Avail- Nile Theater, Mesa Az. 7/28/95 xfer from low gen audio tape Tim Barry

Here’s a decent audience recording of Avail right when they started their lookout records run. I decided to post this one because of the unruly crowd – it sounds like there was at least one person who was disrupting the show. Tim had to stop the song/show multiple times because of this guy.
It sounds like this was done with some type of pro walkman, it has that “big hall echo” going.

Foo Fighters- Roxy Theatre, Hollywood Ca. 7/27/95 xfer DAT Master Audio Early My Hero Performance

I saw/taped the Foo Fighters twice over the course of 10 weeks in 1995, and I’ve never seen them since. Nothing against them, I just never felt compelled to go to another show.
The odd thing about this show is that I remember standing somewhere that was as close to the PA Mains as possible, and it still sounds a little distant. It doesn’t sound bad, I am just picky I guess. Oh well, I tried. The show features a very early performance of My Hero- Dave mentions that they wrote it last week. After plowing through some setlists, it looks like this was the 3rd time it was played.

AFI- 1022 Smith St, Green Bay Wi. 7/15/95 xfer from master VHS Tape Enhanced Live A.F.I. Basement

Here is a really cool one for today, again from some of the stuff that I digitized for the Turn it Around doc. This was a poorly lit basement show, and the original tape was super dark… but since Jason Ross had the awesome old-school giant GE VHS camcorder, the recording was clean enough for me to boost the hell out of brightness and exposure to make it watchable. Thanks Jason!

Geraldine Fibbers- Arons Records, Hollywood Ca. 7/8/95 Audio DAT Complete show SBD remixed Live

Here is the full soundboard from the Aron’s show. I posted the video earlier this week, but it cuts in at abour the 10 minute mark. I can’t remember, and I wonder why I didn’t film the entire show. I think I was worried about standing in front of people… which explains why I cut Jessy off on the video rather than filming straight on.
One of the best encores ever- Dragon Lady/The Grand Tour. Damn.

Equipment used: Sony TCD-D7
Soundboard rebalance (increase bass & guitar, decrease drums) in Izotope.

Geraldine Fibbers- Aron’s Records, Hollywood Ca. 7/8/95 xfer from master live videotape w/Soundboard

I don’t think I ever posted or shared this video before. The audio from the camera’s stock audio mic was terrible- totally distorted. I tried to do some shadow correction in premiere but it kinda freaked out, so I merely denoised/degrained the video.
I’ve also had a DAT master soundboard of the show, but the mix was pretty uneven. I was able to rebalance it in izotope to make it listenable.. I pushed it as far as I could without making it sound weird.

Featuring the head and long black hair of Todd Nakamine in the foreground 🙂

Oh, and this is the earliest GF video on youtube… which proves nothing except show how old I am.
