Fin de Siglo

26 Sep 1987

During the Foundations Tour, John also visited Spain. For RTVE he recorded at least two tracks live in the studio, with the full band.
John plays a white guitar; Foster Paterson keyboards, Arran Ahmun drums, and probably David Ball on fretless bass.
Angeline lasts 5 minutes, Over the Rainbow two and a half.

Ohne Filter (3)

1 Apr 1986

10 minutes
Band appearance not identical with the 45 minute special (the Laserdisk), but taken from same concert. I also found an 'Ohne Filter extra' broadcast by WDR on Sunday 22 June 1986 that apparently lasted more than two hours.
