The first live album I was ever blown away by.
When I was attending college in my teen years, I had a good friend, Fish, who had impeccable musical taste. He introduced me to the work of The Durutti Column, and if memory serves me right, this was the record which first turned me on to their oeuvre.
Nearly 30 years later, it still sounds magnificent. Hunt down this album, and hope that Factory will reissue this as a Blu-Ray one day.

I had posted a video by legendary Finnish jazz-prog bassist Pekka Pohjola recently. While doing my usual stumble across social media, I came across another Pohjola, this one being Verneri.

Look for his latest release, Bullhorn, over at his Bandcamp site.
