||THE MISSING MOONLIGHTERS - LIVE / STUDIO CLOSET TAPES
||2-CD: $13.25 (US) - NEW
($11.93 with *discount)
|rock, pop, rockabilly, rhythm & western, western swing, roots, americana: 2-CD set ($17.98 list). All previously unreleased tracks from the band that was led by Bill Kirchen and "moonlighted" from Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen... later to become his backing group. This release presents for the first time many popular mainstays of the live shows as well as some seldom heard, experimental studio recordings. These songs represent the early "Rhythm & Western" sound of the group as well as the later four-man, skinny-tie, rock/pop outfit. These recordings have a live-ness and songwriting that's missing from the two previous releases. Featuring Bill Kirchen, Tony Johnson, Richard Casanova (George Strait), Steve Mackay (Iggy Pop), Steve Fishell (Emmy Lou Harris), Don Kennedy, Rick Higginbotham, Tim Eschliman (Rhythmtown-Jive), Austin de Lone (Eggs Over Easy) with special guests Mark Karan (Ratdog) and James Henry. The live CD includes essential tunes that were staples of the band's live shows but didn't appear on the 2 previously existing releases, like Carl Perkins' "Boppin' the Blues," a few Rockpile numbers and the bands traditional rave-up set-closer, Warren Smith's "Ubangi Stomp." 3 songs from the early "Rhythm & Western" days of the band are included: the Cajun fiddling of "Mississippi Sawyer," "Big Mamou" which featured the 3-man section of fiddle, tenor sax & pedal steel and the sassy "Sittin' On Top Of The World," which adds to that section Bill Kirchen's wild trombone. Live recordings are also from Keystone Palo Alto, The Saddlerack (KFAT Fat-Fry), Keystone Berkeley, and Rohan's Rockpile. The studio CD, on the other hand, brings to light a more experimental side of the band. Three of the tracks were recorded live to 4-track in an afternoon as a pre-production session at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco and when heard by Austin's friend Nick Lowe, led to the arrangements for the recording of the Moonlighter's "Rush Hour" album, which Nick produced in London. Many of the other tracks are song demos of originals by drummer Tony Johnson or bassist Tim Eschliman, and several of those were recorded at Tim and Austin de Lone's at-the-time home studio, the earliest iteration of Globe Studios. Although not all of these recordings were Moonlighter projects per se, they happened to have been recorded by the band members and in some cases led to additions to the band's set lists. Studio recordings are also from Sonoma Recorders and Prairie Sun. Mastered by Fred Catero, Tim Eschliman and Tony Johnson. Packaged in all-recyclable mini-double jacket format.|

|COMMANDER CODY & HIS LOST PLANET AIRMEN
||LIVE FROM DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS
||CD: $11.25 (US) - NEW
($10.12 with *discount)
|rock, rockabilly, rhythm & blues, country: Recorded live at Armadillo World Headquaters in Austin, Texas. Recorded at the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, TX, this 1973 concert captures a young Commander Cody, hearty and energetic, able to traverse rockabilly, Western swing, jump blues, and honky-tonk in a single bound. This quintessential live recording features the classic version of the band, which included guitarist Bill Kirchen (who'd later embark on an impressive solo career). Cody and the boys are at their best here, whether spitting out spirited rockabilly ("Good Rockin' Tonight"), indulging in some hippie/stoner humor ("Down to Seeds & Stems Again Blues"), or even adding a Cajun touch ("Diggy Liggy Lo"). Toward the end of the disc, the band launches into its unofficial theme song, "Too Much Fun," with all the emotional commitment of "The National Anthem," and of course, much more fun. When wading throught the confusing waters of Cody's many live albums from various eras, fans are recommended to begin with this one.|
