This was the final show on a UK tour where Dire Straits opened for TH.
According to an eye-witness, there was a final encore of “Gloria” with
the members of Dire Straits, too bad it’s not on the tape!

The final three tracks on this file-set are missing from the recent 24bit
transfer (Oct 2012), and are patched-in from an earlier 16bit transfer.
An MP3 version of the same tape includes 0:40 of Love > Building, and
another 0:54 of crowd noise at the end. Previous transfers of this tape
also contain fragmentary versions of three songs (Love > Building, Uh Oh
Love, & TYFSMAA) that appear to come from a different show of this tour.

THANKS to Hans for sharing this great historical recording…enjoy!

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!

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.

Additional comments from oneverybootleg:
One of the best radio broadcasts of the Golden heart tour.
Taken from the original silver pressed bootleg “Swinging golden hearts”.
Perfect sound quality! Great atmosphere with an amazing sounding
version of Telegraph road. Incomplete concert. As a bonus some songs
from the BBC performance are added on the second disc.
