Including a double CD of the Capitol gig including Wedding Cake Island.

Sweet Georgia Brown was from the Entertainment Centre, not the Capitol Theatre.
The full Capitol setlist is apparently:
1. Outside World
2. Only The Strong
3. Place Without A Postcard
4. No Reaction
5. U.S. Forces
6. Written In The Heart
7. Bus To Bondi
8. Short Memory
9. Knifes Edge
10. Power & The Passion
11. Cold Cold Change
12. Somebody's Trying to Tell Me Something
13. Armistice Day
14. No Time For Games
15. Quinella Holiday
16. Lucky Country
17. Back On The Borderline
18. I Don't Wanna Be The One
19. Burnie
20. Run By Night
21. Stand In Line
22. Wedding Cake Island
23. Is It Now?
24. Powderworks
25. Used & Abused
I have all these tracks from various places, apart from Wedding Cake Island.
The FTP you refer to is possibly the one I used to run, but you're right, it's been out of action for several years now.
The best place for finding some live Oils these days is www.dimeadozen.org.  You won't find the Capitol Theatre stuff on there, however, as they have a very strict policy of not allowing anything that has been commercially released in any form.

Hi everyone. Long time Powderworker very rare contributor.

After many years of neglect I have finally found the time to sort through/develop my (currently very small) live Oils collection.

Anyway it turns out that my copy of the Oils live on MTV has a faulty Drums of Heaven. I was wondering if anyone might be able to supply me with a replacement copy or point me to where I might be able to download one?

I am also trying to put together the definitive Capitol Theatre concert and although I am currently short a number of songs but one that I am not sure about is Sweet Georgia Brown. Was this played at the Capitol or was it at the Sydney Entertainment Theatre a year later? If it was from the Capitol gig and someone could provide a copy I would be greatly appreciative.

There used to be an ftp site where a lot of very rare Oils was readily available but it doesn't seem to be working now a days.
