Mudhoney- Sabala’s Portland, OR 12/1/06 xfer from 8mm master video with improved Nakamichi CM300 Aud

Here is an upgrade of one of Craig Babb’s videos I posted a few months ago. It has some great footage but the audio was distorted pretty badly. I saw someone post their recording of the show using nakamichi cm-300 mics and it sounds amazing! I asked Derek Purtell to help me synch this (not easy with 2 analog sources with cuts) and he did a great job as usual.

Mudhoney- Sabala’s Portland Or 12/1/06 xfer from master tape enhanced

A couple years back, Barry Ward sent me a collection of master videotapes from his friend Craig. It took me forever to get to these, but I got these digitized last summer and now I am enhancing and posting them. This video is great but audio on is pretty distorted- I checked the usual places and could not find a good audio recording to match up. Let me know if one exists.

Acid King- Sabala’s, Portland Or 9/30/05 xfer from master tape enhanced Stoner Rock Doom Metal

Here’s another video from Craig Babb’s collection. Audio is distorted, so if anyone has a lead on a cleaner audio source, let me know. Even though they are from SF, Acid King has a pacific northwest connection- the vocalist/guitarist in the band, Lori Steinberg, was married to Dale Crover.

Witch Mountain- Sabala’s, Portland Or. 9/30/05 xfer from master videotape enhanced

When I got the box of tapes from Craig, this is one of the first ones that made me do a serious double-take. I had no idea Witch Mountain had been around for so long. When I saw them at Starlite lounge in 2016, I thought they were a relatively new band. Wow. It looks like Rob took on the lead vocal duties in those early days.

Dixie Witch- Sabala’s, Portland Or. 11/6/04 xfer from master videotape Stoner Rock Texas

Here is another cool video from Craig Babb- he filmed so many heavy stoner rock/doom bands in the very early days of the genre. This one is a 10min clip from a show in Portland in 1994 by Dixie Witch. Audio is slightly distorted but still listenable. This kicks ass.
