Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Rumours Live 1993

I guess I could consider myself lucky to have so many Depeche Mode concerts in my collection, but so many have crappy quality. Excepting, of course, the 101 discs - which still enjoy considerable play in the old stereo. This one is about the best I have from this era, one in which I had pretty much written them off as being done and so did many others, apparently. It was in the middle of Dave Gahan's very public heroin problems and it got old hearing about it to me so I just tuned out. It's gratifying to know they soldiered on without my inestimable custom and that they also continued to sound great and make wonderful music. So, please enjoy this nice document of their live prowess and I will sift through my many boots and seek the best sounding ones for future posts.

Thank you for this post!

DM has been with me since high school - I'll often move on (musically) and go months without giving them a thought. And then something (like your post) reminds me of the friend that was so much a part of my life - and it all comes flooding back.

And thank you for all your posts - Yours is one of my favorite blogs to read!
