Live Song Archive #5: “Some Velvet Morning”

It is unfortunate that, as far as I know, there is no live recording of Some Velvet Morning in front of an audience. Whether they ever played it in front of an audience is unknown to me. However, they did play it at least once during their soundchecks in September 1993. The below recording (at The Venue in London on 3 September 1993) is the only full, extant live recording of this song that I am aware of. All of the other songs played in this soundcheck were also played during the subsequent show, except this one. Perhaps it was cancelled at the last minute? In any case, the song sounds wonderful live, so this is a very valuable recording.
