Heroin sounds very good here, and Oh Jim has an extended drum solo. Rock ‘n’ Roll is very funky too.

The CD-R I received this on had the sound considerably balanced to the right on CD 1, and significantly to the
left on CD 2, so some corrective work was carried out.

The Midnight Cafe Mix #2 – It’s All Right

The Midnight Cafe Mix #2 – It’s All Right

Download MP3@320

My goal was to do a mix every month and here it is the middle of March and I’m just getting my second one out.  Truth is I had this one ready at the end of February but kept forgetting to post it.  Once again this is a pretty random mix.  These aren’t the greatest bootleg songs of all time.  They aren’t the best performances by these artists nor even the best versions of these songs.  Its just a bunch of songs that I like, put together for fun.

The transitions should be a little better this time than last, though I’m still learning how to edit the MP3s.

1. “Where the Streets Have No Name” – U2
1987.05.15 – Rutherford, NJ

U2 at the height of their powers.  I always loved this song as the opener for The Joshua Tree and it works really well opening this mix.

2. “Good Lovin'” – The Grateful Dead
1978.04.12 – Durham, NC

Not my favorite period for the Dead, nor my favorite cover song, but they do a really nice rockin’ version here.

3. “One More Cup of Coffee” – Bob Dylan
1993.11.16 – New York, NY

From the infamous Supperclub shows.  The all acoustic version knocks some of the menace out of this song, but the excellent playing more than makes up for it.

4.  “Wings for Wheels” – Bruce Springsteen
1975.02.05 – Bryn Mawr PA

An early rendition of “Thunder Road.”  Its fun to catch the various differences between this and its “official” version.

5. “Fred Jones Part 2” – Ben Folds
2005.12.29 – XM Radio

Slowing things down a bit comes this ballad from Ben Folds.

6. “Mission in the Rain” – Jerry Garcia Band
1989.01.28 – San Francisco, CA

I’m usually not a fan of this song, but Jerry’s got a nice solo in it which is followed by some interesting stuff by Melvin Seals.  It starts off really slow and soft but it cooks up eventually.

7. “Breakdown” – Tom Petty
1999.04.23 – Hamburg, Germany

Tom Petty gets things rocking again.  I really like the little vocal rave up at the end.

8. “Sweet Jane” – Lou Reed
1974.05.14 – Stockholm, Sweden

Holy moly is Lou on fire here.  The hold band just smokes.

9. “Heroes” David Bowie
2003.11.22 – Dublin, Ireland

The first bit of this is clipped but its well worth the slight error there to hear the rest of it.

10. “Vanlose Stairway” – Van Morrison
1983.07.03

It doesn’t get any smoother than to have Van take us away on the Vanlose Stairway.

From the original uploader:
I got this version from bootblogger. Very likely, it is sourced from an upload of lurid_uk in 2008. Track lengths match and it
also has the interview lurid had added. Flac file size differs by around 5 mb, though. Not sure if lurid had added some scans,
too (He didn’t mention in his text, though). So, maybe flacs have been changed a bit.

Anyway, I grabbed lurid’s info from the bot:

“Street Hassle” European Tour 1978

10 August: Eindhoven
11 August: Leiden
12 August: Amsterdam (Groningen?)
13 August: Bilzen Jazz Rock Festival
?? August: Cologne (?)

The tour to promote “Street Hassle” started in San Francisco in March 1978 and then rolled across North America with Lou reputedly
drunk and stoned for much of it. There was supposed to be a follow-on European tour but this (mostly) fell through for reasons not
known to me: the end result was a 4 or 5 date visit to Holland and Belgium in August. (It’s never been absolutely clear whether or not
there was also a show in Cologne – I suspect not). Lou was initially scheduled to headline an open-air festival at Charlton Athletic’s
football stadium in London on July 22nd, but that festival was cancelled. An audience recording dated “Amsterdam 12 August 1978”
exists, but there is also a Dutch press ad for a show in Groningen on 12 August.

The tail end of the “Take No Prisoners” tour: same band, similar set list, but no jokes from Lou. But this is a great version of “Waiting
For My Man” – long and bluesy. Also nice versions of “Coney Island Baby” and “Street Hassle” – there’s a lot of passion in Lou’s vocals.
(As compared to “Walk On The Wild Side”, where it sounds as if each pained word is being forcibly squeezed out of his mouth….)

The Raven captured a reasonable quality mono recording of this show. It’s a little bit “boomy” but still very listenable. There’s also a bit
of damage to the master tape in a few places but nothing drastic.

track 11 is lifted from the vinyl bootleg LP “Leave Lou Reed Alone”

Notes from the original uploader:

The late 1974 US tour to promote “Sally Can’t Dance” was Lou’s amphetamine and alcohol – fuelled assault on the unsuspecting youth of North America. The RCA publicity machine had moved into top gear, but Lou was speeding way, way ahead of them. While they were pushing him as a user-friendly glam-rock/white soul superstar, he was dying iron crosses in his hair, living with a half-Mexican transsexual called Rachel and (simulating) shooting up on stage. The new LP and 45 were being being heavily promoted via nationwide TV ads featuring our man in trademark leather jacket, blonde hair and shades (…follow the bouncing ball and sing along with Lou…..). Whatever RCA were doing, it worked, and “Sally” was in the US top 10 LP chart. Lou was later quoted as saying “….I slept through that LP – whatever they suggested I said yes….”. It seemed that the further Lou descended into self-parody, the more records he sold, and the more pressure RCA put on him to produce even more “product”. This would ultimately backfire in mid 1975, when he vomited up “Metal Machine Music” and then had a very public breakdown during the Australian leg of the ’75 world tour. Lou wouldn’t perform in public again until late 1976.

I think this is a simply outstanding show. Lou may be out of it, but the band most certainly are not. I love the way you can hear Lou slapping the mic stand at the end of “Vicious”. The vocals alternate between detached and manic throughout this set, but are particularly expressive during “Kill Your Sons” (surely the best EVER live version of this song). It’s as if he’s standing on the edge of a cliff and he’s just about to jump off because he KNOWS he can fly. This tour was the only outing for “NY Stars” and “Animal Language” – these live renditions sound better than the studio versions to me. You can hear him sneering as he spits out the words to “NY Stars”. It sounds as if someone broke a string during “Animal Language”: the band start a loose jam while it’s being replaced. Lou starts vamping the words to “Waiting” during the jam, and just continues singing it when the band move on to the “Sally Can’t Dance” riff. The end result is a unique medley of “Waiting” and “Sally” (you have to wonder how long it took Lou to realise he was singing the wrong song – he did pretty much the same at the Chalmette show in November, singing “Vicious” while the band played “Sweet Jane”). “White Light White Heat” is a heavy metal prototype for every late 1970s punk band. “Goodnight Ladies” is a gas, with the whole band gathering round the microphone – you can (just) hear someone in the background asking where the “Jacks” (Jack Daniels) is…..they were having a good time. “Rock And Roll” is simply sublime.

The stereo recording made at Dayton was missing “Intro/Sweet Jane” and part of “Vicious” and there was a tape break during “Wild Side”: mono soundboard recordings from the New York concert have been used to replace those songs.
