Ian Hunter - From the Knees of My Heart (The Crysalis Years 1979-1984) (RE-POST)


Ian Hunter - From the Knees of My Heart (The Crysalis Years 1979-1984) - 2012

from AMG
Ian Hunter's short time at Chrysalis marked one of his great periods so it's little wonder that it's been heavily anthologized over the years. Nevertheless, the 2012 four-disc box From the Knees of My Heart: The Chrysalis Years (1979-1981) is one of the best of the bunch, capturing his three albums for the label -- 1979's You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic, 1980's live set Welcome to the Club, the very new wave 1981 platter Short Back N Sides -- and adding a bunch of rarities, including a live disc that was included as a bonus on an expanded double-disc reissue of You're Never Alone in 2009. Welcome to the Club and Short Back N Sides have also seen expanded reissues over the years and most, but not all, of the bonus cuts are here, along with a few other songs that haven't showed up elsewhere, plus a live set at Pepsi Fest on the fourth disc that hasn't shown up on disc, but has been on home video before. Some of these details are little more than list-keeping for trainspotters because the essential fact is this: the three years Ian Hunter spent at Chrysalis are among his strongest, with him producing two excellent LPs (You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic may be his greatest solo album) and fronting a hell of a band, heard here in their full glory twice. This is the easiest, best way to get all of the major recordings from this brilliant era at once.

Steely Dan - Going Mobile

Steely Dan - Going Mobile - 2013

A band whose most revered recordings were made during a period of hiatus from live performance, it’s easy to forget that Steely Dan’s early years saw them flourish as a fully functional touring act. Here we have a live FM-radio broadcast recording of a typical Dan set from their last tour of the era, in support of the Pretzel Logic LP. As a summation of band’s early years, the setlist is flawless. Highlights include an extended jazz-rock workout on the thenunreleased Your Gold Teeth II and, most enticingly for fans, the still unreleased This All Too Mobile Home, a lost classic that would have fitted perfectly on Pretzel Logic.

01. Intro
02. Bodhisattva
03. The Boston Rag
04. Do It Again
05. Any Major Dude Will Tell You
06. King Of The World
07. Rikki Don't Lose That Number
08. Pretzel Logic
09. Your Gold Teeth II
10. Reelin' In The Years
11. This All Too Mobile Home
