Dirty Three - 16 March 2012, The Palace

One of the advantages of taping shows is that you get a chance to revisit your original opinion of a show, for better or worse.  In this case listening to the show again made me realise it was actually much better than I'd thought at the time.  This was partly to do with the two girls in front of me who talked constantly (you can hear them a little bit on the recording), partly to do with the incredible heat in the venue (I thought someone had poked me in the back for a second until I realised it was sweat running down my back - ewwww), and partly it was not knowing their music well enough.  Regardless, this is actually a very good show, and the band and audience are clearly very into it.

Sue's Last Ride
??? [If anyone knows the name of this track can you post a comment] Just an extended ending - thanks crankingamps


  1. hey i think the last track is actually an extended ending to Sues Last Ride after a very long pause in the middle. thanks for posting this, my recording has a faulty right channel throughout and was recorded in less than ideal conditions anyway, yours is better

  2. Cheers, I listened to it again last night and was wondering about if that was the case. Good to have someone who knows the band a bit better confirm.
