January 18, 1956 – Looking At The Rose Through World Colored Glasses – John Foster Dulles.

For the week ending this day in 1956, all attention seemed to be on an interview, conducted by Life Magazine, with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. The gist of the interview was Dulles’ alarming tone with regard to the Indo-China (Vietnam) situation. Dulles proclaimed, in no uncertain terms, that...

Recorded at the 3rd Annual Art Park Jazz Festival in Lewiston New York, between September 1-3, 1979 and featuring the Lee Konitz Nonet. He performed successfully in a wide...

January 11, 1944 – FDR -The Second Bill Of Rights -A State Of The Union In Wartime –

Recovering from a bad case of the Flu, President Roosevelt delivered the 1944 State of The Union address from the Oval Office, rather than in a Joint Session of Congress. The war had been going on for 3 years and the tide was turning in the Allies favor. It was...

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...

Heart – In Concert From Passaic, New Jersey – 1979 – Past Daily Backstage Pass

Back to some basic, no-frills American Rock n’ Roll this weekend. In 1977, Mushroom Records ran a full-page advertisement showing the bare-shouldered Wilson sisters (as on the Dreamboat Annie album cover) with the suggestive caption, “It was only our first time!” In an interview that appeared in the July 28,...

Little Feat In Concert – The Santa Monica Civic – 1973- Past Daily Backstage Pass

Looking for samples of Iconic Americana this weekend, I ran across this concert by the legendary Little Feat, recorded by KMET-FM in Los Angeles on March 20, 1973. Having been a fan of this group since their early days, I always enjoyed their live gigs equally as much as their...

The Ramones – New Years Eve 1978 – Past Daily Soundbooth: Holiday Edition

Ending 2020 with a concert by The Ramones, recorded at The Old Waldorf in San Francisco, New Years Eve 1978. What better way to drown out an otherwise strange, perplexing and frustrating year than with The Ramones. High voltage, non-stop and relentless, it’s the perfect antidote to a year with...

Jethro Tull – Live In Stockholm – 1969 – Past Daily Backstage Pass

Something historic and elusive this weekend. As a longtime fan of Jethro Tull, I have always been particularly fond of the early period – the pre-Aqualung period of 1967-1969, but good sounding concerts which represented the band during that period have always been hard to come across. Jethro Tull, for...

December 21, 1939 – Christmas In Wartime – Festive In Short Supply – The Last Of Merry For The Duration.

Despite news earlier in the week of the sinking of the German Battleship Admiral Graf Spee, Germany was celebrating Christmas, this week in 1939, with a shipment of some 1 million Christmas trees into Berlin. War news, it seemed, wasn’t going to deter anybody from celebrating. The trees were plentiful...
