Playlist for May 28, 2008

It has come to my attention that WHRW will be doing some much-needed technical work this coming week. That means WHRW will be off the air next Wednesday, which means I'll be pre-empted.

I'll be back the following Wednesday, June 11th, 2008.

Third World with Stevie Wonder - Jamaica Sunsplash 4, August 4, 1982
Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Taper's Notes:

A Tribute to Bob Marley. Excellent audience recording. 6:00 AM show.

This recording focuses on Stevie's contribution to Sunsplash 4. Recording starts off with fade in to a Third World song "...Get off of your backside and do something for the world", quickly moves into Masterblaster, Stevie's tribute to Bob. Next is Redemption Song (joining in is Rita Marley!). Stevie dedicates the next tune, Happy Birthday to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bob Marley. Next is Now That We've Found Love & Dancing on the Floor. The set ends with Always Around -> One Love. So, for the list types:

Track 1: Masterblaster
Track 2: Redemption Song
Track 3: Happy Birthday
Track 4: Now That We've Found Love
Track 5: Dancing On the Floor
Track 6: Always Around -> One Love.

I've never seen this posted anywhere else before, so hopefully someone will enjoy listening to this great early morning music!

This post is dedicated to my good friend Mr. Mags, who has been suggesting that I post this for some time now.

Enjoy! and share the good vibes.

Brian Eno- Music for Ara Pacis, 6 May 2008

Taper's Notes:

Nine years on from their first collaboration (`I Dormienti` in the undercrofts of the London Roundhouse), Brian (music) and Mimmo Paladino (installation, sculptures) have again joined forces for a collaborative project at Rome's Museo dell'Arra Pacis.
It ran from 11th March to 11th May.

Here is an audience recording, ipietri, a bright star in the Eno universe, sound wizzard and a good friend too has managed to visit the very installation and succesfully make a wonderful recording. Quality wise top notch!!!!

He asked me to upload this on his behalf and I feel honored (and happy to regain some of my reputation as some sort of `Eno pope` (or geek or whatsoever ;-)...). Since I didn`t take Eno's advice for slower and better thinking and made a remark at the `Nerve Net Forum` which lost me lots of sympathies there I want to repair some of the bad karma I have earned: People! Buy all of Eno`s records, he is a genius! Buy his books, dvds too and visit his installations, he is a great and gifted artist.

O.K.: here is, what ipietri wrote about the very recording (again thanks and all spots on him!!!!):

``as promised here's my recording inside the Ara Pacis in Rome
I made it yesterday afternoon with Core Sound Binaurals mic + Marantz PMD620 recorder
edited with Steinberg Wavelab and HarBal 2.3
no cuts in the recording, it's a 1 hour visit walking in the
installation... including some (rare) visitor chatting... rare and not
annoying, easily the reference recording from the installation :-))
I suggest you don't play it really works as a background...
it's playing now in my office and nobody is protesting :-)))``

01 - To Whom it May Concern
02 - Emergency
03 - Unknown Title
04 - A Famous Blues
05 - Something Spiritual

**** taper's notes ****
songs 1 & 2 are from the tape that was broadcast
songs 3,4,5 are off the unedited radio station master reel

A 5 song radio broadcast from late
November 1969.

in the USA " Emergency " was released as 2 separate LP's and it appears
Polydor to stimulate interest in the 2nd LP release gave a tape with
a couple of live tracks to a New York radio station ("Emergency" and
a new song the as yet unrecorded "To Whom it May Concern")
The radio station must have asked for more so they could play a
longer live broadcast and Polydor recorded Lifetime in the studio
and gave them this tape.

Whether all 5 songs are from the same session or 2 sessions or
a mix of live and studio will only be answered when someone writing
a Tony Williams discography has access to the Polydor recording
session files.
