Uncle Tupelo- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo 5/1/94 xfer from master tape + matrix Audio!

This one has a story behind it. I burned all of my vacation in April, following Pavement around california and Arizona. I then get the call from Tony M- Jay decided to leave Uncle Tupelo, and they were playing 4 final shows. I booked my flight for the final 2 shows over the weekend. In fact, I went to the last show, then took a redeye home (no sleep) and went to work the next day. Crazy. Anyway, it was all worth it. The video turned out great as did my DAT soundboard. Audio matrixed (SBD + Michael Pemberton’s audience tape) by KN, and put all together by Jesse Hamm.

Uncle Tupelo- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo 4/30/94 xfer from Hi8 Master w/Soundboard Audio!

Hi Everyone! I checked youtube, and I am really surprised that this full show was not posted yet. Usually any old, popular master of mine is posted by some random youtuber and they get 100k views. 🙂 So this was an interesting time. I had burned all of my vacation time following Pavement around the southwest in early 1994 and was not planning to see UT until they toured California again. Then my good friend Jim Utz calls me and tells me that rumors are flying about a breakup. I called Tony M (back when he was accessible) and he confirmed it. So I flew to see that last 2 shows. I flew in after work on Friday, saw the shows Sat/Sun night, then flew back 1st thing Monday morning to get to work that day. This show turned out great. Everyone was buying me drinks so I got super hammered but you can’t really tell in my camera work. Enjoy!

Uncle Tupelo- Bottleneck, Lawrence KS 10/8/93 xfer from band archive tape

The shower of UT archive shows continues! I am almost sure that this one is a 1st gen. I vaguely recall someone’s name and address being on the cassette J-card. Man, I should have taken pictures of the tapes.

Uncle Tupelo- Thirsty Ear, Left of the Dial 1993 Audio xfer from band archive tape

Many of the Uncle Tupelo archive tapes were unlabeled, or labeled vaguely. UT fans were able to ID many dates for shows that were not labeled at all, but this one remains a mystery. There does not seem to be a radio show called Thirsty Ear or Left of the Dial, but this sounds like an in-studio performance. 2 songs only.
