Mastering Notes:
- There were a number of places where it sounded like Kevin either bumped or rubbed the mic against something or had a loose input jack, causing a few milliseconds of noise. I did my best to eliminate as many of these as I could, but I'm sure I missed some.
- Tape flip during the applause after "Razor Love" - there is kind of an abrupt transition, and the first few notes of "Daddy Went Walkin'" are missing
- Tape flip during the applause after "Band Intros" - seamlessly spliced, no music lost
- The recorder was shut off and restarted during both "Encore Break" applause sections - seamlessly spliced, no music lost
- Tape flip at 6:35 during "All Along The Watchtower" - seamlessly spliced, but some music lost

The Kevin Davie Memorial Series

This series is in memory of Kevin Davie who died suddenly 31 March 2016. Kevin was an avid taper & recorded many concerts mainly in Vancouver, Victoria & Toronto. All these recordings have been sourced directly from Kevin�s master cassettes. With thanks to Mary Davie, Kevin�s Mother for allowing us access to all of Kevin�s masters. This is a joint venture between DGB, Dennis Orr, Seth Meister, Leif Henderson & John MacMillan. Kevin was a dear friend of mine & helped me greatly when I first moved to Canada in June 1994 for which I will forever be grateful. He had a great sense of humour. He was always happy to remind me of Ray Cooper�s percussion solo that I had to endure at the end of all the Eric Clapton shows I went to in the 90s (there were many!). He did an excellent job in impersonating Mr. Cooper! Kevin had a great taste in music & shared my love of the blues. We hope that you enjoy these releases & that we can continue Kevin�s legacy for many years to come. You left this world way too soon. Rest in peace my friend.


Kevin and I had plans to post some of his shows himself. He needed the ratio boost! haha. We had begun to work on some of his shows, when we had a bit of a dust up over something silly. Sadly, we never had the chance to mend fences together. Hopefully, through this series of shows, Kevin's memory can be properly honoured and that he can continue to leave a lasting legacy with the recordings that he left behind. I also hope that when I go beyond this world that my master cassette collection that I haven't gotten to will find a similar new home with trader's and collectors and fans everywhere, too...
