Mikesgroover Landing right in the middle of an intense touring period, there's virtually nothing distinctive about the band's first performance in Eugene, save the placement of some songs. The recording I listened to seems to have a slight pitch issue, but regardless none of the material performed on this night could be considered a noteworthy version.

The Forbins>Mockingbird contains no story embellishments and Bowie features some machine-gun style, repetitive riffing from Trey that's typical of the era.Not sure what prompted a set-closing BBFCFM or the double encore, but you're not missing much by skipping this show entirely.
