Great live version of the classic Cold Chisel song from The Melbourne Music Show 1988. Barnsey hits a shocking note in there but it's still a ripping live performance. You can almost hear Farnham's monitors screaming when Barnsey kicks in.

Love how John is so confident in his back up singers to let them go for it & then just hand over to Jimmy.  Two fantastic Aussie artists doing a great Aussie iconic song.  But Jimmy could ease up on the screaming - even though this is still in the era when he could sing if he chose to.
