Also I must mention that there may be repeated material between say the end of D1 & the beginning of D2. Chaffe did his transfers to a studio grade HHB CD recorder and he would track "on the fly" thus making certain IDs in the incorrect places, but ALL of the material is included so it is possible for you to reassemble and re-track the show to your liking (and you should feel free to do so). I haven't listened to these discs in years (I did check them during this transfer and the EAC logs are here too) so I really don't remember what the situation is. Lastly, there may well be some filler at the end of D3 (if there is, I DO NOT know any info pertaining to it. This may all seem a bit much of an explanation, but I'm trying to head off any confusion on the other end before it begins. TAKE HOME POINT: It's all here; the entire show.

I met my friend Chaffe at the December 6, 1996 MMW show in Asheville. It was the 2nd show that I'd ever taped with my new Sony D8 DAT recorder. My other taping buddy Jay Hahn had a set of PZMs that we used to record that show. This was before Chaffe had his wonderful mic rig that he used to record this show. He got a line to his DA-P1 from me, we exchanged phone numbers & the rest is one of the greatest blessings of my life. This guy had(has) a collection that was astounding & he was very kind about sharing it with me at a time when I had no real resources for collecting DATs other than taping them myself with a sad little Sony mic. He got to know the guys in MMW simply by going & taping them a LOT from around 1998 to who knows. I have more great MMW tapes as well as many other recordings that he taped or traded for those years ago. I do not know if this source has been highly circulated or not, but here it is for those that want to hear a very different MMW show than what you may have heard before.

This one is especially for Bag's Groove by request.  I hope that
this will help you get this run of shows back in your collection,
and thank you for all that you share with all of us. If anyone has
the other shows from this run, please upload them and PM me & Bags
(I think he'd want to know).

Stay tuned...Jan. 17, 1999 coming soon (same source)

May 2008


I have MMW from Be Here Now - Asheville, NC 7/15/1996 (I think that's the date) from the ONLY (good) set of mics (mounted on a stand) in the room that night. The first 3 tunes of the show are material that I've not heard on any of the other tapes from that year (they may be improvs), but it is my absolute favorite 45 minutes of MMW ever. I have the whole show (the rest is standard Friday Afternoon fare, but good) if anyone's interested in having that uploaded. I really just don't know if it's been around or not, and I dont want to be redundant. If you do have that show, you can bet that you have the best copy (the ONLY good source unless you got a copy from my buddy Jay, he used a "sad little Sony mic", but I don't think he circulated it). Let me know (also have 12-6-2006 -PZMs source).
