CARLY SIMON
Boston 1995 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Avalon, Boston, MA; March 13, 1995. Fairly to very good audience recording.

There are very few live Carly Simon shows and the reason is that Simon does not like to fly and she is very “wary about performing.” She said: “It’s a scary thing to do. Public speaking is like the No. 1 fear over death.”

Steve Morse, Boston Globe, March 14, 1995:

Carly Simon scored another first last night. Not only was it her first local show in 14 years (excluding a brief cameo at the KISS party in ‘92), but it was the first time a non-corporate cabaret concert had been tried at Avalon. It was the perfect marriage between artist and venue, as Simon delivered a sharp, confidence-brimming set before a scaled-down crowd of 750 fans - 300 of whom sat at tables that made the room feel more like a coffeehouse than a dance club.

Simon is a seemingly transformed woman from the fragile figure who suffered from stage shivers in her last two major engagements in Boston. One was a jittery show at Orpheum Theater (she cut short her tour soon afterward) and the other was at the Paradise, where she failed to show up for one set and her then-husband, James Taylor, went on instead.

That feels like ancient history now. Last night, Simon interacted easily with the crowd - far more easily than many of her peers. It was impossible to believe this was the same woman who virtually needed smelling salts to get on stage in the old days. She bantered freely - and added totally different stage patter from her recent opening show in Santa Ana, CA, which this writer also attended.

The song list was similar to that show - from the a cappella intro of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” (which she first did for Ken Burns’ documentary, “Baseball”) to an encore of the alltime radio classic, “You’re So Vain,” which is to soft-rock radio what Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” is to album-rock formats.

There were surprises, though, last night. One was a guest shot by Livingston Taylor on an encore of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Another was the sudden “duelling basses” of backup musicians Doug Wimbish and Jerry Barnes. And another was an appearance by Simon’s daughter, Sally, 21, to sing Wilson Pickett’s “Mustang Sally.” As Simon beamed with pride from her spot as backup singer, Sally took the song home in style. She had started tentatively, but gained confidence as the tune developed. It was evident that she had the Simon/Taylor musical genes - and could likely have a musical career if she sought it.

Simon, who is expected to play Harborlights this summer if all goes well, won several standing ovations with emotional revisits to early hits “Anticipation” and “Haven’t Got Time for the Pain.” She clearly relished being back on stage (”I really get to feel like David Letterman sometimes when I cut the band off,” she quipped). And she managed to incorporate such genre touchstones as Broadway show music (Rodgers & Hart’s “He Was Too Good to Me”), lyrical folk-jazz (”No Secrets”) and a blast of funk (the new “Letters Never Sent”).

Her smartly chosen backup band never let her down - with special kudos to Boston-based guitarist Peter Calo, former Berklee College keyboardist Teese Gohl and backup singers Katreese and Jerry Barnes.

Opening acoustic performer Eoin Woods also fared well, though he kept his acoustic stylings fairly tame compared to some of the fiery, crowd-pleasing shows for which he’s known.

Thanks to the taper; and to shopkin527 for sharing the show at Dime.

shopkin527 noted: “Moderate crowd noise… excised several moments of close-up audience noise between songs… and several instances of static mic cable noise in one channel have been patched as two channel mono.”

VAN MORRISON
Lost California Performances - Irvine 1975 [JF Archive Series No. 5 via JEMS, 1CD]

Live at Crawford Hall, University of California, Irvine, CA; June 6, 1975 (11 pm/late show). Fairly to very good audience recording.

If you are a fan, this series is both a revelation and a wonderful find. Thanks to taper JF; BK; JEMS; and mjk5510 for sharing the show at Dime.

THE LOST 1975 PERFORMANCES

The fifth release from JF’s archive is something special. Not only is it an uncirculated Van Morrison recording from 40 years ago, but, to the best of our knowledge, no details of this performance can be found in any reference we could find on the web of Morrison’s touring history, the most definitive of which is the German site Vanomatic.de.

Vanomatic lists a mere 22 shows taking place in all of 1975, and, inexplicably, the only extant record of any ‘75 performance is a single 18-minute recording and six-song set list from the Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, April 21. How Van Morrison, given his stature in 1975, could play 22 concerts, all but one of which (Buffalo) was in California, most of which were in San Francisco, and have them go completely unrecorded and undocumented is bizarre to say the least. But that changes now.

The late set in Irvine does appear in Vanomatic’s list of ‘75 shows but with no known setlist. It becomes the third full recording from ‘75, with three more JF tapes to come, so we go from 18 minutes of a single ‘75 show to half a dozen full, uncirculated shows. We’ve named JF’s six recordings from 1975 the Lost California Performances.

Thanks to some legwork by JF and the cooperation of other Van collectors, this show is transferred from the original master cassettes. As noted earlier in our series, it was JF’s practice to copy his masters onto reels and reuse the cassettes. But in the case of Van Morrison, the artist he taped the most, he kept the masters intact. The tapes were loaned out over the years, but JF was recently able to get half of them back, so thanks to those who helped transport them to JEMS for fresh transfers.

IRVINE, LATE SET

The 11 pm show at Crawford Hall mirrors most of the early-show setlist (click here), staying in the same bluesy lane with covers of Mose Allison’s “One Of These Days” and Leadbelly’s “Sweet Mary Blues.” The one new addition is “You Move Me.” If anything, Van is shouting even more as the night wears on, culminating in another epic “St Dominic’s Preview” that again references Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” and the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The set-closing “Moondance” also gets tagged with a bit of Peggy Lee’s “Fever.”

Here’s what JF recalled about the Irvine shows:

“This was the second show in a mini-Van marathon. Saw two shows this night in Irvine, two the next in Riverside and one more on the afternoon of the following day in Santa Barbara. There were no seats for this show - people gathered around the stage on the floor of the college basketball arena and danced or just hung out and listened. I set up back by the sound booth in the center of the hall, warily eyeing Van’s sound people so they wouldn’t catch me recording and secretly wishing I could tap into their line feed from the stage.

Among my memorabilia I recently found an old newspaper ad for the concerts at Irvine and Riverside. To my astonishment, I ‘learned’ that Roger McGuinn was the supporting act. I had completely forgotten that and only vaguely have some recollection of that now that my memory has been jogged. I mention it because this is another example of how my girlfriend Laura Greenwood and I would go off into Van-trances for these short periods when he would tour Southern California. I was a big fan of McGuinn and the Byrds, and yet for decades, until reminded of it, I had no idea that I saw him perform as a warm-up act for Van.”

Thanks to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you.

We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors for helping to get JF’s masters back in his control. And finally mjk5510, who continues to be at the ready to finish off JEMS’ projects. Much appreciated.

BLACK UHURU
New York 1981 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Ritz, New York, NY; October 13, 1981 (late show). Very good FM broadcast.

In their day, Black Uhuru had two of the slickest and hottest rhythm section/producers around - Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. Four days after this New York gig, Black Uhuru became one of the first groups (if not the first) to play at Germany’s Rockpalast Festival. According to Jahre Rockpalast, one of the band’s guitarists had to learn about German thoroughness and intolerance while going through customs at the Dusseldorf Airport. He was so thoroughly ‘examined’ that he ended up in the hospital. [Vocalist Puma Jones died of cancer in 1990. She was 36.]

DAVE DOUGLAS/JOE LOVANO’S SOUND PRINTS
Offenburg 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the 29th Jazzdor Festival, Reithalle, Offenburg, Germany; November 14, 2014. Very good satellite broadcast.

For almost 20 years, trumpeter Dave Douglas and saxophonist Joe Lovano have been prime moving forces in the jazz scene, their paths crossing often on stage and occasionally on record. Douglas appears on Lovano’s 2001 Blue Note album Flights Of Fancy: Trio Fascination Edition Two and they overlapped as members of the SFJAZZ Collective for three seasons during which the band performed the repertoire of Thelonious Monk, McCoy Tyner, and their mutual touchstone: saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter.

The latter part of 2014 saw Douglas and Lovano launching a 22-date tour across the United States and Europe with their co-led quintet Sound Prints featuring pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh and drummer Joey Baron. Sound Prints take their inspiration from the music of Shorter - the band’s name is a nod to his classic “Footprints” - however, the quintet’s focus is on new original compositions by Lovano and Douglas, as well as new Shorter compositions in direct collaboration with Shorter himself. The band is fueled by a desire to push the boundaries of their music as far as they can stretch, similar to the expansive role Shorter has played in jazz since his debut with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1959.

THE YARDBIRDS
Los Angeles 1968/San Remo 1966 [no label, 2CD]

Live at at the Shrine Exposition Hall, Los Angeles, CA; May 31, 1968 and June 1, 1968. Fairly good audience recording. Live at the 16th San Remo Festival, Casino‚ Municipale, Salone Delle Feste, San Remo, Italy; January 27 and 28, 1966. Very good radio broadcast.

Thanks to Philip Cohen, we had previously shared the 1968 Los Angeles shows via the Goldtone CD release of Last Rave-Up In LA (click here). The tracks here are taken from the vinyl and tape source. As a bonus, we have added the four Yardbirds tracks from the 1966 San Remo shows.

+ + + + +

Thanks to taper David Cole; Thomas aka DocDondy and to watchit for sharing the 1968 Shrine shows at Dime.

watchit noted:

On May 31-June 1, 1968, the Yardbirds played two consecutive nights in Los Angeles, CA. The shows were taped by David Cole. The second night recording is obviously incomplete, but I find it interesting the amount of variation between the two nights. The highlight for me is their cover of the Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting for the Man.” With so few live Yardbirds recordings, this is the only known version. In 1979, the taper released a three-LP bootleg box set with the highlights of the shows; basically every song minus the duplicates played both nights. Tapes of both shows including duplicates also circulate. These were made into a CD on the Goldtone label with inferior sound quality.

This material has been seeded previously at Dime from tape source but I like the sound of the vinyl bootleg three-record set better. Since it is incomplete, I have filled in the missing portions from the previous torrent. All tracks have been carefully remastered and edited for the best possible sound, but it’s still fairly bad. It appears that the LPs are made from the master tape, and the extra songs are from a copy tape of ~3rd generation. The LPs have a crisper sound with better stereo separation, and unfortunately more tape hiss.

+ + + + +

Thanks also to 38f’s father who recorded 1966 San Remo shows; and to 38f for sharing the tracks at Dime in 2007.38f noted:

The Italian San Remo Festival is a music competition started in 1950… The rules of the competition in the ’50s and ’60s were pretty different from now, every performance had to be strictly live, and there were an Italian and a foreign artist competing together against other couples and they had to sing two songs, one of each had to have italian lyrics, so we saw artists like the Hollies, the Rolling Stones, Paul Anka participating… the Yardbirds did not make it to the third final night because they had not enough votes to reach the final.

Well, my now 84-year-old father used to record all the festival editions with his Revox from this Filodiffusione radio and he still has those reels… recently I went through those tapes and found the Yardbirds performances… Many of you probably never heard Questa Volta with extended lyrics because it was only sung with these lyrics at the San Remo Festival. Another thing is that the Yardbirds were stayng at the Grand Hotel Del Mar in Bordighera, three miles from San Remo. In this hotel there is a swimming pool that has some stone pedestal in the middle of the pool… many photo sessions were done in this pool… and the cover of the italian single “Shapes Of Things” was done in this pool during the days of the Yardbirds’ San Remo experience.

COURTNEY BARNETT
KCRW AND SXSW 2015 [no label, 1CD]

Live on Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW; March 13, 2015. SXSW - Stubb’s Bar-B-Q, Austin, TX; March 18, 2015. Very good audio extracted from webcast.

Singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett from Melbourne, Australia is a rising new name and she’s already making the rounds - appearing on the BBC; Philly’s World Cafe; Santa Monica’s KCRW and Austin’s SXSW.

Stephen Thompson, npr.org:

Courtney Barnett made her name with 2013’s “Avant Gardener,” a deadpan, loosely rambling account of a severe anaphylactic attack. The song, like its counterparts on her early EPs, was many things - wordy, funny, surprising, wittily crafted - but it wasn’t forceful.

Today, the Melbourne singer-songwriter is a full-fledged rock ‘n’ roll star, leading a tight and aggressive band through songs that stomp harder and harder as they progress. But Barnett also doubles down on her dense, intricate, wonderfully written wordplay, and loses none of her sublime quotability along the way. On her new album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, she can positively rage - a far cry from the mellow slacker fans heard in her early work.

Performing in NPR Music’s SXSW showcase at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, Texas, Barnett more than matched the album’s energy, as she and her band careened through most of Sometimes I Sit And Think with power that felt positively gigantic. They’ve only recently begun playing these songs live, but you’d never know it.

NEIL YOUNG WITH CRAZY HORSE
Paris 1976 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Pavillon de Paris, Paris, France; March 23, 1976. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Before performing in Europe in 1976, Neil Young and Crazy Horse played in Japan between March 3 and 11.

Andy Greene, rollingstone.com:

Crazy Horse guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro will never forget the group’s March 1976 tour of Japan. He’d only joined the band a few months earlier during the recording sessions for Zuma, and prior to boarding the plane to Japan his only live experience with Young came during a handful of California bar shows in December of 1975. He suddenly found himself playing to enormous, screaming crowds all over Japan. For someone who was merely a fan of Neil Young the previous year, the entire experience was beyond surreal.

The sixth stop of the tour was at Tokyo’s Budokan Hall, and Young hired a film crew to tape the two-night stand. Nobody bothered to tell Poncho, and he dropped a bunch of acid before going onstage one of the nights. “I couldn’t even look up,” he told author Jimmy McDonough. “I was so high. I’d hit the strings of my guitar - they were like eight different colors - and they bounced off the floors and hit the ceiling.”

The 1976 Neil Young and Crazy Horse tour was supposed to hit America in the summer, but Young began playing with Stephen Stills when he returned home and decided the abandon The Horse in order to form the Stills-Young Band. They recorded an LP very quickly and hit the road, though after just eighteen dates Young decided he had enough. He couldn’t even face Stills to tell him the news. Instead, he wrote this now famous letter: “Dear Stephen, funny how some things that start spontaneously end that way. Eat a peach, Neil.”

Thanks to the taper and the original uploader; and to Dangerbird_F for keeping the show alive at Dime.

Dangerbird_F added: “As for many countries that year, it was the first time Neil had stopped in France. The interview Neil gave later that evening can be qualified as legendary, for he admitted to the journalists: “Right know, all I nead is a good fuck!”… The performance is incredible, Neil is making joke after joke (you know what the name Crazy Horse refers to in Paris…).”

GRAND FUNK RAILROAD
Fort Benning 2015 [no label, 1CD]

MWR Concert Series, live at York Field, Fort Benning, GA; May 9, 2015. Fairly to very good audience recording.

It’s 46 years of Grand Funk Railroad (since 1969)… and the group is still chugging nicely along. But then, there are some who feel the group is incomplete (or worse, shouldn’t even exist) without guitarist/vocalist Mark Farner.

Thanks to jackflash for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

jackflash noted:

A free concert put on by the US Army Fort Benning Dictoriate of Family and Moral, Welfare and Recreation (an old school, free-of-charge concert). I’ve seen Mark Farner three times in the last four years and it was good to finally see/hear Mel and Don’s version of the GFR classics. I wish they would work out their differences and do a re-union tour/gig.

Overall, a good recording. Minimal crowd noise/chatter. I must have pulled my mic chord as two songs got split… Rock n Roll Soul and Second Chance were [originally] split because I briefly/accidently pulled the mic chord. Maybe 3 to 6 seconds of Second Chance are missing. Just me being an old man, moving and adjusting in my seat. My apologies in advance. Also, there is heavy bass, and bass drum distortion on Second Chance and the Drum Solo, as I placed my mics on my arm chair and went (away)… and got back in time for proper placement for the brief guitar solo.

Thanks also to Eric T for the artwork.
