Rare Earth - Ma - 1973

Check out this release and you will discover one of the best bands of the seventies. This rocking and soulful group from the Motown hitmaking stable had no equals at the time. Their turn on the classic "Smiling Faces Sometimes" is a treasure and the exceptionally long "Ma" (earlier recorded by The Temptations) is a tour de force.

"The name of the band tells all, ONCE, in the sense this band is existed only for this show, 1 show, 1 time... As you can see from the set list it is a covers' performance, some blues, some classics, some reggae, some rock, but this testify the ability of John Cipollina to adapt his great guitar style to every kind of music, showing us his versatility... This is unique, listening to it one more time before to upload this, I had a lot of fun, and I had the proof again of the immense talent of John playing his guitar... even if all of us know it..." - Fabio Nosotti
Enjoy one of the best gig with John Cipollina !!!

Tom Verlaine & Jimmy Rip - Bowery Ballroom - NYC - 1998-07-31

The soundtracks of Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip feature Verlaine on lead guitar, and Rip on rhythm guitar and atmospherics. What sets the duo’s soundtracks apart from many other modern silent film soundtracks is as follows. First, they understand that they are there to support the film, not vice versa. Despite what you would think (and what the title of the DVD suggests), Verlaine and Rip do not have a self-indulgent, “the artistes are here” attitude in their performances. The two understand the importance of underscoring the film and putting the film first. Second of all, they purposely create music that is beautiful and atmospheric, rather than ugly, trashy, and postmodern. In doing so, they make the films seem less “artsy” and “experimental”, and more like a series of beautiful dreams that you do not want to wake up from.

The Sheiks With John Cipollina - My Father's Place - Roslyn - NY - August 07 1977

Summer of 1977. I'd quit working as roadie/soundman/fill-in drummer for local NY band The Sheiks. I decided it was time to be in my own band. Anyway, we heard that the night club, My Father's Place, somehow got in touch with John Cipollina and convinced him to come to NY and play with a couple of local bands, especially the Shieks. He came in mid week and made it in time for the later part of the evening at another of the clubs they usually played called Arthurs in Massapequa, NY. It was great to see John playing with my old friends in a local bar. As we didn't see john in NY too often then, we had no idea that he normally played with everyone all the time back in S.F. They rehearsed the next night and afterwards the Sheiks took John to see local blues legend, Little Buster. I understand he did sit in but nothing was recorded. The next 2 nights, the Sheiks along with John, played at the most popular local club in the area, the Right Track Inn in Freeport, NY. After the 2nd night, I took John back to his hotel where we stayed up all night talking about the heyday of the bay area and listening to tapes he'd brought with him. About 5 am, a knock at the door surprised me. It was Link Wray, who was staying in the next room and who would be opening the following night's show at My Father's Place. As the Sheiks normally played sunday nights at the Right Track, my new band ended up taking their place meaning I could not attend the show at My Father's Place. I was able to get another friend of the Sheiks to record the show. Unfortunately, he either wasn't prepared or didn't know who Link Wray was so that set, which included John guesting from what I heard later, was not taped. So, here's the complete Sheiks and John show that's gone around for many years in an incomplete form and with some incorrect information. Another result of this meeting was Sheik's guitarist Don Gaynor's decision to leave and do a solo lp. He ended up moving to S.F. and eventually played in the Heart of Gold Band with the Grateful Dead's Keith and Donna Godchaux.
Enjoy !!! (Dave Tamarkin)
