*********** Holmdel > Hartford 2000 ************





Well folks, it took me long enough to get around to it, but here it is.  Although I had initially resisted this project because the sources weren't ideal,  I realized the sources I had were mostly likely the best, or at least most popular, ones available for these shows.  I had two sources for each show and carefully examined which would result in the best remaster.  I would say in terms of audio quality, 6/30/00 sounds the best....but you can be the judge of that.

I won't go into detail about the remastering process of each show, but as usual have included the EQ settings used and a track from each original source used.  Enjoy!

Wednesday, 06/28/2000 PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ

Set 1: Chalk Dust Torture, The Sloth, Taste, Bathtub Gin, Piper, If I Could

Set 2: Down with Disease -> Harry Hood > Gotta Jibboo, When the Circus Comes, Mike's Song, Albuquerque > Weekapaug Groove

Encore: First Tube > Loving Cup


Notes: During a glowstick ‘war’ in Hood, Trey caught a few glowsticks and threw them back into the crowd, eliciting a huge cheer from the crowd. Mike’s Song contained a mid-jam ‘break’, another jam segment, and then another break that led into Albuquerque. If I Could was played for the first time since July 31, 1998 (123 shows).

 Thursday, 06/29/2000  PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ

Set 1: Funky Bitch > Wilson, Limb By Limb, Drowned -> Rock and Roll

Set 2: Birds of a Feather -> Catapult > Heavy Things, Sand, Meatstick > Cities -> Walk Away > Run Like an Antelope > Frankenstein, Wading in the Velvet Sea

Encore: Character Zero


Notes: Birds contained a tease of A Love Supreme and was unfinished. Catapult was sung over an atypical jam that bridged Birds and Heavy Things. This gig featured an eventful Meatstick: Sofi Dillof made a guest appearance for the Meatstick dance. Several fans ran on stage and were chased off by Pete Carini and then by Bart Butler, both of whom Trey thanked. Trey improvised a verse noting: “There’s no song about Paul Languedoc, and there’s no song about Kuroda; there’s only one about Carini, and his lumpy head!” Trey then jokingly talked about the Meatstick Dance being a fad in Japan; the band subsequently sung a verse in Japanese. The lyrics to Cities were altered to reference Tokyo, the Meatstick Dance, and sushi. Antelope included Meatstick teases in the intro. At the end of the second set, Trey thanked the crew (particularly Carini, for being a good sport). Trey mentioned how much of a “home show” it is for the band to play in Holmdel, and led one final Meatstick tease.

Friday, 06/30/2000  Meadows Music Theatre, Hartford, CT

Set 1: Ha Ha Ha, AC/DC Bag > Tweezer > Runaway Jim, Sneakin' Sally through the Alley > Ginseng Sullivan > Guyute, Golgi Apparatus > Tweezer Reprise > Possum

Set 2: Halley's Comet > The Mango Song > Twist, The Inlaw Josie Wales, Back on the Train > Makisupa Policeman, Farmhouse, Sleeping Monkey > David Bowie

Encore: Cavern


Notes: The ending of AC/DC Bag was unusual, as Trey repeated the closing guitar tweaks before breaking into the Tweezer riff. The key phrase in Makisupa was a play on the blues classic One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, with "Big Fat Doob" replacing "Beer." Cavern included Tweezer teases and a Moby Dick tease after Trey introduced Fishman under that name. Halley’s included a tease of Things That Make You Go Hmmm from Mike and Runaway Jim included Nellie Kane teases.


*ONE NOTE* anyone who DL'd either the ACC or FLAC versions of 6/30/00 before 6:35 AM EST on 7/28 will have a very slightly messed up playlist when you drag and drop into Itunes or any other audio player - Golgi will accidentally come first and Sally will come near the end. I made a mistake in assigning the track and disc numbers, and have uploaded the fixed folders. The links have been updated. You can either re-download or, what would be a lot easier, just change the disc & track tags within iTunes or whichever player you're using.  The correct disc and track numbers are in the .txt file.  Sorry about that!

Thank you so much! Obviously the Megaupload links for the Hartford mp3s are dead and I couldn't find them on your Google Drive page. Is there a new link I'm missing?
