"Visiting the great "The World of Kevin Coyne" blog (cheers, Poor), this made me remembering an old recording I made in Paris.
To me, there's no reason to doubt the exact date is 1983 April 9: that's my cassette sleeve says, the set list is different from the known April 7 and 8 Forum Des Halles boots and there is a guest musician on harmonica (not for others shows).
I don't pretend showing something new to the true Kevin-maniacs, just uploading an exc audience uncirculated master.
I only knew Kevin through his albums and shows ("In living black and white" is in my top 5 live records) but i remember him as a true, sincere artist and a very nice (and desperate ?) person.
Forum show: recorded on Sony TCD5 M with Beyer dynamic M 201 mics, close to the stage.
Kevin Coyne with:
Peter Kirtley on guitar,
Dave Sheen on drums,
and as guest on harmonica, Mark Slaze (surely not exact name)
A radio FM session for French radio is added as a bonus.
My attempt for set-lists:
Paris, Forum Des Halles 1983 April 9; audience master.

Then, what do you know, in Sep 2009, Serge provided a THIRD show at le Forum on April 9! To think that Coyne filled a 500 seating venue three nights in a row at the time..
