soundboard (quality VG++; good, full sound for a source tape of this era)
|That's Paul on the left and Nick, 4th from left. This is Nick's "Noise to Go" band.|
These are well-written, well-sung, and very well-performed tunes from around the same time The dB’s were hitting their stride. If you usually enjoy the stuff I post, give this one a listen and leave a comment letting me know what you think.

At the time of this tour, Paul Carrack had released his best solo album, Suburban Voodoo and Nick Lowe released his well-received Nick the Knife. As evidenced by this show, a combo tour turned out to be a really good idea.
