nichobert Have you ever found yourself saying "I'd like to hear a Mike's Song jam into Bouncing Around The Room?"

If so, this is the one set show for you. I love the European festival & opening slot shows from 96 & 97. Some interesting minutiae tended to pop up and instantly become forgotten forever.

The post-peak segment of Mikes seems like it's being drawn into Bouncing's gravitational well a few times before finally landing there. I'm going to go ahead and make an executive decision to call this a 3 minute Bouncing Intro Jam and officially dethrone 6/9/00 (Different Guitar Solo) as the Best Bouncing Ever.

Now, if you ever happen to talk to Cactus, remind him to play that 40 Minute Bouncing that I've been sending him postcards about for the past 7 years. At some point in time you just have to give in, Cactus. Wave that purple handkerchief of surrender.

The_Ghost Interesting that during this series of shows opening for Santana they played their longest on 7/7 and their shortest on 7/9. back to back shows. Okay, not that interesting, but it's something.

Mike's Song is the only thing I would take away from this show and listen to again. Nothing wrong with the show, just not a lot going on for it.

Theme is what you would expect, transition to poor heart isn't great, but it could just be the tracks I downloaded. They did a better job with this at Deer Creek 6-19-95.
