The Go-Betweens: Fools In Love - Live @ Cabaret Metro Chicago, 1st April 1989

And at last another bootleg from the great GB's, and a very good one indeed: in fact although the sound quality is not excellent (but still quite good) this is a great performance from what IMHO is their peak and their best line-up, the one that toured to promote the "16 Lovers Lane" album. There are also some quite impressive moments in here to prove my theory: the beautiful Clouds with a tambourine and an almost velvetesque mood (1968-9 period by the way), and an incredible rendition of Quiet heart with an over the top drumming by Lindy Morrison that can't help but take you back to Moe Tucker (and Robert playing the harmonica à la Dylan).
It's a pity that in the end The clarke sisters got cut (and I think one song is missing), but hey, what the heck.
And this is not the end: more (bootlegs) to come!
