Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1997 Summer European Tour."
Nonetheless, it feels like a long set, much longer than the next night (I dont know how the two compare but maybe it was the quality of the recording that was really beginning to get to me!). We see Dogs Stole Things and Limb By Limb again, just like every other show on the tour so far. But the tiny light at the end of the tunnel is the fantastic Theme From the Bottom. Totally unreal version...Trey stays melodic the whole time and the band successfully follows. It's too bad the quality of this recording sucks, as I would assume this Theme would be higher on most people's lists.
Check out the Theme but move on to the next night where we get a breathe of fresh air with an awesome SBD and some top notch jamming...
