About Me


My name is Paul Simister and I live in Birmingham, in the UK.

I love live albums because I find the performances much more compelling than the over-produced versions created in the recording studio.

  1. Hey, love this site.

    90% of my music collection is live recorded music
    You have done an amazing job .. thank you so much for the effort and time.

    … but I have a question …

    When I throw in Pat Travers name, Lonestar comes out .. I’m a bit puzzled.

    One of my all time favorite concerts – King Biscuit Flower Hour presents The Pat Travers Band

    Thanks again for you work


    1. Thanks for your lovely comment. It’s great to get feedback.

      I tried searching for Pat Travers as well and had the same result. I fear that I might have forgotten him which is a bit strange as I have Go For What You Know in my collection.

      I haven’t heard the King Biscuit Flower Hour album by him but I’ll readily admit that I like the rawness of these radio broadcast turned into albums. With a group released album, there is always the risk of too much cleaning up of the recording. I don’t think it should happen at all but I can understand the desire to take out really bad mistakes but some albums are rife with re-recordings of “live” parts. Thin Lizzy’s Live & Dangerous… I’m looking at you as a prime example. Even though it sounds great, it loses some authenticity.
