The Secret Policeman's Concert.


The Secret Policeman's Ball is the name informally used for the long-running series of benefit shows staged initially in England to raise funds for the human rights organisation Amnesty International, many individual shows used variations on this name. The shows started in 1976 featuring popular British comedians but later included leading musicians and actors. The Secret Policeman's Ball shows are credited by many prominent entertainers with having galvanised them to become involved with Amnesty and other social and political causes in succeeding years. There have been four distinct eras of the Amnesty benefit shows. The shows of the first era (1976–1981) yielded films, television specials, home-videos, and albums that have since been widely seen and heard internationally. The three subsequent eras (1987–1989, 1991–2001 and 2006 onwards) have primarily featured locally popular British performers – and spin-off products have been released mainly in the UK.

Jams & Gems of Eric Clapton & Friends


Clapton é "GOD"? Não sei... Mas vamos analisar de outra forma. Clapton é um guitarrista talentoso... Todas as vertentes musicais o conhecem. Em todas as bandas que tocou, Do Yardbirds até seus discos atuais, todos têm uma qualidade musical impecável (e indiscutível). Além de detonar na guitarra, Clapton sempre foi um bom camarada. Creio ser o mais generoso músico que conheci. Tocou com todos que podia, que o convidavam... GOD?... Não sei, mas um grande músico, e um grande ser humano.

Eric Clapton & Friends - The A.R.M.S. Benefit Concert


Demorou 30 anos para que os fãs de rock pudessem ouvir novamente uma das raríssimas vezes em que três gênios da guitarra tocassem ao mesmo tempo em um palco. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, a santíssima trindade da guitarra inglesa, excursionou por alguns meses, ao lado de outros astros do rock, como Steve Winwood e Joe Cocker, entre 1983 e 1984, fazendo parte de uma turnê beneficente em prol da A.R.M.S., uma entidade britânica de apoio à pesquisa de uma doença chamada esclerose múltipla. Alguns dos shows foram transformados em dois concorridos vídeos em VHS chamados “A.R. M. S. Concert'', lançados em meados dos anos 90, mas jamais reeditados em DVD por questões de direitos autorais e o mesmo em relação ao áudio, só lançado uma única vez em CD, em edição limitadíssima. 


O concerto – e sua turnê norte-americana subsequente – foi organizada pelo baixista e cantor inglês Ronnie Lane (ex-Small Faces e The Faces), que foi diagnosticado com esclerose múltipla, uma doença incurável e que provoca, entre outras coisas, o atrofiamento de músicos e afeta os nervos, em 1980. Membro emérito da entidade, juntou alguns amigos para a série de concertos beneficentes para arrecadar fundos a serem aplicados em pesquisas sobre a doença e na procura de uma eventual cura. Lane morreu em 1998, aos 51 anos, bastante debilitando, de problemas cardíacos agravados pela esclerose múltipla. Na série de concertos, um momento histórico acontece: Page, Beck e Clapton tocam juntos em duas músicas, “Layla'', grande sucesso de Clapton com o Derek and the Dominos, e em “Stairway to Heaven'', superclássico do Led Zeppelin, em versão instrumental.









The ARMS Charity Concerts were a series of charitable rock concerts in support of Action into Research for Multiple Sclerosis in 1983. The first (and initially planned to be the only) event took place at the Royal Albert Hall on September 20, 1983, with subsequent dates occurring in the United States, with slightly different lineups of musicians. The idea for hosting the concert was envisaged by Ronnie Lane, ex-bassist for The Small Faces and The Faces, himself a casualty of multiple sclerosis. The concert was billed as The Ronnie Lane Appeal for ARMS and featured a star-studded line-up of British musicians, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Steve Winwood, Andy Fairweather Low, Bill Wyman, Kenney Jones and Charlie Watts. The concert was particularly notable in the fact that it was the first occasion on which Clapton, Beck and Page, each a former lead guitarist for The Yardbirds, had performed together on stage.

Blues - Down Home Slide


Although slide guitar compilations at times seem to proliferate like kudzu, this particular collection has much to recommend adding it to the collection. For openers, there's the inclusion of three previously unreleased live performances from Robert Nighthawk. Playing in a 1964 Chicago concert accompanied by Johnny Young on guitar and mandolin, and Little Walter on acoustic harmonica (a rarity), Nighthawk turns in stellar readings of Jimmy Rogers' "That's All Right" (a number he apparently never recorded anywhere else), Little Walter's "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" (set to a "Dust My Broom" arrangement), and his standard "Anna Lee," all in highly relaxed versions that add much to his meager discography. Other highlights include a track of Eddie Taylor making a rare appearance on slide with Nighthawk's "Jackson Town," four tracks by Big Joe Williams, two from Fred McDowell, a Johnny Littlejohn instrumental with Jimmy Rogers on rhythm guitar ("Slidin'"), and Homesick James guesting behind vocalist George Coleman on "Mad and Evil." Selections from David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Arthur Weston, Blind Connie Williams, John Henry Barbee, Elijah Brown and Johnny Shines complete this excellent collection.

Boogie Woogie - Rockin Roots Piano


It was early in the Thirties: after emerging from the piano-bars and honky-tonks of Texas, boogie woogie moved into rent parties in Harlem. The fashion had started. Passing jazzmen, converted bluesmen or authentic diehards, the aces of the keyboard here show all the richness of this powerful, obsessional genre that was the most African of piano jazz styles, an essential component of what became rock and roll.
