The Golden Palominos - Toronto 1987 + bonus

El Mocambo
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
April 1987 (from the "Blast of Silence" tour)

Repercussion: Lots of links between The dB's and The Golden Palominos: Peter H wrote "Diamond," one of the group's best songs (2 versions are featured here). Chris played bass on several of the group's albums and here, on the tracks from the Boston show. Longtime dB's friend Peter Blegvad wrote several GPs songs and sings some of them in these two shows. Another longtime dB's friend, Syd Straw, is the lead singer for many of these.

(Toronto show: audio rip from pro-shot video, sound quality VG+; Boston show: audience rec., sound quality VG-)
