"Mason B. Taylor was a taper from Chicago that recorded concerts by many
bands in the Chicagoland area and on Dead tours. He used a Nakamichi
550 with Nakamichi 300 mics with shotgun capsules for most of his
earlier recordings. In later years he used Sony D-5 and Sony D-3
cassette recorders with Nakamichi 300 mics.
Mason captured spectacular musical moments and loved to share them with
his closest friends. In honor of Mason and all the love he put into his
recordings we are now able to share these moments with those who can
appreciate them most.
As the shows get uploaded we would love for you to share your stories
about the epic times the music evokes so we can all dial back into that
moment when the magic was happening.
Thanks to Mason’s family and his Chicago and Cleveland friends for opening up Mason’s Jar…"
