"Glenn Tilbrook, Busker" : THE WEEKEND MIX
If you are unfamiliar with Glenn Tilbrook's MO on his solo tours, this "Weekend Mix" sums it all up. The man loves to play and he loves his fans. He'll happily take requests, have a few drinks with you, and generally give his all.
Here is a gem from 1994, prior to releasing any of his solo records. It is a set filled with Squeeze hits and rarities, as well as a cornucopia of covers by Randy Newman, Prince, Lennon & McCartney, Roy Wood, Nils Lofgren, The Hollies, Neil Finn, and more.
The venue is a small pub in England and the lucky attendees sound as if they had a few. Most of the time it's charming. Occasionally, you wish someone had a firehose. Still, this is one special set of music. If this goes over well, I have a few more shows from the "pub tour."
