"This was the last of two nights that Jimmy played with us in Roma early in 1996. After the very good performance we had the night before, we took a digital 24 track recording system to the venue, to capture the show for a live album. Unfortunally something went wrong and all we had was a bunch of blank tapes.
We thought that the magic of the night was lost forever. Two good fairies were at work, though. A fan gave me one week later a Super-VHS video recording of the show (which I immediatly edited in a pro studio. See "JUNK FOOD Live - the video" and Obvious Music). But, most of all it came out that the soundman had made a DAT board recording of the show. Of course the sound was not fantastic, and I found the balance in the first three songs at least disappointing, with the guitar either too quiet or too loud, so that I had to make a lot of editing. But I liked the result and assembled this CD for my own (and Jimmy's) fun.
I will certainly make another live album in the future with more appropriate equipement, but I think this one gives you a fair idea of an italian night with my fellow the Indio!!"
