Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
Urheilutalo "Pyrintö" , Oulu, Finland
March 29, 1984

(not "YNNI", as it is stated in excellent Craig Hopkins´ book, YNNI was a completely different venue)

Audience recording made by M.J. & liberated by my friend E.H.
Recorder: Sony Walkman WM-?? with it´s integrated stereo microphone

Maxell UD 90 Master cassette (no dolby) - Yamaha KX-800 stereo cassette deck - MXR EQ - Philips 880 cd recorder - cdr - .wav - flac

This is a newly discovered master source - 2nd known source for this concert- from this brilliant show here in my hometown.
This version has not circulated before, and it is the better version of those 2 known sources.

I transferred the master using Yamaha deck (adjusted azimuth too) and did slight equalizing (low & high ends) a couple of days ago.
Sound quality on this recording starts with very good+ and end up excellent-, but I find it hard to say.
I am still so excited about the tape, it is much better than I ever dreamed having.

I did some c-cassette trades at the end of the eighties, copies of that 1st source tape have circulated since.

I personally had THE place to wiew the show, I was standing less than one meter in front of the Stevie Ray. I had a lesson in guitar playing that is hard to beat.
I also collected the guitarpicks SRV was‏ dropping during the show (I should have 2 of them somewhere).
This recording was made about 5 meters behind me, a perfect place to record the show. Great stereo image and good consistency throughout the tape.

The set was definitely a hot one, the highlights in my opinion are "The things (That) I used to do, Tin Pan Alley and Little Wing/3rd stone from the Sun medley.
You can hear the audience having a great time on this recording, fortunately not too many talks/screams nearby our dear bootlegger.

You can split it in 2 discs, since the recording is over 80 minutes:

Disc 1
0. Intro music
1. Scuttle buttin´
2. Testify
3. Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)
4. Honey Bee
5. The Things (that) I Used To Do
6. Pride And Joy
7. Tin Pan Alley
8. Mary Had A Little Lamb -(tape flip after this song)
9. Love Struck Baby
10. Texas Flood
11. Rude Mood
Disc 2
12. Little Wing
13. 3rd Stone From The Sun
14. Testify

After the show SRV and Double Trouble were having a jam session upstairs at Seurahuone restaurant (in Craig Hopkins´ great book it was mistakenly supposed to happen in a place called
"Vaakuna", famous hotel - the band probably stayed there), where finnish band Stalker was having their show. Check out the website
SRV, for pictures and stories.
Since I didn´t have a clue about the whole thing, I was not there even though my 18th birthday was the 30th (I could have gone in after midnight!).

Next morning we were having a sport lesson at the downstairs hall in Urheilutalo, and all the garbage from last night was in place in the men´s dressing room.
My friend (I was late -of course) collected all the cut out strings with SRV stringbags happily into his schoolbag. Sometimes at the beginning of the nineties,
I asked him about the stuff.
Too bad, his mother had placed everything in the trash can after he had moved away from home. Thanks Mum!

Crank it up and enjoy!
