    It's been 25+ years, she can't just hit play on a tape recorder like Vince. My friend was telling me the other day, that Vince seems to have become lazy during the last few Erasure tours, he doesn't even get out the old guitar for Sometimes and Victim Of Love. Fatherhood must be taking its toll on Mr. Clarke.

    Oh, I don't fault her. I forget shit by the minute :p -I can't imagine being a performer... or an aging performer! Clarke seems to be slowing down too, but he should at least enjoy himself. Give us our money's worth ;)

    Gah, how I love 'Upstairs at Eric's'. :guitar:

    You And Me Both had more of Alison's writing, and is quite a bit more soulful which is what makes me more partial to it. Yes, Vince needs to get out the Abba Dress and mime along to Happy People. Unfortunately, it's a recording we know he wants to forget. She hated the song, refused to record it, so we get stuck with Vince giving us a half-assed vocal effort and makes us thank God Depeche Mode found Dave Gahan and spared the world from Vince Clarke, singer-songwriter.

    Thanks for this, a mate at work will be dead chuffed - She follows Alison around all over the place, but could not afford the high prices for the Yazoo gigs

    Thanks for this recording.

    As much as I like Yazoo, after listening to this concert and viewing the You Tube of then on Jonathon Ross, I get the feeling that seeing them live would be a bit of a bore.

    Clark poking away at a laptop isn't very exciting, and many of the songs have a lot of non vocal parts. I don't imagine Alison dancing around or glad handing the crowd.

    If they would have added a band and updated the sound with other instruments to sub for the 80's synth beep bop boops, it would be much more interesting. Alison's voice is still good that changing the instruments wouldn't have hurt the nostalgia.
