Son Volt- Slim's, San Francisco Ca 12/8/95 xfer from Master DAT Soundboard Rebalanced

OK, I lied yesterday. I have 2 more Slim’s posts. Here’s the first one.

My memory is fuzzy on this show. I can’t remember how I made it happen, but I did get permission to record this show through the board. I was almost always told “no” by SV. I think it was because Slim’s had a nice sound system.
One funny point about this show- SV’s notoriously grumpy (to me at least) soundman back then, Gary Scheppers, told me to squeeze behind him to plug into the board. He is a big guy, and I was deceptively big back then. We both got wedged in between the back wall of the booth and soundboard. flailing around trying to get unstuck. HAHA, it was funny. He moved to let me in after that.
I was plugged into the output of the cassette deck, which is why you hear the cut at 45min. It was for the tape flip.
