The Go-Betweens: Live In London

Must be time for a Go-Betweens post.
Recorded live at the Barbican Hall, London on 27th June 2004,
this out of print, but absolutely fantastic live recording is very
special indeed. Robert Grant, Adele and Glenn take us on a
journey back through the Go- Betweens recording career,
right to the start and up until 2004.



Songs that rarely are heard live are dusted off and played
with gusto. The band is on fire, the recording impeccable.
What more could you ask for, they begin with the sound of
rain, a very old track they recorded with Peter Walsh back
at the start. Theres plenty more old tracks, a couple of
obscure B-sides, including my fav "When people are dead"
Theres also a heap of there best tracks, only they didn't
do "Head full of steam", Oh well You can't have everything.

Typical, I've just ordered this from the Go-Betweens store and now I find I could have got it here for free! You gonna put any of their other stuff up? I don't wanna do the same thing again.

Downloading now. As always, thank you so much, from one Bob to another :)

I'm going to have a trawl through my collection and see if there's anything left of note that I can contribute to the amazing SSS.

I was just listening to the gobies live in Wellington, 1985 show that was up on Misha's site a while back. Really, such a great boot and from such a wonderful period for the band (and strangely under-represented in widely-available live recordings). I find that live boots are a bit hit and miss for a lot of bands, but all these GB odds and ends from SSS and others really fill in the picture so wonderfully.

Fair winds and thanks again. :)

Bobby.

Thank you bobby for your kind comments and any contributions to the blog will be gratefully accepted
Live boots are a bit hit and miss but hasn't there been some fantastic Forster boots of late.

I attended this show during a visit to London from the States. What an evening of sheer magic. A re-up would be hugely appreciated. Love the blog, and many thanks.
