At The Edge Of The Abyss
And it was worth the wait! The quality of the recording is quite astounding, everything is just so clear - and while it obviously doesn't quite match actually being there, it comes pretty damned close. The choice of tracks is suitably diverse, with selections spanning the three albums - from 'Resting Place' through 'In Amber' to 'Messiah' - although a few favourites sadly didn't make the cut, due to problems with the recording (most notably 'Care Of The Devil' and 'Mark 13'). The audience is also just as vociferous on the recording as we were on the night, and - thankfully - the sing-a-long during the cover of 'Sweet Dreams' remains intact, and manages to capture the whole atmosphere of the night in just a handful of words.
If you weren't there on the night, and you didn't get a free copy, then I would urge you to try and track down one of the limited copies - as this is destined to become a much sought after recording. (By the way, I'm the one shouting loudest at the end of 'Slowburn'!). (PB) (aka: Paul And Angela)
