Midnight Oil Unplugged Calgary Canada 1993

Mike Morgan & The Crawl Live at Warehouse of Blues 10_24_97

 Great soundboard recording !  file is at 192 kbs
 25 tracks here pretty much the whole show !

"When guitarist Mike Morgan and his band, The Crawl, released their 1990 Black Top debut, Raw & Ready, the band quickly went from local Texas phenomenon to nationally recognized blues stars. With each subsequent release, Morgan's powerful guitar playing and The Crawl's road-proven stage shows made for one of the blues' great success stories.
Mike Morgan and The Crawl's fiery stage shows drew rave reviews from critics and left fans open-mouthed in amazement. With a healthy dose of hard driving Texas blues, a touch of horn-fat Southern soul, and a splash of old-fashioned roots rock, Mike Morgan and The Crawl are back and ready to take their aggressive, innovative blues to fans from coast to coast. The Crawl kicks out some lethally propulsive rhythms behind Morgan's barbwire-jagged guitar."

Roomful Of Blues - Live At Bimbo's 365 Club, 2-03-1996 1996

Roomful Of Blues - Live At Bimbo's 365 Club, San Francisco, CA, 1996-02-03
Roomful Of Blues is an American blues and swing revival big band based in Rhode Island. With a recording career that spans over 40 years.
They play a blend of swing, rock and roll, jump blues, boogie-woogie and soul. They have had many different musicians come and go through out the years. They got their start in Westerly, Rhode Island in 1967. This recording came saying it had Ronnie earl, but listening to the introductions, you will hear them say Chris Vachon on guitar. This is a very enjoyable blues show with a big horn section and some fine blues guitar and harmonica. If you like the blues I recommend this recording. I made the cover based on the album cover of the album that they were  promoting at the time of the concert called Turn It On Turn It Up.

DOUBLE DECKER: PAUL BUTTERFIELD Live at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA; December 30, 1973. Live in Helsinki 1969

Who said white boys can't get the Blues?

Sausalito 1973
Live at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA; December 30, 1973. Very good radio broadcast; slight hiss. Plus bonus tracks.

The blues has long been associated with heartache and heartbreak and currently provides a poignant soundtrack to the sufferings in the world - from the oppressed people in the Middle East to the victims of natural disasters in New Zealand, China and Japan (and as history professor Gary Leupp wrote in our cover story this week, even man-made ones in Japan).

At the same time, there is a yearning and energy in these tracks that, hopefully, they will provide comfort, solace and encouragement to someone, somewhere.

From the mid-’60s to the early ’70s, the late harmonica player and vocalist, seen by some as “the American musician most responsible for introducing urban blues to rock audiences”, had entertained fans with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band but in 1973, he disbanded his band (basically trimmed off the horn section) and formed Better Days.

“It was definitely an adventurous band for the time,” (Amos) Garrett recalls. “It was definitely the furthest Paul ever got away from the Midwest, Chicago harmonica or horn band sound. That band was a very unique rhythm & blues band. It incorporated blues influences of Paul’s, but it had an acoustic, Delta influence of Geoffrey’s (Muldaur) and a heavy New Orleans feel from Ronnie (Barron). My playing was just so strange; it kind of fit in everywhere, in every context. Plus the fact it had four vocalists. And everything was a group decision in terms of material, but we leaned toward new songs. We loved Bobby’s (Charles) writing in particular.”

The Electric Flag on Disc
A Review of Studio and Bootleg Recordings
 By David Dann
full review in attached notepad

This performance likely comes from a casual Sunday afternoon show at the Carousel Ballroom. The Electric Flag shared the stage with Erma Franklin, Aretha’s sister, and – with the exception of Michael Bloomfield – provided backup for her during her set.

The Carousel appearance captures the Flag at a moment when the band was beginning to come apart from the pressures of commercial expectations, personality conflicts and drugs. Despite its uneven performance, however, the group displays its exceptional drive and musicianship – and its penchant for experimentation.

Neil Young And The Blue Notes - Kind Of Blue 1987/1988

Neil Young And The Blue Notes

Neil Young 
established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as "one of rock and roll's greatest songwriters and performers". He was inducted into the Hall of Fame twice, first as a solo artist in 1995, and second as a member of Buffalo Springfield in 1997. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through to the 21st century, he never stopped writing, recording, and performing; his official catalog only represented a portion of his work, since he kept countless tapes of unreleased songs in his vaults. This release includes live performances of Neil Young at the Canadian National Exhibition Grandstand, Toronto, August 18, 1988; Santa Cruz, November 2, 1987; The World, Nyc, April 19, 1988; Jones Beach, August 27, 1988; Auburn Hills, September 4, 1988.
