Rancid- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/2/93 xfer from master soundboard tape rebalanced

Here’s the last recording I have from that 5/2/93 show that Radley taped. This one was also a little light on the vocals and guitar so I rebalanced it in Izotope as well. The vocals are pretty high in the mix for the first song, but they get a little buried in the mix from then on, so I bumped them up a bit.
I know that the first song is repeated twice. That is how Radley’s CD was, and one track cuts in while the other fades in. I was going to trim it, but kept them both.

Unknown- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/2/93 xfer from master soundboard cassette The Spark?

OK, this one is a but of a mystery. Radley labeled this one as “The Spark” from Gilman on 5/2/93, opening for the Jawbreaker set I posted yesterday. But The Spark is not on the flyer, and when I looked up The Spark on discogs/youtube, they sound nothing like this. It is pretty certain that this recording is from the same show- it has the same matrix sbd/aud sound. If anyone knows who this is, let me know
This is an example of one of those opening bands at Gilman that clears the room- there were so many openers like this. Now that I listen 30 years later, it doesn’t sound that bad and I applaud the diversity that Gilman had… but to my 20 year old punk rock ears, bands like these were awful.

Jawbreaker- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/2/93 xfer from master soundboard tape

Last August, I went to visit Radley (1st full-time Gilman soundman 1987-1996?) at his home in San Francisco. We had a blast talking about music. It was funny, I have diverse musical tastes, but nothing like him. I would want to talk about some type of rock music, and he was throwing on high def audio CD’s of country albums.. which I also enjoy.
While I was there, he brought out a binder full of CD’s of shows he mixed and recorded at Gilman. I think this was a binder of the best ones, as the mix on most of these are better than your average Gilman mix. So, thanks to Radley and I hope you don’t mind me posting some of these on occasion.
This one sounds like it could be a matrix tape- I hear a lot of audience and boomy bass in there. The guitar and vocals were a bit buried so I fixed it up a little in Izotope.
Posting since Jawbreaker is touring, and we got to see them Sunday night.
