  1. Now you’re talkin’. My favourite ‘never ending’ era Fall/Autumn 89 to Feb 90. Incidentally Mat, this is the show which I either referred you to, or sent you. I really can’t remember which. Anyway that was a different and recent commercial boot silver release, ‘Blowin Down The Hudson’ maybe, something like that anyway.
    Most importantly, this is a great show. Both Bob and the band are in great form throughout this ‘Oh Mercy’ period. I don’t think that in relatively recent years Bob has captured the spirit of the classic 60s material better than he did during these 4 or 5 months. Check out the really impassioned ‘Tears Of Rage’ here. Of course a lot of this is down once again to the brilliant work Of Christopher Parker on the kit. The effortless tempo changes from shuffle beats to really rocking out. Just born to play this stuff!

    Add in a really energised Bob showcasing his new material and you have all the ingredients you need.

  2. Thanks a bunch for this one! Been trying to hunt this show down for a long time. One of the best shows from one of the best NET eras!
