well, you dont really get a sense of the drinking, the scenery,
the drinking, the miles, the drinking, or the drinking,
but yes - obviously the tunes on the CD *had* to have come
from the 92tour.

oh. erm.. beside the order of the CD tracks being different
from a typical show, i think it is fairly accurate.
fyi - Still And All almost always started the show, and the
covers (or the odd old tune) would come at the ends.
Shirley always preceeded Racheland which ended in a big big
howling mess before the covers started.

you mean after legal suits and stuff?
ok - heres the deal. i will be spending some time with
my turntable this weekend, and i plan to dump all my LPs
and singles to DAT. when i get back(*), we can discuss taping-fests
for people who need copies. just to be ethical though, i will only
dub the older singles. go and buy the newer albums yerself!

domestic Waiting For The Love Bus:
it still is planned to be released on TriStar in the US.

tentative germany tour:
Feb 1 - H'Burg
* 2 - Berlin
* 3-5 - other places
* 6 - Frankfurt

there will be yet-another creation compilation containing
a JBC track after the new year.

UK gig:
Dec 22 - at the Belgium in Northampton (*)
* the old musico's birthday party.

(*) i will be in the UK 14-24 of this month,
* and would like to go drinking as often as possible.
* matt? ed? Jim? joe?
* christmastime dubs of extra-rare stuff dance in my head.
