April 8, 1989

Roger McGuinn performed three times with Crowded House in April 1989 as a group that became dubbed ByrdHouse. Roger performed four songs with CH as his backup band. First performance on April 7, 1989 at the Pantages Theater Hollywood CA. Three tracks from that show are available on the "I Feel Possessed" EP & 12" single. This recording April 8 at USDC San Diego CA and finally the Arlington Theater April 9, which was simulcast on the radio and has often been bootlegged. After the 4 song set each night CH performed their own full set.

While the other two ByrdHouse performances have been around for a while it seems that this one has not. I nearly discarded this recording as it was tagged onto the end of a cassette comprised of a Bruce Hornsby audience tape. I first thought it just another copy of the common ByrdHouse recording until I looked at the date. I'm glad I looked closer. This is a 1st generation audience tape of the San Diego performance. I'm hoping if I crawl around the attic some more I will find the CH set even though that circulates in a soundboard, time will tell. Enjoy!

Byrd House is:
Roger McGuinn: Vocal, guitar

This is part of the Atlasstar Attic Treasures Series. My attic consists of thousands of cassettes collected since the 70's. I will post them in no particular order as I pull them out of the attic and convert to digital. Some of these artists I know well and collect myself, other I know little about just picked up along the way. I will provide as much info as I can but if anyone can add any insight to the recordings it would be appreciated. If the same recording is circulating in better quality please let me know as I have no intention of polluting the trading pool. A list of all recordings in this series is included with the torrent.

All recordings are kept as original as possible with minimal processing. Unless noted otherwise the only adjustments made are Automatic Phase Correction, Level adjustments and cleaning of any rough or abrupt cuts.
