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.

Transfer: SHN & FLAC > TLH > WavMerge > Wavelab > CD-Wave > TLH > FLAC 1644 tagged.

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)

one of Joni Mithell’s all star bands drops in to Western Mass. for a delightful Tuesday evening show. this recording has some problems and a couple of interruptions, missing a little bit but it’s mostly here and all from my buddy’s master tapes. this tape all comes out to just under 102 minutes, it’s pretty listenable quality and a very nice concert. I have a couple more of of these shows in audience recordings but this is the only one with known lineage. it’s not a real
clear “high-fi” recording, but close enough up so it’s a you’re pretty much there production. I’m far from the biggest fan of Joni Mitchell music, but maybe my favorite of hers is this band, which toured just this one year, and her tour with the LA Express of soon before this one. this has to be the best band Joni’s ever toured with (not the only good one) and I’m happy to share this show with dime for maybe the 1st time, almost certainly the 1st time from this recording.
if anyone has a better quality/more complete recording of this show and/or other later 70’s Joni shows. I’m not very familiar with alot of her songs, she does several good ones in here. my favorites are the first and last
tracks in this recording. I think there may be another track or two after Woodstock that wasn’t recorded (maybe before), probably no more than 10 min. or so missing in this recording from the concert. I’ve always liked
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s versions of Woodstock, Joni’s are very different but I like hers too (including this one).

do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
there’s no baloney in this Joni.

There is also another taper’s version, with wild speed flucuations.

(The two opening Georgie Fame tracks are from a different inferior source. For this reason the Fame tracks are included at the end of disk two as bonus tracks, but they do flow and can be burned at the beginning of disk one if you prefer to have the full show in a linear format)

In celebration of the first summer holiday in the States (Memorial Day), and of the Man’s forthcoming East Coast tourette, we are proud to announce Vol. 6 in the Rare 90s series: the complete Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts – Mansfield, MA – 28 Aug 1990 show.

This show comes from a DAT transfer; it’s an “eighties” sort of setlist, with an Irish intermezzo and the Louis Prima ending. Even though the band members had performed together before in Europe, Mansfield was only the second show of the stateside tour after a month off, so one treat is listening for the false starts and other minor problems. But otherwise, it’s pretty much a “big boulders” show: “wham” Jackie Wilson, “wham” Game, “wham” Help Me, “wham” Muse, “wham” Summertime, “wham” Caravan, “wham” Garden, with Just Like A Woman (“keep it slow”) thrown in for good measure. It all happens in just under 2 hours.

The full setlist follows; please note that there are a (very) few sonic imperfections, and the two opening Georgie Fame tracks are from a different inferior source. For this reason the Fame tracks are included at the end of disk two as bonus tracks, but they do flow and can be burned at the beginning of disk one if you prefer to have the full show in a linear format.

Our thanks to Mr. Indefatigable for sourcing the show and to HB for the artwork
