Movie Stars- Record Finder Records, San Francisco Ca 11/4/90 xfer from master Audiocassette Red Meat

About a month ago, Michael Montalto found a bunch of cassettes of the release “Head on a Platter”. I had no idea a cassette release even existed and they are not on discogs. Being a huge fan, I begged him to send me one and he did so- free! Thank you!!
I figured I’d do something to show my appreciation. Here is the very first recording I made on the Marantz PMD430. This was one of the best “portable” analog decks made back in the 80s. It was Marantz’ equivalent to the Sony TCD-D5.
The band set up and played on the sidewalk outside of the record store, busker-style. No amplification at all. It was really fun, with pedestrians walking through the band and audience at times. My mic catches a bit of wind, but when I tried to de-wind the tape, all of the low end drops out. It’s better this way.
This was the precursor to the HOAP record release show at slim’s the next week.

Uncle Tupelo- Cat’s Cradle, Chapel Hill NC 11/90 audio only xfer from band archive soundboard

I recall that this tape was cut up across 3 different, completely blank cassettes- no label, no side A/B, etc… so it was really hard to tell what part of the set went where. After doing some forensics with the help of factorybelt.net (comparing to setlists in that time frame), I think I got it.
