Doc Keyaza Photographer…Doc’s Shots #13! [Sample Gallery Post]

Today Up On Christmachine Audio Reference Music Server :

Time for another Doc Photo Post. As I said before we have so much amazing history to show in photos. This post is only another sampling of the 1000’s of amazing and rare photos I have from the Doctor which he has bestowed upon us! If you see a photo you know already, the doctor had his hands involved in it or at least through his friendship with the great Ross Halfin and other of our generations greatest music photographers. The thing about Doc is that he’s not the the type to say hey that’s my photo, I want credit, to boast an ego. He just let’s the photo circulate and no one knows he took it. The picture speaks for itself. So here I am to publicly post and archive his Art…so people know where these photos are coming from.

So while Doc is on tour right now in on the festival circuit in Europe with “The Monster” Metallica, we can still celebrate his photos and I can thank him here as he hangs from the rafters rigging thousands of pounds of gear to the sky. While the show is going on as he always has, he can be found taking all the photos yet to come. Oi Oi Doc! Respect Bro!

Comment From BZ: It is much heralded amongst Beatles [Collectors] people[sic] for being a version of that first LP that has not been subjected to any processing or equalization. In effect, it is advertised as the “truest” and “purest” vinyl represntation of the initial 14 Beatle songs ever offered in long play form. It has been sourced from a beautiful copy of
the original LP. [Ed Note: Different copy…same quality and pressing]

The Beatles – Yellow Submarine Songtrack (1999) Vinyl Rip > transferred to 24Bit/96kHz [Hi-Rez] Remixed & Re-Mastered & This is the Black Vinyl version not the Yellow Vinyl…Yellow is noisy and this black is quiet. Also this pressing is very “Clinical” Sounding but it may have the best Sounding Sgt. Peppers version anywhere IMO. I noticed there was so much more detail to this track and after a spectral analysis there was a lot more “cool” data to the file and I checked it against every version of Sgt. Peppers I have and I was right. Vinyl purists tend to detest this version because it does not contain the Original
Mixes.\

There are High Hopes That Pono Music Store Versions in the future (I doubt they’ll get anymore than the Digital 24Bits already released and they don’t make it on to this list) or The coming Mono Vinyl Box Set! (Don’t Hold your breath it took a few decades to get the 2009 digital remasters…the Mono’s were the best of the bunch and that is not saying much.) Sozzz 🙁

The Greatest Moments in Rock and Roll History Series #5 – Bo*b D*ylan – D*ylan Goes Electric @ Newport Folk Festival …[Text~Vidz]…

Just one editorial note The Greatest Moments in Rock and Roll History Series, even though numbered is not in any particular order. I would not try to rank such greatness…they all reach the top. 8]

This is what I consider a true moment and it’s not just for rock…if you listen to music this has affected and influenced you and everyone else unknowingly for 50 years (that’s right 5 decades). At the time Dylan was playing the Newport Folk Festival nearly every year in the early 60’s. My parents where there in 65′ when Bob went electric and they also serve as a first hand account.

My mum remembers vividly that people were peeing everywhere in the open…my pops has a much better remembrance of the actual performance. He told me that it was different from the mega concerts we have today. He said when Dylan came on the stage everyone thrust towards the stage and he emphasizes that this kind of thing was very new if not unheard of. The grassroots folk movement at the time was very ideological and many tended to think of Dylan and Baez as carriers of the message of these ideologies. It was also considered if you played an electric guitar at that time that you were “selling out” as part of the corporate establishment. Think about how every generation views selling out. Today kids think that just means that there are no more tickets or downloads left, not an ideology.

So anyway Dylan did not think of himself as being the bearer of the torch for the movement, he was doing anything that he thought felt right at the time for music and the integrity of the art. It just so happened that his lyrics were taken way out of context by the masses at the time. My mom and pops said that when Dylan came out and played “Maggie’s Farm” with an electric guitar…they did not notice large amounts of people booing that they talk about as legend. Pops said they’re was some booing but not a lot…maybe up front, and he continued by saying that it was only after the show that everyone began to re-visit the set and put it in the context of being controversial.

So with that said, it is known as the lynchpin in history when Dylan went electric that everyone looked at live performances in new evolutionary ways. If Dylan it did then….! Think about it, the first counter culture festival was in 1967 at Monterey where the electric culture blew up. Hendrix and The who scared the crap out of everybody with their performances and Dylan had broke the mold a few years earlier at Newport.

So here I have two videos…one the remembrances of two people involved in the concert production talking about how the Dylan gig went down…also there is in that short video the full performance of “Maggie’s Farm” when Dylan walked out on stage with the Butterfield Blues Band and thus the controversy. So this may be the biggest moment in rock history because it came before everything else except Elvis’ pelvis. I think Dylan may have topped Elvis in my opinion with this one, even though he may not have cared or realized it would even be controversial. The second video is the near complete performances of Dylan from 1963 to 1965. I post this video so you can see all of this into context yourself.

I know what people are thinking “roll eyes”, what about The Beatles Invasion and and Elvis. Keep this in mind Elvis at that time was using an acoustic onstage. Second people who were there at the time, considered the Beatles a rebellious corporate “Boy Band” (crazy I know), that was the thinking it was such new territory. Bob was a man of the people and many those people saw it as a betrayal to play electric. When he did that the common man…that is any person, not just anyone with musical talent could get up anywhere and play electric. Bob, such genius and foresight, came out and finished the set with Johnny Cash’s acoustic guitar (Because he only had an electric), closing with “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue”.

It was the beginning of seeing the common man accepted as a vehicle for live electric, where before that it was considered part of either the corporate shill or the blight of the black delta blues musicians. The devils work to some. Racial prejudices were abound in society then, and I’m not talking about at Newport (These were social norms). My parents brought me up to have the same respect for all people…no matter what their race or sexuality. That was the norm in the folk grassroots movement. So I don’t want people to think Newport was a race thing, it was about Bob taking everyone on a trip to Mars when they had not signed up for that.
