06. sweet dreams +
07. brand new day
+ There is a tape change during track 06., a couple of seconds are missing but it's hardly noticeable.
Thanks to good reception of SWR3's broadcast signal, here's a great sounding capture from my archive of live radio master cassettes. The live mix was 1st rate that day and all acts sound their best.
Their performance has held up well over the decades and is still very enjoyable, IMHO.
Being a poor student back then, I could only committ two tapes (a 60 & a 90) and therefore only recorded some of the artists that day (I wish I could go back and tell my 30 years younger self to stop recording albums I'd sell a few years later anyway and record concerts only and as many as possible). This is the complete Eurythmics set.
This is the start of a now five part series, also including that day's sets by UB40, Simple Minds, Whitney Houston (3 tracks only), Stevie Wonder and Dire Straits.
