Notes and Comments:
  • I personally have this boot and recommend it. The Understanding of Love is a 2 CD set of a Helsinki concert and has some "unplugged" on CD2 - great stuff.
  • The Understanding of Love is a great SRV title, it is on a very appropriately named label, [Music With Love]. "The Understanding of Love" is an excellent quality audience recording of The Culturehouse, Helsinki, Finland [13 tracks, 27 MAR 84]. The second disc also has 4 tracks from Finnish TV, the 3 MTV Unplugged tracks (Rude Mood, P&J and Testify done on his Guild 12-string) and 4 tracks of various live MTV.
  • Understanding of Love has good recordings of the Unplugged songs. On these tracks, the sound quality is excellent and the editing between songs is less than great but acceptable.
  • I recently got a decent copy of "The Understanding of Love." The copy of "Love" is really not the best in sound quality, but the second disc is really cool. It has the MTV unplugged stuff, as well as some other stuff off Finnish TV.
