From The Austin City Limits Website:


Austin City Limits presents the unique talents of Rosanne Cash with two of her favorite songwriter friends, Bruce Cockburn and Lucinda Williams, for an evening of intimate acoustic music. Rosanne Cash has been making great music for more than a decade. She has scored 11 No. 1 country singles since 1981. In 1985, she was honored with a Grammy Award for best female vocal performance and BMI’s prestigious annual Robert J. Burton Songwriting Award. She also won the 1988 Billboard Award for top singles artist. The oldest child of country music legend Johnny Cash . watched as fame took its toll on her father’s life and marriage. “When you put your fame where the self-esteem should be, it can be worse than heroin,” she said. Her mistrust of stardom sometimes kept her at arm’s length from her own career. When Ariola Records offered Cash her first record deal, she stayed in bed and cried. When her music was at the top of the charts, she only toured sporadically. But the same anxieties that threatened her success also propelled her music. As a writer, Cash meets her demons head-on. Starkly, sometimes brutally honest, she explores her own subconscious to paint revealing portraits of love and life. As she once said, “Most country songs go something like ‘Oh, honey/You left me/And now I’m so sad.’ I’m more interested in the hidden agenda: ‘Oh honey/You left me/And why did I want to get you to do that?’ You know on life’s surface things look placid and normal, but unseen there’s this whole life that’s evolving…that’s what I really want to write about and explore.” Bruce Cockburn may be the best-kept secret on the continent. After more than two decades in the business, 10 Juno Awards (The Canadian version of Grammys), an Edison Award (Holland’s Grammy), the Order of Canada, which is the highest civilian honor a Canadian can receive, nine gold records, two platinum records and numerous other awards, Cockburn is still virtually a secret in the United States. Fortunately, that’s about to change. His most recent release is his first to be recorded on a United States label. Cockburn chronicles his life, spiritual faith and political beliefs in fresh, vital music that echoes his love of early blues and reflects a myriad of other influences including folk, rock, jazz, world music rhythms and Native American traditions. The result is intelligent, poetic, deeply felt music laced with superb guitar work. Austin resident Lucinda Williams spent almost two decades on the coffeehouse circuit, recording two albums of her blend of country, Delta blues, folk and rock for Folkways Records. Her eclecticism cost her a record deal in 1983 when a major record label signed her, realized they couldn’t pigeonhole her, then dropped her. Undaunted, Williams closed her ears to industry nay-sayers in 1988 and produced a low-budget record with her own band, penning all but one of the cuts herself and nurturing her musical diversity. In 1988, Rough Trade records released Lucinda Williams to a growing and loyal audience. The press fell in love. So did country and alternative radio. Phrases like “compelling, no-nonsense honesty,” “resilience and beauty” and “sensitivity and good humor” pepper her reviews. The album’s overwhelming success prompted Rough Trade to release the LP’s hit single, “Passionate Kisses,” in an extended play format with four other cuts. The next year, Williams made her Austin City Limits debut. Despite her success, Williams is far from complacent. “I have this real fear about selling out,” she said. “Or sounding too slick. Not being me. To me, that would just be a nightmare.”

Hi - nice work here. I'm a new arrival with similar musical dispositions. I was talking with a friend the other day about American Music Shop and several other programs from the early days of music TV and from PBS. There was a live from Texas honkytonk show, a Florida country show from what looked like a mall courtyard and the Mountain Stage series that has seen release on cd. Someone must have the American Music Shop rights for rebroadcast or cd release. Just for the house band, the program was one of the finest continuous music presentations on television. My own VHS copies of the show are barely good enough to rip to mp3. New mission - to seek out and find new outlets for those great performances. Kelly Willis and Jim Lauderdale! Thanks for your efforts. -Charlie Shill

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...
