I'm happy, anyway - as long as "Night comes on " is included I'm happy!
One or two of the others look promising, one or two less so, but I'm happy to suspend judgment until I hear them. Only fair, I think!

Just delighted to have another new album to look forward to.

Steve Wilcox wrote:Being a person who loves documentaries about bands in the studio or backstage-behind-the-scenes tour footage, I love the idea of an album of soundchecks. But, in my opinion, it would be far better as a BluRay; to me, watching it is as important as hearing it - things like false starts, stopping the band to make a change to the arrangment, jamming out the solos, no peformance lighting, technicians running around, the band not dressed in their stage clothes [Leonard still in a suit I suspect], the feeling of being there. Likely this would appear too unprofessionl to release for sale, though I bet there's a market for it.

Well, if this helps a little bit...I have made some soundcheck videos at the Lucca Summer Festival (2013) :)

Nice video , though since they called this a souvenir of the 2008-2013 tour I think it would have been good to also namecheck Bob Metzger and Dino Soldo

Didn't know that wendy but that must mean it's more a souvenir of the 2012- 2013 tour !
Anyway the namechecks come after the statement ' taking the stage with leonard were ' and in the context of the whole 5 plus year experience so just seemed unfair to me that Bob and Dino were excluded , and Leonard is a man who likes to carefully credit everyone involved!

The album is called "A Souvenir of the Grand Tour" and all the tracks come from 2012-13. The press release specifically says that the songs come from the Old Ideas tour though there is also mention of the accolades Leonard received on his 2008-2013 tours. I suppose 2008-2010 was covered by Songs From the Road.
