MRR Interview, New York City 1982-05-15


Received this cdr in trade from trashamericanstyle in 2007, labeled as "1982-01-31 Peppermint Lounge".
Fastforward a year or two later, I picked-up djm5000's copy of Peppermint Lounge dated "1981-09-03".
Different shows......or so I thought.
I sent it to smokeydiablo for editing/remastering.
smokey posted his remaster of djm's 1981-09-03 at punktorrents, where it was promptly discovered to be the same show as trashamericanstyle's 1982-01-31, which I'd already upped.
There is no comparison as far as sound quality is concerned, the trash version wins hands-down.
However, the djm5000 version contains exactly "1" more minute of tape (26:05 to 25:05), a complete "Right Brigade" & includes HR's intro to the show, which offers this hint as to the correct date......

HR : "Yeah, so it's been awhile, yeah! Yeah! We went down to (the) southeast coast, North Carolina and Florida and......AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"

The trashamericanstyle version begins with that "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

There is a recording of the band playing in North Carolina at a venue called The Station, dated 1981-04-??.
HR probably wouldn't be talking about going down to North Carolina in April 1981 at a show taking place in late January 1982.
September 1981 makes more sense + there's a gig flyer that backs up that date (included).

I've also included a seperate folder with tracks 1 & 8 from djm5000's copy, just in case some tech-savy individual downloads this & feels like doing the patch-job.
