Your favorite AUDs?

Post by patchthenation » Sun Nov 24, 2019 4:18 pm

I know we have been pretty blessed in the past decade, with more official releases than ever before and a treasure trove of soundboards on Archive. But a lot of Heads still seek the top-notch AUD copies of their favorite shows. Hell, even Charlie Miller remasters AUD copies instead of solely boards.

What are your favorite audience tapes to check out, for those who aren't that well acquainted? Could just be sentimental value because you ran it ragged in your Jeep cassette player all of 1984, or maybe it was the most crispy AUD tape you can remember. I'm always intrigued by stories too! :rockon :listen

Can't guarantee everyone's favorite aud copy will be on Archive, but I will do my best to post some links from your suggestions!

LOVE this thread. Listening to Bones 9/6/80. Smokin'. Here is great Matrix:



And yes, the Close Encounters show and AUD tape were legendary in the PNW. We all had it. It was coveted. It was crispy. It was awesome.

So I have two from 1981 for y'all to check out:

3/10/81 MSG the AUD is AMAZING:



Listen to Jerry at the end of FOTM, he absolutely GOES OFF. Damn he was so fucking good and boy do I miss that shit!!!!!

Here is a really nice Matrix:




9/12/81 Greek Theater. The Greek was also universally known for producing amazing AUD tapes. It all started with these 1981 shows.

YOU HAVE to LISTEN to CC RIDER. Both Bob and Jerry TOTALLY go off and AUD just screams the whole way. Was just 15 and missed these. 83 and on I was there.



Peace!!!!

Here's a pretty tasty one I came across today. Sounds like you're right there! Another non-stop > second set! Can't go wrong with Dupree's, Might as Well, and a double Jerry encore! Especially when one is a Dylan tune :listen 6/15/85 at the Greek:



I: Touch Of Grey, Minglewood Blues, Friend Of The Devil, Cassidy > Dupree's Diamond Blues, Me & My Uncle > Big River > Might As Well
II: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider > Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance > Terrapin Station > Drums > Space > The Wheel > Gimme Some Lovin' > Throwing Stones > Not Fade Away, E: She Belongs To Me, U.S. Blues

5/25/74 Jeremy Witt Audience Recording. Wonderful sound with great separation. Vocals sound f’n awesome, a lot of people didn’t like the sound those WOS vocal mics gave but I think they sound awesome! Like a crackly 50s am radio broadcaster cutting in and out. Fun fact too, apparently the dudes buried the tape deck day before the show to get it in. Lol! Killer everything, but the China>Rider’ll singe your eyebrows.

9/7/85 Red Rocks, Oade brothers. killer show. Weird as hell opening..

4/23/77 Dave Weider Aud. One of my fave first sets. Just straight energy burned onto cassette. Early Scarlet/Fire and Estimated that are just fantastic. Very good Cassidy, sugaree and It’s all Over Now (I know but listen to that solo!!) not even getting into the second set, that’s a beast of its own.

Just ones I’ve been digging recently! Love me a good tasty Aud! I’ll be checking out the ones in listed thus far for sure!

The Jerry Garcia Band shows in Feb 1980 have some of the best aud recordings I've ever heard.

Generally I prefer matrix recordings to sbds. Hunter Seamons are top notch
Couple shots of whiskey women around here start looking good

Witt also has a lengthy and interesting story along with this show: https://archive.org/details/gd1974-05-2 ... 301.flac16
