Beck- Lollapalooza, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine Ca. 8/14/95 Xfer from DAT Master Audience

Back to the Lollapalooza 95 DAT master recordings. Here is the Beck set- he played early in the day- right after Jesus Lizard. This was in between the Mellow Gold (1994) and Odelay (1996) releases, but he does material from the upcoming Odelay album. Pretty cool. People got a little chatty around me during this one.

Jesus Lizard- Lollapalooza, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine Ca. 8/14/95 Xfer from DAT Master Aud

I know a lot of my friends went to the Lolla show in Sacramento, but I was living in Whittier at the time so I went to Irvine. The one upside of going to Irvine was Pavement- they played a “deep cuts” set on the second stage after playing a set on the main stage earlier in the day. It was awesome and totally worth hanging at the second stage for a good part of the day.
Anyway, here is Jesus Lizard’s opening set. I think they opened, it was the first band I taped that day.

Pavement- Lollapalooza, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine Ca. 8/14/95 DAT Master xfer 2nd Stage

I wasn’t planning on posting this one today, but a few people asked me for it and it happened to be on the audio PC’s hard drive, already transferred from DAT. Awesome set- Opens with you’re killing me, includes Maybe Maybe, Box Elder, Forklift and a bunch of stuff off of Slanted and Enchanted. At the time, I thought it was the best show ever.

Elastica- Lolapalooza, Irvine Meadows, Irvine Ca 081495 DAT Master xfer Coresound Mics Alternative

Here’s the last Lollapalooza 95 show on this DAT. I taped more but they were all 2nd stage after this, I think. Anyway, this one is a little bassy, as most coresound recordings are.

Beastie Boys- Lollapalooza, CSDH, Carson Ca. 9/5/94 xfer from DAT Audio Master w/Nakamichi CM300

I did not have time to remix this one, so it will sound a bit raw. Turn up the bass on your stereo a little, haha.
I took my step son to this show. He was 11 year old and weighed about 80lbs. When Green Day and Beastie Boys played, the crowd went apeshit and we were crushed/blocked in with a bunch of other people. We would pick our feet up and move 10-15ft at a time. It was both fun and terrifying. You will hear that the recording suffers a bit from the chaos & me yelling to my stepson(safety was a priority at that point) , but I like it anyway.

Henry Rollins Band- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Back to the DAT project- here is DAT #4. I posted the Nine Inch Nails show a while back, I’ll be posting most of the sets- at least until my DAT batteries conked out.
This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in (I could not get a D6 in for a show in 1989), but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny.
I was super sick at the show, so you can hear me coughing at times.

Living Colour- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

I don’t think I am going to have much time to post today, so it’s now or never. Here are the first 11min of the Living Colour set from Lolla 91. My DAT battery died and I had to switch the the Marantz PMD-430 with 2 nakamaichi CM300 mics.. so I will put those 2 sources together some day. I’m sure they will sound radically different.

Not the greatest recording. I should probably de-“woo” it at some point.

Nine Inch Nails- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amphitheater, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 xfer from DAT Master

Ryan Jonik (Nine Inch Nails Archive website curator) messaged me and let me know that my NIN DAT recording from Lollapalooza was uncirculated. This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in, but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny.
I did not remix this- it has a surprising amount of low end, considering the mic.

Butthole Surfers- Lollapalooza, Shoreline Amp, Mt View Ca. 7/26/91 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Next up on the bill was Butthole Surfers. I had seen videos of their performances, but this was the first time I had ever seen them live. I don’t know if a 2pm start time suited them well- they are better in the dark with strobes, videos, and dancers. Still cool.
