Listen To Led Zeppelin’s Unreleased Live Version Of ‘Communication Breakdown’

first_imgYou might remember a certain live performance from Led Zeppelin that took place in London on April the 1st on 1971; it was recorded and compiled into what is known as ‘Disc Two’ of their BBC Sessions. Yet, when the show was broadcast through British airwaves, the band’s performance of “Communication Breakdown” was excluded. The track clocks in just under five minutes, twice as long as their 1969 Led Zeppelin debut recording.Now, Led Zeppelin is releasing a newly expanded Complete BBC Sessions on September 16th, as remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page himself. In addition to this long-lost “Communication Breakdown”, the deluxe catalogue will also include a bonus disc of previously unreleased music, unaired recordings of “What Is and What Should Never Be”, “Dazed and Confused”, and a never officially-released track “Sunshine Woman”, as performed in 1969.You can stream “Communication Breakdown” below, and enjoy the guitar-shredding of master Page himself, as he trails amongst the rocking sounds of Robert Plant and John Bonham.The compilation is set to release on September 16th, and will be available in CD, vinyl and digital, and it will also come out in a super-deluxe edition with a 48-page book.[via Rolling Stone]last_img read more

Listen To The Complete Audio From Warren Haynes’ 7+ Hour Christmas Jam

first_imgWarren Haynes‘ 29th annual Christmas Jam featured a star-studded lineup that blew the roof off Asheville, North Carolina’s U.S. Cellular Center on Saturday, December 9, 2017, including sets from Haynes’ own Gov’t Mule (with a special appearance by Ann Wilson), Trey Anastasio & Classic TAB (his original touring solo lineup ft. Tony Markellis, Ray Paczkowski and Russ Lawton), The Avett Brothers, Blackberry Smoke, Margo Price, and a “new” band dubbed Les Bros. featuring past Allman Brothers and Les Brers members Marc Quinones, Lamar Williams Jr., Bruce Katz, in addition to featured guest spots from fan-favorite players including Marcus King, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Holly Bowling, and many more.Only a few days later, you can now enjoy the complete audio of the 7+ hour celebration, thanks to taper D. Fries. Read the the full festival review here, or continue on for set-by-set highlights from contributing writer Michelle Wilson.Trey Anastasio Band Busts Out “Aqui Como Alla” After 16 Years At Warren Haynes’ Christmas JamOpening the extensive evening of song at 6:30 pm sharp with her unique piano stylings was Christmas Jam alum Holly Bowling who also provided continuous entertainment between some of the performers. Bowling warmed up the eager crowd with piano versions of The Grateful Dead’s “St. Stephen” and “Cassidy” as well as Duane Allman’s stirring composition, “Little Martha”—the only Allman Brothers Band tune written by Allman alone.Following Bowling, a jovial Haynes took the stage with an acoustic guitar along with Hawaii native and ukulele phenom, Jake Shimabukuro. Haynes traditionally sits in with some of his guests creating one-of-a-kind jams to the delight of the audience. Dueting on the Allman Brothers Band’s “Melissa” and finishing to rousing cheers, Haynes left the stage and Shimabukuro finished the 15-minute acoustic set with two songs including George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”Country sensation Margo Price and her band brought a fresh sound to the Jam stage next, belting out seven high-energy numbers from both her debut and sophomore albums. Radiant in a form-fitting red holiday dress with flowing sleeves, Price and her acoustic guitar wowed with “Tennessee Song,” “All-American Made” (the title track from her latest release and a tribute to the late Tom Petty), and  “Learning to Lose,” a duet Price recorded with Willie Nelson for her new record. Returning to the small stage, Bowling and Shimabukuro kept concert-goers enraptured with “Bird Song” and “The Other One” from The Grateful Dead, and then rounded it out with a stellar interpretation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”Atlanta, Georgia’s southern rock darlings, Blackberry Smoke, kicked off their set in high gear and never stopped. Frontman Charlie Starr sounded better than ever as the band ripped into catalog favorites such as “Fire In The Hole, “Ain’t Got The Blues” and “Ain’t Much Left of Me” with an “Amazing Grace” teaser. Sitting in with the band for an emotional “Free On The Wing” was fellow Atlanta native and slide guitar wizard, Benji Shanks. “That’s for Brother Gregg Allman,” Starr announced, in heartfelt dedication to the late Allman.Adding some Americana into the mix, The Avett Brothers brought their particular brand of folk/bluegrass/country rock to the main stage. With their incredible harmonies, crazy-high falsettos and major fun factor, the six-song set included “Blue Ridge Mountain Blues,” “Laundry Room” (with a crowd clap-along), “Paranoia In B-Flat Major” and “Cigarettes, Whiskey and Wild, Wild Women,” written by Tim Spencer and famously covered by Buck Owens. Finishing on the main platform and moving to the small stage, Haynes sat in with The Avett Brothers to perform Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December” and Bob Dylan’s “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.”The Avett Brothers were replaced by the surprise early appearance of Ann Wilson of Heart, as Haynes and Wilson paid homage to the late Tom Petty with “Southern Accents,” the title cut from his 1985 release and sixth album. Wilson implied that it also may have been dedicated to Haynes’ own mother, who was in the audience for her son’s fabulous event. As if this dedication wasn’t heart-wrenching enough, Haynes and Wilson brought out Shimabukuro and followed it up with the Audioslave original, “I Am The Highway,” in tribute to the late Chris Cornell.Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB took the spotlight next and offered a lively, rejuvenating set including “Gotta Jibboo,” “Burn That Bridge,” “Everything’s Right,” “Aqui Como Alla,” “Sand,” “Dark and Down,” “Set Your Soul Free” and “First Tube.” Anastasio then joined Haynes on the small stage and the two absolutely slayed Trey original “Miss You” and The Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider”. After, Anastasio exited and Bowling rejoined Haynes for a poignant rendition of Bonnie Dobson’s “Morning Dew,” a song covered by many including The Grateful Dead and 31st of February, an early precursor to the Allman Brothers Band.“Jack [Pearson] and Jaimoe were supposed to be here, but they’re not, so we’re sending this out to them and everybody else,” quipped Haynes with a devilish grin. With numerous adjustments, Les Bros. ( a revamped Les Brers, the creation of the late Allman Brothers Band original drummer, Butch Trucks) ended up featuring Haynes, Gov’t Mule bassist Jorgen Carlsson, former Allman Brothers Band drummer Marc Quiñones, and former Marshall Tucker Band drummer Paul Riddle, keyboard player Bruce Katz, and singer Lamar Williams Jr.Appropriately, the supergroup opened with “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More” and then a rotating lineup of guests appeared for each subsequent song including long-time Haynes’ friend and founder of Asheville Guitar, Mike Barnes, on an incendiary “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” and “Southbound,” which also featured 14-year-old guitar prodigy, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer. Charlie Starr came out and played second guitar on “Blue Sky” followed by an off -the-chain “Dreams” as special guest Marcus King and Haynes traded killer licks while Williams nailed the vocals. The guitar duo outdid themselves on the set closer, “Whipping Post,” as Haynes sang out the emotion-charged lyrics, “Like a good friend told me, there ain’t no such thing as dyin’.”Returning to the small stage as the main one was prepped for Gov’t Mule with Ann Wilson, King performed an acoustic set with a horn section and featuring guest appearances by Niederauer and Starr, the latter crooning out the blues standard, “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out.” It was refreshing to hear the young, up-and-coming stars mingling their talents with the established artists. Gov’t Mule, including Haynes, bassist Carlsson, drummer Matt Abts and multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis took the stage at the wee hour of 1:40am, and opened with “Traveling Tune” and “Thorns of Life,” two tracks off their new 2017 release, Revolution Come…Revolution Go. Then all hell broke loose with the return of the mighty Ann Wilson.Church indeed was in session and Wilson was preachin’ the gospel. Her vocals invigorated the dancing crowd and ripped into every last inch of the venue as epic Led Zeppelin covers bounced off the walls including “No Quarter,” “Black Dog,” the Willie Dixon-penned “You Shook Me” and “Immigrant Song.” Thrown into the mix were “Cry Baby,” famously recorded by Janis Joplin and written by Bert Berns and Jerry Ragavoy, and Heart’s iconic “Magic Man,” which even brought people out from backstage. Closing it all out at 3:00am with “Where’s My Mule,” Haynes thanked everyone for coming out and the house lights came on, capping off another Christmas Jam for the books.Listen to the complete audio of the 7+ hour celebration below, thanks to taper D.

My Bloody Valentine Announces First Show In Nearly Five Years

first_imgIrish rockers My Bloody Valentine have confirmed their first show in nearly five years. Pitchfork reports that the shoegaze pioneers will take the stage on Friday, August 17 at Japan’s Sonicmania festival, where acts like Nine Inch Nails and Marshmello are also scheduled to perform.Led by frontman Kevin Shields, My Bloody Valentine shocked the music world back in 2013 when they released MBV, the long-awaited follow-up to their beloved 1991 album Loveless. The group hasn’t dropped any new music since then, but Shields recently revealed his intention to put out another record in 2018. Today’s announcement is sure to fuel speculation about the planned release as well as speculation about My Bloody Valentine’s 2018 touring plans (the group last performed in 2013).For those of you who simply cannot wait for a larger tour announcement, advance tickets to Sonicmania are currently on sale for 12,000¥—or roughly $108. The festival will take place at Makuhari Messe, a convention center near Tokyo. [Photo: Martin Donohoe via CC BY-SA 3.0 license]last_img read more

Bonnaroo Will Have A Fully Functional Laundromat, Because Of Course They Would

first_imgIn a few days, Bonnaroo will return to The Farm in Manchester, Tennessee, where the major mainstream festival will be headlined by Eminem, The Killers, Muse, Future, Bassnectar, Sturgill Simpson, and Bon Iver. Over the years, Bonnaroo has become an exemplar for what happens when a music festival goes corporate, with the festival signing on traditional festival sponsors, like breweries and distilleries, in addition to companies as diverse and hilarious as Totino’s Pizza Rolls.However, in light of Bonnaroo’s new partnership with LG, the festival is boldly forging into new territory, announcing that it will host the LaundROO Lounge, a fully functional laundromat. As reported by The Tennessean, the LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap will take up 3,600 square feet of prime location in Centeroo, right by the big arch. In addition to 25 washers and dryers, the lounge also boasts air condition, phone charging stations, LG TV gaming stations, and indoor and outdoor hang out spots.However, if you’re trying to get your laundry done at Bonnaroo, you’re likely a busy go-getter plagued by the question, “At a music festival, who has the time to do laundry?!” Well, you’re in luck, because not only is the LaundROO free, it’s also fully serviced, meaning particularly anal festival goers can drop their dirty clothes off at the LaundROO for free, and come back at a given time to receive their accouterments washed, dried, and folded.The Lounge will also host a swanky vintage-clothing swap, which was curated by New York’s What Goes Around Comes Around, featuring stylists to help attendees truly capture their festival essence—the only thing they have to do is trade the literal clothes on their backs in exchange for their cool, new look. Happily, any leftover clothes after the weekend will be donated to United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.last_img read more

To celebrate his last show of the year, McCartney gave fans in attendance a mindblowing, 40-song performance comprised of new originals, old covers, and even saw him closing the show with a little help from his friends. Fans who still had the energy to keep rocking after 34 songs were treated to seeing the famous rocker welcome Ringo Starr and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood to help him play a cover of The Beatles‘ “Get Back.”The show began with a mix of covers beginning with “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Junior’s Farm”, followed by “All My Loving” and “Letting Go”. McCartney then began sprinkling some of the new tunes from his 2018 Egypt Station LP into the mix in continuing with “Who Cares” and “Come One to Me”. The hit-filled show would continue with performances of “Blackbird”, “Lady Madonna”, “Eleanor Rigby”, “Band on the Run” and plenty more feel-good classic rock anthems which McCartney still performs at the energetic age of 76.Related: Bob Weir & Rob Gronkowski Sit In With Paul McCartney At Fenway ParkAs fun as the show’s primary setlist sounded, the performance really took a memorable turn when the band returned to the stage for the encore. After starting the closing portion of the set with The Beatles’ “Birthday”, McCartney and gave the fans a seasonal present with a live rendition of “Wonderful Christmastime”.Paul McCartney – “Wonderful Christmastime” – 12/16/2018[Video: Daniel Montanher]“Get Back” was up next, and in addition to the 1969 Beatles track making its tour debut, the performance also featured Ringo behind the drums and Wood on lead guitar. The audience went into an immediate frenzy from the moment Ringo began playing the galloping snare drum intro to “Get Back”, as it’s not every day that members of The Beatles and Rolling Stones share the stage to perform one of their counter-culture anthems. McCartney guitarist Brian Thomas Ray took the song’s first solo with Wood jamming away alongside him on rhythm duties. A huge smile took over Ringo’s face when his former bandmate turned to face him, with Wood also playing beside the drum riser. Wood would go on to take the second and closing guitar solos, helping to send fans out with a fitting end to a show they’d never forget. The entire performance of the classic rock sit-in can be watched in the fan-shot video below.Paul McCartney – “Get Back” (with Ringo Starr and Ronnie Rood) – 12/16/2018[Video: Daniel Montanher]It was reported that The Who‘s Roger Daltrey was also in attendance with some of his old friends on Sunday. Heaven only knows how wild the O2 would have gone had McCartney enlisted the leader of the other biggest band of the 1960s onto the stage to join them in the performance.McCarney and his band will pick up the tour following winter break when they return with a South American leg of shows starting in the spring. The band plans to return to North America next summer with a run of stadium shows starting in New Orleans on May 23rd.

This album is the soundtrack to the demise of the world as we knew it.”The Claypool Lennon Delirium will embark on a three-week tour starting April 10, 2019.
