Tool- Sacramento Memorial Auditorium, Sacramento 8/26/98 xfer from SVHS Master Tape Enhanced Maynard

Happy Father’s Day! I had planned to post the most Dad rock thing ever today, but I thought Father’s Day was last sunday and posted prematurely. So, looking through all of the stuff to post, what is the most Dad friendly‚Ķ TOOL! Dads love Tool.
This one is special- this was filmed by Gary Shurtleff and another one of the bootleg video guys back then. He then mixed the 2 angles (in Analog!) with a multicam mixer down to VHS. I transferred the tape in SVHS quality and cleaned up the grain in Neat Video. Looks damned good, better than the other versions that have been posted to YT.
Brian, did you put this show on?

Ranchero Brothers- Largo, Los Angeles Ca. 8/1/98 xfer from master tape! Old 97s

Back in the 90s, I used to pull these insane roadtrips to see concerts. I would leave my house at about 2pm, drive right to the venue for the show, hit a motel 6 for a few hours sleep, then drive back home by noon. Round trip to LA in less than 24 hours! This show was one of those times. This was the first time that Ranchero Brothers (Old 97s acoustic side project) played Largo. It was shocking- they rolled out almost all of “fight songs” acoustic before anyone heard it. In fact, my DAT soundboard was sent to the label (Desavia) and they used them as demos for the album! I also shot video from back of the club. Shot with Sony TR81 and stock mic.

Cheap Trick- Raging Waters, San Jose Ca 8/1/98 xfer from master tape Audio Only Live

I just finished up another round of Eric Mcintire’s tapes, and this one was pretty unique. Cheap Trick playing at a water park! Where the hell did they play? Was there a stage? Could you see them from the lazy river? So many questions.
You need to respect a band like Cheap Trick, who is one of the USA’s greatest rock bands. It doesn’t matter where they are playing or what (lesser) band they are opening for, they always rock. I don’t think I have ever heard of them mailing in a show.

PS: This tape was all seized up so I had to unscrew the shell just so the hubs would turn. Thank goodness for the dragon.
