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 and others, who have helped him in this massive endeavour. This MD Project is a tribute to his passion for live music and supporting local bands and venues.'

Photograph of minidisc included.

Gary missed the start and the first track of the recording fades-in as he walked into the room. Based on the other support slot shows around this time I'm guessing this was the second song. Sound improves noticeably after the first song.
