Uncle Tupelo- Cicero’s, St. Louis Mo. 5/28/90 Audio only Soundboard from band archive

Moving back over to the Uncle Tupelo archive that I digitized about 25 years ago. Here’s my story on that from a previous post:

Back in the early 90s, I was friends with Tony Margherita & Bob Andrews who managed Uncle Tupelo, The Bottle Rockets and many more. I had followed UT around and filmed/audio recorded over 10 shows in the span of a couple of years, including the 2 final shows in St. Louis. Since the band was defunct (and Wilco was not the HUGE band they are today), Tony let my good friend Jim stop by and pick up “a few” cassettes in late 1994. Jim goes to the office and calls me:
J(whispering): Dude, there are like 50 tapes here. Do you have Coffee Creek?
Me: No
J: How about X(some other one)
Me: No. Just grab them all and I will sort them out.
So Jim grabs a box and shoves about 50 tapes in, and takes off. Bob and Tony were like    :-O. Haha! Thanks guys.
I am shocked that these are not online yet.

Thanks to michael Pemberton for the description/setlist below, and the flyer image from the show:
Before I Break (end)/ Graveyard Shift/ Sin City/ Wasn’t Born To Follow/ I Wanna Be Your Dog/ True To Life/ In The Street/ Song To Woody/ I Got Drunk (cut)

Partial soundboard recording.

Billed as an acoustic set, and the existing tape is all acoustic, but several attendees remember that they plugged in for much of the night. Contains the only known performance of Bob Dylan’s “Song to Woody.” Brian Henneman also played a few songs solo (no tape of his set has circulated), and it was at this show that he announced that Chicken Truck had broken up.

David Bowie- Cal Expo Amphitheater, Sacramento Ca 5/23/90 Sony D6/ECM909 TDK MA90 Master Transfer

Here’s my master recording of Bowie from Cal Expo. It is decent quality- not amazing but quite listenable. It had some of that funky Amphitheater High End Phasing that you get sometime when recording in environments like this. I EQ’d to boost the bass a bit and reduce the high end phasing. Hope you enjoy. I think Jerry Perry, Paul Piazza and Chris Macias all mentioned that they were at this show too! Transferred with a Nakamichi Dragon cassette deck – EMU1212M audio capture card – Reaper.

Jonathan Segel- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 5/25/90 Part 1 Camper Van Beethoven

Jonathan opened for Robyn Hitchcock (if my memory and tape list serve me correctly) and it was a great show. Mostly solo stuff from his “storytelling” 2LP set, with a CVB song or two in there for good measure. Taped with the old Aiwa CV80 8mm camcorder and with Sony ECM909 mic velcro’d on the top. Please check out my youtube channel. I have 100’s of videos, most of them multicams and all of them masters (except 2).

Little Guilt Shrine- Guild Theater, Sacramento Ca. 5/18/90 xfer from master audiotape LGS Sony WMD6C

Between the Fishbone set yesterday and this one, I am totally pandering to my Sacramento friends- I hope you enjoy!
This one was also recorded by Anonymous. It was funny, we were both constantly improving our recording techniques. He had the Aiwa, then got a Sony ECM909 mic and it sounded much better. I got a video camera plus an ECM909 mic which recorded better audio than his setup… then he bought the WMD6C in May of 89 so I followed suit in August of 89… and now we are both old with way too much $$ in recording gear.
This one sounds really good- nice and clear.
