The sound quality isn't quite as good as a cheap transistor AM radio submerged in vat of molasses.
Ah, those eyes...
Disc 10 of Larks. Interesting stuff indeed. And that bass...
I've detected quite a few nasty rumours concerning this and I will be more than happy to join the 'what can never be unheard' club in 55 minutes time.
And that voice...
Disc 10 is the studio sessions reel, ain't it? Great one.
It sure is, on both accounts.
I like Wetton in KC about 50% better each nanosecond I hear him sing or play, I think. That first take of "Exiles" is just majestic (too short, tho).
I just listened to King Crimson live at the Rainbow. I think. Nah, I've heard worse. I think (again). At least the bass almost cuts thru. I lasted approx. 181 seconds which I think is some sort of record.
"- listener beware -audio for this show is of such poor quality as to be beyond meaningful restoration and is included solely for historic purposes". Had it been the first recording ever done in the history of mankind, I wouldn't have been enough to justify its inclusion
Those early recordings on wax do not sound as bad as this. And I've also got a gazilion blues, country and jazz tracks from the '20's. Compared to this, they are hifi.
I can see why they 'included' it but who the Hell would want to listen to it all the way thru? Still, it makes the other ones sound better. Maybe that is why...
Nothing sez Old Year's Eve like vegan death metal, right? Well, that is the situation that is gwan on rite here as I type.
(Almost) the Thin Lizzy of extreme music, no less. Ugly and still a bit beautiful. Like me...
How is that one?
I love it, it brings much more clarity to what's being played. Some fans dislike the use of reverb on a couple of vocal tracks, but I think it's an splendid remix.
I really like the album, but I've been a bit put off by all the negative talk about the latest box to buy it yet. Then again people seems to be almost hysterical when it comes to these things.
The box has its mastering problems, the main ones being:
Low has extreme low frequencies (it sounds quite logical after all )
"Heroes" features a volume drop on '"Heroes"'
But, the Lodger remix is great, Stage (original mix) and Scary Monsters sounds great too, and the Re:Call volume is quite rich.
Far from being perfect, but a solid 7/10 for me.
I caught two of them - 0ne of the Bridge shows and one at the Fox in Oakland, both excellent nights that I never expected to experience. Too bad they couldn't have kept it going longer for more people to see them.
Yup, that one was my main concern. Thing is that I've got two or three versions of most of these albums on cd (and Bowie is the only artist I've ever done this for) so I really want the box but I'm still sorta on the fence.
Of course a better Lodger and particularly Scary Monsters would be very tempting indeed...
More vegan butchery.
The good kinda hair metal. Aka the one without only the hair.
The last four or five years I've usually only listen to this one while under the influence (today it is just champagne, fellaz, settle down), but it still has been a major part of my life for the last 33 years. More than you can say about the Beatles...
Before the Silence
Albert Cirera - tenor & soprano saxophones
Hernani Faustino: double bass
Gabriel Ferrandini: Drums
Agusti Fernandez: piano
Recorded live on 5/9/2015
First listen sounding real good - never heard this saxophonist / bought it for the great pianist & also for the drummer who I know from Rodrigo Amado’s Motion Trio.
On No Business Records
I don't listen to early Zep that often compared to my teen years but what a great record #II is. Turn it up to eleven or nothing at all
Finishing off the extraordinary concert recording called “Before the Silence”
I didn’t know the 4 track-listings were simply placeholders if one wanted to get back into the concert part way through.
~63-64 minutes of improvisation right in my wheelhouse with one of the greatest 2-3 living improvising pianists in the *great* Agusti Fernandez in blazing form. Nice to hear an improving quartet go all out without remembering to moor the music to a quiet centre. Ferrandini is very powerful and this saxophonist I’d never heard before (Albert Cirera) is someone I need to hear more from.
After all these years, I’m still so excited and amazed when a band can create a fully improvised piece or pieces that almost seem like a pre-composed piece of something that at least has some sketched out signposts while realizing it’s truly improvised from scratch. These Portuguese dudes (I include Rodrigo Amado who is the saxophonist that got me listening to these musicians) really have something special happening.
Peter Brotzmann with Steve Swell & Paal Nilssen-Love
Live in Copenhagen 4/14/2016
The grandmaster a bit over a month after his 75th birthday is in prime form on the opening 29 minute improvisation starting on tenor and switching to clarinet about 22 minutes in.
Looking forward to the rest later today or during the week.
In pristine up close recorded sound with drums, trombone and reeds sounding like I’m in the room.
On Not Two records
1 Vibration And Light Suite 16:34
2 Rosalee 10:15
3 They Love Each Other 7:03
4 Tumbleweed In Eden 11:54
5 Shore Power 5:18
6 Burn Slow 7:35
7 Driving Wheel 8:09
Nice set. The keyboards on "Vibration and light" sounds like midi in the beginning but moves towards electric piano at the end.
Casal steals the show with his playing but Chris's rhythm guitar is clearly audable on most songs and he does a fine job
