Louis Armstrong - Chapel Hill, NC (05/04/54)|Bootleg Nation

A great show for jazz snobs and noobs alike.

I used to think I was a jazz-man. A great lover of the genre. Then I met the snobs. One time I went over to a friend's house and hung out. We ate some grub, listened to some tunes and talked about a wide range of subjects. Eventually we talked about music and a friend of the friend asked me if I liked jazz and then when I answered yes, he asked me to name some artists. I rattled off a list of names including Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, and Ella Fitzgerald. With typical jazz snob disdain he said

Download MP3@320kps:  Part 1, Part II, Part III, Part IV Thus far in the Bootleg Nation I have presented complete recordings of single concerts.  These type shows make up the vast majority of my bootleg collection, and in fact of all the bootlegs that exist in the world. But today I want to talk a bit about another type of bootleg, what you can loosely categorize as demos, alternate tracks, and rarities.  Musicians often go into the recording studio with only loose ideas on the songs they want to record for an album.  They will generally record everything they

Bootleg Nation: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings - Milwaukee, WI (05/22/10)

You should probably rethink your career as a living, breathing human being if this show doesn't get you shaking what God gave you...

For my money there is nothing like a live concert.  Standing in front of a band with hundreds of like-minded fans hearing great music quite literally being created before your eyes is nothing short of magic.  The energy, the power, the vibrations that pound right through you is something you just can't get anywhere else.  Watching (and listening) to musicians connect with themselves, the audience, and their muse in a real time setting blows my mind every freaking time. I love everything about a concert -- being able to physically see the band on the stage, the music, standing
