Live II
Originally sold at League gigs, this live recording has been out of print for many years. It shows the League at that time on stunning form; an integrated, interlocking unit tackling some truly finger-bending compositions and making it all look and sound easy. Of course it takes a lot of work to sound that effortless and this particular incarnation were incredibly tight. Whilst a lot of the material here will be familiar to long-term enthusiasts there are still many highlights and celebratory moments to be discovered. The tripping figures in Digitalis are sure to convey a thrill to anyone whose ever picked up a guitar and played against an unforgiving metronome, whilst the the throwaway humour tucked inside Spasm For Juanita
offers a knowing wink to the audience who undoubtedly enjoy the deliberate wobble on the high-wire act. The audience at Victoriaville are supportive and keen as can be heard at the end of Circulation III where they are eager to show their appreciation in final three gaps, and again (though this time more playfully) at the end of Circulation IV. This DAT recording captures the spacious nature of the venue and whilst it works well enough for the combined might of the guitars, Patricia Leavitt’s soulful voice can sound a little remote. That said, the cascading melody she introduces around the one-minute mark of Your Mary is simply sublime.

Stunning!
Now definitely my favorite LoCG recording. It really boogies along, stunning.Stangely the download gave me two copies of the ’Eye of the Needle’ track which I didn’t notice until after I’d burned the tracks to CD! Wasn’t there supposed to be some CD cover art coming for this?
Written by Fabio Palmieri
Sort of a "missing link" between Show Of Hands and Intergalactic Boogie Express - live in Europe 1991, this CD actually used to be on sale at 1991 Europe shows and, occasionally, at GC courses. Although bearing some similarities with the two aforementioned, it contains many tunes which cannot be found elsewhere, and it’s the only available release to contain not-fully-improvised circulations: here such pieces reveal to follow - at least - one pre-determined instruction: ascending in the given key.And here you can also find a rare rendition of The Moving Force played as a full-group piece, without the famous solo wtitten by Cathy Stevens. This details apart, this the LoCG at their best. ...looking forward to ’Get Crafty I’...
