Kawabata - Private Tapes Vol 1-5 [no label 5CD] "These
five discs are from an 8-CD set packaged as the Private
Tapes from Kawabata Makoto, the driving force behind the
legendary Acid Mothers Temple. CD6-8 are not included here.
These recordings have never been officially released. This
is a mixed bag of stuff from Kawabatas solo work and
in collaboration with various artists. There are some real
gems to be found here, though theyre often squished
between some pretty rough material. But if youre a
fan of Kawabata, Acid Mothers Temple, or Japanese psych
rock in general, this collection is a must have. Every track
is gloriously awash in Kawabatas characteristically
thick layers of distortion and psychedelic freak noise,
nicely complemented by the less than pristine recordings
that capture him. These are bootlegs in the greatest spirit
of bootlegs, circulated by the artist himself as works that
provide expanded insight into the curriculum of one of Japans
most prolific musicians." The above extract was taken
from the write up provided by the fan who offered this on
a bitorrent site. Thank you, unfortunately we forgot to
copy your name.
set was purchased by a fan and was numbered 3/30. It was
purchased from Kawabata himself when he played a solo show
at La Salla Rosa in Montreal,
Quebec in October of 2002. Ex SBD stereo
Presley - Cafe Europa Sessions [Tulsa 5CD] The GI Blues
sessions released in 1996 on Tulsa Records. In the movie,
Elvis plays GI Tulsa McLean. This is the complete sessions
from late April and May 1960, recorded immediately after
Elvis Is Back. The original set was 4CDs and only 500 sets
were made. CD5 is the best of the alternate takes and was
added in a later German edition. The original title of GI
Blues was to have been Café Europa. "We get
it all here: laughter, swearing, fooling around with the
band and a sore throat. Between some of the takes we can
here Elvis referring to his Army time (with terms like commanding
officer, forward observer) and he uses some German expressions
(like 'was?' translated as 'what?' if something goes wrong,
or 'achtung', translated as 'attention'). Not all of the
conversations between takes are put on this CD set."
Recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood. Ex SBD stereo.
Adams - 48 Hours [no label 1CD] Unreleased album recorded
in 48 hours, May 2001. The story: "Of course, as soon
as "Gold" was finished, Ryan went into full freak-out mode.
Inspired by a "mind-boggling" show by his friend Alanis
Morissette at Los Angeles's El Rey Theater in May 2001,
he immediately started writing again, called up producer
Ethan Johns, and was back in the studio that same week.
A full album was recorded and mixed in two days - which
is why this batch of songs was titled "48 Hours." The sound
he was going for was "a country-folk thing like 'John Wesley
Harding' or 'Workingman's Dead,' with some shitkicking Merle
Haggard stuff in there" - the glorious "Hallelujah" and
the irresistible, twangy "Chin Up, Cheer Up" certainly make
for a dramatic contrast with the "Suicide" songs Ryan's
touring musicians took on an alternate life as a garage
band called the Pinkhearts - he even flummoxed the crowd
at Austin's 2001 South By Southwest festival by turning
his much-touted showcase into a raucous Pinkhearts set.
Back in Nashville, with CDs by Sonic Youth, the Stooges,
and Nirvana propped up on the mixing board for divine guidance,
the band knocked out dozens of Replacements-style bash 'n'
pop songs over two separate sessions." Ex SBD stereo.
