Usually, Bob's live versions of songs trump the original studio release, as great as many of them are. But this is one album track that is still number one for me. The production is spare and beautiful, and Bob's singing is right on the money. There's certainly nothing wrong with the various live performances (I'd like to see one myself!), but he's never topped the take on "Oh Mercy".


Whoa! Better than Supper Club...? Surely you've made some mistake there, sir/madam!

Nah, I'll still take "Oh Mercy". The Supper Club version is cool, although the intro sounds like they were planning to do "Shooting Star" before Bob changed his mind right before singing.

Guess it takes all kinds... That intro is what makes the song so great.
