Freelance, Holly Inn Gig

July 1984

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.
