I think I uploaded this a few years back but it is twenty years since this brillaint evening so I thought I'd repost it.

As ever the exact lineage of my old tapes is unknown. I bought the original at the time, transferred to CD for my own use at some later point with some minor adjustments to reduce the tape hiss and little else. Whoever taped this is a genius. If anyone knows more about this original tape I'd love to know. The band are front and centre, Justin chat clear but enough audience noise to make it feel like you are there.

I remember fixing a tape flip but I did such a good job I can't spot where it is. There must be a little bit of song missing but I can't tell.

This is Del Amitri at their best. In the Barrowlands just before Christmas. This is the second of two shows they played that week. Spit In The Rain with a pipe band followed by that Christmas classic Charlie's Bar.

Download, turn it up the stereo and join in the singing.
