I applied a slight bass & volume boost to this, the P.A. was very thin sounding that day, not much low end so it's the show
itself & not the recording. ***Please feel free to upload to the LMAA.***
I dug these tapes out & transferred them because to my knowledge they don't really circulate & it was a great day of music.
I tried tracking down the taper Eugene Hu, to get his permission to upload them only to find out that he passed away sometime
last fall from cancer. I didn't know Eugene very well at all, I saw him at various shows over the years and there's a couple of
96' Crowes shows that he taped (7-6-96 & 12-13-96) that I was grateful to have because I was there. When we exchained lists
after taping a show in Anaheim in 04', I was shocked to see that he had been in Ventura and taped the entire days sets. As I
mention below, this day was very special and I was so thankful to have quality recordings of it and the fact that they're
clones of the Master DAT's isn't too shabby either : ) Eugene was just a very nice guy and I was shocked to find out he's passed
away as he was only in his early 40's, it's just very sad. One of the things I've found myself thinking about is the fact that
although I hardly knew him, Eugene is directly responsible for being able to have pieces of my past that I genuinely
cherish and will be able to keep with me always. I hope that it either brings back great memories for those that were there or
creates new ones for those who weren't.
I received these DATs from Eugene about 3+ years ago after running into him at a show in Anaheim, thank you very much!
I know of only one other source for this show even though there were plenty of tapers. This whole day was pretty heavy;
Jerry's birthday less than a year after he passed & was what I thought a great springboard for these guys to get back out
sharing the music with the people. This Ratdog set was one of the most emotional live performances I've ever experienced.
Bobby's inflection in Blackbird is amazing & Looks Like Rain is where I completely lost it. The "You were goooooone...." lyric
just summed up what everyone including Weir were thinking & feeling. It felt like he wasn't just singing it, he was still trying
to understand it himself. I remember wondering how a day like this could end, how was he going to bring this whole thing
to a close & have it be OK? It's not just that Knockin' on Heavens Door was appropriate but by ending the song simply singing
the last lines a'capella and then put his finger to his lips as in there's nothing more to say. The few seconds of silence after this
speak volumes. It was perfect. This may sound very overdramatic to some which is fine, if you were there you know what I'm
talking about and it was something very special. C.M 5-5-08

|Important news from bt.etree.org!
Begining on March 17 2006, all torrents seeded at bt.etree must
include 1) checksum files (.md5, .ffp) that include a checksum for
every lossless audio file in the fileset, and 2) a copy of those
checksums pasted into the torrent description, so everyone can see
them without downloading the fileset.
If you seed a torrent without this information, it will be deleted.
We're telling you this now, so you'll know.
Of course, if there is a problem, we'll try to contact you and help
to fix it. If you don't have a valid e-mail address on your
db.etree.org account, please take a moment to add one. If we can't
contact you, we can't help you, and it be very frustrating for
everyone. Seeders who don't have valid e-mail addresses may find
their logins disabled.
This message will appear on all torrents seeded to bt.etree until
everyone has gotten the message. If your torrent has checksum files
and lists them in the description, thank you! If not, please take a
moment to edit the torrent description to include them. If you have
to add the checksum files from scratch, you'll have to pull this
torrent and start over. Sorry about that.
For help generating checksums, please visit

questions, please post them at http://forums.etree.org and someone
will help you ASAP. Please do NOT e-mail us directly.
Thanks, and happy downloading.
|Very sad to hear about this. I spoke to Eugene a few times on the phone and he was an extremely friendly gentleman. Terrible news.
|Thanks for the old school RD.
I did not know Eugene Hu, but I hope he's still taveling furthur on. RIP
thanks for sharing
|That's terrible news re: Eugene Hu. I didn't know him, but I got a copy of 12/16/94 from him via rec.music.gdead back in the day. Seemed like a nice guy.
|Sorry about your friend :(
|Thanks for the upload. I'll say a prayer for Eugene.

thanks for sharing "
Thanks for adding this to the database, I apprecate it.
|I hope this isnt the guy who used to tape the band I worked for here in So Cal. Was he a long haired asian gentleman?
If so, big bummer.
|^^ That was Eugene. Long, straight black hair, always wore shorts that I remember. Very sorry.
|Wow...bummer. I met Eugene a few times and he was a very nice guy - sorry to hear the news. Life is short - make the best of it.
|I did not know him but I will remember this show even more fondly because of his memory. I was there and it was special.
The energy passes through all of us and it touches all of us and Eugene was part of a special moment. Thank You Eugene and all!
|Right on Chris, thank you very much for sharing. Both the show and the story. And for keeping Eugene's spirit alive. I never knew or even heard of the gentleman until seeing this post. But as a fellow Head and L.A. local, I imagine I had seen him once or twice for sure, maybe even shared a bowl :) It's always nice when someone takes heed of a good person's passing and does them justice with their honor. I only downloaded this show because of your comments and story behind it. A very nice tribute and worth recognizing.
Peace to all and Rest in peace Eugene,
