JEMS is proud to be able to partner with and present some of the choice recordings in the D & D archives. Some of these recordings have been around for years but none of the master tapes or safety copies in some cases have ever been digitized until now. Dave and Donn taped many shows in and around the Seattle area in the 70's and also were contemporaries of some of the JEMS members. Volume 12 consists of a partial recording made of Zappa's stop in Seattle in early 74 by Dave's brother. The recording is mono but very good sounding. He only had a single side of a 90 minute cassette tape to work with so this was all that was captured.
