  • World Beat Sound System: Live at Soundstage

    Bill Laswell

    Year: 2006

    Runtime: 55 min

    Throughout three decades, Bill Laswell has been a constant innovator, fusing seemingly disparate genres into a whole new sound. Touching upon everything from worldbeat, funk, rock, hip-hop and jazz, there are no limits to his experimental approach. No matter what the project, one thing remains a constant – Laswell’s pretty basslines provide a rhythm to which all sounds connect beautifully. The Grammy winner is one of the most prolific artists in modern music, fronting his own band Material and serving as producer, label owner and performer on other’s albums. He has worked with many respected artists, including Herbie Hancock, Mick Jagger, Peter Gabriel, Yoko Ono and Laurie Anderson.

    Among his many talents is his ability to bring together well-matched singers and players to create a distinct style that defies easy classification. His Soundstage episode embodies his unique approach, transcending any genre boundaries and delivering an engaging performance. From the World Beat of Tabla Beat Science, to the jazzy flavors of Pharoah Sanders backed by Material, it’s an exciting mix. Other surprises include a rocking Buckethead set that includes a little breakdancing and songs by Praxis. The show culminates with an all-star performance, funked up by Bootsy Collins.

    Buddy Miles

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 1 hr 18 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    There are reminders of his status here, although he’s playing mostly cover tunes, along with a rock guitarist and bassist, in a club in Paris in 2003, with a big jukebox as his backdrop. Not the most glamorous setting for a guy who performed with Hendrix, Electric Flag, Carlos Santana, and many others.

    In this concert, filmed at Switzerland's New Morning Rock Heroes Festival in 1995, Buddy Miles re-works in his own distinctive style a selection of rock and pop classics from the '60s and '70s, concluding with a barnstorming version of three of Jimi Hendrix's biggest hits, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child and Hey Joe.

    Gene Vincent And Eddie Cochran

    Year:

    Runtime: 1 hr 1 min

    "Vincent Eugene Craddock, known as Gene Vincent, was an American musician who pioneered the styles of rock and roll and rockabilly. His 1956 top ten hit with his Blue Caps, ""Be-Bop-A-Lula"", featured here, is considered a significant early example of rockabilly. He is a member of the Rock and Roll and Rockabilly Halls of Fame.

    In 1956 he wrote ""Be-Bop-A-Lula"", No. 102 on Rolling Stone magazine's ""500 Greatest Rock and Roll Songs of All Time"" list. ""Be-Bop-A-Lula"" was not on Vincent's first album and was picked by Capitol producer Ken Nelson as the B side of his first single. By the time Capitol released the single, ""Be-Bop-A-Lula"" had already gained attention from the public and radio DJs. The song was picked up and played by other U.S. radio stations (obscuring the original ""A-side"" song), and became a hit and launched Vincent as a rock 'n' roll star.

    Ray Edward 'Eddie' Cochran was an American rock and roll pioneer who, in his brief career, had a small but lasting influence on rock music through his guitar playing. Cochran's rockabilly songs, such as ""C'mon Everybody"", ""Somethin' Else"", and ""Summertime Blues"", captured teenage frustration and desire in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He experimented with multitrack recording and overdubbing even on his earliest singles, and was also able to play piano, bass and drums.
    Cochran was born in Minnesota and moved with his family to California in the early 1950s. He was involved with music from an early age, playing in the school band and teaching himself to play blues guitar. His first success came when he performed the song ""Twenty Flight Rock"" in the movie The Girl Can't Help It, starring Jayne Mansfield. Soon afterward, Liberty Records signed him to a recording contract.
    Cochran died aged 21 after a road accident in the town of Chippenham, Wiltshire, during his British tour in April 1960. Though his best-known songs were released during his lifetime, more of his songs were released posthumously. In 1987, Cochran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs have been much covered by bands such as The Who, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Dick Dale & his Del-Tones, Blue Cheer, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Humble Pie, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Teenage Head, Tiger Army, UFO, The White Stripes, Stray Cats, and the Sex Pistols."

    Captured here for the first time ever is the Jeff Healey Band's 1999 performance at Montreux. Featuring 10 songs from their set, the band (Healey, Joe Rockman on bass, Pat Rush guitar, and Tom Stephen on drums) whips the crowd into a frenzy with a high energy, minute blues jam. Included in this set are the show opening "My Little Girl", their cover The Doors "Roadhouse Blues" (featured in the movie "Roadhouse") and perhaps their well known song, "Angel Eyes", which was a Top 10 smash in the US in 1988. As a bonus, fans are treated to 4 tracks from their 1997 Montreux appearance at Stravinski Hall.

  • The Black Parade Is Dead!

    My Chemical Romance

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 2 hr 16 min

    Leave it to My Chemical Romance to call their second full live album — and their second live release during The Black Parade era — The Black Parade Is Dead! Unlike 2007's mini-album Live and Rare, which patched together performances from MCR's fall 2006/winter 2007 dates in the U.K. and Europe, The Black Parade Is Dead! is a lavish CD/DVD affair chronicling two performances: the CD captures the band's October 7, 2007, Mexico City date — their last as the Black Parade — while the DVD features video of that show as well as their October 24, 2007, date at Maxwell's in their home state of New Jersey. The Black Parade Is Dead!'s grandiosity is only fitting, considering how elaborate The Black Parade was, and also fittingly, the Mexico City show is a song-for-song performance of that album — the only difference is "The Black Parade Is Dead," where Gerard Way announces to the audience that this is "the last performance of The Black Parade forever!"

    By 1961 Ray Charles had established himself at the forefront of popular music. He had several R&B hit singles on Atlantic Records in the fifties and crossed over into the mainstream with his hit “What’d I Say” in 1959. He then moved from Atlantic Records to ABC and had further success throughout the sixties.

  • Classic Album: Elvis Presley

    Elvis Presley

    Year: 2003

    Runtime: 50 min

    "It was like the world went from black & white to Technicolor," says Keith Richards of the emergence of Elvis Presley in the mid-'50s, and this look at the King's first official album (the legendary Sun Sessions weren't issued in album form until well after the fact) backs up that claim. The one-hour program (plus 40 minutes of bonus interview material on the program) combines performance footage (the early TV shows are not to be missed), photos, and more to limn Presley's early days, when he combined country, blues, and R&B to forge a unique, galvanizing style. Sun producer Sam Phillips, author Peter Guralnick, Presley's musicians, and others are on hand to provide insight and background. But in the end, of course, it comes down to the music--and when you're talking about the likes of "Blue Suede Shoes," "Tutti Frutti," "Money Honey," and "Heartbreak Hotel" (a single that actually wasn't on the album), "classic" hardly begins to cover it.

  • Live at Montreux 1975-1993

    Etta James

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 4 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    Etta James, who passed away in 2012, was such a magnetic singer and presence that she was a semi-regular at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, which is pretty selective about its bills. After her crack band opens with a couple, including “Hold On, I’m Coming,” James kills on “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “I Just Wanna Make Love to You,” and several more. “Come to Mama,” indeed!

    Etta James made many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival across her long and distinguished career from her first concert in 1975 through to her last in 2008. This film focuses on the concert from 1993 when she was at her absolute peak and complements it with selected tracks from many other Montreux appearances. It features many of her best loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with. Etta James was one of the most respected performers of her generation. In a career stretching over 60 years she was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame, won 3 Grammys and received many more nominations and was named Female Blues Artist Of The Year on no less than 14 occasions. Sadly, Etta James passed away after a long illness in January 2012 and this film is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century.

  • Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm Live in Concert : North Sea Jazz Festival

    Ike Turner

    Year: 2002

    Runtime: 1 hr 10 min

    In this concert from 2002 the late R&B legend Ike Turner performed highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career.
    Ike Turner, the man widely credited as making the first-ever rock’n’roll record, died in December 2007, at the age of 76.

    One of the most important and influential figures in popular music, he played a key role in the development of rock ’n’ roll, soul and funk music from its early roots in Fifties R&B. Truly multi-talented, as a writer, music scout, arranger, performer and musician, Ike was responsible for a string of classic recordings and hits over the years.

    Recorded at Sun Records back in 1951, his ground-breaking R&B chart topper ‘Rocket 88’ is regarded as being the first rock‘n’roll record ever.

    Teaming up with future wife Tina in the late Fifties, the duo produced some of the most memorable soul and funk records of the Sixties and early Seventies, many of which crossed over into the pop mainstream. Ike’s immense music talent tended to be unfairly overlooked at times in favour of the media’s fascination with his often controversial personal life, such as his stormy relationship with Tina and his notorious abuse of cocaine over many years.

    Always a much-respected figure amongst hip-hop and R&B stars, his musical legacy has since been recognised by the rest of the music community. Ike had made a major comeback in recent years - touring the world and recording a string of acclaimed albums – in 2007 winning the Grammy Award for Comeback Album of The Year for his ‘Rising With The Blues’.

    Ike Turner’s outstanding musicianship is very evident from this concert performance filmed at the 2002 North Sea Jazz Festival which features highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career. The package includes blazing versions of the big hits ‘Nutbush City Limits’, ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Rocket 88’.

    The 30-minute documentary ‘The Early Years’ chronicles his early days as a music trailblazer in the Fifties, whilst the 18-minute film ‘Memphis Heroes Award’ honours his contributions to popular music.
