Master AUD recording

**mp3 samples provided (as always) in the Comments section**

I've been a fan of Barbecue Bob and the Spareribs from the first time I saw them...which was sometime in the mid-1990s at the festival formerly known as the Riverfest in Red Bank, NJ. As it turns out, Bob's been burning up the NY/NJ club circuit since 1981.

Bob and the guys play a style of music categorized as Swamp Blues. Yes, it's blues...but kinda swampy, I guess. In any event, it's good stuff. Check them out! My thanks to Bob for allowing me to record this show for posterity. A DVD of this same exact show was previously shared.

Note: Unfortunately, there is a certain degree of nearby audience chatter during "Turn Your Lamp Down Low" (a handful of people were talking near the soundboard); fortunately, that's the only track that really suffers from it. The rest of the recording is essentially chatter-free.

Zoom H2 (120 degree mic pattern) > WAV (onto SD card) > Nero wave editor (trim & fade end tracks, boost volume) > FLAC Frontend (sb-aligned) > FLAC

The band is:
Bob Pomeroy - lead vocals, guitar, harp
Zonder Kennedy - guitar
Tom Diello - bass
David Lee Ross - drums

If you like this torrent, won't you please take a moment to post a comment on the board? It only takes a moment, and believe me, it takes A LOT longer to prepare/upload a show for others to enjoy than it does to download and run.
