Barcode and Other Identifiers
"Gary's first live album, and arguably the very best one. With a set list heavily centered around Pleasure Principle and other Tubeway songs, he adds the guitars that he took away in the studio and blows the top off of this 2 disc live album.
The Tubeway songs are remade with synth and guitars and sound bloody brilliant. Even the drum looping Bombers with it's string arrangement is a work of beauty. The Dream Police is my favorite of the bunch, along with the version of Down In The Park on here "
