Gary Clark Jr. - Lisbon, Portugal (2014)

Gary Clark Jr.played on May 29 during this year's edition of the Rock In Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
His set was around one hour of duration and a good surprise for many that were part of a crowd of 90,000 that in its majority was waiting for the Rolling Stones...
This is the audio recorded from the TV broadcast, the initial seconds of the first track have some talk-over but from then on it's all music.
A good appetizer for Live - The new album featuring the best live performances from Gary.
New and highly recommended live album.

Awesome set from 2 of the greatest of the original Chicago Blues scene! These two legends performed together for years all over the world.

Mr Guy still is around and plays as strong as ever. His last studio effort Rhythm & Blues showcase the 78 years old master at his best.

Los Lobos Live in Gemany 1987

 Los Lobos, Spanish for "The Wolves", are a multiple Grammy Award–winning American Chicano rock band from East Los Angeles, California. Their music is influenced by rock and roll, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues, brown-eyed soul, and traditional music such as cumbia, boleros and norteños.
I have been following this band since their first recording in the 80ies and they are truly one of the best blend of styles you will find! They won best live act in America award a few times and in the late 80ies Rolling Stones magazine named them the best kept secret in the U.S.
I dont have much infos on the show  others than it was somewhere in Germany in 1987
sorry no flacs  but great MP3 quality. More of them coming up soon!

Enjoy! and support these artists!

Tinsley Ellis Live At Jazzbones Tacoma, WA August 2009

Sound Quality:  9.5
Source: Soundboard

 A hard-rocking, high-voltage blues guitarist most often compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tinsley Ellis is hardly one of the legions of imitators that comparison might imply. Schooled in a variety of Southern musical styles, Ellis draws not only from fiery Vaughan-style blues-rock, but also Texas bluesmen like Freddie King and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, the soulful blues of B.B. King, the funky grit of Memphis soul, and numerous other electric bluesmen. Ellis has been praised in many quarters for the relentless, storming intensity of his sound, and criticized in others for his relative lack of pacing and dynamic contrast (he's also been dubbed a much stronger guitarist than vocalist). Yet no matter which side of the fence one falls on, it's generally acknowledged that Ellis remains a formidable instrumentalist and a genuine student of the blues.

 As always, Support this artist by seeing him live and buying official stuff. !
