Uncle Tupelo- Blue Note, Columbia Mo. 11/13/92 Xfer from Hi8 Master tape!

This was the last show I saw of the week long run in 1992. 5 shows in 6 nights. I was going to try to go to Kansas City the next day, but that would have been a long drive there, then driving through the night with no sleep to make my flight in Chicago. By the time I got to Columbia, I was pretty tired. I went to the “liquor and guns” store made famous by lyrics in “Whiskey Bottle”… and did not even realize it until well after the fact. D’oh! I got to the club late and it was packed. So packed that I could not get close and I could not set up my tripod. I ended up using my tripod as a folded up monopod-like thing. It turned out ok, except some people kept getting in the way of the filming.

Uncle Tupelo- Blue Note, Columbia Mo. 11/13/92 xfer f/ Hi8 Master Video Tape w/ DAT Audio Live

Here is the last UT show from the November of 1992 run that I taped. I was supposed to go to Kansas City the next night and then drive 12 hours straight through the night to catch my plane in Chicago, but my body told me that wasn’t going to happen. I went to the Didjits show with Jim Utz instead.
Anyway, I got to Columbia in the early afternoon and tried to find a liquor store for some beer. I saw this place with the sign “Liquor Guns and Ammo”, so I went in and saw that they only had lousy beer, so I bailed. It didn’t even occur to me until years later the store I was in was probably the same one described in UT’s song “Whiskey Bottle”. Duh.
I conked out before the show and got there a little late. I get in the club and it is PACKED. Like, sold out packed… and I am late and I have no place to film. I had to wedge myself between some people and use my tripod like a monopod- hanging it over the railing on the balcony a bit to get a clear shot. I think it still turned out pretty good. The only downside of that approach was the DAT recording. I could not tend to the DAT so the battery dies during the last song, so you get crappy stock camera audio for that one.

This was one of my favorite shows from Tony’s archive. They must have thought it was good as well- they used a few songs from this for one of their first demo tapes “Live and Otherwise”.
Great mix, and incredible covers.
