The Sundays - Live in Köln (1990)

The Sundays revival is now in full swing, as you can see ... I actually meant to rip just one show and then I got carried away (by Harriet's voice of course ;-) If you own some live recording of The Sundays please, please share.

This show was a bit tricky to rip. I own two different recordings of it, and none of them is complete. So what I did was rip the recording with the best sound quality and then add the missing tracks (tracks 8, 9 and 10) from the second recording which is unfortunatelly of a lesser audio quality. But at least this way the show is complete.

Artist: The Sundays
City: Köln (Germany)
Venue: Luxor
Date: March 16, 1990


01: Here's Where The Story Ends
02: I Won
03: I Kicked A Boy
04: A Certain Someone
05: Joy
06: What Do You Think?
07: Skin & Bones
08: Something More
09: My Finest Hour
10: Hideous Towns
11: Turkish
12: Can't Be Sure
13: Here's Where The Story Ends

The Sundays - Live in Manchester (1989)

This is a show that I received back in my high-school days when me and a friend of mine used to run a live tapes trading list. This Manchester recording of The Sundays came from a trading list called 'Lost At C'. The sound isn't as good as my own recording of The Sundays in Brussels but it's more than decent and very enjoyable.

Artist: The Sundays
City: Manchester (UK)
Venue: International
Date: February 24, 1989


01: (intro)
02: Can't Be Sure
03: Here's Where The Story Ends
04: I Kicked A Boy
05: A Certain Someone
06: My Finest Hour
07: Something More
08: Skin & Bones
09: Hideous Town
10: I Won

The Sundays - Live in Bruxelles (1990)

"And it's you and me in the summertime,
We'll be hand in hand down in the park,
With a squeeze and a sigh and that twinkle in your eye,

And all the sunshine banishes the dark."

- Summertime (1997)

Ah! Me and Harriet in the summertime... <3 Although this show happened in March and at that time of the year the weather in Belgium can be rather cold.

The sound of this recording could have been even better but I wanted to stand as close as I could to Harriet ... and so did much of the male audience that evening :D Since then I always wondered how many break-ups Harriet Wheeler was responsible for?

ComeBackHarriet has posted a lot of  live videos of the band on YouTube, especially a terrific version of the song 'Goodbye'. Sadly I don't think they'll ever make a come back and that this was goodbye forever...
