Notes

"Soundboard Live Recording" means: it's a hybrid of disc 4 from Funkin' Copenhagen (audience recording) and a soundboard recording surfaced one year later

Track 1 & 10 appear misspelt as "Guitar Solo Intro & Who Knows? & Voodoo Chile - Slight Return" & "77 93 11"

Track 15 is not a performance by Prince, it's the audience chanting during the break before the encores and is listed as "Audience Chant: Copenhagen We Be Shakin'"

This is Sabotage's second release of this aftershow from the Copenhagen stop of the One Nite Alone tour - their first being the audience recording 'Funkin' Copenhagen' released 12 months prior to this. This particular release is recorded straight from the soundboard, and as you would expect the quality is tremendous. At the time I write this comment (2006), this is the only soundboard recording widely circulating from the European leg of the tour, and thankfully the quality and content of the show are every bit as impressive. As Sabotage have pointed out in the linear notes to accompany this, there are a few flaws, however they remain untouched and are left intact as they appeared the night of the show. The most obvious occur during Eric Leeds solo during 'Brick House' and Greg Boyer's during 'Hair' where there is some minor distortion which leads to some slight crackling. The show is a stunning 75 minute set and one of the few 2002 aftershows which improve with every listen. It includes the finest live version of 'Whole Lotta Love' from the tour followed in quick succession by a scorching 'The Question Of U'. The mid-section of the show has Prince on bass, and his solo to close out 'Hair' is one of those moments during a recording where your mouth drops at the man's talents. The show includes a hilariously terrible version of 'Prince & The Band' where Prince attempts to rap the lyrics over a drum loop which is running at an erratic speed, which leads him to fluffing the lyrics - certainly worth a laugh. The closing version of 'Dolphin' is very mellow and subdued in comparison to many others from the same era, and is a great way to end a quality-stuffed show.
