Thousand Days of Yesterdays "A Tribute to Captain Beyond"

Este post tem um motivo todo especial para mim.
Pra quem não tá nem aí com os festejos do tal momo, segue um post kilométrico pra arejar a cabeça.

Ao encontrar este álbum só achei com quase 500 mbs de tamanho e em várias partes, fato que odeio apesar de usar o jdownloader que facilita e muito os downs, eu acho um puta de um desrespeito aos amantes da música, prq mesmo que a net seja boa acho um saco esse tipo de baixada.

Nem imagino se vão achar bom ou não o álbum em si, e o CB é uma banda "seminal" (que titulozinho besta esse!!!) reconhecida no mundo todo mas pouco ou quase nada famosa em razão de outras da época e posteriores ficando mais como uma off road do que uma mainstrean; só que tenho comigo que cada um que curte som deve tirar suas próprias conclusões.Bem, bonzinho não sou mesmo, sou é teimoso, e buscando os programas ideais que muitos conhecem uma variedade imensa bem antes de mim, encontrei o "Medieval CUE Splitter v1.2", que pega aquela "nhaca" de ape, cue e flac em uma só faixa e converte em faixas normais, ainda em cue ou flac.

Encontro tb o "Monkey's Áudio" que em conjunto ao anterior, já converte as faixas pra mp3; o que muitos consideram uma heresia afinal o padrão "flac" é o melhor e qto mais simples o mp3, pior a qualidade; só que assim consegui reduzir um arquivo desconhecido, de um álbum que não sei se é bom de mais de 400 mbs pra quase 100 mbs, o que facilita pra qqr um até descartar e não perder tempo.Caso gostem ou sejam colecionadores como eu basta digitar o nome que se acha o arquivo original que citei (em cinco partes pra montar o cue e o flac) e aí fica o gosto de cada um, eu fiquei com os três formatos (maníaco não heim?) e já estou mexendo com outros flacs que tenho, mas tá aí pra quem quiser conferir uma versão diferente e menor em tamanho do famoso "Captain Beyond"; em muitos momentos até estranha mas em outros um toque até que igual na íntegra.

Pra quem não dá a mínima pro trabalho dos outros, eu refiz o post prq achei nas minhas coisas as capas originais das bandas participantes e como gosto de fazer o melhor que consigo troquei as primeiras que não possuiam a mesma qualidade e caso queiram é só clicar nelas e salvar e isso só é feito em respeito daqueles que respeitam blogs simples como este e visitam diáriamente e até seguidores se tornam o que deixa este lobo muito feliz e orgulhoso, enjoy!!!!!!!"Nesta onda de "revivals" que assolou o mundo roqueiro nos últimos tempos, um dos retornos mais inusitados foi o do CAPTAIN BEYOND, banda setentista que nos legou um dos maiores clássicos do hard-rock da época, seu auto-intitulado álbum de estréia (que contava inclusive com Rod Evans, ex-vocalista do Deep Purple), e é considerado por muitos entusiastas como a síntese de tudo que o gênero tinha de bom para mostrar ao mundo! Embora tenham lançado mais dois trabalhos, nenhum deles atingiu o status do primeiro, tanto a nível de qualidade técnica quanto de vendas, mas o fato é que até hoje a simples menção ao nome da banda causa arrepios nos 'rockers' mais sensíveis...Há pouco mais de um ano a Record Runner editou um tributo à banda, o "Thousand Days Of Yesterdays: A Tribute To Captain Beyond", contando basicamente com bandas desconhecidas, que recriaram todo o primeiro álbum, algumas valendo-se de uma roupagem "diferente", e outras simplesmente copiando os arranjos originais.Além de haverem retomado atividades em meados de 1999, e de planejar a edição de um CD ao vivo para 2001, ao que consta a banda já dispõe de algumas demos de estúdio gravadas, que deverão resultar também em um novo álbum de estúdio.E embora o baixista Lee Dorman não esteja presente nesta atual formação (Rhino na guitarra, Bobby Caldwell na bateria, Jimi Interval nos vocais, Dan Frye nos teclados e Jeff Artabasy no baixo), recentemente a banda ajudou a apoiar uma campanha com objetivo de angariar fundos para um transplante cardíaco para Lee, que culminou com o leilão no Ebay de uma jaqueta outrora pertencente a Jimi Hendrix, arrebatada por US$5.300!Como se não bastasse a participação no álbum de estréia do CB, Lee também esteve presente no "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", considerado por alguns um dos primeiros álbuns de "rock pesado" da história (embora esta afirmação suscite muitas polêmicas), tanto que até o início de 2000 ele vinha se apresentando junto ao IRON BUTTERFLY, que ao contrário do Captain, nunca encerrou totalmente as atividades.

Embora Dorman tenha postado recentemente uma nota no site oficial do IB afirmando que seu estado de saúde não está tão crítico, algumas pessoas próximas afirmam que ele precisa urgentemente de um transplante, caso contrário corre sério risco de vida."
"Thousand days of yesterdays... and it still sounds great., June 11, 2000
By bruceski (FLA United States) -This review is from: Tribute to Captain Beyond (Audio CD)


This rather strange concept was to gather Swedish and other European rock bands to do a tribute to the well respected but somewhat obscure debut by Captain Beyond.

Captain Beyond was a minor "super-group" in the early 70s that gathered together ex-members of Deep Purple, Iron Butterfly and Johny Winter. In the words of CBs drummer (the incredible Bobby Caldwell) and guitarist (the innovative Rhino) the purpose of the band was to "simply explore the various schemes of odd time signatures and arrangements." On their debut they were dramatically sucessful.

They fused together hard rock with progressive and jazz time signatures to form an accessible, but challenging brand of rock-n-roll. But if you're interested in this cd, you probably already knew that...On to the disc.
As on all tributes, some of the material is better than others. However, there is more consistancy on this one than most. Perhaps that is due to the unusual nature of this tribute, which uses a differant band for each song, despite the cd being based on two side long suites. Aside from the Flower Kings, I had never heard of any of the bands that perform here. I must admit I was a bit concerned when I saw that the first band was called Pentagram (who do a great version of Dancing Madly Backwords). But I digress..Most of the music focuses on the rock side of CB and sticks fairly close to the original arrangements. This works pretty well, although the vocal (and lyrical) interpretations at times feel very European and take some adjusting too. (Actually, some of the attempts at the lyrics are comical).

On the other hand, the two exceptions to this are probably my favorite tracks on the cd. These are: The Flower Kings doing a long, slowed version of Raging River of Fear, and Orchid Leaves doing Starglow Energy (its a bonus track, I know it wasn't on the original CB album) as an acoustic guitar piece with a female vocalist.

Also interesting are two other bonus tracks sung in Swedish.The title track, done by Five Fifteen with guest Nik Turner of Hawkwind, is also excellent. Overall this cd is a well intentioned and mostly sucessful tribute to a band that deserved much more recognition."
History
The original line-up for Captain Beyond were singer Rod Evans, drummer Bobby Caldwell, guitarist Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt, bassist Lee Dorman and keyboards Lewie Gold.
Evans was the original lead singer for Deep Purple and probably best known for his vocals on their 1968 debut chart-breaker "Hush".

Reinhardt and Dorman had played in Iron Butterfly; Dorman, in particular, played on most of Butterfly's early albums, including their 1968 breakthrough In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.Caldwell had come to prominence playing in the group Johnny Winter And with Rick Derringer and Johnny Winter.

Lewie Gold was a well respected keyboardist from Florida. He left due to personal reasons before the first album was recorded. This line-up recorded the self-titled debut album, released in 1972.

Following this album Caldwell left the band to join Derringer and was replaced by drummer Brian Glascock.
Also joining the band around this time were Reese Wynans (later of Double Trouble) on keyboards and Guille Garcia on congas. The record company's chosen producer, Giorgio Gomelsky, did not like Glascock's drumming and requested a new drummer.Glascock was released and Martin Rodriguez was brought in on drums on the recommendation of Garcia.
This six man line-up recorded the group's second album, Sufficiently Breathless. Tension during the recording of Sufficiently Breathless led to Evans quitting.
The original line-up reformed later in 1973 for a US tour but the band split up at the end of the year.

The band reformed in 1976 Willy Daffern on vocals, and Bobby Caldwell, Rhino and Lee Dorman completing the line-up. They then recorded the band's third album Dawn Explosion on Warner Bros., but broke up the in the year (1978).

Reinhardt and Caldwell reformed Captain Beyond in 1998 with Jimi Interval on vocals, Dan Frye on keyboards, and Jeff Artabasy on bass.
Since then they have been performing at shows and have released a four track EP.

In 1999, Swedish record label Record Heaven released a tribute to Captain Beyond entitled Thousand Days of Yesterday. The album features fellow 70s rockers Pentagram playing "Dancing Madly Backwards".

Captain Beyond once again disbanded in 2003 when lead guitarist Larry Reinhardt developed cancer. He was treated but told he had months to live. Larry has since passed all his doctors expectations and continues to make music and even released his first solo album, entitled "Rhino's Last Dance."Captain Beyond
