As far as I know, these are the bootlegs in existence, created by technically savvy fans of the Punk Monk, myself included. Special thanks to Will of the FABULOUS Stu Art site for the majority of the work here (and certainly the best looking ones).

FYI: CD Dimensions for an art program like Photoshop:
front cover: 4.75″ x 4.75″
back cover: 5.875″ x 4.625″
resolution: 200
Please check to see if your software is displaying the proper dimensions before printing.

I recommend “hp premium photo paper, glossy, 9 mil,” particularly if you are using an HP printer. I’ve found that using HP paper in an HP printer makes a huge difference, not only in superior color, but also in getting authentic (tint-free) shades of grey on the black and white parts of the image.

Stuart Davis’ Sept 21, 2002 show at
Norshor Theater in Duluth, MN.
Photos are by Mike Bernal, who snapped the pics a few days later at a show in Boulder. Presumably Stu looked about the same. Dig the writing on the guitar. Presumably some kind of ancient language, like Dutch or something. Someone asks Stu during the show what the writing on his guitar is, so these pics work for this night as well as could be.
Say, why am I putting the track lists of two-disc sets together in one unbroken column, you may be asking yourself. The reason is, I’m planning for the future, when we will be ditching all these multiple-CDs in favor of single DVD-Rs. Though the track list numbers may be distracting at that future-time, the single column of text will at least present the gig as one whole, unbroken set, which is (presumably) how it went down. Presumably. And if that is all we have to worry about in that future time, we shall be blessed indeed.

Stuart Davis’ June 24, 2002 show at The Point, Bryn Mawr, PA.
Recreating the feel of The Late Stuart Davis, which was about to be released. In fact the inner cover (not shown below, but included as part of the download of the front cover) includes the eulogy that Peppermint sent out to announce this leg of the tour. Art sources: Portrait of Stu is enlarged from the cover of TLSD, while the pattern behind him is a lotus flower imprinted on a 5th Century (BC) Persian Repousse bowl. I don’t know what “Repousse” is…probably some kind of soup. Maybe cereal. Anyhow, this cover came precariously close to Sarah McLaughlin territory but I think it veered off in time. P.S. Thanks to Kismet for the back cover concept.

Stuart Davis’ December 2, 2000 show at Karl’s in Morris, MN.
Remember that time when Stuart was driving through the desert and the devi Parvati (who represents One-ness) was hitch-hiking (apparently she was fed up, or wanted to be by herself for awhile, tired as she was of all the divisiveness in the world) and Stu picked her up and gave her a ride — and in so doing, brought some balance to the earth? Well me neither but I thought it might make a cute cover. This is the last cover with Stuart’s van in it, since he reports during this show that the transmission went.
This is a front cover (with a fold) because the recording is only 1 cd in length so you could use a single slim case for it and you won’t need a back cover panel.

Stuart Davis’ September 17, 1999 show at Karl’s in Morris, MN.
Images (and on the back cover, the layout as well) are from the Bright Apocalypse presskit; BA was about to be released at the time of this show.
This cover is designed for a slim 2-disc case, so please note you’ll need to download both the front cover and the back cover.

Stuart Davis’ June 19, 1999 show at the Mill in Iowa City.
This live disc was originally titled “Eclipse” by someone and I don’t know why; there may be other cover art out there that explains it. For my cover I kept the title but went with a religious theme, even though it sounds like BS to me that Eve was to blame. Note that the fruit that Eve is holding up lines up with the temple. The back cover picture is from Stu’s visit to Iowa a year earlier, when he shaved some heads, including Jenny Lee’s. The pic was too good not to use somewhere, so I figured, it should at least be placed on the cover of another show in Iowa, at the least.
This is a front cover (with a fold) because this set uses 3 cds, and if you’re like me you use those slim 3-disc holders which have no place for tray art.

Stuart Davis’ April 11, 1999 show at the Mill in Iowa City.
This is a front cover (with a fold) because this set uses 3 cds, and if you’re like me you use those slim 3-disc holders which have no place for tray art.
When I saw the “air filled sculpture” by Lewis deSoto (a 26 foot long painted-fabric Reclining Buddha which inflates when a fan is turned on, and deflates when off), I was impressed. And I wanted to save the promo pics of it. So this cover art is essentially a convenience for myself; I can save the pics of deSota’s art while simultaneously clothing the punk-monk’s discs. The time frame is correct: this sculpture was created in 1999.

Stuart Davis’ Nov 10, 1998 show at Scooter’s in Minneapolis.
The art is derived from one of his ads in the magazine
What Is Enlightenment? This cover is designed for a slim 2-disc case, so please note you’ll need to download both the front cover and the back cover.

Stuart Davis’ January 7, 1998 show at the Grape Street Pub, Manayunk, PA
The art is intended to be reflective of Kid Mystic. This is a front cover (with a fold) because the recording is only 1 cd in length so you could use a single slim case for it and you won’t need a back cover panel.

Older, less impressive bootsby Z. (that’s me I’m allowed to insult myself =))

 

Okay, here we go, this is Dream Usher, a 13-track bootleg of Stuart’s November 19th performance at the Center of the Universe Coffee House in Northfield, Minnesota on November 19th, 1998. Includes such non-album gems as Eight Days in the Lotus, Even the Devil is God, Imminence, Only Echoes (listed as Untitled, no not that Untitled, and Transpersonal Cowboy.

 

This is the last one that I finished, entitled Only Echoes culled from the ever so cool annual Escape the Relatives Holiday concert. It presents several songs that have gone unplayed for years as well as some new stuff and the usual assortment of wondrous bits.
