Outstanding Tears For Fears broadcast from 1985. LIMITED EDITION CLEAR VINYL 2LP British Wave/Electropop duo Tears For Fears, featuring Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, were enjoying life at the top of the charts when they made this live recording in June of 1985. Their successful sophomore album, “Songs from the Big Chair”, had just been released and it was on the promotional tour that they played this lively set at London’s prestigious Hammersmith Odeon.

This show contains the strongest material from their debut album, “The Hurting”, as well as new songs off their recent release, which was riding up the charts at the time. This concert is a testa- ment to the new wave aesthetic embodied by Tears for Fears in the mid-'80s, and this is a show- case set of the band at near perfection. Orzabal and Smith were already press darlings in the U.K., deeply embraced by BBC Radio 1, so the audience is receptive to them and is familiar with the material.

Some bonus cuts here come from another Hammersmith show, this time at the less salubrious Palais - just around the corner from the Odeon recorded in 1983. Contains all their Hits like ‘Mad World’, ‘Pale Shelter’, ‘Change’, ‘Shout’, ‘Everybody wants…’
