It's a wonderful show and though the internet has enabled new ways of finding music, never forget your radio has some of the most knowledgeable influencers in music.

Son Volt - Reverie Electro Melodier This excellent compilation features tracks that appeared on all five of those albums.
It's a tight well crafted sequence of songs packing tracks into less than minutes. Ideal for those unfamiliar with this US indie band, who stayed loyal to the independent label Matador, throughout their career in the 90's.

It has provided the opportunity to work on a new post and get it shared to all like minded music lovers out there in the blogosphere. This is one all hip-hop heads should enjoy as well as fans of 70's soul and funk. Beastie Boys - Saul's Boutique Original Uploader's Notes: "The quick and to the point version is this is a collection of instrumental versions of the tracks from the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique album.
They were primarily sourced from the vinyl intended to be used for their live tour circathough that tour did not happen as planned and the vinyl went mostly unused, eventually falling into the hands of collectors. There are several versions of the instrumentals from Paul's Boutique around, but most are either mp3 sourced or very low quality. Unless there is an official release of these instrumentals, this will probably be the best quality version available, period. There are some small patches where there were skips and jumps that were unable to be repaired, but you probably won't notice them unless you're really into digging for such detail.
Seriously, I think I covered them up pretty good. Also, the name is from Saul's Boutique having been written in sharpie on the label of one of the show vinyls. This is a project I did with some friends. One of those friends would like to remain anonymous, but they generously provided the raw audio. The other friend is Harvey Cliff, artist and all-around awesome guy, who did the artwork and handled the physical packaging. Myself, I cleaned-up the audio a bit, edited it, sequenced and pseudo-mastered it.
We had some professionally manufactured cassettes made that we gave LP friends and intend to give copies of to the remaining Beasties and the Dust Brothers. Notes about the original album released in Created during the golden age of sampling — that is, before stricter copyright laws were enforced — it epitomised the times. Age of rap music you could dance to. Thursday, September 30, W.
Before things get too serious here at Rock On Vinyl, I thought it might be fun to post a song at the end of each month, that could be categorized as being either W eird, O bscure, C razy or just plain K orny. So, this post consists of most of Gunston's single releases - some I own and some I found on the internet. One that I don't have is his rendition of "Suicide Blonde" so if anyone out there has it, I'd love to hear from ya. But all jokes aside, I've always had the greatest respect for McDonald as both an actor and very funny comedian.
I'm thankful for all the laughs and hysteria that he provided me during my adolescent years. And thus, the reason why I chose to 'single him out' this month. The singles contained in this post are as follows:. S - Present. One of the most 'bootlegged' bands, these two 'Unlicensed' recordings come from two distinctly different periods in the bands musical career.
To kick off, the following is an extract from a tour review, published by the Classic Rock Magazine in July, It provides an in depth account of what it was like to tour with two of the biggest named rock acts in the US at the time. May 12, Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Slash of Guns 'n' Roses hold a press conference in Los Angeles to announce a joint co-headlining tour between the two bands, set to begin July.
James Hetfield guitar-Metallica : Here's the battle - heads down heavy metal versus L. A pomp and pumped-up hair. That's what it is. Bling versus dirt. Axl Rose: We wanted to do a tour with Metallica since the day we started.
We worked real hard to pull this thing together. We paid them a few million dollars more than they deserved because they wouldn't do it unless they got paid a certain amount.
And the only way we could get 'em to do it was if we called it 'co-headlining'. So, fine, we call it 'co-headlining'. But when the shit all went down, the motherfuckers couldn't live with it. Lars Ulrich drummer-Metallica : If it was left to the managers, agents and accountants, this would never have got off the ground. Whenever we had a stumbling block, we'd all sit down and work it out.
Lars Urlich: We probably got to a point where we were being too petty about every detail but, to make it work, the shirts and the passes and whatever all had separate Metallica and Guns versions, with each on the left or on the top.
If that's the kind of stuff it takes to get the tour off the ground July Life magazine reported: The crew accompanying Guns 'n' Rose is made up of about 80 people, including four bodyguards hired, in part, to keep the drug pushers and sex-crazed fans out of temptation's path.
They've formed a family. For some of these people it is the only family they have ever really known. Los Angeles Daily News: Guns 'n' Roses took more than 90 minutes to set up, which was more than enough time for restless throng of concert goers to make mischief.
But not everyone was amused by the debauchery or Guns 'n' Roses' tardiness. Some fans had to leave the stadium early. Those who could stay were treated the usual uneven Guns 'n' Roses set. The momentum was severely diminished by lengthy and pointless solos by guitarist Slash and Gilby Clarke, as well as drummer Matt Sorum.
The band never gained its footing and the crowd slowly thinned. Some of the remaining fans were spied sleeping or just sitting, with bored expressions on their faces. Unlike Guns 'n' Roses, Metallica seems fully aware that this tour presents a marvelous opportunity. Authority control MusicBrainz release group.

The gig itself was a hugely enjoyable one. Overall it was a high energy performance on a large stage that did look slightly like a block of cheese.
Little did we know that this gig would be a very significant one. Overall, I remember it as being a really good performance — the good lady Janet rates this as one her fave gigs.
For this would be the last live performance of this line up that had carried Robert from As Robert stated in It happened half way through the set. Judging by the tone of that statement this was a man at a definite career crossroads. Live Aid had put the Zep spark back in his mind. There was a plan to meet with Jimmy and John Paul Jones in Bath for a get together to see what might happen. As it turned out nothing much did. The rehearsals fell apart when drummer Tony Thompson was injured in a car smash.
What happened next? When I turned up at Leicester University to see a low key warm up date of his new band in JanuaryIt was evident that Robert Plant was at last more than comfortable with his past. For the first time in his solo career, Robert performed Led Zep numbers.
In The Evening and Trampled Underfoot felt like a rebirth that night and it remains one of my favourite all time ever gigs. As for me, well Sound FX proved not to be the future of music retail the writing was in the wall when I saw the design of the counter which was made to look like a beat box cassette player complete with hand rail — most embarrassing! WH Smith sold the chain to Our Price in -a wise move as we were now part of a very successful chain and with the CD boom about to hit, there would be great retail days were ahead.
Writing wise, I had formulated a plan for a major Led Zeppelin reference work. Sensibly he revised that view a year later and went with the idea — the result was the A Celebration book published in It was the beginning of what would be an incredible few months.
Here is the TBL posting that appeared on the evening of September 12, — one of the most important announcements in the history of this website…. Just back from an incredibly exciting afternoon at the official press conference to announce the reunion of Led Zeppelin.
Staged at the O2 View Cinema at Album) after 4pm, promoter Harvey Goldsmith unfolded the events that has. Central to that of course is the late Ahmet Ertegun. This concert is a tribute to the lasting legacy of the much loved music mogul. Harvey went on to explain how he approached Jimmy, Robert and John earlier in the year to do this show. Asked if this was the beginning of further reunion activity Harvey would not be drawn other that to say if they were happy within themselves then he would love to see it.
Other questions from the floor revealed that there were no plans as yet for the show to be filmed for a DVD release and that a ballot was felt to be the best way to give all fans a fair at obtaining tickets. Throughout the proceedings, Harvey talked passionately and proudly of his past association with Zeppelin -and how honoured he was to be staging what he described as an unprecedented event.
I was able to remind Harvey Goldsmith the story of how he once asked me to take a pic with his camera of himself with Ahmet at the side of the stage before the Zep Frankfurt show in Europe So there it was — all of 14 years gone — the excitement was already mounting…and the end result on that night of nights would be magnificent. In addition, it includes books and magazines, over fanzines and has more than concert-related items. All items featured with high quality images.
A Birthday list — a combination of some albums that have been on heavy rotation here recently alongside some of my all time faves…. There was of course much talk of Andy Adams and I relayed the sad news of his passing to a few of the stall holders who knew him and they were of course very shocked. The all had very fond memories of Andy which was heart-warming to hear.
