He did indeed bring a lot of energy to the live songs. I guess that is why the 1984 live album is still my favorite.
I'd not considered this. The '84 boots are my most 'go to' boots, particularly one Dutch gig where Robert apologises to the people who buy bootlegs cos he's got a head full of sick tonight : ) - It's a cassette I bought in '85 in Manchester and still plays great. I'd always thought this was my go to tour because of the developing receptors in that adolescent brain - but that can't be right...I've still got an adolescent brain ... I've a two hour job ahead...I'm gonna go for the Oxford '84 tape cos it's at the surface and check out for Andy's energy.
