    Re: New Dagger Release

    My copy arrived today. I'm halfways listening. Sound is very good and very clean. No audience at all. One new Ondine's picture in the booklet, albeit out of focus. I'm happy!!!
    Couldn't find this Dagger release in Discogs (yet). It was shipped from Farm House, Lawrenceville, GA.
    I'm in a rush, having dinner in a minute. Hope to give some more details later.

    Re: New Dagger Release

    I have to correct myself. On some songs there is an audience, e.g. Sweet Little Angel.
    Only heard Lonnie Youngblood in the background on I'm A Man and I'll Be Doggone, as he is listed in the credits (as a member of the Lovelights).
    It's funny that Jimi is calling the key in which he is playing in almost every song. In Dec. '65/Jan. '66 one would think
    that the Lovelights performed enough times to have established a fixed arrangement for each number in their repertoire.
    The CD stops with Curtis announcing that they will be right back. Is this some hint that there will be another Dagger sometime soon?

    I'm glad you got yours but wow, I can't believe this made it from Georgia (U.S.) to The Netherlands before I got mine here in the states!! I'm still waiting at this point as I'm sure a lot of people are.

    Still waiting on mine, and I'm one state over from GA. I've bought every Dagger release and this has been the most frustrating to date

    Re: New Dagger Release

    More listening notes:
    Killing Floor: mono, rather lame rhythm guitar and sloppy drums no audience '65
    Last Night: same
    Get Out Of My Life Woman: same (very vague) audience (Carol Shiroki only?)
    Ain't That Peculiar: tambourine
    Mercy, Mercy: tamboutine Ace Hall (falsetto background vocals) girls audience
    I'm A Man: sax + rhythm
    Drivin' South: strong rhythm guitar (Christmas+1) '65
    Baby What You Want Me To Do: narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66
    I'll Be Doggone: w/ sax, mono '65 nice interchanging vocals by Curtis and Jimi
    Sweet Little Angel: narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66
    Let's Go (x3): lame rhythm guitar, narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66
    Travelin' To California: mono with audience '65?
    What I Say: narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66
    Land Of A 1000 Dances: narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66 Ace? on tambourine
    Come On: mono, nice rhythm guitar, '65
    Outtro: narrow stereo with some echo on the right channel, '66

    Possible line up: '65 Jimi, Curtis (guitar and vocals), Ace Hall (background vocals, tambourine), Harry Jensen (bass), George Bragg (drums), Lonny Youngblood (sax on two songs)
    '66 Harry Jensen (guitar), Ace on the bass

    Me thinks that the early photos At George's Club 20 in the booklet are from October when Ditto was in the band, than Jimi went touring with Joey Dee, and after his return found two new players Harry and George (club-owner). That might explain why Jimi is calling out the key in which he plays the songs. Also it may be possible that on Christmas plus one the visitors in the Club came in rather late due to the holidays, because you hear a little more audience after each song as the evening progresses.
    The other photos in the booklet are all from May, June '66, when the line-up of the Squires was completely different.
    Next project, comparing the Dagger CD with all the previous releases as they ware assembled painstakingly by Doug Bell and Nico Bauer.

    Somewhere between a few hundred magazines I have an article with an interview with Ed Chalpin from 10 odd years ago where he mentions that three concerts were recorded. Maybe the 3rd date was Feb. 14, '66, a date mentioned ages ago? If I could find back the magazine ... when I do I'll put up a scan on CTT. I'm afraid this may take some time

    Re: New Dagger Release

    Did some of you living in Europe received their Dagger CD ? I'm still waiting mine (no email yet from EH LLC).

    At least, I've got my LP from Sony Legacy (Record Store Day)

    What a lucky, mine is not digipack...
    I must say that I was expecting less than the record is... Killing Floor, Mercy Mercy (listening remembering the stones, I should say it), Sweet Little Angel, Come On... really really good, and the sound is amazing!!

    Haven't got my copy yet :-/.
    But, it's true that some of the tracks feature a second accomplished rhythm and lead guitar player, must be Harry Jensen. He has a couple of solos (Shotgun and Wooly Bully), but on Sweet Little Angel, Drivin' South and a few others you can heard him doing really sophisticated rhythm work far beyond what Curtis Knight was capable of.

    I was really lucky to be one of the first to receive my copy already. It is truly a very nice CD! The quality compared to what was released in all those years before (I count 50) is really a lot better!!!!!
    I typed many details into the Discogs.com database. Couldn't find the catalog number, though Anybody else?

    "With "Live At George`s Club 20" everyone was hoping to finally hear the live tracks as they were recorded, without Ed Chalpin`s manipulations and in improved sound quality. That hasn`t happened. "

    Oh dear.

    Yeah...it just another mix to throw on the pile with all the other Curtis Knight/Jimi Hendrix releases....
    actually we should've guessed by the fact that it was a Dagger release and not a Legacy release like the last Curtis Knight 'Can't Use My Name' one.

    So we don't know whether Chalpin withheld the raw tapes or whether they are lost forever.

    Not really. Several of the tracks are upgrades in sound, and the fake audience noise and echo is dialled down considerably - I'm happy with that.
