Amon Düül II (or Amon Düül 2) is a German rock band. The group is generally considered to be one of the founders of the German rock music scene and a seminal influence on the development of Krautrock. The band emerged from the radical West German commune scene of the late 1960s, with others in the same commune including the future founders of the Baader-Meinhof Group (the Amon Düül II band members disagreed with their violent agenda). Founding members are Chris Karrer, Peter Leopold, Falk Rogner, John Weinzierl and Renate Knaup. Their first album Phallus Dei (God's Penis), released in 1969, is considered a milestone in German rock history.[citation needed] They received offers to write music for films, winning a German film award, the Deutscher Filmpreis, for their contribution to the film San Domingo. Their second album Yeti was their breakthrough album in the United Kingdom.[citation needed] In 1975, they signed with Atlantic Records, and disbanded in 1981. Wikipedia

It was broadcast on NPR's Jazz Alive program, but this double disc contains the entire performance, with more than 40 minutes of additional music.

100 years after its outbreak, this series lets viewers experience WWI solely through the eyes of those who lived it.
History tells us 'what was'. It tells us when things happened. When kings and cultures lived and died, armies were raised and vanquished, and mighty empires rose and fell. History, as we know it from books, is often boring, for it fails to answer one very simple question: What was it like? When war broke out in Europe in July 1914, people on all sides believed it would be over by Christmas. Little could they know just how wrong they were. A seemingly petty conflict in Bosnia soon snowballed into the first truly global conflict.

Phil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine was a brilliant though short-lived quartet that made a handful of albums between 1968 and 1973, though most of them are long out of print. Happily, this early studio effort, with pianist George Gruntz, bassist Henri Texier, and drummer Daniel Humair, has been reissued in Japan by Toshiba-EMI, all of whom provide first-rate rhythmic support and make the most of their solos. The leader's "And When We Are Young" was written in tribute to Senator Robert Kennedy, who was gunned down by a cowardly assassin in the spring of 1968 in the midst of Kennedy's celebration of his presidential primary victory in California. The piece begins with a mournful dirge before cutting loose with some wailing post-bop.

By the end of the '70s, the Beach Boys were turning into a novelty act with their live shows and spewing forth easily forgettable records. One would have hoped that with the emergence of a new decade the group would have adapted a fresh outlook and returned to its former levels of creativity.

2006 digitally remastered two CD set, subtitled the Live Anthology, features not only the original Slade Alive! Album but also Slade Alive! Volume Two, Slade on Stage and Alive at Reading for a total of 33 rockin' and stompin' Slade performances! The first live album 'Slade Alive!' was recorded at the Command Theatre Studio in London, for just £600, and released without overdubs of any sort in March 1972. 'Vol. Two' was culled from American concert performances in the autumn of 1976 as well as British dates the following spring. The story of Slade's renaissance at the 1980 Reading Festival has long since passed into the realms of rock music folklore. It was a performance that resurrected their flagging career and several tracks were originally issued on a pair of EPs. Slavo.

Stephen Stills - Man Alive! (2005)  Music

Fourteen years after his last solo outing, STILLS ALONE, Stephen Stills unveiled 2005's MAN ALIVE!, a remarkably vital and dynamic album that features the veteran performer penning almost every song and playing many of the record's instruments. Although David Crosby is absent, Stills's other CSNY mates, Graham Nash and Neil Young, turn up separately. While Nash subtly sticks to backing-vocal duty, Young contributes his typically incendiary electric-guitar lines to the hard-rocking "'Round the Bend" and offers up vocal harmonies and acoustic-guitar work on the spare, soulful "Different Man." A more unlikely cameo comes in the form of pianist Herbie Hancock's prominent presence on the 11-minute epic "Spanish Suite," which also features Latin percussion great Willie Bobo. Of course, Stills is the main attraction on MAN ALIVE!, with his husky voice carrying every song, including the socially conscious CSN-like track "Feed the People" and the blues-tinged "Piece of Me".
