As you can see, eight of the nine tracks come from their 1990 album Salutation Road. While that seems a lot, my biggest complaint is that it’s too short. I don’t want to lose the Salutation Road songs but I do want live versions of a selection of songs from their two previous albums Boat To Bolivia and Gladstone, Humour & Blue.
I don’t know the original album well enough to argue that these songs are a big improvement on the original studio tracks although this is a sprightly performance.
Playing on the album are:
Martin Stephenson – Guitar/Vocals
Andrea Mackie – Vocals
Gary Dunn – Guitar
Mickey Watson – Keyboards
Anth Dunn – Bass
Malcolm Dick – Drums
I have a bias towards the quality “rock” of Martin Stephenson and the Dainties. I can help but think that in a parallel universe, they are immensely successful.
