Alice Cooper Group - Electric Ballroom 1972

Well the end of the year is upon us. So, why not rock out to some good old Alice Cooper Group. I've had quite a few people asking for some old school Cooper. Here is a soundboard, from possibly one of the last shows from the Killer's Tour. The exact date is not none. The sound quality is not to bad. A little tape hiss, and some distortion here and there. A couple songs have a few seconds missing. Overall, it is still very enjoyable, and definitely worth having. Happy New Years.

Set list:

INTRO/BE MY LOVER
YOU DRIVE ME NERVOUS
YEAH YEAH YEAH
I'M EIGHTEEN
HALO OF FLIES
DEAD BABIES
KILLER
SCHOOL'S OUT

Neil Young - Worchester, MA 12/13/2008

I've been listening to this concert for a couple of weeks now. And it tickles my ears happy.
Frank Z does it again with an amazing audience recording. I can't thank him enough. Fortunately, I've been able to hear almost all the concert on this leg of Neil's tour. And for some reason this one just grabs me. The sound is really great, but there are others that sound just as good, if not better. Maybe it's because it's in Massachusetts. God damn if I'm not a true blue Masshole. Either way the set list rocks, the show sounds great, and Massholes know how to drink their liquor. So, get yourself a twelve pack and enjoy this rocking show.

Set List:

Love And Only Love
Hey Hey, My My
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Powderfinger
Spirit Road
Cortez The Killer
Cinnamon Girl
Oh, Lonesome Me
Mother Earth

Neil Young - BBC 1971


Well, I hope everybody is having a Happy Holiday. With the release of "Sugar Mountain," which is part of Neil's Archive series. I thought this would be a good time to share this BBC recording. It has a similar feel, to that of The Canterbury House show. The recording shows it's age with a little bit of tape hiss. But I don't find it to be bothersome. So, if you would like a nice quite moment with Neil, here is your chance. And if you haven't yet picked up part three of Neil's Archive serious get on it. The sound quaility is absolutely amazing. Neil is quite funny with his stone y chatter between each song. They also give you a sneak peak into the Archive Box set, that is to be released at some point in 2009.

Set List:

1 Out on the weekend
2 Old man
3 Journey through the past
4 Heart of gold
5 Don't let it bring you down
6 A man needs a maid
7 Love in mind
8 See the girl dance

Sigur Rós - Icelandic Opera House 6.12.1999

This is an amazing sounding concert, taken straight from the soundboard. I've been meaning to put this up for awhile. Of all the concerts I have by this band, this is the one I always come back too.

Ray Davies - Variety Playhouse, Atlanta GA. 12-2-08

What an amazing show. I had a great time, and hopefully everybody that I encouraged to go did as well. Ray did not disappoint with this powerful acoustic set. His request for audience participation brought a nice lite heart ed atmosphere to the night. And my drunk ass was in full swing. Just thinking about the night brings a smile to my face.

And the best part is now we can relive it over and over thanks to Thomas. He was nice enough to share this great sounding recording. Man, I can't thank him enough. He did a great job. The sound is pretty true to the night. And you get to hear all the banter between songs, which is great. Mainly, because I was having trouble focusing on that. The only minor thing with this recording is he missed the first three songs. Which is not that big deal. I'm just glad to be able to listen to this again with a bit clearer head. Not too clear mind you.

Set List.

Elmer Valentine
Art Streiber
Elmer Valentine on the Sunset Strip in 2000 across from two other establishments he helped start: the Rainbow Bar & Grill and Roxy Theatre.

Elmer Valentine, co-founder of Whisky a Go Go, dies at 85

By Dennis McLellan
December 7, 2008
Elmer Valentine, co-founder of the Whisky a Go Go, the legendary live rock showcase on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood that gave birth to the go-go dancer phenomenon of the 1960s, has died. He was 85.

Valentine, who also co-founded the Roxy Theatre in the early '70s, died Wednesday at his home in Studio City after suffering from various ailments the last four years, said music mogul Lou Adler, his longtime friend and business partner.

A former Chicago cop who arrived in Los Angeles in 1960, Valentine was co-owner of P.J.'s, a successful West Hollywood restaurant-nightclub, when he sold his interest and took a trip to Europe in 1963.

While in Paris, he visited a discotheque and was so impressed by the large, enthusiastic crowd of young dancers that he decided to borrow the disco's name and start his own club back home in Los Angeles.

After lining up three partners, Valentine launched the Whisky a Go Go in January 1964. The club was an immediate hit, with headliner Johnny Rivers attracting celebrity-studded sold-out audiences.

"For much of the '60s and early '70s, Elmer Valentine's Whisky was the most important rock club in town," former Times pop music critic Robert Hilburn wrote in 1977. "It was an incubation spot for local bands and a showcase for highly touted visiting groups."

The Byrds, the Doors, the Kinks, the Who, Them, Love and Buffalo Springfield were among the bands to play there.

"The Whisky was mecca," Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist for the Doors, told The Times in 2003. "It was the place in Los Angeles. It was probably the place in the entire country."

Adler, who first met Valentine in 1964 and produced Rivers' live Whisky a Go Go album, said the Whisky "was a template for what rock clubs would be, not only in Los Angeles but across the United States and around the world."

"Up until that point, rock acts did not have that kind of venue. It drew a lot of celebrities, and the celebrities drew people to come watch the celebrities." Along with drawing such stars as Steve McQueen, Jayne Mansfield and Cary Grant, the Whisky drew national media attention, including from Life magazine and Jack Paar, who did a segment for his weekly comedy-variety program at the club.

Part of the attraction was the mini-skirted go-go girls, a contribution to pop culture that happened by accident.

As recounted in a 2000 Vanity Fair article on Valentine, he arranged to have a female DJ play records between Rivers' sets so patrons could continue dancing. But because there wasn't enough room on the floor for a DJ booth, he had a glass-walled booth mounted high above the floor.

To publicize the girl-DJ gimmick, a public contest was held for the job. But when the young winner called Valentine on the night of the opening to tearfully say her mother forbade her from doing it, Valentine recruited the club's cigarette girl, Patty Brockhurst.

"She had on a slit skirt, and we put her up there," Valentine told Vanity Fair. "So she's up there playing the records. She's a young girl, so while playing 'em, all of a sudden she starts dancing to 'em. It was a dream. It worked."

Valentine quickly hired two more girl dancers, one of whom, Joanie Labine, according to the Vanity Fair article, "designed the official go-go-girl costume of fringed dress and white boots."

The Whisky a Go Go "spurred the entire go-go period," said Adler. "The advertising agencies picked up on the phrase and everything became 'go-go.' "

The way Valentine ran the Whisky -- and his relationships with the acts -- was nothing like the stereotypical hard-nosed nightclub owners in the movies, Adler said. "Being in that club was like heaven for him," said Adler. "He loved rock music, and he loved the musicians. He had a special relationship with all of them."

Valentine was born in Chicago on June 16, 1923. After serving as an Army Air Forces mechanic stationed in England during World War II, he joined the Chicago police force.

"I left Chicago [in 1960] because my wife dumped me, and I was flipped out," he told Vanity Fair. But, as the magazine noted, he was also having a bit of trouble on the job: He was on the take from the Mob.

"It was a way of life," Valentine said.

Although he was indicted for extortion, the magazine reported, he was never convicted. And once Valentine arrived in Los Angeles, he had a backup career plan: "I used to moonlight running nightclubs for the outfit. For gangsters."

In 1965, Valentine launched the Trip, a small, short-lived rock club on the Strip. In 1972, he, Adler, Mario Maglieri and others started the Rainbow Bar & Grill on the Strip; a year later, Valentine, Adler and others founded the Roxy.

Adler, who bought into the Whisky in the late '70s, said Valentine sold his interest in the club in the '90s but retained an ownership in the Rainbow and the Roxy until his death.

Valentine, who was divorced, is survived by his daughter, Kimberly Valentine; and a grandson. Plans for a memorial service are pending.

McLellan is a Times staff writer.

J.J. Cale's Birthday. 12/5/1938

The man is seventy and he's still rocking. Better than most half his age. To celebrate this great musician I have two different sets to share. The first being JJ Cale Left (c)over Jams. This album sounds amazing. It's all different unreleased versions of some very recognizable songs. If you are unfamiliar with his music, he's been covered by many big named artist. The second recording is from December 1971. This is a live recording Pacific High Recorders San Francisco, CA. It is an FM Broadcast that maybe old, but still sounds great. It's one of the earliest live recordings I have. It mostly consists of some good blues rocking instrumentals. Why this guy isn't more well known escapes me. I'm sure after listening to these recordings you'll ask yourself the same question.

Happy Birthday Mr. Cale. Thank you for all the great music.

The Faces reunite for 2009 comeback tour

According to Ronnie Wood, not only are they rehearsed and ready to go, they may even enlist Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to play bass

Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood of the Faces

It seems they remember the songs after all. Ronnie Wood has confirmed rumours that the Faces will reunite, promising a comeback tour in 2009. They may even bring a Red Hot Chili Pepper along for the ride.

"It's like no time has passed by," Wood told Rolling Stone magazine this week. "We had a few rehearsals last week and we're ready to go."

Though original bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997, the Faces have had no shortage of interest when it comes to low-note plinkety-plunkers. Conrad Korsch, Rod Stewart's touring bassist, sat in on the rehearsals - but "there's a lot of guest bass players [who] want to do it," Wood said, "including Flea".

Though we're not sure we want to hear a "funky" version of Ooh La La, Wood has even hinted at new studio material. "Rod wants me to write a load of new stuff for him," he said. Wood has a fair bit of free time – there's no word "when [or] where" the Rolling Stones will next get together.

Though the Faces have yet to announce any tour dates, it's just a matter of juggling itineraries, Wood said. "We just have to sort out [dates and locations] and drop all of the management egos. We know we can do it. It's just a matter of getting everyone's availability sometime next year."

I hope everyone who wants to see him on this tour gets their chance. I'm super excited for tonight's show. I managed to get a bunch of music lovers together for this night, which is always a great way to start the party. Hope I see some of you there.

Black Mountain - Washington DC 2/19/2008


These katz are some bad ass heavy, heavy psychedelic rockers. They bring the old sound into the new. This is a great sounding concert that was broadcast on NPR live. If you haven't had a chance to hear them, this is a great place to start. They have a great early seventies heavy sound, with awesome backing female vox, by Amber Webber. Her vocals combined with Stephen McBean vocals make this band. Not to mention the fact that the band is one mean machine.

Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood to reform Faces

The Faces                             Pic: PA Photos
The Faces are set to reunite for rehearsals with a view to a full reformation.

Frontman Rod Stewart told Raysgigs.com that all the original members aside from late bassist Ronnie Lane, who died in 1997, were set to reconvene on Monday (November 17) to run through their old hits.

The singer, who spoke at the Claridges Bar 10th Anniversary Party said the band, which includes current Rolling Stones' guitarist Ronnie Wood, will use Stewart's touring bassist to fill in for Lane.

The Faces split up in 1975 after Wood began playing with The Rolling Stones.

THE KINKS WRITING NEW SONGS TOGETHER - Uncut.co.uk

The Kinks
The Kinks are looking to possibly reunite, and are working on new material together, front man Ray Davies has told BBC News.

The singer says that they have started writing songs but "It depends if there's good music. We want good new music. I'd like to do it as a more collaborative thing than we used to do."

The Kinks last performed in 1996, and are one the only popular bands from the 60s whose founding members are still alive.

Davies has also spoken about making another album, collaborating on duets with other musicians such as Razorlight's Johnny Borrell and Snow Patrol as well
as discovering new talent to work with.

Davies said: "I don't just want to do usual suspects. I'd love
to do something with Johnny, but I'd like to find new bands.
Unsigned even. I usually like the underdogs."

Tipsy -Buzzz


I'm so excited that these guys have finally put a new album out. Was thinking that maybe it was the end for Tipsy. Thank the psychedelic gods this is not so. It's been seven years since their last album "UH-OH"(2001), and it's tickling my ears with awesome sound. If you've never heard this band, check them out here. Their first full length is called "Trip Tease"(1997), and like all of them, it's tripped out, psychedelic, bachelor pad, exotica, space rock, instrumental, craziness. And man I love every second of it. No matter what chemical additives have been placed on your mind this music will intensify it. Not that you need anything, but a good set of ears and some time. The new album "Buzzz" is on the Ipecac Record Label. So Tipsy is sharing space with some other great artists like The Melvins and Ennio Morricone. This is Mike Patton's label. Lead singer of Faith No More, Mr Bungle and many more.

I know a few of you out there are as happy about this new release as I am. I grabbed it on Tuesday and haven't stopped yet.

This is one of my favorite songs off "Trip Tease."

Black Moth Super Rainbow - Bonus Drippers

Trippy, trippy stuff. These guys are not messing around. They have just released a new EP "Drippers" check it out if you can. This album is Bonus Drippers, which is "a bunch of our old unreleased songs." It may be old, but it is still crazy fun. Very psychedellic. Lots of keyboards and crazy lo-fi weirdness. Their last album "Dandelion Gum", awesome. Black Moth Super Rainbow I mean shit with a name like that. Come on. Not to mention, they're nice enough to share this music for free.

Dandy Warhols - Welcome to the Alternate Mix.


So, I just won tickets to see The Dandy Warhols tonight,which is a great start for the day. Thank you Criminal Records. To celebrate this good fortune, I thought I would share this version of "Welcome To The Monkey House." Not exactly sure the whole history on this. From what I can remember, I think this is before Nick Rhodes added his Duran Duran touches to the album. It gives the album a whole different sound. Its more of a dirty psychedelic rock sound than the released final version. Both are great just different. If you get a chance to see them live, don't pass it up. I had a great time seeing them on their last tour. Which makes me excited to see them tonite.
Enjoy.

You can check this concert out at Waves And Wires. Listen to the stream of the songs individually, or download the whole show. This is an audience recording of pretty good quality. It's in the B sounding range. It sounds rather distant and the crowd is definitely having a damn good time. Beck's been playing Bob Dylan's "Leopard Skin Pill-Box Hat" on this tour. Which is something worth checking out. So, go have a listen.

New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Sellersville Theater 2008-08-10


This is an excellent audience recording by taper Edtyre. Once again those schoeps mk-4 microphones bring that beautiful sound of a live concert home. The New Riders are in top form on this night. It's great to have them back and touring again. With each show I see, or hear recorded, they get stronger and stronger. This show is dedicated to Jerry Garcia and his August passing. They have dedicated the whole month to him. Note. Garcia was part of this band in its beginning. You can hear some of these early recordings at The Live Music Archive. Back to this show. It's a high energy night. They play a few new songs co-written by Hunter and Nelson that are pretty damn good. I like "Blues Barrel" quite a bit. And I'm sure with time these songs will be as strong as "Henry," "Dirty Business," and "Peggy-O." Thank you Edtyre for the hard work recording this Psychedelic Country. Can't wait to hear more.

I Don't Know You

This is great sounding bootleg. Nice and simple. Just vocals and guitar. And bizarre lyrics, of which you would expect nothing less from Banhart. If you haven't gotten a chance to hear this psychedelic folk man, this is a good place to start out. It reminds me of Eduardo Mateo and his album "Mateo Solo Bien Se Lame." But in English.

Action Alert: Tell Your Senators: "Don't Shred the Constitution this July 4th -- Reject Telecom Immunity!"

After the Fourth of July holiday, the Senate will vote on the FISA Amendments Act (FAA), a bill that would betray the spirit of 1776 by radically expanding the president’s spying powers and granting immunity to the companies that colluded in his illegal program. Now that the House has passed the FAA, the Senate is the last front left in the battle against immunity, and every vote -- from cloture, to the amendments, to final passage -- counts.

Therefore EFF urges all patriots to celebrate the Fourth of July this year by demanding that their senators uphold the rule of law and stand up for civil liberties, by voting against the FAA and for the amendments to the bill that would eliminate or weaken its telecom immunity provisions.

Keep your calls to your legislators' offices short and polite. Whether or not they agree with you, what is important is that the staffers know you are a constituent, and that you want your legislator to hold lawbreaking telecoms accountable.

I'm a constituent and I urge you to oppose telecom immunity and the FISA Amendments Act. As a constituent, I am very troubled that during this patriotic holiday season, the Senate appears ready to toss civil liberties and the rule of law out the window, and so I urge you oppose telecom immunity with every vote that you have when the FISA bill comes to the Senate floor on Tuesday, July 8th:

Vote "YES" on the Dodd-Feingold amendment, which would strip telecom immunity from the bill entirely.

Vote "YES" on the Bingaman amendment, which would delay implementation of telecom immunity until after Congress has received the Inspectors General report on the president’s warrantless surveillance program.

Vote “NO” on the cloture motion to end debate on the FAA,

And finally, vote "NO" on the FISA Amendments Act, an unconstitutional and dangerous bill that would radically expand the president's spying powers and immunize the companies that helped him break the law.

When you have completed your call, please help us track the progress of our campaign by logging it though the link below your Senator's phone number.

Alice Cooper Band - Commack Arena, NY 4-22-1972

This is a great sounding 1972 Long Island concert. This is The Cooper Band at its best. The only real draw back of this concert is the incomplete recording of "Is It My Body." There is also two other partial cuts on "Dead Babies" and "Killer." Don't let this stop you from checking this show out. The rest is rocking.
