This concert in Maryland was recorded in mono and went to VHS. In 1991 it was bootlegged to DVD, I think, and still later made into a mono audio CD. This recording is the DVD audio improved a bit with Matrix Spatializer. Link in comments.
A fine year for Leo Kottke. There are 11 tracks - one of which is AIRPROOFING. Leo also sings PAMELA BROWN. This is one of two albums by LK which are out-of-print. Is it a mystery or just a bootleg? Link in comments.
These are all Iowa bands and artists recorded in the studios of Public Radio station KUNI. You can't have heard of these groups unless you are one of those Minnesotans, Missourians, etc. 16 tracks in all. Turn your back - walk away. Easy-to-ignore link in comments.
A blog visitor has assembled a soundtrack of his own for the novel READY PLAYER ONE, starting with a list from author Earnest Cline. It is now 113 tracks and 800MB in size and so is packaged as 3 downloads. Some of you are going to really want this thing. Links in comments.
This is a collection of 12 rarities by the Moodies. The quaint CITIES reached chart position #2 stateside in 1972 and the perplexing LATE LAMENT reached #11 in 1974. The other 10 tracks charted at #26 or lower or never charted at all. Link in comments.
David Lynch and Frank Herbert smugly discuss their film DUNE - before the disastrous previews and frantic re-editing of the film for theatrical release. We find Frank - having taken no spice himself - relaxed, and working on the script for the presumed sequel.
This album is also out-of-print like Curse Of The Hidden Mirror. HARVEST MOON is very nice and perhaps some of the other tracks will improve with listening. Buck Dharma has suggested that a new BÖC album might happen but that was a year ago. Link in comments.
These Aussies did not care for the Punk sound and their product was uneven. TEMPLE OF THE LORD became a great music video, and you might enjoy the tunes JUST LIKE FIRE WOULD and ALL FOOLS DAY as well. JUST LIKE FIRE WOULD was recently re-recorded by Bruce Springsteen.
Howard Scott Warshaw - designer of Raiders of the Lost Ark and more - interviews other Atari designers and Mr. NOLAN BUSHNELL! This is as close as we will get to having been there ourselves. Link in comments.
The brothers did a lot of radio before the age of television. Here they do sketches with Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby, Jane Powell, Mel Blanc, Lucille Ball and many others. About 4 hours. Link in comments.
Godzilla is back in a second film and contends with a new threat - Gigantis. It's all bite-and-go for awhile but Godzilla prevails. A chilling ending follows. Watch it and download it. Link in comments.
FT toured in early 1981 and happened to perform at the Hoff Theater on the same day President Reagan was shot. That explains this tasteless bootleg cover-art. The show was performed in 3 acts and includes material from Fighting Clowns, Thank You Mister President, Lawyers Hospital, and Nick Danger's Frame Me Pretty. It's all very interesting for FT fans. About 2 hours long. Link in comments.
This movie was changed when it was reissued. Music by The Byrds and Steppenwolf was removed, and worse yet, they amputated Candy's final spoken words. How fortunate for the rascals that author Terry Southern was too dead to complain. Link in comments.
Last September Phil Proctor and David Ossman presented "An Evening with the Firesign Theatre (Or What's Left Of It!)" at the Library of Congress in Washington. They performed their sketch entitled "The History of the Art of Radio, Revised," and discussed the history and impact of the Firesign Theatre with video clips, slides, and reminiscences. View or download the video if you like. Link in comments.
A one-hour documentary about Jeff Lynne with testimonials from the Beatles and Tom Petty. Jeff led the Electric Light Orchestra, wrote for movies, produced for the Beatles, and was in The Traveling Wilburys. He recently did a new ELO album. Link in comments.
1973. This was the fourth record from Monty Python's Flying Circus. There is some mischief here because Side 2 had two grooves instead of just one. There were two different audio streams in store for you depending upon how you drop the needle. This trick rivals the Moody Blues record in which Side 2 was infinitely long. Link in comments.
The band made a tour of Japan in 1972 that resulted in this live album. Originally intended as a Japan-only release, its worldwide release made it an instant hit. It remains one of rock music's most popular and highest selling live-concert recordings(wikipedia). Link in comments.
