Add Review Show Setlist

harpua78While fall/holiday '97 gets all the love these days (and certainly deserves it - nearly every show from the Went through NYE is bliss), it would be nice to see more '96 boards released by the band (FL and Vegas are out there of course, but rather atypical shows with guests and such).

This would be a great 1996 release choice. The second set is still my favorite from any two-set show I saw. (8/17/97 II being tops on my list.) It was pure madness. The Bowie that starts it off is full throttle rock with the Philly crowd locked in with the band (Spectrum shows were always great). Gin. Lizards. A YEM for the ages. And the finest rock and roll lighting I've ever witnessed during Harpua (Kuroda = Uber Demon). Sadly, I've never found a AUD that does the music justice.

The night before this was a great '96 show, as were 10/22 and 11/27. Here's hoping that 1996 will get some love soon--and that this year's 12/29 at MSG is as monster a night as this one was 15 years ago.
