Additional comments

Very good sounding bootleg, taken from the radio broadcast from 10th May 1986. All the comments of the radio reporter are edited out and the sound has been remastered (for the show with radio reporter, see Radio Show CD's section, Saturday's at seven - Houston 1985). One thing is clear: all recordings that are known as "San Antonio, 16th August 1985" are actually taken from the date *after* this San Antonio concert; Houston 17th august 1985. At the end of Brothers in arms, Mark says: "Thank you Houston, thank you America, we love you!" The sound quality of this soundboard recording is very good and also complete! Tunnel of love is almost 19 (!) minutes while the version of the bootleg "San Antonio '85" is heavily edited and lasts only 7:55. On this complete version Mark says about this song: "This is a song about being in a band, this is a song about being in love, a song about growing up. There's a place in Newcastle where I come from, it's called the Spanish City. I used to go there and listen to rock 'n roll music, look at all the girls .... This song is called the Tunnel of Love!". Very nice concert with great atmosphere from 1985. This version is slightly better though: Solid Houston 1985.
