Many years ago now, JEMS set about to create this matrix after we received a DAT clone of the IEM with which to mix our audience master tape. JEMS NW facility prides itself on making the most of IEM sources (when we actually get to 'em that is), painstakingly cleaning up dropouts and noises. On the other side of the matrix, the now-deceased Kingdome was a concrete monstrosity with notoriously brutal acoustics, but JEMS' audie of the night isn't half bad.

It has been long enough since this matrix was made that I couldn't tell you for certain the IEM source is the same as what was just posted here, but I would be very surprised if it wasn't. At the time we received it the last two songs were missing. I think that has since been corrected but we're too many years down the road to go back and fix it. JEMS audience master, to the best of my knowledge, has not widely circulated if at all, though again, for all I know the audience source still on the tracker is ours. But I do believe this matrix has never circulated and it certainly hasn't been torrented.

Our later matrixes of IEM and audies are better than this (this was surely a scanner recording vs. a true IEM receiver), but I think it is still very appealing. I had a thought to giving it a remaster but after playing around a bit, I decided to leave it as J had originally mastered it since I wasn't sure I was helping. Samples, of course, provided. Curious to see what folks think of this.

Butterking for JEMS
