October 29, 1998
Kesselhaus, Berlin

Air -
Introduction
Talisman
Remember
J'ai Dormi Sous L'eau
Le Soleil est Pres de Moi
Kelly Watch the Stars
La Femme D'Argent
Be a Bee > Tomorrow Never Knows > Sexy Boy
Le Voyage de Penelope
Trente Millions d'Amis
Le Slow
New Star in the Sky

Le Voyage de Penelope reminds me a lot of Funkadelic, and the Tomorrow Never Knows needs to be listened to.

This is my first comment here though I've read the site for a while. I'm so looking forward to listening to this set.

Air saw me through tertiary college and university, chilling me out and getting me ready to go out. I just wish All I Need was part of this set. Ah, well, you can't have everything.

No Beth Hirsch on stage that evening, unfortunately. Thanks for posting! I think you will enjoy the set - the quality is pretty amazing, and the arrangements are pretty fresh.

Excellent... thank you Anon. Will repost it with the correct title.

Great set--interesting to compare this recording to the 11/2/98 Shepherd's Bush show. Four days apart, but such different styles--they kept everything inside its 4-5min. song box in the Shepherd's set; so much more room here.

Mike said...

Very interesting... My live Air collection is pretty limited and does not include the 11/2 show. I would like to hear it though.

Jude and Mike in Va - Thanks for the comments.

"Mabook" is a wrong title. This is "Trente millions d'amis" or "30 millions d'amis", a psyché version of a french TV show's générique (a TV show about animals).

Enjoy the proof here :

Thanks, JT. That's how it was labeled when I got it, but I also knew it was wrong. Also, it sounds as though they say "Mabrook" in the song's introduction. In any case, I am going to change it tonight on the site. Thanks!

Of course you thought of Funkadelic, isn't that song more or less "Maggot Brain"?

Thanks, belatedly, for that set too! (april 25)

It is, right?!??!!!

You're most welcome... we are coming to the end of the run. It's been a year now.

Mike said...

Thanks again, JT. It is updated now. I am still open to further corrections. But only one more. I can't take too much criticism.
