Got everything on my list, so I’m a happy camper...
Slaw-When you get a chance, please let us know how the
Live Big Star is. MF has apparently heard it, and said it had
I'm VERY happy with it. I just wish I'd had the forethought to purchase all of the copies for a later sale.
For a recording from a university show, it exceeds all expectations, and then some. On top of that, it really shows how great of a band Big Star was. I wish I could have seen them live!
I own most of their Four Men With Beards lps and while they sound very good, I'd say this one is more analog sounding and extremely worth seeking out. Another solid 9.5 out of ten stars.
I found it hard to stay seated while listening. I just wanted to get up and (move) somehow while listening to Big Star live!
Thanks Slaw. Sounds like the Big Star Live is a winner. But just so I understand, you last comment was a GOOD thing, right ? (-:
Definitely a good day in Pittsburgh, PA at The Attic. Arrived an hour and a half after opening and still found everything on my list and more. I typically stand in line but glad I didn't have to this year.
Al Escobar- Rhythmagic (Sundazed Music/Modern Harmonic) 
Various Artists (29) - Instrumentals Soul-Style (History of Soul) 
Cachao - Cachao's Gonna Make You Dance! (Grosso) 
Allen Toussaint - Live in Philadelphia 1975 (Rhino) 
Grateful Dead - Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ 4/25/1977 (Rhino) 
Sublime - Jah Won't Pay the Bills (Skunk Records)
Hope everyone had a great day..
Did anyone get a copy of Wrecking Ball? How's it?
Yes, a positive comment.
I guess it was another failed attempt at humor.... (since I'm an ageing white male), I didn't really want to say I wanted to get up and dance? It just didn't seem right, although in my own mind, that's exactly what I wanted to do. Ha ha.
@jafant thanks...I listened to most of them yesterday. The Cachao is amazing, although I am a sucker for big horns and lots of percussion. Did you make it out?
Gotcha - that's what I thought. I was also eyeing The Doors: Live @ Aquarius, which I believe is the first session. I already have so many Doors LP's, that I'm now questioning my sanity.
I seriously looked at it, and then came to my senses.
I am curious about the sound quality of the live Doors offering so if anyone has purchased please do share.
Any live Doors is excellent.
I picked up Bardo Ponds RSD release. A double album they did with Acid Mothers Temple. Great catch!
Late response to an old thread, but found a copy of Door Live at Aquarius Theater album and just spinning it now. SQ is excellent and Morrison seems to have it all together. I attended several Doors concerts back in the day and their stage preparation could range from pretty tight to pretty sloppy. Knowing this was being recorded probably kept them from consuming too much contraband before the show.
I think this live set does a far better job of conveying why this band achieved the success they did - a great mix of psychedelic blues / rock that trancended the pop crap that took up the radio airplay of the day. Should be in any Doors fan's collection - it is the album I will play for my kids when I bore them with "tales of the sixties".
The Doors gave us music lovers one of the best Rock debut albums.
Where did you find Live @ Aquarius. I found the LIVE BIG STAR @ University of Missouri yesterday. This was at Aux 33 Tours in Montreal. That's a heck of a record shop. Always stop there when I'm in the city.
jafant- +1 on that. I can't think of a better debut LP. Cheers -Don
BTW - not an RSD reissue, but was in the mood for live concert albums today and spun a recent MOV reissue - Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble Live at Carnegie Hall. This may be SRV's best live recording and this pressing is quite good by my standards. Great way to start Turkey Day.
