Just a piece of relevant Information for those who the Soul Driver Album... Well on the sleeve notes it says recorded live in europe. well its actually the BBC Radio 1 Concert that aired live on the 10th November 1991 from Wembley Arena.. when radio did live broadcasts I did tape the concert onto tape but as the years have gone on.. it's got really old and sadly the tape got stuck in the tape machine!!.. I'm on the look out for a copy of this cd.. because it was a great concert to hear...
Hi Markham, thanks for that valuable piece of info. Well, technically, the sleeve isn’t lying: it was recorded live, off the radio probably too. A few live bootlegs have shown up on Ebay from time to time: “Soul driver”, which a friend of mine has actually seen in a store in Germany, “L’amour fou” from France, “Time love and tenderness live” allegedly from Japan, one called “L!ve in the U.S.A.”, all from the 91-92 tour and another one called “Around the world in 90 days”, but not sure what tour that one is from. They all have subtle differences. So, keep your eyes open. Take care Markham and thanks again for the info. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Yeah their are a few of the wembley concert cd's out there under an different name.. but the Soul Driver is on the KTS label (One of the major live show labels circulating round record fairs) the other one was recorded in the US, I think they named it "When The Night Comes".. take care. M
Hi again Markham, I didn’t know “Soul driver” was on an actual label, which would mean it’s technically not bootleg. I’d never come across “When the night comes”. The CD titles I've mentioned have differences like jumbled track listings which can be confusing, but they also have different ambient sound and some have added songs, so you know they’re not from the same recording. Thanks again Markham, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hope all is well.
Both When The Night Comes and Soul Driver, are from the same gig, taken from the BBC Radio One broadcast, due to length of gig and length of CD recording available, both omit various parts of the concert. To get the full gig, you have to own both and pull them together on iTunes, as i have done. Soul Driver omits When I'm Back On My Feet Again, whilst When The Night Comes omits other talking to the audience sections as well as the band instrumental that Soul Driver has.
I also have L'Amour Fou, which is from the Timeless World Tour of '92/93. The sound quality on this isn't great as it's not a soundboard recording. Also, if I remember rightly from my gig of this tour, MB had a severe cold that he was battling through!
Hi James, good to hear from you! I’m doing well thanks, hope you and your family are too. :D Wow, thanks for the info. I think my “L!ve in the U.S.A.” has WIBOMFA and if I remember correctly, “Soul driver”is the one that has the attempt at “Vesti la giuibba” which Michael joked he had written... :D It’s been a while since I’ve been able to listen. James, how lucky you were able to attend a TLT concert... Man, if Michael had a cold on that recording, he still sounded out of this world! That CD contains my desert island version of “Georgia”... Well anyway, I’ll ask my family if the title “When the night comes” is written on one of my other CD’s. Thanks a lot James, take good care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Thanks for that information about Soul Driver just always knew obviously bootleg but didn't know where it had come from at all. Sorry Markham but you ain't getting my copy !!!!!!!! LOL
Sylvia Your wee Scottish friend
that ts ok.. if you want a great site instead of going through ebay and amazon try Discogs!!!
Yes, I knew this and have Soul Driver. It is the incomplete gig though, omitting When I'm Back On My Feet Again. There is another one that includes this, called When The Night Comes, as Sylvie states. I have that too! It was from a two night stint at Wembley Arena, during the TLT Tour of '91. I was at the one the previous night! Remember it going out on Radio One, I too recorded it!
