YARDBIRDS ’68 (recorded live 1968, released 2017)

“Nearly fifty years after the band called it quits, the mythical, often bootlegged, 30 May 1968 live performance of The Yardbirds at the Anderson Theater in New York City, originally released by Epic Records in 1971 as “Live Yardbirds (Featuring Jimmy Page) finally sees proper reissue as half of the 2 LP or 2 CD set “Yardbirds ’68.” The other half of the release are the fabled, never previously officially released “studio sketches” recorded by the band during the same period, consisting of eight tracks ranging in quality from near finished master takes to bare bone instrumental scratch tracks. (…)
Disc one contains the ten tunes recorded live, the big difference from previous releases, official and bootleg alike, is that the audience applause that Epic saw fit to overdub the tracks with, has been removed, resulting in a run time of some four minutes less, but making for a much more enjoyable experience by the listener. Beyond that, the sound has been produced by Jimmy Page, mixed by Drew Griffiths and mastered by John Davis from the master tapes, improving the sound quality infinitely”.

JEFF BECK AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL (recorded live 2016, released on Atco, 2018)

“As fashionable as concert sit-ins have come to be in recent years, such guesting can be the bane of the live performance. So often it is the case that such invitees can interrupts the flow and/or momentum rather than nurturing it. However,  Jeff Beck’s  August 2016 celebration in Los Angeles of his fiftieth anniversary is the exception to that rule: the stream of diverse personnel is of a piece with the stylistic history the event represents. In directing and editing the video, Jim Yukich displayed laudable patience to accurately preserve the ebb and flow of energy arising from the charged atmosphere on the stage. Live at the Hollywood Bowl is quite likely everything the attendee would want to hear at one of the British guitarist’s shows. Likewise, the guests that populate the roster and share the stage with the icon of the instrument are all those a fan would hope for, but not expect to see in a single setting. For instance, Steven Tyler’s role as vocalist is no more forceful than that of Beck’s long-time collaborating vocalist, Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie, but , on “Shapes of Things,” a cull from Truth (Epic, 1968), the flamboyance of the Aerosmith frontman renders moot the absence of Rod Stewart, lead vocalist in the Jeff Beck Group in that era”.

RADIO 68 PLAYS THE ENTIRE FIRST DISC, focusing on his work with The Yardbirds, Rod Stewart (The Jeff Beck Group) and Jan Hammer.

Beggars Banquet is the album that changed everything for the Rolling Stones.

“From the manner it was recorded  at Olympic Studios in Barnes, London, to the track selection, a mixture of rockers (“Street Fighting Man”), blues numbers (“Prodigal Son”, “No Expectations”) and ballads (“Salt Of The Earth”), the band truly came into their own, and the Rolling Stones’ music of today is a reflection of what happened in that studio in 1968, they reached their musical manhood.
The genesis of the epic song “Sympathy For The Devil” is well documented in the Jean Luc Goddard film One Plus One . While 1967’s Their Satanic Majesties was recorded after Mick and Keith’s traumatic and unjust, drugs bust, it was almost too soon to be reflected in their songwriting. Whereas “Sympathy For The Devil”, and much of Beggars Banquet hint at a defiance at what they’d been through, and a strength from the experience. The album also marks a change in musical direction for the band, with the debut of Jimmy Miller as producer, who went on to collaborate with the band on Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St and Goats Head Soup. Miller had also produced Traffic and Spooky Tooth, and co-wrote “I’m A Man” with Steve Winwood. Other musicians who appeared on the album  are Nicky Hopkins on piano, Dave Mason on guitar and mandolin and a gospel choir from Los Angeles.

The only non Jagger/ Richards song on the album, “Prodigal Son” is a cover of Robert Wilkins’ “That Ain’t No Way To Get Along”, which he first recorded in 1929. A year earlier Wilkins recorded the first known song to be entitled, “Rolling Stone”.”
