5) Badge
6) I Can’t Hold Out
7) Tell the Truth
8) I Shot the Sheriff (fade out)

10) Crossroads


This was an outdoor show that featured Ross, Foghat, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Eric Clapton.
The version of Crossroads here is very unusual, even for this tour.

This show was included in inferior quality on the 3CD boot “Three Smiles”. The version
on that set is 4 minutes longer only because the tape runs slow.

Micah Nelson – guitar & backing vocals
Corey McCormick – bass & backing vocals
Anthony Logerfo – drums
Tato Melgar – percussion

Taper Notes:
– “Down by the River” was played for almost 36 minutes.
– “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?” was dedicated to Willie Nelson in honor of his 83rd birthday.
– Beale is right on the banks of the Mississippi in a flat park on the riverbank, so more of an “open air” sound vs. echoes.
– Neil’s first show in Memphis since 1983.

Mastering Notes:
– Some annoying crowd chatter, and at one point Steve tells a girl to quit bumping him because he’s filming.
– Some “swirling” of the stereo effect, likely due to the distance Steve was from the stage in an open air venue.

It also contains two bonus tracks from Van’s 4/29/96 Supper Club show, a week earlier, from an excellent digital audience recording.
