Henry Rollins Band- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Back to the DAT project- here is DAT #4. I posted the Nine Inch Nails show a while back, I’ll be posting most of the sets- at least until my DAT batteries conked out.
This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in (I could not get a D6 in for a show in 1989), but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny.
I was super sick at the show, so you can hear me coughing at times.

Living Colour- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

I don’t think I am going to have much time to post today, so it’s now or never. Here are the first 11min of the Living Colour set from Lolla 91. My DAT battery died and I had to switch the the Marantz PMD-430 with 2 nakamaichi CM300 mics.. so I will put those 2 sources together some day. I’m sure they will sound radically different.

Not the greatest recording. I should probably de-“woo” it at some point.

Ice-T and Body Count- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Ice-T was next up, and this set was super memorable. He was billed as Ice-T and at that point, we did not even know he had a metal side project called Body Count. This was my first-ever rap performance so the 1st half was very enlightening. Seriously, it was mind blowing. Then Body Count came on and it was hard to even comprehend what we were seeing. The crowd was going nuts as well. So great, and happy to be one of the lucky ones to be surprised by the performance. Or maybe everyone knew about Body Count and I was clueless- wouldn’t have been the first time.

Butthole Surfers- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Next up on the bill was Butthole Surfers. I had seen videos of their performances, but this was the first time I had ever seen them live. I don’t know if a 2pm start time suited them well- they are better in the dark with strobes, videos, and dancers. Still cool.

Nine Inch Nails- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amphitheater, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 xfer from DAT Master

Ryan Jonik (Nine Inch Nails Archive website curator) messaged me and let me know that my NIN DAT recording from Lollapalooza was uncirculated. This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in, but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny.
I did not remix this- it has a surprising amount of low end, considering the mic.

Vomit Launch- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 7/13/91 DAT Master Audio Soundboard Enhanced

Here is another one from DAT#3. 3 down, 1850 to go! I posted this one a couple years ago, but this one sounds much better- it has been rebalanced with izotope.
This is probably my favorite VL show- it captures the Cattle Club vibe perfectly. Drunk Jerry trying to announce the band but no one has their shit together, Trish begging people not to leave, and lots of funny between song banter. It’s a classic in my book.

The Rosebuds- Cattle Club 7/13/91 Audio Only xfer from DAT Master Enhanced

I posted this show a couple of years back, but that was before I had Izotope so the board mix was not balanced. I was able to make it sound pretty good with the rebalance. Guitars distort for a few seconds at the beginning.
Btw, when I talk about the board mixes not being great, I am not bagging on my good friend and Cattle Club soundman Eric Bianchi. He was responsible to make the room sound good, and if stage volume was high, the board mix was not going to sound great in a club of that size. I am thankful he was so cool and supportive over the years.

Mr. T Experience- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 7/12/91 xfer from DAT Soundboard Master Rebalance MTX

Onward with the DAT transfers. This one is DAT #2- a soundboard recording of Mr. T Experience at Cattle in 1991. I never really gave this show a proper listen because there was very little guitar, bass or drums in the mix. Luckily, Izotope was able to fix the mix and make it listenable. Usually when you adjust a mix this much in Izotope, it starts to sound funny but this one cooperated pretty well.

Groovie Ghoulies- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 7/12/91 Audio only Soundboard xfer from master DAT

Remember when I mentioned that I started transferring all of my DATs, starting with #1 and working my way forward? That was when I posted that D.I. Cattle Club show. Well, I got sidetracked as usual. Here is the other show on DAT #1- a Groovie Ghoulies opening set with the old L.A.-based version of the band. The mix wasn’t perfect, so I did what I could to fix it in Izotope.
