Freelance, Holly Inn Gig
21 songs from 2-track cassette tapes
This group of 21 songs is from a gig at the Holly Inn in July 1984 (Mount Holly Springs, PA). Unlike the vast majority of Freelance gigs, this gig was open to the public.
Dave Bollinger - trumpet, flugelhorn & vocal
Steve Weihbrecht - trumpet & vocal
Frank Leister - guitar
Eckhard Rubinic- keyboards
Joe Vajda - bass
Jeff Shoop - drums & vocal
There were three cassette tapes, each with different portions of the gig (including some overlapping coverage, so I was able to pick the best quality source material). However, none of the tapes were in good shape. Remastering involved varying the speed of the original tapes on a song-by-song basis (to get the songs closer to original pitch), and then processing with noise reduction, equalization, compression, and limiting.
