Recorded in Heino, Holland - July 14th, 1995 - 71 minutes.

Recorded with the band used on the Feel tour and a definite move towards a funkier sound. This was a hot night and the band were hot too! The original soundboard recording makes for a good live album and, as you would expect, Glenn is in tremendous form.

There are really excellent, funked-up versions of 'You Are The Music...', 'Your Love Is Alright' and 'Gettin' Tighter', where George Nastos' ability to lay down some really cool funky statements comes into it's own. Overall this was a great band. The guitars mixed Nastos' funk with Patton's harder classic rock sound, whilst Paul Kirkham always seemed to be the one bass player that Glenn was happy with filling his own shoes.

Beware though, a little niggle, obviously from the audience, forces Glenn to issue four letter tirades, so be careful playing this in front of the kids!!

Definitely one of the better quality boots and worth a look!

I agree that Funky Business is very enjoyable...I especially get a kick out of Glenn's scathing of an audience member who must have made a remark about Glenn's "soulful" side. Great performances throughout and very cool artwork as well! I only wish he had played a few more tunes from "Feel" (as yet unreleased at that point).

This was one of the better shows I've seen
by Glenn. I remember being 'shocked' in a good way
to see Glenn without the long hair as he had
during the autumn tour of 1994

It was a fonky show, and on of the last with
Glenn Deitsch who messed up either Burn or You Fool No One.

I agree that this is a very enjoyable boot. Great quality and song selection- if you are an avid fan. I view Glenn's reaction to the fans complaining (Can't quite make out what he said) as comical in a way, but I'm sure what the fan said was disrespectful at the least. And of course Glenn set him straight. But I must say in the heckler's defense that if he were going to this show to see the former Deep Purple/Black Sabbath "Rock Star"- unknowing of Glenn's intended musical direction- he was probably thrown for a loop after hearing 2 or 3 rock songs then "Push" followed by a lounge act like intro.... I can see some audience members being quite surprised by this at that time. Unfortunately, not everyone has a broad appreciation of music.

Funky Business is a good one. I was at the show in Heino... and i think it's a miracle that it sounds as good as it does on the cd cause a lot went wrong with the audio at the concert.

I also like the Hughes -Dino In Gino (Milano) double recording...

a late reply to Funky Business.
Quite obviously they didn't get the personnel list on the sleeve right. Mike Patto, singer/keyboarder died from cancer in 1980. The pics show Ruben Valtierra who has also been in Weird Al Yankovich's Band for years.
Anybody know if the rest of the line-up is quoted correctly and if Glenn played bass on any of these tracks?
Best, Chris
