additional information
The end-of-year home-coming bash was always triumphant at Tiffanys but the band had extra cause for celebration after the well-earned success of New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) and the associated tour. How better than to celebrate by playing almost the entire album (with the exception of the instrumental Somebody Up There Likes You) peppered with a few favourites from previous releases.

Mel Gaynor was now behind the drums, a position he’d taken up just two months previously. But his presence was already felt, giving the songs a sense of gravitas and solidity they’d previously lacked with Mike Ogletree’s lighter percussive style.

Some of the New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) live versions had already started to transmute with new lyrics, new opening riffs and various alternative ideas peppering the mixes. "This has been the best year of our lives. I hope next year is the best of yours."

The gig was recorded by Radio Clyde and aired before the year was out. The bootleggers seized their chance releasing the entire gig across double vinyl, reproducing it adequately from the original FM broadcast. The icing on the cake was the addition of the rare instrumental of King Is White And In The Crowd (plucked from the obscure Touch: Feature Mist), a necessary chill-out coda after the excitement of the concert.
