Unfortunately it looks like this is all that remains after nearly 30 years. The second side of the cassette contains a Robin Trower studio
album. So one of three things probably happened - (1) Kevin accidently taped over the rest of the show (most likely); (2) Kevin didn't tape
the rest of the show (unlikely); (3) the rest of the show is on another cassette that hasn't surfaced yet (possible).
The Kevin Davie Memorial Series
This series is in memory of Kevin Davie who died suddenly 31 March 2016. Kevin was an avid taper & recorded many concerts mainly in Vancouver,
Victoria & Toronto. All these recordings have been sourced directly from Kevin�s master cassettes. With thanks to Mary Davie, Kevin�s Mother
for allowing us access to all of Kevin�s masters. This is a joint venture between DGB, Dennis Orr, Seth Meister, Leif Henderson & John
MacMillan. Kevin was a dear friend of mine & helped me greatly when I first moved to Canada in June 1994 for which I will forever be grateful.
He had a great sense of humour. He was always happy to remind me of Ray Cooper�s percussion solo that I had to endure at the end of all the
Eric Clapton shows I went to in the 90s (there were many!). He did an excellent job in impersonating Mr. Cooper! Kevin had a great taste in
music & shared my love of the blues. We hope that you enjoy these releases & that we can continue Kevin�s legacy for many years to come. You
left this world way too soon. Rest in peace my friend.
Kevin and I had plans to post some of his shows himself. He needed the ratio boost! haha. We had begun to work on some of his shows, when we
had a bit of a dust up over something silly. Sadly, we never had the chance to mend fences together. Hopefully, through this series of shows,
Kevin's memory can be properly honoured and that he can continue to leave a lasting legacy with the recordings that he left behind. I also
hope that when I go beyond this world that my master cassette collection that I haven't gotten to will find a similar new home with trader's
and collectors and fans everywhere, too...
