Personally I knew that I hadn’t been in presence of such greatness since the three shows at The Brixton Academy in south London in March 1995. …. That night’s standout among a long list of standouts, was for this fan Tryin’ To Get To Heaven, which Bob somehow channelled from a realm of divine and poetic musicality down to us mere mortals…

..And what came next ..was both breath-taking and mind blowing: a stunning, dare it be said definitive version of Tryin’ To Get To Heaven. Bob’s vocal were fragile, tender, controlled – yet always on the edge of breaking. His piano playing just holding a few soft chords and the band proving their worth with another superb backing. In one song Bob gave us everything our hearts were longing for.
