#MC50 : Blue Murder live in 1987

Posted by Kevin Boyd, 5 July 2015

July’s #MC50 video is a live recording of Blue Murder in their original lineup from 1987.

This lineup never formally recorded, had just two live tracks released (on Martin Carthy and Watersons box sets) and only played a handful of gigs in the late-1980s so these are rare recordings. I’ve dated this late-1987 but I failed to record the full details at the time so it could possibly be a little later – though it’s unlikely to be after 1988.

EDIT: I’ve remade and re-posted the YouTube video with some amendments and corrections. Thanks to Reinhard Zierke for some additional details.
