Welcome to Volume Eighteen of the "Two Of Us" Master Series.
Between 1983 and 1999 there was likely not a taper or taping duo more active than the "Two Of Us". For the better part of a decade and a half they taped over 250 artists with an array being taped multiple times.
If you collect Springsteen then you are already familiar with some of their work, "fmcleanboots" has posted a half dozen or so of their "Tunnel Of Love" tour shows but has decided to pass the baton.
What you don't know is their passion was not just for Springsteen but for music and that passion runs deep. It is astonishing how many artists they taped.
They followed tours taping club shows, theater shows, arena shows, big artists, mid-level artists and local artists. If they were following a tour and the tour had an off night they'd see who else was playing that night to tape.
Always focused on enjoyment of the show as the priority, tickets were for the most part acquired outside of the venue as they worked to obtain the best possible seats, continually trading up until the correct seats were acquired.
The results of this were the captures are uniformly excellent but on occasion the start of the show was sacrificed as a trade-off for the seats. The heavy lifting was done by the Sony WM-D6C and an external Shure Mic before moving to DAT for the last couple of years.
None of their masters have ever been circulated and have been safely stored for the past three to four decades in a climate controlled environment. Tapes transferred so far are in pristine condition.
Though we may do some mini releases of a series of shows in order for one portion of a tour for the most part shows will not be released in order, there are just too many of them.
This will be a very exciting series and we hope along the way we upgrade existing circulating audio and offer up shows that do not have any circulating audio.
We hope you enjoy the ride, this is definitely not a dark ride.
Dave Edmunds @ Tramps 1994
Volume 15 of our series was an excellent Nick Lowe show at the Wetlands in 1995.
For Volume 18 we find our taping duo at Tramps just a few months prior for a show featuring Nick's former "Rockpile" partner Dave Edmunds.
Where Nick's show was more on purpose in it's "theme" of lost love, regrets and heartache, Dave's show is a more basic, rollicking party.
The Memphis Horns join the party for "Sweet Little Rock & Roller" and stay until the end.
Recorded close the stage, other than missing the first few songs, this is an excellent document of the 1994 tour.
Thanks to "Two Of Us" and their dedication to capturing all these great shows as well as trusting me to be the caretaker of their work. Also, a big thank you to my friend "fmcleanboots" for putting me in touch and laying the groundwork that has resulted in what in this release and future releases.
