YES at The Ryman July 28 2014

I had the honor of seeing YES at The Ryman in Nashville last month. They performed 2 albums in their entirety: Close to the Edge and Fragile. They also played 2 songs from their new album Heaven & Earth plus “Owner of a Lonely Heart” and “Starship Trooper.”

Here’s the footage I filmed and uploaded to YouTube. It’s nearly 2 hours. I only missed “The Fish” and “Mood For a Day”.

Bruce Springsteen Nashville April 17, 2014. A new fan’s perspective.

I’ll admit, I was not born to love Bruce. My musical tastes lie in the realms of melodically-driven men like Lennon/McCartney, or the always surprising concoctions created by beloved progressive rock bands. Almost all of my favorite artists are Brits. I can’t even think of a US artist I consider an “all-time favorite”.   And here is Bruce Springsteen… champion of the working class hero, defender of the flag of freedom, sexy rocker that makes my wife’s pulse race.

I’ve bought the whole Bruce collection on vinyl — like I do — and have slowly developed an appreciation, one song at a time. The first song I totally dug was “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” then “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)” then the live versions of “It’s Hard to be Saint in the City” & Spirit in the Night” “then I found The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle

So, next thing I know I’m buying a cheap ticket and bringing my camera, doing the think I love to do.  So here’s the Bruce Springsteen collection I filmed from his Nashville show on April 17, 2014 at the Bridgestone Arena:

Hey Vinyl fans! I realize it’s been awhile since I posted…

… but I have been uploading some things to my YouTube channels:

THE DAILY VINYL and
THE DAILY VINYL LIVE!

for instance, I interviewed the drummer for the fabulous The Wood Brothers and we listened to their masterpiece “Atlas” from the recent live double-album. Check out the brief interview and enjoy the song:

 

But I guess most of my activity this year has been on the Live page. I finally completed editing and uploading the super-sexy & talented Kimbra from New Zealand (you may know her from the Grammy Award winning hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” with Gotye.)

Here’s the 1/2-hour I filmed from her Ypsilanti concert at Michigan State University:

 

For the Classic Rock lover (that’s ME!) I also filmed The Who in Nashville. I captured the whole show from the 5th row, but so far I’ve only uploaded the “Quadrophenia” section (over an hour & a half!):

 

Another fun show I caught this year was The Psychedelic Furs and Spacehog:

 

To see the list of all the concerts I’ve ever attended, check out Setlist.fm. I love that site. It’s so cool to track all the shows you’ve been to. If you setup an account and post a link, I will totally be thrilled & check it out!!

Ringo at the Ryman

I was honored to get to sit in the production truck while this was being filmed! At least for a couple songs. Saw Ringo sing “Boys” and “Yellow Submarine” from the multi-cam monitor. Totally awesome. And now HERE IT IS!

Are you going to buy this?

Also, in case you didn’t my earlier post, this just happened to be on my & his birthday! Earlier that day, (July 7, 2012). Ringo was at the Hard Rock in downtown Nashville to celebrate his birthday and do his annual “Peace & Love” wish for the world. I filmed the whole event and edited it down to this 4:32 video. It includes a spontaneous rendition of “Give Peace A Chance”. Also, I was holding up a sign that said “It’s My Birthday Too, YEAH!” He pointed to it and read the sign aloud… and wished ME a “Happy Birthday, Brother!”!

YEAH! I got wished a “happy birthday” by a Beatle!!

Paul McCartney Live in Nashville July 26, 2010

I have begun uploading the hour of video I filmed at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. This July 26th 2010 concert was the very first time Paul McCartney EVER performed in Nashville (as a Beatle, in Wings, solo — ever!), so it was quite funny when he said “Hello Nashville! It’s good to be back!”

He opened the show with “Venus and Mars” > “RockShow” > “Jet”. Although this version of RockShow is extrememly abridged, it was still the first time he performed it live since the 1976 “Wings Over America” tour. Pretty amazing.

The second (well, I guess technically it’s the fourth song) of the evening was The Beatles classic “All My Loving”

He then rocked it out with another song from the 1975 Wings album “Venus & Mars” — “Letting Go”

Back to the Beatles cannon — “Got To Get You Into My Life” from the 1966 album “Revolver.”

And now he’d like to do a song by his alter-ego… called The Firemen. The song is “Highway” from the album “Electric Arguments.” This tour is interesting because he is not actively promoting a new record. His last tour was to promote this album and “Memory Almost Full.” So for that reason, there were only 4 post-Wings songs played! Although, I enjoy seeing and hearing the new stuff, knowing that most of it will never be played live again, it was fun to get a healthier dose of classics this time around. (I also saw him in ’89 in Miami and ’93 in Orlando where he was promoting “Flowers In The Dirt” and “Off The Ground” respectively.)

New category added – Live Concert Videos!

I’ve added some live videos to my YouTube page, but have not posted them here, until now. The first ones I added were of the Aimee Mann show/Squeeze show on September 3, 2008.

Aimee Mann opened the evening with a wonderful performance (despite the fact the lady has no idea how to smile).

The video is very shaky because I was nervous about “being caught”. Later, the ushers said I was free to film, so the videos of Squeeze are awesome!

Here’s the final number of the evening: Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)

Be sure and check out the other Squeeze videos, if you’d like.

As a final note about this concert; This show will always be special to me as it was probably the last full concert a very dear friend of mine ever attended. Miss you sweet Melissa.

Becuase I think it’s only right that if I share a band’s music, I should provide a link to purchase it… here is some stuff I recommend. Here’s the AMAZING soundtrack to the 1999 film “Magnolia” featuring Aimee Mann’s best stuff! (and some Supertramp hits!)

and here’s a great SQUEEZE compilation that you can pre-order:

Enjoy the new LIVE CONCERT VIDEOS category. Up next—- PAUL MCCARTNEY!!!!
