The ideal version of UTW would have Dave doing all the drums and the middle bit intact but without the weird jaunty sound of Orbit's version.

Actually I might like Fool's Day better.

My regret is the unused song sections, not the ditching of the mix itself. When I do listen to it, which I do, it's to appreciate those parts of the 'song', not the mix, which I look past.

Oh absolutely...I don't want to rehash that debate either, which is why I ended my last post w/we're entitled to our own respective opinion.....No one is right or wrong whatsoever..it's obviously just based on one's taste........

I want to return this back to the original subject as possible. I guess everyone prefers to see Blur in a more intimate setting opposed to at a festival? I would believe so because the more diehard fans would apt to be at the smaller gig and that's when Blur can have more freedom w/their set-list by doing the more obscure songs. The festivals again w/the more casual fans don't rather care...In my case, I was back and forth since this past Hyde Park is the first time I ever saw Blur, so I was essentially content with their "Greatest Hits", but yet did want some obscure as well...really mixed......

I think you're right Louie. My dream Blur gig would be as intimate a setting as possible and probably a pretty eclectic set list. We've all pretty much seen the hits. Always happy to see them again of course! :D But how amazing would it be to hear, say, Clover Over Dover in a room with 100 hard core fans? What we needed was a forum gig. :D :lol:

I honestly wish I attended this show... Hyde Park was excellent that year, but I certainly wish they performed more tracks off of "TMW"...IE "Ice Cream Man" since it sounded brilliant when they performed it during this particular gig!

For me, Ice Cream Man was a stand out performance from a show full of countless highlights. Why they never played it live after that is beyond me.
