Rush- Oakland Coliseum, Oakland Ca. 1/30/92 Audio Xfer from DAT Clone Soundboard

Others have given nice tributes about Neil Peart, I would not be adding anything new with my opinion.
I bought my first DAT recorder in June of 1991, plus I was recording my own shows on DAT– this put me in some good tape trading company- lots of deadheads who also had killer old tapes of other bands, and the upper echelon of tapers at the time. There were a bunch of shows like these being traded around- it was a lot of fun back then… until the bootleggers started go press up CD’s.

Amazing quality full show soundboard from Roll the Bones tour

Uncle Tupelo- Blue Note, Columbia Mo. 1/25/92 xfer from band archive cassette-DAT Nirvana Cover

I got the last Uncle Tupelo Band Archive DAT back from the repair man, and he was able to salvage some of the shows on it. I will tell you about the saga of DAT# 253 at a later time.
Anyway, this show does not sound very good. The one redeeming quality that it does have, is the only complete performance of the band’s Mashup of Smells Like Teen Spirit/Stepping stone. If you want to hear Uncle Tupelo do Nirvana (kinda), forward to about the 1 hour mark in this show.

The Mighty Strangers- Live in KDVS Studio A, Davis Ca 1/23/92 xfer from 1st gen cassette indie rock

Thanks once again to Mike Siou and Sam Habash for this one. Mike was a KDVS DJ and made a cassette copy off of the master reel, and Sam recently digitized it with his Nakamichi. Mighty Strangers were a Davis band who were active in the early 90s. Dave Thompson on Bass, Rusi Gustafson on drums, Mike Duey on guitar, Eric Janssen on guitar and vocals. They had some stuff released on comps, but I am unsure if they had any proper full length releases.

Kevn Kinney, Peter Buck and Friends- 40 Watt Club, Athens Ga 1/9/92 DAT Master Clone R.E.M. Live

When I first got my DAT decks in 1991/1992, there were maybe 5 people I knew to trade DATs with- a guy in Bend, Or (Dick Bell) with all kinds of cool 60s stuff, a Neil Young DAT trader, the JEMS guys, and Chuck Erb. Chuck taped this one- he was based in Atlanta and he would get inside info about secret R.E.M. happenings. He taped the R.E.M. 40 Watt show from 1992 as well.
Kevn Kinney from Drivin and Cryin and Peter Buck from R.E.M. made an album together (Macdougal Blues) and toured the US for it in 1990. Here is a one-off local show with all kinds of guests.

Penelope Houston- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca 1/4/92 DAT Audience master Nakamichi CM300

One of the downsides of having one of the early portable DAT machines was that they were plagued with issues. Sometimes the rechargeable battery packs would just conk out early in the middle of a set, and other times, the deck would just die completely and I would need to send it back to Sony for repair. This probably happened 5 times over the life of the TCD-D3. So, if you see gaps in DAT recordings from me, you know why.
Anyway, something happened here and I did not get the full set, which is a shame because this show sounds much better than the October 91 show I posted last week. Oh well, happy to have captured the 29 minutes here. Good stuff!
