ISAAC HAYES
Wiesen 1997 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Festivalgelände, Bank Austria Stage, Wiesen, Austria; July 5, 1997. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

Given Isaac Hayes’ brand of slowburning love ballads, you either dig the man and his music or you don’t. Either way, his Bacharach covers are legendary and his Theme From Shaft (very rousing version here) remains a classic. And soundboard Isaac Hayes don’t easily come by.

In the long instrumental intro to Walk On By, The Man even worked in the James Bond Theme. Now, how cool is that?

Thanks to dajchance for sharing the tracks at Dime.

dajchance noted:

This was traded to me recently as being from 1997-07-03, however, the concert poster dates this as 1997-07-05. Some websites also list this as 1997-07-27 Jazz Summit, Wiesen, Austria. The track markers are slightly off in places.

PINK FLOYD
Harsh Realities [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Centre Sportif de l’Ile des Vannes, Saint-Ouen, France; December 1, 1972. Good to fairly good mono AM radio broadcast; stereo tweaked.

This one’s really for the fans.

Thanks to Heywood/eckoes 2011 for originally sharing this at Yeeshkul!; and to floydart for keeping it alive at The Traders’ Den.

Uploader’s Notes:

In 1972, RTL was one of the most popular radio stations in Europe. Despite having their studio in France (they were the intended audience), they had an insanely powerful transmitter in Luxembourg to overcome the French legislation that banned private broadcasting at the time. Because of this, they could be heard all over Western Europe, even in Scotland during beautiful days. At the time, Pink Floyd were very popular in France. They knew it and toured extensively there. It’s nonetheless quite surprising that the band agreed to broadcast live one of their shows from there because they only dealt with the BBC for this before and after this show. Well, if you consider that RTL was sponsoring nine of their concerts in French-speaking Europe at the time, it’s not that surprising; maybe it was part of the deal. The show we’re talking here is the second from those nine dates. It’s their last live broadcast on any media ’til the 1989 Venice TV show (one of their shows was recorded in November 1974, but was edited prior to broadcasting many months later).

Concert:
That night was special in many ways:
- “Blues” jam, generally played as an encore in a few shows, is part of the concert.
- “Childhood’s End” make its live debut in that show. It was played sometimes that month and at a few show in March 1973 before disappearing completly from their setlist. In fact, it’s the very first time a song from the album “Obscured By Clouds” (released six months before) was played live.
- They played an entire proto “Dark Side Of The Moon” live on the airwaves, almost four months before its release. One can hear that “The Mortality Sequence” is on its way to become “The Great Gig In The Sky”, “The Travel Sequence” jam is still there and that some arrangements are not quite finished.

Recording:
Broadcast: RTL was an AM radio station. In Mono. The concert was professionally mixed, but the sound was compressed and low-pass filtered. Other AM recording from RTL from the early ’70s, even on their website, have an HF rolloff starting at 4.5 kHz and finishing at 6kHz. This ain’t no ideal broadcast condition for a concert, especially for the Floyd. Problem is that this concert has never been broadcast again, so that’s all we had. This means that the concert sounds pretty rough to the ears, it is quite difficult to make out the instruments. But there was also a strange strong buzzing noise near 6kHz that was broadcast along the concert (we never found what this “buzz” was).

Recording: Many recordings exists for this concert, every single one of them is incomplete. The most complete (and luckily the best sounding) source available is a 1st gen copy of an analogue tape recording, transferred to DAT and then recorded on a computer at 16-bit and 48kHz. Yeah, that’s right, there’s no direct recording of the broadcast available and no complete tapes exists too. Sad but true. This specific source is phase shifted, suffers from a lot of dropouts and tape cuts (due to this source being a copy of a recording), and is plagued with hiss and background hum. And that’s not all: the tape ran a little too fast.

Restoration:
Basics: the RTL tape was speed-corrected. Then, the show was converted back to mono by making both channels = right channel. This step also removed the phase-shifting problem altogether.

Edits: we went went through the tapes and fixed as many of the drop outs that we could find by attenuating or trimmimg them by hand. Sometimes, entire sections were duplicated (due to a tape-flip during the copy), so we ended up with a much shorter recording. We also replaced the first note of Us And Them that was cut off by the tape flip with a little piece from later in the song in order to have a solid start. What we end up with is something that sounds a lot more like the typical recordings of the period than it did before.

Until a complete tape of the show surfaces, this is by far the closest you can have to the original broadcast. We hope that RTL recorded the show in high-quality and that this tape will leak one day. Until then, this is the best we could do from what we got. It’s not perfect, it’s still a bit rough, but it’s much better than before in our opinions.

Many thanks to creamchesse, littlepieces, movement, goldenband for their technical suggestions and advices. Thanks to neonknight for providing the recording of the RTL tape. Thanks to meddler for the Speed Corrected Series of the Poitiers show and thanks to BrunO who provided you the tape. Special thanks to goa, RonToon, Orgone Accumulator and all the people from Yeeshkul! for their encouragement.

Here’s something to those naysayers of sharing. With less than 400 left in the wild, Sumatran tigers are at risk of going extinct. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute have partnered with indie rock band Portugal. The Man, bringing science and music together to distribute an Endangered Song written for the project titled “Sumatran Tiger”. The song was lathe-cut onto 400 custom poly-carbonate records designed to degrade after a certain number of plays. There are no other copies of the song in existence. The records were sent to a select 400 folks who were asked to digitize and share the song through their social channels.

Portugal. The Man is an American rock band from Wasilla, Alaska. The group consists of John Gourley, Zach Carothers, Kyle O’Quin and Jason Sechrist.

The song will go extinct unless it’s digitally reproduced. The Sumatran tiger will go extinct unless we take action.

The song has already been shared on Soundcloud.

PHOEBE SNOW
London 1989 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Shaw Theatre, London, UK; April 1989. First broadcast May 19, 1989. Excellent radio broadcast.

As Fred Dellar wrote back in 1975, “Quite a jazz lady actually - mind you she’s got her sights on that kind of bluesy, folksy, nostalgia-filled hinterland that’s proved so profitable for Maria Muldaur.” She was described by The New York Times as a “contralto grounded in a bluesy growl and capable of sweeping over four octaves.” [check out the ending of At Last]

Phoebe Snow suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on January 19, 2010 and slipped into a coma, enduring bouts of blood clots, pneumonia, and congestive heart failure. She died on April 26, 2011 at the age of 60.

Listen and weep…

POLAR BEAR
London 2014 [TomP remaster, 1CD]

Live at XOYO, London, UK; April 2, 2014; broadcast April 14, 2014. Excellent webcast.

Led by drummer Sebastian Rochford, Polar Bear have been central to the British experimental scene for the past decade, with their unique brand of genre-bending post-jazz. On previous outings their sound has embraced everything from punk to hip-hop, however, their latest record sees a shift to more intense and expansive territory - with warm electronic flavours seamlessly integrated at the heart of the music. Twisting, long-form compositions come to life through the saxophone melodies of Mark Lockheart and Peter Wareham, whilst electronics whiz Leafcutter John, bassist Tom Herbert and Rochford anchor the sound in hypnotic rhythms. - BBC Radio 3

Stuart Gadd wrote at artrocker.tv:

With the gig being recorded for Radio 3’s Jazz On 3, this could, for example, have been more Apocalypse Now meets Cabaret Voltaire, nudging that group’s urban (almost) myth status with more electronically based urgent rhythms. But on the night they turned down the more abstract, pattern cut sound. Pete Wareham and Mark Lockheart’s memorable sax lines instead exuding a post-colonial official suffering the dreaded noonday demon yet deliriously expelling the fiend, as on the surreal gamelan steam of encore Sometimes.

With its slow mood of threat, Life And Life didn’t quite have the missionary startling quality of the record’s version, with Pete Wareham’s horn interlude – they need to turn him up at this fierce point – but drummer Seb Rochford, who must be the most self-effacing group leader ever, was showing the tactile, jazz improvisatory qualities, playfully re-arranging Be Free (as Leafcutter John provided the Super 8 spliced rhythm out of his box of disjointed electronic tricks) to be even freer, the melodic pay off of its distinctive twin horn motif now arriving at the end. Better late than never, this brought huge cheers… Maliana, however, grew into its skin, a pounding electro acoustic meets techno monster in a haunted effigy forest, aided and abetted by John’s lost marbles roll and Wareham and Lockhearts’s locked fever dream horns. The melodic horns had it. And yes, it was pretty damn jazz.

SINEAD O’CONNOR
The Gospel Sessions 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City, NY; July 26, 2013. Very good audience recording.

I’m conscious that me being Sinead O’Connor means there may be criticism because there’s so much nonsense about how people involved in religious music should be perfect. I refer those who feel that way to my earlier remark about angels needing by nature to be imperfect. No one relates to squares. Squares don’t know how to get their hands dirty and that’s no use to God. Also, I say you don’t have to be perfect to have perfect faith.
- Sinead O’Connor to the question: What do you say to someone who can’t believe you are headlining an evening of gospel music.

Ben Ratliff of The New York Times wrote:

Sinead O’Connor wore a priest’s collar [an Irish priest, she was ordained in 1999 by an independent Catholic group not recognized by the church] camouflage pants and bare feet in her first major experiment in this music, her “Gospel Sessions” concerts on Friday and Saturday night at Alice Tully Hall, part of the Lincoln Center Festival…

Here was a project she desired to make thoroughly her own, a need carried out with specificity… She sang a few songs from the Soul Stirrers’ repertory: “Jesus Be a Fence Around Me” and “Praying Ground.” A few from Blind Willie Johnson’s: “John the Revelator” and “Nobody’s Fault but Mine.” One from Mahalia Jackson’s: “Trouble of the World.” And one from Nina Simone’s: “Nearer Blessed Lord.” That song refers to Jesus’ “ever-bleeding side”; before singing it, Ms. O’Connor related a story of her beatings as a child-abuse victim and her early sense that Jesus’ wounds on the cross connected his lifeblood to hers…

Whether in deference to the material or because she was intimidated by it, she turned toward the simple folk singer that she only rarely is… She sang a pair of Bob Dylan songs from his born-again period - “I Believe in You” and “Property of Jesus” — and knew what to do with them. Her phrasing grew argumentative, and her microphone technique grew sharper; she traced melody lines in a whisper, then shouted notes while whipping her head to one side, balancing her impact…

It wasn’t so much that she took possession of the songs, but that she released herself within them. The strength of the choir gave the music its form; she sought to make her voice dissolve into theirs. She found a way to use all of herself, the whispers and the hollers, without dominating. It suggested religion as a series of questions, or as transparency, rather than as decree.

CHRISTO GRAHAM
Muppet Christ Superstar [no label, 1CD]

Fan-made project. Excellent audio.

A big word of thanks to Christo Graham for embarking and sharing this project.

And thanks also to fiveofseven for spreading this on the net.

fiveofseven notes:

The furry and rambunctious cast of Jim Henson’s iconic The Muppets lend their unique talents to JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR via an impressively inventive new album experiment titled MUPPET CHRIST SUPERSTAR by committed fan Christopher Graham (who voices all the characters in the parody).

“If you strip away the myth from the frog/You will see where we all soon will be/Kermit!” passionately sings Gonzo (as Judas Iscariot) to Kermit (Jesus Christ) in the rocking opener, “Heaven On Their Minds”, faithfully recreating the sounds of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s iconic Biblical rock opera in doing so.

Additionally, Miss Piggy - who else? - portrays Mary Magedelene and Rowlf The Dog essays the role of Herod.

Yet, the real question still remains: what will Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice say about all of this?! Hopefully, they will have a Christian attitude about it all - it is Holy Week, after all.

A disclaimer on the site reads: “This is a parody created for entertainment purposes only. I do not own the rights to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber or the likenesses of Jim Henson’s Muppets, unfortunately. I’d be a whole lot cooler if I did.”

EYEDRESS
With Skint Eastwood
Hearing Colors [no label, 1CD]

Mixtape, excellent audio.

Filipino producer Eyedress (Idris Vicuña), who is based in Quezon City, Manila, has released a new mixtape titled Hearing Colors and, not only that, has offered it as a free download. This 12-track release of new music comes as the follow-up to last year’s Supernatural EP. Six of the tracks feature vocals by collaborator Skint Eastwood. The tracks were recorded using Fruity Loops in Eyedress’ bedroom on a PC laptop handed down to him by his father.

For those with long memories, this recalls Strawberry Switchblade.

Rina Raymundo of thisisthecut.com wrote:

After a decade in the UK and a year-long nomadic stint through South America, vocalist and lyricist Skint Eastwood found herself back in the Philippines. There, she discovered an immediate musical connection with Eyedress. “The first thing we agreed on musically was The Locust, and the last thing we created was a Keith Sweat cover.” Both wanted to create Asian bangers that sound like the future. Skint asked Eyedress for “his darkest and heaviest beats… to make them sound as light and otherworldly as [her] voice permits”.

In May 2014, Eyedress will play the NME Radar Stage at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton.

ARVO PART
A Portrait (Part V) [no label, 2CD]

Live at various venues and dates. All titles are from various 192kbps (MPEG-Layer 3) webcasts.

On December 10, 2011, Estonian Arvo Part was appointed a member of the Pontifical Council for Culture for a five-year renewable term by Pope Benedict XVI. As a composer, living or otherwise, Part has certainly left his mark with his funereal-sounding works; and with releases such as Tabula Rasa, Passio and Miserere, there is no finer meditative company than with Arvo Part every Good Friday.

Thanks to Neetelbaers for recording and sharing these tracks at Dime.

SANTANA-McLAUGHLIN
Love Devotion Surrender Sessions [no label, 2CD]

Unknown studio (supposedly in California); 1973. Good to very good soundboard.

Thanks to jswetch for sharing the tracks at Dime.

jswetch noted:

I purchased this many years ago in a record store (remember them?) in New York’s East Village. It purports to be outtakes from the sessions that produced the Love Devotion Surrender (LDS) album, and indeed there are different versions and works in progress from that project here. The version of A Love Supreme on this was virtually identical to the one on the official release, so I didn’t include that for the sake of not having this banned. What you’ll hear doesn’t sound pristine, but it is pretty good quality, give the time period that this emerged from. My guess is that this was dubbed a couple of times from the original studio tapes… Remarkable to think that there was a time about 40 years ago when a project like this would have been awarded a Gold Record for sales, which the original Love Devotion Surrender did actually receive.

As to the idea that some of these tracks are identical to the LDS disc/album [see below], I did definitely detect that with A Love Supreme, and that’s why it’s not included in this torrent. As for the others, I did A/B listens to the torrent material and LDS (and Welcome for Mantra). Definitely similar takes in some cases, but the timing of the tracks were all different enough, that I felt they were not the same tracks. A couple of them were nearly a minute or 2 in length different from each other. A difference like that wouldn’t just be the result of a fast or slow turntable or tape deck. In any case, we can only guess.

More notes from shakti fan (provided by propylaen at Dime):

A. LDS was recorded over two sessions, I believe. My memory on this is a little foggy, but the first sessions were in 1972. Then there were more session in April(?) ‘73 where they recorded Flame-Sky and Mantra. The former was, of course, featured on Welcome (which was released November 1973, not 1974), and the latter not released until 2003 as a bonus track on the excellent CD reissue. I am unsure whether any tracks from the later session were actually featured on LDS… Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord, perhaps?? Anyway, it seems that at least the later session was something in between a regular Santana session and a McLaughlin/Santana session. They’re working on Flor de Canela and Samba de Sausalito here, which would suggest it was actually a Santana session (in fact, it seems that many tracks here don’t really feature McLaughlin).

B. I’ve had more time to listen to this stuff now, and I wanted to make some further comments on the tracks and the sessions. I think it’s fair to categorize much of this stuff more as “Santana” outtakes rather than “Mahavishnu JM & Carlos Santana” outtakes. Some of these observations will be guesswork, but nonetheless…feel free to add further comments:

Disc 1:

01 Instrumental: This one puzzles me… the way they play sounds much more like the live recordings of the ‘73 tour than any of the stuff on the studio record. The drummer sounds like Cobham, the organ player like Larry Young, the bass player like Doug Rauch. I guess it *could* be from the October ‘72 that produced the bulk of the original LDS album (or so I believe), but this sounds almost like a tour rehearsal to me. Something about the way JM shreds on this one makes me think of the later live recordings. However, about halfway through another organ enters, and it sounds very much like a Yamaha or similar electric organ, like Tom Coster (or was it Richard Kermode) used to play a lot with Santana. Can anyone identify the tune they’re jamming on here? Comparing to the live recordings it reminds me the most of Taurian Matador.

02 A Love Supreme: Pardon me, but isn’t this just the album take, lifted from a vinyl source? I have a hunch it might be from the quad release, but it’s the same basic take and edit.

03 Naima: Ditto

04/05 The Life Divine: Up until JM’s solo, starting at 4:28, these two are identical to the released version on the standard stereo version of LDS. From there on out, they differ… JM’s solo is in full-on shred mode. Not that he was restrained on the stereo version (one of my favourite JM solos!) but here he just rips… unfortunately I don’t think it’s anywhere near as successful as the standard version, which has impeccable execution and construction. This one is much more rambling. However, I am almost 100 per cent sure that this is the take released on the Quadrophonic version of the album, which infamously had an alternate JM solo on this track. At 22 seconds into the first of these versions, there’s a slight skip/bump… almost like something putting down the dust cover on a record player while doing a needle drop. Further “evidence” that this is a needle drop from the quad version. The fade-out is also much longer on this one. The two versions here are identical, though, except the first (track 4) sounds better except for the slight bump mentioned.

06 Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord: Again, as far as I can tell, exactly the same as the released version. Sounds like a needle drop again. Fades out abruptly though.

Disc 2:

01 Mantra: This definitely sounds like it’s from the sessions for the track Mantra, which was eventually released as a bonus track on the 2003 reissue of Welcome. The finished track doesn’t feature any guitar IIRC, but does have both JM and Carlos chanting. The stuff featured here sounds like a loose jam/soundcheck, but there’s so much fantastic stuff being thrown around here that it’s a feast to listen to. McLaughlin plays some lines that harken back to stuff he played with Lifetime, and some lines that point to later Mahavishnu stuff (unison lines of Eternity’s Breath pt 1). Carlos plays some chords from The Light of Life. Then there are also hints to Flame-Sky. Can anyone hear what the engineer is saying right at the end…”****** take 2″??

02 Flame-Sky: Probably from the same session as above. The Welcome reissue has Flame-Sky as recorded in May ‘73 and Mantra in April. Given that those two are the only tracks from the Welcome sessions to feature JM, I would venture as far as saying they were *probably* both recorded in either April or May. Anyway, this doesn’t sound like a “JM/Carlos” session as such - it’s clearly the Santana band featuring JM as a guest. But hey, Welcome is one of my top 10 (actually, make that top *5*) albums of all time, so I’m not complaining!! Great, great stuff here.

03 Title unknown: This is an interesting little thing. Sounds like JM playing those vina-like runs and Carlos backing him on acoustic. My guess is that this has nothing to do with the official/CBS LDS recordings. Rather, it is a home(?) recording of JM and Carlos running through some devotional songs that they did together at Sri Chinmoy events. But who is that singing?

04 Title unknown: Eeeeerrrr… this could be just about anyone messing around on a pump organ. My guess though, based on the voice: Carlos trying out some new devotional song. Again, my guess is it’s a home recording.

05 Acoustic jam #1: I thought a jam session would involve at least two musicians? This is probably just Carlos messing around with some new chord progressions. I don’t recognize anything in particular except a lick or two that remind me of Practice What You Preach from Borboletta.

06 Acoustic jam #2: Again just Carlos, and I don’t recognize anything here, except a progression that sounds like it was lifted from some Beatles song…

07 Acoustic jam #3: As I mentioned before, this is Carlos running through an embryonic version of Light of Life, and then into the same chords as acoustic jam #1. I think I read somewhere that he sang Light of Life alone with an acoustic aat some Sri Chinmoy events.

08-11 Samba de Sausalito: Wonderful stuff! Again, this is from the Welcome sessions, and does not feature JM. There’s lots of interesting stuff here; the band working out parts in the studio, Tom Coster(?) teaching Carlos the right notes to the transition into Samba de Sausalito “proper”… as we can hear, they obviously devised it with the cool intro which they played live in ‘73 (heard on Lotus). This was cut out on Welcome (therefore the abrupt start of that track) and then later reappeared as Flor de Canela on Borboletta.
