Gary Barrett (alfienoakes on Dime) RIP
Gary was a well-known figure in the Glasgow music scene, after working in A1 Sounds / Fopp and Avalanche Records for over 20 years. He also promoted a few shows in the mid 80s.
When minidisc technology emerged, he immediately set himself up for recording and began chronicling all the gigs he attended. This is a record of all the existing MD’s I found in his massive music collection, which his brother asked me to transfer on to hard drive.
Gary passed away suddenly from natural causes in Sept 2006, ironically just after he purchased his first HD recorder and only got to record 2 shows with (Green On Red at King Tut’s being the last one).
Big thanks to jamroom for taking over this project and the many dimebots who have helped him in this massive endeavour. This MD Project is a tribute to Gary's passion for live music and supporting local and small touring bands.
Tom Verlaine – Vocals, Guitar
Billy Ficca – Drums
Fred Smith – Bass, Vocals
Richard Lloyd – Guitar, Vocals
Gary never taped any support acts, if there were any.
Recording notes and sound quality:
Added fades and boosted the volume by +4db. There's some chat to be heard (why?) and an enthusiastic clapper / singer near Gary for a while, but it's still a great listen.
Many thanks to jokingman for completing the setlist.
Please support the band by buying their albums, merch, and by going to see them live. They deserve your cash.
Do NOT sell this recording, trade FREELY!
No art, make you own.
