I have been seriously obsessed with these two live versions from ABC. They were released as b-sides to the King Without A Crown single, and I believe they far surpass the original studio recordings. These tracks were killer to begin with, but they just seem to come alive in this concert. I have heard other live versions of these songs, even from the same tour, but these ones rock. The mix is raw, the rhythm section flawless and Martin's vocals soar from full on to falsetto with ease.
The versions here are from the original FM broadcast, so you get a little extra at the beginning, the end, and in the middle!
