Dale Jacobs


Dale Jacobs Group - Live At Puccini's Singwell SW-0003 (1971)

Must remember not to neglect the blog - so my apologies for the lack of updates.

This post goes out to Gary - I was prompted to remember this little treasure after seeing the cover art posted over at his blog 'El Reza'.

Puccini's in Vancouver was one of those restaurants and clubs that seemed to flourish in the seventies - the culmination of Dale's three year residency there being this superb album. Boy, what I'd give to dine and be witness to these sorts of performances nowadays!

The late Canadian Dale Jacobs blossoms on this live set and shows off his true keyboard dexterity even more so here than on his studio albums. We have true analogue wizardry here, no harsh and sterile 'bad-fusion' but slick, lyrical and beautifully funky instrumentals.

1) Discovery (CBC Radio Olympic Theme)
2) Visions Of Rio
3) Splash
4) Without Reservation
5) What Else
6) It's Only The Perfect Love
7) A Last Look At The Summer

Just wanted to say- many thanks for your offerings. I got all the way back to the Werther album posted 11/06 before I started hitting dead links- so...not bad as far as keeping links alive. I must say that your blog proves that you don't have to post 10 albums a day to keep one coming back. Many thanks- and a big wet smack to you!!!

I wish old links were still ok. This blog is so good. And like people said, even if you don't post a lot you keep us watching since it's really quality. I'm hearing old good music I didn't know about. Thank you a lot for your time I come here since 1 year now. And I love to see a new post.
Thank you so much.
