Movie Stars- Palms, Davis Ca 1/24/91 xfer f/ master cassette Marantz PMD430 Nak CM300 x2 Red Meat

Here’s another post, mourning the Palms’ closure. Actually, I wouldn’t call it mourning. It is more like when you get a call and your great aunt who you were close to but had not seen in 20 years passed away… I absolutely loved the Davis location, but the Winters spot didn’t do it for me. Still, sad to see it go.

Besides the incredible fairport convention soundboard recordings (thanks again Lawrence), this is the best recording I ever made there. In fact, it is probably my best audio recording of The Movie Stars… ever. Their first (only?) time at The Palms, and they played 2 sets that night, so they pulled out songs that they rarely played.

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: Marantz PMD430(like a Sony TCDD5) and 2 Nakamichi CM300 mics.
Transfer equipment: Nakamichi Dragon and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card

Movie Stars- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca. 3/30/90 Part 1. Direct xfer from master tape!

My favorite movie stars shows were the ones where they played 2 sets in a night, because they would pull out some killer covers along with deep cuts of their own excellent material. Combine that with one of the greatest venues in California, and you have this- one of my favorite shows of theirs.Around 2 hours of fun! Recorded with the old Aiwa CV80 and a Sony ECM909 velcro’d to the top.

This was the first time I saw The Movie Stars, and I became a huge fan right away. They were alt-country/bluegrass before it was popular again. Members: Jill Olson- Bass/vocals; Steve Cornell- Guitar/vocals; Michael Montalto- Guitar; Brad- Accordion. Many members of this band went on to form popular bay area Alt-country band Red Meat.
