That said, on November 18 we’ll be releasing a double CD/double LP collection entitled ‘The BBC Sessions’, with one disc comprising radio sessions (duh) recorded from 1996-2001, and disc two culled from a December 2001 gig.  More news and/or MP3 leakage to follow, promise.

  2. Jay Says:

    Just going by song titles, it looks like the live disc includes VU, Kraftwork, and Thin Lizzy covers.

    >>it looks like the live disc includes VU, Kraftwork, and Thin Lizzy covers.

    you got 2 out 3….. I;m sure The Model is the B & S original as found on their ” Fold Your Hands” album, not The Kraftwerk song…
