Final Summation- CBGB, NYC 5/16/06 Xfer from DV master

Jordan Wolfe stopped by today and dropped off a BIG box of tapes. There is a lot of stuff you will want to see, but this is the one that he wanted to post first. FS at CBGB!
I will let Jordan tell the story(and edit the post here), but he told me that they *really* wanted to play CBGB before it closed. A few months before it was scheduled to shut down, they received a call to open a show. So they did what any reasonable band would do- they drove from California to NYC to play the show!
Transferred from Jordan’s DV master. Audio is distorted, but you get the idea.

Soul Asylum- CBGB, NYC 12/8/88 Audio Only xfer from 1st gen cassette tape

Here’s a post for John Moulton, Channing Lewis, Michael Crow, and Jersey Joe. Everyone is trying to figure out who the guest is playing the strat in this picture. My guess is Ira Kaplan from Yo La Tengo, but Dave calls out a special guest that is not intelligible. but is definitely not Ira. Can anyone solve the mystery of the mystery Strat guest?
I’ll be posting 12/7/88 tomorrow, lesser quality than this one.

Soul Asylum- CBGB, NYC 12/7/88 Audio Only xfer from 1st gen cassette tape

Soul Asylum played 2 nights at CBGB in December of 1988. This one doesn’t sound quite as good as the 12/8/88 show, but I mixed out as much distortion as I could. Again, this is for John Moulton, Channing Lewis, Michael Crow, and Jersey Joe. Everyone is trying to figure out who the guest is playing the strat in this picture. My guess is Ira Kaplan from Yo La Tengo, but Dave calls out a special guest that is not intelligible. but is definitely not Ira. Can anyone solve the mystery of the mystery Strat guest?
The pic is likely from 12/8/88, but I did not listen to 12/7 closely enough to hear if there are guests on this one as well.
