Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers- Even the Losers- San Francisco 2-6-97

Listen to the late great Tom Petty put the  Heartbreakers through their paces on an almost cinematic live arrangement of "Even the Losers", originally on Damn the Torpedoes,  here from February 1997 at the San Francisco Fillmore.- Redbeard…

R.E.M.- What's the Frequency Kenneth- Milton Keynes UK 7-95

"We were touring for the first time in five years. We wanted something arena and festival ready", says R.E.M. lead singer and lyricist Michael Stipe in Newsweek about the overall sound of the Fall 1994 release Monster.   The proof of the pudding…

Eric Clapton- Tell the Truth- Crossroads Guitar Fest Chicago 2007

This weekend Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival comes full circle back to Dallas Texas where the first one was held ( Cotton Bowl 2004 ). Just some of the players scheduled to appear: Billy Gibbons, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark…

Bad Company- Runnin' with the Pack- Dallas/Ft.Worth 7-10-13

Bad Company has the dubious distinction of being just about the only arena-filling Seventies band which never released a live album during its original incarnation. And even though the three surviving original members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs,…

Lindsey Buckingham- Never Going Back Again- Dallas '92

An In the Studio exclusive, Lindsey Buckingham performing "Never Going Back Again" !

Cheap Trick- Need Your Love- Passaic NJ 12/78

Cheap Trick actually delayed their studio follow-up to the brilliant 1978 third album Heaven Tonight , not because of a lack of strong songs  written, but because their fluke live in-Japan- only release At Budokan  virtually blew up over…

Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band- Factory- Cleveland 8-78

With the release of the album Darkness on the Edge of Town in 1978, Bruce Springsteen went from the Cinemascope sweep of Born to Run three years earlier to the Rock Generation's defacto Secretary of Labor.

Rolling Stones- Mixed Emotions- Toronto 9-3-89

When interviewing Keith Richards in early January 1989 ostensibly about his solo album Talk is Cheap,  I was repeatedly reminded by his delightful publicist Jane Rose not to ask about the 900 pound gorilla in the studio: the Rolling Stones,…

Neil Young and Crazy Horse live "Down By the River"

John Fogerty- Green River- Burbank 5-97

Creedence Clearwater Revival, led by John Fogerty, were very busy this month fifty years ago. Their third album Green River   had just been released, their first since the spectacular breakthrough of "Proud Mary" from Bayou Country , and…

Crowded House- Don't Dream It's Over/All I Have to Do is Dream- 2010

"Hey now, hey now...". What a great band. Formed from the stray strands of New Zealand's Split Enz, Crowded House had up to four lead singers and the brilliant songs of Neil Finn. Not even the almost criminally inept career direction of their…

Aerosmith- Love in an Elevator- Brussels 10-31-93

Revving you up for the Aerosmith Pump   thirtieth anniversary coming in a few weeks. Proof positive that on Halloween night 1993, there was not a band on the planet better than Aerosmith in concert. Exhibit A is this sizzling live version of…

Toad the Wet Sprocket- Fall Down- Dallas 5-19-94

Love these guys live, and as you can hear, Toad the Wet Sprocket can pull off their tight melodic sound straight off the floor without any tricks, as here with "Fall Down" from May 1994. -Redbeard [jwplayer config="Audio Player" file="http://its-live.s3.amazonaws.com/TOAD…

Great White- Rock Me- Anaheim CA 7-24-93

We received a nice note a few years back  from Bobby Black at an In the Studio  affiliate  who had dinner with Great White keyboard player/producer Michael Lardie. It seems that Lardie was reminiscing appreciatively about the positive impact…
