Comments About the "Shabazz--Live In Europe" Album (1975)

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

You guys probably know this already, but it is news to me: the songs "Shabazz" and "Tenth Pinn" were edited. .... They weren't edited by much (?2 or 3 minutes each?), so it's probably not a big deal. .... I found out by watching this:

Even so, if I could purchase this video I would. .... My search failed. .... If anyone knows where I can purchase this, please inform me. .... Thanx.

that can't be purchased anywhere as it's owned by the BBC from their show  Old Grey Whistle Test.  It was copied off a TV broadcast and put up on youtube.

Love the sound of that Professional Percussion NYC kit.

Man, that was some old school, serious, raw, fusion back then.
There something very refreshing about just lettin it fly.  Much
more refined these days.

I did find DVD's containing excerpts from that BBC show for sale--example:

http://www.amazon.com/Old-Grey-Whistle-Test-Vol/dp/B000CBG5Q0/ref=sr_1_6?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1372007827&sr=1-6&keywords=%22The+Old+Grey+Whistle+Test%22

But I couldn't find any DVD containing that performance by Boomer.

Hey D. ---- I agree with you 100%!!!!

Yeah, T but make no mistake.  I love the required
precision that the fusion of today has to offer as well.

Right Tconrad ,   those two volumes are best of's that have been released by that BBC Show.   You will notice that all the artists are rock artists and not fusion or jazz. To my knowledge, none of those have been commercially released.  Those best-of's are only one song or two but a lot of the actual shows featured each artist playing the whole 45 minutes or however long they were.

  I have a great show by RTF and also one by Gentle Giant (which they released themselves) from the OGWT.  my shabazz show copy I copied off that youtube release.

My favorite of the bands!  You can
see the edit, clearly, after the fill,
near 11 minutes.

BOTH Blake and Abercrombie were
real anchors for this configuration.

Technology has really changed since then---especially watching Milcho Leview working all those dials and switches while working the keys on his keyboards. .... I don't think the modern keyboardists need to do all that these days to get the same results (but I might be wrong). .... And does anyone do any of that electronic manipulation of the horn sounds anymore?

I hear, see and feel in these visceral performances a lot more than that which is played and produced via modern technology. IPhoning it in is such a drag.
