Me too. I've always loved it. My memory is crap, but I remember buying it at Kmart, the day it came out, and I couldn't get the cellophane off of it fast enough, when I got out of the store.

Uh, no? Isn't that where it stops, and you can faintly hear Christine ask if he broke a string?

The reason many of us prefer the live album is because the tempo of most of the songs is faster than they play today. Over My Head is the extreme example. However, Rhiannon is on fire and probably the fastest they ever played it. Say You Love Me is also played much faster than today. Even Dreams, Dont Stop, and I'm So Afraid was played a nudge faster than today. This is why I am not thrilled about a Dance re-issue. (Yawn). The songs are slower and so studio sounding that it ruins the raw live sound of the 1980 album. Yet another reason the 1970s ruled. LIVE ARENA ROCK

You're right, I believe they re-cut that version at the same time and it has a solo. {Meaning it was a rehearsal} But I have the bootleg not the official version. I think it's Paris. Am I right about Paris?

Correct. Dreams and Don't Stop were Paris.

IMHO for the song to work live, it needs to be a rocker like the 1980 album version. It needs to be up tempo like its sister song Over My Head on the same album. The album version is fine but in concert it needs the faster pace that they have not played that way since the 1970s.
I only have maybe 4 or 5 shows from the BTM tour, but they all have "Save Me"; I had no idea it was later dropped!

Classic Mac... drop a new track from the album they're actively supporting (a single, no less!) in favor of a safe oldie.

It was during the last leg and during the Farewell tour that it was dropped or swapped out with Say You Love Me. The first night back on tour after Christine's father's passing Save Me was still in the set. It was dropped in the last month of the tour. I think since it was the bands supposed ending, they were throwing in some classic stuff over an album they were over promoting. At least they replaced it. Sometimes Stevie or the band just drop songs and the set just gets shorter.

I remember being disappointed Save Me was not performed when I saw them in November 1990. From the videos I have seen online, the song was excellent and was just like the studio version.

I always wonder how they make those decisions. Of course, we can suspect that it is Mick's idea, because of his commercial interests, but is the setlist defined democratically? how do they come to an agreement?

These days, I would guess that Old I'm Not The Boss tells Irving, then Irving tells them.
