Thin White Rope- Vis Club, San Francisco Ca 10/24/86 xfer from unknown gen audiotape soundboard

I hope everyone is staying safe and well during this surreal time.

Since I am one handed now. I used my remaining good one to pull one of my cassette trays off the top of the shelves here. I found all kinds of GOOD stuff. Here is an old soundboard recording of TWR from the Vis in 1986. I just learned today that The Vis was the same building as the Kennel Club in the late 80s/90s, and is now The Independent.

This one sounds pretty damned good. I was able to use Izotope to boost the bass (as much as possible) and boost 1 guitar. I got lucky with the guitar- the program doesn’t always isolate the guitar… both guitars are not perfectly balanced, but there wasn’t much I could do about it.

Show starts with a 1 song soundcheck, then the show.

One last thing- I have around 90 TWR listings on the audio list on the website. I’ll need to get to them all someday

Tragic Mulatto- Mabuhay Gardens, San Francisco Ca 10/24/86 xfer from 1st gen soundboard cassette

This one comes from Radley Hirsch- he gave a copy of his master soundboard tape to Anonymous back in the late 80s. Pretty nice mix, so I didn’t attempt a rebalance.
For the uninitiated, Tragic Mulatto were an art punk band that released a few things on Alternative Tentacles back in the 80s.

Megadeth- Henry J. Kaiser Conv Ctr, Oakland Ca. 10/10/86 xfer from 1st? gen Audiotape

I transferred this one a few weeks ago but I assumed it sounded like hot garbage so I wasn’t going to post. It is not that bad for a 1986 audience tape in a room with poor acoustics.
From the sound of the tape, it sounds like it was mastered by Ricky (flat/no low end but somewhat clear). If so, it is a 1st gen.
