Rancid- Aftershock Festival, Discovery Park, Sacramento Ca. 10/8/21 Live 4K Enhanced w/ DPA 4061 Mic audio

After getting crushed at Suicidal, I shot over to Rancid at the main stage. I thought I was going to miss the beginning of their set, but I got there pretty close to the start. You can really hear how lame the sound is in VIP on this recording- these are the same mics used for Exodus, Anthrax, Misfits etc and they all sound great. This one is messy.
Not trying to bag on the band, but when I was thinking back on the 4 days, I was listing all of the bands I saw off the top of my head and this one did not even register– nothing stood out. They were good, and this is the obvious “greatest hits fest set”, but I just didn’t remember it at all. I had seen them somewhat recently so maybe that was it.

Rancid- The Bash Fest, Papa Murphy’s Park, Sacramento Ca. 6/16/19 Live Lumix ZS70 Punk

Headlining The Bash were Rancid. I saw them a few years back at Riot Fest Denver, during a torrential rainstorm.. but this was the first time in a LONG time that I was able to enjoy a set of theirs. Greatest hits festival set- I am only a casual fan and I knew just about every song.

Rancid- DV8, Seattle Wa 10/11/95 Audio only xfer from low gen cassette East Bay Punk

This one is an audience tape, but it sounds pretty decent so I figured I’d post it. There was a guy in the northwest who taped on DAT back in the 90s, but his recordings were usually a little more bass-heavy. Regardless, sounds like a pro walkman tape at minimum.

Rancid- SCRAP Skate Park, Hoffman Estates IL 10/3/93 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape Live Enhanced Punk

Happy halloween everyone! It looks like I have 7 or 8 more shows to post from the raw files I created for the Turn it Around movie project. Funny story about the project- I mailed about FIFTY DVDs to them.. and they got lost in the mail. I re-did them all and mailed them again! Some postal worker or random Oakland citizen has a lot of east bay punk DVDs now.
This one looks like a big upgrade from what is on the youtubes today. If we could get the masters digitized, we could really clean these (especially the mcgregors shows) properly.

Rancid- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/2/93 xfer from master soundboard tape rebalanced

Here’s the last recording I have from that 5/2/93 show that Radley taped. This one was also a little light on the vocals and guitar so I rebalanced it in Izotope as well. The vocals are pretty high in the mix for the first song, but they get a little buried in the mix from then on, so I bumped them up a bit.
I know that the first song is repeated twice. That is how Radley’s CD was, and one track cuts in while the other fades in. I was going to trim it, but kept them both.

Downfall- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 10/27/89 Audio only soundboard rebalanced Operation Ivy Rancid

Here’s something interesting. Big thanks to Tood Pritchard who came over to the studio last December and pulled out a bunch of cassettes from Jason Ross’ collection that I have not started to list or digitize.
This appears to be Downfall’s first show- some of Lint’s between song banter makes it seem that way. I think this was an opening slot for Bad Religion.

Downfall includes Lint (Tim Armstrong) and Matt Freeman from Rancid and Operation Ivy. Dave Mello plays drums, also from Operation Ivy
