Notes by the taper:
The last Megadeth concert I recorded and posted here, I said that I've grown a little tired of them. Well, this has put an end to Megadeth concerts for me. The same old songs played to death in previous tours continued to be played to death but now in lower keys to accommodate Dave's weary voice. Tempos somewhat slowed for some tunes. It's just not what it used to be. Sorry to all my fellow Megadeth fans out there but MegaDave has become just ... Dave. It's time to throw in the towel. The only entertaining thing about this concert for me was Dave occasionally ripping into the fans (who deserved it, of course). It was hilarious and everyone else around me thought the same. 

The sound guy, on the other hand, was a complete dickhead. Absolutely ZERO capability. You will find Dave's vocals are all over the place, mostly non-existent. Zero control over the dynamics, phasing and can't even find the damn fader to open the bloody mic!!!!!!! Sorry, I can only do so much. The guitars were also all over the place, mostly too harsh. Sorry, I can only do so much with that too. The kick drums, as friggin' always, were just too damn boomy and Dave E's bass was somewhere in that mix but again, I can only do so much. 

Overall, I give the sound a rating of D. It sucks. I only went to record it for those who requested it. Take a listen to the sample and if it still whets your appetite, do as you please. All feedback appreciated as always.

notes There will likely be some doubt about the show date, but I'm fairly certain that the dates were rearranged due to the illness that was going on with Buck and Eric. I remember calling a friend the next day, saying that the shows in Columbus and Dayton might be cancelled due to their poor health. They weren't, but perhaps should have been. Some bands brag about how few shows they've had to cancel, but perhaps it's not always something to be proud of. As in this case.

About About this recording
Early 1982, Jaco formed his own Word of Mouth Big Band, named after the title of his first Warner Brothers solo album. The big band was filled with some of the finest studio musicians, some old timers Jaco worked with before, and some newcomers. We didn't yet know it, but Jaco had left Weather Report and wouldn't return. To all of us, this was THE concert everybody anticipated.

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion isn't the best venue for a loud band; the Pavilion is better suited and home to the winter seasons of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. My seats weren't great, I was sitting slightly under the overhanging balcony. I learned in recording arts school, this might be the worst sounding spot in any auditorium. As I remember, my recording didn't sound that great. But I always knew there were other recordings of this show.

After my master tape was stolen in 1986, I was given a first generation copy from another source. I vaguely remember being told this recording was made about a dozen rows back, sitting right in front of the speakers. That's a great place to tape, and this copy sounded much better than I remember mine ever sounded.

In 2011 I finally met the guy who recorded the show, and I've been digitally archiving his entire tape collection ever since. So in 2011, my first generation copy was upgraded to the original master recording made on his Sony TC-D5M. The master sounds fantastic. While working on the show, I could see the benefits of the Nakamichi over the Sony decks. I could see on the sonogram that the Sony deck really falls off after 15 Khz, while the Nakamichi doesn't fall off until 20 Khz or beyond. But it doesn't matter because I can't hear that high anyways!

Jaco played in his usual manic style. We didn't know at the time he was suffering from bipolar disorder, and when I look back and hear the music today, I can certainly hear micro bursts of excessive creativity that seem to be short duration. But Jaco's playing is great; it's fantastic. When he plays Domingo, it's non-stop frenetic playing. There was a bad turn during Fannie Mae. I fixed it best I could, and most people probably won't even notice how I stitched it back together.

I'm sure many of you already have this show, as I've seen it on the torrent sites a few times before. I've even released my own version of the first generation copy. But today is an upgrade to master tape status!

Last but not least...Now that I have access to this master tape, there was one more surprise in store. When I was digging through my benefactor's boxes of master tapes, I also found a recording for the following night. The following night recording is only 95% complete, which probably explains why I don't think I've ever seen it circulate in any taping circles.
