Queen - London 1971

Queen, De Lane Lea Studios, London, Autumn 1971

Todays bootleg is the original, well a copy of it anyway, 1971 demo. As you can see from the above image, it was recorded and pressed by Trident Studios (now Trident Audio Development), who let Queen record during the quiet periods (no doubt the middle of the night), and after 8 months of trying to help them get signed eventually released Queens full debut themselves. Enjoy!

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, live at the Maine State Pier, Portland, 17th July 2009

After listening to Conors music for several years now, it's great that he finally has a real band, and not just guys playing his songs. The Mystic Valley Band have come of age with their second release, helping Conor reign in those self indulgent moments, and contributing alot more than just instrumental ability. Enjoy!

I really think Jack White should start a Michael Jackson tribute act, with Jack Black, and call it...It Don't Matter if You're Black or White. Hey now! That's not too bad a joke for something I thought of this very second! Anyway...this is a cool set from Mr. White's latest musical daliance, with a few interesting covers. Enjoy!

Madeleine Peyroux - Montreal 2006

Madeleine Peyroux, live at the Théatre Outremont, Montreal, 20th October 2006

Madeleine is an American born singer/songwriter, who after moving to Paris in her teens has made her name as a quality jass and folk singer, in the mould of Billie Holiday and her ilk. She's released 5 albums to date, after first struggling with the pressure placed on her after the debut Dreamland, there were eight years between that and the follow-up Got You on My Mind. Anyway, she sings alot of covers, from both the jazz and folk worlds (Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, Elliott Smith), many of which are amongst this fabulous set. Enjoy!

The Pixies, live at the Newcastle Poly, 27th April 1989

Yet another band I'm surprised not to have posted shows of before now, although there is a Breeders show up. At this point in their career, The Pixies had released three albums in as many years, and had toured an awful lot too, no big shock then that the band had issues. Enjoy!

John Frusciante, live in Kentucky, April 1997

Recorded in an unknown location on an unknown date, very handy that, and sadly nowhere near a complete show. That aside, there are some rather rare tracks here. Two of the songs are unreleased John compositions, tentatively titled by fans probably, and another is a cover of Nirvana's Moist Vagina, b-side to the also snappily titled Rape Me. Enjoy!

Blood Red Shoes, live at the Garden Nef Party, Angouleme, 17th July 2009

BRS are duo Steve and Laura-May, not an unusual name for a lass from the southern United States, but slightly from the south of England. They've been playing together for quite a few years now, although only one album released thus far, and they've played with some fairly illustrious bands including, Biffy Clyro, Siouxie Sioux, Maximo Park and Rage Against The Machine, to name a broad ranging few. Their second album's in production, and a couple of tracks of which (Wheeze, Fade to Grey) are featured in this set. Enjoy!

Velvet Underground, live rehearsal at Max's Kansas City, New York, summer 1970

In 1968, Andy Warhol moved from the original Factory premises, to a little place across the street from a club called Max's Kansas City. The backroom of the club, nicknamed The Bucket of Blood, became a respite for Andy and other celebraties when in town. Well, this bootleg is sourced from a rehearsal in the summer of '70, probably 26th July, recorded to a reel-to-reel via a single mike. Enjoy!

If you've ever seen the footage from Amsterdam's Paradisio club (check PooTube if not), then you'll know what to expect from the solo European tour of 2001. Whether you have or not, this is a really great show in its own right. For the record, John's solo shows have 10x more soul than any Chili's performance, rudimentary or not. Enjoy!

Sadly, the last two tracks were not recorded (Goodnight Hollywood Blvd./SYLVIA PLATH), probably due to a shortage of tape...I'm guessing. A good setlist for the time, of course rather Rock & Roll heavy, and a good sound for an audeince recording. Enjoy!

Not posted much the past few days, had a bit on. My bad.

Here's some Tim for you anyway, audience recorded, but for '72 a very good sound. The band was opening for Frank Zappa, who's audience were not very receptive. In the linear notes of the Boot CD Lee Underwood states that Tim threw his hands up and walked off near the end of Gipsy Woman. You'd think Zappa fans might be a tad more receptive, but then they can be as partizan as anyone else I guess. Enjoy!

Paolo's a former roadie/t-shirts sales person, and with support slots with David Sneddon (he won an impromtu competition to play when Sneddon was late), Amy Winehouse and KT Tunstall, Mr. Nutini spread his name well. His first single release was a free download, perhaps a bit old hat now, after all this his second single got to the dizzy heights of No.5 in the U.K. charts.
