This was the third and last night of John’s first visit to the club and Australia, and from Bruce’s introduction we learn that Channel 9 were filming part of his first set for use on the ‘Sunday’ show – just one of the regular media disruptions that occurred when someone notable visited. This may have affected the set list, so we get some variation on the night before. I must have checked the previous night’s recording, because the room mic (and so audience response) is at a better level. On a technical note, there was a bad dropout over the opening line in track 9 of the third set. As an admission to those that are paying close attention, I patched in part of the same line when it recurred for the sake of continuity. Some of the support act was recorded this time as well, so that set has been included also.
