Show #54, Release date: 31. March, 2006
Tennis Center, Melbourne, Australia, 19. February, 1988. This is a soundboard, concert recording that surfaced last summer. I’d love to know how this came to fruition because it’s the best of an ’88 gig you’ll find. It has a few flaws however. There were some slight mixing issues plus the encore and other small parts were missing. My guess is that a crew member had recorded this for their own posterity. Anyway, I tried my best to patch it up just to make the ride less bumpy and added a fantasy encore, if you will, for good measure. Oh and almost forgot, speaking of patching things. This podcast opens with a very nice soundboard version of Echoes, however incomplete from 1987, but that’s patched up too. I explain more in the podcast. Hope you dig it.
