Argent – Live At Paris Theatre, London – 1972 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Early 70s favorites tonight, Argent. Assembled by former Zombies founding member Rod Argent (hence, the name) in 1969 at the demise of his former band, they were an instant hit, almost from the starting gate. With a number of hits during their somewhat short tenure, Argent was a very successful...

Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – Live At The Boarding House 1971 – Past Daily Soundbooth

A concert by the venerable Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks, recorded live at The Boarding House in San Francisco on May 1971 by the late-great KMPX-FM. Always one to defy labels, Dan Hicks’ infectious mix of Western Swing, Good-timey, Country-Rock, Folk-Swing and genres as yet un-classified, has made for...

Groundhogs – In Session 1970 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Next to Blue Cheer, The Groundhogs may very well have been responsible for some hearing loss on my part in the late 60s/early 70s. One of the best bands to listen to under headphones, cranked up past the threshold of pain – they were a sonic feast and were the...

World Of Twist – Live At Hull University – 1991 – Past Daily Soundbooth

To say World Of Twist were a short-lived band would be not entirely true. They had their beginnings in Manchester in the late 70s, and their first incarnation got started in 1984. But it wasn’t until 1990 that they emerged as a band to be reckoned with. Breaking away from...

Lush 0

Lush – Live At Reading 1994 – Past Daily Backstage Pass

Lush – probably one of the most influential bands of the Shoegaze era, happily (and with much relief) reunited in 2016 and were gigging and going on tour. They hit Coachella in April, and their much anticipated concert tour was sold out in cities, not only throughout Europe, but also...

John Cale – In Session 1975 – Past Daily Soundbooth

John Cale in session tonight. One of the founding members of The Velvet Underground, with a stellar solo career after, Cale has been one of the more influential artists, spanning several decades. As a musician, his endeavors span a wide range of musical genres – pop, rock, Classical, Experimental and...

Devy Erlih Plays The Music Of Pierre-Max Dubois – 1957 – Past Daily Weekend Gramophone

I originally ran this post a few years via my old website, but many readers weren’t happy with the sound quality available at the time. So, as promised, I am running it again with new and improved sound and a new transfer. This is the World Premier performance of the...

Billy J. Kramer and The Dakotas 0

Billy J. Kramer And The Dakotas – 1964 NME Poll Winners Concert – Past Daily Soundbooth

Sadly, only two numbers from this overlooked group, who were one of the mainstays of the British Invasion of 1964, are available tonight. Billy J. Kramer And The Dakotas had several huge hits during this time. But like many bands from this era, the changes in society and music in...

The Searchers

The Searchers – In Session For Swedish Radio – 1964 – Past Daily Soundbooth

A session from The Searchers, one of the more popular of the British Invasion acts from the first wave in 1964. With a string of hits, The Searchers were frequently in the top 10 of most singles charts. They were the second group, after The Beatles, to secure a hit...

Gerry & The Pacemakers

Gerry & The Pacemakers – Live At The 1964 NME Poll Winners Concert – Nights At The Roundtable

If you like what we do and you want to help keep it going . . . .Become a Patron! I originally posted this in 2015 – much has changed since then, and Gerry is no more. I have to keep reminding myself the British Invasion (as it was known)...
