Live Concert Video

Tanya Donnelly- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 11/8/97 xfer from DAT Soundboard Master Belly

I was in the chest o’ DATs last week and this wasn’t what I was looking for, but it caught my eye.
This show is such a funny memory to me- I have been friends with Brian McKenna for 33 years now, and he would always vouch for me when I would talk to the band for taping permission. This time, we kinda steamrolled the poor sound guy. The soundman was all “I don’t know if I should do this” and Brian told him not to worry about it, it will be fine… and we plugged in. See? 25 years later and it was fine.
Tanya’s vocals are so dry in this mix. You usually get some reverb but not on this one. The snare was super high in the raw mix, so I compensated by boosting guitar/bass/vocal and dropping the snare a tiny bit. If you try to drop an instrument more than 1-2db in Izotope, it sounds weird to me.
Anyway, great show from an era that doesn’t seem to have much documentation. There are a grand total of 0 full band Tanya shows from 1997 on the internets.

Audio Live Concert

Barbara Manning- Jugendkulturzentrum Waschtag, Aschaffenburg Germany 11/8/97 xfer from DAT Clone

Holy crap, that is one long venue name. Just FYI, I decided to unlist all of my Youtube videos until the copyright bot heat is off me. You can still access videos from http://www.sacramentomusicarchive.com. I got this in trade- I think the taper is Andreas Claus. Barbara was in Germany A LOT in the late 90s, since her bandmates were there. I never knew there were so many places to play in germany until I saw some of those tour itineraries.

Geraldine Fibbers- TV Munich, Germany 11/6/97 xfer from record company promo VHS master tape

Wow. I snagged this off of Ebay quite a while back and finally got around to digitizing and, it is fantastic! California Tuffy, an interview and Trashman and furs. It sounds so great that it almost seems like it is a lip synch, but I don’t think the studio versions of these songs are this intense. Damn, I wish there was a full set of this.

The Teds- Bean Sprout Studio Demo/Rehearsal Session 11/97 xfer from Band’s DAT master Beatles

Here’s a cool Sacramento band that I didn’t know existed until Jay Knox handed me the DAT of an unreleased studio session last month.
From Jay: “The Teds were formed in 96/97 after watching Backbeat. We decided to play the covers the Beatles covered more or less and not play their songs.”
Chris Tessier: Lead Vox, guitar, Lennon voice
Dale Patterson: Lead Vox, Drums, McCartney voice
Brad MacBride: Bass, distracted by pinball machines
Jay Knox: Lead guitar, backing Vox
