Operation Ivy- Cotati Cabaret, Cotati Ca 8/30/88 xfer from 1st gen Soundboard cassette remixed

Here’s another one that Radley dubbed on cassette for us back in the 80s. The mix on this one was lacking bass, guitar and drums so I did some work in Izotope on it. The first 4min has the snare WAY too loud, then it drops out of the mix. So stick with it- good show.

Rebalance in Izotope 8: +3 bass, +5 drums, +6 guitar.

Uncle Tupelo- Blue Note, Columbia Mo 8/22/88 xfer from band archive audio tape Soundboard

This was one of my favorite shows from Tony’s archive. They must have thought it was good as well- they used a few songs from this for one of their first demo tapes “Live and Otherwise”.
Great mix, and incredible covers.

Here is the “famous” TWR show where Guy is naked throughout the performance. I have increased brightness and exposure & de-noised with Adobe Premiere Elements/Neat Video. Thanks to Robert Toren for loaning me the master tape to transfer, and for his excellent camera work! Well done!

Live Concert Video

Slayer- Backstage @ The Stone, San Francisco Ca. 8/12/88

Man, this one is hard to watch. I have only lost 1 of my master tapes and it was this one. If anyone happens to see an 8mm videotape with This, Dehumanizers from Danceteria in sac, and Flower Leperds from Gilman (all in August of 1988), please let me know. REWARD OFFERED. This fair quality/generated footage exists because Jesse Davis was kind enough to dig it out of a box of old VHS tapes he traded for, years ago. Thank you!

Anyway, Matt Polish was friends with the band and we had hung out with/partied with/chauffeured the band many times so hanging backstage was common… but this was the first time I had my NEW video camera, so we were all screwing around with it backstage. I was planning on filming from the stage, but KERRY knew I was a tape trader and told his security to not let me film. GRRR
