Radio Interview/Set w/Vin Scelsa, host
Broadcast on WNEW-FM (Rebroadcast 3/24/96)

Tom Waits-vocals, piano
Ralph Ebler-snare, hi-hat

From the text on the front insert:

“This was a show that I recorded with Tom in December of 1976 that was originally broadcast on WNEW during my first sojourn at the station. I played this one-hour rare tape tonight as my contribution to the station’s “From The Archives Weekend.” Tom and I, and drummer Ralph Ebler, taped this at a recording studio in town – Tom at the piano, Ralph on snare drum and hi-hat; it was unrehearsed, unscripted and totally cool! This is the first time the show has been aired in its entirety since the original broadcast almost 20 years ago.” – Vin Scelsa

I’m listing this as an FM recording, because I don’t know for sure that it isn’t; there is no 19 KHz pilot tone on it to identify it as an FM recording.
The original files ran at the wrong speed, and there was a pretty serious channel imbalance. I corrected the pitch to A=440, matched the levels and ran phase correction on the whole program, then resplit the tracks and converted to FLAC.

This show has been posted to TTD one other time, on 10-08-07 by Flick, as a transfer from an 8-track cartridge, which he says was captured in mono due to poor reception, and he did some noise reduction on it due to massive tape hiss, and there were some dropouts and tape damage. It’s also missing the last two songs. The version I’m posting sounds as close to perfect as you are likely to get, and it includes the two extra songs.

note from the taper:

This IS the “We Gonna Get You” master tape! As Joe Ray recalls it; “After Neil’s comment to get me (‘the guy with the microphone’), I held the microphone where it could not be seen until ‘The Loner’ (uncomplete), when I turned the deck off. I was sitting in the 5th row center and the roadies were looking for me from the side of the stage. The pressure was on me,…if I would have been caught I would have been arrested, etc.,… so, I just stopped taping. I put the expensive AKG D-1000-E microphone in my boot.
I lost the $40.00 Sony Portable Cassette Deck and the Microphone Cord by saved the microphone and the tape. I became much more stealthy when recording shows after this incident!”

Review by Brian Murphy:
I picked up this CD on the weekend. — Absolutely amazing. It was recorded in 1988 from concerts with the Chieftains in Ireland and contains most of the stuff from Irish Heartbeat. [It contains a] version of “Moondance” – as an *IRISH JIG*. Yes that’s right. I couldn’t believe it. It sounded just like an ordinary jig until I heard the words. I didn’t think that he could still find anything new in the song, the way he plays it in concert recently, but this just blew me away. Also a version of “Send In the Clowns” in which he actually sings it for real, no clowning around, no long pauses, no nothing. Just Van singing a great song as if he means it. (This track is not from the Chieftains concert, but comes from Ronnie Scott’s club in 1986)

After some debate I’ve decided to only share this in MP3. Per the notes it was originally downloaded as an MP3 and then converted to FLAC but that seems dishonest to me and so I’m just sharing the lossy files.

Old Dutch Masters Archives series:

The ODm-archives series consists of recordings the ODM made over the years.
He sadly passed awy on 17 April 2016. Many of these recordings were just waiting on a harddisk as he was depending on friends to prepare these for upload.
The man was just too busy working and visiting concerts.

Notes from Mat Brewster:

UPDATE: As you can read in the comments Gerbrand has pointed out this has been officially released. As such I’ve removed the link.

As I previously indicated I’ve been going through a folder on an external drive full of shows I’ve previously uploaded and re-uploading any shows with dead links. Every now and again I find a show in that folder that doesn’t seem to have ever been uploaded. I suspect that some of these have simply been lost due to me changing blog sites and hosters over the years. I could not find this particular show anywhere on the blog using various search methods. I did find this post that covers some similar ground but is definitely not this bootleg. When I went to upload it on Amazon I came to find out that I’d previously uploaded it last year (or at least it has the same date, somebody let me know if the download leads to something different).

I don’t know if I posted it and somehow the search terms I’m using aren’t leading me to it. Or if I just simply forgot to post it at all. Or if maybe I posted it and then somebody told me it had been officially released and I deleted the post completely (and if that’s the case somebody let me know again and I’ll remove the links).

If I’ve never posted it before and if its not officially released (and I did poke around for that possiblity) then please do enjoy the show. Its a good one.
