The story of The Moose Track collection
In the late 80Õs a buddy of mine in Pennsylvania told me during my visit to the East coast about a tiny independent record store in Port Jervis, NY called Moose track Records. He thought I be interested in a box of live tapes he saw for sale in there. I went over almost immediately and sure enough there it was, a box of 72 cassettes. Some without labels. Some were generic white cassettes with a white cardboard insert. Most were TDK normal bias. Some were from the sixties, most from the seventies. Some were from BBC, most were audience recordings from the NY/east coast area. I bought them all at 50 cents a tape. Bands I knew: Devo, NY Dolls, Capt. Beefheart, Runaways,Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, Led Zeppelin, Graham Parker, Rockpile, Damned. Bands I didnÕt know: Ducks Deluxe, Eddie and The Hotrods, Frankie Miller. Some cool oddballs: Johnny Rotten DJ-ing at the BBC, Monty Python in a radio appearance, a 10 minute radio clip devoted to the death of Paul McCarthy.
Yes, IÕve digitized them all with no EQ. All are a bit hissy, some have drop outs, the listening qualities vary wildly and IÕll do my best to describe them and post samples.
A lot has surfaced in better qualities over the years so feel free to ask about anything IÕve mentioned, you might already have it.
ALSO! Feel free to EQ or tweak the pitch or whatever. If you can genuinely clean up any of these do it, post it just be clear that itÕs your whatever version. I hear the potential in a lot of these recordings, but I simply donÕt have the time or place to do it myself. I was recently near the master cassettes for a short time and retransferred a ... I donÕt know. A dozen or so and I intend to post and seed as much as I can.

Kinda the same quality as AntonioÕs Pizza recording in a bigger louder venue. Great performance (of course) and a crazed rowdy crowd.
