The Rivoli Toronto ON November 11 1989

This is not the best sounding show - it sounds like a 25 year old soundboard from a small club which is what it is - It is very interesting though as it is from a poorly represented period between Greatest Hits and Melville - this is The Rivoli November 11 1989. It contains early versions of Northern Wish, Aliens, Record Body Count, Christopher, King Of The Past, Horses, Chanson Les Reulles, Queer and When Winter Comes. Horses refers to Ozzy getting caught on the high voltage wire. Queer doesn't have the ending portion yet, lyrics to Soul Glue are not quite the same etc. Very interesting transitional document. Plus a bunch of songs which were not played often such as Seems Like, Uptake, Poor Mouth and As I Was Going Down The Stairs (which sounds like it was a precursor to Triangles On The Walls) - courtesy of Robert Lawson at This Side Of The Tracks.
