Official Blue Rose Bootleg Series - The Blue Rose Rockestra (Hannover, Germany 13.12.2008)

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Live mitgeschnitten bei der Blue Rose Christmas Party in der Blues Garage in Hannover-Isernhagen am 13.12.2008

Eigentlich war wieder eine opulente Box der Christmas Party 2008 wie in den Jahren 2006 und 2007 geplant, doch diverse Probleme ließen dies letztlich scheitern. Zum einen war der Auftritt der Band Of Heathens bereits auf CD erschienen, dann erteilten uns die Bottle Rockets eine Absage, ihren Auftritt zu veröffentlichen, weil sie unzufrieden mit ihrer Show gewesen waren. Blieben also die Soloauftritte von Julian Dawson, Tom Gillam, Hank Shizzoe, Chris Cacavas, Todd Thibaud und Joseph Parsons sowie die Jam-Session mit dem Blue Rose Rockestra. Eine Doppel-CD mit diesen Auftritten wäre nur eine halbherzige Geschichte gewesen, als haben wir uns entschlossen, die Soloauftritte auf die kommenden Blue Rose Nuggets-Ausgaben zu verteilen und das BLUE ROSE ROCKESTRA auf einer neuen Ausgabe der Official Blue Rose Bootleg-Serie zu verewigen.

Wie zur Christmas Party von 2007 trafen sich wieder die Musiker inklusive Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, der die Bottle Rockets verstärken sollte, am Vorabend in einem Restaurant in Hannover zu einem kurzen Briefing, bei dem die Songvorschläge gesichtet und entweder ins Programm genommen oder gestrichen wurden. Am nächsten Vormittag wurde in einer gemeinsamen Runde im Hotel der Ablauf besprochen und am Nachmittag wurden die Songs auf der Bühne der Blues Garage in Isernhagen kurz angespielt. Das war es dann auch schon, weitere Proben gab es nicht. Was sich die Besucher am Abend kaum vorstellen konnten, denn die Coversongs kamen so locker und reibungs- und vor allem fehlerlos rüber, dass man annehmen musste, die Jungs hätten das schon mehrmals zuvor abgespult. Daran erkennt man dann wirkliche Vollblutmusiker, denen die Tonart und die Gitarrengriffe genügen, um Klassiker aus 40 Jahren Rockmusikgeschichte gekonnt zu interpretieren. Julian Dawson war wieder der perfekte "Musical Director" und hatte die Kollegen auf und hinter der Bühne fest im Griff. Artig wurden die Lead Vocals aufgeteilt, und so hatten die 450 Besucher ihre wahre Freude an dieser Jam-Session, die folgende Songs enthielt: "Seven Bridges Road" (Steve Young, Eagles), "Mary Jane's Last Dance" (Tom Petty), "Up On Cripple Creek" (The Band), "Revolution" (Beatles), "Friend Of The Devil" (Grateful Dead), "Wasn't Born To Follow" (Byrds), "Daydream Believer" (Monkees), "Can't Find My Way Home" (Blind Faith), "Willie And The Hand Jive" (Johnny Otis, Eric Clapton), "Bad Moon Rising" (CCR), "I'll Make Love To You Anytime" (JJ Cale), "Das Model" (Kraftwerk), "You Don't Know How It Feels" (Tom Petty), "Spirit In The Sky" (Norman Greenbaum), und "Always On My Mind" (Brenda Lee, Elvis Presley).

Recorded live at the Blue Rose Christmas Party at the Blues Garage in Hannover-Isernnhagen on December 13, 2008

Actually we had planned to release another multiple disc box of the Blue Rose Christmas Party 2008 but due to several problems it didn't work out this time. The set of The Band Of Heathens was already released on CD, just a few weeks ago the Bottle Rockets told us that they won't get us the permission to releasse their (full) set due to a bad performance. What we had left from the party were the solo sets by Julian Dawson, Tom Gillam, Hank Shizzoe, Chris Cacavas, Todd Thibaud and Joseph Parsons plus the session with the Blue Rose Rockestra. A double CD featuring these performances would have been a not so good idea so we decided to put the solo sets on the Blue Rose Nuggets compilations and to release the Rockestra session as another Official Bootleg edition.

Like the year before the musicians - including Eric "Roscoe" Ambel who should join the Bottle Rockets for their set - met at a restaurant in Hannover the night before the show for a short briefing where all the song ideas were discussed and either put on the set list or thrown away. The next day, right after breakfast, they found them again in a round at the hotel for a first rehearsal, another one was done at the venue in the afternoon. That was it, no more rehearsals. Hardly to believe for the crowd when the Rockestra played their set after the Band of Heathens and the Bottle Rockets had finished their performances. The Rockestra sounded like they did this several times before - loose, no mistakes, no breaks. That's how this kind of musicians work - they only need to know the chords to play classic songs of 40 years rock history. Julian Dawson again was the perfect "musical director" and had everything under control - on stage and backstage. The lead vocals were shared by all the musicians and all the 450 people at the Blues Garage had a blast while listening to "Seven Bridges Road" (Steve Young, Eagles), "Mary Jane's Last Dance" (Tom Petty), "Up On Cripple Creek" (The Band), "Revolution" (Beatles), "Friend Of The Devil" (Grateful Dead), "Wasn't Born To Follow" (Byrds), "Daydream Believer" (Monkees), "Can't Find My Way Home" (Blind Faith), "Willie And The Hand Jive" (Johnny Otis, Eric Clapton), "Bad Moon Rising" (CCR), "I'll Make Love To You Anytime" (JJ Cale), "Das Model" (Kraftwerk), "You Don't Know How It Feels" (Tom Petty), "Spirit In The Sky" (Norman Greenbaum), and "Always On My Mind" (Brenda Lee, Elvis Presley).
