John Peel considered Misty in Roots’ first recording, Live at the Counter Eurovision, to be the best live LP ever made.
Recorded at Brussels’ Cirque Royale in 1979, it confirms that nothing matches the sound of a reggae band at the height of its powers.
Sadly the LP is no longer available, though there are a few secondhand vinyl copies knocking around.
Misty in Roots :: Introduction | Man Kind
Misty in Roots :: Ghetto of the City
Misty in Roots :: Sodom and Gomorra
As I’ve mentioned before, Misty in Roots are the best live band I’ve ever seen. That gig took place at the Town and Country Club (now The Forum) in London’s Kentish Town, sometime in the early–mid 90s. Until this morning it was a distant memory; then I found this.
