Hi there!

I was going through my Wetton collection this evening and came across my copy of Akustika.  I looked for where this performace (or these performances) originated from exactly and when and did not find it in the liners.  Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks!

First solo tour of the colonies---'95. Tour went from Alexandria,VA up to Quebec City,taking in Philly TLA,Bottom Line NYC, Buffalo,Canton---we recorded nearly all of them.Bit of overdubbing on 'Christina'---couldn't resist it,but the bones are real.
Tour Manager Rick Kelly introduced me to Nathan's Dogs on N.J.Toynpike,and I've been a fan ever since. We drove most of the shows, just the two of us,and it stays in my memory as one of the most pleasant tours I've ever done. I had a lot to prove to myself at that point as well.

Alexandria, VA -- the intrepid Birchmere.  It's been remodeled since then.  Same venue Asia graced just a few short months ago.  As for the Bottom Line in NYC (R.I.P.), I hold the venue and its memory in the highest esteem, it's where I first saw JW.

Nathan's dogs ROCK.  They are all along the rest stops on the I-95 parking lot.

Thanks Johan for the info.  It certainly does sound like a pleasant tour.  I was actually introduced to Nathan's Dogs this past week.  My parental units sold me on Nathan's.  Here in the States anyways, you can buy them at the grocery store, but I am sure a fresh one from the establishment is even better!  Time for lunch!


UPDATE!:  According to the parentals, Nathan's is available through QVC too.  Thought you would like to know.

Amen, JK. Nothing can beat a sack of White Castle's sliders.

All this talk of food, I know where I'm eating lunch tomorrow. The kids go back to school officially so for a guy who has a home office, this is like I am being paroled!

White Castle, here I come!

I guess with the title, the tradition of A----a had to be continued somehow, though that has stopped in recent years.  John has also has Amorata and Amata.
I bought Akustika on emusic trying to find something to get there.

That version of Don't Cry from akustika is what really made me a John Wetton fan. I guess I was only a casual fan until I heard that track...
