Welcome to Volume 32 of an exciting master series featuring the master recordings of dime member "tapetyrant". The series will predominately feature captures in the Northeast and Southern California areas. We will touch on multiple genres
with a strong focus on Jazz Fusion, New Wave and Rock.

Tapetyrant was an active taper in the 1980's and much of the 1990's before, like many of us, hanging up the mics. What he captured during that time is uniformly excellent quality, his master tapes have been safely stored and are in pristine condition.
Some shows may circulate from lower generation copies but most have remained uncirculated until now and have never circulated directly from the masters.

Prior to DAT, the heavy lifting was entirely done by a Sony D5 with NAK 300's and taping was serious business, acquiring the best seats possible and working to keep neighbors in check.

Volume 32 features another solid capture from the TapeTyrant master tapes of David Bowie's 2nd night at Madison Square Gardens. We featured this same show as Volume 65 of the Two Of Us Master Series, this share gives us another excellent quality capture of this well documented show.

This same capture has previously appeared from a 1st generation copy, this is the first azimuth adjusted release directly from the TapeTyrant Master tapes, in addition this has been pitch adjusted and (re)mastered for optimal quality. There was very little interference in the way of audience noise but anything there has been removed.

Thanks as always to Goody for once again lending his ear and expertise to our master series, these releases would not be nearly as good without your input.

The biggest thank you to "tapetyrant" for doing such a great job capturing these important shows, for reaching out and entrusting me to present his excellent work for all to enjoy for decades to come we are indebted to his generosity
(tapers don't let those tapes and your hard work get lost to the ages, there are plenty of folks to get in touch with here to help get them out, we're all working to leave no tape behind).

Artwork and samples included.
