The 1989 European summer tour is a major highlight of the NET in terms of performance & setlists,
& thanks to Legendary Taper D (LTD) with an equipment combination of the best Sennheiser microphones of the time
feeding the legendary Sony Walkman WM-6 Professional portable recorder & the best available Maxwell tapes,
along with attendance at almost all the concerts, we have at out disposal a collection of truly wonderful tapes.
Everything is recorded in analogue – DAT recorders were very rare & expensive at the time.

The LTD tapes dominate, but there are exceptions:
the New York rehearsal is a soundboard, but a generation copy;
LTB did a better job at The Hague, which is the best-sounding tape here;
Istanbul only appears as an incomplete amateur tape in poor sound, which is a pity because it was a great performance; &
BBC2 TV recorded the Athens TV documentary with Van Morrison in excellent sound.

These recordings cover a vast collection of Bob’s pre-Oh Mercy songs –
that album was recorded immediately before this tour but was not released until late-1989 & done of its songs appear here.

It also marks the beginning of the Tony Garnier era.

Provided with a twin narrative from the late Paul Williams & the very present Andrew Muir (aka homertheslut),
we visit the very murky world of the late-1980s European bobcats, including the king of them all – the now departed Lambchop.

You can’t go wrong with this.

Many thanks to those who made this possible, particularly 10haaf, chambre, lilraven, homertheslut &
the departed hardcore bobcats, Paul Williams & Lambchop.

& lets not forget guest appearances from Van Morrison, Bono, Ringo Starr &
an (almost) Traveling Wilburys reunion with George Harrison & Jeff Lynne who were present at Birmingham where Bob played Congratulations.

    1. Is that the late ’89/early 90 US comp I’ve been waiting (hoping) on from Mat. My all time top rated N.E.T. period. Please God it turns up here someday, otherwise Mr Plumdusty has it. If you don’t have a FF a/c though you’re in for a long wait at their current miserable speeds (50kbs) and 1gb chunks!

  1. Very interesting yes, and in compiled form prob essential, but ‘You can’t go wrong with this’ is a tad strong methinks.
