As promised, here is Volume 3! This set was an exploratory experience for me as well as a fun project. I'm not well-versed in the post -Bruce material (a period I generally refer to as "The Decline") so I was hoping to hear something new in this....and did I ever. There is some great stuff here - more than I knew was there, particularly in '94. I think even those hardcore fans of the earlier GD will find something to love on this disc. Going thru all of this music reinforced a basic truth for me: there is something to love - even if it's just a moment - in every single GD concert, no matter what the year or who was there.
HUGE thanks for this go out to my pal Chris Larson, who supplied a few of these tracks, and to all my frineds at Tooboarders.net.
First, all tracks (26 to start with) were EAC'd from my audio discs. A few of these (Tracks 3, 7, 12, 17 & 18) were converted directly from SHN or FLAC. I played around with the order of the tracks until I found transitions I thought would be manageable. Volumes were all over the map, so I normalized them and blended the tracks. Most tracks had a little cut off the end (you'll notice that many are leading into Drumz~) and I generally applied a cross-fade of 2 to 4 seconds. For some I used a mixng technique to blend the next track into the previous. For Track 1, I boosted the left chanel 3.1db to bring up Jerry's guitar (for a tronger opening to the disc.) For Track 18, I boosted the last few measaures, and ended with a quick fade out.
Track 1: 6.18.92 [SBD -> Dat -> CD] Dark Star Jam out of Space into All Along The Watchtower.
Track 2: 6.22.92 [SBD -> Dat -> CD] Spanish Jam out of Space into The Other One.
Track 3: 3.17.93 [SBD -> Dat (44.1k)] Playin' Jam out of Playing In The Band into Dark Star.
Track 4: 2.27.94 [DSBD>CM(?)>DAT] Supplication Jam in the bridge of Uncle John's Band.
Track 5: 6.8.92 [DSBD > DAT > 1C > DAT] Dear Prudence Jam out of Corrina into Drumz.
Track 6: 6.6.93 [DSBD master> Dat Clone> ?> CDR] Playin' Jam out Playing In The Band into Drumz.
Track 7: 9.8.93 [SBD -> Master Dat -> Dat Clone (48k)] Standing On The Moon Jam out of I Need A Miracle into Black Peter.
Track 8: 3.21.94 [SBD > DAT > CDR > SHNv3] Jam out of He's Gone into Drumz.
Track 9: 3.23.95 [SBD -> Dat (44.1k)] Jam out of Matilda into Drumz.
Track 10: 10.6.94 [FOB Nakamichi300>?>D7] Jam out of Truckin' into Drumz.
Track 11: 3.24.93 [SBD > DAT > CDR > EAC > SHN] Spanish Jam out of Space into Going Down The Road Feelin' Bad.
Track 12: 3.17.93 [SBD -> Dat (44.1k)] Two Soldiers Jam out of Space into The Other One. The text file I have for this seed (from Charlie Miller) lists this as "Handsome Cabin Boy Jam." Deadbase lists it as "Two Soldiers Jam." Since Deadbase is usually considered definitive, that's how it is listed here. But to be fair - it sounds a LOT like the melody from HCB, and this would be in the time period Dawg & Spud were working with that song.
Track 13: 2.27.94 [DSBD>CM(?)>DAT] Cosmic Charlie tease out of The Other One into Wharf Rat. It's very short, and the end is abrupt, but it was too good to pass up.
Track 14: 10.1.94 [SBD> Dat> CDR (Pre-Fm GDH Discs) > CDR > EAC (Secure Mode, Test
and Copy) > SHN] Jam out of Terrapin Station into Drumz.
Track 15: 9.29.94 [Dsbd>D>C>D>CD] Spanish Jam out of Space into The Other One.
Track 16: 3.10.93 [Sbd > DAT master > analog > DAT > CDR > EAC > SHN] Mind Left Body Jam out of Corrina into Drumz.
Track 17: 9.17.93 [SBD>DAT>CDR] Jam out of Saint Of Circumstance into Drumz.
Track 18: 4.7.94 [DSBD > CD > EAC > SHN] Jam out of Terrapin Station into Drumz.
