Reseda (CA) - March 15th, 1981

Butterking for JEMS :

This show was recorded by RG, a prolific taper at the time in L.A. (not to mention a great guy), and what he lacked in quality equipment, he made up for in the shows he managed to record. Like a lot of tapers of his era, he did some things that seem strange now, like pausing on occasion between songs to save tape.

That being said, I find this recording to be highly listenable and highly entertaining. It is clear and has little distortion. The whole show is there and some chatter in between, too, though not all. I transferred RG's master cassette to DAT around 10 years ago, and pulled it out yesterday and did this transfer. The only thing I did besides break it into tracks was add some fade ins and fade outs. I didn't even normalize, so this is pretty much exactly as the master is.

I probably traded a DAT clone or two of this back in the day, but it has never been torrented from this verified lineage.
