Jackson Brown - I,m Alive (2 Meter Sessies 18 Juni 1994)

     2 Meter Sessies is een Nederlands muzikaal radio- en televisieprogramma, gepresenteerd door Jan Douwe Kroeske. In deze show wordt sinds 1987 bekende en nieuwe artiesten de mogelijkheid geboden om in een studio-omgeving een inkijk in hun liedjes te geven en deze regelmatig tot een akoestische basis terug te brengen. Gezien het startjaar van de show is 2 Meter Sessies in dit aspect een voorloper op het later populaire tv-programma MTV Unplugged.Op een oude HD kwam ik nog een paar mooie opname,s tegen ,waaronder deze van Jackson Brown.

I'm Alive is the tenth album by American singer/songwriter Jackson Browne, released in 1993 (see 1993 in music). The title track, "I'm Alive", reached #18 on the Album Rock Tracks chart and #28 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Other singles released from the album were "Everywhere I Go" (UK #67 and "Sky Blue and Black".

The Band - The Shape i,m In (Casino Arena Asbury Park NY - July 20th 1976)

    Great perfomance from The Band with:
 Richard Manuel,(April 3, 1943 – March 4, 1986) Rick Danko,(December 29, 1943 – December 10, 1999) Levon Helm,(May 26, 1940 – April 19, 2012) Robbie Robertson en Garth Hudson

"The Shape I'm In" is a song by The Band, first released on their 1970 album Stage Fright. It was written by Robbie Robertson, who did little to disguise the fact that the song's sense of dread and dissolution was about Richard Manuel, the song's principal singer. It became a regular feature in their concert repertoire, appearing on their live albums Rock of Ages, Before the Flood, and The Last Waltz. Author Neil Minturn described the song as "straightforward rock." Along with "The Weight," it is one of the Band's songs most performed by other artists. It has been recorded by Bo Diddley, The Good Brothers, The Mekons, The Pointer Sisters, She & Him, and Marty Stuart.
