No one would ever go back to the archives for this guy - but fantastic hidden gem. Currently on a journey through 96 progressively listening. The European tour definitely starts out in a lack luster way but there are a few hidden gems in the sets - this is the one, one-set opener that is actually great start to finish

1) Divided Sky - bold opener given they are opening act - but great
2) Sample - tight
3) Bowie - exploratory
4) Yar Mar and Funky Bitch - seem rushed

give it a listen, they snuck in three tight little nuggets of enjoyment in this one-set wonder

Phishtraks.com has a great recording of the show. I'm progressively listening through 96 like the reviewer above. The show before this was pretty weak. they headlined. The band lacked energy. listening to this Divided sky is like a whole other band. Its sounds like trey is playing it an octave higher than usual also. It almost sound like a nod to Carlos Santana's ( who was headlining) guitar sound . Even with not much higher to go Trey destroys it. Nice change of pace for one of the first songs he ever wrote.
Sample is played at the same octave . short and sweet
Bowie is sick. the crowd at one point just starts whisling like alot in the beginning trey takes this does what he wants. Thank God he does cuz its pretty gnarley.

I was at this show, the first of two I saw in France that summer. The crowd was NOT receptive to the Divided Sky opener, openly hissing and booing during the quiet parts. The opener lost the audience, which was restless for Carlos the rest of the way. This is in contrast to the fierce Runaway Jim opener in Arles a few nights later, which enthralled the audience and put them in the palm of the band's hand the rest of the set.
