NOTE ABOUT RECORDING:
This was my first attempt at recording at a show, with HUGE THANKS to Andrew Butler for loaning the gear! And another HUGE THANKS to Dave Kent, Billy Mulvey, and Co. and the Ottawa Jazz Fest volunteers + crew for arranging/allowing the recording to happen (and of course, MMW themselves!). The sound was perfect for the earlier acts with clear clean music coming out the two speakers at the lip of the stage directly in front of where we were sitting in the front row, especially for the set of Ralph Towner (guitar) & Paolo Fresu (trumpet + flugelhorn) -- check these guys out!
So we weren't hearing the sound coming out of the main stacks speakers -- which I gathered also sounded amazing. When MMW started there was this incredibly horrendous boom eminating from their sound right from the first beat, but nobody in the crew seemed to notice -- it was literally shaking our chests but not in a good way. It soon became apparent that Billly's kick drum was WAY TOO LOUD in the mix coming out of those two stage lip speakers we were hearing (and possibly an onstage amp too?) and it was like that all night. As a result, I had to turn the levels down, as well as the Fostex's equivalent of a built-in preamp, so the kick drum boom wasn't peaking way high which means the rest of the instruments are sitting in a low but clear level in the mix.
Tom then took the recording and tried to meet a happy medium bringing the other instruments up in the mix a bit, making them brighter, while softening the boom from the kick drum making this a much better listen, albeit different from what we actually heard because the kick drum was just BOOMING all night! HA! So another HUGE THANKS to Tom Luhrs for smoothing/softening the boom. The opening tune, Agmatia, where the kick drum boom really took me off guard is still pretty heavy at first, and the recording is still *quite* bassy, but I've enjoyed listening much more since Tom worked his magic.

|-- THE SHACK PROJECT --
This is an effort to seed all existing MMW shows, and yes, preserving the original SHN/FLAC filesets. The seeding will proceed chronologically for the most part, with exceptions as we feel the vibe to seed other gigs from other times.
Thanks to MMW for allowing their music to be recorded....really, thank you.
Huge thanks goes out to the tapers, without whom this wouldn't be possible...and those that have helped get the tunes to our ears.
And thanks to the other 5 guys I've dragged into this and who seem committed to the cause: Louie, Mike Tom, Todd & Jeff....we're all listening to these shows and hopefully circulating the best versions.
All shows listed here in SHN/FLAC will be seeded:
These shows will be seeded as well, either by me or by one of a few other kind souls:
Shows listed here circulate in some manner. We are looking for as close to the original source as we can get so if you can help out with any of the following, we'd all appreciate it:
http://db.etree.org/duggy/mmwneeds (this list is in the process of being compiled...maybe forever?)
I've started a thread over here for us to be able to discuss this project:
enjoy the grooves,
Louie, Mike, Tom, Todd, Jeff & dug
***FOR ALL YOUR SETLIST NEEDS***
MMW Performance History @ http://mmwhistory.com - this is a fantastic resource that allows you to look at info on gigs by MMW and related side projects and guest appearances; big thanks to Tom for creating this page.
We are actively updating all setlists as we seed, and also others outside the particular order of the project.
db.etree is also being updated in tandem with the updates to Tom's pages -- both the source and show pages.
|This is a kicking festival set, spoiled a bit for me by that damn BOOMY bass drum. It was just too bad ... otherwise, the recording sounds quite nice I think which I credit to Butler's gear ... I just followed his directions.
Anyway, I was happy to hear Agmatia as I think they should play that Zaebos material WAY MORE! The set was light on Improv, but full of some fire and the crowd seemed to dig more and more as the set went on. A nice and loose Coconut Boogaloo was a high point for me and coupled with JLIPI was reminicent of older times ... this was the first time I caught Junkyard at a show so that was VERY cool too ... Nostalgia was a nice treat -- pretty sure there's no Angel Race in there! HA! A small drum break for Billy though ... ITAHTLMJ is the first MMW tune I remember hearing, and I just love it any time and Cloud Wars is a nice heavy closer ...
It was fun when the crowd sang Happy B-Day to John! And Chubb Sub was again a fun echo back in time ...
A nice mix of old and new in here ...
|Thank you Duggy!
|And, because I'm an IDIOT, I neglected to put the actual show date in the text file itself! D'oh!
June 28th/2010 ... obviously ... I've added it above, but you will all need to add it to your own text files ...
What's the .fr all about on the folder?
Just set your iPod to "Treble Booster" and it's all good.

|Thanks for your efforts Dug!
You too Tom!
|"What's the .fr all about on the folder?"

|thanks duggy - that was a fun listen.
hot coconut - they should play that more (along with 5000 other tunes)
-pretty sure i heard a few bars of main angel race chorus in the Nostalgia.
