Saw them on the '97 tour I'm sure they didn't! Remember swallows being played. Do hope Graham plays tomorrow night when I'm there...

Damon and Graham were saying before they played The Man Who Left Himself that they'd never played it live. Though they seemed a little uncertain. :lol: Graham made a fabulous racket at the end of the song with his Telecaster.

just got back from the Albert Hall - great gig :)

Damon and Graham played encores of End of the Century, The Man Who Left Himself (as has been said) and Tender (inevitably) - both of them in good voice and spirits! De La Soul were there for Feel Good and Brian Eno came on for Heavy Seas...

Bought the CD :roll: - no tracklist (of course, artwork was prepared before), will report back on whether everything got recorded.

Took a few vids but was miles away in the upper circle - we'll see how those go tomorrow...

OK - here's the first of my blurry long-distance vids shot from the other side of the river (where I live...) - Out Of Time and All Your Life at the Albert Hall 15 November...Images are hazy bollocks but the sound is OK I think :)

bit of a problem (which is a shame) - about half the tracks on the first disc of the Albert Hall 15 November 2 CD are unplayable...

CD2 (the encores) is really good. The first half of CD1 is great too. The second half of CD1 is corrupted. Bugger...will have to contact Abbey Road Studios next week I guess :roll:

I know it's called "live at the de de de der" but I didn't expect it to sound like that :o
Put together too quickly...

Shame to hear about the CD1 - there are other people reporting about the same problem on Damon's Facebook.

Fantastic gig last night! Damon and the band was on top form. And the versions of tender and the man who left himself were were my highlights.....Had bloody goosebumps! Hoping to transfer my CD later and I do hope there is a bluray/DVD of the shows for a future release!
