That is awesome show, what a great song selection. This makes up for the Stevie Ray rehearsal tracks, which I finally got somewhere else. Thanks, Art.

Hi Anon, thanks for the comment. Sorry you had to find the SRV stuff elsewhere. Actually, I was sitting here with Emmett last night listening to the Station To Station on the SRV rehearsal, as well as other shows. Maybe I should have posted that show instead, but I do love the Heathen stuff from the Beacon.

Hey Mike,
Those SRV Dallas rehearsal tracks are pretty awesome, wonder why he didn't do the tour? Money? Anyway, the "Heathen" show is quite good and welcome, especially "I've Been Waiting For You."

Well said, Emmett!

I haven't listened to any of the "Heathen" era live performances of his older stuff, save for one British TV spot, so thanks for this one, Mike.

The Television set from last week, too. I kept meaning to leave a comment.

and where does one find the SRV rehearsals?

SRV didn't tour because Bowie/record company/somebody? didn't follow through with the promise to let SRV & Double Trouble open for Bowie on the tour.
