I have always like PG¥s II tour of 1978, probably my favourite tour right after the 1983 one. This is the first gig. Peter had finished the previous tour in october 1977 and had to rush to record and release the follow-up of his solo record, then find a proper band, rehearse and be back on the road. The tour would last untill the end of the year with the Christmas show at Hammersmith Odeon. The setlist kept changing at almost every gig, with a broad rotation of songs and introducing a bunch of new tracks.

This one in Oxford is a kind of try-out, featuring the whole second album, a few covers and a couple of tracks that would quickly disappear from the list. Overall a very interesting set and a fairly nice sound for a recording which is almost 35 years old!

You will love this!


LDB Special Series #412 (RLR collection)

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I’d like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won’t be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be myreward for all the work involved in this project.
