J Mascis- Mccabe’s Guitar Shop, Santa Monica 5/7/95 xfer from DAT Master

So I was talking to Charlie Passarel and I mentioned that I audiotaped J Mascis on his first solo trek out west. J was clearly nervous- he made a mistake early in the set and ended a song abruptly, in the middle of a lead and looked around to see if anyone noticed. It made me laugh. He settled down and played a killer set. Man, I loved going to McCabes when I lived in L.A.
Oh and PS: I opened up the DAT case to transfer this one today, and there was the ticket stub. So you get that as well.

Dinosaur Jr.- Rose Bowl, Pasadena Ca. 6/27/92 opening for the Cure DAT Master xfer Nakamichi CM300

Well, I told you this post was going to be late…
I wasn’t planning on going to this show since I am not a Cure fan, but my stepson Jeremy really wanted to see the show, so we bought last minute tickets… and they were WAY the hell up there. That’s why this recording, while crisp and clear, has a strange mix. It was recorded from the top lip of the rose bowl grandstands. The best thing about this show is that Dinosaur Jr covered “Just Like Heaven” at a Cure show! I wonder if they asked Robert if it was cool, or if they just launched into it.

Dinosaur Jr.- Espace Ornaro, Paris France 9/24/91 Live FM Soundboard Audio xfer f/ 1st gen cassette

Man, what a stressful day. Here comes a week or so of audio for you. First off, this one just happened to be on the end of one of the KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas DATs, so I went ahead and ran it. The quality isn’t perfectly clean, but it doesn’t appear to be circulated or on youtube. The way that the hosts talk incessantly over everything, this sounds like a Black Session.
I borrowed this 1st gen tape from Kevin Haynes and copied it to DAT in 1995.

Dinosaur Jr.- Club Citta, Kawasaki Japan 6/4/91 DAT Master Quasi Clone Live Full Show

I am starting to post a lot of these DATs and cassettes that I had digitized a long time ago, but never got around to pulling them off the hard drive. That Pavement show yesterday was sitting there for over 10 months. I need interns.
This show was taped by a lady named Saki- she was a huge Uncle Tupelo fan. She flew from Japan to the band’s final shows in 1994. She taped quite a few shows in Japan with her DAT recorder, and then kinda fell off the radar. We don’t know what she is up to nowadays.
Anyway, this one and the Big Star show posting tomorrow appear to be uncirculated so even though it isn’t pristine quality, up it goes. Enjoy.

Dinosaur Jr- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 9/26/89 xfer frmo D6 Master Audio Tape

Thanks to Daniel Hague for getting me to look through Anonymous’ stack of tapes and finding this one. I know Dan is a big fan. This doesn’t sound as good as some of Anonymous’ other recordings with this setup, but Dino Jr always played LOUD and the kennel club was never known for their acoustics.

A funny side note about this show- I was there with my video camera and I was trying to approach Jay so I could get permission to film. I tried to start a conversation, but it was so impossibly awkward and incoherent, I gave up. Damnit, I should have just whipped it out and recorded anyway.
