As of 6/13/2012, I've declared this blog as DEAD. It's now THE DEAD MEOW. Or something.

Go to my other blog for the latest and greatest from yours truly. Cheers.

Randy Newman :: WPLJ FM – New York City – August, 1971
Twenty-three track radio session Randy Newman cut while in New York  City in August of 1971 for WPLJ FM. Stripped down, solo piano. The  session serves to both highlight material culled from Newman’s first two  albums (1968′s s/t and 1970′s 12 Songs) as well as to showcase tracks from his next full-length, 1972′s Sail Away.

Newman!

An interesting time capsule here, with a rare early performance from Randy Newman, far removed from Toy Story soundtracks.

Scream Thy Last Scream
Here’s something exciting. A recently discovered, excellent quality 1967 recording of Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett in Stockholm! Holy crap. This show blows away other original lineup Floyd gigs of a similar vintage in terms of listenability. Bad news: the vocals are almost nonexistent. Good news: the band is on fire, and the jams here are furious. Actually, since you can hear Roger Waters’ vocals on “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun,” it’s possible Syd just wasn’t singing on this particular night. I wouldn’t put it past him! But seriously, if you dig the Barrett era of the Floyd, this is a must-hear.

Nirvana - Live at Man Ray (Cambridge, MA) 1989 

A few weeks ago, I posted a bootleg of the Smashing Pumpkins at TT the Bears.  Well, here’s another blast from the past.  Former WFNX DJ, Duane Bruce, recently uploaded a recording of Nirvana live at Man Ray (1989).  Man Ray was located on Brookline Street in Cambridge, diagonal from TT the Bear’s Place.  It closed in 2005 and has been replaced with apartment buildings. 

From Duane Bruce…

This is very bootleg! 60 people in attendance on a Thursday night. Kurt had long brown hair and was all flanneled up. Krist was his usual silly self and Chad Channing was on drums. Kurt handed me a t-shirt as we headed for the stage. I read the back of it as I introduced them

Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers
Let’s take a trip back in time, shall we? Not too long a trip, just 35 summers ago, to NYC’s Bowery, where great rock ‘n’ roll was being created on a frighteningly regular basis. This particular night, July 30, 1976, featured two sets apiece from Talking Heads and Television. What I’ve got for you here is both of the Television sets and just one Talking Heads set — sorry, not sure if a recording of the early set exists. But who cares, it’s an embarrassment of riches anyway. The Heads were still in their lean/mean trio phase, still a bit of a work in progress, but pretty incredible nonetheless. Judging from the audience response here and the shouted requests, they already had plenty of die-hard fans. Could any of those fans have predicted that just a few years later, this little Bowery band would record Remain In Light? Probably not. Television’s two sets here are god-like (duh), as we hear the band just a few short months away from recording their Marquee Moon masterpiece. I’ve got a lot of Television bootlegs, but this one is special — Verlaine, Lloyd, Smith and Ficca are extremely energized, playing most of the debut LP (including a rare rendition of ”Torn Curtain”), along with a few other choice cuts. Both Lloyd and Verlaine really lean into all of their solos, Ficca and Smith bend all rhythm section rules, and, to make a long story short, Television basically sounds like the best band ever. Taken as a whole, the two bands here bear very little resemblance to what we’d come to call “punk rock.” I don’t know what to call it, other than awesome. Thanks to the taper(s) who preserved this wonderful time capsule for us to listen to all these years later. If you want to listen to it in the order it happened, here’s the tracklisting:
TELEVISION: 1st Set1. Fire Engine2. Poor Circulation3. Elevation4. Venus5. Foxhole6. Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door7. Marquee Moon
