From the original uploader:
I’ve seen this recording listed on people’s internet lists for years, all, apparently, copies from an edited 60 minute listening copy of the master I made years ago. Since both Levon and Rick’s estate are trade friendly, I decided it was time to post the whole show here.

In early 1983, Helm and Danko did this tour as an acoustic duet. Rick is heard on the guitar and vocals, while Levon covers the mandolin, harmonica and vocals.

Recorded live on 28 January 1983 at Starry Night, Portland, Oregon, using a soundboard feed to a Nakamichi 480 cassette deck. Tom Robinson was at the board. The left channel held the vocals and harmonica, while the right channel held the guitar and mandolin. The tape was recorded somewhat hot, causing some distortion.

In April 2009 I transferred the master tape to 24bit/48000hz PCM. In May I remastered that transfer to cleanup tape noise and clicks, to minimize the distortion, and to remix the channels. The results bring home a steller performance by these two long-time members of The Band.

I’ve included some simple artwork for a CD label and cover. The front photo is from the show and is the work of Fred Carneau.

Comments from the original uploader:
my 3rd JGB show in attendance – at the time i still knew i was lucky as hell to catch this show !!MISSISSIPPI MOON!!!.
Strong vocal performance throughout the show – especially powerful Forever Young…

Outstanding recording with one major and a few minor glitches –
d1t01 – static @ 07:05 – left as is.
d1t02 – static @ 00:42, 03:49 repaired.
d1t07 – static pop @01:46 repaired.
d2t01 – Lt channel static @ 00:04 repaired.
d2t04 – CUTS OFF at the end…
Clapping (in time) by either Gloria or Jaclyn can be heard throughout.

Thanks to Harry A. for the seeds.

The text file is dated differently that the information in the actual text file. A little research indicates no one is quite sure which date is correct (if any of them) but most people lean toward the 1968 date.

Great disc! The sound quality is exceptional IMO, it almost sounds like it was recorded in a studio setup. The actual lineup of musicians is unclear at this
time, but there is obviously at least Jerry, percussion, & bass throughout with another guitarist in the mix on a few tracks.

Known Flaws:

A high pitched tone which was present on my CDR copy at roughly 0:12 – 0:23 of track 01 was edited out using EAC’s wave editing function.
A 1-second pause at about 14:19-14:20 on the master dt06 was edited out also using EAC.

Much thanks to Morgan Evans for putting this gem into my hands!

From the Original Uploader:
As we had a nice BBQ last Friday, with a glass (or two) of beer and wine, we listened to this very good compilation,
which has never left our car after getting it. So better make an extra copy! 😉
This compilation is made by Alan E.
See the artwork on John Donne to read his story: The songs on these discs are the songs that ëlift me right upí.
We donít know from which shows these tracks are, would be great if anyone can help with that.

From Mat: This is a really nice compilations, unfortunately the original uploader didn’t include any source info at all. If anyone can figure out where these songs come from please let me know. And of course if any of this is officially released please let me know that too.

Here is the ninth and final upload in a run of shows from Spot on the current tour. the eagled eyed amongst you will have noticed that I skipped a show, Spot did attend but there was an equipment failure that caused him to use other gear. He is currently tweaking it but unless it comes up to standard it will not get released. I am aware that others recorded the show so hopefully they will fill the gap.
Placing Spots recordings on here first has worked quite, I’m encouraged by the kind remarks and thanks as is Spot so probably future tours will be posted to the world first here. So enjoy !!

Spot and I thank you for the fine comments and thanks.
We have no issue with them being placed elsewhere if we are credited and
would prefer not to see remixes, but thats up to you.

This is a listenable aud of what appears to have been a tough

were made less harsh with Sound Forge Studio 6.0.
