LP black vinyl with download card
There is a warmth about this recording which echoes that of Live at The 12 Bar, recorded three years before. It’s mostly just Bert and his guitar, with the welcome addition of intuitively placed flourishes of bass and percussion. Available on vinyl for the first time, this ambience is heightened by Brian Pyle’s sensitive remastering, bringing a real intimacy to this enduring collection of songs.
Recorded live at Continental Cafe, Melbourne, Australia in March 1998. Pete Howell (bass); Ian Clarke (percussion).
Liner notes by Colin Harper. Remastered from original tapes by Brian Pyle.
