Steve Taylor And Some Band – Limelight – 1986

In 1985 Steve Taylor appeared at the Greenbelt festival at Castle Ashby, England. An excellent sound track was recorded and select songs became this album. At this point Steve only had 3 albums out but they provided more than enough material to work with. Steve put together a pretty good band of studio musicians and game them credit as the “Some Band”. Most of the songs appear to have their album arrangements though there are a few things different but unfortunately no extended versions. The album is actually quite short and I’m disappointed they didn’t add a few more tracks which would have easily fit. The highlight of the album for me was his duet with Sheila Walsh covering David Edwards “Not Gonna Fall Away” which was originally from his studio EP “Trans-Atlantic Remixes”
