POST: Mick TAYLOR: Maidenlane FRANKENSTEIN's Versions Vol 14 - 1989.05.28 - NYC (Lone Star Roadhouse) - 1st show
The Maidenlane Recordings:
a Mick Taylor tribute
Long-time Mick Taylor fan Maidenlane taped a number of Mick’s gigs on the East Coast (mainly in New York City) between November 1986 - May 1993 to preserve his own memories. Around the same time Mick Taylor lived in NYC and thus did a lot of concerts there, with his own bands or as a guest artist with other great musicians.
In our first series we first published the concerts that had never been circulated in any form. By listening to the others we discovered that many of his alternative recordings were interesting too. In the second series we publish the “Maidenlane Tapes Alts” which will feature recordings that are either in better sound quality, more complete or sound differently from previous releases.
In this last series we present the result of mixes and merges which will be similar to the Frankenstein productions (of my FP-series): by “mixing” I mean that I simultaneously record the 2 sources and by “merging” I mean that I record each source on a different channel (one for the left channel and the other for the right).
Of course, we are very grateful to Maidenlane and I also would like to thank nzb for his help (his advice, judgements and expertise have been invaluable to me).
The Maidenlane FRANKENSTEIN’S VERSIONS
28. May 1989
Lone Star Roadhouse
(2 sources mixed and merged)
28th May 1989: New York City, Lone Star Roadhouse (1st show)
Line-up: MT (gtr/voc)/Max Middleton (keyb)/Shane Fontayne (gtr)/Wilbur Bascomb (bass)/Eric Parker (dr)
Part I: the mixed versions
01 - intro & tuning (first 35 seconds solely from Mdl source)
02 - Laundromat Blues
03 - Giddy Up
04 - Red House
05 - Goin’ South (banter solely from Mdl source)
06 - You Gotta Move (last seconds solely from Mdl source)
Part II: the merged versions
07 - intro & tuning
08 - Laundromat Blues
09 - Giddy Up
10 - Red House
11 - You Gotta Move
We have the same situation presented as with several prior shows: both recordings coming from the same source but in very different quality: a soundboard recording where the 1st one (source #1, coming from nzb) is a little muddy but lossless, the 2nd (source #2, coming from me) has a better sound but has a limited spectrum (lossy?).
Here again the better result is to combinate the 2nd source with the Maidenlane recording.
All the recordings used are edited, declicked and channels equilibrated and of course speed synchronized.
Because “Goin’ South” was not so interesting as merged version I did not keep it… but you get it as mixed version.
As usual I used a lot the infos taken from The Mick Taylor Complete Works Database by Nico Zentgraf: [www.nzentgraf.de
