The Komedia, Brighton, 7 November 2005

What an absolutely fantastic show!

‘Hannah’, ‘Roads to Freedom’, ‘Fine Day’, what a combination, truly awesome.

I don’t think ‘Roads’ has ever been played live before. What a terrific song it is. ‘Secret Place’ has given way to ‘Islands’, last heard live in the UK at the Marquee shows in 1985.

‘Too Rolling Stoned’ moves into the second half of the set and is all the more funky for it with the band finding a more flexible, freer groove particularly in the solo section at the end.

There are welcome returns for ‘Victims of the Fury’, ‘Go my way’ and ‘Another time, Another place’.

We get two marvellous encores tonight: ‘Lady Love’ together with ‘The past untied’; then later, an impromptu ‘Daydream’.

The Brighton crowd loved it, next stop, Cambridge. This is Alan Howard reporting for ‘Steve’s Place’.
