The Cure – Ich Hasse Rock’N Roll! (EGG 150) is a single disc from Scala, Herford, Germany on May 31st, 1980. This is sourced from a “superb soundboard recording captured from the master source”.
David Bowie – One Night With David (EGG 151/152) is a 2CD set from Gorge Amphitheatre, Quincy, Washington on August 16th, 2002. This is the complete concert from an excellent audience recording. Notes accompanying the release state “The last night of the 2002 Area 2 tour at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Seattle on the 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, including 2 Presley songs in the encores. This concert was out before on a Japanese label but had an annoying drum audible in the background. This Golden Eggs release comes from a new source which luckily doesn’t have that annoying drum around. So now you can enjoy David’s tribute plus some very nice bonus tracks as you would like it to be”. The bonus material comes from the Jonathan Ross show, UK on June 27th, 2002, The Tonight Show, USA on August 12th, 2002, and the Conan O’Brien show, USA on October 19th, 2002.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe.
