Fifteen- Columbus Club, Appleton Wi. 9/6/95 xfer from VHS Master enhanced live Jeff Ott Crimpshrine

Here is the next show I realized that I had digitized already, when organizing spindles. This one was taped by Jason Ross, and it fell into my hands when he gifted me his collection a few years back. Thanks again, Jason!
With this one, I was able to enhance it quite a bit. It was SUPER dark and I cranked the brightness and exposure, and the neat video plugin did a nice job with reducing all of the noise that ensued.

AFI- 1022 Smith St, Green Bay Wi. 7/15/95 xfer from master VHS Tape Enhanced Live A.F.I. Basement

Here is a really cool one for today, again from some of the stuff that I digitized for the Turn it Around doc. This was a poorly lit basement show, and the original tape was super dark… but since Jason Ross had the awesome old-school giant GE VHS camcorder, the recording was clean enough for me to boost the hell out of brightness and exposure to make it watchable. Thanks Jason!

R.K.L.- VFW, Green Bay Wi. 8/26/94 Audio only xfer from 1st gen soundboard Rich Kids on LSD

I’ve been on a bit of an RKL kick lately. It is fun to hear these shows, but also heartbreaking to listen to Jason. He was so funny- I didn’t know he had kids. Just tragic that he passed away while trying to get clean.

Anyway, this is another recording from that amazing gift that is the Jason Ross archive. I popped it into Izotope and bumped the vocals down a bit, and bumped the bass up a bit. Mix fluctuates for the 1st 5min or so but settles down. Very enjoyable.

Fifteen- Eagles Club, Green Bay Wi 4/30/94 xfer 1st gen soundboard audio tape enhanced! east bay punk

This was a typical board mix- lots of vocals, drums were noticeably higher than the guitar. I was able to take Izotope rx and drop the vocals, boost the guitars/bass and it came out pretty nice! The mix fluctuates but it evens out a few minutes in.

Schlong- Dave King’s Basement, Appleton Wi 10/18/92 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape East Bay Punk Live

Since everyone seemed happy to see the Schlong post yesterday, here is some more Schlong. This one was filmed at a basement show. I feel for the filmer- there is no good place to film, so he/she had to film around people. Not bad considering the circumstances. People in the front sit down after about 10-15min which helps with the view. This is another one that was digitized for the Turn it Around documentary, years ago.
More goodness from Jason Ross’ collection
PS: Check about 20min into the show- that guy filming had a SMALL camera for the time. My Aiwa CV-88 was about twice as big. Imagine lugging that to a show.
