Uncle Tupelo- Paradise Theater, Boston Ma. 2/29/92 xfer from band archive audiotape Neil Young SBD

Here’s another board tape from uncle tupelo’s band archive, and it is a doozy. This is from the run with Teenage Fanclub, at the Paradise in Boston. This one is unique because they close the set with the Gang of Four cover PLUS a Neil Young cover.
Not only that, but I tried to find a flyer for this show online and found this article about the show… written by Craig Finn. Could it be THE craig finn/ Sure seems like it, he was at Boston College at the time.

Uncle Tupelo- Philadelphia, Pa. 2/27/92 Xfer from master or 1st gen tape band archive Soundboard

It’s been a little while since I posted a tupelo show, so here is one from that short tour w/Teenage Fanclub in early 1992. Sounds pretty nice, and they close the set with that killer Gang of Four cover “I Found That Essence Rare”.

Luna- Maxwell’s, Hoboken Nj 2/22/92 DAT Clone xfer 2nd show ever Dean Wareham Galaxie 500

It wasn’t easy getting a post ready for today. The original audio I had prepared would not read from the disc, so I will need to recapture that one. This one was next and Stanley’s drumming dominated the recording, so I rebalanced it… and totally buried the vocals. This is the second rebalance attempt (an hour processing each) and the vocals are still buried but it sounds as good as it is going to get.
I remember getting these in trade from taper Jim Romeo right when they happened and being so excited to hear the new songs.

Thin White Rope- Last US Show, Cattle Club Sacramento 2/7/92 Pt. 1

 

This is probably my best TWR Cattle video. The lighting was way better than any of the others. They were so loud that my Sony ECM909 mic was having issues early in the set. I thought that the problems persisted throughout the set, but they didn’t. I never watched this because I thought the audio was screwed up, but it turned out ok! Watch from part 3 forward if you want to get decent audio. I also have a DAT soundboard of the show but the mix is almost all vocals (because of the volume). Anyway, enjoy. Looking back, I was pretty lucky to be at TWR’s last show in the USA.

This is part 1 only- you can find the rest of the show on Youtube

Equipment Used: Aiwa CV80 Camcorder, Sony ECM909 mic

Thin White Rope- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 2/7/92 DAT Master xfer Soundboard Last US Show Ever

TWR were so loud at this show that the Sony mic that I had velcro’d to my camcorder stopped working properly- I had to replace it. Maybe it had nothing to do with the volume, but it was insanely loud. The board mix was almost completely Drum and Vocal. I really had to push the processing of this one and I think it sounds weird. Hopefully you will like it. I might synch this up with the video at some point. It’s worth a listen just for historical purposes, since it was their last show before the final Euro tour.
Drums drop in the mix at about 12:45 to a reasonable level.

Cramps- Dallas, Tx. 2/5/92 Unknown gen VHS xfer Live full show

Sorry about the quality on this one. I wouldn’t normally post something like this, but it was requested from someone (I won’t name them) and I had no time to pretty anything up today.
Here’s why he requested it:
“I was at that show and tripping hard on acid. I remember it as a fantastic show. I’d like to confirm that.”
So, please report back and let us know.

Robyn Hitchcock & the Egyptians- Trocadero, Philadelphia Pa. 2/2/92 xfer from DAT Clone Live Audio

Here is another Chuck Erb recording that I got way back in 1992, right when I started DAT trading. In fact, I need to check- this may be my first DAT trade. I think this recording sounds better than my GAMH shows that I posted from last week, but I like that 2nd night GAMH set better.
