The Sisters Of Mercy - Amsterdam 1983.

This is the second of five mainland European dates The Sisters Of Mercy performed, during their 'Trans Europe Excess Tour'. The band who started performing live in 1981, had already developed a strong following with several independent single and EP releases, often being 'hailed' in the UK indie press of that time. Playing at the excellent venue The Paradiso, Amsterdam, on the 28th August 1983, this boot has apparently also circulated as 'Napalm Gods', 'Possession', and 'Live In Amsterdam', along with this copy entitled 'Beware The Ghost'. Source: Sound board recording. Sound Quality: Very good stereo mp3 @ 320kbps. Genre: Post punk, Gothic Rock. Set: Majority of concert (cannot confirm if full set). Set List: 1. Burn. 2. Valentine. 3. Anaconda. 4. Heartland. 5. Alice. 6. Emma. 7. Temple of Love. 8. Floorshow. 9. Adrenochrome. 10. Gimme Shelter. 11. Kiss the Carpet. 12. Body Electric. 13. Lights. 14.

Cocteau Twins - Live Black Session 1994

The Cocteau Twins are one of my all time favorite acts. I will resist the inclination to give an over the top and gushing review and just say, for any fan this is a must have. For anyone not familiar with them, and at the risk of being accused of musical heresy, their recorded material is a much better starting point, then you will just want more, and settle for any bootleg, bearing in mind the principle that one persons pleasure, is another's poison... Live on the 4th February 1994, this is Cocteau Twins live in studio 105. Source: Live 'Black Session' recorded for France Inter (French radio station) in Paris, Maison de la Radio, Studio 105, (with studio audience). Sound Quality: Very good FM stereo @192kbps mp3. Genre: Dream pop / Ambient (1986-1997), Ethereal (1983-1986), Gothic rock / Post-punk (1979-1983). Set: This is the full studio concert.
