Wayne Kramer (from MC5)- Rhino Records, Westwood Ca. 5/18/95

I know, everyone wants local bands or touring bands playing Cattle Club. This one is my choice. 🙂 This was, without a doubt, the loudest concert I have ever seen in a record store. It gets louder and louder, and you can tell as my mic starts to distort. I forgot I was this close to them while filming. ML Compton- were you working at Rhino at this time? Hour long set in a record store. Awesome.

Wilco- Rhino Records, Los Angeles Ca. 5/13/95 Acoustic Xfer from DAT Master Audiotape

Back in the pre-internet days, getting information about shows(especially smaller ones at non traditional venues) was spotty. I once missed an Uncle Tupelo show while I was following them on tour because I didn’t know!
So on the way out of the Wilco show at the Whiskey the night before, someone handed me a flyer. Wilco were playing Rhino Records the next day- I had no idea! While taping this show, I learned that Wayne Kramer was playing a week later! I went to that, then lost contact with what was happening there. That’s how it was then- you must go regularly or you lose out.
This recording sounds really nice for the equipment used- some people have mistaken it for a soundboard. I just had my head about 6 inches from a speaker on one side, and the band was playing into my other ear.
