her Don’t Cry Now album, and wrote songs for several of her multi-platinum albums. - wikipedia

This concert takes place after the demise of the Souther Hillman Furay Band in 1975 with the excellent and final Trouble In Paradise. So the songs all predate You’re Only Lonely, his biggest hit. What’s on offer are songs he wrote but made popular by others. Don’t Cry Now, Faithless Love, Silver Blue, Simple Man, Simple Dream were all on Linda Ronstadt albums and Jesus In 3/4 Time was an album track for Jackson Browne.

Thanks to flyingm for sharing the show at Dime.

flyingm noted: “A bit of early LA folk-rock history. Very nice stereo radio broadcast. Starts off acoustic and goes electric during Simple Man, Simple Dream. This tape was played back in the day and there is some moderate wear but nothing drastic.”

MARIANNE FAITHFULL
Munich 2014/New Orleans 1990 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Circus Krone, Munich, Germany; November 15, 2014. Live at Tipitina’s, New Orleans, LA; April 9, 1990. Very good FM broadcasts.

In 2014, Marianne Faithfull (who is 68 this year) released her 20th solo album, Give My Love To London. On stage, the delivery may not be as smooth as before but she still has a commanding presence. And those with sensitive ears might even want to avoid the New Orleans show below.

Kris Needs, recordcollectormag.com:

When she undertakes her world tour to mark 50 years since the release of her first single, As Tears Go By, Marianne Faithfull will enjoy the rare luxury of choosing her setlist from a catalogue whose later works eclipse the early stuff. After the intimate reflections of 2011’s Horses And High Heels, her latest [Give My Love To London] long-player revisits the soul-baring maelstrom of 2005’s Before The Poison and is again assisted musically by Nick Cave, plus violinist Warren Ellis and drummer Jim Sclavunos. As such, crashing Bad Seeds drama explodes on tracks such as the tumultuous anti-war Mother Wolf.

Faithfull’s lyrics are also illustrated by music from Anna Calvi, Roger Waters, Pat Leonard, Tom McRae and Steve Earle, and performed by Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley, keyboardist Ed Harcourt, drummer Rob Ellis and bassist Dimitri Tikovoi (the latter pair produce). The result is a vibrant wall of sound veering between the fierce and hauntingly sensitive. Sparrows Will Sing sounds like Phil Spector producing The Velvet Underground, but the ballads bring out Faithfull’s most heart-wringing performances, including the desolate Love More Or Less, semi-spoken Going Home and poignant I Get Along Without You Very Well. The latter may not be said of her fans, who will savour this late-period triumph.

DEE ALEXANDER’S EVOLUTION ARKESTRA FUNKIN’ WITH ELECTRIC SOUL
Jimi Hendrix/James Brown Tribute 2012 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the South Shore Cultural Center, Chicago, Illinois; December 7, 2012. Very good FM broadcast.

It started as a bongo beat - a nod to James Brown, just after his death in late 2006. Then came a few signature riffs. And an ecstatic response from the crowd. Before long, the Godfather of Soul was permanently embedded in the Evolution Ensemble’s repertoire. For leader Dee Alexander, a powerful and versatile vocalist, it was all part of the same continuum - as was the music of Jimi Hendrix, whose music carried the same revolutionary weight. Commissioned by the Jazz Institute of Chicago, Alexander and the expanded Evolution Arkestra sing the body electric in a free program on the city’s south side. - npr.org

Even at Dee Alexander’s most incendiary - for example, the lioness-like scream she unleashes at the culmination of her version of Nina Simone’s Four Women - she conveys an emotional warmth, even an intimacy, and that makes plain her dedication to both the songs and their creators. - downbeat

Dee Alexander is one of Chicago’s most gifted and respected female vocalist/songwriters. Her performances span virtually every music genre related to the African diaspora: gospel, blues, neo-soul, rhythm-and-blues, and world music. But her true heart belongs to jazz, the one idiom that can encompass all her influences. From a sultry ballad to a contemporary funk groove, high-flying swing to a romping scat solo, Alexander delivers every note with a passion and grace that leave her listeners limp. - deealexander.net

VAN MORRISON
You’re Not A Rented Audience, Are You? [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, CA; April 21, 1992.
Very good audience recording.

In 1991, Van Morrison released his 21st studio album, Hymns To The Silence. And when he gets into the groove, there is no letting go. The performance is top notch and the sound is not bad either.

Karen Schoemer, New York Times:

Like no other performer of the rock era, Morrison combines the transcendent and the mundane. He is the essence of contradiction: at once earthy and spiritual, sublime yet grounded, he can put God in the context of a pop song or sing about Coney Island as if it were the last stop before heaven. His appearance alone is an enigma: out of his short, pudgy frame comes a voice as soulful as a gospel falsetto… He would whisper then soar; occasionally he moved away from his microphone during an instrumental break, then rejoined on a line without stepping all the way back, so that his words were distant, removed. Sometimes he seemed to strum his guitar out of time with the music.

JOHNNY THUNDERS
Paris 1984 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Gibus Club, Paris, France; September 27, 1984. Fairly to very good soundboard.

More bluesy than punk.

Johnny Thunders came to prominence in the ’70s as a member of the New York Dolls. Leaving the Dolls in 1975, the hard rock/punk guitarist formed The Heartbreakers; and in 1979, formed Gang War, which included MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer. Thunders died in April 1991 at the age of 38, apparently of drug-related causes though there is speculation that it was the result of foul play. The real cause is probably shrouded in mystery.

Thanks to darkcrystal for sharing the show at Dime.

darkcrystal noted: “This is a clear soundboard courtesy of Pierre my old friend. He had the original tape transfered on CDR by himself, I suppose with a Pioneer PDR04.”

CULTURE
Boston 1981 [no label, 2CD]

Live in Boston, MA; January 1, 1981. Fairly good soundboard (slightly trebly).

The raw-edged lead vocals of Joseph Hill (who died in 2006), melodies like pop hymns and lyrics that meld current observations with biblical prophecies made Culture one of the most important Jamaican reggae bands of the late 1970s. Its first LP, ”Two Sevens Clash” from 1976, is a landmark reggae album that helped shape steadfast, mid-tempo ”rockers” reggae. - Jon Pareles, New York Times

Liner notes to Culture’s Two Sevens Clash:

“One day Joseph Hill had a vision, while riding a bus, of 1977 as a year of judgment - when two sevens clash - when past injustices would be avenged. Lyrics and melodies came into his head as he rode and thus was born the song “Two Sevens Clash” which became a massive hit in reggae circles both in Jamaica and abroad. The prophecies noted by the lyrics so profoundly captured the imagination of the people that on July 7, 1977 - the day when sevens fully clashed (seventh day, seventh month, seventy-seventh year), a hush descended on Kingston; many people did not go outdoors, shops closed, an air of foreboding and expectation filled the city.”

Perhaps one of Culture’s “prophecies” - their celebration of The International Herb, a song released in 1979 - will soon come to pass. On January 22, 2015, the BBC reported that the Jamaican cabinet has approved a bill that legalises the possession of small amounts of marijuana. This means that for the first time the country’s Rastafarian community, which uses the herb for religious purposes, could be able to smoke it legally. The bill also envisages a licensing authority for the cultivation, sale and distribution of marijuana for medical and therapeutic purposes. In 2014, Uruguay became the first country in the world to approve the growth, sale and distribution of marijuana.

DAVID MURRAY OCTET
New York 1997 [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Knitting Factory, New York, NY; February 16, 1997. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to sbernstein (Scott Bernstein) for sharing the share at Dime.

Scott noted:

Returning to my occasional “pure jazz” series, covering some of my favorite “real jazz” (that is, not jambands, or jazz-hybrids) concerts I’ve seen and recorded over the years, I present to you BARN165, The David Murray Octet from The Knitting Factory here in NYC. Setting the scene - after Branford Marsalis hooked up with The Grateful Dead in 1990, they continued to pursue some occasional collaboration with other jazz sax players - notably David Murray, a jazz giant, and Greg Osby. I got to see a couple of these performances (including one with the Jerry Garcia Band!), and was thusly exposed to David. It turns out that the man is a literal jazz GIANT - having released (by my count on Allmusic.com) approximately 80 (!) albums since 1976. Frankly, in terms of living jazz sax players, he’s got to be in the Top 5. I have since seen him three times, and this is the first of them.

Apparently his brief flirtation with the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia affected him enough to release an album in 1996 of Grateful Dead covers called “Dark Star: The Music Of The Grateful Dead”. This show at The Knit was right around then, so it was a good bet that we would hear some Grateful Dead stuff on this night. Being that this was a big name act at a smallish jazz club, the show was split into two separate tickets - an early show and a late show (and they cleared the room between sets). Sure enough, we got our Dead in the early show - a pretty “China Doll” and raucous “Shakedown Street”, after which David announced that was all of the Grateful Dead that the band had learned. The other tunes that filled out the first set were strong, and the set closing “Ballad For The Black Man” was beautiful. So far, so good - but nothing mind-blowing.

At this point I had no idea what we were in for in the late show - possibly some songs repeated from the early show… or maybe some different Grateful Dead from the album. But what we got was by far the most THRILLING, exciting, go for broke big-band jazz music I’ve ever had the good fortune to experience!

After a bit of joking around at the beginning of the set, David announces that he’s going to play “The Picasso Suite”, dedicated to his idol, Coleman Hawkins. This adventurous 45-minute suite ranges from flute/piano duet to full on saxophone honking, to all horns blowing full blast. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted from a jazz song and was an exciting roller coaster ride.

So, in summary - I came for The Dead, but was lucky enough to get some Picasso, which far and away the absolute highlight of this night! [After seeing this performed, I actually tracked down the original album that this suite appeared on - “Picasso”, recorded in 1992, and only available as a very expensive import from Japan. The liner notes tell me that David based the entire suite on a solo Hawkins sax piece of the same title, for a commission by and eventual live performance the Cleveland Museum Of Art. Two [sic] of the Octet’s band members from this show actually played on the original recording - Tani Tabbal, James Spaulding, and Wilber Morris.]

Grateful Dead historians will note that there is a semi-well-circulated David Murray show from just about a month later at The Fillmore in San Francisco (on 3/6/97) which is famous for being the night that Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Jeff Chementi sat in with David’s Octet (or Nonet?), and also the night that Phil Lesh met guitarist Stan Franks who was in David’s band that night (he was one of Phil’s “Friends” for a short time). It’s worth noting that only one of the players in David’s band on this night in NYC also played that night in SF (Winston Byrd). San Francisco got two more Dead songs in their show, but we got Picasso!

I believe that this show… was a part of the the Knitting Factory 10th Anniversary Celebration, where the owners brought out a lot of big jazz names to celebrate. I have seen David Murray two more since then, and was also blown away in different ways each time.

So 17-plus years later, I present what I could argue is the best, most exciting jazz performance I have yet to see - and I’ve seen quite a lot of them. If you are ready to be blown away, just skip to the beginning of the second set and get on the roller coaster!

PAUL McCARTNEY
Deliverance Live [Live Line LL 2-25452, 2CD]

The Paul McCartney World Tour 1989-1990. Live at the University of California’s Memorial Stadium, Berkeley, San Francisco, CA; March 31, 1990 and soundcheck at the Sun Devil Stadium, Phoenix, Arizona; April 4, 1990. Very good soundboard.

The Paul McCartney World Tour (1989-1990) was McCartney’s first major tour outing in 10 years, since Wings UK Tour 1979, and his first appearances in North America in 13 years, since the 1976 Wings Over America Tour. It was also his first tour under his name. While the tour coincided with the release of his Flowers In The Dirt album, it was thematically more about his finally embracing his Beatles past, including for the first time, in any of his tours, a substantial number of Beatles songs in the set list. The tour also resulted in the Tripping The Live Fantastic live album; and featured in the 1991 film Get Back; and the TV documentary, From Rio To Liverpool. - wikipedia

This is not the complete March 31, 1990 Berkeley show - an audience-recorded complete show has circulated among fans - but this appears to come from a soundboard. It is probably the April 4, 1990 soundcheck at the Sun Devil Stadium in Phoenix that would be more interesting for the fans. [Now, why does the Aeroplane Jam sounds like something from the Commodores circa Machine Gun? And couldn’t that jam (Track 208) come from a Santana set?]

Thanks to Philip Cohen for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.
