The Stone Roses Live At Oxford Polytechnic, Oxford 1989

Recorded live at Oxford Polytechnic, Oxford on 24.05.1989 - This bootleg has become increasing hard to track down.


Not the greatest vocal display from Ian, it has to be said - For me, this is all about John's and Mani's performances. The guitar and bass are as clear as any Roses' boot out there.

Additionally, listening to this boot makes you feel as though you are there in the crowd, which is nice.


1.  She Bangs The Drums   5:03
2.  I Wanna Be Adored   6:01
3.  Elephant Stone   3:59
4.  Made Of Stone   5:06
5.  Waterfall   5:28
6.  Where Angels Play   3:34
7.  Shoot You Down   4:58
8.  Standing Here   4:31
9.  Sally Cinnamon   4:11
10.  I Am The Resurrection   11:23

Yet another provided by Scott from Liverpool who has provided a MASSIVE service to Roses fans around the world. Many, many thanks again.

Will send you the password Arco.

Got pissed off that within 5 hours of this being posted, 34 people had downloaded it, and NOT ONE has said thank you.

It only takes a minute, as you know buddy.

Just downloaded this Henry, many thanks.

Remember getting this bootleg & the Brum Irish Centre gig from someone that I used to trade with via the NME small ads, back in summer 1989. It got lost during the years that followed & I've not heard this for the best part of 20 years.

I saw the band at Leeds Warehouse & Leeds Poly in May & June 89 & so this is definitely my era for the Roses.........wish that I'd bl**dy recorded those 2 gigs as I've never seen either of them circulated.

thanks very much

henryvilla said...

No worries Strang Times. Thanks for your comment buddy.

Yeah, never heard or come across those two Leeds gigs unfortunately - I don't think they were recorded as they would surely have surfaced by now.

Glad to be able to help you out with this boot.

Cheers, HV:)
