Burggraben, Nuernberg, Germany
July - 19 - 1986
Outdoor show
from SEETHELIGHT7 collection # 705
Rec. Info:
unknown lineaged very low-gen FM recording. This tape (TDK SA90) -> playback on NAK DR3* -> HD -> WeTransfer -> my HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC ->
YOUR EARS AND MIND...on turpentine! * done by SEETHEFUZZ7
Unfortunately just a snippet of this great show from one of the finest singer/songwriters ever walked this earth! Also, the tracks are definitely not in the correct running order,
as all tracks faded out (quite amateurishly done) during the applause. The first song is maybe the last of this show, or at least the last before the encore. My guess is that this
origins from a BR3 "Zündfunk" broadcast. Anyway, the sound is very nice to excellent. I added a bit more low end for a more satisfying listening.
As mentioned before, KEVIN COYNE, multitaltented artist of music, poetry and painting, left this world far too early. A few weeks before his 61th birthday he passed away from the
complications of a lungdesease in late 2004. A resident of Nuernberg since 1985, he chose Germany as his home to concentrate on his full scale of artistry and got married there, too.
Praised as an so called "anti-star", he never floated along with the music biz, but stood straight and strong to his own believes. Great man, indeed.
My first encounter with him was when I watched a videotape of his 1976 Rockpalast show in the early 80's and thought: Well, that guy is really MAD! But I loved the performance.
Unfortunately I saw him only once in 1990 at infamous "Hyde Park" in Osnabrueck, when he opened for Randy California's SPIRIT. I can cleary remember him grumbling about the fact that
"someone" teamed him up with that band (all in the "sung" song interludes!) and surely he stole the show from them. Think I shit in my pants from laughter about this crazy supreme
cynical humour... Ok, it was an odd pairing, indeed. So, I hope there are a lot more tapes from him out there, waiting to be released or reseeded in the year of his 70th anniversary
and sadly the 10th of his passing. And wherever his soul is now, he won't be the comfortable guy, but a righteous man who never let anyone bow him. SB.
ALL THAT WAS ON TAPE (36:04 min.)

01. Turpentine (4:15)
02. The World is Full of Fools (4:33)
03. Tell the Truth (6:03)
04. Mummy (6:10)
05. Saviour (6:29)
06. Gina's song (6:11)
07. Let me be with you (2:20) fades out midsong

Setlist is a matter of guess, sorry no PRETTY PARK or HOUSE ON THE HILL here...
Also, unfortunately no details about the lineup. Maybe someone can help with both?

Do not convert to lossy files, unless for personal use. No lossy net use! Flac rules!
If you wanna get some turpentine? Tasty!

This is the best Babble boot ever: good sound and performance, a splendid - as ever - Zoot Money, amazing lyrics. For these first performances of Babble (a year before the album), Kevin Coyne does monologues between the songs, with a totally different text from the 1979 Europe and London performances. For the moment, Dagmar sticks to singing.
Michale recalls for the Kevin Coyne Group: "I know this  recording along with a number of other Coyne recordings of this period are often attributed to others, but it was often me with a Sanyo cassette recorder dangling over the monitor at the front of the stage, and usually with Kevin’s blessing. I recall that this was one of four nights of Babble at the Rock Club and on the next night  Kevin had to sing every song as Dagmar was ill. Wish I’d recorded that one! Kevin’s then wife Lesley was at that particular show and upon learning she was disappointed in missing Dagmar, I piped up and offered and subsequently sent her a copy of this recording."

The Babble chronology is :
Rock Club London July 78
June 79 album out and Europe tour (Paris, Sweden, Holland, Germany)
June 79 the scheduled show at Stantford Theatre is cancelled because of The Sun controversy.
