MP3: Download the Who’s 5-Volume “1969 Soundboard Tapes” Box

The tapes Pete Townshend didn’t want you to hear….

By Uncle Blurt

Everyone knows that the Who’s Live at Leeds is one of the greatest ever live albums, but what some might not know is that originally, the band had soundman Bob Pridden recording the shows on its 1969 American tour in anticipation of culling a live album from the tapes. Pete Townshend, though, decided he didn’t like the results and had the tapes destroyed—or so he thought. A number of them did survive, and even though the official Leeds album was released, documenting a show the band did after getting back home to England, some of the mooted material wound up on such bootlegs as Accept No Substitute, Pure Rock Theatre, Live at Leeds Rejects, etc. (Pure Rock Theatre in particular was a terrific sounding boot, released in ’96 by the astute archivists at the Hiwatt label.)

So anway, the nicely-nicknamed “Prof. Stoned” has apparently been compiling and remastering as many of those surviving tapes as possible in order to create what he is called The Fall 1969 oundboard Tapes, a 5-volume collection (plus a 6th disc, a “highlights” anthology). It’s now available for free download over at the Big O zine, along with downloadable art and liner notes. Below is the tracklisting for the highlights release, along with the links to each of the five volumes. If you’re a fan of the ‘oo, this note’s for you, bubba.

Everything from the first weekend with the exception of The Who and Roger Walters, both of which will soon be available.

By Uncle Blurt

Call it Oldchella if you prefer, but last weekend’s Desert Trip definitely got the troops motivated out of their walkers and wheelchairs – even body surfing, in fact, as the Rolling Stones, the Who, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul MCartney, Roger Waters, and the Rolling Stones all kicked out the jams. It starts up again tonight through Sunday, so for those of you unable to attend this weekend or the previous one, the good folks at Big O zine have kindly provided free MP3 downloads of several of the Oct. 7-9 performances. Included is downloadable artwork as well. Below, take a look at the setlists, and follow the links to the download pages.

MP3: Download Dwight Yoakam’s 9/21/16 Americanafest Show

dynashvillefr

Promoting new album and celebrating the venerable A-fest tradition!

By Uncle Blurt

Seems like all our rowdy friends hotfooted it over to Nashville last week for the annual Americanafest, leaving us to tend the Tarheel homefires all by our lonesome. What happened over there? Well, at least we got updates via Twitter and Facebook from some of those rowdy friends, or we would have no earthly idea, as the national music media, us included, appears to have been largely out of the loop. (Rumor has it that Jason Isbell was celebrated at the Americana Music Association awards ceremony, and that T Bone Burnett gave an impassioned keynote speech, so that’s a good sign.)

Luckily, though, a slew of great performances have surfaced online so us normal citizens can check out the tunes, which of course is the stuff that counts; YouTube was blowing up this weekend in particular. And the ever-diligent archivists at the Big O zine kindly posted MP3s of Dwight Yoakam’s live webcast.

MP3: Dwight Yoakam – Mercy Lounge, Nashville, Tennessee; September 21, 2016

It’s a pretty smokin’ set, with Mr. Y doing choice tracks from his bluegrass epic Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars, including his cover of “Purple Rain.” The setlist is below.

The Wilco Empire strikes back, yo.

By Uncle Blurt

Yes I did have a very nice vacation, thanks for asking. My only regret is that I was not in town to catch Wilco’s August 20 show in Minneapolis; I’ve attended at least 40 Wilco shows over the years and was hoping to crack that big four-oh. Next tour though. Meanwhile, as the show was broadcast over the radio, it’s now available as a free MP3 download over at Big O.

MP3: WilcoHall’s Island, Minneapolis, MN; August 20, 2016

It’s a smokin’ show at that, full of fan faves along with a good chunk of latest album Star Wars (I have to remember to go out and grab a copy of that as I’ve only heard bits and pieces on Spotify thus far). And the recording is outstanding, so check it out, along with the tracklisting below. Meanwhile, go HERE to read a review of and see photos from the group’s Kansas City show, written by longtime contributor Danny Phillips.

Show is pure Al, including a Mott the Hoople cover…

By Uncle Blurt

Since it’s no secret we here at BLURT are massive Alejandro Escovedo fans, let’s just cut to the chase: a couple of weeks ago he and his latest combo (he calls it The Alejandro Escovedo Experience, fittingly enough) played a small venue in Texas and now the diligent archivists over at Big O zine have posted it in MP3 format so all of us can enjoy it.

MP3: Alejandro EscovedoDosey Doe Music Café, Conroe, Texas; July 29, 2016.

Lineup:
Alejandro Escovedo – vocals, guitar
Brian Standefer- cello
Sean Giddings – keyboards
Scott Laningham – drums
Daniel Durham – bass

The setlist, below, speaks for itself. His between-song patter is pretty great as well. Don’t miss his version of “All the Young Dudes,” either. Big O also has downloadable artwork should you want to cache ‘n’ carry the tunes.

MP3: Download the 7/29/16 David Bowie Prom Tribute Concert

Bowie

Ground control to major John – shape up, sir.

By Uncle Blurt

Last weekend in London, Berlin’s musical collective s t a r g a z e and its Artistic Director André de Ridder mounted a special tribute concert billed as the David Bowie Prom 2016. Joining the collective were John Cale, Marc Almond, Neil Hannon, Conor O’Brien, Laura Mvula, Paul Buchanan, Jherek Bischoff, Anna Calvi and Amanda Palmer, and everyone had a grand old time interpreting the late icon’s music. Now the entire show is available as MP3 downloads over at Big O Zine, along with printable artwork.

MP3 – Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; July 29, 2016.

The sound quality is uniformly excellent as the show was also broadcast over the airwaves via the BBC. The full tracklist is below – Amanda Palmer apparently was the standout performer, while curiously enough, John Cale was not received all that favorably by the critics in attendance.

RDHswissFr

Band touring in support of what is reportedly (?) their final album.

By Uncle Blurt

While Radiohead’s latest album A Moon Shaped Pool is not necessarily generating the types of rave reviews the UK band is accustomed to, the group still can be mesmerizing in concert. Their July 2 show was broadcast over the radio, and now you can grab MP3s of the gig as a free download, complete with printable art, courtesy the sharp archivists at Big O zine.

MP3: Radiohead: OpenAir St Gallen, Sittertobel, St Gallen, Switzerland; July 2, 2016.

The show is missing “Exit Music,” which was performed but not broadcast, while three other songs were not broadcast in their entirety, so the compiler of the MP3s has subbed in versions of those three from other broadcast sources. The full tracklisting is below.

Funny birds, indeed…

By Uncle Blurt

While I don’t think I could ever bring myself to attend the annual Glastonbury Festival in England – been there (twice in the ’80s and ’90s), done that (sitting in the mud for nearly 24 hours ain’t a lot of fun no matter what drugs you are on) – but thanks to technology I don’t have to. instead, I can sit down in my La-Z-Boy in my air-conditioned double-wide and check out the audio and video of select G-bury performances. Such as Mercury Rev last week, currently touring in support of The Light In You. It was recorded from an HDTV webcast so the sound is excellent.
