Some track transitions are not entirely seamless
First song is missing
D1 T1: song clipped, fades and fuzzes in...
D2 T2: [1:37 - 1:39] tape cuts, first line slightly clipped
SOUND: Well, this is raw, I'll give it that. Loud, too. Vocals are clear enough and where they should be, but I think this
tape was out in the sun too long. Guitars are raunchy (which alone may not be a bad thing). Somewhat crispy, this almost
sounds worse the louder you try to play it thanks to such a sunburned high end. Settle in and adjust to the buzzy nature and
after a few tracks you sort of forget about it. Another way to look at is that it's punk, and if you think along that line then
Watchtower suddenly rules. You know, if you look at it like that then this entire messy thing is one big glorious effort.
Okay, maybe it's not that bad, that harp of Bob's is coming through clear and those guitars are sharp and pissed off.
COMMENTS: Hey, since when is Shooting Star played so fast, I guess it really is a rock and roll show. This might be one
the best versions of Jim Jones I've heard. Bob is nailing every single word and his solo is passable, this is fantastic. Man,
one song after another, and they're all played aggressive as hell. Shades of 1988, or just a night where they all happened to
be in the same mood? The sound cleans slightly in the second half (the buzz on loud vocals never leaves though) and listen
to the harp and guitars in I & I or the shuddering Endless Summer-esque slowdown in Everything Is Broken for a couple
examples of how great this tape can sound at times. Unfortunately, you have to sit through a goodly bit of buzzing, raw
stock to get to the choice cuts, so it's probably not worth it, at least not as your first trading option.
BOTTOM LINE: You'll probably find something here you like, but you're going to have to work for it, and this isn't close to
the best sounding shows in this collection.
