Blind Faith - Live at London's Hyde Park - June 7, 1969

MusicTelevision.Com presents Blind Faith
The Original Blind Faith Record Cover

The history of Blind Faith, that featured Steve WinwoodEric ClaptonGinger Baker and Rick Grech, is a quick story. The group only released one record in 1969, and the group's self titled record shot to #1 in the U.S. airplay charts in August 1969, achieving platinum sales status, also hit #1 on the U.K. airplay charts in September of that year and achieved Gold sales status there.

The original cover, featured above, was banned in some countries and created a bit of social outrage in some corners, which did not hurt sales and made it more collectable when the record labels made changes to circumvent the bans.

Below are a few clips of Blind Faith's debut when they performed at a free concert in London's Hyde Park on June 7, 1969.

In a time when few artists and bands have anything meaningful to say with regard to bringing about revolutionary change, it does not hurt to flash back to actual changemakers and revolutionaries who would be raising hell if they were still here today. GC

A Timeless Take of Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli

Below is a beautiful live recording of artists Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.

The song below is "Time to Say Goodbye", is a song from the albums, "Timeless" (in Europe) and "Time to Say Goodbye" (in N. America), by English soprano and classical-crossover artist Sarah Brightman and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. The song itself is a cover version of the original 1995 recording "Con te partirò" by Andrea Bocelli, released as a single and included on his album, "Bocelli, Romanza". The Brightman-Bocelli release was a huge success throughout Europe, reaching #1 in Germany and several other countries. This live version is from Brightman's first full concert recording, "Sarah Brightman: In Concert", from London's Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Paul Bateman. Guest artists include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Adam Clark and Andrea Bocelli. The concert was released to video in 1998. The concert was directed by David Mallet.

Esperanza Spalding and Radio Music Society

This fantastic live concert footage is from the Verucchio Festival in Rimini Italy, where Esperanza Spalding and her project known as Radio Music Society performed the song from Michael Jackson's Off The Wall album titled "I Can't Help It". The song, originally written by Stevie Wonder and Susaye Greene-Browne, is one more deep jazz take by Spalding as she be-bops & scats a 3 minute intro trading with Tia Fuller on sax before breaking into the song with Spalding's angelic voice while simultaneously laying down some very tasty & funky bass lines while backed by an incredible band. This is that "it" thing all around... inspired giftedness at it's finest! GC

Lianne La Havas - Live in Concert

Just below is a beautifully done live performance by Lianne La Havas for the BBC's 6 Music 10th Anniversary TV special. There is a nice rawness that gets down to who Lianne La Havas is in this performance, that set her apart from her studio recordings. After having seen her twice in LA, she is the real deal live. She's not faking it and doesn't need big production. She connects, I believe, because she's been there, through the pain. She has told the story, at live shows I have attended, as well as found online, of her broken heart that drove her to pick up the guitar and write her songs. Her tasty songs are proof that a broken heart is a top fuel of champion songwriters, yet again. GC

Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones - Mannish Boy - Live At Checkerboard Lounge

MusicTelevision.Com presents the Rolling Stones and Muddy Waters performing Mannish Boy

On November 22 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Buddy Guy's club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is right here. Enjoy! GC

Dom La Nena

Dom La Nena is a angel faced twenty four year old Brazilian born cellist and singer who became a citizen of the world as she has lived in many places on her journey to become the artist she is. Two takes of the same song are below and not sure which take of the same song I enjoy most. Both are unique in their own way and very delightful. The first one below is a fresh live take that the Los Angeles based radio station KCRW recorded in their studio earlier today. It is an excellent stripped bare live performance that offers a beautiful glimpse and sweet recording of this fine artist! The next take is the studio version of the song and conceptual official music video. Enjoy! GC

On March 25, 1983, Michael Jackson performed for the 25th Anniversary of Motown Records in front of a live studio audience at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. It was on this great day in music history that King of Pop introduced the forever famous Moonwalk while performing Billie Jean. The Moonwalk was actually developed by Bruno Falcon, widely known as Taco, one of Michael's friends, choreographers and dancers for many years.

Ten Years After at Woodstock (1969)

Received Bob Lefsetz' mailbag e-mail this morning and read the letter (down below) from Terry Ellis, co-founder of Chrysalis Records and a producer tied to way too many great records to name including my favorite Jethro Tull album titled Aqualung. Terry wrote to Bob about Alvin Lee who just passed away recently. He referenced Alvin with Ten Years After at Woodstock. Had to revisit this excellent take. Enjoy! GC

Ten Years After - I'm Going Home at Woodstock on August 17th 1969

Band members: Alvin Lee -- guitar, vocals, Leo Lyons -- bass, Ric Lee -- drums, Chick Churchill -- organ

From: Terry Ellis
To: Bob Lefsetz
Subject: Alvin Lee


When Alvin Lee walked on the stage of a small UK blues club in 1967 in his trademark clogs, blonde locks and dramatic good looks and began to play that red Gibson with the peace symbol sticker, fingers flying across the frets, you just knew you were in the presence of a star.

Ultimately millions agreed as Ten Years After stole the show at the UK's Sunbury Jazz and Blues Festival in 1968 and later, as, for many, Alvin became the face of Woodstock after the movie was released in 1970.

Alvin was a warm man, with a ready smile and an easy sense of humor to go with those flying fingers.

As an aspiring musician in England, Alvin entrusted his life and career to two recent University graduates, still wet behind the ears! In doing so, Alvin helped put in place the first building block of a business which became known as Chrysalis.

Chris Wright and I will always be grateful.

Alvin left us far too early and we will miss him,

Susan Calloway
I love artists who can sit down with an instrument and sing their asses off with little or no pomp and circumstance. Susan Calloway delivers that in this most excellent live performance of her original song titled Chasin The Sun. First saw this video below a few years ago and I still love to crank it up regularly and ponder her words that reflect on that dose of reality dreamers with big ideas are faced with as they are often kicked to the curb, but manage to get up again and keep going. Whether one loves the song or not, it's a song with legs that keeps selling and selling and selling in good numbers for any artist, indie or major. She may not yet be a household name in America, but she is organically growing a strong international following by traveling and playing shows around the world. GC
