Beth Orton- KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Santa Monica Ca. 5/30/97 xfer from master tape f/label

I don’t think labels do this much (if at all) anymore, but back in the 80s/90s, they would give out tapes of special performances from the vaults. I have a bunch of them from Elektra with Old 97s demos along with other bands. It was a cool treat.
This one is from Eddie Jorgensen’s collection. Beth Orton’s performance from MBE back in 1997. I checked youtube and it has not been posted there, which makes me wonder how many of those tapes were given out.
Speaking of KCRW MBE, I have a TON of performances on DAT that I need to get on my PC and posted one day. Most of them are likely uncirculated. When I lived in L.A., my friend Kevin Haynes would tape the sessions off the radio (he was closer to santa monica than I was) and I would clone the DAT. I really need to free up more time to post more of this stuff.

Geraldine Fibbers- KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic Live in Studio 7/6/95 Audio only xfer FM DAT clone

Here’s today’s thing. I was working on a video of one of my all-time favorite bands, The Geraldine Fibbers and I found this DAT along with the other one. Here is a DAT clone of their appearance on KCRW MBE, right around when “Lost Somewhere…” was released. I love GF, especially pre-Nels.

Sebadoh- KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic, Santa Monica Ca. 10/7/94 xfer from DAT clone of master

Here’s another great recording from Kevin Haynes’ unsurfaced collection of recordings. He was a good friend back then- he and Todd Nakamine were my closest friends during my 3 years in Whittier. I hope he is doing well.
I was planning on posting a multicamera video but we found an issue with it so we had to scrap and re-do. I just happened to find this on my hard drive- I digitized it 2 years ago. Lou has some great one-liners in here. Full band in studio.

Luna- KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Santa Monica Ca. 4/3/94 xfer from DAT Master Dean Wareham

I lived in Whitter, Ca from Sep of 1992 through November of 1995. I loved the fact that I could see a bunch of shows in driving distance from my house- I could see some bands play 3x: Hollywood, Long Beach, and San Juan Capistrano or San Diego. It was awesome. One of the downsides to living in Whitter was that I would get spotty reception to the college radio stations. I taped this one myself and it had a bunch of radio static. I was able to de-static most of it without making it sound overprocessed. If I tried to push it more, it sounds odd.
Classic Luna performance on KCRW, before the station started archiving performances online.
