Show Recording Notes
The several spots of diginoise have been patched with the analog source…the end result is not perfect, but it is much better than the diginoise. The reason for the “?” in the source lineage right before the dat, is because the main source used has unfortunately been compressed in some way (either by being put onto a minidisk or by being mp3 compressed). It is the only complete circulating recording however. Some other minor pops have also been removed. Very special thanks to Vikas for uncovering this gem.
Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons)
After a nice ‘Release’ opening, Ed says, “We’re in a beautiful place. Why go home?” leading to guess what song? After a few opening licks of ‘Breath’ are played, the song is announced as ‘A Breath and a Scream,’ as it frequently was called then. Later Ed asks, “Did we meet some of you guys last night? Cause the tickets were good for both nights, right? That’s how I wanted it to work out.” After repeating, “I’m not crazy, I’m not crazy,” they launch into ‘Even Flow.’ A few ‘Hard To Imagine’ riff are played after ‘SOLAT,’ and an improv based on ‘Hard To Imagine’ follows ‘Black.’ Ed tells the crowd, “You’re all gonna die some day; you’re all gonna die fat and old … it’s true,” leading to ‘Alive,’ followed by some guitar noodling. Ed compliments the “pit” likening it to a “Norelco razor” with the three spinning heads. The second set opens with a jam with lyrics based loosely on ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me.’ Ed thanks everyone who they’ve met and says it makes them want to move there and “I wanna have your baby.” After ‘TITFW,’ Ed says goodbye and then asks the lights to be turned back up: “I wanna get a picture of these guys.”
