3. Like Animals
4. Escalator Over the Hill
5. Stay Awake
6. Ginger and David
7. Song to Anything That Moves
8. Eoth Theme

"There's no easy way to describe Escalator over the Hill, one of the most ambitious works in 20th century music and one that seems to sum up much of the creative energy that was loose between 1968 and 1972, when it was conceived, composed, and recorded. Beginning with a collection of Paul Haines's distinctive poems--brief, wittily surreal, sometimes aphoristic or elliptical--Carla Bley set out to arrange them as a continuous musical-theater piece, giving specific characters to them as well as melodies. In the process, she drew on available musical genres from Kurt Weill's theater music to free jazz and rock to create her own style, dispensing pieces among several instrumental groupings, from jazz orchestra to "hotel lobby band" to an electronic "phantom band." Bley then drew on an extraordinary collection of singers and musicians to realize the score, casting Jack Bruce and Linda Ronstadt as the lead voices, with appearances by jazz singers Sheila Jordan and Jeanne Lee. The soloists include Don Cherry, Gato Barbieri, Roswell Rudd, and Charlie Haden, while the fusion-oriented "Jack's traveling band" features Bruce and John McLaughlin. Bley's closing comment in the notes--"Anything not told, wasn't yet known"--is a fitting summary. Escalator's accomplishment is even more remarkable than its ambitions, creating syntheses of music and language that hadn't appeared before (and haven't since), and blazing a trail that few have had the creativity or energy to imagine following. As durable as it is visionary, its first public performances took place on European tours mounted in the late 1990s. --Stuart Broomer"



Sounds fascinating! Disc 2 soon.

Thanks again Tom,
This album is unavailable on CD I believe, and the triple LP is hard to find.

This is a big recommend from Sean O Hagen whom I interviewed about 5 years ago.

My archive system is all whack (see the archiving thread), so I haven't found it yet, but I'm pretty sure I know where it is now. I can upload on Friday.

FLAC or MP3?
(I usually use joint stereo V2 mode, if the MP3 settings matter to you...)

reel (off-air master, 1 7/8 ips) > cassette > wav > Groove Mechanic(dehiss) > wav > Soundforge(speed correction) > wav flac(Cool

The 1968-07-27 show:

I removed Hurdy Gurdy Man as per Dime rules as it was quite obviously the released version. I guess they went all out on those crazy 60's visual effects for this song, strobes, psychedelic colours, camera zooming in & out rapidly. This show exists in the TV archives so hopefully might get rebroaadcast one day. On the plus side I was able to use the removed song as reference for speed correction.

The 1969-07-17 show:

This does not exist in the archives. It was wiped by the BBC sometime in the 70's. This and the reel from which it came could quite possibly be the only existing copy. Time to set it free.

I don't know much about James Taylor but after doing some googling I realise this is pretty early, and could quite possibly be his first UK TV appearance.

It's possible he's playing guitar on "Refractions" but I don't know, maybe a James Taylor aficionado can tell me once they've heard it.

The only song title I was unable to identify was track 12 so I made up a title and called it "Sandman's Comin'". I was able to find all the rest by googling but couldn't find this one at all. Maybe it's an unreleased/unique song?

In track 7, the John Cameron she mentions was the Musical Director for the show. He had a band The John Cameron Quartet. They were probably the house band for the show. During the song, Pan's People danced to it. They were a dance troupe and were regulars on 1970's episodes of Top Of The Pops.

Both shows would have been pre-recorded not broadcast live.
