This upload consists of videos I recorded off of cable TV using two Sony SLHF-900 Super Beta Hi-Fi VCR's & two Mitsubishi U-70 S-VHS Hi-Fi VCR's.
I would tape the entire show (Saturday Night Live, Tonight Show, etc.) and then transfer the music performances to the other VCR for archiving. Some performances may be 1st gen and not tape to tape.
This DVD features a short documentary about the history of the band. Alvaro Fella, Daniele Bianchini and Aldo Gargano talk about the beginnings of "Jumbo's adventure" and the Italian prog rock scene of the early seventies while some excerpts from "DNA" and "Vietato ai minori di 18 anni?" are in the background (the dialogs are in Italian with English subtitles). You can see also many old pictures that can give you an idea of the "halcyon days" of the band. An unplugged version of "La strada porta al fiume", from Jumbo's debut album closes the first part of the DVD.
The second part features some live excerpts from a concert in 1995. Many tracks are taken from the most recent albums ("Folle corsa", "La mia vita", "Bella & finta", "Metropolis" and "Lakota"). Nothing special indeed, although the final track, a long and original version of "Suite per il sig. K." is absolutely worth listen to.
The DVD ends with some short excerpts from a live performance in Paris in 1990…
Twelve years after they released their first Merle Haggard box, The Untamed Hawk, Bear Family delivered the sequel, Hag: The Studio Recordings 1969-1976. This picks up where The Untamed Hawk left off, which is more of a musical dividing point than it initially seems. If The Untamed Hawk caught Haggard as he was reaching full flight, Hag captures him in his prime, as every single he released reached the Country Top Ten – often capturing the number one slot – and as he sometimes crossed over into the pop Top 40. Hag was without a doubt the biggest star in country music but the remarkable thing about his reign at the top was that he never played it safe.
