Review from Lauren

             

Cleveland Grand Prix Road Report

Burke Airport - June 24, 2006

              

 

 

As soon as we heard that front row reserved seating would be available on Thursday for this Saturday performance, we decided that a spur of the moment road trip from Detroit was going to be doable. The Burke Airport was only a short distance from the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and I marveled at the giant sculpture of a rubber stamp that said “FREE” in letters printed backwards as we passed by. You couldn’t ask for more perfect weather that night.

 

The stage was set up right beside the racetrack, with bleacher seating on the other side to accommodate a crowd of around 2,500 or so. There was a “slight” problem with the reserved seating being placed 50 feet from the stage, but it soon went away. To make a long story short, it took the fans about 3 seconds to abandon their chairs when Paul first appeared on stage. After about 10 more seconds, hundreds of people had safely made their way up front, and Paul had his audience close to him where huge smiles would be exchanged and handshakes would be plentiful throughout the evening.

 

The highlight of the performance for me was hearing “Simple Man” performed for the first time. I love everything about that song and effect that its timeless quality has over me. There was a beautiful sunset occurring behind one corner of the stage at the halfway point of the show, and the fresh smell of the summer air coming off lake added another dimension to make the night unique.

 

As people were getting into in a singing mood, the most humorous moment of the night came when Paul realized that the audience could only recall a few words to the Hendrix songs. He started joking with us about how good we sounded, and then began motioning towards to the sky to give us some clues. It reminded me of how a teacher will drop hints to the class to help the students arrive at the right answer to a question. It was just hilarious to discover what a short attention span everyone had and how un-teachable we were at that particular moment.

 

The audience soon made up for it during the Bad Company numbers that followed, coming through loud and clear with all the words this time, and finally revealing what a true blue “PR crowd” sounds like. Just the same, I hope that Paul keeps these beautiful Hendrix songs in the set even if he has to sing them by himself!!  Here is the set list for what became a very successful two-hour show. Like the recent Queen performances, the time went by far too fast.

Story of David Elliot

 

News Exclusive to ARN !!!!

NEW SLEEVE COMING SHORTLY

LOST RECORDING OF

PAUL KOSSOFF

called ALL ONE

 

Here is the

link to hear the lost track of Koss on the new David Elliot cd

CD AVAILABLE HERE

 

Written by Daivd Elliot
 
     "I went to live in England in 1970, and already a BIG Free fan.  I went
to see them many times around London, and even hung out with them backstage
once.  I couldn't believe how amazingly receptive the audiences were to
them, and everyone in the audience seemed to know every single word to every
song.

      Before I got to London, I was playing in a small club in Key
West, Florida, where on an off night I met up with a fellow named Hal
Atkinson, who played sax for The Brotherhood of man, and he proceeded to
tell me that if I was intending on going to London to get a record deal, I
should look up Lionel Conway, who was president of Island Publishing at the
time.  I went to London, called Lionel, and told him I was a life long
friend of Hal Atkinson's, (so he HAD to see me, ha!).  I played him about
four original songs, and he said have you got anymore?  I said, sure, I just
didn't have them memorized yet (I hadn't WRITTEN them yet!).  That was a
Monday, and he told me to come back on Friday, with them memorized, because
there was someone he wanted me to meet.  Well, I stayed in for four days and
wrote about ten songs.  I was living in a rough area of London called
Brixton that really shouldn't have been condusive to creating, but it
worked.

     I went back to Lionel's office on Friday, and he introduced me to Mick
Grabham, soon to be the lead guitarist with Procul Harum.  I played him my
newly 'memorized' songs and then we booked studio time, with the intent of
getting a record deal after the record was recorded.

     I did two albums on Atlantic Records while living in London. Lionel
Conway became my manager, but around 1974, he decided to move to Los
Angeles, so he put me on to John Glover to be my new manager, who used to be
Free's manager.   At that point Free had broken up and John was managing
Paul Kossoff.  Paul was trying to get a new band together.

     One night, the day after I did a gig in Bath (not A bath, but the
place!),  I needed to find John Glover to get paid for the gig.  I found out
he was in Island Studios recording with Paul Kossoff.  I thought, well, that
would be interesting.  I went.  Paul was there with Mickey Feat playing
bass, and Mike Kellie on drums.  Paul, turned to me and asked my if I had
any songs we could record  (talk about right place, right time).  I said
yes, in fact I wrote a song back in Florida years ago when I was listening
to Free (on vinyl), that was VERY much a Free type of song, I thought.  So
we recorded it.  It turned out to be the song ALL ONE.  After the session
Paul invited me to Stevie Winwood's house, as it was Stevie's birthday.  We
came to the door and actually Stevie recognized me right off the bat . 
"Well, David Elliott, come on in".  Lionel Conway had my pictures on his
office wall for a good while, so anyone that went in there saw enough of me
for a life time.  Anyway Stevie was very gracious and Jim Capaldi and Chris
Wood were there too.  We all sat down on the floor and had a couple glasses
of wine, and a good time was had by all.

     At the end of the song ALL ONE on the jam part, Paul Kossoff's B string
went flat, but of course with today's technology you can fix all that, so no
one can tell."

sound clips


 

Mike Lowry is The Total Package!!! He brings to the stage years of experience in his high energy show.
 His guitar playing is mature beyond his years. His talent has attracted seasoned professionals,
allowing Mike to put together a dynamic band, bringing down the house with every performance.
The release of his new CD has put him on the road performing throughout the Southeast.

Mike has opened up for James Brown, Levon Helms, Tyrone Davis and has performed on the same music
bill with blues heavyweights such as Jimmy Vaughan, Dr. John, Charlie Musslewhite, Tinsley Ellis,
 Skeeter Brandon, Cigar Store Indians, Jimmy Thakery, just to name a few.


Mike’s most appealing quality is his modest nature. Such a dynamo of a musician on
stage and so reserved and poised off stage. His talents seem so natural and effortless.
 Full of assurance, Mike is very confident in the direction he is headed – UP! 
 

The Mike Lowry Band performs  Wednesday, June 21. at the

 

SunTrust Concerts in the Garden

KING KARMA - King Karma
 

KING KARMA - www.kingkarma.com

KING KARMA Rock and roll used to be about plugging in, turning up and letting go, but as rock has aged and changed that simple formula seems to have been forgotten for the most part. Unless you ask KING KARMA, a band fast becoming one of the most talked about new groups in the current resurgence of rock music!

Built upon the solid foundations provided by rhythm section TODD RONNING (bass) and RICK FEDYK (drums), KING KARMA's music is a gorgeous amalgamation of hard rock guitar riffs and introspective acoustic passages. Guitarist, MARKUS WOLFE succeeds, where many more famous names have failed, in that he plays with true feel and purely for the song, rather than simply to show his undoubted technical ability. To round out the line-up there's vocalist SHAUN WILLIAMSON, a man with more soul and raw emotion in his voice than a recording studio full of Boy Band Wannabes and Pop Idol hopefuls.

Lloyd Debarr, Fred Holzman, Joe Shikany

 

N'Sane is a Seattle based rock band combining three of Seattles most accomplished musicians

with high energy and a whole lot of fun. N'Sane was formed by Lloyd Debarr,

Fred Holzman and Joe Shikany to host a Sunday jam night in Seattle.

 That was in 2004 and today the band hasevolved and tightened their style to

 become one of the area's favorite 3 piece bands.

Lloyd Debarr is the lead guitarist, lead singer and front man of N'Sane.

Lloyd became a fixture in the Seattle nightclub circuit as the guitarist for The Newsboys.

 This very popular band played non-stop for years in the region. Prior to joining The Newsboys,

 Lloyd was a member of a post-grunge cult favorite called Local 808

. Lloyd also is the front man of Crosswalk, who are currently finishing their first album.

Fred Holzman--drums and vocals--is in huge demand for his drumming,

 his singing and outrageous performance. He also works with The Davanos and PowerCell.

 Fred's solid drumming forms the backbone of N'Sane which leaves

 everyone screaming RIGHT ON!

 You will never forget Freddy!!

Joe Shikany--bass and vocals--Having been lead guitarist

 for rock legend Paul Rodgers of Bad Company,

 and currently a member of Seattle's Magic Bus, PowerCell and Spike and The Impalers,

 Joe knows how to rock a big crowd. A Northwest guitar icon, Joe has worked with many of the

 Northwest's top artists including Bighorn, Kenny G, Shyanne, The Machine, Shots,

BAD COMPANY - by the time their “Burnin’ Through America” Tour reached Albuquerque,
New Mexico on 3rd
October 1976 they were now one of the Worlds biggest rock bands and were playing to sell
out gigs across America.  On this tour they played to over a million fans at 52 concerts in 70 days.

They broke attendance records at
several massive venues in Florida and Alabama as well as selling out Madison Garden within a day!

Their first three albums had all reached platinum status. However it was only two and half years since

their first classic album “Bad Co” had been released and their rise to superstardom

had been one of the swiftest ever.

Allrightnow presents the FIRST  Exclusive Review

of

Bad Company:

Live In Albuquerque NM 1976

 

Angel Air SJPCD 221

 

During the seventies the double live album was almost de rigueur amongst the major rock artists of the era. Lets face it how many double live albums from that era can you name. Live and Dangerous, Strangers In The Night, Seconds Out, Rockin’ The Fillmore and the daddy of them all Frampton Comes Alive so surely Bad Company must have released one; didn’t they?

 

Well the simple answer to that is actually no they didn’t. Yeah I know, one of the biggest bands of the seventies Bad Company did not release a double live album. Reading the sleeve notes of this absolutely amazing live album Mick Ralphs can’t explain it either other than to say the band were virtually prisoners of the album tour album routine that many bands were prone to in the seventies.

 

This stunning live album recorded during the early part of the Run With The Pack tour sets the record straight and despite the fact that it is thirty years late makes no difference to the enjoyment you will derive from this recording. The original line up of Bad Company were something to behold in the live arena and if you missed them and wondered what all the fuss was about now would be a good time to sample just what it was that made this band so successful and what the Americans took to their collective hearts as here on this album is all the proof anyone could ever want.

 

You have to understand that by the time Bad Company released their third album Run With The Pack the band really were at the top of their game. They had the songs they had the moody image and more than anything else they had one of the worlds greatest front men in Paul Rodgers. That isn’t to demean or downplay the other members of Bad Company or their part in the story because Boz Burrell, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke were and indeed remain excellent musicians and they provided the musical muscle that enabled Paul Rodgers to strut his stuff and front this wonderful band.

 

In terms of material the Bad Company set at this time featured the tried and trusted material from the first two albums (Bad Co. and Straight Shooter) with Bad Company, Can’t Get Enough, Seagull, Deal With The Preacher, Good Loving Gone Bad, Feel Like Making Love, Shooting Star and Ready For Love. Put these tracks alongside Live For The Music, Simple Man Young Blood, Honey Child and the title track from Run With The pack and it is easy to see just why this band brought audiences to their feet on the tour that spawned this recording.

 

In effect this album is a live “Greatest Hits” and I am in no doubt that if this album had come out in say late 1976 it would be revered as one of the great live albums of all time. Yes it really is that good. They do say that all good things come to those who wait and while the wait has been interminably long it really has been worth the wait. For those fans for whom Merchants Of Cool was “close but no cigar” this album will certainly stand as THE definitive “Live” bad Company album and I urge you to check this out for yourself. You know you want to.

 

This album will certainly stand as THE definitive “Live” bad Company album
