Cool, the writer is watching us:
In 1968, amongst the cacophony of student protests (internet fan message boards talk of lost TV footage showing Jarre being handcuffed and thrown into a police van),
BTW: clever use of Derek Jarman and Jean-Michel's last name.
I think Derek Jarman filmed Pet Shop Boys' It's A Sin video there.

I can't even begin to describe how poorly that article is written. I've never seen such meandering, non-sensical rubbish in all my life. I'm a professional, published copywriter and if I submitted a piece like that I'd be laughed at and fired. Granted, there are some interesting points in the piece however he keeps getting off topic and introducing things that bear little to no relevance to the point of the article. It's so hard to read.

Yep, I was struggling with it too. Still, any new stuf about Docklands is worth a look.

I am concerned about the covers for these concerts. Which is the most interesting / the best?
1st cover 1989: https://fanart.tv/fanart/music/86e2e2ad ... 17d007.jpg
2nd cover 1996/97: https://fanart.tv/fanart/music/86e2e2ad ... fd0b5f.jpg
3rd cover 2014: https://fanart.tv/fanart/music/86e2e2ad ... 02d456.jpg

Why couldn't the first cover be the same or similar to the VHS release or the one released a few years after? Usually, from all the other live albums available, you can see where it is from.
Nevertheless, "LIVE" or "JARRE LIVE" has something of a mystery despite, for example, not associated fonts or colors.

I like the simple aesthetic of the 1989 cover but yeah, you don't really know what concert it is from. But out of these 3, I think I like the 3rd most. The 2014-2015 remasters might not have been very good, but the artwork/CD booklets of most of the remastered albums are really good.

I've always liked the 96/97 cover art over the others. If I remember correctly, that art was actually used in the original 1988 Docklands programme (as opposed to the bootleg Docklands programme, which featured the Revolutions cover).

Yes it's true.

However, for the original release I will keep "LIVE" and for the bootleg once found I will use the 96/97 cover

Anybody know if the four red, yellow, green, blue abstract colours on the original simple artwork are meant to represent anything?

My dad and I were going to go to the original date (24 September), then that was cancelled and rescheduled for 7 and 8 October. I had just finished freshers’ week at a northern uni, but my new boyfriend and I played hooky and travelled down on the coach for Saturday night. We stayed in a YHA on the Friday evening and then planned to travel back on the overnight coach on Saturday after the concert. On the day it was cold, wet and windy. I had £10 in my purse and had left my credit card in my room back at uni. But we were there. And it was every bit as mind-blowing as I thought it would be. After the concert thousands of people crammed onto the tube and the police were directing people to get onto the next train regardless of where it was going.
