ucpete This show is important for historic reasons with all the debuts (First LxL! First Ghost! First Izabella!), and is a nice show, but it's far from an essential addition to your collection. It's a transitional show -- they've mastered the Billy Breathes material (Theme, Billy, and Taste are all excellent) and are just getting their feet wet with the SotG material. They also start to bring a little of the funk that would explode later that year. Check out the unfinished Chalkdust jam that eerily hearkens back to the Wolfman's from the epic 3/1/97 show that would later be parsed into Slip Stitch and Pass -- but instead of -> JJLC, we get -> Ghost [debut]. Nice. Did I mention this is the first Izabella?

Oh, and @pnumatic, I don't think that's a Frankenstein tease. That's how that Sly and the Family Stone song goes. Pull it up on YouTube and skip to about 2:20...
