DEEP: Another in the seemingly endless series of "special"
club gigs where Bob strays from the norm and pulls out some rarely
played tunes to zealous throngs of a thousand or less. The
Melbourne club show covers a wide array of eclectic tunes in an
upbeat and energetic performance. Rare and more usual songs are
performed with an inspired gusto that leaves the club quaking from
the reactions. An exciting change of pace from the "standard fare"
setlists. The quality is quite good, although not a standout.
Nonetheless, a wonderful document of a now-legendary performance,
complete with snazzy 8 page booklet and essay.
