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.

Roy Buchanan LIVE Stanhope, NJ, 1988-06-30

Roy Buchanan (September 23, 1939 – August 14, 1988) was an American guitarist and blues musician. A pioneer of the Telecaster sound, Buchanan worked as both a sideman and solo artist, with two gold albums early in his career,  and two later solo albums that made it on to the Billboard chart. Despite never having achieved stardom, he is still considered a highly influential guitar player. Guitar Player praised him as having one of the "50 Greatest Tones of all Time."

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.
