I think some live tracks by the two-guitar lineup of BAD qualify for this thread now. E=MC2, Rewind, and Just Play Music particularly.

Best E=mc2s...

(70 mm widescreen version)
Lollapalooza
Bradford "Radio One live in Concert"

I like the Fallon version, but I think Lollapalooza caught the 2011 BAD at their best.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Oh, and I mean the 2011 reunion, not BAD II.

Brilliant.

I've got a version of "(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais" wich I've managed to take from the dubbed version of the Rude Boy soundtrack. I've removed the live track from Glasgow Apollo - Tuesday 4 July 1978 just leaving the track the band dubbed on top in Basing Street Studios. This is a different version to the 7'' and the RAR alt. version. I like it at least as much as the official 7''.

In my music library. I will be sharing with all in time. I'm putting something together at the moment. If that doesn't work out then I will simply upload the track as a stand alone download. Patience my dear boy.
