This one was recorded before I got my first "real" rig. I used an old GE (I think) recorder with a built in microphone that I also used to record lectures at Ohio State. As such, it sounds pretty bad. I'm hopefull there are some die-hard Ramones collectors that can get some use out of this. It was my first Ramones show, so it was pretty special. A wonderful surprise that evening was the opening band, Nashville's Walk The West. The released one album and a live EP. If you have a chance, check them out. Walk The West later morphed into The Cactus Brothers and released two albums.
I have been recording shows since the mid 1980's. Many of these shows were traded and widely circulated on cassette tape back in the day. This effort is to create a fresh transfer of my master recordings from the original media and provide an unaltered version (except volume boost if needed and/or fade) of these shows. I will include as much information about the equipment used to create the recording, as well as the process and tools used for the transfer as I can. Enjoy!
