I'm not sure about much on this one. Overall it is is excellent. It says
that its "recorded live in usa". It sounds like it spans many years. I
recommend this one for anyone who has none. Its kind of a "sampler".
These a great versions of these songs.
This is a great live sampler CD with some fairly rare versions of the songs. Three Imaginary Boys (3.02) and Boys Don't Cry (2.56) appear to have been recorded on the 17 Seconds tour. Matthieu's keyboards figure quite prominently in both, esp. 3IB. Faith (7.59) is from the Picture Tour, with some improvised lyrics near the end. This version of A Forest (9.49) is stellar. It is from the Head on the Door tour, and eclipses "Orange" for clarity and sheer brilliance in the performance. There is a breakdown in the middle similar to "Show" many years later, and then it builds up again. There are no improvised lyrics though. Let's Go to Bed (3.27), Inbetween Days (3.04) and The Walk (3.22) appear to be from the same show as well. Lol's fucks up the easiest keyboard line in the world on Inbetween Days. Why Can't I Be You (4.44) and Hot, Hot, Hot!!! (3.30) are versions from another bootleg called Torture and are from the Kissing Tour in San Diego. Pictures of You (7.47) and Lullaby (4.15) are from the Prayer Tour somewhere, although I could be wrong, as Pictures of You has the two breaks that were in the remix version, and were not played on "Entreat". Roger fucks up a keyboard part in Lullaby. Friday I'm in Love (3.31) is the poorest quality song, and is taken from "Bite the Big Apple".
I listened to this one and the first songs sounded *really* familiar. Appears to me that this is of the same show as
Swingin' Pig's "Play for Today" was taped. Even the shouting of the audience matches.
