Uncle Tupelo- Lafayette’s, Oxford Ms. 10/22/91 Xfer from band archive audio tape

OK, back to the Uncle Tupelo archive. Here’s a nice quality soundboard from around their peak (in my opinion). Nice covers of Cheap Trick and Neil Young for the encore.

Penelope Houston- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca 10/19/91 DAT Master Tape xfer Nakamichi CM300 Avengers

This was a memorable night. Craig Hilmer was in town fromt he midwest. We had traded tapes for years but this was the first time we met face to face. The Bernat brothers came up from San Diego for the occasion as well. We were trying to figure out what to do for the night. I was lobbying to see Penelope at Starry Plough because both the artist and venue are awesome, and the Bernats were trying to persuade Craig to go to Beat Farmers at Slim’s. We decided on Penelope. I had a few too many pints and crashed on Craig’s hotel room floor. I woke up the next day extremely hung over and drove home while the Oakland hills were on fire. Very surreal.
Penelope played 2 sets, almost 2 hours of music and no repeats. Great stuff!

The Wonder Stuff: I-Beam, San Francisco Ca 10/18/91 DAT Audience Master Nakamichi CM300 Miles Hunt

Here’s another show that happened about 30 years ago that I captured on DAT. Strange mix in the club- I was in a pristine spot to record, but guitars sound distant. I was so happy to catch the band on this tour- I loved the Never Loved Elvis album.

Penelope Houston- Palms, Davis Ca. 10/5/91 Audio Only Live xfer from DAT Master Avengers

I am surprised about the lack of discussion around The Palms’ closing/indefinite hiatus announcement. The Davis venue was a magical place, probably my favorite venue ever. You could see renowned artists in an extremely intimate setting. Just drive to davis, get off the freeway, drive toward the 2 palm trees, park in the driveway of their home, and go into the barn. It seemed to bring out the best in the performer, along with respect from the audience.
That’s why I picked this recording for today. Penelope (at times) played songs that were so soft that even low voices would interfere with the performance… but the crowd was so quiet… just amazing.

I’m going to miss The Palms.
