Re-up by request – August 2014, appropriate day to post too.
Back in 2000 Neko Case and Her Boyfriends topped the Peel Festive 50 with their track Twist the Knife here’s a bootleg of that performance, the quality is not the best but still it’s a fine listen with tracks from the Furnace Room Lullaby album along with a great selection of covers including the Everly Brothers Bowling Green that appeared on The Virginian album, Bessie Griffin’s Lord Don’t Move the Mountain after which Loose (I assume it’s the same Loose) get a shout out, Aretha Franklin’s Runnin’ Out of Fools and Look for Me (I’ll Be Around) by Ketty Lester
Here’s a set recorded at Mountain Stage in November 2007 by Kasey Chambers, the set included the title tracks from my two favourite Kasey solo releases The Captain and Barricades and Brickwalls amongst the five recorded. Kasey has a new album out Little Bird, not got a copy of this yet but the title track I’ve listened to on-line and I wasn’t that impressed to be honest, but I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve listened to the full album, was hoping for something along the lines of Rattlin’ Bones recorded with husband Shane Nicholson which is a fantastic album.

How about a live version of Patterson Hood’s new solo album Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance, along with some commentary and insight into the songs from the man himself – with the exception of track 7 the recordings have being culled and condensed from this recording all credit and thanks to original tapers and uploaders.
By the time you read this I, barring a last minute disaster, I will be on my way in the company of my better half to Birmingham to see Paul Weller at the LG Arena.
Thought it would be a good time to post this, if you’re watching thanks for the anonymous tip off and download link whoever you are, the full FLAC download including interview segments of this performance can be downloaded here along with the artwork – I’ve stripped out the tracks only and present them as 192 bit-rate mp3’s, if you hearing isn’t scarred by having the volume turned up to loud for too long get the FLAC files for quality.
Next week sees the arrival of Find the Torch, Burn the Plans a tasty audio-visual combo featuring the Julien Temple film Find The Torch, Burn The Plans alongside a concert filmed at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May, in addition there’s a CD with 12 songs from the Royal Albert Hall show plus six tracks from Weller’s In Concert performance at the BBC Theatre show including collaborations with Richard Hawley and Lauren Pritchard (see here for the unofficial bootleg versions), all together in an hardback book style with some previously unseen photos of and of course copious sleeve notes.
Great set of Kinks songs (and a solo track) from a performance by Ray Davies, backed by the Dessoff Chamber Choir at the Town Hall in New York City in November of last year, Ray’s band for the evening was Bill Shanley – Guitars, Dick Nolan – Bass, Damon Wilson – Drums, Ian Gibbons – Keyboards, the choirmaster was David Temple.
The photos in the post are part of a brilliant set taken at the concert – you can view and buy prints here
Peppered with classic tracks and a great selection from The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, which by the way is available a Limited Edition (500) Double LP from Reflex.
This is a great Mountain Stage performance from by Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (Jimbo Hart on bass, Derry deBorja on keyboards, Chad Gamble on drums and Browan Lollar on slide guitar), the band performed five tracks from last years wonderful self titled album, which has never being far from my turntable since it’s release.
The good news is the the man himself is back in the studio cooking up another set of songs at FAME – can’t wait.
