Life of Live - Deacon Blue
I'd seen Deacon Blue 3 times before , once at the start , once at the height of their success and once on the reunion tour.
The fourth time was something special. AS is the fashion now they decided to play the whole of Raintown live (I'm guessing for some anniversary or something. The venue was small and full of people like me who knew Raintown off by heart.
They played the lp , had a short break and then came back and did greatest hits set. The highlight was definitely the Raintown section, with the songs fitting perfectly in the more intimate setting.
I've posted one of the lesser known tracks , one of the few not to mention rain or home in the lyric.
