    Am about two thirds through Disc 1 of the Deluxe edition. Very impressed so far, and it's definitely very close in feel to the Jam sessions which can be found in the Layla 20th Anniversary Box. In fact one of the jams is pretty much the Allman Brothers band + clapton.

    Can anyone type up the tracklist for the Original Version of the Filmore East album, so I can listen to the album as it was originally released?

    Default Week 2



    Well, I can't say that I would agree or disagree with this one since I've never heard it, and I would bet that very few of you have either.

    The Homecoming Concert--Tim Hardin: Hardin died soon after this concert. But before he went, he showed up in Eugene, Oregon at the Community Center for the Performing Arts, where between bingo games he performed the songs contained on this fine album. What is the sound of one man collapsing? Why, this very document.

    I can't even remember the last time I heard anything by this guy, who died in 1980 at the age of 39. He had a couple of hits, including 'If I Were a Carpenter" and "Reason to Believe", the latter covered by Rod Stewart. Anyway, I find it surprising that this would be on a top 25 list.

    You?

    I am slightly embarrassed to say that I don't think that I've heard of the chap...

    I've heard of him. Not an artist who has ever caught my attention but a good singer-songwriter. I hope this list isn't full of entries like this - albums hardly anyone has heard of simply because the compiler thinks it 'cool' or clever to choose them.

    I must be in a minority then cos not only have I heard of him, I have 6 or 7 of his albums.. , I do have his first live album, (Tim Hardin 3) tho not the one under discussion, don't think I've ever heard it iether..

    If you can enjoy 60's singer / songwriter you should check this guy out, everybody knows at least 2 or 3 of Tim's songs, nobody listed the two most obvious, though any lover of ELP/Nice will recognise "Hang On to A Dream"

    Don't MoFi do the Allman bros CD? (sorry for backtracking...) I must have a look at that soon.

    Anyone here rate Lyle Lovett? 'Live in Texas' is a joyous concert, quite a show, my almost favourite live album. Stunning production too, just as good as Krauss & Union Station.

    Favourite is Frank Sinatra at The Sands, with the Count Basie band. Man, if I could have been at one concert in the last century...

    Just checked - I'm disappointed to say I was wrong , it's the Allman Bros 'Idlewild South' that MoFi do, and I haven't heard that one.

    Default Week 3

    I know that everyone was waiting on pins and needles and with bated breath, so here is the third exciting entry in this series.

    Behind The Iron Curtain--Nico:
    Nico didn’t record much. This German chanteuse wasn’t the most prolific artist and she was labeled pretty much a cult artist, even though she predated the Goth movement by over a decade and should have been anointed its Queen. Since she had a limited repertoire, her albums tend to have the same songs on them. Deciding which versions you like best is half the fun and really confusing.


    Well, this certainly doesn't tell you much about the content of the record, but here are the tracks on this record:

    1. "All Saints' Night" - 9:14
    2. "Procession" - 3:48
    3. "Secret Side" - 3:33 (Nico)
    4. "Das Lied vom einsamen Mädchen" - 6:08 (Robert Gilbert, Heyman)
    5. "Win a Few" - 8:55 (Nico)
    6. "König" - 4:27 (Nico)
    7. "Purple Lips" - 4:32 (Nico)
    8. "All Tomorrow's Parties" - 3:03 (Lou Reed)
    9. "Fearfully in Danger" - 6:49 (Nico)
    10. "The End" - 10:10 (The Doors)
    11. "My Funny Valentine" - 4:15 (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart)
    12. "Sixty/Forty" - 2:26 (Nico)
    13. "Tananore" - 4:06 (Nico)
    14. "Janitor of Lunacy" - 4:19 (Nico)
    15. "My Heart Is Empty" - 5:15 (Nico)
    16. "Femme Fatale" - 3:48 (Lou Reed

    One notable missing tune is Chelsea Girls, so here is the link to a You Tube video, albeit a strange one, with Nico performing the song in, of all places, the Chelsea Hotel.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ype6Hw_Hmjo

    Nico is an acquired taste, but I liked her quite a bit, especially her work with VU. She was a mess and died at 'about' 50 years of age, since the year of her birth has been widely disputed but thought to be 1938 while her death was in 1988.

    Comments?

    I can't think what a whole album especially of live Nico would be like.

    I don't mind the odd bit of her with the VU. She has a smooth, soporific type of voice - not in a bad way. Perhaps its the German lilt. Would have loved to have heard her doing some Krautrock!

    Bet she wouldn't win X-Factor though...

    I haven't heard any of Nico's solo albums for many years, what I do remember about them is that they were a very personal taste and not to mine..

    One of the 25 Best live albums of all time??? without even hearing this album, I'm gonna say I really don't think so.
