(%) JR's website monkeywrenchradio.org had this song labeled as "No Image" from
Public Image Ltd. After some research, I could not find any evidence of this
(^) I could not identify this song...the only clue I could determine is that it
has a sample from the 1976 movie "Taxi Driver".
FGE Recording Notes:
End of 'Last Exit' and part of 'Better Man' are missing from Neumann source. Encores
of MWFM source were sampled at 32kHz. All resampling, equalizing, and mixing was
done with Cool Edit Pro 2.0 at maximum accuracy settings.
Spacedvest Recording Notes:
FGE originally had converted his tracks using SHN in Sept. 2004, and these tracks
were reconverted into FLAC, to try and keep things simple (the aftershow was in FLAC
format). BLG recently discovered that the 30-second cut during 'Better Man' and the
tape warp problem at the end of 'Corduroy' are *not* present on the Neumann master,
but it didn't seem to make sense to redo everything when the problems were already
fixed nicely by Fred. Kind of ironically, the Monkeywrench aftershow was captured
and "pirated" by San Diego station 91X. The 91X broadcast was recorded and is what
is included in this release. The aftershow has a few minor places where it breaks
up, but overall it is complete (some commercials were omitted), and not too bad in
terms of sound quality.
Artwork and Release Notes:
This release consists of discs 15, 16, 17, and 18 in a fan-created 18-disc boxed set
called "The Monkeywrench Chronicles".
A huge effort has been made to identify all the tracks that were played, with most
of them successfully found, but a couple of them still could not be identified.
The MW songs that are played transcend many different styles and they are almost
always from indie bands and/or by groups that are not very "popular", but they are
of great caliber music. If you have any knowledge of the two tracks marked with a
"?" on disc 3, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can correct
the artwork and try and spread a corrected text file. Any help you can give will
be greatly appreciated!
Extra Special Thanks:
John Reynolds, Dan Leehr, Bill Graham, Michael Morrissey
Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
As is the case typically, the second show in the same venue never disappoints and
this show is no exception and Mike is having a wild night. At the end of 'Tremor
Christ,' Ed comments, "Hello kiddies. Get comfortable; we're gonna be here for a
while." At the end of 'Why Go,' Ed raises his guitar overhead, as if preparing to
smash it, but a tech swipes it from his hands and Ed looks terribly surprised! Ed
clearly shows how he feels about 'Glorified G,' substituting the lyrics,
"... glorified version of I hate this song" twice, looking over his shoulder at
Stone and half smiling. ;) Experiencing tuning problems at the end of 'I Got Shit,'
Ed tosses his guitar and says, "New guitar, please! After all, I am a rock star."
Pretty humorous. 'Lukin' sports an ambient guitar intro, ending with a quick "1234"
leading to a snappy 'Whipping.' Ed returns to the stage on a skateboard for the
first encore, and Stone ges a small fire going at the base of Ed's mic stand. 'Spin
the Black Circle' is introed as "a love song." Mentioning that the two San Diego
shows help raise $50,000 donated to the Surfrider Foundation leads to a comment
about how they had messed up the next song the previous night. Then Ed flubs the
start of 'Leaving Here,' and notes that "it's really a rather hard song to play" but
then they kick into it. This show is a fine conclusion to a wild 1995 tour.
This is being distributed by blackredyellow.com in tandem with
pj.sidewalkcrusaders.com, and is part of a series of the best Pearl Jam shows in
existence. If the artwork is not included, you can find it at blackredyellow.com.
