Just before Christmas 1994, ‘Reconciliation’ played in a 14th Century venue in the small town of Detmold in North Germany. Sometimes in a gig if the band were called back for a third or fourth encore a pre-arranged informal tune would be dedicated to the location. In this example the tune begins with an edgy off beat set up between the didgeridoo and the bodhrán. A large sea shell played in an attacking lead style launches the tune into an evocative expression of modern Germany.
