Like "Absolutely Live Vol. I", the main part of this CD is from one concert. With "Absolutely Live Vol. I" the location was Norway. This time the recordings took place in Lille and Montpellier, France - originally released as "C'est La Vie".
Everything recorded on this CD is 100% live, and a lot of the songs were actually written on the road - as most of that year was spent on the road. The songs represent both sides of being on a long tour - the fast songs represent the hectic speedy moods you get into as you try to keep schedules that are often inhuman, and the slow songs represent the melancholic moods that break through sometimes as you miss the people and things that you love.
Again, like on "Absolutely Live Vol. I", some bonus tracks have been added - studio outtakes, live radio performances and concert performances - all previously unreleased material and all digitally re-mastered. There was a little more space left over after the main concert this time, leaving room for seven bonus tracks!
We hope that between these two releases we have managed to capture the essence of Barry's "Albatross years". From his first single "Alberta" on this collection to the last note of "Tempted" on Absolutely Live Vol. I" it's been an incredible journey. There is blood, sweat & tears all over these songs - and he wouldn't want it any other way!!
