Source: FM Broadcast
UK

 

The Yardbirds’ performance at Stockholm’s Concert Hall in Sweden, on 4 April 1967 took place after many months of touring, during which the Yardbirds had been to the United States twice and as far away as Australia and New Zealand. March of 1967 found them briefly back home again, however, in Sweden the band (now a foursome featuring Jimmy Page on guitar) did little in the way of promoting it, preferring to stick mainly to crowd pleasers like “Heart Full Of Soul”, “Shapes Of Things” and “Over Under Sideways Down”. This is a high quality soundboard recording that originally aired on Swedish radio.

Line up:

Jimmy Page: guitar,
Jim McCarty: drums,
Chris Dreja: bass,
Keith Relf: vocals, harmonica

 

SIDE A:
1. Shapes Of Things
2. Heart Full Of Soul
3. Mr. You’re A Better Man Than I
4. Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way

SIDE B:
1. Over Under Sideways Down
2. Little Games
3. My Baby
4. I’m A Man

Fleetwood Mac – 25 Years The Chain (4CD Boxset)

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsOriginal Release Date:1992 (Re-issue June 11, 2012)

This four disc box set remains an excellent overview of the band since around 1974, but fans of the earlier years featuring Bob Welch and Peter Green are likely to feel a little shortchanged with too much emphasis on the Buckingham/Nicks albums.One of the attractions of this box was the inclusion of some ‘alternate takes’. They are noted below in the track listing, although many of them are very similar to the originals, and non-fanatics might struggle to tell the difference.

Line up:

Mick Fleetwood
John McVie
Jeremy Spencer
Christine Mcvie
Stevie Nicks
Lindsey Buckingham
Peter Green
Rick Vito
Danny Kirwan
Bob Welch
Billy Burnette
Bob Weston

Mick Abrahams’ Blodwyn Pig – All Tore Down Live

fc

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsRelease Date: March 04, 2003
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock, Pop Rock, Rythm’n’Blues
Label: Sanctuary Records Fontana
UK

7aa7ef57cc2210ad39e6e9b35ae6df4f

It would be difficult to imagine a better live album coming from the likes of the Blodwyn Pig. The music is pure R&B, mid-’60s British style only more soulful than most of those bands ever got–Abrahams and company perform dazzling, passionate renditions of their best songs, including « Lies, » a tribute to Alexis Korner (« I Wonder Who »), and even an extended (17 minutes, no less) version of « Cat’s Squirrel, » a song that Abrahams brought to Jethro Tull’s This Was back in 1968. One of those rare cases–you might say a unique example–of a revamped, reformed sixties/seventies band outdoing its original incarnation on every count.

Line up:

Mick Abrahams (vocals, guitar);
Dave Lennox (keyboards);
Mike Summerland (bass);
Graham Walker (drums).

The Maynard Brothers – Nasty Packages


Original Release Date: 01/07/2003
Genre: Blues/Pop/Rock
Label: Pacificsol, Llc

Coined ‘ a blues-afflicted, roadhouse-rock group’. This is likely the most eclectic blues CD I’ve ever heard. It is a very delightful blend of blues, folk, classic and southern rock. The original songs offer great lyrics and instrumentation, and fine vocals. Tracks change between driving electric blues and rock, and tasty acoustic ballads. The addition of a nice violin and female vocals on a few tunes mixes it up even more, The variety of sound styling makes for enjoyable listening and offers something for everyone.

Line up:

Erv Maynard – Guitar
Jeff Maynard – Bass,Throat
Harold « Clutch » Reiser – Drums,Percussion
Gary « Zeke » Bracjewski – Guitar

Mike Zito – Greyhound

Release Date : 19/07/2011
Genre : Rock/Pop, Blues
Label : Eclecto Groove

Mike Zito’s latest release « Greyhound » is the continuation of the songwriting process established by Zito on his two previous and critically acclaimed recordings on Eclecto Groove Records. His music still retains its bluesy Americana charm while also emphasizing that dusty, big wide-open Texas sound. Here, we find Zito exploring more personal and introspective themes; inspired by the Greyhound bus that helped carry him on his way out of town as a young man, ultimately steering him onto his current pathway and direction in life.
« At times it seems Zito can’t possibly dig any deeper inward, exposing a masterful songwriter filled with grit and tumult, yet savvy enough to carry a radio-ready melody. »- Living Blues (p.52)

Line up:

Brady Blade – vocals, drums
Anders Osborne – guitar, background vocals
Carl Dufrene – vocals
Mike Zito – vocals, guitar

01. Roll On
