per Sam:

I recorded this with 2 Shure SM57’s -> Casio DA-7 dat machine. I was the only taper there.

This was during the brief ‘no taping’ era. Mom’s Kitchen had come out on 7/30/91 and I guess Capricorn wanted to put the kibosh on taping, somehow they thought they would sell more records if they didn’t allow taping. I was shut down the night before at Trax in Charlottesville.

This was a free show outside at Hampden Sydney that ended right as it got dark. I was set up by the sand volleyball court about 25 yards from the stage. No one told me to stop taping. The stage was pretty small and I know they were having issues with it being able to support the weight of all the gear and band.

There is some hilarious stage banter, the band was having a really good time. There was like 500 people there and people were going crazy, running around, a few twirlers spinning in the open field, and frat boys partying hard.

– During Heaven JB says
‘There is a party, about 30 people are there’
apparently referring to the size of the crowd.

– Tape flip after C.Brown.

– Thomas Smith wrote this note on the tape cover:
“They (WSP) opened for the Sharp Dressed Penguins,
a lame college band, so they could get the hell out
of Rochester and on to Arrowhead Ranch.”

– According to Thomas Smith:
Widespread Panic was supposed to headline,
but chose to open instead, as the venue
was a small pizza joint. The band was also
scheduled to play the next night with
Blues Traveler.

– Mikey sat for the set
