Verbal Abuse- Covered Wagon Saloon, San Francisco 9/11/88 xfer from 1st gen VHS Live Enhanced

I did what I could with this video, but it was SUPER dark to begin with. We were so spolied in northern california- in the late 80’s, Verbal Abuse would open up SO MANY clear and distinct shows and they were constantly playing SF… it got to the point where we took them for granted since they played so much. Along with that, I was a bigger fan of the early hardcore version of the band at the time. Now that the original lineup is back together, I wish I could see the Scotty fronted version again!

Doughboys- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/2/88 Xfer from 1st gen cassette soundboard Audio Only

The Doughboys were one of those bands who should have been bigger than they were. They eventually signed at a major label in 1992, then broke up in 1996.
This was another “hard” mix, meaning that guitar was in one channel and bass/drums/vocals were in the other. I remixed it to boost the bass/vocal track a bit and then did a reverse pan to make it sound a little more normal. Hope you like it. Mix finally settles down about 10 minutes in.
