About this album

“Acoustic Sunlight” is a live acoustic recording featuring Beth Gibbons (of Portishead) and Rustin Man (alias for Paul Webb of Talk Talk), from a 21 March 2003 concert in Berlin. This performance was part of a tour for their popular 2002 album, “Out of Season.” The only song on this recording that is not from that album is “Candy Says,” a Velvet Underground cover.

The album was only released as a vinyl LP, which disappointed many of their “Out of Season” fans who hadn’t yet caught onto the increasingly popular vinyl revival.

Musicians on this recording : Adrian Utley, Beth Gibbons, Clare Mactaggert, Jason Smith, Lee Harris, Rustin Man/Paul Webb, Simon Edwards

At least 6 other live recordings were made from this tour, but little documentation and nothing really official or complete is available about any of those live recordings or even about the tour itself. Although released on the Go! Beat label, “Acoustic Sunlight” is still shown as an “unofficial release.” Therefore, it appears that there were no “official releases” from this tour and that all of these recordings are unofficial releases on a record label or private bootlegs. The name shown on the album cover or bootleg for this recording is shown in parens after the venue.

11 Feb 2003 - Sala Apolo, Barcelona (“Live Barcelona 2003” - bootleg)
