Comment:  *=Freight Train is the
Elizabeth Cotten tune, **=first time played, ***=only time played. A
string had broke on Kahn's bass, so after telling the audience: "We're
fixing a string on the bass, so y'all talk amongst yourselves", Jerry led
Melvin and Kemper through a soft, sincere reading: Jer on his acoustic
patch and Melvin on piano.

04/02/2002 Dan Not true comment on Libba Cotton tune, "Freight Train". He also played it at 4/10/82 Capitol Theater show. Though it may have been the first time since.
06/21/2002 Peter Roe Had a friend Harry who also taped this show, gave me analog copy from his master DAT. I sent it off to an etreer last year who converted to SHN for me - forget the kind fellow's name. Long story short, there is at least one additional shn in circ on this show. Very fine show - attended it and was thrilled with the Freight Train.
06/21/2002 Peter Roe One more update about the shn I mentioned in my last comment - you will know it if you run across it because on Disc 1, Dear Prudence and My Sisters and Brothers are run together in one track, and Midnight Moonlight is the 8th track on disc 1. In reality, Midnight Moonlight was the last song of the show (not an encore there was no encore).
08/02/2002 Clay Brennecke I mastered this show (11.03.93) with some AKGs in a hat FOB DFC.

I Also mastered ALL of the November 1993 JGB Tour FOB DFC with Shweppies, Neumanns, and various DAT machines, preamps and A/Ds. I ran spread omnis in Portland (sounds like crap) and got popped second set of Landover and tossed -after surviving THREE pops in the first set that took four or five taper friends out. You can hear clearly on the Landover show my offering the security goon 20 bucks, then a while later you can clearly hear me say, "How about $200? $300?" -I made it to about the 3rd song of the second set of Landover before the tossing. I was tossed twice in Buffalo, and was taping with Roger at the Spectrum when we were popped and tossed during Set Two's "Lucky Old Sun" or it might have been a "Senior."

Anyway, there are SO many folks CLAIMING they mastered shows that I mastered FOB DFC -oddly enough with the same gear....... I wonder why they only taped ONE show with such fine gear????

Why don't we see these folks claiming they used an AMS ST-250 to tape the Dead but only taped one night of two or three night run? Many of these folks' names are never seen again on Etree.

In 1993, there were TWO AMS ST-250 microphones in the USA -James and I had one, and Jeff Silberman (a true taping legend) owned the other. There were NO others until Ronnie K. bought one after his B&K 4011s were stolen from his car at a rest area -I believe he told me it was the first rest area leaving NYC once you enter NJ.

Yes, a small handful of folks with the 'DADDY' gear taped JGB in November 0f 1993 FOB ...and we all knew each other and helped each other.

Yes, I am certain there are tapes from 11-93 that folks we didn't know taped, but when I download a .shn JGB or Dead file and I hear myself stating my name, section number, Row number or letter and Yes, each night, FOB DFC and various comments either after the first set or after the second set, or sometimes after both (and a loadcheck), It's a safe bet that I wouldn't state my 'Signature' at a show in to someone else's rig!

Let's keep spreading the joy!

Let's also not claim being the one who 'Mastered' FOB/FOB DFC Masters as many folks who are making such statements DID NOT MASTER certain shows FOB DFCwith 'such & such' gear.

I busted my ass to make SO many tapes, as did James Young, and one should at least give credit to the taper. Would you also like the section number/letter, row letter/number, seat number(s) each set as we would sometimes have to fork over the seats to the rightful revokable license holder and relocate and finally whether we ran the mics handheld both sets, Handheld them mics during set one and on a stand the next.

Food for thought!

08/02/2002 Andy G. Clay, your taping tales are nothing short of amazing and believe me, they have inspired many younger tapers. As far as I am concerned you are The Man. Countless heads have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy the gems you've recorded. Rest well assured of that. Don't know who might be claiming to have mastered your stuff, sounds bogus, probably either someone clueless or just an honest mistake. Hope you're well... Andy
