Ex- sound after some EQ (treble lifted). The flac-file from G. Barrett was consisting of both acts (Thanes + Seeds). So the flac-file was split into two parts.
Sound level adjusted.
I am pleased to present some of the recordings of Gary Barrett here on dime and this is the second one of them I am uploading here on dime.
Gary Barrett (alfienoakes on Dime):
Gary was a well-known figure in the Glasgow music scene, after working in A1 Sounds / Fopp and Avalanche Records for over 20 years. He also promoted a few shows in the mid 80s.
When minidisc technology emerged, he immediately set himself up for recording and began chronicling all the gigs he attended. This is a record of all the existing MD�s I found
in his massive music collection, which his brother asked me to transfer on to hard drive.
Gary passed away suddenly from natural causes in Sept 2006, ironically just after he purchased his first HD recorder and only got to record 2 shows with (Green On Red at King Tut�s being the last one).
Big thanks to jamroom for taking over this project and the many dimebots who have helped him in this massive endeavour. This MD Project is a tribute to his passion for live music and supporting local
and small touring bands.
Even if Sky Saxon is the only original band member here the band is amazingly close to the roots. And the then new songs fit very well to the old material.
Ok, Sky Saxon has certainly seen better days and he continues to thank Scotland throughout the set (and he mentions that Try To Understand is from the second album but it's from the first) but he is very talkative and
all in all it's a very enjoyable show.
It is a pity that Jan Savage who had started the European tour with the band had to leave early during the first gigs in Spain but his replacement on guitar
(whoever it was as I can't make out the names of the band members announced by Sky) is doing a great job. This all is very well received by the audience which is partially
going crazy during the set. Needless to say it's very sad that Sky has left us some years later (in 2009).
Photograph of minidisc included.
