John Cale live 1983
My first "new" post is a fantastic live performance by the great John Cale from March 7th 1983 in the Markthalle in Hamburg. Just him solo with his guitar and piano, very intense, but also very charming as he was in pretty good mood, joked with the audience and seemed to have a good time himself. Until then I had only heard very little by John Cale, but after this concert I was hooked. I have seen him a few times since then, mostly solo but 2003 he played a free open-air in Oldenburg with a band.
The sound quality is pretty good as it was later broadcasted on NDR 2.

The second post is a performance John Cale gave in the studios of BFBS in Cologne on February 5th 1984 in Alan Bangs' show Nightflight. It's not the complete show, only a few songs, among them also a Jonathan Richman song and "Song to the siren" by This Mortal Coil (played on 33rpm!), but that's what was on the tape.

Tracklists are in the comments!
Looking through my CD archive I found another live recording by John Cale: Fragments of a rainy season. This was released 1992 by Hannibal/Rykodisk. I don't know when and where it was recorded, but there also is a DVD of the same title but with a different tracklist...
The sound quality is perfect. This time I encoded the files with mp3pro at 96 kbps, so don't be worried when you see that rate.
