This is another one of Todd Pritchard’s requests. The tape did not have a venue, but since this was from a Friday night, it is likely Gilman. from Jason Ross’ collection that he gifted me a few years back.

One nice thing about living in L.A. was the sheer volume of promotional appearances by artists. There were constant in-store performances and special showcases unavailable anywhere else. These usually took place in L.A./Hollywood during my working hours, so I missed out on just about all of them… but this was one in Anaheim (close to home) in the early evening. Richie was in town as a promo for the Troubadours of folk fest at UCLA. I went to the fest and taped, but a lot of it wasn’t great. I do have 1st gen video to transfer one day. He played the instore solo acoustic with no P.A. I was obnoxiously up front in full view with a namamichi CM300 shotgun mic pointing at him. It sounds pretty good, but since there was no P.A., the crowd applause in between songs was so loud that it blew up the recording. I just went ahead and edited the between-song applause out for everyone’s comfort. Trust me, you don’t wanna hear it.

I had a good part of the day yesterday to get through some music projects and I thought I was going to get SO MUCH done… then I started working things across my desk. I got the 45(!) download codes for LPs I bought all done, and 1 audio project that I had already thought was done. That’s it- I got through 8 inches of desk space, and there are about 50 more projects to go. Thanks for your patience. All of you east bay punk and lookout records fans will be happy since the one project that I finished was all of Todd Pritchard’s requests that had been sitting here since December of 2019. Here’s the first- a nice Jawbreaker soundboard that I rebalanced in Izotope. It blows me away that this church was used as a punk venue for such big bands. We had a place in orangevale that did mostly local shows, but nothing along the size of Fugazi and Jawbreaker. They get the mixed dialed a couple of minutes in.
