Edie Brickell, Rob Wasserman & Jerry Garcia
Club Front, San Rafael, CA
December 16, 1989
This tape was the flip side of the 10,000 Maniacs Pier show I posted earlier and was sent to me as a soundboard recording. It was simply labeled 'Edie Brickell Demos' on the case and has Rob Wasserman, Jerry Garcia and Trio Outtakes written on the cassette itself. And so the research began. As I dug around I found two similar posts on Lossless Legs, but none exactly the same. The common thread was the date and performance location. One of the other posts was very much the same as this one ( http://www.shnflac.net/shndetails.php?shnid=107541&band=garcia) but but did not contain tracks one and two. I downloaded this for comparison and it contains the same tracks but is probably two generations further out from the source then mine. I found a second post (http://www.shnflac.net/shndetails.php?shnid=28686&band=garcia) that is more complete but notes the sound quality is not that good. I was not able to get a copy of this one to compare.
So in essence this is a studio rehearsal from The Club Front of a couple of tracks that would show up on the Rob Wasserman "Trios" 1994 release along with some demos of some Edit Brickell songs.
Now also on the cassette at the end of the Trio tracks were three additional Edie Brickell & The New Bohemian live tracks(these are in the extra folder). I have no idea of the source for these tracks. There is a gap after What I Am, but Nothing and Mama flow together so those two are definitely from the same performance. My instincts tell me these may be from a Saturday Night Live performance, at least the first one anyway. Edie makes a slight flub of the lyrics in WIA which matches the story of the day she met Paul Simon(look that up for yourself). That would date this to November 5, 1988. There is a YouTube video of WIA on SNL but the audio seems to be dubbed from the studio recording so it's not any help in solving this mystery. Also I see no evidence that track 2 and 3 were performed on SNL that night. It is most likely that the last two tracks are from a later performance as Mama Help Me was not released until 1990, but anything is possible.

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.
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.
