Album of Yesterday

Tales from the Big Bus, by Fish (1997): I have a tendency to dig relentlessly through the cutout bins at CD stores in hopes of finding some obscure treasure (as my girlfriend discovered this weekend!). It's because of things like this. This 2-CD official bootleg (basically) from Fish's Sunsets on Empire tour was sourced from a small chain CD shop in a local mall. To my knowledge, it was never actually release in the United States, so I have no idea how it got here. It's the full show from Koln, Germany from that tour, so it therefore includes lots of piscine babblings, some of which are in German! Still, it's a fun listen and gives you an idea of how Fish, when he's on his game, can get a crowd right in the palm of his hand.
