Steve Hackett – Live At Reading Festival 1981 – Past Daily Soundbooth

I think it’s safe to say, particularly if you’re a long-term Genesis fan, that when Peter Gabriel left the band it was paralyzing blow. But when Steve Hackett left the band it signaled a death-knell. The departure of these two key members from one of the most influential and popular...

The Kinks – In Session – 1965 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Heading in the direction of the weekend with a 1965 session from The Kinks. Another band that shaped the future of Rock in the 1960s with some of the most memorable and influential songs of the British Invasion period (and well into the 70s with the iconic Lola), The Kinks...

Le Orme – Live In Milan – 1974 – Past Daily Soundbooth: Rock Without Borders Classic Edition

The tape of this concert has been sitting in a box, on a shelf, in the vault for the better part of thirty years. I had assumed it was an advance copy of the album Le Orme In Concerto which came out in 1974, and both my tape and the...

The Smiths In Session 1984 -Past Daily Soundbooth: Session Edition

No particular theme to the Roundtable posts this week. Just running through the library, finding things I haven’t played in a while. I’ve always been a fan of The Smiths. Listening to them reminds me of reading a good book – you can read it several times and find new...

Dexys Midnight Runners – In Session – 1981 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Most people recall Dexys Midnight Runners as the band who gave us Come On Eileen, one of the big pop hits that defined the 1980s. But they were a lot more than a one hit band (they had another big hit, Geno, which was big in the UK and not...

Arthur H – In Session 2014 – Past Daily Soundbooth: Rock Without Borders/Session Edition

Further evidence that the Internet is one of the truly most astonishing innovations in recent memory is the amount of access one has to just about every corner and crevasse on the globe, and every musical taste that goes along with it. Case in point – tonight’s Soundbooth features a...

The Red Krayola – 1967 – Past Daily – Nights At The Round Table

Further evidence the heady days of 1967 were not the exclusive domain of L.A., San Francisco, New York or London. The Red Krayola, probably one of the most wildly influential yet strangely un-commercial bands to emerge from that period, came from Texas. In fact, they were in that classic mold...

Spencer Davis Group (w/Steve Winwood) Live In Stockholm 1967 – RIP: Spencer Davis (1939-2020)

Hearing the sad news this morning of the passing of Spencer Davis, I thought I would run this radio session from Sweden, recorded just prior to Steve Winwood leaving the band to form Traffic. I’m not sure if they ever toured the U.S., but it would have been memorable. Spencer...

Top Of The Pops – Cat Stevens, The Tremeloes, The Fortunes, Paul Jones, Dave Dee etc. – 1967 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Billed as “featuring live London performances of today’s top sounds”, the BBC launched Top Of The Pops in its radio version in 1964. No connection with the TV version of the show (oddly), the radio version featured bands, hit makers of the day, playing live versions of their hits and...

Ruby & The Romantics – Live on Soul! – NET/WNDT – January 16, 1969 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection Become a Patron! Another performance from the milestone series Soul! via NET (PBS before it was PBS). Tonight it’s a rare session from Ruby & The Romantics, broadcast on January 16,...
