Geetarz Comments:

The 1988 Tour celebrated Clapton’s 25th Anniversary in the music
business, and coincided with the resurgence of classic roots rock
and blues in the public eye. The tour was received warmly, and the
crowd in Phildelphia was off the hook, which really took the energy
level of the band up a notch as well.

Sourced from a low generation copy of a pro-shot Video in wide
circulation among collectors – then remastered by the 3BR team.

Great, crisp soundboard recording. The mix, in particular, is very
up-front and close-miked.

IMO, this is superior to the Tarantura release “Vivela Slowhand”,
which apears to have been sourced from a lower quality, higher-
generation source and suffers from a bit of VHS tracking noise.

Note from the original uploader: Short but very well played show by MK and the band.

In italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. His/Her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what’s happening on stage. But the songs, the actual music, are not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that italian djs are on the whole adviced to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging.

From the original uploader

Another amazing show at the Dolby Theatre. Mark and his tight band were on fire and really seemed to enjoy themselves. We had the paerfect crowd around us, respectful, not yackers. Some distant woowoos and whistles now and then. My first time seeing Mark and I was deeply moved by the experience.

Since this show, and a few of his others from this tour are not available for sale on Mark’s website http://www.markknopfler-live.com it should be okay to upload here. If later it becomes available(highly doubtful), then I’ll pull it.

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.

Enlight note:

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).
