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)

Comment
* with Peter Rowan

 

Hey, I’m back. We had a great time in Europe, but I am oh so glad to be home. I’ve started uploading shows again, but I’ll likely be a bit slow about it for a bit as we recover from jetlag, and make all the adjustments of being here.

I’ve posted Donna the Buffalo before, so I won’t say much about them, except that if you have never heard them before, give them a try. They really are quite brilliant, and this is a fun show featuring bluegrass stalwart Peter Rowan.

Comment
w/ Peter Rowan, Norman Blake & Roy Huskey Jr.

A very cool show from 14 years ago. Steve with a great, great back up band playing his songs, and some nice covers. Sound is real good, though audiophiles need not apply with the low quality mp3.
