Formed in 1969 by "six meta-music creators & one electronic engineer", this group created stunning cosmic music which was always entirely improvised. The ensemble regularly played throughout Japan and was best known for events such as playing all day at a beach in Kanagawa. In 1971, they made their first tour of Europe, meeting up with Don Cherry, among others. The following year, they returned, but with a twist. From Rotterdam, they drove an old Volkswaggon bus all the way to Pakistan, picking up santoor [a type of dulcimer instrument] on the way in Iran. Finding the border between Pakistan and India closed, they sold the bus and flew to India - finally travelling to the Taj Mahal. Upon 
their return to Japan, they played a benefit concert on July 15, 1972, to help pay for their return to the U.K. This concert was recorded and issued as the first of their two LPs. Though playing for television and radio many times, both in Japan and Europe, and playing many concert and festivals, their next record did not come until 1975. Recorded in August of 1974, this would prove to be the last official release by the group, which started to come apart later in 1975. After the group disbanded, almost all of the members stopped their involvement with music and disappeared. The notable exception was Takehisa Kosugi, who continues to be active to this day. Also, in recent years, the youngest member of the group, Seiji Nagai has returned from India and become active with electronic music again. In addition to these core members, the group was joined by occasional guests such as Hirokazu Sato and

This amazing stereo recording, taken from the soundboard master reel, showcases Taj Mahal in all his early 70's crossover blues glory. A lot of the material here is also available on the official Taj Mahal live recording from the same venue, recorded just a few months earlier, 1972's The Real Thing. 
My efforts to improve the sound quality of this recording, which is already superb, were minimal and include light tweaking of the frequency spectrum to eliminate some flatness and unbalanced frequency levels. I tried to focus on not altering the overall dynamic of the recording, which would eliminate the original feel of the music, while taking out some of the more subtle flaws. 
I included artwork that I put together from what I could find that would sort of fit with the recording since there seems to be nothing available to my knowledge! First I had to determine the titles of most tracks, which were somewhat mislabelled by the original seeder of the source recording, who I am forever grateful to for providing such a recording!! No worries!! I managed to find the proper titles for every song but the first one! The original tracklisting is kept the same as the source with one difference: I seperated track 1 into 2 tracks since it contained 2 songs, the unknown song and Gone Fishin'. 
I am aware that this show could fit on one disc if some of the dead air is taken out but I decided not to do this, in efforts to keep the recording as original and complete as possible, even if it contains some near silent periods. This is what happened at the show so it's included! 
If anyone knows the title of the first song with 100% confidence, let me know so I can fix the artwork!!

Bill Graham s Fillmore East Last Three Nights, featuring major artists; Albert King, J. Geils Band, Edgare Winter, Mountain, the Beach Boys, Allman Brothers Band, June 1971. The Fillmore East opened in Manhattan in March 1968. Over the next three years it hosted almost every major rock artist of the era, as well as giants of soul, blues, folk, gospel and jazz.

Geils Band, Edgar Winter, Mountain, the Allman Brothers Band) and folk (Country Joe McDonald a nod towards the venue s psychedelic roots). Presented here is the the entire WNEW-FM broadcast of these historic closing shows, together with background notes and images. 4CD Set.

This was more or less a question of trying to remove hiss and crackle. There is still a lot of crackle left. Had no idea how to remove it all. Sorry for that. Added some bottom that brought out some rumble that I tried to remove again. Volume has been leveled out throughout the recording. There is a tiny fadein/out in Wasted Years that I couldn't fix. Tried to fix a minor "tweed" in Rime of the ancient Mariner. Don't really think that I succeeded.

Lou was scheduled to do 3 "warm up" shows at the Knitting Factory in preparation for his world tour to support "Ecstasy". My friend Garry and I threw caution to the wind - we booked rooms at the Hotel Chelsea and flew over to see the 2nd and 3rd of the 3 shows. We were very pleased to find that the Knitting Factory only holds about 400 people, all standing. For the 01 April show, we were about 15 feet back from the stage, and on 02 April I was standing so close that I could practically have stretched out and touched Fernando's foot. The volume level was unbelievable, which didn't make it easy to get a good recording. I'd never seen Lou in such an intimate setting before, and it was better than I could have imagined (which at least made up for the outrageous cost of staying at the Chelsea Hotel!). The passion and power of his (and the band's) performance doesn't really come across on the recordings. I had been listening to an advance CDr copy of "Ecstasy" for a few weeks, so I was familiar with the new songs, but it was very different to see them performed right there in front of you. I certainly wasn't prepared for the "in your face" intensity of "Rock Minuet", and nothing could have prepared me for the full frontal assault of "The Blue Mask". 

As usual when he plays "at home", Lou seems very comfortable on his opening night - joking with the audience and easily handling the more unruly members (..."assholes from New Jersey"...). This set list features a pretty radial re-arrangement of "All Tomorrow's Parties". Lou obviously wasn't happy with it - it was dropped after this show.

It was 1975 when Zeppelin arguably attained the greatest height of popularity.  Physical Graffiti had been out for a month by the time they completed their  US tour with three sold out shows at the Forum in Los Angeles.  The new album reached number one on the chart, but also their entire catalogue up to that point also entered the charts again (Led Zeppelin IV at #83; Houses of the Holy at #92; Led Zeppelin II at #104; Led Zeppelin at #116; and Led Zeppelin III at #124), a feat never before accomplished in pop history.
It was also this time where they gained a certain amount of respect from the music press, something which they craved and didn’t always receive with long, glowing articles in Rolling Stone and New Musical Express.
By the time Zeppelin entered the final week of the tour, their health problems were less of a problem and they played some of their longest, darkest, strangest and most wired concerts of their entire career.  The marathons in the set, “No Quarter,” “Moby Dick” and “Dazed And Confused” all routinely reached a half hour.  Thankfully all of these shows have been recorded and are commonly available including Michael Millard, one of the most accomplished tapers in the seventies, capturing all of the LA area concerts. 
Deep Throat on Empress Valley is the second attempt to present a boxset of all three shows together.  Tarantura made the first set called Get Back To L.A. in the mid-nineties.  It is packaged in a gorgeous accordion still package and at the time was definitive.  But since better generations of these tapes have surfaced.

The Millard tape for the first Los Angeles show is nearly excellent but slightly hissy and lacking in depth compared ot the other tapes.  Millard tape used on Crazed And Bemused (Black Cat Records BC-22), Get Back To LA (Tarantura T9CD-1-7) and The Firecrackers Show (The Diagrams Of Led Zeppelin TDOLZ003/004/005).  Dazed And Confused (Mad Dog MDR-LZ001~2) contains “Stairway To Heaven,” ” Whole Lotta Love,” “Black Dog” and “Heartbreaker” from this tape as does A Gram Is A Gram Is A Gram (Image Quality IQ-80/081/082).  An alternate tape is used for the introduction and the first minute of “Rock And Roll,” for thirt seconds after “The Rain Song,” 6:47 to 7:47 in “Trampled Underfoot,” and for a  minute after “Dazed And Confused.”
The show begins with J.J. Jackson making the introduction before “Rock And Roll” and after “Sick Again,” Plant tells the audience that “we’ve been in California a little while, but let me tell you, this is the place….these are the last three gigs on our American tour and so we intend them to be somewhat of a very high point for us and that can’t be really achieved, obviously we really don’t achieve that without a little bit of vibe, which I can already feel, and a few smiles.”
Plant continues to sprinkle the show with his humorous comments like before “In My Time Of Dying” telling the audience that there are “a few developments in the camp and a few camps in the development. Bonzo decided not to have the sex change after-all, and ah, we got a new album out.”  The first real high point occurs during the “No Quarter” marathon, the first one in the set.  The grand piano and electric guitar improvisation had reached a hight by this time and these versions are among the best executed and recorded.
“Dazed And Confused” is “probably about the first thing that we had a go at, apart from the secretary.”  It’s obvious Page is trying hard to expand the improvisation as the piece stretches past a half hour, but there are several rough spots and it comes off as rather sloppy, the worst of the three Forum shows.   “Stairway To Heaven,” which is “for all our English friends who’ve arrived at the continental Riot House…. and this is for you people here who’ve made this a good gig.”  The encores are the longest of the three with a full version of “The Crunge” before they play “Black Dog,” and this is the only one to have the rare second encore “Heartbreaker.”
