The Show I値l Never Forget (Book Da Capo)


For some inexplicable reason, attending concerts will always hold lingering memories for almost anyone. The Show I’ll Never Forget finds 50 different writers giving personal takes on memorable concerts.
What is fascinating about the book is that the narrators range in almost every capacity: age, gender, taste, era, genre, and beyond. To list but a few of the artists who were the subject of review: Bruce Springsteen, Public Image Ltd., Nina Simone, Bill Evans, Rush, Billy Joel, R.E.M., Miles Davis, and Kevin Spacey. The tone of recollection ranges from rose-colored (and perhaps bong-watered) longing for a bygone era. Surprisingly, some of the strolls down memory lane are done with humorously embittered hues, with the band or artist playing a minor role in what one would expect to be “their” tale. One interesting “two-part” entry is Robert Burke Warren and Holly George-Warren’s separate accounts of Van Morrison’s performance at New York’s Beacon Theater on November 30, 1989. Reading this work, I can still recall the excitement of going to concerts as a teenager and returning home with new ideas. Though some entries within the tome traipse the aisles of self-absorption a little too fervently, the book is funny, touching, and a vicarious thrill for those who wish they could experience many of the artists who left this world’s stage long ago.
