Marianne Faithfull performs "As Tears Go By" on french TV show "A Tous Vents" on February 8th, 1966.

My World Is Empty Without You - The Supremes - fuTuRo re-fResh . I ghosted the original parts with new bass, strings, horns, drums and stuff, only highlighting what was already on tape whilst trying to bring the old recording back to life again. - Steve Lima

Another great heartfelt song written and produced by Holland/Dozier/Holland gave The Four Tops this 1967 hit. I always believed every word single word that lead vocalist Levi Stubbs ever sang, especially on the passionate, soulful vocal here. Luckily I could isolate James Jameson's, iconic bass line so I could process it to sit nicely with my augmented drums... it's a killer part from my favorite ever bass player and rightly well to the fore here.

The Alan Parsons Symphonic Project "Games People Play" (Live in Colombia)​

On the evening of August 31st, 2013, a large crowd gathered at Parque Pies Descalzos in Medellín, Colombia. When Alan Parsons appeared on stage, along with the Medellín Philharmonic Orchestra and his band the audience went wild. This is an audio visual document of that incredible evening.

The Alan Parsons Symphonic Project "Games People Play" (Live in Colombia)
That's a first.

First tour - APP never did tours.

First Parsons appearance - Parsons was a producer, not a musician. Or at least, not a professional musician. He ARRANGED the group; he got writers and composers together. The albums were all themed. That was his vision.

What they're doing there, I have no clue. Guess he decided to squeeze a little more out of it, after all these years.

Standing in the Shadows of Love/The Four Tops - fuTuRo re-fResh​

Originally released in 1966, this is my re-fResh of this great Holland/Dozier/Holland classic by the mighty Four Tops.
I always loved Levi Stubbs voice who always delivered with such emotion as if he was permanently on the edge of tears.
Finding a solo track of the original bass part, by the peerless James Jameson, really helped me to bring out the bottom end and sound contemporary again.
As always, my greatest love and respect to all of those talented people who worked on the original.

A little known fact is the bass player is James Jamerson backing the Four Tops. You can catch glimpses of him in the background @18s mare\k.

James Lee Jamerson (January 29, 1936 – August 2, 1983)[2]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Jamerson#cite_note-birth-note-4 was an American bass player. He was the uncredited bassist on most of the Motown Records hits in the 1960s and early 1970s (Motown did not list session musician credits on their releases until 1971), and is now regarded as one of the most influential bass players in modern music history. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. As a session musician he played on twenty-three Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits, as well as fifty-six R&B number-one hits.

In its special issue "The 100 Greatest Bass Players" in 2017, Bass Player magazine ranked Jamerson number one and called him the most important and influential bass guitarist.[3] In 2020, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Jamerson number one in its list of the 50 greatest bassists of all time.[4]

Taylor Swift & Mick Jagger - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (Live on The 1989 World Tour)​

Just to clarify (because there's some confused people in this comment section), this concert DID NOT take place in 1989!"The 1989 World Tour" is simply the NAME OF THE TOUR, not the year it happened. It is very clearly stated in the description that this performance happened in 2015.
