Dave Davies - Decade

Dave Davies - Decade - 2018
Dave Davies is famed for being one half of the warring brothers at the helm of The Kinks – and for popularising the distorted guitar sound after physically slashing his amp in the ‘60s. Though overshadowed by Ray as Kinks songwriter, Dave was responsible for a few of the North London band’s best songs, including ‘Susannah’s Still Alive’ and ‘Death Of A Clown’.

Lately, the Davies brothers have been back in the news as Ray is keen to bury the hatchet and reunite the band that, arguably, were the biggest inspiration on the ‘90s Britpop scene three decades after they formed. Dave confirms that he’d “love to play on stage with [his] brother”.

In the meantime, there’s ‘Decade’, a collection of songs and demos that Dave recorded throughout the ‘70s, a prolific period for The Kinks and one which saw the establishment of their Konk Studio.

The original recordings for ‘Decade’ were unearthed by Davies’ sons Simon and Martin from “under beds, in attics, in storage”, and have been newly mixed and mastered. Some of the musicians who contributed to tracks include longtime Kinks drummer Mick Avory, who appears on ‘If You Are Leaving’ and Dave’s nephew, Phil Palmer, a guitarist who’s worked with Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey and many others.

Steve Marriott's Packet of Tree - Watch Your Step - The Final Perfornances Live 91 (Re-post)

Steve Marriott's Packet of Tree - Watch Your Step - The Final Perfornances Live 91 - 2017

This 4CD box set lovingly documents the final musical years of a true legend, a great songwriter, musician, and formidable frontman. Steve Marriott was sadly taken from us prematurely at the age of 44 on the 30th April 1991. Vocalist and guitarist in such great bands as Small Faces and Humble Pie, Steve clearly had so much more to give, as is evidenced here, and this box set attempts to pay respect to the inspirational talent that is Steve Marriott by compiling four of his last ever live shows from his final year with us in 1991.

These live sets contain many old favourite Marriott classics such as ‘Itchycoo Park’, ‘All or Nothing’, ‘Whatcha Gonna Do About It’ and ‘Big Train Stops at Memphis’, live Packet of Three staples, a smattering of rhythm & blues standards, plus a number of Chuck Berry classics in ‘Talking ‘Bout You’ and ‘Memphis Tennessee’. This collection of live sets demonstrates the fact that not only was Steve an immense performer throughout his whole career, but that he was sadly taken from us far too early.

Billy Cox - Unfiltered Billy Cox

Billy Cox - Unfiltered Billy Cox - 2014

“Saying some things, playing some music and having some fun”, so says Billy Cox. And that is exactly what The Last Gypsy and Bassist for the Legendary and Ultimate Power Trio, Band Of Gypsys and Jimi Hendrix Experience is doing on UNFILTERED-BILLY COX...It is an effort of Love and since M&P Productions is a complete in-house operation, the freedom to be less technical but more creatively receptive was experienced more than ever…Billy remarked, “it felt like I was back at the board, sitting next to Jimi at Electric Lady”. As a matter of fact at least a couple of times while working, Billy would grin and remark, “Oh, yeah, thank you, Jimi got it”.

UNFILTERED BILLY COX is refreshing with blemishes and all because from beginning to the end the power of love was the guide and that love is being sent out to you.

The Who - Live From Toronto

The Who - Live From Toronto - 1982

From Wikipedia
Live from Toronto is a double live album by The Who recorded during the last concert of the It's Hard Tour at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, 17 December 1982. These performances were originally broadcast live on cable TV and FM radio across the U.S. and Canada. It was later released in the early  1980s on VHS video tape.

This 2006 edition of the concert was also released as a DVD. Both the DVD and double CD are legal releases, but they are not considered to be authorized products by the band and/or its management

Keyboard player Tim Gorman performed with The Who on the 1982 tour. Tim reunited with the group in 2006 to record overdubs for the re-release of this material.

Three songs performed at this concert are not included on the album or the DVD: Behind Blue Eyes, Dr. Jimmy and Cry If You Want. However, the performances of the two former were released on Who's Last* and the performance of Cry If You Want from this show was included on the 1997 remastered version of the It's Hard CD. Those two songs do appear on Who's Last, but are not from this Farewell Concert in Toronto; they come from a different concert that took place 3 days earlier in Cleveland, as do most of the songs on that album.

Shimigami, deus da morte, um louco está por vir

Está por vir, um louco está por vir.,
Shimigami, deus da morte, um louco está por vir

Agora, entre meu ser e o ser alheio, a linha de fronteira se rompeu

Aonde a pele preta possa incomodar
Um litro de Pinho Sol pra um preto rodar
Pegar tuberculose na cadeia faz chorar
Aqui a lei dá exemplo: mais um preto pra matar
Colei num mercadinho dum bairro que se diz pá
Só foi meu pai encostar pros radin tudin inflamar
Meu coroa é folgado das Barra do Ceará
Tem um lirismo bom lá, louco pra trabaiar
Num toque de tela, um mundo à sua mão
E no porão da alma, uma escada pra solidão
Via satélite, via satélite
15% é Google, o resto é deep web
Na guerra do tráfico, perdemo vários ente
Plano de saúde de pobre, fi, é não ficar doente
Está por vir, um louco está por vir
Shimigami, deus da morte, um louco está por vir
Véio, preto, cabelo crespo
Made in Favela é aforismo pra respeito
Mondubim, Messejana, Grajaú, aqui é sem fama
Nos ensinamentos de Oxalá, isso é bacana
Na porta do cursinho, sim, docim de campana
LSD, me envolver, tem a manha
Diz que é contra o tráfico e adora todas as crianças
Só te vejo na biqueira, o ativista da semana

La La Land é o caralho, SP é Glorialândia

Novo herói da Disney é Craquinho, da Cracolândia
Máfia é máfia e o argumento é mandar grana
Em pleno carnaval, fazer nevar em Copacabana
1 por rancor, 2 por dinheiro
3 por dinheiro, 4 por dinheiro
5 por ódio, 6 por desespero
7 pra quebrar a tua cabeça num bueiro
Enquanto isso a elite aplaude seus heróis
Pacote de Seven Boys

Nem Pablo Escobar, nem Pablo Neruda

Já faz tempo que São Paulo borda a morte na minha nuca
A pauta dessa mesa coroné manda anotar
Esse ano tem massacre pior que de Carajá
Ponto 40 rasga aço de arrombar
Só não mata mais que a frieza do teu olhar
Feito rosa de sal topázio, és minha flecha de cravo
Um coração que cai rasgado nas duna do Ceará
Albert Camus, Dalai Lama
A nós ração humana, Spock, pinça vulcana
Clarice já disse, o verbo é falha e a discrepância
É que o diamante de Miami vem com sangue de Ruanda
Poder economicon, cocaine no helicopteron
Salário de um professor: microscópicon
Papiro de papel próprio, letra com sangue no olho de Hórus
É que a industria da desgraça pro governo é um bom negócio
Vende mais remédio, vende mais consórcio
Vende até a mãe, dependendo do negócio
Montesquieu padece, lotearam a sua fé
Rap não é um prato onde cê estica o que cê quer
É a caspa do capeta, é o medo que alimenta a besta
Se três poder virar balcão, governo vira biqueira
Olhe, essa é a máquina de matar pobre

No Brasil, quem tem opinião, morre

Greg Ridley - Anthology - All I Ever Needed (Re-Post)

 Greg Ridley - Anthology - All I Ever Needed - 2005

"Então Steve Marriott disse: 'A propósito, já tenho um baixista que está a fim de me acompanhar nessa, é Greg Ridley, do Spooky Tooth.' Aquilo bastou para mim. Não que a simples  presença de Steve não bastasse, mas na época Greg era o baixista mais respeitado da Inglaterra'
Jerry Shirley

If hearing Steve Marriott's voice at the helm of Humble Pie was the  defining moment in my musical education - then next up, along with Frampton's guitar, was the big blonde guy who played bass, with the big booming voice and the rock star looks...or maybe he just seemed big at the time compared to the other three, who are all pretty small?                          
Then further investigation reveals that he is a top bass guitarist, the coolest bass player on the planet when he joined Humble Pie ! In fact an important part of the "supergroup" story around Humble Pie's beginnings.
"Steve rang me up early on New Year's morning" said drummer Jerry Shirley "and told me he was joining me and Peter in Peter's band." Somewhat tongue in cheek he added, "but what clinched it for me was that he was bringing Greg Ridley into the band - and he was THE bass player on the underground scene". Greg and Jerry would go on to quickly become the driving rhythm machine behind Marriott.                                                      
Greg Ridley could himslef put together a very decent "Best Of" from Humble Pie tracks....from Big George, to Sucking on the Sweet Vine, to Let Me Be Your Lovemaker, Drift Away, Send Me Your Loving, You're so Good to Me, Sweet Peace and Time and so on....and that's without his contribution to 
songs like Four Day Creep and Hallelujah I Love Her So.                 
It was brilliant seeing Greg again at the 2001 Steve Marriott Memorial Concert...stage centre, legs astride in his famous pose, still wearing those trademark leather trousers.          
A far cry from the early sixties in Carlisle, only a few miles from the Scottish border, as Dino from Dino and the Danubes.

In quick succession he led the Dakotas and the Ramrods, before teaming up with school friend Mick Harrison in the VIP's in 1964. In talking to Greg, this is a group he obviously remembers with great relish. In fact he was tickled pink when a fan on the recent Humble Pie German tour brought some VIP records to sign. Don't know if many people know, but Keith Emerson was also a member for a short time.  Anyway, the VIP's evolved to Art, with Luther Grosvenor and Mike Kellie, and then into Spooky Tooth with American Gary Wright.                      
After Humble Pie, Greg worked on a still unreleased duo album with Steve  Marriott, and joined the ill-fated All Stars on their short US tour. He tried out for Mike Patto's new band Boxer, and with Clempson/Powell in  Strange Brew before retiring from the music industry at the ripe old age of 30.

Greg Ridley re-entered the music scene in  1991 with the reunion of Pie members Jerry Shirley, Peter Frampton, and Dave Clempson at the Steve Marriott Memorial Concert in London.  Following that historic event, he and Shirley teamed with Humble Pie MkIII member Bobby Tench, Bucket Colwell, and Zoot Money in the studio for “Back on Track”.  and a limited tour of Europe.
