This episode I am featuring a very special Christmas edition of the podcast.   Unfortunately I was unable to find any solid recordings of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but I think what I have will be equally as festive.  This episode features music coming from Warren Haynes' 19th Annual X-Mas Jam in Asheville, North Carolina. 

The X-Mas Jam began on December 29th, 1989 as a way to bring together local musicians to play once a year for charity.  This tradition has continued ever since and this year's iteration once again brings great musicians together to benefit the Asheville chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

The jam may have started with local musicans but this year's lineup featured some big name bands including Jackson Browne, G. Love, Bruce Hornsby, Stockholm Syndrome, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Peter Frampton, and of course Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule.
In case you were hoping for some traditional Christmas songs this set will probably let you down, fortunately for you the Neil Diamond Christmas Album is available at amazon.com.  Instead, this concert features some very talented musicians and some wicked jams...feel free to enjoy it with a glass of eggnog though.

Song listing
1) G. Love & Friends - X-Mas Blues
2) Grace Potter - Watching You
3) Stockholm Syndrome - Couldn't Get It Right
4) Bruce Hornsby - Rainbow's Cadillac
5) Gov't Mule - Goin' Out West (with Bang A Gong)
6) Jackson Browne - Patriot
7) Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like I Do

Looking back on the past 14 episodes there is one general theme that comes to mind and that is Sausage Fest. The LMP has been severely lacking in female musicians, so far there has been half of Rodrigo y Gabriela and a few female guest performers here and there. That all changes with this episode where I will be featuring singer/songwriter Tristan Prettyman.

I often refer to Tristan's music as a female version of Jack Johnson. I'm not sure if this is due to the relaxing acoustic melodies that they both share or that Tristan also grew up as a competitive surfer. Regardless, they are two of my favorite musicians to listen to when I want to kick back and relax.

Tristan's live shows are primarily a solo affair, but this concert also features Jen Lowe on percussion which really helps fill out her songs. This concert was taped at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on February 05, 2006. Thanks goes out to Christopher Jones for recording it.

Song listing

1) Guest Check
2) Smoke
3) Love, Love, Love
4) Evaporated
5) Please

Some kind soul out there has put together a Dave Matthews Band Best of 2007 Compilation which I am highly recommending for all DMB fans to download. The compilation, titled "Little Things To Get You By", includes 7 CDs worth of music totally 85 tracks. These include some rare cover songs such as Melissa and Black Water, all the new songs from this tour, lots of old favorites, and a few rarities like #34 and Halloween.

If you have been listening to the Live Music Podcast for a while this is probably already apparent, but I try to mix up the musical styles quite a bit. Last episode featured the electronic sounds of Daft Punk and this time I am featuring the bluesy jam band Gov't Mule.

Known by some as the Mule, this band has been together since the mid nineties and has built up a very loyal fan base. Musically their songs aren't a great fit for most radio stations so they remain relatively unknown to the majority despite their immense amounts of talent.

The concert I am featuring was played at the Voodoo Lounge in Kansas City on November 1st of this year. I almost got tickets to this and after listening to the recording I really am kicking myself for not going. Fortunately for me the recording is absolutely flawless and props go out to the mystery taper who posted it on bt.etree.org.

Song listing

1) Bad Little Doggie
2) Mr. High and Mighty
3) The Angel Band
4) Gold Dust Woman
5) Where's My Mule
6) Same Thing

The music for this episode comes from this year's Vegoose festival held in Las Vegas. For the past 3 years the same crew that puts on Bonnaroo Festival has been throwing a Halloween music and arts festival of the same vein, minus the camping. I've never been to it personally but each year I try to download some of the sets that were fortunate enough to be taped (LMP Fact: the first episode featuring Dave Matthews and Tim Reyonlds was from Vegoose 2006!).

This year I was pleasantly surprised to find Daft Punk's Vegoose performance hosted on bt.etree.org. If you are a fan of electronic or house music you've probably heard of them, but recently they made a huge jump into the mainstream music scene when Kayne West sampled their track on his song "Stronger". The video for "Stronger" also features an homage to the band. For the past decade most if not all of Daft Punk's public performances and interviews have been held with them in robot suits which are similar to the ones piloting the spacecraft in Kayne's the video.

I was not aware of this until putting together this podcast, Daft Punk will be releasing a new live album titled Alive 2007 on December 4th, 2007. So if you enjoyed the Vegoose show I expect the live album to be very similar since it will contain the duo's performance in Paris from their Alive 2007 tour.

Song listing

1) Robot Rock
2) Oh Yeah
3) Harder Better Faster Stronger
4) Burnin’
5) Too Long
6) Da Funk
7) Daftendirekt
8) Superheroes
9) Human After All
10) Together
11) One More Time

U2 is one of those bands that really doesn't require much of an introduction, but I just have a couple things to say about my selection for Episode 12.  This concert took place during the beginning of U2's Joshua Tree tour which coincided with the release of probably their most legendary CD.

With the worldwide success of the CD and tour, U2 was catapulted from mere super band to mega band status and have only continued upward since.  This recording is easily one of the best sounding that I have heard and the set list covers many of their biggest hits during that period.  While there is nothing like seeing a U2 performance live, here is a recording that gives you the next best thing without having to stand in line for hours to get tickets.

Song listing
1) Where The Streets Have No Name
2) I Will Follow
3) Trip Through Your Wires
4) I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
5) In God's Country
6) Sunday Bloody Sunday
7) Bad
8) With Or Without You

Episode #11 of the Live Music Podcast brings another unique style of music somewhat like the last episode. In this episode I am featuring a band called Rodrigo y Gabriela made up of Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero.  This duo's musical style is something of a combination of mariachi and heavy metal, which might make them the only band on the planet to do so. All of their songs are strictly acoustic and instrumental, played on a pair of classical guitars. Amazingly they are able to play in such a way that you would swear that there is someone else playing percussion instruments with them. Regardless of how you describe their style I find Rodrigo y Gabriela's music very energetic and uplifting, the musical equivalent to a box of Red Bull.

The 10th Episode of the Live Music Podcast is here and with it comes a genre of music that has been missing from previous episodes. The genre I am talking about is Southern Rock and the band is the Black Crowes. The show that I will be playing comes from Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver, CO and was recorded September 9th, 2007. I've heard a few Crowes concerts from this year's tour but this one really jumped out at me. The sound quality, cool location, and the addition of North Mississippi Allstars frontman Luther Dickenson make this a very memorable recording. The only thing that could have made it better for me would be adding "Hard to Handle" to the set list, but it's pretty tough to complain with all the other great tracks.

Complementing the last podcast of DMB at the Gorge I am featuring the opening act from 2 of the 3 nights, Robert Randolph and the Family Band. The taper is the same as the DMB shows so you can expect a really great sounding recording and as a bonus a few members from DMB get on stage for the 09-02 set.

The ninth installment of the live music podcast brings in one of my favorite bands of all time, the Dave Matthews Band. For a live music lover this band truly caters to you. They have been touring yearly since the early 90s and always bring an A+ performance to each show. In Episode 8 I mentioned that this would be a special edition and the reason for that is that I am playing songs from 3 concerts instead of the usual. Since 2000 DMB has been playing a 3 night set at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington state.

The Gorge is truly one of the DMB holy sites (including Red Rocks) that die hard Dave fans will travel hundreds of miles to go watch them play. Dave and the boys always give the fans an extra special performance when they play there. Not only do the biggest fans attend this show but also some of the best tapers. I have heard enough great Mike Vernal recordings that I keep an eye out for his name in the set details. Once again he delivers a spot on recording almost equal to the officially release Live at the Gorge CD that was from their 2002 tour.
