The Jerry Miller and Terry Haggerty band – Live at Ashkenaz, Berkeley, January 11, 2013.
This show is more energetic and longer and than their previous show at Ashkenaz on September 6, 2012. Now they have more songs and more practice and they are getting more popular with more dates including Sunday, January 13, 2013 at Biscuits and Blues in San Francisco
This is recorded at 24 bit, 96khz. Only the first 30 seconds of the first song is missing. Part 1 and 2 is actually the first set split in two because it was more than 90 minutes. The whole show is about 3 hours.
updated January 16, 2013, new EQ with a flatter and brighter sound using a parametric equalizer at the WAV level , slight drop @ 200hz and slight up curve +5db above 3khz. Original unequalized recording is at the bottom

Vince Wallace, live at the Bulldog Cafe, Oakland, California February 10, 2002
this was originally recorded on cassette and is 20 minutes long. The first 6 minutes are just slightly overloaded on the recorder input and clears up after 6 minutes
also appearing here is saxophonist Woody Parker
Doug Sahm’s Phantom Playboys, October, 7, 2012, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass
This is something special. Doug Sahm was the founder of the Sir Douglas Quintet and their big hit (at least here in SF) was Mendocino in 1969. Even though Doug Sahm was from Texas, he came to San Francisco in the 60′s to play music. Sahm died in 1999, but the legacy lives on because Boz Scaggs brought a bunch of Texas music veterans to San Francisco for apparently a one time only event for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and pulled it off with flying colors. All of these musicians already have their own tour schedule, including Scaggs, so this could not have been easy and it may never happen again
The band that played HSB was DOUG SAHM’S PHANTOM PLAYBOYS featuring: Dave Alvin, Steve Earle, Delbert McCLinton, Boz Scaggs, Jimmie Vaughan..
recorded at 24 bit/96khz
