The Big D.C. Jamboree Vol. 3 CD Rip

Dang, sometimes you come across something in your own CD collection that you've overlooked and forgotten about for years. While going through some of my 'various artists' CDs looking for some tunes to load up on my iPod, I spotted this old CD that for some reason has just been sitting there collecting dust for 20 years. What a shame. This CD is freakin' packed with twangin' guitars, Roots Rock, Rockabilly, Psychobilly and strait up Rock n' Roll from D.C.'s finest of the early 90's.
I am familiar with Ruthie and The Wranglers and The Wanktones on here, but that's just about it for me. It's a great collection...Enjoy!

If anyone has any of the previous editions of this series I'd love to get a link for them.

Jimmie Rodgers Tribute - TNN's American Music Shop [Circa 1990] Audio Rip

Jimmie Rodgers Tribute - TNN's American Music Shop [Circa 1990] Audio Rip

Hosted by David Holt, with Van Williams, Marty Brown, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore

Back in the early 90's TNN had a great series called The American Music Shop. This music show featured a different country artist each week. Concerts were given in a small, intimate theatre and recorded live. In addition to the artists' own bands, the American Music Shop band (Mark O'Conner, Musical Director) accompanied the performers, giving these concerts a unique sound.

I recorded a few of these shows on VHS HI-FI.

1 Show Intro
2 Somewhere Down Below the Dixon Line
3 Guest Intros
4 California Blues
5 Mule Skinner Blues (Blue Yodel No. 8)
6 Let Me Be Your Sidetrack
7 Peach Pickin' Time In Georgia
8 Discussion, Travelin' Blues, Hobo Bill, Hadie Brown
9 Prohibition Has Done Me Wrong
10 Frankie and Johnny
11 In the Jailhouse Now
12 T For Texas
13 Standin' On The Corner (Blue Yodel #9)
14 Waiting For A Train

The sound quality is excellent.

The Buddy Holly Story Soundtrack

I purchased this LP from eBay recently. Gary Busey does a pretty good job interpreting Buddy Holly. Long out of print and originally released in 1978.

Apparently the copy I received is a poor pressing as a rumble is present between tracks. I trimmed the dead space between tunes to minimize this distraction. Still very listenable. 

A1 Rave On
A2 It's So Easy
A3 True Love Ways
A4 Clear Lake Medley:

That'll Be The Day

Oh Boy!

Peggy Sue

Maybe Baby

Not Fade Away

I'm Gonna Love You Too
B1 Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On
B2 Well All Right
B3 Listen To Me
B4 Maybe Baby
B5 Everyday
B6 Roller Rink Medley:

Rock Around With Ollie Vee

That'll Be The Day

The Rockets - Live Rockets, Needle Drop

Having mistakenly found and then downloaded The Rockets Live album, a vinyl rip@24bit 192khz 3GB flac file, no less, did I realize it was not The Rockets from Detroit, USA but some space rock band from France. Dang it.
So this got me to go ahead and rip my pristine Rockets Live L.P.

Perusing the interwebs, I saw a copy on eBay for sale at $75.00. Man, I'm gonna have to consider selling some of my stash.

Haven't heard this one in a while, and it's good ol' kick ass Rock'n Roll!
Here's a review I stole that says it all better than I can. Besides that, I'm just too fucking lazy and not articulate enough to say what this dude already said.

THE ROCKETS-LIVE ROCKETS: Detroit Rock City boasts an impressive rock & roll pedigree that includes ALICE COOPER, BOB SEGER, MC5, RARE EARTH, TED NUGENT and BROWNSVILLE STATION. LIVE ROCKETS is a slam-bang grab bag of boogie classics from that region's most underrated band, whose five album career has otherwise never been legitimized by a greatest hits compilation. DAVE GILBERT's raspy, "Saturday night out with the boys" screech, bolstered by ex DETROIT WHEELS legends JIM MCCARTY's careening axe salvos and JOHNNY "THE BEE" BADANJEK's solid stick-work, is augmented by guest sax blower CHUCK PERRAUT and a trio of soul-powered female backing vocalists. This is a made-loud-to-play-loud farewell party with sass to spare. Crash 'n burn BADENJEK originals like CAN'T SLEEP, TURN UP THE MUSIC and ROLLIN' BY THE RECORD MACHINE mix seamlessly with a suitably funky cover of LOU REED's slinky SALLY CAN'T DANCE and a ballbustin' version of bloozer PETER GREEN's classic OH WELL. As one of their better album titles suggested, there's NO BALLADS to get in the way of a good time. Brash, bloozey, and ballsy, once you give 'em a ride, LIVE ROCKETS is a hard platter indeed to take off your record machine.

Well, that just about covers all you need to know about this kick-butt album.

A1 Rollin' By The Record Machine 4:19
A2 Desire    3:55
A3 Can't Sleep 3:01
A4 Sally Can't Dance 3:46
A5 Takin' It Back 4:52
B1 Open The Door To Your Heart 3:47
B2 Oh Well 4:16
B3 Turn Up The Radio 6:32
B4 Born In Detroit 4:52

The Black Angels on Austin City Limits [Season 43]

From my DVR to you we have the audio rip of The Black Angels on Austin City Limits [Season 43]
It's a short and sweet set aired on my local PBS station.

The Black Angels bring their signature sound of menacing fuzz guitar and cutting wordplay, steeped in a murky hallucinatory dream back to Austin City Limits for a second time performing songs from their powerful new record Death Song.

Since forming in Austin in 2004, The Black Angels have become standard-bearers for modern psych-rock, and the New York Times has said they “play psychedelic rock as if the 1960s never ended, and they are absolute masters of it.” The band’s 2010 breakthrough Phosphene Dream launched the Austin collective onto the world stage.

Death Song is the psych rock masters’ first full-length release in four years. NPR raves, “The Black Angels have delivered an enormous and frighteningly timely fifth album full of uniquely trippy anthems to oblivion.” Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease. Classic Rock says Death Song “is their heaviest to date, a toxic draught of garage- rock and booming psychedelia that buzzes with echo and reverb,” while A.V. Club claims “confirms there’s no end to the kinds of hurt and frustration that can be channeled into its cathartic music.”

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
