Comments
Audience recording of The Pretenders' show at Berkeley's Greek Theatre on 1 September 1984. Good show, and a very good clear recording (there is occasional intrusion from audience members, but nothing too bad). There are a few gaps - Track 5 at 5:12, Track 7 at 5:30, the end of Track 9. The start of track 10 is missing.

Lineage:
Master recorded using a Sony D-6 > 1st gen cassette > WAV capture M-Audio > Adobe Audition

Notes:
"For years I've treasured this recording, and I'm certain that you'll enjoy the amazing quality. My late friend Walter the K was a prolific taper, always waxing enthusiastic about his interests, whether the Grateful Dead or Pearl Jam. And he was a fine and steady hand on the mic and levels, too: If you're a Springsteen fan and have heard CC's "Oakland Night", that's Walt's master (a low-generation tape was used without Walt's permission, and given his "share it for free, and freely" ethos, it's probably good that he never found out!). So props to the Cat for good taste in what to bootleg, in any event.

"Coincidentally, we met while waiting in line for tickets for that show, and gushed about the Pretenders gig we'd seen a few weeks before. Walt offered to send me a copy, which he did. Before Chrissie sings a note of "Time the Avenger", this one will knock your Aunt Connie's socks off. It's clear, close, and exceptionally clean. I've never seen any other shows from this leg in circulation (common, however, are the FM broadcast from L.A.'s Universal Amphitheater; and a show from Detroit shown on MTV - those are from the first leg of the tour earlier that year). Walt always used a D-6, but I haven't any idea regarding the mic (or perhaps mics) he used.

"About the show itself: the second of two nights in Berkeley, with Simple Minds opening. The new line-up had really jelled after months on the road, and presented a rearranged set to go with their dynamite performance. "Birds of Paradise" appears by request (before the gig, Chrissie said she'd try, but wasn't sure because she'd forgotten the chords at a recent gig at Red Rocks), and the band rips through Jimi Hendrix's "Roomful of Mirrors" in the encore. Lots of songs from that year's triumphant and dignified "Learning to Crawl," and plenty of older favorites from the first two albums.

"Walt got nearly the whole show (save for a bit of "Tattooed Love Boys"). Note that "Brass in Pocket" did not get played, which didn't occur to me until I was preparing the files and wondered where it was. It had been slated, but the handwritten set list confirms that "Stop Your Sobbing" appeared in its place). The only thing I've done to the 1st generation tape is normalize to 95 percent, using Adobe Audition. No EQ necessary, really. To my ears, it still sounds like a perfect recording.

"Walt passed away two years ago. He was a good and generous friend, and he broadened my musical horizons. It's an honour to share one of his recordings, truly a great one. Roll tape, brother."
