Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley documentary

jeff buckley, unreleased, documentary, amazing grace

If you're one of the many who've been eagerly awaiting the release of Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley, the documentary screened occasionally at movie festivals around the world since 2004(?), then you're in luck.

A couple of weeks before they finally announced that it will get a release, though they haven't put a date on it, I recieved a copy of the original promo. This I have now shared on t'internet.

Download it here!

You may thank me now.

Jeff Buckley - Houston 1994

Jeff Buckley, live at the Urban Art Bar, Houston, 1st December 1994

Jeff and band played the Urban Art Bar twice within a year, and both of those with a) very good, and b) taped by audience member Chris Malazzo, though sadly the second had issues with the tape rendering the end of the set, in what's known in the technical terms as fucked. This is the first of those shows.

George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars - Woodstock 99

George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars, live at the Woodstock 99 festival, 23rd July 1999

The biggest man in funk rock (after Prince), with the biggest hair (after no-one), performing some of his greatest blissed-out hits. To have the likes of both the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snoop Doggy Dogg and chums as huge fans, surely the guy must've been doing something right. If you've never heard his brand of jamming funk, then you're in for a treat. Enjoy!

R.E.M., Outtakes Of Time, studio demo outtakes from the Out Of Time sessions

Another post that should be fairly self explanatory, the outtakes from the Scott Litt recorded Out Of Time sessions, although these were demo sessions rather than the actual final recording sessions. The album itself was the first huge hit from the Athens band, hitting the heady heights of No.1 in both the U.S. and U.K., and features the excellent KRS-One on the opening track to boot :) (not that he's on the bootleg sadly).

Nick Cave And The Badseeds, The Boatman's Call outtakes

Not sure what I can say about this today, it's all pretty much in the thing I will say, there were the Japanese B-sides and other such stuff added on to the bootleg, not something I agree with really, and as such I haven't posted them. Of course a few of these made it onto the b-sides and rarities album, but to remove those would take away from the session outtakes. Stroll on eh?
Anyway, enjoy!

Blind Melon - Soup Demos 1994

Blind Melon, Raw Soup, the Soup album demos, King Studios L.A.

Blind Melon recieved great publicity from Shannon Hoon's friendship with Axl Rose, and his backing vocal performances on the Use Your Illusion albums. Their self-titled debut album, and notably the hit single No Rain were very well recieved, the album as a whole an excellent funky rocker.

In 1994 they teamed up with producer Andy Wallace (yes, some of you will know who he is) to work on their second album Soup, this bootleg being the basis of it, as most of these tracks are simply unpolished versions of the final tracks. Sadly the following year Shannon died of an OD. He's much missed, but the band are back doing their thing after 12 years (they recorded one more after he died), having recently released their fourth album For My Friends.

Jethro Tull, live at the Oakland Coliseum, 23rd July 1973

Jethro Tull (named after an 18th cebtury agriculturist), probably most famous for frontman Ian Anderson's (much sampled) flute, and his flamingo impressions...he stood on one leg alot. I was introduced to this band by my father, who has a great love for them, and played their albums Thick As A Brick and Aqualung a hell of alot simply due to the fact that the songs were great with a good element of humour, always something good in my books, when done well of course.

Velvet Underground and Nico - Norman Dolph Acetate 1966

The Velvet Underground and Nico, Unripened - The Norman Dolph Acetate, Scepter Studios NYC, 25th April 1966

This is a copy of the original studio demos for the VU&N album in '67, cut to acetate shortly after recording. Sadly, There She Goes Again, also recorded during the Dolph sessions, wasn't placed on it, but alot of these recordings were remixed for the final released album.

A Mr. Hill of Montreal found a copy in a Chelsea (NYC) flea market in 2002 and paid a handsome sum of 75c, only to sell it a few years later for a much more handsome sum of $25,000 plus change. I think the phrase rhymes with 'clucky dastard', to paraphrase Captain Blackadder.

Radiohead - Amsterdam 1994

Radiohead, live at Melweg, Amsterdam, 2nd December 1994

A show for you today from when Radiohead were really starting to find their feet, just before hitting the studio for their fabulous The Bends album early the nest year. As such, most of the set is made up of Pablo Honey tracks and B-sides, with a nice smattering of what was to come. Though to be fair, most of The Bends was written alot earlier than the record was recorded, they had to continue touring to meet record company and fan demands following the success of Creep, hence the broken imagery of alot of songs on the album, as they were tired, felt pushed etc. etc.

Stone Roses - Manchester Uni 1985

Stone Roses, live at Manchester University, 2nd October 1985

One of the Stone Roses very earliest gigs for you today (plus bonus remixes of Fools Gold), from what is reputedly their first 'big' gig, the 800 capacity Manchester University. Not a great sound to be fair, and not a very pro perfomance, but the mix is pretty good and there are some great rare early tracks played, so I'm sure any fans would enjoy. Maybe not for the casual listener but perhaps worth a listen anyway.

01. So Young

Violent Femmes, live at Snow Ridge Ski Mountain, Turin NY, 4th September 2005

I think I probably heard the Violent Femmes first in the wonderful black comedy Grosse Point Blank, one of a few John Cusack films with terrific soundtracks (the adaptation of High Fidelity being a case in point). Over here in the UK they're song Blister In The Sun has been used in an advertising campaign for some or other tat, I forget. Anyway, they're a great indie-pop act, with a fun approach to the whole sex, drugs and rock'n'roll thing. Enjoy!

QOTSA, Acoustic Sessions, 2002 to 2007

This is a little compilation put together by myself, sourced from four differing sessions, three from FM sources (Oui FM France and BBC Radio 1), and one from a video source (3voor12). All are very different, whether Josh solo, Josh and Nick, or full band. The first one, from Radio 1, has an amusing variant on Feelgood Hit...but sadly also showcases how much of a dick Jo Whiley is. Enjoy anyway!

Mark Lanegan, Whiskey For The Holy Ghost, acoustic demos 1991

Mark continues to be one of my all time favourite rock singers, and does't seem to put a foot wrong (or at least too wrong) in his many, many musical projects. Here are the demos from his fraught recording sessions which were to become the basis of his second solo album Whiskey For The Holy Ghost. At the time he was having some fairly major substance issues, and the producer had to stop Mark from tossing these into the river. So be very thankfull people! ;-)
