Thanks drifter. :)
I'm pretty stoked about getting to hear a new recording from the OG line-up myself.

This makes the third or fourth one I've flushed out since I started doing work on the tour dates and it never ceases to amaze me what's lurking out there to be found.

The guy who recorded this show (Jim) says it "sounds terrible" but I guess we'll all hear for ourselves soon.

I just got a message from Jim and this show is in the mail! :cool:
I guess I misunderstood him and it turns out this is a SBD recording and not an audience recording.
So I don't further confuse things this is what he had to say.
Hi Michael,

I finally got the disc in the mail to you today. The recording came from a friend of mine who was friends with the guy running the soundboard. The recording is good, but the mix isn't (the symbols are way to high in the mix).

One of the best parts of the show occurred during Pigs In Zen when Perry says, "So this is where REM comes from?" At that point half the crowd applauded. Then he says, "I don't give a f**k." And the other half applauded. A classic moment indeed.

Anyway, I forgot to include a track listing so here it is:

Jane's Addiction

1989-02-11
Uptown Lounge
Athens, GA

SBD > 3rd Gen Cassette > CD Wave

1. Up The Beach
2. Whores
3. 1%
4. Idiots Rule
5. Had A Dad

10. Pigs In Zen
11. Summertime Rolls
12. Ocean Size
13. Mountain Song

You should see it in the mail in the next couple of days. Enjoy!

Nope I'm not kidding Charles.
That is Jim's exact message to me.

Like I said I guess it was just me misunderstanding him and thinking it was an audience recording.
I'm rather shocked by this turn of events myself but extremely pleased just the same. :yikes: :yeay: :oldtimer:

Na, I want a cookie. :lol:

Seriously though, all credit should go to Jim for offering to share this with all of us. :applause:
It's just dumb luck on my part that this stuff falls into my lap as a result of tour dates work I do.
Not that I'm complaining.

The Postman has made me very happy today. :biggrin:
I've not had a chance to listen yet but plan to at some point this evening and will report back.

Look for a download of this show in the appropriate section in the next day or two.

The symbols are very annoying as Jim said but I'm still enjoying the recording.
You can EQ them down some but they are still omnipresent to the point of distraction at times.

This is hilarious and as a bonus we get to hear Perry rip George H. a new one yet again. :lol:

The setlist above is spot on.
Bobhaus is blowing me away at the moment.
I love the way Perry sings the beginning part on this tune.

I'm working on some EAC tweaks and as soon as I finish up I'm going to rip, flac, zip, and upload.
