Arisen from the ashes of an early line-up of The Sisters Of Mercy and founded by Craig Adams and Wayne Hussey in 1986, The Mission established its own distinctive profile at a very early stage. Apart from their very successful albums like God's Own Medicine (1986), Children (1988) and Carved In Sand (1989) in particular, The Mission established primarily as a live act, making both Rockpalast concerts essential viewing for a fan. Without a doubt, The Mission had its first zenith in 1989/90 when the band entered the premier league of rock with the album Carved In Sand. With Butterfly On A Wheel the band landed one of their biggest hits and live they were steadily turning into a celebrated stadium rock act. This was exactly the time when the first concert of this set was recorded - during the Deliverance tour. The near original line-up is consisting of Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams, Mick Brown, David Wolfenden and Paul Etchells. Not only does the show at the Philipshalle Düsseldorf on November 24, 1990, reflect the tremendous enthusiasm of the band as well as the density of The Mission's sound but it also contains all the recorded classics such as Severina, Butterfly On A Wheel or Tower Of Strength; and their congenial version of Neil Young's song Like A Hurricane. This concert was recorded about five years after their first Rockpalast performance and is a good example of their versatility: Not only does Wayne Hussey present himself with a short haircut but from the original line-up only the drummer Mick Brown remained. Despite the expanded line-up, The Mission delivered with songs such as Hands Across The Ocean and Deliverance. But the real brilliance is revealed with goose bump creating interactions with the audience in touching ballads such as Like A Child Again and a searing rendition of the song Swoon which has reflections of the Bowie classic Heroes.
