Great recording. MD switch done in the encorebreak, so no music is lost. After the show I used my old analog soundcard to put this show to cdr. I traded it with about 15 people in total. One of them (unknown, but strong feeling who did it) seems to have brought it straight to the RattleSnake label and got it pressed under the name “Dont Waste Your Words” (, a bootleg with additional songs from the Brussels gig (which is not my recording). Two weeks after the gig one trader tells me he listened to this bootleg and its seemed to be the same recording. I have not been able to check myself, but he was very sure. But, there is a hiss on the original cdrs (bootleg now) and a small error (can’t remember where), due to the crappy soundcard.🙂 This version is clear and never put online untill now.

  1. Necessary for many reasons incl ex sound qual and the fact that this date is a rare omission (or recording failure) by the Crystal Cats. Anyway, every date from this tour is necessary IMO. Can’t remember if this or the reultant Rattlesnake boot is the one to grab. From memory they are both a damn good listen.
