THE BAND
Washington 1976 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Carter Baron Amphitheater, Washington, DC; July 17, 1976. Complete King Biscuit Flower Hour show/reel. Very good to excellent FM stereo. Received this in a trade.

“This was The Band near the end of their run. They were just weeks away from their final concert (which became the overstuffed movie The Last Waltz) and Robbie Robertson left the band shortly after. This recording shows them as seasoned vets, playing material they’d been comfortable with for years.” Note: per the Bill Graham Archive, the actual date of this performance is now assumed to be 17 July 1976, not 16 August 1976 as stated in Band books and on King Biscuit Flower Hour bootlegs.

allmusic.com:

Given that this edition of the Band was on its last legs, it’s a pleasant surprise that this recording finds them sounding tight and enthusiastic; Robbie Robertson’s guitar work in particular is sharp and incisive, Garth Hudson’s keyboard work is marvelously evocative, and Levon Helm’s drumming and vocals are first-rate (Rick Danko and Richard Manuel are in fine voice as well). Unlike The Last Waltz, this captures the Band without special guests or a horn section, and many of these songs actually sound tighter and more powerful without the gingerbread, especially “The Weight” and “Up on Cripple Creek,” while Hudson’s keyboard showcase “The Genetic Method” gives one of the group’s secret weapons a chance to run wild to impressive effect.

DION & THE MAIN STREET GANG
New York 1978 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Bottom Line, New York, NY; September 11, 1978. Very good WNEW FM broadcast.

From steveislip.tripod.com:

On September 11, 1978 the band played to the Bottom Line club. The show included six old hits, six tracks from the then new album, Return of the Wanderer, and one, at that stage, unrecorded track.

Having said it was six old hits, the band was not about to play them according to the records and gave unique performances - melody changes - lyric changes - riffs where none existed before - five of which are a must for any Dion fans. The exception is “Teenager in Love” used for audience participation and therefore not a true reflection of what the band could do.

Even the Return of the Wanderer tracks differ quite substantially from the album cuts suggesting that each night’s performance was unique. You also get the impression that the band are saying they are Dion’s musical equal and Dion responds to their challenge.

The playfulness of the band is best demonstrated by their version of “Donna The Prima Donna”, where half way through they stray into Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” to see if they can catch the old man out front off guard - they fail, of course.

Perhaps the strangest song was the opening “Man in the Glass” - not a hit - not on the album - not planned for a performance that night - but it comes over well. This song had first appeared in December 1976 on the Cher TV show and was the flag post for Dion’s next change in his career - gospel music. In fact the performance by the band is far superior to the version that later appeared on Dion’s first Gospel album (Inside Job - Dayspring Day 4006 - 1981). This tape even today remains a prized possession in many a Dion fan’s collection. As one of the station announcers remarks, the band : “…blends ’50s, ’60s and ’70s seamlessly.”

GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS
Paris 1979 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Theatre Le Palace, Paris, France; March 25, 1979. Very good to excellent mono FM broadcast.

George Thorogood’s “high-energy boogie-blues” sound became a staple of 1980s rock radio, with tracks such as “Bad to the Bone,” “I Drink Alone”, “Move It on Over,” “Who Do You Love?” and “House Rent Boogie/One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, which became staples of classic rock radio. - wikipedia

A GT fan posted this comment at vivalesbootlegs:

The sound quality of this boot is pristine, crystal-clear, and well-balanced (instruments vs vocals). Taken from a French FM radio broadcast, all the DJ talk and station jungles are cut out, leaving nothing bu the good stuff. Lonesome George Thorogood & the Destroyers put in a kick-ass performance, and the crowd goes wild. I’ve got many GT boots in my collection, and I think that only one better than this would be GT @ the Cellar Door in Washington DC on 2.19.1979. This is a great recording and I highly recommend it!

PATTI SMITH
San Francisco 1995 [no label, 3CD]

Live at Slim’s, San Francisco, CA; September 4, 1995 (early and late shows). Very good soundboard.

On August 24, 2015 it was reported that the Malaysian police might expand their anti-riot arsenal to include taser guns for this weekend’s Bersih 4 rally if the situation warrants it. Bersih (Clean) has setup five points for Malaysians to gather before heading to Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square): Sogo, Pasar Seni, Dataran Maybank, Brickfields and the National Mosque. Starting time is 2 pm on August 29 and 30. Malaysia’s Independence Day falls on August 31.

But on August 25, the deputy inspector-general of police, Noor Rashid Ibrahim, backtracked and said taser guns will not be used this week. Kuala Lumpur City police chief Tajuddin Md Isa said police have denied the request for the organisers to hold the rally in the Dataran Merdeka area.

The Bersih 4 rally will be carried out in major cities in Malaysia, namely, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu in Sabah and Kuching in Sarawak. The rallies are organised by The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections or Bersih, which seeks to reform the current electoral system to ensure free, clean and fair elections. The rally organisers hope a good turnout will force the resignation of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak who has scandalised Malaysia with the revelation that he received RM2.6 billion in “donations” into his bank account from a Saudi donor.

Another day to go before the Bersih 4 gathering and those in power are doing all they can to discourage and deter people from attending. Read more here.

At the same time, Malaysians are staging Bersih 4 rallies on their own around the world, namely, Australia (Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne); Brazil (Rio De Janeiro); Canada; Columbia; China; France; Germany; Hong Kong; Ireland; Indonesia; Japan; Jordan; New Zealand; the Phillipines; Scotland; South Korea; Sweden; Switzerland; Taiwan; Thailand; England and the United States. (Click here for details).

No rallies will be organised in $ingapore. Those who are interested in joining the event in Kuala Lumpur can try to go to the rally using Bersih 4 buses (click here).

While not everyone can attend the Bersih 4 rallies, this Patti Smith show might be used as a rally soundtrack.

+ + + + +

Through most of the 1980s, Patti Smith was in semi-retirement from music. In 1988, she released Dream of Life, which included the song “People Have the Power”. Her husband, Fred Smith, died in November 1994 of a heart attack. Shortly afterward, Patti faced the unexpected death of her brother Todd. After the impact of these deaths, her friends Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Allen Ginsberg urged her to go back out on the road. She toured briefly with Bob Dylan in December 1995.

THE BAND
with Howard Johnson Horns
New York 1976 [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Palladium, New York, NY; September 18, 1976 (opening night of The Palladium, formerly the ‘Academy of Music’). Very good WBCN-FM broadcast.

Just two months before their farewell concert The Last Waltz, The Band performed an electric show at the iconic New York venue, The Palladium… It may have been one of The Band’s last live performances, but the passion in their music showed no sign of wavering. Their more famous and high profile goodbye concert performed alongside the good and great of contemporary music a couple of months henceforth would become the group’s swansong thanks to the film of the event made by Martin Scorsese, but this more intimate affair provides an excellent opportunity to hear just how great The Band were sounding live in a more traditional setting at this juncture.

A silver disc bootleg version of this show, Palladium Circles (1CD), has just surfaced. According to the notes, this was a WNEW-FM broadcast. Compared to the WBCN-FM show (below), the sound on Palladium Circles appears to have been equalised (it’s slightly softer).

Thanks to Hezekiahx2 for sharing the show in 2006.

Original notes:

I’ve had a number of messages asking me if I Eq’d these tapes or wondering how I got them to sound this good. I never EQ anything nor did I use noise reduction. When I first began taping a friend showed me how to “Bias’ my reels. This ended up being a ‘pain in the neck’ but also allowed me to make excellent dubs on different manufactured tapes (though the bulk of my collection is on Maxell). Then there was the 10 1/2″ reels. I only knew one other person who had a deck capable of playing back large reels. So… most of my 10 1/2″ reels have only been played back 3-4 times. None of my large reels saw heavy usage. They have stood up well over 30 yrs… and there are more to come…

This is my ‘Off Air’ master of The Band Palladium New York 9-18-76.

This broadcast is a little funky… the audience levels are brought up between songs (the crowd is rowdy) and the vocals are a tad weak at times. The stereo separation expands and contracts in a few places…

The WBCN IDs were not broken out as they overlapped the audience… they also contain a plug for Ampex Tape and Lechmeres. I’ll leave it up to you as to what you want to do with them. Believe it or not I had to do a reel flip during this show… it is only during the 2nd encore when the announcers are talking and did not edit out any music. (Anybody out there ever do a 10 1/2″ reel flip… it can be a little tricky). Though this has been uploaded before, my reels do sound excellent… and I thought there would be a few folks that would enjoy this quality! Hezekiahx2

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART
Crazy Little Things [Triangle PYCD080, 1CD]

Live at the Cowtown Ballroom, Kansas City, MO; April 22, 1974. Excellent FM broadcast.

Don Van Vliet: Five days before the tour - a tour all over the world, starting in America - they just dropped me. It was terrible, awful; I learned them the music note by note at the time, and just before such a big tour they cut the collaboration because they think they are essential. I like this new band very much. these guys already could play from the start, that’s important.
[Bert Jansen: THE CAPTAIN! Captain Beefheart: Magie Voor Eenzamen Of Voor Het Volk? OOR, June 19, 1974]

Barry Alfonso: Scrambling to put a group together in time for a tour only a few weeks away, DiMartino hired a lounge-circuit rock combo down in Hollywood to be an ersatz Magic Band. Among these musicians was keyboardist Michael Smotherman, who, like his bandmates, had little or no idea who Captain Beefheart was. “Talk about worlds colliding,” he remembers. “We started practicing these songs of Don’s, things like Big Eyed Beans From Venus, and they seemed totally alien, totally foreign to our ways of thinking. At the time, we were all guys in leather jackets and tight jeans, and we treated Don with this slightly patronizing attitude. He was, like, this old kook to us. We truly didn’t know shit.”

Somehow, Beefheart managed to teach these musicians his songs, and they toured together in Europe and the US into the fall of ‘74.

Magic Band #29: “Tragic Live Band”
Captain Beefheart Don Van Vliet - vocals, harmonica, saxophone, clarinet
Fuzzy Fuscaldo - guitar
Ty Grimes - drums
Del Simmons - tenor saxophone, flute
Dean Smith - guitar
Michael Smotherman - keyboards
Paul Uhrig - bass

Roger Ames: So there’s a New Magic Band with a keyboard player from Buckwheat, a drummer from Ricky Nelson’s band (Ty Grimes), a bass player from Bobbie Gentry’s old band (Paul Uhrig), and a throwback sax player who led his own band in Dixieland days. Dean Smith is on lead, Fuzzy Fuscaldo on rhythm.
[Roger Ames: CaptainBeefheart. People Weekly. September 1974]

Steve Lake: These people being 54-year-old ex-Charlie Parker clarinet and-all-other-reeds-man Del Simmons, guitarist Dean Smith and Fuzzy Fuscaldo (the latter recently with Curtis Mayfield), keyboard player Michael Smotherman from the now defunct Buckweat, bassist Paul Uhrig from Bobbie Gentry’s group (!), and drummer Ty Grimes, fresh from Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band. Impeccable enough credentials for the average Los Angeles session, one imagines, but hardly the boys to get to grips with Big Eyed Beans From Venus or Ah Feel Like Ahcid.
[Steve Lake: Music is A Poor Second Every Time. Melody Maker. June 1974]

PETE STANLEY AND WIZZ JONES
Glasgow 1966 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Mary Stewart’s Cottage, Balmore Road, Milngavie, Glasgow, Scotland; 1966. Fairly to very good soundboard?

Here’s one for the bluegrass fan.

One of England’s best-known banjo players, Pete Stanley is known for his unique mellow tone, acquired by using bare fingernails rather than metal fingerpicks. Although he recorded two albums - Banjo Bounce and Picking And Singing - in the ’70s with guitarist and vocalist Roger Knowles, Stanley has made his greatest contribution to music as a skilled banjo builder. - allmusic.com

- wikipediaRaymond Ronald Jones, better-known as Wizz Jones, is an English acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter. He has been performing since the late 1950s and recording from 1965 to the present. He has worked with many of the notable guitarists of the English folk music revival, such as John Renbourn and Bert Jansch. In 1966, Pete Stanley and Wizz Jones released Sixteen Tons Of Bluegrass.

Thanks to kneesfudd for sharing the tracks at Dime.

kneesfudd noted:

- Very fine quality for its vintage.
- Warts: Has some dropouts. Almost complete five-second dropout in #8 (now spliced).
- Tape undated but ISB Balmore tapes dated Oct ‘66-Feb ‘67. Wizz says he and Pete stopped touring in late ‘66.
- Not all recorded in one go. Deck was shut off between some songs.
- Seems this is an excerpt of a longer version of these tapes.
- Tape surfaced along with the “Balmore Hoard” of Incredible String Band recordings.
