VARIOUS
Concerts For The People Of Kampuchea Outtakes [JEMS Transfer, 2CD]

Live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, UK; December 16-19, 1979. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to JEMS; BK; and to mjk5510 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Uploader’s notes:

The Concerts for Kampuchea came out at that moment in my life bridging the classic rock artists I had initially fallen in love with in my early teens (e.g. The Who, Paul McCartney) and the new artists that had become my passion (e.g. The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders). Kampuchea offered great performances from both, on film and record.

The shows themselves took place over four nights at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in late 1979. A year later saw the release of a concert film from the event, which made its way to the US art house circuit where I first saw it (it later screened on TV as well).

In March of 1981, Atlantic Records released a double live album culled from the concerts which featured most of the performances seen in the film with a few variations. For instance, there are more McCartney songs in the movie than on the album, and one extra Who song on the album (”Baba O’Riley”) not seen in the original film.

Undoubtedly due to rights and clearance challenges and the charity aspect of behind the project, the two-LP Concerts for Kampuchea has never been released on CD and the film has never come out on DVD (at least officially). Bootleg videos of Kampuchea are out there, derived from the aforementioned TV broadcasts.

Earlier this year, JEMS obtained tapes from a former Atlantic Records executive. Included were three cassettes marked “Concerts for Cambodia.” One listen made it clear that the cassettes contained rough cuts of possible tracks for inclusion on the live album, undoubtedly transferred from mix-down reels to these cassettes for song-selection purposes.

To be clear, the tapes don’t contain the full artist sets; it is all the songs from the album and film, plus another 20 from the same artists that were under consideration for the double LP but didn’t make the final cut.

We believe this is the first time the material has ever circulated, though three of the cuts (”Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Brass in Pocket,” “Three Time Loser”) were added to broadcasts of Kampuchea on US and later Japanese TV (the source of most bootleg DVDs and YouTube clips). Because they were not included in the original film, with the benevolent blessing of the Mods, they are included here.

Highlights include two leftovers from a spirited McCartney & Wings set, “I’ve Had Enough” and a cover of Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock.” Macca would later release a studio version of the latter on Choba B CCCP.

From the Clash we also gain a pair, a fine “Bankrobber” and an underwhelming “London Calling.” A rollicking “You Belong to Me” is the add from Costello, while The Pretenders offer a long “Private Life.”

We wrap up with expanded sets from The Specials and Ian Dury & The Blockheads, both in the prime of their careers, and British reggae band, Matumbi.

The quality of these unreleased performance is excellent and despite the age of the cassettes, they played back very well.

We thought this might make a welcome holiday gift from JEMS to the community if you loved the Kampuchea album like I did. We’d also like to point out that the highly rated charity Cambodian Children’s Fund could probably use your donation, if you are moved to give in the spirit of the original concerts.

Special thanks to mjk5510 for his incredible contributions to the JEMS cause in 2014 including wrapping this special Kampuchea project up in a bow.

BOB DYLAN/PATTI SMITH
Bethlehem, PA 1995 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Stabler Arena, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; December 13, 1995. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Anthony Rzepela’s review, posted at panix.com:

Patti was off by 8:50, but there was so much dead air that her set was only 7 songs. (Two electric up front  and at the back, as opposed to the standard three, and there was no “Because The Night” or “People Have The Power”). Her cold was evident, despite really valiant efforts by Patti to make sure that it didn’t show. I actually felt guilty during “Dark Eyes”, as she was obviously struggling and hoping that she wouldn’t crack. To put illness on top of this inhumane schedule (now ONE day off in 11) just made me feel slimy for being a part of it, even as a lowly paying customer…

Still, the most enthusiastic overall appreciation came for the reminders of Dylan (the opener, “Wicked Messenger”) and the Dead (”Not Fade Away”) and it wasn’t enough to get an encore. It was Patti’s exit after “Dark Eyes” in Dylan’s set that got people to actually show some lovin’ - a sudden rush of mad (mostly female) fans running up to the front of the wide floor aisles just to say “Hi” or cheer her on. (You’d think it was a rush of Green Day moshers the way security swooped down, but I digress. This coincided with that moment in BobShows where he allows the aisles to be occupied, so little damage was done. Dylan’s gentle coaching on lyrics she was forgetting was probably the single most touching thing I’ve ever seen on stage.)

BOSTON POPS ORCHESTRA
with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus
Holiday Pops 2009 [A Zootype Project, 2CD]

Live at the Symphony Hall, Boston, MA; December 19, 2009. Very good FM broadcast (mono).

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all thru the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”
This year’s Holiday Pops Concerts feature “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” written by Clement C Moore with projected illustrations by Jan Brett, narrated by special guests.

zootype noted:

This was recorded from an analog FM broadcast. There may be audible FM hiss and other flaws. I picked up a little interference and crackle during the encores.

They weren’t intended to be mono if they are - WCRB-FM is such a weak and noisy station that tuning it to a quiet spot probably actually tuned it to the mono signal [before 2011, I was using an ’80s-era tuner with a big analog tuning knob and I adjusted it until the loud hiss went away - that sometimes turned out to be the strong quiet mono signal].

Love Is Better Than Wine [A Zootype Project, 1CD]

Live at St Paul Church, Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts; December 2, 2012. Excellent WCRB-HD-FM broadcast December 22, 2013.

Thanks to zootype for sharing the show at Dime.

BEMF programme notes:

Sebastián de Vivanco [ca.1551-1622]: “Magnificat Octavi Toni”
Orlande Lassus: Motet: “Osculetur me osculo” [ca.15xx]
Orlande Lassus: “Missa Osculetur me” [ca.15xx]
Arvo Pärt: “I am the true vine” [1996]
Arvo Pärt: “Tribute to Caesar” [1997] [not broadcast]
Thomas Tallis: “Sancte Deus” [ca.1530-1540] [not broadcast]
Hieronymus Praetorius: “Magnificat Quinti Toni” [published 1622]

For this Boston Early Music Festival holiday appearance, the globally revered a cappella vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars have assembled a gorgeous collection of Renaissance and contemporary polyphony, bookended by two thrilling double-choir Magnificats. Spanish composer Vivanco’s richly textured “Magnificat Octavi Toni” opens the programme, followed by a breathtaking setting of “Osculetur me” by Lassus which is noted for is vivid word-setting and dramatic tensions.

The program continues with works by contemporary composer Arvo Pärt, whose intense study of early European polyphony informs compositions of transcendent purity, and the somber yet passionate “Sancte Deus” by the ensemble’s namesake Thomas Tallis. The festive celebration concludes with a Christmas Magnificat by Hieronymus Praetorius which features the composer’s settings of two famous Christmas carols, ‘In dulci jubilo’ and ‘Joseph lieber’, interleaved between its verses.

CAROLE KING AND FRIENDS
Christmas 2011 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Stoke Newington Town Hall, London, UK; December 6, 2011, first broadcast on BBC4, December 22, 2011. Excellent audio extracted from HDTV broadcast.

Recapture the mellow vibe of your favourite easy listening shows from the ’60s and ’70s with this festive feast of classics old and new. All-time great Carole King plays songs from her recent seasonal album, including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Sheffield crooner Richard Hawley mixes self-penned songs with his own take on Silent Night.

An imaginative bill is completed by the perky vocal harmonies of the Puppini Sisters doing Let It Snow, the dreamy widescreen sound of Brighton outfit the Mummers performing White Christmas and the velvet tones of latter day Nat King Cole, Brooklyn-based jazz vocalist Gregory Porter, crooning the Christmas Song.

Choose between your best cardigan or Rat Pack tuxedo, pour yourself an eggnog, get the chestnuts roasting, put your feet up and join the party!

Singer Joe Cocker, best known for his cover of The Beatles’ With A Little Help From My Friends, passed away on December 22, 2014 in Crawford, Colorado after a hard fought battle with small cell lung cancer. He was 70. The Sheffield-born singer had a career lasting more than 40 years, with hits including You Are So Beautiful and Up Where We Belong. His agent, Barrie Marshall, said Cocker was “simply unique”. Sir Paul McCartney said he was a lovely guy who “brought so much to the world”. Cocker’s friend, Rick Wakeman, keyboard player for the rock band Yes, called his rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends “sensational” and said: “He had a voice that was just unique.” Wakeman told BBC Radio 2: “The great thing is with someone like Joe is what they leave behind, and that will be with us for years and years.” Other musicians to have paid tribute to Cocker include Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, who tweeted: “Goodbye and God bless to Joe Cocker.”

Known for his gritty voice, Cocker - a former gas fitter - began his singing career in the pubs and clubs of Sheffield in the 1960s before hitting the big time. He was propelled to pop stardom when his version of With A Little Help From My Friends reached number one in 1968. He performed the song at Woodstock in New York state a year later. - BBC

THE KINKS
Devore, CA 1982 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the US Festival, Glen Helen Regional Park, Devore, CA; September 4, 1982. Fairly to very good audience recording.

According to Americana: The Kinks, The Road And The Perfect Riff, by Ray Davies:

The apogee of the Kinks’ resurgence was at the US Festival in San Bernardino in 1982. Davies was between albums and was uninterested in performing at the gig. He and Bill Graham settled the matter with a verbal promise that the band would go on at dusk and be the first band of the day to use lights. When Graham tried to shift their start time earlier, Davies clung to the promise. The consequent delay whipped the crowd into a frenzy, and the band performed with aplomb. Graham was fuming, but later offered to promote the band any time they came back to the west coast.

Thanks to flashback17 for sharing the show at Dime.

flashback17 noted:

This show is a must have! The energy is off the scales!

Davies: “I’m on a low budget. What did you say?” (He points the microphone at the crowd.)
Crowd: “LOW BUDGET !!”
Davies: (visibly impressed if not a little frightened) “You don’t have to shout.”

I was lucky to have worked two weeks at the 1st US Festival in 1982, although I wasn’t backstage at the time The Kinks were going on, the story was… Ray Davies was with Chrissie Hynde in his dressing room trailer and would not come out or talk to the stage director, until just before they went on, about 25 minutes late. Bill Graham went through the roof and was threatening to drop them from the lineup (obviously BS). They did go on, but Bill Graham tried to throw them off stage when their assigned time was used up. You can hear that didn’t go very well, they stopped the song, and then spent the rest of the set taunting Bill Graham… Bill Graham comes out to call for an encore, his voice rough from yelling backstage.

FYI:
Chrissie and Ray’s daughter, Natalie Ray Hynde, was born four months later, January 1983.
The Pretenders played the 1983 US Festival on May 30, 1983.

WARREN ZEVON
Philadelphia 1988 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Chestnut Cabaret, Philadelphia; although shared as Spring 1988, there is a good likelihood that it was on December 3,1988. Fairly to very good soundboard.

[Warren Zevon] just emerging from the erratic but well-received Sentimental Hygiene LP, has tried something different on this tour, which he’s calling the “Sic ‘Em Dogs on Me Tour.” It’s a sampler set, surveying Sentimental Hygiene, some early works, previews of the forthcoming LP Transverse City and arrangements of blues and country standards by Robert Johnson and Johnny Cash, among others. Zevon will play guitar, piano and harmonica; he’ll be supported by lap-steel player Dan Dugmore (who also plays pedal steel, banjo and dobro) and bassist Timothy B Schmidt. - philly.com (December 2, 1988)

Warren Zevon died of cancer in 2003.
