Short show featuring fairly early versions of some Boy songs. All of them sound a little strange compared to later outings. Very interesting to hear these classics evolving. I Will Follow has a really neat intro. An Cat Dubh and Into the Heart are played together but WITHOUT a segue; Into the Heart is, effectively, its own song - probably the only time ever.


Very good, a little crackly with a few slight cut-outs but overall very very good. No clue as to why it's listed as 2 stars
Recording: FM Aerial Broadcast - 2 stars


No audience.


Short set. Download it now, quality is great and all four songs are performed brilliantly. Into the Heart as a sort-of standalone is very cool. A cool peek into the evolution of these songs.
