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.
