*Notes: I received these tapes as "ANA-2", with no other lineage. This source is the same one usually listed as being sourced from an audience-shot video. Going by the circulating clips, I don't believe that this source is actually from that video. The video clips were shot from the side of the stage, with the sound captured up close and off-axis. Whereas, the recording here sounds like it was recorded from the back of the venue, next to the bar. In a few spots you can even hear the sound of bottles being cleared away. In any case, this version has more crowd noise before and after the show, and doesn't have noise-reduction or fades between songs like other versions do.

The band captured all three Wisconsin shows (6/9 and 6/10 at Unicorn in Milwaukee, and 6/11 at Club de Wash in Madison) via soundboard. Milwaukee's Atomic Records videotaped all three shows as well, and circulated a rough mix of a few songs called "Three Days In June", which was included on Fruit Bat Salad Volume 1. Some of the soundboard songs from these shows were circulated via the Mashed Potatoes set, but nothing else has since come out.

These gigs were a turning point for the band, marking the shift from the Gish period towards the Siamese Dream era. This first show at Unicorn features the earliest known performances of Disarm, Plume, and Frail and Bedazzled, and the only known performance of Bullet Train to Osaka. The band probably played some of these new songs at the Chicago (5/30) and Champaign (6/8) shows just before these gigs, but no recordings circulate for those. At this first night in Milwaukee, the band played past midnight, so included a rendition of Happy Birthday for Jimmy, in honor of his birthday on 6/10. After these gigs, the band would travel to Detroit, where Billy's favorite guitar would be stolen outside of St Andrew's Hall. He would replace that guitar with a newer model 57 Stratocaster reissue. That guitar would soon get fitted with higher gain Lace Sensor pickups and be paired with a Big Muff fuzz pedal, the combination that would provide the signature sound heard all over Siamese Dream.

Of course, it would be great if the complete soundboards and videos for these shows were to finally come out. The show here is a top ten performance in the band's live history.

MD5 Checksum included.

Thanks!

How about this banter: "This here's another new song. It's called Frail and Bedazzled, and it's about being in the spotlight of your mother's love"



"try to understand
the ones i love and their demands
it's so unfair when they can't see
that i'm the boy that really needs
their love (has failed)"

I never realized this song was about his childhood.

Pretty sure it's "the ones that love and their demands" Although I don't think that minor detail changes much. Still a good analysis.
