This choice come from 1995 and is made not for its musical excellence, but for its originality. I love the fact that Bob will try anything, and seemingly often without bothering too much with all those annoying rehearsals. The harmonies are not perfect, and some more work could have been done on the arrangement, but simply for doing it, I think this recording needs a place in this series.
And I also wanted to include this because in the original article on this performance, all three of the videos have now vanished. One or two going, yes, but all three!!!???
However since there seems to be a tendency to lose these videos here is another one – a different evening and a slightly different version. They never did seem to get those pesk harmonies right.
