Here is my choice of 1989 PMG for you

Apart from the Montreal Jazz Festival 1989 this is the only SBD recording I have on
PMG for that year. I have made one or two repairs to the Trade discs I recieved
-there are still a couple of notes missing from" Last Train Home"(barely noticeable)
and a v small cut in Lyle's solo on "First Circle" and left channel missing from
part of "Straight on Red".
This is a personal favourite year in the PMG story-because of the material and the
band personel-the inclusion of Pedro a vital factor-a great instrumentalist and
the best vocalist PMG have had.

A particular mention here for the only SBD live version of the beautiful
and rarely played "5-5-7"-with it's melodic nod to Ennio Morricone.
...Pedro's angelic voice...and how about the way Pedro's voice emerges from
the intro to "Minueno"

Two discs- 74.48 and 62.41
(Missing from the show are Scrap Metal and Third Wind )

Nearly 20 years old & with a few faults-still highly recommended
