Liberation – a rocking gospel band recorded in the Mass. Corrections Facilities, Shirley, MA 1981?

Old and New Dreams – Dewey Redmond, Charlie Haden, Ed Blackwell, Don Cherry – wonderfully grooving jazz                June 8, 1982

recorded at Jonathan Swifts Nightclub in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA where I was house sound for 5 years from 1978-1983. It was a basement club with 250 capacity (that was often ignored), with a long narrow room and low cement ceilings. With such a wide variety of acts coming through there, it was a great place to cut my teeth doing live sound.

The recordings were done using the Sony MC-939 M/S stereo mic taped to the ceiling in the left/center of the room at the mixing board location half way back in the room and recorded onto a Sony Walkman Pro cassette deck.
