David Gray - A Complete Unknown

December 18, 1993
The Wetlands, New York

Disc 1:

  1. The Light
  2. A Century Ends
  3. Lara's Song
  4. New Horizons
  5. Debauchery
  6. Mystery Of Love
  7. What Are You?
  8. Birds Without Wings
  9. Wisdom
  10. Like A Rolling Stone

Let's say this first: this is ESSENTIAL. The first time I heard it, I was in shock: this is a super quality soundboard of David solo in the Big Apple and it is a remarkable performance. This is David on the up: after the release of A Cenury Ends and he is on the crest of a wave. But it doesn't really sound like it's an ordinary gig and I suspect it might be an industry showcase. Passionate versions of Debauchery, Wisdom - an ultra rare Lara's Song (L's Song as released on the Birds Without Wings CD5) - and an unbelievable version of Rolling Stone strewn with profanity at the crowd. Wonderful moments: he's obviously just married and remarks on still getting used to introducing "my wife"... breaking strings and telling the crowd to "ponder the profundities" of the last song!
