This is about two-thirds of the full session. Very good performances of the songs – Reeves’ guitar work got more refined as these sessions went on.
The interview gets very interesting when he talks about Brian Eno’s working methods in the studio – mockingly at first,but then gets more serious in his description of how it works. Love his impression of Brian

Notes on the sound.
There were small pops, clicks, and small jumps suggesting CD-r rot. I tried to de-click these out a little, with limited success. On this session, the speed was increased by 2% to match other sessions.

I have been going through the 1997 radio session broadcasts. The task I embarked upon was first and foremost to get all the broadcasts I have to the same speed. Allowances were made for a song being done in a different key, and appears that may have occurred twice (this seemed to have been as far as I can tell on two different songs, once for each).

I have found the 1997 radio session performances so good and interesting overall, I concur with an earlier appeal by Steve:

Please share these broadcasts if you have them:
1 Detroit WHYT, 22nd September 1997
2 Montreal CHOM 97.7 , 25th September 1997
3 A full broadcast of this Chicago 93 XRT 16th October 1997 session – and/or one without the pops and clicks.
4 The full broadcast of KROQ LA Tammy Bruce Show 10 Sept 97
5 To add to this, if you have a better quality version of any of the broadcasts that have appeared on Bowie Station,
