The Metro, Chicago - 1987

The dB's
The Metro
Chicago, IL
September 19, 1987

audience recording (sound quality VG++) I could tell with this recording that the house sound and taper’s equipment were high quality because the show just sounds good — in fact, I did very little tweaking to the original files other than boost the volume a bit, split the tracks, and fade in the intro & fade out the outro. ENJOY!
Windy or not, who wouldn't enjoy playing a venue like this?

Highlights: The group sounds pumped to be playing Chicago (as usual) and to be starting their “Sound of Music” tour. They play eight tunes from the album of the same name, counting the CD bonus track “Sharon”. (Despite the fact that he was later sacked, I think Harold Kelt’s keyboards sound pretty good here.) All this, plus a very rare cover of The Move's "Message From the Country"!
  

BIG THANKS to the taper and SUPER DUPER THANKS to dB’s Fan for the share.
