Anastasio, Trey - traveler [2012]
Trey Anastasio, Frontmann, Sänger und Gitarrist der legendären Jamrock-Formation Phish, kommt mit einem neuen, sehr schönen Solo-Album. Begleitet von den Mitgliedern seiner Tey Anastasio Band und einigen weiteren, hochkarätigen Gästen (u. a. Rob Moose von Bon Iver) hören wir einige brandneue Tracks, wie auch die noch nie zuvor veröffentlichten Studiofassungen einiger Songs, die schon seit längerem im Live-Repertoire von Phish und/oder der Trey Anastasion Band sind. Klasse Teil!

Hier ein U.S.-Review zu dem Werk im Original-Wortlaut:

Traveler is Trey Anastasio's first studio solo album since 2009's orchestral art pop sleeper Time Turns Electric. Peter Katis was enlisted as co-producer; his résumé includes work with the National, Interpol, and Jónsi. Along with the Trey Anastasio Band (TAB), the credits are littered with guest appearances from violist and violinist Rob Moose (Bon Iver), vocalist Kori Gardner (Mates of State), and the National's Matt Berninger and Bryan Devendorf. There are a few completely new tracks here, while the balance includes studio takes on tunes played live by either TAB or Phish. As a solo artist, Anastasio's recordings are usually quite consistent, and Traveler is no exception. The set's first single is a new song, "Scabbard." Anastasio crams in his love of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Radiohead, and pop music. That said, it contains his signature ability to capture a simple melody -- in this case three, simultaneously -- and wrap them in an accessible but harmonically and dynamically adventurous package. His singing, along with help from backing vocalists Natalie Cressman and Jennifer Hartswick, makes the cut a clear standout. Also included here is the third, and perhaps most successful, studio version of "Let Me Lie," and a studio take on the labyrinthine, reggae-drenched prog that is "Land of Nod." And speaking of reggae, perhaps the album's biggest surprise is the cover of the Gorillaz's "Clint Eastwood." While the band has been playing it live for nearly two years, this reading underscores the punchy vocal by Hartswick. "Valentine," which appeared on the live TAB at the TAB in 2010, is treated to a horn-saturated workout here. And in spite of its weave of shimmering synths and tom-tom heavy drumkits and layered vocals, it feels nearly organic. Other highlights include studio versions of the elegiac ballad "Frost" (with gorgeous strings courtesy of Rob Moose), and the raggedy pop/rocker "Pigtail," with its light, funky backbeat and locked-down bassline. Given all the recent activity by Phish and TAB, Traveler reveals that with its four brand-new songs and revisioned versions of live staples, Anastasio's creative force is healthy and his taste is, as ever, impeccable.

Anderson, John - years [2020]
Da werden sich die vielen, loyalen Fans aber freuen: Mit "Years" erscheint endlich wieder einmal ein neues Album der Country-Legende John Anderson - und es ist ein richtig tolles Werk geworden. Der aus Apopka/Florida stammende und heute in Smithville/Tennessee lebende, für seine unverwechselbare Stimme bekannte John Anderson liefert 10 exzellente Songs ab - alles absolut natürliche, traditionelle, unverfälschte Countrymusic, frei von irgendwelchen, neumodischen Nashville Pop-Bezügen. Das ist einfach nur zeitloser, wunderbarer Country, für den er in seiner ganzen Karriere gestanden hat. Produziert haben Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) und David Ferguson, die auch für das komplette Songwriting verantwortlich zeichnen., zum Teil mit der Hilfe weiterer, bekannter Country-Songwriter. Das Resultat ist, wie gesagt, absolut top, da sich Anderson auch in hervorragender Verfassung präsentiert. Es gibt die ein oder andere Ballade, dann herrlich flockige, lockere, dennoch knackige, ungemein melodische, schön flotte Countrynummern (das zusammen mit Blake Shelton eingespielte, ganz wunderbare "Tuesday I'll be gone" beispielsweise erinnert in seinem fluffigen, herrlichen Arrangement und dem schönen Gesang gar an die Eagles), auch mal staubigen Outlaw Country und mal eine rockigere Nummer. Alles passt prächtig zueinander und ergibt im Resulat ein von vorn bis hinten erstklassiges John Anderson-Werk, wie man es ihm kaum noch zugetraut hätte. Super Leistung, Mr. Anderson, wir sind tief beeindruckt.

Hier noch ein Original U.S.-Review:

John Anderson has one of the best, and one of the most recognizable singing voices in country music, and he's in top form on "Years." It's expertly produced by Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) and David "Fergie" Ferguson, and Anderson and Auerbach wrote all of the songs, sometimes with the help of noteworthy songwriters like Pat McLaughlin and Larry Cordle. It's a nearly perfect, 10-song album, too.
A few of its songs address aging head-on, opening with "I'm Still Hangin' On," and again with the title track. The banjo and harmonica accented "Celebrate" also takes a few moments to be thankful for the gift of life. There's also a collaboration with Blake Shelton, "Tuesday I'll Be Gone," that works. The album closes with the semi-Roy Orbison-esque "You're Nearly Nothing," which includes pretty female backing vocals. Although the producers didn't go for it all the way, one can easily imagine a full Orbison orchestration on it.
The album's instrumentation is consistently traditional all the way through, which always sounds natural and unforced. "Years" does feature a rock electric guitar solo, but it nevertheless fits the song's anthemic nature. Anderson's amazingly unique voice is the central focus throughout, though. During "I'm Still Hangin' On," Anderson notes how "There were people placing bets that I'd be dead and gone." Let's all be thankful these folks lost those bets. Anderson recorded one of the best albums of the year, which only makes us want to hear more from him for many years to come.

Blues Traveler - hurry up & hang around [2018]
Sie sind noch immer, bzw. wieder, in einer fantastischen Verfassung. Die großartigen Root-/Jamrock-Veteranen um Mastermind und Harp-Wizard John Popper präsentieren mit ihrem neuen, nunmehr 13. Studioalbum, ein absolutes Prachtteil ab, das die große Blues Traveler-Fanbase vollstens überzeugen wird. Tolles Songmaterial, große Spielfreude, hervorragend hängen bleibendes Material, Abwechslungsreichtum - einfach stark!

Hier noch ein Original U.S.-Review:

Blues Traveler has always been a band that lets their sound, travel, if you will. Along the winding path of their career, the one constant has been change. "Save His Soul" sounded nothing like "Four", which sounded nothing like "Truth Be Told", which sounded nothing like "Blow Up The Moon". They have always been chasing something, but what exactly that is has always been nebulous. In the beginning, the strove for respect. Then they strove for the status they deserved. Then they strove to regain their place. And finally, they strove to make themselves happy. That leaves us with a string of records that hold together, but form a patchwork that draws your attention to a different area each time. And even when they are taking a detour that might not be your choice, there are always interesting twists that make it worth your while to take the ride with them.
With the band having reached a milestone of longevity, the question of how to commemorate that brings them back (nearly) full circle. While their last couple records have seen Blues Traveler injecting their sound with pop songwriters in the search for the perfect collaboration, "Hurry Up & Hang Around" finds them stripping back to the garage band they started out as. This is the most classically Blues Traveler album they have made, in approach, in many a year.
Our first taste of this chapter came from the opening track, "Accelerated Nation", which came out of the gates in traditional Blues Traveler form. Sounding like a mix of all their eras, the song fused their classic sound with the polished writing of their modern work, giving us a song that fits the same mold "Most Precarious" did (and sadly never got credit for - that was a better single than it is remembered as).
Longtime fans will recognize bits and pieces that should evoke a smile, like how John Popper's melody in the verses of "She Becomes My Way" stretches a syllable or two longer than anyone else would write it. Those are the details that I have always appreciated, both as a fan and as a songwriter. Every writer and every band has idiosyncrasies that pop up, which I think got too smoothed out with the amount of collaboration they had been doing lately. Even when they were writing great songs, like "Matador" was, they didn't have those trademark elements. Hearing them again is a treat.
Another one pops up on "Daddy Went A Giggin'", where Popper's melody in the verses, and some of the feel of the instrumental, is somewhat pulled from his solo album, "Zygote" (the song "His Own Hands" in particular). The songwriting on this record is a throwback to the "Four" and "Straight On Til Morning" period, but more concise than they were back then. The band has been constantly trimming away the excess from their old tendencies, which leaves us with a lean record. Old fans might think there's a looseness missing from the recordings, but it shows how their focus has shifted over the years towards sharp songwriting.
The thing about being a Blues Traveler fan is that we can argue over which of their experiments are our favorites. Some of us will love how gritty and heavy they got on "Bastardos!", while others will appreciate the slickness of "Truth Be Told". This one, though, feels like the right record for an anniversary period, because it is the one record since "Four" that best captures every side of the band.
Given how much the world has changed since "Run Around" and "Hook" were near the top of the charts, it's a good decision that the band is no longer trying to chase a hit, and is instead writing music that is befitting of their status. There are clover hooks and strong melodies, but they integrate into the core of the band's sound, rather than sounding like the token attempt to appeal to a demographic that no longer exists. Look, I love "Girl Inside My Head" and "Amber Awaits" too, but even then there no longer existed the proper outlet for them to become mainstream hits.
"Hurry Up & Hang Around" is a record made for Blues Traveler fans by the biggest fans of them all, the band. At this stage of their career, that's exactly what most people want to hear. And listening to the results, I can't argue. This record will make any Blues Traveler fan happy, and it will reset things so the next experiment is more welcome. (Bloody Good Music / Chris C)

Boland & The Stragglers, Jason - squelch [2015]
Die famosen Jason Boland & The Stragglers präsentieren ihr neues, grandioses Werk "Squelch"! Klassischer, traditionell fundamentierter Red Dirt-Country mit einem Hauch von Outlaw-Feeling, wie man ihn besser wohl kaum spielen kann. Das ist durch und durch ehrlicher Country, absolut frei von jeglichen poppigen Mainstream-Strömungen, und dennoch ist er so "progressiv" gespielt, dass er den Zahn der Zeit auf den Punkt genau trifft. Diese "Oklahoma-Boys" sprechen die puren Traditionalisten genauso an, wie das junge Klientel, das sie mit ihren so ungemein abwechslungsreich, erdig und clever arrangierten Songs, sowie dem natürlich rüberkommenden "Outlaw"-Image wie selbsteverständlich an die Countrymusic heranführen. Dabei helfen teils angerockte Momente genauso wie ihre den Zeitgeist treffende Sprache in den Texten, alles bei Wahrung jeglicher, reiner Countrytraditionen. Und die Melodien sind einfach wunderbar. Steelguitar, surrende Fiddle und Honky Tonk-Piano bestimmen das instruemntelle Geschehen genauso wie vielschichtige, erdige E-Gitarren. Tracks wie der starke, Waylon Jennings-beeinflusste, mit feiner Fiddle und quirliger Steeguitar, schön "rowdy" in Szene gesetzte Outlaw Country-Heuler "Break 19", der staubige, pure Red Dirt Honky-Tonker "The first to know", der fetztige, kompakte, wunderbar raue, schnelle, von powernden E-Gitarren unterstützte, gar etwas punkige, dabei absolut eingängige Countryrock-Kracher "I guess it's alright to be an asshole" (brennendes Gitarrensolo inklusive), das traumhaft melodische, genauso lockere wie knackige, mit herrlicher Steelguitar und Mandoline inszenierte "Holy relic sale", die von feinen Americana-Strömungen durchzogene, dynamische, leicht Outlaw-behaftete, fantastische, reine Countrynummer "Heartland bypass", der wunderbar swingende, flotte Retro Honky Tonk-/Roadhouse-Stampfer "Fat and merry", oder die hinreissend schöne, toll ins Ohr gehende, dennoch schön staubig arrangierte, "waltzing" Ballade "Bienville" sind nur einige wenige Beispiele für das durchweg herausragende Songmaterial. "Squelch" ist ohne jeden Zeifel ein weiterer, brillanter Meilenstein in der Karriere dieser einzigartigen Band. Diese Musik ist die wahre Country-Pracht!

Aus der Original-Produktbeschreibung:
October 9th, 2015 marks a milestone for Jason Boland & The Stragglers with the release of their upcoming album, Squelch - the 10th addition to their catalogue since the band s inception in 1998. As they approach nearly a million records sold through their independent trademark, Proud Souls Entertainment, Jason has one main goal... Stay the course. After eighteen years of touring all over the globe and playing more than 125 shows each year, it s safe to say these guys are veterans of their trade and have the rare ability to remain not only relevant, but also in high demand; no small feat in a cut-throat business that has proven it can wash out even the biggest of acts in only a few, short years. Jason attributes his success to his determination to remain steadfast and true to the country music of old, avoiding the constant allure of what many consider watered down, cliche-driven songs that seem to dominate mainstream country radio today. Squelch, referring to the knob on wide-band radios that is used to keep the unwanted noise out, is exactly what this album represents. Eleven tracks of steel and fiddle driven country songs for the country music connoisseur.

Brooks, Kix - new to this town [2012]
Brooks & Dunn sind Geschichte, doch nach Ronnie Dunn kommt nun auch die andere Häfte des erfolgreichsten Country-Duos aller Zeiten mit einem Solo-Album! "New to this town" heisst das hervorragend gelungene Werk, mit dem Kix Brooks eindrucksvoll offenbart, was er auch ohne seinen kongenialen Partner in der Lage zu leisten ist. 12 starke Nummern, zumeist sehr kraftvoll und knackig in Szene gesetzt (der Balladen-Anteil ist klar in der Minderzahl), zwischen traditionellen Anlagen und sehr abwechslungsreichem, zuweilen durchaus rockigem New Country. Gast, Slide-Gitarrist und Duett-Partner beim Titelstück ust übrigens Joe Walsh (The Eagles). Die Musik passt durchaus zur Philosophie, die auch Brooks & Dunn verkörperten, hat aber auch ihren eigenen Pep. Die Melodien sind prima! Gratulation an Kix Brooks zu diesem großartigen Album!

Wen es interessiert: Hier im Original eine sehr ausführliche, aktuelle Biographie mit der Geschichte zum neuen Album im Original-Wortlaut:

"Wish I was new to this town
Just pullin’ in checking it out for the first time”
— “New to This Town” by Kix Brooks, Marv Green and Terry McBride

It’s been more than 30 years since Kix Brooks was new to the town that he made his home, where he married, raised two children and built an accomplished career as a songwriter, singer and half of the most successful duo in country music history, a weekly national radio show host, magazine columnist, film producer, actor, winery owner and active and influential member of the music industry and community at large.

And yet here he is, picking up where he started when he really was new to this town, when his very first solo single in 1983 lumbered up the country chart to #73 before being hijacked by gravity into oblivion.

“New to This Town” is the title cut from the album that he hopes will reintroduce him to music fans, not exactly as a brand new man—to borrow a phrase from a song he co-wrote many moons ago—but as his own man, with his own songs to sing and his own unique story to tell.
Though the song is about a romantic relationship, metaphorically it suggests another interpretation. “When you’re starting out, there’s so much fear that if you screw up or put out the wrong record, you’ve lost that chance to live your dream. At this point in my career, there’s a different kind of uncertainty and risk that the people who have seen me perform for 20 years as half of Brooks & Dunn won’t be able to see me as anything but that. So in that sense, being new to town would be good to be able to do again.”

Kix Brooks’ career as a musician began long before he came to Nashville, which is less than 100 miles from where the Louisiana native was shipped off for high school at Tennessee’s Sewanee Military Academy. “I wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t good,” he confesses with a smile. “The discipline was good for me. It gave me structure and problem-solving skills, which are really helpful for creative people.”

Brooks grew up in a musical family, had his first guitar before he hit his teens, and while in Sewanee, he began playing coffee houses with his roommate, Nashville native Jody Williams. “Jody turned me on to the Opry,” expanding the range of country music that Brooks already loved. “I was a fan of bluegrass, rock and outlaw country, people like Willie, Cash and Roger Miller. I loved the Allman Brothers, Leon Russell, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Asleep at the Wheel, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker. ”
After graduation, he went to Louisiana Tech, gaining a foundational education in reading music and the theory of composition while getting hands-on experience playing clubs around town. Realizing that he wasn’t cut out to be in the marching band, school choir, or orchestra—which were required for a music degree—he switched his major to speech and got into theater, both of which would later serve him well.

A brief sabbatical from school led him to Alaska in 1976, working for his dad, a pipeline contractor. The job was great seed money, he recalls, “So when I got home, I bought a new car, a new guitar, a bottle of whiskey, and I was ready to get back at it.

“I had a band and I did some solo stuff. I could bang on a guitar and open up for just about anybody playing clubs in Shreveport. My plan was to be somebody.”
But an invitation from his sister put “Plan A” on hold. “She called me out of the blue and asked if I would come to Maine and help her with a television production company. So I was doing radio and television production, commercials, and it was a great experience. But I was also playing clubs and was still drawn to that. I enjoyed advertising, I enjoyed Maine. But in my heart of hearts, I just wanted to play music.”

So he took off again for Louisiana but stopped in Nashville to visit with his old roommate Jody Williams. “We stayed up all night talking and playing music, and Jody tried to talk me into staying. He said I could make a living writing songs. I said, ‘A, you’re nuts, and B, I’m going to New Orleans to play music.’”
But as fun as it was, the pace—and the partying—began to take a toll. “I called Jody up and said, ‘Do you really think I could make a living writing songs?’ and he said, ‘Get your ass up here!’”

True to his word, Williams gave Brooks a place to crash and found him a job with a concert production company while arranging meetings for him with music publishers around town.

“Everybody was really nice for about half a song, and then I wrote some more songs and called them back, and everyone was always out to lunch. So I started breaking songs down and figuring out what these guys were doing, which doesn’t mean you can do it, but at least I did my homework and really started working harder at trying to figure out how to do it. I realized it was one thing to make people smile in bars and another thing to make a living as a songwriter in Nashville.”
His hard work paid off, and less than two years after pulling into town, Brooks had a publishing deal and a #1 cut. Some things didn’t pan out, like his first album in 1983 on a label that went defunct before the album was released and a 1989 album on Capitol that went nowhere fast.
But he was making a living—a good living—writing songs for Tree Publishing, where exec Paul Worley took some of his demos to veteran music man Tim DuBois, head of the Arista Nashville record label. DuBois suggested that Brooks write with the winner of a talent competition, a tall, big-voiced Texan named Ronnie Dunn. When DuBois heard their song demos, the rest became Brooks & Dunn history.

In their 20-year ride, the duo recorded 10 studio albums, released 50 singles, scored 23 #1 hits, sold more than 30 million albums, sold out tours from coast to coast and became one of the most awarded acts in country music history.

But in August of 2009, they revealed what had long been a topic between the partners themselves: that after a final tour and a final compilation album, Brooks & Dunn would be no more.

“It was always an arranged marriage that happened to work out really well and produce some great kids. But after 20 amazing, dream-like years, it was time.”
As for the notion of recording a solo album, Brooks took his time—or as much time as realistic for someone who owns a thriving winery, hosts a weekly syndicated radio show, forms a film production company, takes on roles in three movies and writes all but one of the songs for the soundtrack for the western To Kill a Memory, as well as co-writing the soundtrack for a Christmas movie.

“I have a lot of interests, and I wasn’t at that point thinking of what I would do next. I was kind of looking forward to chilling for a year or so. I wanted to take my time. I started writing during the last B&D tour, and when we got done, I kept writing while we were making movies.”
When the time felt right, Brooks approached his album with customary enthusiasm, producing and recording nearly 50 songs before beginning the challenging process of narrowing the field. “There were a few like [the Brooks/Leslie Satcher co-write] ‘Moonshine Road’ that I was sort of building the album around,” he says, “so you try to take the ones that fit the other songs the best, that fit you best, or where the track is just smoking.”

The result is a record that is emphatically and uniquely Kix Brooks—rocking, smoky, swampy and bluesy, with belts of bayou and hits of Cajun zydeco. Nine of the album’s dozen tracks bear Brooks’ name as a co-writer, collaborating with such longtime friends and writing luminaries as Bob DiPiero and David Lee Murphy (on the lyrically clever “Closin’ Time at Home”), Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson (for the mid-tempo musical celebration of “Bring It on Home”), and Marv Green and Terry McBride on “New to This Town,” the title track single that almost didn’t make the album.

“We were kind of done with everything, I had recorded the album, and Jay DeMarcus and I were doing the soundtrack for a Christmas movie over at his house. But I was thinking about that song, so he was nice enough to help me produce it and let me use the pickers while we were working there. He really liked the song, so I said, ‘Let’s do it together.’”

Later, “The engineer from my radio show said, ‘You ought to get some Joe Walsh-sounding slide on that.’ I’m like, ‘Hmm, what if I could get Joe Walsh?’ My manager is partners with Irving Azoff, who sent it to Joe, and he called me up and put the slide on there for me. So that worked out great.”
In a new-to-this-town, full-circle touch, the album also features two songs that Brooks wrote with Rafe Van Hoy. With Deborah Allen, they penned Brooks’ first #1 as a songwriter (John Conlee’s ’83 chart-topper, “I’m Only in It for the Love”), and they pair here on the backsliding fun of “Complete 360” and team with Curly Putman on the groove-and-soul-filled, after-hours portrait of “my baby’s” “Tattoo.”

Now, with his album complete, Brooks is just looking forward to getting it into the hands of fans and resuming the solo career that began long ago when his entire plan “was to be somebody.”

“That fear I had at one point in my career where you’re scared to death to make the wrong move, I don’t feel that way now. But you still really want to do something that is relevant and makes people rock, and look out at a crowd and know you have connected, you’ve hit that nerve. I don’t think you ever get over that.”

Court Yard Hounds - amelita [2013]
"Marty MaGuire und Emily Robison", zwei Drittel der Dixie Chicks, legen nun als "Court Yard Hounds" mit "Amelita" ihr zweites Album vor. Das Werk wirkt deutlich erfrischender als der Vorgänger. Musikalisch ist das eine lockere, wunderbare Reise durch die Gefilde zwischen Roots, Americana, Country und Pop, nicht vergleichbar mit den Dixie Chicks, sondern eher angesiedelt auf dem Terrain einer Sheryl Crow, Mary Chapin Carpenter oder gar Carole King. Tolle Songs, tolle Musiker, ein großartiges Album!

Hier ein U.S.-Review:

Three years on from Court Yard Hounds' eponymous debut, Natalie Maines had returned from her self-imposed silence, touring with Emily Robinson and Martie Maguire as the Dixie Chicks in both 2010 and 2013, but Maines showed no interest in recording new material (her 2013 solo debut largely consisted of covers). Robinson and Maguire, in contrast, are very committed to moving forward via Court Yard Hounds, writing a set of 11 new songs -- many penned with Martin Strayer -- and working once again with producer Jim Scott on Amelita, their 2013 sequel to their 2010 debut. Things have changed in Court Yard Hounds' inner world -- notably, Robinson divorced between the two CYH records -- and that's reflected within the very sound of Amelita, which is lighter and livelier than the carefully considered debut. Some of this is due to the production -- there's air here, letting the harmonies and acoustic guitars breathe -- but, strangely enough for a pair of sisters who have played together professionally for nearly a quarter century, the biggest difference is that Court Yard Hounds have developed their own identity. Robinson and Maguire are using the inherent sweetness of their harmonies to their advantage, allowing themselves to have a gentle touch that sometimes is deceptive, as there is a good amount of swagger and even snark hidden underneath that honeyed surface. Here, Court Yard Hounds embrace freedom to be something different than the Dixie Chicks, which also means they're not quite identifying as contemporary country, either. "Phoebe" is a modified bluegrass stomp and "Sunshine" comes streaming in on breezy harmonies, while "Rock All Night" and "Watch Your Step" are anchored in roots rock, but Amelita is, at its heart, an adult pop album and it's a gorgeous one at that: it glides by easily but it digs deep.

Ellis, Tinsley - winning hand [2018]
“Guitar, guitar, guitar is what this album is all about,” sagt Tinsley Ellis! Und wie recht er damit hat. Blues-/Bluesrock-Veteran und Gitarren-Legende Tinsley Ellies aus Atlanta/Georgia mit einer triumphalen Rückkehr zu seinem Stammlabel "Alligator Records", wo vor über 30 Jahren alles begann. "Winning hand" ist sein vielleicht bestes Album seit vielen Jahren. Gesanglich ist er in Top-Form, das wunderbar straighte Songmaterial ist schlichtweg super und seine Gitarrenarbeit ist elektrisierend, voller Inspiration, kraftvoll, messerscharf, virtuos - einfach herauzsragend. Viele große Kollegen (u. a. Derek Trucks und Warren Haynes) zählen ihn zu ihren absoluten Favoriten. In Quartett-Besetzung mit Kevin McKendree an den Keyboards, Steve Mackay am Bass und Lynn Williams am Schlagzeug, gelingt ihm ein rauschendes, facettenstarkes Blues-/Bluesrock-Meisterwerk, direkt, knackig, ohne Schnörkel, aber von beeindruckender musikalischer Tiefe und Qualität. Ein Werk, vom Beginn mit dem herrlich groovenden, kernigen, direkten, prächtig hängen bleibenden "Sound of a broken man", bis hin zu dem von monströsen Gitarrenläufen geprägten, über 8 1/2-minütigen, packenden, finalen Kracher "Savin grace", ohne jeden Durchhänger. Tinsley Ellis auf einem neuen Hoch in seiner jetzt schon sehr beeindruckenden, langen Karriere. Einfach toll!

Hier eine U.S.-Beschreibung im Original-Wortlaut:

"Feral blues guitar...non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge...his eloquence dazzles...he achieves pyrotechnics that rival early Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton." –Rolling Stone "Ellis unleashes a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the passion of urban blues." –Los Angeles Times Since his Alligator debut 30 years ago, Southern blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis has become a bona fide worldwide guitar hero. The Chicago Sun-Times says, “It’s hard to overstate the raw power of his music.” Now, he makes his triumphant return to Alligator Records with a powerful new album, Winning Hand. Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the blues world’s best-loved, hardest working and most well-travelled statesmen. He has performed in all 50 United States as well as in Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia and South America, earning legions of fans with his guitar virtuosity, passionate vocals and memorable original songs. Ellis is also revered as a guitarist’s guitarist, with famous friends including Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Oliver Wood, Jonny Lang and members of Widespread Panic calling on him to sit in and jam. “A musician never got famous staying home,” he says. Recorded in Nashville and produced by Ellis and keyboardist Kevin McKendree, the ten brilliantly performed, fervently sung tracks on Winning Hand include nine originals, ranging from blistering blues to heart-pounding rock to soulful ballads. As his only cover song, Ellis pays tribute to his greatest guitar-playing and songwriting influences with a Freddie King-inspired version of rock legend Leon Russell’s Dixie Lullaby. “Guitar, guitar, guitar is what this album is all about,” says Ellis, who recorded primarily with his 1959 Fender Stratocaster, his 1967 Gibson ES 345 and his 1973 Les Paul Deluxe. Guitar World says, “Ellis’ playing sparkles with depth and subtlety. Whether playing deep, slow blues or uptempo rockers, Ellis rides a gorgeously fat, pure tone.” Born in Atlanta in 1957, Ellis was raised in southern Florida. He discovered the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream and The Rolling Stones as well as Southern rockers like The Allman Brothers. One night he and a friend were listening to records when his friend’s older brother told them if they liked blues, they should really be listening to B.B. King. As luck would have it, King was in town for a week, and the upcoming Saturday afternoon show was just for teenagers. Tinsley and his friend went, sitting transfixed in the front row. When B.B. broke a string on Lucille, he changed it without missing a beat, and handed the broken string to Ellis. After the show, B.B. came out and talked with fans, mesmerizing Tinsley with his warmth and kindness. Tinsley’s fate was now sealed; he had to become a blues guitarist. He saw Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and every other blues artist who came through town, always sitting up front, always waiting to meet the artists, take photos, get autographs. And yes, he still has B.B.’s string. Already an accomplished teenaged musician, Ellis left Florida and returned to Atlanta in 1975. He soon joined a gritty local blues band, the Alley Cats. In 1981, along with veteran blues singer and harpist Chicago Bob Nelson, Tinsley formed The Heartfixers, a group that would become Atlanta’s top-drawing blues band. After cutting a few Heartfixers albums for the Landslide label, Ellis was ready to head out on his own. Georgia Blue, Tinsley’s first Alligator release, hit the unprepared public by surprise in 1988. Critics and fans quickly agreed that a new and original guitar hero had emerged. The Chicago Tribune said, “Tinsley Ellis torches with molten fretwork. Ellis takes class...

Gallagher, Rory - notes from san francisco [2011]
2 CD-Set! Unverzichtbar für die Fans dieses unvergessenen Gitarrengottes! Dieses 2 CD-Set beinhaltet ein bislang nie veröffentlichtes, in San Francisco aufgenommenes Studioalbum aus dem Jahre 1978, das Rory seinerzeit wegen seiner Meinung nach nicht zufriedenstellender Abmischung aus dem Verkehr zog (jetzt wurden die Aufnahmen von Rory's Bruder und seinem Neffen neu überarbeitet) und auf der CD2 einen ebenfalls bislang unveröffentlichten Live-Mitschnitt vom Dezember 1979 aus dem Old Waldorf von San Francisco. Der Sound der beiden CDs ist absolut in Ordnung! Historisch bedeutende, musikalische Dokumente aus dem Fundus dieses begnadeten Blues Rock'n Roll-Gitarristen.

Ein informatives U.S.-Review im Original:

It's surprising, considering the interesting back-story on the studio portion of this posthumous Rory Gallagher release, that there are no notes on the actual packaging to chronicle its eventual appearance in 2011, nearly 33 years after being recorded in December,1977. According to the press release though, Gallagher clashed with producer Elliot Mazer about the mix on these dozen tunes and not only shelved the tapes, but broke up his long time band after the San Francisco session ended. Out went keyboardist Lou Martin and drummer Rod de'Ath, replaced by skinsman Ted McKenna (bassist Gerry McAvoy remained) to strip down the sound for his next phase. About half these songs such as "Mississippi Sheiks," "Fuel to the Fire," "Brute Force & Ignorance," "Cruise on Out" and "Overnight Bag" appeared on 1978's Photo Finish in different performances. Some like the closing "Out on the Tiles" and "B Girl" will be new to all but the most ardent Gallagher followers. The guitarist apparently mentioned to his brother Donal shortly before his death that he'd like the tapes to be released someday if they were remixed, which is exactly what Donal's son Daniel did in 2011, resulting in these long lost tracks finally seeing the light of day. Despite Gallagher's reservations, everything here is up to his usual high standard and he obviously respected the material enough to re-record the bulk of it with a different band and producer later that year. Electric violin on "Mississippi Sheiks" is a new twist on both Gallagher's blues/rock style and the song, which helps differentiate this version from the more famous one that appeared on Photo Finish. Saxophone, played by Martin Fiero, enhances two cuts, also bringing a unique groove, especially to the lumbering "Brute Force and Ignorance." The package includes a December 1979 live show, also recorded in San Francisco, that finds Gallagher and his two piece in typically fine fettle. They revisit the Taste-era chestnut "Bullfrog Blues" and tear into the rarity "I'm Leavin'" with their notoriously paint peeling approach. He digs back some years for a tough take on "Tattoo'd Lady" but most of the set is derived from his mid-late 70s albums Top Priority, Photo Finish and Calling Card. A closing breathless "Sea Cruise" is probably a nod to Jerry Lee Lewis on whose album that appeared on with Gallagher guesting. It caps off a roaring, electrifying show that, along with the studio disc, makes a worthwhile addition to any Gallagher lover's collection. Even lacking detailed liner notes this is a keeper and an important historical document in Rory Gallagher's short but eventful career. ~ Hal Horowitz, Rovi

Garcia Band, Jerry - garcia live vol. 13: 09/16/1989, poplar creek music theatre [2020]
2 CD-Set! Teil 13 der so geschätzten und beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe aus den schier endlosen Archiven des charismatischen Grateful Dead-Gitarristen Jerry Garcia ist da. Die neue Ausgabe beleuchtet die legendäre '89iger Tour der Jerry Garcia Band, und zwar mit der erstmaligen Veröffentlichung ihres fantastischen Konzertes vom 16. September 1989 im Poplar Creek Music Theatre von Chicago. Die begnadete Band Garcia's mit John Kahn, David Kemper, Melvin Seals, Gloria Jones, and Jacklyn LaBranch, wurde bei einigen Gigs dieser Tour durch einen großen Namen erweitert, nämlich "the big man himself", Clarence Clemons von Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band am Saxophon. Clemons bereicherte mit seinem famosen Spiel die Jammings und damit den Shows in unnachahmlicher Art und Weise. Diese Garcia-Shows mit ihm, so auch der Auftritt in Chicago, waren etwas ganz Besonderes. Die hervorragende Setlist bestand aus damit sehr raren Versionen vieler Garcia/Hunter-Standards, wie "Cats under the stars" oder "They love each other", aber auch höchst interessanten Covers wie beispielsweise Dylan's "I shall be released", The Beatles' "Dear Prudence", The Band's "The night they drove old dixie down" und vor allem einer raren, jammigen 10 Minuten-Fassung des Rolling Stones-Klassikers "Let's spend the night together". Diese Veröffentlichung ist erneut ein echtes Highlight für Deadheads und Gacia-Fans.

Hier die Original-Produktbeschreibung durch "Garcia Family Provisions":

It’s with great pleasure we share news of the next installment in the GarciaLive series — GarciaLive Volume 13: September 16th, 1989 Poplar Creek Music Theatre. For some, the number thirteen is filled with superstition, but we can comfortably say GarciaLive Volume 13 will only brighten your doorstep upon release on Friday, April 24th. The new release, like the previously issued Pure Jerry: Merriweather Post Pavilion, September 1 & 2, 1989 and Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound, once again puts a spotlight on the Jerry Garcia Band’s legendary September ’89 run, but with one BIG addition — the Big Man, Clarence Clemons.
Clemons, the tenor saxophone giant from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, joined the tour at the Meadowlands in northern New Jersey after first linking up with Garcia at the Grateful Dead’s New Year’s Eve 1988 performance in Oakland. Though he wasn’t well versed in the JGB’s repertoire at the start, Clarence’s deep knowledge of R&B and rock-n-roll made him a decidedly quick study — and by the time they hit Poplar Creek for the tour closer, they were really rolling! Garcia, already enjoying one of his best latter-day years following his recovery from a near-death experience, was in particularly fine form. His playing dexterous and down-right otherworldly at times. And as Blair Jackson writes in the liner notes, “Clarence is right there with him, bleating and honking and purring and sounding like all his influences—from Maceo Parker and Lee Allen to King Curtis and Junior Walker—rolled into one powerful package that was unmistakably Clarence Clemons. He’s definitely not laying back, and his assertiveness clearly pushes Garcia to play harder and louder and funkier at every turn.” While the setlist is fairly standard for the era, Clemons helps the band find new heights on old staples like The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence” and a pair of Garcia/Hunter originals, “Cats Under The Stars” and “They Love Each Other.” One relative rarity of note is a positively blistering take on The Rolling Stones’ romp “Let’s Spend The Night Together”, dusted off earlier in the year after having been absent since ’76, which closes set one spectacularly. Top to bottom, this one is filled with magic — and we’re delighted to share it with you.

Die komplette Setlist:

Disc 1:
1. Cats Under the Stars - 9:32
2. They Love Each Other - 8:26
3. Let It Rock - 8:59

Garcia, Jerry - garcia live vol. 9: august 11th 1974, keystone berkeley [2017]
2 CD-Set! Neunter Teil der äußerst beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe. Diesmal gibt es den großartigen Mistschnitt eines begnadeten Auftritts von Jerry Garcia und Merle Saunders aus dem californischen Berkeley (Keystone). Die fantastische Begleitband der beiden bstand damals aus John Kahn am Bass, Martin Fierro am Saxophon und der Flöte, sowie Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann am Schlagzeug. Eine irre starke Rock-/Jazz-/R&B-Fusion Performance voller Feuer, Seele und herausragender Virtuosität. Erneut ein absolutes Highlight für die Jerry Garcia-Jünger und die Deadheads.

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Nine presents Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders' August 11th, 1974 performance at Keystone in Berkeley, CA. Joining Garcia & Saunders this evening were John Kahn on bass, Martin Fierro on saxophone & flute and the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann on drums. As the site of over 200 performances by Garcia in various configurations, the Keystone Berkeley stage likely felt more like an extension of the Saunders’ family garage where the group would often practice. It was a space without pressure or pretense — one in which they could freely experiment with arrangements, new repertoire and, most of all, just jam.
Saunders’ influence on Garcia’s musical development is plainly heard on GarciaLive Volume Nine. As Garcia once noted in an interview, "Saunders filled me in on all those years of things I didn’t do. I’d never played any standards; I’d never played in dance bands. I never had any approach to the world of regular, straight music. He knew all the standards, and he taught me how bebop works. He taught me music.” While the evening’s setlist focuses primarily on standards, the approach is anything but regular or straight. A free-spirited version of The Four Tops’s R&B classic “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got)”, one of the evening’s easy highlights, showcases Garcia & Saunders' ability to reimagine standards through inventive arrangements and fiery virtuosity permeated with soul. Other standouts from this performance include a surging “(I’m A) Roadrunner” and an extended take on Jimmy Cliff’s “The Harder They Come” which clocks in at nearly 20 minutes.

Die komplette Setlist:

Disc 1:
1. That's What Love Will Make You Do - 13:14
2. La La - 17:06
3. It Ain't No Use - 10:57
4. Mystery Train - 13:32

Disc 2:
1. The Harder They Come - 19:10
2. Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got) - 17:00
3. It's Too Late - 9:06
4. (I'm A) Roadrunner - 10:42
5. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - 6:33

Garcia, Jerry & Merl Saunders - garcia live vol. 12: january 23rd 1973, the boarding house [2019]
3 CD-Set! Zwölfter Teil der beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe. Mitgeschnitten von den berühmten Grateful Dead Archivisten Betty Cantor und Rex Jackson gibt es diesmal eine grußartige, bislang unveröffentlichte Performance von Jerry Garcia und Merle Saunders mit ihrer Band (mit Bassist John Kahn und Drummer Bill Vitt, plus Gastsängerin Sarah Fulcher) aus dem Boarding House in San Francisco, CA vom 23. Januar 1973. Rares Songmaterial! Die Deadheads freut's!

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume 12: January 23rd, 1973 The Boarding House presents Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders’ complete and previously uncirculated performance at the storied downtown San Francisco venue. Mixed by Jonathan Wilson and Dave Cerminara from the original 16-track recordings captured by Betty Cantor and Rex Jackson.
Captured nearly two years after debuting their amorphous combo, GarciaLive Volume 12 finds Garcia and Saunders continuing to stretch the bounds of R&B standards and foundational rock & roll on the front-end of a three-night midweek run. The core of Garcia, Saunders, bassist John Kahn and drummer Bill Vitt are joined here by vocalist Sarah Fulcher whose tenure with the group was brief but revolutionary. Cut from the same cloth as her bandmates, Fulcher is a fearless improviser who could make up words and lead lines in the moment. On a rollicking version of Martha and the Vandellas’ “Honey Chile”, Fulcher showcases her abilities as a self-described “jam singer” leading, as Jesse Jarnow notes in the liner note essay, an "ebullient jam that turns the Motown bounce inside out and lands in a lithe descending pattern not dissimilar to what Dead tapers labeled the “Mind Left Body” theme.” Other highlights include a pair of Ray Charles staples “Lonely Avenue” and “Georgia On My Mind” which showcase the band’s ability to play it “straight.” Straight of course is relative with Garcia/Saunders & co extending these soul-soaked performances well beyond the 10 minute mark as only they can.

Die komplette Setlist:

Disc 1:
1. Expressway (To Your Heart) - 15:07
2. It’s Too Late - 7:33
3. The System - 20:03
4. Honey Chile - 13:49
5. Money Honey - 7:36

5. I Was Made To Love Her - 12:09
6. Lonely Avenue - 12:29
7. Go Climb A Mountain - 14:24

1. That’s All Right, Mama - 11:18
2. Georgia On My Mind - 15:18

Gov't Mule - the georgia bootleg box ~ 6 cd live-set [2012]
6 CD-Set!
WIR HABEN DIE ORIGINAL U.S.-AUSGABE!
Wieder mal ein Fest für die Mule-Heads!
Die großartige, 6 CDs umfassende "Georgie Bootleg Box" enthält insgesamt 3 komplette Konzerte der aussergewöhnlichen Blues-/Southern-/Jamrock-Band um den genialen Gitarristen Warren Haynes, alle mitgeschnitten im Jahre 1996, als die Band gerade mal 2 Jahre bestand. Wir hören hier also die legendäre Original-Besetzung mit dem unvergessenen Allen Woody am Bass. Die Band hatte schon immer eine besondere und sehr enge Beziehung zum U.S.-Bundesstaat Georgia. Nicht zuletzt fanden seinerzeit im "Big House" der The Allman Brothers Band in Macon die ellerersten Session von Warren Haynes, Matt Abts und Allen Woody statt. Konsequent also, dass die Truppe nun diese wunderbaren Live-Shows ihren unzähligen Fans zugänglich macht. Im übrigen tauchten auch damals schon bei den Mule-Shows immer mal wieder illustre, hoch interessante Gäste auf. Hier waren das zum Beispiel der blutjunge Derek Trucks (The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band) und Tinsley Ellis. Gov't Mule in ihrem Element - und die Fans feiern...

Hier ein Statement von Warren Haynes zu dieser großartigen Veröffentlichung im Original-Wortlaut:
Those of you that have followed the Mule's history know that our connection with the state of Georgia is a deep one. Our first rehearsals were at the one-time living quarters of the Allman Brothers Band known as The Big House (now the ABB museum) in Macon, GA. Some later rehearsals took place at what used to be the legendary Capricorn Recording Studio in Macon while recording the song GONNA SEND YOU BACK TO GEORGIA for the HOUND DOG TAYLOR Tribute CD. A lot of our earliest shows were in Georgia as well so a lot of our growth as a band took place in front of Georgia audiences.
Most Mule fans know also that two of our official "live" releases were recorded on back to back New Year's Eves (1998 and 1999) at the Roxy Theater in Atlanta. Venues like the Roxy and the Georgia Theater in Athens were staples in our early touring schedule (while watching an episode of the TV show CITY CONFIDENTIAL that took place in Athens I got a chuckle seein GOV’T MULE on the marquis as they scanned past the Georgia Theater).
Having recently been reminded of these 3 shows from '96, and of the fact that they had been recorded and mixed by Doug Oade back in the day, I found myself listening to these recordings for the first time in fifteen years. I was instantly taken with the visceral nature of the music along with the rawness of the way that it was captured. The Mule was barely two years old at this time and what we hear here, along with many songs from our first CD, are the works in progress of many songs that would later wind up on DOSE and in some cases LIFE BEFORE INSANITY. This was at a time in our career when our repertoire was small but constantly growing, not unlike our fan base.
Enjoy! (Warren Haynes)

Grateful Dead - crimson, white & indigo: philadelphia, july 7, 1989 [2010]
3 CD & 1 DVD-Set! 7. Juli 1989 im JFK-Stadium von Philadelphia! Das komplette Konzert, sowohl auf 3 CDs, als auch auf DVD! Die DVD spielt knapp 3 Stunden (ebenso natürlich die CDs) und ist "code free" (auf jedem DVD-Player abspielbar)! Exzellente Bild- und Tonqualität! Die CDs sind in HDCD gemastert, die DVD bietet 2.0 Stereo und 5.1 Surround Mixes!

Hier die offizielle Grateful Dead Release-Infos zu diesem 3CD/DVD-Pavckage:

Here’s a cool way to kick off the new year and decade: Coming soon is a fantastic new release called Crimson, White and Indigo, a DVD/3-CD set that captures every second of the Grateful Dead’s superb July 7, 1989 concert at Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Stadium. If you loved the popular 2005 DVD/CD release Truckin’ Up to Buffalo, from July 4, 1989, well, this is the very next show: why, it’s practically like being on tour without having to pitch in gas money, eat bad road food, swelter in the heat or score a miracle ticket. Nope, all the work has been done for you—from the crisp multiple-camera shoot (with no video effects, you’ll be happy to hear) produced from the tastefully executed live screen video feed directed by long-time Grateful Dead collaborator and concert video guru Len Dell'Amico, to the crystal clear and powerful audio, mixed from the original 24-track analog tapes in both Dolby Digital stereo and 5.1 surround (for the DVD), and mastered in HDCD (for the CD). But the proof is (always!) in the playing, and this show from the sizzling summer of ’89 tour is sure to please both hard core and casual fans with its energy, diverse song list and passionate playing.

Two years removed from the craziness that surrounded the “comeback” tour of 1987 and the Dead’s unprecedented flirtation with mainstream success—thanks to “Touch of Grey” and the In the Dark album—the group was still riding the crest of that wave and attracting thousands of new fans with each passing tour. The summer of ’89 began in style for the Dead on the solstice itself with a nationally televised/broadcast concert from Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif. A week and a half later, the GD circus hit the road for seven East Coast stadium shows, followed by a handful in Midwest amphitheaters. The group was in excellent form throughout, offering a great selection of old and recent favorites, and polishing some of the new songs which would make up their album-in-progress at the time, Built to Last. Visually, the Dead’s stage set that summer was perhaps the most spectacular they ever mounted—designed by noted Czech artist Jan Sawka, it consisted of dozens of enormous painted canvas panels covered with various patterns, colors and shapes—some abstract, some concrete; quite an amazing sight in an enormous stadium.

In what would turn out to be the final rock concert in Philly’s JFK Stadium (the first was The Beatles in August 1966; the aging stadium itself dated back to 1926), the Grateful Dead come out on a brutally hot afternoon (after a fine opening set by Bruce Hornsby & the Range) with rock ’n’ roll on their minds. “Hell in a Bucket” is an appropriate opening choice for a day that is nearly hot as Hades, and then Jerry takes the party to the next level with a truly inspired “Iko Iko.” He’s all smiles, and that’s always a good sign! From there, the first set dips into some blues (“Little Red Rooster”), Hunter-Garcia classics like “Ramble on Rose” and “Loser,” a potent version of Dylan’s “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again,” a wonderfully exploratory version of “Let It Grow,” and finally, Brent Mydland’s still-newish anthem “Blow Away,” which is one of his finest performances of that rockin’ tune.

You gotta love a second set that opens with a warm and inviting “Box of Rain”—peppy and nicely sung—and then right on its heels a “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire on the Mountain” that is as “up” and celebratory as you could hope for: The “Scarlet” breezes along with joyous purpose, and the “Fire” hits all sorts of mighty peaks; at nearly 25 minutes, it’s a spectacular pairing. “Estimated Prophet” is marked by a smoldering intensity and then the jam that follows settles into the majestic Hunter-Garcia ballad “Standing on the Moon,” surely one of their greatest late-era compositions, and played only seven times before this standout version. The DVD depiction of the “Rhythm Devils” percussion duel gives us a fascinating glimpse of the tools and techniques Mickey and Bill used to create their magical alchemy, and then, following “Space,” the band launches into a hair-raising, careening “Other One” (dig how the camera shows us Phil’s rumbling bass intro up close!), Jerry takes us down to the docks of the city for an emotional “Wharf Rat,” and Bob gets back into party-mode for the concluding “Lovelight.” The encore of Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” offers a beautiful grace note for a show that has taken us through so many different spaces and moods.

The beautifully designed package for Crimson, White and Indigo (the name comes from a line in “Standing on the Moon,” of course) includes loads of great photos by Bob Minkin and an essay from veteran Grateful Dead observer Steve Silberman. All in all it’s a wonderful show from a great year!

Grateful Dead - three from the vault [2007]
2 CD-Set! Ein weiteres, historisch überaus bedeutsames Konzert aus dem schier unerschöpflichen Fundus großer Grateful Dead-Auftritte erblickt nun endlich "offiziell das Licht der Welt", und zwar eines auf das die Deadheads schon lange gewartet haben. Rund 15 Jahre nach "Two from the vaults", der damals zweiten Veröffentlichung aus den Archiven der "Multitrack Master Tapes", und dem ursprünglich geplanten VÖ-Termin, erscheint nun die phantastische Show vom 19. Februar 1971 aus dem wundervollen Capitol Theatre von Port Chester/NY, die Grateful Dead-Soundman Dan Healy seinerzeit für den finalen, ditten Teil der "Vaults"-Serie auswählte. Grateful Dead befanden sich damals, nach ersten kommerziellen Erfolgen mit "Workingman's Dead" und "American beauty", in einem frühen, überragenden Kreativitäts-Hoch! Die 71iger "Port Chester"-Konzerte gelten noch heute zu den gepriesendsten der Band aus dieser Phase. So spielte man während dieser Show beispielsweise erst zum zweiten Mal überhaupt die heutigen Klassiker "Bertha" und "Playing in the band" (den Abend zuvor, am 18.2.1971, gab's an gleicher Stelle die Premiere), letzteres in einer prächtigen, noch recht ungeschliffenen, ursprünglichen Version, die aber schon damals jene Magie ausstrahlte, die dieser Song noch heute auf das Publikum ausübt. "Bird song" und "Deal" hatten an diesem Abend gar ihre Uraufführung. Auch darüber hinaus erleben wir ein höchst interessante Tracklist! Großartiges, komplettes Konzert (gut 140 Minuten)! Hier noch ein kleiner Auszug aus einem Kommentar der Verantwortlichen zur Veröffentlichung: "Three From the Vault was originally set to come out in the spring of 1993, sometime around the 20th anniversary of Pigpen’s death. Nearly 15 years later it still stands as a fine tribute to him, and as a document of this band beyond description in a time of triumph and transition." Noch eines: Der Sound ist, vor allem gemessen an der damaligen Zeit und Aufnahmetechnik, einfach grandios! Das 12-seitige Booklet im schönen Digipack enthält "a lively historical essay by Gary Lambert, notes from mastering engineer Joe Gastwirt and a number of rare photos". Unverzichtbar für alle Anhänger dieser unvergessenen Jamrock-Veteranen!
