The title of The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert is a nod to the fact that the famous bootleg known as The “Royal Albert Hall” Concert was actually recorded at the Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 17, 1966. The historical record was corrected when the concert was released as the second installment in Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series in 1998 (it’s labeled the fourth volume, but the first three editions were all rounded up in a 1991 box)Read More

As Keith Richards tells it, the Rolling Stones’ first-ever all-blues album is the result of the band learning how to play in the unfamiliar surroundings of Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studios. To ease into the new place, the Stones decided to knock out a version of Little Walter’s “Blue and Lonesome” and it sounded good enough that the band decided to cut a few more covers, winding up with a full album of Chicago blues in a few days.Read More

Little Dots contains more recordings of the under-documented Petit Wazoo Ensemble, which toured at the end of 1972 (previously heard officially on Imaginary Diseases). Again, the sound isn’t pristine here, but it’s quite listenable. The show starts with a very early version of “Cosmik Debris,” but other than that and “Rollo” the material is all new (mostly due to being largely improvised). “Little Dots, Pt. 1” is a previously unreleased piece that features bassist Dave Parlato and drummer Jim Gordon in dialogue, joined by FZ on guitar about halfway though.Read More

On their second album, Uriah Heep jettisons the experiments that weighed down Very ‘Eavy Very ‘Umble and works toward perfecting their blend of heavy metal power and prog rock complexity. Salisbury tips the band’s style in the prog direction, containing one side of songs and one side dominated by a lengthy and ornate epic-length composition.Read More

Combining theatrics and an outrageously flamboyant stage persona with his fine natural-born talent (he possessed one of the greatest voices in all of music and penned some of pop’s most enduring and instantly recognizable compositions), one of rock’s greatest all-time entertainers/showmen was unquestionably Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury. Born Farrokh Bulsara on September 5, 1946, in Zanzibar to Persian parents (his father worked as a high court cashier for the British government), young Farrokh was nicknamed Freddie by fellow classmates while attending an English boarding school, and adopted the moniker.
