I think this wasn't posted yet...No one is mentioning G.B.'s appearance on this year's convention.What tracks did he play ? Did he anwser any questions from audience? I've heared Simon Lupton's anwsers,but it was nothin' special.

I seem to recall that he played instrumental versions of:
you and I
march of the black queen
nevermore
long away
funny how love is
jealousy
all dead all dead

vocal demos of put out the fire (nice long bit of drumming at end)
Hard Life
great king rat

I thought they lost the masters for "All Dead All Dead" and "You And I"?

They lost the tapes of the album-version. This is probably a different take, which obviously DID survive in the archives.
Same as Coming Soon perhaps. Tapes lost - different take used for the DVD-A...

I wonder how many ppl think that this different take is much better than the album one...
Mind you, I can't stand the song, thank god they never played it live, but... the version from DVD-A is much better!

surely they would have been outtake/unused backing tracks? why would he play standard instrumental versions? they then wouldn't be rarities, but just new remixes.

well... err... 'no', they would be instrumentals :-)

Why he would not play any truly unheard stuff?
Because he is pissed off that previous years 'his' tapes where recorded from the audience and ended up on the internet.

Ehm... about that different take business. I'm sure it's only a different backing vocal mix that was used. They didn't have those parts of Roger's vox at the time, and still don't I guess. It wasn't the entire track that was changed.

Peace,
Adam.
