King Crimson - 1973/06/23 Atlanta, GA

Alright, this is a nice weird one, from the ever changing King Crimson. This soundboard was recorded live at Richard's Club, Atlanta GA, June 6th, 1973. This recording was a live radio broadcast, but this source is pre FM. If you're a Crimson fan, this is a good one for your collection. The sound is really good, just a tiny bit of tape hiss on the real quite parts. Although, I think it is actually coming from the amps. Otherwise, you've got some strong psychedelic rocking music. With a couple of tripped out jams in between.

Set List:
1. Doctor Diamond 
2. Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part One 
3. MC
4. Easy Money 
5. Improvisation #1
6. Exiles 
7. Book of Saturday
8. Improvisation #2
9. Talking Drum
10. Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part Two

Miles Davis - 10/22/1971 Zürich Switzerland

West 77th Street, New York, 1971 © Anthony Barboza
I've kinda been on an electric Miles kick for the last few weeks. So, I thought I'd share, what I've been listening too, with you. This is another FM source recording, but unlike the last one, this sounds a lot cleaner. The recording has nice stereo separation, as well as nice highs and smooth lows.  This concert clocks in at almost 80 minutes, which gives your ears time to really sink into it. And of coarse Miles and the band tear it up like only they can. 

Set List:
1. Directions (13:04)
2. What I Say? (10:58)
3. Sanctuary (03:42)
4. It's About That Time (13:15)
5. Bitches Brew (11:55)
6. Funky Tonk (25:53)
7. Sanctuary (01:00)

Owsley "The Bear" Stanley - January 19, 1935 – March 13, 2011

Thank you for all the music, and mind expansion. You have done more for the growth of this civilization then many could even dream of. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will be greatly missed.

Can - 1968-06 First Session

This is a must have for all hardcore Can listeners. It is supposedly the first ever session they played as a group. Clocking it around thirty minutes, there are two separate jams. This music is a bit looser than they will become in the future. Their sound jumps from jazz to pounding rock and many style between, and it is all held together with a rich psychedelic vibe. There is a nice review written by Doug Pearson included, that will explain this session further.

Miles Davis 1973/10/17 Boston Ma.

Here we have a nice sounding off air FM recording. This is a Jazz Workshop event from Berkley Music College, featuring Miles Davis. This recording is another one from WBCN's archives. Which again proves that this station used to be amazing. Miles takes it to the psychedelic edge with this preformance. The thirty plus minute version of "Ife" is unbelievable. As is his fourteen minute "Agharta Prelude." This is another great late night, red light listen.  Enjoy.

Set List:

1 Band warming up [Voiceover introduction] 
2 Ife
3 Agharta Prelude
4 Zimbabwe
5 closing announcement

Cream - 10-15-1967

Since, I've got the time here's another amazing show. If you are a Cream fan, than I highly recommend this one. This soundboard is unbelievable. Absolutely, amazing jams. Eric and the band are out of fucking control, tearing up this show. The sound quality on this recording is A plus, and for 1967 that is saying a lot. I'm surprised The Grande Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan was still standing after this power trio was finished. They give it the full treatment on every song, the harmonica playing on "Traintime" is something to be heard. So, here is what I suggest. If you've got that small ball of hash you been saving, like me, for a special listening moment. Bust it out. And give this concert a high volume listen. 
Set List:

1.Tales of Brave Ulysses, 
3.Sitting On Top of the World, 
4.Sweet Wine, 
5.Rollin’ and Tumblin’, 
7.Steppin’ Out, 
10.I’m So Glad

Blind Faith - London, England 06- 07-1969 Hyde Park

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything new. Sorry about that. Been going through a lot of life crap. Like that's a big surprise for any of us. Alright, enough of that, let's get to the music. This is a really nice soundboard recording.  Recorded live in London at Hyde Park on June, 7th, 1969. This bootleg was made by Mid Valley. This company tends to put out some high quality recordings. You usually can't go wrong if their name is on it. And this is definitely one of those recordings. Blind Faith is going strong on this concert. They play a nice cover of "Under My Thumb" which is interesting, since The Rolling Stones will play Hyde Park in July of 1969. I've just started reading Keith Richards' book. He talks about how he would hang out with Eric quite a bit. So, I'm sure there is some kind of inside joke going on.
Enjoy the show.

Set List:

 1. Introduction
 2. Well All Right
 3. Sea of Joy
 4. Sleeping in the Ground
 5. Under My Thumb
 6. Can't Find My Way Home
 7. Do What You Like
 8. Presence of the Lord
 9. Means to an End
 10. Had to Cry Today
