On September 23rd, 1999, Son Volt played at Tramps. When I took this tape out of its case, I discovered that the reel was cut. Thankfully, I was able to patch it back together with some scissors and scotch tape. You can hear the weird-ish scotch tape-y part in the beginning, but aside from that, the rest of the tape was salvaged!
This show was a part of Son Volt’s final tour before the band’s first hiatus. Right after the conclusion of this tour, Jay Farrar announced that he’d be pursuing a solo career. Farrar would release two full-lengths in 2001 and 2003 before resurrecting Son Volt with a new backing band in 2005.
