(Sundazed) 16 tracks.(2015/Sundazed) 16 tracks, Besides releasing two classic longplayers and many more singles (including the smash, ´Gloria´), touring/behaving badly all across America and appearing on TV shows like ‘Upbeat’ and ‘Where The Action Is’, the Shadows of Knight also ruled at suburban Chicago’s hands-down hippest teen club, The Cellar. Over the decades, their Cellar performances have become the stuff of legend. Miraculously, two reels of tape of the Shadows of Knight live on stage at the Cellar (in 1966!) were eventually uncovered by Sundazed. As early as their ‘Gloria’ album debut in spring ’66, the Shadows of Knight had separated themselves from the garage band pack with a heavily Chicago Blues-based, wildly rocking repertoire. Their trademark sound is on full display in this attitude-drenched, anarchic live recording from late in that exalted year. For this expanded edition, the original sets and correct song sequence have been faithfully restored. And to top that, additional and until now completely unheard bonus material is rescued from those old reels. Specifically, added to an already scorching set are previously-unheard takes of ´Peepin’ and Hidin’ (sung by blues legend Joe Kelley), ´Willie Jean´ (with a vocal from drummer Tom Schiffour) and ´Any Way That You Want Me´. Equally important, the packaging now equals the musical contents thanks to an all-new, eye grabbing sleeve highlighted by John Hora’s amazing original photography from ’66. Unlike their comparatively harnessed studio recordings, the Shadows of Knight are presented here raw ‘n’ alive, sloppy bordering on brilliant and with all the subtlety of a bulldozer. Would you want ‘em any other way?

(Keyhole) 11 tracks - Following the collapse of the original Magic Band in early 1974, Captain Beefheart swiftly assembled an all-new line-up to promote his controversial Unconditionally Guaranteed LP. Comprising Fuzzy Fuscaldo and Dean Smith (guitar), Del Simmons (sax, flute), Michael Smotherman (keyboards), Paul Uhrig (bass) and Ty Grimes (drums), they played in a markedly more straightforward style, in keeping with his stated ambition to ´hug the world´. This fine gig, live from the Cowtown Ballroom, Kansas City, MI was taped for broadcast on KUDL-FM radio on 22nd April 1974, and is presented here together with contemporaneous notes and photos.
(MIG) 27 tracks - Recorded live at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany December 10, 1978 together with Pinetop Perkins, Willie ´Big Eyes´ Smith, Calvin Jones, Bob Margolin, Luther ´Guitar Jr,´ Johnson and Jerry Portnoy plus a concert by the Muddy Waters Tribute Band, recorded libe at the ´Loreley´ open air festival, June, 23rd, 1996 - codefree DVD Muddy Waters - Live At Rockpalast Muddy Waters had a great ear for talent and accordingly the formation accompanying him on this DVD was one of the very best: The pianist Pinetop Perkins, drummer Willie ´´Big Eyes´´ Smith, bass player Calvin Jones, the two guitarists Luther´´GuitarJr.´´Johnson and Bob Margolin and harmonica player Jerry Portnoy. At Westfalenhalle Dortmund on December 10, 1978 for the Rockpalast recording Muddy Waters still was at the height of his creative power, his mighty vocals and his splendid charisma on stage fascinated the audience. Muddy´s guitar playing on the Fender Telecaster especially comes into full effect with his typical slow blues solos - and seldom had Muddy such a hot sound as in this tv recording of the WDR. The song selection of the evening consisted of several f his biggest hits, but also less performed titles.
