Hey, that's good to hear. Actually, I'm a huge fan of the ABB without knowing the after Duane/Dickey times. I only recently re-discovered them. And maybe you, T&A, can reconfirm about another new release of a live concert by the classic ABB: Live at the Atlanta Pop Festival - that must have been 1970. I think, that's a killer, too, whaddya think?

T&A Zebulon:

I haven't picked up that one yet..but there's no question any decent recording of that era of the ABB is gonna be killer.

I do emplore you to check out their new one and report your reaction to it, though. Also, last year's studio release - Hittin' the Note - is well worth checking out. It may be their best studio album since Brothers & Sisters. Has a very cool cover of the Stones' Heart of Stone on it...

mac_daddy dylan 3/26/2004 best sounding source of the tour that I have heard...

and he's playin' "Ain't Goin' Nowhere"

the back end of the double feature will be this fan-created set (which looks wonderful!)...

Keith Richards
"Toronto Blues"
March 12, 1977, 1980 & 81

(the following notes are not written by me)

These are among some of the most poignant songs ever recorded by a rock-n-roller. I put this CD together years ago from some old LPs I had. I have not removed any pops or crackles as I enjoy the nostalgia of "listening to records," and in fact it adds to the mood and listening enjoyment of these tracks. Most of these songs were recorded during Keith's drug bust in Canada in 1977. He was in a desperate state because it looked like he was going to spend time in prison. The sessions started the night before the
sentencing on March 12, 1977. Victor Bockris writes:

"Richards went into Interchange Studios . . .and recorded five songs . . . The most remarkable aspect of these recordings was Keith's rusty, high-pitched voice, which had never been heard sounding like this on record . . .The years of smoking, drinking and staying up for days singing and talking had added layers too-his defensive, noncommittal, negative adolescent voice which had given way to the keenly expressive, edge-of-tears sound of a man straining to give vent to his emotions. . . Listening to him sing . . . one got the feeling that Keith had thrown his whole being into the sessions and was finally unleashing emotions he had never expressed verbally. This was the closest he had come
to expressing how fragile and tortured he often felt."

There are a couple of takes of most of the Toronto songs. The first take is generally Keith on the piano, with subsequent takes that have added guitar and additional harmony: all by Keith. The other tunes were recorded a few years later in 1981 at Longview

" . . . he sat down at the piano and started to play a sentimental . . . ballad . "I suppose you think it's all fun being me. Listen, I never get a chance to sing by myself like this,
play the piano, without some bastard weirding out and asking me why I wasn't playing the guitar and looking mean . . . I bet you didn't think I could play the piano, did you? Or sing classics from the thirties? Well, I can.""

The CD closes with 2 great tracks from the Compass Point Studios during the recording for the "Emotional Rescue" album. On track 19 Keiths "gold-labelled vocals glide competently over what is quite a sentimental song." On track 20 we get "a classic out-take featuring a 'one-sided duet' between Keith Richards and an unknown female artist. Seemingly written by Keith . . . it is a splendid ballad full of soulful ramblings.

Enjoy this very personal look at these never meant to be released recordings.

++ Technical difficulties with the original tape-deck, meant that the last 3 tracks were not recorded. An audience recording from a low gen audience source is used to complete the set, rather than miss them out altogether !!

The audience sourced tracks are :- 1968-10-11 - Foxy Lady, Star Spangled Banner & Purple Haze - the rest of the sets are all 1st gen SOUNDBOARD ......... ++

polksalad69 Hendrix's blues cd. Trying to figure out if it really is blues.
April 10th, 2004 09:24 AM
Sir Stonesalot Well, obviously, it's not traditional blues.

It's Jimi's reading of the blues. Close enough for me.

stonedinaustralia have had "thru and thru" on continuous repeat over the last few days

i've always liked it but am now having a kind of "love affair" with it - tho that's likely to end today as i just bought myself a nice hendrix compilation at lunch time and that is sure to get a thrashing

anyway, re "thru and thru" it is a vintage stones track (imo) in that it manages to evoke that "sinister" feeling that was so much a part of their sound in the'60's - i'm thinking "paint it black", "jumping jack flash", "sympathy"
- just something dark and a little unsettleing (sp?)- that drum sound is both ominous and awesome as are the backing vocals
