while this was shared by ‘dandrews’ in august, on dime, i didn’t actually download it until today.  it’s short, but the sound seems very good, and it’s a classic selection.  i also downloaded a longer show (also from 1968) which included an interview – did you know aretha franklin couldn’t read music?  she did it all by ear – but i preferred this one.  i was demuxing this anyway, but (except for the sample) didn’t track this.  enjoy!  and i hope you all had a good christmas & have a happy new year!

comments from video info file:
this is a 1st generation vcr recording of the 26-minute aretha franklin show at berns salonger, stockholm,
and filmed by swedish television.
(note, this is a different performance to the one circulating as an fm audio broadcast, which was recorded
at the show in konserthuset on may 2nd.)
this was taped from a broadcast of the ‘musikbyrån’ tv show in 2000.

please note that there are no index points/track markers on this recording, and no menu either.

classic soul!!!

while i think that you simply cannot go wrong with eddie ‘lockjaw’ davis, ever, i was a bit skeptical about sax, organ, guitar and drums.  well, ok, not very skeptical about the drums and i do like organ music more than i used to.  but no: it’s a corker of a show alright, and ‘plan a’ was quite right: you can’t go wrong etc etc.  sadly these guys are all gone now.  shared on dime by ‘cosmikd’ in march this year.

update:  rather bizarrely, a few minutes after posting this, i was browsing through the jazz postings on past daily, and ran across this same show from a posting that gordon skene put up there back in july.  that site is worth a good browse, regularl.  although mr. skene only seems to post mp3/128 (why?), he’s got a lot of great stuff, particularly (for me) old jazz radio broadcasts from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.  it’s a patreon-funded site, which is an interesting concept (and yes, actually, i do fund a few sites in a small way, including past daily).

not much to say about this:  just good jazz that i sometimes think i could listen to all day.  need more be said, really?  i was sorry not to find any webpage for justin robinson, as i thought he was very good  here, so i added a bio on  shared on dime by ‘elgaucho’ in march 2014.

also in the news, i finally updated the listing of all posts here.  lot of catchup, but a quick mysql query, dump the details into excel and finish the html formatting there… and didn’t even take long.  looking at the list, i realized that this blog has been up 6 years, as of last month, and this makes 275 shows (almost all of which are still available here).

updates nov-2018, by pete:
renamed files from “chohen” to “chohen” & corresponding corrections to filenames in the .ffp checksum
file. added an .md5 checksum file. added this updated info file, including adding instruments to the
line-up and the track times and correcting the line up. the drummer is franck agulhon per yuval cohen’s
announcement in track 3, not jonathan blake as shown in the original info file. blake was with the
group 10-16 may 2012, and agulhon 17-25 may 2012.

this ended up here sort of backwards.  i’ve flagged the occasional show as for sharing here, and feeling like listening to something that i’d be sure to like while demuxing a few more videos, i filtered the list for those shows and picked one at random.  it’s a little gem of a show, with ray brown’s very solid trio and the added spice of three guests.  so of course, i’ve ended up posting this here instead of demuxing.  ‘ladyface57’ shared this on dime back in august 2011.
