I asked Tony Arnold early on for an inventory, log, duration, dates, artists, publishers, and the correspondence to the Majors going back several years. All of whom passed but released or bought a little taste of the whole archive. All the MultriTrack of Fred Neil consists of 3 hours of Cafe' au Go Go Live plus 10 covers recorded at Bayshore Studios, produced by FredRickPeteHarveyDino for CBS who passed and proceeded to do another version of the same 10 Songs in New Jersey produced by Rick and Fred. One is Jasmine Towne and another is December Dream.
I only heard JasmineTowne on thewww.cafe-au-go-go.com. Hosted by Tony Arnold(King Crimson)...........there was also a special Tim Hardin and a great Karen Dalton, and the spectacular Dave Van Ronk with a British Back Up Studio BAND doin' Nobody Knows you When You're Down and Out" remixed in Dorset, England at Arnies' Shack(Ampex). The analogue remixes and safeties have carefully been stored. They are being worked on for DVD and a compendium of the period incorporating 30-40 artists photographed in 16mm Kodak Colour Ekt 7242 and Digitally transfered to D2 after an edit and colour correction, cleaning, etc..............An on going overseas project since 1991 Videoarts, Japan and airing on NHK/TV Japan. Its been stalled for years and recently revived, faltered, stumbled, Fell only to get up again and try to make it happen.
