In celebration of Woodstock’s 50th anniversary, Rhino Records launched Summer of ’69 – Peace, Love, and Music campaign, which celebrates Woodstock and independent record stores. They’re releasing limited-edition vinyl reissues exclusively at indie shops throughout the Summer. From dreamy-eyed avant-garde folksters to Van The Man to psychedelic pioneers of the jam band universe, the offerings speak to the scene that came into and out of the Woodstock vibe. With so many LPs to dive into — some of which are available on vinyl for the first time in decades — it can be hard to keep track, so here are a few Summer Of ’69 highlights:

The Grateful Dead - Fillmore West, February 28, 1969 for sale

Fillmore West, February 28, 1969

The Grateful Dead


Seemingly, across Deadhead communities, this is by far one of the Dead’s best shows and full of mindboggling performances from the entire band. This second night at Fillmore West includes “(Walk Me Out In The) Morning Dew” and their rendition of Slim Harpo‘s, “I’m a King Bee.” Dick Latvala said “The best and most exciting G.D. show ever is without a doubt 2/28/69- Fillmore West!!!

Buffalo Springfield - self-titled for sale

Buffalo Springfield

Buffalo Springfield


Neil Young and Stephen Stills‘ debut album with Buffalo Springfield features the iconic protest song “For What It’s Worth” even though the song didn’t appear on the original pressing it is included on this stereo breakout from the Buffalo Springfield boxset. In 1998, Stephen Stills lent some chill vocals for Public Enemy‘s “He Got Game” that sampled the hook from “For What It’s Worth “… from protest song to background for Ray Allen’s sweet jump shot in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game,” that’s a helluva journey.

van Morrison ‎– Moondance for sale


Van Morrison


Interesting note from the Discogs Database regarding the original pressing of “Moondance,” On all first pressings a mix of “Into The Mystic” which Van Morrison plays tambourine. This was Van’s preferred mix of the song, but due to a clerical error, all subsequent pressings, except a much later audiophile pressing, use a rejected version omitting the tambourine. He must have played the hell out of that tambourine!

Love - Four Sail for sale

Four Sail



In High Fidelity (2000) Rob Gordon sits behind the counter at Championship Vinyl… emotionally spent from being dumped by Laura. A young lady approaches the counter and asks… “Hey, Do you have soul?” and Rob responds, “that all depends… back row, right next to the blues.” Of course, it’s right next to the blues! We’ve all been there Rob, but some of us didn’t have Love’s “Always See Your Face” as the perfect soundtrack to our misery.

Carl Nielsen

Donald Macleod explores Carl Nielsen’s worldview through his music.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him.

In this episode, Donald Macleod explores how the world around him fed into Nielsen’s music. Excerpts from five of his symphonies reveal some of his most profound thinking on life, while his major choral works Hymnus Amoris and Springtime on Funen – which directly relate to his rural childhood – show a more personal side of his character. Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

Music featured:
Maskarade: Overture
Violin Concerto, Op 33 (Rondo: Allegretto scherzando)
Frihed er det bedste guld
Helios Overture
Afflictus Sum (3 Motets)
The Cockerel’s Dance (Maskarade)
Se dig ud en sommerdag
Chaconne, Op 32
Symphony No 3 (1: Allegro espansivo)
String Quintet in G major (3: Allegretto scherzando)
Springtime on Funen, Op 42
Five Piano Pieces Op 3 (Humoresque: Allegretto giocoso)
Little Suite for Strings (Intermezzo)
6 Songs, Op 10
Symphony No 1 (Allegro orgoglioso)
Hymnus Amoris
Benedictus Dominus (3 Motets)
Jens Vejmand (excerpts)
Suite, Op 45 for piano (Allegretto un pochettino)
Saul and David (Act 4)
String Quartet in F major, Op 44 (1: Allegro non tanto e comodo)
Symphony No 5 (Allegro – Presto – Andante poco tranquillo – Allegro (tempo 1))
Wind Quintet (1: Allegro ben moderato)
Pan and Syrinx, Op 49
Sonata for violin and piano No 2, Op 35 (2: molto adagio)
Symphony No 4 (1: Allegro)

Produced by Johannah Smith for BBC Wales

This year’s edition of the Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival runs from 2 to 7 August with a heavyweight line-up of US and UK players, with emerging names in support and Late Show spots each night. Top US pianist and NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (above centre) opens the festival with his trio of bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Jonathan Blake over two nights (2-3 Aug); closely followed by Brit-jazz stars Gwilym Simcock with bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Asaf Sirkis (5 Aug) and Jason Rebello (top left), with bassist Tim Thornton and drummer Shaney Forbes (6 Aug). Award-winning keyboardist Nikki Yeoh (above right) brings a global flavour to the programme with her Café Oran trio, who pay tribute to the music of French-Algerian composer and pianist Maurice El Medioni, best known as an interpreter of Andalusian, Rai, Sephardic and Arabic music. The band features cellist Shirley Smart and percussionist Demi Sabat Garcia (7 Aug). Names to look out for on the opening slots and late shows include hotly-tipped Scottish talent Fergus McCreadie, London-based Gabriel Latchin, Japanese rising star Eriko Ishihara and Botswana-born Bokani Dyer, all appearing throughout the festival.

In the lead up to these dates the club packs in some big names for the remainder of July with appearances from revered jazz clarinettist Paquito D’Rivera (17-19 July); rising UK sax star Nubya Garcia (20 July); top soul-jazz singer Natalie Williams’ Soul Family (21 July); a week’s residency from drum legend Steve Gadd and his A-list Band (22-27 July); jazz-influenced Malian superstar Salif Keita (26 July) and two nights from British sax don Courtney Pine (30-31 July).

Alongside the top-drawer bookings the club has also announced this year’s Instrument Amnesty which takes place on Saturday 20 July. The hugely successful scheme offers the public the chance to donate unwanted or unused instruments to the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation who will pass them on to young people and support their musical education. Since it started in 2015 the imitative has provided over 350 instruments to the such charities as Play For Progress, Kinetica Bloco and In Place Of War in Manchester, a global organisation that ‘empowers communities in places of conflict using creativity as a tool for positive change’. Those wishing to donate need to complete the pledge form on the club’s website and and drop their dontated item off at the club on 20 July.
