Eric Clapton & Duane Allman (The 1970 Studio Jams)

MusicLoad.Com presents the Eric Clapton & Duane Allman Studio Jams

Here is a stellar never officially released bootleg recording of Eric Clapton and Duane Allman from 1970. The Eric Clapton fan website, Where's Eric, noted the following about this jam:
"Tom Dowd is responsible for introducing Duane Allman and Eric Clapton. In 1970, Dowd was in the middle of recording the Allman Brother's second album, Idlewild South, when Eric's manager (Robert Stigwood) called to tell Tom that Eric would like to bring his new band, Derek and the Dominos, to Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida to record with him.

Tom later recounted the phone call that began it all. Now when the call came I was in the studio with Duane. I said, Hey, that's a hot one, kid! That was Eric Clapton's management talking about him coming here to record. Allman looks at me and goes You mean the guy from Cream? Do you think he'd mind if I just came to watch. I told him, no problem.

Eric and the rest of the Dominos arrived at Criteria Studios in late August. During the first week, most of the studio time was spent jamming and piecing together new songs."

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions - Let Me Get There

MusicLoad.Com presents Hope Sandoval & The Warm Intentions and the music video to the song titled Let Me Get There

Since the late 1980's, Mazzy Star will forever be well known for their cult classic hit song titled Fade Into You. But like Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin, there is nobody named Mazzy Star. The heavenly voice of the group was a beautiful Latina from East Los Angeles named Hope Sandoval. She has always had a special rare mystique.

Below is the lead single from Sandoval's latest and third solo album titled Under The Hunter, from her act now known as Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions. The song also features singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer, Kurt Vile. Enjoy! GC

Rudy Van Gelder - November 2 1924 - August 25 2016 - Shaped the "Blue Note sound"

Recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder

Rudy Van Gelder was one of the most legendary recording engineers in the history of the music industry. He worked on thousands of recording sessions with a wide variety of mainly jazz artists and acts on numerous different labels. He was widely known for his work with Blue Note Records. He passed away on Thursday August 25, 2016 at age 91. In 1946, he began recording in his parent's living room. Several years later in 1953, he was introduced to producer Alfred Lion and that is when things began to really take off. He worked with too many acts to mention in this post, but think of greats like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, just to name a few. But that's just the beginning. Go through a list of much of his work here.

Just below is a short documentary on Rudy Van Gelder followed by an interview that is then followed by a few of the great albums he engineered. Enjoy! GC
