No Code Bootleg #01

First bootleg from the American Tour in support of No Code. This was the second 96 Seattle show after the album launch show at the tiny Showbox venue.

Enjoy, but be warned, i have no patience for people who complain about trivial things like sound quality, FLAC vs. mp3 etc. So, unless you want to spoil the fun for everyone, SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

TwoFeetThick Notes: The show is a technical nightmare, with microphones, guitars and lights all failing at multiple times throughout the show. Scratching the setlist after 'Who You Are,' Ed tries guiding the band through the more familiar waters of older songs.
Even Stone's guitar fails during 'Mankind' with Scully trying desperately to change out his equipment while Stone continues strumming and singing his heart out, appearing to be oblivious to the problems.

Stone is having a blast, Jack has found his drumming groove with PJ now, Jeff is smiling and laughing during most of the show, as is Mike, although he never gets into any of his usually fantastic solos (although he tosses in a 'Sympathy for the Devil' riff just before 'In My Tree' and 'River of Deceit' before 'Daughter'), and Ed basically saves the show by keeping the techs and other band members functioning.
His voice is clean (though the sound is poor) and he is playing guitar more often and more skillfully than the '95 shows. Ed tosses out a funny little "mou mou" soundcheck after 'Daughter' when changing microphones.
