Included text: Recorded at the request of the girl who booked bands at the International, she guest-listed me. One of the last gigs with Karl Wallinger on keyboards, it was an impressive show even if you (like me) had no previous experience of Mike Scott's unique Scottish/Irish crossover.
I've added the BBC session from the same period as a bonus.
Share and enjoy!
