Photo Special: Yuma Sun live in Kopervik 1 Feb 2014

Hell Awaits

I did a write-up on Yuma Sun’s latest release a few weeks ago, I really loved the album and was eager to see them play the new material on stage. I did see them yesterday and they didn’t disappoint…at all!  It was a very tight set, a bit short (they were one of three bands this night) but superb.

The new songs works very well live and hopefully we will see them many times on the festival circuit this summer (and on stand-alone jobs for that matter). They have developed quite a stage show, a mix of a cabaret show and a prayer house meeting. Jaran Hereid looks more and more like an intense preacher!

Bob Dylan: 10 live versions of “Visions of Johanna” (Videos & audios)

bob dylan portsmouth 2000

Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it
And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin’ you to defy it
Lights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there’s nothing, really nothing to turn off
Just Louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind

Even though the original album version (Blonde On Blonde – 1966) is the definitive version, there are many great live versions floating around over @ youtube.

Here are 10.

Classic concert: Johnny Cash live at Manhattan Centre 1994


Today we have dug up a real gem! The man in black, Johnny Cash, in top form and in a recording with very fine sound and picture.

The show was recorded live at the Manhattan Center (now Hammerstein Ballroom), in New York City, on June 9th 1994.  It has a total running time of 46 minutes, and I would rate the quality at least a 9 out of 10. The concert was filmed for the TV-channel VH1 it is in black & white. It was taped right after his comeback with Rick Rubin. There are dozens of clips on YouTube from the show/tv program, but to really get the feeling of the concert,  it’s necessary to experience it all in one sitting (well, that’s my view).

Track listing is as follows:
Folsom Prison Blues
Sunday Morning Coming Down
Ring Of Fire
I Walk The Line (with a really cool intro)
The Beast In Me
Drive On
The Man Who Couldn’t Cry
Number 13
Tennessee Stud
Big River
Ghost Rider In The Sky
Orange Blossom Special
Let The Train Blow The Whistle
