The Feelies - Neptune, NJ 1988 + bonus

Green Parrot
Neptune, NJ
September 23, 1988

audience recording (sound quality VG++; full & balanced, a very satisfying recording; each track is smoothly faded out & in to minimize extraneous crowd noise)

The Feelies: now or then; always cool…

BIG THANKS to THE KING OF ROCK for the amazing job he did recording and editing this show

REPERCUSSION: The dB’s have indirect connections to The Feelies. One example: Anton Fier, who for a time was drummer for The Feelies, went on to found The Golden Palominos, which roped in both Chris and Peter for collaborative efforts. The dB’s and The Feelies also have Hoboken, N.J. in common. While they were in the NYC area, The dB’s often played in Hoboken, at times recorded there, and Gene Holder has lived there for many years.

audience recording (sound quality VG-; probably from a multi-gen. tape source, but you’re wanting to hear this because of the historic collaboration, not because it necessarily sounds great…)
