GREEN ON RED
Charlottesville 1985 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Mineshaft Cellar, 1106/1107 West Main Street, Charlottesville, Virginia; September 9, 1985. Very good mono soundboard.

From the collection of KNEES. Thanks to Les_Mountain for sharing the show at Dime.

+ + + + +

Warts: Repaired dull-spots & dropouts but surely missed a few. Very slight distortion/buzz in some places. #25 tape flip cut at 2 mins on master so removed 20secs&spliced seamlessly at end of song.

Thanks to the original taper & traders! Sincere thanks to whomever uploads this for me. Corrections welcome. Keith Mitchell on drums intro’d as having “joined the band the previous Saturday” (so 3rd night?), or he’d been in the band nine days or so, perhaps with some rehearsals before they started their East Coast tour in early Sept. This can presumably be verified by careful listening of the Hoboken 1985-09-05 or NYC 1985-09-06 tapes & see if Mitchell is playing or whether Alex MacNicol bailed after NYC.

This show really points nicely to the tremendous maturity & versatility this band already had at a young age - rather extraordinary in many ways, just check out Dan’s delivery in the first couple of songs - most any singer would be jealous. Slightly odd mix, as instrument balance isn’t really correct, the guitar (unbelievably tasty leads!) somewhat low in mix in parts, drums loud overall, but damn… NICE sounds… GonR changed my world in this era - leaders of the Americana-vibed segment of the Paisley reconstruction crew. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace.

Yrs truly, Knees

    By Nelson on Jul 16, 2021

  30. Derrick, I think if Terry Melcher signed Manson to a contract, I dont think we would of had the sharon tate killing. He was only 5′2″ tall. Tex Watson was the one who did al the killing.
