The Maidenlane TAPES:
a Mick Taylor tribute
Long-time Mick Taylor fan Maidenlane taped a number of Mick’s gigs on the East Coast (mainly in New York City) between November 1986 - May 1993 to preserve his own memories. Around the same time Mick Taylor lived in NYC and thus did a lot of concerts there, with his own bands or as a guest artist with other great musicians. Most if not all of Maidenlane’s recordings were never previously circulated among collectors, including a significant number of shows that have never circulated from any source. This will fortunately change now.
Maidenlane said he chose specifically to send these recordings to us to present these gems in the best possible way. Maidenlane will also provide some on-the-scene information and anecdotes from the shows that we will add to these publications. He asked only that we request music lovers to check their closets for recordings, so they can be preserved for study and enjoyment by future generations.
With Maidenlane and nzb we decided to form a team to present these nuggets. At first we propose to publish the shows that had never circulated (later we will study the other recordings).
Of course, we are very grateful to Maidenlane and I also would like to thank nzb for his help (his advice, judgements and expertise have been invaluable to me).

This show is not completely new because a partial video of the show had already been in circulation from that day and finally we are able to attribute it to the 1st show).
I declicked the recording, edited the songs and I equilibrated the channels (+10% or +15% to the left channel).
The recording was decelerated by -5%.
In ‘I Wonder Why’ I deleted noises at 2’07 and corrected sound intensity fluctuations.
Note a gap (tape flip) in ‘Goin’ South’ at 18’26 (I repaired the transition as well as possible).
As usual I used a lot the infos taken from The Mick Taylor Complete Works Database by Nico Zentgraf
