Eagle Rock Entertainment has also included as bonuses for Kravitz’s fans live takes of ‘Sister,’ ‘Always on the Run,’ ‘Sex,’ ‘I Belong To You,’ ‘New York City,’ and ‘Let Love Rule.’ In discussing the upcoming recording, Kravitz noted that it gives fans a good look at his relationship with his band mates and the effect of touring on their lives both as individuals and as a traveling family of sorts. “I am a solo artist but Just Let Go reflects on the relationship with my band and the camaraderie that develops between us while out on the road,” he said. “The film takes a deeper look into what it’s like to be on tour and also gives an intimate perspective into my life with my band, both on and off the stage.”

From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 Is One Of 2015’s Marquee Live Recordings

Courtesy:  Eagle Rock Entertainment

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

This past June, Eagle Rock Entertainment continued its “From The Vault” series with the first of two more archived Rolling Stones concerts with it released From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971. The classic recording is yet another impressive release in the ongoing series of concert recordings. And there are a number of reasons that this recent release proves itself such an impressive new archived recording not the least of which being its multiple formats. It is available on a number of platforms including: DVD, SD Blu-ray, DVD + CD combo pack, SD Blu-ray + CD combo pack, and even DVD + LP combo pack. Having so many options in terms of its platforms, audiences will all be on the same level regardless of which option they choose. The set list chosen for this recording is just as important to its success as its availability on multiple platforms. And last but hardly least worth mentioning is the recording’s companion booklet. Richard Havers’ liner notes and the additional notes included in the booklet add an additional insight into the recording that makes for even more enjoyment for audiences. All three elements taken together make From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 yet another impressive addition to Eagle Rock’s Rolling Stones “From The Vault” series. They also make it one more of this year’s top new live Blu-rays, DVDs, and CDs.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s new addition to its Rolling Stones “From The Vault” series is yet another impressive addition to that series. It is also one of the year’s best new live Blu-rays, DVDs, and CDs. That it fits into not one or two but three categories is the central reason that it is such an impressive release. Eagle Rock has paid tribute both to the band and its legions of fans around the world in having made it available in so many platforms. Those platforms include: DVD, SD Blu-ray, DVD + CD combo pack, SD Blu-ray + CD combo pack, and even DVD + LP combo pack. What this means is that fans will all be largely on the same level regardless of which platform they choose to take in the concert. That is because each platform presents the concert in exactly the same order with all of the same songs. Nothing has been added or removed from any of the concert’s varied presentations. It is hardly the first time that Eagle Rock has done this for fans. And it more than likely won’t be the last. The DVD and SD Blu-ray platforms both feature video that when played back in any standard Blu-ray player will look the same. That is because the SD Blu-ray footage has already been upscaled. Any DVD played back on a Blu-ray player will be upscaled when played back on said device. The audio is the same on both presentations, too as is the set list, which is the next reason that that this recording proves to be yet another impressive addition to Eagle Rock’s “From The Vault” series of releases.

The various platforms in which The Rolling Stones’ latest “From The Vault” recording are collectively one very important aspect of its success and enjoyment. They put the band’s legions of fans around the world largely on the same level regardless of which platform they choose to purchase. It is just one aspect of the set that fans and audiences alike will appreciate. The show’s set list is another reason the audiences will appreciate and enjoy this recording. The primary set list only totals eight songs. That totals a little more than thirty-six minutes. However, thanks to the people at Eagle Rock Entertainment, they are complemented with two extra pairs of bonus tracks, one being a pair of alternate takes of ‘I Got The Blues’ and the other a pair of alternate takes of ‘B****.’ That is a total of four additional songs, which push the show’s total run time to fifty-four minutes. It is fifty-four minutes that audiences won’t even realize has passed by the time the whole thing ends. It includes songs that were at the time the band’s older material–including the Stones standard (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’–and more recent material such as ‘Let It Rock’ from the then most recent Stones’ 1969 record Let It Bleed. It also includes four songs from what was then the band’s next album Sticky Fingers in the form of ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Dead Flowers, ‘I Got The Blues,’ and ‘B****.’ Of those four songs, only three were originally planned for the set presented here. The fourth, ‘I Got The Blues’ was a last-minute addition. As audiences will learn in reading through the show’s booklet, it was added to the show’s set list that night. In hearing it in all three of its takes, fans will agree that it was a good thing that it was added to the show. That is because it stands out so starkly from the rest of the set’s songs stylistically speaking. As Havers notes in the recording’s liner notes, it is reminiscent of Otis Redding. As audiences will note, it really forces Jagger to push himself in regards to his vocal range. It is definitely an interesting change of pace for the band both in terms of this concert and in terms of the band’s overall body of work at the time. It is just one more way in which this recording’s set list shows itself to be so important to the whole of the recording. It is not the last way in which the recording shows itself to be so impressive either. As previously noted, the companion booklet that comes with the recording in each of its platforms includes in-depth liner notes by Richard Havers as well as other intriguing notes. That combination of notes plays directly into the set list and the recording in whole, proving once and for all why From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 is one more must have for any Rolling Stones fan and fanatic and why it is one of the best of this year’s new live recordings overall.

The availability of The Rolling Stones’ new recording on a variety of platforms does plenty to make it another impressive addition to Eagle Rock Entertainment’s ongoing series of archived Rolling Stones concert recordings. The set list that makes up the body of the concert is just as important to its success and enjoyment. That is because it features a group of songs that at the time exhibited a rather large swath of the band’s catalogue including one song that almost didn’t make it into the concert. While both elements prove to be equally important to the overall success and enjoyment of this new Rolling Stones recording, there is still one more element to examine in its presentation. That final element is the concert’s companion booklet. Writer Richard Havers includes some in-depth liner notes in the booklet, which are themselves complemented by some equally in-depth additional smaller notes. Havers’ notes include a mention of ‘I Got The Blues’ almost not making the concert’s set list and of the band’s decision to include a cover of Chuck Berry’s ‘Let It Rock.’ The latter was added because, again as Havers notes, the band had quite the affinity for the famed guitarist’s body of work. It is well-documented that much of The Rolling Stones’ music was influenced by the blues. But this additional note regarding the band’s respect for Berry’s style of rock and roll is an interesting tidbit for fans who perhaps might not have known about it. In the same breath, Havers also makes mention of the band’s first performance of ‘Midnight Rambler’ at Hyde Park in 1969. Ironically enough, Eagle Rock just released that recording last month. Or rather, it released the presentation that ended up being recorded and presented for broadcast. The mention is made because the band also included ‘Midnight Rambler’ in its performance at The Marquee Club, too. It’s just one more example of how Havers’ liner notes add more interest and enjoyment to From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971.

In regards to the additional material included by the people at Eagle Rock, fans learn that the concert itself was a rather intimate performance with only 150 – 200 guests invited to the show. Among the guests in attendance, according to those additional notes, were none other than Eric Clapton and Jimmy page. What’s more fans also learn via the companion booklet that the band used its own mobile recording equipment to capture the concert as well as its then upcoming album Sticky Fingers and later to record Exile on Main Street. That the band used its own recording equipment to capture the concert’s audio is actually a very telling statement. It might not have captured every little nuance of the band’s show, but it definitely did a relatively impressive job of capturing the energy of the band’s show so long ago. There is even more interest added thanks to the original news article printed at the time included in the booklet. Fans that read the article will catch that the band actually recorded not one but two takes of the show. They were recorded simultaneously. That is because the original twenty-eight minute set would air on British television. The longer, fifty-two minute concert would air across Europe. This echoes the presentation that would become Hyde Park 1969 and would also explain why audiences get two takes of ‘I Got The Blues’ and two of ‘B****.’ Or at least it would safe to assume that that would be the reason why those additional takes are included in the recording. All of this information alongside the notes provided by Richard Havers show in full detail just why the companion booklet that comes with From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 is just as important to the package in whole as the show’s set list and the varied platforms in which it is presented for audiences. Those varied presentations alongside the concert’s very set list and the in-depth information provided in its companion booklet show together once and for all why From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 is not just another impressive addition to Eagle Rock’s “From The Vault” series of recordings but one of this year’s best new live recordings overall.

The Rolling Stones From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 is one of this year’s best new live recordings overall as well as another impressive addition to Eagle Rock’s continued series of live Rolling Stones recordings. That is shown over and over again through the varied platforms in which it is presented, through its set list and even through the concert’s companion booklet. All three elements provide their own element of enjoyment to the whole of the concert. Collectively, they make this recording one that Rolling Stones fans of all ages should have in their own home music library. From The Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 is available now in stores and online. More information on this and other titles from Eagle Rock Entertainment is available online now at:

Hyde Park Live 1969 Is One Of Eagle Rock’s Most Intriguing Live Stones Shows

Courtesy:  Eagle Rock Entertainment

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s latest entry in its Rolling Stones From The Vault series is one of its most intriguing installments yet.  That is thanks in large part to its stylistic approach.  The overall presentation of this recording is more along the lines of a hybrid concert documentary than a pure concert presentation unlike its predecessors.  The concert’s set list is also of note in the concert’s interest.  The set list presented here is relatively short, boasting only a total of eight songs at a total run time of fifty-five minutes.  That’s relatively short in comparison to other Rolling Stones concerts and concerts from other bands and artists in general.  It could be a reflection of the band having lost one of its founding members only days prior to the show.  Regardless, it still stands as an important element of the show that makes it such an intriguing watch.  The production values of the concert are also of note.  The efforts of those charged with restoring the concert’s audio and video for its presentation here are to be commended.  On another level, audiences will note a distinctly different shooting style here than that typically expected in a concert recording.  It is a more guerilla style presentation.  Interestingly enough that very style of shooting gives the recording a feeling that makes it stand out even more.  And that is just scratching the surface of this recording.  The band’s stage presence is notably unlike what audiences are used to seeing from its members.  The recording’s companion booklet generates even more interest to the concert.  All things considered, From The Vault: Hyde Park 1969 proves in the end exactly why it is the most interesting of Eagle Rock’s live Rolling Stones recordings.  Audiences that recognize all of the noted elements will agree with this critic’s sentiment and in turn will note its importance to the whole of Eagle Rock’s From The Vault series thus making it that much more worth the watch.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s latest entry in its Rolling Stones From The Vault series is one of its most intriguing installments yet.  That is thanks in large part to its stylistic approach.  More simply put, it is not presented as a standard concert recording.  Rather it is more along the lines of a hybrid concert documentary feature.  That argument is made as audiences get more than just a concert here.  Rather, audiences get a concert as well as commentary from front man Mick Jagger at various points throughout the show.  The commentary in question hits on the economics of touring, his personal thoughts on having to soldier on without Brian Jones, and much more.  Some of the commentary is first-hand with Jagger on camera as he discusses the noted subjects while other pieces are edited together with footage of the band performing and of people taking in the concert in various ways.  Those various ways in which the audience takes in the concert includes singing, dancing, and even sailing (yes, sailing) sailboats near the stage as they take in the concert.  Given the use of such an approach is not exactly anything new in the world of concert recordings and tour documentaries.  But it is also not an overly common practice among directors tapped to head up the projects.  This includes even more recent recordings from much less experienced bands and performers.  To that extent, the fact that it is not so overly common of an approach makes it a rather important element worth noting in this recording.  It is not the only element worth noting, either.  The concert’s set list should be noted as another key element to the concert.

The set list that makes up the body of The Rolling Stones’ Hyde Park show is just as important to its interest as is the stylistic approach taken in the concert’s overall presentation.  The set list presented in this concert is relatively short in comparison both to other, previously released Rolling Stones concerts and those of other bands past and present. That is because the concert presented here is what audiences saw in the concert’s original television broadcast.  It is noted in the concert’s companion booklet that the set list, which actually consists of fourteen songs rather than eight, was altered quite a bit for television.  That would explain why six of the set’s songs are not included here and why the show is out of order from the actual set list, which is listed in the booklet.  Considering this Eagle Rock is not to be held responsible for what is and isn’t presented especially if those remaining six songs might not be available right now. One can only hope that with this knowledge, Eagle Rock will manage to get hold of said songs somewhere down the road and eventually assemble them together for the full concert as it was meant to be seen by the band’s legions of fans around the world. This aside even presenting the concert’s original TV broadcast, the set list makes for its own share of enjoyment. Audiences get to hear in this set list the band’s first-ever live performance of its hit song ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ and of ‘I’m Yours & I’m Hers.’ The band’s take on ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ here is quite different from what was laid down on its studio version. That version is considerably more upbeat versus this much slower take. Being slower takes nothing away from the song by any means. Rather it makes it just as interesting. Keeping that in mind it is a good thing that it was left in this presentation to say the least. It is just one more way in which the show’s set list proves to be so integral to the overall interest of Hyde Park Live 1969. The set list having been noted, it still is not the last reason that Hyde Park Live 1969 proves to be such an intriguing recording. The production values presented in the “broadcast” are also worth noting.

Both the approach taken by those at Granada TV for its broadcast of Hyde Park Live 1969 and the set list chosen by those same individuals do quite a bit to make this recording intriguing. For all of the interest that both elements generate together, they are hardly all that is worth noting. The production values exhibited in the recording are just as worth noting. The efforts of those charged with re-mastering the recording for its presentation here are to be applauded for their efforts. Considering the recording technology available at the time of the concert’s original recording both the audio and video have stood the test of time quite well. And those that brought it back to life made it look and sound just as good if not better. Thanks to their efforts a certain sense of nostalgia is established in watching the concert. On another level, the guerilla-style approach taken by the camera crew and associated editing makes the presentation even more interesting. It really catches the show’s energy especially when the camera operators start using the quick zoom in and out on some of the crowd shots later in the show. The shots of the crowd in its various activities throughout the concert do just as much to heighten the concert’s energy. These are just a couple of ways in which the work of the camera crew and editors make the production values even more important in the grand scheme of Hyde Park Live 1969. Together with the work of those that restored the concert for its presentation here, the production values in whole prove in the end to be just as important as any other element of the recording in making it such an interesting watch. The collective production values of the recording partnered with the show’s abbreviated set list and the overall approach to the concert make wholly clear why Hyde Park live 1969 is such an intriguing recording. Being such an intriguing presentation it becomes a piece that every Rolling Stones fan should see.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s newly released Rolling Stones concert From The Vault: Hyde Park 1969 is the most intriguing of the series’ recordings to be released so far. That is thanks to the stylistic approach taken by the people at Granada TV to the presentation in whole. The show’s abbreviated set list adds even more interest. It makes one wonder if the songs that were cut from the band’s concert are available for a full concert experience. The work of those that originally recorded the concert and of those that resurrected it for its presentation here make it even more worth the watch. All three elements come together to prove why From The Vault: Hyde Park 1969 is a piece that every Rolling Stones fan should see. That is not to ignore the band’s stage presence throughout the broadcast which is notably reserved and the concert’s companion booklet, which adds even more insight into the concert. It isn’t just some random booklet tossed in to be added. It gives an in-depth history of the concert and the significance of the concert presented here. The band’s somewhat reserved presence on stage is likely linked to the fact that the band had lost one of its own only days before the concert. Such a loss would have a tough impact on any performer, especially knowing that the show must go on. Whether for this factor, for the companion booklet or for any of the other noted elements, From The Vault: Hyde Park 1969 shows in the end to be quite the interesting watch regardless of audiences’ fandom. From The Vault: Hyde Park 1969 is available now in stores and online. More information on this and other titles from Eagle Rock Entertainment is available online now at:

Eagle Rock Entertainment To Release Taste’s Final Live Show This Fall

Courtesy:  Eagle Rock Entertainment

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

Eagle Rock Entertainment announced today that it will release a “delectable” new archived live concert recording from the famed rock band Taste this fall.

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release What’s Going On – Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 on Friday, September 18th. The concert recording, originally shot by Academy Award® winner Murray Lerner, was restored from its original 16mm film and even had its sound remixed for its upcoming presentation. It will be available on a number of platforms including: DVD, Blu-Ray, double-disc LP set for vinyl fans, and digital formats. The DVD wil retail for MSRP of $14.98, Blu-ray for $19.98, CD for $13.98, and double-disc vinyl LP set for $34.98.

The concert presented in What’s Going On – Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 presents the story of the famed Irish band, formed in 1966 by equally noted multi-talented musician and songwriter Rory Gallagher. The recording is especially important as it would be the last time that the band would perform together in its short time together. Before performing at the festival, Taste released only two full-length albums—its self-titled debut release in 1969 and its follow-up On The Boards (1970). Those albums are being included in a companion box set titled I’ll Remember, which will be released via Universal Music Group on August 28th. Both albums have been re-mastered and include their own bonus tracks. Also included in the box set will be previously unreleased live concert recordings from Stockholm’s Konserthuset, The BBC and Woburn Abbey Festival and demos of both the band’s previously released and un-released material.

The track listing for What’s Going On – Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 includes all of the songs featured in the concert’s original 1971 Polydor LP as well as bonus tracks for true hardcore fans of Taste. There will also be a trio of songs from the German TV series Beat Club. Those songs are: ‘If The Day Was Any Longer,’ ‘It’s Happened Before, It’ll Happen Again,’ and ‘Morning Sun.’ If that isn’t enough for fans, Eagle Rock Entertainment has also included music videos for the songs ‘I’ll Remember,’ ‘What’s Going On,’ and ‘Born on the Wrong Side of Time.’ Audiences can check out the band’s performance of ‘What’s Going On’ right now online via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOo_Zi1W2iE&feature=youtu.be.   It is just one of the performances included in the recording. Speaking of those performances, the complete track listing for the concert in each of its platforms is noted below.
