Bush- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer f/FM DAT Master Audio

OK, I am in a hurry today so here is the last 1995 KROQ xmas show I have. Bush from night 2 of the shindig. Enjoy!

Over the next few weeks, you will be getting full sets of all bands who played the KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, directly off of the DAT master tape. Why? Well, audio to video synch wizard king bean asked for a couple of sets from the weekend of shows, and it just made sense to run the entire set of DATs and archive then now…. especially since they were DIC brand (a little taper humor for the nerds out there).
I moved back to Sacramento over Thanksgiving weekend of 1995, and this took place a month afterwards. HUGE thanks to Kevin Haynes for taping this for me, and then sending the DAT masters to me. What a guy.

Wesley Willis- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer FM DAT Master Audio

Since that musicalifornia didn’t work, here’s something else for today. Wesley also played both nights at the KROQ acoustic xmas, and he had settled down into FULL salesman mode at this show. It is about 50% music and 50% sales pitch. Includes the smash hit “rock and roll mcdonalds”

Joan Osborne- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer f/FM DAT Master Audio

Haha, KROQ botched the bio for Joan. They talked about her being from Anchorage ALASKA on night 1, and they announce her as being from Alaska on night 2. She is from Anchorage, Kentucky… that “other” Anchorage. Too funny. You can hear her shout “I am not from Alaska” during the intro on this, her 2nd night of KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas.

I posted her appearance from night 1 over a month ago, and it has a whopping 25 views… lowest other than Bootyquake and Bush. Damn, not much demand for Joan nowadays.

Goo Goo Dolls- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas, Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer f/FM DAT Master Audio

Here’s a killer set by Goo Goo Dolls when they were still pretty heavy. I got to see them, beer in hand, at a surreal company event in front of “it’s a small world” about 10 years ago and that set sounds a lot different than this one! No recordings of that one- I was told that we would face “disciplinary action” if it was recorded. Through work, I also got to see One Direction (and meet them)… but the topper was seeing Michael Franti and Spearhead play a great set in front of the cantina at California Adventure and people from all around the world dancing together. One of the most feel good moments of working at this place for almost 24 years.

Bootyquake- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer FM DAT Master Audio Funkadelic

This is the second time that a band member from the KROQ 1995 shows has commented on a youtube post! Youtuber Mad Max is Me chimes in: “Some of the djs at KROQ saw us at The Viper and we got booked in the middle of both nights(I think it was kevin and bean- ed). I have tons of pics and a friend followed us around filming. Samuel Jackson was there on one of the nights and talked about us on Letterman.”
Reach out to me at shaynestacy@hotmail.com if you want those videos digitized. Backstage footage from that non-stop party would be fun to see… and thanks for the comment!
Bonus: The band does a snippet of “Geo Off Your Ass and Jam” by Funkadelic!
This is a perfect friday post, get up and dance.

Lenny Kravitz- KROQ Almost Acoustic Xmas Universal Amp, Ca 12/18/95 Xfer FM DAT Master Audio Live

Here’s one that some folks might get excited about- Lenny Kravitz’ performance from night 2 of almost acoustic xmas. Unfortunately, there is a cut in the set due a DAT running out of space, then a tape change. You still get 43min, so not too bad.
