    Yesterday I got the Allright-albam from a guy in England. I’ve been listening to it, and I have to come to the conclusion that song 9, 10, 11 and 12 are not from Pinkpop 1993. In the intro of Cross your heart Lester talks about ‘this evening’. Pinkpop was on a morning (I was there). In the last song (I wish you would) Lester talks about ‘this set’. Pinkpop didn’t have sets…it was just one set! Also the recordingsound changes between song 8 and 9. The first 4 songs are definatly from VPRO. Song 5, 6, 7 and 8 are from Pinkpop. But where are the last four songs recorded? I presume in Holland, cause I think that I hear some Dutch talking in the public. Anyone an idea?

    About recordings with Mick Jagger. The Famous Blues Session etc is recorded in May 1992 or June 18th 1992 (see timeline)? Is it true that there are also live recordings of Red Devils and Mick?
