Compiler's notes:This is a compilation of every song from the European tour. Last year I put together a compilation of the American tour.
As before, I've compared each version of every song from all the recordings I have (nearly all of them!) and picked the best version to my ears. I'm no expert on recording equipment so I have no idea what the difference is between the mics the tapers use, what quality they are or even how much they cost. I don't care as long as the end result sounds good, so I'll leave the expertise to the tapers!
A lot of the acoustic songs I've selected are from the first show of the tour Antwerp Feb 11, an outstanding recording. Some noted it as near soundboard in quality. All the songs from that first set are included here. Many of the songs from the electric set are from the excellent recordings from Amsterdam. I've put all the piano songs together onto Disc 2. Disc 3 is all the songs from the main electric set bar 'No Hidden Path' which has had to go on Disc 4 with the short encores. Disc 5 is the long encores plus 'The Sultan'.

Note: the 2008 summer european tour compilation (4-CD) is also available here on this blog, as well as the e 2007 American tour compilation here.
