Doc Watson and David Grisman, 8-02-98

Two of the most notable players of their instruments.
Doc Watson is one of the best flat picker guitar players
Who has ever lived. And David Grisman might be the most
well known mandolin player around. Put them together
and it’s a special treat. This one didn’t come with a
lot of information just title and venue and date.
Thanks to Chuck for the set list help!

Comments from the original juploader: First ‘Sitting In Limbo’ in nearly a decade.

There were some major problems with clipping and distortion early on during the first set as the levels were set very high on the master. Because of the degree of distortion, I spliced the first 26 seconds of the first track from the previous seeded source. Early on there is some fairly loud close up yelping/noise. I went through and selectively attenuated regions of clipping and also the intermittent yelping and whooping using Soundforge 6, but it still is at times annoyingly loud. First note or two of Shady Grove is clipped.

Word has it that it is also the first Garcia recording by Chuck and Janet Vasseur. It appears that the Neumann model used were 257s. Reviewing the Neumann website I can’t find reference to this microphone number (i see 254s-256s), but these were apparently used for all of the Vasseur’s audience recordings, so i need to update the db.

Portions of this performance are featured in the film “Grateful Dawg”. If you do not have this, GET IT by all means. The emotional kick in the gut you will feel from scene 1 take 1 with Jerry on stage at the Warfield alone is worth the price and will bring it all right back.

–This started as an acoustic Garcia mix. It transformed into a Garcia/Grisman mix. I guess the other acoustic stuff will have to wait for another volume.

OldNeumanntapr Notes-
This was the first and only time that I have seen Doc Watson, and I loved the show. He played some of my favorites, ’Give Me Back My 15 Cents’, Make me Down A Pallet’,’Ready For The Times To Get Better’, and ’Shady Grove’, among others. I was second row center, thanks to my friend Dave who got me the ticket. I drove down to Santa Barbara by myself and met up with Dave at the show, who got there a little late. You can hear me whisper too him, ‘Nice of you to make it’, a few minutes into the show when he arrived. Dave had gone down with his friend Rick to see another show in Los Angeles and was getting a ride back to SLO County with me, as Rick was living in Santa Barbara at the time. I am thankful to Dennis Orr for working his magic on this recording with his wonderful post production skills. I stealth recorded this show with my Nakamichi CM-300 cardioids hidden in my Levi jacket, and the microphones picked up a lot of applause noise which Dennis minimized. I had holes sewn into the bottom of each front pocket on the Levi jacket, and used hollowed-out 35 mm film can lids over the the microphone bodies to keep the weight of the mics from falling through to the pockets. I used short custom-made XLR connectors to connect the mics to my Sony DAT recorder, but this set up necessitated the microphones to be pointing straight up, with only the capsules sticking out of the pockets. Hence, the crowd noise. I had long hair in those days that I used to wear down to cover the capsules with so they were invisible. Because it was a semi quiet acoustic show, the crowd noise (applause), while not excessive, was loud because of the angle of the microphones. (This set up worked best when sitting as close to the PA / stage as possible, because the mics really couldn’t be aimed.) I thought for years that the recording would be forever flawed, because the applause was so loud, but Dennis was able to correct it. I know for a fact that no soundboard of this show exists, (don’t ask me how), so this may be the only recording available from this night.

(2)A video of Friend Of The Devil through the end of the show also exists.

EAC notes: from original uploader I received this show as 2 discs, with the break between The Thrill is Gone and Old Rockin’ Chair. This made no sense to me since you can fit each set onto it’s own discs, so that’s how I have the SHNs numbered. Disc 1 had slight (about 1 second) diginoise at about 2:28 of track 1 when I received it. Extracted, shortened, and seeded by eric walker (
