THE WISH (22/2/87) 5.09 TRACKS
Track performed live from time to time from 1990 onwards, and more frequently on the Ghost of Tom Joad tour.
Recorded between January and June 1987 although initial recording actually took place in 1986 in both LA and NY but Bruce was unhappy with the results. Most of the songs were recorded at Bruce’s home studio and mix downs done at later dates, along with adding in parts from individual band members. Two For The Road was recorded in February 1987 at Thrill Hill. The two songs for “A Vision Shared” (I Ain’t Got No Home & Vigilante Man) album were recorded in Spring of 1987. (see below)
