Late Show

"Mason B. Taylor was a taper from Chicago that recorded concerts by many bands in the Chicagoland area and on Dead tours. He used a Nakamichi 550 with Nakamichi 300 mics with shotgun capsules for most of his earlier recordings. In later years he used Sony D-5 and Sony D-3 cassette recorders with Nakamichi 300 mics.

Mason captured spectacular musical moments and loved to share them with his closest friends. In honor of Mason and all the love he put into his recordings we are now able to share these moments with those who can appreciate them most.

As the shows get uploaded we would love for you to share your stories about the epic times the music evokes so we can all dial back into that moment when the magic was happening.

Thanks to Mason’s family and his Chicago and Cleveland friends for opening up Mason’s Jar…"

Recorded By Mason Taylor on a Nakamichi 550 Cassette Deck,
on chrome tapes, with Nakamichi microphones.

Transferred on Mason's restored Nak500 properly.

Notes:  Short drop out at the end of Reuben And Cerise, roughly half a second.
The first line of Ripple is missing, I can't hear the edit, but in comparison
with the Ripple on the other, soundboard source of this set, shnid.100856, I
know there is a line missing.  There is a minute of applause and 10 seconds of banter missing at the tape chage after Sugaree.

Also note that shnid.100856 is misidentified as the early show.  The Dire Wolf
may be from the early show, and there is an audible edit between Dire Wolf and
Jack Straw on shnid.100856.  On this audience source, from the opening tuning and banter, where Hunter asks to have his monitor turned up only to realize he hadn't plugged in yet through the end of Reuben And Cerise sounds like one continuous piece of tape.

In the banter between Day Job and R&C, he mentions wanting to tune up because he
changed strings between shows.  This is present on both sources.

In the banter before Slack String Quartet, he said he wants to play the song because he had to abort the song in the last set because he broke a string.   This is present on both sources.

In the banter before Mississippi Half Step, he asks "How many people are leftover from the first show here." befor he decides that then he need to play something he didn't already do in the Early show.
