Includes booklet. Play this at your fantasy draft party to set the mood! Man 's set comes off very well, their hour's worth of jamming working even better in context and worth the price of admission for any fans of hard rock guitar, and of Deke Leonard 's work, especially.
It was after hearing this set that their label chief, Andrew Lauder developed a sudden enthusiasm for live recording, and it's easy to see why -- "Spunk Rock" in all of its glory would sell anyone on that, without a false note struck, and even the excessive moments in songs running plus minutes have their place in this setting.
Hawkwind fares a little less well, mostly owing to the technical problems inherent in recording a heavily electronic rock sound live. It's easy enough for fans of their sound to compensate mentally for the shortcomings, however, as most of what's supposed to be present is there, just not always balanced properly -- the difficulty lies in the small moments, actually, such as Robert Calvert 's vocals, which are difficult to make out on much of "Silver Machine.
Their 14 songs more than live up to expectations, and this set more than rises to the plus years' worth of expectations anyone may have held waiting to hear it. By the time Brinsley Schwarz get to "Surrender to the Rhythm," you're almost past surrender as is the crowd, who -- after some initial confusion -- took to the Brinsleys ; indeed, listening to that performance, you may suddenly feel, for one moment, unstuck in time, thinking like it was still , that Ian Gomm who sounds fantastic , Nick Lowe et al, are the best band you've ever heard in your lives -- and maybe the best band you'll ever hear.
It's also fascinating to hear the crowd -- most of whom were obviously there for Man and Hawkwind , gradually embrace the Brinsleys ' more roots-oriented sound as their set progresses some other acts on the bill were heckled mercilessly, and never made it to the recording , to a loud round of applause and calls for "More!
The packaging on this set is excellent as well, re-creating poster art and advertising and offering biographical information even on the acts that didn't get to perform there was a power failure or whose sets, interrupted by hecklers and fights, proved unusable.
One couldn't hope or ask for more, 35 years after the fact. Not until she heard [her husband] preach for the first time, on his second visit to Sandfields in December , was she confronted in his sermon on Zacchaeus with an insistence that all men are equally in need of salvation from sin.
The message shook her, even frightened her, and she almost resented the teaching which had appeared to place her in the same condition as those who had no religion at all. In a sense, she had always feared God. Her life was upright and yet she knew that she had no personal consciousness of the forgiveness of sins, no sense of inward joyful communion with Christ. In Mrs. I suppose it was conviction. I felt a burden of sin.
I have never forgotten what I read in that book. It showed me how wrong was the idea that my sin could be greater than the merit of the blood of Christ. His death was well able to clear all my sins away.
And there at last, I found release, and I was so happy. Thinking of the submission of Joseph to the will of God, whether in the pit or the pinnacle, the chains or the chariot, in success and in failure, the hymn writer says, Thy way, not mine, O Lord, However dark it be; Lead me by thine own hand, Choose [thou] the path for me.
Smooth let it be or rough, It will be still the best; Winding or straight, it leads Right onward to thy rest. Take thou my cup, and it With joy or sorrow fill, As best to thee may seem; Choose thou my good [or] ill. Choose thou for me my friends, My sickness or my health. Choose thou my cares for me, My poverty or wealth. Not mine, not mine, the choice, In things or great or small. Be thou my guide, my strength, My wisdom and my all.

Grace Chandel, on the run both from the police, who want to arrest her for killing her mortal husband, and the Immortal ex-lover who was the real killer, the possessive Carlo Sendaro "Saving Grace" was welcomed by Tessa, when Duncan and Darius help her escape, Duncan making sure that Carlo will not trouble her again.
The same was not true of Amanda, described by Duncan as "a bad habit". In "The Lady and The Tiger" we met the unprincipled cat-burglar with a passion for circuses, robbery, and year-old Scotsmen, here trying to set up MacLeod so that the Immortal thief she had double-crossed, Zachary Blaine, would not take her head. In the end, she takes Zachary's, but not before Duncan has done all the hard work. Which pretty much set the pattern for all of the Amanda stories to come.
In the season finale, Duncan's old friend, Hugh Fitzcairn, comes to see him, with news that Immortals are disappearing. When they go to see Darius, they find him decapitated inside the church. Returning to Fitz's hotel, they are attacked and Fitz is spirited away, whilst Duncan returns to the church, finding a mysterious book hidden by Darius. It is a history of Immortals written by a secret society of mortals. When these mortals come for Duncan, he is ready and follows them back to their hideout, rescuing Fitz, who is about to be guillotined and confronting their leader, a wild-eyed fanatic who wants to destroy all Immortals.
He gets away, leaving a shattered MacLeod to mourn his friend and teacher. The season ends with MacLeod vowing revenge on the men and pouring Darius' ashes into the Seine, to flow out to the sea "The Hunters". This season opened with a new title sequence and a mysterious voice over explaining who Duncan MacLeod is and giving a quick summary of the Rules of the Game.
Not so mysterious a voice, as we were to find out, as it is the voice of Joe Dawson. In the first story, "The Watchers" , a bitter MacLeod returns to Seacouver, determined to find Darius' killers, but with only the Chronicle left by Darius to guide him. He follows a clue to a bookstore, where the manager, Dawson, denies knowing about the book.
When MacLeod chases down two men watching from across the street, Dawson follows and tells Duncan that he is his Watcher, one of a secret society of mortals who observe and record the history of the Immortals, but never interfere.
He refuses to believe MacLeod's assertion that Darius was murdered by mortals, but is forced to when the leader of the killers is revealed to be his own brother-in-law, James Horton. MacLeod confronts Horton, who shoots him, but not before MacLeod extracts his vengeance for Darius and runs Horton through with his sword.
Believing Horton dead, but now aware of the Watchers, MacLeod carries on with his life and tries to help two old friends, but with differing results. Gregor Powers has become a photographer but has lost touch with his humanity, pushing his feelings for others away to avoid the recurring pain of loss "Studies In Light". Duncan helps him to learn to value his life and the gift of his Immortality, whilst watching his own former lover, Linda Plager, who is mortal, die of old age and infirmity.
Soon after, another Immortal friend, Michael Moore, appears, looking for Mac's help in hunting down Quenten Barnes, Michael's long time enemy, who has reappeared after a long absence "Turnabout". Also reappearing is Joe Dawson, who tries to enlist Duncan's help, as Barnes is hunting down and killing the men who tried and executed him years before "Turnabout". Barnes was buried and has only recently been disinterred. An uneasy peace is struck between Watcher and Immortal, as the terrible truth dawns — Michael is Quenten Barnes, the two sides of his personality fragmented into a schizophrenic existence.
As Quenten slowly takes permanent control, Michael pleads with Duncan to end it and MacLeod kills his friend. During this episode, Mac takes Richie to a martial arts gym, or dojo , run by Charlie DeSalvo, where they intend to train. Thoughts of extra-curricular activities are put aside as the reopening of the antiques shop gets nearer.
After a spooky encounter with a palm reader reminds Mac of the gypsies' warning that he will never marry, he tempts fate by asking Tessa to marry him. Overjoyed, she accepts and, as they plan the wedding, Mac is lured from the shop by a group of Watchers, whose leader, Pallin Wolf, stuns Richie and kidnaps Tessa. Using her as a lure, he entices MacLeod to his home, where he has a lightless room in which he hunts and kills Immortals, using a nightscope to see his prey a la "Silence Of The Lambs".
Fate smiles on Mac by allowing him to defeat Wolf and rescue Tessa despite "The Darkness", but he makes a decision that will haunt him. Sending Tessa with Richie, he stays to rifle the man's files, but as they leave, they are mugged and shot dead. MacLeod runs out to find them both lying in the street. As he holds Tessa in his arms, Richie revives, a newborn Immortal. Grief-stricken, MacLeod sells the store. Richie arrives at the loft one night with a girl he has rescued, who was being pursued by an Immortal "Under Color Of Authority".
From the description, Duncan recognizes that the hunter is Mako, an eternal lawman. The girl is evasive, but it transpires that she is on the run for murdering her husband, who abused her, but she fears that she will be killed if she goes back, as her husband's father runs the town.
Mako doesn't care — he has a warrant and will take her back to stand trial. Richie refuses to stand by and helps her to flee, but when Mako accidentally kills the girl, Richie is enraged and challenges Mako, whom he kills, despite Duncan pleading with him not to.
For the first time, Richie feels the power of a Quickening, but it is tinged with sadness as Mac tells him that he is now on his own and must leave. Duncan takes Anne to a recital by a choir of monks, one of whom, Paul, is an Immortal. Neither man realises that the song being sung is "The Song Of The Executioner", as the unseen impresario who organised the concert is Kalas, an Immortal with scores to settle with both Duncan and Paul.
Kalas kills Paul and then sets about destroying MacLeod, first by framing Joe for dealing drugs then by killing two of Anne's patients and fabricating hospital records to make it look like she is responsible. Duncan realises that Kalas is behind this and, having cleared Joe and Anne, confronts his enemy.
As they fight, Anne sees Duncan fall to his death, but Richie gets her away before Duncan revives. In the midst of this, Richie embarks on a new career in motorcycle racing. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods.
