From the original uploader:
Big thanks to Stepmo for the original upload and Spituchi for the-cover art (Thanks Enlight)
Additional comments(OEB): A nice compilation of various songs from the Golden heart tour.
The sound quality varies. Tracks 1-4are radio broadcasts with very good sound,
the other tracks are audience recordings.
Nice to have for the rarely played songs.
Nice mixure of encores and rarely played songs during the 1996 Golden Heart tour.
The four tracks are from the “Hamburg Encores” a radio broadcast with perfect sound and four great versions these are.
Gravy version of “No CAn DO”
Lovely and sentimental version of “Last exit to Brooklyn” especially when Mark joines in with his guitar. (shivers down the spine)
“Vic and Ray” was played totaly different during this part of the tour than later ,e.g. more drums and a raw guitar sound.
One of my favourite song “Portobello belle” is absolutely great with the violin included and offcourse appreciated by the Irish crowd.
Great to hear Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings doing backing vocals on “Water of Love” (24th May 1996).
