Midnight Oil - Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, London 1993

Today we have the Australian band Midnight Oil on a different contribution by our friend The Rippin' Frog.

Midnight Oil won eleven Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards during its career, including induction into the Hall of Fame in 2006. At the induction, ARIA chairman Denis Handlin described Midnight Oil as true legends that always led by example in a uniquely Australian way with music that is powerful, uncompromising, inspiring, entertaining and enduring.

Their highly politically/eco engaged themes are still timeless and  as relevant as ever!

This great set would be as close to "Unpluged" as these guys could be!

Seen them in the 80ies  one of the best live act ever !

01 - Feeding Frenzy
02 - The Dead Heart
03 - My Country
04 - Blue Sky Mine
05 - Sell My Soul
06 - Truganini

Hubert Sumlin & David Johansen - Howlin' For Hubert (Live)

Soundaboard has the Blues again, thanks to the Rippin' Frog.

Hubert SUMLIN with David JOHANSEN – Howlin’ for Hubert (Live) 2004
Live, Chicago Blues Festival June 10,2004

David JOHANSEN ex NY dolls !

Hubert Sumlin, now 78, is used to playing concerts like “Howlin’ for Hubert,” at the Jazz Standard through this weekend.
He was the guitarist who played the silvery leads on Howlin’ Wolf’s great Chicago blues records of the 1950s and ’60s.
On Thursday every tune was from Howlin’ Wolf’s songbook, and Wolf’s name scarcely needed to be mentioned. It’s a Hubert Sumlin gig now.
It helps if Wolf’s voice can be invoked, though, and that explained the presence of David Johansen. Mr. Johansen, who has worked with Mr. Sumlin before, is naturally comical with his baritone. His version of Howlin’ Wolf got at the broad humor that was always there, no matter how many times Wolf has been compounded into a feral myth.
Mr. Johansen also has a healthy sense of shtick: In songs like “Three Hundred Pounds of Joy” and “Who’s Been Talkin’,” he was full of eager petulance, a skinny man trying to fill out an extra-large suit.
But the real action arrived a little later. The guitarist James Blood Ulmer joined the band halfway through the set, and now there were three guitars, including that of Jimmy Vivino, of late-night television’s Max Weinberg 7, who acted as  the evening’s musical director. And at the luckiest moments, there were triple-deckered guitar solos through slow music, showing completely different approaches to the instrument.
Mr. Sumlin — who sang, in a thin voice, on one song, “Sitting on Top of the World” — plucked his leads with his fingers, mostly restricting himself to the three higher strings. He was playing a Fender Stratocaster, and he made the most of that guitar’s vocal-sounding tones, with glottal stops and throaty cries.
