Audio Rip From the 25th Montreux Music Festival

I'm not sure who aired this, but back in 1991 I taped this off the TV and this is an audio rip from that VHS HI-FI Tape. It's only 30 minutes in length, but the performance and sound is awesome.

"Nick Of Time" by Bonnie Raitt
"Tangled In The Dark" by Bonnie Raitt
"Love Came To Town" by BB King
"Allison" by Elvis Costello

Elton, Adams Unite On 'cmt Crossroads'
Publication: Billboard
Date: Saturday, April 20 2002

At 8 p.m. ET/PT May 26, CMT will air its much-anticipated (and
once-postponed) CMT Crossroads featuring a joint performance by Elton John and Ryan Adams. The rock-meets-country concert series has the two artists playing such songs as John's "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" from 1972's Honky Chateau and Adams' "Oh My Sweet Carolina" from 2000's Heartbreaker.

During the taping of the show—which includes interview and behind-the-scenes footage—John said, "What really attracted me to Ryan's music was Heartbreaker. I saw an incredible review in Billboard ["Ryan Adams' Healing 'Heartbreaker,' " Music to My Ears, Billboard, Nov. 4, 2000] by Timothy White, who's the editor, and I thought, 'I've gotta check this out.' And I bought it, and I was completely and utterly floored by the simplicity and beauty of it." So he sent Adams a note.

"For the [1970] Elton John album," John added, "I got a similar kind of thing from George Harrison, saying 'Congratulations, loved the record.' As All Things Must Pass was going down the chart, mine was going up. It's always stuck with me that if you ever hear something you like from someone new, you should make an effort to go out of your way." Later in the taping (done April 2 at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House), John said songs such as "Carolina" inspired him "to go back to basics and do [Songs From the West Coast]."

By JOHN GEROME, Associated Press Writer
Fri Jan 6, 2:45 PM ET

Twenty years ago a lanky young country singer from Texas headed to Milwaukee to open a concert for a raspy-voiced blues rocker.

Lyle Lovett arrived a day early for the show with Bonnie Raitt and got a call in his hotel room.

"She and her road manager and the fellow playing bass guitar with her were all up in Bonnie's room playing cards, and they called me and said, `Hey, come on up. You want to play?'"

The two have been playing together ever since, even as their music and careers have veered in different directions.

They were in Nashville recently to tape an upcoming episode of the Country Music Television series "Crossroads," a show that pairs country singers with performers from other genres, usually rock and pop.

For Lovett, 48, and Raitt, 56, it was more a celebration of long roads than of crossroads.

"We've toured together many times with various bands and incarnations. We've seen each other through love affairs, breakups, many, many albums and here we are," Raitt reflected as they sat backstage.


Indeed, both have had remarkable longevity — Raitt since 1971 and Lovett since 1986. While Raitt is grounded in rock and Lovett in country, each incorporates blues, gospel, jazz and folk into their music.

When they first met and began touring, Lovett had just released his self-titled debut album and was being promoted by MCA/Curb as a mainstream country singer. The album produced three top 20 singles, including "Cowboy Man."

It was the closest he would come to the mainstream. By his second album, 1988's "Pontiac," Lovett, who writes most of his own songs, was experimenting with a jazzier, big-band sound, and country radio began to lose interest.

Raitt, on the other hand, was intrigued.

"He's an absolute original," she said. "I love his sensibilities in terms of how unique a point of view he has as a writer. He naturally brings in so many elements of music that I cling to, like blues and gospel and his kind of country and Texas music."

Despite scant radio airplay, Lovett, whose songs possess a wry, offbeat sense of humor, has had gold records and won Grammys, including one for best country album for 1996's "The Road to Ensenada."

He became a celebrity, perhaps reluctantly, when he married actress Julia Roberts in 1993. They met on the set of director Robert Altman's 1992 film, "The Player," the first of several movie appearances for Lovett. The marriage lasted about two years and drew intense publicity. To this day, Lovett won't discuss it in interviews.

Ironically, as Lovett was moving away from the mainstream, Raitt was moving toward it. For much of the 1970s and '80s, Raitt, the daughter of the late Broadway singer John Raitt, interpreted the classic blues of musical heroes like Robert Johnson and Sippie Wallace as well as contemporary songwriters such as John Prine.

With her soulful voice and raw, bluesy guitar playing, she became a cult favorite. Her albums sold modestly and she had a hit in 1977 with a remake of Del Shannon's "Runaway."

"I was a huge fan of Bonnie's before I'd even dreamed I'd ever get to go out and really play anywhere besides just around my home," Lovett said. "She had that effortless, powerful voice and that searing slide guitar."

She also was active in environmental and social issues, such as stopping the war in Central America, apartheid in South Africa and the spread of nuclear energy.

But by the mid-1980s, while battling alcoholism and lackluster sales, Raitt lost her contract with Warner Brothers Records.

She struggled a few years and sobered up before signing with Capitol Records for 1989's aptly titled "Nick of Time." The album teamed her with producer Don Was and took a more polished, pop sound. It shot to No. 1 and became the first in a string of hugely successful albums for her, yielding hits such as "Thing Called Love," "Something to Talk About," and the ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me."

In 1991 she married actor Michael O'Keefe; they divorced in 1999. She also won several Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

As her commercial streak waned, Raitt continued releasing albums and lending her music to social causes. She and Lovett teamed in 2002 for her "Green Highway" tour to promote alternative energy sources. Lovett had to perform shows with a cast on his leg after being trampled by a bull on the family homestead where he still lives.

When CMT asked Raitt about doing "Crossroads" she didn't have to think much about a musical partner. (The show airs Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. EST.)

"Of all the people I would have chosen, he was the only one I felt a connection with," Raitt said.

Live8 from AOL 2005 Audio Rip 83 Tunes

It took forever, but I captured the audio from a shitload of Live8 videos that were streamed from AOL's website shortly after 2005's Live8 worlwide concert.

Eight Prefab Sprout CD Singles

Here I am sharing my collection of Prefab Sprout CD Singles. Eight discs in all containg some unreleased and alternative and extended versions. 28 Tunes altogether.

This is how I discovered Prefab Sprout. I was totally into Thomas Dolby, Aliens Ate My Buick album and was thirsty for more. So I called Weasel at WHFS in Annapolis, MD USA(an extermely knowledgeable DJ) and asked him what else Mr Dolby was involved in. He hung up on me stating, he was running a contest and didn't have time. I was pissed, so when the contest was over, I called back and Weasel barked out something about Thomas Dolby produced some Prefab Sprout albums...WTF? Luckily he was right and I went out and purchased everything I could from Prefab Sprout.

THREE WHFS TAPES FROM 1977, 1980, 1983

The responses to my WHFS postings have been, quite frankly, very suprising. Instead of picking and choosing, I am going to post what I have from beginning to end, good or great, and in between. This post is for 3 tapes from WHFS. The 1977 and 1980 tape may dissapoint a bit because I ommited all DJ chatter and contains music only. In those days I wasn't thinking of preserving anything for nosatalgic reasons, just wanted some variety music to listen to in my VW van. The 1983 tape has commercials, news and PSAs. An interesting news item broadcast from UPI here is a piece on the future of banking, that one day believe it or not we could pay our bills from home on a personal computer. Pretty cool.

Early Demos 1983-84 Fan CD, distributed by the Little Diva Mailing List in the late 1990s. "The true sound of Lone Justice - these demos, some of which were probably recorded in late 1983 just after the band signed to Geffen, are what LJ were really about. They are obviously not demos for the debut album as they have a raw, unpolished quality that was (to a certain extent) expunged when recording for the album commenced in mid-1984 and the big-names were brought in to commercialise the band."

Here is another WHFS Post shared again by Josh! Looks like an awesome set list for sure. I do remember the late Friday afternoon Party weekend rundown, but can't recall the artist Josh is looking for. If I recall I'll post it. In the meantime, can any HFS Heads help us out?
Having Josh share his HFS tapes form 1985 is a real treat for me. One of the reasons that I have posted so many from 1983, is (1) it was announced that WHFS @ 102.3FM would be closing down. And (2) I had a job with days off during the week, and would do some excellent taping in the morning and afternoon. In 1985 WHFS was now @ 99.1FM and broadcasting with 50k watts. That same year, I got a job working M-F 8:30-5:00 and that was it for me taping in the afternoon. I did have a portable Sony Boom box and listened to WHFS all day everyday. It wasn't surprising how many people I worked with never heard the station before. I did do a tape or two on my portable but the quality is not so hot.

Below is the e-mail from Josh:

"Some more HFS tunes from Spring '85 and another request for help

Weasel and Bob had a weekend set they played every Friday. It was:

Dave Edmunds-Here Comes the Weekend
Joe King Carrasco--Party Party Weekend

And a third tune:

Well I go to school from 9 to 3
Every chance I get
They try to teach me the golden rule
But I ain't learned nothing yet

Thanks God it's Friday
Lord, I'm here to say
Thank God it's Friday
Lord, it's been a long long day

This is the last of my WGBT tapes. One is an hour long Ampex open reel tape of the Hard Implosion Show from 1978. An hour of 70's hard rock-n-roll. The other is one side of a TDK D60 tape of fusion featuring Pat Metheny, Keith Jarret, John Ambercrombie, Brand X along with a rant about the then current Montgomery County police chief. Priceless. The 2nd cassette is one side of a TDK D60 tape with the following: Trooper, Gale Force, Noel Redding Band, Foreigner, Rory Gallegher

If only I had the funds to buy more blank tapes. But my money was at a premium in those days, so didn't tape as much as I would have wanted to. Whatever, it is what is.
Hope someone out there finds these archives interesting and will give them a listen and leave some feedback here.

Rock 103 WXZL Annapolis Maryland, 9 Ninety Minute Tapes from 1994

WXZL was a hard rock-progressive station in Annapolis that was taken over by WRNR. WRNR Owner Jake Einstein was the owner of WHFS back in the day. Too bad I didn't know about this station sooner, before WRNR took over. I have several tapes, 9 of them too be shared in this post. Most are in mono because the signal was so weak. But this was an awesome radio station. Long setlists and progressive in nature, leaning toward hard rock. As mentioned before, I taped these tapes, and always used either my Pioneer CT-F1000 3 head deck, or later with my Nakamichi CR1A 3 head deck. So they sound great. The fact most of these are in mono, really takes nothing away from the great music. Just elimintes the hissing due to the weak signal. Pretty cool station. Hope to hear some feedback on this post. Standy by soon for more WHFS, WGTB, and WRNR.

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...
