Omnivore Recordings has released all four sets recorded that weekend in a four CD box set “Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore-Complete Recordings”.
“My God, it just took my breath away,” Jerry Shirley said of hearing the new mixes by engineer Ashley Shepherd. “You feel like you’re sitting in the Fillmore East, five or six rows back. In the quiet bits, you could hear a pin drop, and in the loud bits, you can almost feel the room shaking. And all four shows caught Steve at the absolute zenith of his powers. It’s astonishing. I’m only sorry that he, Greg, and Dee aren’t around to enjoy it with the rest of us.”
“It was amazing to hear the new mixes of these shows after all these years,” says Peter Frampton. “This really was that version of Humble Pie at the peak of its powers—playing in a venue with a wonderful vibe.”
The Dead Weather (Alison Mosshart, Jack White, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence) have released a streaming edition of “Open Up (That’s Enough)” on YouTube. It’s hauntingly fresh electric.
Originally announced on October 2, 2013 as two BRAND NEW studio recordings from The Dead Weather. “Open Up (That’s Enough)” b/w “Rough Detective” are unlike anything else the band has ever done and are both ample reminders of the ferocity of this motley collection of low-lifes, grifters and ne’er-do-wells. These songs are not throw-aways. These songs are not demos. These songs are not outtakes.
The 7″ was ONLY available via Vault subscription (Sold Out). No other 7″ of these songs will be made. The whole thing is pressed on striking yellow jacket vinyl and coupled with a custom glue-pocket picture sleeve, a slight shift from the Vault’s usual die-cut company sleeves.
Is there more to come from this collaboration? Yes there is. The Dead Weather’s plan is to record and release two-song sets until 2015 at which time they will release a full album that has these singles plus many more album-only tracks. It’s a unique long-term plan for new music from this incendiary group. The songs WILL be released digitally, but not until Vault packages have been dispatched to subscribers. As Third Man Records explains, “It’s a unique long-term plan for new music from this incendiary group… The goal is that physical copies are out there first.”
Cream ruled the progressive rock FM airwaves from 1967 through 1969. Their albums were prized by psychedelic and blues rock fans alike. This supergroup formed the first rock power trio and played extensive “live” jams.
One Cream track I played often on my hi-fi system was “White Room“. The song originally appeared on the US release of their double album Wheels of Firein July 1968 and then was released as a single in September 1968. Wheels of Fire was the first platinum-selling double album. Jack Bruce wrote the song along with poet Pete Brown.
I especially love Eric Clapton’s wah-wah pedal on this track along with the kick of Ginger Baker slamming those skins in animated fashion while seated behind the drum kit.
Here are some photos of the blues artists I saw yesterday on the Jessup Green in Westport. Witnessing six bands in the span of seven hours for $25 was a cost-effective way to experience a major blues festival.
