Welcome to Volume 11 of our 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 and his master tapes have been safely stored, the first batch 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.
This one came as an unexpected surprise, Sade Adu's second tour supporting the triple platinum "Promise" and her fist visit to Boston.
As with Volume's 1 - 10, TapeTyrant once again does a brilliant job capturing the performance, this time from the 3rd or 4th row.
Sade is the personification of cool, laid-back and aloof with a killer band.
The "Promise" tour is terribly under represented with live recordings, there is a circulating FM but tapers were apparently not flocking to her shows so it's nice to add a previously uncirculated audience capture of a full show in excellent quality.
Thanks to Goody for his continued pitch excellence and of course "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).
