In 1971, the Lawrence, Kansas quartet Tide embarked on a major recording project at Cavern Sounds. The resulting LP, Almost Live saw release on the local indie Mouth Music, selling comfortably into the quadruple digits, even securing shelf space at K-Mart for a spell. The individual members were virtuosic and their music was immense (save for the leisurely “I Wish It Hadn’t Ended That Way” featured on Local Customs: Cavern Sounds). On the eve of the band’s disintegration, General Motors approached the group about filming a documentary to serve as a case study in rock economics. The result is Fences and Gates, a 30-minute feature with some fancy camera work, stellar tunes, and even some interior shots of Cavern Sounds. Now, thanks to the Internet, Fences and Gates can be viewed in its entirety on Youtube, because, as we mentioned before, the Internet. Local Customs: Cavern Sounds sees worldwide release next Tuesday.
