Jordan: the Soundboard. Dublin Point – December 9th 1990

A little Easter egg for the faithful here. There have long been rumours of a soundboard recording of the Jordan tour circulating. So here it, revealed after 27 and a bit years, and a pristine front-of-house mix straight off the desk.

Not without the odd fault here and there – there’s a bit of a wobble at the beginning of Cruel, and the bass is a little overcooked – but until the official live album surfaces, this is about the best you’ll hear the Jordan tour.

The newspaper review is a little wide of the mark (one might say he missed the point…) – this was the last night of the tour and a pretty riotous and fun gig by the sound of things.

  2. Really great! I’ve listened to it 2x now this morning, as I’ve been catching up on news/email/etc. Wonderful!

  3. Great recording. Third place after the BBC Reading Concert and BBC Cambridge concert.

    It may be me, but to my ears Paddy sounds like he has had enough of touring and sounds rather tired and not giving it his all in this concert….

  4. Hi there,
    hello from Canada! Is there a download link for this? I can’t seem to find it.
    Would love to hear this on a proper stereo, and in my car 😉
    Wow, never thought I’d hear audio from this tour.
    J:TC is my favourite!

  5. This is wonderful. Me and my wife who was then heavily pregnant with our now 27 year old son saw this tour at Cambridge Corn Exchange. Suzy’s seat was broken and we pointed this out to a steward after The Trashcan Sinatras finished their set. We weren’t very hopeful of anything happening but after 10 minutes or so the steward came back and apologised for the broken seat, but as the show was sold out there weren’t any others seats available..could we follow her please? She led us to a private box with arm chairs just to the right of the stage! What a great gig! We sang our hearts out all the way through.

  6. I’d like to get a copy of the recording as well.

    In lieu of having a key to the Tardis (dr. who’s time machine), I yearn for any performances I can get. I miss PS.

  7. I also notice the artefacts due to compression, so if there is any chance of a lossless version that would be great indeed!

    Thanks in advance and thanks for sharing this great recording!

  8. Absent a link for a download. the only way to listen to this in your car is to open this page on a browser on your phone and play it through bluetooth. Please add my name to the list of those that would welcome a lossless version to download. Thanks.
