3 classic Zevon broadcasts SAUSALITO 1978, BOSTON 1982, CLEVELAND 1992 ALL HOUSED IN ELEGANT 3CD BOX SET The perennial cult hero, Warren Zevon amassed and extraordinary body of work across his 30-plus year career, but remains a sadly underappreciated performer and composer of some of the best songs to have emerged during his working life. Tragically cut down in his prime by the ravishes of cancer, Zevon nevertheless left a recorded legacy which is still the subject of huge critical acclaim and cult status. This triple CD set collects together three fascinating radio broadcasts of live shows performed by Warren during his heyday, one each from the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s.

3 CD SET FEATURING LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM 1970, 1973 & 1976 With one of the most extraordinary career trajectories of any musical group across the past 50 years, The Band s recording career proper actually lasted less than a decade, but in that time they released seven studio albums that were jam-packed with classic tracks - nay anthems - which define the era in which they were released better than almost any other music of the time. This superb triple CD set features three excellent live performances from The Band recorded during their prime era in the 1970s, all of which feature simply the finest audio quality, the very best performances and the perfect set-lists. Taken from FM Radio Broadcasts, these shows, previously unreleased, reveal The Band at their live best during a time when they were arguably the finest contemporary music group in the world.
3 CD COLLECTION OF THE FINEST AVALABLE LIVE STEELY DAN RECORDINGS As extraordinary as the music of Steely Dan remains, the how and why of it all coming about is stranger still. The joining forces of two nerdy students - one an English Lit. major, the other a musical prodigy in the late 1960s could hardly be seen as the most promising recipe for success, nevermind a springboard for the creation of perhaps the most unique, creative, musically adventurous, enormously listenable and downright joyous run of albums in the entire history of pop music. But despite it all that was what the mighty Dan achieved during the 1970s and beyond, and as those records continue to inspire just about everyone who hears them, the mystery remains.
3x RADIO BROADCASTS ON 3 CDs - CAPTURING DIFFERENT ERAS OF THE CAPTAIN S CAREER Noted for his powerful singing voice with its wide range, Van Vliet also played the harmonica, saxophone and numerous other wind instruments. The group drew attention with their cover of Bo Diddley's "Diddy Wah Diddy", which became a regional hit. It was followed by their acclaimed debut album Safe as Milk, released in 1967 on Buddah Records. The first disc in this set concentrates on this period of Beefheart s career, featuring a radio broadcast of a live performance at The Avalon Ballroom in 1966, and a number of other tracks from various radio sessions from 1967 and 1968. By 1974, six albums in and frustrated by a lack of commercial success, Beefheart released two records of more conventional rock music that at the time were critically panned.
Compiling the third and fourth solo albums by sideman-to-the-stars David Bromberg, Wanted Dead or Alive/Midnight on the Water includes Bromberg's virtuoso musicianship, eccentric songwriting, and endearingly off-key vocals, along with plenty of guest spots: Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and on the first, most of the Grateful Dead.
