Dublin - 2nd Nov 1991- Olympia Theatre

Sean O'Brien ·
Long shot here....but this was the best show of any artist I have have ever been to, and I'm trying to gather some info on it. For instance, does anyone have: 1. Setlist from that show 2. Photos from that show I think "Left Hand" from that Olympia gig ended up on the "Ghost Cars" fanclub cd.....so the show was recorded. Does anyone know of any other recordings from that night out there? Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you!

From notes I scribbled on the night: Mean To Me There Goes God Tall Trees Into Temptation Weather With You Chocolate Cake Left Hand Hole In The River Don't Dream It's Over Fall At Your Feet ?? Fame Is Something So Strong When You Come -------- Kill Eye Italian Plastic Sister Madly ------- World Where You Live ?? Better Be Home Soon The first unknown song was noted as "Sweet.." Jimi Hendrix? So it either had "Sweet" prominent in the lyrics, sounded like Hendrix, or at a big stretch they...

According to my notes it was actually Love You Til The Day I Die that ended up on the Ghost Cars live fanclub compilation, and the only track I know of from this show that is even remotely available. Left Hand from Ghost Cars was apparently recorded at the Edinburgh Playhouse in Scotland on 19th June 1992, along with Better Be Home Soon and 20th Century Boy . I do stand to be corrected however, since there's always the possibility the linear notes on the fanclub release were mislabelled.

No, Sean was correct. On the Ghost Cars fan club disc "Left Hand" was recorded at the Olympia in Dublin. It's the sole performance to be released from the show, which is a pity because it was one of the best shows I've ever seen them do - and more than a little frustrating to know the entire show in on a DAT tape somewhere. However the majority of their return to Dublin nine months later at the National Stadium was released on the "Foreplay" fan club disc. Only two Ghost Cars tracks...

Thanks for the clarification @The Ligature , it was definitely my error. It looks like when I initially ripped the CD all those years ago I must have split Track 7 (Tail of a Comet) into two separate files, deciding that the song/jam that follows Tail was a cover of 20th Century Boy. This in turn threw my tracklisting out by one, which made me assume Love You 'til the Day I Die was played at the Olympic Theatre, being Track 9, not Left Hand , which was the official Track 9. I've since fixed...

To my ears it's purely a freeform jam that developed at the end of "Tail Of A Comet" which they were occasionally performing/road testing during the Woodface tour where the guitar riff at the end probably suggested the T-Rex song so Neil stuck a spontaneous vocal ad lib onto - it's literally the final seconds of the song, but it IS reminiscent of the T-Rex song. There's a few examples where the same thing has occurred with Beatles songs/lyrics because the song endings aren't yet etched in...
