Info below from SRV Gig Database:
Last Farewell - Albuquerque, 28nov89, & Denver, 29nov89
[Swingin' Pig, TSP-CD-079] (68:37, 11 tracks)
A combo of Tingley arena and Denver McNichols arena shows which was recorded during the ‘In Step' tour 1990 somewhere in the USA. Voodoo Chile (s.r.) is about 11 min. long; it drags you just way up into the next lunar orbit, I mean it gets really deep, especially at 4:30 min !! No more to say about this MUST for every Stevie Ray Vaughan fan. The sound is quite good, though it maintains to be ‘just' a private live recording that contains no multi-track sources. Last Farewell, One of the Last, Scuttle Buttin, and every other boot CD I've seen claiming to be either the last show or Austin, May 4 1990 are ALL THE SAME SHOW. They are all a combination of the Tingley Arena and Denver McNichols arena shows. These shows took place one day apart. Parts of each were broadcast together as if one show by the Westwood One radio show. Discs of the Westwood one 89 broadcast are numerous, I recommend "Last Farewell" or "Let me Love you Baby" for sound quality compared to the others.
