1998PJ Shows

July 10, 1998 Cox Arena – San Diego, CA

Show Notes

Tiny venue, poor sound, GREAT crowd, very ON performance with a few rough spots. ‘Corduroy’ features a completely different intro, starting out with just guitar and then the drums build in. Ed skips the first verse of ‘RVM’ and repeats the second twice, and the second go round is excellent and the jam goes way out and comes back hard! Not a lot of chat, until before ‘Immortality’ Ed says, “hometown boy, Matt Cameron.” ‘Wishlist’ lyric changes: Ed sings “as fortunate as YOU” and instead of “I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds,” he says “sound.” At the end, he sings, “I wish I was a mountain, wishes can come true, I wish I wish I wish I wish … if you ever want to, do …” (San Diego WAS where the original PJ lyrics were written.) ‘Even Flow’ is humorously flubbed–he goes into the chorus too soon but catches himself, and Mike’s wicked solo is reeled back eventually by Stone, with Ed noting, “that’s Mike over there.” ‘Roam’ is a B52s cover, with Ed noting is as “… one of the deepest secrets they’ve hidden in their songs besides ‘tin roof, rusted’” ;) . ‘MFC’ is introduced with, “If you gotta get out, get a small car.” During ‘RitFW,’ he goes off on a sarcastic political rant about how he’s glad our politicians are out there protecting us from flag burning … no need to focus on problems like sewage being poured into the oceans because we’ve got flag burners to deal with. Classic Ed intensity. Mike dedicates ‘Yellow Ledbetter’ to his dad.

Technical Notes
—————

Taper adjusted levels a little in the beginning of the show, and then a few songs in. There
is some clipping in the first few songs, but it’s not audible. Perfect extraction. The only
edits performed were a fade in at the beginning, fade out/in at encore 2 when the taper
paused his DAT, and fade out at the end of the show. There are no fades between disc 1 and
disc 2, so if you are somehow able to get the full first set onto a disc, it will still be
seamless.

This seed is being distributed with this text file, a set of FLAC fingerprints, a set of MD5
sums for the extracted WAV files, and the SHNTOOL reports.

Show Notes:
I don’t remember a tremendous amount about this show other than it was bacchanalian in nature. This was my 6th PJ show in a row, and they truly pulled out all of the stops. If you beg do differ, just listen to the performance of “Rockin’ In The Free World” from this night. It was probably as close to the craziness of Indio ’93 that was ever witnessed by myself. Not to mention the rest of the set was Yield-solid. Had great seats, and the recording reflects that. The PJ community was (and at times still can be) rather ‘uppity’ back in the day, so I hardly circulated any of my masters from the ’98 tour (Albuquerque being the exception). Probably my 2nd best ’98 PJ recording, next to Birmingham, AL (which was recorded from 3rd row, Stone’s side).

He most definitely jams. His name is Dennis. Throw him alms and praise for uploading my trash. I just push the buttons. More to come. Much, much more…
