In 1994, I was lucky enough to tape 8 Pavement shows through the soundboard with my DAT recorder. Huge thanks to Scott and Remko for making it happen. This was the first show I did in a 5 show run in April of 1994. I drove from L.A. over to Phoenix on Wednesday, then Hollywood the next night, then 3 sets in San Francisco over the weekend.
Then I flew to the Midwest the next weekend to film Uncle Tupelo’s last shows ever. I would say that was a pretty productive 2 weeks.
Anyway, this one was the weakest mix of the 1994 shows. It starts off with the guitar too low in the mix, then you hear the guitar zooming in and out of the mix for a bit from 6-12 minute mark. By the 15 minute mark, it stabilizes. My rebalance is focused on the set from 15 minutes on- there are short parts where the guitar or bass is WAY too loud before that. FYI.
