I am pleased to present some of the recordings of Gary Barrett here on dime and this is the second one of them I am uploading here on dime.
Gary Barrett (alfienoakes on Dime):
Gary was a well-known figure in the Glasgow music scene, after working in A1 Sounds / Fopp and Avalanche Records for over 20 years. He also promoted a few shows in the mid 80s.
When minidisc technology emerged, he immediately set himself up for recording and began chronicling all the gigs he attended. This is a record of all the existing MD�s I found
in his massive music collection, which his brother asked me to transfer on to hard drive.
Gary passed away suddenly from natural causes in Sept 2006, ironically just after he purchased his first HD recorder and only got to record 2 shows with (Green On Red at King Tut�s being the last one).
Big thanks to jamroom for taking over this project and the many dimebots who have helped him in this massive endeavour. This MD Project is a tribute to his passion for live music and supporting local
and small touring bands.
This is a nice show from the 2002 reunion tour. Another concert from this tour (Southampton 2002-10-02) was upped to dime in 2005.
It's a great mixture of old songs and some new stuff from their then new album Artifact. The keyboarder is the son of James Lowe (one of the founding members).
The sound of the recording sounds quite good but there is a lot of talking around the taper especially in the second half of the show and that makes it a bit
difficult to really enjoy it. I got the line-up mainly from the Wiki site but I am not sure about the drummer (all three of them were obviously playing on Artifact).
Photograph of the minidisc is included.
