Sherman’s Studio’ “Concert” Is A Performance Of A Lifetime

Courtesy: PBS/Public Media Distribution

This year was another strong one for live recordings.  Between recordings released in bundles and those released either as standalone CDs or DVDs/BDs, the recordings that serve audiences who might have otherwise not been able to take in a live show, proved on both fronts to be largely solid offerings.  Given, there were some disappointments including Jane’s Addiction’s latest live recording Alive at Twenty-Five and the archived Les Paul tribute concert Live From Universal Studios Hollywood.  For the most part though, this year’s field of new live recordings — both on CD and DVD/BD — has proven to be quite impressive as has already been noted in the previous live recordings lists.  Keeping that in mind, it is only fair, having noted the best live CDs and best new live DVDs and Blu-rays to present one list of the year’s best new overall live recordings.

This year’s best overall live recordings pull from both audio and audio-visual fields, proving that recordings can be enjoyable in both arenas.  Topping this year’s list of best live overall recordings is PBS’ in studio “concert” from Richard Sherman, one half of the famed Sherman Brothers creative team, Songs of A Lifetime.  Slipknot’s new live recording Day of the Gusano is on this list, too thanks to the combined impact of its CD and Blu-ray presentation.  Of course while Alter Bridge, Jon Cleary and Experience Hendrix, LLC all released new recordings that were CD only, they deserve their own spot on the overall list.  Eagles of Death Metal’s new live recording Live at the Olympia Paris also deserves to be on that list along with The Rolling Stones’ new From The Vault offering Sticky Fingers Live at the Fonda Theatre 2015 — again because of the overall impact of its audio and audio/visual sides.  It’s just one more on that list.

As with every previous list, this entry offers this critic’s 10 best new titles in the category along with five additional honorable mention titles for a total of 15 titles.  Enough rambling.  Without any further ado, here for your consideration is Phil’s Picks 2017 Top 10 New Live Recordings.

PBS’ Richard Sherman Studio “Concert” Hits All The Right Notes For Phil’s Picks’ 2017 Top 10 New Live DVDs/BDs List

Courtesy: PBS/Public Media Distribution

Experiencing a live performance by one’s favorite acts is a special experience.  The sights and sounds — from the performance itself to the enjoyment and excitement experienced alongside other fans — come together to make the live experience something almost as magical as it is memorable.  Of course it’s not always that easy to have that experience because of work, family or maybe other items.  Enter the live DVD and Blu-ray.  These recordings are pivotal for audiences the world over because people don’t always get to see their favorite acts.  They also often prove to give audiences an experience that is at least slightly different from that offered in their CD counterparts.  Keeping that in mind, it is fully justifiable for critics to present lists of the year’s top new live DVDs and Blu-rays as well as live CDs.  That is exactly what this critic is doing here.

This year, as with so many years past, Eagle Rock Entertainment has proven to have the majority of the year’s top new live DVDs and Blu-rays, once again proving why it is the leader in live recordings.  Of course it is not the only label represented in this critic’s list this year.  Live recordings from The Winery Dogs, The Dead Daisies, and even famed songwriter Richard Sherman (one half of the famed Sherman Brothers creative team) are all on the list, too alongside new material from Between The Buried and Me and Michael Schenker.  Those noted recordings are all from other labels.  In other words, this year saw a healthy range of new live DVDs and Blu-rays.  With that in mind, here for your consideration is Phil’s Picks’ 2017 Top 10 New Live DVDs and Blu-rays.  As always, the list includes this critic’s Top 10 choices as well as five additional honorable mention titles, for a total of 15 titles.  Let’s go!

PHIL’S PICKS 2017 TOP 10 NEW LIVE DVDS/BDs

  1. Richard ShermanSongs of a Lifetime
  2. Tedeschi Trucks Band — Live From The Fox Oakland
  3. Slipknot — Day of the Gusano
  4. Mumford & Sons — Live From South Africa
  5. Between The Buried and Me — Coma Ecliptic
  6. Black Sabbath — The End
  7. Jeff Beck — Live at the Hollywood Bowl
  8. The Rolling Stones — Sticky Fingers Live at the Fonda Theatre 2015
  9. The Who — Tommy Live at the Royal Albert Hall
  10. The Winery Dogs — Dog YearsLive in Santiago and Beyond 2013 – 2016
  11. Eagles of Death Metal — I Love You All The Time — Live at the Olympia Paris
  12. Sting — Live at the Olympia Paris
  13. Spock’s Beard — Snow Live
  14. The Dead Daisies — Live & Louder
  15. Michael Schenker — Michael Schenker Fest Live Tokyo International Forum Hall

That’s all for this list and still not all for the live recordings.  Still to consider is the whole of the combo packs and the standalone recordings.  In other words, there is still a list of the year’s top new live recordings overall to consider.  Also still on the way are the year’s top new albums as well as a handful of DVD and Blu-ray lists.  As many as possible will be covered before the year lets out, so stay tuned for all of that.

Rare Hendrix Archived Live Recording Takes Top Honors On Phil’s Picks 2017 Top 10 Live CDs List

Courtesy: Dagger Records/Experience Hendrix, LLC

Experiencing live concert events is not an easy thing in this day and age.  Between the collective costs of attending (I.E. pricey tickets, gas, souvenirs, possible lodging, food & drink, etc.), perhaps the general lack of time to attend depending on circumstances, or maybe the very fact that audiences’ favorite acts didn’t include certain cities on their tours, there is a lot that plays into the inability to attend live events.  Keeping this in mind, not all hope is lost, thanks to all of the live recordings released each year by so many acts.  Some are released as full bundle packages while others are released just as DVDs or Blu-rays.  Some are even released solely on CD.  Regardless of the platforms, the availability of so many live recordings is unquestionably important for audiences.  Staying on that topic, the live CDs made available are worth noting in their own right.  That is the the case regardless of whether or not said CDs are bundled with DVD or Blu-ray counterparts.  That is because, again, even if the CDs come alongside a live audio visual component, that audio only component can and does oftentimes, translate differently than DVD and Blu-ray recordings.  Keeping this in mind, Phil’s Picks is offering a list of the year’s top new live CDs.

Included in this year’s list are standalone CD recordings and CDs included as part of bundles.  The titles featured in this year’s list include live recordings from Curtis Knight, Jon Cleary, Alter Bridge, The Dead Daisies and many others.  Simply put, they run the gamut from one genre to another across the musical universe.  Topping this year’s list is Dagger Records and Experience Hendrix, LLC’s new Jimi Hendrix recording Curtis Knight featuring Jimi Hendrix Live at George’s Club 20 1965 & 1966.  This live recording features performances by Hendrix well before he became an international superstar — performances that showed his talent even then.  Also included in this year’s list are recordings from Foghat, Alter Bridge, Armored Saint and others.  As is the case with every Phil’s Picks year-ender, this list features the top 10 best new titles plus five additional honorable mention titles for a total of 15 titles.  Staying on that note, here for your consideration is Phil’s Picks 2017 Top 10 New Live CDs.

PHIL’S PICKS 2017 TOP 10 NEW LIVE CDs

  1. Curtis Knight feat. Jimi Hendrix — Live at George’s Club 20 1965 & 1966
  2. Alter Bridge — Live at The 02 & Rarities
  3. Jon Cleary — Live at the Chickie Wah Wah
  4. Foghat — Live at The Belly Up
  5. Between The Buried and Me — Coma Ecliptic Live
  6. Armored Saint — Carpe Noctum
  7. Slipknot — Day of the Gusano
  8. Black Sabbath — The End
  9. The Rolling Stones — Live at The Fonda Theatre 2015
  10. The Who — Live at the Isle of Wight 2014
  11. Jeff Beck — Live at the Hollywood Bowl
  12. The Winery Dogs — Dog Years Live in Santiago & Beyond 2013 – 2016
  13. Def Leppard — …And There Will Be A Next Time
  14. Joe Bonamassa — Live at Carnegie Hall
  15. Fates Warning — Awaken The Guardian Live

That’s it for this list, but not for the live recordings lists.  Still on tap in this category is the year’s top new live DVDs and BDs as well as the year’s top new live recordings overall.  Before getting there though, there is at least one last list in the form of the year’s top new albums overall.  That one’s coming soon, so stay tuned.

Slipknot Tops Itself Again On Its Latest Live Recording

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

The Day of the Gusanoi is almost upon us.  This Friday, Oct. 20, the sun will rise on the day of the maggot when Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Slipknot’s new live recording Day of the GUsano in stores and online.  This latest live offering from the nine-man metal machine from Des Moines, IA is arguably the band’s best live recording to date and a work that will impress every member of the maggot corps worldwide.  Believe it or not that is due in large part not to the show’s set list, but to its very presentation, which will be discussed shortly.  The set list does play its own integral part to the recording, though. It will be discussed later.  The band’s collective performance rounds out the recording’s most important elements, and when coupled with the concert’s production values and the other noted elements, makes the recording, again, arguably the band’s best live recording to date.

Slipknot’s latest live recording Day of the Gusano is arguably the band’s best live recording to date.  It is not just another live recording, but a recording that takes audiences to the band’s 2016 Knotfest performance in Mexico.  What is truly special here is that audiences get more than just another run-of-the-mill concert here.  Along with the concert, audiences get to see the band as it tours Mexico City, interacting with fans and even offering their own personal thoughts on the fans’ reaction to the band performing for the first time in Mexico City.  The band members’ appreciation for the fans will put a smile on any viewer’s face as they take in the journey on and off the stage. Hearing front man Corey Taylor get choked up as he discusses his interaction with one fan who used Slipknot’s music to help him in his battle with cancer is one of the most moving of those offstage moments. What’s more, the dichotomy of the band’s collective fire on stage and its much more relaxed nature offstage makes for an interesting juxtaposition showing two totally different sides to the band.  That fiery energy will be discussed later.  With that in mind, the back and forth of the band’s on and offstage moments gives audiences plenty to enjoy in itself throughout this recording, serving as the recording’s cornerstone.  It is of course just one of the recording’s key elements.  The concert’s set list is just as important to discuss in examining the recording’s whole as its presentation.

The set list featured in Slipknot’s latest live recording is crucial to its whole because it represents such a large portion of the band’s current discography.  The expansive set pulls from each of the band’s five current albums, with its self-titled 1999 debut album getting the most nods at eight songs. One of that group –‘Eeyore’ – is lifted from the album’s 10th anniversary re-issue.  The band’s other four albums each get their own nods, with Iowa (2001), the band’s sophomore album, being represented here by three songs –

‘People = S***,’ ‘Metabolic’ and ‘The Heretic Anthem.’  Its third album, Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses, is represented with three of its own songs – ‘Vermilion, ‘Before I Forget’ and ‘Duality.’  2008’s All Hope Is Gone gets only two nods with ‘Psychosocial’ and ‘Til We Die’ while three songs from .5 The Gray Chapter – ‘Custer,’ ‘The Devil in I’ and ‘Sarcastrophe’ — make their way onto the set list, too.  It should be noted that the set list, as presented in the recording’s DVD/CD and Blu-ray/CD combo pack platforms vary slightly.  They are not in the same order, and the CD set list features 19 songs while the DVD and BD set list features 17 songs.  The two songs featured on the recording’s CD but not on the DVD/BD are ‘People = S***’ and ‘742617000027.’  Why these two songs are included in one side but not the other, and why the set lists differ in their orders is anyone’s guess, but that aside, the set list on each side is still certain to keep audiences engaged and entertainment from start to finish since they give audiences such a full picture of the band’s body of work so far.  Keeping this in mind, it should be clear now why the set list that makes up the concert’s body is so critical to this recording’s whole.  It is not the last of the recording’s most important elements either.  The band’s stage presence – and by relation the concert’s production values, which enhance the band’s stage presence even more – puts the finishing touch to the recording’s whole.

Throughout the course of its life, Slipknot has made most of its fame not through its music, but through its live performance of its music.  The band’s stage show has been called “fiery,” “chaotic,” and so many other terms in the best ways possible.  The performance here is absolutely nothing different.  From start to finish, all nine members of Slipknot give the performance their all in order to entertain their fans.  Taylor leads the way once again with his commanding presence while guitarists Mick Thompson and Jim Root work alongside bassist Alessandro Venturella to add even their own collective energy to the concert.  The exact same can be said of the contributions of drummer Jay Weinberg, percussionists Shawn Crahan and Chris Fehn, DJ Sid Wilson and fellow electronics specialist Craig Jones.  While the band’s performance is just as fiery, energetic and chaotic as ever, it only does so much.  Thanks to the work of those who recorded the concert and those who edited it, that fire and energy is taken to a whole other level with shots that give fans who might not have been on site the best seat in the house and then some.  Thanks to their work, audiences are taken high above the sea of fans, on-stage with the band and even into the midst of those fans throughout the show’s 91-minute run time.  The work of those behind the cameras and the computers couples with the band’s own stage presence to make that run time feel like so much more in the best way possible, proving once and for all why both elements are so crucial to the recording’s whole.  Both are equally important and in turn, must both be noted.  When they are joined with the expansive set list that forms the recording’s body, and the very presentation of the concert, the end result is a recording that is arguably Slipknot’s best live recording to date and one more of this year’s top new live recordings.

Slipknot’s latest live recording Day of the Gusano is arguably the band’s best live effort to date.  It is also easily one more of this year’s top new live recordings.  That is due in part to a presentation that takes audiences on a journey with the band both on and off stage from beginning to end.  The expansive set list gives audiences a vivid picture of the band’s body of work so far.  The collective presence of the band throughout the concert and the production values that heighten the band’s presence even more put the finishing touch on the recording.  Each element is important in its own right, as has been noted above.  All things considered, they make Day of the Gusano, once more, arguably the band’s best live effort to date and one more of this year’s top new live recordings.  It will be available Friday, Oct. 20 in stores and online.  More information on Day of the Gusano is available online now along with all of Slipknot’s latest news and more at:

Korn Unveils New Video; Announces New Tour Schedule

Korn will release its new album this fall.

The band announced this week that it will release The Serenity of Suffering on Friday, October 21st via Roadrunner Records.  The record is the album’s twelfth full-length studio recording and features a guest appearance by Slipknot front man Corey Taylor.  The record is the band’s third for Roadrunner Records.  The band also released 2010’s Korn III Remember Who You Are and 2011’s The Path of Totality via Roadrunner Records.  Pre-orders for the album are open now here.

In anticipation of the album’s release the band has unveiled the video for the album’s lead single ‘Rotting in Vain’ this week via RollingStone.com.  It features Son of Anarchy star Tommy Flanagan and can be viewed online now here.  Front man Jonathan Davis explained the concept behind the song in a recent interview noting that it is “about being in that black place, being in situations that I don’t like in life–be it relationships, or feeling when you’re stuck and you’re just being abused or you don’t like where you’re at, and you just sit there and rot.”  He went on to explain that the song came from the years that it takes to figure a way out while still battling those feelings.  “It takes you years and years to figure out how to claw your way out. That’s where ‘Rotting in Vain’ came from. I’m just sitting there, fucking dying and letting it happen for years and years and not helping myself to get out of that place. That’s the vibe that inspired the song,” he said.

Korn is currently touring in support of its upcoming album.  It launched a co-headlining tour this week alongside Rob Zombie.  In This Moment is joining the bands as a special guest on the tour, which currently runs through September 3rd.  After that the band will take some time to rest before heading back out on the road again on September 24th alongside Breaking Benjamin for another co-headlining tour dubbed the “Nocturnal Underground Tour.”  Motionless in White and Silver Snakes will join the bands as special guests on the tour.  Korn also has performances at the Louder Than Life Festival and Aftershock Festival scheduled for October.  Those dates and Korn’s complete tour schedule are noted below.
