Uncle Tupelo were from Belleville, Il, so the closest major city was St. Louis. They played many venues around town in the early days, but Cicero’s was their home base. Cicero’s was a legendary basement bar/venue below an italian restaurant. You’ll see a good chunk of classic UT shows coming from here.
Setlist (courtesy of the great factorybelt dot net website:
Otherside/ Sin City/ Graveyard Shift/ D.Boon/ Flatness/ Cocaine Blues/ Outdone/ Screen Door/ So Called Friend/ Baby, Please Don’t Go/ Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door/ Train/ Whiskey Bottle/ Fortunate Son/ Factory Belt/ Mercedes Benz/ No Matter What/ That Year/ Life Worth Livin’/ There Was A Time/ Mannish Boy (sort of)/ A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall/ Gimme, Gimme, Gimme

Recorded by: Tony Marghertia(?)
Transferred by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: 1994 DAT transfer- Playback with consumer Aiwa belt drive deck (big regret)- Sony DTC690 using monster audio cables.
Equipment used: 2019 DAT to WAV transfer: Sony PCM-R500 — Audiophile 2496 card — WAV
Transfer Lineage: Band Archive Tape – My DAT (90 meter DAT in 32khz- big regret) – You

PS: I know that the DAT sleeve says 10/13/87, but the band did not have that many songs in 87, so the cassette must have been labeled with the wrong year.
