Bootleg of the Week: The Tyrany Never Stops

Another common bootleg which, misspellings aside, is rather good is:  "The Tyrany Never Stops." From the start, with the misspelling of "Tyrany" you know this one may have a few mistakes! This disc is a recording made live at Offenbach, Stadthalle (Germany)   on March 25, 1991.

The "label" is "Experience In Word & Music" and is catalogue number EWM 008. It features 12 tracks from the Tyranny Tour. The color picture sleeve artwork is directly lifted from the Never Stop single. Although in booklet format, the inside of the actual booklet is blank. The back artwork duplicates the same. The disc itself is rather plain. The sound is average, with much audience participation. As with any live 242 performance, it is always a treat to see how 242 will perform variations of their songs. No performances are ever the same! My personal favorite from this disc would likely be the U-Men/W.Y.H.I.W.Y.G. medley. "Mixed By Fear" is somewhat unique with Richard signing the chorus "DSM One..." Although it seemed much more rare "back in the day," I see this one a little more common now and it usually retails between $25.00 - $50.00

The track listing follows, with corrections in parenthesis:

Rhythm of Time  10:21
Masterhit  5:02
Soul Manager  4:28
The Untold  4:44
Until Dead  4:29  (Until Death Us Do Part)
Mixed By Fear  12:52 (This World Must Be Destroyed/DSM01/Moldavia medley)
Im Rhythmus Bleiben  3:45
U-Men W.Y.H.I.W.Y.G.  5:05
Gripped By Fear  5:04
Tyrany For You  4:39  (Slo-Mo)
Never Stop  4:44
Headhunter  4:55

  1. I like the "Soul Manager" track on this one ! U-Men/W.Y.H.I.W.Y.G. medley is really good one.
