Late Show
This was Vassar Clements’ first show with this band, replacing Richard Greene.
despite any previous claims, allsoundz states flatly that there was only one show, not two.
Doug Sahm opened the show and played a full set. Part of that tape survives and will be seeded here soon.

Show notes: This is Vassar’s first gig with OAITW, and Jerry’s first performance at
the Boston Orpheum (of 20). Allsoundz – the taper of the 83303 source – states that
there was only one show (not early and late as previously listed) and that Doug Sahm
was the opening act. Allsoundz also recalled there was possibly a set-break somewhere
but this is not evident from the tapes; it appears the show might have been one long
set with a three-song encore.

Composite notes: For this show, both sources had pros & cons, and it appeared that the
show could benefit from a composite that joined the two together. Allsoundz tape 83303
has the benefit of being complete and with known lineage, but was recorded farther back
resulting in a more distant recording, with a lot of thumping near the mic. And, while
11889 is incomplete and with unknown number of tape generations, it was recorded closer,
delivering a nice aural picture of the concert. The 11889 taper appears to have been
a lot closer to the stage, perhaps with the mic right on the stage, as the between-song
banter from Spud and the boys can be heard clearly. 11889 was chosen for the bulk of the
show, with 83303 providing patches and the final part that was missing from 11889.

Allsoundz states that his tape is mono. It also appears that the 11889 original recording
was mono, as the Wav’s are identical, albeit having been shifted out of phase, probably
from the few generations of re-recording. For both sources, DC-offsets were removed, left
and right channels were manually aligned, then each source was merged to mono for editing.
Both sources were apparently running slow; 83303 between 40 & 50 cents, and 11889 between
75 & 85 cents. Each source was speed-adjusted as best as possible given the difficulties
of dealing with these old tapes. It’s probably not exact, but it’s pretty close…

Lots of small edits were done to soften mic-bumps, attenuate clapping, repair drop-outs,
etc. Small FLAC size due to mono WAV data. Patches from 83303 added as follows: Willow
Garden 3:18 > 3:19, Lonesome L.A. Cowboy 4:29 > Hard Hearted 0:49, crowd end of Love
Please Come Home 2:39 > Lost 0:06, crowd end of Lost 3:38 > Knockin’ on Your Door 0:18,
and crowd end of Knockin’ on Your Door 3:04 > thru to end of the show. Enjoy! (Aug 2014)

Comments: The is the complete radio show, though just the
last few seconds of Going To The Races appears on the tape
before a radio announcement. Before Wild Horses the announcer
says that O&ITW will be “at the Lion’s Share in San Anselmo,
tonight.” He also indicates that the beginning of Going To
the Races, the first song, wasn’t broadcast due to
technical difficulties.

Notes/Comments:
– This is pretty clearly a soundboard, and Grisman does a
station/program id at some point identifying this as from
WBAI’s “Morning Dew” program. Rob (Eaton?) and a DJ speak
at the very end of the segment. WBAI-FM broadcast this
material on 7/31/99. Beyond that, I don’t know if this is
pre- or post-f.m., nor what media might be involved along
the way. It sounds quite good, and this material is lots
of fun!

Thanks to Harry Angus for the source CDs!

The tracking on this is screwball. The FLACs (and therefore the MP3s) are given track numbers that don’t always match up to what is listed here. I tried to fix them, but sometimes the artist names/song titles don’t match up either and after awhile I just gave up. The music is fine though – Mat
