Tortoise - Live at City Slang Festival, Cologne Germany, August 15, 1996
A+ quality recording of the mighty Tortoise during their early peak Millions Now Living Will Never Die era. Almost 20 years later, I still can’t fully wrap my head around a group of dudes that combined Klaus Dinger, Richard D. James, and King Tubby this well. All the primo cuts from the first few releases made it into the set, which is big fun. At a time when the Bulls were setting an NBA record for most regular season wins, it’s hard to tell which Chicago group had a better year. Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman did lose ten games … just sayin’.
