John Martyn’s seminal live album from 1975 has been given the deluxe edition treatment to celebrate its 35th anniversary. Disc One is the original eight-song concert digitally remastered and sounding as fresh as a daisy. The collection includes live versions of "May You Never", "Bless The Weather" and "Solid Air". Disc Two features four songs which didn’t make it on to the original album, including "I’d Rather Be The Devil", "So Much In Love With You", "Clutches" and "Mailman", plus a further six previously unreleased songs recorded in rehearsals and featuring Paul Kossoff on guitar..
Part of a series of live recordings unearthed after 40 years, this album presents one night of a three-night stand Quicksilver Messenger Service played as opening act for Jefferson Airplane at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco on February 4, 1967. The recordings are especially valuable since Quicksilver played for years, usually in and around San Francisco, before releasing its first album, Quicksilver Messenger Service, in May 1968. As this performance shows, the band was ready to record more than a year earlier.
Do we really need another live double CD by the Allman Brothers Band? Oh yeah. In fact, when they play this well, we need them in droves. This collection marks the second time the Allman Brothers have issued music from their storied shows at the Beacon Theater in New York. The first, Peakin' at the Beacon, was issued in 2000 with Dickey Betts and Derek Trucks in the lineup. Betts had not yet been fired and Warren Haynes was yet to return to the fold. While Betts is a singular voice and is one of the pillars of the ABB's sound, this new version of the band with Trucks and Haynes manning the guitars has gelled into a formidable unit; in fact, they are something spectacular. Add to the fact that Gregg Allman is singing and playing better than at any time in his life (and Haynes is no slouch either), and you have the best live band in the world, bar none.
Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. Jazz at the Plaza Vol. II is a live album by American pianist, composer and bandleader Duke Ellington recorded in 1958 at a party for Columbia Records and released on the label in 1973. The Miles Davis Sextet was also recorded at the same event and released as the first volume of Jazz at the Plaza. An intimate live session from Duke Ellington and his great late 50s orchestra – presented here at a private party hosted by Columbia Records at the Plaza Hotel in New York – at a time when Ellington was making some of his best music for the label! The tracks here are every bit on a par with Duke's late 50s gems for Columbia – and have the orchestra stepping out strongly on short numbers that maybe have a bit more swing and a bit less overall concept – as the soloist shift, and shine nicely on each tune!
This very special, and intimate evening was recorded LIVE in 2016 at Swinghouse Studios (Los Angeles, California USA). It consisted of Ryan McGarvey on Guitar/Vocals, Logan Miles Nix (John5 & The Creatures) on Drums, and Carmine Rojas (David Bowie/Rod Stewart/Tina Turner/Joe Bonamassa/etc) on Bass. This performance included such crowd favorites as "My Heart TO You", "Memphis", and "Joyride". As well as epic orchestrations of key original songs "Prove Myself", and "Mystic Dream".
