Recorded from FM radio – professional job.
Performance Quality: A
Has to rank as one of the best Second Coming shows. Squire’s guitar dominates, and Ian’s a bit off, but the band sound tight as a unit in this show. It is worth saying that some people don’t like this gig, saying Squire’s guitar dominates too much.
Why should I get this bootleg?
Great quality, and get it especially if you’re a fan of Squire and his guitar-playing – you won’t hear him play better!
“Ian doesn’t sound too interested… John is amazing though, I don’t think he could play Love Spreads any better” – Tom Motzny, USA
“What a great gig, Squire is amazing.” – Kieran Gray, England
“Cracking.” – Paul Gipsponge, England
“The quality is as good as Crimson Tonight and the performance even better.” – Kieran Gray, England
“Great! Daybreak/Breaking Into Heaven is phenomenal, John’s solos are the best I’ve heard yet from these 2.. perfect sounding recording.” – Elliot Chodowski, USA
“The quality is faultless. The guitar dominates but when Squire is so talented why the hell not?” – Warren Stalley, England
“I was surprised at just how different Maddix’s drums sounded. You could tell they had to change a lot of the Second Coming songs around to take them out on the road. The bass is a bit grunty but other than that… Ian sounds quite good, but I miss the three way harmony on Tightope.” – Alex Adams, England
“I must confess to being a little shocked at quite how tone-deaf Ian Brown appears to be! The band sound really tight though; John in particular is fantastic.” – Henry Yates, England
“Ian’s singing falters occasionally, but is on the whole good. Maddix at times is absolutely amazing, Mani is funky beyond words and Squire is simply out of this world. Brilliant, especially with the added keys on Breaking Into Heaven.” – John Samuelsson, England
“Squire is ridiculously good, Daybreak is some of the most impressive guitar work I’ve heard, the keyboard sounds really cool for a change. Love Spreads is the best I’ve heard.” – Ben Cohen, England
“Fantastic performance and perfect sound quality. Highlight of the performance has to be Daybreak, especially Squire. This performance is definitely more intense than the Leicester gig. There is a very effective use of feedback and echo on both Squire’s guitar and Brown’s vocals in both gigs. I hear some new bit of genius every time I listen to a track even after the tenth time listening to it!” – Paul McAuley, Scotland
