Neil Young- Greek Theater, Los Angeles Ca. 9/22/92 xfer from DAT Master Audio Nakamichi CM300 Solo

Here’s another Neil Young solo show that I taped when I lived down there. What a week- 3 Neil shows during the week (and waking up to work all day the next day), and then Pavement/Mudhoney/Cobain/Sonic Youth on the weekend. Not a bad week at all.
The recording here is okay. Some clapping/chatter

Neil Young- Greek Theater, Los Angeles Ca. 9/21/92 Audio only xfer from DAT Master Nakamichi CM300

I moved to L.A. on the last weekend of August 1992, and hit a bunch of shows in late 92 into 1993. There was so much happening in the area, you could see something every night. My big regret is not digging into the smaller clubs to see what was playing- I only went to Raji’s once, and never went to Jabberjaw or Hell’s Gate. Oh well, hindsight and all that.
Another cool thing was being able to see artists play multiple times- I saw/taped Neil 3x in Sep of 92. They sound pretty decent but the crowd is a bit chatty.

Matthew Sweet- Greek Theater, Los Angeles Ca 8/27/92 DAT Audience Master Nakamichi CM300

We were too late to catch Matthew’s opening set on night 1 of the Indigo Girls’ 2 night run at The Greek, but I made sure to show up early (which meant leaving work/home SUPER early because of L.A. traffic) to catch his set. I was pretty lucky to catch a show from the Girlfriend tour, albeit an opening set.

Indigo Girls- Greek Theater, Los Angeles Ca 8/27/92 DAT Audience Master Nakamichi CM300 Mic

Man, I was busy in the summer of 1992. I was taping shows in northern cal in July, then packed everything up and moved to the L.A. area in early August and already back taping shows a couple weeks later. I wish I still had that much energy.
Like the Robyn Hitchcock show I posted yesterday, this 2nd night sounds better and is a longer/better show.

Indigo Girls- Greek Theater, Los Angeles Ca 8/26/92 xfer DAT Audience Master Nakamichi CM300 Live

Happy Monday everyone. As you can probably tell, I am just plowing through my DATs in order for the weekday audio posts. So far, we are on DAT #26 out of 2,000. Expect these weekday posts to go on forever.
This one happened right around the time I moved to L.A… in fact, this might have been the first show I attended after moving. I was never able to get a really good recording out of the Greek. That place and my Nakmachi mic did not play well together. Oh well. Warts and all, here it is.

Cracker- Greek Theatre, Berkeley Ca. 6/6/92 xfer from 2nd gen audiocassette 20 min euro-trash girl

Some friends and members of the band asked me to dig this one up, so I bumped it up on the priority list. Cracker is opening for Primus here, and someone in the crowd apparently threw something and hit David early in the set. To retaliate, they play the current song (Euro-Trash girl) for over 20min. You can hear the crowd howling in protest about halfway through the song. Classic! David hurls the insults mid-song after he gets hit at about 15:50. MUST LISTEN.

Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers- Greek Theatre, Los Angeles Ca 9/19/91 DAT Master Audience Nak300

About a year before I moved to L.A., I spent a week on vacation there. It was fun- I got to visit American Records HQ (my friend Matt Polish worked there), hit Disneyland and some of the common L.A. attractions. When I checked the Times, there were no good punk/alternative shows coming up at all. This was the one show that looked good to me at the time.
This might have been the first time I used the Sony TCD-D3 and Nakamichi CM300 mic together… and boy was it problematic. I kept losing signal, or losing a channel so I would unplug and plug the mic back in. This is why you hear some parts missing. Sorry about that.
As a side note, people should not bring sports referee-style whistles to an event where you are supposed to listen to music.
