Live At The Shepherds Bush Empire

This video was filmed during the live at the Shepherds Bush empire, in October 1996, one day after A Short Album About Love had been recorded in the same venue, with the same musicians.

However, Setanta eventually decided not to release the video, because they’d have to pay the image rights for the musicians. Although the video has never been released, a promo VHS was edited. Parts of it have been projected during the 1998 Black Session, and later a copy has been sold on eBay for very high price (£255).

The Setanta promotional VHS has a plain black sleeve with the information on the side sticker (see photo).

It included two songs from the first set, which have not been released on the 2020 DVD.
