The first release of live material recorded at the Calkins House. There are certainly far better notes on the tracks than on Cuneiform! More spoken word, acoustic type performances, all recorded November 20th, 1987. Still no information on who put these out, anyone know?
Turns out someone did know:
"The Caulkins House shows were organized by the BigTime Poetry Theatre. The track notes were most likely written by Curt Hopkins. I think the shows were recorded by Steve McQuiddy and Mike Winckler. I seem to remember that Steve had the tapes entered into the UO folklore collection . . . It was winter. The Caulkins House had not yet been remodeled into a restaurant, video store etc and thus was all peeling paint ceilings and holes in the walls. We swept up the dust and plaster chips, and procured some portable heaters which may or may not have had an effect on the temperature of the house. Dan ended the show with Amazing Grace. Then five or ten minutes later, everyone who was left cleaning or lingering did an amazing freezing a cappella reprise of the song."
Thanks to whoever it was that left this comment!
