Mad Season: 04-29-1995

I'm feeling nostalgic this morning for the good ol' days of the early/mid 90's. You know, when a "super group" was something worth getting excited about.

Mad Season is one of the most famous super groups to come from the late 80's/early '90s Seattle music scene, featuring Layne Staley from Alice In Chains on vocals, Mike McCready from Pearl Jam on guitar, Barrett Martin from Screaming Trees on drums, and John Baker Saunders from The Walkabouts on bass. Mark Lanegan guested on vocals for two tracks on their only album, 1995's Above. If you don't own that album and you're a fan of the music that came out of the Seattle area in the early 90's you need to go to the record store today.

This show was Mad Season' final live performance. I used a couple of sources to put together a high quality reconstruction of the show. Some of these songs were released on the video Live At The Moore Theater in 1995. As far as I know, there is no recording of the missing third track, "Artificial Red", out there for consumption.
