Jason & The Scorchers
Capitol, Mannheim, Germany
October - 06 - 1985
from MILAVALENTI collection # 049
The MILAVALENTI collection consists mostly of 80's and some 90's and 2000's masters in generally great sound. Most of the concerts
which will be uploaded from this collection are uncirculated. I met the taper who is an old friend of mine recently after more than 20 years.
He was happy to give me his very precious gems to be presented to a wider public. In the 80's I often went to concerts with him and sometimes
both of us were recording.
So some of the recordings which will be uploaded have been uploaded by me before as of my masters collections and some of his recordings
which had been uploaded by me already as first gen copies will now be re-uploaded as master transfers.
The musical style varies from "normal Rock acts" to Wave/Punk and Avantgarde. Also some German Post-Punk acts are included.
Recording equipment: SONY WM-D 6 with AIWA CM-30 Microphone
master tape / cass transfer via Onkyo tapedeck TA-2330 -> Magix Audio & Music Lab (edit/remaster) -> FLAC -> DIME
VG+, some equalizing was done (check sample). Sound level adjusted. There is a cut in track 13 due to tape flip.
This is a nice set of a very relaxed band in the old Mannheim cinema Capitol. Unfortunately the sound in the venue is not the best because of the very high dome type roof and there is always a lot of echo. Apart from this and the cut in track 13 it is a solid recording with the band talking a lot between songs. Unfortunately it's a bit short and one day later in Stuttgart the played 10 minutes longer. That was an upload by tomyoungster (it's not longer on dime) and I took a parrt of the setlist from that as I assume that they more or less played the same set + some more songs).
Attached is a scan of the ticket stub.
