The Maidenlane Recordings:
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.
In our first series we first published the concerts that had never been circulated in any form. By listening to the others we discovered that many of his alternative recordings were interesting too.
In this second series we publish the “The Maidenlane ALTS” which will feature recordings that are either in better sound quality, more complete or sound differently from previous releases.
In the last series we will present the result of mixes and merges which will be similar to the Frankenstein productions (of my FP-series).
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).

Two recordings were already circulating. The one coming from the box of 4 cds has the better sound but Maidenlane's version could function as a nice and welcome alternative to that recording. So I decided to keep it after reworking it.
The songs are now edited, the recording declicked, amplified, the channels equilibrated.
I deleted some microphone noises in the tuning.
Note sound intensity fluctuations in the beginning of the recording and the very last second of ‘Red House’ is missing.
About ‘Red House’: it starts with a great long blues improvisation (of around 12 minutes).
As usual I used a lot the infos taken from The Mick Taylor Complete Works Database by Nico Zentgraf
