WFUV radio broadcast

This amazing group celebrated the “Nashville” release. This is one of only four shows the Nashville Trio played, all in October of 1997.

I’ve only recently discovered the wonder of Bill Frisell but I landed a pretty good block of live shows from him through the Philzone community.

Wilco are by and far my favorite band making music today. Each album is a revelation. They absolutely bring it live. I got nothing against Jay Bennett or his contributions to the band but freaking Nels Cline is nothing short of genius. I’ve caught them three times live, and I’ll see them every time I can without fail.

This is a nice, long show from the end of last year. Several songs are with the Total Pro Horns who add some interesting sounds to the set. I’m not sure I’d want them playing in every show, bu they do create some interesting noise.

I am a fan of recorded live music. I have thousands of hours of live concerts on CD and on my hard drive. That’s what I’ve been doing here lately – sharing recorded live music. Recordings of live music is nothing new. People have been recording concerts for as long as the technology has allowed. The Internet has simply made acquiring copies easier.

For nearly as long as people have been recording concerts, some nefarious buggers have been profiting from it. Certainly there are always official releases, supported by the band, but there are also unofficial, illegal recordings that make it into record shops for sale at a jacked up price. From these folks, the band sees nothing, and the fans pay through the nose.

Again the Internet has slowly been stamping this out, but some people don’t seem to realize the abundance of concert recordings available for free, and they keep tossing their hard earned dollars towards thieves. Luckily for the masses there are some cool folks who take these illegal bootlegs, burn multiple copies of them, and make them available for free to anyone who wants them.

Call these things liberated bootlegs and get on the bus. This show right here was one that was liberated. The bootleggers labeled it Gravity and and subtitled it Live in the USA, and sold it for a mint. The liberators called it the same thing and gave it away for nothing. Unfortunately the guys trying to steal your money aren’t so good in labeling their products, so there is no date on it. From the set list you can assume it came during the Green tour and given the quality I might guess it came from a radio show. Other than that I have no other information. If anyone out there knows more about the show leave a comment. Otherwise, enjoy!

I’m one of the few people I know who didn’t particularly care for Raising Sand. I had high hopes for it, though as I think about it I’m not sure why (I’m not much for Led Zeppelin, I know very little of Robert Plant as a solo artist, and while I love Krauss’ voice, her songs I usually find to be lousy.) Perhaps it was the hype, or perhaps I dug the idea of an old rocker teaming with the bluegrass queen. Whatever the reason, the record never did it for me.

I like parts of it, some of the songs are good and intellectually I dig the match-up plus the use of old blues numbers, but at the emotional gut level it leaves me kind of flat. The brooding, dark production didn’t help either. Every song felt like death knocking at the door. Which was maybe the point, but it sure didn’t make me want to listen.

This concert though, I like a lot more. The dark production is still there, but less so. In a live setting the songs breath a little more, the Tennessee sun is allowed to shine just a bit. Or maybe they just scatter in a few uptempo songs.

I particularly like their take on a couple of old Zeppelin songs. Listen closely to “Black Dog” it is less godofthunder then the original but a lot more spooky.

I came to Uncle Tupelo backwards. I love me some Wilco, but I came to them late. Though I bought Being There when it came out, it wasn’t until well after Yankee Foxtrot Hotel came out that I became a fan. In fact it was actually after A Ghost is Born was released that I became a fan, but it was YFH that made me the fan, if that makes any sense. After I found salvation through that album, I gobbled up all the previous Wilco albums and then started making my way through Uncle Tupelo.

I love both bands, but I especially love the transformation Tweedy has made over the years. He went from alt-country pioneer to alt-rock hero and back and again. I’ve paid less attention to Jay Farrar and Son Volt, but I kind of dig them, too.

This show is towards the end of the bands career. In a few short months, in fact Jay would declare himself out of the band, though he would continue to tour with them through most of 1994. If their was tension in the band, and by all accounts there was, I don’t hear it here. It’s great music, plain and simple.

The quality is great. A nice warm soundboard with some good audience noise.

Our little chat about Jack White in the Raconteurs got me thinking about this set. You can see from the setlist it is a compilation of various things. It is something like a rarities/b-sides set of songs all done live of course. Sound quality varies from great to close to poorly. If you dig him though, this has some cool stuff.
