This show was part of a whirlwind long weekend. My friend Marcus and I saw Superchunk at the Cat’s Cradle on Wednesday night (April 27), and then took off at 3 AM for Columbia to catch the first of the final four Uncle Tupelo shows. We drove straight through, getting to town at 5 PM. The bill that night was Blue Mountain, the Bottle Rockets playing acoustic and debuting some of the songs from BROOKLYN SIDE, and then UT. UT’s set was pretty standard for this tour, with the highlight being Brian Henneman coming out for the second encore.

Sound is good on this, though it is not quite as crisp as I’d like. The PA at the Blue Note was always “mushy” back in those days, even if you you were right up close.

Sadly no longer on DIME, but so good that I’ll definitely re-seed upon request.
