The Crystal Cat label have announced a brand new release very quickly after their Prague Third and Hyde Park sets. This new edition is of the Saratoga soundboard that dropped earlier this year but is suggested to have an unique new mix that’s NOT the torrent.
From an email that has been issued; “I have just had a confirmation of another new release from the Crystal Cat label, due early December.
This time it features the recently emerged soundboard recording of the show at Saratoga Springs, NY on 23rd July 2000.
As you may have noticed, this same show has just (been) announced for release in December by the Golden Eggs label (for the second release in a row, after their duplicate releases of the Hyde Park 2019 show!!) though this version is from a different original mix of the two source tape elements (soundboard and audience recording) and this release will feature NINE bonus tracks of alternate songs performed in the USA in 2000 (The Golden Eggs release features no bonus tracks)
The track listing of this release will be as follows:
Saratoga Springs, NY 23 July 2000
DUNCAN AND BRADY; TO RAMONA; DESOLATION ROW; THE BALLAD OF FRANKIE LEE AND JUDAS PRIEST; TANGLED UP IN BLUE; SEARCHING FOR A SOLDIER’S GRAVE; COUNTRY PIE; POSITIVELY 4th STREET; TOMBSTONE BLUES; SHE BELONGS TO ME; THE WICKED MESSENGER; LEOPARD SKIN PILL-BOX HAT; THINGS HAVE CHANGED; LIKE A ROLLING STONE; IT AIN’T ME BABE; HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED; BLOWIN’ IN THE WIND
