Marti Jones & Don Dixon - San Francisco 1991

Slim’s
San Francisco, CA
Feb. 26, 1991

soundboard recording (quality Ex--; low-generation tape source; there is, at times, some vocal distortion, and the percussion is occasionally louder than the vocals; otherwise a delightful recording)

Marti Jones & Don Dixon:
A cute couple, yes; but also great music makers

ALL PRAISE to the taper and especially to lilpanda for sharing

REPERCUSSION: Connections between The dB's, Mitch Easter and Don Dixon? Where to start?? Don was one of the N.C. musicians / producers who paved the way for younger guys like Chris, Peter & Mitch. Don & Mitch co-produced R.E.M.'s first two albums. When Don produced Marti Jones' first albums, he recruited Mitch to play guitar and persuaded Marti to record The dB's / Peter Holsapple classic "Lonely Is as Lonely Does." Dixon and Jones married, and are together today, still making music and playing live from time to time.
