OldNeumanntapr Notes-

This was one of the first shows at Pozo that I went to, back when the ‘stage’ was nothing more than the pack porch of the saloon. The Pozo Saloon is a 100+ year old former stage coach stop, located out in the county, north east of San Luis Obispo, CA., about 20 miles from the main highway. They hold concerts there in the field behind the saloon regularly.

In later years the owners of the Pozo Saloon would build an elaborate stage further back in the pasture and thus be able to bring in larger acts with more people and eliminate the blocked sight lines caused from the various tall trees directly behind the saloon. But in the early 90's the stage was nothing more than the Saloon's back porch. There were a lot of trees out back that obscured site lines to the 'stage', unless you were close up. This particular show was on a Sunday morning. I think it was a much more intimate setting in the old days.

Because the Pozo Saloon is out in the middle of nowhere, supposedly when Bruce Springsteen needed a remote location midway between the bay area and San Diego to meet with Clarence Clemons, he decided Pozo was the place. Apparently No one even recognized them!

I had my recording equipment hidden in a back pack at the foot of my lawn chair. We were in the front row, not too far from the right PA stack. Being that it was broad daylight, it was hard to hide the microphones so I had them low in the backpack in front of the speakers with just the capsules protruding. Thanks to Dennis Orr for the Sound Forge / iZotope / EQ Post Production.
