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.

Crimpshrine- WFMU, E. Orange NJ 8/25/88 xfer from 1st gen audio cassette East Bay Punk

This was another random pull that I noticed while looking for another tape. I saw that this is already on youtube, but in lesser quality. I got this from George Norton, who taped it off the radio. Thanks George!
This is such a great performance, loved these guys. Big thanks to Pat Duncan and WFMU for bringing little known bands (at the time) to play in studio.

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.

Audio Live Concert

Victims Family- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 8/20/88 xfer from 8mm master enhanced w/Soundboard Audio

I am so happy we could finally get this show synched up. I first saw Victim’s Family in July of 1988 and became a fan pretty much on the spot. This show was the first one I saw after buying the albums, and it is one of those early shows where they had a horn section on certain songs. This is probably my favorite “early” show by them. Soundboard mix is great as well.
One issue is the lighting- it is super dark until about 7:00 in, then stage lights are turned on.
Huge thanks to king bean for the synch. It slips a little out of synch at 14ish min, but realigns shortly after
