The Guitar 
More DC news (as Cerysmatic catches up after a 5-day road trip) with the tracklisting from the 2-CD 'The Best of The Durutti Column'. The album was planned to go on sale at that gig but in true Factory style a last minute glitch meant that this was not possible. Amazon.co.uk is selling it for a very respectable £10.99 and their site shows the artwork which is similar to the recent flyer for the Bridgewater Hall gig, featuring as it does, Rachel McFarlane's photo of the bare-torsoed Vini Reilly. Here are the tracks that made it to the final listing:

Disc one

1. Sketch For Summer
2. Conduct
3. Sketch For Winter
4. Lips That Would Kiss
5. For Belgian Friends
6. Danny
7. Never Known

10. Prayer
11. Spent Time
