Mastering Notes:
- Lots of static between "Angel Of Mercy" and "Tired Man", like the mic was rubbing on Kevin's clothes. Possibly he was moving position?
Minor static is also evident between some of the other songs.
- Tape flip at 1:09 of "I Got That Feeling" - seamlessly spliced but at least a few seconds of music were lost
- Unfortunately Kevin ran out of tape. "Frosty" fades out, and whatever came after is lost.

e Kevin Davie Memorial Series

This series is in memory of Kevin Davie who died suddenly 31 March 2016. Kevin was an avid taper & recorded many concerts mainly in Vancouver,
Victoria & Toronto. All these recordings have been sourced directly from Kevinís master cassettes. With thanks to Mary Davie, Kevinís Mother
for allowing us access to all of Kevinís masters. This is a joint venture between DGB, Dennis Orr, Seth Meister, Leif Henderson & John
MacMillan. Kevin was a dear friend of mine & helped me greatly when I first moved to Canada in June 1994 for which I will forever be grateful.
He had a great sense of humour. He was always happy to remind me of Ray Cooperís percussion solo that I had to endure at the end of all the
Eric Clapton shows I went to in the 90s (there were many!). He did an excellent job in impersonating Mr. Cooper! Kevin had a great taste in
music & shared my love of the blues. We hope that you enjoy these releases & that we can continue Kevinís legacy for many years to come. You
left this world way too soon. Rest in peace my friend.

DGB


Kevin and I had plans to post some of his shows himself. He needed the ratio boost! haha. We had begun to work on some of his shows, when we
had a bit of a dust up over something silly. Sadly, we never had the chance to mend fences together. Hopefully, through this series of shows,
Kevin's memory can be properly honoured and that he can continue to leave a lasting legacy with the recordings that he left behind. I also
hope that when I go beyond this world that my master cassette collection that I haven't gotten to will find a similar new home with trader's
and collectors and fans everywhere, too...
