Soon As I Found It I Lost It (Live 2002)
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:49:40 PM »
Don't know if anyone else has come across this, but there's a live version of Soon As I Found It... on a compilation LP "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" which was actually released in 2002 the year before "Not A Bad Day". Recorded live at Roehre, Stuttgart, 04.05.02.

Yes, I remember this vinyl album being mentioned back then. I intended to buy it, but never found it and didn't get round trying to order it...  :(
I was at that gig, can't remember seeing anyone do a "professional" recording or attach anything to the mixing desk.  :-\

It would have been worse if you had found it and then lost it Uli!

Hey! Completists!
If you want it you can get it. There are 8 copies for sale on Discogs. (between £2.36 and £8.21 plus postage.)

There were 9 copies but.... :)

Ps. It can't be a 2002 recording if the album was released in 2001.  ???

Hey, cool. If it really was recorded at the Roehre in Stuttgart, it must've been 2002 (because that was TV's first gig at this venue, 2nd was in 2003, also the last because sadly the venue is gone now).
From my memory, talk about this LP happened in 2002. (Couldn't find anything in the archives though.)

Well I know the guy who recorded it (was the first time I met him at this gig), so I'll ask him!  :)

According to the gigs archive this song was played in Germany as early as September 2000. So, quite possible for the version on the LP to be from 2000 or 2001.

Also, in the gigs archive the earliest listing for this song being played live in the U.K. is Saturday 22nd September 2001 at Easington, Rock Garden a whole year later. Seems unlikely.

But I know the set lists are incomplete.

I was driving home from TV at The Hop thinking about how it would be cool to have great acoustic songs like this, Swimming in the Flood and Drowning on Dry land on the second acoustic CD.

Thanks for putting the scan up Uli - saved me a job! Hopefully, I'll post a live audio from one of this year's gigs on youtube over the weekend and add the compilation track as well.

Uli, hope you don't mind that I "borrowed" your scan.

No probs, the scan was done by René anyway!  :)
Told me he hadn't known about this album until TV sent him a copy!
