The Dead Dave Band- late 80s cassette from the Minneapolis suburbs

19 Nov

This cassette definitely has a West Coast- San Francisco guitar-workout vibe going on here, some nice violin and flute is thrown in too. The Dead Dave band performed and recorded during the late 1980s & 1990s. Paul Carlbom, guitarist of The Dead Dave band, claims they were “like Jethro Tull- we’d change the band’s name from time to time”. Their fantastic lead guitarist Dave has since passed on- hence the name here. Members were from Hopkins (Dave), St Louis Park (Paul), and even from Western Wisconsin. I have no song titles to post here- hopefully we can identify the songs with names. Thanks to Stuart Held for providing the tape, and to Paul for the green light to post these songs.
