San Rafael, CA
1970 09 26

~~ from 2nd gen AUD R2R tape ~~

We are very proud to present to the Zappateers community the second night of a two night run at Pepperland, San Rafael, California. Of course the previous night's concert has been widely circulated for some time. The September 26th date however has been known to collectors for many years but has been rarely heard until now. Huge thanks goes out to TheNewGuy for collecting, saving, temporarily losing, then finding again (thank God!) and finally for sharing his 2nd generation reel copy with all of us. Right on man! Very much appreciated. Another huge thanks to musigny23 for firing up the Revox and running a transfer for the preparation of this seed.

Although not a crystal clear recording, I think the "B-" rating in FZShows may be a tad harsh, especially for a 1970 audience tape. I give it a solid "B". The condition of the 47 year old reel was a little worn, but musigny23 got a nice transfer with amazingly very few flaws and drop outs. In fact, much of the sound issues to me sound more like seemingly constant feed back through the PA during the vocal sections, especially in the second set. It is also a stereo recording. However, the right channel had very high levels of hiss that were so harsh we almost considered eliminating the right channel all together. TheNewGuy even provided an earlier transfer he had done where he had done just that and had it in mono. While a nice listen, we decided to do our best with the raw transfer musigny23 did and do some volume mix adjustment. Flambay adjusted the right channel volume mix by adding in more of the left channel volume (side A: 75% volume level left/50% volume level right; Side B: 90% volume level left/20% volume level right). The left channel was left intact with no adjustments. I think the result is pretty damn good and hope you'll agree. Besides, this is a rare tape.

Although a fairly typical Mothers set from this era, the band seems to be in a good mood and the audience is having a great time. Transport yourself back to 1970 Bay area California and dig the show.

Beautiful! Thanks a lot!!

Carnaby clothes, I reshaped my nose,
Plastic surgery's best.
To cut down my weight off comes my left leg.
I pass a swimming costume test.

Look out there's a monster coming!
