From the original uploader:
This is my own recording from row 14, center in the arena floor. As far as I know, this show hasn’t surfaced yet. I’ve checked Dime & Hungercity regularly hoping it would appear, but it hasn’t, so here’s my recording.

It’s probably a 9/10, with a very focused sound. The vocal is up-front & defined, except for Sultans Of Swing where I think the mic volume wasn’t raised to accommodate the increased volume of the band.

The guitar rings through as clear as a bell & the ambience of the venue adds a richness to the overall sound, without washing out the sound too much. I’m very pleased with it & hope you will be too.

The Joe Brown tracks are a nice addition & it was good to see him appear as a surprise guest. Funnily enough, I’ve seen Mark & Joe play Donegan’s Gone twice at the Albert Hall (1st time was at the Lonnie Tribute Concert in 2004).
I’ll also be at Joe’s show at the RAH in September at which Mark will be a guest, and no doubt they’ll play it again!

    1. What do you mean? Have you tried clicking the box next to which file you want to download? When you do that normally a little download box appears up top. Is that not happening?

    1. On my side if I check only one thing it won’t download, but if I check two things then it does. If you have the bandwidth you might try checking a couple of things and trying to donwload. If you don’t have the bandwidth give it a few hours. Usually these things fix themselves after awhile.
