request: gianna, aller guten dinge sind drei

allright – it’s a somewhat cheesy title. but then i just listened to some bobby o – and after that nothing seems to be that cheesy anymore.


so – the gianna nannini request has expanded to a trilogy – with a rather spectacular finishing post: a live bootleg! i have been searching for live recordings of la gianna – but never ever came across one (not even in italy). well, there is a good official live record out by her (tutto live) – but it’s already something like 20 years old. so i was unable to obtain a live recording from her aria tour (yes, i insist that this might be the best record she made so far, although by doing some research on her i found out that everybody seems to dislike it), i’ve seen her perform live on that tour, too, and was very much impressed. well, a bootleg of one of her acoustic concerts would certainly be very nice, too. including a pic of the little hot violin player, please. and while we’re at it: his phonenumber, as well.

but for the time being i have been digging in my crates with tapes and came up with a recording capturing her performance on july 13th, 1991 at the jazzfestival montreux. a very tight performance, very rock (yeah, sometimes i am not sure about these guitars – but it was definitly the sound back then) – and the crowd is definitly going for it. but then gianna nannini has a stunning stage personality. and the jazzfestival montreux is very often able to give the concerts a very celebratory note. as a little extra there is a short guest appearance by les frères coulibaly who played after her on that evening – yes, the programming in montreux is sometimes rather, hm, interesting.

the recording (obviously a recording of a radio broadcast, so the quality is pretty good) is ripped from tape as two mp3 files @224. and no, i made no tracklisting – but be not afraid, the essential hits are on it (as long as it has ragazzo del europa on it, which it does, i’m fine). so get that rarity, gianna nannini live at the jazzfestival montreux in 1991 here.

and remember: if you come across another live recording of one of her performances, or his phonenumber, let me know!

and now enjoy gianna’s live-energy!

UPDATE: one just has to wish for it… the ultimate bootleg experience just posted another gianna nannini bootleg. a more recent one from her grazie tour, recorded this summer in lugano, switzerland. get it here!
