Bob Dylan: More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series Vol. 14

Read "More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series Vol. 14" reviewed by Eric Gudas

The challenge of finding something original to say about Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks (1975), the mother of all comeback albums, baffles even the most steely-eyed critic. But Sony has made the task easier with More Blood, More Tracks, the unfortunately titled, overpriced, but nonetheless revelatory fourteenth entry in the Bootleg Series. The six-disc Deluxe ...

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

Given the voluminous prior excavations of Jimi Hendrix' vault, the producers of and contributors to the Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition deserve some kudos. This 3-CD plus Blu-ray set compares favorably to similarly-conceived archive presentations released coincidental to it, specifically More Blood, More Tracks (Legacy Music, 2018), Vol. 14 of The Bootleg ...

Jimi Hendrix: Machine Gun: Live At The Fillmore East First Show

Read "Machine Gun: Live At The Fillmore East First Show" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Dopo l'esibizione a Woodstock, a metà agosto del 1969, Jimi Hendrix tornò a concentrarsi sul trio come formato per le sue esibizioni. Gli Experience si erano sciolti qualche mese prima e Jimi decise di chiamare il noto batterista Buddy Miles, affiancandolo al bassista Billy Cox che già faceva parte del gruppo più allargato che si era ...

Pink Floyd: Obfusc/ation

Read "Obfusc/ation" reviewed by Doug Collette

Lavishly designed and annotated packages on the order of Pink Floyd's The Early Years (Sony-Legacy, 2016) would be meaningless if the enclosures didn't so warrant the concepts. But the fact of the matter is content on the high order of Obfusc/ation 1972 demands treatment comparable to a precious books in an extensive library. The set, one ...

Jimi Hendrix: Machine Gun: Live At The Fillmore East First Show

Read "Machine Gun: Live At The Fillmore East First Show" reviewed by Sacha O'Grady

When Jimi Hendrix walked onto the stage of the Fillmore East on 31st December, 1969, with Billy Cox (bass) and Buddy Miles (drums), virtually no-one would have had any idea what to expect, since this was not The Experience people had paid to see, but The Band Of Gypsys, an entirely different group altogether. As Billy ...

Miles Davis: Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4

Read "Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Il criterio utilizzato dai produttori della Sony Legacy, per questo quarto box della eccellente 'The Bootleg Series,' è piuttosto interessante e singolare: il legame che lega assieme varie performance di Miles Davis con i suoi vari gruppi, non è quello temporale come succede di solito, ma bensì quello spaziale, per di più preso in senso molto ...

Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4

Read "Miles Davis at Newport 1955-1975: The Bootleg Series Vol. 4" reviewed by Doug Collette

There's a theory a nascent jazzlover could build an estimable collection of the music simply by picking and choosing from the discography of Miles Davis and the various musicians with whom he's collaborated over the years. Likewise, the mercurial alterations of style enacted by the man with the horn reflect the evolution of the music itself, ...

Jimi Hendrix: Freedom-Atlanta Pop Festival

Read "Jimi Hendrix: Freedom-Atlanta Pop Festival" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jimi Hendrix' performance at the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in Bethel, NY may be his most iconic single live performance, but as the conclusion of the August 1969 event, it was offered in front of approximately half the 300-400,000audience he faced at the Atlanta Pop Festival roughly a year later.

Contained on two-disc ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Play All Night

Read "The Allman Brothers Band: Play All Night" reviewed by Doug Collette

Much as the current Allman Brothers lineup had coalesced in 2003, the ensemble that came together in 1989 for the twentieth anniversary box set Dreams (Polydor, 1989) tour had tightened considerably (minus keyboardist /vocalist Johnny Neel) by the time they decided to engage in their first extended run at New York's Beacon Theatre and record themselves ...

Jimi Hendrix: People, Hell and Angels

Read "Jimi Hendrix: People, Hell and Angels" reviewed by Doug Collette

The eye-catching metallic tone of the packaging, not to mention the scrupulous annotation in the accompanying booklet, belie the seemingly motley collection of twelve tracks comprising Jim Hendrix's cryptically-titled People Hell and Angels.

Nevertheless, this slightly less-than hour of music documents the period in which the iconic musician, in an earnest attempt to progress beyond ...
