TOURISM ON TOUR: The dB's at Niagra Falls

audience recording (sound quality VG; iffy sound from the tape source, but I did some tweaking in Audacity, and it’s now quite listenable — might even be mistaken for a lower-quality soundboard recording; try the sample)

01 Neverland (cuts in)

*Track 19 is a demo for a song written and  sung by Gene Holder's wife, Myra. A finished version of the song appeared years later on Myra's solo album, Four Mile Road (produced by Mr. Chris Stamey + 1 track by Mitch). 


NOTE: Many of the demos in the set as I received them are not included in the above. Categories of demos not included here: 
1) Ones I already shared in the ‘Like This’ Revisited post
2) Demos the same (or nearly the same) as those on the Ride the Wild Tom-Tom official release; 
3) Demos with Chris on lead vocals (per an earlier request from him).
 
The dB’s (1984 live show line-up):
Rick Wagner - bass
Gene Holder - guitar
Will Rigby - drums
Peter Holsapple – guitar, vocals

  1. Thanks so much for all the great commercially unreleased music, and easy downloading!

    I love The dB's and Will Rigby's writing as well as playing, and have very similar tastes!
