Kasey Chambers, Live Tracks, Concert Boots, CD Singles MEGAPOST










This is a megapost of all my Kasey Chambers, CD Singles, CD-EP's, Live tracks, and bootleg concerts. Awesome download for any fan of Kasey or her former band, "The Dead Ringer Band".

Folk music has been stylish since the '60s as an embodiment of the hippie values of naturalism and activism. Then, the field was dominated by male artists such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and James Taylor, with only a few females like Joan Baez and Sandy Denny gaining fame.
Our generation prefers a folk market dominated by female vocalists. In recent years, artists like Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco and Alison Krauss have gotten attention for their distinct brands of folk and bluegrass. Singer/songwriter Kasey Chambers represents the latest addition to this growing list of female folk artists.
Chambers, 23, decided to become a folk artist at the age of 12, after seeing Lucinda Williams perform in concert. Yet one obstacle stood between Chambers and her dream: she comes from Australia, a land that boasts relatively few folk and bluegrass musicians. Chambers easily overcame this hindrance, finding immediate success in the United States with her 2000 album "The Captain." The television show "The Sopranos" even made the album's title track its theme song. After promoting "The Captain" in the States and playing to sold-out audiences, Chambers had escaped the confine of the Australian outback to find international success.
Chambers' second album, "Barricades & Brickwalls," represents a continuance of the elements that made "The Captain" successful. The opening title track features a distorted slide guitar with Chambers' high-pitched voice an octave above it. Displaying her debt to the blues-rock of the '60s, the song resembles material on Johnny Winter's "The Progressive Blues Experiment," although Chambers' voice is more melodic than Winter's.

Great Post. It's about time someone gave Kasey Chambers some well deserved time on a music blog.
Thanks a million.
Do you have any albums by a group called Free Beer that you could post?

WVKayaker said...

rockymustard, I never heard of Free Beer, but if you come across it, please post a link to it here.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy Kasey!

hahahaha....my guess is that eockymustard may be an aussie.

A band called Free Beer used to play the pub circuit on the east coast of Oz and the band's posters used to read for example:
"Friday 13th Royal Antler Hotel 8pm Free Beer"

naturally, less savvy punters would rock up to the pub expecting happy hour beers for free.

great way to build a following.

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...
