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.

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.
