Corrosion of Conformity- The Warfield, San Francisco Ca. 7/28/90 Audio only xfer Sony D6 Master Tape

Here’s a recording from the last time I saw C.O.C. They were playing a huge venue, opening for Soundgarden and Danzig. I got there late and did not recognize many/any? of the songs. I got the last 20min of the set.

Equipment used: Sony WMD6C & ECM909 Mic(I think, may have been Nakamichi CM-300)

Kai Kln- Cattle Club, Sacramento CA 7/22/90 Full Set

Live at the Cattle Club. Video from the collection of Jerry Perry. Gene had quit the band for the umpteenth time before this gig and this was his return show. Scott built a coffin and Gene was inside with his guitar already plugged in. James Telles pranced on-stage all glam-rocked out as the lead singer of their/his new band, My Little Pony and acts like an idiot. Scott pulls out a fake pistol from his makeshift holster and shoots Telles. Telles falls into the audience while Gene starts playing from inside the coffin. He kicks open the lid as the band rips into the tune – a resurrection of sorts.

Short Dogs Grow: I-Beam, San Francisco Ca 7/20/90 Last show ever xfer from master videotape enhanced

As usual, I went to digitize this and found a whole new project to work. Here is SDG’s last show ever. My memories of the night are fuzzy- I remember that the I-Beam was packed and there was no place to tape, so it seems like I planted myself right in front of Carmela on stage because there was no other place to go. I also must have been kicked offstage at some point, as I filmed the end of the show from the back of the club. I also screwed up and unplugged/turned off my external mic so the encores are slient.
I also have a master audience recording of the show. I can’t remember who taped it since I was onstage- maybe Mark Martin? Anyway, the audio tape probably could be synched with the encore, but the tape sounds like it was encoded in dbx and I don’t have a dbx decoder! D’oh.
In summary, it was a wonderful mess. We’ll get the end of the show synched with audio someday.

Beat Farmers- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo. 7/18/90 Multitrack Soundboard Audio xfer from master

About 14 years ago, we were lucky enough to have an opportunity to digitize Doug Morris’ archive. Doug was a DJ at KDHX in St. Louis and also recorded concerts in the 80s/early 90s.
This one is a multitrack soundboard tape from miss nights. Sounds excellent. I have a LOT more of Doug’s stuff sitting on archived DVDs that need to be finished up all these years later. We got the collection and fortunately we were able to share the tapes between a few of us friends to transfer. I got it right at the time that I was caring for my mom, so it made it difficult to get it all done.

Sounds like Doug might have used a 4 track to do this one.
This is an xfer from the master OR 1st gen tape, not sure which

Uncle Tupelo- NPR “Heat”, New Music Seminar Report 7/18/90 xfer from band archive tape

I think this is the super awkward and painful interview where the interviewer did not know the band at all, and asked some of the questions in a faux twang voice, since the band was of the alt-country genre. Man, it must suck to be a musician and put up with this shit.

Mudhoney- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 7/17/90 Xfer from 8mm Master Enhanced

The Kennel would sometimes bring in a psychedelic light show group to project their show behind the band. It was cool, but the band played in near darkness except for the light show. These videos were close to unwatchable before because they were so dark. They are much better now that we can brighten & enhance them.
