Robyn Hitchcock- Interview and Live Acoustic on CBC Real Time Radio 6/8/96 xfer from 1st gen cassette

Here’s a short one to ease yourself into the 4 day workweek. It was at the end of the Belly tape that Joel Gershon sent me. Unfortunately, it cuts off. It sounds really great, what a bummer. I heard that someone was given Joel’s collection, but I have never seen anything surface since he left.

Audio Live Performance

Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 7/15/92 DAT Master Xfer

I wish I remembered more about this show- it was the 2nd show of a 2 night run, and they only repeated 1 song between the 2 shows. This one must have been added on after the first one sold out, because it clearly sounds better which means a better seat from which to tape. I like this set better- any set with an acapella version of Kung Fu Fighting automatically wins!

Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians- Great American Music Hall, SF 7/14/92 xfer f/ DAT Master Nak Mic

I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but I am back to uploading my DATs in order. Here is D25, Robyn Hitchcock at GAMH. I thought this one sounded awful when I first taped it, but it isn’t that bad. I was bummed because I had expected to be on the floor to tape the show, but that was reserved assigned seating only (I think I am remembering this right). I taped from the balcony which isn’t nearly as good of a location. It sounds fine.

Robyn Hitchcock & the Egyptians- Trocadero, Philadelphia Pa. 2/2/92 xfer from DAT Clone Live Audio

Here is another Chuck Erb recording that I got way back in 1992, right when I started DAT trading. In fact, I need to check- this may be my first DAT trade. I think this recording sounds better than my GAMH shows that I posted from last week, but I like that 2nd night GAMH set better.

Robyn Hitchcock- New George’s, San Rafael Ca. 7/7/90 xfer from 8mm master

So the day after the show at the Crest Theater, I drove over to San Rafael to see Robyn in a much smaller venue. New George’s was packed to the gills, so I was not able to get a great place to film. I sat on a chair side stage and did a handheld job. I have a 1st gen VHS copy of another stationary angle taken straight on that would edit nicely with this one, if anyone wants to give it a try.

Live Concert Video

Robyn Hitchcock- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca. 7/6/90

This was such an exciting show. Robyn was one of the biggest artists at the time to give me the OK to video. It turned out to be a great show, and the video turned out great as well. Robyn even name checks Dennis Yudt toward the end when someone is pounding on the side door at the Crest. Fun fact- Robyn’s rider required that he have a tuned piano on stage with him, something that Brian and Jerry had to make happen at no small expense… and then he never used it. Enjoy!
