JEMS notes
Found this DAT in the archive and was pleasantly surprised by the quality when I threw it on. Back in the day, JEMS experimented with mixing two source recordings from the same show, now commonly called matrixing. This DAT blends JEMS' Nak 700 master with our friend MH's Sonic Studios master, picking the best channel of each. Given the different decks, the sources eventually go out of sync but that can be corrected. You may hear an adjustment or two on here, the most notable one I heard was at the start of "Where the Streets Have No Name."

The reason we favored such mixes at the time is that they created a wide-open soundstage and seemed additive when it came to strengthening the best qualities of both recordings.

From the research I did online, the widely disseminated source for this early PopMart show is the bootleg Popmart Shopping Eugene. I don't have a copy of that but based on the description I suspect it is an entirely different source, and presume this recording to be an upgrade.

We may have used the shotgun attachment on the Nak 700s; I will try to find out. MH was on the floor as I recall and the JEMS team (well, half of us anyway) were up on the side a section back from the stage.

I remember thinking this was a strange show, the highlight of which for me was "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me." It is probably better on tape in hindsight than it was in person.

Anyway, this seemed unusual enough to post here. Sample provided. I indexed the songs to match the same tracks as Shopping Eugene (not in the exact same places but same number of tracks per disc so the artwork will still match).

Before you ask, it is unlikely I will post the two sources separately any time soon. Enjoy this first.
