Well, I'm finally getting around to digitizing my 700+ cassettes (at my wife's insistence--she wants them out of the house), so I'm going to start posting some goodies here. I taped many a show in the Toronto area from the late '80's to the late '90's, and also recorded a lot of radio broadcasts, mostly from CFNY, 102.1 in Toronto. Hope you stumble across something you like, or even a show you were at!

addendum: I have had many comments about the fate of my tapes, so for those worried about them...the masters I am boxing up and storing in my parents' basement. The others (mixed tapes, recorded LP's, etc) are getting tossed. My wife is not evil or insensitive--we live in a small place, and the many boxes were getting in the way. This is something I'VE wanted to do for awhile, as well. She just gave me the push. Oh, and she doesn't have shelves of makeup, or hundreds of shoes, no matter what stereotypes you care to buy in to. Her comic collection, however....

Lava Hay--Phil's Grandson's Place, Waterloo, ON, Canada, June 24, 1990

Last of the recordings from the outdoor festival that got moved into a dive bar at the last moment. The Tragically Hip and Crash Vegas sets are already up here somewhere.
Lava Hay were a folky duo of 2 girls with long, blonde hair that were famous for about 15 minutes up here in Canada--I'm sure some of you remember them. Nothing too earth-shattering, but pleasant enough. I saw them twice over a three day period, once at this festival, and then 2 days later opening for 54-40 in Brantford, which I am also posting here. If you just want the one, I suggest this show--better sound quality, and one extra song.
