Aerosmith - Alohasmith 1983 (Soundaboard Remaster)

A new Aerosmith show on Soundaboard, but widely circulated under the title of "Alohasmith!".
So from a copy of it that sounded too dry for me here's an exclusive Soundaboard remaster with enhanced sound, and at least to my ears it got better...
This was recorded at the Blaisdell Center Arena in Honolulu, during the Aerosmith phase without Perry and Whitford, and with the lineup that recorded Rock in a Hard Place that I still think is a very good album.

Sound Quality: 9.5

JOHN NEMETH Live Ratingen feat Junior Watson 2007

Well you know you have a great band line up when you have to put Junior Watson on Bass!

John Németh 
(born 1976) is an American electric blues and soul harmonicist, singer, and songwriter. He has recorded seven albums since 2002, having also backed Junior Watson and Anson Funderburgh. He has opened for Robert Cray, Keb' Mo', and Earl Thomas.
Allmusic noted that he is a "vocalist with great range, ability, and soulfulness, Németh had also developed into a top-notch blues harmonica player..." In 2013 alone, he was nominated five times for a Blues Music Award, making nine such nominations in total.
 Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with his dazzling national debut album (Magic Touch), John Németh has wowed critics and audiences alike with his riveting vocals and harmonica prowess.  The Philadelphia Inquirer testified to his standing in the current music scene with the comment, "Classic soul and R&B styles have been revitalized by artists such as James Hunter, Eli 'Paperboy' Reed, and Sharon Jones.  You can include John Németh on any list of the best of them."
On his latest release, Name The Day!, the dynamic soul sensation continues to reinvigorate vintage American rhythm and blues with his uncanny ability to skillfully blend retro and modern blues and soul into compelling music that is simultaneously old and new.

This is a 10 soundwise!

Lazy Roosters Live At Clarion (2008) Sweden

Lazy Roosters is a Swedish blues band formed in 2006 located in the "mountain country" of central Sweden called Bergslagen, Örebro county. Their style incorporates both Chicago and Texas blues, both covers and own songs with lyrics in English. The band won the 2008 Scandinavian Blues Contest at Monsteras Roots & Blues Festival, Sweden. Lazy Roosters mostly plays the local blues scene in and around Örebro city or county, occasionally in other major cities in Sweden or at blues festivals around the country

this is a decent crowd recording.  Crowd noise in between the tracks is a little annoying
Show is really good so even if Im not a fan of this type of recordings I decided to post anyway
Lazy Roosters only have 1 official album, but there is a few other live recordings around

Robert Lucas & Canned Heat LIVE Bonn, Germany, November 4, 2007

Former Canned Heat frontman Robert Lucas, a skilled slide-guitarist and harp player, died on Sunday, November 23rd, 2008 from an apparent drug overdose, according to his manager Skip Taylor. The Long Beach, California native was just 46 years old.
Lucas first became known to blues fans as a member of guitarist Bernie Pearl's late-1970s band, originally playing harmonica behind artists like Big Joe Turner, Lowell Fulson, Percy Mayfield and other West Coast blues and R&B singers. Lucas worked on his skills for years before launching his own band, Luke & the Locomotives, in 1986.
Lucas hooked up with boogie-rock kings Canned Heat in 1994 as singer, guitarist and harp player, and would first appear on the band's 1996 Blues Band album, the last featuring founding member and guitarist Henry Vestine.
Between 1994 and 2008, Lucas served two stints as the band's frontman, touring the world in front of the band and contributing songs, instrumentation and vocals to recordings like 1999's Boogie 2000 and the band's 2007 Christmas album.

PINETOP PERKINS w/ the Tony O Band - Live 1994.10.30 Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Syracuse, NY

 Pinetop Perkins was one of the last great Mississippi bluesmen.  He began playing blues in the late 1920s, and is widely regarded as one of the best – and certainly most enduring – blues pianists. He has forged a style that has influenced three generations of piano players, and continues to be the yardstick by which great blues pianists are measured.

Born Willie Perkins in Belzoni, Mississippi in 1913, Pinetop started out playing guitar and piano at house parties and honky-tonks, but dropped the guitar in the 1940s after sustaining a serious injury in his left arm. He worked primarily in the Mississippi Delta throughout the 1930s and ‘40s, spending three years with Sonny Boy Williamson on the King Biscuit Time radio show on KFFA in Helena, Arkansas. Pinetop also toured extensively with slide guitar player Robert Nighthawk and backed him on an early Chess session. After briefly working with B.B. King in Memphis, Perkins barnstormed the South with Earl Hooker during the early ‘50s. The pair completed a session for Sam Phillips’ famous Sun Records in 1953. It was at this session that he recorded his version of “Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie,” a song originally written and recorded by pianist Clarence “Pinetop” Smith – the influential blues pianist who had died from a gunshot wound at age 24 in 1929. Although referred to as “Pinetop” when he played on King Biscuit in the 40s, it was his sensational version of this song that secured his lifelong nickname.

Although he enjoyed success as a solo artist since the 1980s, Pinetop was known for holding down the piano chair in the great Muddy Waters Band for twelve years during the pinnacle of Muddy’s career. Replacing Otis Spann in 1969, Pinetop helped shape the Waters sound and anchored Muddy’s memorable combo throughout the seventies with his brilliant piano solos. In 1980, Pinetop and other members of Muddy’s crew struck out on their own and formed the Legendary Blues Band – a group that recorded two records for Rounder and toured extensively, culling several GRAMMY® nominations.
