Grateful Dead Announces Massive ‘July 1978: The Complete Recordings’ Box Set

first_imgThere’s no denying that 1978 was one of the peak years of Grateful Dead history. The band was in fine form, settling in with their newest band members, Keith and Donna Jean Godchaux, and had just released the Terrapin Station album in mid-1977. Perhaps then, it’s no surprise that Rhino Records has announced the release of July 1978: The Complete Recordings, a 12-CD set archiving five full Grateful Dead show from the magical year.The five shows featured are: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO (7/1/78), St. Paul Civic Center, St. Paul, MN (7/3/78), Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha, NE (7/5/78), and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO (7/7/78 and 7/8/78). With audio from the mastered soundboards, captured by the one and only Ms. Betty Cantor-Jackson, this release promises to be one of the finest in the Dead’s rich live archives.The Red Rocks shows mark the band’s first at the storied venue, and, to build anticipation, Rolling Stone has premiered the leading single from that July 8th show. Listen to “Wharf Rat,” below:Due out May 13th, this is a must-have for any Deadhead’s collection. Archivist David Lemieux certainly agrees with the sentiment. “To many ears, mine included, 1978 is considered one of the best years in Grateful Dead history, keeping the momentum going from the excellence of 1977 Dead,” he told Rolling Stone. “These five shows are from one of the best weeks of the one of the best years in the Grateful Dead’s 30 years performing career. From the opening ‘Bertha’ to the closing ‘Werewolves of London,’ this box features nearly 100 tracks of phenomenal, inspired playing, all of which is previously unreleased.”Pre-orders are ongoing for this limited edition item, but act quickly! Only 15,000 numbered copies will be issued. There will also be a 3-CD set for just the 7/8/78 Red Rocks as well.

Radiohead Proves That ‘True Love Waits’ During Night One At The Shrine Auditorium

first_imgRadiohead continued their brief U.S. tour last night, landing in Los Angeles for an excellent performance at The Shrine Auditorium. The first of two nights at the venue–night two happens next week, after the band headlines Outside Lands festival in San Francisco–the band wasted no time in getting down to business, filling their set with fan-favorites and bust-outs.Opening again with the first five tracks from their incredible new album A Moon Shaped Pool, the band quickly moved past the new stuff to play a set of classics. Songs like the sinister “The National Anthem”, the dance-heavy “Lotus Flower”, and the Beach Boys-esque “No Surprises” kicked things off, before the band decided to bust out the new, full version of “True Love Waits” for the first time on American soil.Watch Radiohead perform “True Love Waits” for the first time in America, courtesy of YouTube user nosaintinla.The song has been in Radiohead’s live catalog for years, but was only finally finished for this year’s AMSP album, so fans in Los Angeles were gifted with the first ever performance of the song’s final version in the United States.Radiohead completed their main set with a ton of fan-favorites, with the spacey “Bloom”, more AMSP material in “Identikit” and “The Numbers”, and a wild run of songs to closer things out, with glitch-jazz of “The Gloaming” leading into the beautiful “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi”, before more glitch-dance with “Idioteque”, and a set-closing freak-out with “Climbing Up The Walls”.The band returned for their first encore, and they opened by playing the rare OK Computer track “Let Down”. “Let Down” hadn’t been performed in ten years before Radiohead played during night 1 at Madison Square Garden last week, but have since performed the track four times now. When Radiohead decideds to bust a song out, they make sure all of their fans see it, so it looks like “Let Down” is here to stay for the rest of their time in North America. The rest of the first encore included the delicate In Rainbows ballad “Nude”, the raging “Myxomatosis”, and the percussive “There There” to close things out.For their second and final encore, Radiohead opened with live-staple “Everything In Its Right Place”, before finishing up with “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” from The Bends, giving the audience one more opportunity to sing along with one of the band’s most classic songs.See below for full setlist details and a few videos from the show.

The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson Shares First Single From The Magpie Salute

first_imgWhile there’s little love between brothers Rich and Chris Robinson, there’s no shortage of adulation for their former band The Black Crowes. So when Rich announced a new project last year, with former Black Crowes members guitarist/vocalist Marc Ford, keyboardist Eddie Harsch and bassist Sven Pipien, fans rejoiced. Only a few weeks after the band announced themselves as The Magpie Salute, Harsch passed away.Playing off the “crow” theme, the BC members recruited Rich Robinson Band members Joe Magistro and Matt Slocum, and backing vocalists Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen to complete the lineup.The band played four shows at The Gramercy Theatre in New York City in January 2017, but Robinson plans to take Magpie Salute for a proper U.S. tour. “We’re going to be changing set lists every night,” he tells Rolling Stone. “We’re learning about 100 songs to start with. There’ll be a lot of Crowes material, a lot of solo material, different covers, maybe new songs. It’s just something that’s going to keep growing and changing as we move along.” You can read the full interview about this exciting new band here.Check out their first studio recording below.

Smashing Pumpkin’s Billy Corgan Covers Miley Cyrus In Toronto

Corgan played Queen Elizabeth Theater in Toronto, ON on Friday night, performing one set of material from the new album and one career-spanning set of Smashing Pumpkins favorites, a Zwan throwback, and a couple of choice covers.Watch Billy Corgan Of Smashing Pumpkins Cover The Grateful Dead’s “Box Of Rain” In Brooklyn [Video]The tour has introduced Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, and more covers into the mix, and Friday night’s performance included an out of left field cover of Miley Cyrus. Corgan perfected Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” with his own signature nasal-y wail, taking creative liberties with melody and cadence, reinterpreting the 2013 Bangerz hit into an acoustic ballad worthy of listen.As Rolling Stone points out, Corgan expressed his admiration for Cyrus as a singer-songwriter on a French rock radio station (OUI FM) in 2014. “She’s a very good singer,” Corgan said in the interview. “So at least I can stand back and say qualitatively that she’s a better pop star than 99.99% of them, even if I don’t like the music.”Listen to Billy Corgan’s rendition of “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus in the fan-made video below, uploaded by Real Bad BBQ:Setlist: Billy Corgan | Queen Elizabeth Theatre | Toronto, ON | 10/20/17I: Zowie, Processional, The Spaniards, Aeronaut, The Long Goodbye, Half-Life of an Autodidact, Amarinthe, Antietam, Mandarynne, Shiloh, Archer, If I Were A Carpenter (Tim Hardin cover)II: Full Sail, Burnt Orange-Black*, Thirty-Three*, La Dolly Vita*, Now (And Then), Disarm*, To Sheila*, After the Gold Rush (Neil Young cover), Oceania*, Try, Try, Try*, Friends as Lovers, Lovers as Friends (Zwan song), Eye*, For God and Country*, 1979*E: Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus cover), Today*, Spaceboy*, Age of Innocence*, Farewell and Goodnight**Smashing Pumpkins coverWilliam Patrick Corgan: THE OGILALA TOUR Remaining Dates:October 24 – Chicago, IL @ Athenaeum TheaterOctober 25 – Chicago, IL @ Athenaeum TheaterOctober 27 – Nashville, TN @ CMA TheatreOctober 29 – Boulder, CO @ Boulder TheaterNovember 1 – San Francisco, CA @ Herbst TheaterNovember 2 – San Francisco, CA @ Herbst TheaterNovember 9 – Los Angeles, CA @ Masonic Lodge @ Hollywood Forever CemeteryNovember 10 – Los Angeles, CA @ Masonic Lodge @ Hollywood Forever CemeteryNovember 11 – Los Angeles, CA @ Masonic Lodge @ Hollywood Forever Cemeterylast_img read more
