Free” 11.9.98 I

A crunchy first half “Free” that gets forgotten due to the monstrosity of the second set; a reminder of what the jam once was.

  7. Corey Says:

    just received the manchester and atlantic city remastered cds in the mail. they sound real nice. stepped up the packaging too, with pictures and an easier cd removal than the older ones. digging the curtain with. fun to pick your head out of the crowd photo…
    the greek ones sound the best to me, overall.

    carry on.

    Dark star crashes
    pouring its light
    into ashes

    Reason tatters
    the forces tear loose
    from the axis

    Searchlight casting
    for faults in the
    clouds of delusion

    shall we go,
    you and I
    While we can?
    Through
    the transitive nightfall
    of diamonds

  9. Robear Says:

    stop singing about my macbook mango!

  10. Mulitbeast Says:

    @Cory- I was considering buying the Manchester remaster. So you are saying it is worth it? Who is gonna buy the Utica Box?

  11. Mulitbeast Says:

    yep. this UIC gin is sick.
    Right up there with my fav 7.29.98 Gin.

  12. plord Says:

    What do you mean, “gonna buy” kemosabe?

    Bought it (and Jamchester). Done did. Will report.

  13. Kaveh Says:

    @Mitch: Fired up the Dark Star from 06.10.73 when I got to work this morning. $$$$$

  14. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    c’mon, mitch.

    you know you like this one better

    disco beat ftw

    that other one is waaaaaay toooooo jammy, right BNCB?

  15. kenny powers Says:

    are the hard copy remasters the same whether you get them from Dry Goods or Amazon? No exclusive bonus tracks or anything, right?

  16. kenny powers Says:

    smart move for them to have unique cover art instead of the same ticket stub art as the non-remasters. some extra polish, if you will.

    i don’t think i’ve listened back to a note of A.C. since i was there. that’ll have to change soon. Especially since i grabbed the entire Little Feat remastered discography off the ‘Nerd recently….

  17. Bad Nirvana Cover Band Says:

    11/2/98

    Best. Encore. Ever.

  18. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    @BNCB
    don’t forget 5.9.92 Best. Tease. In. Harpua. Ever.

  19. Lycanthropist Says:

    been lovin these jams of the day

    looks like UIC 98 is a must have huh?

  20. Jtran Says:

    This UIC is definitely up there with the Went and Riverport as far as Gins go.

    Hard to pick a favorite.

  21. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeh that gin is top notch without a doubt

  22. kenny powers Says:

    y’all are making me want to embark on a fall ’98 ambient space jam binge.

  23. Lycanthropist Says:

    ill join you KP

    i am pretty uneducated in 98, particularly the fall

  24. Corey Says:

    @multibeast, I second @plord. already purchased the utica shenanigans.
    I’m biased, as I was down front, got a ticket from a fellow fan…I love the product, hate mp3s, and love building the collection. hate is a strong word, true, but I don’t listen to them much at all.

    That said, I think the sound of the Greek remasters is the warmest, feel like you’re there (and I was) feel….my favorite remaster is 8.6, the better show. sorry 3rd nighters.

    But, love the sound coming through. Definitely hear the rock and roll vibe throughout.
    Haven’t listened to all of it…yet. Prefer the venue pictures enveloping the package over the way they brown-bagged it, with a sticker where my picture (should be).

    So I say buy it. If you are cool with compromised sound, do yourself a favor and pick up the Greek remasters. Turn them up (not much, as they’re crackling with life), and prepare to smile. To me, the differences in warmth between Manch and the Greek are purely room related. The sound at the Greek was splendid.

    Back to Utica…having the hippest show of the year to watch and listen, well that’s a simple decision for me. For those that were there, the year was 1993. This was turn to the person next to you and give the universal wtf look, jaw on floor, etc…for the whole night. Find some extra quarters in the jar, get it and see/hear the fun. It was a lot of it.

    All five extant UIC shows are essential listening. I’d say the second set of the first one (6-18-94) is the best of the lot.
