Virginia Astley & Friends at The Riverside Studios, Hammersmith 8th October 1985

This live recording of Mindless Days is wonderful! I love all the ambient sounds at the beginning and Virginia talking! She sounds so young and bashful - which, I suppose is in character, but I always thought she must be secretly very confident since she went out there and played the sort of music she did. But now I just don't know. She's such a mystery! I've also never seen this picture of her before. It's a pretty great picture and goes well with the song. 

Also, this video was just posted three days ago. I've noticed that new Virginia stuff keeps appearing online, slowly by surely.  Some small hope...
