Live Lounge 3

2008 two CD set, the third installment in this popular series of compilations that lifts tracks from the popular BBC Radio One show Live Lounge.

Rolling Stones – Voodoo Lounge

Rolling Stones – Voodoo Lounge

  • DVD, rockin roll, vintage

The world’s greatest rock and roll band continues to reach new heights–1994’s phenomenally successful “Voodoo Lounge” tour was the highest grossing of all time. This groundbreaking concert, featuring guest appearances by Bo Diddley and Robert Cray, is a must-have for every fan’s collection. Songs: Not Fade Away, Tumbling Dice, You Got Me Rocking, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, Angie, Sweet Virginia, It’s All Over Now, Stop Breaking Down, Who Do You Love, Miss You, Honky Tonk Women, The Worst, Sympathy for the Devil, Start Me Up, It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash.When the Rolling Stones decided to broadcast one of their stops on 1994’s Voodoo Lounge Tour to the entire world, they probably hoped to give home viewers the authentic feeling of being at the stadium. Well, it worked. For over 90 minutes, you feel like you’re sitting right in the middle of Miami’s cavernous Joe Robbie Stadium. The sound cuts in and out, you can’t understand a word Mick says, the fans’ screams are louder than Keith, Ronnie, and Charlie’s playing, and the only real pleasure is watching close-ups of the aging band’s still-energized antics on a screen. The boys look like they’re having a blast, especially when guest guitarists Robert Cray and Bo Diddley join them for such classics as Robert Johnson’s “Stop Breaking Down,” and “Who Do You Love.” But the audio transfer here continually frustrates and baffles. It best resembles an audience bootleg tape. The Stones may have been too concerned with the show’s visual production value because the real reason to watch the thing, the music, pales in comparison. They’ve got giant snakes breathing fire, screens flashing computer animation, ramps, ledges, suggestive backup singers, and enough costume changes that “Las Vegas Lounge” would have been a more apt tour moniker. If you like the Stones potent, dangerous, and truly inspired, you’ll have to wait for better film representations, such as Gimme Shelter, Cocksucker Blues, and Rock and Roll Circus. If you’re a die-hard, the set list reads like this: “Not Fade Away,” “Tumbling Dice,” “You Got Me Rocking,” “Satisfaction,” “Angie,” “Sweet Virginia,” “It’s All Over Now,” “Stop Breaking Down,” “Who Do You Love,” “Miss You,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “The Worst,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Start Me Up,” “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll,” “Brown Sugar,” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” –-Dave McCoy

Lounge Against The Machine

Lounge Against The Machine

d__k’S DEBUT CD!(2000) d__k’s first CD documents the debut of the legend of lounge, with 16 swingin’ cover…see site for more info.On Lounge Against the Machine, alt-rock hits get the Vegas treatment way before their time. Vocalist Richard Cheese and his piano trio really know how to warp a song. Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerilla Radio” sounds smooth as silk, if incredibly schmaltzy, in the hands of this wayward lounge act. The Dead Kennedys’ “Holiday in Cambodia” gets completely defanged in Cheese’s rendition. And it’s definitely strange to hear the rage drained out of Nirvana’s “Rape Me” and replaced with bland, mindless enthusiasm. The tone of these covers is so far removed from the originals that at times you forget what you’re really listening to. At moments like these, Cheese and the boys sound like some anonymous combo going through the motions. But then you’ll hear the singer let loose with some foul language or croon a harsh line and it sounds downright strange and funny. Lounge Against the Machine can be tiresome at times, but it certainly takes the piss out of these songs. –Fred Cisterna

Armada Lounge 7

Armada Lounge 7

This is Armada Lounge Volume 7. Forty tunes of staggering beauty and significant musical skill – at times poetic, and at times as careless as an island breeze. The compilation’s opener ‘Tomorrow’ from Winter Kills (presented by Josh Gabriel featuring vocalist Meredith Call) is likely one of the best opening songs of recent memory, setting a tone that should have been impossible to top. Despite the unreachable standard, Tenishia’s chill out remix of ‘Point of No Return’ and Zetandel (remixing Armin van Buuren’s ‘Waiting for the Night’) prove to be more than up to the task – delivering follow-up tunes of impeccable quality. Packed with exclusive tunes, there are acoustic versions of classic records, like Marco V & Christian Burns – ‘Frozen’ and the wistful live performance of Cosmic Gate ft. Emma Hewitt – ‘Be Your Sound’. Dutch producer Rodg returns once more with his rendition of ‘Lost at Sea’, and Conjure One graces not one but four songs on the album. The second set features heavyweights like Paul van Dyk, Andy Moor, Gabriel & Dresden, Chicane, and several tunes from Lustral. Classic tunes from highly respected artists and fresh recreations of the year’s biggest records can all be found here. Clearly a labor of love, ‘Armada Lounge Vol. 7’ will surely go down as one of the greatest lounge compilations of our time. This record proves that musicality and vision are still very much alive in 2014, and it reminds US all that the pinnacle of electronic music has still yet to be reached.
