A few days ago we revealed news of the latest release from Crystal Cat, the ‘Turku Wrecking Ball” boxed set. Today the images have arrived from this set and a ‘press release’.
“A new six CD slip cased release from the Crystal Cat label that contains both nights performances from the rare 2013 indoor shows in Turku, Finland on 7 and 8 May in the early stages of the European Tour.
Both shows are 27 song sets, with an amazing 17 different songs performed on the second night in comparison to the first! A very nice selection of songs over both nights, highlighted by the first and to date only ever live performance of Wages Of Sin on the second night.
This release also features the sound check/rehearsals before each show as bonus tracks.
The source tapes for this release are previously unavailable IEM/Soundboard type recordings mixed with audience recordings similar to this labels previous releases from 2013, and may be the best sounding yet, no mean feat considering the very high standard of those previous releases!
The packaging also follows the style of previous releases of this nature, with each night with it’s own full colour multi-page booklet and the two shows housed in a slip case with an extra booklet.
The track listings for these shows are as follows:
