boombox's notes march 2018:
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Canterbury's finest. This was night one of the tour and well worth the 250 mile round trip through blizzard conditions on the motorway to attend. Pye may be the only founder member left, but the current core of the band, Jan, Jim and Mark, make the band rockier than they have ever been. With 40+ years member Geoffrey out on tour with Murray Head, a few songs did miss his violin, but John Etheridge was much more than a stand-in - some of the duelling between him and Jan was excellent and I can only imagine the interplay will only soar higher as the tour progresses. Most of the usual favourites got played (no 'For Richard', unfortunately) and the setlist was heavy on the latest album release. They also included a live premiere of a song from Pye's rather tasty solo album that John had also guested on.
Sound in the venue was excellent and the audience respectful, so the recording came out very well; nothing to do apart from fades and volume adjustments.
Crank this one up and play loud, then buy a ticket to see the band if you can, and/or buy the merch.
