Hi Dudes.  :-D
I would like to know which live-versions of this song you prefer. For me the best version is from "Show". It has the best lenght (not too short, not too long) and it was played so powerful and perfect. I love the bass-crash simon does at the end of this song. Amazing.  :shock:

Please let me know what you like.

Cheers, Tr#

some live versions of a forest that i really like are from london (6/13/93), london (5/3/92), Werchter (5/7/81), and london (1/19/91).  there are others.  so many to chose from.

I agree with Crowbi_wan, the Finsbury version was amazing (even if Simon made some mistakes  :lol:  ) with that sort of "competition" between Robert and Boris as who could be the quicker one  :shock:  and I had the chance to be part of the audience, my best concert  :smt038

Being a "forest" person, I think this question suits me perfectly.  My favorite is from London '91 at Wembley.  The Show version is also great but the Kilburn National show from May 92 is becoming my 2nd favorite.  There are so many great performances of this song it is hard to choose but these ones have great sound/recordings which gives them an edge.  The versions I don't like are those where they go into "Forever".  I have nothing against "Forever" but "A Forest" is just not the same with it.

Oh, back to the subject at hand... For now I would pick Jacksonville '92, but that may change with time. I actually was blown away by the Saint-P?re '05 version the other day. It had never really caught my attention before, but :shock:.

And Ron's right, boots with superb sound quality always portray the performance as better. I've heard some pretty bad boots, and when I find a better version it's like hearing it for the first time. And there's many things I'll probably never hear because the quality is just not pleasant to listen to. :x

I really love the 5/3/92 version. They were really jamming.

I really like the "Play-Out" version... the middle part with the drums is excellent!!!  8) But you're right Tristan, the show-version is also very amazing when Simon gets angry!!!  :twisted:   8)

Just more idle threats from the temptress.  

Also for Doubt, that Play Out Version is the London Wembley 91 version.  I forgot about it being on "official" video.  Thanks for the reminder.

kilburn national is really great

i also tend to like some older live versions like those around '85 a lot, they seem to be more straightforward than jamming versions but that's why they just have this huge drive sometimes. for instance i just happened to listen to the birmingham 85-09-20 today and i found the version on it suddenly really striking  :smt035

i just listened to the finsbury park show.  a forest rocks on this one.   :rocker robert goes nuts on his wah wah pedal and the song seems like it continues longer then the band expected.  no extra vocals or anything.  just some great jamming.   :smt035
